The big-screen adaptation of James Dashner's dystopian drama "The Maze Runner" has been a long time coming (you'll recall the novel was optioned, like, three years ago), so we wouldn't blame you for taking an "I'll believe it when I see it" approach to the film. With that in mind, we have just one thing to say to you: see!
On Friday, actor Will Poulter (who plays Gally), took to Twitter to share an image of he and co-star Dylan O'Brien (who plays Thomas) sparring during a round of fight training.
"Me and @dylanobrien in wrestling practice. #OutOfOurDepth #WeJustWannaHug" he wrote. Earlier in the day, he tweeted: "Wicked day. Had a great read through with the whole cast and stunt training all afternoon! Gladers are now in the gym!"
Anyone who's ever been the new kid on the block knows just how awkward it is to find yourself thrown together with two close friends who've been besties since forever—and that's even when said friends aren't two Hollywood A-listers who've been joined at the proverbial hip practically since before you were born. So when we caught up with Carey Mulligan on the red carpet at the premiere of "The Great Gatsby", we had to ask: Was there any middle-school-style weirdness when it came to starring alongside Tobey Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio, who've been BFFs for 25 years?
In a word: nope!
"We all started hanging out," Carey said of her early days on the set, before going on to say that she had nothing but compliments for her co-stars: "Leo was incredible from the beginning, they both were. They were so generous."
With artists like Beyoncé, Florence Welch, Lana Del Ray and will.i.am hitting high notes on the Jay-Z produced "Great Gatsby" soundtrack, you know it's going to be an album you'll play over...and over...and over again. But as we count down the hours (repeat: HOURS) until the soundtrack drops on Tuesday, we're taking an EXCLUSIVE deep dive into the album with director Baz Luhrmann, Jay-Z and the film's stars.

We've already had "Sex and the City" a whopping two times on the big screen, but according to star Sarah Jessica Parker, the franchise might be up for one more roll in the hay: At a recent event promoting her new digital series, "City Ballet," SJP admitted to Extra that she thinks there's still enough juice left in the Carrie Bradshaw narrative to squeeze out a third film.
"I've been saying...there is one story left to tell," she said. "If it's, in fact, the right time and the right place that maybe we should tell it. It would be wonderful. It’s fun to ponder."
Why, yes! Yes, it is. So, let's ponder together: Is a third "Sex and the City" movie something we want? Should Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha be reunited one last time? Or do we all need to just let it die, already, and get our urban sex comedy fix somewhere else? What do you think?
We're beginning to think Bella Thorne better look into hiring a personal assistant (if she doesn't have one already), because girl keeps racking up the responsibilities. Just days after it was announced the Disney star had inked a multi-book deal with Random House comes news (via Deadline) that Bella has landed a role in the film "Blended."
The romantic comedy re-teams Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore as two single parents who end up on a nightmare blind date at a family resort—with their kids in tow. Bella will play Adam's daughter. The film is due in theaters May 23, 2014.
It's been more than a month since "Secret Life of the American Teenager" star Shailene Woodley was cast as Hazel Lancaster in the big-screen adaptation of John Green's "The Fault in Our Stars"—and with not one peep as to who would play her swoon-worthy love interest, Augustus Waters... That is, until now.
Variety reports that five young actors comprise the shortlist for the highly coveted role of Hazel's fellow cancer support group member. Those men are: Brenton Thwaites, Nat Wolff, Nick Robinson, Noah Silver and Ansel Elgort. All five are relative newcomers to the film industry, and according to the report, none is considered a front-runner at this point.
The role of Augustus is a meaty one, to be sure, one requiring a level of depth and sensitivity not often inherent in a teenage boy. With that in mind, let's take a look at the contenders:
We haven't seen former "Saturday Night Live" player Kristen Wiig in a leading film role since 2011's raunchy romp "Bridesmaids," so thank Gilly that the first trailer for her upcoming comedy "Girl Most Likely" has finally hit internet (via Yahoo!).
Kristen stars as failed playwright Imogene, who after a mental breakdown ends up back at her childhood home in New Jersey and back in the less-than-capable hands of her mother (played by Annette Bening), who's shacking up with her oddball boyfriend (played by Matt Dillon). And—surprise!—Imogene's room's been rented out to fledgling pop star Lee (played by Darren Criss). But, really, that doesn't sound all bad. Slumber party, people!
After destroying demons in August's "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," star Lily Collins may just turn her steely gaze to the walking dead.
Variety reports that Lily is in talks for the lead role of heroine Elizabeth Bennett in the big-screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's monster mash-up "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies."
The film's been through a number of iterations since it was optioned by Lionsgate way back in December 2009, with Natalie Portman slated to star and David O. Russell directing. Burr Steers ("17 Again," "Charlie St. Cloud") will now helm the project.
There's no need to commit a felony to get your hands on the latest piece of swag from Sofia Coppola's upcoming "The Bling Ring" because we're giving it to you for free! Feast your eyes on the cheeky one-sheet for the June 14 release, which stars Emma Watson and Taissa Farmiga.
"Living the dream, one heist at a time," reads the poster's tagline—a fitting slogan for a film based on an actual group of teen and 20-something bandits who robbed the homes of the rich and famous, including Paris Hilton and Kirsten Dunst (who both, coincidentally, make cameos).
After so many months of waiting and hoping and aching for "The Great Gatsby" to be released at last, we had entered a state of impatient longing not entirely unlike that of the titular character...but with a much happier outcome, fortunately, as the film finally premiered last night in New York City, and it was lovely! (Also, nobody was cheated on, run over or shot, which is always nice.)
The premiere was a major party attended by all the film's stars and then some—all sporting decidedly modern looks in comparison to the jazz-age fashions featured onscreen.
Nina Dobrev, who isn't in the movie, wore the most deco getup of the night with a black-and-gold sheath dress that mirrored the metalwork design featured in all of the "Gatsby" promotional materials; Carey Mulligan was stunning in a red strapless dress and sleek hair; and Isla Fisher covered up in a floral-print, three-quarter sleeved dress that faded to (semi-sheer) black as it reached her feet.
