Eva LongoriaSeth Green has been a prolific tweeter of photography this year, and I wish we had some kind of award to give him. Instead, he gave us all something marvelous yesterday in the form of a picture full of ninjas. Jon Favreau, meanwhile, gave us a trailer from his new movie "Cowboys & Aliens," which succeeded in achieving trending status today.

Between "Cowboys & Aliens" and "Green Lantern," there's a lot of movie hype flying around this week. "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" should still be fine, though, even if it does give Seth MacFarlane some wild ideas about Joaquin Phoenix. Find out what he's been contemplating after the jump, along with who thinks he might have a shot at dating Eva Longoria now that she's filed for divorce.

Tom FeltonThe "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" premiere last night must have been a fun time if you had a seat inside. Tom Felton and Warwick Davis both came away tweeting pleasant things about the experience, though Davis might have preferred a different seat.

Milla Jovovich, meanwhile, still has a while before she needs to think about showing up for her "Three Musketeers" premiere. She did reach her final day of filming, though, and knows exactly what she'll be doing next. You'll find her enthusiasm down below, listed with retweets from Seth MacFarlane and Damon Lindelof reacting to Harrison Ford, as well as David Slade's meditation on the death of Dino De Laurentiis.

Emma Watson at Harry Potter premiereYou may not be able to attend the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" premiere in London, but a handful of folks in the Twitter-Wood feed received invitations and shared what they were up to en route.

Another traveling tale that showed up today came from David Slade, who happened to see someone watching a pirated version of his movie "Eclipse" on a plane. You can check out how he felt about that after the jump, as well as what Duncan Jones and Edgar Wright had to say about the passing of "Blue Velvet" producer Dino De Laurentiis... and how Jim Gaffigan views Veterans Day.

To be fair, "some dude" is actually Karl Pilkington, star of the Ricky Gervais/Stephen Merchant-produced UK TV series, "An Idiot Abroad." I haven't seen the show, but the premise apparently involves sending Pilkington on a globe-spanning adventure designed to take him "out of his comfort zone."

None of that has anything to do with today's Daily TwitPic, other than the fact that Gervais is among those pictured. The headline pretty much nails what's worth advertising here though. Warwick Davis, the star of "Willow" and a noted actor in various "Star Wars" and "Harry Potter" movies, wants to give his pal Ricky some orange juice. Pilkington, who in an apparent inside joke has an orange-shaped head (I suppose it is rather round), is Davis' obvious target. I don't see any OJ leaking out. It doesn't matter. The picture is ridiculous. Read More...

NCAA college football re-entered Twitter-Wood this weekend, and though the Boise State game last night dominated posting, Marlon Wayans sounded off today about news that Reggie Bush could be stripped of his 2005 Heisman Trophy.

Revelations abounded as well. Milla Jovovich announced which Thundercat character she'd love to play on the big screen (her choice should shock no one), while David Spade and Dax Shepard both came clean with their feelings on "Machete," and it doesn't sound like they agreed. Find out who you side with after the jump, where some photo posts from Quinton Aaron and Eli Roth have also been included.

Here at MTV, we've long hoped for a sequel to "Willow." Luckily, we're not alone, as actor Warwick Davis has told us multiple times that he would love to follow through on "Willow 2," a sequel to his 1980s fantasy flick from George Lucas. While we're not necessarily closer to a second "Willow," Davis has designs on the next best thing: a reunion between the wand-wielding wizard and Val Kilmer, the erstwhile Madmartigan!

Let's back up a bit: during the grand premiere of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, MTV's Josh Horowitz sat down with Davis and discussed "Life's Too Short," the actor's developing BBC mockumentary from "The Office" co-creators Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.

"I have a much bigger ego in the series," he told MTV of the exaggerated version of himself at the center of the show. "The kind of personal life I have in the series is quite different from my real personal life. I do talk about being in 'Star Wars,' 'Harry Potter' and 'Willow.' [My character is] obsessed with 'Willow' to the point that they're going to have to make 'Willow 2!'" Read More...

Toy Story 3Did "Toy Story 3" frighten you? Well, one notable director got the heebie-jeebies from it, and his identity may surprise you. In the meantime, director Lee Unkrich posted a shot of Woody as he might have looked in the film if circumstances had been different.

Everyone in "Eclipse" is probably very satisfied with things just the way they are in regards to their movie's performance. Ashley Greene in particular had to share how she feels with everyone. You can see her audience shout-out after the jump along with what Olivia Wilde did for July 4 and who got to sit on Ricky Gervais' lap.

The new "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" trailer has a lot to pick apart, but Warwick Davis hopes that you didn't miss him in his two incarnations as Filius Flitwick and Griphookwhile you were taking it all in.

And speaking of taking it all in, the "Eclipse" cast is doing just that this week. Both Gil Birmingham and Tinsel Korey tweeted about what they've been up to promoting the film, though Birmingham may now be going by the name Felix. You can find out what that's about after the jump along who wanted to wish Ray Harryhausen a happy birthday.

Whether or not it ends up being called "A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas," "Harold and Kumar 3" has begun filming, according to writer to writer Jon Hurwitz's tweets today. His movie will follow in the footsteps of other third-chapter films, such as this weekend's box office monster "Toy Story 3." That film's director posted a shot of one of his favorite fans, while actor Nathan Fillion believes the movie may have been the beginning of a very successful date night.

In other posts, Tom Felton and Warwick Davis appear to have had a grand time at Universal Orlando's Wizarding World of Harry Potter over the weekend. Felton even posted a TwitPic from the experience. You can check that out after the jump along with Damon Lindelof's Snooki vs. Sookie question, and picture of Snooki's biting technique, which may answer his question.
