It's weird.

It seems that Southwest Airlines has stepped in it yet again. After kicking Kevin Smith off a flight for being too fat, and booting Billie Joe Armstrong, singer of Green Day, for waring pants that were two baggy, Southwest is once again the talk of the Twittersphere (and possibly other spheres as well) for kicking a woman off her plane for sharing a lesbian kiss with her girlfriend.

That’s the bad news for Southwest. The REALLY bad news is that the girl they deplaned was Leisha Hailey, one of the stars of Showtime’s The L Word, which makes her one of the most famous lesbians in the world (sort of by default). Not a good move for the official airline of GLAAD. Seriously. Southwest is (was?) the official airline of GLAAD.

For shame, SWA. You don’t boot people based on their sexual orientation. The flight attendant said the kissing was gratuitous and that passengers complained, but there has been no confirmation of that assertion as of yet. When Screen Junkies gets its own airline, and it’s just a matter of finalizing some paperwork before we do, we vow to never kick off any couples in love, gay, straight, bi, or Eskimo.

To give you an idea of who we’d allow to kiss on our flight, here’s a rundown of some lesbian characters that we’d allow to at least make out on our routes. We used hot lesbians as the example here because, duh.

10. Kelly Van Ryan – Wild Things

We would let her make out with Neve Campbell on any of our flights, or she could make out with some other hot girl that we don’t know about yet. After all, she’s got a bit of a temper on her, so we wouldn’t want to antagonize her by giving her whatever the female equivalent of blue balls is.

9. and 8. Nina and Lily – Black Swan

Let them pronounce their love from the jetway, says I! While their lesbian encounter may have been the result of that sweet, sweet MDMA coursing through their bloodstream, ScreenJunkies Air would never be so presumptuous as to define another’s love. Is a drunken bisexual hookup not, in fact, love? My girlfriend told me it is.

Further, if the whole affair was just a figment of a troubled girl’s imagination, that’s OK too. We definitely don’t judge people for mental illness and would never ask them to deplane over a sickness. Unless it was contagious.

7. and 6. Jules and Nic – The Kids Are All Right

Are you kidding? Despite the former’s indiscretion with an approachably hunky Mark Ruffalo, these two are in love. We would never let the fact that they happen to be women cloud our appreciation of their ability to raise children and find happiness. I guess that differentiates us from Southwest Airlines, the most profitable airline in the country.

But if profits mean denying a couple’s love, put us in the red.

That's a mistake the upcoming lesbian werewolf film Jack & Diane does not intend to make. Though I am afraid it may alienate John Mellencamp fans.  Australian pop star Kylie Minogue has now joined the project to play a "heavily tattooed lesbian." She'll be working with Juno Temple and Riley Keough, who play hot teens who must deal with the hardships of transforming into a werewolf.  Surprisingly Mischa Barton is not involved with this project in any way.

Sandra Bullock and Scarlett Johansson: Lame Lesbian Action http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/sandra-bullock-and-scarlett-johansson-lame-lesbian-action/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/sandra-bullock-and-scarlett-johansson-lame-lesbian-action/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 OMG! Did you see that Sandra Bullock and Scarlett Johansson made out at the MTV Movie Awards!?! I was all like WTF? Then I was LMAO! And then I farted. If it was 1994, I guess this would have been shocking. But it's 2010, and thanks in no small part to MTV, our society has been desensitized to the point where Sandra would need to pull out a strap-on for anyone to bat an eye. In a world where hardcore lesbian pornography is only a "redtube" away, is this sort of "stunt" really necessary? Tune in next week for another minute with Andy Rooney. Watch Sandra Bullock and Scarlett Johansson lock lips (not the good kind) after the jump (at the 4 minute mark).

