"G.I. Joe: Retaliation" is shaping up to be one of the can't-miss movie events of 2012. Not only did it kick ass and take (a few) names during the MTV Movie Brawl, it also unleashed one of the greatest Super Bowl commercials of the entire game (which you can watch below), thanks to its star-studded cast led by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Bruce Willis.
Those two real American heroes get the spotlight in a terrific new Hero Complex interview that also debuts a brand new photo from "Retaliation." See that photo above you, then click on for highlights from the interview.
It's been a big week in nerd news. "Watchmen" prequels are officially on the way in the form of "Before Watchmen," seven interconnected comic book miniseries that chronicle Rorschach and pals before their fateful encounter in the Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons graphic novel. Speaking of chronicles, Josh Trank's found-footage superhero flick "Chronicle" is out in theaters this week, and it's awesome. But it's got stiff competition in the form of Dan Radcliffe's big-screen comeback and a whale of a drama. Get more on that, plus some talk about Spidey's canceled "Avengers" cameo, in this week's Talk Nerdy!

"The Woman in Black" haunts theaters this weekend, promising to deliver a brand new side of Daniel Radcliffe that even his "Equus" fans have yet to see.
Of course, we've seen Radcliffe battle the supernatural before. Eight times before, in fact. Indeed, while we're excited to see how his turn as Arthur Kipps fares against a haunted house, we can't help ourselves from wondering how much easier a time he'd have getting rid of that pesky woman with his reliable Hogwarts education in tow.
With that in mind, keep on reading for five ways Harry Potter himself would deal with "The Woman in Black."
The shark has two heads. So help us all, the shark has two heads!!
That's pretty much the only thing I've been able to say in the twenty-four hours or so that passed since watching MTV Movies' exclusive trailer for "2-Headed Shark Attack," the latest thriller from The Asylum that lands on DVD shelves today (January 31). I encourage anyone and everyone to watch the "Shark Attack" trailer right here, right now, if only so that I'm not the only one with shark-filled madness swimming about in my brain(s).
A glimpse inside the mind of "Charles Swan" will yield some interesting results. You'll hear a lot about tiger blood, undoubtedly. And if you run into Bill Murray, you might walk away pregnant.
Aubrey Plaza, recently at Sundance for her time-travel comedy "Safety Not Guaranteed," spoke with MTV News this week about starring opposite Murray and Charlie Sheen in "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III," an experience she clearly enjoyed... perhaps a little bit too much.
"I did actually," Plaza deadpanned when asked if she got an authentic "Bill Murray experience" on the "Charles Swan" set. "We had an experience that in nine months, the world will be a part of."
Demi Moore's exit from "Lovelace" has given a lot of attention to the currently filming biopic of the "Deep Throat" star. But there are more than one Linda Lovelace films in development at the moment. There's also the Malin Akerman starring "Inferno" to consider -- though much like the fiery title, Akerman believes it's time to light a "fire under" the project, or walk away entirely.
"Either we have to do it now, or we have to let it go," she told MTV News at the Sundance Film Festival. "That's one of the potentials that might be happening within the next month or two. We'll see."
Akerman thinks that both "Inferno" and "Lovelace" can coexist, however, due to tremendous differences between the movies.
Elvis versus aliens. If that doesn't sound awesome to you, then you and I are not living on the same planet.
Though "Bubba Ho-Tep" director Don Coscarelli and actor Paul Giamatti have long been planning on putting rock icon Elvis Presley up against a pack of blood-thirsty vampires in "Bubba Nosferatu," it now appears that their scheme has gotten bigger -- franchise-sized big, in fact, including a detour to New Mexico.
"Oh, we have all kinds of plans for a 'Bubba' franchise," Giamatti told MTV News at the Sundance Film Festival, appearing alongside Coscarelli to support their new movie "John Dies at the End." "We've been thinking 'Bubba Roswell,' is what we've been thinking."
Director Spike Lee's "Red Hook Summer" isn't all it appears to be. The religiously-charged drama about an Atlanta boy sent to spend the summer with his Brooklyn-based estranged grandfather, a preacher, has a dark secret at its core, one that Lee intends to "keep on lock."
"Everything is evolution," the celebrated New York filmmaker told MTV News at the Sundance Film Festival about his movie's origins. "I don't know anyone who the first time they sit down to talk has [a story] mapped out from beginning, middle and end. It was the evolution of a germ of an idea and we kept building layer upon layer upon layer."
Where did that germ of an idea come from, you ask? Believe it or not, the answer is none other than horror novelist Stephen King, at least in part.
Like the cast members of "Arrested Development," anyone and everyone that's ever been associated with the short-lived cult comedy series "Party Down" inevitably find themselves fielding the same question: when's the movie coming out?
Of course, a "Party Down" movie isn't guaranteed, but cast members Lizzy Caplan and Megan Mullally both told MTV News at the Sundance Film Festival that progress has been made on bringing the canceled series to the big screen.
"I think they're almost done with the script," said Caplan. "And I have no doubt that it'll be fairly close to flawless. We'll just move forward very quickly and hopefully be able to shoot something this year."
Boots, sunglasses, snow, pizza tacos… oh, and some movies to boot. Really, can more be asked from the Sundance Film Festival?
The answer is most assuredly "yes" if you ask certain attendees, but put the question to your fearless MTV Movies Blog editor and you'll find a different response. See, the Park City festival has more than lived up to every expectation of the MTV Movies team, from swag to screenings. We've had a fantastic time, but as with all good things, our journey is finally coming to a close.
But before we take our final bow, let's take a look around ourselves and size up our last moments at Sundance.
