On June 14th, the world will be saved...again. "Man of Steel," the latest superhero film by Zack Snyder, director of "Watchmen" and "300," features a new face to star as Superman: 30-year-old Henry Cavill. With slicked-back hair and thick rimmed glasses, you might not even realize he is Superman, or better yet, British.
Along with being made of steel, Cavill is best known as being one of the sexiest Brits alive. He is the first British actor to score the coveted role of Superman, the ultimate American hero. If a Brit can make it as an American hero, which American actors and actresses would make the cut as British heroes?
We've decided to cast some familiar Americans as British hero roles, along with the villains he or she would face. Check out our picks after the jump!

"Dahling, don't forget the opera glasses, and do put on a tie. If we're going to watch Will Smith battle zombie ex-presidents for control of the White House, we need to look quite fetching."
This is the future, according to George Lucas. No, not a zombie apocalypse led by Herbert Hoover and Richard Nixon (though we'd love to see what that'd look like), but a future where going to the movies will be comparable to going to the opera or a Broadway show. It's a dark, dark future where a ticket to the big summer blockbuster could cost you $50, $100, maybe even $150.
Adam Sandler was kind enough to sit down with MTV News to talk about the first sequel in his entire career, "Grown Ups 2." But the idea of Sandler returning to a character he previously played got us thinking.
What are the other classic Sandler characters up to now? Did Happy Gilmore continue his golf career? Did Billy Madison ever solve the shampoo versus conditioner conundrum?
Sandler filled us in on what his previous characters are up to now, and you can read all about it after the jump!

America's favorite meme (sorry, "McKayla is Not Impressed") just inked a movie deal. Grumpy Cat, the perpetually pissed-off feline, will star in an upcoming family comedy flick. The deal was orchestrated by agent Ben Lashes, who also reps Keyboard Cat and Nyan Cat (clearly this guy's got a lot of pull).
Talk of a Grumpy Cat movie comes on the heels of a book deal and a beverage line — reportedly she's primed to release cat-inspired coffee drinks (not even making that up).
With all the of hubbub surrounding this kitty, we thought we'd offer up a little advice to help her keep things real when she heads off to Hollywood. Grumpy Cat, if you can read this through your misery, take note:

The "Fast & Furious" series features some of the most powerful cars to ever hit the street, but what if you took away those rides? Would the franchise still pack the punch that has been entertaining fans for 12 years?
The folks over at Next Movie have done us all the favor of seeing what the crew from "Fast & Furious 6" would look like if you put them into children's toy cars. The results might surprise you.

For the past few years, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has made a hobby of joining a movie franchise already in progress and making it way better. "The Mummy Returns" may have been a rocky start to The Rock's movie saving, but the power of "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island," "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," and the "Fast & Furious" series cannot be denied.
If you needed any further proof of The Rock's ability to instantly improve any movie, the folks over at Next Movie have edited him into classic movies just to make that point. Now you can see the former professional wrestler in films like "E.T.," "Casablanca," and, of course, "The Rock."

With the premiere of "Part III" in theaters tomorrow, the epic saga of "The Hangover" will come to a close. The comedy franchise launched the careers of Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis and countless in-jokes about Wolfpacks and questions about why they're called ruffies.
The "Hangover" movies have also inspired their fair share of spoof videos, including this latest one from the folks over at Next Movie. What would happen if a group of toddlers had one wild night and did whatever they wanted? The answer is pretty adorable.

"The Hangover Part III" opens in theaters tomorrow, May 23.

"Star Trek Into Darkness" is out in theaters, and if you haven't seen it already, go do so. (It's a ton of fun and should be seen on as big a screen as possible.)
But before you do that, if you need a little more convincing, the folks over at Next Movie got Homeboy Sandman, a New York City-based rapper, to review "Star Trek Into Darkness" for them.
Check out the video above and enjoy some "Star Trek."
Last night on "Jimmy Kimmel Live, J.J. Abrams admitted that he and Michael Arndt have hit a bit of a wall while writing "Star Wars: Episode VII." The revelation of writer's block led Jimmy to suggest that Abrams listen to some helpful members of the audience that had ideas for what should be included in the next "Star Wars."
The general consensus was that Chewbacca and Princess Leia need to get it on, and if they aren't getting it on, the movie should only consist of Lando making sweet love in the galaxy.
The suggestions, of course, came from fanboys planted in the audience, Billy Dee Williams, and a red-faced William Shatner. Here's to hoping that Abrams actually listens to the fans and gives them what they want.

One of the highlights of the new "Star Trek" films has been Zachary Quinto's performance as Spock, despite having to follow the incomparable Leonard Nemoy. Quinto understands how to play the character both seriously and for laughs in a way that is unexpected and, frankly, delightful.
During "MTV First: Star Trek Into Darkness," MTV News' Josh Horowitz put a challenge to Quinto, to see if he could turn any phrase, no matter how un-Spock-like, into something that sounds like the most famous Vulcan.
Well, Quinto took on the challenge with great enthusiasm and managed to turn some ridiculous sentences into classy Spock talk. Check it out in the video above!
