FUN WITH Q&A AUDIO: LAND OF THE LOST’S ANNA FRIEL

Thursday, June 4 by

Last week, Anna Friel made Screen Junkies' list of 12 Actresses You Should Know, and after Land of the Lost hits this weekend, you should know her very well.  We had a chance to sit down with Anna at Universal's Land of the Lost press day in Hollywood, and record what she had to say.  Here's some of that chat.  We had some fun with the real audio to help give it a little more context.  Yes that's right… context! Enjoy. Anna Friel Talks LAND OF THE LOST – Watch more MOVIE TRAILERSCheck out photos of Anna After the jump!

BEST & WORST MOVIE TIME MACHINES

Thursday, June 4 by

On Friday, Land of the Lost hits theaters. Somehow, Will Ferrell, Danny McBride, and Anna Friel are hurled back in time. We here at Screen Junkies decided to take a closer look into movie’s most iconic time-traveling devices. Truly, any time machine is pretty cool, but given a huge selection of methods, we’ve pinpointed our favorites.(Click image to Cretacious Era-size it) What is your preferred time traveling device? Give your position a voice, so that we can help push the inventors into the right machine for adventures into the time-space continuum. If you don’t travel in time in style, boy, you aren’t travelin’.Oh and for those of you pissed we didn't include TARDIS… maybe because it's TOO SOON, MAN!

‘DEAD SNOW PROMO’ HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ACTUAL FILM, UNLESS NAZI ZOMBIES IS A METAPHOR FOR T & A

Wednesday, June 3 by

Ridiculous Dead Snow Promo – Watch more MOVIE TRAILERSOur friend Dustin Rowles over at Pajiba stooped below his normal level of journalistic excellence in order to bring everyone's attention to this ridiculous promo for Dead Snow, the Norwegian Nazi Zombie horror flick we posted the trailer for a few days back.  If anyone can spot just how this video pertains to the film, you win a Screen Junkies tee-shirt.  You know how confident I am that you won't find a direct correlation?  Because we don't even have Screen Junkies tee-shirts right now.  (If you'll settle for a Holy Taco one, that's a different story.)  Today's Top Links: Josh Brolin Is Cowboy Two-Face (FilmDrunk) The 10 Greatest Conan O' Brien Characters (Manofest) Hot Tiffany Joy Gallery (GorillaMask) 5 Kinds of People Who Dont Pick Up Their Dogs Shit (RegretfulMorning) Cartoon Chicks Brawling (TheBachelorGuy) Rick Santorum Dating Advice (Asylum) Recent Grads Twitter Page (Holytaco) THe Amazing Click-A-Chick (BustedCoverage) Sexy Lana Cox (Uncoached) Left 4 Dead Trailer (Unreality) The Electric Cherry (Walyou) Turkish Talk Show Brawl (NothingToxic) Sweet Tetris Orgy (Atomfilms) The Pour Elle Remake (Filmofilia)

NEW PHOTO OF TRACY MORGAN AS A BIKE-RIDING CELL PHONE FROM ‘A COUPLE OF DICKS’

Wednesday, June 3 by

Splash News posted this new photo of Tracy Morgan in Kevin Smith's buddy cop comedy A Couple of Dicks.  No reports as to the full context of the scene, but it does appear that Mr. Morgan is dressed as a cell phone, and taking flight atop a bicycle.  As this is a cop film, my guess is that he's disguised himself as the phone – a disguise that was compromised – and then he commandeered the bicycle as the foam phone suit proved too cumbersome for fleeing on foot.  Then again, this could just be a Kevin Smith's metaphorical homage to our exponentially shifting communications technologies.  I mean, the guy did direct Mallrats, after all. See the photo in its entirety – including just what Tracy is riding his bike away from - after the jump.  [via ComingSoon]

‘STARS WARS OLD REPUBLIC’ MMO GAME TRAILER

Wednesday, June 3 by

We don't post a lot of game trailers on Screen Junkies, but this one for Bio Ware's new Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO game is too pants-crapping good to pass up.  Marvel as some Sith badasses julienne some Jedi.  All you foodies/assassins out there know what I mean! We'd like to thank one of our faithful readers, the man known as "Library," who brought this to our attention, while also making noting that the game's featured R2 unit "looks so retro, it's almost steampunk."  Mr. Library, you are a junkie, and a scholar.  Thank you for finding time in between your daily hentai viewings to submit content.

PAULY SHORE: A CAREER IN THREE JOKES

Wednesday, June 3 by

Pauly Shore is America's Great Divider. Even his blink-and-you’ll-miss-it appearance in a popular 42-second online film is enough to make people hate the whole thing and remind themselves and the rest of the Internet how much they hate him. LAST DAY DREAM – Watch more Funny Videos In an unprecedented move, Screen Junkies has completed the first ever survey of Pauly Shore cinematic scholars, as well as a few undergrads majoring in "Pauly Shore Studies," which some of schools in the UC system have made available as a path of metriculation.  The results of our unprecedented survey demonstrate that there are basically only three Pauly Shore jokes, repeated in film after film.  These are those jokes.

ELISABETH SHUE IS PUMPED UP ON SET OF “PIRANHA” REMAKE

Wednesday, June 3 by

Just a friendly reminder from Screen Junkies to never piss off Elisabeth Shue. We here at the site absolutely love this thespian and her solid body of work. Even Hide and Seek. With guns like those she could have easily been cast as Thor.(Photo: TMZ) The Final Destination trailer premieres…. on Friday. Sorry if I got your hopes up.

‘TOTAL RECALL’ REMAKE IS BEING SCRIPTED

Tuesday, June 2 by

This evening, The Hollywood Reporter posted that Kurt Wimmer, writer of Street Kings, Equilibrium, Ultraviolet and the upcoming Salt , has been hired by Neal H. Moritz and Original Films to complete a draft of a Total Recall remake.  They're calling it a "contemporized adaptation."All I'm saying is that I hope they don't go the CG-route with the three-boobed lady.  At Screen Junkies, we prefer our mutated female breasts to be all-natural latex prosthetics.

IMPETO IS THE NEXT MICHAEL GIACCHINO

Tuesday, June 2 by

This afternoon, Screen Junkies received an email from the man known as "Impeto," asking us if we might help spread his musical gospel to the online film community.  We were skeptical at first.  Impeto's broken English did not do him any favors in dispelling the thought that his email was part of an elaborate scam to drain the entirety of Screen Junkies' sizeable bank account.  But Impeto's passion transcended the need for syntax (or coherence, for that matter).  We watched the clip above and… well… we sh*t our pants a bit.  We're calling it today, June 2nd, 2009: Impeto is the next great film composer.  He may also have usurped Keyboard Cat's throne. If you can fight through the Impeto-induced tears, check out today's Top Links: MacGruber movie explodes into pre-production.

Promo for FOX’s ‘Human Target’ TV Show

Tuesday, June 2 by

Above is an extended promo for Fox's upcoming hour-long drama, "Human Target," based on the Vertigo comic book of the same name.  As you can see from the clip, the show follows a badass named Christopher Chance (Mark Valley) who travels around getting paid to "be a vest."  What kind of vest, you ask?  A stylish, yet durable one that's also bulletproof.  I'd like to think it's an elegant kevlar-wool blend in an earth-toned argyle pattern, because argyle will be back this Fall… just like Fox's sunday night drama time slot. "Human Target" also stars Chi McBride ("Pushing Daisies") and Jackie Earle Haley (A Nightmare on Elm Street, Watchmen).  It is slated to premier in January, 2010.[Thanks to Bruce Simmons at ScreenRant for the video, and the info on the airdate]
