Amanda Seyfried plays the titular porn icon in Lovelace, the upcoming biopic about the '70s adult film industry's most famous Deep Throat practitioner.

Amanda took over for Lindsay Lohan after producers cut her loose amid her never-ending legal woes. While Lindsay seemed like a natural fit, this may have been a real blessing in disguise for the film, which co-stars Peter Sarsgaard.

Check out the first Lovelace poster and see why:

Sarsgaard plays the husband who basically forces Seyfried's Lovelace into the industry (heathen), and James Franco even makes a cameo as Hugh Hefner himself.

The film will reportedly deconstruct the glamorous facade of the early porn biz via its rampant abuse of Lovelace, who went on to adamantly oppose her line of work.

Sounds like a must-see, and not necessarily only for its lead actress!

Take cover, Katniss Everdeen and the cast of Think Like a Man, The Avengers is coming for you.

While this Marvel blockbuster doesn't open until May 4 in the United States, it's international box office haul from this weekend portends a record-shattering few days ahead in America, as The Avengers raked in $178 million worldwide from Wednesday to Sunday.

For some perspective:

  • That's more than Battleship grossed in in its first two weeks abroad, and nearly what The Hunger Games has earned in over a month.
  • That figure alone would make The Avengers the third highest-grossing film of 2012 domestically.
  • It garnered the most from Great Britain, $24.7 million
  • It hasn't even opened yet in such huge markets as China, Japan or Russia.

Or the U.S., of course. Are you excited for The Avengers?

Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga might soon get killed by Will Smith. Wait... what?!?

Men in Black III director Barry Sonnenfeld confirmed in an interview with Collider this week that the music superstars will actually cameo in his upcoming blockbuster, though you're unlikely to be aware of it as you watch Agents J and K in action.

  • Justin Bieber in Cannes
  • Ga Ga

"In this [installment] there are a few people that you'll see up on the surveillance board, including Lady Gaga, Tim Burton, who probably knows more about aliens than I do, and let's see who else... Justin Bieber," Sonnenfeld told the website. "The challenge is getting celebrities that are famous, will give you permission and won't be like 'Who's that guy?' in 10 years."

In the 2002 sequel to this franchise, Michael Jackson actually played the role of an alien for a brief scene.

The film comes out on May 25 and you can watch the Men in Black III trailer now. Can you spot Bieber and/or Gaga in it?!?

Zac Efron recently finished filming The Paperboy, a drama based on a novel by Pete Dexter and featuring Efron as a reporter who returned to his hometown in Florida to investigate a case.

The young actor stars opposite Nicole Kidman in the movie and made it very clear in a recent interview that he enjoyed working with the Oscar winner. Especially during certain scenes.

"Nicole is so gorgeous," Efron said. "It was everything you dreamed of. She was such a lovely person. I pinch myself everyday, especially after doing love scenes with Nicole Kidman. It was the highlight of my life."

Wow. Imagine how Efron would have reacted if he fake banged Kidman before her helpings of plastic surgery!

Zac is coming off an impressive showing at the box office, where The Lucky One came in second this weekend, actually out-earning The Hunger Games.

Not many movie goers will have a chance to laugh out loud at Miley Cyrus and Demi Moore in their upcoming film.

According to The Los Angeles Times, LOL - a drama that stars Cyrus as a coming-of-age teenager and Moore as her mother - will hit theaters on May 4, but only in a few cities.

Lionsgate sources say the studio simply lost enthusiasm (and possibly marketing funds) for the flick after focusing on earlier releases such as Abduction, Conan the Barbarian and The Hunger Games.

LOL, an adaption of a French film directed by Lisa Azuelos, who is also behind the camera for the U.S. version, will open in just seven cities across the country.

But there's hope for Miley's movie career yet: she will star this summer in So Undercover, going undercover inside a sorority and appearing alongside Joshua Bowman and Jeremy Piven.

As it heads into what Lionsgate hopes will be its fifth consecutive weekend atop the box office, The Hunger Games franchise has tapped a new director to helm next year's sequel.

A week after Gary Ross dropped out from the role, Entertainment Weekly confirms that Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend) will helm the wildly anticipated Catching Fire, which hits theaters on November 22, 2013.

  • Katniss Everdeen Poster
  • Catching Fire Novel

Sources say Lawrence was chosen because Catching Fire features even more sweeping, exotic sets and scenes than its predecessor and he's known for making these comes to life with a sense of style.

In less than one month, The Hunger Games has earned over $530 million internationally. So the bar is set high, Catching Fire. May the odds be ever in your favor!

Lindsay Lohan will reportedly still star as Elizabeth Taylor in the upcoming biopic Liz & Dick despite the assault investigation that's hanging over her head.

Yes, the actress has caught a break. For once.

LiLo’s recent behavior, or alleged recent behavior, is NOT looking like a threat to her future projects ... partly because she's done nothing illegal. Yet.

Even after Lindsay’s whole alleged assault of some chick at a hotel bar and her partying at Coachella, the film's producers are standing by her side.

Steve Honig, Lohan’s rep, says: "Producers have assured us everything is on track and there are absolutely no problems. Lindsay is going to star."

Pretty much what we expected ... but you never know.

Hopefully LiLo stays on track and doesn’t do anything that could possibly throw a wrench into the role of a lifetime ... or at least a role ON Lifetime.

What do you think? Can she stay clean?

Movie critics are unhappy with the current Three Stooges film because it's terrible.

But The Catholic League is displeased with the new comedy for an entirely different reason, and it's summed up in the following photo:

The Three Stooges Scene

President Bill Donohue has issued a statement in which he's critical of the idea that this comedy is a faithful homage to the goofy trio.

"Yes, the slapstick is there, along with the groans, pokes, thumps and the like. But the TV show never mocked nuns or showed infants urinating in the face of the Stooges. The film does," Donohue said.

As seen above, Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Kate Upton portrays a nun in the movie, donning a rosary necklace along with a bikini.

Larry David also takes on the role of nun... named Sister Mary-Mengele, likely after the Nazi war criminal Joseph Mengele.

"This movie is not just another remake: it is a cultural marker of sociological significance, and what it says about the way we've changed is not encouraging," says Donohue.

A Fox rep has responded to the criticism by saying "the Stooges have proved over time, laughter is a universal medicine. The nuns that Mr. Donohue alludes to, are in fact, caring, heroic characters in the movie, albeit within the framework of a very broad comedy."

Where do you stand on this issue? Should the Catholic League be angry?
