In a teacher/student relationship, there's a line you're always told not to cross. Movies, however, can not only cross those lines, but hurdle over them. Such is the case with Adam Sandler's "That's My Boy."
The film centers on Donny (Sandler), who knocked up his teacher (Eva Amurri) when he was just a teenager and raised his son Han Solo Berger (Andy Samberg) as a single parent until Han's 18th birthday. After a financial mishap, Donny reemerges in Han's life right before his wedding and must face the consequences of his appalling parenting skills.
Sometimes it's hard to remember that a lot of today's A-list celebrities began acting when they were young kids. Leonardo DiCaprio played Luke on the hit show "Growing Pains" and had an incredible performance in "What's Eating Gilbert Grape." Similarly, Kirsten Dunst landed a key role in "Interview with the Vampire" before breaking out in the biz. Today we were reminded of one of Joseph Gordon-Levitt's first roles when Leonard Nimoy posted an old photograph. Talk about throwback!
The photo shows Nimoy directing JGL and Patricia Arquette in "Holy Matrimony," a film following a Hutterite boy who, following his brother's death, must marry his wife—an outsider to his Anabaptist community. Maybe we'll add this movie to our Sick Day Stash.
We hope you stocked up on your favorite energy drinks and late-night snacks and made sure your internet connection is set to lightning speed, "Snow White and the Huntsman" fans. Why, you ask?

It's no secret that readers become protective of their beloved novels when a film company takes on the ambitious task of turning it into a movie. Fans rally behind their favorite actors to play the lead roles and voice their concerns over the script staying true to the book. When it comes to Stephenie Meyer's, "The Host," the response has been no different.
Luckily fans have been warm to lead actors Saoirse Ronan and Max Irons, but will they be happy with the script? Cast your worries aside Meyer fans! When MTV News headed out for a behind-the-scenes look at the big-screen adaptation of Meyer's novel, she told us that she's had more input in this film thanks to director Andrew Niccol.
He's baaaaaaaaaack. No, we're not talking about Mr. Schwarzenegger. We're talking about Jon Favreau, of course. He's making his return to Marvel for "Iron Man 3"! While he won't be directing the three-quel, he's reprising his role as Happy Hogan, Tony Stark's bodyguard and side-kick.
The story line for the third film is currently being kept under wraps, so we're not certain how large his part will be. He appeared in the first film for a cameo with a more fleshed out part in the second movie—perhaps he'll be essential to the third?
The "Men in Black" are back with the third installment of their popular franchise. The movie centers on our favorite men in black, Agent K and Agent J, as they trail a one-armed alien named Boris the Animal who escapes from his confined prison on the moon. K shot his arm off back in the sixties and Boris wants his revenge. He travels back in time to 1969 and kills K so that his arm is restored and the world is left unprotected from alien invasion. J must follow Boris to the past to save K's life and discover the secrets of the universe.
While critics suggest the franchise didn't need a third film, the three-quel is on par with the first "MIB" movie that sparked audiences' attention. It keeps its viewers entertained and will delight fans who loved the first flick. Here are our five reasons to see it this weekend.
Romance movies rarely offer a look behind closed doors. They'll show the couple on a pond ice skating in the winter or walking along the beach engaged in a conversation to define their relationship. But in this exclusive "Take This Waltz" clip, Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen mirror a married couple's everyday tasks as they have a small bout, following a scene of intimacy.
Williams plays Margot, a 28 year old freelance writer happily married to her husband Lou (Rogen). Their interaction in this clip sets up their visible love for each other. He looks affectionately at her saying, "I'm glad you're here." She treads over and wraps her arms around him as he's cooking breakfast. They end up in a giggly, playful embrace on the floor before things start to go south.
FROM MTV NEWS: Those of you who thought 3-D was an experience, you ain't seen nothin' yet! When Kanye West's experimental film "Cruel Summer" debuted at Cannes this week, it wasn't just a premiere, it was an event.
MTV News was on hand to witness the short film displayed on seven separate screens, alternating between different camera angles of one shot and a single wide screen display.
"I was very particular about having the screens separate, where your mind puts the screens back together, the way you put memories together," the rapper said. "I'm not the best director in the world, but I had an idea that I thought would be amazing to inspire people, like a dream of one day this being the way people watch movies."
The 30-minute film follows a high-end car thief, played by Kid Cudi, who falls for a blind Arabian princess, but isn't allowed to marry her until he helps her see (figuratively, of course).
Check out our full coverage of "Cruel Summer" over at MTV News, and read what Cudi tells us about watching himself on-screen.
Running home to catch "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" after school as a kid, I never would've thought that 15 years later I'd be standing on the deck of the USS Intrepid watching Will Smith lead the crowd in singing the famous theme song. But that's exactly what I experienced last night.
Columbia Pictures treated the guests of the "Men in Black 3" premiere to a special after party on the ship docked at New York's Pier 86. As I walked on board I was greeted—or rather eyed—by men in black lining the balcony around the colorfully lit stage, letting us know not even the aliens in "Battleship" could get past these guys.
If you haven't noticed, the MTV Movies team is quite excited to see Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis' film "Looper." Between an awesome movie poster and trailer commentary from the director himself, Rian Johnson, our anticipation keeps building.
The film focuses on the criminal use of time-travel technology to send targets back to the past where they're taken out by assassins called Loopers. These murderers live an extravagant lifestyle with the understanding that one day they'll be sent back through time and killed themselves, in order to close the loop. Looper JGL's day is up when his future self is sent back in time and manages to escape his grasp. Willis plays the older version of JGL's character and recently told Esquire that the film is "better than anything [he's] ever done."
