What exactly does it say about our culture that the two biggest superheroes of the summer movie season are also billionaires, and how does a Cullen family patriarch fit into it all?
Must be rich folk can afford better body armor than your average working class vigilante, and 400-years as a vampire gives you a leg up playing the stockmarket, as Forbes Magazine adds Bruce Wayne (#8) and Tony Stark (#5) as well as "Twilight" vampire Carlisle Cullen (Peter Facinelli) at #3, to their 2012 list of the "Fictional 15," the wealthiest made-up people in the world.

This week: Rooney Mara deservedly earned an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of gothic computer hacker Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher's English-language remake of "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," which co-stars a very un-Bondlike Daniel Craig.
Also new is Kermit's comeback in "The Muppets," Jonah Hill in the comedy "The Sitter," Gary Oldman in the spy thriller "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," and the Blu-ray debut of the violent Japanese phenomenon "Battle Royale." Get More »
Hollywood might be the land of dreams, but the Oscars are the night of fashion — and in an industry in which everyone's a critic, it comes as no surprise that we've got a few opinions on some of the more (ahem) questionable choices of the night.
We know it may be hard to imagine that some of the most stunning people on the planet, clad in some of the world's most coveted labels, could manage to look anything less than perfect, but a handful of stars who walked this carpet have proven that it's possible. Trust us.
So how does one land on our worst dressed list for the Academy Awards? While there's no surefire way, there are a few cardinal sins to avoid, including (but not limited to) long sleeves, dressing inappropriately for one's age, and, last but not least, playing it way too safe. Check out the gallery to get up close and personal with these fashion misses — and take notes in case you ever find yourself at Tinseltown's biggest night. (Hey, it could happen!)

Here's some inside intel for casual movie fans contemplating their Oscar predictions: By the time the Academy Awards roll around, we know who's going to win in pretty much every major category.
Sure, there can be surprises and the occasional too-close-to-call race, but after so many other award functions play out in the lead-up to Oscar night, from the Critics Choice to the Golden Globes to the all the guild gatherings, patterns emerge and some favorites appear unbeatable.
That's why if you're about to head to Vegas (Editor's note: NextMovie does not condone gambling, unless you're sharing …) and lay down some scratch on "The Artist" winning Best Picture, the rewards, at this point, won't be too tempting. Get More »

Oscar Predictions 2012: Who Will Win?
This poll will close at 1 p.m. on February 22, 2012.
Every year around this time, the beautiful people we call Oscar nominees gather for an exclusive luncheon, served with a side of chopped salad and mingling.
This year's nominees include George Clooney, Octavia Spencer, Rooney Mara and more — check out what they wore for their fancy-pants lunch and red carpet stroll.
Who says Hollywood doesn't know sports? With Super Bowl XLVI just days away, many in the movie biz are showing their true colors in preparation for the big game. But the fandom elevates when two storied teams like the New York Giants and the New England Patriots face off.
Here, we take a look at 10 die-hard celebrity fans for each team. Based on this study alone, the Patriots fans may be better-looking; but if a fight were to break out at the bar this weekend, we'd want these Giants fans to have our back.
Look at our friends. Aren't they pretty?
The annual Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue is always packed with gorgeous photos and profiles of the hottest up-and-coming stars, and this year is no different. The three-part cover features 11 of our favorite ladies snapped by high-end photographer Mario Testino in super glam styles.

In "The Woman in Black," Harry Potter himself (or rather, Daniel Radcliffe) takes on the darker side of the supernatural as he investigates a haunted estate and the dark history that brought one of its former residents back from the grave for revenge.
The "Woman" of the title is kind of a pain in the butt, what with all the murdering and all; but not every similarly clad woman is quite so gloomy. Some of our favorite filmic females have donned a dark look for some memorable roles, no doubt bolstered by the fact that black is slimming.
As Wesley Snipes said in "Passenger 57": "Always bet on black."
Move over, Blake Lively. There's a new Gt girl in town. The buzz around Hollywood is that "Dragon Tattoo" star Rooney Mara (who just nabbed herself an Oscar nod, btw) has signed on to play the lead in Steven Soderbergh's latest, "Side Effects," a role that was previously earmarked for Lively.
The thriller, which was previously known as "Bitter Pill," is set in the world of psychotherapy. We're scared already. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story follows a troubled and depressed young woman (Mara) who is coping with the imminent release of her husband from jail and begins to take a new prescription drug to… er… help ease her nerves—only, it turns out to have unforeseen consequences. Dun dun dun. Get More »
