All awards shows have their inherent level of unpredictability, but none of them come close to the blissfully unbridled randomness that goes down every year at the MTV Movie Awards. Sure, everyone usually singles out the Golden Globes as the one awards show where anything goes, but we beg to differ. Think about it: has anyone at the Globes ever dropped from the rafters and planted their bare ass directly on the kisser of an unsuspecting audience member? Of course not. MTV Movie Awards = 1, Golden Globes = 0.
In celebration of the sheer lunacy that only MTV can muster at an awards show, we at NextMovie have concocted the MTV Movie Awards Drinking Game. After all, this isn’t the Oscars, and no one is expecting the best behavior from anyone in attendance, let alone those of you viewing at home. In the spirit of the craziest movie awards show on basic cable, we urge everyone who’s up to the challenge to raise a glass filled with their beverage of choice and remember this: the moment K-Stew flashes an emotion on-camera even somewhat reminiscent of happiness, it’s bottoms-up for you. Happy hangover! Get More »
With "42" opening this week, we here at NextMovie are reminded of how we used to collect packs of baseball cards and store them in shoeboxes. (People still do that, right?)
So here we proudly present our own line of movie baseball cards -- recreations of actual vintage card designs that highlight some of the baddest batters and hurlers from the big screen. Print 'em, trade 'em, put 'em on your wall. Bubblegum not included.

Love him or hate him, you have to admit one thing about Charlie Sheen: The guy is pretty damn entertaining.
The man who stole the 2011 media spotlight from every other celebrity with his bizarre behavior and madcap yammerings is currently making a comeback on the big screen, continuing this weekend with his turn in "Scary Movie 5." If the trailers and clips are any indication, Charlie doesn't do much in the movie beyond hang out in bed with Lindsay Lohan — which is, of course, just fine. Get More »
Behold, the comedic genius of Will Ferrell.
We're not just throwing that term around lightly, you know. Will Ferrell is actually an official Comedic Genius, or at least he will be when he's presented with the "Comedic Genius" award at this year's MTV Movie Awards.
Not convinced of Ferrell's comedic genius? Check out the Ferrell Wheel below to see the many hilarious — and, in many cases, endlessly quotable — characters he's created over the years.

Sheesh, Raptors — do you have anyone you can talk to about your little self-control problem?
The dinosaurs in the "Jurassic Park" movies sure do kill a lot of people (and sometimes dogs and toilets). But which dinos had the highest levels of prehistoric hunger/bloodlust? Our infographic reveals which of the beasties proved Dr. Ian Malcolm's Chaos Theory of "Nature will find a way" the most. And by "will find a way" we mean "will destroy you."

"Jurassic Park 3D" hits theaters this weekend.
Robert Redford is a national treasure, one that's been part of our pop culture consciousness since his on-screen acting debut in 1960 as Jimmy Coleman on an episode of "Maverick." Since then, Redford has appeared in dozens of feature films and conjured the most popular and powerful American film festival — in Park City, Utah, of all places.
The Sundance Kid may not be a kid any more, but he shows no signs of slowing down as he prepares to unveil his latest directorial effort, "The Company You Keep," this weekend and make his Marvel debut in next year's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." Here's a look at Robert Redford throughout the ages, from his young and handsome years to his, well, old and handsome years.

After months of speculation on the casting of "Star Wars: Episode VII" – will the "original 3" appear? And in what capacity? Will they look all old and stuff in it? – the very first cast photo has emerged from the upcoming Lucasfilm/Disney collaboration, and it's a whopper.
What this so-called "family portrait" does tell us: Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher are indeed returning, along with a coterie of young Hollywood stars best known for their previous work on The Disney Channel – including Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and The Jonas Brothers -- playing kin to Luke, Han and Leia.
Purists may scoff at this "Disneyfication" of the "Star Wars" universe, but hey, no one can deny the resemblance those moppy-haired Zack and Cody bear to Luke Skywalker in his formative years.

Just because you're a movie star doesn't necessarily mean you're going to survive past the first reel. Get More »
The marketing team at Focus Features apparently hasn't noticed that "The Place Beyond the Pines" has one of the most good-looking casts of this movie year -- or any other, for that matter. Why struggle with how to sell Derek Cianfrance's latest multi-layered mopey melodrama when you can just embrace the age-old practice of Truth in Advertising? This isn't rocket science, people.
The most honest (or most shameless, however you want to look at it) approach is usually the most effective. Compare our poster to the original and tell us which would get more asses in the seats.
Young Adult Fiction is all the rage in cinema right now. True, "Twilight" and "Harry Potter" have made their final bows, but in their place has come a maelstrom of successors, including "The Hunger Games," "Warm Bodies," "Beautiful Creatures," "The Host," and the upcoming big-screen adaptations of "Divergent" and "The Mortal Instruments."
Most of these stories are seen through the eyes of a young heroine, and with all of these yarns sharing similar elements of romance, fantasy and conspiracy, keeping track of all the distinctive details of each leading lady and their respective heroine's journeys can be a daunting task indeed. In the interest of simplicity and at-a-glance organization, NextMovie's own Nick DeSantis (artwork) and Amanda Bell (stats) have conjured this handy chart to help in keeping all the ladies in line — literally.
