Catwoman

Halle Berry's "Catwoman" has been the butt of jokes since it premiered in 2004, but how many people out there have actually seen it? Not many apparently, because it took one Redditor to point out that the movie contains the single worst basketball scene in the history of film.

If "Catwoman" had been seen by the throngs that openly mock it, this scene would be better known and add a ton of fuel to the fire of fanboy hatred. Still, even nine years on, the sequence which features Berry and Benjamin Bratt doing something that could never be mistake as a "game" or "fun," plays like anything but a game of one-on-one basketball. It looks more like you showed two people a 15-second clip of a middle school game, and told them to do something vaguely similar and make it all look like a bad '90s music video.

You can watch the abomination for yourself after the jump!

The obvious talking point when it comes to "Cloud Atlas" is the many transformations the actors make to fit within the interweaving stories on the screen. Some are less extensive than others, but some change Halle Berry into an old Korean man.

That transformation in particular earned the highest marks from her co-star, Jim Sturgess, when MTV spoke with the cast.

"I think Halle had some of the biggest transformations. She played an older person, she played a man that was Korean. I remember having to have a conversation with her while we were shooting that scene," Jim Sturgess said.

"Cloud Atlas" isn't a movie with a strong elevator pitch. It's not "this one things meets something else." There's a lot going on, that's for sure, but the people involved in making the movie have to know how to explain what the hell is going on, right?

Well, maybe.

MTV News headed out to the press day for "Cloud Atlas" to see if the cast could summarize the movie in one sentence. Tom Hanks probably wins for the most creative answers, while Susan Sarandon pulled the best quote from the trailer.

See how each cast member did in the video above!

"Cloud Atlas" opens in theaters on Friday, October 26.

Cloud Atlas

As the raves roll in for "Cloud Atlas," the latest effort from the Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer, it may all seem a bit overwhelming if you haven't seen the multi-storied mash-up of races and genders. It's all a little confusing to the common outsider. What does appeal to everyone, however, is seeing Halle Berry as an Asian man. That's something just about everyone would be interested in seeing.

In the latest behind-the-scenes featurette for "Cloud Atlas," the actors at the center of this craziness share their experiences on set and how playing multiple actors shaped the making of the film.

It's a fascinating watch even if you have no interest in seeing the film. There's certainly something unique and different going on here that is hard to ignore.

Check out the featurette after the jump!

Cloud Atlas

"Cloud Atlas" wowed audiences with its first preview, an extra long trailer that took its time introducing the six, interconnected stories. Now a new theatrical trailer boils that down and focuses on the theme that will run throughout the movie.

The topic was partially covered in the recent New Yorker profile on the Wachowskis (which is definitely worth a read). As you've probably heard, the actors in "Cloud Atlas" will play different characters throughout the separate stories, each having some tenuous, and maybe spiritual, connection to the rest of the film.

The whole thing looks stunning, so you should definitely take a look at the full theatrical trailer after the jump!

Cloud Atlas

It turns out that we won't have to wait until October to see the many different characters in "Cloud Atlas."

Warner Bros has launched an official website for the upcoming Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer movie, and it features the various faces that stars Halle Berry, Tom Hanks, Jim Broadbent, Jim Sturgess and Hugo Weaving wear in the film. We only saw them teased in the extended trailer that was released in July, and now we get to see them in their full glory.

Cloud Atlas

The Wachowskis are sure to take us on one interesting ride when "Cloud Atlas" hits theaters on October 26, and now we finally get a tease at what that ride will look like.

Entertainment Weekly has some new looks at the project that tease some of the storylines that are present in the movie. One image features Tom Hanks and Halle Berry in a sci-fi plot from the film, while another shows Jim Broadbent and Ben Whishaw in one comedic story offshoot.

Up until now, we've only seen spoiler-free photos and concept art that don't give us much of a sense of the movie. Adapted from David Mitchell's 2004 novel of the same name, "Cloud Atlas" will weave together six different storylines that take place over many time periods for one overall narrative. Similarly challenging is the way that the Wachowskis had each of their stars play different characters in each of the six storylines. If you couldn't tell, we're excited for this movie.

You know that feeling when you're watching a shark movie and you find yourself thinking, "I love this shark movie, but I wish there were more Academy Award-winning actresses in it"?

We know that feeling all too well. That's why we're very excited to present this exclusive clip from "Dark Tide," a new deep water thriller starring Halle Berry. In "Dark Tide," Berry plays Kate Mathieson, a woman who has made a name for herself by swimming with great white sharks. When she falls on hard times, she's forced to take a job she doesn't want to, escorting a wealthy amateur to swim with the deadly beasts without a cage.

In our exclusive clip, Kate drives her boat out into the open water with her client and his son in tow. With the help of a trusty seal-shaped lure, the crew attempts to attract some attention from the great whites in the area.

"Dark Tide" will be available on VOD on March 8 before it heads to theaters on March 30.

Lindsay LohanIt's summer movie season, which means horror fans have sun, surf, and killer fish on the brain. We've been bringing you tons of "Piranha 3DD" news – because life just doesn't feel complete without it – but this week's best in horror updates also skinny-dips, battles sharks (and some invisible sea creatures), and heads to Venice, California.

Movies like "Hobo With a Shotgun" and "Machete" have breathed new life into the exploitation subgenre, and "Skinny Dip" is upping the ante with a great cast that includes Sasha Grey, badass Danny Trejo, and now Pam Grier, Michael Madsen, and Brigitte Nielsen. Meanwhile, Halle Berry is battling sharks in "Dark Tide," but the cast of "Sector 7" has to deal with a transparent monster on board their ship. There's a vampire on Venice Beach that wants to take a bite out of you. No, it isn't Lindsay Lohan, but she's dressed to kill for a new bloodsucking photoshoot that "Buffy" star Sarah Michelle Gellar would probably put a stake to.

It's all in this week's Horror Bites after the jump.

The cast of Garry Marshall's upcoming ensemble romcom "New Year's Eve" has grown so big, from now on, we're just going to report on who isn't going to be in it. For instance, Tom Hanks is not cast in it. Neither is Kristen Stewart. And neither is Britney Spears.

Give it a week; we're sure one of them will have signed on by then.

But since we aren't here to report non-news (most of the time), Seth Meyers and Jon Bon Jovi have joined onto the cast. The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop on Bon Jovi and Meyers' characters and how they fit into the larger celeb-packed plot.
