The Bible says that a little child will lead us. Here at NextMovie, we're better with, you know, images and videos than we are with book-learnin', so we took this as best as we know how. If we must live by the example of a little (movie) child, it may as well be Megan Charpentier, who plays a feral tween in "Mama," the scarytastic flick coming out this weekend.
While little Victoria (Charpentier) must grapple with whether to accept the maternal warmth of foster mom Jessica Chastain or the company of a centuries-old murder-ghost, the titular Mama, we have all kinds of day-to-day stuff to worry about that kids just don't have to handle.
Keeping the little-child maxim in mind, we turned to feral child Victoria to get her perspective on some recent events. Read on to know how you should feel about the world as of late. Get More »

Matt Damon and John Krasinksi's upcoming drama "Promised Land" doesn't open until December 28, but today the duo reached the real promised land three weeks early, as they appeared together on the MTV's viral movie sensation, "The Yes/No Show."
Anchored as always by the lovely and talented Josh Horowitz, Damon and Krasinksi faced and courageously answered hard hitting questions about George Clooney, peeing in Damon's shower and the Q rating of Krasinski man region.
Plus, there's also a little bit about "Promised Land" in there somewhere as well. So check it out, courtesy of MTV. Because you just can't say no to "The Yes/No Show."
Matt Damon is an Academy Award-winning screenwriter. Yeah, we forgot too. After his acting career took off in the afterglow of "Good Will Hunting," Damon settled into a nice groove acting in hit after hit, but only co-wrote one other screenplay, for director Gus Van Sant's cryptic experiment "Gerry."
That's all changed now that he's reunited with Van Sant, back in feel-good "Will Hunting" mode, who's going to take Damon to the "Promised Land"… and possibly the Oscars, as seen in the new trailer via iTunes. Get More »
