X-Men: First Class was sloppy at worst and dopey at best. However, any hate for the mostly well-received film was focused at January Jones and her portrayal of Emma Frost. And for good reason. Beyond standing around in her underwear, Jones wasn’t given very much to do in the movie. The lines she did deliver gave off the vibe that wasn’t given direction or she didn’t want to be there.

When asked about Bryan Singer‘s upcoming sequel, X-Men: Days Of Future Past, the actress responded that she hasn’t heard anything yet. “I don’t know that I’m in it, I don’t think Emma’s in this one.  Well they haven’t told me if I am (laughs).”

Although she had essentially zero notice when she was cast last time around. ” I wouldn’t put it past them though, I got the script for the first one on the airplane on the way there.”

“At that point, the doors were all locked and the plane was in the air and we couldn’t turn back,” she probably wanted to add. (Collider)

It’s hard to believe that 2011 is almost over. It’s been a crazy year full of ups and downs, tears and laughter, and bizarre WTF moments. Sometimes we forget that celebrities are people too. And just like you or I, they have their own season’s greetings to send to friends, loved ones, and colleagues. Being the industry juggernaut that we are, Screen Junkies finds itself on several mailing lists of the rich and famous. We present to you just a few of the celebrity holiday cards that have been pouring in lately.

Oh my God, I can’t believe how good X-Men: First Class is. It’s so good, I held my pee for at least 90 minutes because I didn’t want to miss anything. Also, I shouldn’t drink coffee in movies.

This is the best prequel ever, because it actually tells a story. It’s not just setup, although there’s plenty of that too. The characters are actually different at this stage of the story, not just younger imitations. Xavier (James McAvoy) uses his telepathy to pick up babes, and has a cocky swagger that’s in no way reminiscent of Patrick Stewart. Mystique as a child is sweet and heartwarming, and once she grows up to be Jennifer Lawrence she’s a lovely lady, not yet the cold, hard edged Rebecca Romijn version.

Kevin Bacon Shows His Skills In New ‘X-Men: First Class’ Trailer

The superpowers get to be delightful at this stage because they haven’t totally become burdens yet. The kids get to train and experience the joy of discovery, like the best parts of Spider-Man and Iron Man. It’s just plain awesome, Azazel teleporting humans to the sky and dropping them, Magneto turning a knife into a boomerang or turning barb wire into snares. It’s beautiful and tragic too. Spoiler alert, but not all the mutants grow up to be X-Men, especially not the ones who don’t have well known comic book names.

The film really emphasizes the practical uses of mutant powers. Xavier even comments that his telepathy is being blocked, like, “Oh well, it’s not working right now so I can’t help you today. Maybe I need to call tech support.” It’s momentous, triumphant, powerful and still debates all that important philosophy. It totally invalidates the prologue of X-Men: The Last Stand but something tells me no one will mind that.

I love the way Matthew Vaughn shoots. He creates Hitchcockian suspense, only instead on knowing there’s a bomb under the desk, we know that Magneto is going to bend some metal. But will it be the gun or the coin or all the metal in the room? Vaughn’s camera captures little details that make the scene feel real, like Magneto’s reflection in a gold bar.

More obvious details make the world feel even more real than the Bryan Singer films. Yeah, it’s a period piece, but using the period details grounds the film where X2 will still feel generically modern long after 2003. So they play “Palisades Park” in a go-go club and the fashion is disco. Just showing Mystique brushing her teeth gives her a real world context.

First Class is this year’s great comic book movie, up there with Spider-Man 1 and The Dark Knight, maybe somewhere in between them. (Sorry Green Lantern, it won’t be you this summer.) It’s the summer movie I’ve been waiting for. Actually, it makes me realize I might have been settling for others before this.

For months, January Jones and Fox have been promising that X-Men: First Class would be the skimpiest-clothed X-Men film to date. Approximately 648 trailers and 1,296 set pics have been released online, none of which showing January Jones in her panties. That drought (assuming you’ve never opened a men’s magazine) is over today, friends. We’ve made it out the other side, and the fruits of our patience are, meh, kinda so-so. But still, boobies. (THR)

Professor Charles Xavier brought together a team of mutants to promote peace and fight prejudices from humans. However, just cause the X-Men are a team, doesn’t mean they have to look at each other. I mean, come on. Some of them look really, really weird.

