Jessica Chastain — you go, grrrl!

The Oscar-nominated star of "Zero Dark Thirty" trades her trademark red mane for a short jet-black 'do (complete with accompanying tattoos) for her goth punk turn in "Mama," the Guillermo del Toro-produced frightfest about a rather, shall we say, over-protective ghost.

Is Brie Larson the Next Emma Stone?

In Hollywood, hot young starlets are a dime a dozen. Notwithstanding the superficial appeal of their physical attributes, actresses often pour themselves into any movie for the exposure, inevitably rendering themselves irrelevant because they failed to find the right film to showcase their real talents.

Since her breakthrough role in "Superbad," Emma Stone has shrewdly distinguished herself as first among equals by choosing challenging films that took advantage of her charm and versatility. And while her star is still ascending via roles in terrific films like "Easy A," "Zombieland" and "The Help," not to mention potential blockbusters like "The Amazing Spider-Man" and "Gangster Squad," it remains fascinating to see who might next follow in her footsteps, distinguishing themselves from a deluge of beautiful faces to become something truly special.

With the release of "21 Jump Street" this week, it seems like moviegoers may have found an heir apparent: Brie Larson. Get More »

Drunk People Are Hilarious: The Mashup

Animal House
Universal

We at NextMovie don't condone drinking to excess. No sir. Nuh-uh. Alcohol is bad, mmkay?

That said, while watching people get drunk in real life isn't always a barrel of laughs (ever been to a St. Patrick's Day parade?), watching people in movies get drunk can be downright hilarious.

They fall on their faces! They say and do crazy things! (Bless you, Will Ferrell, you are indeed going streaking.) They're far more entertaining -- and infinitely more clever -- than your buddy Joe after he's broken open a bottle of tequila. Get More »

Staff Picks: Brooke Tarnoff's Top 10 Movies of 2010

Weinstein Co.

Full disclosure: I didn't see every movie that came out this year -- or even every movie that sent critics grabbing for their Blackberries during closing credits to tweet the words "Oscar contender," "performance of the year," and/or "ZOMG ur gonna freak."

I was sick the day of the "127 Hours" advance screening, and if I'm being totally honest, a little sick every time I thought of seeing it -- and James Franco's arm... and James Franco's NO ARM -- when it finally landed in theaters.

What can I say? I love critically acclaimed films, but I'm also a giant baby. Get More »

Michael Cera: Real Life Rock Star? W. T. F.

Scott Pilgrim
Universal

We usually don't put out news articles aimed at individual people, but today we had to make an exception. So if you happen to be reading this, Knives Chau, we just wanted you to know that the new indie band Mister Heavenly is about to go on tour -- and you really, really don't want to miss the performance by the bassist.

Actually, that's true of anyone else reading this as well, even if you aren't a fictional character from "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" like Knives Chau. That's because life has once again begun imitating art, as "Scott Pilgrim" lead Michael Cera, who frontlined that film's rock band The Sex Bob-ombs, has decided to pick up his four-string in real life as bass player for the new supergroup Mister Heavenly.
