Move Over Killdozer

Thursday, March 5 by

The trend in horror movies today is to pick up the pace, for example, fast zombies and fast Jason. I even heard there’s a movie called Fun Run Frankenstein in the works. However, these films have left behind a certain void. There are practically no horror flicks left for those of us who prefer a more sluggish killer, a more stand in one place and barely do anything killer. Until now. Behold! The trailer for Crawler; it is a movie about a shape-shifting alien that tries to devour humanity by taking on the form of a mostly stationary bulldozer. After all, there is one in every household. So if you are a fan of listless killing machines, buy a scratch-off because today is your lucky day.

WB Launches 24-Hr Channel in India

Thursday, March 5 by

Beginning March 15, Warner Bros. and Turner will partner to launch WB, a 24-hour Warner-branded channel that will bring its TV and film library to the country. [Variety]  If you work in the film or TV industry – don't worry.  They only outsource real jobs to India. We at Screen Junkies would like to think that eventually the channel will open up to original content, and one of our sources sent us this top secret proposal for a 2009 WB India Fall Lineup.  Seems like they're headed in that direction.See it after the jump:

Thursday, March 5 by

So whatever happened to Sawyer and the gang since Locke pushed the old whirly-wheel? Well, according to this episode, their time jumps have been fixed, but unfortunately they're about thirty years before the time they crashed on the island.  We jumps back and forth between present time and three years from now, watching the present Sawyer & Co. encounter both Others and Dharma, while future Sawyer & Co. are members of the Dharma Initiative, trying to help a a pregnant woman in labor, with romance blossoming on the side between two most unlikely lovers…and it's all in this week's Lost, after the jump.

Women of Watchmen: Carla Gugino

Wednesday, March 4 by

Tuesday, we gave you a glimpse of Watchmen's Malin Akerman, a.k.a. The Silk Spectre II.  Now meet her mom… the original Silk Spectre, played by the shapely Carla Gugino.Carla's the rare sort of actress that shows her assets in adult fare like Watchmen and Sin City, then covers herself and relies only on acting talent in kid flicks like the upcoming Race to Witch Mountain, or the Spy Kids franchise.  Though I did hear that for Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over, they had to frame Gugino from the neck up so she didn't accidentally gouge anyone's eyes out in the theater.  Ga Ga Guginooooo!More pics after the jump…

With Joaquin Phoenix pursuing a mushroom-induced musical career, we thought that we would take a moment to point out the missteps taken by those before him. These vanity projects should serve as a warning to any actor who has rock and roll dreams to stick with their dayjob. And a reminder to all of us that fame makes people crazy.

Megan Fox Gets Wet for Fox Atomic

Tuesday, March 3 by

This just in from Variety: Transformers 2 babe Megan Fox is attached to star in "Fathom," an adaptation of the Michael Turner-created comicbook, for Fox Atomic.   According to Variety, "Fox would play Aspen Matthews, who was found abandoned on a ship and is adopted by a military man. She becomes a champion swimmer and marine biologist who comes of age realizing she has water-based powers and is part of an underwater race"  I heard through the grapevine that Michael Phelps was up for a cameo but his role in the remake of Up In Smoke conflicted.  He will be replaced by the dolphin from Seaquest DSV.

Haunting in Connecticut Poster

Here's a glimpse at the creep-tastic Haunting of Connecticut motion poster, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies.  I know I wouldn't want a ghost shoving its way out of my mouth, but then again, I just passed a kidney stone last week.  Nah, I'm gonna give it to ghost-out-the-mouth… that's way worse.  

Tuesday Night Preview

Tuesday, March 3 by

Why no new shows? The screwiness of the Digital Conversion has forced the "TV Sweeps", usually scheduled for February, to be pushed back to March 5th. In the meantime, TNT pretty much plays entertaining movies every night, and an epic monkey battle rages on tonight in Dark Days in Monkey City. Your preview after the break.

Women of Watchmen: Malin Akerman

Tuesday, March 3 by

Who watches the Watchmen?  I'm guessing about everybody, this weekend -  Including homeless people.  Admit it.  If the city sends "interior decorators" to redo your bus shelter once a month with shiny new Watchmen "wallpaper," you'd panhandle just a little extra hard to see what all the buzz is about. And then there's the film's luscious leading lady – Malin Akerman, who'll be kicking ass and breaking hearts as Laurie Jupiter a.k.a. The Silk Spectre II. See more pics of Ms. Malin after the jump…

New Terminator: Salvation Trailer

Monday, March 2 by

The new Terminator: Salvation trailer just launched today.  I watched.  I peed a little.  I suggest you sit on some Scotch Brite™ and watch, too.  Explosions.  Nine Inch Nails music, plus Christian Bale angrily yelling, which we can never get enough of.  Late in the trailer, he implores someone off-screen that “if we don’t stay the course, we’re dead.  We’re all DEAD!”  I think it’s behind-the-scenes footage from the day catering changed the lunch menu from steak to salmon.
