'Super 8' In IMAX: Will you be seeing J.J. Abrams' retro sci-fi opus on the big screen or REALLY BIG screen?

 Super 8 — which has become something of an obsession here at EW.com, as our recent bevy of posts on the film can attest — opens throughout the day on 325 screens in North America as part of a sneak preview push organized by Paramount Pictures and Twitter. The slate of showings is also a big deal for IMAX, which is hosting the majority of these previews: Never before has the exhibitor effectively opened a movie on this many of its locations. “We have been talking for some time the notion about having a release window this early,” says Greg Foster, chairman and president of Filmed Entertainment at IMAX. “This is new territory for us. We have opened a couple movies in a handful of countries — Russia, France, Mexico — two or three days early, but no more than 15 theaters. This is the first time we’ve done it domestically on this level.”  READ FULL STORY

Lionsgate announced that Latarsha Rose and Brooke Bundy have joined the Gary Ross adaptation of YA dystopian thriller The Hunger Games. Rose, whose resumé includes guest turns on All My Children and Bones, will play Peeta’s stylist Portia. Relative newcomer Bundy will play Octavia, a member of Katniss Everdeen’s beloved stylist Cinna’s prep team. As Capitol-dwellers, they’re expected to have garish, heavily stylized appearances — from their clothes to their skin dye. Meanwhile, Hunger Games fans pine for news of their Cinna.

Filming on The Hunger Games, which stars among many others Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson, Josh Hutcherson, and Elizabeth Banks, began last week in North Carolina. EW recently revealed an exclusive first look at Lawrence in costume as trilogy heroine Katniss.

For more on The Hunger Games, including photos of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss and a guide to the film’s other characters, pick up the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, on stands now.

'The Hunger Games': Jennifer Lawrence defends her Peeta and Gale -- EXCLUSIVE

After weeks of hand-wringing about whether Jennifer Lawrence was the right girl to pick up Hunger Games heroine Katniss Everdeen’s bow, fans seemed to have taken heart from both EW’s exclusive first look and Lawrence’s sensitive take on the character. That frees up some mental energy to concentrate on other matters surrounding Gary Ross’ movie adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ epic adventure. Like, will Josh Hutcherson look good blonde? And is Liam Hemsworth an interesting actor, or just a muscular one? Here, Lawrence offers her take on what makes them the right guys to play Katniss’ District 12 homeboys Peeta and Gale.

What scene from 'The Hunger Games' is Jennifer Lawrence most excited to shoot? -- EXCLUSIVE

 Yesterday, EW revealed the exclusive first look of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games. The 20-year-old Oscar nominee was first turned onto Suzanne Collins’ beloved dystopian trilogy, about children forced to fight to death to amuse a brutal government, last Christmas. Her mother, who runs a summer day camp in Lawrence’s hometown of Louisville, Ky., lent her her own dog-eared copies and Lawrence fell fast and hard. As she gobbled down the books, two scenes stuck out as ones that would be a particular thrill for any actress to play. With filming on Gary Ross’ movie kicking off this week in North Carolina, she’s living the dream.

Why Robert Pattinson can't wait for 'Breaking Dawn Pt 2'

 It’s clear that the stars of The Twilight Saga have become close over the years — particularly during the long process of shooting Breaking Dawn Part 1 and Part 2 (in theaters November 2011 and 2012). “Having to spend so much time with people…it’s just nice when you like them. There is a real bond. I think also there’s something humbling about wearing the makeup and contacts,” says Robert Pattinson.

But of course all that bonding doesn’t stop him from teasing one of his co-stars. “Except Taylor [Lautner]–he doesn’t have to do a thing. He’s managed [to do] no work on this last one,” Pattinson laughs. “He’s always a wolf!” However, as Pattinson is quick to point out, Lautner will face plenty of challenges when it comes to Breaking Dawn Part 2 (beware, spoilers ahead!). “He has to fall in love with a baby,” Pattinson says (kinda gleefully). “Oh, God, I can’t wait to see how that goes.”

