Zack Snyder's long-awaited cinematic mind-trip "Sucker Punch" finally hits theaters today. At the center of the story are five women, all of them inmates at the fictional Lennox House for the Mentally Insane. They're also exotic dancers, and ass-kicking warriors as well. The film's most intense action unfolds in a sort of fantasy reality. The less said about it here, the better; what you need to know is that each of the five Lennox inmates get to show off their particular talents during these sequences.

To get you in the mood for today's release, we've profiled each one right here on MTV Movies Blog all week. We've already highlighted Amber (Jamie Chung), Rocket (Jena Malone), Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish) and Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens). Today we look at the last of the ladies, Babydoll, played by Emily Browning.

One of the films making its world premiere at South By Southwest next week is director Chris Eyre's "A Year in Mooring," which stars Josh Lucas as a mournful drifter who takes refuge aboard a dilapidated sailboat that he purchases near the small town of Mooring. Eyre and Lucas both took some time out recently to chat with MTV about the film and give you a little SXSW sneak preview.

Lucas' Young Mariner spends a year on his boat, fixing it up while the harbor restaurant's Waitress (Ayelet Zurer) and an Ancient Mariner (James Cromwell) observe. It is a quiet tale, and a reflective one, Eyre said, with the Young Mariner's emotional evolution over the course of the year mirroring the changing weather.

"Drive Angry 3D" hit theaters last Friday, and let's make one thing clear right now: you need to see this movie.

You'll have to be a fan of action naturally, and an undying love for star Nic Cage certainly helps as well, but director/co-writer Patrick Lussier proves in the space of two hours that 3-D is still a valuable commodity in its more gimmicky form, the one that throws severed limbs and balls of fire at your face with abandon.

"Drive Angry" isn't just about the gimmick of course, but it is used to great effect in a number of scenes. Lussier took some time out recently to chat with MTV News about designing the film's 3-D effect as a whole as well as singling out some of his favorite moments. Needless to say, there are spoilers ahead.

Things have been heating up for Timur Bekmambetov's adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" and you'll hear no complaints from us. The clever work of historical fiction seamlessly intertwines the great president's actual experiences with a vast vampire conspiracy and Honest Abe's secret life as a modern-day(-ish) Van Helsing. There's been a ton of casting news in recent weeks, including Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Anthony Mackie, Dominic Cooper and Benjamin Walker as Abe himself.

Good stuff for the movie, but what of the myth? What if Abraham Lincoln really was a hunter of those blood-sucking fiends in his spare time? Better question: would the Great Emancipator be quite as "great" to you if he stalked and staked Edward Cullen? Because we have it on good authority that Grahame-Smith's book is closer to the truth than you realize. That same source, a raving homeless man wearing a tinfoil cap, also gave us the scoop on a few other presidents and their secret lives.

After the jump, check out our completely confirmed (or, uh, not really) list of U.S. presidents and the secret jobs that history never picked up on!

FROM SPLASH PAGE: Exactly one week ago it was reported that Shane Black was being considered to direct "Iron Man 3," replacing Jon Favreau, who dropped out of the project in December to focus his efforts on Disney's "Magic Kingdom." Now things are almost official: Black is closing in on "Iron Man 3."

The "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" director is now in "final negotiations" with Marvel Studios to get behind the camera for "Iron Man 3," reports Deadline. Black is predominantly a writer, though there is no word yet on whether he'll be asked to take a pen to the sequel's script.

There was no way you could know when you clicked on this post that your mind was going to be blown. Now you know. If it's too much to handle, step away now, slowly. The braver at heart should hit play on the below video and keep reading, because you're about to have some of the magic of filmmaking revealed for you.

Armie Hammer did an outstanding job in David Fincher's "The Social Network" in dual roles as twins Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss. Josh Pence also did a great job in the role, though you'd never know it looking at the movie. Hammer and Pence were cast to play the brothers, but Pence is used as a body double for Hammer's dual performance. "Body double" is really underselling things though. What happens here is more of a "digital Frankenstein."
