"Twilight" fans know the movie is going to be huge. But Hollywood big-shots aren't usually motivated by the same squealing, giddy impulses as the rest of us, and we're going to have to wait until the box-office numbers come in before real talk on a "New Moon" movie begins.
That's got to be hard for someone like Taylor Lautner, who knows that his best scenes as Jacob Black are yet to come. When I spoke to him about his upcoming gig as a presenter at the VMAs with Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, I asked if he had to try not to think too much about the sequels.
"As much as you try not to, you always do, because you're like, 'Oh my gosh, that would be so much fun and so cool,' " he said. "But nothing's confirmed yet, so I try not to get my hopes up too high."
In David S. Goyer's newest film, "The Unborn," a young girl is terrorized by an ancient spirit, an entity that is trying to get back into our plane of existence and be born again.
In an article we just published we took a look with Goyer at how that spirit, taken from the Hebraic legend of the dybbuk, influenced his film's nightmare logic and dream imagery, how he purposively left it unexplained to be more frightening.
Well that -- or to save for the sequel.
These days, life is good for Terence Stamp. He gets to play the villain in "Get Smart," everywhere he goes people want to kneel before Zod, and when I caught up with him recently, he was kicking back in a pair of pink Crocs.
"I've got 'Yes Man' coming up with the great Jim Carrey. Tom Cruise and I were blowing up Hitler for a long time in Berlin for 'Valkyrie,'" grinned the tireless 69-year-old. "And, I got to say good morning to Angelina Jolie at 7 a.m. every morning on 'Wanted'."
Now, as that bullet-ridden action flick is getting ready for release on June 27th, Stamp is eager to drop a bombshell of his own: The filmmakers are already talking sequel. Read More...
Recently, Corey Feldman sat down for an extended chat with MTV News to discuss "Lost Boys: The Tribe", the sequel to the 21-year-old cult smash that helped define his career, as well as premiere the film's first trailer.
But if you're geeking out at what Part II has to offer, wait'll you get a load of what Feldman has in store for Part III, the actor teased, citing huge "potential" for the story to continue in a trilogy of films. Read More...
Considering it was an adaptation of an 18-year-old television show, "The Simpsons Movie" has to be viewed as a somewhat surprising success. Given that success, though, it should be no surprise that they're already working on a sequel.
"I think a fun format for the next 'Simpsons' movie would be a 'Treehouse of Horror' feature," voice star Hank Azaria offered. "That might be fun. It'd be fun to do three fantasy or horror stories."
Whether that's the path the filmmakers ultimately go down remains to be seen, of course. But Azaria's got another suggestion he feels much more adamantly about. Hank Azaria demands, well, more Hank Azaria. Read More...

Suck. Suck. That's about all we've heard out of Maggie Simpson for the past 18 years, but as fans of the yellow-skinned family will remember, during the end credits for last summer's "The Simpsons Movie," Maggie removed her ever-present pacifier, and delivered a word that left us all drooling.
So, what's preventing Hank Azaria, Yeardley Smith, Nancy Cartwright, Julie Kavner and Dan Castellaneta from "D'oh!"-ing it up on the big screen again? A stinky situation that has been terrorizing TV shows and movies alike, and it's got nothing to do with "Spider-Pig." Read More...
