When the highly-anticipated "Lost" series finale hit our small screens back in 2010, it left a lot of questions unanswered and had a lot of viewers going, "Huh?" Fans felt like they were promised a big event, something emotional and moving—which it was—with an intelligent twist that would satiate our thirst for answers and let us finally sleep at night.
What we ended up getting felt like a neat bow tied too tight forcing us to be satisfied. Some were glad that the characters received a happy ending, but others wanted more. "Lost" writer and co-creator Damon Lindelof sat down with The Verge to discuss the finale recently and said the viewer reaction left him sad and created stress in his life.

America's favorite anchormen have returned to once again get classy, down scotch and make us all double over in laughter. Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and David Koechner reprise their roles in two new teaser trailers to give fans a taste of what we can expect in "Anchorman: The Legend Continues."
The Funny or Die video opens with a voiceover saying, "In the age when the dinosaurs' roar greeted the dawn and apes rode the winged horse across the valley of Eli, there was a lone stranger who offered comfort, wisdom and overly sexual neck massages. It was said that he would one day return. That day has come."
That lone stranger is, of course, Ron Burgundy. "Hey America, did you miss my hot breath in your ear?" he says.
There's no escaping the phenomenon created by the erotic novel "Fifty Shades of Grey." Beginning as "Twilight" fan fiction, the story follows billionaire tycoon Christian Grey and recent college graduate Ana Steele as they begin their sadomasochistic relationship. With the film's rights optioned by Universal Pictures and Focus Features, fans are wondering if Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson will land the lead roles for the characters adapted from Bella Swan and Edward Cullen. Well, the latest After Hours segment, titled "Erotica," may at least help Stewart get the part.
While she said she's interested in reading the sensual fan fiction about her "Twilight" character, she admitted she hasn't gotten around to seeing what the huge buzz is about. "I haven't bought ['Fifty Shades'] yet. I'm kind of dying to read it," she said.
Lucky for Stewart, MTV News' Josh Horowitz just so happened to have a copy on hand and he even generously dog-eared a page for her! She began to read, but not even a sentence in she closed the book and laughed, saying, "I can't believe I'm doing this."
When you think of a king of England and a president of the United States your mind rarely travels to outdoor barbeques and jumping in pools, but that's just what goes on in the "Hyde Park on Hudson" trailer—and Bill Murray lights up portraying Franklin D. Roosevelt.
While the film is based around real events, we're not sure how historically accurate the movie will turn out, but watching Murray take on the charm and gentle mannerisms of America's 32nd President is a jolly ol' delight.
Check out the first trailer below, and learn more about "Hyde Park on Hudson" after the jump!
There's no gain without the pain, right? Or at least that's what Michael Bay's latest project "Pain and Gain" tells us. Starring alongside Mark Wahlberg, is Dwyane "The Rock" Johnson and judging by his past career in WWE—and the fact that every single one of his muscles is probably the size of our head—he's someone we would not want to cross. Especially since one of the set photos shows him cooking a hand on a grill. Better to stay on his safe, non-Hulk-like side, no?
But that set photo is one of the last we'll see as The Rock just announced he wrapped filming in Miami today. "Pain and Gain" is a black comedy that follows a pair of bodybuilders who find themselves in an extortion ring and kidnapping plot that spirals way out of control.
Unless you happen to be madly in love with Taylor Kitsch or Brooklyn Decker, some of you have no doubt written "Battleship" off as a cheap imitation of "Transformers." How can an alien invasion action film based on a board game be all that entertaining, right? Well, we have a feeling you'll be pleasantly surprised.
The opening scenes between Kitsch and Alexander Skarsgård were flawlessly executed as the pair's brotherly chemistry and Kitsch's off-kilter charm win the audience over in the first few minutes. The film continues with non-stop action once the Navy hits the sea, and continues its intrigue as the movie incorporates the board game layout into the battles.
It's a summer flick that's sure to entertain, so here are our five reasons to see "Battleship."
Juno Temple grew up to live every little boy's and little girl's fantasy. Not only did she get to work with Batman in "The Dark Knight Rises," but it was announced today she'll be starring alongside Angelina Jolie in Disney's "Maleficent," playing a fairy. Meeting a superhero and living in a Disney fairy tale — it's the stuff that makes up childhood dreams!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Temple joins Imelda Saunton and Lesley Manville as Thistletwit, one of the pixie fairies who take care of Aurora while she's exiled to a cottage in the woods. All three of the fanciful creatures are described as "neglectful and superficial."
"Maleficent" is a unique take on the classic fairy tale, "Sleeping Beauty." Jolie is playing the title character, an evil witch who casts a spell on Princess Aurora (Elle Fanning) on her 16th birthday sending her into a permanent slumber.
The music industry lost a powerful voice today. The "Queen of Disco," Donna Summer, passed away this morning in Florida after a long battle with cancer. The five-time Grammy winner was known for her disco anthems "Last Dance," "Hot Stuff," "I Feel Love" and "Love to Love You Baby." The stars took to Twitter to mourn the legendary artist's death, including "Avengers" star Clark Gregg.
With lyrics reading, "When you're laying so close to me/There's no place I'd rather you be than with me/I love to love you, baby/Do it to me again and again," we can understand why Gregg feels that way. With a soulful voice Summer crooned the lyrics among whispers and moans in the background to create a song that has the power to make any man blush.
Today marks the beginning of the 2012 Cannes Film Festival! As actors, directors and filmmakers head to France over the next two weeks, certain stars are already making their splash. For instance, Sacha Baron Cohen (in character as Admiral General Aladeen) hosted a press conference in Croisette, Cannes' famous promenade, to promote "Dictator." Immediately following he hoisted himself on a camel—albeit with a struggle—and rode away for some shopping. Of course he did.
Also in attendance is Ewan McGregor, who's acting as a judge on the Cannes jury alongside fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier, french actress Emmanuelle Devos and Diane Kruger among others. The festival opens with the Wes Anderson film, "Moonrise Kingdom."
