If you are looking for vampires who embrace humans and even fall in love with them, Breaking Dawn opens on November 18.

But if you're in the mood for an old fashioned tale about a blood sucker with pure disdain for our kind, purchase a ticket for Fright Night. It hits theaters tomorrow and it sets Colin Ferrell loose as Jerry (yes, Jerry), a vampire who causes nothing but problems for Anton Yelchin's Charley Brewster.

A retelling of a classic, the movie takes full advantage of its 3D status, according to our pals at Movie Fanatic, resulting in an intense pace and a sinister, enjoyable scariness that is missing from many vampire tales these days.

Great news: Star Wars is finally coming to Blu-Ray next month.

Bad news: Episode I and effing Jar Jar Binks will be included in the release, and odds are George Lucas will not have removed some of the additional scenes he added to the early films to their detriment. Han shot first, George. Han shot first.

Anyway, the Blu-Ray set does look awesome. Here's the trailer:

Over 40 hours of bonus features (such as deleted scenes) will be included, according to Movie Fanatic, along with the option to purchase only Episodes IV-VI.

You know, if you really can't stand Binks. Or an entire film about Darth Vader being a cute kid once. Or Hayden Christensen delivering seriously awful dialogue.

We're not bitter or anything.

Let's start with this equation: Jesse Eisenberg + Aziz Ansari = Comedic gold.

Beyond that simple formula, however, 30 Minutes or Less falls a bit short.

As detailed by our pals at Movie Fanatic, the two leads play off each other in an ideal, hilarious fashion. Ansari understands his role as a sidekick, while Eisenberg is anything but the serious, bitter character he played in The Social Network.

The film runs into a problem with Danny McBride, however, a one-dimensional villain without a trace of humanity. How this compare to Michael Pena's antagonist? And where does the lovely city of Grand Rapids come into play?

Christmas is about to come prematurely.

On November 4, Kal Penn and John Cho reprise the roles that made them famous in A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas. And, of course, they're bringing Neil Patrick Harris back with them.

Among the adventures previewed below: the boys hot box a toddler, Harris mocks Jesus Christ and Santa Claus gets shot in the face. Yes, it's the first stoner-based holiday movie, and it's in 3D. Check out the official, just-released trailer now.

It's not easy to bring a global best-seller to the big screen, especially when it deals with the sensitive topic of race.

But, as socialite Hilly Holbrook in the The Help, that's the mission in front of Bryce Dallas Howard. It's not one she expected to undertake, considering how different Hilly is from the actress' past parts in The Twilight Saga and The Village.

"I don't think I would have cast myself," Howard laughed in an interview with Movie Fanatic. "So, once I was cast, I had to have a certain amount of faith in the producers and director for making the right decision or I would have been a little fearful that I couldn’t do it."

For a lot more from Howard, including how the southern heat feels like its very own character, visit Movie Fanatic now!

Death has never been closer.

So teases the official movie poster for Final Destination 5, which comes out on August 12. But the tagline also applies to the film's cast and our friends at Movie Fanatic: they enjoyed a round table discussion together earlier today.

"This movie raises questions," said star Miles Fisher. "Humans want an answer for everything, including fate and religion. If there is an answer for everything, there is such a thing as asking too much. Trying to create your own answers can cause as much harm as good. Just continue to learn and be open-minded."

We love Prince William and Kate Middleton, but suffice it to say William & Catherine: A Royal Romance won't be winning any major awards come Oscar time.

If this teaser is any indication, the Hallmark Channel film looks even cheesier than the company's greeting cards ... which we suppose is to be expected.

Still, the acting displayed here by Alice St. Clair (Kate Middleton), Dan Amboyer (Prince William) and Victor Garber (Prince Charles)? Not un-amazing.

Hello, Hallmark? The Unintentional Comedy Hall of Fame is on Line 1 ...

Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which opens this weekend, takes us back to the dawn of a saga that first enthralled audiences with 1968's Planet of the Apes.

Five more films were made through 1973, and another in 2001. Now, director Rupert Wyatt is rebooting the franchise at the beginning of the apes' takeover.

Gone are actors in ape suits, replaced by special effects and a riveting performance by Andy Serkis, who portrayed Gollum in the Lord of the Rings films.

Stars James Franco, Freida Pinto and Tom Felton agreed that without Serkis’ turn as Caesar the chimpanzee, the film would feel empty. Here's the trailer:

The stars spoke with Movie Fanatic to discuss it this week. Follow the link to read their interview, then come back tomorrow for Movie Fanatic's official review!

A well-muscled man is forced to compete in fights to the death with other individuals, but granted the chance to win his freedom if he comes out on top of enough battles in a row.

Sound familiar? Like a certain Oscar-winning movie from 2000 that starred Russell Crowe?

Yes, Arena has many Gladiator qualities, but so what? That film ruled! And this one features a fun cast of Kellan Lutz (The Twilight Saga), Nina Dobrev (The Vampire Diaries) and Samuel L. Jackson (every other movie ever made). Check out the official trailer for this October 11 release now:

A movie about two characters who switch bodies isn't exactly ground-breaking. It's been done many times before.

But two of the funniest men in Hollywood still jumped at the chance to star on The Change-Up and they explained why in a roundtable discussion this week: because the R rating opened up a world of dirty, fun possibilities.

"It was fun to see this kind of premise - which is usually a PG premise - executed in such a hard way, in such an edge," Ryan Reynolds said. "It was no-holds barred. It was the first script I've read in a long time where I cried laughing."

The Change-Up comes out on Friday. You can check out the official trailer above and read the full roundtable transcript at Movie Fanatic!
