As you might already know, John M. Chu directed "Step Up 2: The Streets," "Step Up 3D," "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never," oh, and this little movie you might have heard is coming out this summer called "G.I. Joe: Retaliation"! The film is currently in post-production, but when we saw Chu write that he landed in a "secret location," our minds immediately asked: "Cobra lair?!" Hey, "Marvel's The Avengers" shot an extra scene after the film already premiered—it could happen!

By now we're sure you've heard of the "Twilight"-fan-fiction-turned-novel "Fifty Shades of Grey." The S&M tales of savvy businessman Christian Grey and college graduate Anastasia Steele are causing quite a stir as the erotic couple is based on Edward Cullen and Bella Swan.
With a film adaptation in the works, the Internet is buzzing with casting rumors. Maybe we can throw Brooklyn Decker's name into the ring? While the actress is starring in this summer's highly-anticipated "Battleship," she's still relatively up-and-coming and it would be the perfect break-out performance. She even has a shy confidence about her that would work perfectly with the timid Anastasia.

There's a good reason Robert Pattinson's upcoming film "Cosmopolis" won the MTV Movie Brawl earlier this year: it looks freaking awesome.
Hot off the news that the flick will be making its premiere at Cannes this year, the folks behind the movie released two new trailers that give us a good idea of what we can expect when David Cronenberg's latest hits theaters. In true Cronenberg fashion, "Cosmopolis" looks like it will be dark, surreal and all around fantastic.
It also is Pattinson's first chance to really flex his acting muscles in something that's not a romantic film, a genre that he's been somewhat pigeonholed in ever since "Twilight" first came out. Between this and "Bel Ami" being released this year, we're looking forward to seeing a side of the 25-year-old actor that we've never seen before.
The death of entertainment icon Dick Clark rocked us here at MTV yesterday. Clark brightened the hearts of all whenever he took over the small screens in our homes. With his boyish charm and lovable personality he was often referred to as the world's oldest teenager.
But age caught up with the actor and radio personality as he suffered from a multitude of illnesses since 2004. His passing, however, does not mean he will be forgotten. The man behind "American Bandstand" and "Rockin' Eve" will live on in the hearts of everyone with an interest in entertainment—especially his protege Ryan Seacrest.
Seacrest was far from the only celebrity who took to Twitter to express his feelings about Clark's death. April 19, 2012's Twitter-Wood brings you words about the legend from Mariah Carey, Seth Green, Alyssa Milano and more.
As Neil Patrick Harris tweeted: "For ever, Dick Clark... So long."
We've been seeing a ton of behind the scenes footage of "Silent Hill: Revelation" — most of it from fans invading the set. Shaky cam be damned, we're still curious and anxious to see more — and finally, a release date has been set for the 3D horror film.
The videogame-inspired sequel will be hitting theaters on October 26, just in time for your Halloween festivities. Sean Bean, Deborah Kara Unger and Radha Mitchell will be returning to the story directed by Michael J. Bassett. In "Silent Hill: Revelation," Heather Mason (Clemens) and her father (Bean) have been running from dangerous and mysterious forces that the young girl doesn't fully understand. Eventually all is revealed, sinking her deeper into a demonic world.
Are you still worried about the 3D aspect of the film, or will that immerse you in "Silent Hill's" twisted universe even more? Let us know in the comments, and keep reading for more of this week's Horror Bites.
With all the hype surrounding "Marvel's The Avengers" we already know the film won't disappoint. No matter how high our expectations, they're bound to be met with even higher performances from the cast and incredible directing from Joss Whedon. From the exclusive clips to the movie stills, we're as eager to see film as "Twilight" fans are to get their hands on Edward Cullen. Yes. It's that bad.
To add to our impatience, the red carpet premiere for the film took place in L.A. yesterday and the tweets from those who saw the film are rolling in. Our envy is making us look as green as the Hulk. From the stars invited to the premiere, like Seth Green, to the "Avengers" actors themselves, everyone is buzzing about Earth's mightiest heroes in April 12, 2012's Twitter-Wood.
The lead love interest for Richard LaGravenese's "Beautiful Creatures" — an adaptation of the young adult supernatural romance novel (also a series) by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl — has been replaced. Jack O'Connell has left the project due to scheduling conflicts, and Alden Ehrenreich is stepping in.
The "Twixt" and "Tetro" actor will be starring as Ethan — in love with local girl Lena. Both teens uncover dark secrets about their families and the town they live in. Ethan also happens to have a nasty ex-girlfriend, who enacts some "Mean Girls-style" revenge against Lena. We previously reported that Jeremy Irons is also starring in the film, along with Viola Davis, Emma Thompson, Thomas Mann, and Emmy Rossum. Are you in the mood for a supernatural star-crossed lovers story, or have you had your fill of all things "Twilight-esque" for a while?

You guys know Walter, right? He's the very manly Muppet who just starred in — you guessed it — "The Muppets" late last year alongside Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy. Although the whistling Walter is an official member of the Muppets gang now, shaking off your uber-fandom isn't something that happens overnight. It takes a good little while to accept one's place in the big leagues, though we'll say, Walter is doing a heck of a job at that.
Still, the little guy has enough time on his hands to indulge his inner-Muppets fandom on more than a few occasions. Case in point: this MTV Movies exclusive "Muppets" infographic, cooked up by Walter himself! His years of fandom and expertise are on full display here: he's kept tabs on all of Gonzo the Great's fantastic stunt work (and resulting damage), the results of Dr. Bunsen Honeydew's weirdest experiments, the various tools in Swedish Chef's kitchen, and more. Pretty impressive stuff!
