Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford may still be in negotiations to reprise their roles as Luke, Leia and Han Solo respectively, but that doesn't necessarily mean that we'll be hearing any details about "Star Wars VII" any time soon. "I don't feel anything at the moment yet," Ford teases about his reported role in the new "Star Wars" trilogy. "I don't even want to discuss that. It's great. Ain't it great?"
Obviously, fan-favorite "Star Wars" characters (such as Han Solo) will be making an appearance in the new trilogy in some way, shape or form. But what's to become of all of those other "Star Wars" characters that aren't quite as well known? Characters like Nien Nunb for example, the pancake-faced alien who co-pilots the Millennium Falcon with Lando Calrissian during the Battle of Endor.
It may have taken a year worth of waiting, but when "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" finally did arrive this past week, it came with a bang.
The action sequel, which stars Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Channing Tatum for all of 15 minutes, took in a truly impressive $132 million worldwide, with $50 million of that coming from the good old U.S. of A. The debut made for the second best Easter opening ever. Returns on "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" were so good, in fact, that producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura has already announced plans for a third movie.
The other major release of the week, Stephenie Meyer's "The Host," did not fare so well. The sci-fi adaptation took in only $11 million, good enough for just a sixth place finish, behind "Oz the Great and Powerful," now in its fourth week at theaters.
Head over to MTV News for you full box office report.
Before you see "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" in theaters this weekend, there's a little something you should know about the beloved 1980s G.I. Joe cartoon. Sure, it's about an elite force of American soldiers taking on the evil terrorism of Cobra. But for the most part, the show was next level crazy. The only show that could potentially out-crazy "G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero" is "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe," and that series isn't even set on Earth.
For a show ostensibly about real American heroes, "G.I. Joe" brought the bonkers. Narrowing the series' craziest episodes down was a hard task (almost as hard as the genetic pillaging Cobra undertook to create their master, Serpentor). Here are the five craziest episodes of "G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero."
By now, you've probably heard that Emma Watson, the know-it-all wizard that won our hearts in the "Harry Potter" series and did it all over again in "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," will be the recipient of the Trailblazer Award at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.
Now, if you're familiar with Watson and her work, you know about her many, many trailblazing moments throughout her years on the screen. If you aren't so well-studied in the ways of "HP" and "Perks," we've assembled a quick refresher of all those moments that made the actress a worthy honoree.

Okay, so there probably isn't much you don't know about RGos. If you're a true fan, you've likely heard this all before. But that doesn't mean you couldn't use a little refresher in advance of this weekend's "The Place Beyond the Pines." I mean, is there ever not a good time to talk about his torrid affair with Häagen-Dazs prior to "The Lovely Bones"? I didn't think so.
Channing Tatum knows how to fake drive, like, really well. That's what you need to take away from the newest 2013 MTV Movie Awards promo outtake.
Check out the clip above to see Tatum and your Movie Awards host Rebel Wilson try to make a convincing escape in a limo with an RPG. It takes convincing driving on Channing's part and believable car shaking to make it work.

The latest MTV original movie takes on a topic many of us are far too familiar with. In "Ladies Man: A MADE Movie," Toby wants to become a "stud" and convince all of the girls that he's friends with to see him in a different light (i.e. not as their gay best friend).
To do that, Toby decides to get a "MADE"-style makeover and enter the Mr. Olympus pageant, but will he ever figure out that all he has to do is be himself to get the girl? Probably. But it'll will be fun watching him get there.
"Ladies Man: A MADE Movie" will premiere on Tuesday, April 9 at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT. In the mean time, check out the movie's Facebook page and watch the "Ladies Man Guidebook" after the jump!
Rapper Riff Raff has not exactly remained quiet about the fact that he thinks James Franco ripped off his persona for the role of Alien in "Spring Breakers." But has Riff Raff actually seen Harmony Korine's indie hit?
Well, now he has.
The folks over at Next Movie did the world a favor and got Riff Raff to "review" "Spring Breakers" for them. The result is both unexpected and totally predictable.
Riff Raff claims that Franco bought a Riff Raff costume at the store and just put it on for "Spring Breakers," and then he proceeds to challenge the actor in a series of physical competitions to see which one of them is more legit.
