Over the past six years, we’ve seen Robert Downey Jr.‘s Tony Stark go through all sorts of crap. He’s been captured and imprisoned, fallen in love, made new superpowered friends, struggled with booze, battled aliens, developed PTSD, removed his arc reactor, and through it all become a slightly better person than he was in the first Iron Man.
But some things about the character will never change. He’ll always mouth off the first chance he gets, he’ll always suffer unresolved daddy issues, he’ll always have an outsized ego, and — as a funny GIF set shows — he’ll always inspire people to attack him in a very specific way. See what we’re talking about after he jump.

It’s not unheard of for actors to take home souvenirs from their projects — whether by stealing props from the set, buying them from the production company, or receiving them as gifts. But Robert Downey Jr.‘s memento from The Avengers definitely ranks up there in terms of uniqueness.
Downey reportedly received the 30-foot-tall “A” from the Stark Tower shot at the end of the 2012 movie, after asking for it as a joke. Guess he’s never heard of the saying “Be careful what you wish for.” Hit the jump for more on the Robert Downey Jr Avengers A.

2014 has brought us no fewer than three major dystopian YA adventures (Divergent, The Giver, and The Maze Runner), with one more (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1) still on the way. That adds up to about eight hours of watching fake teenagers run around uncovering conspiracies.
So why not save yourself some time and watch Saturday Night Live‘s The Group Hopper, which essentially mashes up all four of those and then some? It even includes a weird Effie Trinket / President Snow combination, played by SNL alum Bill Hader. Watch the SNL Group Hopper “trailer” after the jump.

The Screen Junkies team isn’t always mean. When they’re genuinely impressed by a movie, they’re honest enough to say so. But if I’m being honest, it’s more fun to watch them rip a deserving target to shreds. And the Transformers: Age of Extinction Honest Trailer is truly a delight to behold.
The video tears into all the obnoxious, nonsensical, and downright stupid aspects of the Michael Bay-directed extravaganza, and even delves into some eye-rolling errors you might have missed. Hit the jump to watch the Transformers Age of Extinction Honest Trailer.

Hollywood loves a good sick-kid story, and as the box office figures for this summer’s The Fault in Our Stars showed, audiences adore them too. But cancer is so passe at this point. So Saturday Night Live took a more topical spin on the formula with The Fault in Our Stars 2: The Ebola in Our Everything.
Watch SNL’s The Fault in Our Stars ebola-themed parody after the jump. Read More »
I love Michael Bay. I unironicly think he is a great artist. And from everything I’ve read, heard and even personally seen, I think he’s a hilarious person. He’s almost like an exagerated cartoon character version of what you might expect. Sometimes I think he plays into the persona, that his behavior can be an act.
For instance, when I was on the set of Transformers: Age of Extinction, Bay filmed a huge explosive action sequence as uninvited onlookers watched from nearby buildings and parking garages. They applauded after the take and Bay addressed the crowd with his megaphone: “You guys think you’re going to wait up there and be in my movie? You’re gonna get digitally erased!” Was he joking?
Actor Rob Corddry has spent way more time with the filmmaker than I have at various junkets and set visits, and decided to compile a list of funny and crazy Michael Bay quotes during the filmmaking of Pain & Gain. Read that list and more after the jump.

What I’ve always loved about Kevin Smith is that he’s a fan. First and foremost, Smith loves movies and that’s why he always infuses his films with so much of that. At first is was totally blatant, like the references in Clerks or Mallrats. Now it’s a bit more subtle, such as borrowing storytelling techniques from Quentin Tarantino in Tusk. Either way, if you want to talk about movies, there are few people better.
In a new interview, Smith is asked about his new movie Moose Jaws. It’s a film he plans on making sometime in the next year which would be like Jaws, but with a moose. That conversation got him talking about how much he loves Steven Spielberg‘s Jaws and that rabbit hole lead him to pitch a Jaws sequel or reboot that Steven Spielberg himself would direct. It’s totally crazy and has more in common with Sharknado than Jaws but, if Spielberg was at the helm, who wouldn’t watch it? Read the crazy Kevin Smith Jaws pitch below. Read More »

Judging by all the things he gets blamed for, Satan seems like a pretty busy guy. Even so, he apparently finds time to keep up with current movie releases. Like Left Behind, the new Nic Cage apocalypse thriller from faith-based Stoney Lake Entertainment.
The Prince of Darkness himself is quoted in the latest ad for the film. Because why get blurbed by the usual Rotten Tomatoes crowd when you can go really big? See the Left Behind Satan quote after the jump.
