Penis imagery: Like love, it's all around us.
Really, though, in movies, it's everywhere. And most likely, depending on the director, it's completely intentional. Yes, most of the directors you casually enjoy are actually perverted creep shows. Like Bruce Hornsby once so eloquently put it, that's just the way it is, folks. You had to learn sometime.
Don't believe us? Here are 20 not-so-subtle examples of phallic movie stills that will have you saying to yourself, "Wow, I didn't realize that Jean-Claude Van Damme with a Jheri curl could get any creepier."
'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' (2013)
In honor of Rihanna making a splashy debut in the ocean-bound blockbuster "Battleship," we're locked, loaded and counting down some of the sexiest screen sirens to handle monster weapons.
That's right, we're bringing out the big guns, in more ways than one, as these scorching hot ladies show us a thing or two about proper marksmanship.
Amber Heard, the blonde who turned up the heat in "The Rum Diary," is at it again. This time, the bombshell is in talks to become the latest femme fatale in the Robert Rodriguez action flick, "Machete Kills," the sequel to the 2010 Grindhouse hit "Machete." (Insert men cheering here.)
According to Variety, Danny Trejo will return as the titular lead, along with beauties Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriguez. Oh, and Mel Gibson may be stopping by. In other words, Trejo is one lucky ex-federale. Get More »
You can't stop Machete. Or Machete's women.
While Danny Trejo may be the only actor officially signed on for the "Machete" sequel, at least two of his co-stars from the original film are in talks to return for more Mexican mayhem, according to The Playlist. Get More »
That leathery face. That tough guy 'tude. That… refusal to text. Yes, it's time for more Machete, the character first introduced in a fake trailer in 2007's "Grindhouse" double feature by Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez.
A crazy actioner with a sly political message hidden inside, "Machete" starred Danny Trejo as a former Federale agent who ends up in Texas, embroiled in a war between immigration, corrupt officials, and Shé, a mythical leader of an underground network helping illegal immigrants. Now it's time for Machete to kill again in... "Machete Kills." Succinct!
As if Machete didn't have enough to do in the first movie, the second will show him going up against an entire army in a fight against a drug cartel leader who's paired up with a crooked, crazy, and very rich arms dealer. Get More »
Hot chicks with guns. Is there anything sexier?
Yes, of course there is. Lingerie models come to mind. Bikinis. Maybe some sort of naughty teacher scenario. But if you're one of those socially maladjusted guys [raises hand] that can only express your suppressed sexuality through the heroine avatars of your favorite violent video game, then you'll want to check out "Colombiana" (in theaters Aug. 26), starring Zoe Saldana.
And if you absolutely require more ammo-fueled feminism, we've made a list of film's 20 hottest pistol-totin' babes, just for you.
If there's anyone who can probably get a new "Heavy Metal" movie made, it's Robert Rodriguez.
The "Spy Kids" director surprised everyone at the San Diego Comic-Con with news that his new media company, Quick Draw Productions, would set sail with a new animated anthology of leering adolescent fantasies.
Wait, wasn't David Fincher supposed to do "Heavy Metal?" And with a bunch of A-list directors like James Cameron lined up to direct segments featuring buxom babes with spears and spaceships and all that? Get More »
Haven't been reading Variety every day? Then you may not have noticed, but Oscar campaign season is in full swing.
That means Hollywood insiders are being flooded with advertisements touting the achievements of this year's awards contenders, for their consideration while casting votes on Academy Award ballots.
Occasionally, the campaigns will originate from surprising or inspired places. Case in point: Last week, Paramount unveiled one for the blockbuster hit "Jackass 3D," making its case for Best Picture, Art Direction, Cinematography and more.
In the spirit of the "Jackass 3D" campaign (and also in respect for its balls), we dug up these six other surprising 2011 For Your Consideration Oscar posters you may have missed. Get More »
Someone just f**ked with the wrong Mexican in "Machete," and we are glad it's Danny Trejo. Why? Because Trejo is an unstoppable acting machine who, after spending time in San Quentin, has had a prolific career playing villains and badasses.
He's Hollywood's go-to man when your script requires a tough Mexican and, as director Robert Rodriguez said at the "Machete" premiere, he has a characteristic face that "you can rock climb on." Plus, the teaser trailer for "Machete" that accompanied the theatrical release of 2007's "Grindhouse" was the obvious choice to be made into a feature-length film, which is exactly what Rodriguez did.

We challenge you to find a Hollywood mug with more character than Danny Trejo's. Moviedom's go-to tough guy got off to a rocky start after a string of petty crimes and heroin trouble landed him in San Quentin, where he became a boxing champion.
Upon his release and after getting clean, a chance meeting on the set of 1985's "Runaway Train" launched his prolific acting career (201 credits and counting on IMDb), usually playing a tough criminal. For his first leading role as the titular antihero in Robert Rodriguez's outrageously fun "Machete," Trejo is definitely one Mexican with whom you don't want to f**k. Get More »
