Nazis! In! Spaaaaaaaace! Check out the totally bananas 'Iron Sky' teaser


Iron Sky is a film with a fascinating backstory. As reported by the Hollywood Reporter, it’s one of the first feature films with a budget that mostly derives from “cloud financing,” donations made over the internet. However, the film also has an equally fascinating frontstory: Nazis on the Moon! As seen in a just-released teaser, Iron Sky follows a society of national-socialists who fled Germany for the dark side of the moon in 1945, and their plans to launch a full-scale attack (or “meteroblitzkrieg”) on Earth. The teaser is reminiscent tone-wise of the Grindhouse faux-trailer Werewolf Women of the S.S., complete with a lead role for crazy-eyed B-movie all-star Udo Kier. Needless to say, the bad taste is off the charts here, but if Iron Sky is as over-the-top as it clearly intends to be, it could be 2012’s Hobo With a Shotgun.

Donald Trump reveals his hair-care regimen: Lather, rinse, do not repeat

Looks like Mean Girls‘ Gretchen Weiners isn’t the only one whose hair is full of secrets.

During a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Donald Trump finally explained how he gets his fine golden mane to look like that. While I could just as easily write jokes about Trump’s laughably non-Presidential coif, the comedy really writes itself here. Just read the excerpt from RS below in which you can absolutely hear Trump saying these things in his very Trump-like way. Or better yet, imagine Conan O’Brien saying it as Donald Trump. But, most importantly, never under any circumstances, should you follow this hair regimen, as it involves an hour of drying and watching Morning Joe. Also, it would make you look like Donald Trump:  READ FULL STORY

Julie's creepy TA from 'Friday Night Lights' stars in Lowe's commercial. Have you ever been unable to disassociate actors from their characters?

I can say with the utmost certainty that never before had I been upset by a hardware superstore commercial. Shopping for paint samples is annoying, certainly. But upsetting? Rarely.

That is, until I saw a commercial for Lowe’s that involved actor Gil McKinney. Sure, in the ad he’s just a dude looking for some affordable lawn furniture with his significant other, but all I could see was the creeper T.A. from Friday Night Lights who has been corrupting our dear Julie Taylor (Aimee Teegarden, pictured here sucking face with said culprit). As soon as I recognized the actor, it was hard not to think, “How can you be buying furniture at a time like this? Don’t you know what you’re putting the Taylor family through? Have you no shame, sir?!” I’m sure Mr. McKinney is a swell fellow in real life, and it’s certainly a testament to his skills as an actor (any FNL fan can attest they got bad vibes from him immediately), but I instantly saw Derek the Creeper T.A. when I saw him. (Sadly, the commercial has not yet made its way onto YouTube yet, so you’ll just have to wait patiently to see it on the old-fashioned television. Fight the urge to rewind!)

I’ve actually had this happen before, though. As I noted in the trailer for the upcoming Mandy Moore flick Love, Wedding, Marriage, as soon as I spotted actor Michael Weston, it was jarring. READ FULL STORY

'This Must Be the Place' vs. 'The Skin I Live In': Which Cannes entry gives you the heebie-jeebies?

Which is scarier: A masked, bald woman wielding a knife, or Sean Penn? Strangely, I’d have to say the latter… but only in the clip embedded below from Paolo Sorrentino’s Cannes entry This Must Be the Place. In the film, Penn channels The Cure’s Robert Smith in looks and Truman Capote in speech (or so it sounds, based on his static delivery) as an ex-musician searching — with Frances McDormand — for a Nazi who shamed his dearly departed father. He’s also just as good at applying makeup as a teenage me. Also embedded after the jump: Pedro Almodóvar’s The Skin I Live In, a horror film about a plastic surgeon (Antonio Banderas) attempting to create a new skin for his wife. Two creepy clips, one film festival: Cannes. Looks like the south of France is about to get weird, PopWatchers. READ FULL STORY

