Two more Hollywood ladies are ready to take their turns behind the camera, Mr. DeMille.
Both the oh-so-hilarious Melissa McCarthy and little Ellen Page have now signed up for their directorial debuts, and while their projects (and, uh, personalities) are pretty distinct, they do have one thing in common: trippin'!
No, we're not talking about a pair of LSD bender flicks here. Instead, both women's films involve their female protagonists leaving the homestead to discover a little somethin' somethin' about themselves. Get More »
That's the premise behind the new trailer for "I Give it a Year," which begins with the usual romcom ending — Rafe Spall and Rose Byrne's characters get married — and dives into the not-so-happily-ever after they are left with.
They may be giving it a year, but they'll also be giving you a laugh. Get More »
This week: Sacha Baron Cohen plays a North African dictator who comes to America in the joyfully offensive comedy "The Dictator," also starring Anna Faris and Ben Kingsley.
Also new this week is 50 Cent teaming up with Robert De Niro in the crime thriller "Freelancers," the award-winning Iranian drama "A Separation," the Disneynature documentary "Chimpanzee" and the Blu-ray debut of "Good Will Hunting" with Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. Get More »
Like many, you got up and left the theater just as the credits began to roll on "The Dictator." Little did you know that a few of the funniest scenes in the movie came after its grand conclusion. But, worry not: here's what you missed.
In the hilariously subversive new comedy, Sacha Baron Cohen continues a run of indelible, Peter Sellers-like character immersion (following "Borat" and "Brüno") with his latest mad creation: Admiral General Shabazz Aladeen, leader of the fictional North African oil-producing Republic of Wadiya.

No joke! Comedienne Anna Faris is pregnant with her first child.
The "Dictator" star and her "Moneyball" hubby Chris Pratt confirmed the news to People, via her rep. While this is a big step forward for the couple who've been married nearly three years, it should come as no surprise. Get More »
Anna Faris may be the reigning queen of the romantic comedy, but that doesn't mean she can get downright cynical about love. Variety reports that the "What's Your Number?" actress is teaming up with "Bridesmaids" star Rose Byrne for the Working Title rom-com "I Give it a Year."
The movie, written and directed by "Borat" helmer Dan Mazer, tells the story of a pair of quirky newlyweds, played by Byrne and "Prometheus" star Rafe Spall, as they navigate their first year of wedded bliss. Get More »
Hollywood might be the land of dreams, but the Oscars are the night of fashion — and in an industry in which everyone's a critic, it comes as no surprise that we've got a few opinions on some of the more (ahem) questionable choices of the night.
We know it may be hard to imagine that some of the most stunning people on the planet, clad in some of the world's most coveted labels, could manage to look anything less than perfect, but a handful of stars who walked this carpet have proven that it's possible. Trust us.
So how does one land on our worst dressed list for the Academy Awards? While there's no surefire way, there are a few cardinal sins to avoid, including (but not limited to) long sleeves, dressing inappropriately for one's age, and, last but not least, playing it way too safe. Check out the gallery to get up close and personal with these fashion misses — and take notes in case you ever find yourself at Tinseltown's biggest night. (Hey, it could happen!)
Everyone knows blondes have more fun. Right? Has anyone ever really researched this, or did someone (a blonde, we're betting) just make that up and say it enough times that eventually people accepted it as truth?
Well, wonder no more, because we've done some (very scientific) research -- and things are looking up for ladies with tresses from chestnut to chocolate and everything in between. So as Katherine Heigl prepares to hit the big screen as a brunette in "One for the Money," we at NextMovie have compiled our own list of Hollywood golden girls who have dabbled on the dark(er) side.
This week, Brad Pitt makes a pitch for Oscar gold in "Moneyball," Jason Statham teams up with Robert De Niro and Clive Owen in the action flick "Killer Elite," Anna Faris revisits her exes to see if any of them are worth another go in "What's Your Number?" and the heartwarming "Billy Elliot" dances on Blu-ray for the first time.

They say the U.S. doesn't make things anymore -- that we've lost our way and are no longer No. 1.
Well, "they" are wrong. No country on Earth is capable of producing the quantity, quality and quantity of idiots that our fair land churns out with alarming regularity.
Affable favorite Paul Rudd continues the proud tradition of representing our country's most common commodity in "Our Idiot Brother," nwe on DVD and Blu-ray this week. But can he be stupid enough to join the ranks of elite morons, or does he still have a few more brain cells to kill? Let's review his imbecilic competition. Get More »
