'Super 8': The new trailer has been tweeted. And it's Spielberg-licious.

The new, full-length trailer for J.J. Abrams's "Super 8" has been disseminated via Twitter. As an homage to Steven Spielberg sci-fi, it's so Spielberg-esque, I think it just turned on my heartlight. Well, either its Spielbergness turned on my heartlight or Kyle Chandler did. Either way, check out the clip....

Trailer: Cameron Diaz in 'Bad Teacher'

Based on the new trailer for the summer comedy "Bad Teacher," Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake could be pretty funny together onscreen. That said, I still think the most entertaining part of this clip involves Jason Segel going off on a Michael Jordan vs. LeBron James rant. Just me? Or is Diaz doing a twist on the Jack-Black-in-"School-of-Rock" routine equally hilarious?...

Five things Julianne Moore won't do in her role as Sarah Palin

Julianne Moore, otherwise known as Sarah Palin. (PRNewsFoto/P&G/Bounty) As reported this week, Julianne Moore will play the role of Sarah Palin in HBO's upcoming adaptation of the book "Game Change," about the 2008 presidential election. It's a provocative bit of casting, first and foremost because Moore is a fine actress, and it will be interesting to see how she brings Palin to life in a way that diverges from the comedic,Tina Fey template. But it's also intriguing because, in their careers at least, Moore and Palin seem like wildly different people. To prove that point, here's a list of five things that Moore has done on film or television in the past that, presumably, she won't be doing in the role of Palin....

Video: Sam Rockwell, busting moves

It's lunchtime. You need something to do while sitting in your cubicle, quietly peeling away at that string cheese. Why not watch a montage of Sam Rockwell's infectiously awesome dance moves? Yes, you're definitely welcome. Via Vulture...

'Cars 2': Lightning McQueen meets James Bond

The trailer for "Cars 2" raises an important question: is this a Pixar movie, or a globe-trotting James Bond spy adventure? Or, perhaps, both? I can't decide. But maybe you can. Have a look since the odds are good that many of us (especially the ones with kids) will be spending at least one matinee-afternoon with Mater this summer....

Charlie Sheen responds to 'Two and a Half Men' firing by waving machete; Gwyneth Paltrow pursuing record deal

Charlie Sheen reacts to being fired from "Two and a Half Men" by waving machete from the top of a tall building and invoking the words of Martin Luther King, Jr. Well, that and his lawyer threatens to sue Warner Bros. and "Two and Half Men" co-creator Chuck Lorre; Lorre, meanwhile, has hired his own attorney in preparation for the legal battle. (TMZ; The Hollywood Reporter) In case anyone still cares, here's a portion of that Lindsay Lohan surveillance video footage we mentioned yesterday. Please contain your excitement. Gwyneth Paltrow, who returns to "Glee" tonight, is in talks to get her own record deal. We all saw this coming, didn't we? (The Guardian) More morning mix -- including news of a renowned filmmaker allegedly hit with a tax lien and a "True Blood" star who is expecting twins -- after the jump....
