Jessica Chastain — you go, grrrl!
The Oscar-nominated star of "Zero Dark Thirty" trades her trademark red mane for a short jet-black 'do (complete with accompanying tattoos) for her goth punk turn in "Mama," the Guillermo del Toro-produced frightfest about a rather, shall we say, over-protective ghost.
Jessica's new look has us wanting to start a band that only covers Sex Pistols songs ... and gather some pics of other hot punk rock chicks in flicks. Fight the power and get clickin' through our gallery.

What — you were expecting a tribute to Peter Dinklage, Warwick Davis and Verne Troyer?
We don't mean Little People with a capital L and P, but "little people" — those adorable under-10 scene-stealers who've made the movies they were in unforgettable by their presence. From Jackson Nicoll in Nickelodeon's new teen comedy "Fun Size" all the way back to Drew Barrymore in Steven Spielberg's classic "E.T.," here are 13 young characters we adore.
Dakota Fanning can now check "music video star" off of her bucket list, because she's front and center in the newest clip from British singer Ellie Goulding, which features Fanning as a terminally ill teen trying to cram as much life as possible into her last remaining days.
So when should you check out the video for "I Know You Care?" Well, "Now Is Good." Get More »
The "Twilight" gang has stayed plenty busy since launching straight into the cultural zeitgeist four years ago, and some of the franchise actors have had much more luck than others when it comes to scoring impressive and interesting roles.
One nabbed an Oscar nom, two had films in competition at Cannes this year, and another headlines an exciting new J.J. Abrams series this fall. Others have endured critical and box office flops, straight-to-DVD blunders and yes, even a Razzie "win."
Until this weekend, though, none have stretched their legs into new series territory -- but Kristen Stewart really puts her box-office muster to the test as she moves from the damp world of Forks into the clutches of Ravenna's evil queen-dom for "Snow White and the Huntsman." In celebration of her second franchise bid, we take a look at what all of the "Twilight" kids have been up to since first making their mark on modern pop culture not too long ago.
They may be brothers and sisters in real life, but in the acting world, sibling actors are often fierce competitors. Sometimes they're even up for the same roles.
You could call these cases of sibling rivalry being played out on the big screen a real family affair, along the lines of "Mom always liked you best."
We've come up with a list of top actors who have competing brothers or sisters. Vote on your favorites of each brother-brother, brother-sister or sister-sister pairing -- and may the best siblings win. Get More »
There are roughly seven months until our next (and final) Twi-hard fix, with "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" dropping in November. I don't write that to bum you out. It's more of an embrace-the-day statement. Appreciate these seven months of build-up because in all likelihood, these will be your last (unless you've already started obsessing over "The Hunger Games").
That said, let's get excited for summer movies season -- the season that's no longer just about blockbusters and indies that aren't good enough for award season (although it's still mostly that). When it comes to summer films starring "Twilight" actors, we're lucky enough to get two apiece from Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson; and these hot months will also feature appearances from Dakota Fanning, Ashley Greene, "Eclipse" alumnus Xavier Samuel and my imaginary girlfriend Anna Kendrick.

That was fast. It seems like overnight Dakota Fanning went from the penultimate child star to… young lady bravely facing death? Guess in the movies, anything is possible.
The trailer for big sis Fanning's latest flick, "Now Is Good," features the starlet as 17-year-old Tessa, a charming girl who is dying of leukemia—and enlists the help of a young man (played by the absolutely b'dorable Jeremy Irvine) to help her knock out her bucket list before she dies… which doesn't give the duo much time.

Three of Hollywood's freshest faces — Dakota Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen and Anthon Yelchin — are in final talks for lead roles in "Very Good Girls," which will mark the directing debut for longtime screenwriter Naomi Foner.
The coming-of-age story follows two lifelong best friends (Fanning and Olsen) during the summer after their high-school graduation when both girls are determined to become women by losing their V-cards before the leaves change.
It's all fun and games until the ladies fall for the same boy (Yelchin, in case that wasn't obvious) — at that point, it's less fun, and more… emotionally scarring. But hey, that's part of growing up too, right? Get More »
I'm over a week late, but Happy New Year, Twi-hards. I hope you all had a great time covering yourselves in glitter and playing pin-the-tail on the R.Pattz, or whatever it is you choose to do on New Year's Eve.
Last year during this time, I urged you to make the resolution to watch more "Twilight" because "Eclipse" was only No. 4 in the 2010 box office numbers. Sadly, you didn't listen to me. "Breaking Dawn - Part 1" came in fifth in 2011, behind even "Kung Fu Panda 2." C'mon, people! That's just sad. Resolve right now to make "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" top the 2012 box office numbers, like the last installment of "Harry Potter" did this year. We can't lose to those Pot-heads ... again.
Enough with the browbeating, it's time to look ahead at an exciting year for "The Twilight Saga" cast. Not only will they be completing the best movie franchise of all time, but they'll be flying out on their own with new, more adult projects. Here's a look into their future. Get More »
Dakota Fanning and Emma Thompson are about to make some costume designers very happy.
The "Twilight" actress and former Hogwarts professor have teamed up for "Effie," a Victorian drama set in 1850s London, according to Deadline.
"Effie" chronicles the loveless marriage between Euphemia Gray (Fanning), a beautiful teenage socialite, and John Ruskin (Greg Wise), a famed critic who, despite his wife's extreme beauty, was disgusted by her physically and never consummated their five-year marriage. After much humiliation and browbeating by her in-laws, Effie fell in love with with Ruskin's protégé, painter John Everett Millais (Tom Sturridge). Get More »
