White House

When your pitch for a movie is "Die Hard in the White House," it communicates pretty well what we can expect. There's going to be a lone, witty hero in a tank top who has to beat the odds to save the day, expect this time the president will be involved.

That's what we've seen so far from "White House Down," a new action movie starring Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum as John McClane John Cale. (Yes, you can spell "John Cale" but rearranging letters and deleting three of them from "John McClane.")

But now a new four-minute trailer is showing us just how "Die Hard"-y "White House Down" will be. Hint: There's a talkative, eccentric computer wiz working for the terrorists. Check it out after the jump!

Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson are reteaming after crashing a couple weddings back in 2005 for "The Internship," a workplace comedy that casts them as interns at the tech giant Google. The duo is up to their usual shenanigans, but as they told MTV News' Amy Wilkinson at Google HQ, there's also a heart to the story that makes it important right now.

"The movie is really about what's going on now," Vaughn said. "A lot of young people who are entering the workforce — there's a lot of fear about what kind of jobs are out there, and people who are older are losing jobs. So I think the movie really takes people who are put in a position that feels fearful or things have gone against them, that they're willing to kind of humble themselves and not give up on a dream and try to believe in themselves even when things present themselves not to be so easy. And I think that's something that all of us can really relate to."

"The Internship" opens in theaters today.

Hopefully by now you've come to terms with what went down this past Sunday on "Game of Thrones," and not to throw salt in your open wounds, but George R. R. Martin, the sadistic man behind your sadness, went on "Conan" to laugh at you.

Ok, so it wasn't that harsh of him, but you can definitely tell that he gets a kick out of this. Can you blame him though? "A Storm of Swords," the book which serves as the basis for the third season of the show, did come out in 2000. Remember that year? It was a while ago.

There are a lot of pressures that come with hosting an award show. You could do something embarrassing on stage like flub a line, forget someone's name, or drop a trophy. Sometimes that pressure is so great that you can lose your grip on reality and need some help to pull it all back together.

In this leaked footage from a therapy session, Jason Aldean seeks some counseling from his CMT Awards co-host Kristen Bell, who has gathered a rogues gallery of celebrities and country stars to help him through the pressure.

Check out the footage in the player above.

The CMT Awards will air tonight at 8 p.m. ET/PT (7 Central) on CMT, live from Nashville's Bridgestone Arena, with performances from Hunter Hayes and others.

A new featurette from the set of "Pacific Rim," Guillermo del Toro's massive monster movie that is also this summer's best robot movie, takes us literally inside the heads of those battle machines to see how they brought the fights to life.

(via Yahoo! Movie)

Del Toro wanted to the action inside the head of the enormous jaegers to feel authentic and that meant helping his actors deliver believable performances, despite the fantastical circumstances of the story. "Helping" may not be the best word to use, because what del Toro ended up doing was strapping his actors into heavy machinery that would force them to strain in order to move their limbs.

The results was a more convincing monster and robot fight, which pretty much speaks for itself.

"Pacific Rim" opens on July 12.

Zach Galifianakis' character in "The Hangover Part III," Alan, eulogizes his father at beginning of the movie with a stirring rendition of "Ave Maria," and it got us thinking. In the unfortunate circumstance that Galifianakis had to use his angelic voice to send off either of his co-stars, Bradley Cooper or Ed Helms, we wondered what songs would the comedian sing in their memory... so we asked him.

Like Helms, we expected Galifianakis to take a less serious route. "The Office" star assumed he would say the theme from "Mr. Ed," but Galifianakis went with the Bruce Springsteen classic "Born in the U.S.A."

Imagine a world where crime and unemployment are nonexistent because, for one night a year, all criminal activity is legal. Emergency services are suspended for this 12-hour period so that the whole country can regulate itself without fear of punishment. Take that premise, set it up as a home invasion thriller with stars Ethan Hawke and "Game of Thrones" star Lena Headey as a loving couple under attack, and you have "The Purge." (Think "Battle Royale" meets "Panic Room.")

Ethan Hawke plays James Sandin, a man who has made a small fortune selling home safety systems to residents in his gated, upper-class community. The story kicks off when their young son, Charlie, saves a black homeless man from a group of armed and masked intruders wearing prep school uniforms. The group descends on the house, demanding the Sandins return the man they are rightfully allowed to hunt or risk being hunted themselves. While we won't spoil the film, the film deals with both issues of class and race while also showcasing violent scenes involving young children.

FROM NEXT MOVIE

For the past few years, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has made a hobby of joining a movie franchise already in progress and making it way better. "The Mummy Returns" may have been a rocky start to The Rock's movie saving, but the power of "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island," "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," and the "Fast & Furious" series cannot be denied.

If you needed any further proof of The Rock's ability to instantly improve any movie, the folks over at Next Movie have edited him into classic movies just to make that point. Now you can see the former professional wrestler in films like "E.T.," "Casablanca," and, of course, "The Rock."

Check it out in the video above!
