Want to see an advance screening of Universal’s upcoming comedy “Pitch Perfect”? We’re giving YOU the chance to watch the movie next week! The first 10 people to RSVP to the screenings available in each city (New York, Los Angeles-area, and San Francisco-area) will get First In Line passes for themselves and a friend (so 20 passes per city are up for grabs). But move quick, because the tickets will go fast and once 10 people have RSVP’d per city, that screening will close! So, RSVP here, print out your tickets, and don’t forget to arrive at least 30 minutes before the screening.
About “Pitch Perfect”: Beca (Anna Kendrick) is that girl who’d rather listen to what’s coming out of her headphones than what’s coming out of you. Arriving at her new college, she finds herself not right for any clique but somehow is muscled into one that she never would have picked on her own: alongside mean girls, sweet girls and weird girls whose only thing in common is how good they sound when they sing together, in the new out-loud comedy “Pitch Perfect.”

A second “Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2″ trailer debuted last night at the MTV VMAs, revealing how the budget for creepy contact lenses in this second movie was through the roof.

Over the weekend, I went to a brunch screening of the John Cusack classic “Better Off Dead.” I’ve seen it about a zillion times before — isn’t it the best? — but I’d forgotten about the New Year’s Eve dance scene. In it, Cusack and pals go to a school dance where E.G. Daily sings the titular song. E.G. Daily, you might recall, is also in the movie “Valley Girl,” and is just the best. Her performance reminded me of several other of my favorite real bands and singers performing in movies. Click through to see 9 more faves…

Channing Tatum must be some kind of time traveler, because he seems to put out more hot movies than the rest of Hollywood combined. This year alone he’s already headlined three of Hollywood’s biggest surprise hits, “The Vow,” “21 Jump Street” and “Magic Mike.” So he’s probably ready for a well earned vacation, right?
Nah, of course not. Instead, he’s got a brand new trailer for yet another movie coming out this fall, “10 Years.” Read more…