In Fox’s new poster for X-Men: First Class, we see Beast, Mystique, and a bunch of non-blue muties all walking in different directions. Or standing around. Yeah, it’s a little awkward, but nowhere near the train wreck that was the last set of posters, which featured some ridiculous floating-head-on-crotch action. And I do like the tag-line, though I would have considered switching Mystique and Emma Frost. The White Queen has two things I want to see more up close, if you know what I mean, and what I mean are her long boots and cape. I also mean her boobs.

The X-Men assemble in theaters June 3rd, starring Michael Fassbender, James McAvoyJanuary Jones, Kevin Bacon and a soon-to-be-Hunger-Games-ing Jennifer Lawrence. (EW)

If you’re one of the many who are eagerly anticipating X-Men: First Class, the 60s throwback X-Men movie that features Professor X and Magneto as babies young men, you probably watched the Russian trailer that was released a while back, even though it’s not in English. Now, your perseverance in the face of a world that hates and fears you has paid off, since the international trailer has been released – it’s just like the Russian one, but in English.

So, enjoy this trailer, with all its dramatic scowling and January Jones. You’ve earned it, bub.

To celebrate the ’60s-style mod look of X-Men: First Class, Total Film whipped up four vintage covers that feature the film’s hottest characters. We have James McAvoy‘s Professor X  in a Life magazine -esque profile, Michael Fassbender looking suave for an Esquire send-up, January Jones releasing them, and a group shot of McAvoy, Fassbender, Jones, and Jennifer Lawrence in her creepy Mystique make up.

The art direction of these covers is so convincing that I’m not entirely convinced these actors didn’t actually exist in the 1960′s. I’m going to need to see a picture of January Jones wearing nothing more than today’s newspaper immediately. (Total Film)

The prequel to the X-Men series  X-Men: First Class appears to be trying to distinguish itself visually from the other movies in the series, partly as a service to its swinging 60s setting. And this new photo would appear to bear that out, with its neon blue glow and 60s costumes – it almost looks like a shot from a particularly flashy James Bond movie, albeit one that stars Kevin Bacon and January Jones.

The photo originally comes from Empire magazine, which will also have additional quotes from the actors about the movie once it goes to print. Until that glorious day, you must feast your eyes on the image in all of its shiny blueness. Enjoy:

Review: Unknown http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/review-unknown/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/review-unknown/#comments Thu, 17 Feb 2011 20:31:23 +0000 Fred Topel http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=27863 Unknown is not just a mediocre action movie.

The post Review: Unknown appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>

Unknown is not just a mediocre action movie. It’s actually bad. The thinking must have been: Liam Neeson was awesome in Taken. Let’s put him in another one. What have we got?

We meet Dr. Martin Harris (Liam Neeson) and his wife Liz (January Jones) vaguely enough as a traveling couple on an airplane and checking into a hotel. Not so close that we assume too much, but definitely established as a couple. Then Martin has to go back to the airport because he left a bag there. Isn’t that the plot of Police Academy V? I mean, without the suitcase switch, but come on!

Martin’s cab has an accident, he wakes up in the hospital and when he goes back to the hotel, Liz doesn’t recognize him and there’s another Dr. Harris (Aidan Quinn). Was everything we saw before a false memory? No, there are dudes trying to kill him so he has to beat them up.

The story only needs to be enough to set up the chase, but it is aggressively stupid. The details that make Martin suspicious are blatantly contrived. He tries to check back into the Eisenhower suite because he wasn’t there when the clerk told Liz it was booked. Martin tries to prove he’s the real Dr. Harris while the imposter recites the exact same backstory simultaneously. It’s like grown men playing that childish game of repeating everything the other one says.

It travels on such a cliché arc, it’s like an episode of “South Park” spoofing a movie like Unknown. When he sees the new Dr. Harris’s photo at the university website, the music practically booms: “Da dun duuuuuuuh!” Also, the U.S. Embassy is closed for Thanksgiving so he can’t clear anything up. Oh, and when the first knock at the door is a friend, the second knock is obviously the bad guys so check the peep hole before you assume your friend came back.

