From Monday through Thursday this week, we're doing a special edition of the Moviefone Minute. Our Top 5's! Today's topic? TV shows that should have their own films.

Moviefone Minute: Mike Myers as Pepe Le Pew and Johnny Depp Helps a Little Girl Mutiny

Posted By Jenna Busch on October 10, 2010
You remember Pepe Le Pew, don't you? The Looney Tunes skunk with the French accent who stalked a poor kitty cat named Penelope. Well, Mike Meyers is about to take on the fragrant role in a new live action/CGI film. Sacre bleu! (Source: Vulture) Johnny Depp just did what I think might be the coolest movie promotion of all time. The star of 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' just answe...

Moviefone Minute: Shia Promises Us 'Transformers 3' Will Deliver and Yet Another Version of 'Avatar'

Posted By Jenna Busch on October 10, 2010
It's really refreshing to hear honesty in Hollywood. It's also very rare. Shia LaBeouf has been pretty forthcoming about his opinions of some of his films. His comments about the last 'Indiana Jones' film weren't exactly flattering. And he wasn't all that nice about 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.' Really, how could he have been. My only positive comment about that film was that Megan Fox ha...

It's the one remake no one seems to be complaining about. And if my e-mail inbox is to be believed, you're certainly upset about all the others. 'Superman' has finally found its director! And in my humble opinion, it's a fantastic choice. I imagine not all of you agree. After you watch the video, give me a shout at @jennabusch on Twitter or e-mail me at I'd love to know your t...

Drew Struzan has done all of my favorite movie posters. 'Star Wars: The Phantom Menace,' 'E.T.,' 'Back to the Future,' 'Hook,' and about a zillion more. He's just released a book called, 'The Art of Drew Struzan' with never before seen pictures that chronicle the process of creating the art that defines the movies. He also has some of the best stories I've ever heard about behind the scenes Hollyw...

Moviefone Minute: 'Secretariat' Premiere

Posted By Jenna Busch on October 10, 2010
Last night I hit the El Capitan theater in Hollywood for the premiere of the new Disney film, 'Secretariat.' Diane Lane stars as Penny Chenery, the housewife who braved setback after setback and produced the 1973 Triple Crown winning horse that still holds the speed record. I got a chance to chat with Lane, John Malkovich, James Cromwell and more. And we even got a chance to see the horse who w...

Moviefone Minute: October Movie Preview

Posted By Jenna Busch on September 09, 2010
October has got some pretty juicy movie offerings. We've got young vampires in love ... and believe me, I'm not talking about another 'Twilight' here. There are CIA agents coming out of retirement, famous horses and the afterlife. It's a pretty mixed bag, but there are some stellar choices you definitely shouldn't miss. One of these is 'The Social Network.' I saw this film and if it isn't nomin...

Moviefone Minute: New 'Hobbit' Woes and a New 'Harry Potter' Book? Maybe?

Posted By Jenna Busch on September 09, 2010
You have to feel bad for the people involved with the upcoming 'Hobbit' films. They just can't seem to catch a break, what with money troubles and talent leaving or threatening to leave the project. Now, there's a union boycott, and that boycott may keep the film from being shot in New Zealand. I'll give you all the details in today's video. (Source: Variety) Meanwhile, could it be true? Is the...

Posted By Jenna Busch on September 09, 2010
'Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps' opens today and we're finally getting a chance to see what would have happened to ole Gordon 'greed is good' Gekko 23 years later. And with the news that we might also get a chance to see what happened to our old pals from 'Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure' in another sequel, I started thinking about what other '80s characters I'd like to catch up with.

Moviefone Minute: 'You Again' Red Carpet

Posted By Jenna Busch on September 09, 2010
I love Betty White. Well, me and the rest of the universe. Seriously, she's bigger than Justin Bieber! I just hit the red carpet for the Hollywood premiere of her new film 'You Again' last night and chatted with her co-stars about the "Betty White effect" -- and I may have incited a riot! Jamie Lee Curtis and Sigourney Weaver came wearing the same dress and I called them out on it. Of course they ...

Posted By Jenna Busch on September 09, 2010
Fantastic Fest, the coolest genre film festival ever, begins tomorrow at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas, and, sadly, I can't be there! Still, there are some pretty fantastic offerings there this year, including the just-announced closing film, '13 Assassins.' There will be screenings, debates, boxing matches and people in boxes. Not exactly a typical film fest, but there you have it. I w...

Posted By Jenna Busch on September 09, 2010
Director Casey Affleck just admitted that furry-faced Joaquin Phoenix faked it all for his documentary 'I'm Still Here.' Now, I've seen the film and I'm not so sure. I'll give you all the details and my opinion on the matter. I'm just relieved that we won't have to endure any more of his rapping. Have you seen it? Do you believe it? Will you ever be able to take him seriously again? Send me your t...

Posted By Jenna Busch on September 09, 2010
A dream team is assembling for Martin Scorsese's new gangster film, 'The Irishman.' Oh, go ahead. Try and guess who might be joining him. I'd be shocked if you don't get it right.

Moviefone Minute: 'Easy A' Premiere

Posted By Jenna Busch on September 09, 2010
Like I said in yesterday's show, I love high school movies. And 'Easy A' deserves the buzz it's been getting. Not only that, but it pays homage to all the 80's movies I love. I hit the red carpet for the premiere last night and I got some info in the references, the fake sex scene and a surprise character...believe me, I had no idea who he was playing. 'Easy A' opens this Friday. And don't forg...

I'm hitting the red carpet for the upcoming film 'Easy A' tonight (check out the coverage tomorrow) and it made my think of my favorites. So here they are. My top 5 unbelievably awesome high school movies. I think it's time to update my N...

Moviefone Minute: 'Lord of the Rings' Blu-ray Giveaway and 'Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters' Casting

Posted By Jenna Busch on September 09, 2010
We've got some casting news for 'Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters,' which takes a look at fairy tale favorites Hansel and Gretel -- 15 years later, all grown up (with jobs, even!). The producers have taken what could have just been a goofy title and classed it up with the actors they've added. For the record, wouldn't a candy house have a serious ant problem? Well, I suppose the whole "being a wit...
