Plush

For her follow-up to the first "Twilight" movie, director Catherine Hardwicke didn't stray too far from the paranormal romance genre with "Red Riding Hood." Since that movie was — let's call it — less than successful, it comes as no surprising that Hardwicke is going in a different direction for her next movie. But she's hanging onto the love triangle.

"Plush," her new film starring Emily Browning and "Twilight" baddie Cam Gigandet, just debuted its first trailer, giving us a look at Hardwicke's twisted take on the world of rock and roll.

In the film, which hits theaters this week and debuts on DVD next month, Browning plays a rocker that faces the challenges of producing another hit. Things get even more complicated when she hires a sexy new guitarist and begins to get mysterious packages from an apparently obsessed fan.

Check out the trailer after the jump!

Star Wars

It's about time for another "Star Wars: Episode VII" rumor. What's up for speculation this time?

Ahh, it appears that Talkbacker.com is citing an anonymous source that claims to know a potential title for the ever-discussed sequel. According to the site, "A New Dawn" is one of the titles under consideration by Team J.J. The report also includes mention that a 1:1 scale cross-section of the Millennium Falcon is being built in Pinewoods studios, alongside a power plant set and the Mos Eisley cantina.

Consider this a particularly shaky rumor for now since Talkbacker's source says it's just one of several names being considered, and "A New Dawn" was floating around as early as last November, before Abrams signed on.

Star Wars

By Ryan Rigley

Looks like "Star Wars VII" is finally starting to pick up some steam. Last week, two more actors were revealed to be in the running for key roles in the upcoming "Star Wars" trilogy: Ksenia Solo and Liam McIntyre. Allegedly, Solo is up for the role of Han and Leia's daughter while McIntyre is in talks to play an as-of-yet unnamed Jedi.

This, of course, means that Ksenia Solo and Rachel Hurd-Wood may or may not be directly competing for the role of Leia's daughter, who has been said to potentially be the main protagonist of the film. While this is all well and good, we can't help but wonder what mysterious Jedi McIntyre will be portraying. After all, there are several key Jedi in the Star Wars Expanded Universe ripe for the picking. Take Kyp Durron for example, a Jedi who was at one point possessed by the spirit of a deceased Sith Lord.

Everyone knows that Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant, best known for "Reno 911," know funny when they see it, and now thanks to their first feature film as directors, "Hell Baby," they know a thing or two about scary.

So now that they're familiar with both genres, we figured we would get their input on which scary movies were the funniest. Freddy tells more jokes than Jason, but is he trying too hard? What is it about "The Poltergeist" makes it so much funnier than "The Exorcist"? (Hint: It involves lots of off-screen tragedy.)

See what Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant have to say about these scary movies and more in the clip above!

Yesterday, news came down from the Toronto International Film Festival that director Anton Corbijn had found his two lead actors for "Life," a retelling of the friendship between James Dean and the photographer that snapped some of the actor's most famous portraits in Times Square, Dennis Stock.

Dane DeHaan and Robert Pattinson will play Dean and Stock, respectively, and while the pairing should have anyone who is interested in the young actors' blossoming careers excited, the idea of a big screen retelling of the story behind the famous photos is reason enough to look forward to "Life."

Salinger

By Amelia Mularz

Because the "50 Shades of Grey" stars were announced this week and sadly you didn't get the part, we've got a few movies to distract you this weekend:

On the Big Screen: "Salinger"
Shane Salerno's new documentary, which opens today, is filled with all the fun facts that your high school English teacher didn't tell you about J.D. Salinger. For example, the "Catcher in the Rye" writer had a thing for young ladies, didn't really enjoy sex, and likely had just one testicle. The movie divulges all kinds of secrets from the life of a guy who made being a recluse cool way before Lauryn Hill and mid-2000s Dave Chappelle.
