Because your fantasy football team can probably power on without their all-knowing couch-side coach, take some time away from the games and catch a movie. Here's what to watch:
On the Big Screen: "Don Jon"
Between a movie about porn addiction ("Don Jon"), and a flick about race cars ("Rush"), your local theater will be transformed into a massive man cave this weekend. But while both films are equally dude-friendly, we've gotta go with The Don. Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a porn-obsessed juicehead, and he also wrote and directed the movie. No fool, Gordon-Levitt cast Scarlett Johansson as his leading lady. She plays a gum-poppin' Jersey girl with her own addiction to rom-coms. To play the part of his character's Italian dad, Gordon-Levitt tapped the ultimate boss, Tony Danza.
Scarlett Johansson grabbed a lot of headlines coming out of the Toronto Film Festival for her haunting and revealing role as a mysterious woman, preying on the men she picks up. Now "Under the Skin" has a new trailer.

Can you feel it in the air? That's the fall movie season coming your way, packed with interesting movies like "Her," the new film from Spike Jonze, who directed "Where the Wild Things Are" and "Adaptation."
"Her" tells the story of Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix), a lonely man still damaged after a serious heartbreak, who develops a relationship with the disembodied voice of his new hyper-intelligent computer operating system (Scarlett Johansson).
As the two get to know each other, Theodore finds himself falling for someone that doesn't exist in the real world, and we wouldn't expect anything else from the wonderfully twisted mind of Jonze, who has seemingly once again presented an unusual story in an undeniably beautiful way.
The first trailer for "Her" gives you a good sense of what Jonze is going for here, and the performances look uniformly great. Are you excited for fall movie season yet? Because we sure are.

Did you enjoy our livestream chats with Jennifer Lawrence yesterday? Well, there's more "Catching Fire" goodness where that came from.

It all starts at 11 a.m. PT/2 p.m. ET, right here!
The first clip from JGL's directorial debut just went online. It has Scarlett Johansson and Tony Danza— oh, you're already watching it. I don't really have anything else to say.

Luc Besson has found a new butt-kicking lady to lead his next film: Scarlett Johansson. The "Don Jon's Addiction" actress is in final negotiations to play the main character in Besson's next film, "Lucy."
The action thriller is about a woman forced to become a mule for a drug that ends up transforming her into someone with superhuman powers, The Hollywood Reporter explains. According to the site, the female character can "absorb knowledge instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind and can't feel pain and other discomforts."
The Avengers handled the 2013 MTV Movie Awards like that were an alien invasion on New York City. In other worlds: they won, big time.
Marvel's ultimate team of heroes were the biggest winners of the night, taking home three awards: Best Fight, Best Villain, and Movie of the Year. Other winners included Jennifer Lawrence and her "Silver Linings Playbook" co-star Bradley Cooper. Each won their respective acting categories and took the Best Kiss Golden Popcorn.

One of the first things that may pop into your head while watching Joseph Gordon-Levitt's performance in his directorial debut and Sundance darling "Don Jon's Addiction" is "Jersey Shore."
But when MTV News' Josh Horowitz asked about the connection to the recently concluded reality show, the "Dark Knight Rises" star pleaded ignorance.
"I had never seen Jersey Shore when I wrote it, and when I became aware of the similarities, I did watch it. Sorry, I could only get through one of them," Gordon-Levitt said. "That archetype goes back way further than 'Jersey Shore,' whether you're talking about 'Rocky' or 'Saturday Night Fever,' or Tough Tony."
The first image from Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut "Don Jon's Addiction" hit the web along with the announcement of its placement on the Sundance line-up.

Regardless of how you feel about the new movie "Hitchcock," you have to admit that Anthony Hopkins does a very impressive Alfred Hitchcock impersonation.
His performance is at the center of the great new international trailer for the movie that hit the web today. This spot puts the focus on the making of "Psycho" instead of on Hitchcock's relationship with his wife like the last trailer did. Both storylines are interesting, but at least in this take we get a better look at the shower scene, replete with Scarlett Johansson's impressive version of Janet Leigh's death scene. That alone had us on board with this film.
