So what would happen if you took "The Hangover" and replaced Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis and Bradley Cooper with some of the greatest actors of the last half century? Well, as this new clip from Yahoo! Movies shows, you'd have the first trailer for the upcoming comedy "Last Vegas," that's what.
We can't wait to see what blatantly derivative "idea" Hollywood comes up with next.
Not that "Last Vegas" looks bad. Actually, it looks kind of interesting, based solely on the fact that it features Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro and Kevin Kline as a geriatric wolfpack out for one last weekend of crazy times before the old folks home comes to get them. Their excuse for their trip to Vegas? Bachelor party, naturally. Get More »
Movies — er, "cinema" — might not matter so much to director Steven Soderbergh these days, but judging by this new trailer for "Behind the Candelabra," a film he's been putting together for years and which will finally debut on HBO next month, he's still quite cozy in the director's chair.
The cable network released a first trailer for the film, which adapts the memoir of Liberace's lover-slash-chauffeur Scott Thorson, "My Life with Liberace," and it's absolutely gorgeous. Get More »
It's only been six weeks or so since President Barack Obama was inaugurated for his second term and already some folks are starting to handicap the 2016 presidential race. In the battle between the Democrats and the Republicans, there's no such thing as a clear winner, because the contest never ends.
Until now, that is, because we're about to declare a winner when we reveal which of your favorite movie presidents are Democrats and which are Republicans. Get More »
What if Michael Douglas had never been Michael Douglas but instead had was a pug dog-human hybrid named Michael Puglas? It's the kind of thing we think about around here.
The posters of his extensive and eclectic filmography might look a little something like the display below. You may not be able to teach an old dog new tricks, but you can apparently teach him to get dangerously entangled with Sharon Stone and Glenn Close (we should stop now while we're ahead, shouldn't we?) and to deliver bite-sized pop philosophies on '80s-era economics (okay, good save).
You knew this was coming, right?
If we're all being honest with ourselves, pretty much everyone has dreamed of being the first lady. They say that power is the ultimate aphrodisiac, and what station is more powerful than president of the United States?
With that in mind this Presidents Day, cue "Hail to the Chief," because not only are we giving you venue to picture yourself as the first lady, we're taking it one step further: Why settle for marrying a president when you could also eff and kill two others? U-S-A! U-S-A!
Since we're pretty sure it's a federal crime just to mention the k-word in the same sentence as the word "president" (let's hope the Secret Service are movie fans as well), we've turned to film for this especially patriotic installment of NextMovie's Eff, Marry, Kill. We turned to our friendliest of friends at Hollywood Crush and Yahoo! Entertainment, as well as you, friendly reader, to take stock of our cinematic Commanders-in-Chief. Presenting the presidential contenders: Dave Kovic from "Dave," Andrew Shepherd from "The American President" and, well, Honest Abe himself as portrayed in "Lincoln." Check out our panel's picks below, and be sure to cast your vote in our poll below and explain yourself in the comments. Don't forget to grab two forms of FMK ID before you head off the to the polls!

Michael Fassbender's riding into the sunset, Evan Rachel Wood is hitting the road and Jamie Bell is gettin' busy in this week's casting news.
Fassbender may soon be studying to be a quick draw as he's in talks to join the western, "Jane Got a Gun," according to Vulture. Natalie Portman is currently attached to the film about a woman who hires an ex-lover (Fassbender) to protect her ranch after her outlaw husband returns home bullet-ridden and with former criminal colleagues hot on his heels. Lynne Ramsay ("We Need to Talk About Kevin") is attached to direct.
As expected, "The King's Speech" reigned over this year's Oscar nominees, and Natalie Portman and James Franco received their Best Actress and Actor nods for "Black Swan" and "127 Hours," respectively.
Still, as always, there were plenty of surprises and snubs that had us raising our eyebrows: "The Town" was shut down, Mark Wahlberg and Andrew Garfield were somehow left out of the party, and Mila Kunis is probably drowning her sorrows at the barre.
Our nominations for the biggest shockers:

Enjoy Ricky Gervais' Golden Globes performance now as it'll probably be the last time you see him host the award show.
The comedian eviscerated everyone from Tom Cruise to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) -- aka the people that vote on and run the Golden Globes -- in a devastating opening that most likely earned him a spot on the "Do Not Invite" list next year.
Hollywood's loss is our gain, though, as Gervais imbued the superficial proceedings with rare jolts of earnestness and sincerity, tearing away the veneer of fake smiles and polite applause in favor of numerous "He's going to get beat up backstage" moments.
But it wasn't all about Gervais. While the only real surprise came with Paul Giamatti's upset win over Johnny Depp for Best Actor - Comedy or Musical, there were still myriad best and worst moments, including... Get More »
Sure, we coveted that sweet gift Shia LaBeouf received at the beginning of "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps." We doubt anyone would scoff at a check for nearly $1.5 million.
But since such valuable slips of paper aren't exactly easy to come by, we're cool with coveting a few other goods from the movie. Admittedly, if you had that hefty check, you might be more apt to buy all this stuff, but, for now, we suggest you pick and choose. Get More »
The past three years have not been kind to Wall Street. Or is it Wall Street has not been kind to this country's past three years?
Either way, if you work in the finance industry right now, you may be wondering where all the birthday party and wedding invites have gone. (OK, we admit most Wall Streeters are ethical, upstanding people; unfortunately, none of them are actually running the companies.)
Still, the movies have understandably loved to call upon the merciless traders, brokers and corporate raiders whenever they need an unsympathetic, arrogant show-off. Get More »
