'Tyler Perry's Temptation' and 25 Movies That Sound Like Perfumes


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 »

Most Effed Up Spells in Witch Movies

Warner Bros. Warner Bros.

In "Beautiful Creatures," Lena Duchannes traipses into the damp, small town of Gatlin, South Carolina with the sole intention of remaining a good witch. There are those in her lineage who want nothing more than for her to join the dark side upon turning the dreaded age of 16, but the gal's got eyes for a little human boy named Ethan and just wants to play nice, for crying out loud.

Most of her predecessors in cinematic spell-casting, however, were not quite so noble. In fact, a lot of them would just do some downright effed up stuff. Let's review some of the worst. Get More »

Chloe Moretz: I'd Rather Be a Vamwitch

GALLERY: Eva Green Draws Us to the 'Dark' Side

Agent 007 sure knows how to pick 'em.

Eva Green was the Bond babe in "Casino Royale" who stole our hearts with that smoldering glare alone.

The raven-haired beauty switches it up with a retro blonde hairdo in "Dark Shadows" as Angelique, a magical temptress who just wants Johnny Depp's Barnabas to fall for her. Barnabas turns her character down harshly, so she gets revenge by cursing him to be a vampire. Ouch, but seriously, who would turn this lady looker down?

Check out our gallery of the French femme fatale's best looks and try to withstand her bewitching beauty.

Johnny Depp in Dark Shadows
Warner Bros.

Oddball director Tim Burton continues his association with mancrush Johnny Depp in "Dark Shadows," their eighth collaboration together.

Based on the late-'60s TV soap opera of the same name, the story follows 200-year-old vampire Barnabas Collins (Depp) as he awakens in the 1970s to find his family on the verge of ruin. This campy take on the cult series should be ghoulish fun in an "Addams Family" vein.
