Opening this weekend is yet another adaptation of one of Nicholas Sparks’ romantic novels, The Best of Me, starring James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan. This makes the ninth Sparks novel to find its way to the big screen with another one (The Longest Ride) coming in April. Since 1999, when his first adaptation appeared in theaters, there have been countless Sparks-like stories to flood theaters. Films, such as The Vow and Remember Me, play on many of the author’s most popular tropes that its hard to know whether or not you’re watching an authentic “Nicholas Sparks Film” (Nsf).
Here at VH1 we broke it down question by question to help you through you’re next romantic-drama viewing experience.
1) Does the film star James Marsden? (No pressure. There’s only a 22 percent chance here.)
2) Does the film’s leading man work with his hands? You know, »

Is No. 463 the end of the line for Chuck Lorre’s famously specific vanity card messages?
Since the days of “Dharma & Greg” in the late 1990s, Lorre has penned a new message to run as part of his vanity card slate at the end of every original episode of his many series. On Monday’s editions of “The Big Bang Theory,” the message indicated that Lorre has decided to end this split-second tradition.
We need to have a serious conversation about these vanity cards. Before we start I just want to make clear that you’ve been great. For something like eighteen years you’ve paused your VCRs and DVRs to read them. Maybe you chuckled. Maybe you shrugged. Maybe one of them made a deep, positive impact on your life. Or, more likely, made you want to mail me a letter dusted with anthrax. Doesn’t matter. The important »

It's been more than 16 years since comedian Phil Hartman — star of Saturday Night Live,The Simpsons and NewsRadio — was shot to death in his bed by his wife Brynn, who later turned the gun on herself. His murder sent shockwaves through Hollywood, stunning both those who knew him personally and those who were only familiar with the characters he played on TV.
In the new biography You Might Remember Me: The Life and Times of Phil Hartman, author Mike Thomas delves into the life and death of Hartman, from his humble upbringing in Canada through (an exhaustive examination of) his final, fateful hours. The book also reveals the tumultuous nature of the Hartmans' marriage, offering details that seem chillingly ominous in retrospect.

This '22' singer is 13 again!
Swift showed up on Wednesday's Tonight Show for Jimmy Fallon's Ew! show, where host Sara (no "h" because "h's" are Ew!) invited her mom's best friend's daughter Natalie (Swift) to come down to the basement.
Photos: How Does Taylor Swift Always Look So Cool?!
The geek-chic gal shared with Sara (Fallon) that she collects band-aids, likes to eat apricots and for fun, builds Popsicle castles by herself. As for Natalie's favorite TV show, it isn't Pretty Little Liars. "My mom hasn't let me watch television since Miley Cyrus twerked," she admitted.
Square Enix has announced a new episode style game with a twist is coming soon!
The game is titled Life Is Strange and it will be heading to all current and last generation consoles (Excluding Nintendo) and PC. What is exciting for me is that the studio Dontnod is making the title, they were the studio behind one of my favorite titles, Remember Me. If anything, Remember Me proved that the studio is excellent at story telling, so a episode driven series based on story is perfect!
The story takes place after a student returns to school after a 5 year absence. She meets up with another fellow student and together then uncover the secret behind why a student had vanished at the school. The game has decision making to change the story of the game, but adds a Remember Me style twist. Players have the power to rewind time and »

Dontnod, the development team behind Remember Me, is working on a sophomore effort that seems to borrow cues and ideas from Telltale’s popular The Walking Dead franchise. Titled Life is Strange, the episodic game will place a large focus on creating a strong narrative, wherein choice and consequence will play important roles.
Presenting hand-drawn artwork, Life is Strange tells the tale of Max Caulfield, an Oregon senior who returns after a five-year absence and discovers that a fellow student has gone missing. With her close friend in tow, she must discover what’s behind the girl’s disappearance and surely also make an effort to save her. Details are slim, though, as you’d expect.
“Everybody at Dontnod is excited to be working on such a refreshing title” said Jean-Max Moris, Creative Director at Dontnod Entertainment. “We’re not only crafting the best game we possibly can, we also »

