Today's Daily TwitPic really comes from a tweet by "Toy Story 3" director Lee Unkrich, but the glasses Michael Cera is wearing flat out steal the show.

I can only assume the picture was taken at last week's "Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World" premiere, director Edgar Wright's (he's on the right in the twitpic below) adaptation of the just-completed graphic novel series by Bryan Lee O'Malley, or @radiomaru on Twitter. Unkrich seems mighty pleased to be hanging with Cera and Wright. Really, who can blame him? Wouldn't you want to hang with someone wearing red-tinted glasses with heart-shaped frames? Yeah, I thought so. Read More...

It was only a matter of time. Shooting for "Scream 4" is well underway now. Even the tightest, most well-maintained ship is going to spring a leak or two on occasion. Who knew that today's particular leak would come from the director himself, legendary horror-smith Wes Craven?

In today's Daily TwitPic we get a look at "Scream 4"'s ghostface killer. Not to be confused with Wu-Tang emcee Ghostface Killah. Though for all we know, it could be the Wu rapper beneath that mask. What a twist that would be, eh? Our heroes, after surviving numerous attempts on their lives, whip off the ghostface killer's mask to reveal... Ghostface Killah!!! Ahhhh!!! Killa bees on the swarm!!! Hit the jump to have precisely zero questions answered. Read More...

Soon, very soon now, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger will be leaving office. He won't be able to run again either, thanks to term limits. And since a run for the White House is out of the question for the non-U.S. born politician, many believe that good, old Ahnuld will once again pursue the work that he will always be best-known for: acting.

He's certainly been leaning in that direction. He did a couple of cameos during his first days in office, in the (underrated!) Dwayne Johnson action/comedy "The Rundown" and the Jackie Chan-starring remake of "Around the World in 80 Days." More recently he lent his likeness to "Terminator Salvation," an '80s-era digital recreation of his character from "The Terminator." And this summer he has a full-blown scene in "The Expendables," with Bruce Willis and Sylvester Stallone.

The latest hint that Ahnuld will soon return to the big screen comes in the form of a photo op, today's Daily TwitPic. Schwarzenegger eased himself behind the handlebars of the same motorcycle that he rode in "The Terminator," part of a Reagan Library exhibition. He doesn't look quite as badass anymore, but a leather jacket and sunglasses would fix that right up. Read More...

"Sucker Punch" director Zack Snyder has joined Twitter. I wonder if he's really ready for the fanperson squees that await him with each new trailer release. He can't be. No one is.

Snyder's Twitter timing was fortuitous, as his daughter recently celebrated her birthday and she had one helluva cake to celebrate with. A cake that we're preserving for posterity in today's Daily TwitPic. You've got Yoda, ancient Jedi Master of the "Star Wars" series, with lightsaber in hand riding on the back of a unicorn. The only thing crazier than that would be Chewbacca riding a giant squirrel and fighting Nazis... but that would never happen, right?

The Yoda-corn cake is a sight to behold. Hit the jump to see it for yourself. Read More...


If events like San Diego Comic-Con hold no interest for you, you can be forgiven for not knowing what "cosplay" is. SDCC and its ilk tends to bring a diverse crowd, including the hardcore franchise and genre fans who take their enthusiasm far enough that they dress up as their favorite characters. This is cosplay, short for "costume play." Go to something like SDCC and you'll see it everywhere. Or you could just check out our gallery.

And so we come to the lovely and talented Felicia Day, star of the web comedy series "The Guild." Day was of course in attendance at Comic-Con last week; that's entirely her scene. While she was wandering around the show floor she came across the group you'll find her posed for a photo op with after the jump. "Mass Effect" is a popular sci-fi video game for Xbox 360 and PC; the folks in that picture are dressed as characters from the game. Those are some seriously excellent costumes too-- check it out for yourself after the jump. Read More...

San Diego Comic-Con ended yesterday, thus ending the tidal wave of news that entertainment reporters all over will now spend the next week (or more) sorting through. Other than an isolated violent outburst, all reports point to a strong show overall. The Avengers assembled, the world of "Tron Legacy" was seen in greater detail and new looks at "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" delighted the masses.

We've got a relatively quiet day here in the MTV Newsroom while the Movies team makes their way back from San Diego to New York. With hours of tape captured from the event also enroute with them, expect a lot of recap today. I figured we'd start of with a couple of fun looks at SDCC, compliments of "The State" vet David Wain, who is being held at blasterpoint by a pair of Imperial Stormtroopers, and "Super" writer/director James Gunn, who really enjoyed Disney's "Tron Legacy" party. Stay tuned for more from SDCC throughout the day. Read More...

An image like the one you'll find after the jump could only have come from the halls of San Diego Comic-Con. Right? Today's Daily TwitPic features "Boondock Saints" star Sean Patrick Flanery in what appear to be his final moments. A pair of Spartan super-soldiers, from the "Halo" video game universe, have the actor held at gunpoint for reasons that aren't made clear. Maybe that had issues with "Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day"?

The MTV team on the ground in San Diego will be keeping an eye out for Flanery today as they continue our ongoing coverage of Comic-Con's biggest panels and most sought-after interviews. You'll of course be able to see some of it later today when the second of our three MTV/MySpace-sponsored livestreams gets underway at 3pm ET. There's still time to send along your questions; just tweet them to MTV Movies managing editor @JoshuaHorowitz. Hit the jump to take a peep at Flanery's final moments. Read More...

I'm bucking this system for this morning's Daily TwitPic. Sure, I could bring you yesterday's Twitter-Wood selection. But wouldn't you rather get an early glimpse of "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides"?

If you don't want it, tough. That's what I've got for you. Mega producer Jerry Bruckheimer took to Twitter yesterday with a new pic from the "On Stranger Tides" set. It's a pretty cool image too, Jack Sparrow's (Johnny Depp) silhouette, sword extended, in front of choppy ocean waters. I'm incredibly curious about this sequel; the first "Pirates" flick was strong, but the two follow-ups definitely faltered a bit. The cast that's gathered around this fourth one is enough to keep me interested though. We'll find out how it all comes together next summer. For now, enjoy the pic. Read More...

I'm pretty sure that Twitter-Wood writer Brian Warmoth picked out today's Daily TwitPic knowing I'd be all over it. Thanks, Brian!

In the "Star Wars" prequel trilogy, a character was introduced named Aurra Sing, the white-skinned, topknot-wearing bounty hunter contracted to take out Queen Amidala. She doesn't have a whole lot of screen time, but like Boba Fett in the Original Trilogy, Sing is a memorable figure, one who has only grown more complex since her appearance on "Star Wars: The Clone Wars," as voiced by Jaime King. She's also attracted a large group of fans, one of whom is Photoshop-savvy enough to have inserted her into a scene from the first "Star Wars" movie. Check it out after the jump! Read More...

"Guns, Girls & Gambling" is an upcoming movie that we've been hearing a bit about in recent weeks. And why not? It stars Gary Oldman, Christian Slater and Dane Cook. "True Blood" shapeshifter Sam Trammell was also confirmed for a role last week. The story is all about an American Indian artifact that is stolen during a poker game. Those are all some solid ingredients right there.

The movie was announced in mid-June and it's already shooting in Utah, as today's slightly bloody Daily TwitPic illustrates. Cook tweeted last week from the set. And you know what? It looks freakin' hot in that desert. There's no Oldman in the pic, either because he's too cool to pose or the pics of him are too cool to post. I can't decode Cook's tweet: "Utah. Slater & I after gunsablazin' in the desert. #GunsGirls&Gambling movie. Oldman pix 2 cool" Read More...
