CRANK PRANK

Monday, April 20 by

Someone here at Screenjunkies got kind of jacked up over seeing Crank: High Voltage this past weekend.  So much so, that they took it upon themselves to replace our intern’s…

THE BEEGEES GET A MUCH NEEDED HAND JOB

Monday, April 20 by

In this exclusive ScreenJunkies mashup, John Travolta's Tony Manero, the king of the disco, meets Gerry Phillips, the king of hand music.  My favorite part might be Travolta eating a hot dog and dance-walking to what essentially is melodic farting.  Watch and laugh after the jump.  Warning, this may leave a bad taste in the mouth of all Bee Gees and Saturday Night Fever purists. You had it coming.

‘WHITEOUT’ TRAILER

Friday, April 17 by

PHILLIPS’ NEW ‘CINEMA 21:9′ HDTV. FINALLY. SOMEONE GETS ASPECT RATIO.

Friday, April 17 by

Are you one of those people who always wondered why they didn't make HDTVs a 2.35:1 aspect ratio?  You go to the movie theater and see a grand, sweeping movie shot in the widest widescreen possible, and then rent the movie later at home – the Blu-Ray, no less, on your brand new LCD screen – and you get black bars on the top and bottom.         Sucks, right?  It's like you're paying extra to see a Lars Von Trier flick in IMAX.  Well, fret no longer.  Phillips has unleashed the sleek "Cinema 21:9" HDTV which will display those 2.35:1 widescreen movies in their intended aspect ration – and with no unsightly bars at the top and bottom.  The image actually takes up the entire screen.  Who'da thunk it?   Phillips is also releasing special web shorts to coincide with the TV's launch.  You can check out the amazing "Carousel," directed by Adam Berg and starring a bunch of seamless visual effects recreating a single moment in time during a bank robbery, but stretched out like some fly-through bullet time sequence you probably put your friends through every time you school them at Madden.  See for yourself after the jump.

NEW ‘HARRY POTTER & THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE’ TRAILER

Friday, April 17 by

Today, the official "Trailer 4a" for Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince was released, and, dare I say, it looks pretty good and dark.  Then again, the Potter trailers always seem to make me all sweaty and excited, only for me to walk out of the theater feeling mildly clammy in the underarms.  And I perspire a lot.  But I'll give this one a fair shake, and the 3-D in the last one kicked all sorts of ass, so why not? Watch the trailer after the jump.

FELICITY JONES JOINS GERVAIS & MERCHANT’S ‘CEMETERY JUNCTION’

Friday, April 17 by

Ricky Gervais & Stephen Merchant have cast their leading lady for their next film, the '70s-era insurance company dramedy Cemetery Junction (formerly known as The Men at The Pru).  Brit starlet Felicity Jones has been awarded the role.  She's mosty done work in the UK, including the BBC's "The Diary of Ann Frank," in which she played Margot Frank, an episode of "Dr Who," and the very British sounding Northanger Abbey TV movie.  If your girlfriend catches you ogling pictures of Felicity, just inform her that she'll be playing Miranda in Julie Taymor's adaptation of The Tempest.  Then, when she naturally asks, "Oh, can we see that?" You can coolly answer, "It's probably not a good idea if you don't like me looking at Felicity.  Miranda is a significant role in the Bard's classic."  You're welcome.Check out the photos of Felicity after the jump:

The Office Recap: Rivals

Friday, April 17 by

Charles Miner delegates more responsbility to Dwight, causing his loyalties with Michael to be called into question, and Andy decides to help Jim out because he's obviously not doing well with Pam at all. (Clearly.) It's another fantastic Office this week, and it's right after the jump.
