If salmon fishing doesn't sound like your idea of a good time, then clearly you've never tried it with Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt in tow. The two actors star in "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen," the upcoming CBS Films drama based on the novel written by Paul Torday. "Salmon Fishing" centers on Dr. Fred Jones (McGregor), a scientist hired to introduce salmon fishing to the highlands of Yemen. In the following clip, Jones tells the alluring Harriet Chetwode-Talbot (Blunt) all about a new form of bait that takes its name from a beautiful source. Watch the clip below for more.
"Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" arrives in theaters on March 9, 2012.
It is neither luck nor royal favor that makes House Lannister prosperous. Just ask the unreasonably rich Tywin Lannister about the origins of his family—he'll be happy to tell you all about his roar.
Lannisters always pay their debts, of course, and so does the upcoming "Game of Thrones" season one Blu-ray set. In this exclusive featurette, you'll find one more reason to eagerly anticipate your return trip to Westeros with the upcoming home video release and subsequent season two premiere—namely, that this show plays host to so many fantastic families and charismatic characters, the Lannisters chief among them.
With the release of "Skyfall" only eight and a half months away, Sam Mendes and his team have been playing awful coy with the promotion of the latest James Bond film. Tomorrow Mendes will release his first videoblog about the project (thank you Peter Jackson for keeping this trend popular) and that will likely be the first time fans get the chance to see any footage from the upcoming flick. And it certainly has taken long enough.
Until then, though, we fans will have to make do with the latest behind-the-scene photo from the "Skyfall" set. In it, Mendes can be seen looking over Dame Judi Dench's shoulder as she analyzes something on her laptop. Well, at least it's slightly more informative than Daniel Craig walking around in a suit!
As a movie fan, there are few things I enjoy more than Guy Pearce movies and Luc Besson movies. So fuse the two together into one far-out space-set thriller, and you know I'm going to be on board.
That's why I'm pretty pumped to host this exclusive "Lockout" poster here on Movies Blog. It's got Guy Pearce. It's got Maggie Grace. It's got an awesome future gun riddling bullets into who-knows-what. In short, it's awesome. Check it out in full past the break!

Kate Upton seems to be popping up everywhere as of late, from the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue to the "Three Stooges" trailer. There's no getting around the fact that this blonde bombshell is a potential rising talent in the movie industry. With her recent stint in "Tower Heist" as Mr. Hightower's mistress, people all across the country have been practically begging to see more of the American model/actress.
Ms. Upton will, without a doubt, be cast in many of Hollywood's up and coming blockbusters because of her strikingly good looks and sense of humor. Why, she might even be the next Megan Fox! (But don't tell Megan Fox that.) Here's a list of movies that we think Kate Upton would be great in.
The MTV Movie Brawl 2012 has come to an end, and after an epic battle that clocked in with over three and a half million votes cast, only one film is still standing: Robert Pattinson's "Cosmopolis."
David Cronenberg's thriller about a limousine drive through Manhattan gone horribly wrong managed to topple incoming franchise "The Hunger Games," though not without a fight. Tributes gave it their all in the fight against "Cosmopolis," trading the top spot back-and-forth with Pattinson's latest all through the weekend. But early on Monday morning (January 23), "Cosmopolis" broke out with an insurmountable lead that fully clinched its place as the winner of the brawl for it all.
Although our beloved "Game of Thrones" didn't take home the top prize for Best Drama at the Golden Globes on Sunday, we can be very happy for the continued support and recognition of Best Supporting Actor winner Peter Dinklage. People should get used to seeing him win awards actually, because as long as the series continues, he will very likely be blowing our minds with his brilliant portrayal of Tyrion Lannister.
MTV News was lucky enough to attend HBO's fancy Globes after-party Sunday night at which we encountered Dinklage and his bright, shiny new award. After offering our sincerest congratulations, we asked him how much battle action Tyrion will be seeing next season, particularly with regard to that little event at Blackwater...
"I think there were some fans that were disappointed that the end of the first season there wasn't a battle. We do not disappoint this season," Dinklage promised. "I think my character steps to the front in terms of fighting."
The MTV Movie Brawl 2012 is officially on!
After the initial play-in and wild card rounds, 16 films have been selected to compete in a series of head-to-head single elimination matches in our March Madness-style bracket. In the end, only one of these flicks can be crowned the can't-miss movie of the year, and the choice is entirely up to YOU.
After first-round voting closed on Sunday afternoon, the MTV Movies selection team locked itself in a room with a lot of food, a limited amount of oxygen, and one all-important goal: seed this bracket.
To that end, we weighed a number of criteria to select each film's ranking. We noted first-round voting totals, overall buzz, potential box-office performance and a slew of other benchmarks. The choices were tough. Some arguments were heated. But ultimately we walked away with a 16-team bracket we're proud to offer up for the inaugural MTV Movie Brawl.
But hey, don't agree with us? Show us we got it wrong by voting for your favorite can't-miss flick of the year. After all, YOU are in charge! Just click the bracket above and START BRAWLING!!!
