'Lone Survivor' Trailer: Mark Wahlberg's One Scruffy Soldier

Director Peter Berg is now totally ready to make amends with everyone after dishing out the box office and critical nightmare that was "Battleship" with a straight face last year. While sticking with the soldier-y hoorah format, this time the movie is based on a true story of heroism rather than some ridiculously contrived, loosely-based-off-a-board-game brouhaha.

As presented in this first trailer for Berg's "Lone Survivor," based on the memoir by Marcus Luttrell (whom Mark Wahlberg depicts in the movie), the story centers on the real-life events of July 2005, when four U.S. Navy SEALS hit a recon mission on the Afghan-Pakinstani border to scope out an Al Qaeda leader and found themselves entangled with a Taliban army.  Get More »

GALLERY: 'Friday Night Lights' Stars Ready For Their Close-Ups

If you're like us, you love the holiday season, but kinda wish you could spend it in Dillon, Texas, with the Taylor family.

Actually, this year, you almost can. Coach himself, Kyle Chandler, stars in "Argo" and "Zero Dark Thirty," while Mrs. Coach Connie Britton graces the big screen in "The Fitzgerald Family Christmas." As for the young-uns, you've probably already caught Tyra Collette (Adrianne Palicki) in theaters in "Red Dawn" and might want to make a date to see Matt Saracen (Zach Gilford) in "In Our Nature" this month.

In fact, why wait to get a good look at them? We figured it was time to pay homage to the (incredibly attractive) cast of "Friday Night Lights" as they're about to see their names in lights for real. And, thus, we were inspired to create this gallery of the "Friday Night Lights" gang in movies, past, present and future. We urge you to click through with clear eyes and full hearts.

Hollywood's 'Grand Seduction:' Taylor Kitsch Keeps Getting Work

If the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences began handing out Oscars for Best Agent, this year's prize would be a shoo-in, because whomever is handling Taylor Kitsch's post-meltdown career deserves some sort of award.

That's because, despite the fact that Kitsch headlined two of the biggest bombs of the year — and arguably of all time — in "Battleship" and "John Carter," Variety is reporting that he's already landed his next leading role, as the hunky actor is set to star in the upcoming comedy "Grand Seduction."

But can he seduce viewers into actually seeing this one? Get More »

5 'Savages' Clips Provide Sex, Drugs and Oliver Stone

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 »

8 Guys We Want to See Strip in 'Magic Mike 2'

Yes, we're excited for "The Dark Knight Rises" and "The Amazing Spider-Man." But if you ask us (and you just did – no, really, we heard you), the movie that's going to make our summer special is "Magic Mike." It's not only meat-packed with some of the best-looking men working in Hollywood today, but it's based on Channing Tatum's life. Everything you see on-screen was inspired by actual events, which makes it all that much more tantalizing.

Plus, it's just fun. A lot of summer films offer shirtless dudes, but how many have based an entire movie around their ability to look good shirtless, pantless and dancing? Zero. Mark our words, "Magic Mike" is gonna be huge. And after it blows away the box office, you know what the studio will be thinking: Sequel! We've known we wanted a "Magic Mike 2" ever since the trailer came out.

So, to give the studio a head start, here's eight guys we'd like to see take it all off for a twenty in "Magic Mike 2." Get More »

GALLERY: Celebrities Become 'Savages' at Hollywood Premiere

Glamor never seemed so rough and rugged.

Blake Lively, Taylor Kitsch, Benicio Del Toro, Salma Hayek and other usually refined and cultured types (though not an absent Aaron Johnson, who's probably away on his honeymoon) embraced their primal instincts on the red carpet at the premiere of "Savages," a film that hopefully marks the return of the wild, fiercely creative Oliver Stone that's been somewhat dormant since 1997's "U Turn." Enough with the "Wall Street" sequels — it's time to return to "Natural Born Killers" kind of territory!

Get your hopes up with our collection of pics from the premiere and join the "Savages" in theaters on July 6.

Taylor Kitsch: Sex (Scenes) With Blake Lively Were 'Very Awkward'

What do you get when you put one "Gossip Girl" beauty and one "Friday Night Lights" hottie together in bed on screen? A whole lot of awkward, apparently. We know; it's hard to believe, but according to Taylor Kitch, it's true.

The Canadian thesp got all cozy like with Blake Lively in Oliver Stone's latest, "Savages," which hits theaters July 6, but when asked about their more intimate scenes, he told reporters, "It's very awkward to do, you know, and I was just glad it was over with, to be honest. And it's such a big part of [my character] and who he is, and that's how you meet him. So it's a pretty intense reveal, no pun intended." Get More »
