Production on the big-screen adaptation of John Green's "The Fault in Our Stars" may have begun a little more than a week ago, but Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort's co-star Nat Wolff is just now stepping in front of the camera. The actor took to Twitter today to share a first-day selfie.

Nat, who originally auditioned for the role of Augustus Waters, is playing Isaac, Gus' buddy and fellow Cancer Kid Support Group member. (He's most likely wearing shades in the snap because his character lost an eye to cancer at a young age.)

Whether Monday's "Fifty Shades of Grey" casting news left you squealing in delight or seeing a shade in keeping with Christian Grey's Red Room of Pain, actors Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson are here to stay as the bad-boy billionaire and his paramour Anastasia Steele (so you can kindly put away your petitions, okay?). And amid all this furor, an important detail has been overlooked: Director Sam Taylor-Johnson has yet to cast the film's other hot young couple, Kate Kavanaugh and Elliot Grey.

Fans of E.L. James' best-selling series will surely recognize these names. Kate is Ana's best friend and roommate—a budding journalist who comes down with the flu the day of her big interview with Christian Grey. She sends Ana in her place, and the rest is, well, you know. Elliot, on the other hand, is Christian's easy-going adoptive brother, who embarks on a relationship with the feisty Kate after meeting her at a bar.

Trish SummervilleCostume designer Trish Summerville is once again teaming up with a top-notch retailer to bring film fashion to your closet. Much like "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo"-inspired line she launched with H&M in 2011, Trish is collaborating with Net-A-Porter for "The Hunger Games" collection Capitol Couture, according to film studio Lionsgate.

"I am extremely proud of the designs that we created for ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ and there’s no partner more appropriate for ‘Capitol Couture’ than the world’s most cutting-edge luxury retailer," Trish said in a statement.

The collection, which will go on sale in November ahead of "Catching Fire"'s theatrical debut, will feature 16 ready-to-wear pieces, in addition to jewelry and leather goods designed by Trish.

If you're wondering what the big deal is with our exclusive redband trailer for next year's comedy, "Neighbors," we've got two words for you: Zac Efron. And two more: Dave Franco. And also, two more: TIGHT SHIRTS. (When they're wearing them, that is—and on at least one memorable occasion in this preview, Zac...well, isn't.) Ready to watch? YEAH YOU ARE.

Featuring Zac and Dave as a pair of powerful mischief-making bros with pretty faces and phenomenal eyebrows, and Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne as a young married-with-kid couple living next door to the frat house where they take up residence, "Neighbors" looks to be a sort of "Animal House" meets "Old School" meets "Knocked Up" combination—the kind of movie that makes you laugh, then wince, then laugh harder—with the bonus draw of more on-screen togetherness for Seth and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, who also makes an appearance. (We love their bro chemistry, and we're not ashamed to say so.) The movie is out in theaters May 2014.

Fifty ShadesBy now, you've probably heard the thrilling news that the movie adaptation of E.L. James' "Fifty Shades of Grey" has officially tapped a talented-but-unfamiliar twosome to play the film's pair of leading hotties: Dakota Johnson in the role of naive, virginal college grad Anastasia Steele, and Charlie Hunnam as narcissistic riding-crop-wielder Christian Grey. Which is very exciting! That is, unless you're one of the millions of fans who caught wind of the casting news only to stand up, all aflutter, and shout "But who are these people?!"

Don't worry. We're here to help.

Dakota Johnson is an actress and former model (you might've spotted her in a Mango campaign), and her natural, beachy blond look has made her an easy choice for lighthearted roles—but for her part in "Fifty Shades," we can probably expect a dye job.

Ah, the English countryside. Rolling hills, charming cottages, cute British boys with even cuter British accents...all in all, not the worst place for an American girl to spend a much-needed summer vacation! Oh, but there's a catch: Just when you've finally gotten used to Marmite and the metric system, and just when it looks like something might finally happen between you and the delectable hottie who lives just down the country lane, your holiday abroad turns become an ill-conceived exile in a strange, hostile land that's quickly devolving into chaos.

No, this isn't just a bizarre scenario we came up with in order to entertain ourselves on a dull Friday morning; it's the fascinating premise of the upcoming movie "How I Live Now"—based on the 2004 YA novel by Meg Rosoff—which features Saoirse Ronan as an American teenager, Daisy, whose summer stay in a remote English village unhappily coincides with the sudden onset of a third world war.

Vampire AcademyFans got their first taste of the big-screen adaptation of Richelle Mead's "Vampire Academy" earlier this month with the bloody fabulous debut of a teaser trailer. (SHIRTLESS DIMITRI WHAT!!!!!!!) But with a big-screen bow more than six months away, we're already bloodlusting for more.

Sooooooo... we hopped on the phone with screenwriter Daniel Waters (probably best known for penning 1988's "Heathers") to get all the dirty details about the Zoey Deutch-starring film, including what's changed from the book and how "Vampire Academy" will be different than other teen flicks.

DivergentAre you dying for another glimpse of what's in store from the upcoming "Divergent" movie? Would you enjoy some sneak-peeky behind-the-scenes goodness featuring the actors, plus author Veronica Roth? Have you ever been like, This whole "faction" business is confusing and I would like Kate Winslet and Shailene Woodley to explain it to me, personally, because we are such good friends!? Well, aren't you the luckiest duck in Ducktown? Because there's a new preview making its way 'round the internets in which ALL OF THESE THINGS HAPPEN. Check it!

In this official "Factions" preview from the folks at Summit, the cast of "Divergent" are all on hand to talk about just what makes the story's futuristic society tick: specifically, the organization of its members into five distinct factions, each based on a single, unifying core value. Plus, there's some great footage that shows the movie being made—including a better look at the ceremony in which Beatrice "Tris" Prior makes the choice that changes her life, and a shot of Shailene taking the plunge from that rooftop (which leaves no question as to whether the actress performed that stunt herself. Nerves of steel, that one!)

Mike BirbigliaWe probably don't have to tell you that the movie adaptation of "The Fault in Our Stars" has officially begun filming in Pittsburgh—no doubt we've all watched John Green's video missive from the set, also known as "Ansel Elgort paints miniature figurines," several dozen times in a state of total panting/frothing excitement—but did you know that, technically, the cast of the movie isn't even complete yet? Not only are we still waiting on a grizzled, crotchety old dude to play the reclusive author, Peter Van Houten (and please, oh please, let it be Philip Seymour Hoffman?), but according to a tweet from John Green himself, comedian Mike Birbiglia has just snagged the previously unfilled role of Patrick.

Patrick is the overenthusiastic leader of the cancer support group in which Hazel and Augustus, the story's key couple, meet for the first time. A survivor of testicular cancer (and therefore, the proud non-owner of exactly zero testicles), the man is a cliche of Pollyanna positivity who is eyed skeptically by both of the "TFiOS" protagonists. The man playing him, Mike Birbiglia, is a comedian, writer and actor who's been in a handful of films, but is probably best known for an oft-cited personal anecdote about having jumped out of a second-story window while sleepwalking.

The countdown is on for "Vampire Academy"'s theatrical debut on February 14, 2014. And while the buzz for the flick, adapted from Richelle Mead’s bestselling books, continues to grow, two of its stars, Zoey Deutch and Sarah Hyland, just hope fans are pleased by their big-screen take.

“I just hope that people enjoy it—fans that have already read the series, as well as newcomers—I hope they enjoy this story,” Zoey told MTV News at the VMAs over the weekend.
