Miley Cyrus created quite the stir this week when she got a new tattoo, seemingly in defense of gay marriage, and then evoked God when defending her belief in equality.

But, give the singer/actress credit, she isn't backing down from this fight. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cyrus is attached to an untitled comedy written by Sam Brown and Jack Angelo. Not much is known about it, but the reliable publication describes the film's plot as involving "a broken promise to God."

Miley has a pair of other grown-up films in the way: So Undercover and LOL.

Boyfriend Liam Hemsworth, meanwhile, is also set to make it big: he will star in next March's big screen version of The Hunger Games as Gale.

It was a strong weekend for unusual creatures this weekend: The Smurfs tied with Cowboys & Aliens for first at the box office. Both films earned $36.2 million.

Despite the deadlock, Cowboys & Aliens comes out as a loser. Considering the star power involved and the budget ($163 million), expectations were high for the Jon Favreu-directed thriller. Instead, it barely made half of what the top superhero-based flicks of the summer took home in their first weekend.

A look at the top five:

  1. The Smurfs: $36.2 million
  2. Cowboys & Aliens: $36.2 million
  3. Captain America: The First Avenger: $24.9 million
  4. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2: $21.9 million
  5. Crazy, Stupid Love: $19.3 million

Even Angelina Jolie can't do it all.

Between acting, directing, raising six kids and saving the world, she's got a lot on her plate. As she gets older, the 36-year-old knows something has to give.

What she's likely to give up first is an easy call.

The Oscar winner, whose directorial debut is in post-production, and who will be starring in a remake of the Elizabeth Taylor film Cleopatra, said:

"As Brad and I get older we're going to do fewer films. I've been working a long time, he's been working a long time. We've had a nice run and don't want to be doing this indefinitely, our whole lives. There are a lot of other things to do."

"You're drawn to certain roles because they question something about life, about love, about freedom. You ask these questions as you grow up: am I strong enough, am I sane enough? Do I understand love, do I understand myself?"

The rumor of Selena Gomez portraying Charlotte York in a Sex and the City prequel evoked many responses earlier this month. So let's see what readers think of this intriguing follow-up story:

Sources say that Selena is still in the running for that character, while leading contenders have also emerged for the other key roles:

  • Elizabeth Olsen as Carrie Bradshaw.
  • Emma Roberts as Miranda Hobbs.
  • Blake Lively as Samantha Jones. 
  • Green Lantern Star
  • Photo of Selena
  • Elizabeth Olsen Picture

No deals are in place with any of these actresses, or even for the movie itself.

But Candace Bushnell has penned two novels about Carrie's early life - The Carrie Diaries and Summer And The City - and it seems unlikely a studio would pass on the possibility to create a new franchise based off a best-selling author.

What do you think of these casting choices?

The Office's Jenna Fischer is no stranger to being in front of the camera, but headlining a major motion picture, as she does in A Little Help - in one of her first dramatic roles, no less - was an adjustment for the actress.

The role of a train-wrecked wife and mother was markedly different from Pam Beesly, and did come naturally, Jenna tells our partner site, Movie Fanatic.

"This character was the biggest departure from my actual personality than anyone I’ve ever played before, so that was a challenge," Fischer explains.

Harry Potter's final adventure dropped by a staggering 72 percent in its second weekend, but it would have been impossible to have come close to its record-breaking first few days of release. Let's take a look at the top five, shall we?

  1. Captain America: The First Avenger - $65.8 million
  2. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - $48.1 million

THG at CCKristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are moving on. Not from each other. But from The Twilight Saga.

Pattinson will star in Bel Ami later this year, the first trailer for which was released this week.

Stewart, meanwhile, will update a classic fairy tale in Show White and the Huntsman, a possible trilogy that brought the cast together for a panel at Comic-Con this weekend.

How would the actress describe her version of this well-known character?

"She's got this amazing ability to channel fear, things that people are typically very afraid of, into this really focused, really charged, driving energy," Stewart said. "She's also like the people's leader and... truly doesn't let her heart cloud her mind. [She] doesn't let her mind get in the way of doing things she feels strongly about. Also, I get to have a sword and stuff."

Star Wars: The Complete Saga will soon be coming to Blu-Ray. Contained in the six-film set will be deleted scenes that should get the fan base salivating.

While George Lucas' empire has generated untold sums of cash, all the spinoff books, video games and even the prequel trilogy just can't measure up.

Deleted scenes from the original movies (Episodes IV, V and VI) will be included in the much-anticipated set. Here's a brief montage of some of them ...

THG at CCThree Comic-Con "character cards" from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 have been unveiled in advance of the cast's appearance at the San Diego event, which kicks off today.

Bella (Kristen Stewart), Jacob (Taylor Lautner) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) are each featured on two-sided cards with mini-bios.

The biographical information for Bella contains the heroine's full, married name (Isabella Marie Swan Cullen)  for the first time, and officially unveils her long-sought status her part of the “Cullen Coven.”

Her date of transformation? Still TBD.

The card also contains a quote: “Yeah, I’m ready.” Enough. Said.

For Bella's special abilities, it says, "Her mind is impenetrable; no one can read her thoughts unless she allows it." Psychic attacks? Useless. Don't even front.

On Edward's card, little is new but his own sappy quote: “I’ve been waiting a century to marry you, Miss Swan.” That's a long ass time. As for Jacob Black?

His group listing actually contains two names: the Quileute Wolf Pack (a.k.a. Sam’s group) and then The Black Pack, his own new pack, headed by himself.

Appropriately, Jacob's defiant quote is: “I am the grandson of a chief. I wasn’t born to follow you or anyone else.” Not the lone wolf you wanna mess with.

Check out the front and back of each card after the jump!