The danger is so banal. Martin escapes from a hospital half drugged by bad guys. It’s more of a stumble than a chase. There’s a crowbar fight, so if men whacking each other with metal rods sounds exciting, this is the movie for you. A car chase through Berlin is no more than a few collisions strung together. In one scene, a villain hides in a van just waiting for a stunt to happen. What’s he hanging around for? He could just get away!

Perhaps the biggest problem is that the film is so focused on how an organization could perpetrate this deception. The how is not interesting. What’s interesting is what it does to someone when their memory is questioned and their life is replaced. Unknown doesn’t explore that (it doesn’t count when Martin gets mad. He doesn’t reflect.) Unknown only uses memory as the plot needs, so Martin can remember a combination at the right time or something, never to build any real suspense.

X-Men: First Class has been rumored to be having a troubled production for a while now, including a rumor that the film was being shot by 2nd unit directors so the real director Matthew Vaughn could take the time to edit. This is mostly due to the rush by 20th Century Fox to get the movie to production, presumably because they’re eager to begin work on the prequel X-Men Babies.

Anyway, these rumors appear to have a little bit of truth to them, if star January Jones is to believed in these recent comments made to the press in some country called “Canada“:

“Poor (director) Matthew Vaughn is going to have to edit it in three days,” Jones joked. “That’s been a blast. We’ve all had so much fun making that movie. I think it was unrealistic for them to think they were going to make such a huge movie in whatever we had — two months or something. So of course we went over (schedule). I think I have a couple more days to shoot…  We’re almost done. The fact we’ve had to push the wrap date but they haven’t moved the release date is really interesting to me. I guess they must know what they’re doing. I have a lot of faith in Matthew as a director and an editor; I think his movies are great. And I think they’ve been cutting as we’ve been going. We should be fine.”

Whoa, way to be discreet, Jones. She better learn to zip it before she spoils the next season of “Mad Men” for me. (via The Playlist)

Fox kept us waiting with another Facebook debacle, but our patience has paid off. Finally, a good look at the swinging 60′s of X-Men: First Class. Not to mention the little outfits January Jones was convinced to slip into.

X-Men: First Class takes us back to the early days of the X-Men where you should pretty much forget everything you saw in the other movies. Beast and Mystique are kids, Wolverine is nowhere in sight, and your girlfriend wants to do it with Professor X now. Is that the Brave New World that Charles Xavier dreams about?

30 Actresses Who Should Consider Topless Scenes http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/30-actresses-who-should-consider-topless-scenes/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/30-actresses-who-should-consider-topless-scenes/#comments Thu, 20 Jan 2011 06:17:00 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=18946 It's hard to believe, but even in a society that's as sick and depraved as our own, there are still some actresses who refuse to go topless. That's insane!

The post 30 Actresses Who Should Consider Topless Scenes appeared first on Screen Junkies.

It’s hard to believe, but even in a society that’s as sick and depraved as our own, there are still some actresses who refuse to go topless. That’s insane! Using my neighbor’s Wifi connection, I can see countless women getting completely naked and doing awful things to each other, and I get to watch that for free! But just because some “actresses” majored in theater, they’re too good to get topless in movies I’m paying for? That’s insulting not only to me, but to the millions of girls around the world who sell their bodies for money on a daily basis.

Well, the only way to rectify this situation is to identify the worst offenders and shame them into doing the right thing. With that in mind, I’ve complied this list of 30 actresses we’d love to see topless. Hopefully, they’ll stop putting on airs and give the viewing public what they want.

Update: A few people are complaining about Isla Fisher, Lindsay Lohan, Mila Kunis, etc. According to Mr. Skin, they all used body doubles in their films. So please double check before you leave a negative comment.

30. Jenna Fischer

We aren’t really dying to see Pam from”The Office” show us her cans. But since actress Jenna Fischer has stated she’d never do a nude scene, it makes us want to see them that much more.

29. Jennifer Garner

Jennifer Garner has yet to go topless, which is a shame, cause she’s rapidly approaching the point of no return.

28. Jessica Simpson

We’d love to see “actress” Jessica Simpson get topless. The only problem is, we’d rather see it back in 2005. Warm up the time machine.

