Everybody has that one movie that they've watched so many times, "knowing it by heart" doesn't even begin to describe the relationship. It's the film that you drop everything to watch when it comes on TV, or that you bought and wore out the VHS copy, and then the DVD and the Blu-Ray... and you're still happy to watch it again on Netflix. Maybe it all started with what your family liked to watch (or what they hated) or what ended up in your stocking at holiday time, or what you fell in love with at the theater. Below, the HitFix editorial staff shares its most-watched movies of all time. What is yours? Tell us in the comments! Donna Dickens "Titanic" I was that fourteen year old girl. The one that saw “Titanic” in theaters multiple times (my personal tally was seven.) I bought the VHS two-pack. I recorded the »

Last season, New Girl dropped in the ratings -- but not nearly as much as many other Fox shows. Will this quirky sitcom remain a bright spot on the network's schedule. Is it essentially guaranteed a fifth season renewal (because of syndication profits) or could it actually be cancelled? Stay tuned.
New Girl revolves around free-spirited educator Jess (Zooey Deschanel), her four single male friends (Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris, and Damon Wayans Jr.), and her childhood best friend who's now a model (Hannah Simone).
The higher a show's ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- typically the following morning, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.

Under the pressure of her taboo romance with her colleague, Jess (Zooey Deschanel) is literally coming undone. When Ryan (Julian Morris) turns up at the loftmates' holiday singles party, Jess tries to set a few ground rules to keep their relationship buttoned-up. Unfortunately, her sultry-in-scarlet velvet dress has different intentions. Let's just say "Mr. G" has had an eyeful by the time Jess finishes telling him all the unexpected ways that she is totally not acting on her attraction to him. »

Watch: Jess Has Meth in Her Boobs and We Can't Stop Laughing!
Let's take a look at the dating line-up, shall we? Winston (Lamorne Morris) is setting Coach (Damon Waynes Jr.) up with Pepper »
For a performer whose career was so short-lived, Janis Joplin has been hugely influential and such a largely contentious figure in the world of music. We’ve recently gotten a Jimi Hendrix biopic, along with music stories about everyone from the short lived (Ian Curtis, Jim Morrison, John Lennon) to the long-living legends (Johnny Cash, Ray Charles), so it makes sense that a Joplin biopic is long past due.
Late last week, Deadline was breaking news that Jean-Marc Vallee had signed on to direct Get it While You Can, the working title for a Janis Joplin film with Amy Adams attached to star and sing in the film. This would be Vallee’s fourth film following Dallas Buyers Club, the upcoming Wild, and the just-wrapped Demolition.
Adams is terrific casting, and Vallee is promising, but we’ve been down this road before, and a new director attached is no closer »

Michael Stahl-David‘s career is going to pot! (That’s funny ’cause the show’s about weed.)
Stahl-David, who recently guest-starred on New Girl as a love interest for Zooey Deschanel’s Jess, will play Bobby Nickel, a charismatic, brilliant and driven man who came from nothing and quickly learned to make his own rules. Now a husband, father and successful pot runner working for a local Cuban drug lord, »
The long-in-the-works Janis Joplin biopic, Get It While You Can, will begin shooting in the second half of 2015 in Los Angeles and San Francisco with Amy Adams starring as the singer. Dallas Buyers Club director Jean-Marc Vallée is in negotiations to helm the picture, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Ron Terry, who previously executive produced a TV movie about Jimi Hendrix in 2000, and Teresa Kounin Terry wrote the script; Craig Borten and Melisa Wallack, who co-wrote Dallas Buyers Club together, are in negotiations to rewrite it.

She & Him -- singer Zooey Deschanel and guitarist M. Ward -- are turning their already-retro sound to ghosts from the past with their latest release, "Classics," in which they tackle tunes by Frank Sinatra, Carole King and more. But the new video for their latest single, a cover of Dusty Springfield's "Stay Awhile," finds them cavorting with what appear to be literal ghosts -- with the help of some green screen effects. It begins with Ward picking up an invisible guitar and deftly pickin' up a storm in a performance worthy of the Air Guitar World Championship. Soon, Deschanel is dancing around an immaculate California home, while being dipped, twirled and carried by an unseen partner, perhaps a long gone lover. Before long, she completely abandons reality and ends up dancing in the clouds, with the other angels. Watch the video here: "Classics" arrives December 2. »

Despite the lottery-esque sounding odds, the U.S Dramatic Competition section which produces the finest American indie specimens such as Frozen River, Winter’s Bone, Blue Valentine, Martha Marcy May Marlene, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Fruitvale Station and Whiplash is fairly consistent in terms of quality. Last year’s crop of sixteen have almost all had their theatrical releases with Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter being the last one out of the gates (pegged with an early 2015 release). Last week we individually looked at our top 80 Sundance Film Fest Predictions (you’ll find 30 other titles worth considering in our intro) and below, we’ve split the list into narrative and non-fiction film items and have both identified and color-coded our picks in an AtoZ cheat sheet. You’ll find 2015′s answer to Whiplash located somewhere in the stack below. Click on the individual titles below, for the film’s profile. »

Imagine your perfect romantic match. Imagine that personal enfolding you in a warm, comforting embrace. Now imagine that you're expressly forbidden to enjoy that embrace—because you're their boss. That's exactly what Jess (Zooey Deschanel) faces on the next episode of New Girl. After she's shipped off to a teachers' retreat with new hire Ryan Geauxinue (Julian Morris)—and yes, that name is pronounced Goes-in-you—Jess encounters a number of temptations as the retreat's instructor (guest star Lisa Bonet) thrusts the coworkers into a number of situations where they must "embrace the intimacy." But how exactly does Jess end up in Ryan's arms? »

