The lovely and talented Lake Bell has been a mainstay of film and television for over a decade, stealing scenes in films like "No Strings Attached" and on television series such as "Childrens Hospital" and "How to Make it in America."

We had an exclusive 1-on-1 with Bell to discuss shooting a film without bathrooms, girl talk during life or death situations, her directorial debut "In a World ... " and her continuing quest to one day play Wonder Woman. Get More »
Greetings from the apocalypse! The trouble with Tribbles is not how cute they are but how much they multiply, or in the case of "Star Trek Into Darkness," the silly plot point for which they cameo.

'cause there are crazy people out there. And because the trailer shows you the entire movie anyway.

The 2012 Sundance Film Festival is over, and film industry types and journalists have returned home with a pretty good idea of what the indie scene will look like this year.
But what about you, dear reader, who didn't get the chance to play in Park City and mingle with bundled-up celebs? Have no fear. Our intrepid NextMovie Sundance team braved long lines, snow drifts, crowded screenings and press junkets to bring you the 20 films we loved at Sundance this year -- and that may soon be coming to a theater near you. -- By Todd Gilchrist, Jason Guerrasio, Jenni Miller and Nigel Smith
"Like Crazy," "Take Shelter," "Martha Marcy May Marlene," "Pariah." What do these films all have in common? They all premiered at last year's Sundance Film Festival. To say that the bar was raised for this year's edition to deliver the indie goods is an understatement.

Just take a look at some of the talent included on the lineup: Kirsten Dunst, Andy Samberg, Elizabeth Olsen, Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana, Kate Bosworth and director Spike Lee. Now that's enough reason to get excited.
We've worked our way through the massive lineup to bring you our picks for the top 15 films we're most excited for. Get More »
