Given its evocative name, it's very appropriate that the upcoming rom-com "Are We Officially Dating?" keeps rounding out its cast with dudes who we'd loooove to date—officially or not, really. We aren't picky.
The movie, which already had snagged Zac Efron in its headline role, has tapped the exquisitely handsome Michael B. Jordan to play another one of the film's three avowed bachelors, who swear they'll stay single forever and ever.. and then, of course, promptly fall in love with three lovely girls whom their stupid bro pact prevents them from actually dating, and hijinks ensue.
"Teen Wolf" actor Dylan O'Brien and former "Secret Circle" actress Britt Robertson star as two teens falling in love in the upcoming romantic comedy "The First Time." And in anticipation of the film's release, Hollywood Crush has snagged an EXCLUSIVE clip that will make you swoon. Then wince.
In the first look above, Britt's Aubrey and Dylan's Dave are in the middle of an intimate conversation (we saw that lean in, kids!), when Audrey's boyfriend Ronny (played by James Frecheville) busts in, and well, things get ugly from there. I mean, someone actually throws out the line: "You pretentious little Belle and Sebastian..."
There's nothing more fun than a Tough Girl Goes Glam movie (we don't care what you say, "Miss Congeniality" is a work of ART and GENIUS), and today brought some good news for fans of the oeuvre: Miley Cyrus, fresh on the heels of a very busy summer, will be starring in a college-aged take on this favorite trope! The trailer is out; the movie is "So Undercover," featuring Miley as a teenage private eye who's assigned by the FBI to protect a college student whose family has ties to the mob.
As you might guess by its title modifier, "So Undercover" revolves around sorority life—and true to its genre, it'll require Miley's streetwise character to undergo a highly entertaining and major transformation from tomboy teen to glam girl. (Also required: at least one scene in which the newly made-over Miley goes buns-over-teakettle 'cause she can't walk in high heels. This has to happen, or the very fabric of the universe will rip apart.)
Few things make us quite so giddy as when our favorite Hollywood starlets team up like some crime-fighting superheroine duo with really great hair. So we were all kinds of enthused when we read the news this morning (via The Hollywood Reporter) that Anne Hathaway has signed on to star in a romantic comedy co-written by Mindy Kaling!
The film is titled "The Low Self-Esteem of Lizzie Gillespie," and was described thusly by the trade: "The story centers on a woman whose lack of self-worth has limited her choice in men to losers. When she is about to hit the bottom of the barrel, life takes an unexpected turn when she is pursued by the hottest guy ever."
The script, which Mindy wrote with Brent Forrester, appeared on the Black List (Hollywood's roll call of the best unproduced scripts) in 2009, which speaks to its quality, but there are plenty of other clues that lead us to believe this could be The Next Great Rom-Com.
Full confession: At first, we totally thought this was actually Zac Efron's roundabout way of telling us he wanted to take our relationship to the next level (in which case the answer is YES PLEASE)...but alas, we were wrong. "Are We Officially Dating?" isn't an actual question; it's just the title of his next film, in which he'll star as one of three gentleman protagonists at the center of a big fat love knot. The Hollywood Reporter has the full scoop on the movie, which recently scored a leading man in Zac but has yet to round out the rest of its cast.
The film, a romantic comedy, focuses on three single guys in New York City who vow to each other that they'll stay un-coupled and keep playing the field—at which point, of course, they each promptly meet a lovely lady with whom they'd like to pursue a relationship, but oops, WHAT OF THE BRO PACT?!
Last night, the unhappy news of Nora Ephron's death at 71 swept across the internet like a juggernaut of sadness—sadness so deep and all-encompassing that we immediately put in our DVD of "Sleepless in Seattle," watched it all the way to the end, and cried the whole way through.
...Not because of the sad loss of a talented writer/director, but because that's what always happens when we watch one of her movies, because she was just that good at making you feel things.
And today, in honor of the inimitable Ms. Ephron, we've put together this list of the most wonderful moments from her movies that made us feel all the feelings. Sad, frustrating, funny and true, these are five scenes out of many that made her work painfully, perfectly human.
When presented with the opportunity to sit down with the star-studded cast of "What To Expect When You're Expecting" recently, I had to go in with my A-game. Literally. I went in with a game, wherein I brought up several mundane-yet-universally-experienced scenarios and had the actors weigh-in as to whether they'd have "high" or "low" expectations in the given situation. So highbrow, I know.
Luckily for all of us, Anna Kendrick, Chace Crawford, Cameron Diaz, Matthew Morrison, Rodrigo Santoro, Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Banks and Ben Falcone totally played ball, resulting in the hilarious video above. Be sure to listen for Matthew's baby delivery story, Anna's idea for an appearance on "Gossip Girl," and an amazing Andy Warhol-esque version of "Twilight."

Have you ever daydreamed—as we often have—that one of the spandex-suited heroes of "The Avengers" would swoop through your window and whisk you away to romantic bliss?
Come on, we can't be the only ones who have fantasized that Captain America would fight for our honor, that Iron Man's energy would pulse just for us, or that Thor would swing that mighty hammer of his in our direction, right?
Whether or not you dig big-screen superheroes, it's hard to ignore that the actors who suited up to play the Marvel legends in this comic-book adaptation from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" creator Joss Whedon are easy on the eyes. So easy, in fact, that it's no surprise that all of them have not-so-secret romantic film origins.
If you're going to catch “The Avengers” in theaters, you might want to rev yourself up beforehand with a little movie marathon that highlights some of the more romantic roles the film's stars have played.
Guys, did you know that the plot of "The Five-Year Engagement" is not just a work of fiction invented for the purpose of further showcasing the charms of Jason Segel and Emily Blunt? People actually stay engaged for five years—sometimes more! Crazy!
MTV News sought out the advice and opinions of relationship expert and San Diego dating coach DeAnna Lorraine on the subject, specifically why long-term engagements are a bad idea and why women should be careful to maintain a separate life from their fiance.
We'd all agree bloopers are one of the best parts of owning a film on DVD, right? The behind-the-scenes footage provides laughs that are usually only available to those on set. But when you think about it, the reel is kind of misleading. Bloopers make it seem like laughing during a take is a welcomed interruption, but "Five-Year Engagement" leading man, Jason Segel, says otherwise.
"I'm terrified of breaking," Jason revealed. "Judd Apatow screamed at me once when I was very young on 'Freaks and Geeks.' I was laughing, and I was young, and looking back, he was just trying to scare me, but he said, 'Every time you break, it costs me thousands of dollars!' And since then, I'm terrified of breaking."