'Kids React' to Osama bin Laden's death: Watch

The weekly ‘Kids React’ web series posted a special episode Sunday with children ages 6 to 14 reacting to President Obama delivering the news that Osama bin Laden had been killed. Questions begin with simply identifying bin Laden (8-year-old Emma knows he took down the Twin Towers and that a lot of people died that day, “like 42 people died”). Then the kids are asked if there was anything we could have done but killed him (10-year-old twins Megan and Shannon, pictured, have differing opinions with Megan thinking you don’t just walk up to someone and shoot, and Shannon reasoning, “They didn’t — they tried handling it with words and it didn’t work”). Things get truly fascinating when the kids explain why it was — or wasn’t — right to celebrate in the streets (I’m with 10-year-old William, who says, “I was happy that our nation felt pride. That’s good. But I’m not cheering ’cause this is still a man’s life. It’s a bad man’s life, but it’s still a life”) and why we should — or shouldn’t — release a photo of bin Laden’s body to prove he’s dead (“Oh, you better soon,” says 6-year-old Morgan). The kids finish by detailing what they think will happen now with other terrorists and what they would do if they were president to stop terrorism. Nine-year-old Elle would buy a yellow canoe — I think she missed the second part of the question; Morgan would give a comforting speech. “God bless everyone that we are not dead. God bless. God bless. God bless. But everyone that died, might I say, it is sad,” she says, pouting. William, who likens the war on terror to a game of Whac-A-Mole — another bad guy will always pop up — isn’t sure: “This is really, really a hard subject, ’cause it’s like politics, CNN, terrorists. I don’t know. I don’t know.”

Will Ferrell's President Bush returns with an important announcement

Over at Funny or Die, Will Ferrell has trotted out his iconic George W. Bush impression to provide important commentary on a recent matter of national security. Speaking directly from his remote headquarters at the Sizzler steakhouse on Canyon Ranch road right outside of his gate-guarded community, Bush describes in exquisite detail how his crack team took down the president’s longtime nemesis: A gopher named “Ardilla,” which has been tearing up the Bush back yard for years. The gopher was disposed of according to gopher ritual: “He was wrapped in a bathroom mat and thrown in my neighbor’s yard.” One imagines that a horde of drunken college students are currently dancing on Ardilla’s grave, chanting “U-S-A! U-S-A!” and joyfully proclaiming that no other forest creature will ever terrorize the Bush family’s backyard ever again. Watch the video after the jump… READ FULL STORY

Donald Trump tells Fox News he's unhappy about Correspondents' Dinner roast, calls Seth Meyers 'a stutterer'

Donald Trump was the target of several jokes at this weekend’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner. The tycoon has a sense of humor, of course, but when he called in to Fox News yesterday morning, he admitted that he felt like President Obama’s jabs — which compared Birther movementarians to moon landing skeptics and portrayed the Trump White House as a neon-lit pool party — might have been overkill. “I understood what I was getting into,” said the rumored candidate for president, but he noted that he “didn’t realize I would be the sole focus.” It’s important that you realize, though, that Trump wasn’t feeling bad for himself while the audience cackled at him. He was feeling bad for You. “I was thinking to myself as they were doing this that the American people are really suffering, and we’re all having a good time. I think it’s inappropriate in certain respects,” said the host of The Celebrity Apprentice, a show about plastic surgery casualties and steroid memoirists learning how to sell lemonade.

Jon Stewart on yesterday's Obama birther 'non-shell.' Plus, the best explanation of Donald Trump's hair I've ever seen

There are so many nuggets of wisdom in Jon Stewart’s breakdown of what he calls the “non-shell” that was dropped yesterday when President Obama called a press conference to reiterate — more than two years after he took office — that he was, in fact, born in America. Among them? The introduction of  the word “non-shell” to my dictionary (and quite possibly a new PopWatch category).

He also created a visual aid for people — like yours truly — who never quite understood what was going on atop Donald Trump’s head. (I knew it was bad news, but never dwelled too much on the matter.) Now, if only Stewart had a diagram for us to explain what was going on inside Trump’s head. READ FULL STORY

'Game of Thrones' argument turns violent; Florida man arrested for throwing cousin into window

Remember how, when Lost was on, you used to get into a profound debate with your friends about whether Jack or Locke or Sawyer was cooler? Well, you were all wrong, because Desmond is the coolest. But you know what I mean: It’s fun arguing about our favorite TV series, especially epic shows with sprawling casts and exciting action and themes. However, when arguing about TV, it’s best to remember the golden rule: Violence is never the answer. Michael Podniestrzanski forgot that fundamental rule of engagement on Sunday: According to The Smoking Gun, the Florida native was watching the second episode of Game of Thrones with his cousin, Joshua Ross.
