Fake 'Simpsons' Movies Get Real Posters

Via MTV News — Admit it: You live in Springfield. In your mind, at least. Whether you think the fictitious everytown is in Oregon, Illinois, Missouri or elsewhere, you've been a fan of "The Simpsons" for years and have imagined yourself as a little cartoon human, eating donuts alongside Homer, studying with Lisa or watching movies with Bart.

Now, thanks to the creative genius of Old Red Jalopy and MTV News, you're that much closer to living in Springfield. "The Simpsons" is littered with references to fake movies and their stars (Troy McClure, we see you there), so we took steps to make that a little more real by casting them and bringing you their posters. Grab your popcorn and buy your tickets, because we think you've got a date with "The Contrabulous Fabtraption of Professor Horatio Hufnagel."

Check out a sneak peek below, and head to MTV News to see the rest.

Posters: News Stories Not Coming Soon to Theaters

With the timely releases of "Zero Dark Thirty," "Margin Call," "The Social Network" and "Game Change," Hollywood has been trending toward turning recent news stories into movies as quickly as possible. The trend continues this month with both "The Fifth Estate" (the WikiLeaks movie) and "Captain Phillips" (the, uh, Captain Phillips movie) hitting theaters.

Hollywood isn't catching every news story, though. We conjured posters for eight news items that probably won't be coming to a theater near you any time soon.

Posters: 'N Sync Members in Justin Timberlake Movies

Justin Timberlake has danced his way into quite the Hollywood career, with charming turns in "The Social Network," "In Time," "Trouble With the Curve" and this week's "Runner Runner," in which we're supposed to believe that he can't afford his college tuition (and that he's young enough to be in college, but we digress).

But why is Justin a movie star and not the other members of his former boy band, 'N Sync? We have a feeling that Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick and JC Chasez possess untapped acting potential that Hollywood would do well to exploit before, you know, 'N Sync gets back together.

With that in mind, we've conjured a few posters from an alternate universe in which every member of 'N Sync got to be in movies. They didn't record an album called "Celebrity" for nothin', you know.

Imagining the 'Seinfeld' Movie Posters: Part II

Last month through a series of fake movie posters we answered the question you've no doubt been asking yourself for the last 15 years: What if someone took the stars of today and cast them in the hilarious made-up films mentioned on "Seinfeld"?

And while the reception was hugely positive, a few fan favorites didn't quite make the cut, resulting in cries of "What about 'The Pain and the Yearning'?" and "How could you forget 'Firestorm'?" being heard across the Internet.

But worry not, insatiable Seinfeld geeks — your requests haven't fallen on deaf ears. Here are the remaining fake Seinfeld movies cast with your favorite Hollywood stars.

The First (Totally Un)official Poster for 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

We came one step closer to the long-awaited film adaptation of "Fifty Shades of Grey" becoming a reality earlier this week with a bit of casting news: namely, that Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam will be getting busy as the lead characters, Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey.

The next step? A poster, of course, whether it's official or not. Here's our take on the film's highly anticipated one-sheet ... and you know all that gasping and bumping and grinding is going to be in IMAX 3D.

How to Make Drinks From Movies

Have you ever wondered how to make an Orange Whip, the drink of choice for John Candy and his highway patrolmen pals in "The Blues Brothers"? Or a French 75, Humphrey Bogart's cocktail of choice from "Casablanca"? Or — perhaps the mother of all movie drinks — a White Russian, the Dude's go-to beverage in "The Big Lebowski"?

In honor of the bar crawl featured in "The World's End," we've tracked down the recipes of some of the most iconic movie drinks and put them on display in handy-dandy how-to infographic form. Check out our shaken and stirred menu below, courtesy of our head bartender Old Red Jalopy.

Imagining the 'Seinfeld' Movie Posters

Remember "Seinfeld"? Of course you do. Remember how every episode was funny about fifty different ways? Remember how occasionally Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer would go to fictitious movies with hilarious titles and characters that were frequently voiced by an off-camera Larry David?

Us, too. That's why we've decided to revisit the best fake movies "Seinfeld" had to offer ... and update their posters to reflect who might be cast in them in 2013. And because, after over 15 years, we'd still rather check out "Sack Lunch" than "The English Patient" any day.

Poster: 'We're the Millers' – Alternate Version

"We're the Millers" offers an outrageous variation on the dysfunctional family scenario as David Clark (Jason Sudeikis), a longtime pot dealer, assembles a fake family (consisting of Jennifer Aniston, Will Poulter and Emma Roberts) as part of his plan to move a sizable shipment of Mary Jane from the U.S. to Mexico.

Our "We're the Millers" offers an outrageous variation on the dysfunctional family scenario as we've assembled a quartet of unrelated famous people who share the same last name and designed a poster around them. What's the plot of this "Millers"? Hey, who can choose just one?

Enjoy what would probably make for a better film below.

8 Movie Stars Smurfed

The idea of turning some of your favorite celebs into little blue people who like to sing "La, La, La-La-La La" (you know how it goes) is abso-smurfly hilarious, and we've got the pics to prove it. Hey, it could've been worse — they could've also been bitten by a certain black fly and turned into Black Smurfs, doomed to exclaim "Gnap!" and hunger for Smurf-tail for the rest of their days.

Upon the release of "The Smurfs 2," check out what it might look like if Gargamel used his evil wizard ways to turn Hollywood into the Smurf Village.

5 Movies Aubrey Plaza Should Remake

The To Do List CBS Films

Aubrey Plaza is well on her way to becoming a national treasure. Her portrayal of April Ludgate, whose hipster sarcasm and stoicism hides a big, huge heart, is one of the best things about "Parks and Recreation." She's making quite a name for herself in the world of indie film, too, with acclaimed turns in last year's "Safety Not Guaranteed" and this week's "The To Do List." Get More »
