JOHN STAMOS IS DEVELOPING A BIG SCREEN “FULL HOUSE”

Monday, June 8 by

The NY Daily News reports that John Stamos is interested in bringing his sitcom Full House to the big screen. The actor is looking to recast the extended Tanner Clan with Steve Carell, James Franco and Tracy Morgan as Danny, Uncle Jessy, and Uncle Joey respectively. I'm not excited to see this happen at all. If you're going to bring anything back, bring back Manimal.Spiderman rumor mill turns again. (NY Post)Mickey Rourke is awesome. (Guardian UK)Monsters Inc 2 in the works. Billy Crystal works again.

Colbert in Iraq, Stewart Fights at Home

Sunday, June 7 by

The big news in basic cable this weekend was that Stephen Colbert, comedian and host of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report" has arrived in Iraq for a week of taping the program from an actual war zone.  It's a bold move on Comedy Central's part and, depending on your definition of "war zone," potentially a very brave move on Colbert, himself.  But some could argue that Colbert still has a lot of work to do if he wants to rival his colleague, "The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart in the race to be dubbed a Real American Hero. Loyal reader Ron Najor made such an argument in an impassioned email sent to Screen Junkies this weekend, and we liked it so much, we thought we'd publish it.  Unlike the majority of posts on SJ, this is a completely serious rant.  But don’t panic.  We embedded some funny clips.

‘THE HANGOVER’ REVIEW

Friday, June 5 by

“Oh my God…” That was what the woman sitting behind me in the theater kept muttering as we watched The Hangover together.  I have to admit, I had a similar reaction to this clever and raunchy comedy, albeit a silent one.  I can understand why Zach Galifianakis’s ass might elicit such a response, verbal or internal.  In a world of reimaginings and adaptations, it was refreshing to experience an original piece of material taking full advantage of its potential.  The concept is so simple it’s a wonder no one’s thought of it before, but hallelujah for the people out there like Todd Phillips who get creative when delivering big laughs.

‘LAND OF THE LOST’ REVIEW

Friday, June 5 by

  If you're reading this during Land of the Lost's opening weekend and happened to have come here from our homepage, you may have noticed the GIANT LAND OF THE LOST AD enveloping it.  So, for those of you who think our advertisers dictate our reviews, you probably shouldn't read on.  (And those of you who thought our "Best/Worst Movie Time Machines" piece was a thinly-veiled ad for Land of the Lost, you should just stop reading the site entirely.)  Because I genuinely liked Land of the Lost.

HIGH TENSION! NEW CLIPS & IMAGES FROM ‘THE HURT LOCKER’

Friday, June 5 by

Today, Summit released two new clips and six new stills from the upcoming Kathryn Bigelow-directed war movie, The Hurt Locker, opening June 26th.  The first clip, entitled "Die Comfortably," features loose-cannon Staff Sgt. William James (the badass Jeremy Renner) resigning himself to the fact that if the bomb he's diffusing goes off, his armor isn't doing squat to save his life.  The other clip, which you can watch after the jump, is called "Cell Phone, Two O'clock," and gives a tiny clip of the film's tension quotient, as St. Matt Thompson (Guy Pearce) – bedecked in full blast suit and all – is compromised by an insurgent with a cell phone-cum-detonator.  And the guy's got Thompson's number… on speed dial…  Check out the clip after the jump.                      We'll have a review for anxiety-inducing The Hurt Locker coming soon, but suffice it to say my sphincter was clenched the entire movie so as to avoid dropping a deuce in the pristine Wilshire Screening Room.  And I want to be invited back there.

CONAN’S TONIGHT SHOW BROADCASTS LIVE FROM SUPER MARIO WORLD

Friday, June 5 by

 Brilliant find by Serious Lunch. The new Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien set looks exactly like Super Mario Bros 3. Which is fitting because Conan himself looks remarkably like Nintendo Power magazine's Nester.Here are your other Friday morning headlines…  Chris Pine may hop onboard Unstoppable. (Empire) Predator reboot wants Arnie. (Cinema Blend) Nothing is sacred. Bladerunner also getting the prequel treatment. (io9) Michael Bay can buy and sell you.

MIKE TYSON’S ‘HANGOVER’ SET TOUR

Thursday, June 4 by

EDITOR'S NOTE: After posting what we thought was a funny riff on Mike Tyson – essentially a fake "on set journal" kept by the famed fighter during his work on The Hangover - some of our readers made it known that in late May, Tyson suffered the tragic loss of his 4-year-old daughter, Exodus.  We agree with these readers that right now is not the time to be placing a humorous spotlight on Tyson, and have removed the original post.  Screen Junkies offers our sincere condolences to Tyson and his family.

‘IT MIGHT GET LOUD’ WITH JIMMY PAGE, JACK WHITE, AND U2′S THE EDGE

Thursday, June 4 by

IT MIGHT GET LOUD TRAILER – Watch more Funny Videos In directing An Inconvenient Truth, filmmaker Davis Guggenheim basically managed to make a guy in a suit giving a Powerpoint presentation engaging.  So it stands to reason that his upcoming film, It Might Get Loud, which gives an intimate look into the lives of guitar gods new, old and middle aged – Jack White, Jimmy Page and U2's The Edge, respectively – will be the documentary equivalent of a 90-minute H.J.  An H.J. with a most bitchin' soundtrack.  An H.J. with at least three solos involved.  But not a solo H.J.  That's just masturbation. Read more on the project and check out some production photos of the legendary guitar heroes after the jump.  Try not to throw your panties at the computer.

‘THE FINAL DESTINATION’ GETS A TRAILER

Thursday, June 4 by

THE Final Destination Trailer – Watch more Movie Trailers The new trailer for The Final Destination – a title that either means it's THE definitive chapter in the series, or the filmmakers are huge Ohio State fans – premiered today, and we have it (above).  I've been a fan of the Final Destination films. They're good, schlocky fun and don't pretend to be anything else.  This one's in 3-D, no less, and I can't think of a more perfect type of film to make egregious use of the ever-improving 3-D technologies, until they figure out holographic porn.  That's when James Cameron quits.
