It's been an exciting few days if you're a "Potter" fan. Just a few days ago we learned that "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" will be split at roughly chapter 24. Now, Warner Bros. has released a slew of photos for the self-proclaimed "motion picture of a generation" to excite fans even further.

It's hard to tell which film these photos will be from, but don't let that minor detail hinder the excitement surrounding photos from the last book's films.

Check out blood, romance and much more pictured in our "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" photo gallery, and feel free to express your excitement in the comments below.

Luckily for all of us, "Deathly Hallows Part 1" isn't too far off. With the film releasing just three months from now on November 19, we can expect much from the film to whet our appetites.

Then, the second half concludes an excruciating eight months later on July 15, 2011.

Well, that was tremendously unsatisfying.

In the end, President Allison Taylor doesn't sign the peace agreement with the Islamic Republic that she worked so hard -- and broke several laws -- to create. She's overwhelmed with guilt about the conspiracy she helped cover up against President Hassan. Dalia Hassan found out about the Russians' involvement, and that President Taylor subsequently knew about it. Furious, she had threatened to pull out of the agreement, but President Taylor threatened her with a nuclear strike if she exposed the truth.

After all the lies and former President Charles Logan's plans (he shoots himself, by the way, and for some reason the show didn't entirely kill him off, leaving him ripe for more Jack Bauer torture in a "24" movie), President Taylor can't go through with the treaty under these circumstances. She pulls out. Read More...

FROM HOLLYWOOD CRUSH: Ben Affleck said it best when we spoke to the star a couple of days ago and Josh Horowitz asked him to sum up Sundance so far: "Weirdly, it's snow, movies and giveaway lounges … I don't know why that happened."

The Sundance swag suites are everywhere, and showcase a vast array of products. However, this aspect of Sundance is only reality to a select few, and most festival-goers are probably not even aware that Sundance is a mecca of free stuff for celebs. The festival is, after all, first and foremost about the films. Since access to these suites is restricted, we're here to give a taste of what else is happening in Park City besides movie screenings and premieres.

Just what is a "visual album," anyway? Animal Collective, along with filmmaker Danny Perez, hope to educate their fans on the terminology when their film "ODDSAC" premieres at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT on January 26.

After over four years of collaboration, the band and Perez will present a film that features an original score of new songs that won't appear in any other form. "It was meant to be an open-ended operation of audio-video synthesis, the passing back and forth of visuals and sound so that each would inform the other and create an organic structure," the filmmaker said.

While it doesn't look like Animal Collective fans will be able to find an album available to download or buy in stores, the film will hit theaters in April and May and make its way to DVD in June.

In the meantime, enjoy an exclusive psychedelic image from the visual album "ODDSAC" and keep watching the Twitter feed for the latest updates.

Okay... several things are going on right now, so let's get right to the break down.

Maxie and James Franco do a flirty dance of words in his studio, where he tells lie after lie and suddenly she grows a brain and believes none of it. Maxie kind of "gets" Franco's creepy facade, and is even turned on by it. There's more kinky blindfold action, and then there's action of a different sort. You know, the kind that will cause Spinelli's heart to break into a million shards like the glass Maxie dramatically throws to the floor. Read More...

Let's start by saying that nothing good ever comes out of all of Port Charles congregating in the same place at the same time. Through the recent carnival calamity, hospital fire and Metro Court hotel hostage crisis (just to name some of the more recent mega-disasters) you'd think that our PC friends would have learned this by now.

(As an aside, I was just recalling some of the fiascos the writers have introduced for sweeps over the years, and the time that half the town got monkey virus doesn't seem so ridiculous now that we have problems like swine flu. But I digress.)

Friends, welcome to the Crimson gallery opening! Literally every major character will find a reason to attend. Read More...

Today's the day! James Franco made his soap debut on "General Hospital" as Franco.

Franco appears to be, on the one hand, an elusive but promising photographer who will show his work at a Crimson magazine gallery event. On the other hand, he makes his first appearance on the show dressed like a homeless person, lurking in the shadows as mobster Sonny Corinthos and his right-hand man Jason Morgan walk into a mob trap that turns violent on Front Street in Port Charles.

Franco witnesses the entire shootout, which leaves Sonny victorious and his rivals down for the count. As Sonny and Jason drive away from the scene of the crime, Franco, with a hoodie hiding his face, waves at the limo, taunting Jason. Read More...

Get ready folks! "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" premiered yesterday in Japan. Stars Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox, director Michael Bay, hotties Tyrese Gibson and Josh Duhamel, and even the radio-broadcasting Autobot Bumblebee made the trip all the way to the land of the rising sun to world premiere the "Transformers" sequel, "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen."

Japanese fans (including some sumo wrestlers!) came out in droves to cheer on the stars, and their support was rewarded with photo ops and autographs. Read More...

When I saw Malin Akerman on the Movie Awards red carpet on Sunday night, she looked amazing. She wore a white pants suit with a pastel cami under the jacket. Very sleek. Well the actress outdid herself the following night, at yesterday's premiere for her new film "The Proposal."

Sunday's look had included some slicked hair, but Monday's 'do was much more feminine. Loose, wavy and maybe even a little bedhead, Malin's hair looked great with her short, shiny blue dress. The ensemble was a far cry from her skin tight "Watchmen" getup, but just as sexy. (Check out a shot of Malin Akerman after the jump, plus check out our "Proposal" premiere photo gallery.)

My position during the show was the limo drop, which is where the stars go when they leave the show and hop into their ride. During the show but after all his hilarity, Sacha Baron Cohen was sitting in the back of a black SUV with the window rolled down. His head disappeared from view, which is really not a surprising occurrence, until the body that replaced his was Jim Carrey. I'm assuming they must have traded seats in the car.

Off to the side, Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell were talking amongst themselves, when suddenly Dax ran over to the Jim-Sacha car and reached in to hug Jim Carrey and wave to Sacha, now sitting on the other side of the car. Read More...
