    Hey, remember I Know What You Did Last Summer, the slasher flick starring Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe, and Freddie Prinze Jr.? Its popularity led to a franchise of sorts, resulting in the creatively named I Still Know What You Did Last Summer and I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer, and apparently Sony Pictures is hoping enough people are interested in what happens to a group of teens after they cover up a car accident that they'll watch the whole story over again in 2016.

    Which is to say, I Know What You Did Last Summer is getting a reboot. I mean, of course it's getting a reboot, because effing everything is getting a reboot these days. But even though it's obvious this is a lame cash grab by Hollywood (it made $125 million when it was released in 1997), there's one reason it should be interesting to see what they come up with.

    The third trailer for Gone Girl premiered on TV during the Emmys last night, and it offers further proof that director David Fincher is aiming to mess with our heads every bit as much as author Gillian Flynn.

    "Hello, Amy. I'm the guy to save you from all this awesomeness," Ben Affleck's Nick Dunne says at the beginning of the new preview. His tone could be either seductive or threatening: His smiling face says the former; the slow ominous score (by Trent Reznor!) says the latter. The promo team at Twentieth Century Fox is doing an excellent job of giving us the chills with their buildup to the film's October 3 release. Here, we rank their sneak peeks (images, trailers, and Entertainment Weekly covers) from least creepy to super Finch-y:

    Have you heard there's a Michael Bay-produced reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise hitting theaters soon? (Because that seemed like something people were clamoring for.) The latest TMNT installment is a live-action flick featuring the pizza-loving, crime-fighting anthropomorphic creatures some of us remember from a painful period in the '80s when one of the turtles was known for his thrilling catchphrase, "Cowabunga, dude!" Now, you'd think this upcoming film wouldn't be capable of provoking more than nostalgia combined with a vague despair over Hollywood's fear of original concepts, but a promo poster for the movie has managed to stir up a massive amount of public outrage.

    You're wondering what could possibly be so offensive about a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles poster, right? Well, it was promoting the movie's September 11 opening in Australia, and the artwork was ... oh dear. Let's just say it was a very very very very VERY poor decision.

    Actor James Garner died at age 86 at his home in Los Angeles of natural causes. The star who played Ryan Gosling's character Noah as an older man in The Notebook had a long and celebrated career as both a comedic and dramatic actor. He was probably best known as the funny hero in the TV series Maverick, which played in the 1950s, as well as the good-looking leading man in movies such as The Rockford Files and Murphy's Romance.

    Oscar-nominated Garner's resume is incredibly impressive, but many of us will remember him as the man Ryan was destined to become in our all-time favorite romantic film.

    I loved Cheryl Strayed's memoir Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail so much, I bought two extra hardback copies so I could give them away. I loved it so much that when I heard Reese Witherspon had optioned the film rights, I instantly thought, Oh no. Not because I am anti-Reese-Witherspoon, exactly (although I have to say, I got a real bitchy too-cool-for-school vibe from her in those elevator videos that were going around), but film adaptations of amazing books -- especially amazing books with so much internal dialogue -- don't always pan out.

    Well, the first trailer for Wild has just been released, and you guys ... it looks GREAT. I realize I'm making the following prediction based on two minutes of footage, but not only am I officially retracting my cynicism about this film in general, I think Witherspoon has a very strong chance of nailing an Oscar for this role.

    Wow, I'm impressed. Miley Cyrus, who has been in the habit of over-sharing, has been in a SECRET relationship for NINE MONTHS.

    Yes, for nine whole months, 21-year-old Miley has kept her relationship with producer Mike Will Made-It totally on the down-low; not sharing racy selfies on Instagram, walking the red carpet with him, or talking about him to the press. So who is this mystery man?

    Angelina Jolie is nothing if not honest. The 39-year-old actress has been transparent about her "dark" past -- which she admits includes drug use and other "dangerous" things. So when a video recently resurfaced that shows the mother of six pacing the length of her New York City apartment in the late '90s reportedly strung out on heroin, no one should have been surprised -- or the least bit scandalized by it.

    And the only person who should be ashamed by its existence is the person who let it "leak" and is trying to make money off of it.

    Mila Kunis isn't your typical Hollywood starlet. You won't find the down-to-earth 30-year-old actress strutting down the red carpet on her day off, and she isn't updating her social media accounts day and night. In fact, she doesn't use social media at all (maybe because her fiancé Ashton Kutcher does enough tweeting for the both of them). She keeps her private life relatively private.

    So it comes as no surprise that when it comes to her wedding plans, she hasn't given us much ... until now.

    Back in 2005, Chris Martin was voted the World's Sexiest Vegetarian. But that title no longer fits, not because nine years passed and he is getting older. It's because he is no longer a vegetarian!

    Yup, the newly single Martin confessed that he is back to eating meat following his conscious uncoupling with Gwyneth Paltrow.

    What did he say?

    It was nearly a year ago that we first heard the murmurings, and we could only dare to hope that the dream would become a reality. It seemed too good to be true, really -- in a world of Hollywood blockbusters, could there be room for a small film with a big heart? Thankfully, its makers never gave up on their goal of continuing the greatest story ever told via the incandescent presence of Tara Reid, and today we can see the first sneak peek at their efforts. I am of course talking about the Sharknado sequel, which bears the poetic title Sharknado 2: The Second One.

    Based on the three-minute clip, Sharknado 2: The Second One successfully takes on the challenge of topping the original film through its beautiful tale of heroism in the face of unspeakable danger. As if the stunningly creative premise -- a sharknado is unleashed in New York City -- isn't enough, this masterpiece also features Kelly Osbourne, Perez Hilton, Matt Lauer, Andy Dick, and Downtown Julie Brown.
