It didn't take long for Rooney Mara to go from acting in student films at NYU to giving an on-screen Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) a much-needed reality check in "The Social Network." Being handpicked by David Fincher for the lead in "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" is taking Mara to the next level.

All eyes are on her as the protagonist of one of the most anticipated films of the season. Get More »
It's clear that choosing to work in Hollywood can be brutal, but for some, the pain is literal.
Aaron Sorkin, the Oscar-winning writer behind "The Social Network" and "The West Wing," knows just how rough it can be. No, seriously.

Oscars, schmoscars. When it comes to the best movie of 2010, our friends at the MTV Movie Awards have their own ideas about which films should make the cut.
It was, in the end, a pretty cool year for movies. In 2011, we feasted on twisty thrillers, fantasy flicks about wizards and vampires, and a movie about some site called Facebook. All of them made us think, jump, swoon, laugh and even cry.
