It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a young actress on the A-list train must be in want of at least one Scream Queen role on her resume before she hits superstardom...or at least, that's what our good friend Jane Austen would say if she were a) a movie fan and b) not dead. Because it's true: A starring role in a first-rate Hollywood horror flick is one of those things that just about every up-and-coming actress has to cross off her bucket list. And in honor of Fall Movie Preview Week, we've got an EXCLUSIVE clip from the scare-tastic horror debut of THE most talked-about lady in the entertainment biz. Yep, you guessed it: It's Jennifer Lawrence, committing a classic horror film faux-pas in "The House at the End of the Street."
A late night, a dark street, a young woman alone in an isolated house who hears a mysterious noise and goes outside unarmed to investigate like a total dumb dumb... Ah, yes, this is just the well-traveled horror territory we know and love. (Honestly, girl: At least grab a frying pan with which to defend yourself. A fork? A spatula! Anything!)
If we had attended high school with Channing Tatum, we probably never would have wanted to graduate. But graduate we did, and now we're faced with a lifetime of reunions to look forward to (or dread). It's a scenario Channing knows all too well evidenced by his upcoming film "10 Years."
The movie follows a group of late 20-somethings who return to their hometown for a night of hijinks with their high school crew, and stars pretty much every young actor in the Hollywood yearbook, including Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Justin Long, Ari Graynor, Scott Porter, Rosario Dawson, Kate Mara and Chris Pratt.
In honor of the film's September 14 release and our continued week-long preview of all movies fall, we're giving you an EXCLUSIVE look at "10 Years."
In this brand-new clip, Channing acts opposite real-life wife and "Step Up" co-star Jenna in an aww-inducing scene. Though, if you ask us, we think very little acting went into Channing looking lovingly at Jenna in the bathroom mirror. That goofy grin is just too genuine.
We've had a close eye on the darkly funny "Bachelorette" since the trailer dropped last month, promising a sort of Neil-Labute-meets-Judd-Apatow take on the bridesmaid screwball comedy (along with an unusual straight-lady role for perennial favorite Rebel Wilson, yaaaaay!). And if you're wondering whence comes the enthusiasm, this EXCLUSIVE new clip should clear things up—featuring a bizarre little scene in which Lizzy Caplan needs another drink, Isla Fisher needs to be sedated and Kirsten Dunst needs to play an evil, sidewalk-licking hosebeast beyotch all the time because she is really eerily excellent at it.
Despite the fact that we're all dying—dying!—to get pitchslapped by Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson in the upcoming a cappella flick "Pitch Perfect," it will, alas, be October before this story from the sordid and scandalous world of college a cappella makes its way to the big screen. But as part of our Fall Movie Preview Week, MTV has scored a little vocal warmup to sweeten the wait: an EXCLUSIVE clip that shows just what sort of instrument-free awesomeness you can expect from the movie's many, many musical numbers!
This melodic scene features the movie's all-girl singing group, the Bellas, limbering up their music-makers and doing a little freestyle remixing before the big competition that pits them against their a cappella arch rivals in a battle for vocal supremacy. What happens when a dozen gifted girls start harmonizing to Bruno Mars' "Just the Way You Are" in an empty pool? Pure magic, that's what! (Plus, more evidence of the cast's unmistakable talent for any recalcitrant doubters who didn't think that Anna Kendrick could carry a tune.)
Show of hands: Who here appreciates a fine-looking man in a finely woven, snuggly sweater? Everyone? OK! Do we have something for you then! For today's Fall Movie Preview Week feature, we've nabbed not one but two EXCLUSIVE images from "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," both featuring the always alluring Robert Pattinson.
We must, however, give the advantage to this first photo in which the 26-year-old actor is handsomely clad in chunky knitwear, on his way to ask the Denali coven to aid his cause against the Volturi. I mean, yummmmmy, right?
This one is for all of the "Unwind" fans out there who've been eagerly anticipating the release of Neal Shusterman's highly anticipated sequel "UnWholly." Hollywood Crush has been blessed with the excellent opportunity to bring you your first look at the book trailer for "UnWholly," which will finally be available everywhere on August 28. Feast your eyes on the glorious action-packed, expertly packaged preview in the video below.
The text of the trailer teases that "'Unwind' grabbed you by the spine, [but] 'UnWholly' will tear it out." The footage opens with a gunman in front of a young boy, teasing with him about running for his life before he tranqs him.
"I'll give you a fighting chance," says the gunman. "If you can make it to the front door before I tranq you, I'll let you go."
Our literature-loving hearts have been aching—ACHING I TELL YOU—for the September 21 release of "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," the big-screen adaptation of Stephen Chbosky's arresting, coming-of-age novel. And with a little more than a month to wait, well, let's just say we're performing plenty of downward-facing dogs and lighting lots of aromatherapy candles to keep ourselves calm. You know what also soothes our spirit? EXCLUSIVE images straight from our friends at Summit Entertainment.
To wit, a trio of never-before-seen stills, featuring "Perks" stars Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller, have landed in our laps, and we're in a sharing mood.
For the uninitiated, "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" follows shy loner Charlie (Logan) during his freshman year of high school, as he acclimates to his new environment and eventually befriends step-siblings Sam (Emma) and Patrick (Ezra), who introduce him to a world of sex, drugs, and, yes, rock 'n' roll.
The Quarter Quell won't commence until November 22, 2013, but you can re-enter the arena post haste thanks to "The Hunger Games" on DVD and Blu-ray, which drops August 18. And in celebration, our sponsors at Lionsgate have sent a silver parachute featuring an EXCLUSIVE clip from the highly anticipated release.
In case you were wondering whether Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Elizabeth Banks were as cool as they seemed on screen, well, I think this clip proves the affirmative. Because here they are signing autographs for the hordes of kids who served as extras during District 12's reaping...and introducing themselves! "I play Katniss," you can hear Jen tell one child. Um, adorable. Also of note, Liam thinks Elizabeth is handsome, even in her partially removed Effie makeup.

We just can't say no when it comes to a song-and-dance movie like "Sparkle." Fortunately we're in the homestretch as the film comes out August 17, and here to tide us over is a sneak peak into the project, which makes us want to put on our go-go boots and sing like The Supremes (after all, the story is inspired by the Diana Ross-led group).
The movie is a remake of a 1976 film by the same name set in the 1960s, which follows "Sparkle" (played by "American Idol" season six winner Jordin Sparks) and her two sisters (Carmen Ejogo and Tika Sumpter) as they navigate the road to becoming a Motown sensation.
There's been no missing out on the amazing buzz for Jessica Khoury's new novel, "Origin"—the story of a flawless teenage girl born in a lab, bred for immortality, and kept safe and secret from the outside world—has already been optioned for film and become one of the most-anticipated books to hit shelves this fall. But with another month to go before you can get your hands on the story (and GAH, who knows how long before the movie gets made?!), wouldn't it be nice to watch an EXCLUSIVE trailer that teases just what kind of awesome sci-fi sexiness is in store come the book's release September? Well, hey, guess what we've got!
This fascinating trailer introduces us to Pia, living in guarded isolation behind a glass wall, the very first member of a genetically engineered race of immortal humans. But despite having a pretty posh life in her private terrarium—including exclusive access to a really great pool and all the (intermittently censored) books she could ever want to read—Pia can't help feeling that something is missing...and that something, of course, is a scorchingly attractive teenage boy who stumbles up against her glass house without his shirt on. And, um, yeah; under the circumstances, we would have thrown a chair through the window too.
