NEW ENTERPRISE MODELS AT OFFICIAL STAR TREK MOVIE SITE

Tuesday, April 14 by

In celebration of JJ Abrams' Star Trek film, which opens in a few weeks, the official movie site is posting images of Quantum Mechanix's scale models of the USS Enterprise that filmmakers, artists and celebrities have customized.  The above mod was created by L.A. artist Jesús Diaz.  The actual models are on display in select theaters around the country, but you can see almost all of them at the official site, including ones designed by Jim Lee, Robert Rodriguez, H5 and more. We did one, too, but it didn't make the list because someone decided it was a good idea to leave their kids unsupervised at the ScreenJunkies' offices:

‘ANTICHRIST’ TRAILER IS BUTT OF MOVIE BLOG JOKES TODAY

Tuesday, April 14 by

Hey kids!  It's the new Lars von Trier movie!  *restrained cheers from handful of movie geeks wearing ironic Van Halen-inspired Von Trier shirts*Yes, indie darling Lars von Trier, whose Dogme 95 filmmaking style has a set of rules prohibiting filming cheese sandwiches with studio lighting or something like that, is coming out with what looks decidedly like a non-Dogme film in Antichrist.  I say this because there's a CG shot of a dog growling, and not because Dogme prohibits butt shots.  But – and this is a big but – there's a lot of butt in this trailer.  And it all comes at the rear of the trailer (oh gosh, I just can't stop, can I?). Actually, the movie looks pretty terrifying in a Rosemary's Baby, slow burn sort of way, which seems right up Von Trier's alley (not a butt joke) since he is the king of slow movies. Want to see Willem Dafoe's satanic plumber's crack?  Then look no further than the jump!

15 Best ‘Family Guy’ Celebrity Cameos

Tuesday, April 14 by

The Family Guy loves to give a good skewering, especially when the butt of the joke is a celebrity.  The paparazzi prey doesn’t necessarily deserve it because they’re pompous or ignorant – although those types are certainly shown no leniency – but simply because all limelight hogs can afford to be taken down a peg or two.  We here at Screen Junkies salute Family Guy for tackling superstar satire in their trademark no-holds-barred, consequences-be-damned manner by featuring 15 celebrity cameos (real or impersonated) that cut right to the core.  They’ll make you laugh and think, but most importantly they’ll make you say to yourself, “Yeah, that is an over-the-top yet surprisingly accurate depiction of that particular person.”

Monday, April 13 by

While Tony's sneaking around the base, he sees a truck pull in. He gets a call from Bauer telling him that the President has called off the air strikes for some reason, and that he's got to get out of there. Then Almeida takes a closer look at the truck, and sees that it's is a gas tanker holding would-be fuel for surface-to-air missiles. Bauer says he'll get in contact with the President.Madame President admits that Hodges is blackmailing her with the missiles. Bauer explains how Almeida can get inside the bunker and blow up the fuel tanks with C4 he's got in his utility bag. At first she is ardently reluctant. "How long did they give you to live?" she asks Bauer. "They don't know."–"Then there's not much I can do to stop you." She hangs up.Bauer takes that as a indirect order to go ahead with the plan to have Almeida go in, and so he transfers the order to Tony, who has the utmost confidence in himself that he can complete the mission and blow up the missiles and bio-weapons. He holds up one Hodges' goons, and heads down into the fuel tanks.

CHRIS PINE AS “MURDOCK” IN A-TEAM BIG SCREEN A-TEAM REBOOT?

Monday, April 13 by

According to MTV Movies Blog, Star Trek's Chris Pine has spoken with A-Team movie director Joe Carnahan about the possibility of playing "Howling Mad" Murdock.  "Murdock is my man,” said Pine to MTV.  If it happens, Pine and Carnahan would be reuniting for the first time since Smokin' Aces back in 2006 – Pine's first big role.  He played a Neo Nazi assassin.  Who would be your Dream A-Team to back up Pine'sMurdock?  Here's who we think could be more than serviceable members of this crack commando unit.  If you have a problem.  If no one else can help and you can find them, maybe you can cast these guys:
