It’s also not a very good movie.

The post Review: ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

By Dan Murrell

The Ninja Turtles franchise reminds me of my old high school: it’s very close to my heart and I had a lot of fun with it when I was young, but clinging to it would be a discouraging sign that I’m still living in the past.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles seeks to update the franchise for a new generation, and it succeeds, in that it’s the same loud, dumb action film that we’ve come to expect from summer blockbusters. This film marks the first time that the Turtles have been on-screen in a live-action feature in over 20 years. While the three previous live-action films hold sentimental value to a generation of adults, the truth of the matter is that they aren’t very good. Some things never change.

I would say that the origin of the Ninja Turtles needs no explanation, but this film disagrees with me, as it spends a good chunk of its first hour retelling how our heroes came to be. I will give the movie credit for taking the story in a new direction. It’s a head-scratching new direction, but at least it’s original. It also adheres to Article 1 of the Modern Law of Reboots, which states that every character has to have known each other for their entire lives. At this point, I’m expecting Batman v Superman to open with a young Bruce Wayne cradling his dead parents’ bodies under the wreckage of baby Kal-El’s crashed spaceship.

The rest of the plot swings wildly between overly simplistic and needlessly complicated. I pine for the days when radioactive goo falling into a sewer grate passed as an acceptable superhero origin. It mainly boils down to the Turtles versus the Shredder, who may or may not be played by William Fichtner, who may or may not be a bad guy pretending to be good. The marketing has decided to be coy about it, so I’ll play along.

One plot point that does surface, for the second time this summer, is the villain’s quest for the heroes’ blood and the substances within. This is the third blockbuster movie in two years (after Star Trek Into Darkness and The Amazing Spider-Man 2) to use magic blood as a McGuffin, making it the strangest Hollywood trend since the rise of Liam Neeson as an action star. It does, however, lead to my favorite line in the movie: “I want you to drain every ounce of their blood. Even if it kills them.” I’m no molecular biologist, but I’ll go ahead and say that, yes, draining every ounce of any living being’s blood would definitely kill it.

Shockingly, the thing the film gets absolutely right is also the thing it has been most criticized for: the Turtles themselves. Despite the uproar over their new design (and they do still look slightly creepy), I bought these Ninja Turtles as a fun band of brothers out to do good. The voice work is solid, though Alan Ritchson’s Raphael sounds like a guy doing a bad Mark Wahlberg impression — much like Mark Wahlberg himself in Transformers: Age of Extinction. The biggest misstep is the casting of Tony Shalhoub as Splinter. Shalhoub is a fine actor, but his soft tones just don’t sound right coming out of a five-foot-tall anthropomorphized rat. When the action kicks in, though, the characters really shine and I felt some of that old magic kick back in.

The human side of the movie is more of a mixed bag. Megan Fox dominates the movie’s running time as April O’Neil, giving the exact performance that we’ve all come to expect from her. I think we’ve seen all the shades of Megan Fox that we’re going to see at this point. Will Arnett, as April’s cameraman Vern, is on-hand for comic relief, which succeeds mainly because Will Arnett is an inherently funny person. Abby Elliott gets a couple of nice moments as April’s roommate. William Fichtner does the best he can do with the character he’s given, though he often has to do the film’s heavy-lifting with a bunch of ridiculous exposition. And the rest of the actors, including Whoopi Goldberg and Taran Killam, are on-screen briefly in roles that could generously be described as thankless.

Despite all the fanboy hand-wringing, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is not the childhood-defiling catastrophe that so many people predicted it would be. It’s also not a very good movie. It’s too dumb, too underwritten and too uneven to call a success. It’s certainly not meant for the adults who grew up with the Turtles; even the callbacks to the original series seem forced and halfhearted. I’m also not sure it will land with kids, who might find the first hour too dark and tedious. But if the movie does succeed, it has laid the groundwork for what could be a fun series of movies with this group of Turtles. With the right story and the right balance of action and humor, I could see a sequel to this film being a lot of fun; and, much like my old high school, I might find myself dropping by for a little while to enjoy the memories.

Grade: C-

Megan Fox, who Michael Bay finally let Michael Bay film her jumping up and down on a trampoline, needs to wash her very attractive mouth out with soap. And then I should get to keep that soap.

While addressing the panel at the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles press conference, Fox had choice words for those who hold the popular opinion that the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film is a terrible idea.

“Let me tell you something about those people. How much money did Transformers 4 make? Exactly. Those people can complain – they all go to the theater. They’re gonna love it – and if they don’t love it, they can fuck off, and that’s the end of that.”

There you have it. You must like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film. Megan Fox has deemed it so. But, honestly, how could you not? It’s got Whoopi Goldberg and dialogue focus-grouped to appeal to the young people with their Dre Beat headphones and battery-powered cigarettes. (Cinema Blend)

As Master Shredder feared, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles can only keep hidden to the shadows for so long before their existence is revealed to the public. Today is that day.

Though we’re not given an official look from the studio, somehow these models of the characters have appeared online. As a nationally-appointed Party Dude, I feel that I should weigh in here. All in all, I’m leaning more cool than rude. You might argue that they’re a little burly for teenagers but compared to that giant from The Blind Side, it’s forgivable. Considering Michael Bay is involved, I’d say these designs show mature restraint.

This Shredder though. Wow. Knives everywhere. I would not let this guy sit on my furniture.

William Fichtner To Play An ‘Iconic’ Role In ‘Ninja Turtles’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/william-fichtner-to-play-an-iconic-role-in-ninja-turtles/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/william-fichtner-to-play-an-iconic-role-in-ninja-turtles/#comments Fri, 10 May 2013 20:51:18 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=254801 Usagi Yojimbo?

Deadline reports that William Fichtner has signed on for the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. No word on who he will portray beyond “a lead with iconic stature in the Turtles’ mythology.” This has lead many to posit he’ll play the film version of the Turtles’ greatest foe, Shredder. However, Shredder is meant to be Japanese and seeing a white guy do a stereotypical Japanese impression would be jarring — even in a Michael Bay movie.

So, we’re left to wait to hear whether or not Fichtner will wear knife shoulder pads or a warthog, rhinoceros, or samurai rabbit costume. Keep in mind, he does have reasonable experience in dressing ridiculously.

Not only does she get to run her fingers through Judd Apatow‘s luxurious facial hair, now Leslie Mann has experienced the pleasure of laying her hands upon Megan Fox’s perfect breasts. Lucky for the rest of us, her husband was there to film it.

That’s just one of the scenes on display in this red-band featurette for This Is 40, starring Mann and Paul Rudd as their characters from Knocked Up. The film explores the ups and downs of marriage, parenthood, and sex after your body has decided to destroy you. Enjoy them while they last, Megan Fox (and everyone who likes to look at Megan Fox).

The Oscars Trailer Suggests They’re Putting Off Fresh Material For 2013 At The Earliest http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/the-oscars-trailer-suggests-theyre-putting-off-fresh-material-for-2013-at-the-earliest/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/the-oscars-trailer-suggests-theyre-putting-off-fresh-material-for-2013-at-the-earliest/#comments Fri, 06 Jan 2012 20:22:45 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=241718 The Oscars want to demonstrate they're more the same than ever with this parody piece.

Oscar producer #1: Who do young people like?

Oscar producer #2: Definitely Josh Duhamel and Megan Fox. I saw my son watching Las Vegas once. Who do old viewers like?

Oscar producers #3-#16 (in unison): BILLY CRYSTAL AND ROBIN WILLIAMS.

Oscar producer #1 (who also happens to be Vinnie Jones‘ agent): Ok. I heard “Billy Crystal,” “Robin Williams,” and I’m going to go ahead and toss Vinnie Jones in there too. I think a few people said “Vinnie Jones.”

And that’s presumably how we got this Oscar trailer, which features no fresh faces or ideas, but rather plays to the conception that Billy Crystal is some sort of long-retired Oscar guru, instead of some aged comedian that wasn’t funny enough to host anymore until Brett Ratner got all homophobic at a screening.

Well, (bland) mission (bland) accomplished!

In this 2012 Academy Awards trailer, we get a gag that seems to have come straight out of Bruce Vilanch’s ass (gross). The goal of this trailer is certainly to generate excitement for Billy Crystal’s hosting gig at the 2012. This proves to be a fool’s errand, as it’s simply impossible to get excited about anything Billy Crystal does these days. Clearly, his selection is a backlash against Franco and Hathaway’s poorly-received turn last year, but at least people talked about the Oscars the following days.

When people try to talk about the Oscars following the telecast on Sunday February 27th, plain oatmeal will ooze out their mouths and dribble down their chins.

Which, admittedly, will be the funniest thing about the Oscars this year.

The post Megan Fox Is Less Hairy Than The Kardashians In ‘The Dictator’ Trailer appeared first on Screen Junkies.

With Ali G: Indahouse, Borat, and Bruno under his belt, Sacha Baron Cohen had to branch out to find a new character for his next film. He obviously couldn’t pull from his highly-recognizable stable, so he invented The Dictator, a harsh ruler who travels to America to make sure democracy doesn’t find its way to his land. And guess what? His performance is so enveloped that he fooled everybody. Even John C. Reilly, Megan Fox, and Barack Obama didn’t realize their legs were being pulled. They all thought he was an actual dictator!! Dude’s a chameleon, that guy.

Additionally, some are complaining about the content of this trailer, calling it unimpressive and unfunny with its Kardashian jokes and repeated gibberish gag. But I urge you to keep in mind that this is probably one for the middle states. The actual film is likely rife with edgy, inventive humor. This is just the way of tricking “those people” into the theater. If I’m wrong, I should also remind you that a woman shatters bricks with her breasts in this movie. That earns the ticket of admission price right there.

9 Actresses Hotter Than Rihanna, Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/9-actresses-hotter-than-rihanna-esquires-sexiest-woman-alive/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/9-actresses-hotter-than-rihanna-esquires-sexiest-woman-alive/#comments Tue, 11 Oct 2011 18:30:43 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=231993 But would they make good mothers? Just kidding. I don't care.

The post 9 Actresses Hotter Than Rihanna, Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Well, well, well; Esquire thinks that Rihanna is the sexiest woman alive. I’m aware that this title is largely subjective, but they are wrong. Don’t get me wrong. She is a “sexy woman alive,” but the “sexiest?” Puh-lease. In Hollywood alone there are nine women that are hotter than Rihanna.

As usual, this list’s contentions are final and non-negotiable. Anyone caught discussing or arguing with the findings here or anywhere else online will have their comments deleted and their Internet privileges suspended.

Hayden Panettiere

Standing only 5’2”, Panattiere serves as this list’s “Shetland hottie.” She might not have Rihanna’s tall grace, but she more than makes up for it by looking like a cute tiny teenager while wearing a cheerleading outfit. She would have appeared higher on this list, but she was romantically involved with boxer Vladimir Klitschko which upsets me for a number of reasons, none of which I’m going to get into in this forum.

Yaya DeCosta

This Tron: Legacy actress finished 3rd in America’s Next Top Model, which springboarded her into acting. She stole a handful of scenes in The Kids Are All Right as Mark Ruffalo’s coworker/eff buddy and appears in the upcoming Justin Timberlake sci-fi crime thriller In Time.

I can’t speak to whether or not whips and chains excite Yaya the way they do Rihanna, but I’m comfortable assuming they do until I hear otherwise.

Minka Kelly

The star of Friday Night Lights and the soon-to-be cancelled (I’m guessing) Charlie’s Angels on ABC can not only face-off against Ms. Umbrella, but emerge victorious. Realizing I know next-to-nothing about Ms. Kelly, I looked her up to find that she was last year’s “Sexiest Woman Alive” winner. How ‘bout that!

She recently broke up with Derek Jeter, so if you think your game is on par with the likes of him, by all means, call her up. I don’t have her phone number, but I’m sure she’s listed.

Hank Williams Jr. learned the hard way that he should stick to yelling about the preparedness to watch football and not veer into politics. ESPN fired him over offensive comments comparing Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler, although the comments were actually not a direct comparison, rather a joke gone awry. But, whatever, call it karma catching up to him for wearing a hat indoors all those years. Just so help me God if he’s replaced by Kid Rock.

However, he isn’t the first to lose a plum gig after sharing controversial viewpoints. Here are nine other entertainers who were fired after speaking their mind. Sadly, none of them are Kid Rock.

Gilbert Gottfried – Aflac

Gilbert Gottfried enjoyed a pretty cake stint as the voice of the Aflac duck. That ended in March of 2011 when he tweeted jokes about the Japanese tsunami disaster. He later apologized and erased the tweets, but Aflac (who does 75% of their business in Japan) weren’t laughing. He was dismissed quickly and the search for a new duck voice began.

Madonna – Pepsi

You know what Pepsi doesn’t like associated with their brand? Burning crosses. Go figure. After pressure from religious groups, Pepsi stopped airing its commercial starring Madonna and featuring her song “Like a Prayer.” However, they probably shouldn’t have likened their product to a religious experience in the first place.

Megan Fox – Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Although she proved herself quite adept at raising her ass in the air while lying across automobiles, Megan Fox found out how replaceable she is when she compared director Michael Bay to Hitler. Seems that didn’t sit too well with executive producer Steven Spielberg and Fox was not invited back for the third film in the series. It’s a shame too because that’s the only film that kinda almost made some sense.

ABC has decided that the next installment of Wife Swap should switch out the husbands and wives of celebrities to see how the likes of, uh, Gary Busey and Ted Haggard will fare.

Ted Haggard made a delightful name for himself as a hypocrite a few years back when, as president of the National Association of Evangelicals, he had an affair with a male prostitute and did a bunch of crystal meth.

YOU’RE MY BOY, TED!

Gary Busey, of course, is a clinically insane person who used to be an actor but now just scares people with his teeth.

While these are two rather inspired choices, we would like to see the producers spread their wings and put up some other celebrities that will add an unpredictable element to the reality television show. Here are five such couples that would make Celebrity Wife Swap appointment television.

5. Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox

Little did BAG know, Megan Fox has been playing her own game of Wife Swap for a while, most recently with Transformers costar Shia LaBeouf. I would like to see this couple on the swapping block if only to see the look of unmitigate glee when the other party’s husband (in my mind it’s Morgan Freeman) finds out that he’s getting Megan Fox for the experiment.

I mean, they say there’s no f*cking the other guy’s wife or husband in Wife Swap, but come on. ABC reality producers aren’t going to keep me from banging MY WIFE. Hell, the National Guard isn’t going to keep me from banging Megan Fox if she was my wife.

Ugh. Did that come across as rapey? I feel like that came across as rapey.

4. Chris “Mad Dog” Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow

These two are just annoying people. The wife would wake up to Chris Martin just staring at her, sipping some sort of herbal tea he came across in Sri Lanka.

“I wrote you a song about a rainbow!”

Meanwhile, Gwyneth would channel her GOOP darkside, filling the children’s brown paper lunch bags with vegan paella and telling the kids they don’t get to practice tai chi until after they meditate.

Cut back to Chris, who wants to call the whole thing off because he’s convinced that the new family’s dog stole his favorite scarf. To make matters worse, Gwyneth sends him a letter saying that she won’t be returning to her original family, and that he can keep Moses and Apple because those are stupid names for children and she is going to kick it with her new adopted children Cody, Madison, and Kevin.

There’s a lot of hype surrounding the latest installment in the Transformers franchise, Dark of the Moon. And with Michael Bay sending demanding letters to projectionists, and Shia LeBeouf bragging about banging Megan Fox, it’s easy to forget the true meaning of the series: Bad-ass robots turning into sweet cars and destroying each other for our amusement.

With that in mind, we’ve created the following quiz. You think you know a lot about the Transformers? Then, take the Screen Junkies Ultimate ‘Transformers’ Quiz and prove it.

Shia LaBeouf is saying things again. The Transformers star was interviewed by Details about whether or not he banged Megan Fox or not (and some movie he’s promoting or something) and if so how hard. The answer is, “Totally.”

Asked if he hooked up with Fox, LaBeouf nods affirmatively. “Look, you’re on the set for six months, with someone who’s rooting to be attracted to you, and you’re rooting to be attracted to them,” he explains. “I never understood the separation of work and life in that situation. But the time I spent with Megan was our own thing, and I think you can see the chemistry onscreen.” When I inquire about Fox’s status at the time with her longtime boyfriend, Brian Austin Green, LaBeouf replies, “I don’t know, man. I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know. . . .”—repeating the phrase exactly 12 times with various intonations, as if trying to get it just right. Finally, he says, “It was what it was.”

I’m not saying that I believe him cuz I don’t, but Shia should watch his back. He just made a powerful enemy.

In case The Dictator’s Sacha Baron Cohen‘s looks don’t do it for you in the sex appeal department, he has recruited some help via a cameo from Megan Fox. And in the unlikely event that Ms. Fox doesn’t do it for you, he called in the big guns with…John C. Reilly?

Ok, Reilly probably didn’t make the cut due to his looks, but he’s developed the comedic chops to join forces with the Borat juggernaut. Fox, on the other hand, has just begun wetting her beak in comedy with Friends with Kids and Judd Apatow‘s This Is Forty.

It’s not known whether the stars will play themselves or the extent to which they will be featured in The Dictator, but a little Megan Fox is better than no Megan Fox. Ditto for Reilly, as he will no doubt play a great befuddled foil to most anything Cohen has up his sleeve. (THR)

Doug Liman’s ‘Luna’ Poised To Make The Moon A Hollywood Hotspot http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/doug-limans-luna-poised-to-make-the-moon-a-hollywood-hotspot/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/doug-limans-luna-poised-to-make-the-moon-a-hollywood-hotspot/#comments Mon, 06 Jun 2011 21:59:11 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=214962 The moon will be a much sexier place if Doug Liman gets his way.

The post Doug Liman’s ‘Luna’ Poised To Make The Moon A Hollywood Hotspot appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Now that Doug Liman has been granted permission to travel to the moon, he’s searching for A-list actors to join him.

Paramount has fast-tracked and financed Doug Liman’s Luna, the story of some rogue scientists who build a makeshift rocket to retrieve an energy source located on the moon. The project has been in the works for years, but couldn’t find financing until now courtesy of Skydance and New Regency. Liman and Jon Hamburg wrote the original draft of the script, though it’s been reworked several times since then. The project is now poised to be Liman’s next, so the question of casting has quickly become a priority.

The shortlist of male leads includes Bradley Cooper, Andrew Garfield, Emile Hirsch and Chris Pine, all of whom have starred in blockbusters. (I’m considering Speed Racer a blockbuster for the sake of Hirsch’s feelings.) No talks are underway, but expect that list to get culled quickly. As for the fairer sex, producers are looking to Rosario Dawson, Megan Fox, Rachel McAdams, Eva Mendes, Zoe Saldana and Olivia Wilde. So they’re going with “young hot women.” Interesting approach.

Feminist Of The Year Shia LaBeouf Stripped Of His Title http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/feminist-of-the-year-shia-labeouf-stripped-of-his-title/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/feminist-of-the-year-shia-labeouf-stripped-of-his-title/#comments Fri, 03 Jun 2011 16:57:33 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=214580 Shia explains the Megan Fox/Michael Bay beef and how it's cool when chicks take their clothes off.

Though he looks good in vests, Shia LaBeouf may have just drawn the ire of feminists. The Transformers 3: Something Having To Do With The Moon star plunged his foot into his mouth while talking about Megan Fox’s firing from the sequel.

“Mike films women in a way that appeals to a 16-year-old sexuality. It’s summer. It’s Michael Bay‘s style. And I think [Megan Fox] never got comfortable with it. This is a girl who was taken from complete obscurity and placed in a sex-driven role in front of the whole world and told she was the sexiest woman in America. And she had a hard time accepting it. When Mike would ask her to do specific things, there was no time for fluffy talk. We’re on the run. And the one thing Mike lacks is tact. There’s no time for [LaBeouf assumes a gentle voice] ‘I would like you to just arch your back 70 degrees.’”

“Rosie comes with this Victoria’s Secret background, and she’s comfortable with it, so she can get down with Mike’s way of working and it makes the whole set vibe very different. Megan developed this Spice Girl strength, this woman-empowerment [stuff] that made her feel awkward about her involvement with Michael who some people think is a very lascivious filmmaker, the way he films women.”

Ouch. “Fluffy talk.” “Spice Girls strength.” My ass feels like it was slapped just by reading that. (Hero Complex)

Megan Fox has always been one of our favorite go to movie girls. Whether it’s telling off egomaniac Michael Bay or slinking around in her Armani underwear, she definitely knows how to bring the mass media market to its knees.

A word from Megan: “I really enjoy having sex, I’m young and have a lot of hormones. I’m always in the mood.”

What’s the best way to follow-up a highly praised, Oscar nominated turn in one of the year’s top dramas? If you guessed, “star in the Carrie remake that nobody wants made,” you may have guessed correctly.

Rumors say the producers of the Stephen King adaptation have put Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) at the top of their casting wish list. I’ll admit that Steinfeld is an excellent idea – she has a furious intensity and she’s young enough. The questions are: will they actually offer her the part and will she take it? I’m thinking she can do better, but if MGM and Screen Gems pull up to her door with a ton of $10 horses, who knows?

