Random House

What happens when "The Lorax" scores the biggest opening of 2012 to date (and took the #1 box office spot in its second week as well)? You start planning for more Dr. Seuss movies, that's what!

However, Universal and Illumination Entertainment aren't turning to "One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish," "Green Eggs and Ham" or even "Oh, The Places You'll Go!" for their next animated Seussian adaptation. They've got their eye on what might be the most popular Seuss story of all time (next to "How The Grinch Stole Christmas"), "The Cat in the Hat," according to Deadline. Get More »

Universal

If you're into irony then you'll appreciate this weekend's box office results, as Hollywood.com is reporting that "Dr. Seuss' The Lorax" destroyed the competition with an amazing $70.7 million to take first place.

Just imagine how many trees they had to cut down to print that much money.

"The Lorax" wasn't the only new movie surpassing expectations, though, as the teen comedy "Project X" brought in $20.8 million en route to a second place finish. So how did returning hits like "Act of Valor" and "Safe House" fare? Head over to Hollywood.com for the full scoop. And don't worry: No trees were harmed in the making of this report.

GALLERY: 'Lorax' Lady Taylor Swift Goes Green and Stays Red-Hot

Taylor Swift has luscious golden locks, a few Grammys to her name, and now she can say she taught Zac Efron how to play guitar.

The pop/country sensation could easily be the most hated girl in America if she weren't so darn lovable. Who hasn't belted out one of her songs with the windows rolled down in their cars? She's held her own against a slew of exes and Kanye West, and that deserves major respect.

In "Dr. Seuss' The Lorax," Taylor voices treehugger Audrey whom Ted (Zac Efron) is trying to woo with his environmental ways.

With Taylor's double whammy in March in "The Lorax" and her "Hunger Games" soundtrack contribution, "Safe & Sound," the girl is off to a great 2012. Why not celebrate her greatness with a Hot People Looking Hot gallery?!

But please, no teardrops on any guitars.

Seuss Things Up a Notch With 6 'Lorax' Clips

The Lorax
Universal

Admit it, Dr. Seuss made your childhood magical. But did you know that the beloved author also had a secret tree-hugger agenda? That's right, Seuss loved the environment (that bastard!) and he proved it by writing "The Lorax" which, first adapted into a 1972 TV special, and is now a major motion picture hellbent on turning your children into conscientious people.

The movie version of Seuss' tale follows a young kid named Ted (Zac Efron) who lives in Thneed-Ville, a totally artificial city with no sign of nature in sight. To impress older girl Audrey (Taylor Swift), he sets out to find a real, genuine tree and winds up befriending the tiny orange creature the Lorax (Danny DeVito), former guardian of the land.

50 Upcoming Book-to-Movie Adaptations

Water for Elephants
Fox

Since the beginning of time, books have been a conduit of learning, a cornerstone of human communication and, most important of all, the primary source for awesome movies.

Just check out the new Robert Pattinson vehicle "Water for Elephants," based on Sara Gruen's bestseller, if you don't believe us -- only a true literary genius could have ever dreamed up that gravity-defying head of hair.

And considering that some of the most beloved movies of the past decade have come straight off of the page -- "Harry Potter, "Twilight" and "The Lord of the Rings" just to name a few -- the marriage between books and film has never been stronger. Get More »

Full-time pop star, part-time actress Taylor Swift will lend her speaking voice (and possibly her singing one) to "Dr. Seuss' The Lorax," a Universal and Illumination Entertainment computer-animated family flick based on the elementary school required reading of the same name.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Swift is the latest addition to a voice roster that includes Danny Devito, Ed Helms, Rob Riggle, Betty White and male teen heartthrob, Zac Efron.

The previous film starring Swift, "Valentine's Day," was a box office bust. However, a children's animated film based on a known commodity and buttressed by big name celebrities is the closest Hollywood has to an alchemic recipe. Get More »
