This week: Bryan Singer adapts the British fairy tale of "Jack and the Beanstalk" into the underappreciated action-adventure "Jack the Giant Slayer," starring Nicholas Hoult, Eleanor Tomlinson and Ewan McGregor.
Also new this week is the coming-of-age comedy "21 & Over," the psychosexual drama "Stoker" with Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska, the quirky morality play "The Brass Teapot" with Juno Temple and the celebrity-riddled anthology film "Movie 43" starring, well, half of Hollywood. Get More »
The "porn star name game" is a time-honored tradition in America.
It's a game pretty much anyone can play, depending on the rules — we employ the First Name: First Pet, Last Name: Street You Grew Up On method (our apologies to those with allergies, maybe you had a goldfish?). And the results are, without fail, hilarious.
We asked 100 of our favorite movie stars in Hollywood — including Emma Watson, Keira Knightley, Megan Fox, Ryan Gosling, Paul Rudd, Anne Hathaway, Matt Damon, Katie Holmes, Jon Hamm, Emma Stone and Neil Patrick Harris — for their porn star names. They did not let us down. Click through the gallery for all 100.
Reporting by: Sandie Angulo Chen ("Millie 69"), Robert DeSalvo ("Rocky Waverly"), Claire Donovan ("Spunky Walter"), Elizabeth Durand ("Stephanie Veronica"), Bryan Enk ("Buck Densmore"), Max Evry ("Orion Cedar Crest "), Breanne Heldman ("Krugerrand Ardon"), Jenni Miller ("Mitzi Turtle Creek"), Kevin Polowy ("Sparkle Sterling"), Brandon Rae ("Sammi von Fernway"), Brooke Tarnoff ("Brandy W. Riviera"), Joanna Varikos ("Angel 14") and Kase Wickman ("Blake Sisters").
Why did the buffalo cross the road? Somehow, it's because a bunch of university co-eds got hammered.
Behold the first trailer for the newest brainchild of "The Hangover" writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.
Co-written and directed by the duo, "21 and Over" stars Justin Chon ("Twilight") as a straight and narrow pre-med student whose buddies — Skylar Astin ("Pitch Perfect") and Miles Teller ("Project X," "Footloose") — are bound and determined to make him celebrate his 21st birthday in properly debaucherous form.

All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• After hunting Jennifer Lawrence in "The Hunger Games," Alexander Ludwig is now setting his sights on Abigail Breslin as he signs on for "Final Girl," according to Variety. The film revolves around a girl who, after being by a group of teenage boys, turns the tables by hunting them. Sheesh, Alex, pick on someone your own size for once!
• Here's a true-life story that occurred strictly so Sacha Baron Cohen could star in a movie about it someday. Deadline reports that "The Dictator" star is attached to "The Lesbian," a dark comedy inspired by the life of Cecil Chao, the Hong Kong billionaire who offered $65 million to any man who succeeded in marrying his lesbian daughter.

All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• We wouldn't mind getting snowed in with this trio! The Hollywood Reporter calls for stormy weather as "Project X" star Miles Teller will star opposite Analeigh Tipton and Jessica Szohr in "Two Night Stand," a romantic indie that centers on a pair of twentysomething strangers who awaken after an ill-advised one-night stand to find themselves snowed in by a blizzard that’s put all of Manhattan on ice.
• After playing a victim in "Straw Dogs," Kate Bosworth is looking to be the rabble-rouser this time around. Heat Vision reports that the "Blue Crush" beauty will be playing James Franco's revenge-minded (and meth-addicted) sister in "Homefront," the action thriller starring Jason Statham and written by Sylvester Stallone.

You know how philosophers, self-help gurus and aging rock stars are always talking about living in the now? Well, there's pretty much nobody around having a better now than Miles Teller, who last year got his breakthrough role in "Footloose" and then followed it up with another smash hit in "Project X."
So it's only fitting that according to Deadline, Teller has just signed on to costar opposite Golden Globe nominee Shailene Woodley in "The Spectacular Now." Hey, when you got it, you got it. Get More »
"I have to go with 'The Wizard of Oz.'
"When I was a kid, I used to watch it like twice a day. It's just enchanting man. Like, that's a movie!
"I think it combines theater elements and fantasy, and it's whimsical and even scary. Those flying monkeys are terrifying.
"I also used to have a crush on Judy Garland."
Miles Teller should be dancing right about now. With "Footloose" hitting shelves on DVD and Blu-ray today and "Project X" raking it in at the box office this past weekend, he has totally earned the right to kick off his Sunday shoes or whatever.
The 25-year-old plays Willard in last year's remake of the hit '80s film, a role he knew long before director Craig Brewer took the helm. And Teller had no concerns about doing a remake of a beloved movie. In fact, even though he played Willard in his first play ever – in high school – he still has never seen the Kevin Bacon flick.
He offered a few other amusing confessions when we checked in on his big week. Get More »
Turns out a whole slew of talent are updating their resumes in the hopes of being able to "Get a Job."
According to Variety, the CBS Films project from "Roger Dodger" director Dylan Kidd has yet to be greenlit, but is either in talks with or attaching actors the likes of "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston and "50/50" darling Anna Kendrick.
The company snagged the Black List script by Kyle Pennekamp and Scott Turpel in 2009, which "follows a college graduate and his friends who have to lower their expectations about life as they enter the real world during a recession." Hmm, sounds timely, or as timely as a four-year economic slump can be. Get More »
Updating a classic can be treacherous, like building a strip mall on hallowed ground; but director Craig Brewer ("Hustle & Flow") avoided the dreaded "High School Musical" route for his remake of "Footloose."
Fans will be relieved to hear that two of the original songs made the cut. Some other adjustments include having four very different dance sequences, and demolition derby buses instead of tractors. Brewer also anchored the script by fleshing out a backstory in which five Bomont teens were tragically killed after a night of dancing and loud music.
But the best upgrade to "Footloose" is the casting of professional dancers in the two lead roles. Everybody loves '80s dance movies, but come on, back then it was super-obvious whenever they swapped Kevin Bacon or Jennifer Beals with their wig-wearing dance doubles. Get More »
