A revealing music video for Robin Thicke's song "Blurred Lines" made an internet sensation out of Emily Ratajkowski, and now a role in one of the most highly anticipated literary adaptations will give her first shot at a big screen role that will involve slightly more clothing.
Ratajkowski, according to The Wrap, has just scored a role in David Fincher's "Gone Girl," the adaptation of Gillian Flynn's best-selling novel. She'll play Andie, a mysterious girl who is revealed to have an important role in the disappearance of Amy Dunne (Rosamund Pike).
As anyone who has read "Gone Girl" will tell you, spoilers are pretty deadly for the overall effect of the story, so click past the jump for more (slightly spoilery) info on the role!
Here we were getting ridiculously excited for "Fast and Furious 7" thanks to some serious casting news, but things are already underway on the set. Vin Diesel, who has taken to Facebook unlike any other celebrity, posted a picture from the set to his page that is already getting us pumped for our next dosage of insane action.
Diesel posted a picture with Paul Walker from the set with the caption, "The unknown road ahead... P.s. One from the set."
The road might be unknown, but it's certainly an exciting one. As teased after the credits of "Fast and Furious 6," Jason Statham is joining the cast as a man looking for revenge for his brother's death. Then there's Kurt Russell, who is also in talks to, along with Tony Jaa and Djimon Hounsou. These are all stellar editions to what was already a solid ensemble cast.
"Fast and Furious 7" is scheduled to hit theaters on July 11, 2014.

Last week was pretty groundbreaking as far as "Star Wars VII" goes. Not only did we get a first look at what could potentially be the title of the newest "Star Wars" film, "A New Dawn," but we also heard some more exciting news pertaining to the highly-anticipated "Star Wars" spinoff films!
At a recent Disney press conference, chief financial officer Jay Rasulo referred to the aforementioned spinoffs as "origin stories," confirming the rumor that each "Star Wars" spinoff will be focusing on the individual backstories of characters such as Han Solo, Boba Fett, and Yoda. While this is all extremely exciting, we can't help but wonder what characters from the Star Wars Expanded Universe might be popping up in "Star Wars VII." Take Shimrra Jamaane for example, the Yuuzhan Vong Supreme Overlord.
Andy Muschietti, the director behind the surprise horror hit of the year, "Mama," has been tapped by that film's studio to direct the reboot of "The Mummy." John Spaight, who penned the original draft of "Prometheus," wrote the screenplay.

Because it's Friday the 13th and you've already seen a black cat, smashed a mirror, and yelled "Candyman" five times into the mirror at work, we've got what you're looking for:
On the Big Screen: "Insidious: Chapter 2"
While we've gotta give Billy Bob Thornton props for his latest directorial effort with "Jayne Mansfield's Car," today is not the day to deal with family turmoil plotlines. Unless, that is, said turmoil is due to murderous supernatural spirits who have been haunting you since childhood. The "Insidious" sequel is jam packed with creepy toddler walkers, terrifying rocking horses, and freaky baby monitors. You will never feel the same in a Babies "R" Us again.
Yesterday, J.K. Rowling revealed her plans to spoil us all with a new movie set in the "Harry Potter" universe that she's writing. The films based on "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" will follow the fictional encyclopedia's author, Newt Scamander, seventy years before the events of Rowling's classic series of books.
Since the events of the "Harry Potter" series begin in 1991, that places the timeline for the "Fantastic Beasts" movie somewhere in the 1920s, long before Harry or even his parents were born. So while we won't see the likes of Hermione Granger or Ron Weasley, there are a number of "Harry Potter" characters that could appear as younger versions of themselves.
"How I Live Now," a film that just premiered at TIFF starring Saoirse Ronan, may be about a third world war breaking out, but it's a love story at its heart. As a 19-year-old actress, Ronan is finding herself in more and more adult situations on screen, and "How I Live Now" was the actress' first experience filming a sex scene.
When MTV News' Josh Horowitz sat down with Ronan at TIFF, she recalled what it was like to go through a scene like that for the first time.
"I actually wasn't nervous about it," Ronan said. "It was always written in the script, and there needed to be a sex scene in this film. They needed to consummate their love, I think, in order for us to really feel the heartbreak when they're separated because obviously, it becomes a lot more intense after."
Next year already has a ton of movies that we're looking forward to, but "Need for Speed" holds a special spot on our most-anticipated list for a number of reasons. The first has to be Aaron Paul, making his jump to big-budget films soon after the ending of "Breaking Bad." We're also always hoping for a video game-based movie that isn't horrible.
And what we've seen so far from "Need for Speed" is shaping up nicely. While we can't tell too much from these new images (via EW), they do remind us that there is a very solid cast.
"Need for Speed" is an adaptation of the popular racing game, and it stars Paul, "50 Shades of Grey" lead Dakota Johnson, Dominic Cooper, Kid Cudi, and Michael Keaton. You can see some of these people in the two new images from EW below!
We've seen the first trailer. Now the first poster for the "RoboCop" remake staring Joel Kinnaman is live. Check out the full version after the jump!

It only seems like yesterday that Daniel Radcliffe was stepping off the Hogwarts Express for the first time, but here we are, 12 years later, the boy is now not only a man, but an experienced sex actor.
A sex actor? Yes, a sex actor. That's what MTV News' Josh Horowitz asked Radcliffe all about when they met up at the Toronto International Film Festival, where three of his movies ("Kill Your Darlings," "Horns," "The F Word") were playing.
In the latest edition of After Hours, you'll get to hear first-hand how Radcliffe honed his skills as a sex actor and who he looks to for sex acting inspiration.
