Unfortunately for you squeamish readers, the same can't be said for the movie. Director Lars Von Trier has been very outspoken about his art-horror film "Antichrist," going as far as declaring himself "the world's greatest director" at Cannes this year. It's a slow, simmering build to the violence, extremely graphic violence, making it all the more shocking when the plot takes its nasty turn.

The story follows an unnamed husband and wife -- Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg -- who hide away in their remote cabin in the woods shortly after the accidental death of their toddler. He, as Dafoe's character is called, is a psychoanalyst who attempts to help his wife get through the difficult moment by forcing her to face her fears. Things get progressively creepier until a late-game explosion of violence brings things to a close with a brief, agonizing roller coaster ride. In the exclusive image after the jump, you can see Von Trier standing with a smiling Gainsbourg, an expression she doesn't wear much in the film. Read More...

Jason Reitman's "Juno" follow-up, "Up in the Air," will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival next month. As a fan of the Oscar-winning pregnant teen dramedy and of the Reitman family in general, I'm definitely looking forward to checking it out. Star George Clooney is another selling point for what sounds an awful lot like an offbeat love story.

Clooney stars as Ryan Bingham, a dreaded corporate axeman who very much enjoys his jetsetting, constantly-on-the-move lifestyle. Just shy of earning his long-awaited 10 millionth frequent flyer mile, Bingham's single lifestyle is disrupted after he meets a fellow frequent flyer (Anna Kendrick) whom he clicks with. At least I think that's what it's about. It doesn't really matter; Clooney playing a Reitman-penned character is all that's necessary to sell me on this one. Read More...

I feel like a hole in the time-space continuum ought to open around this image. You've got Jason Bourne (ie Matt Damon), "Quantum Leap" protag Sam Beckett (Scott Bakula) and "The Soup" host Joel McHale looking very serious over their diner food in Steven Soderbergh's "The Informant!," based on the 2000 book by Kurt Eichenwald.

In the movie, Damon stars as Mark Whitacre, former company man VP-turned-corporate corruption snitch. Whitacre worked for years to gather evidence of price-fixing against ADM, an Illinois-based agri-business. He remains the highest-ranking executive officer to ever blow the whistle on an employer's corrupt practices. Hit the jump for the intrigue. Read More...

Saoirse RonanI'd like to compare director Peter Jackson's adaptation of the Alice Sebold novel "The Lovely Bones" to the Robin Williams-starring 1998 flick "What Dreams May Come." Only I get the distinct whiff of awesome from Jackson's effort where "What Dreams" smacked more of pop psych mediocrity. Plus, "Bones" totally has the better title.

I still haven't read the book, but the more I see images like the exclusive one posted after the break the more I consider adding it to my Kindle queue. The moon is the sky is definitely a clock of some sort and the gazebo in the middle of the lake... I wonder what's up with that. For those who are in the dark, "Bones" follows 14 year old Susie Salmon (Saoirse Ronan) through her own, personal heaven as she watches her friends and loved ones deal with the grief of losing her. Hit the jump to peep our exclusive look at the movie, which hits theaters on December 11. Read More...

"Ninja Assassin" is looking badass, no question. Aside from sporting one of the greatest movie titles to come along this year -- seriously, it sounds like an awesome kung-fu exploitation flick imported from the '70s -- it also features the considerable talents of Asian pop star Rain, as the titular martial artist, and "V for Vendetta" James McTeigue. In a recent interview with MTV, McTeigue had nothing but positive things to say about his star.

To hear more about the movie's plot and some words from Rain himself, head over to MTV.com for Eric Ditzian's Fall Preview report on "Ninja Assassin." Also, hit the jump to peek at an EXCLUSIVE photo. Of what? Rain being a badass, 'natch. Read More...

Chicks on roller skates. That's how I've chosen to sell "Whip It" to you male readers. Chicks. On. Roller skates. They're kickass ladies too, the lot of them. Ellen Page, Kristen Wiig, Drew Barrymore, Juliette Lewis, Zoe Bell, Ari Graynor, Alia Shawkat... like I said, kickass ladies. But then, that's what happens when you make a movie about an all-girl roller derby team.

I'm not entirely clear on the plot, but I do know a little something about the setup. Page stars as Bliss, a young Texan who rebels by joining a roller derby league after she grows tired of her mother (Marcia Guy Harden) pushing her to participate in beauty pageants. The script comes from Shauna Cross, adapted from her book "Derby Girl," and the movie is directed by Drew Barrymore, her feature debut. Hit the jump for the full poster. Read More...

In the below exclusive clip from "Zombieland," Jesse Eisenberg lives out the city bachelor's dream scenario when his character's hot neighbor shows up, frightened and in need of comfort. If only he knew what was coming. Hot Neighbor describes how a homeless person chased and tried to bite her. We all know this is not true, well... because the freakin' movie's called "Zombieland." We also know that Hot Neighbor is not long for this world... well... because she's called Hot Neighbor. Enjoy.

Last week I ran excerpts from Larry Carroll's interview with "American Pie" director Paul Weitz, who is currently wrapping up work on his next project, "Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant." Weitz has a brother who knows a little something about vampires too, first name Chris. Maybe you've heard of him. He's wrapping up work right now too, on the soon-to-release "Twilight" follow-up, "New Moon."

When MTV's Josh Horowitz sat down with Chris at San Diego Comic-Con a few weeks ago, he had to mine for additional details on Weitz's treatment of Edward Cullen in the sequel. See, Edward doesn't factor very heavily into "New Moon," but Robert Pattinson has become something of a superstar. So how, specifically, will Weitz feature his top talent as a star in the sequel when he isn't really supposed to be there for much of it?
