Cats: They're such divas. Adorable, adorable little divas. They rule our world, so why not the cinematic one?
We obliged our feline friends by reimagining eight movies — with the aid and inspiration of our Twitter followers — starring cats instead of humans. Really, we can only dream of such cinematic purrfection.
The first one out the gate? Why, "The Great Catsby," of course. F. Scott Fitzgerald concluded that the pursuit of the American dream could only lead to a dirty litter box at best, after all.
There's a movie coming out this week called "Tyler Perry's Temptation." It has nothing to do with any personal temptation of Tyler Perry himself — it's a movie he directed called "Temptation," but it's Tyler Perry, so his name's in the title.
But it sounds more like a perfume than a movie, right? According to futurist Ray Kurzweil, there's a 37.6% chance that there will be a perfume called "Tyler Perry's Temptation" by 2018.
That got us thinking: What other movies out there could be perfumes? Here are 25 that you could spray on your neck and wrist before a night out. Get More »
Mila Kunis has it all — she can act, she's gorgeous, she's funny and she's even willing to make out with other hot chicks.
The petite beauty bounds into theaters this weekend in "Oz: The Great and Powerful," in which she plays a certain green-skinned villainess who may have had a lot to do with your childhood nightmares. "I'll get you, my pretty — and your little dog, too!"
As she's quite the super-sexy treat, this Mila Kunis edition of our Hot People Looking Hot galleries should prove pretty darn tasty.
Sometimes, two ladies make out with each other in major motion pictures. Other times, they not only make out with each other — they simulate sexual intercourse with each other. AND because the Internet exists, each of those instances is easily accessible to everybody with a computer, context-free. I know, right? And some people claim to be "pessimists?" (laughs to himself.)

Everyone was young once: your teachers, your bosses, your parents. And in Hollywood, the land of movie magic, not only were your favorite fictional characters once children, they were all young at the same time.
We know, it doesn't make sense. But what other conclusion could we draw from this, a page from the Hollywood Movie High School yearbook? It features future VIPs like Bruce Wayne and Elle Woods before they hit the big time, Nina Sayers before she donned the Black Swan's feathers, Anton Chigurh before he grew out his bangs in "No Country For Old Men."
Hollywood Movie High School Rules!
You like "Home Alone." Heck, you may even claim to love "Home Alone."
But do you love it enough to ink a tribute to Joe Pesci into your skin, permanently?
They say that beauty is skin-deep, but there's no adage for how deep fandom goes. These 25 hardcore fans of movies from, yes, "Home Alone" to "Black Swan" proudly display their devotion on their bodies in the form of intricate ink.
Scroll on to see, and tell us in the comments how you would pay body art tribute to your favorite flick.
1. 'The Dark Knight'
Actress-turned-mother Natalie Portman is returning to work for the first time since nabbing the Best Actress Oscar for "Black Swan" and going on maternity leave. The brunette beauty has officially signed on to join not one, but two upcoming films by writer/ director/ savant Terrence Malick.
The first, a drama entitled "Knight of the Cups," begins shooting this summer and also stars Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Isabel Lucas, Deadline reports.
After that comes "Lawless," a musical drama (we're not sure what that means either) whose cast includes Rooney Mara, Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale, Haley Bennett and Cate Blanchett (one of Malick's favorites, clearly). This second feature is slated to shoot this fall, immediately following "Knight of the Cups." Get More »
In "The Woman in Black," Harry Potter himself (or rather, Daniel Radcliffe) takes on the darker side of the supernatural as he investigates a haunted estate and the dark history that brought one of its former residents back from the grave for revenge.
The "Woman" of the title is kind of a pain in the butt, what with all the murdering and all; but not every similarly clad woman is quite so gloomy. Some of our favorite filmic females have donned a dark look for some memorable roles, no doubt bolstered by the fact that black is slimming.
As Wesley Snipes said in "Passenger 57": "Always bet on black."
It’s an elite group that Rooney Mara is about to join. As Noomi Rapace did before her, Mara, playing "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," will take a spot in film lore as one of the very few female lead characters sporting major body art.
Usually, on-screen tattooing signifies toughness, edginess and a certain amount of invincibility, qualities that Mara’s character, computer hacker Lisbeth Sander, has in spades.
With the dragon tattoo itself being a key part of the murder mystery story, here's a look at some other top body artistry in movies -- mostly sported by heavily muscled and bare-chested bad guys. We think you’ll agree that some of the imagery is practically museum-worthy.
The sound of Hogwarts is apparently music to Grammy's ears.
Even if the last "Harry Potter" adventure doesn't manage to conjure up some halfway decent Oscar nominations, we can at least rest assured that Grammy is a fan of "Deathly Hallows - Part 2." The film has been nominated in the category of Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media, along with "Black Swan," "The King's Speech," "The Shrine" and "TRON: Legacy" (go Daft Punk!).
"Burlesque," the movie that teamed up Cher and Christina Aguilera, managed to score two nominations: one for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media ("Tangled" was the only other film nominated in this television-dominated category) and another for Cher's "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me," which was nominated for Best Song Written For Visual Media.
