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."

Fans can look forward to cast interviews, goofy behind-the-scenes moments on set, an exploration of “Twilight FAN-omenon” and even more from your Forks men in “Twilight Forever: Edward’s Saga” and “Twilight Forever: Jacob’s Saga.”
Step 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. As they visit the districts, a spirit of uprising seems to greet them—but Katniss isn't sure if she's ready to be a symbol of the growing revolution.
With 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.
Sexy Shadowhunters (and marvelous mundanes, too) were out, about and dressed to the nines at last night's big L.A. premiere of "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones"—and we've got the pics to prove it. Just fix your peepers on these photos of the cast on the arrivals carpet, and try not to faint over how good they all look.
These premieres are usually a style showcase for the ladies in attendance, but this time around, it was the men of "The Mortal Instruments" who turned up looking eye-catchingly fashionable. Case in point: Jamie Campbell Bower, who sported a cobalt three-piece suit and looked beeeeauuuutiful in blue. Also earning kudos for stylish menswear: Kevin Zegers, who upped the ante on a slim black suit with some white piping on his jacket lapels; Godfrey Gao, who donned a sleek black tux that would've no doubt earned the approval of Magnus Bane himself; and Robert Sheehan, who was unignorable in what looked like the world's most formal paisley pajamas.
If you haven't bought your ticket for "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters" yet, it's no real spoiler to tell you that our titular demigod deals with feelings of self-doubt in this follow-up to "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief." After all, Percy must prove he's no one-trick pony, while being repeatedly one-upped by fellow demigod Clarisse (played by "The Hunger Games" actress Leven Rambin). Can Percy live up to the legendary destiny that awaits him?
Surprisingly, in real life, star Logan Lerman told us that he doesn't believe in destiny. Or at least a concept of destiny that doesn't involve a lot of work.
"I believe in making your own destiny through luck, which is preparation and opportunity," Logan explained. "So, you know, you've gotta work hard. You've gotta do your job."
Raise the flags and sound the alarm! We have a confirmed sighting of Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth together on a red carpet, repeat, sighting confirmed. After more than a year of the on-again, off-again couple showing up solo to their various events, it was starting to look more likely that we'd stumble across evidence of Bigfoot than see these two canoodling at a premiere. But here they are!
The couple made their appearance at last night's premiere of "Paranoia," Liam's latest film. He wore a dapper slate-grey suit, while she opted for a bold leather patchwork dress and chic white heels. And while there's no shortage of speculation this morning on what their outing may or may not mean about the state of their relationship, the two of them look more or less like they've always looked on red carpets together—as in, happy enough to be there, but also like they wouldn't mind just bailing on the entire thing and going home to watch TV in their socks. So basically, we'll assume that all is still calm and cool in Lovetown until they tell us otherwise.
You're going to have to wait for March 21, 2014, to see "Divergent" on the big screen, but if you caught the trailer at San Diego Comic-Con, you've already seen more than Tony Goldwyn—who was actually in the movie—has.
"Divergent" follows teenager Tris Prior in dystopian Chicago as she discovers that she's a dangerous mix of several of her society's personality-based factions and subsequently sparks a revolution.
When Hollywood Crush caught up with Tony earlier this week, he revealed that Tris' big leap into the Dauntless headquarters is one of the scenes he's most excited about seeing in finished form. That, of course, was one of the trailer's highlights (yeah, just gonna rub it in that we've seen it already). But Tony, who plays Andrew Prior, the father of our heroine, is also looking forward to seeing a couple of scenes he was actually in.

The next installment in the chronicles of a certain dreamy demigod and his mythological pals is here at long last. The sequel to 2010's "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief" hits theaters this week.
This time, Percy Jackson, the half-human son of the sea god Poseidon played by Logan Lerman, finds himself on the hunt for the magical Golden Fleece in an effort to save his home, Camp Half-Blood, from certain destruction.
While the movie may be the stuff of legend, it's no myth that we have a list of things for you to do before seeing this film. So before you dive into "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters," try these five things:
