"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 »
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 »
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."
Hollywood Movie High School Rules!
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").
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.

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).

Michael Bay is currently working on the fourth (yes, fourth) installment of the blockbuster "Transformers" franchise, but it doesn't seem like anyone else is.
According to Mr. Fergie Josh Duhamel, none of the original cast seems to be gearing up to partake in this go-round: "I don't think anybody's doing it. I know Shia [LaBoeuf]'s not doing it. I don't think Tyrese or Rosie [Huntington-Whiteley] or anybody else is doing it."
Guess that means him too.
The Robot Master has accepted his destiny.
This Valentine's Day will be one to remember for lovers of the giant robot aliens from the planet Cybertron as Michael Bay has officially announced that he'll be keeping with tradition and calling the shots on "Transformers 4," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The official word comes hot on the heels of "Transformers" producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura telling MTV News that the fourth installment will hit theaters in 2014. He also confirms that the film will be something of a reboot, though specifics of the new story have yet to be worked out. It's also unknown whether any of the original cast members will return -- though, as far as the non-human characters are concerned, we can probably definitely count on "Optimus Prime and Bumblebee" coming back.
