You know how sometimes two people in a romantic comedy will experience the most ridiculous, perfect, crazy convoluted meet-cute scenario—and you find yourself yelling and hurling heavy objects at the screen, because come on, nobody is that adorably bumbling-yet-witty in real life? Well, at long last, there's a movie out there that makes plausible every single one of those unlikely scenarios through the wonders of science fiction. Seriously, it explains everything! As does this fantabulous trailer for the upcoming movie "About Time," starring Domhnall Gleason and Rachel McAdams.
The premise is as follows: Domhnall (the cutie-pie ginger previously seen in "Never Let Me Go" and as an elder Weasley in the "Harry Potter" films) plays Tim, a guy with one whopper of a genetic legacy, which is that every dude in his family is gifted with time-traveling capabilities. As explained by his father, played by Bill Nighy, there are limits to said time-traveling; Bill-and-Ted-esque ability to drop in on the entirety of human history, not included. And Tim's use for this newfound skill? Going back to every botched romantic opportunity in his life, and basically doing them over in the style of Ryan Gosling. Which, you must admit, is smart...and would also explain a lot about Ryan Gosling, actually, now that we think about it. (Right?! OMG YOU GUYS. RYAN GOSLING IS FROM THE FUTURE.)
The hottest new hometown on television, "Ravenswood," has gotten exponentially hotter as of this week—not to mention that it also now has much, much more fabulous hair.
Deadline reports that Britne Oldford, along with her glorious gravity-defying curls, has joined the cast of the "Pretty Little Liars" spin-off as a series regular.
Britne was most recently seen on "American Horror Story" as the surprise victim of an alien abduction (or was she?!), and before that, on MTV's "Skins." On "Ravenswood," she'll play Remy—a clique-defying free agent who'll spend her screen time digging for the truth about the mysterious, ancient curse that overshadows the five main characters.
Here's one to add to the Random Trivia File: "Girls" creator Lena Dunham and "Twilight" star Robert Pattinson share a birthday. And not just the same day, mind you, but the same year as well! They both turn 27 today.
We already celebrated Rob's birthday earlier, but we'd be remiss letting the day pass without sending well wishes to one of our favorite "Girls." (We put a new romper in the mail for you, Lena...)
FROM MTV NEWS: Listen up, Lovatics! Demi Lovato is stopping by MTV tomorrow to talk all about her new album, Demi, in addition to answering fan questions! (Try not to have a "Heart Attack," okay?)
It all goes down at 3 p.m. ET on Tuesday, and will not only stream live on MTV.com, but will air on MTV Hits, as well.
Do you have questions for Demi? Be sure to tweet them to @MTVBuzzworthy using the hasthtag #AskDemi.

Bella Thorne isn't the only Disney starlet to "Shake It Up" with a new book. While the 15-year-old takes us on a magical ride, co-star and "Dancing With the Stars" contestant Zendaya will get real with an advice tome to be published by Disney-Hyperion Books.
"Between U and Me: How to Rock Your Tween Years with Style and Confidence" sounds a bit like the 16-year-old's Pinterest on steroids, with photos, anecdotes recipes, playlists and doodles populating the pages (plus advice from her team of experts, including mom and dad—awwwwww!).
Remember last week when we relayed the rumor that "Anna Karenina" director Joe Wright was circling the big-screen adaptation of E.L. James' best-seller "Fifty Shades of Grey"? Well, that's all the chatter ended up being: a rumor.
Deadline reports that Joe does not have time in his schedule for a raunchy romp with billionaire Christian Grey and his naive paramour Anastasia Steele. And so, the list of Hollywood heavyweights who won't be involved with the project continues to grow.
We already knew Stephen Amell was out as Christian. And Emma Watson was out as Ana, as was Keira Knightley. And let's not even get started about the Angelina Jolie speculation.
Break out the beer and puppies: Today is Robert Pattinson's 27th birthday. Happy birthday, you hottie, you!
Now, just because the sun has set on Rob's "Twilight"-related duties, that doesn't mean his 27th year isn't going to be jam-packed. In fact, as he breaks away from the film franchise that made him a star, it seems directors can't get their hands on him fast enough. (Or maybe that's just us? We kid! Maybe...) With that in mind, let's take a look at Rob's upcoming year in the cinema.
First up is "The Rover," which Rob filmed earlier this year in the Australian Outback. The Brit stars as Reynolds, a man who's desperately searching for his stolen car and the valuable object left inside, in this near-future thriller. A first-look image from the film (featuring Guy Pearce) hit the web back in March, with the film tentatively slated for a 2013 release.
And, well, that's where the certainty ends, because the actor has no shortage of projects in various stages of pre-production.
Remember when Darren Criss cracked wise with MTV News about the "Glee" kids all being imminently destined for summer employment of the "wacky cruise ship" variety? WELL. Call us crazy, but we wonder if Darren might've been dropping the sneakiest of oblique hints about (or just psychically tapping into the secrets of) the upcoming season and its peculiar quirk: a big break right in the middle that'll leave us all "Glee"-less for weeks on end while the show does...well, whatever shows do when they take big winter breaks. Skiing in the Swiss Alps, perhaps?
Darren's talk of cruise ship-related drama dreams for the "Glee" cast came just days before the news of the mid-season hiatus broke at Deadline, where the whole entire Fox fall season roundup is available for your perusal and/or use in advance strategizing about how best to program your DVR so you won't miss out on a single must-see show. (Except just kidding, there are way too many exciting new things happening on too many channels for you to actually do that, and it's time to stop dallying and waffling around like a wuss and decide where your loyalties lie, sir. YOU HAVE HEDGED LONG ENOUGH.)
Pssssst! Yo, froshies: If you want the top bunk at bloodsucking school, you'd better speak up now. The dorms at St. Vladimir's, the "Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters" elite educational institution for the befanged, are rapidly filling up, with a whopping four new casting announcements on the wire.
Deadline reports that Sami Gayle, Cameron Monaghan, Ashley Charles and Claire Foy have all joined the film, rounding out the cast in several key roles.
Like many of you, we here at MTV have a soft spot for "The Mortal Instruments" magic-doer Magnus Bane. (Perhaps it's because our names both start with the letter "M"?) And there are few things we love more than debuting EXCLUSIVE content featuring the glittered one, like first-look images and on-set interviews. So here we go again dishing up a hunky helping of the High Warlock of Brooklyn. Are you ready for it? (OF COURSE YOU ARE.)
Take a long, lusty look at this new character poster featuring Magnus, which boasts the tagline: "An instrument of chaos."
The August 23 release marks actor Godfrey Gao's American film debut, and he admitted to a few nerves during production when we visited him last year on the set.
