It’s a really slow news day, so enjoy these photos of Scarlett Johansson looking like a member of the Jersey Shore for her role as an alien in Under The Skin.

Zack Snyder is one of the most infuriating directors working in Hollywood today. His visual style is lavish and dynamic; every frame is meticulously crafted with style and panache. But, beneath the hoods of his glimmering hot rods, sit rusty, sputtering engines that fail to propel the vehicle past the finish line. Such is the case with his latest misstep, Sucker Punch – a movie so colossally inept at basic storytelling, it makes Clash of the Titans look like The King’s Speech.
Ok, before I go any further, yes, I realize Ma and Pa Kent are not Superman’s biological parents, and therefore Martha Kent isn’t a true Baby Mama. It makes for a funnier headline this way, so work with me, ok? At any rate, veteran actress and uber-MILF Diane Lane has been cast as Superman’s adoptive Mother, Martha Kent in the upcoming Zack Snyder-directed Superman: The Man of Steel. She’ll be joining Henry Cavill as Superman, and if rumors hold true, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent. Lane is now officially the hottest Ma Kent of all-time, supplanting Annette O’ Toole who filled out tight sweaters nicely on TV’s Smallville.
Part occult thriller, part speed-demon road movie, Drive Angry is a neo-exploitation throwback that actually feels like it could’ve once been seen on the lower half of a 42nd Street double bill. Eschewing the faux-grindhouse stylistic tics (missing reels, scratched frames) and rehashed 70s-movie plotting similar “homages” too-often indulge, it instead serves up a heaping helping of the things any B-movie fan wants: badass antiheroes, naked babes, bloody violence, wild sex, sexy cars, Satanic cults, and ridiculous plotting all done without apology.
