Nicholas Sparks has a well-deserved reputation as the master of the romantic drama, thanks to films like "The Notebook" and new release "Safe Haven." Last year's movie "The Vow" has everything you would expect from a Nicholas Sparks film: hot actors (Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams), a wife in a coma, lingering amnesia and the joy of love rediscovered. Just one thing -- somehow, amazingly, Sparks didn't actually write it.
Yeah, we're surprised, too. So in honor of "The Vow," we hereby present our list of the Top Five Movies You'd Think Were Written by Nicholas Sparks. Get More »
Hey guys, remember the movie "Air Force One," where terrorists kidnapped the president and he had to kick their asses to show that America is still number one? Well, imagine if that movie had combined with "Die Hard" and been set inside the White House rather than on an airplane, and you've pretty much just seen the entire new trailer for "Olympus Has Fallen."
But hey, at least this one has Morgan Freeman in it. That's got to be worth something, right? Get More »
Christopher Nolan's Batman series will reach its zenith this weekend when the capper on the trilogy, "The Dark Knight Rises," blasts its way into the geekosphere.
All you need to do to rise to the occasion is to have watched the previous two films, "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight," about a thousand times like we have… or simply read our easily absorbed recap below.
Think of it as Reader's Digest, but with more grappling hooks. Get More »
And she acts to the music of Fleetwood Mac.
The "Up in the Air" star has signed on to join Aaron Eckhart in "The Drummer," the biopic about Beach Boys drummer Dennis Wilson, according to Variety.
Vera Farmiga will play the role of Christina McVie, the notable singer-songwriter and member of Fleetwood Mac. "Hold Me," the hit single from Fleetwood Mac's 1982 album, "Mirage" (and one of the most popular music videos of the early days of MTV), was reportedly inspired by McVie's passionate and tumultuous affair with Wilson that went on from 1979 through 1981.

Even though "The Killer Elite" proved to be less than action movie royalty, that's not going to stop a woman with the hotness of Yvonne Strahovski's magnitude from burning up the silver screen on a regular basis. Now that her run on NBC's "Chuck" is nearly up, Strahovski is looking to engage in more creative pursuits, like helping to patch together "I, Frankenstein."
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Aussie blonde will co-star in the action-horror flick as "a scientist working on reanimating the dead and tricked into working for demons seeking to create an army of the undead." That's particularly evil since those demons know creating an army of monsters is against union protocol. Get More »
In case it isn't obvious (which it is), movies based on graphic novels are so hot right now.
And it seems Aaron Eckhart might just have a thing for these somewhat, err, eccentric roles. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the blue-eyed thesp, who's probably most famous for playing Two-Face in "The Dark Knight," has been tapped to star in the upcoming drama "I, Frankenstein," based on the graphic novel by Kevin Grevioux — who also happens to be the co-creator of "Underworld." Which means you just know it's going to be good. Get More »
It's about time Peter Pan jumped (or flew, rather) onto the bandwagon of Hollywood's newfound interest in fairy tales.
Nicole Kidman hasn't exactly had a bad run since winning her Oscar for "The Hours" back in 2002. In fact, she's done some of the best work of her career over the past few years in films as varied as "Margot at the Wedding," "Fur," "Birth," and "The Interpreter." But for some reason Oscar hasn't been biting, likely due to the cold, divisive nature of the films.
All of that is likely about to change once Academy voters get their eyes on her heartbreaking performance in "Rabbit Hole," which premiered back at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, and is now gaining lots of traction as an awards front runner. Get More »
In 2008's mega-blockbuster 'The Dark Knight,' Aaron Eckhart played Two-Face, a champion of virtue who is disfigured and left with one face that is pure and a second scarred face that is evil. But today, in an interview with MTV, Eckhart showed a third face -- his sad face.
That's because, despite the pleas of fans and Eckhart himself, Two-Face will not be returning for the third of director Christopher Nolan's Batman films, 'The Dark Knight Rises.'
"Chris and I had a meeting, on the beach, just the two of us," Eckhart told MTV. "I said, 'Chris, a lot of people are asking me if I'm in the next 'Batman.' And Chris said, 'Yes?' I said, 'Am I?' He looked at me and he said, 'No.' "
Of course, that opens up the question of just what Nolan is going to do in 'The Dark Knight Rises,' not to mention exactly what the heck prompted a secret beach meeting between the two. If you want the full scoop, we suggest you bop over to MTV and read the whole article to find out the deets.
Just be ready to display your own sad face at the answer.
Seems like every cynical New Yorker's dream is about to come true: Los Angeles is gettin' all blowed up by aliens!
Columbia Pictures just dropped the shiny new trailer for its big budget sci fi flick "Battle: Los Angeles" on Apple Trailers, and it promises all the carnage and destruction a growing boy or girl needs. The film features Aaron Eckhart, Michelle Rodriguez, and the incredible Michael Peña (all fans of "Eastbound and Down" know he loves to racism, bro). Get More »
