David O. Russell is bringing together the casts of his last two films, "The Fighter" and "Silver Linings Playbook," for his latest movie, "American Hustle," due out later this year, and considering the star power of previous movies, it spells one mean ensemble for the fact-based comedy.

"American Hustle" stars Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, and Amy Adams and tells the story of an eccentric FBI agent who gets dragged into the world of stolen art and con men. Hot off her Oscar win for playing Cooper's love interest in "Silver Linings Playbook," Lawrence is paired up again with him, playing his, as USA Today put it, his "loose cannon of a Long Island house wife" named Roselyn. Some set photos showed Lawrence with an 80s-tastic up 'do.

USA Today just published first-look photos from "American Hustle" featuring Cooper, Bale, and Adams. The film opens in limited release on December 13 and goes wide on December 25.

Last night, "Breaking Bad" held a premiere to celebrate the start of the series' final episodes, which debut on AMC on August 11. It was essentially the last hurrah for the gang that we've come to love over the course of five seasons, and appropriately, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul made an entrance worthy of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman.

As sad as we are to see "Breaking Bad" go, it's incredibly exciting knowing that we'll get an ending in a couple months, and seeing the cast so thrilled to celebrate the last episodes, it's hard not to get caught up in it too.

Entertainment Weekly unleashed their enormous San Diego Comic-Con preview upon the world last week, and hidden among the new images from "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" was this little gem from "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire."


As you'll no doubt recognize, this is the same ensemble that Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) donned for her high fashion spread, one of the very first images we saw from the much anticipate sequel.

"Catching Fire" will have a big presence at Comic-Con, which starts this Thursday, July 17. A Hall H panel is already on the books, and there have been vague promises made about "talent" making appearances to help promote the movie.

Whoever ends up showing up (please, JLaw, please, JLaw), MTV News will be bringing you all of the updates from Comic-Con starting this Wednesday, so stick with us for all the geeky goodness.

Yesterday, Tom Hanks, America's nicest actor, celebrated a birthday, but today we're seeing the first photo (via Time) from a movie where he plays the creator of some of the most beloved characters of all time, Walt Disney. The shot comes from "Saving Mr. Banks," a true-life tale of how the legend secured the screen rights to "Mary Poppins" from P.L. Travers, the author reluctant to see dearest creation ruined by Hollywood, played here by Emma Thompson.

It took all of 20 years for Disney to convince Travers to allow him to make a film version of "Mary Poppins," since she was so afraid of the film he would make, partly because up until that point, Disney was known only for animated features.

The script for "Saving Mr. Banks" by Kelly Marcel (the screenwriter of the upcoming "Fifty Shades of Grey" film) made the famed Black List—an annual list of the best unproduced scripts in Hollywood—and the movie itself is already a part of the early Oscar conversation, thanks to both Hanks and Thompson being awards vets.

"Saving Mr. Banks" will open in theaters on December 13, 2013.

The way Michael Bay has been releasing images of the new cars that will show up in "Transformers 4" you'd think that there aren't any actual humans in the movie, which is said to be the start of a new trilogy. The roll-out concluded yesterday with the reveal of another Bumblebee. Yes, there are two.

A few weeks ago, Bay released a photo of a retro Camaro with a badass black and yellow paint job, but the pictures of a Camaro concept car have us thinking that Bumblebee will once again jump from one car to another.

Videos from the set have given us some idea of the action we'll see when "Transformers 4" hits theaters next year, but we're still in the dark about which Autobots and Decepticons will be making appearances in the new installment.

Monsters University

Pixar has a few traditions they bring back for every film — aside from making us cry. The animation studio has hidden Easter eggs and references to their past movies in almost every one of their films.

With the release of "Monsters University" last week, Disney has now shared the secret with all of us on where we can find the hidden nods this time around.

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!


Michael Fassbender The Counselor

When Ridley Scott snatched up Cormac McCarthy's first feature-length screenplay essentially the instant people knew it existed, we knew that "The Counselor" was a project worth playing attention to. That was all before it started attracting talent like Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, and Penelope Cruz. This was definitely something that wasn't leaving our radar any time soon.

Now we have not only the trailer that dropped yesterday, but Entertainment Weekly just released two photos from "The Counselor" that do little else but prove that there are several good looking people in the movie. Still, this is one that we absolutely cannot wait to see.

Check out the trailer and two new photos from "The Counselor" after the jump!

Spring Breakers

The girls from the breakout hit "Spring Breakers" are here to remind you that not only is the Blu-ray and DVD of their movie coming out on July 9, but that this Sunday, June 16 is Father's Day. And these girls know how to make their dads proud.

In lead-up to both occasions, we've been given an exclusive look at some "Spring Breakers"-theme Father's Day GIFs that are sure to show your pops that you could have turned out a lot worse. Feel free to download and share!

Check them out after the jump!



UPDATE: As a helpful commenter pointed out, this is a fan made picture that combines the Autobots revealed so far.

After a series of announcements, we officially have a full team of Autobots for "Transformers 4." Director Michael Bay sent out this picture of the whole gang posing in a really epic way to close out the roster.


It looks like a solid team of robots in disguise, and this is before we even factor in Mark Wahlberg. Taking that all into consideration, "Transformers 4" is shaping up to be an interesting next step for the series.

"Transformers 4" will open in theaters on June 27, 2014.