Full Length 'True Grit' Trailer Is Intense, Features Bear On A Horse

Meanwhile, you know who I’m guessing is way lower on that list? Megan Fox, who’s been lobbying for the part. Just like Fox is the stuff of my fantasies, this role will likely remain a fantasy for her. (CinemaBlend)

When you think socially outcast teenage girl, you think Megan Fox. Oh, you don’t? Yeah, I don’t either. Nobody does, god willing…

However, the rumor is that Fox is lobbying to play Carrie in MGM and Screen Gem’s remake of the Stephen King classic. I like looking at Fox as much as the next guy, especially her boobs area, but that casting would be more horrifying than anything they could put on the screen. Never mind that Fox is 25, far from high school. Fox looks like the type of girl who would tease you into an eating disorder – not a bullying victim. Also, two words: Jennifer’s Body.

Another actress who apparently wants the role? Lindsay Lohan. *Knocks Head Against Wall* (ShowBizSpy)

Mickey Rourke is a rebel. And rebels sometimes say things they don’t really mean, like that the upcoming movie Passion Play with Megan Fox isn’t any good. But he didn’t mean it! He recently apologized to Vulture for his shameful comments:

“Hey, guys. When I talked to you, I was at a party. It was loud and crowded, I was in a shitty mood and I was trying to get rid of your reporter. Mitch is one of my best friends since we were kids. I loved working with him and would do it again tomorrow. I don’t know why I said that stupid shit. I love Mitch, I love Megan. My bad.”

Now the question is if America will ever be able to forgive Rourke for saying these things about Passion Play and our National Princess Megan Fox. We’ll just have to wait and see. Maybe a  cameo appearance in The Hangover 2 would help?

Mickey Rourke is not one to toe the company line. He pretty much just says whatever comes to mind, which makes him way above the amusement curve in Hollywood. And his latest shenanigan is not a disappointment. Here’s what he had to say about his upcoming movie Passion Play:

Terrible. Another terrible movie. But, you know, in your career and all the movies you make, you’re going to make dozens of terrible ones.”

He wasn’t done trying to convince you to see Passion Play though. When asked why the movie is being released on a limited basis, he replied “[t]hat’s because it’s not very good.” Well, I’m definitely sold. Unless Rourke’s costar Megan Fox says she liked it, in which case I’ll probably lose interest. (MovieLine)

The good news is that Megan Fox is wearing barely anything, save for a pair of angel wings. The bad news is Mickey Rourke is wearing even less and crawling around on top of her.

Passion Play stars Rourke as a trumpeter who meets Megan Fox‘s dancer character who may be an actual angel. Or a girl who had a really bad dad. At any rate, Rourke wants to free Fox from Bill Murray‘s gangster pimp character, and there-in lies the conflict. The film has had a few setbacks since TIFF last year, when everyone noticed it sucks pretty bad. It will open in limited release in New York and Los Angeles before going to DVD at the end of May.

Not to lump on, but I’m not surprised this movie got made. What surprises me the most is that Bill Murray answered his hotline for this.

The post That Bastard Doug Liman Wants To Send Megan Fox To The ‘Moon’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

If director Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity) has his way, he’ll send Megan Fox, Rosario Dawson, Eva Mendes, Rachel McAdams, Olivia Wilde or Zoe Saldana to Moon. Perhaps to test the effects of zero gravity on my favorite boobs? Just leave a girl or two on Earth for us all to masturbate to, Liman.

The director is finally dusting off his sci-fi caper film, now with the clever name “untitled Moon project,” which has been lingering at Paramount after a jump from Dreamworks in 2007. After rewrites by top screenwriters like Simon Kinberg (Sherlock Holmes), and now that Liman’s All You Need Is Kill is getting killed for lack of momentum at Warner Bros, Liman is ready to round up actors for a good old fashioned space heist.

For the male lead, Limon’s met with Andrew Garfield, Emile Hirsch and Chris Pine. Of course, Chris Pine has spaceperience (space experience) as Star Trek‘s Captain Kirk, but I’m sure Spider-Man‘s been to space a bunch of times. No biggie. Jake Gyllenhaal used to be attached, but he ain’t no more.

Here’s the plot:

The story centers on a renegade group of former space employees, led by an Eastern European woman, who travel the world, stealing space equipment in an attempt to go back to the moon to acquire an energy source. The last item to steal — or in this case, kidnap — is an ex-NASA employee.

