Sadly, we can’t all be students of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, but we do get to roam the halls with Mean Girls, cheerleaders, poetry lovers, and teens who are likely to burst into song and dance numbers at any given moment. And that new kid in class? Better take a closer look because you never know if they’re an adult on a secret mission to get all the dirt on today’s high school students.

Michael Clarke Duncan, the hulking, prolific character actor whose dozens of films included an Oscar-nominated performance as a death row inmate in The Green Mile and such other box office hits as Armageddon, Planet of the Apes and Kung Fu Panda, is dead at age 54.
Clarke died Monday morning at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he was being treated for a heart attack, said his fiancee, Reverend Omarosa Manigault, in a statement released by publicist Joy Fehily.
The muscular, 6-foot-4 Duncan, a former bodyguard who turned to acting in his 30s, "suffered a myocardial infarction on July 13 and never fully recovered," the statement said. "Manigault is grateful for all of your prayers and asks for privacy at this time. Celebrations of his life, both private and public, will be announced at a later date."

It's been delayed a few times now but Tommy Wirkola's Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters is set to hit theatres this January and the first trailer shows Jeremy Renner as Hansel, confidently holding his own when it comes to bows, arrows, medieval guns and whatever other weaponry skills he's picked up since doing The Avengers and The Bourne Legacy, and brunette stunner Gemma Arterton head-butting with abandon as his sister Gretel, who, as the opening voice-over tells us about the duo, have a bit of a past.
The tone of the action-fantasy flick is decidedly tongue-in-cheek as the siblings are reluctantly recruited by a local villager (Peter Stormare) to ward off the witches that have been snatching up their young'uns and Hansel and Gretel get to display their knack for hunting down those nasty creatures...until they realize something even more sinister is afoot.
The 3D flick, which also stars Famke Jenssen and Thomas Mann, hits theatres January 11, 2013. Get ready for an updated, bloody, re-imagined kids' tale with the trailer for Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, after the jump.
Dashing and dedicated thesp Michael Fassbender is good at giving his all and keeping things super-serious with stellar work in Shame, Hunger, Inglorious Basterds and Fish Tank but the idea of him lightening up a bit and going for a comedy is oh-so-good news and the fact that he will have a co-star in dapper Domhnall Gleeson (son of Brendan and part of the Harry Potter alum) makes it pretty near amazing.
Director Lenny Abrahamson has pulled together these two men for Frank, a humourous look at a young, struggling musician named Jon (Gleeson) who, according to the Hollywood Reporter, "discovers he's bitten off more than he can chew when he joins an eccentric pop band led by the mysterious and enigmatic Frank (Fassbender)."
It's early September and as temperatures cool down the city of Toronto is getting ready to sizzle thanks to an influx of A-listers coming to town during the Toronto International Film Festival.
Now in its 37th year, TIFF is not only an occasion to spot your celeb crush milling around the tony streets of bougie Yorkville or waiting in line for Starbucks JUST LIKE YOU, it's a time for cinephiles to make a list and check it twice as they get to sample the year's forthcoming slate of festival-worthy movies before they hit the theatre circuit.
And for those who love, love movies, like us, it's a reason to rejoice, get creative about time management, say adieu to sleep and make tough choices about which movies are must-watch and which can wait for a few months. We know it's hard.
If you're lucky enough to be in Toronto during the fest, running September 6 to 16, or if you'd like to get excited now for what movies will be worthy of your attention in the coming months, this list of our TIFF 2012 PICKS is for you. (Okay, it's for everyone.)
Either way, get our TIFF PICKS after the jump and be sure to add your own choices of this year's must-see movies.
