Bryan Singer Talks Us Through the 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Trailer

The trailer for "X-Men: Days of Future Past" dropped earlier this week, and while it surely excited fans of the previous films and the comics, it came across as a bit confusing for those that didn't already know what was going to be happening. So, our good friends over at MTV News got director Bryan Singer on the phone to answer some of the biggest questions. Get More »

'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Trailer: Mutant Time Travel

Mutants can travel through time and manipulate the past now. Take that, regular humans!

That's the brand new layer Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past" installment intends to add to the "X" universe  this go-round, and if this first trailer for the pic is any indication it's going to be a deep and dramatic little effort indeed. Get More »

Movie Stars Reveal Their Porn Star Names

The "porn star name game" is a time-honored tradition in America.

It's a game pretty much anyone can play, depending on the rules — we employ the First Name: First Pet, Last Name: Street You Grew Up On method (our apologies to those with allergies, maybe you had a goldfish?). And the results are, without fail, hilarious.

We asked over 100 of our favorite movie stars in Hollywood — including Channing Tatum, Emma Watson, Keira Knightley, Megan Fox, Ryan Gosling, Salma Hayek, Anne Hathaway, Matt Damon, Katie Holmes, Emma Stone and Neil Patrick Harris — for their porn star names. They did not let us down. Click through the gallery for all 100+.

Reporting by: Sandie Angulo Chen ("Millie 69"), Robert DeSalvo ("Rocky Waverly"), Claire Donovan ("Spunky Walter"), Elizabeth Durand ("Stephanie Veronica"), Bryan Enk ("Buck Densmore"), Max Evry ("Orion Cedar Crest "), Breanne Heldman ("Krugerrand Ardon"), Jenni Miller ("Mitzi Turtle Creek"), Kevin Polowy ("Sparkle Sterling"), Brandon Rae ("Sammi von Fernway"), Brooke Tarnoff ("Brandy W. Riviera"), Joanna Varikos ("Angel 14") and Kase Wickman ("Blake Sisters").

Supercut: Every Question Ellen Page Asks In 'Inception'


If you left watching "Inception" scratching your head and wondering what your eyeballs just spent the last 148 minutes observing, you are not alone. Not only do millions of viewers feel the same way, one of the film's actors isn't even sure what's going on: Ellen Page.

Page, who plays grad student-cum-dream archictect Ariadne in the film (alongside va-va-voom hotties Leonardo DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon-Levitt), spends an awful lot of time asking questions. In fact, curiosity almost kills Page when dream residue knocks her right off her chair mid-question. So much for knowledge being power or whatever. Get More »

'Touchy Feely' Trailer Is Touchy, Feely

Some movies are touching. Some movies, on the other hand, are about touching — you know, touching people, touching skin, touching lives. All of that sort of thing.

Case in point: The new Apple Trailers clip for the Sundance hit "Touchy Feely," in which everybody touches everybody else, either literally or metaphorically and sometimes inappropriately.

Consider it the "Snakes On A Plane" of quirky indie character pieces. Get More »

Questions and Answers With Ellen Page

Looks can be deceiving. Take, for example, Ellen Page. The 26-year-old actress stands only 5'1" tall but has made it clear through her choice of roles that she is a force to be reckoned with: In 2005's "Hard Candy," Page played a young girl who makes a pedophilic photographer pay for his distasteful taste. In "The East," out in limited release this weekend, Page again plays someone looking for revenge — this time, she stars as Izzy, a young woman who is part of an underground group seeking revenge by any means necessary on harmful corporations.

Page co-stars in the film alongside Brit Marling, who co-wrote the script with director Zal Batmanglij, and Alexander Skarsgard. We caught up with Page in New York City ahead of the movie's release to talk about her directorial ambitions, feminist roles and what she could contribute to an underground anti-corporate group.

Melissa McCarthy and Ellen Page to Hit the Road for Directorial Debuts

Two more Hollywood ladies are ready to take their turns behind the camera, Mr. DeMille.

Both the oh-so-hilarious Melissa McCarthy and little Ellen Page have now signed up for their directorial debuts, and while their projects (and, uh, personalities) are pretty distinct, they do have one thing in common: trippin'!

No, we're not talking about a pair of LSD bender flicks here. Instead, both women's films involve their female protagonists leaving the homestead to discover a little somethin' somethin' about themselves. Get More »

All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...

• Seth MacFarlane has scored quite the cowgirl! The "Ted" funnyman has rounded up the gorgeous (and quite funny herself) Charlize Theron to star in his new film, "A Million Ways to Die in the West," a self-described "Blazing Saddles"-type comedy about a sheepish farmer who chickens out of a gunfight and sees his girlfriend leave him. [Heat Vision]

Colin Farrell and Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain are going classical with "Miss Julie," director Liv Ullmann's take on August Strindberg's 19th-century stage play about the sexually-charged battle of wills between a wealthy socialite and one of her head servants, with the servant's fiancee popping up every now and then to make things even more interesting. Samantha Morton is also set to star. [The Hollywood Reporter] Get More »

All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...

Ellen Page will be starring in "Into the Forest," the story of two teenage sisters living in rural Northern California as society seems to decay and collapse around them. As if that should alarm the girl who saw buildings fold in on themselves and stuff in "Inception." [The Playlist]
