A while back, Disney announced their plans to release a new "Star Wars" film each year starting in 2015. With a new trilogy currently in the works, rumors of several "Star Wars" spin-off films have been popping up all over the Internet in recent months. But who will be starring in said spin-off films? According to JoBlo, the rumors of a "Boba Fett" and a "Young Han Solo" spin-off film are both 100% accurate.
Apparently, Disney plans on releasing the two films in 2016 and 2018 respectively with the "Young Han Solo" movie focusing on how he and Chewbacca met and came to own the Millennium Falcon. While this is all very exciting, we can't help but wonder about the fate of the new "Star Wars" trilogy and what memorable minor characters might be popping up onscreen. Take Oola for example, the Twi'lek dancer that Jabba the Hutt feeds to his pet rancor in "Return of the Jedi."
This weekend Sandra Bullock returns to the realm of crime-fighting comedy with "The Heat," her new film with Melissa McCarthy, but seeing the Oscar winner with a gun and a badge has us reminiscing about the movie that started it all, the gem that is "Miss Congeniality."

Cameron Diaz...that old grouch.
While we still may think of her as the hot girl who licked Jim Carrey's face in "The Mask," or the hot girl with the "hair gel" in "There's Something About Mary," or the hot girl (is this typecasting or what?) who boogied in her tighty whities in "Charlie's Angels," times they are a-changin'.

Roland Emmerich returns this weekend with "White House Down," yet another ode to all-out mayhem and destruction (not that I'm complaining). This time around, he hired Channing Tatum as our savior in a white tank top (again, not complaining). Before you go see "WHD," here is everything you could possibly need to know about the stripper-turned-Sexiest Man Alive.
Today marked a historic victory for marriage equality when the Supreme Court struck down DOMA, an event many in Hollywood and around the country have hoped for for years. As soon as the decision was announced, celebrities took to Twitter to express their support.

The technology behind action figures, especially those cast in the likenesses of A-list actors, have come a long way since "Star Wars" kicked off the merchandising state we now live in. Now we have 3-D scans of actors shrunken down to fit in the palm of your hand, but that always wasn't the case.
The folks over at Next Movie are serving up a reminder of just how far we've come with a new series of Photoshops that insert classic action figures in the posters of movies featuring the character. The result is a vaguely recognizable poster for "Star Wars" and a several other one sheets filled the plastic (sort of) likenesses of some of our most iconic characters.

"Catfish: The TV Show" debuts its second season tonight at 10 p.m. ET, and Nev and Max have been promising all sorts of firsts, like a couple who got engaged without ever meeting in person. While that's a mighty impressive feat, it's overshadowed by what went down this April around the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.
That's when Mark Wahlberg proved to be the greatest Catfisher of them all when he tricked MTV News' Josh Horowitz, Joe Manganiello, and Anne Kendrick into thinking that they were all dating. It was the first-ever triple Catfish, and the world was never the same again.
Before checking out the new episodes of "Catfish: The TV Show," which begin tonight on MTV at 10 p.m. ET / 9 p.m. CT, let Mark Wahlberg show you how it's done on "Celebrity Catfish."

Now that production on "Star Wars VII' is starting to heat up, the flood gates have been opened for rumors a plenty regarding the film. Last Wednesday, Bleeding Cool intercepted a casting breakdown for the movie revealing seven brand new characters; late-teen female, young twenty-something male, late twenty-something male, seventy-something male, second young female, forty-something male, and thirty-something male.
While there may not be any character names revealed thus far, judging by the casting breakdown it's fairly safe to say that the previous rumor of Jaina and Jacen Solo being the main focus of the new trilogy is false. Han and Leia's twin children may not be appearing in "Star Wars VII" after all, but we can't help but wonder what memorable characters from the original trilogy will be showing up. Take Zuckuss for example, the Gand bounty hunter that briefly appears in "Empire Strikes Back."

With today's release of "World War Z," there are many outlets reviewing the film. So where do you go to get the most honest opinion? The team from NextMovie met up with hip-hop group Flatbush Zombies and put them on the spot for their latest episode of Rappers Review Movies. The group discussed the special effects, what sets this movie apart from other zombie movies and most notably, Brad Pitt’s hair.
“I like that they went all around the world and didn’t stay in a mall,” Meechy Darko enthused. He continued to discuss with his “girl on the right” (Zombie Juice) that “movement is key to life.”

Nineteen years after the first film's release, "Independence Day 2" is definitely happening. On Thursday, Twentieth Century Fox announced that the sequel to the blockbuster film "Independence Day" will make its big screen debut in 2015. The 1996 classic, “Independence Day” starring Will Smith, Bill Pullman and Jeff Goldblum set the tone for all the big-budget disaster movies that have since followed, and made director Roland Emmerich a big time movie maker.
"'Independence Day' was always like the king who leads his troops into battle against an evil force, and that stays like that," said Emmerich in a previous interview with MTV News.