27. Sandra Bullock

Sandra Bullock is often referred to as “America’s Sweetheart.” Last time I checked, if someone is your “sweetheart,” you get to look at their tits. Let’s see ‘em. Demolition Man didn’t count.

26. Jennifer Love Hewitt

Perhaps Jennifer Love Hewitt has passed her prime. But throw in the nostalgia factor, and she’s still worth a look.

25. Cameron Diaz

I’ve heard rumors that Cameron Diaz isn’t hot in person (what a coincidence, neither am I). Luckily, I’ll settle for seeing her topless in HD.

24. Lindsay Lohan

(Update: Machete uses a body double) They say an addict can’t begin to recover until they’ve hit rock bottom. Well, nothing says rock bottom like selling your body for money. That’s why we want Lindsay to go topless: because we care.

23. Leighton Meester

What a retarded name. But to quote Dave Attel, “those tittes ain’t retarded.” Sorry you can’t see her breasts in this pic, but I guess I’m more of an ass man.

22. Blake Lively

Pout all you want, Blake. At this point, a topless scene is the only thing that can make up for Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

21. Katherine Heigl

Katherine Heigl has a really bad reputation these days, mainly because she likes to trash talk people she’s worked with. But I think a good old-fashioned topless scene would clear the air.

Yesterday we saw an X-Men: First Class preview that makes Toad seem cool by comparison. Earlier today we got another cleavageriffic shot of January Jones as Emma Frost that’s sure to get fanboys harder than her diamond form. Tonight we get a big, fancy looking “X.”

Man, that’s some X. Maybe it’s the biggest X in eXistence? When I first saw it, I assumed I was on X, that’s how big it is. Then I made jokes about Xzibit, xXx and eXit Through The Gift Shop, after which everyone on the internet simultaneously nominated me for a Bloggy Award.

Apparently, Team X-Men is still working on the trailer, since “they’ve still got a ton of visual effects shots left to slug into the thing,” according to Harry Knowles. So, until then, you’ll just have to be satisfied with this metallic plaque poster, bub. (AICN via JoBlo)

Two days ago, we got pictures. Today we get good pictures via Playlist. There should be no question now that these X-Men: First Class photos are official and aren’t the product of a photoshopping fan boy. These pictures give us what the earlier ones didn’t: A chance to see our X-Men looking all mod and 60′s-cool.

First off, we have Kevin Bacon’s Sebastian Shaw looking like Chris Walken in “The Continental,” and January Jones‘ Emma Frost looking like a woman with a delicious rack. Notice the wet bar in the back left. “Omit no detail,” say the producers!

Then we have a picture that some would construe as a “metaphor.” We’ve got young Professor X (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) engaged in a battle of wits over a chess board. While many might say that this 60′s throwback is a case of notalgia fever run amok, the fact remains that these stills demonstrate a warmth we haven’t seen in this franchise before. So even if it takes some ascots and a wood-and-leather study, it’s well worth it.

Finally, we’ve got the money shot. The group looking like the cast of a British detective series. Reaction to the earlier “official” photo was hostile, and with good reason. If the producers are going to jump along the timeline of the story to give us a fresh look at the characters, a generic, shadowy picture that graces the poster of every superhero movie is probably not called for. These stills convey a very different atmosphere that will probably be the source of more than a few laughs in the film knowing Matthew Vaughn. Ascots for everyone!!!

We’ve got new photos for both the new Marc Web Spider-Man and X-Men: First Class. So DC comics can officially eat it today. The Spider-Man shot isn’t an official still. As a matter of fact, it’s hard to tell what it really is. It’s blurry, it’s got a Spider-Man-shaped person running through traffic in downtown LA (filmed to be NYC, of course), and that’s pretty much it. I guess this proves that they are actually filming the movie. Of course, no one doubted that they were filming, but still, it’s nice to be sure. No word on whether the pictured Spidey is Andrew Garfield or a stuntman. One thing’s for certain. It’s not Tobey Maguire. (/Film)

In seemingly more “official” news, we’ve got a somewhat obscured photo of the cast of X-Men: First Class in their costumes. It would appear that Professor X is standing. He could be in a very tall, backless wheelchair, but that’s pretty unlikely. Beyond that, it’s hard to know what to make of their outfits, except for January Jones as Emma Frost. She is looking pretty sharp. (Playlist)

NOTE: MSN has pulled the pic for unspecified reasons, and some rumors are circulating that it’s fake, while others are saying it’s simply “unauthorized.” We will leave this post up until we get some definitive proof, if only because James McAvoy and January Jones are so damn attractive.

