    Bad news, everyone who greatly enjoyed Matthew McConaughey crooning "Ladies of Tampa" in Magic Mike. And also the parts of the movie when he wore a cowboy hat and a thong. And the part when he taught Alex Pettyfer's character to grind in front a mirror. And -- well, let me cut to the chase: sadly, it has been confirmed that McConaughey will not be returning to the Magic Mike franchise. I KNOW, right? Let us all bow our heads and observe a moment of silence for Dallas, the strip-club owner who gave us the fantastic line, "Fact is, the law says you cannot touch! But I think I see a lotta lawbreakers up in this house tonight ..."

    The only silver lining to this incredibly upsetting news comes in the form of a tweet about Magic Mike 2 from actor Joe Manganiello.

    Supermodel and Queen of Instagram Cara Delevingne already has most of the Internet's undying love and admiration, but now that she's landed the lead role in the next adaptation of a John Green novel, that love might just be more than the web can bear. I happen to love Paper Towns even more than The Fault in Our Stars (possibly because its Central Florida setting so reminds me of my own adolescence), so I really, truly hope Delevingne can pull off playing Margo Roth Spiegelman, the manic-pixie-dream-girl-next-door who runs away from home, leaving behind a set of clues for her neighbor, Quentin, to find.

    She's already got Green's seal of approval. "Cara Delevingne's audition blew everyone away (including me!) and she understands Margo profoundly. I am so excited!" he tweeted on Tuesday. Who is this Margo? Quentin, the narrator (who'll be played by TFIOS' Nat Wolff), spends the book learning about his lifelong crush.

    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.

    Finally, a full trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 is available for our viewing pleasure! It's far longer than all those quick teasers we were privvy to during the past few months, and the full trailer just goes to show how much the series has grown -- both in scope and story. Seriously, some of these effects are super badass.

    Now that Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) has been brainwashed, President Snow (Donald Sutherland) is using him as a weapon just like the rebels are using Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence). Though at least the kid is alive. No doubt some kind of rescue mission will go down -- but will he remember anything? And there are lots of quick glances at characters like Haymitch (Woody Harrelson), Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks), Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth), Plutarch Heavensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman), and Margaery Tyrell Cressida (Natalie Dormer). And no, I refuse to stop mixing those characters up.

    Do you know whose birthday is on September 10? No peeking! No cheating! No googling! If you are absolutely obsessed with Fifty Shades of Grey, then you know that it's none other than Anastasia Steele's birthday. She was born on September 10, 1989, and that must be one hell of a lucky day on which to be born, as she is enjoying a fulfilling fictional life of lots of riches, a super hot, kinky husband, and a sex life it seems every woman has been secretly fantasizing about since the dawn of time.

    Come on, who says fairy tales are dead?

    Anyway, in honor of Anastasia Steele's birthday, the folks behind the Fifty Shades of Grey movie released a brand-new photo for fans to geek out over. Dakota Johnson, the actress who plays her, definitely knows how to tease, that's for sure!

New posters have been released to promote Mockingjay, and there's a lot of guns, a lot of wings, a lot of black, and a hot, head-half-shaven Natalie Dormer. What more could you ask for, really? And there's no doubt about it ... if you haven't read the books in a while, you will most likely have to google some of these names.

    Ah, propoganda! Something every Hunger Games fan is most likely familiar with.

    Check out the newest posters below and proceed to geek out until you can see the movie on November 21.

    The first trailer for Disney's Into the Woods has just been released! Finally, fans can get a pretty solid look at the film adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's hit musical. Wayyyy back in the day (okay, 1991), I caught the American Playhouse version on television, starring Bernadette Peters as the witch, Chip Zien as the baker, and Joanna Gleason as the baker's wife. In this updated, far more stylistic and special effects-laden version, Johnny Depp is playing the wolf, Meryl Streep is playing the witch, Anna Kendrick is playing Cinderella, Chris Pine is playing her prince, Emily Blunt is playing the baker's wife ... crikey, there are just way too many famous people in this film.

    Well, if anything, you've most likely heard "Children Will Listen" sung at some kid's graduation.

    The original Sondheim musical is hilarious, dark, with completely unexpected plot twists on classic fairy tales. Needless to say, if any musical needed a film update, this one makes perfect sense.

    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.

    A third teaser, after the release of super-tiny teasers "Together As One" and "Unity," has been unleashed on humanity for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. The first two featured Donald Sutherland as President Snow giving propaganda speeches on behalf of "the Capitol." In the newest teaser trailer, "Our Leader the Mockingjay," which runs for about a minute, Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence, duh, is the face of the rebellion, showing how grand the scope has grown since the first couple of films.

    There's also a heartbreaking peek at Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee, who does a lot of the narrating, Natalie Dormer as Margaery Tyrell Cressida, and Julianne Moore as District 13's President Alma Coin. Hottie Liam Hemsworth also makes an appearance -- but there's no Josh Hutcherson. It's more than worth a look if you're at all a Hunger Games fan!

    Sigh. After months of crazy anticipation, we finally got to see the Fifty Shades of Grey movie trailer yesterday. But then we all kind of scratched our heads and said, "Huh?" after watching it.

    Ok, so the scene where Christian Grey throws Anastasia Steele up against the wall in the elevator got our pulses racing a little (um, what woman wouldn't want a dude to kiss her like that?). Other than that? The general consensus seems to be along the lines of ... "meh."

    Oh, and exactly no one I've talked to thinks that Jamie Dornan is the right fit for Christian. Like not even close.
