Today in “brilliant ideas that only exist because people are awful,” the most popular movie theater chain in the world, Cinemark, has debuted a new app to dissuade moviegoers from texting during movies. Here’s how it works: when a movie starts, people are prompted to use the Cinemark app to put their phones into “Cinemode.” The program tracks whether or not the cell phone was used during the movie; if you’re a good little girl or boy and manage to watch an entire movie without texting your friends or updating your Facebook status, you’ll be rewarded with a discount coupon for your next movie ticket.

“I would put [the sex scene] the last day of the schedule, [and] say, ‘Listen, I’ve got to have a closed set. It’s really, really important. No one can see the monitors or anything,’ and then just put like a walrus in or something.”

Robert Pattinson responds to a question from BBC Radio 1 about what he would do if he were the director of “Twilight: Breaking Dawn.” Yep, he would use his new-found authority to add a walrus to the sex scenes. And this, ladies and gentlemen, is why we love Robert Pattinson. [People]

20 Non-Horror Movies That Are Absolutely Terrifying

I never watch horror movies because I am a total scaredy-cat and it doesn’t take much to give me serious nightmares (I slept in my brother’s room for six months after seeing “Scream” in middle school). But over the years I’ve found that even if you avoid the horror genre altogether, there are plenty of other terrifying movies lurking in the comedy, drama, adventure, and kids’ categories. If you’re looking for an unexpectedly scary movie to watch this Halloween, click through for 20 options, and please share other non-horror films that freak you out in the comments!

OMG Lizzy Caplan and Alison Brie!

I feel like romantic comedies are always about a woman who’s trying to get hitched, and a guy who’s resisting (except for, I guess, “Runaway Bride”). So I’m really excited for the new Lizzy Caplan movie, “Save the Date,” where — gasp! — she plays a woman who turns down her boyfriend’s proposal. Caplan was absolutely breathtaking in the pretty-much-straight-to-video “Bachelorette,” and we’re really excited to see her helm a film here. Plus, her boyfriend is played by Christina Hendricks’ real life boo, who we hear is a pretty funny guy. [NYMag.com]

We Want To Go To There: London’s Hot Tub Cinema

I love movies. I love hot tubs. I love champagne. I love rooftop parties. I love London. Hot Tub Cinema just happens to be a combination of all of those things, so obviously I want to get in on the action. For the past year, Hot Tub Cinema has been putting on rooftop hot tub parties where guests can sip bubbly, flirt with moviegoers in neighboring hot tubs, watch the sun set over the London skyline, and enjoy quality films such as “Anchorman.” I can think of worse ways to spend a September evening.

A History Of Onscreen Women And Abortion

Abortion has been a hot-button topic for years, but it’s been resurrected as one of the most talked about issues this election season with debates about Planned Parenthood and Todd Akin’s “legitimate rape” remark still ringing in our ears. The heated political and religious discourse on the issue of whether or not abortion should be legal has made it taboo in films and TV, so it’s not often that we see the issue honestly approached on screen. However, there have been some exceptions.

Without giving too much away, the dark comedy “Bachelorette,” out today, is one of those movies. In the film — starring Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, and Lizzy Caplan as high school BFFs reuniting for a girlfriend’s wedding— one of the characters opens up about an abortion from her teen years, and she even references one of the most iconic films about the same scenario, “Fast Times at Ridgemont High.” Let’s look back at some of the memorable female characters who’ve wrestled with the decision to end a pregnancy on screen.

So this movie “Bachelorette” just came out, and I’m so ambivalent as to whether or not I should see it. On one hand, I love (in no manner of order other than how they are credited on iMDB) Lizzy Caplan, Isla Fisher, Kirsten Dunst, James Marsden, Adam Scott, and Rebel Wilson. On the other, I heard that the movie itself is an abomination. On the other, other hand, I really want to see it, but will I regret wasting 91 minutes of my life? Therein lies the conundrum.

All internal battles aside, the stars looked just lovely on the red carpet at the premiere over the weekend. Winona and I agree that Kirsten slayed this Gaultier trench-inspired dress, which could have been a disaster on the wrong girl; Lizzy looked so good from the waist up that I’ll let her awkward-length slip slide; Isla was refined perfection in red lace Reem Acra. But I’m really feeling their individual approaches to makeup for the night — the three managed to look gorgeous and true to their own sensibilities without overshadowing one another. I think this calls for a special three-way edition, no? Keep reading »

Skrillex — Yes, Skrillex — To Star In A Remake Of “The Crow”

What fresh hell is this? It appears that wee Corey Feldman lookalike and dub step perpetrator Skrillex is set to star in a remake of “The Crow.” The cursed 1994 film starring Brandon Lee is probably as well known for Lee’s accidental on-set death as it is for being a cult-fave among comic book fans. There’s been four additional “Crow” films since the original, but most have been straight to video. Bradley Cooper was originally supposed to star in the remake, but dropped out. So now Skrillex is set to star in the film, despite the fact that he’s got no prior acting experience, so obviously this is going to end really well. [Mix Mag]

UPDATE: According to a rep for the studio we spoke with, they have not offered the role to Skrillex and have yet to cast anyone in the remake. Phew.

Let’s talk teen idols. I was born a few years after “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” came to be, but that didn’t stop me from idolizing the hell out of Sloane Peterson. The fringed white leather jacket! Those doe eyes! That cavalier side-part flip! She was, and continues to be, the coolest. I wonder almost every day what Mia Sara is up to. I’ve actually thought about tracking her down, calling up Matthew Broderick, and showing up on her doorstep together in full movie regalia, but what do you know, our friends over at Stylelist beat me to the punch! Unsurprisingly, she’s still a total babe (so choice, in fact), and I still totally want to be her. [Stylelist]
