Vin Diesel

Here we were getting ridiculously excited for "Fast and Furious 7" thanks to some serious casting news, but things are already underway on the set. Vin Diesel, who has taken to Facebook unlike any other celebrity, posted a picture from the set to his page that is already getting us pumped for our next dosage of insane action.

Diesel posted a picture with Paul Walker from the set with the caption, "The unknown road ahead... P.s. One from the set."

The road might be unknown, but it's certainly an exciting one. As teased after the credits of "Fast and Furious 6," Jason Statham is joining the cast as a man looking for revenge for his brother's death. Then there's Kurt Russell, who is also in talks to, along with Tony Jaa and Djimon Hounsou. These are all stellar editions to what was already a solid ensemble cast.

"Fast and Furious 7" is scheduled to hit theaters on July 11, 2014.

Fantastic Beasts

Yesterday, J.K. Rowling revealed her plans to spoil us all with a new movie set in the "Harry Potter" universe that she's writing. The films based on "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" will follow the fictional encyclopedia's author, Newt Scamander, seventy years before the events of Rowling's classic series of books.

Since the events of the "Harry Potter" series begin in 1991, that places the timeline for the "Fantastic Beasts" movie somewhere in the 1920s, long before Harry or even his parents were born. So while we won't see the likes of Hermione Granger or Ron Weasley, there are a number of "Harry Potter" characters that could appear as younger versions of themselves.

"How I Live Now," a film that just premiered at TIFF starring Saoirse Ronan, may be about a third world war breaking out, but it's a love story at its heart. As a 19-year-old actress, Ronan is finding herself in more and more adult situations on screen, and "How I Live Now" was the actress' first experience filming a sex scene.

When MTV News' Josh Horowitz sat down with Ronan at TIFF, she recalled what it was like to go through a scene like that for the first time.

"I actually wasn't nervous about it," Ronan said. "It was always written in the script, and there needed to be a sex scene in this film. They needed to consummate their love, I think, in order for us to really feel the heartbreak when they're separated because obviously, it becomes a lot more intense after."

Need for Speed

Next year already has a ton of movies that we're looking forward to, but "Need for Speed" holds a special spot on our most-anticipated list for a number of reasons. The first has to be Aaron Paul, making his jump to big-budget films soon after the ending of "Breaking Bad." We're also always hoping for a video game-based movie that isn't horrible.

And what we've seen so far from "Need for Speed" is shaping up nicely. While we can't tell too much from these new images (via EW), they do remind us that there is a very solid cast.

"Need for Speed" is an adaptation of the popular racing game, and it stars Paul, "50 Shades of Grey" lead Dakota Johnson, Dominic Cooper, Kid Cudi, and Michael Keaton. You can see some of these people in the two new images from EW below!

It only seems like yesterday that Daniel Radcliffe was stepping off the Hogwarts Express for the first time, but here we are, 12 years later, the boy is now not only a man, but an experienced sex actor.

A sex actor? Yes, a sex actor. That's what MTV News' Josh Horowitz asked Radcliffe all about when they met up at the Toronto International Film Festival, where three of his movies ("Kill Your Darlings," "Horns," "The F Word") were playing.

In the latest edition of After Hours, you'll get to hear first-hand how Radcliffe honed his skills as a sex actor and who he looks to for sex acting inspiration.

Star Wars

It's kind of amazing, what people consider news about "Star Wars: Episode VII" these days. Yesterday, apparently starved for info from that galaxy far, far away, many outlets picked up a Hollywood Reporter story that said Abrams is converting some of his Bad Robot headquarters into production space, complete with green room and sound studio.

When Latino-Review picked up the story, they added that a source from the London set says that the interiors of the Millennium Falcon have already been build there.

Of course there's a set for the Millennium Falcon. Granted, it's early, but an appearance from the series' most iconic ship was guaranteed when Lucasfilm decided to make a sequel trilogy. As long as we're naming things that will definitely be in "Episode VII," here are four more that you can count on seeing.

It's a geek rivalry that has gone back generations. "Star Wars" or "Star Trek"? Even in this day and age, the question can still divide a crowd, even one a seemingly one-sided as the folks that showed up to the "Star Trek Into Darkness" Blu-ray event.

MTV News headed out to the red carpet to see which franchise would come out on top when pitted against each other. Cast members from "Star Trek Into Darkness" get to decide who would come out on top in a fight. Ewoks or Klingons? Vader of Khan?

Watch the video above to see who is victorious, and catch "Star Trek Into Darkness" on Blu-ray and DVD now.

As we get closer and closer to the finale of "Breaking Bad," more and more people are paying homage to the series that has entertained us for five unbelievably tense seasons.

Last night on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," the talk show host delivered his respectful and accurate parody of the series, stepping into the shoes of Walter White.

The premise of the 12-minute parody is that Fallon only has six months to live... as the host of "Late Night" before he moves over to "The Tonight Show." To make the most of his remaining months, he begins to sell his own higher grade of jokes the desperate junkies.

The video is full of surprises and hilarious cameos and is definitely worth checking out for any diehard "Breaking Bad" fan.