You’ve got to hand it to them – if you’re a criminal, what better place is there to escape to than the moon? It’s very unlikely the police will follow you in a squad rocket. Then again, how do you inconspicuously re-enter the earth’s atmosphere? (Hollywood Reporter)

There was a magical time six years ago, before the earth was blanketed by twitters, that Albert Brooks used to star in live action movies. Well, it wasn’t that magical, with films like Looking For Comedy In The Muslim World and The In-Laws dying in theaters, but he’s made up for those non-starters with great voice acting in Finding Nemo and The Simpsons Movie. Now Judd Apatow and his hip clique might allow Brooks to sit at the cool comedy table.

Brooks may join the cast of the Knocked Up spin-off, playing Paul Rudd‘s dad. He’s currently in negotiations for the part, which I assume includes a lot of sad puppy dog faces from the Brooks camp. Apatow has a reputation for insular casting, but today the floodgates are open. Earlier, we found out Megan Fox is also in negotiations for a role. Any celebrity who wants a job better call Apatow right now, while he’s generous. Does Gilbert Gottfried have Apatow’s number?

The film doesn’t have a title, but it does have a release date of June 1st, 2012. (FirstShowing)

Megan Fox is probably sick and tired of being only recognized for her torso and facial features. She has a sense of humor, too, as anyone who can see past her soulless, dead eyes could probably pick up on. And she’s reportedly in talks with America’s Favorite Funnyman Judd Apatow to appear in his next movie.

The project, which will probably feature 4 or 5 dudes sitting around a room making pop culture references, is a spin-off of 2007′s Knocked Up, and will be about Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann‘s characters from that film. The role that Fox would be playing is being kept a secret – I’m guessing it will either be a nuclear physicist, a lesbian double-amputee, or James Franco. (via The Hollywood Reporter)

Shhh… do you hear that? Over there in the crowd of on-lookers. It’s him. Megan Fox’s Flower Kid. He’s a little bit older and he’s upped his game, but that’s definitely him. Looks like he’s moved on from Megan and now has his sights set on Rachel McAdams. Which is absolute bullshit. I clearly saw her first.

No flower this time because c’mon, a full year and a half has passed and Flower Kid has bloomed into Flower Young Man. Flowers are the childish toys of children and hence must be put away. Though we’re sure he’ll always reserve a special place for Megan in his heart (and on the towel hidden beneath his bed), it is time to for new experiences. I fear what will happen if he is continually rebuffed. That’s how supervillians are born. Olivia Wilde would be wise to up her security. (Buzzfeed)

While I totally recognize that it’s a twisted, hypocritical process, who am I to buck the trend?

When it comes to Hollywood, women are at an extreme disadvantage. Where as men can rely almost solely on their talent (Steve Buscemi rules!), a hot body is basically a prerequisite for landing a female role. And if an actress is lucky enough to break through, there’s a whole chorus of naysayers waiting to accuse her of being nothing more than an untalented pair of tits. While I totally recognize that it’s a twisted, hypocritical process, who am I to buck the trend?

The following is a list of nine actresses who really do get by on their looks. Granted, if I could get by on my looks, I totally would, so it’s not as if I blame them. Also, in all fairness, some of these actresses are probably the victim of typecasting. Of course, being typecast as “the hot chick” isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it certainly doesn’t allow them to show of their range (if they have any). That being said, here are nine actresses who get by on their looks.

(Please note that I did not include reality stars like Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian on this list because they are too damn obvious, and they aren’t really actresses.)

Heather Graham

At the end of the day, Heather Graham hasn’t been in a lot that’s worth watching (her uncredited role as a sex shop clerk in The Oh in Ohio not withstanding). Even when she manages to pop up in a decent film, Graham always seems to be cast in the same role. In Boogie Nights she played a porn star, in Bowfinger she played a “casting couch” actress, and in The Hangover she played a stripper/whore. Have you spotted the trend, or are you too busy staring at the picture of her rack?

Exceptions: Boogie Nights, The Hangover

Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba’s IMDB page is a vast wasteland of forgettable movies, although in all fairness, The Fantastic 4 is a film you only wish you could forget. Yet despite her total lack of accomplishments, Alba is a household name. Why is that? Oh right; her perfect ass. She should get the lifetime achievement Oscar for that dumper.

