J.J. Abrams stopped by Conan this week to promote his new movie Star Trek Into Darkness. He also wanted to clear the air about a scene from the film that's creating controversy for briefly showing Alice Eve in her underwear. To settle the score, he brought a delete scene from the film that shows villain Benedict Cumberbatch shirtless in the shower. It's a quick look, but still pretty entertaining. Check it out:

If you were hoping to see more of Jennifer Aniston's naughty side after her turn in Horrible Bosses, then the trailer for her new film, We're the Millers, is probably up your alley. Aniston stars as a stripper who agrees to go along on a mission with her drug-dealing neighbor (Jason Sudeikis), posing as said-neighbor's wife. They also enlist a couple of random kids (one of which is played by Emma Roberts) to help them cross the border into Mexico.
The preview has a few laughs, and also feels a bit like a who's who of the comedy world, with appearances by Ed Helms, Kathryn Hahn, Ken Marino, and Nick Offerman. I support any project that breaks Aniston out of the typically cheesy romantic comedy formula, and let's face it: we all know she has a bikini bod that's worth flaunting, and there's plenty of that here. Plus, she and Sudeikis just might make a dysfunctional pair worth rooting for.
We're the Millers hits theaters Aug. 9, but check out the trailer when you read more
James Franco's As I Lay Dying earned a standing ovation following its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, but while it shows promise for Franco's burgeoning directorial career, its stumbles highlight his newness to helming films.
William Faulkner's classic novel As I Lay Dying is a famously dense story about the destitute Bundren clan and their calamitous journey to lay their matriarch, Addie, to rest in Jefferson, MS. The trip unleashes a dismal chain of events that leaves them all somehow changed or scarred — sometimes physically.
It seems fitting that Franco, an actor-slash-author himself, would combine his love for film and literature in his feature-length directorial debut. And he does an impressive job unraveling the complex narrative, which in the book is told by 15 different characters and jumps vaguely backward and forward in time. Sure, there's no doubt that it's ambitious for a first-time filmmaker to take on one of the most acclaimed novels in American history, but at least Franco's devotion to, and admiration of, the source material is clear. He does well capturing its Southern Gothic sensibility, shooting in the mostly drab colors of the Great Depression and drawing appropriately beaten-down performances from his actors.
For the rest of my review, just read more.
New Girl's Jess and Nick share an obvious chemistry during the first two seasons, and fans could finally celebrate when watching the couple define their relationship in the season finale. Even when they're dating other people and insisting they're nothing more than friends, there was still plenty of will-they-won't-they tension — until, well, they did. Now that one of TV's cutest couples is officially together, take a look at the most adorable moments between Nick and Jess!
Actor and all-around adorable person Joseph Gordon-Levitt is making his directorial debut with Don Jon (formerly titled Don Jon's Addiction), in which he stars as a guy with old-fashioned values — mostly. He prioritizes his family, his friends, his faith, but most of all his porn. When the normally womanizing Jon falls for hopeless romantic Barbara (Scarlett Johansson), he thinks he can juggle her and his secret addiction. Then she walks in on him in front of the computer, and he's not checking his email.
I know this doesn't sound like a traditionally romantic film, but the trailer is so damn charming! The movie seems quirky yet painfully honest, and how can you resist seeing Gordon-Levitt singing "Good Vibrations" to himself in the car? His cute personal message at the beginning about how important this film is to him doesn't hurt, either. The movie comes out on Oct. 18, and you can check out the trailer after the jump.
The Cannes Film Festival is the most prominent cinematic celebration in the world, making it a place where a film can either skyrocket to success — or crash and burn.
This year, a handful of movies came to dominate the conversation among industry insiders in the South of France. Sofia Coppola's study of youth and excess in LA, The Bling Ring, and the latest Coen brothers offering, Inside Llewyn Davis, were two of the most talked-about projects in contention at the fest, and some unexpected films also made a splash. Click through for our breakdown of the six movies that got the most lip service — both good and bad! — during our time at this year's festival!
