FROM NEXT MOVIE

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut, "Don Jon," deals heavily with porn and his character's addiction to it. To demonstrate Don Jon's obsession, Gordon-Levitt incorporates a lot of carefully edited porn clips into the movie and makes a broader comment on how false perceptions of sex and love from media like porn and romantic comedies can ruin real-life relationships.

Since Don Jon fashions himself an expert on porn, the folks over at Next Movie decided to get their own expert on the industry, star Allie Haze, to weigh in with her opinion on the movie.

Haze is pretty familiar with porn, so a positive review from her for a movie about porn seems like something that a first-time director like JGL would really appreciate. We wouldn't be surprised if Haze's quotes end up on the DVD cover someday.

"Don Jon" opens in theaters on Friday.

"Gravity" is just a little more than a week away from blowing the world's collective mind, so if you aren't already looking forward to the new masterpiece from Alfonso Cuaron, you better start now. Soon it won't be as cool to love "Gravity" because everyone will already be talking about it, so get on it!

A new featurette from AMC Theatres does a good job at previewing the movie without give too much away, but if you're totally spoiler-phobic, it's best to stay away from pretty much any promotional material for "Gravity." You should just find your nearest IMAX screen and see it the day that it opens.

One of the dozen or so revolutionary things that "Gravity" does is find an actual purpose for 3-D. It's not overdone. When Cuaron does use it, he does so in a meaningful way that communicates space. A wrench will fly just out of someone's grasp or space debris will cloud their area. It's enough to make you forget how much you hate 3-D.

"Gravity" opens on October 4.

As evidence by the two set photos from last week, production has started on "Fast and Furious 7," and we're just about as excited as Vin Diesel. And Vin Diesel is very, very excited.

Universal Studios posted this video of Diesel from the Atlanta set on the very first day of filming "Fast and Furious 7," which, from what new series director James Wan has stated, will take on the tone of a gritty '70s revenge thriller.

It's hard not to love John Green. The author of "The Fault In Our Stars" is also an incredibly popular internet personality, and he hosts — among many, many other things — a weekly video series over at mentalfloss that is packed with fascinating info.

We've enjoyed pretty much every mentalfloss video thus far, but the latest one is right up our alley.

In the new episode, Green tells of 55 movies that, for whatever reason, went unfinished. Some of the stalled projects have become well-known over the years, like Nic Cage's Superman flick, but most are new to us.

Check it out in the video above!

Aside from giving us a wonderfully bizarre slice of life, Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring" literally took us into Paris Hilton's closet.

No, seriously, that was her actual closet.

In this exclusive featurette from the Blu-ray and DVD, which are out in store now, Coppola recalls what it was like working with Hilton to recreate the multiple burglaries that took place in her decked out shoe palace.

Watch the clip above, and if you want to see more from the disc, check out "The Bling Ring" on Blu-ray and DVD now.

"How I Live Now," a film that just premiered at TIFF starring Saoirse Ronan, may be about a third world war breaking out, but it's a love story at its heart. As a 19-year-old actress, Ronan is finding herself in more and more adult situations on screen, and "How I Live Now" was the actress' first experience filming a sex scene.

When MTV News' Josh Horowitz sat down with Ronan at TIFF, she recalled what it was like to go through a scene like that for the first time.

"I actually wasn't nervous about it," Ronan said. "It was always written in the script, and there needed to be a sex scene in this film. They needed to consummate their love, I think, in order for us to really feel the heartbreak when they're separated because obviously, it becomes a lot more intense after."

It's a geek rivalry that has gone back generations. "Star Wars" or "Star Trek"? Even in this day and age, the question can still divide a crowd, even one a seemingly one-sided as the folks that showed up to the "Star Trek Into Darkness" Blu-ray event.

MTV News headed out to the red carpet to see which franchise would come out on top when pitted against each other. Cast members from "Star Trek Into Darkness" get to decide who would come out on top in a fight. Ewoks or Klingons? Vader of Khan?

Watch the video above to see who is victorious, and catch "Star Trek Into Darkness" on Blu-ray and DVD now.

As we get closer and closer to the finale of "Breaking Bad," more and more people are paying homage to the series that has entertained us for five unbelievably tense seasons.

Last night on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," the talk show host delivered his respectful and accurate parody of the series, stepping into the shoes of Walter White.

The premise of the 12-minute parody is that Fallon only has six months to live... as the host of "Late Night" before he moves over to "The Tonight Show." To make the most of his remaining months, he begins to sell his own higher grade of jokes the desperate junkies.

The video is full of surprises and hilarious cameos and is definitely worth checking out for any diehard "Breaking Bad" fan.
