FROM NEXTMOVIE: Comedy Central's "South Park" returns for its 15th season this week ... with, naturally, an episode making fun of Asperger's Syndrome. (It's entitled "Ass Burgers.")
The show's cutout animation may be simple, but Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny have become some of the most indelible characters in cartoon history.
So, naturally, we've always wondered how "South Park" creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker would have applied their signature style to some of our favorite movie icons. Our old mate Old Red Jalopy was up to the task.

Anita Lindblom, prepare to get the "Twilight" treatment under the hands of "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo."
Director Catherine Hardwicke will direct Noomi Rapace's as-yet-untitled biopic of '60s Swedish pop culture icon Anita Lindblom. To make things even more interesting, Rapace's real-life husband, Ola Rapace, will play boxing champion Bosse Hogberg who ends up marrying Lindblom.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Rapaces have been developing the flick for several years, and it's slated for a Scandinavian release in 2012.
In the news after the jump, "World War Z" loses its leads, a comedian joins Ben Stiller in "Neighborhood Watch," and Chris Rock teaches fathers "What To Expect When You're Expecting."
Things are going to get savage for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" star Mia Maestro.
The Hollywood Reporter has the news that Maestro, who plays new vamp Carmen in "Breaking Dawn," has joined the cast of Oliver Stone's latest "Savages." She will be playing Benicio Del Toro's wife in the ensemble flick. Taylor Kitsch, Aaron Johnson and Blake Lively also star in the drama.
In the news after the jump, find out who Will Smith is lining up to star in his Katrina drama, which "Breaking Bad" stars have films in the works, and who is attempting to adapt "The Giver."
Though "Horrible Bosses" stars Jason Bateman and Charlie Day might not have been up for any MTV Movie Awards, they still were a bit defensive about the way "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" swept Sunday's awards show.
"There's nothing but Brits," Bateman said. "Lots of Brits on stage."
Day agreed with Bateman's sentiments. "I think I'm up to 15 Brits, and why do we let them in here?" he deadpanned. "I mean, they win all our awards and they get all our acting jobs. You know, I could be a vampire. Not now, but 15 years ago."
Bateman seemed to doubt whether Robert Pattinson's accent was even real.
This is it, folks: show day has finally arrived! We've been waiting a year for it, and now the 2011 MTV Movie Awards, hosted by Jason Sudeikis, is ready to get into fill swing.
Sneak Peek Week has wrapped, the rehearsals have been finished, the exciting set pieces have been placed and now we're just ready for the celebrities to arrive and the party to get started.

If you had any doubts that this year's Movie Awards were going to be anything other than awesome, allow host Jason Sudeikis to put those fears to bed with one of the funniest "Twilight" explanations I've ever seen.
As far as I'm concerned, Sudeikis sold himself 100% during his appearance at last night's Sneak Peek Week presentation of "Horrible Bosses," his new comedy co-starring Jason Bateman. The topic of "Twilight" came up, as it inevitably does around this time of year, and Bateman confessed that he wasn't too familiar with the supernatural romance saga. Thankfully, Sudeikis was around to explain the series in a beautifully simple, astonishingly spot-on and wildly hilarious analogy: "Twilight" is just like "Star Wars."
Vampires and wizards haven't always been the closest of friends, and in recent years, the friction between the two supernatural sects has only increased thanks to a certain pair of blockbuster franchises.
Indeed, the war between "Harry Potter" and "The Twilight Saga" is raging on into the 2011 MTV Movie Awards — which launches this Sunday (June 5) at 9 / 8 PM central, in case you forgot, though we're sure you already made your viewing party plans weeks ago — as "Twilight" racked up eight nominations for "Eclipse" and "Potter" snagged six for "Deathly Hallows Part 1."
Only one franchise can walk away from this year's Movie Awards as the dominating property, but does that really answer which property is the best? We're not so sure — so to get some additional opinions, we surveyed your favorite stars to find out which movie series they like better.
