A crippled hero rises to save his city one last time. A team of scientists seeking God in the depths of space instead discover pure evil. A fairy tale princess becomes a warrior and saves herself. A foul-mouthed teddy bear plays the white trash name game. This summer's selection of movie releases were filled with triumphant, terrifying, inspiring and hilarious moments.
The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises obliterated the popular myth that the superhero action genre had run its course. Ted proved that Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane is even funnier when he doesn't have to censor himself. Moonrise Kindom cemented Wes Anderson as the indie king of whimsical, witty comedies with a heart. Each of these movies were fantastic in their own ways, but how do they stack up against each other? Help us rate the Top 10 Best Movies of the 2012 summer movie season.

The 2011 comedy Bridesmaids proved that, not only can female actresses be as funny and gross as their male counterparts, but that audiences would eat it up and come back for more. Well, Bridesmaids 2 may never happen without Kristen Wiig, but the cast of Bachelorette — Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, Lizzy Caplan and Bridesmaids star Rebel Wilson — recently took to the red carpet for the premiere of their R-rated female-driven comedy and they claim that their movie is "even ruder, even raunchier" than Bridesmaids.
Another female-led movie premiered the same night as Bachelorette, but this one trades laughs for screams. Twilight star Ashley Greene headlines writer-director Todd Lincoln's new supernatural horror movie, The Apparition, which centers around a "horrifying apparition" that is actually conjured into existence by parapsychology students trying to prove that belief in the supernatural is enough for it to exist. Greene hasn't had any paranormal frights of her own (that she cared to share, anyway), but she did reveal to our own Jeremy Parsons the scariest experience of her life. Watch the video above to find out what it was. more about Bachelorette and The Apparition >> Posted 08.26.12 by BrentJS

Ashley Greene is most often recognized for playing Alice Cullen in the Twilight movies, recently admitting to CNN that the amount of attention and scrutiny she gets just walking around gets "a little creepy sometimes." However, in her latest project, the supernatural horror movie The Apparition, there isn't a vampire in sight, but that doesn't mean things don't get creepy.
Greene stars alongside Sebastian Stan as a young couple who are haunted by a presence that feeds on fear and follows them wherever they try to run. Like most horror movie characters, the role required a good amount of screaming for Greene, and, while talking to Hollywood Dailies, the actress shared her tips on the proper screaming technique. greene talk life after Twilight; plus watch The Apparitiontrailer >> Posted 08.24.12 by Ryan
The first trailer for writer-director Todd Lincoln's new supernatural horror movie, The Apparition, has been released online and it immediately reminded us of the anonymous quote that opens W.W. Jacobs's classic horror story The Monkey's Paw — "Be careful what you wish for, you may receive it." Though ostensibly a "haunted house" movie, wherein a young couple (Ashley Greene and Sebastian Stan) find their new home plagued by an evil presence and turn to an expert in the supernatural (Tom Felton) for aid, the new wrinkle to that old genre standby is that the "horrifying apparition" that plagues the couple was conjured into being by parapsychology students intent on proving that belief in the supernatural alone is enough for it to exist. watch the trailer >> Posted 05.24.12 by BrentJS

At the London premiere of Robert Pattinson's latest movie Remember Me, Digital Spy spoke with Harry Potter nemesis Draco Malfoy, played by Tom Felton.
