By our count: 80.

That's according to a supercut that just popped up over on Funny or Die (via The Playlist) brings together every question Ellen Page's Ariadne asks over the course of the dream jumping epic.

We get that Page is our stand-in in a movie that has a lot of concepts to explain for any of the story to make sense, but when you hear every one of her inquiries one after the other, you begin to see jump how complicated the story of "Inception" actually is.

The funny thing is that even all of these years later, after we've heard Ariadne ask all of these questions, people are still combing "Inception" for answers.

Despicable Me

By Rachel Samples

It's not often that you find yourself wanting to see a broad-shouldered, beak-nosed villain back on the big screen. This "bad" guy is of course, the easy-to-love Gru, voiced by Steve Carell. Gru and his minions took over the world box office in 2010 and are now back for more good versus evil in this highly anticipated sequel.

Recruited to be a spy for the Anti-Villain league by Lucy Wilde (voice by Kristen Wiig), Gru faces new love, an evil mastermind, and fatherhood for Agnes, Edith and Margo. If the idea of Gru wooing a woman doesn't appeal to you, here's ten other reasons why we can't wait for "Despicable Me 2" on July 3rd.

This weekend Sandra Bullock returns to the realm of crime-fighting comedy with "The Heat," her new film with Melissa McCarthy, but seeing the Oscar winner with a gun and a badge has us reminiscing about the movie that started it all, the gem that is "Miss Congeniality."

In the 13 years since the story of an uncover FBI agent in a beauty pageant opened in theaters, we've learned so much during our many rewatchings at sleep overs, and to commemorate our love, we've illustrated those lessons in GIFs.

FROM NEXT MOVIE

The technology behind action figures, especially those cast in the likenesses of A-list actors, have come a long way since "Star Wars" kicked off the merchandising state we now live in. Now we have 3-D scans of actors shrunken down to fit in the palm of your hand, but that always wasn't the case.

The folks over at Next Movie are serving up a reminder of just how far we've come with a new series of Photoshops that insert classic action figures in the posters of movies featuring the character. The result is a vaguely recognizable poster for "Star Wars" and a several other one sheets filled the plastic (sort of) likenesses of some of our most iconic characters.

Check out the rest of the action figures posters over at Next Movie!

"Catfish: The TV Show" debuts its second season tonight at 10 p.m. ET, and Nev and Max have been promising all sorts of firsts, like a couple who got engaged without ever meeting in person. While that's a mighty impressive feat, it's overshadowed by what went down this April around the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.

That's when Mark Wahlberg proved to be the greatest Catfisher of them all when he tricked MTV News' Josh Horowitz, Joe Manganiello, and Anne Kendrick into thinking that they were all dating. It was the first-ever triple Catfish, and the world was never the same again.

Before checking out the new episodes of "Catfish: The TV Show," which begin tonight on MTV at 10 p.m. ET / 9 p.m. CT, let Mark Wahlberg show you how it's done on "Celebrity Catfish."

Maddox
(source)

by Lauren Mandel

At the New York City premiere of "World War Z," Brad Pitt revealed that his son, Maddox Jolie-Pitt, will make his feature film debut alongside his dad in the new zombie horror film opening this weekend. In his cameo role, Maddox plays a very short-lived Zombie!

"He gets shot in the head," Pitt explained to reporters at E! News. "He gets shot multiple times... I don't know what that says about me as a parent."

With parents as well-versed in high intensity action movies as Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, it comes as no surprise that their eldest son is ready to take his first step into the Hollywood limelight. In fact, this story sounds very similar to that of power couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith's son, and current "After Earth" star, Jaden Smith. It turns out the two child stars have more in common than you'd think! Check out our list below!

Man of Steel

By Rachel Samples

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!

Star Wars

By Amelia Mularz

"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.
