How to Differentiate Movies With the Same Title

Lee Daniels' The Butler The Weinstein Company

It's a horror story that any movie fan can relate to, Twi-Hard or not: You're watching TV and you see the name of your favorite movie listed on your channel guide, only to flip over and discover that the "Twilight" they're showing doesn't have Edward and Jacob battling for the love of Bella — but instead Gene Hackman and Paul Newman fighting over Susan Sarandon.

You were just punked by Same Name Syndrome. (Hey, at least it also includes a topless Reese Witherspoon.) Get More »

'Gossip Girl' Stars on the Big Screen: Who Does It Best?

Blake Lively in The Savages Universal
It seems like just yesterday that Serena van der Woodsen was coming back from boarding school to find that her former BFF, Blair Waldorf, had become Queen Bee. Tonight, TV's "Gossip Girl" comes to an end, leaving with it a slew of absurdly attractive young stars unemployed.

Since the world of these privileged few thrives on competition, it only made sense to see which GG star's movie career leaves the rest of the beautiful people in the dust. Read our (very scientific) rankings to find out, then weigh in yourself in our poll below. Get More »

Occasionally, a fourth wannabe will try to awkwardly insert himself into the ménage à trois (witness poor Ernie Hudson in "Ghostbusters"), but history's proven that a triad has always struck a chord with audiences. So, sticking with that agreed-upon equation, here's a list of nine trios that prove that, as Schoolhouse Rock taught us, three really is a magic number. Get More »

Savages
Universal Studios

Oliver Stone returns to the hyperviolent outrageousness of "Natural Born Killers" with his hard-boiled crime thriller "Savages," and that's just how we like him.

Based on the acclaimed novel by Don Winslow, it follows two upwardly mobile young pot dealers played by Taylor Kitsch and Aaron Taylor-Johnson as they attempt to rescue their shared polyamorous girlfriend Ophelia (Blake Lively) from a mean old Mexican drug cartel. Salma Hayek, John Travolta, and Benicio Del Toro will help spread some of the glorious mayhem. Get More »
