Patrick Wilson takes a break from battling creepy ghosts to battle suburban malaise… IN SPACE. Space Station 76 is a vision of the future imagined by the past. The retro future sci-fi comedy also launches Liv Tyler, Matt Bomer, Jerry O’Connell, one of those little Nintendo robots, and Freddy Got Fingered star Marisa Coughlan into space during the age of key parties. Think of it like The Ice Storm but with robotic hands.

We here at Screen Junkies will undoubtedly be dragged along to screenings of Abduction this weekend by the teen girls we “volunteer” with. Luckily, Lily Collins co-stars opposite Taylor Lautner, so the guys will have something to look at as well. Lily began her acting career with roles in 90210, The Blind Side, and Priest, but is also known as the youngest daughter of “rock star” Phil Collins.

That comes as a bit of a surprise given the lack of family resemblance, but acting is actually a popular career path for the hot daughters of rock royalty. This fact is reinforced by the beautiful ladies below.

Liv Tyler

Pops: Steven Tyler of Aerosmith

Let’s get the most famous hot rock star daughter out of the way. Liv Tyler spent the first nine years of her life under the belief that she was the daughter of “Hello It’s Me” singer Todd Rundgren. However when she noticed her resemblance to one of Steven Tyler’s hot daughters, the cat was let out of the bag. It wasn’t long before she got to work being really hot professionally in Aerosmith videos, which led to roles in films like Armageddon, the LoTR Trilogy, Jersey Girl, and One Night At McCool’s.

Cosma Shiva Hagen

Moms: Nina Hagen of The Nina Hagen Band

Cosma Shiva received her odd name when her punk rock mom thought she saw a UFO while pregnant. Hagen has shown off her hotness in several German films, but hasn’t expanded her career very much in America. Unless you count her appearance in Speed Racer, which you probably don’t.

Chelsea Tallarico

Pops: Steven Tyler of Aerosmith

You might argue that Chelsea Tallarico doesn’t count as an actress given that her only IMDb credit is that of Bystander #1 on an episode of Lizzie McGuire. But let me ask you this; did you actually see her performance in the “Xtreme Xmas” episode of Lizzie McGuire? It was some damn fine bystanding. You really believed she was standing there. Also, she’s gorgeous. Let’s thank God everyday for Steven Tyler’s recessive genes.

‘The Ledge’ Trailer With Liv Tyler Gets Pushed Off A Something http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/the-ledge-trailer-with-liv-tyler-gets-pushed-off-a-something/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/the-ledge-trailer-with-liv-tyler-gets-pushed-off-a-something/#comments Tue, 03 May 2011 02:02:46 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=Video&p=210129 Liv Tyler, Charlie Hunnam, Patrick Wilson and Terrence Howard star in a movie that was the backdrop for a Screen Junkies controversy. (Whoa.)

Awhile back, Screen Junkies interviewed The Ledge star Charlie Hunnam at Sundance. It ended up not being pretty, but we’re ready to let bigones be bigones, and won’t let the bad memories associated with the interview color our presentation of the trailer. I promise to be completely fair and unbiased.

The Ledge, a poopy movie for dumb-dumbs, was written and directed by Matthew Chapman. The movie, about a bunch of jerks who get caught in a stupid-looking love triangle, stars Liv Tyler, Charlie Hunnam, Patrick Wilson and Terrence Howard. From the stinky trailer, I gather that Hunnam has to jump off the ledge, or his lover Tyler will be killed by her religious zealot husband Wilson. Oh, and when I said the trailer was stinky, I meant it smells like a fart.

IFC Films will push the movie off a ledge for a limited theatrical release June 29th. Also: two thumbs down.

You won’t have to join NBC Comedy Night’s secret fight club anymore, if you want to see Rainn Wilson beat someone over the head with a wrench. And it’s all thanks to this trailer for James Gunn‘s vigilante comedy Super.

I always wondered how The Punisher would have reacted if his wife up and left him, rather than being viciously murdered. Would he still feel the urge to take back the streets? Probably not. And the world would have to go without one sweet-ass skull design. But, that’s exactly what happens in Super.

Rainn Wilson’s wife leaves him for Kevin Bacon‘s smooth-talking drug dealer and a war on crime is born. And, honestly, it’s about time that someone was brave enough to step forward and tell crime to shut up.

Sundance Review: The Ledge http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/sundance-review-the-ledge/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/sundance-review-the-ledge/#comments Sat, 22 Jan 2011 01:09:53 +0000 Fred Topel http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=21528 The Ledge is a big misdirect. You think it’s going to be a standoff movie where a cop has to talk a jumper down. That’s really just the hook.

The Ledge is a big misdirect. You think it’s going to be a standoff movie where a cop has to talk a jumper down. That’s really just the hook. It’s really a theological debate between an atheist and a homophobic zealot. I guess you can’t really lead with that.

Gavin (Charlie Hunnam) steps out onto the ledge of a roof. Hollis (Terrence Howard) is called to talk him down. Hollis just found out that he can’t donate sperm because he’s infertile. He has kids. So he’s got that going on. Gavin tells the story of what led him to the ledge.

Shana (Liv Tyler), Gavin’s new hotel employee also happens to be his neighbor. Gavin and his gay roommate Chris (Chris Gorham) invite the neighbors for dinner, and Shana’s husband Joe (Patrick Wilson) thinks they’re both gay and prays for God to help them correct their abominable choice. Now Gavin is not gay, but he still knows that’s wrong.

It’s interesting that the Sundance audience laughed at Joe’s comments. In a progressive audience, that sounds like humor because obviously we know his suggestions of homosexuality correcting programs are evil. I think most audiences will find it horrific. At least I hope they do.

Gavin engages in theological debates with Joe while trying to save Shana from such an oppressive man. I think it’s bold to make a movie so heavily centered on a hot button issue. I just don’t think it really explores it fully.

Joe takes the typical unwavering approach that the only salvation is being born again. Gavin’s all about evidence. I don’t think it’s either God exists or he doesn’t. Beliefs can enrich people’s lives and make them want to love. Joe’s beliefs make him hate. Where does that come from?

Narratively, I have a problem with the whole movie being a flashback. I know if you didn’t start on the ledge, it wouldn’t get juicy for about a half hour, but that’s the screenwriter’s problem to solve (same guy, writer/director Matthew Chapman.) This overdone crutch of the teaser opening informs way too much of the plot. Now nothing could happen that would prohibit Gavin from ending up on the ledge. It doesn’t take too much deduction to figure out which of the five characters is behind the plot and what Gavin’s choice will have to be.

It’s interesting that there are at least two films at Sundance with homophobic villains. That’s what Red State is about too, in a slasher movie format. I guess society has gotten to the point where artists want to tackle this head on. Everyone who protested Basic Instinct and Silence of the Lambs in the early ‘90s, here’s a movie where a raging heterosexual is the villain.