Most of the presentations at this year’s Comic-Con were staged within the friendly confines of the San Diego Convention Center, and all the parties were held at various hotels downtown.  But Twentieth Century Fox picked San Diego’s Manchester Grand Hyatt as the venue for an evening with JENNIFER’S BODY, which included a screening, Q&A with cast and crew, and afterparty at the hotel’s Kin Lounge.  Screen Junkies was lucky enough to get the invite for all of the above, and we have the scoop – including more foxy pics of Fox – after the jump…

The screening started at 8pm sharp on Thursday night, and I had just finished frantically uploading the James Cameron AVATAR interview in the hotel’s lobby, which explains in part why I was a little slow on the trigger to put this piece up on the site.  We were told by Fox PR that we’d be seeing the first 15 minutes of JENNIFER’S BODY, followed by a Q&A with star Megan Fox, writer Diablo Cody (JUNO), director Karyn Kusama (AEON FLUX, GIRLFIGHT) and producer Jason Reitman (JUNO, THANK YOU FOR SMOKING). 

The segment we saw was promising.  Without giving too much away that the trailer hasn’t already, Needy (Amanda Seyfried) and her friend Jennifer (Megan Fox) head out to a local bar in their podunk town, where Jennifer is eyed as a target by the satan-worshipping rock band led by (Adam Brody).  During the band’s set, the bar burns down in a freak electrical fire and everyone except Needy, Jennifer and the band perish.  Jennifer, still in shock, is led into the band’s van and Needy is left behind.  That night, Needy is home alone and gets an unexpected visitor: Jennifer, covered in blood, who then promptly devours a whole chicken, vomits black ooze that seems to have a life of its own on the kitchen floor, and then tosses Needy around a bit.  It’s all very brutal, and yet weirdly sexy… and for a horror flick still featured Cody’s patented pop culture witticisms inherent in her "Diablogue."

My first impressions were that JENNIFER’S BODY definitely felt like a throwback to fun ’80s horror flicks like LOST BOYS – movies that don’t take themselves too seriously – and the filmmakers who came out for the Q&A confirmed that that’s what they were going for. 

Here are a few tidbits from the sitdown:

MEGAN FOX ON JENNIFER’S BODY

What I loved about the movie is that it’s so unapologetic as to how inappropriate it is, and that was my favorite part about the script and about the character and it’s fun to be able to say the sh*t that she says and get away with it and have people find it charming.

DIABLO CODY ON CREATING A NEW HORROR MYTHOLOGY…

For me, I was simultaneously trying to pay tribute to some of the conventions of horror and simultaneously turn them on their ear.  So it was truly kind of a postmodern thriller. on one hand, i grew up watching these amazing 80s genre movies, like LOST BOYS, and so I wanted to honor that, and at the same time, I had never really seen this particular sub-genre done with girls, and I tried to do a little bit of both.

ON CHICKS IN HORROR MOVIES…

It’s been pointed out that the last survivor standing is usually a woman.  SO I think that horror has always had a kind of feminist bent to it, and at the same time, it’s kind of delightfully exploitative.  My favorite thing about doing a horror movie is that it’s actually a little bit of both.

Karyn Kusama: I think also a lot of horror is about female-ness, whether it’s CARRIE or ROSEMARY’S BABY.  I think a lot of it is about the fear of the female or celbration about it in a weird way.  And this took the fear and the idea that it’s the female that ultimately survives and marry them in a way.

Diablo Cody: The funny thing is when I set out to write this, I wanted to make something very dark, very brooding.  A traditional slasher movie.  And I realized about a third of the way through, I realized I was incapable of doing that.  The humor kept kind of sneaking in.  I have a macabre sense of humor. So a lot of the horrifying stuff in the movie was funny to me.

I’ve always said that horror movies and comedies are kind of similar in the sense that you can witness the audience having a physical release, whether it’s laughing or screaming.  So I think they’re similar in that way.

