Some of us just yawned and obsessed over the ticking of the clock during our far-too-long commencement speeches. Whatever maniac decided that so-and-so's wife's something or other who didn’t even graduate is equipped to send students off with a 30-minute diatribe on themselves is sorely mistaken. Just dole out the degrees already and call a day a day, right, kids? Unless ...
You know, every so often schools are able to wrangle in someone actually interesting to deliver a few notes of wisdom — some more often than others (cough Harvard cough). Even better, once in a while they're our very shiniest movie stars who make lots of funnies and deliver all the feels and suddenly the speeches don't seem so bad. Get More »
When it comes to hobbies, different people enjoy collecting different things. Some people are really into coins, while others collect comic books. Your little cousin Eddie might be into Pokemon cards, while your Grandma Ethel might enjoy stamps. In the world of collecting, there's something for everyone.
And Disney? Well, as Variety is reporting, Disney is putting together an unmatched collection of superstars for their upcoming fable "Into the Woods" — and Emily Blunt is their latest mega-acquisition.

We've all heard of fairy tale endings, but the upcoming musical "Into the Woods" is having a real fairy tale beginning, as The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Chris Pine and Jake Gyllenhaal are the latest superstars set to join the party.
It's almost enough to make you randomly burst into fanciful song, isn't it? Get More »
Let's face it, it sucks when people die. Except sometimes in the movie, because then it gives filmmakers an opportunity to put together an amazing ensemble cast for one of those big family dramas where everyone comes together and their shared grief causes them all to say a bunch of stuff nobody should probably say out loud.
Hey, if someone has to die to give us a new Meryl Streep movie, then so be it. Get More »
The 2013 Golden Globes: Last night, at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's 70th annual awards bash, we laughed, we cried, we, well...drank. Co-hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey proved to be smart picks to shepherd audiences in-house and at-home through the three-hour ceremony, and the awards show's legendary open bar did not disappoint.
Weird moments and hilarity flowed as freely last night as the Moet stocked at the celebs' tables, and how better to relive those moments than in meme form? Below, check out nine of our favorite Golden Globes moments, meme-ified. In the wise words of early-2000s emo band Fall Out Boy, Thnks fr th Mmrs, guys.
1. Anne Hathaway is visited by the Ghost of Oscars Past
Famke Janssen has played a lot of parts — sexy superhero, love-struck journalist, evil witch — but she's about to add a new line to her resume: Writer/ Director. That's right, the brunette stunner has moved to the other side of the camera for her new film, "Bringing Up Bobby," a project that took her quite some to cobble together ... which just goes to show how hard it really is to get a movie made.
The comedy follows Olive (Milla Jovovich), a con artist who moves her son to a conservative neighborhood in Oklahoma in an effort to build a better future. We won't spoil it for you, but suffice to say that things don't exactly go as planned for our ambitious heroine or her offspring. Janssen chatted with us about what inspired her to want to tell this story, how it was directing for the first time and what man she would love to share some love scenes with when she returns to the silver screen.

All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• Who would win in a fight — the Prince of Persia or Wolverine? Heat Vision reports that Jake Gyllenhall will butt heads with Hugh Jackman in "Prisoners," a thriller about a carpenter (Jackman) who takes the law into his own hands after his daughter and best friend are kidnapped. The "End of Watch" star will play the detective on the case who doesn't take to the amateur vigilante's methods.
• Might Q be joining Thor and Catwoman in Steven Spielberg's "Robopocalypse"? Variety reports that "Skyfall" actor Ben Whishaw has been approached for the role of an expert hacker named Lurker in the sci-fi action extravaganza that's set to hit theaters on April 25, 2014 (a rather non-Spielberg time of the year, no?).

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 »
Everyone loves a bad boy. The snarling mustache twirlers get all of the fame and fortune -- the No. 1 spot on movie-geek lists, the Halloween costumes, the cool quotes -- and none of them have to worry about being called a witch.
But here at NextMovie, we're all about the bad girls. We love a lady who isn't afraid to embrace her nasty side in order to get what she wants.
In honor of "Savages" and Salma Hayek's role as a brutal drug cartel leader, we've gathered up the coolest and cruelest women to grace the silver screen. We're a little worried about ranking them, because if there's one thing we know about these vicious villainesses, it's that they don't like competition. But we did. Now, you read. We'll run.

Count Emily Blunt in for the sequel to "The Devil Wears Prada," but only if she's not required to slim down for it.
Echoing co-star Meryl Streep's sentiments about a potential follow-up to the 2006 hit, Blunt told the Huffington Post that she'd be willing to return to her breakthrough role as Emily Charlton for a second "Prada" movie, but only if major weight loss isn't a part of the deal. Get More »
