Ah, France — good wine, great mimes, the best accordion players you could ever find. It's a bastion of culture in an uncultured world; just ask anyone from France and they'll tell you. And as the new international blockbuster "Les Misérables" (now on DVD and Blu-ray) proves, it's also a country filled with amazing history that is perfectly suited for big-screen epics. Get More »
Ah, New Year's Eve — a magical evening filled with champagne, kisses at the stroke of midnight and, of course, a fresh start to the year ahead. Too bad in real life it's so much more often filled with overpriced dinners, obnoxious drunks and broken resolutions. (Yes, we often do manage to break our resolutions before even crawling into bed.) In other words, New Year's Eve almost always blows … yet somehow in the movies it's so damn perfect. Get More »
They say timing is everything. Lucky for Amanda Seyfried, that time is now.
After bursting onto the Hollywood scene in 2004 with "Mean Girls," Amanda has dazzled us with her romantic features in, well, romantic features. Needless to say, we're totally psyched to see her breaking hearts and hitting high notes in "Les Miserables."
And, yeah, we're also totally psyched for the excuse to celebrate her gorgeousness with a gallery. Enjoy!
Let's close the year with something really meta, shall we?
Art really starts imitating itself when there's a Top 10 list of Top 10 lists. But really, with so many Top 10 lists out there, we felt it only appropriate to consolidate our favorites into one handy location. And then, sometime down the line, someone can make a Top 10 list of the best Top 10 Top 10 lists. It boggles the mind, doesn't it? And it should. Get More »
We first fell in love with Anne Hathaway's charming turn as teenage princess Mia in "The Princess Diaries," and we've been hooked ever since. Whether Anne is playing a recovering drug addict ("Rachel Getting Married"), the incomparable Catwoman ("The Dark Knight Rises") or a poor wretched factory worker turned prostitute who can sing like nobody's business ("Les Miserables"), she's matured into quite the leading lady and one of the hottest actresses in Hollywood.
Anne also seems like one of the friendliest stars out there, showing off her gorgeous smile in just about every photo. There's really nothing we don't love about this actress, and we know you'll feel the same way after flipping through this Hot People Looking Hot gallery.
With Christmas upon us, we thought it'd be fitting to list our nine favorite characters from holiday flicks sure to put you and your family in a merry mood. Let's face it, there’s nothing better than sitting together with the gang and getting the heartstrings tugged, and the funny bones tickled, with a glass of eggnog by your side.
On a side note: We know our list is lacking in female characters — and those of color, for that matter. But don't blame us. Blame Hollywood! Get More »
At the rate Hollywood is cranking out remakes, you know it's only a matter of time before our holiday favorites get fresh takes.
Of course, some, like "Miracle on 34th Street" and "A Christmas Carol," have already been through the remakes rounds a few times over.
But just so you're prepared, we've gone ahead and given visual representation to what these inevitable remakes might look like – and we're not gonna lie, we'd pay to see a few of these. Get More »
It has become a pastime of late for actors to bite the hand that feeds them and voice their disdain for awards season and critics in general. Left and right, you hear that awards aren't important, that ceremonies are superfluous and that old bag about what an honor it would be to be nominated.
Not Christoph Waltz, however, a Best Supporting Actor winner who seems to relish awards season. Good thing, too, since the German-born Waltz could be in the thick of it once again for his role in Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained." Waltz stars as a dentist-cum-bounty hunter who helps Django (Jamie Foxx) find his wife. Get More »
Well, you made it. It's the end of the year and time for Winter Break. You have time off from school and it's time to kick back and spend some time YOUR way. (Now, if you are out of school and happen to have one of those rare things called a job, you are absolutely, positively supposed to take the entire week between Christmas and New Year's off. If your boss didn't tell you about that, it is because it is so obvious that he just assumes that you know. You should totally just not show up, it's no big deal, trust me.)
Annoyingly, "Django Unchained" won't be out yet, and chances are you already saw "The Hobbit." Your choices are either "The Guilt Trip," "This is 40" or "Jack Reacher." Or you can chug an entire bottle of raspberry-flavored cough syrup and see "Cirque du Soliel: Worlds Away." Considering this is a sort-of plot point to the sort-of prequel to "This is 40," "Knocked Up," it's clear that this is the way to go. Get More »
If you're anything like us, then at this time of year you're a sucker for Christmas movies of any kind. You melt and grin over the tender lessons learned, the opening of presents, the sourpuss having a change of heart, the pratfalls, the lovers sharing a kiss in the snow, the realization that Santa actually exists. Oh, and Martians.
We're celebrating our love of Christmas movies, not to mention the holiday itself, with this heartwarming mashup of Christmas cheer. Merry Christmas from all of us here at NextMovie — as well as a multitude of movie characters — to all of you. Get More »
