"Rapture-Palooza" is a new comedy that takes a light, humorous look at the End of Days. Anna Kendrick and John Francis Daley from "Freak and Geeks" star as a couple just trying to cope with the apocalypse, and things aren't that bad until the Anti-Christ shows up.

In this exclusive clip from "Rapture-Palooza," Kendrick's character, Lindsey, has to make a tough choice. Beast (Craig Robinson) wants to take Lindsey as his bride, and if she resists, he'll kill her boyfriend and his dad (Rob Corddry).

A ton of other funny people make up the rest of the cast, including Ken Jeong, Rob Huebel, and Paul Scheer.

"Rapture-Palooza" will hit theaters and video on-demand on June 7.

Fresh Prince

We have yet to see what kind of summer movie fruits the latest collaboration from the father-son duo of Will and Jaden Smith, M. Night Shyamalan's "After Earth," will bear when it hits theaters this Friday (5/31), but the pair have already been doing some good work during their press tour in the UK.

During their recent stop to the "Graham Norton Show," Will and Jaden decided to do a little live collaboration on a classic from dad's past. When he last stopped by for "Men in Black III," Will performed the theme from "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," and it went viral. To top that last video, he brought his son into the fold, and the two brought down the house with another rendition of the theme.

Check out the video after the jump! (And stick around until the end for a little surprise!)

The new 3-D computer animated film "Epic" tells the story of a battle between the (very small) forces of good and evil in nature, where the very life of a forest hangs in the balance. It features the voices of Amanda Seyfried, Jason Sudeikis, Colin Farrell, Josh Hutcherson, Christoph Waltz, Aziz Ansari, Chris O'Dowd, Beyonce Knowles, Steven Tyler and Pitbull.

In the movie, Ansari plays a cocky slug named Mub; O'Dowd is his brave snail sidekick, Grub. Together they form a comedy team in the grand tradition of animated duos like Timon and Pumbaa, Buzz and Woody, and Shrek and Donkey.

Though he brings a lot of funny to "Epic," Ansari described his serious (and very made-up) preparation for the role. "Pitbull and I took a few classes at a nearby university to learn as much as we could about the insect world," he told MTV News. "We learned quite a bit."

O'Dowd was slightly less academic with his own "research" —"I just watched telly," he said.

"Epic" is in theaters now.

The unfortunate souls that didn't make it into Hall H for the big unveiling of Guillermo del Toro's monsters-versus-robots battle royale, "Pacific Rim," missed out on an explanation of a key detail that is sure to give the movie a lot of its emotional heft.

Trailers for "Pacific Rim" show two suited pilots at the controls of the skyscraper-tall jaegers that battle the invading kaiju, which caused some people to ask why there needed to be more than one and even some accusations of cheap plot devices. In reality, the two-person team exists because of the enormity of the machine they're controlling.

As a new featurette (via IGN) explains, the neural bridge made to pilot the jaeger reveals the entire content of one person's brain to the other, in order to completely synchronize the two. We see in some footage that early experiments with one pilot ended badly, thus the two-pilot system was born.

"Pacific Rim" opens in theaters on July 12.

With the premiere of "Part III" in theaters tomorrow, the epic saga of "The Hangover" will come to a close. The comedy franchise launched the careers of Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis and countless in-jokes about Wolfpacks and questions about why they're called ruffies.

The "Hangover" movies have also inspired their fair share of spoof videos, including this latest one from the folks over at Next Movie. What would happen if a group of toddlers had one wild night and did whatever they wanted? The answer is pretty adorable.

Check out the video above!

"The Hangover Part III" opens in theaters tomorrow, May 23.

Bling Ring

It's pretty safe to say that the people portrayed in the true-life drama, "The Bling Ring," don't exactly have their priorities in line. The movie, which is tearing it up in Cannes right now, tells the story of a group of L.A.-based teens who want to live the life of a celebrity, so they do the next best thing by breaking into their homes.

A new clip from "The Bling Ring" gives us a unique look inside the psyches of these criminally dubious teens via their dream board.

Check out the clip and find out what the girls like about Angelina Jolie after the jump!

In the seven years that "Arrested Development" has been off the air, a lot must have happened to the hilarious and perpetually destructive Bluth family. Or not. The show is called "Arrested Development" after all.

But since seven years is a long time regardless of how arrested the development of the Bluth is, MTV News sat down with the cast of the cult TV show to see what everyone has been up to since the last time that we visited with the family.

"Arrested Development" returns on Netflix this coming Sunday, May 26.

Picking a project for Holllywood actors can come down to a single aspect, whether it's an acclaimed director or the location of the shoot. For Jeremy Renner and "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters," all he needed was simple piece of concept art.

As Renner explains in this exclusive from the Blu-ray and DVD release of "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters," the one-sheet image of his character and his on-screen sister convinced him that the movie was worth doing before he even saw a script.

"The initial attraction to do the movie came from a little one sheet that I got before I even got the script, and it was something that they ended up shooting in the movie. It was Hansel and Gretel walking away," Renner says. "There's a fire going and a witch burning in the background. He has a shotgun, and she has this crossbow. That's interesting to me. I don't know why, but it was."

The unrated version of "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" hits Blu-ray and DVD on June 11. It is available for digital download now.

Last week, we traveled to Las Vegas to sit down with the Wolfpack to talk "The Hangover" for one last time before the trilogy ends next week. We'll have more about that movie closer to the release date, but we took some time out of our interview to ask a few questions about Bradley Cooper's and Ed Helms' upcoming projects.

A few weeks ago, Steven Spielberg signed on to direct Cooper in an adaptation of "American Sniper," the tragic true story of Chris Kyle, whose memoir the actor's production company optioned. Cooper shared his reaction to attracting such a legendary director.
