Posters: News Stories Not Coming Soon to Theaters

With the timely releases of "Zero Dark Thirty," "Margin Call," "The Social Network" and "Game Change," Hollywood has been trending toward turning recent news stories into movies as quickly as possible. The trend continues this month with both "The Fifth Estate" (the WikiLeaks movie) and "Captain Phillips" (the, uh, Captain Phillips movie) hitting theaters.

Hollywood isn't catching every news story, though. We conjured posters for eight news items that probably won't be coming to a theater near you any time soon.

Posters: 'N Sync Members in Justin Timberlake Movies

Justin Timberlake has danced his way into quite the Hollywood career, with charming turns in "The Social Network," "In Time," "Trouble With the Curve" and this week's "Runner Runner," in which we're supposed to believe that he can't afford his college tuition (and that he's young enough to be in college, but we digress).

But why is Justin a movie star and not the other members of his former boy band, 'N Sync? We have a feeling that Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick and JC Chasez possess untapped acting potential that Hollywood would do well to exploit before, you know, 'N Sync gets back together.

With that in mind, we've conjured a few posters from an alternate universe in which every member of 'N Sync got to be in movies. They didn't record an album called "Celebrity" for nothin', you know.

Our Fake 'Gravity' Poster Rockets Space Puns At Speed Of Light

Alfonso Cuarón's "Gravity," the story of two astronauts (Sandra Bullock and George Clooney) set adrift after flying space garbage destroys their shuttle. It's a heavy story of astronomical proportions.

To celebrate the release of "Gravity," we've put together a stellar new poster for the film, a final frontier of puns. If you're not into this sort of thing, we're sorry to punish you, but just admit laughed. Get More »

George Clooney's Resume: How He Got to Space

Gravity Warner Bros.

On your morning commute you may have noticed posters for "Gravity" — featuring George Clooney's helmeted head floating through the majesty of outer space — and wondered, "How did that dude land such a sweet gig?" One word: Experience.

Clooney may be a god among men, but he has to submit his resume for jobs just like everyone else, and getting to star in Oscar-bait opposite Sandra Bullock isn't for greenhorn thesps. Get More »

INFOGRAPHIC: The Definitive Hollywood Family Tree

Hollywood: it can feel like a nepotistic, incestuous place. Probably because it is. Generally, movie-type people tend to hitch up with other movie-type people, make smaller movie-type people, and leave you to sort out who's related to who and who just happens to share a last name.

So, for your convenience, we've made some handy charts to keep your famous family trees straight. Is that crazy super-conservative Baldwin related to that crazy super-liberal one, and just how many brothers are there? Those Wayanses can't possibly all be related, can they? Find out below.

Infographic: Celebrity Kickstarter Campaigns

Sylvester Stallone recently made headlines for becoming the latest in a seemingly endless parade of rich movie stars coming to the Internet hat in hand to get some of that sweet sweet Kickstarter cash. The crowdfunding site has been a magnet for celebs looking to fund oddball projects the studios are gunshy on (a la David Fincher's animated comic book adaptation "The Goon") or to obtain greater creative control through fan-supported cashflow, like Zach Braff's controversial Kickstarter campaign.

Imagining the 'Seinfeld' Movie Posters: Part II

Last month through a series of fake movie posters we answered the question you've no doubt been asking yourself for the last 15 years: What if someone took the stars of today and cast them in the hilarious made-up films mentioned on "Seinfeld"?

And while the reception was hugely positive, a few fan favorites didn't quite make the cut, resulting in cries of "What about 'The Pain and the Yearning'?" and "How could you forget 'Firestorm'?" being heard across the Internet.

But worry not, insatiable Seinfeld geeks — your requests haven't fallen on deaf ears. Here are the remaining fake Seinfeld movies cast with your favorite Hollywood stars.

The First (Totally Un)official Poster for 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

We came one step closer to the long-awaited film adaptation of "Fifty Shades of Grey" becoming a reality earlier this week with a bit of casting news: namely, that Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam will be getting busy as the lead characters, Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey.

The next step? A poster, of course, whether it's official or not. Here's our take on the film's highly anticipated one-sheet ... and you know all that gasping and bumping and grinding is going to be in IMAX 3D.

Infographic: Hollywood's Wealthiest Directors

Steven Spielberg & George Lucas NextMovie

SPOILER ALERT: A-list movie stars are rich. Very rich. It's a highly visible part of the job, with private jets, opulent mansions and designer clothing seemingly stuffed into celebrity mailboxes along with their royalty checks.

A topic not highlighted nearly as often, however, is the wealth of many film directors. Maybe it's because directors sit behind the camera instead of in front of it that they have the ability to largely eschew the media's financial spotlight. However, don't be fooled: many directors' paychecks are comparable to (and in some cases even dwarf) their thespian counterparts. Get More »

‘Spinal Tap’ Vs. Actual Music Documentary Cliches

Spinal Tap vs. One Direction MGM / Sony

Watching "One Direction: This Is Us," the latest in a long line of self-promoting pop-docs, often feels like an endless exercise in déjà vu. The dramatic in-your-face performance footage, the playful “candid” glimpses of Niall, Zayn, Liam, Harry and Louis goofing off backstage and even the tears of pride shed by their proud parents all seem like they were cribbed directly from tour documentaries of yore.
