Movies Blog has moved! come with us to mtv news »

What in the world could J.K. Rowling's Pottermore possibly be?! We'll have to wait five more days to find out for sure, but for now, some new clues have emerged -- and it looks like some of our hunches hold some weight.

Entertainment Weekly reports that the Pottermore trademark was registered by Warner Bros. two years ago as a service that provides "multiple-user access to a global computer information network, [...] on-line chat rooms and electronic bulletin boards for transmission of messages among users in the field of general interest [and] on-line facilities for real-time interaction with other computer users concerning topics of general interest." So, it sounds like it is an interactive social networking experience, perhaps one that does include new stories and an MMORPG of sorts. Nothing definitive yet, sadly, but we're closer to cracking the code!

Alright, enough Pottermore (for now, not forever). Let's take a look at what else is popping around the movies blogosphere after the jump!

But there are quite a few other villains out there who are not as redeemable by the time their movies end. Here's a look at some of the most despicable bad guys in movie history, who we're sure will be keeping audiences terrified for years to come! Read More...

Jim CarreyJim Carrey has definitely suffered some setbacks in recent years, but it's a strange thing to see him having to complete with another comedic actor, or possibly be a second choice when it comes to casting. But that's what's going on with "The Beaver," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Kyle Killen's script for "The Beaver" has been one of the most buzzed about scripts this year. Centered around a man whose constant companion is a beaver puppet, it's drawing a lot of comparisons to "Lars and the Real Girl" and "Being John Malkovich." Killen's script even topped "The Black List," a collection of the best unproduced work kicking around Hollywood. Late last year, it attracted interest from Steve Carell and Jay Roach. Roach was loosely attached to direct Carell in the lead. Read More...
