It's hard not to love John Green. The author of "The Fault In Our Stars" is also an incredibly popular internet personality, and he hosts — among many, many other things — a weekly video series over at mentalfloss that is packed with fascinating info.
We've enjoyed pretty much every mentalfloss video thus far, but the latest one is right up our alley.
In the new episode, Green tells of 55 movies that, for whatever reason, went unfinished. Some of the stalled projects have become well-known over the years, like Nic Cage's Superman flick, but most are new to us.
Check it out in the video above!
For the first time since 2005, Pixar will not be releasing a movie next year. That's because "The Good Dinosaur," the movie that was scheduled to be released in theaters on May 30, 2014, will now open in November of 2015, taking a release date away from "Finding Dori." The "Finding Nemo" sequel will now come out in the summer of 2016.
The future of "The Good Dinosaur" has been uncertain in recent weeks, and the pushed back release date seems to bring closure to the shaky period.
It was late last month when Bob Peterson, a co-director of "Up," was pulled of the his follow-up project, "The Good Dinosaur," by the Pixar higher-ups without a public explanation, other than that it's important to get a new set of eyes on a project sometime.
Last week's news about J.K. Rowling penning the first film in a "Harry Potter" spin-off series caught everyone by surprise. Few authors are as protective of their characters as Rowling , especially those from the wizarding world, so the least shocking element of the news was her heavy involvement.
But how closely will Rowling work on the project? The initial press release from Warner Bros indicated that the best-selling author would write the first screenplay for the series based on "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," which will follow the fictional book's author, Newt Scamander.
Now a new story from The Hollywood Reporter gives us a better idea of the role Rowling will play in the series.
FROM NEXT MOVIE
The internet flipped over the last set of "Seinfeld"-inspired movie posters from Next Movie, so we're happy to bring you news that the next set of posters is just as good.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like if all those movies mentioned in "Seinfeld" (not "Schindler's List" or "Home Alone") were actually real? Once again, Next Movie has imagined movie posters with real stars.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that any young actor on the verge of breaking out is in want of a lead role in a romantic comedy. That's just movie star logic, but there's something interesting about the movie "That Awkward Moment." It's got three different young stars on the cusp of the big time.
Zac Efron, Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller have all had strong years recently, and now the three of them are teaming up for the new relationship comedy that looks at the point in a relationship when it's time to decide if the coupling can last.
The first photo from the film, which was just retitled from "Are We Officially Dating," has now debuted, giving us a look at the stars living it up as single (for now) dudes in New York City.
"Machete Kills" exists for pretty much one reason: to exploit what makes an R-rated movie and R-rated movie. That's why it's only natural that a red band trailer hit the web to promote it.
Also, Samuel L. Jackson isn't as bad as you think he is in today's Dailies!
Aside from giving us a wonderfully bizarre slice of life, Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring" literally took us into Paris Hilton's closet.
No, seriously, that was her actual closet.
In this exclusive featurette from the Blu-ray and DVD, which are out in store now, Coppola recalls what it was like working with Hilton to recreate the multiple burglaries that took place in her decked out shoe palace.
Watch the clip above, and if you want to see more from the disc, check out "The Bling Ring" on Blu-ray and DVD now.
Hey, everyone! It's Kyle Chandler's 47th birthday today. And like everything about Kyle Chandler, we assume that the same applies for Coach Eric Taylor.
That being the case, happy 47th birthday, Coach Eric Taylor! Since you're one of the greatest television characters of all time, we figured that we would throw you a GIF party.

Despite the worst kind of pre-release buzz that a tentpole has seen in a long way, "World War Z" did not burst into flames upon its release earlier this year. In fact, it remains one of 2013's biggest hits to date.
The film's success wasn't a surprise to anyone who actually saw the film, which got the benefit of a new ending from Damon Lindelof and Drew Goddard.
Now for the Blu-ray release of the film, MTV News spoke with director Marc Forster about the film's success and what it was like to sit through all that bad press.
The teaming of Arnold Schwarzenegger and James Cameron is a pretty formidable one. In three films together, they made two bona fide classics, the first two "Terminator" movies, and one more highly respected action movie, "True Lies." With both men still working, it seemed like only a matter of time before we saw the credits back on screen together.
Cameron has publicly aired his intention to only make "Avatar" movies in order to fund his adventures to the ocean floor, and plans for the next three looked to tie him up even further down the road, but if Latino-Review has the story right, the Cameron-Schwarzenegger reteam might be sooner than we expected.
El Mayimbe over at Latino-Review is reporting that Schwarzenegger is in line to play the next big human bad guy for the fantasy-action series.
