Imagine you've just tried to pull of a major heist and everything went pear shaped. Now you're battered, bleeding, arrested, with some of your best friends missing and possibly dead. Things just couldn't get any worse, right?
Now imagine that the guy they sent to interrogate you is Lord Voldemort's right hand man, Wormtail.
Welcome to the new trailer for "Wasteland." Get More »
Our seven years at Hogwarts are long over and done with, and we're seriously missing our favorite wizards and witches. Sure, the books and movies will always be there, but it's just not the same as having new installments to look forward to, is it? Where's the thrill now that Voldemort is gone and the Boy Who Lived, well, lived? Where are we supposed to get our magical fix now?
Luckily, the actors and actresses behind the wands and invisibility cloaks are still going strong, and we can have fun watching them on screens big and small. We saw Daniel Radcliffe drag us back into the world of the eerie in "The Woman in Black" earlier this year and now Draco Malfoy Tom Felton is getting his creep on with "The Apparition."
In their honor, we've decided to check in on all the Gryffindors, Slytherins, Ravenclaws and Hufflepuffs to see just what they're up to, post-Potter. Get More »
"It's so hard to pick one. 'Taxi Driver' is pretty up there and it's definitely my favorite De Niro and Scorsese collaboration. And 'Serpico' is my favorite Pacino movie, just because his performance is unbelievable.
"'Star Wars,' in my youth, was obviously… that was it. That, to me, was the most enjoyable thing, I loved losing myself in the world of 'Star Wars.' But then I got into the world of acting more and more and then I had to start looking at serious films. But it depends. If was going to pick a film to win an Oscar, I would pick 'Taxi Driver.' But if I was going to pick a film to watch, for fun and enjoyment, I'd pick 'Star Wars.'" Get More »
Harry Potter may be the Boy Who Lived, but any hardcore "Potter" fan knows the true heart of Gryffindor House is Harry's bumbling friend Neville Longbottom. As "Potter" readers already know -- and those lining up for the final installment of the movie series will soon learn -- "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2" is Neville's chance to shine, as the dumpiest soldier in Dumbledore's Army unleashes jaw-dropping feats of bravery and heroics.
Meeting Matthew Lewis, the actor who portrays Neville, is a bit shocking; there's no trace of the disheveled kid wizard in Lewis' grown-up appearance. Once we've regained our composure, NextMovie asks the 22-year-old actor (sans Neville's paunchy belly) what he'll take from the "Harry Potter" experience, where he'll go with it -- and what he remembers most about humiliating himself on set.

And so it all ends.
The NextMovie staff is feeling especially bittersweet this evening, as Monday, July 11 marked the last time there will ever be a "Harry Potter" premiere in their hometown of New York City. Check out the stars who made the event all the more special... and, dare we say it, magical.
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2" opens Friday, July 15.
In the final weeks before the release of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2," an interview with its 21-year-old star Daniel Radcliffe circulated that suggested the actor had quit drinking after relying too heavily on alcohol.
In an exclusive chat with NextMovie, Radcliffe's co-star Matthew Lewis insists the story was "not a misquote exactly, but so blown out of proportion and taken so out of context."
"I think Dan was just doing what any young person does -- not a young person that happens to be in film -- just any young person growing up," says Lewis, who plays lovable buffoon Neville Longbottom in all eight movies of the series. "I've been out with Dan. Obviously, I've known him for over 10 years. I've never seen any indication of excess or anything like that." Get More »
You know the phrase, "No guts, no glory?"
Apparently, that doesn't always apply to the "Harry Potter" series. Ever since the "Sorcerer's Stone," it's all Harry, Harry, Harry, with whatever heroic kudos remains peppered between Ron and Hermione.
And it's not right. Neville Longbottom has saved the day in his own, quiet way too many times (not even to mention what happens in "Deathly Hallows - Part 2"). So we're singing to our unsung hero.
Behold, our Ode to Neville Longbottom. Get More »

The last "Harry Potter" movie is coming out on July 15, but while "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2" brings Harry's story to an end, the story of the film's young stars is just beginning.
For the last decade, we've watched Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and the whole gang grow up right before our eyes. But now that they've left the nest, which ones will fly -- and which will crash into the ground?
Vote now in our poll and tell us just which "Harry Potter" star you think will be the most successful. And if you're feeling pressure over who to pick, don't worry: This poll will only determine the rest of their lives. Happy voting! Get More »
The summer movie season is here, and that means one thing: AIR CONDITIONING!!! Also, we get to watch some cool movies with our air conditioning ticket.
There will be some familiar if not downright iconic faces to greet us there, but who's not looking to make some new friends? Lucky for us Hollywood is dishing out a promising group of cinematic newcomers who just might have made the leap to stardom by the time school's back in session -- including two sons, one daughter and one cousin of pop culture royalty.
