Gravity

By Amelia Mularz

The government shutdown is NOT projected to affect Goobers sales. Thank god. Head to an institution you can count on—the movie theater̵and catch a flick. Here's what's happening this weekend:

On the Big Screen: "Gravity"
Gravity, the sexiest of all of Newton's laws, has always been a mainstay in entertainment. There was the song by John Mayer, and later a jingle of the same name by Sara Bareilles. Also, the witches in the musical "Wicked" defied gravity, as did Bieber's hair for most of 2012. Well, this weekend Sandra Bullock (Ryan Stone) and George Clooney (Matt Kowalski) get a massive dose of weightlessness when their characters get lost in space in Alfonso Cuarón's new film "Gravity." The movie will take you for a ride, it'll revive your love for oxygen, and it'll have you wondering if the characters are wearing adult diapers under their space suits. James Cameron has already called it "the best space film ever." That coming from the guy who gave us "Aliens"? Um yeah, go see it.

Star Wars

By Alex Zalben

Because a day can't go by without some small bit of "Star Wars" news, today brings the tiniest news item of them all. NimbleBit, makers of the insanely addictive mobile game Tiny Tower will be releasing a new version called "Star Wars: Tiny Death Star." I've got a bad feeling about this...

...Specifically that the Star Wars themed game will be as fun and time consuming as the original, if not more so. Here's the official blurb from Disney Interactive:

Breaking Bad

By Alex Zalben

Since "Breaking Bad" finished its run on Sunday, we've had plenty of other things to talk about: Miley Cyrus' stuff, some junk about the government shutdown or whatever, and of course, Spanish "Breaking Bad." Yet for some reason, people seem obsessed with talking about one of the most haunting, perfectly realized TV finales of all time.

Who are these people? Comedian Norm Macdonald, who seems set to continue our long national nightmare of fascinating and plausible "Breaking Bad" ending theories with one that posits... Well, spoilers after this point.

Super-sad about the end of "Breaking Bad?" Good news, then, it's coming back! In Spanish! Really!

The Spanish language remake of "Breaking Bad" – titled "Metástasis" – was announced a few months ago, but now we finally have a look at the weird, mirror-universe version that is the final product.

Breaking Bad

First, there's the classic shot of Walter White in his tightie-whities, except with Diego Trujillo playing Walter Blanco. (No, we're not joking.)

Any time that Joseph Gordon-Levitt makes a movie that he also stars in and that co-stars his "Angel in the Outfield" Tony Danza there are going to be a lot of questions.

That's why MTV News' Josh Horowitz sat the duo down at this year's Sundance Film Festival for the latest edition of the Yes/No Show.

During the game where they can only answer "yes" or "no," we discover the secrets behind "Angels in the Outfield," find out whether "3rd Rock From the Sun" was better than "Who's the Boss" and if Bane's voice had anything to do with Cobra Commander.

Jack Ryan

By Alex Zalben

In a bit of unfortunate timing, the same day author Tom Clancy passed away at age 66, the first poster for Kenneth Branagh's reboot of Clancy's most famous character, Jack Ryan has hit the 'nets.

Featuring a moody Chris Pine holding a gun, and what looks like a Russian city or possibly a Christmas tree village in the background, the poster doesn't tell us a whole lot. That said, with the first trailer hitting tomorrow at 7:30pm ET, here's what we're hoping to find out from Mr. Ryan's latest adventure:

Hobbit

By Alex Zalben

There's still two months to go until the second part of Peter Jackson's "Hobbit" trilogy hits theaters, but the new trailer is a bevy of riches worthy of Smaug's stash. Here's a look at ten can't miss (and blink-and-you'll miss) moments from the just released two minutes and twenty-eight seconds:

After last night's blockbuster finale, it's clear that not only did "Breaking Bad" end the right way, there's almost no other way the show COULD have ended.... Except, as it turns out, creators Vince Gilligan had a few other outs up his sleeve, according to a post-game interview with EW. Here's a rundown of how Heisenberg might have met his ultimate fate, if things hadn't turned out quite as perfectly:

Snoova

By Ryan Rigley

With the rumored return of Harrison Ford as Han Solo in the highly-anticipated "Star Wars VII," it would seem a fairly safe bet to make that the smuggler's famed Wookie compatriot, Chewbacca, will also be returning in the new trilogy. Last week, Den of Geek found a casting call put out by Walt Disney Pictures that describes attributes similar to that of a Wookie: "Male, 7 ft to 7.3 ft tall with a slim/thin build and upright posture. Not too worked out or too 'thick set' especially in the shoulders. Broad facial features would be a bonus."

Although early rumors of original Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew being replaced in the new trilogy due to a serious illness have been popping up recently, Mayhew himself has now squashed those rumors stating "I intend to pursue the role of Chewbacca for Episode VII." That said, what other notable Wookies might be showing up in the new "Star Wars" trilogy? Our vote is for Snoova, the infamous Wookie bounty hunter!

Don Jon

By Amelia Mularz

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.
