Superman's secret identity may come as a bit of a shock. Watch Now »
Harry Potter may be the Boy Who Lived, but any hardcore "Potter" fan knows the true heart of Gryffindor House is Harry's bumbling friend Neville Longbottom. As "Potter" readers already know -- and those lining up for the final installment of the movie series will soon learn -- "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2" is Neville's chance to shine, as the dumpiest soldier in Dumbledore's Army unleashes jaw-dropping feats of bravery and heroics.
Meeting Matthew Lewis, the actor who portrays Neville, is a bit shocking; there's no trace of the disheveled kid wizard in Lewis' grown-up appearance. Once we've regained our composure, NextMovie asks the 22-year-old actor (sans Neville's paunchy belly) what he'll take from the "Harry Potter" experience, where he'll go with it -- and what he remembers most about humiliating himself on set.

Chris Columbus only directed the first two "Harry Potter" movies -- a gig he snagged after his friend Steven Spielberg passed on it -- but he was responsible for the most important decision in the entire franchise: casting Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint.
Columbus vacated the director's chair after 2002's "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" to spend more time with his own four children, though he produced the third installment, "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban," directed by Alfonso Cuaron.
With the final film premiering in Los Angeles on July 11, NextMovie asked Columbus – the only American "Potter" director, how he felt about the end of the franchise he launched. Get More »
Can you even imagine Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow without his hat, jewels, headband or guyliner?
We can't either, which is why we're making sure anyone can recreate the look with a few easy pieces from "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" detailed in our latest Get the Goods gallery.
Every guy in the world knows mermaids are super-hot, even if we can't quite figure out how compatible the whole "the birds and the bees" thing is when it comes time to hit the sack. Eh-hem.
All scaly tails aside, though, these sexy sirens of the sea are some of the most enchanting creatures of ancient folklore, and have wriggled their way from the ocean depths to the movie screen on more than one occasion. Whether they're the benevolent mermaids of "Peter Pan" or the nasty maneaters of "Harry Potter" or the new "Pirates of the Caribbean," these half-lady/half-fish hybrids have been a source of male fascination for centuries.

Number one reason why most people see "Pirates" movies: Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow. Lasses want him, and lads want to be him.
But the key to getting some action after seeing "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" is to indulge not so much your inner but outer Captain Jack.
Get ready, 'cause this might be the most physically challenging date for which you've ever set course -- but follow our dating guide and the booty shall be yours. Get More »
Sam Claflin is one of the few actors who seems as genuinely charming offscreen as he is on-screen in "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" (opening everywhere May 20). In the fourth "Pirates" adventure, the 24-year-old Brit plays Philip Swift, a brave young missionary who falls for and tries to protect a beautiful mermaid while Captain Jack (Johnny Depp) and company search for the Fountain of Youth.
So is Claflin closer to missionary or mischievous in real life? "There are elements of both in me," he says. "During my high school years, I was always the kid trying to break up the fights. I enjoy drinking—I don't mean to sound like an alcoholic—but I enjoy an exciting life. That's not to say that Philip doesn't lead one, but there are probably things that he won't do that I would."

As you set sail aboard Disney's brand-new fourquel "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," you will see many old friends returning, including Captain Barbossa, Mr. Gibbs, and, of course, the one-and-only Jack Sparrow ("I believe there should be a 'Captain' in there somewhere.")
However, unlike the previous trilogy of pirate jaunts, this latest trip following in the footsteps of Ponce de León is something of a stand-alone adventure, including many fresh faces both good and evil, alive and undead, and all as duplicitous as a slippery snake.
How can you tell one greasy Pirate from another? With our handy guide, that's how! Get More »
If our navigator is correct, we're clearing the fog and sailing on a direct course for the much-anticipated May 20 launch of Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides."
Before we rejoin Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush (along with newcomers Penélope Cruz and Ian McShane) in their ever-vigilant quest for treasure, treasure, and more treasure (also: The Fountain of Youth), we thought it best to give our fellow shipmates a little primer in the previous trilogy of pirate epics.

After we brought you the summer's 10 biggest movies in LEGO form, we thought we wouldn't be talking about our favorite childhood toy for a least another few months.
Then we saw this.
MTV has faithfully and painstakingly recreated the trailer to "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" with LEGOs, complete with mermaid waters, Blackbeard and sneers from unshaven, grizzled faces. The level of detail involved in this is somewhat scary. Get More »
We swear on Davy Jones' locker, we're bigger fans of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise than anyone. But some of ye scalawags are freaking us out with your intense fandom.
We appreciate a good tattoo -- be it a classic anchor, the ol' skull and crossbones or...maybe another classic anchor. But a few of the "Pirates"-themed tats we're seeing around the internet are on stranger tides, if you catch our drift. Here are some of the most amazing "Pirates of the Caribbean" ink jobs. Beware, all who venture forth... Get More »
