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!

Between the breathtaking battles of "300" to the stunning superheroics of "Watchmen" (and, one has to imagine, his upcoming flight with "Superman"), there's very little debate that Zack Snyder knows his way around a fight scene. Perhaps that fact has never been more clear than in "Sucker Punch," his surrealist action thriller about a psychiatric patient who dives into a combat-driven fantasy world in an effort to escape the horrors of her reality.

Throughout "Sucker Punch," leading lady Emily Browning and her harem of heroines go toe-to-toe against some truly grisly bad guys. But perhaps Browning's most fearsome foes are the 10-foot tall Samurai cyborgs that bring all of their firepower to bear upon the comparably miniature young woman, armed with only a sword and a handgun to defend herself. It's an adrenaline-pumping, pulse-pounding sequence that never lets up for a minute — and now, thanks to an exclusive clip from the "Sucker Punch" Blu-ray, Snyder himself is here to take you through the anatomy of that Samurai showdown. Click the video below and watch for yourself.

"Sucker Punch" arrives on DVD and Blu-ray today (June 28).

Love is a drug, and it's one we're getting addicted to in this exclusive clip from "Sucker Punch," which arrives on Blu-ray and DVD next Tuesday (June 28).

MTV News has an exclusive first look at the dance sequence within Zack Snyder's latest. The sexy scene shows a whole lot of seductive dancing between Blue (Oscar Isaac) and Vera (Carla Gugino) to the tune of "Love Is The Drug." Cut into that cabaret-like sequence are shots of Rocket (Jena Malone), Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish), Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens) and Amber (Jamie Chung) strutting their stuff on the stage while Baby Doll (Emily Browning) hangs in the background.

James BondFinally, James Bond is actually coming to a theater near you some day soon, thanks to an agreement reached by Sony and MGM.

Deadline was the first to post a press release announcing that Sony is distributing "James Bond 23" alongside MGM, and that they're already looking at "Bond 24" as well. We're hoping this means we'll be seeing MGM's "Red Dawn" and "Cabin In The Woods" through Sony as well, though nothing is official yet. In exchange, MGM will co-finance several Sony pictures, including David Fincher's "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo."

After the jump, find out which unreleased robot movie already has a sequel in the works, the line-up for Cannes and what "Fast Five" director Justin Lin has to say about his "Terminator" plans.

The first six minutes of Zack Snyder's latest have hit the Internet, and they're definitely something of a sucker punch.

Against a narration that speaks of silent guardians and angels, the opening minutes of "Sucker Punch" show how leading lady Emily Browning ends up at Lennox House mental institution. In true Snyder tradition, there are copious amounts of awesome music -- a remix of Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams" -- and slow motion used in the best possible combination.

After the jump, check out the first photos of "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," find out which Hollywood actors are turning gangster and learn the first details of the "Transporter" TV series.

Zack Snyder's long-awaited cinematic mind-trip "Sucker Punch" finally hits theaters today. At the center of the story are five women, all of them inmates at the fictional Lennox House for the Mentally Insane. They're also exotic dancers, and ass-kicking warriors as well. The film's most intense action unfolds in a sort of fantasy reality. The less said about it here, the better; what you need to know is that each of the five Lennox inmates get to show off their particular talents during these sequences.

To get you in the mood for today's release, we've profiled each one right here on MTV Movies Blog all week. We've already highlighted Amber (Jamie Chung), Rocket (Jena Malone), Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish) and Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens). Today we look at the last of the ladies, Babydoll, played by Emily Browning.

Warner Bros. has released a whole slew of new photos from the upcoming "Sucker Punch," revealing our clearest looks yet at Jon Hamm and Vanessa Hudgens' characters in the movie. Seeing the erstwhile Don Draper in evil nerdy-glasses mode while Hudgens taps into her promiscuous side? Yeah, it's safe to say that we're hooked on "Sucker Punch" already!

Of the new "Sucker Punch" photos, there were five that really got us in a tizzy for the flick. Click on after the jump to see Hamm, Hudgens and a whole host of badassery from the upcoming movie!

Sucker PunchThere's not too much, still, that’s known about Zack Snyder's "Sucker Punch," and that's a large part of what makes the film so exciting to us here at Movies Blog. Much like "Inception" in 2010, it's the parts we don't know about the film -- how do those multiple realities work together? Why are there zombies and samurai and dragons? -- that keep us so intrigued.

But as the March 25 release date looms ever closer, the biggest question is how are Snyder and Warner Bros. going to sell the film to an audience that hasn't been following the tiny nuggets of plot details that have slipped out over the past few months. If you watch the trailer from that perspective, it might look pretty (it didn't make our list of the best 2010 trailers for nothing) but it might not make much sense, either.

Enter the first "Sucker Punch" TV spot. It includes much of the footage shown in the full-length trailer but still maintains the same amount of questions raised by the summer's teaser. The solution to the problem of selling it to a wide audience seems to be, like with "Inception," to let the questions of what is real and what is imagined drive the hype.

Kristen StewartWith Amanda Seyfried featured in the upcoming adaptation of "Red Riding Hood," could Kristen Stewart be the next actress to accomplish every young girl's dream and, quite literally, step into a fairytale? That seems to be the talk surrounding the "Twilight" star and Universal's buzzed-about action-adventure, "Snow White and the Huntsman."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 20-year-old's name keeps cropping up at Universal.

In fact, while other actresses have already screen-tested for the latest adaptation of the classic (including, among others, Stewart's "Runaways" co-star Riley Keough, "Sucker Punch" actress Emily Browning, and Felicity Jones, whose "Like Crazy" was a Sundance breakthrough), the studio seems anxious to make it Stewart's first project after "Breaking Dawn" wraps up.

We've had our own thoughts on who should snag the coveted role as Snow White in director Rupert Sanders' modern day take on the Brothers Grimm tale, but a post-"Twilight" Stewart could be more than enough of a draw for Universal to call off the search for any other actresses.

Whether or not Stewart goes from Bella Swan to Snow White, she would certainly be in good company. The project has already had big names like Johnny Depp (for said Huntsman, natch) and Charlize Theron (in talks to play the evil queen Ravenna) thrown into the ring. In fact, THR also reports today that Viggo Mortensen is eyeing a role (likely the Huntsman) in the film.

Do you think Kristen Stewart would make for a good Snow White?

Just this week, Warner Bros. released the official plot synopsis for director Zack Snyder's "Sucker Punch," and the online outlets lucky enough to visit the film's set last year were released from embargo to share their experience. So it only makes sense that a kick-ass, full-length trailer has now hit the Interwebs. If you have any knowledge of the film's premise, the trailer definitely fleshes out some of the elements of the plot we've learned this week... but even if you know squat about the movie, this bad boy will knock your socks off.

There's definitely much more exposition in this trailer than this summer's teaser. We see Baby Doll (Emily Browning) lose everyone she loves and get tossed into a mental institution for murdering the man she blames. Read More...
