The Rise and Fall of Benjamin Linus

Wednesday, April 8 by

I.L.M.’S “HARVESTER” CONCEPT ART FROM TERMINATOR SALVATION

Wednesday, April 8 by

More Terminator goodies today to top off the news the Ahnuld will be back for Terminator Salvation.  Now the kind robots over at io9 posted this cool concept art image of the Harvester from Terminator Salvation, courtesy of Industrial Light & Magic's artistes.  According to the Terminator Wikia, "Harvesters are non-humanoid hunter/killer units produced by Skynet sometime before 2018. They were large tank like structures that would capture humans in conjunction with Moto-terminators. They took the humans to lab testing for their stem cells. This research on humans led to the creation of the Series-800.  If someone would escape, they would be blasted to smithereens by the robots shoulder mounted canon from a great distance." Check out some more atwork of the harvesters doing their dirty deeds after the jump.

“PAPER HEART” WITH MICHAEL CERA AND CHARLYNE YI HITS AUGUST 7th

Wednesday, April 8 by

Paper Heart, starring Michael Cera and his comedienne girlfriend, Charlyne Yi, opens August 7th, and Overture Films sent has released some new images.  The film played Sundance this year and won the Waldo Salt Award for Best Screenplay.  Previous winners included The Squid & The Whale, Memento, and The Station Agent.  Apparently the film was improv'd mostly, so I'm sure there are a handful of seething indie filmmakers still listening to Iron & Wine albums in an attempt to "process" the travesty.  Read the synopsis of the film and see some more pics after the jawmp!

Paper Heart

Wednesday TV Preview

Wednesday, April 8 by

TV's got a delicious feast for your eyes tonight–new episodes of Scrubs, South Park, Lost, and Reno 911!, and the premiere of a new NYC cop drama called The Unusuals. Make sure to catch the premiere of that along with it's main competitor Southland (premiering on NBC tomorrow tonight) too get your full dosage grizzly Police action.

“BRUNO” DIRECTOR TO HAVE LEMON PARTY AT COLUMBIA PICTURES

Wednesday, April 8 by

According to Variety, Larry Charles, director of Borat, Bruno, Religulous and several episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm, is taking on old people sex as his next project.  Winter's Discontent "centers on a sexually frustrated widower who moves into a retirement community with his best buddy — looking to get laid."There's definitely an opportunity for a bingo party gone horribly, horribly, distastefully wrong in this concept, and it's certainly been Charles' M.O. to push the envelope.

According to MTV, actor Terry Crews has spilled the beans that Arnold Schwarzenegger will in fact be making a brief appearance (also known as a "cameo") in Terminator Salvation.  Terry, you son of a bitch! But wait!  Crews also confirms that he'll be teaming up with Arnold in yet another action flick… Find out which after the jump.

ECONOMICALLY DOWNTURNED MORNING NEWS

Wednesday, April 8 by

Citing the turbulent economy, The Huffington Post reports that Nicolas Cage has been forced to sell one of his two castles.Hold the phone… Crazy-ass Nicolas Cage owns castles? Man, that's like super-LARPing! In my mind's eye he runs around the halls of that place pretending to be Count Chocula. And there's no force on Earth that can convince me otherwise. Hey look, more morning news!Captain Kirk is horny. (MTV)Eminem is Spock. (io9)Optimal Prime is an asshole. (Holy Taco)The Two Garys join Iron Man 2. (/film) Michael Myers is letting his pores breathe. (Dread Central) Tracy Morgan is profiting off psychosis. (TV Squad)Gore Verbinski is over pirates. (Latino Review) Kal Penn is boring. (Reuters) 

NIC CAGE FEVAAAAAAAH!

Tuesday, April 7 by

Over the years, The Land of the Rising Sun has turned to Nic Cage to help promote Pachinko machines, and the result could not be more disturbing. He plays piano, seriously freaks out upon seeing blonde triplets, and even head butts an alien robot thing. The only thing he doesn't do is don a bear mascot suit and punch a woman in the face. I suppose we’re all pretty used to Nic Cage screaming nonsense by now, but it’s comforting to know he’ll always try to surprise us. You may say he does these things for the money. I say he does them because he’s already won his Oscar, and he can. Check out the clips after the jump.

10 PORN CHICKS WHO SHOULD GO MAINSTREAM

Tuesday, April 7 by

On April 30th, Steven Soderbergh's The Girlfriend Experience becomes available On Demand, and then in limited theatrical release on May 22nd.  WATCH THE TRAILER HERE.  The film stars adult film actress Sasha Grey, and is her first experience working in the mainstream.  We at Screen Junkies thought to ourselves that if Sasha can act in a mainstream feature film, then there are some other porn starlets out there who'd have a place in the broader market as well.  Without further ado, here they are.
