11 MORE GREAT VOMIT SCENES ON FILM

Thursday, March 26 by

Not too long ago, Screen Junkies posted what we thought were “The 9 Best Vomit Scenes on Film.”  Readers were able to keep their lunches down enough to post in the comments section, and suggested some fantastic films that they thought belonged on that list.  So, because we love our readers so very much – especially those who contribute their thoughts to the site – we decided to put together an all-user generated list of puke scenes.  It just goes to show what we can all achieve when we collaborate.  This is why, when the internet was invented, the scientists high-fived each other a little extra harder than normal. Screen Junkies presents… The Vomit List: Barf 2.  Editor's Note: These are in no particular order, except that we saved the best for last. SUPER TROOPERS

The trailer for the Ang Lee-directed, Demitri Martin-starring Taking Woodstock is online.  The trailer features the likes of Emile Hirsch doing his best Tom Cruise in Born on the Fourth of July… … and also Liev Schreiber, who looks a lot like Samantha Morton when he wears women's clothing and lets his hair down. But it's not as uncanny as Shelley Duvall and Brazilian soccer star Ronaldinho…Check out the full trailer, along with a very important introduction by Demitri Martin after the jump.

JESUS RETURNS TO KICK ASS WITH MILLAR AND VAUGHN

Thursday, March 26 by

After working with him on Kick-Ass, director Matthew Vaughn is looking to reteam with real-life comic book hero Mark Millar for another comic book adaptation.  So says the Hollywood Reporter.  That next project would be Millar's "American Jesus" comic book, which centers on the return of Christ to the modern world, where he squares off in the ultimate smackdown with the Antichrist, in order to save humanity. Millar's book was originally a 2006 three-issue miniseries called "Chosen." When Millar decided to continue the story as a trilogy of miniseries, the series became known as "American Jesus." The second issue is subtitled "The Resurrection" and will be coming out later this year.Here's the rest of the morning's good news:Universal and Imagine Get Lovecrafty (Empire)Jon Favreau gives tour of his house, shows off his toys (/Film)Russell Brand Gets to the Greek with Blunt in Hand (Moviehole) International Star Trek Posters have beamed up!

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH RAWSON MARSHALL THURBER: “MAGNUM P.I. WILL HAVE NO SHORT-SHORTS, NO CAMEOS, NO MUSTACHES!”

Wednesday, March 25 by

This afternoon, Screen Junkies had the pleasure of speaking with writer-director Rawson Marshall Thurber ("Terry Tate: Office Linebacker," Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story and the upcoming Mysteries of Pittsburgh).  Much of the conversation focused on his upcoming big screen adaptation of Magnum P.I., which will hopefully start pre-production late this year.  The shocker of the day?  Three of the beloved series' 1980s-bound hallmarks – short-shorts, star cameos and 'staches – will NOT be in the film!  Before making any judgments, read the entire transcript of our chat – which includes some tasty tidbits on Thurber's other projects like Elfquest – after the jump!

WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE TRAILER WILL MAKE YOU CRY… IF YOU ARE A WUSS LIKE ME

Wednesday, March 25 by

Holy Sendak-by-way-of-Spike Jonze.  I just watched the new trailer for Where the Wild Things Are, and I'm simultaneously trying to make the goosebumps go away while finding the right superlatives.  Can't… multitask… too… enamored.  Dammit!  You know, sometimes a trailer is constructed so delicately, and yet hits so hard… like a velvet hammer wrapped in silk.  Or in this case, a furry paw that smacks you… in the heeeeart.  Throw in a little Arcade Fire music and my eyes are fire hydrants.  I think I need to work some things out with my therapist.  Oh, right.  I stopped going to him when I took this job.Enjoy a good joyful sob (and the trailer) after the jump.
