At this point, there are probably no more than a dozen people left on the planet who haven't read Ransom Riggs' bestselling novel, "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children," in which a precocious teenager loses his grandfather, travels to Wales, and has a series of astounding adventures involving dental tentacles and World War II wormholes and creepy vintage photographs. But if you've been waiting for the paperback—because it's cheaper, or you like floppy books, or you didn't yet know how to read when the hardcover came out last year—then now's your chance to snag it!
The book is out in stores now, and in honor of its release, we've got something... well, peculiar to show you. It's an image from the "Miss Peregrine's" sequel, "Hollow City," which picks up right where the first book left off, following the merry band of peculiar orphans as they travel to London in search of answers.
This one goes out to all you Lermaniacs.
In anticipation of the upcoming release of the long-awaited "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters," Hollywood Crush has gotten its sticky little fingers on a super-fresh profile banner featuring the titular half-blood—and let's just say the son of Poseidon is totally living up to the Greek-god hype.
Logan Lerman reprises his role as Percy Jackson in the sequel, in which he and friends Annabeth (Alexandra Daddario), Grover (Brandon T. Jackson) and Tyson (Douglas Smith) go on an epic adventure to retrieve the Golden Fleece—the only thing that can rescue Camp Half-Blood from peril.
This Friday brings "The Bling Ring" to theaters, starring Emma Watson and Taissa Farmiga (among others) as illustrious young burglars in the Hollywood Hills. And with just a few days to go before the big release, a host of new images from the film are out and about on the internet today! Don't worry, no big reveals here; most of the stills just feature the cast members looking various degrees of teen-angsty. (Although there are a couple shots of them getting mobbed by press outside the courtroom, since, y'know, the whole reason we know this story to begin with is that they all got caught.)
For the uninitiated, "The Bling Ring" is based on the bizarre true story of the teenage bandits who robbed a slew of celebrity homes back in 2008; the group made off with millions of dollars worth of goodies, mostly in the form of clothes that were coveted by the lady ringleaders. And true to life, they're all wearing some pretty fabulous (and no doubt stolen) outfits in these shots. We particularly dig Emma in what looks like a seriously luxurious mint-green mink.

We can't believe it's taken us nearly 10 years to say this, but the sequel to every fashionista’s go-to tome—"The Devil Wears Prada"—is finally here! "Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns," by Lauren Weisberger, is out today!
The book picks up a decade after the events of the first installment, with Andy and her former co-worker Emily joining forces to start a new publication of their own, The Plunge, a high-end bridal magazine. And in the midst of some serious heartbreak and betrayal, Andy finds herself right where she started, directly in the path of the woman we love to hate, Miranda Priestly.
In celebration of the sequel's release, we've gotten our hot little hands on an EXCLUSIVE interview with audiobook narrator Megan Hilty (of "Smash" fame).
Hear that? It's the sound of school bells ringing at St. Vladimir's Academy, where classes are officially in session for all the pretty, young Moroi and their dhampir guardians-in-training. Which is to say, the cast and crew of "Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters" have assembled in London, where filming began today on the big-screen adaptation of Richelle Mead's best-selling vampire novel!
"First day of filming!!" actress Zoey Deutch, who plays Rose Hathaway, tweeted early this morning, along with an image of her trailer and a weathered brick building in the background, which we can only assume is the facade of the boarding school for bloodsuckers.
With filming finally underway, it seemed as good a time as any to fill in any lingering holes you may have regarding the long-awaited production. So, without further ado, here are five things you need to know about "Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters."
Remember when we told you that the delicious George Blagden had been tapped to narrate the latest audiobook in "The Bane Chronicles," the exciting companion series to "The Infernal Devices" that explores the life and times of one Magnus Bane? Well! Now you can hear all about that same thing from the actor's own (sensuous, full, ridiculously kissable) lips: just click to enjoy an EXCLUSIVE interview with George in which he talks about his first ever audiobook experience as the voice of "The Runaway Queen," what it was like to go back to France—and back in time—after his work on "Les Miserables," and what he likes best about Magnus Bane. It's just his voice, but daaaamn, what a voice. Prepare to go weak in the knees at the way he says "narrator." Also, "swashbuckling." Also, all the other words in the English language.
Said George, of his time in the soundbooth: "The recording process, quite honestly, has been terrifying in amongst being incredibly rewarding. It's kind of amazing that an author gets to let you take their work and give voice to these characters that they've created. You have a feeling of immense responsibility and you don't want to get it wrong."
The big-screen adaptation of Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl's bewitching "Beautiful Creatures" hits DVD and Blu-ray today, and in honor of all the Southern gothic intrigue and enchantment, Hollywood Crush has conjured up an EXCLUSIVE sneak peek at a featurette from the release.
And we recommend getting yourself to the nearest fainting couch ASAP, because this clip may cause uncontrollable swooning. Because it's all about luuuuuurve. More specifically, the love between human Ethan Wate and caster Lena Duchannes, and what it is exactly that draws them to one another (y'know, besides a Civil War-era entanglement that may or may not be doomed to repeat itself...)
Is it getting hot in here? A month to the day after "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" trailer blazed at the MTV Movie Awards, a new poster for the dystopian sequel is burning up the internet (via The Hunger Games Instagram).
The one-sheet depicts Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence) on the edge of a precipice (metaphor!), with signature bow and arrow in hand and a fluffy Mockingjay-shaped cloud at her back. The tagline atop the poster reads: "The sun persists in rising, so I make myself stand."
Like many of you, we here at MTV have a soft spot for "The Mortal Instruments" magic-doer Magnus Bane. (Perhaps it's because our names both start with the letter "M"?) And there are few things we love more than debuting EXCLUSIVE content featuring the glittered one, like first-look images and on-set interviews. So here we go again dishing up a hunky helping of the High Warlock of Brooklyn. Are you ready for it? (OF COURSE YOU ARE.)
Take a long, lusty look at this new character poster featuring Magnus, which boasts the tagline: "An instrument of chaos."
The August 23 release marks actor Godfrey Gao's American film debut, and he admitted to a few nerves during production when we visited him last year on the set.
What a week it's been for fans of Veronica Roth's dystopian drama "Divergent"! Following yesterday's news that a screenwriter has already been hired for the big-screen adaptation of the series' second novel, "Insurgent," Veronica appeared on the "Today" show this morning to debut the cover for the concluding chapter, "Allegiant." And what a beaut it is!
A few weeks ahead of today's big reveal, we hopped on the phone with Veronica to talk about the end of her trilogy, the currently in-production "Divergent" and the "incredible" chemistry between leads Shailene Woodley and Theo James. Keep reading for our entire discussion!
