'Transformers 4' Gets All Explosiony in Faux Hong Kong

China's been ticking American film studios off a lot lately with all their censoring and movie-banning and, the latest, not paying their ticket sales tabs, but this video is not a case of Hollywood striking back. Or maybe it is? Get More »

9 Blockbusters Recast With Old School Action Figures

Admit it — when you watch the various Hollywood blockbusters that turn some of your favorite childhood toys into a big-screen extravaganzas, this is what you're picturing in your head.

You no doubt remember the action figure poster we conjured for "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" earlier this spring. Reworking the latest cinematic Yo Joe adventure as a showcase for our old toy collection made it the first movie with swivel-arm battle grip. Now, we're taking that several steps further and reimagining several Hollywood action tentpoles trading the flesh-and-blood actors for plastic.

Think about it: They don't eat, need breaks or demand $20 million paychecks. We could be on to something here.

9 Franchises That Need to End Now

Scary Movie 5 Dimension

"Scary Movie 5" opened in theaters this past weekend and if you're like most human beings, you're probably wondering just one thing: Why?

But the fact that Hollywood made yet another "Scary Movie" is really no surprise. After all, most studios believe that while you may not be able to beat a dead horse, you can certainly continue to milk a dead cash cow ... which explains why so many franchises continue to get sequels long after any they've stopped being interesting, fresh or creative. Why make something new when you can make something cheap and derivative instead? Get More »

50 Upcoming Movie Sequels (Yep, 50)

Army of Darkness Universal

Sequels are awesome, plain and simple. Returning to familiar characters and worlds we love is like covering yourself with a warm blanket, although when a sequel is bad it can be like a blanket covered in potato bugs and lice. Studios love sequels because seven times out of ten they open huge, no matter how good they are. Get More »

The Lost Movie Character Yearbook

Everyone was young once: your teachers, your bosses, your parents. And in Hollywood, the land of movie magic, not only were your favorite fictional characters once children, they were all young at the same time.

We know, it doesn't make sense. But what other conclusion could we draw from this, a page from the Hollywood Movie High School yearbook? It features future VIPs like Bruce Wayne and Elle Woods before they hit the big time, Nina Sayers before she donned the Black Swan's feathers, Anton Chigurh before he grew out his bangs in "No Country For Old Men."

Apparently, Mark Wahlberg is the new Shia LaBeouf.

That might just be one of the strangest sentences we've published since the launch of NextMovie, seeing as LaBeouf probably would (and should) kill to have a career like Wahlberg's, but apparently that doesn't matter to Michael Bay, who just scored the aforementioned former Oscar nominee to sit shotgun in his latest "Transformers" movie.

That's right, Wahlberg will be sitting in the driver's seat as the lead in "Transformers 4," Bay confirmed on his website. The pair are currently working together on "Pain & Gain," which arrives in theaters on April 26, 2013. Get More »

It's been a rough week for big tentpole franchises.

Both "Transformers" and "The Avengers" were recently dissed by actors directly involved in those film series, with J.A.R.V.I.S. voice actor Paul Bettany admitting to Digital Spy that he's never actually seen an "Iron Man" movie ("It's about a transforming being of some kind?") and Hugo Weaving saying that it would be pretty much completely fine with him if he was never asked to play Red Skull again ("It was good to do it and try it out, but to be honest, it's not the sort of film I seek out and really am excited by").

Weaving also spoke with Collider about how his involvement in the "Transformers" series, in which he provided the voice of Decepticon leader Megatron, was pretty much "meaningless." Get More »

The 9 Best Pee Scenes in Movies

Millennium Entertainment

At this year's Cannes Film Festival, a steady stream of chatter swirled around "The Paperboy" due to a scene in which Nicole Kidman pees on Zac Efron's face.

"Dear Lord, why?" you might ask. Well, aside from the fact that an Oscar winner urinating on your head grants you thespian superpowers and cures migraines, the starlet's saintly spray also cured the searing pain of a jellyfish sting.

We're sure you're all now bursting to witness this degrading spectacle, and, thankfully, "The Paperboy" opens in select theaters this Friday. So while waiting to go — and you gotta go — let's revisit some timeless tinkles from tinseltown. Because while these golden moments might be listed as our Top 9, but they're all  #1 in our book.

The 20 Sexiest Sci-Fi Babes

Taylor Kitsch as "John Carter," the Confederate captain who finds himself transported to Mars, is certainly a sight to behold (rippling abs, etc). But if anyone can rival him for hottest life on Mars, it's Lynn Collins as princess Dejah Thoris. If we'd known Martians were this sexy, we would colonized the planet years ago, are we right?

Collins is just the latest instance of sexy femininity in sci-fi, a legacy that stretches back decades and encompasses everything from bikini-clad bounty hunters to pleasure robots. Take a look at 20 of the hottest sci-fi sirens to grace the silver screen.

Megan Fox insists it's not a conscious career move, but take one look at the "Transformers" alum's 2012 movie lineup and you'll notice a pattern: comedy, comedy, comedy.

It all begins this week with "Friends With Kids," an indie ensemble co-starring Jennifer Westfeldt (who also wrote and directed), Kristen Wiig, Jon Hamm, Adam Scott, Maya Rudolph and more, in which Fox plays the sultry young girlfriend to new father Scott. Next comes what promises to be a hilarious cameo in summer's "The Dictator" before a more prominent role in Judd Apatow's "Knocked Up" spin-off "This Is Forty."

The famously candid Fox did not disappoint when we sat down with her at the Toronto International Film Festival, discussing everything from her "boring" life away from the party scene to judging her replacement in "Transformers 3" to the possibility of playing Wonder Woman (sorry fanboys … it ain't looking good).
