Popcorn's great and all, but there's just something super-tasty about movie-inspired cakes.
As film bakery is a real thing these days, there are gobs upon gobs of delicious designs all over the place as many talented maestros are generous enough to pretty up the world with photos of their scrumptious gumption.
We like to recognize the creative ways people celebrate their various degrees of infatuation with the cinema, so we went through the painstaking (read: tummy grumble-inducing) process of scouring the interwebs to pluck the very best in show for these Tinseltown-inspired treats ... just in time for "The Big Wedding," opening April 26.
Grab a bib before you dig into these 25 ridiculously well-designed desserts, 'cause it's pretty much a guarantee you'll be drooling all over the place by the end of this list.
25. 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs'
This delectable dish makes us sure the eighth dwarf would be named "Hungry."
Ready to have your mind blown, children of Disney's classics?
First of all, you know how Tinkerbell and Alice and Maleficent and all those were flitting around, doing their melodic little dances of whimsy and whatnot? Yeah, well, to help the animators capture those moments in cartoon form, there were sets of real-life performers who acted the various scenes out for reference. Seriously.
For example, do you remember the Mad Hatter watch scene in "Alice In Wonderland"? Kooky as that fella was, a vaudeville star named Ed Wynn played out the scene first.
It's pretty good in human form too, no? Get More »
It's Halloween night. Do you know what movies your children are watching?
It wouldn't be the most wonderful holiday of the year without a double- or triple-feature of scary movies to go with the tricking and treating. While there are plenty of R-rated slasher flicks to please big brother and sister in the other room, there are also a fair amount of PG-rated spookfests that provide good, clean fun (and scares!) for the under-13 crowd in the basement.

We know what you're thinking: Surely Disney has made more than 50 movies, right? And it's true, they have. But if there's one thing Disney knows even more than animation, it's how to protect their brand, which is why they've designated some of their features to be official classics and others -- like "The Jungle Book 2" or "Pete's Dragon" -- to be, you know, just something they do on the side for giggles and grins.
It's nice when you have a bazillion dollars for your next feature film, but, more often than not, you have to stick to some sort of budget (sigh) and shelling out $20 million to one star on set isn't exactly a good start. (Sorry, Leo.) But don't despair. Just find yourself an actor who gives you the best bang for the buck.
Financially speaking, of course.
We here at NextMovie are expecting the new comedy, "Your Highness" to be a big ...hit. This joint venture between Danny McBride, James Franco and Natalie Portman looks like the kind of bud picture that will definitely be packing a specific audience into the theaters. Okay, in case you haven't been catching all the subtle puns -- it's a stoner movie -- with dragons.
Finally! Of course, there's a long Hollywood tradition of fantasy characters who may have been stealing a puff between scenes. Well, today we're smoking them out. Here are nine fantasy characters who must be high... Get More »
The Oscars might be the night of the stars, but the Costume Designers Guild Awards is the night for the folks who make those stars look so damn good.
The 13th annual event, hosted by the ever-polished Kristin Davis at the iconic Beverly Hilton, honored both established designers and some newer talent, The Hollywood Reporter recounts.
Taking home her sixth award, Colleen Atwood won for her fanciful "Alice in Wonderland" costumes in the fantasy film category. Get More »
We scour the interwebs for the coolest movie news and more so you don't have to...
• The world of Panem is coming to the silver screen, and "Hunger Games" enthusiasts have been salivating over every detail of the film's production, especially which actress will win the coveted role of Katniss Everdeen. Hollywood Crush has a poll for all you "Hunger Games" fans to make sure your casting opinions get heard -- it's so good, we'll even forgive them for leaving out our favorite, Lyndsy Fonseca.
• It felt like some sort of bad dream when Christopher Nolan didn't snag a Best Director nom for the breathtaking "Inception," but James Cameron kicked us back to reality by proclaiming that Nolan got royally screwed. "I wish Chris Nolan had gotten nominated for directing that film," Cameron told The Hollywood Reporter. Get More »
Vampires, organ transfers, and "special friendships" between James Gandolfini and Kristen Stewart!?
This week's new releases in DVD and Blu-Ray include "Let Me In," "Never Let Me Go," and "Welcome to the Rileys." And Brigitte recommends watching this remix by Pogo to get pumped for watching the new release of Disney's animated "Alice in Wonderland" on Blu-Ray!
Search for your favorite film trailer on YouTube and you may be in for a disturbing surprise. More and more frequently, the makers of fine pornography everywhere have taken to churning out elaborate reproductions or "parodies" of Hollywood films.
These movies can be dead ringers for the originals, only the action has been replaced with...a different kind of action, and the acting has been replaced with...truly awful acting. We must admit: The trailers for these instant classics are fascinating, not for the sex (which is absent in the trailers) but for the way they earnestly strive for allusive respectability. Get More »
