Ricky Gervais' David Brent is getting his own movie

Three seasons and fourteen episodes just isn't enough to contain a personality like David Brent's from "The Office."

The laughably awful boss, whom Ricky Gervais played on the original, U.K. version of "The Office," is now getting his own movie.

Why everyone's talking about Michael Keaton's 'Birdman'

Put Michael Keaton in a pair of tighty-whities and cast him as the star of a meta movie directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu, and you could have the formula for a Keaton comeback.

The 62-year-old actor's career hasn't exactly been a string of hits since he portrayed Batman more than 20 years ago - though, in his defense, he's done well with his voice roles - but after getting a look at the extended international trailer for his October release, "Birdman," suddenly everyone's keeping an eye on Keaton.

'When Harry Met Sally' turns 25

Twenty-five years later, we'd still really like to have what she's having.

On Monday, the iconic romantic comedy turned 25 years young, marking the anniversary of its premiere on July 14, 1989.

In the two-and-a-half decades since, we've all turned to "When Harry Met Sally" when asking eternal questions about love, friendship and where the two meet.

Watch: New trailers for 'Hunger Games,' 'Exodus'

The new teaser trailer for "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I" will give you chills in the best way.

The last time we got a clip for the anticipated fall release, we saw a brainwashed Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) standing uncomfortably but solemnly next to Donald Sutherland's President Snow, who was warning the people of Panem that everyone needed to stick together ... or else.

But in the new trailer, someone else gets to have the last word.

'Fast & Furious 7' gets new release date

'Fast & Furious 7' gets new release date

But before you freak out, this is good news: "Fast & Furious 7" is coming out even faster.

Instead of arriving on April 10, 2015, the seventh installment of the "Fast" franchise will now bow on April 3, Variety reports.

The speculation is that Universal moved the release date up a week to allow more time for an international run.

"Fast 7" was initially supposed to open during 2014's summer season, but that changed after the death of franchise star Paul Walker last fall. The theory is that Universal's planning to "retire" Walker's character, Brian O'Conner - not kill him off.
