Walt Disney meets P.L. Travers in first clip from 'Saving Mr. Banks' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

If you’ve seen Disney’s beloved 1964 classic Mary Poppins, you probably assume that the process of bringing the effervescent musical about the magical nanny to the big screen was, like Mary Poppins herself, “practically perfect in every way.” Well, not exactly.

As chronicled in the upcoming Disney film Saving Mr. Banks, the real-life tale behind Mary Poppins was a thorny creative struggle that was often short on spoonfuls of sugar, with Poppins author P.L. Travers (played in the film by Emma Thompson) fighting Walt Disney (Tom Hanks) every step of the way out of fear that he’d suck the magic and mystery out of the character she’d created.

In Entertainment Weekly‘s Holiday Movie Preview issue, on stands this Friday, we delve deeper into the real story behind Saving Mr. Banks, which hits theaters Dec. 20. But in the meantime, here’s an exclusive clip from the movie, in which the prickly Travers meets Disney for the first time and gets her initial taste of his famously irresistible charm.

'Twilight Forever' DVD first look: Kristen Stewart got her rear end 'molded' to help Taylor Lautner? -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Twilight-BTS.jpg

Prepare yourselves, Twihards. Your DVD collection is about to experience a Cullen invasion (the best kind of invasion!).

Tuesday marks the release of Twilight Forever: The Complete Saga on DVD and Blu-ray. Other than a high-definition look at Edward’s sparkling skin, this DVD set also comes with some special behind-the-scenes clips. For instance, did you know that Kristen Stewart got her rear end ‘molded’ in order to create a device that would help Taylor Lautner carry her around for long periods of time (think Jacob and Bella’s walk through the woods in Eclipse)? Well, thanks to an exclusive behind-the-scenes look, we have proof.

Turns out, Lautner carrying Stewart while reciting three pages worth of dialogue wasn’t as easy as it looked, especially after the third or fourth take. “I literally went and got my rear end molded to make this day easier on Taylor,” Stewart says. Check out the video below:

'Enough Said': Julia Louis-Dreyfus Q&A turns into adorable mini-'Seinfeld' reunion -- VIDEO

DREYFUS-HARRIS.jpg

If anyone can make you seek out the bittersweet romantic comedy Enough Said maybe George Costanza’s mother can pressure you into it.

Enough Said, which is in theaters now, stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as a massage therapist who discovers that one of her clients (Catherine Keener) is the ex-wife of her new boyfriend (a lovable, lunkish James Gandolfini) and decides to use the relationship to secretly gather intel on her new man.

At a recent Q&A for the Nicole Holofcener film, Louis-Dreyfus talked a lot about her late co-star Gandolfini, whose final lead performance is also one of his most sweet and tender, and making the leap from cringe-comedy like her Emmy-winning role on Veep to a film with a more dramatic and romantic edge.

But then, at the very end, the entire show was stolen by one 85-year-old woman …

Angelina Jolie's 'Unbroken': First photos from set -- EXCLUSIVE

Earlier this month Angelina Jolie began production on her second directorial feature, Unbroken, due in theaters Christmas 2014. The film is adapted from Laura Hillenbrand’s bestseller of the same name and tells the true and incredible story of Louis Zamperini, an Olympic runner who, while enlisted during World War II, survived a plane crash into the ocean. And that’s just the beginning of the trials Zamperini faced: he spent 47 days adrift on a raft in the Pacific only to then be imprisoned in a brutal Japanese POW camp for over two years.

“On set, we started to joke and say, ‘Tomorrow will be easier,’ knowing full well that on this challenging shoot, there are no easy days,” Jolie says via email. “Anytime it gets tough, we think of the real men who lived through this, and no one complains. In fact, we all just feel honored to be here.”

In the photo above, Jolie is on set in Australia’s Moreton Bay. For more exclusive photos, including one of Jack O’Connell as Zamperini and Finn Wittrock (with safety driver Carla Thexton), click through below:

Cult horror flick 'Trick 'r Treat' gets a sequel: Michael Dougherty previews what's next for Sam -- EXCLUSIVE

TRICK-R-TREAT-2.jpg

Michael Dougherty’s Trick ‘r Treat was the little horror film that could. Telling the story of Sam, the unofficial mascot of Halloween who punished anyone who dared to diss the holiday, Trick ‘r Treat was originally scheduled for a theatrical release in 2007. But after much confusion, the film was given a straight-to-DVD release in 2009. Four years later, the film has attracted a cult following, all of whom are dying to find out what’s next for Sam. The good news? There’s finally a sequel in the works.

After tonight’s screening of the film, which closed out Beyond Fest 2013 at L.A.’s Egyptian Theater, Dougherty announced that Trick ‘r Treat 2 will be coming your way soon enough. With Legendary Pictures behind the film, Trick ‘r Treat 2 hopes to make its way to theaters, unlike its predecessor. We caught up with Dougherty, who will be writing and directing the sequel, to talk about Sam’s return:

'Diana' clip: The Princess and the heart surgeon -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Diana-exclusive-clip.jpg

How does an ordinary guy ask out a Princess?

Movies love to posit scenarios where that might happen. Most of the time it’s just a storytelling fantasy (à la Roman Holiday), but in the new Princess Diana biopic (out Nov. 1), we actually get a chance to see an interpretation of how the late Princess of Wales met Dr. Hasnat Khan, the heart surgeon she fell in love with in the final years of her life.

Check out the exclusive clip of their second meeting below, when Khan (played by Lost‘s Naveen Andrews) gets up the nerve to ask out Diana (Naomi Watts).

'X-Men: Days of Future Past': New images from next summer's comic book epic -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS

Following Thursday’s Instagram tease of the new trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past, we have an exclusive look at more aspects of the highly anticipated new film, which hits theaters May 23. Patrick Stewart maneuvers in his new hover-chair as Professor X, Jennifer Lawrence dons full blue mode (and yellow eyes) as Mystique, and Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage addresses the U.S. president as Bolivar Trask, the creator of mutant-hunting robots called Sentinels.

The new film, inspired by Chris Claremont and John Byrne’s beloved 1981 comic-book storyline of the same name, unites the cast from the original X-Men films (Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Ian McKellen, etc.) with those from 2011′s prequel First Class (Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult) in a time-bending adventure. The plot follows Wolverine (Jackman) as he travels from the bleak future to the 1970s, sent by Professor X (Stewart) and Magneto (McKellen) to change certain key events.

Bryan Singer, returning to the franchise after directing the first two X-Men films, says Days of Future Past will take viewers on an emotional ride. “The stakes are high, not just for the world and the future but also the stakes of some of the characters,” says the director. “Clearly there was enormous fragmentation between the characters that happened at the end of First Class. That left the characters on a certain path. This movie will show you where those paths lead.”

'Contracted': Feel the fever with the horror film's nasty new poster -- EXCLUSIVE

Contracted-movie-poster.jpg

Did the condom-industrial complex (or “Big Propha,” as we conspiracy theorists like to call it) secretly finance Contracted? Probably not. But this new horror film from writer-director Eric England (Madison County) does sound like the ultimate in safe-sex commercials. Najarra Townsend (Me
 and
 You
 and
 Everyone
 We
 Know) plays a young woman named Samantha who contracts a gruesome disease after spending the night with a mysterious man (You’re Next screenwriter Simon Barrett) in what is being hyped as “a zombie film like you’ve never imagined.”

Contracted — which co-stars Texas Chainsaw Massacre II actress Caroline Williams and Charley Koontz from Community — is released theatrically Nov. 22 and will also be available on VOD from that date. But you can check out both the film’s new poster above and trailer below.
