The soon-to-be-released "Tiger Eyes" has long been our most anticipated book-to-movie adaptation that doesn't involve teenagers murdering each other in a televised tournament for public enjoyment, but there's been an infuriating dearth of promotional buzz and tease-y stuff leading up to the film's June release—leading Judy Blume fans everywhere to lie awake at night consumed by worry that something had gone horribly wrong, preventing the film from getting all the attention it deserved. But no more! Because there's a trailer! Finally! And best of all, it looks to be a completely wonderful and faithful adaptation of the beloved source material.
The film stars Willa Holland as Davey, a teenage girl whose family moves across the country to New Mexico after her father is killed. It's the beginning of a tremendous journey of self-discovery as Davey tries to cope with her grief, rebuild her life and negotiate the guilt she feels over her father's death—all while having her eyes opened to the struggles of other people against their own personal demons.

Any Shadowhunter worth his black would never be caught dead using a stunt double while destroying dastardly demons, and so it was that the actors portraying badass Nephilim in the big-screen adaptation of Cassandra Clare's "Mortal Instruments" underwent weeks of grueling training to pull off all those jumps, kicks and flips.
When we caught up with star Kevin Zegers recently at WonderCon, he explained the process of getting into top physical condition to portray Alec Lightwood.
"I think I showed up about four weeks before we started, and it went through filming, so then on lunch break we would go and rehearse the fight sequences," he said of the rigorous preparation. "[Director] Harald [Zwart] wanted us to do our own stuff, which I think when you watch the movie you can tell. It's sort of great, and you can see that it's us, and it's violence and just as, like, a guy, I saw the new trailer and it looks awesome. It looks like a big action movie, also obviously, the love story and everything are going on and the fantasy stuff. The action stuff looks awesome."
Shailene Woodley is proving just how Dauntless she can be in a first look at "Divergent," courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.
Based on the best-selling dystopian drama by Veronica Roth, "Divergent" takes place in a near-future Chicago, where society has been divided into five factions, each upholding a different virtue. Citizens are tested as teens to determine where they fit, but when Beatrice "Tris" Prior (Shailene) receives a "divergent" result (meaning she doesn't fit squarely into any faction), she leaves the safety of her Abnegation home and joins up with the brave Dauntless. (Explaining the knives in the image, which are part of the initiation process for the fearless faction.)
The internet being what it is, we give it...oh, another five seconds, tops, before someone has created an amazing gifset of Emma Watson's deadpan delivery of "The Bling Ring" trailer's most iconic line: "I want to rob."
Seriously, it's fabulous. But in the meantime, you can still enjoy Emma's blithe bad-girl moment just as the producers intended: by watching the trailer itself on a continuous loop all morning long! (That is what we're supposed to be doing, right?) The new look at Sofia Coppola's film about a group of wily teenage thieves is out now (via Yahoo!), trading in the flashy montage of the first teaser trailer for some slightly more detailed delving into the characters' motivations and the movie's main plot.
The big-screen adaptation of E.L. James' naughty novel "Fifty Shades of Grey" has whipped up plenty of bogus speculation since it was optioned last year: Angelina Jolie directing! Emma Watson as Ana! Jonah Hill as...Christian!? But the latest rumor swirling around the blogosphere has got to be the best yet.
According to The Wrap, director Gus Van Sant ("Good Will Hunting") shot a sample sex scene, starring Alex Pettyfer as Christian Grey, in a bid to helm the highly anticipated S&M tale. No word on who filled the shoes of Christian's naive paramour Anastasia Steele, though sources did tell the site the scene in question was Ana losing her virginity to Christian.
The report caused quite a stir (and a lot of head scratching) in the MTV Newsroom. So much so, in fact, that we compiled a list of our top 10 questions regarding the rumor.
"The Vampire Diaries" star Daniel Gillies is finally getting distribution for his independent films "Broken Kingdom" and "Kingdom Come." The actor and director has been very forthcoming about his struggle trying to create his first feature film, so learning that both projects will air on Showtime in May is a nice conclusion to this story.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, Showtime has acquired both "Broken Kingdom" and "Kingdom Come," and will air them back-to-back on May 15 starting at 7 p.m. "Broken Kingdom" is a drama set in the slums of Bogota and the Hollywood Hills, while "Kingdom Come" is a documentary about Daniels' experience creating his directorial debut.
Ashley Tisdale is ready for the world to end. And, if it has to happen, at least she’s in interesting company. The singer/actress will join Nicolas Cage in the dystopian drama “Left Behind.” And while fans are used to her making them chuckle, this project will show her stretching another kind of acting muscle.
"I’m super-excited to be doing a movie called 'Left Behind' with Nicolas Cage. I play his daughter, and it’s a drama, so it’s completely different from this,” she said, comparing it to her current role in the comedy “Scary Movie 5.”
When it comes to casting a major Hollywood production, standard operating procedure is to secure a lead first, then build a supporting cast around him or her. So it seemed curious that for the big-screen adaptation of James Dashner's "The Maze Runner," everyone but the protagonist was being announced. And now, that's been remedied. Meet your Thomas: "Teen Wolf" actor Dylan O'Brien.
"The Maze Runner"—another dark dystopian—follows Thomas as he awakens in an elevator with no memories of his previous life. The lift dumps him in "the Glade," where a group of teenage boys live, penned in by walls and a surrounding maze. Already set to run the cinematic labyrinth: Will Poulter, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Aml Ameen and Kaya Scodelario.
That Kristen Stewart is a wily one: Every time we turn around, she's either climbing aboard or jumping ship on one movie or another! Just today, we've got a report that she's said goodbye to her role in the heist flick "Focus"—the second film she's bowed out of in a year. (She also gave up her part in the action movie "Cali," which vanished from the Hollywood radar after her departure.)
For fans of the actress, it's getting the teensiest bit difficult to keep tabs of where and when we'll next see her on the big screen...which is why we, who are experts at tracking Kristen in her natural habitat, have put together this little list of her upcoming projects.
