Kathryn Bigelow's follow-up to her historic Oscar win for "The Hurt Locker," an untitled film about Osama Bin Laden, naturally drew a lot of attention as soon as it was announced.

But last week, a deluge of casting news drove anticipation through the roof with the confirmation that both Chris Pratt and Joel Edgerton had joined the project and that Jessica Chastain, Mark Strong and Edgar Ramirez were in talks.

MTV News' Josh Horowitz spoke with Pratt and Chastain on the red carpet for the Critics' Choice Awards about working with Bigelow and the work that goes into preparing for a project like this.

On the red carpet for the People's Choice Awards, Chloe Moretz took some time off from teasing "Kick-Ass 2" news to explain why "Dark Shadows" will be the movie to see this year.

"Because it has everything. It has a little bit of camp," Moretz said. "It has a little bit of danger. It has the supernatural features, vampires, witches, all the fun stuff."

So far, "Dark Shadows" has done more than enough to convince fans it's a movie worth seeing. The Tim Burton-directed adaptation of the cult classic soap opera pulled off a stunning upset victory over "The Amazing Spider-Man" in the first round of MTV Movie Brawl 2012. It will certainly face some stiff competition from a man who knows a thing or two about shadows, when "Dark Shadows" goes head-to-head with "The Dark Knight Rises" in the next round.

If you aren't too confident with a crab and a mallet, don't worry. Common will show you the way.

In this exclusive clip from "LUV," Common plays a man with a troubled past who forms an unlikely bond with his nephew over the course of one day in Baltimore. Here, he shows the boy how to crack a crab.

Director and co-writer Sheldon Candis based the film on his experiences growing up with his uncle who, unbeknownst to Candis at the time, was a notorious drug dealer.

"LUV" will premiere at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.

What did you think of the clip? Let us know in the comment section and on Twitter!

Dan, wake up! Look behind you!

Just try to watch this exclusive clip with Daniel Radcliffe from "The Woman in Black" and not yell at the screen.

The new Victorian ghost story follows Radcliffe's character Arthur Kipps, a young lawyer and widower who has a penchant for falling asleep while horrifying ghosts approach him from behind. The dog knows something is up. Hell, even the stuffed monkey can't look. Wake up! Wake up!

Here's a video of two guys who have no idea what they're getting into.

The exclusive clip you're about to view is from the upcoming action movie, "Haywire," starring the queen of mix martial arts, Gina Carano, and that should tell you just about everything. As Ewan McGregor's character advises in the clip, "Don't think of her as a woman. That would be a mistake."

Benedict Cumberbatch

Benedict Cumberbatch's name can be seen almost everywhere these days ever since J.J. Abrams cast him as the main villain in "Star Trek 2," but that isn't the only big franchise where you'll see the British actor in the next few years.

A few months ago, Peter Jackson chose Cumberbatch for the iconic role of Smaug in "The Hobbit," for which he'll provide the motion performance for the famous dragon. The announcement for Cumberbatch's casting, however, offered an unexpected piece of additional news. Some spoilers ahead...

So... they're going to try to kill their bosses again?

One of the summer's biggest box office surprises, "Horrible Bosses," will likely have a sequel, reuniting the same creative team from the original film. According to the Hollywood Reporter, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, the screenwriting team behind the surprise $118 million hit, have just signed on to write the follow-up.

The film's leads, Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis, are all expected to return for the sequel, in addition to the original director, Seth Gordon.

The other big comedy hit from last summer, "Bridesmaids," has also been at the center of sequel talk, but a new report from the Hollywood Reporter claims that Universal is ready to move ahead with a follow-up with or without star and co-writer Kristen Wiig.

As a former one, I can personally tell you that the worst kind of person to give super powers to is a high school boy. No matter how noble they may seem, things are always going to get ugly. In "Chronicle," three high school buddies are lucky enough to earn special abilities after they make a mysterious discovery. And not that you need to be told, raging hormones and super powers don't mix well.

Chronicle

You might recognize the guy in the middle of this first look at a new "Chronicle" photo as Michael B. Jordan, from "The Wire" and the last two seasons of "Friday Night Lights." He plays one of the gifted teens, so you might as well imagine that Vince Howard went on to score some sweet super powers after "FNL" ended. Dane DeHaan and Alex Russell make up the rest of the trio.

After the release of an impressive first trailer, expectations for "Snow White and the Huntsman" shot sky high. All of the sudden, a film that people knew almost nothing about aside from its star-studded cast led by Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth, became one of the most anticipated movies of 2012.

But the question lingers for many fans: can Kristen Stewart carry a film that isn't "Twilight"? She didn't speak a word in the trailer, which depended largely on a perfectly evil Charlize Theron to sell the film, and potential Twi-hard backlash could sink "SWATH" before it even hits theaters.

One of Snow White's trusted dwarves, Nick Frost, assured MTV News that Stewart does more than enough to prove herself.

Batman

We knew the first theatrical trailer for Christopher Nolan's Batman finale would be a huge hit, but not 12.5 million huge! In the week after the trailer's massive debut, anticipation is still high for "The Dark Knight Rises." New high quality stills and renewed interest in an unused clip from "The Dark Knight" only added fuel to the rising fire. Here are the week's biggest Batman's stories so far.