When January Jones was cast as Emma Frost in Matthew Vaughn‘s X-Men: First Class, we all looked at drawings of Frost then at Jones. Then back at Frost. Then back at Jones. Then we got all giddy.

Our first look at her in costume was a bit of a disappointment. Instead of looking like the Maxim spread we anticipated, she looked more like a drum mallet. Now she opens up about the revealing costumes, which restores our hope:

“The costumes are insane. It’s a lot of very body-conscious stuff. If you look at the comic book, she’s barely dressed. She’s got quite the bod, which is very intimidating. I’m thinking, ‘I’m supposed to be doing crunches on the plane.  How am I gonna get buff in one day? I’m a petite person, so I didn’t want to go into a strict workout and eating regime. I would have disappeared entirely, and she’s very busty, very voluptuous, so I didn’t want to get rid of any of my curves.”

But sadly, they didn’t want her to get in better shape for the part in favor of making her look like women in the 1960′s actually looked. Which. Is. Bullsh*t. You know what else they didn’t have in the 1960′s? Guys who turned into ice. (Collider)

In the new poster for Unknown, Liam Neeson tries to cover up horrible acne scars and/or the dark side of his soul. Depends on how deep you want to get with it. Seriously though, was the actual Liam Neeson not available and they built a wax version then slid a cardboard box panel over half of a spotlight to shoot him? Oh you think they used something more advanced than that, like Photoshop. But why would a professional graphic artist use his skills in Photoshop to make Liam Neeson look like a deformed tunnel dweller? Our photoshops of Michael Bay placed into anything and everything look more realistic. (/Film)

Warner Bros. has dropped the new trailer for Unknown. Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (House of Wax), it stars Liam Neeson as a guy who wakes from a coma and discovers that someone has taken is identity and not even his hot wife (January Jones) believes him. He teams up with a hot cab driver (Diane Kruger), who originally put him in the coma by crashing into a lake, to help him make sense of the whole mess. Neeson kicks some ass in it Taken-style, so despite the whole clichéd "why does no one recognize me!" premise, it could be worth checking out. Unknown wanders into theaters February 18, 2011.

Today we have pics of January Jones as Emma Frost enjoying cantaloupe on the set of Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class. I don't remember the fruit being a huge part of Frost's character in the comics, but maybe Vaughn has taken some artistic liberities. Wookie was also quick to point out that Jones is dressed like Dolph Lundgren's girlfriend in Rocky 4. If there was ever a movie to look to for inspirational costume ideas, it's Rocky 4. My question is, when do we see January in this? Start shooting those scenes IMMEDIATELY, Vaughn.

The fourth season has slyly reinvented the show and ably guided it out of the bummerific territory it normally explored. Rolling Stone stopped by the set and snapped off a few pretty cool candids of Jon Hamm, Christina Hendricks, January Jones, and crew. My only complaint, needs more Blankenship.

You were all instructed to get down to your local wishing wells with an sh*t ton of pennies, and wish this thing into reality. So, what the hell? Today it's reported that talks have fallen through, and "Mad Men" actress January Jones will be filling the role. Nothing against Jones, but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! We were so close to combining this: with this: Now we'll never know what that looks like because you guys didn't wish hard enough. Somebody owes me pennies. (Deadline)

Mad Men” is back on the air as of last Sunday, and that means we’re getting January in August.  We’re talking about January Jones, who plays Betty Draper, wife of Jon Hamm‘s Don Draper.  And while we can’t think of a better reason to embrac monogamy than Betty, Hamm can’t keep the salami in his pants. Oh, assorted meat jokes… unlike actual assorted meats, you’ll never get old.

A word from January: I was in lingerie on a trampoline and I had to jump into the air for eight hours. My legs were starting to buckle.