Another year and another incredible Fantasia experience. Though every year has it’s share of gems, 2014 has come out as being particularly strong as far as innovative and daring filmmaking. This is a selection of just five films that impressed me, and I didn’t even include some of the repertory choices like Ghost in the Shell and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre which played to sold out audiences. More than just a genre film festival, Fantasia caters a strong community of passionate film fans and makers.
Fantasia has always been a festival where some of the best films are some of the most unexpected. Running at three weeks long, with well over 200 films playing, it seems inevitable that something will jump out of nowhere to surprise you. Screening before the awful Aux yeux des vivants, Remember Me is a Quebec comedy-horror short film about a young »

Many of you may have heard by now, the rumors floating around about Robert Pattinson being considered to play Dr. Jones in some sort of new Indiana Jones reboot for Disney/Lucasfilm. While our own sources have raised some eyebrows at the idea, this got our staff to discussing how Disney should move forward with the Indiana Jones franchise, and potentially reboot it. Come inside to see our contributors’ thoughts on the subject and add in your own!
First, let’s talk about this rumor. Over the last couple months, a pair of names have been associated with a new take on Indiana Jones, to lead the franchise into a new generation. The first rumor pegged Bradley Cooper as a possibility, and the latest says that Robert Pattinson may be taking over. Neither of these have jived with previous rumors that Harrison Ford desperately wants to do another Indiana Jones film, »

Robert Pattinson provides some unique perspective on his character in a new behind-the-scenes video for his latest film “The Rover.” Co-star Guy Pearce and Director David Michod also provide some commentary. Rob’s character Reynolds, or Rey for short, is one of the more complex and nuanced that he’s played in any film so far. It’s also against character compared with his previous films from “Twilight,” “Bel Ami” and “Remember Me” to “Water for Elephants.” ...Read More »
This vicious little rumor was started by the UK rag Daily Star recently and it has become an internet wildfire. They don’t reveal their source, but the site says that they have an inside man in Disney who says there is a short list of who will be taking over for Harrison Ford and that Robert Pattinson is at the top of the list.
I know that there is going to be a huge backlash that comes with this rumor, and that is expected because he does not fit the archetype for the role. However, if they are going to recast the role, who would you choose? In my opinion, as long as it is not Shia Labeouf or Hayden Christensen the movie will have a shot.
Most will argue that he is unfit for the role since he starred in the Twilight saga. That is an invalid argument »

Cannes audiences have not one but two chances to swoon over Robert Pattinson.
The actor known for his role as Edward Cullen in the blockbuster vampire-franchise “Twilight” arrived on the Croisette in need of a hit. And may in fact leave the festival with new blood coursing through his career.
Pattinson earned some of his best reviews yet for “The Rover,” the Australian action film directed by David Michod that opened out-of-competition on Sunday night. He also had strong buzz going into today’s competition debut of “Maps to the Stars,” a drama directed by David Cronenberg.
“He’s incredibly respectful,” Pattinson told Variety, saying he would love to collaborate with Cronenberg again. The two first worked together on 2012’s “Cosmopolis,” which underperformed at the U.S. box office. His other post-“Twilight” misfires include 2012’s “Bel Ami” and 2010’s “Remember Me.”

Robert Pattinson out of ‘Mission: Blacklist’ movie (photo: Dane DeHaan and Robert Pattinson in ‘Life’) Robert Pattinson and Mission: Blacklist have parted ways. Pattinson, whose name had been attached to the project for two years — since Cannes 2012 — has reportedly dropped out due to scheduling issues. Now, what could those issues be? Well, Robert Pattinson, best known (at least for the time being) as the vampire Edward Cullen in the immensely popular Twilight movie franchise, has no less than two movies opening at Cannes 2014: David Michôd’s thriller The Rover, co-starring Guy Pearce, which will be shown as one of Cannes’ Midnight Screenings, and David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars, also featuring Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Mia Wasikowska, and Carrie Fisher, and which is in the running for the Palme d’Or. There’s more: Robert Pattinson has recently completed work on Anton Corbijn’s Life, with Pattinson as photographer Dennis Stock, »

Nothing says "I'm ready to have fun at spring break" like a grenade stuffed down your shorts — which is exactly how Jonah Hill suits up in the new, out-of-control, undoubtedly Nsfw red-band trailer for 22 Jump Street. The sequel to 2012's 21 Jump Street finds Hill and Channing Tatum teaming up again as undercover cops Schmidt and Jenko (after learning to love and trust each other again during some much-needed couples counseling, as the trailer shows), but instead of infiltrating high school, this time they're going back to college.
