Young Adult Fiction is all the rage in cinema right now. True, "Twilight" and "Harry Potter" have made their final bows, but in their place has come a maelstrom of successors, including "The Hunger Games," "Warm Bodies," "Beautiful Creatures," "The Host," and the upcoming big-screen adaptations of "Divergent" and "The Mortal Instruments."
Most of these stories are seen through the eyes of a young heroine, and with all of these yarns sharing similar elements of romance, fantasy and conspiracy, keeping track of all the distinctive details of each leading lady and their respective heroine's journeys can be a daunting task indeed. In the interest of simplicity and at-a-glance organization, NextMovie's own Nick DeSantis (artwork) and Amanda Bell (stats) have conjured this handy chart to help in keeping all the ladies in line — literally.

"Man, let's go see a movie! You know, the one where a bunch of bros go out to celebrate another bro's milestone. Madness, shots, nudity and general hijinks follow! Laugh riot!"
"Yeah, dude! 'The Hangover' was so great, wasn't it?"
"No, I was talking about '21 and Over.'"
"You're blowing. My mind." Get More »
Quick! What does Superman look like? Not a tough question, considering the caped crusader is an iconic American superhero whose noble good looks both in and out of character (hubba hubba, Clark Kent!) are unforgettable.
Steve Younis, the guy behind Superman Homepage, has cobbled together an extensive, illustrated poster that details the ever-changing evolution of Superman's "looks" since Joe Shuster created him 75 years ago. To be fair, not much has changed: he's all deep, soulful eyes, jet black hair with a hue of blue and a dangling wisp, and a jawline so pronounced, it could cut like a knife.
The one thing to never change, though? That beloved cape that lets Superman fly through the air. Oh yeah, and, also, that whole "It's a bird, its's a plane!" thing. Will they ever learn it's the friggin' Man of Steel?
Time goes by. You get older. You start wondering if you'll ever see an infographic featuring every character ever killed by Jason Voorhees complete with the various forms of murder he chose to knock off his hapless victims. Then you start wondering if you should go to therapy.
NextMovie can't help you with that last part. Good luck. But as for that infographic? It exists for your (really weird) viewing pleasure!
Thanks to our casual acquaintances at Slashfilm, we have a comprehensive infographic of literally every single character murdered by Jason Voorhees in the "Friday the 13th" / "Jason" movies - and how they met their maker. Our amateur eyes draw a few conclusions:
- Jason killed a lot of people with spears.
- In the first few movies, he killed women as much as he killed men. Later films we seem to see a softer side from Big Jase as he sticks to killing dudes, mostly.
- He's not above using anything sharp to kill you. Anything sharp at all.
- Poor "Sgt. Brodski" from "Jason X," who seems to have been lit on fire. Yikes.
- "Dan" from "Friday the 13th, Part VII" was impaled by Jason's arm? Alright then. Tough one for the medical examiner.
- The fact that there was a film called "Jason X" suggests that a lot of characters really blew it re: putting this guy down once and for all. My goodness.
Your move, Krueger.

In this corner, standing two and a half feet tall and weighing in at 18 pounds, the challenger: Chucky, the doll of pure evil! And in the other corner, standing 25 stories high with a weight of 49 tons, the J.J. Abrams' secret menace from outer space, Clover!
Okay, sure, on paper it looks like a mismatch. But just how well do your favorite movie monsters really stack up against each other? That's the question posed — and then expertly answered — by this cool infographic, which compares the heights of some of the most sinister beasts ever to grace the big screen.
Which of these terrifying creatures would win in a fight, of course, is still up to you to decide. But what size sombrero they each wear? Finally, that question has been answered once and for all. Thanks, Reddit!

They say that it takes one to know one. If you're obsessed enough with horror tropes to make a movie called "30 Nights of Paranormal Activity with the Devil Inside the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," let's assume you can be trusted to guide viewers through a terrifying movie experience.
It's a good thing they're a trusted source, because that's exactly what the "30 Nights..." crew aims to do. The film's team created a helpful infographic to help hapless viewers identify various serial killer stereotypes, and then escape them alive. Included: Advice, things to look out for when buying a home (um, bodies buried in the backyard), a typical timeline for who gets killed when (congrats, innocent girls, you're saved for last!), and more.

They don't call it the "Information Superhighway" for nothing, you know.
Where would we be without Infographics? Sometimes you just can't grasp the general concept, fine details and/or basic facts of something unless you have a visual aid with pictures and charts and numbers and stuff. An Infographic is like a really cool PowerPoint presentation that someone else had to make and that you don't have to be in a conference room to look at. Get More »