Lautner doesn’t seem too surprised to hear about Pattinson’s ribbing. “Oh my gosh. That sounds like him,” he says. “Everyone is always complaining to me that I don’t have to wear the contacts, I don’t have to wear the white makeup or wear wigs and all that stuff. And I’m like, ‘I’m the one in the freezing rain and cold not wearing a shirt! I paid my dues in New Moon and Eclipse.’”

For more behind-the-scenes details on Breaking Dawn, plus exclusive photos — including one of Bella and Edward in a steamy waterfall embrace — pick up the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, on stands now.

Kristen Stewart on the 'Breaking Dawn' baby decision: 'I'm so on Bella's Side'

We won’t get a chance to see Breaking Dawn until it’s in theaters in November, but in this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly we got a first look at some of the action, as well as hearing from The Twilight Saga‘s cast and stars (warning: spoilers ahead!). READ FULL STORY

Harry Potter and the Twice Shot Ending: Behind the scenes of 'Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows -- Part 2'

Entering Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 (in theaters July 15), the filmmakers behind what’s certain to be one of the biggest films of the decade faced the challenge — and daunting pressure — of finishing strong, of sticking the landing, of simply not screwing up the ending. But director David Yates had more to sweat than just making sure that the final battle between Not-a-boy/Not-yet-a-man wizard-in-training Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and He Who Must Not Be Named/OH, BOO! IT’S VOLDEMORT ALREADY! (Ralph Fiennes) was certifiably magical. The climactic novel in J.K. Rowling’s blockbuster book series actually ends with an epilogue set 19 years after the Harry/Voldy apocalyptic wand duel, a memorable coda with the huge emotional moments worthy of a tissue or two. (Our guess is that most of you have read the book at least once – but SPOILER ALERT! nonetheless.)  READ FULL STORY

The Making of 'Scream': Matthew Lillard looks back on filming the horror classic

In honor of the release of Scream 4 this Friday, EW is looking back at the original 1996 film and talking to cast members about their best production memories. Matthew Lillard played Stu Macher, who was ultimately revealed to be one of the film’s two killers, along with best bud Billy Loomis (Skeet Ulrich). “It’s weird now that so much time has elapsed and we all know that it’s become iconic, like a piece of film history,” says the actor. EW talked to Lillard about reading the original script for the first time, filming the movie’s intense climax, and if he’s sad that his character didn’t make it to any of the sequels.  READ FULL STORY

Alamo Drafthouse gives 'Scream' and 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' gory new posters

Unless you live under a rock — or have recently been stabbed by a Munch-masked madman — you will be aware that horror legend Wes Craven’s new movie Scream 4 hits cinemas this Friday. In anticipation of the slasher sequel’s release, the Alamo Drafthouse‘s collectible art boutique arm Mondo has announced that it is making Craven the latest subject of its “Director’s Series” poster line (previous auteurs who have been honored in this way by the Austin, Tx., cinema include Guillermo del Toro and Source Code film maker Duncan Jones).

The first two Craven movies to be given new posters are the original 1996 Scream and the Johnny Depp-featuring A Nightmare on Elm Street. Swamp Thing, The Hills Have Eyes, and The Last House on the Left will all also be granted the Director’s Series treatment.

You can see the (extremely) blood-drenched artwork for Scream and Nightmare below. Take a look and tell us what you think: READ FULL STORY

'Scream 4' star Courteney Cox on David Arquette: 'We're probably better now than we were during that movie'

Courteney Cox reprises her role as tabloid reporter Gale Weathers in Scream 4, out this Friday, but it’s a very different Gale than we’ve seen in the other films. “Her life is pretty dull and she wants some excitement,” says the Cougar Town star. “She’s been married to Dewey for like 10 years. She’s been writing books. She’s completely tapped out and going through a major dry spell. Sidney comes into town to promote her book.” And that’s basically when all hell breaks lose and folks start dyin’. EW talked to Cox about the movie’s difficult production, her memories of the original film, and the status of her relationship with husband David Arquette.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Do you remember reading the original Scream script for the first time?
COURTENEY COX:
Oh yeah. I went after it! I wanted to play that part. I loved it. I thought the script was funny and scary, and the opening with Drew Barrymore was insane. I was such a huge fan. READ FULL STORY
