Bear with us for a second, guys. We just hallucinated that there was an impossibly cool statue of Darth Vader, holding his own helmet in introspection.
Oh God, it's real!
The statuette comes from the always impressive Sideshow Collectibles (via io9), and it's the latest in their "Star Wars Mythos" series of badass figures. On top of being simply a cool look at one of the most iconic characters of all time, the Vader "Mythos" statues allows you to remove the helmet and gaze upon the beauty of Sebastian Shaw.

After initially teasing us with "Fast & Furious 6" set photos, Universal Pictures is teasing us with official stillsfrom the movie. The latest features Paul Walker and Jordana Brewster as Brian and Mia, and they don't look to happy about whatever situation they're in.
"Tension is high with Brian and Mia. What do you think they have in store in #Fast6?" the official "Fast & Furious 6" Twitter account posted along with the picture.

It turns out we weren't the only one who picked up Frank Ocean's multi-layered movie references during last night's Grammy Awards. The folks over at MTV Style blog pointed out that Ocean dressed almost exactly like Luke Wilson's character from "The Royal Tenenbaums."
But the movie references don't end there. The song Ocean was performing whilst wearing his vintage get-up? "Forrest Gump." Mind blown.
Wait, there's more! Frank Ocean posted an Instagram photo earlier from the shoot for his video background. His Instagram account is called "FrancisTenenbaum." The rabbit hole just keeps on going and going.

It's that time of the year again, when we desperately wish we were still in that target age for all of the sweet, sweet toys of Toy Fair.
MTV Geek has been all up in Toy Fair from the word "go," and over the weekend, they found a whole bunch of cool, new stuff that we want badly despite the whole "age issue."
Check out all of our favorite movie-related picks from Toy Fair and MTV Geek.

Zombies were once people too, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that they occasionally get bored. And what does any group of friends do when they get bored? They play board games! YAY!
An original piece of artwork from Max Evry imagines what it would be like if two iconic Romero zombies met up with R from "Warm Bodies" and Ed from "Shaun of the Dead" and played a little "Life" in a completely unironic way.
In short, it would be awesome.
This year's most highly anticipated science-fiction action film just got a ringing endorsement from the director of last year's best science-fiction film action film, and that's a very good thing.
"Looper" director Rian Johnson was lucky enough (the jerk!) to check out an early screening of "Pacific Rim," Guillermo del Toro's monsters-versus-robots awesome-fest scheduled for release this summer. In one tweet sent out on Saturday, Johnson succinctly caused us even more excitement than we already had.
Read what he had to say after the jump!
With the right makeup and hair, Ashton Kutcher can look a lot like Steve Jobs — and he wants to make sure you don't forget it.
His new biopic about the Apple co-founder, "jOBS," recently made its debut at the Sundance Film Festival and will hit theaters on April 19. Lest you forget that a big draw of the movie is seeing Kutcher take on the Jobs role, the actor has uploaded a split screen image of himself as the late tech guru to ram the point home.
Since we didn't make it into Hall H during the "Elysium" presentation at Comic-Con, we've spent the last few months looking forward to something we essentially know nothing about. Yes, it's coming from Neill Blomkamp, the mastermind behind "District 9," and it's got a badass cast that includes Matt Damon, Jodi Foster, and Sharlto Copley, but that's about it.
Having felt the massive psychic shockwave from Comic-Con, we know that "Elysium" and its August release date are absolutely something to eagerly anticipate, but what else do we have to go on?
How about these pictures of Jodi Foster's hair (via Bleeding Cool) from the movie? Sure, why not? Foster—who is 50!—plays Secretary Rhodes, the embodiment of the class struggle at the heart of "Elysium," and while we're pumped about her cropped 'do, what's really has us intrigued is the futuristic sets and weapons chilling out in the background. Finally something!
Now, how about a trailer?
See all of the Jodie Foster pictures after the jump!
This is it. We mean it this time. We have reached the finals of MTV's ultimate competition to determine the most anticipated movie of 2013.
It comes down to two of YA's most popular series, "The Hunger Games" and "The Mortal Instruments." In terms of the Movie Brawl, "Catching Fire" is the returning combatant looking for revenge after a bitter defeat last year, and "City of Bones" is the young hot shot out to prove itself in the film world.
Considering how close the last round was, you'll want to start voting early and often for the finals, which you can do by clicking the image above. Also, to help gain support for your movie, click past the jump to find cover photos for Facebook and Twitter to spread the word!

Over the past few decades Sundance has expanded beyond a cozy little film festival to become one of the biggest parties of the year. Celebs! Music! Parties! Everyone from earnest artists to drink-toting socialites flock to Park City, Utah to take in all that Sundance has to offer.
With that rich history in mind, we social-archeologists dug back into the Sundance scene to find out what our favorite celebrities were doing way back when. Here is our collection of recently unearthed WTF moments — blame it on the booze or blame it on the early 2000’s...you decide.
Before he became the full on rage monster you see today, even the Hulk had his angsty phase. (2002)
Here’s Golden Globe-winning director Ben Affleck enjoying the festivities — totes sober. (2002)
In retrospect, Ben Affleck’s retro-transformation for "Argo" is a little more fashionable than his sixth N'Sync member look. But to be fair, who didn't want to be in N'Sync? (2000)
Speaking of N'Sync, Sundance was the location for the much forgotten scarf-assassination attempt on Lance Bass. (2002)
Someone please tell this girl that Sundance is in the middle of winter in Utah – and everybody knows tiger stripes don't provide warmth unless you fully button-up. (2001)
Paris, keep trying – but points for originality on trying out a shoe-scarf. (2001)
Scanning the room at an industry party - look, it's Jake Gyllenhaal playing PlayStation! Tip: "Crash Bandicoot" is a great Gyllenhaal icebreaker. (2001)
Judging by her face, I can only imagine the wrath Courtney brought down on the person who convinced her to try snowboarding. (2001)
