LIEV SCHREIBER IN DRAG LOOKS A LITTLE LIKE SAMANTHA MORTON

Thursday, March 26 by

The trailer for the Ang Lee-directed, Demitri Martin-starring Taking Woodstock is online.  The trailer features the likes of Emile Hirsch doing his best Tom Cruise in Born on the Fourth of July… … and also Liev Schreiber, who looks a lot like Samantha Morton when he wears women's clothing and lets his hair down. But it's not as uncanny as Shelley Duvall and Brazilian soccer star Ronaldinho…Check out the full trailer, along with a very important introduction by Demitri Martin after the jump. 

Lost Recap: Natural Born Killer

Thursday, March 26 by

In a Sayid-centric episode, we learn more of the details behind how exactly he got on that flight and why exactly he stopped working for Ben. He also befriends a young Ben Linus in 1977, and Juliette, Kate, and Sawyer experience a little bit of awkwardness over the whole love triangle. (Or love square if you count Jack). It's another pretty good Lost, right after the jump.

JESUS RETURNS TO KICK ASS WITH MILLAR AND VAUGHN

Thursday, March 26 by

After working with him on Kick-Ass, director Matthew Vaughn is looking to reteam with real-life comic book hero Mark Millar for another comic book adaptation.  So says the Hollywood Reporter.  That next project would be Millar's "American Jesus" comic book, which centers on the return of Christ to the modern world, where he squares off in the ultimate smackdown with the Antichrist, in order to save humanity. Millar's book was originally a 2006 three-issue miniseries called "Chosen." When Millar decided to continue the story as a trilogy of miniseries, the series became known as "American Jesus." The second issue is subtitled "The Resurrection" and will be coming out later this year.Here's the rest of the morning's good news:Universal and Imagine Get Lovecrafty (Empire)Jon Favreau gives tour of his house, shows off his toys (/Film)Russell Brand Gets to the Greek with Blunt in Hand (Moviehole) International Star Trek Posters have beamed up!

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!

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…
