Pretty much everyone who's ever been to high school has heard the claim that pineapple juices allegedly make a, uh, certain male quality taste better, but few have taken matters into their own hands as efficiently as Aubrey Plaza in her new movie "The To-Do List." In an exclusive MTV Sneak Peek Week clip, her character, Brandy Clark, reads in a magazine about the magic property of pineapple juice. That revelation leads the men she knows to guzzle the stuff to hilarious results.

It seems as though not every guy in the film understands why they're drinking pineapple juice, as Kevin Brennan's character tells Andy Samberg's that Brandy insisted on the drink because she is Mormon. We don't know if they'd be more or less intrigued if they knew the real reason.

Fast and Furious

Justin Lin might not be returning for "Fast and Furious 7," but he's signed off on the director he's happy to see at the movie's helm. It's being reported that "Insidious" director James Wan will sign a deal to helm the movie by the end of this week, and Lin has giving him a big endorsement.

"I’m extremely proud to be part of the 'Fast' franchise, it is an experience I will always treasure," Lin said in a statement to Deadline. "It’s time for me to move on to other things and I’m thrilled that Universal and Neal have selected James Wan to lead the franchise into its new chapter."

It seems our friends over at Next Movie have discovered the secret to Will Ferrell's brand of comedy: he yells a lot. They put together an epic super cut featuring all of Ferrell's yelling scenes in his movies, and it's absolutely hilarious.

From "Zoolander" to "Anchorman" to "Elf," Ferrell has certainly stretched out his vocal chords over the years. But he only done it to make us laugh, so it's no wonder he was chosen to receive the first-ever Comic Genius Award at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards. It doesn't seem like too much of a stretch to guess that there could be some yelling in his acceptance speech on Sunday as well.

Rush

The international trailer for Ron Howard's Formula 1 racing drama "Rush" shows that the movie is going to star much more than just Chris Hemsworth. This movie is going to put audience members right in the midst of what look like some of the most intense racing scenes to hit the big screen, and it looks like it's going to do so beautifully.

The newly released video, which can be found after the jump, focuses primarily on the rivalry between Hemsworth's James Hunt and Daniel Brühl's Niki Lauda, but it's the gorgeous cinematography that really captured our attention. It's clear that Howard wanted to make a movie about Formula 1 racing that made it feel like viewers are a part of that world. Trailers aren't always indicative of a film's final product, but this one certainly has us excited.

Elysium

We've known director Neil Blomkamp has been working on "Elysium," his follow-up to "District 9," for years now, but still know relatively little about the movie. It's due in theaters on August 9, and two new photos have been released that show us more than just Matt Damon running around in a funny suit — finally.

The images were published by San Paulo newspaper Illustrada and introduce fans to Wagner Moura and Alice Braga's characters for the first time. The paper also elaborates on who the characters they're playing are, which you can find out after the jump.

Benedict Cumberbatch

Guillermo del Toro already had us on board with his planned haunted house movie "Crimson Peak" when we learned Emma Stone and Charlie Hunnam joined the cast, but now he's upped the ante even higher. According to new reports, Benedict Cumberbatch has taken an undisclosed role in the upcoming movie.

Variety broke the news, and also reported that del Toro and Lucinda Coxen are still rewriting Matthew Robins and del Toro's original script. Little is known about the story of "Crimson Peak," but del Toro did describe it as a "very set-oriented classical but at the same time modern take on the ghost story" that would allow him to "play with the conventions of the genre I know and love, and at the same time subvert the old rules."

Great Gatsby

Here's the thing: we're totally obsessed with the new "The Great Gatsby" trailer. It doesn't matter that it's a little bit disjointed as it tries to showcase its newly announced and absolutely incredible soundtrack because the visual feast director Baz Luhrmann has provided absolutely makes up for it.

The trailer highlights the complicated relationship between Carey Mulligan's Daisy and Leonardo DiCaprio's Gatsby, but it's really only here to show off the movie's soundtrack. By watching the video, you can hear snippets of Beyonce and Andre 3000's cover of Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black," Lana Del Rey's song "Young and Beautiful" and Florence + The Machine's "Over The Love." Check out the trailer and the full track listing after the jump.

Oblivion

If you can't wait until April 19 to see "Oblivion," then the four new clips that have been released by Universal should be a good tease for you. They feature everything we've been dying to see in the movie: the Bubbleship, the Scavs and, of course, Tom Cruise.

The most interesting of the four clips is the second, which is when Cruise's Jack Harper sees Olga Kurylenko's character for the first time. As the third clip informs us, Jack has no memories from before his "mission" began, but he also for some reason recognizes the girl in the pod. Clearly there's a lot going on that he isn't clued in on.

Check out the four clips after the jump!

Liam Hemsworth

Liam Hemsworth is reportedly close to taking the lead role in Ricardo de Montreuil's new film, "The Raven." The movie is based on de Montreuil's short of the same name, and is being set up at Universal Pictures.

Deadline has the news and said Universal won't confirm their report. Still, Hemsworth is allegedly considering playing the main character in the science fiction film. It's unclear if his character would be the same as the one that is featured in de Montreuil's award-winning 2010 short of it he would play someone different.

Anchorman

Obviously the most exciting thing about "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" is the fact that Harrison Ford has come on board to play a "legendary newsman." But, according to him, he doesn't have a very significant role in the movie.

"It'd be easy enough to cut out. I don't think it's critical," he told Entertainment Tonight, adding that his experience on set was "bizarre." "They weren't all in the scene that I did," he said. "It was just what's his name [Will Ferrell] and the applesauce girl [Christina Applegate]." Yes, really, there's video to prove this went down.
