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!

SEAN PENN TO PLAY LARRY IN MGM’S THREE STOOGES FLICK!

Wednesday, March 25 by

Well, one member of the holy triumvirate of slapstick has been cast in MGM and the Farrellys' Three Stooges film.   According to Variety, Oscar-winner Sean Penn will play Larry fine, and the studio is in talks with Jim Carrey to play Jerome "Curly" Howard.  Jim'll have to soitanly pack on the pounds – forty of them, to be exact.  And rounding out the threesome will be Benicio del Toro as Moe, if everything goes as planned.

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.

South Park’s 13 Most Twisted Kenny Kills

Wednesday, March 25 by

One of the most timeless TV characters has to be the little boy in the orange hooded sweatshirt Kenny McCormick, constantly beset by death in any number of ways, whether it be a bitten off-head, sliced in half, or a dreaded STD. And through it all, Parker and Stone have constantly innovated the way this unfortunate youngster kicks the bucket, never once letting the joke become stale or boring or predictable.  They structured a movie plot around him, actually killed him for an entire season, then let at least one full season pass by without his death.  Nowadays you always look forward to a Kenny death, and it’s in honor of this immortal/mortal little boy that Screen Junkies presents to you the most inventive Kenny deaths of all time.

LET’S NOT NEGLECT THE ORPHAN TRAILER

Tuesday, March 24 by

The trailer for The Orphan has been hanging out on the 'nets for a little while now, and Screen Junkies have been feeling really guilty about not showing it any love.  It has tinges of The Good Son, as well as Joshua.  (It even features Vera Farmiga in an eerily similar role to the one she played in that latter film.)  But it could end up being a bit more supernatural than its predecessors…  Adopt your own thoughts after the jump…

STAR WARS’ AT-ATs: THEY MAKE GREAT PETS

Tuesday, March 24 by

Manchester-based photographer Nick Drummond has snuck behind enemy lines to uncover the secret life of the AT-AT Walker from Star Wars – and it seems like we might have been giving them a bad wrap.  I guess years of breeding have brought them down to a more manageable size, but I still wouldn't trust them around your Empire Strikes Back Rebel Alliance action figures.  They're still bound to get trounced like a mouse under a cat's claw. In his interview with the Star Wars blog, Drummond said:"I took a few photos before I handed everything on [to my nephew, as a gift] and noticed that the AT-AT was very photogenic. As it was getting on for Christmas I took a few more shots hoping to make one into a puzzle for a present. I was much happier with the results than I expected and the ideas just haven’t stopped yet. Turns out my nephew already has an AT-AT, so I get to keep ATilla."I'll bet Drummond's nephew never ever saw ATilla.  Check out a handful of Uncle Nick's handiwork after the jump.
