Can't wait for "The Hangover III"? Does "Spring Breakers" even seem too far away? Well, you can get your boozy party on this weekend with "21 And Over," and no drunken escapade is complete without songs to go with it and the upcoming film is ready to pump up the volume.

...well, that certainly would've been different. Mark Wahlberg hasn't dipped his toes into the sci-fi genre much, and we'd reckon maybe that's because of the whole "Planet Of The Apes" thing. And while he's reuniting with his bud Michael Bay for "Transfomers 4," the actor reveals that he couldn've been part of another icon franchise...had he understood the script.

"Twilight" is done, "The Hunger Games" is off and running, and Hollywood is itching to find a new YA franchise to pin their bank accounts one. Warner Bros. flopped earlier this month with "Beautiful Creatures," a supernatural Southern Gothic spin on the romance between an otherworldly creature and a human, and now "The Mortal Instruments" will take a crack at trying to get a tweenage audience all hot 'n bothered.

5 Ways To Make Next Year's Oscars Better Than The 2013 Ceremony

The Oscar show always seems to be a mix of time honored tradition and off-the-wall experimentation (remember that Cirque Du Soleil thing last year? Pharrell playing in the balcony of the Dolby Theater?) and 2013 was no different. While the Academy tried to court younger viewers by choosing "Family Guy" creator and "Ted" director Seth MacFarlane to host, the decision to pay tribute to movie musicals appealed distinctly to an entirely different demographic. So no surprise, the show was a mess.

So with all the Oscar hardware handed out, back to what Hollywood knows how to do best: make reboots and sequels. And one project Hollywood keeps trying to make happen is new version of "The Crow." At one time, the movie was gearing up as a vehicle for Bradley Cooper with "28 Weeks Later" helmer Juan Carlos Fresnadillo directing, but they both wound up leaving the project by the end of 2011, and not much has been heard since. But it seems a new face may be eager to go goth.

The red carpet may be all rolled up, but that doesn't mean the Oscar controversy will end there. With Ben Affleck's "Argo" taking home the widely expected prize for Best Picture last night at the Oscars, the Iranian government -- who have never been big fans of the movie in general -- haven't wasted any time in weighing in.

While the term "remake" generally makes us shudder, the upcoming do-overs of horror staples "Evil Dead" and "Carrie" are giving reasons for optimism. The former is looking to take its R-rating right to the edge with a picture that takes inspiration from Sam Raimi's original and runs with it, promising audiences on the poster that it will be the most terrifying movie they've ever seen. Meanwhile, the latter puts Chloe Moretz in the iconic lead role, with none other than Kimberly Peirce directing in what will hopefully be a unique take on Stephen King's story. And now some new images are here to tease what's in store for both films.

Here's one last victory lap for "Django Unchained." Last night, the film took home two awards which were both a bit of a surprise -- Best Supporting Actor for Christoph Waltz and Best Original Screenplay for Quentin Tarantino. But just before the festivities got underway in California, over the weekend a new video for the hit slavery/vegeance/western/comedy/action movie arrived, mixing up all those familiar ingredients into one musically charged whole.

We have to admit that if anyone had told us that Pepper Potts would serve as the emotional lynchpin in the "Iron Man" movies before they came out, we wouldn't have believed them. However, thanks to some great chemistry between Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert Downey Jr., and decent writing to go along with it, the pair serve as the best and most fleshed out relationship of any of the Marvel movies. And once again, in the series' third installment, their union is being put to the test.
