Because a day can't go by without some small bit of "Star Wars" news, today brings the tiniest news item of them all. NimbleBit, makers of the insanely addictive mobile game Tiny Tower will be releasing a new version called "Star Wars: Tiny Death Star." I've got a bad feeling about this...
...Specifically that the Star Wars themed game will be as fun and time consuming as the original, if not more so. Here's the official blurb from Disney Interactive:

Since "Breaking Bad" finished its run on Sunday, we've had plenty of other things to talk about: Miley Cyrus' stuff, some junk about the government shutdown or whatever, and of course, Spanish "Breaking Bad." Yet for some reason, people seem obsessed with talking about one of the most haunting, perfectly realized TV finales of all time.
Who are these people? Comedian Norm Macdonald, who seems set to continue our long national nightmare of fascinating and plausible "Breaking Bad" ending theories with one that posits... Well, spoilers after this point.
UPDATE: So maybe it wasn't official. Warner Bros. has removed the video. We will keep you posted if another version goes up.
Most of what we have heard about "Godzilla" from director Gareth Edwards, starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen and Bryan Cranston, has been hearsay from the lucky crowds inside Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con this year and last.
The 2012 SDCC audience got a look at a concept teaser that was made before the project even went into production and laid out the tone for latest look at the legendary monster. Lucky for everyone else, that teaser has just gone online in what appears to be the first move of a viral campaign.
All the way back in early September, an official copy of that video appeared over on a YouTube channel, Akira Watanabe, without anyone noticing, under the title "Fat Boy," a reference to one of the atomic bombs that the U.S. dropped on Japan during World War II. The legacy of that attack is felt throughout the piece.
Check out the teaser after the jump!
Of the sights Tolkien fans have been eagerly waiting to see in "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," Beorn might be chief among them. The enormous shapeshifter has always been a fan favorite, mostly because he's a huge guy that can turn into a bear if he wants, and he's been noticeably absent from the marketing campaigns, which has been surprisingly liberal with looks at Smaug.
Then there were the leaked photos from an officially licensed calendar that depicted Beorn as sort of a wild man meets 80s hair metal guitarist, and fans weren't exactly pleased, with most hoping that the early look didn't accurately reflect Beorn.
Now a new image of the Beorn has gone online (via TheOneRing.net), confirming the hairsprayed look for the character.
Take a look after the jump!

Super-sad about the end of "Breaking Bad?" Good news, then, it's coming back! In Spanish! Really!
The Spanish language remake of "Breaking Bad" – titled "Metástasis" – was announced a few months ago, but now we finally have a look at the weird, mirror-universe version that is the final product.
First, there's the classic shot of Walter White in his tightie-whities, except with Diego Trujillo playing Walter Blanco. (No, we're not joking.)
Any time that Joseph Gordon-Levitt makes a movie that he also stars in and that co-stars his "Angel in the Outfield" Tony Danza there are going to be a lot of questions.
That's why MTV News' Josh Horowitz sat the duo down at this year's Sundance Film Festival for the latest edition of the Yes/No Show.
During the game where they can only answer "yes" or "no," we discover the secrets behind "Angels in the Outfield," find out whether "3rd Rock From the Sun" was better than "Who's the Boss" and if Bane's voice had anything to do with Cobra Commander.
This week brought talk of new life for two dormant horror franchises. First, Ryan Turek of ShockTillYouDrop tweeted that producers of the new "Friday the 13th" are taking pitches from writers for a found footage version of Jason Voorhees. Concurrently, Harvey Weinstein is talking about a potential fifth entry in the "Scream" series to finally end the story.
The problem is — while we can't fully support any classic horror series making the leap to overplayed style — "Scream" would make a much more compelling found footage movie.
Everyone has seen "Halloween," "Nightmare On Elm Street," and "Friday the 13th" a million times. Throughout October, MTV Movies Blog will be spotlighting the best horror filmmakers working today, and we're kicking off our weekly profiles with Ti West, the writer-director behind "The House of the Devil," "The Innkeepers," and the upcoming "The Sacrament."
Ti West's "The Sacrament" just played for Fantastic Fest audiences in Austin, and Magnet Releasing has already scooped the film up for a theatrical run. The found footage tale centers on a group of investigative journalists who venture to a remote commune with the hopes of reuniting family members. There, they meet a charismatic figure known as "Father," and the trio witnesses the group's fanaticism run amok.
The previews for Kimberly Peirce's "Carrie" remake have pretty much just told us that it's a "Carrie" remake starring Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore. We've seen the crazed religious mother, the shower scene, and Carrie going to the prom with glimpse of the telekinetic aftermath to come.
What we haven't seen until now is an extended clip of the movie, which might show off the style that Peirce is bringing to the movie, instead of highlighting the best-known moments from Stephen King's first book, and in turn, the Brian De Palma adaptation.
Johnny Knoxville is taking on only one character in his latest film, "Bad Grandpa," but he's making it count with gags like the one we see in this new clip.
