WARNING: Somewhat NSFW.
Once upon a time (read: the '80s), movie fans could count on the fact that at some point, someone in the movie would randomly drop trou or rip off their shirt for no apparent reason whatsoever. And frankly, it was great. After all, why worry about things like plot or character development when you can have some good old-fashioned gratuitous nudity instead? Get More »
UPDATE: Hot on the heels of James' casting, another big announcement from the "Divergent" camp: Kate Winslet is confirmed to play Jeanine Matthews in the flick. While her casting was reported in late January, it was only officially confirmed by Summit today.
Earlier, 3/15: Theo James is hopping aboard the "Divergent" train as Dauntless faction member Four. The 28-year-old actor, probably best known for his memorable (albeit short-lived) turn as Mr. Pamuk on "Downtown Abbey," nabbed the lead role opposite Shailene Woodley, who will play heroine Beatrice 'Tris' Prior.
"Divergent" is based on the 2012 best-selling young-adult novel by Veronica Roth, a dystopian thriller in which society has been divided into five factions, each upholding a particular virtue. Upon their 16th birthday, citizens are tested to determine their place. When Tris' result comes back inconclusive (or Divergent), she leave her family's faction and joins up with the brave Dauntless faction. Tobias 'Four' Eaton is one of the faction's instructors, and the two share an undeniable chemistry.

Hands on your hearts, "Titanic" diehards! What you're about to hear may just make you die. Hard.

But here's the detail that'll make you swoon: The ceremony was so hush-hush that the happy couple's parents weren't even informed — but Kate's "Titanic" co-star, Leonardo DiCaprio, was.

"Here's where you make out with my wife."
If you've ever said that, you're either recreationally into that sort of thing (and we here at NextMovie hold no judgment) or you're a Hollywood director married to an actress in the movie you're directing. Get More »
Damn you, James Cameron. Our thirteen-year-old hearts were broken for naught!
The wily "Mythbusters" duo Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman took to task the ending to one of Hollywood's most ill-fated romances and discovered that Kate Winslet's socially angsty Rose could have easily shared her space on the little makeshift floating board with her "never let go" love ... with a little life-jacket maneuvering.

Actors are trained to be able to portray just about anything their role calls for, but there's one thing even the best actors can't possibly fake: Singing.
That's why we're always so impressed when actors sing on screen rather than just lip-synch some professional musician. Case in point: Next week's "Pitch Perfect," which features stars such as Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson belting out tunes like the divas they were meant to be. Get More »
Some performances are just so indelible that you can't imagine anyone else possibly taking on the role. Sigourney Weaver is Ellen Ripley. Al Pacino is Michael Corleone. And could anyone possibly have played the star-crossed lovers of "Titanic," Rose and Jack, other than Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio?
Well, how about Kate Winslet and... Jeremy Sisto?
Yeah, we have a feeling you're going to want to see this. Get More »

In the UK, redheads or "gingers," once considered evil demonic spawn, are regularly insulted and abused. But we in America have a long-standing love affair with strawberry locks, so much so that many blondes and brunettes have dyed their hair to become famous fiery redheads, a la Lucille Ball, Nicole Kidman and Emma Stone.
In honor of Pixar's new "Brave" heroine Merida (voiced by Kelly Macdonald), we've assembled our list of favorite cinematic gingers -- and by that we mean the characters were redheads, not necessarily the actors. Yes, they're all ladies, but we'd love it if more actors like Damian Lewis, Michael Fassbender and Kevin McKidd let their ginger flags fly high. Rupert Grint can't be the only one to represent, guys.
