Mortal InstrumentsMerry Mundanes: Just six sleeps stand between us and the theatrical debut of "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," based on the best-selling urban fantasy by Cassandra Clare! And with the release oh-so close, Sony has released another brand-new clip (via Yahoo!), featuring stars Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower and Robert Sheehan.

In this scene we find our heroes stumbling into an abandoned church that doubles as the Shadowhunter Institute. (Pretty cool how it magically appears as the facade melts away, huh?) Clary stumbles upon entering, succumbing to the demon bite she sustained during an earlier ruckus. She makes a feeble attempt at a joke about Jace rending his garments to bandage her wound, with the bad boy responding in his characteristically snarky manner: "If you wanted me to take off my clothes, you should have just asked."

Millions of Edward Cullen enthusiasts know Stephenie Meyer as the woman behind their literary love, but the "Twilight" author's taken a bit of a break from her own writing to bring another author's novel to the big screen.

Enter "Austenland," the 2007 novel by Stephenie's friend Shannon Hale. The story follows 30-something Jane Hayes, who is so enamored of "Pride and Prejudice" suitor Mark Darcy that she takes to an Austen-themed retreat to try and experience the "real thing" for herself. Stephenie knew the story would be perfect for the silver screen, so she created her Fickle Fish production company to make it happen.

"It came about kind of backwards," Stephenie explained to MTV News' Josh Horowitz. "I read it years and years ago, I think before 'New Moon' was out, and really loved it, and just said, 'Oh, this is so great. It'd be such a great movie. We should do that some day,' because I'm friends with the author. And she's like, 'Totally, in 10 years with a camcorder, we'll go to England and just film it on the fly. And then [screenwriter/director] Jerusha Hess got involved, and then we were like, 'Now we're professional! Now it's really going to happen with real cameras!'"

Vampire AcademyAfter a tantalizing taste, we can finally (fully) bite into the first trailer for "Vampire Academy," thanks to a first look on Yahoo!

Ahead of its premiere, author Richelle Mead speculated via Twitter that most reactions would be along the lines of "!!!omg*flail*!!!mustwatchagain!!!" and, well, it's like she can read our minds or something. The trailer boasts plenty of fan-favorite moments, and we certainly have our own list of scenes we took a shine to.

To that end, keep reading after the jump for the five things we loved most about this first look at "Vampire Academy"!

Sam TrammellThe big-screen adaptation of "The Fault in Our Stars" is looking a bit shifty these days, isn't it? Ha! Hahaha! Bwahahahaaaa! ...Yeah, okay, but we had to. Because the dish from The Wrap is that Sam Trammell, the figurative (and occasionally literal!) silver fox of Bon Temps, is joining the cast of the much-anticipated teen tearjerker in the role of Hazel's dad.

For the uninitiated, "The Fault in Our Stars" is the story of Hazel Lancaster and Augustus Waters, two teenagers who fall in love while both are battling cancer. Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort are starring, and Sam will be joining Laura Dern as the other half of Hazel's parental unit—a nice chance for him to show off his range as an actor in a role that's a little more family-manly (and a world that's a little less gory, sexy and supernatural) than the one he inhabits on "True Blood,"

PlushA tormented rockstar, a boundary-pushing relationship, and a slick and sexy guitarist who isn't quite what he seems: Sounds exciting, doesn't it? So it's no surprise that we're seriously stoked for the September release of "Plush," a movie which contains all these things and then some, and for which we've got an EXCLUSIVE poster debut for your viewing pleasure! Feast your eyes on Emily Browning as rock musician Hayley, the leading lady of this upcoming thriller from "Twilight" director Catherine Hardwicke.

Ooooh, pretty. Hayley's sparkly sunglasses can be seen reflecting the handsome faces of Xavier Samuel and Cam Gigandet—and you just know they're also hiding a pair of haunted eyes, amirite?

It's 15 seconds and it is fantastic, you guys!

In anticipation of the first "Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters" trailer (debuting this evening on Entertainment Tonight), Weinstein Company has released a quick tease of the promo clip—capturing all the action and intrigue of Richelle Mead's best-selling novel.

To keep it tidy, there's no narrative thread to speak of—just fast cuts of scenes from the vampire drama, debuting February 14, 2014. Here's what we saw:

Liam Hemsworth has been dealing with plenty of "Paranoia" lately. And that's not just a sad pun referencing his upcoming thriller. (But it is that, too.) In all fairness, you'd be watching your back too if you had Panem Peacekeepers at the ready to whip it raw. Which is exactly what happens to Liam's character, Gale, in "The Hunger Games" sequel "Catching Fire"—an experience the actor recalled recently to MTV News.

"Getting whipped—it was interesting," Liam said of finding the proper mindset for the harrowing scene. "It was weird 'cause we had a couple hundred extras on set, and I spent awhile in makeup getting my back done with all this interesting prosthetics. I think we shot it for about three or four days. I was tied to a pole and screaming and getting whipped, and after awhile, it starts to wear on you a bit—just the yelling and exhaustion of it all. It's an odd thing to turn up to work and get whipped for a few days. For most people."

Catching FireStep aside, Big Ben. Only one ticking clock can capture the spotlight come November 11, and that's the Quarter Quell arena!

With just 100 days until the theatrical debut of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," Lionsgate announced today that the film's world premiere will be held in London.

The sequel to the 2012 blockbuster finds District 12 tributes Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) returned from the titular death match, embarking on a victory tour of their downtrodden country.

Vampire AcademyWith the "Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters" teaser trailer debut just hours away, the Weinstein Company is whetting our appetite for all things St. Vlad's with a handful of first look images that debuted this morning at USA Today.

All three feature "Beautiful Creatures" actress Zoey Deutch as Rose Hathaway, the badass bodyguard-in-training at the heart of Richelle Mead's best-selling book series. The story follows Rose as she returns to school after having run away with her best friend, Moroi princess Lissa (Lucy). But the dangers that sent them fleeing in the first place seem to have returned, and Rose must protect Lissa from a mysterious foe who wants her gone. Of course, in between all that mortal peril, there may just be a few cute boys waiting in the wings to complicate things. (A certain Russian mentor comes to mind...)

When we talked to Zoey earlier this year before shooting began on "Vampire Academy" in London, she explained a bit about the tone screenwriter Daniel Waters and director Mark Waters were aiming for.
