So what happens when you win an Oscar? Your long-developing project gets the kick in the pants it needs to get made. And that's just what happened for "The Descendants" writers Nat Faxon and Jim Rash. Originally set for director Shawn Levy ("Real Steel") in 2007, "The Way, Way Back" was first delayed by the WGA strike of that year, and was stuck in limbo before finally coming back to life last fall. After the pair took home an Oscar for the screenplay for "The Descendants," everything started moving fast, and with a pretty great cast on board.

Lastly, here is Victoria Justice in "Fun Size." Uh, yeah. We're not sure what else to say about this movie other than it's "Adventures In Babysitting" for people who were actually young enough to have a babysitter when that movie came out. Or more likely, weren't even born yet.

Co-starring Jane Levy, the film tells the story of Wren, who gets stuck babysitting her little brother on Halloween, the same evening when the hottest guy in school is throwing a party. Oh noes! But things really get out of hand when Wren loses her little brother and sets out to find him, leading to an adventure in babysitting. "Fun Size" unwraps October 26th.
