'The Hobbit': Evangeline Lilly's elven warrior Tauriel is ... Batman? -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Don’t mess with Tauriel, man. Before yesterday’s global fan event for The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug, series newcomer Evangeline Lilly asked the audience in a Los Angeles theater whether there were any haters present. Her elven warrior is a new creation for the Peter Jackson film, and one of just two major female characters (Cate Blanchett’s Galadriel is the other.)

Some purist fans of J.R.R. Tolkien’s 1937 novel have expressed objections to such revisionism, so a few bold hands went up in the theater.

Lilly, a lifelong fan of Tolkien’s books herself, vowed to change their minds.

By the end it was clear she loved the world of Middle-earth as much as anyone. She even corrected Jackson’s pronunciation of the dragon Smaug, whom he kept calling “Schmowwg.”

After the presentation, Lilly stuck around for this extended Q&A with the moderator (me) and some of the audience members. By the end, the former Lost actress revealed some of the surprising backstory for Tauriel that might earn the benefit of the doubt from some die-hards.

As you’ll see, Tauriel’s origin story made me think immediately of a certain shadowy DC Comics hero.

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:

'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.

Check out a clip from the Vincent Cassel-starring dark satire 'Our Day Will Come'

our-day-will-come.jpg

In the darkly comic satire Our Day Will Come, the great Vincent Cassel plays a red-haired psychologist who takes under his wing a bullied teen of similar hair-hue, played by Olivier Barthélémy, to help him develop some backbone. What ensues is a picaresque and extremely bizarre tale of drinking, nudity, violence, carjacking, jacuzzi-despoiling, impetuous hair removal, and general insanity as our two protagonists embark on an incident-packed quest to reach the spiritual home of the red-haired: Ireland.

Our Day Will Come is the debut film from Romain Gavras – previously best known for directing the videos for Kanye West & Jay-Z’s “No Church in the Wild” and M.I.A.’s “Born Free” — and is released on digital platforms today.

You can check out a clip from the film below.

The producer has given EW a sneak peek at the film’s poster (which you can check out above) ahead of American Muscle‘s launch at next month’s American Film Market, where the film be repped by Stevens, with his fellow producers Jeffrey Giles and Michael Lurie of Automatic Entertainment handling international sales.

Every viewer, at one point or another, has asked the question, “What do movie stars do on set when they’re not filming?” We hear stories of pranks, or certain stars who head back to their trailer to nap. And then there’s Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson — who play Quidditch?

We have an exclusive video of Vaughn and Wilson behind the scenes of The Internship, enjoying a hot summer day with fellow cast members by playing the Harry Potter-inspired game. Surprisingly, Wilson wasn’t familiar with the game, but by the end of the day, “there was something about that game that just loved me,” Wilson explains in the video.

Watch the Quidditch match that resulted in one broken finger in our exclusive video below:

'Big Ass Spider!' director Mike Mendez talks about his big ass creature feature

Big-Ass-Spider.jpg

Is there a better name for a film about a big ass spider than Big Ass Spider!? We think not! But director Mike Mendez (The Gravedancers) says his self-explanatory creature feature, which hits select cinemas on Oct. 18 and will also be available on VOD, was almost released under a far-less-memorable moniker.

“The producers did not want to call it Big Ass Spider!,” recalls the filmmaker. “But I was very fearful that if we called it Mega Spider or something people would just think, ‘Oh, this is just another monster b-movie.’”

The directors of 'Zero Charisma' talk about their Dungeons and Dragons-themed comedy

zero-charisma.jpg

In the Dungeons and Dragons-themed Zero Charisma (which comes out tomorrow, and is also available on VOD) a socially awkward D&D obsessive called Scott (Sam Eidson) loses both his role-playing game and his friends to a suave hipster-type, Miles (Garrett Graham), with darkly comedic consequences. The film’s writer and co-director Andrew Matthews was inspired to make the film by his own history as a gamer and ‘Dungeon Master.’

“I’ve been playing Dungeons & Dragons since 5th grade,” he explains. “It’s a nerdy obsession but it’s a very creative one too and it’s a social hobby where lots of eccentric types get together.” Matthews directed the film with his real-life partner Katie Graham who says part of her job was to de-nerdify the screenplay. “I offered the perspective of the non-gamer,” she recalls. “I would go through the script and go, ‘Okay, this is getting too inside baseball.’”
