"The Devil's Double" is an impressive feat on a lot of levels, but there's no doubt that it's the work of actor Dominic Cooper as two wildly different roles — the psychotic son of Saddam Hussein, Uday, and his reluctant body double, Latif Yahia — that absolutely sells the movie. Even though the acting effort was a fantastic success on Cooper's part, there were some initial doubts about how the "Devil's Double" production team would be able to pull it off.
"Even as I was writing this, I was thinking, 'I don't know how the f--- we're going to do this,'" confesses writer Michael Thomas in this exclusive clip from the "Devil's Double" DVD, in stores on Tuesday (November 22). "How are you going to get a performance out of one guy, then another performance out of the same guy at the same time, when they're in practically every single scene?"
FROM MTV MOVIES: The books are long finished, the movies are now over, but all it takes is one step inside the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Florida, to know that "Potter" is forever.
Still, despite the ever-flowing butterbeer and copious amounts of "Potter"-based roller-coaster rides, there's always room for improvement, even at the Wizarding World. After all, the "Potter" universe is just too grand to fit every single element into one theme park. With that in mind, when MTV News traveled down to Orlando to cover the red-carpet celebration of the "Deathly Hallows Part 2" DVD release, we asked the cast and crew to weigh in on which features of J.K. Rowling's imaginative world they'd like to see included in future park updates.

The wizarding world of "Harry Potter" and the Whoverse are about to collide. "Deathly Hallows" director David Yates has announced his partnership with BBC to direct a big-screen take on "Doctor Who," the long-running British television series about the sci-fi exploits of the Time Lord. Yates says the movie has no writers as of yet, is two to three years from beginning production, and will have little to nothing to do with the "Who" continuity that's come before. Get all the details here.
There's more comic book movie news beyond the jump!
"The Hunger Games" trailer is here, and by the look of things, the odds are ever in your favor… if you know what you're looking at, that is.
For fans of Suzanne Collins' novels, this is the best look yet at the Jennifer Lawrence starring adaptation. Having read the book, I'm very happy with the outcome. But those of you who haven't read "The Hunger Games," I can imagine some head-scratching over the new trailer.
We're getting closer and closer to the official release of "Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol," the fourth entry in the Tom Cruise-starring spy franchise. And with a fast-approaching release date comes a double dose of "M:I 4" news, beginning with a brand new poster, which you can see above.
In addition to the new poster, news has dropped that the fourth "Mission" is headed to Dubai once again. After shooting what looks to be one heck of a breathtaking action sequence on the massive Burj Khalifa tower, "Ghost Protocol" is returning to the city for the eighth annual Dubai International Film Festival.
"Immortals" arrived in theaters this weekend and stole the box office's thunder, proving that fall season moviegoers were indeed craving some hard R-rated action. Of course, the comparisons to "300" couldn't have hurt Tarsem Singh's latest picture's box office performance. Over on Splash Page, we measured out the similarities and differences between "Immortals" and "300" and decided which one we like better. It was a close call, but there was a winner.

At long last, "Immortals" has finally arrived! Director Tarsem Singh's swords-and-sandals epic slashes its way into theaters today (November 11) to deliver one of the greatest visual thrill rides of the fall movie season.
"Immortals" stars Henry Cavill as Theseus, a strong youth who finds himself caught in a war between mortal men and beings from another plane of existence. The vicious King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) seeks an ancient and terrible power, and only Theseus, who comes to possess the legendary Epirius Bow, can put an end to his reign of terror.
There's little doubt that "Immortals" is the most action-packed movie currently in theaters. For those of you seeking blood, guts and gore, there's no excuse to miss this one. If you need additional reasons to check out "Immortals," we've got five beyond the jump.
"Do you like to smell pretty?" Never before have such innocent words held such horrible meaning, as Jonah Hill found out firsthand during the filming of "The Sitter."
In an exclusive clip that debuted during "MTV First: 'The Sitter'" earlier this evening, Hill's "Sitter" character Noah Jaybird finds himself taking care of a cute little angel who's secretly anything but. Her first course of action towards her new babysitter: spray a straight stream of perfume directly into his mouth, not once, but twice. Needless to say, the prank does not go over well.
FROM HOLLYWOOD CRUSH: Mirror, mirror on the wall, which "Snow White" movie is the greatest of them all? It's still too soon to answer that question, perhaps, but "Snow White and the Huntsman" certainly has the advantage right now thanks to its newly released trailer!
The first official "Snow White and the Huntsman" trailer arrived online today courtesy of Apple, gifting fans with their best look yet at what director Rupert Sanders has in store for his fairy tale starring "Twilight" sensation Kristen Stewart, "Thor" star Chris Hemsworth and "Monster" Oscar winner Charlize Theron. Needless to say, that "Lord of the Rings" vibe that was promised is most certainly on display here.

File this under things I definitely did not see coming: I am actually, seriously psyched to see "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island."
The "Journey 2" trailer, which debuted this week at Yahoo, is fantastically strange and ridiculous. A sequel to "Journey to the Center of the Earth," this latest adventure ditches Brendan Fraser for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and keeps Josh Hutcherson firmly in place, carrying the torch for the Anderson family featured in the 2008 movie.