Exceptions: Sin City, Machete

Rebecca Romijn

Quick, what’s your favorite Rebecca Romijn movie? The easy answer is any of the X-Men films. It’s also a lame answer, since you probably can’t even remember if she had a speaking role. Besides, she played the part of a shape shifting mutant, so half the time her character is CGI. And considering Romijn’s body is unbelievably hot, casting her as a solid-blue shape-shifter seems like a real waste. I wonder how Bryan Singer missed that. Oh, wait, never mind.

Exception: Femme Fatale, Dirty Work

Jennifer Lopez

The fact that Jennifer Lopez was in Gigli should be enough to land her on this list. Then again, no one uses that film to define Ben Afflek’s career, so I don’t want to create a double standard. Besides, I don’t need to. Since Gigli, Affleck has made Gone Baby Gone and The Town, where as Lopez has made Shall We Dance and Monster-in-Law. You do the math. Unless you’re Selena’s mom, J-Lo’s best days were on “In Living Color.”

Exception: The Cell, (Edit: Out of Sight)

Sharon Stone

When it comes to women who get by on their looks, you can’t leave out Sharon Stone. Her success in Hollywood can be traced back to a single scene from Basic Instinct in which she spread her legs and flashed her vagina to the camera. That’s something you still don’t see in mainstream movies, and this took place almost 20-years ago. Unfortunately for Stone, it’s also been about that long since she’s had a hit, but luckily for her, she ‘s still able to milk her vagina for all its worth. Wow, that sounded gross.

Exception: Casino

Megan Fox

One of Megan’s first roles was in Bad Boys II. She had an uncredited part as “Stars-and-Stripes Bikini Kid Dancing Under Waterfall.” That was in 2003, and not much has changed since then. Outside of the Transformers movies, which are widely considered horse shit, her only other notable films were Jonah Hex, where she played a whore, and Jennifer’s Body, where she played whorish vampire. That’s a lot of whoring.

Exception: Maybe Jennifer’s Body? Maybe.

Denise Richards

Denise Richards: It’s Complicated
Screen Junkies: No It’s Not

It’s pretty straight forward. If you’re young and hot, getting in a pool topless and making out with Neve Campbell will take you a long way, even if you’re untalented. Growing old and popping out kids will not.

Exception: Kambakkht Ishq (No, seriously, check this out? WTF?)

Carmen Electra and Pamela Anderson

In my opinion, these “actresses” are too obvious to put on the list. Unfortunately, they’ve both been around long enough to warrant recognition. But rather than waste two spots, I’ve combined them both into one. Besides, they are basically the same person. They both came to prominence on “Baywatch,” they both can’t act, but they both have big fake cans, so no one cares. I guess the one difference is that Anderson has Hep C. But given Carmen’s reputation, I wouldn’t rule it out.

Exceptions: None

Gabourey Sidibe

Maybe she doesn’t fit the same mold as the other ladies on this list. Regardless, her looks definitely landed her the role in Precious, and that’s pretty much all she’s done thus far, so she qualifies.

Megan Fox Has ‘Friends With Kids’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/megan-fox-has-friends-with-kids/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/megan-fox-has-friends-with-kids/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Meet your new mom. Struggling to find her place in the post-Transformers world, Megan Fox has signed on for Jon Hamm's boo's comedy Friends With Kids. The movie steals a plotline from season three of "Murphy Brown," with director Jennifer Westfeldt starring alongside Adam Scott as a pair of friends who decide to forego the muckiness that comes with relationships and just skip ahead to the baby-making. That way, they're still free to date hotter people. Hotter people like Jon Hamm and Megan Fox it turns out. "It's a very literate script and when Jen met with her, she thought Megan was spot on. When (Fox) picks the right part, she has tremendous value," said Cinetic Media's John Sloss, who is handling sales and had his fingers crossed behind his back during the interview. (THR)

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green Got Married http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/megan-fox-and-brian-austin-green-got-married/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/megan-fox-and-brian-austin-green-got-married/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green, a.k.a. David Silver, got married. Everybody settle. I said EVERYBODY. SETTLE. The couple have been dating on-and-off since 2004, and decided to tie the knot last week in Hawaii. With Fox booted off of Transformers 3 and Brian Austin Green being Brian Austin Green, they really had nothing better to do that day. My apologies go out to all the delusional guys who thought in some distant universe they had a chance with Megan. Someone get Rose Kid on suicide watch. (TMZ)
