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.

After years of waiting, "Star Trek Into Darkness" has finally hit theaters. The original gang's all there, along with a shady new villain played by Benedict Cumberbatch. Is this baddie, as is claimed, a generic nobody named John Harrison? Or is he really a certain somebody whose name rhymes with swan? Who can say? But since Cumberbatch the actor will be literally everywhere this year ("August: Osage County," "The Fifth Estate," "The Hobbit - The Desolation of Smaug" (and look! There he is outside my window), we've put together six fun facts you may not have known about the "Sherlock" star. Go boldly where no man has gone before and read on!
There are 26 letters in the English alphabet, but there are going to be two movies about "The ABCs of Death." A sequel to the creepy anthology is on the way, and filmmakers are promising a leaner and meaner set of horrors. You remember how this works: each director creates a short based on a theme related to a letter of the alphabet, and of course, death. Alex de la Iglesia ("The Last Circus"), Rodney Ascher ("Room 237"), and Academy Award-nominated animator Bill Plympton have already signed on to direct, plus there will be another competition to find the 26th filmmaker. The sequel is planned for a 2014 release, so you have plenty of time to break out your camera and get to work.

If you still need more proof that Benedict Cumberbatch is one of the most charming men on the planet, look no further than the latest edition of MTV After Hours.
Catching up with the "Star Trek Into Darkness" baddie on the red carpet, MTV News correspondent Josh Horowitz put Benedict to the task by administering the unofficial citizenship test for celebrities traversing the Atlantic: AMERICAN TALK. (For the uninitiated, you can check out previous installments with Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe here and here.

"Star Trek Into Darkness" opens in US theaters today.
Last night on "Jimmy Kimmel Live, J.J. Abrams admitted that he and Michael Arndt have hit a bit of a wall while writing "Star Wars: Episode VII." The revelation of writer's block led Jimmy to suggest that Abrams listen to some helpful members of the audience that had ideas for what should be included in the next "Star Wars."
The general consensus was that Chewbacca and Princess Leia need to get it on, and if they aren't getting it on, the movie should only consist of Lando making sweet love in the galaxy.
The suggestions, of course, came from fanboys planted in the audience, Billy Dee Williams, and a red-faced William Shatner. Here's to hoping that Abrams actually listens to the fans and gives them what they want.

The "Fast & Furious 6" crew sat down with MTV News last night for an MTV First, complete with a 30-minute interview and an exclusive clip. If you weren't able to catch the goodness of MTV and MTV.com, it's your lucky day. The entire show and clip are available on demand right now.
In the never-before-seen clip from the six movie of the "Fast & Furious" franchise, we see Ludacris, reprising his role from earlier in the series, acting ask a scout for the team's latest operation.
Things are going smoothly until a cable is strung across oncoming traffic, laying waste to two approaching vehicles, but revealing the nasty surprise hidden inside. It's a tank.
"Fast & Furious 6" opens in theaters on May 24.
Here's a great way to start off your Thursday. The first NSFW trailer for "V/H/S/2," the sequel to the found footage anthology that scared the crap out of us last year, just dropped over at Yahoo! Movies. What the preview emphasizes—aside from how freaking scary this thing looks—is the serious talent they've lined up to direct segments for the second go around.
For the sequel, you'll see found footage short films from the directors of "The Raid: Redemption," upcoming horror flick "You're Next," "Hobo With a Shotgun," and "The Blair Witch Project."
The consensus coming out of Sundance this year was that "V/H/S/2," then called "S-V/H/S," is much scarier than its predecessor and uses the found footage format to greater effect.
We'll find out when "V/H/S/2" hits VOD on June 6 and theaters on July 12.
Six films into any film series, the premise of the movies is going to seem a little stale. Even with a franchise as fun as "Fast & Furious," you can't help but start to think, "Cars? What else you got?"
The answer: How about a tank?
As a part of "MTV First: Fast & Furious 6," we are debuting an exclusive look at the upcoming film, and we're throwing in a 30-minute interview with Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, and Michelle Rodriguez for good measure.
All of the action starts at 7:56 p.m. ET on MTV and continues right here for the interview portion immediately after the clip!
Sorry if you're just hearing this for the first time, but Hollywood is out of ideas. Therefore, "Angry Birds: The Movie." The outrageously popular mobile game is becoming an animated movie, set for release in 2016. Let's sit back and see if it's still as popular then.

"Texas Chainsaw 3D" hit Blu-ray, DVD, and digital download this week, so we hopped on the phone with the movie's deadly heroine, Alexandra Daddario, about how she looks back on her run-in with Leatherface, whether her own movie can actually scare her, and what it's like to go crazy on screen.
