Big Screen Breakout Roles: 17 A-Listers & The Movies That Put Them On The Map

Before stars were stars, they had to climb the Hollywood ladder just like everybody else.

19 Things You Need To Know About “The Fault In Our Stars”

Seth Rogen Discusses A Groundbreaking New Concept: A Movie Wife That Likes To Have Fun

"My wife read the ["Neighbors"] script. She's a writer. She's one of the people who was like, 'This isn't how it would be. We get along, I want to have fun too...' And then as we started talking about it, that actually became the most exciting idea of the movie to us, that we could…

“Heathers” Is Now An Off-Broadway Musical

The oh-so-beloved 1980s movie "Heathers" is now a musical. I'll wait for a moment while you squeal with glee (at least, that's how I'd react if I were you). Rumors that "Heathers" would be headed to the stage, along with several incarnations of the production, have made the rounds these past few years.

Would You Watch A Documentary About Blogging?

Filmmaker Christopher Wiegand drove all over the United States interviewing bloggers (mostly of the "mommy blog" variety, it seems) about why they do what they do, and I'm cautiously curious. As someone who is a bit infatuated with the land of blogging -- I even wrote my thesis on it! -- I'd like to see…

Watch This: Celine Dion Finally Reveals Her Muppet Crush

I can't believe I still haven't seen "Muppets Most Wanted." Not only does it feature all my favorite Muppets, it's got two of my favorite comedians, Ricky Gervais and Tina Fey, and a cameo from my favorite singer of all time, Celine Dion. Life dream status. Anyway, while doing press for the movie,…

Watch Jennifer Lawrence Dance Her Heart Out In This Deleted “American Hustle” Scene

Remember when Jennifer Lawrence manically cleans the house while singing "Live And Let Die" in "American Hustle"? Well, she also filmed a scene singing to "Evil Ways" by Santana.

Slurping Soda During A Movie Is An Even Bigger Problem Than We Thought

We all know those loud moviegoers who obnoxiously slurp on their sodas, text, and shout to one another throughout the whole film. Apparently, Coke does too, and used their latest ad to edit those oh-so-rude audience members right into the film. The audience thought they were just seeing a normal movie, and their surprise at…

“Fargo” Is Going To Be A TV Series — And Trailers Have Arrived!

The 1996 Coen Brothers movie "Fargo" is coming to the small screen next month, and FX has released teaser trailers!

It all started as a joke, as so many brilliant performance art projects do.