Keep reading to see 22 of the most mind-boggling look-alike stars who could totally pass as siblings. Source: Getty »
With a trio of short films under his belt, Zachary Sluser hit indie film pay dirt with a measuring cup full of Sundance vets for his directorial debut. Starring Anton Yelchin, Zooey Deschanel, John Hawkes and supporting perfs from Alia Shawkat, Aubrey Plaza, Frank Langella and Ciaran Hinds, The Driftless Area wouldn’t be out of place at the fest as it is being tipped as a neo-noir dark romantic dramedy. Production began this past May in Vancouver, Canada with cinematographer Fjord Daniel Voldheim (Ragnarok) collaborating with a score supplied by Saunder Jurriaans & Daniel Bensi (Enemy).
Gist: Based on the novel of the same title by Tom Drury who co-wrote the screenplay with Sluser, this tells the story of a young man by the name of Pierre Hunter (Yelchin) who falls in love with a mysterious woman named Stella (Deschanel) and finds himself in a game out of cat and »

The only thing worse than living with your ex? Finding out the person you are dating is living with their ex! In Tuesday's all-new episode of New Girl, fans will finally get to see just how Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) deal with telling their dates that they still live together. And yes, it's just as hilarious and wacky as you'd expect. We've got an exclusive first look at the Fox sitcom's "Goldmine," featuring insight into the episode from writer Berkley Johnson and a sneak peek at Nick "playing gay" so Jess can get laid. Seriously! "Nick playing gay is based on 250 episodes of Three's Company," Johnson explains. "It just »
Jay Leno teases Jimmy Fallon in his "Tonight Show" return Before sitting down with his predecessor, Fallon allowed Leno to do a full standup set. Leno and Fallon then recalled all the photoshoots they did, showing pictures that never saw the light of day. Leno also made fun of Fallon for his lack of knowledge of cars, at one point grabbing Fallon’s “puppy paw” hand, and saying. "This is the hand of a 5-year-old and it's actually pink." Plus: Watch Leno crack up Fallon while joking about NBC. NBC reveals its fall finale dates “The Blacklist’s” fall finale is on Monday.

Deschanel was accompanied on location for New Girl in California by Jake Johnson (Nick Miller), Max Greenfield (Schmidt), Hannah Simone (Cece), Lamore Morris (Winston Bishop), and Damon Wayans Jr. (Coach). The gang appeared to heading off together on some sort of trip in the scene they were filming, as they were all carting along luggage.
Dressed in a plaid sweater, jeans and knee-high boots as Jess, Deschanel had a canvas tote bag stuffed with presents slung under her arm. During another scene, the actress was spotted wheeling a light blue suitcase standing outside a sliding glass door with Greenfield, Johnson and Simone.
When Deschanel isn’t on the New Girl set, she’s busy singing with her duo She & Him. Last month, »
On last night's New Girl fans were in for a rude awakening. Zooey Deschanel's sweetly crooned intro, the one with the brightly painted set pieces, had disappeared in place of a series of cast photos. Even more distressing, Deschanel's "who's that girl?" vocals were also no longer around, just the slightly amended tune remaining. I, for one, will miss it all. Fox confirmed to EW that last night was the first episode with the new credits, which are the ones that will be used in future episodes. Creator Liz Meriwether tweeted that they were amended to include Damon Wayans, »

Already a protective mommy! Jessica Biel and husband Justin Timberlake may have been keeping their baby news a secret for the past few months, but there was no denying the actress' baby bump as she filmed her guest spot on New Girl in a tight-fitting navy dress on Aug. 4. While on set, the 32-year-old mom-to-be held onto her growing belly before getting in front of the camera as Jess' (Zooey Deschanel) wedding nemesis. She kept her long brunette locks down and wore her gorgeous wedding ring. Us [...] »
As final prep took place for the 35th American Film Market in Santa Monica, temperatures began rising — and so did optimism that the independent marketplace would generate significant transactions.
A flurry of deals came together in the week leading up to the Afm’s opening Wednesday: Henry Cavill starring in the action-thriller “Stratton”; Morton Csokas joining Emilia Clarke in “Voice From the Stone”; Shekhar Kapur directing “Tiger’s Curse”; Mitch Glazer’s TV series “Magic City” (pictured) becoming a movie with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Bruce Willis and Bill Murray; Jon Bernthal and Catalina Sandino Moreno joining Catherine Zeta-Jones in drug-lord drama “The Godmother”; and Naomi Watts, Susan Sarandon and Elle Fanning starring in “Three Generations.”
Adding to the positive vibes were several recent funding announcements: Kevin Frakes’ PalmStar backing Basil Iwanyk’s Thunder Road and Bill Block’s Qed plus Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp securing $600 million in financing with Scarlett Johanssen »

From indie to "Insurgent" and back again, Miles Teller is everywhere we want to be. The up-and-coming actor is in talks for a starring role in Marc Webb's "The Only Living Boy in New York," which is about a guy who ends up entangled with his father's mistress. Talk about "That Awkward Moment"! Logan Lerman was attached to star way back in 2011, but that never quite happened.
Webb's most recent projects have been "The Amazing Spider-Man" and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," neither of which particularly wowed fans. "Living Boy" would be a return to form for Webb; the writer/director made his name with "(500) Days of Summer," a good-natured indie romcom with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel. (Sony's put a pin in the "Spider-Man" franchise, so Webb's got some time to pursue something a little smaller for the time being.) This would also be an opportunity for Teller to »