MEGAN FOX ON ON-SCREEN VOMITING…

That day, I was actually throwing up chocolate syrup.  We did a few takes whee I would do the scream and then throw up Hershey’s Syrup or something.  Scratch the Hershey’s, cause I don’t want to endorse it or anything. And then SFX did a rig that clamps onto my ear, and you revisit it in the pool scene, which you haven’t seen yet.  But it basically clamps down onto my ear and then I bite down and it projectiles – it’s a tube and it projects whatever that material was.  I’m not sure.  It was pretty intense; I mean, I think it was worse for Amanda [Seyfried] because I think she was the one that got puked on.

JASON REITMAN ON HIS FIRST FORAY INTO HORROR…

JR: I found THANK YOU FOR SMOKING to be terrifying, personally. I love horror movies and I probably see them more than any other genre at the movie theater.  I saw SEE NO EVIL and I still haven’t seen THE 400 BLOWS.  I would love to.  I hope I’m as capable as Karyn was doing it.  It’s an intimidating genre, because there are people who do it very well.

MEGAN FOX ON ACTING IN THIS VERSUS TRANSFORMERS

Obviously there’s not distractions… like there’s no giant robots to distract you from the performance so if it’s terrible you’re gonna know that it’s really f**kin’ terrible.  That of course is intimidating but the character was so much fun for me. I wasn’t really sure what I was doing, and I just had fun with it, and I also just had fun playing with my image, or how people might perceive "Megan Fox" to be.  And I was just sort of flying freely.

MEGAN FOX ON THE SEXINESS LEVEL OF JENNIFER’S BODY…

This movie is so sexy.  You better put on your f**in’ sexy shoes for this movie. 

[crowd laughs]

There’s a relationship between my character and Amanda’s character and I guess depending on who you are and how you grew up, there’s a little bit of a lesbian relationship that happens.  There’s a girl-on-girl kiss.  It’s an homage to that.  But we also poke fun at that in horror movies.  But also, before every kill, there is a seduction that occurs, so these boys have to be seduced into getting close enough to this dead girl for her to devour them.  But I think I’m pretty sexy in it.

[crowd laughs again, some women in crowd scowl]

JASON REITMAN ON HORROR MOVIES:

I remember cracking open my father’s laserdisc of NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and that being one of the coolest moments from my childhood.  And I can’t imagine having that experience with any other genre.  I can’t imagine dangerously opening a copy of a broad comedy in the middle of the night hoping I wouldn’t get caught.  And the idea that there’ll be a kid out there secretly opening a Blu-Ray of JENNIFER’S BODY is pretty exciting to all of us.

KK: This is totally gonna be that movie where the eleven-year old boy – and girl – do that. The first thing I thought after reading this script was, "Man, if I was seventeen.  If I was just a younger person right now, this is the movie I would see ten times in the theater. It’s just a pull… the movie speaks to me… it’s emotional, not intellectual.

MF: I don’t ever watch scary movies.  I have a very intense fear of the dark.  The last horror movie I saw was TOOTH FAIRY I think, and I slept with my mom for a month afterward.  So for me to play something I’d normally be frightened by was really intriguing for me. 

THE FILMMAKERS ON THEIR FAVORITE HORROR FLICKS…

KK: I’m a NEAR DARK junki.

DC: My all times favorites are ROSEMARY’S BABY and DON’T LOOK BACK.

JR: I’m a SHINING GUY.  My father told me ALIEN as a campfire story.  Only it’s continued.  The alien made it back down to earth.  And then I started watching ALIEN for real, and I was watching it and found I knew where it was going.  And I was young enough to have a moment where I thought… "Oh my god… they ripped my father off!"

[crowd laughs because that was an adorable story]


 

And with that, the Q&A came to an end.  As interested as I was in JENNIFER’S BODY, I couldn’t muster up the energy to hang out at the afterparty, but here are some pics from it.  Sucks.  I could have chatted up Mintz-Plasse about how Matthew Vaughn‘s little indie KICK-ASS was the sleeper hit of Comic-Con 2009
