"This Is The End" is shaping up to be one of the most insane movies of 2013, and also one of the ones we're most excited for. The cast of the film tease what craziness lie in wait for unsuspecting viewers in a new featurette for the movie.
"It's really a movie about the group dynamic between friends," Seth Rogen said. "But what it's really about is the end of the world happens and a bunch of friends barricade themselves in a house together, and then all their problems kind of come to the surface."
We are now outrageously close to the premiere of a whole new season of "Arrested Development" on Netflix. As you prepare to binge watch all 15 episodes in one sitting, more sneak peeks have popped up online as the stars promote the new episodes.
Portia De Rossi stopped by Jimmy Fallon last night to talk about "Arrested Development" and share a clip from the new season it. In it, we see Ed Helms return as the real estate agent who Lindsay tried to seduce in the show's original run. Based on this clip and the preview we saw earlier in the week, thing are looking good for the Bluths.
The new season of "Arrested Development" goes live on Netflix on May 26.
Like most summer tentpole movies, the promotional material for "After Earth," the upcoming sci-fi adventure starring the father-son duo of Will and Jaden Smith, has focused almost squarely on the action elements of the film. Essentially, it's been a lot of space ship crashes and Jaden Smith running through the jungle away from highly evolved human killers.
While director M. Night Shyamalan's hot streak is more than a decade in the rear-view mirror, there was a time when he excelled at putting quieter moments on the screen, in between shocking revelations. In the first clip from "After Earth," we get such a moment that drives home the stakes of the film.
Jaden's character Kitai Raige must retrieve a homing beacon from the tail end of their crashed ship, since it appears that his father, the perfectly name Cypher Raige, is unable to.
International man of mystery boxes J.J. Abrams stopped by "The Daily Show" to have a little chat with Jedi hopeful Jon Stewart last night, and the late night host was able to pry some actual information from the secretive director.
The two geeked out over both "Star Trek" and "Star Wars" during the two parts of an extended interview, and during the most interesting part of the segment, Abrams shared his perspective on how the two series differed. "'Star Trek' was overtly an allegory of today, where 'Star Wars' always felt like more of an epic. It didn't even feel like science fiction to me, which sounds crazy, but 'Star Wars' never felt like a sci-fi thing, where 'Star Trek' did," he said. "We tried to make a 'Star Trek' movie that doesn't suffer from—. The original show was static because they couldn't afford to go anywhere or do anything. We had a slightly larger budget."
From the sounds of it, Abrams views the two properties as inherently different, so this should come as welcome news to those who feared that there would be too much overlap between the diametrically opposed franchises and fan bases.

There are two things you should know about "The Kings of Summer," if you haven't already heard of it. First, back when it was called "Toy's House" at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, it was a huge crowd pleaser and one of the favorites of Park City.
Second, it stars some serious comedy talent that you might know from NBC's Thursday night line-up, including the awesome husband-wife duo of Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally from "Parks and Recreation" and Alison Brie from "Community."
In this exclusive clip from the film, which opens in theaters on May 31, Offerman and Brie play a father and daughter, who get some Chinese take-out. Much to the chagrin of Offerman's character, the wontons that come with the food are too big to eat, leading to a confrontation with the delivery man.
The preview gives you a quick look at the brand of humor working here and a better idea of why "The Kings of Summer" won over so many audience members at Sundance.
When it was released last year, many people didn't know what to make of "Cloud Atlas," the complex, layered film from the Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer. It was too big, too odd for most mainstream audiences, but it wowed such a big portion of the critics that it seemed destined for a long life beyond its theatrical run.
Now that "Cloud Atlas" is coming to Blu-ray and DVD, the film will hopefully be able to find a bigger audience, that will be able to dive into like it needs to be.
The disc hits shelves on May 14, but we have an exclusive look at one of the behind-the-scenes featurettes. You can check out the clip in the player above!
"Now You See Me" has looked like a roller coaster ride of a film ever since the first trailer was released, and everything we've seen about the movie since then has reinforced that point. Now Summit Entertainment has revealed the first four minutes of the movie (okay, it's actually just the first three minutes and 40 seconds) to serve as an introduction to its four central characters.
Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco and Isla Fisher serve as a group of world-famous magicians who team up to pull off a pretty ridiculous heist in "Now You See Me." Here we are introduced to them individually to see how they each pull off their own brand of magic. Also, did anyone else pick out the seven of diamonds from that deck of card? Eisenberg's character is clearly very good at what he does, though we're a bit concerned about the fate of Fisher's.
Last night during "MTV First: Star Trek Into Darkness," we gave you an exclusive sneak peek at the upcoming sci-fi adventure. If you weren't able to catch the clip when it premiered on MTV or you just want to experience the thrilling preview all over again, you can watch it now in the player below.
The clip comes from the film's action-packed opening sequences, where the crew of the Enterprise must descend into a ready-to-erupt volcano in order to save a planet's population.
When you're done checking out the clip, make sure to watch our entire 30-minute interview with J.J. Abrams, Chris Pine, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zoe Saldana, and Zachary Quinto, during which they do their best impressions of each other and Quinto talks about the perils of his volcano suit.
"Star Trek Into Darkness" opens in theaters on May 16.
Alexander Skarsgård is no stranger to talented co-stars, having shared screen time with Liam Neeson, Ellen Page and even dad Stellan Skarsgård, but none was quite so adorable as 7-year-old Onata Aprile, whom the actor stars alongside in the drama "What Maisie Knew."
The film, based on the novel by Henry James, tells the story of a young girl who's caught in the middle of her parents' messy divorce and even messier life after. She eventually finds an unexpected father figure in her timid stepfather Lincoln, played convincingly by Skarsgård. In fact, the pair's chemistry and admiration for one another is so palpable, people just can't quit talking about it. Including Skarsgård, who told MTV News his young co-star was the main selling point of the project.
"Working with Onata was pretty amazing," he said. "Looking back, that's what I take from it. I had so much fun working with Onata."
Aprile wasn't in place when Skarsgård signed on for the role, so it was the strength of the narrative and directors Scott McGehee and David Siegel that originally lured him in.
