Whether you're heading back to school or suffering that annual bout of chem class flashbacks, you know what September means for the young of the world: Nine months of homework, student body drama and teachers that infect their students with parasitic aliens bent on world domination.
Just kidding. We're reasonably sure that only happens in the movies.
Our anxiety dreams are always reignited in August — so as you kids get your back-to-school shopping out of the way and sharpen your pencils (pencils? Remember pencils? Sharpish yellow things with magical scribbling properties?), we'll reflect on nine movie academies that will make you grateful for even the crappiest real-life high school. Get More »
Regarding August science fiction movies about mental enhancements: there was never just one!
"The Bourne Legacy" may look, sound and smell like an action-adventure movie – that's certainly how they're selling it – but at its center is a genuine sci-fi premise. The baddies (the shadowy agency represented by Edward Norton's scowls) are making super soldiers by introducing viruses into field agents via green and blue pills. "Chems," they are called, but hardcore nerds might be forgiven if they flash on Ketracel-white, the drug that the Dominion uses to give its elite band of warriors, the Jem'Hadar, the edge (as well as keeping them in line.)
"The Bourne Legacy" isn't the first movie to obscure sci-fi-ness in its marketing. We offer up this readymade document for you to bring up whenever you feel like being a pain in the ass at cocktail parties. Get More »
We're all super-stoked that "The Social Network" Oscar nominee Andrew Garfield will be strapping on blue and red webcrawler latex in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot. After watching him get screwed out of the Facebook social interwebs, we definitely can't wait to see him to screw over some villainous foes with his own Spidey webs instead.
But before all of that, Garfield also gave an impressive acting tour-de-force in "Never Let Me Go."

Vampires, organ transfers, and "special friendships" between James Gandolfini and Kristen Stewart!?
This week's new releases in DVD and Blu-Ray include "Let Me In," "Never Let Me Go," and "Welcome to the Rileys." And Brigitte recommends watching this remix by Pogo to get pumped for watching the new release of Disney's animated "Alice in Wonderland" on Blu-Ray!
Who doesn't love discovering new talent? Introducing emerging stars will be a staple of NextMovie, so we're psyched to find the fall movie calendar chock-full of them.
Some of the folks highlighted in the following list are respected actors in foreign countries, others are better known as TV actors or singers, but none of them have had that breakout role in a movie that makes them a true-blue Hollywood star… until now. Get More »
You know about "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." You know about Shia LaBeouf and the "Wall Street" sequel, Robert Rodriguez's "Machete" and the Facebook movie (aka "The Social Network").
But now, NextMovie drops a dime on nine fall flicks that may be flying under the radar, but which we predict will stir up a nice respectable buzz when they hit theaters. The list includes Oscar winners, a Sexiest Man Alive, life-changing documentaries, book and play adaptations, a remake, a vampire tween and that modern day Renaissance man, James Franco. Get More »
