The stars are literally aligning for the upcoming McG-directed "Terminator Salvation." With rumors of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton lending their likeness and voice talents, respectively, it was only a matter of time before another "Terminator 2” veteran got linked to the project -- the dreaded T-1000 himself, Robert Patrick.
In an interview with FEARNet, McG discussed the idea of having Patrick return for an eventual "Terminator 5” as a scientist working to improve health standards for mankind. "Imagine seeing a sixty-year-old Robert Patrick and knowing, 'Holy sh--! That's gonna be the T-1000,'" McG declared. Read More...
He’s one of the funniest men in stand-up comedy. But when Jim Gaffigan recently got to shoot a movie with Zac Efron, even he had some lessons to learn about timing.
“He is so equipped for this mega-stardom, it’s kind of scary,” grinned the comic, who appears opposite Efron in “17 Again,” which hits theaters April 17th. “Obviously, after ‘High School Musical,’ [we know he] can dance and all that. And there is a dance number in there - and I am in the corner eating Hot Pockets.”
Despite recent rumors that Efron had given up dancing to pursue more adult roles, the 21-year-old star does manage to kick up his heels one last time in a “17 Again” scene. Read More...
FROM SPLASH PAGE: With volume after volume of the original manga and hundreds of episodes of multiple anime series, it’s no surprise that next week’s "Dragonball Evolution" only touches the tip of the iceberg in regards to the epic mythology of "Dragonball." What is a surprise, however, is that a sequel has already been penned.
“I know they’ve written a second one and it’s pretty far out there,” actor Justin Chatwin told MTV News. Chatwin plays Goku, the hero of the tale, who seeks to recover the powerful "Dragonballs" and protect the world from the evil Lord Piccolo, played by "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" alum James Marsters.

Miley Cyrus and Nick Jonas aren't the only Cyrus and Jonas family members working together on new projects these days. Noah Cyrus, Miley's 9-year-old little sister, and Frankie Jonas, 8, better known as the Bonus Jonas, are voice actors in the animated flick, "Ponyo," by "Spirited Away" director Hayao Miyazaki.
"I actually have a movie coming out call 'Ponyo,' " Noah told the Press Association about the movie. "I play a goldfish in it, and I wanna be a human in it, and my best friend is a human, and I think that's where I get it from, and then I turn into a human. The guy who plays my best friend in it is Frankie Jonas, the Jonas Brothers' little brother."
"Ponyo," which was released as "Ponyo on a Cliff by the Sea" in Japan last July, will be released stateside on August 14, according to Slashfilm.com.
Cate Blanchett, Matt Damon, Tina Fey, Cloris Leachman, Liam Neeson, Lily Tomlin and Betty White have also been cast to do voices in the film. According to Slashfilm, Disney hopes to make the American release of "Ponyo" Miyazaki's "biggest hit ever Stateside." "Spirited Away" earned more than $10 million dollars stateside.

Red carpets and movie premieres are places to see celebrities who have something to promote: an album, a new show, an upcoming film, a new clothing line, you name it. Although this is usually true, at the "Hannah Montana: The Movie" premiere last night in Hollywood, Taylor Swift and Demi Lovato made it clear that they were there to show their support their good friend Miley Cyrus.
How can you tell? Body language. The girls were clearly glad to see each other, as evidenced by the genuine hugs between poses for the photographers. (Check out the photos of Miley with her friends after the jump, plus more photos from the carpet in our "Hannah Montana: The Movie" premiere gallery.) Read More...
Vin Diesel promised at least two more "Chronicles of Riddick" sequels, taking his sci-fi action hero into the depths of the Underverse and beyond. Diesel, whose new film "Fast & Furious" hits theaters this week, chose his words carefully, but he hinted at some epic fight scenes to come in the third Riddick installment.
"There will be long scenes and long portions, full acts of just Riddick against the beasts -- or creatures -- isolated, which will be very compelling," Diesel told MTV News. "How that's interwoven with the mythology set forth in 'Chronicles of Riddick' is what we're waiting for from David Twowy, who's almost done with the script." Read More...
The docs have performed their last astonishing surgery, threaded their remaining sutures, made out passionately in the supply closet for the final time: NBC’s “ER” is officially no more. Over 15 seasons, cast members have come, gone, and (sometimes) come again. A few went on to successful film careers, while others had originally retreated to network TV because their big screen livelihoods gave out like so many overworked hearts on the operating table. With the series finale still fresh in our memories, let’s take a look at the five cast members with the most memorable film careers (and a few who narrowly missed the list). Read More...
Has there been a force of nature that's hit theaters in the way "Borat" did in the past three years? It was so unexpected. So unstoppable. So refreshing. Could Sacha Baron Cohen possibly have done it again? "Bruno" can't possibly be what "Borat" was. After all, this time we know what to expect -- anything and everything. Still, the first glimpse of "Bruno" is here and it's hard to say it doesn't deliver. What do you think?
FROM SPLASH PAGE: For a man with a substantial chunk of geek cred — please see his publicly acknowledged “Dungeons and Dragons” loyalty — “Fast and Furious” star Vin Diesel has remained surprisingly squeamish when it comes to comic book films, declaring that he makes his own superhero characters instead. Interestingly, it might be that superheroes aren’t his preference, as the actor recently told MTV News that he’s got his eye on some more villainous roles.
“I would be more apt to play a villain,” Diesel revealed to MTV News. “[I'd like to play] the protagonist of a story that is also like a Marvel villain — like Doctor Doom or something.”
