Novelists are awesome. A good book is like an old friend, and we tip our proverbial hat to anyone who can pluck a tale from thin air and entertain or, better yet, enlighten a total stranger. Put too many writers in one family, though, and the plot is bound to get thick with complications.
This week: Daniel Craig returns as 007 in arguably the best Bond film ever (or at least in decades), "Skyfall," co-starring Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris and Ben Whishaw.
Also new this week is the coming-of-age drama "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" with Emma Watson, RZA trying to do Quentin Tarantino proud in "The Man with the Iron Fists" and the sexually frank drama "The Sessions" starring Helen Hunt. Get More »
No doubt one of the trickiest tasks of adapting a book for the big screen is deciding which memorable moments will make the final cut—and which will end up on the cutting room floor. And we imagine the process is even more fraught if you're the one who wrote the thing to begin with, so we have to give big ups to "Perks of Being a Wallflower" author Stephen Chbosky, who expertly edited his coming-of-age novel into an affecting film without losing any of the heart—even if it did lose a scene or two.

Charlie may be a the strong, silent type, but the "Perks of Being a Wallflower" protagonist knows a thing or two about style... and we're not just talking about his ability to write letters to an unknown friend.
Logan Lerman's character knows the finer points of wearing a suit, while his more outgoing friends, played by Ezra Miller, Emma Watson and Mae Whitman rock some decidedly looks ranging from punk rock to totally preppy. And, despite the fact that the film takes place in the early 1990s, the fashions of the film — like the themes — still totally translate.
Check out the latest Get the Goods for some of our favorite looks from the movie.
Oh, Logan Lerman. You've certainly come a long way since "Riding in Cars with Boys" (yeah, see for yourself).
Director Chris Columbus certainly made a good call when it came time to cast the son of a god in "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief." There's definitely something ... well, deity-like about Logan Lerman — especially when he's wielding a sword.
Lerman is back in full-on teen heartthrob mode as a high school student in "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," in theaters Sept. 21. Check out our gallery of the young star getting an A for hotness in movies and on the red carpet.
There are many "Perks of Being a Wallflower" ... and many more will be revealed in the latest installment of MTV First.
Watch Emma Watson, Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller talk everything "Perks" with MTV's Josh Horowitz as we prepare for the release of what looks to be a new coming-of-age classic (and how long has it been since we had one of those?). The "Perks" gang will also be introducing an exclusive new clip from the film.
MTV First: "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" commences above at 7:54 p.m. ET. Catch the movie in theaters on Sept. 21.
Stephen Chbosky brings his celebrated coming of age novel "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" to the screen with a little help from fantasy film staples Emma Watson ("Harry Potter"), Logan Lerman ("Percy Jackson"), and an assist from "We Need to Talk About Kevin" maniac Ezra Miller.
The three stars play young teens dealing with feelings, shyness, group social dynamics and all the other stuff they warned you about on after-school specials. It centers on Charlie (Lerman) as he goes from exclusion to acceptance during his angst-filled freshman year of high school. Get More »
It's always a little awkward hanging out with new friends and a whole bunch of their old friends. We totally feel for Logan Lerman's character Charlie in "The Perks of Being a Wallflower."
Of course, that's made so much better when said new friends are the likes of Emma Watson and Ezra Miller. Check out this exclusive clip from MTV's Fall Preview Week and feel the warm fuzzies for yourself.
"Welcome to the island of misfit toys?" More like welcome to one of the best movies of the coming season.
"The Perks of Being a Wallflower" arrives in theaters on Sept. 21.
High school is a whole lot cooler with Emma Watson and Logan Lerman.
MTV's Josh Horowitz got to dance in a gym (remember those days?) as he visited the set of "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," the highly anticipated dramedy based on Stephen Chbosky's novel. Josh got to hang out with all the coolest students, including Watson, who's excited for her first big post-"Harry Potter" gig, and Lerman, who's taking a break from the fantasy realm of "Percy Jackson" to play a freshman in need of some good friends.
Check out the video of the set visit above and head over to MTV for even more "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" goodies. The film opens Sept. 21.
Darren Aronofsky is going from one crazed ballerina in "Black Swan" to one (arguably) crazed boat-builder in his upcoming drama, "Noah."
And now that the writer/director has Russell Crowe locked down as the titular handyman, he's busy casting two other main roles: Noah's sons. Word has it that English heartthrob Douglas Booth is lined up to play Noah's younger boy, Shem, and Logan Lerman will take on the role of the older son, Ham.
There's still no definitive word on which actress might play Noah's wife (who may or may not support his somewhat radical survival plan), though there are rumblings of Aronofsky's "Requiem For a Dream" star Jennifer Connelly as a possibility, Deadline reports. She starred opposite Crowe in "A Beautiful Mind" back in 2001, so she's got some experience as his better half. Get More »
