Taylor Lautner has landed his first big comedy role opposite Adam Sandler in "Grown Ups 2." In other news, "Skyfall" gets a new Bond girl, "The Tomb" lands a big supporting cast and Bradley Cooper is being considered for "Here There Be Giants."
It's April 5, and you're tuning in for today's casting call.
When the trailer for "Wrath of the Titans" dropped, it seemed like everyone couldn't help but comment on Sam Worthington's hair, of all things. In the ten years that passed between the events of "Clash of the Titans" and "Wrath," Perseus must have been looking for something new in the hair department and decided to just grow it out.
We asked Worthington about the big to-do about his hair, and he didn't quite understand. But he did go on to success some hairstyle he could have for any future "Titans" movies.
We have a few recommendations of our own, so here are some styles that Perseus should consider for the next time around.
If you read any of the reviews or box office reports from this weekend's reign of "The Hunger Games," you no doubt read some comparisons to "The Twilight Saga." Both are based on a series of YA novels with female leads, but how apt are those comparisons?
We've taken a look at the key elements of the two series and stacked them up against each other. It turns out that they are inherently different stories, despite what you've read this past weekend.
The similarities shared by "Twilight" and "The Hunger Games" begin with the actual novels behind the multi-million dollar franchises. Both Stephenie Meyer and Suzanne Collins struck gold with their first-person narrated novels, told from a young woman's point of view, and aimed at the young adult quadrant of readers. Meyer's books fell victim to complaints about poor writing from the outset, while Collins' trilogy puts the emphasis more on action and cliffhangers, instead of character-centered, supernatural melodrama.
The official "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" teaser trailer that debuted in front of "The Hunger Games" this weekend is now online for your viewing pleasure. Check it out if you've got a few seconds -- seriously, that's all you need to see the whole thing. The teaser is a whopping 45 seconds long, giving you your first look at Bella in her newfound vampire state. Short though the clip may be, the "Breaking Dawn" teaser should still give fans plenty to get excited about.
"Breaking Dawn - Part 2" concludes the "Twilight" series on November 16, 2012.

When a high profile literary adaptation as big as "The Hunger Games" hits theaters, the quality of the actual movie can be a secondary detail. Luckily, a talented cast and a skilled director have not only put together a faithful adaptation, but one that doesn't suck, at all. "The Hunger Games" struck the treacherous balance between loyalty to the book and working as a standalone movie. We kind of love it.
Here are our five reasons to check out "The Hunger Games." (Although, you probably already have tickets.)
The Fuzzy Pack is backy-back once again with today's home video release of "The Muppets." If you still haven't seen Kermit the Frog and company's glorious return via Jason Segel… well, what's wrong with you? It was and remains my favorite movie of 2011, and I'm not just saying that because I got to talk with Kermit and new guy Walter about "The Avengers" last week. (Though that was pretty sweet.)
Even if you have seen "The Muppets," the newly released Blu-ray is a must-buy for any and all fans. Keep reading for five reasons to own "Muppets" on Blu-ray.
It would be a mistake to treat "The Hunger Games" lightly. "Twilight" this is not; director Gary Ross' adaptation of the Suzanne Collins novel is bloody and brutal at every turn, leaving a pile of bodies in its wake.
That said, "Hunger Games" does lend itself to some artistic reinterpretation… as our good pals at NextMovie figured out when transforming key "Hunger Games" characters into Springfield residents.
That's right: it's "Hunger Games" meets "The Simpsons," the mash-up you never knew you needed so badly. Head over to NextMovie to see their entire gallery!
Kristen Stewart's Snow White might be the fairest of them all in "Snow White and the Huntsman," but she's also battle-ready and, apparently, British. A new full-length trailer for the film shows off just how action-packed and fantastical Rupert Sanders' debut movie actually is.
The biggest surprise in the trailer is Stewart's new British accent. She totally rocks the dialect, and it really helps set this character apart from the Bella Swan we've come to know so well thanks to the "Twilight Saga" films. And it's nice to see that she is at the center of this trailer more than she was in its previous teaser. It underlines the fact that this is, after all, a movie about Snow White.
Stop whatever you're doing right now, because we've got the best video you're going to watch on the Internet all day. Kermit the Frog and Walter recently stopped by the MTV News office to promote the upcoming DVD release of "The Muppets," and they were kind enough to sit down with us for the latest edition of Talk Nerdy.
Yes, it is as amazing as it sounds. The pair talk "The Avengers," "The Hunger Games," "Twilight" and plenty of "The Muppets" with MTV Movies Blog editor and resident nerd Josh Wigler. Walter points out that Disney could have saved an awful lot of money on "The Avengers" by just casting Kermit as the Hulk and himself as Captain America, and we've got to admit, we agree (sorry Mark Ruffalo and Chris Evans, you're great too).
And we agree one hundred percent with Walter when he said, "I think that's the problem with a lot of movies, is they need more Muppets. That's my motto." Could you even imagine?
Deranged director Tom Six has big plans for a "Human Centipede 3" film. We're not lying when we say it's huge.
The controversial filmmaker recently took to Twitter (via Dread Central) and told followers he wants to feature a 500 plus person pede in the third gruesome installment of his detestable franchise. He'll start filming the movie this summer down south, aiming for a 2013 release. The third "Human Centipede" will feature stars Dieter Laser (the crazed surgeon from the first film) and Laurence R. Harvey (the insane parking lot attendant from the second movie), and even the director himself in a bit role. Like always, Six promises that the film will be "100 percent politically incorrect."
Has the director gone too far this time? Do you think he'll attempt to make his monstrous creation with live actors or end up using CG? Try to erase the image from your mind entirely, and head past the break for more horror news!
