The Biggest Monster Movie of the Year — the Godzilla reboot — hit theaters today. And if you end up loving the Gareth Edwards-directed flick, you didn’t just enjoy the updated monster mash; you have officially become Joe Brody-levels of obsessed.

Luckily, there’s a book that documents the making of the  mayhem. Godzilla: The Art of Destruction, out now from Insight Editions, is packed with previously unseen art that details the film’s creative process. There are concept pieces, storyboards, and sketches, as well as interviews with Edwards and the cast, including Bryan Cranston and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. The companion book also includes a 12-page “Monster Gatefold” and Godzilla theatrical poster.

Can’t wait to get your hands on a copy? We’ve got three exclusive spreads from The Art of Destruction, as well as two bonus images that should tide you over — at least until you convince someone to see Godzilla with you for a third time. (Click the spreads for a closer look.) READ FULL STORY

'Veronica Mars' cast sums up the movie in one word ... including a deadly spoiler (or not) -- VIDEO

On the set of the Entertainment Weekly cover shoot for the Veronica Mars movie, the cast seemed to really enjoy one of the many reunions they’ll have thanks to their Kickstarter-funded film. Ryan Hansen (Dick) joked about making out with fans who came to the set. Chris Lowell (Piz) explained why he always knew a Mars movie would happen. And creator Rob Thomas blurted out one hell of a spoiler.

“Veronica dies,” the straight-faced Thomas said when asked to sum up the movie in one word. Not only did he break the single-word rule, but he blew our minds — OK, not really. He already told us last week that there’s a future to the VM franchise beyond the March 14 movie, and clearly that future needs to include the title character herself.

Watch our behind-the-scenes video below, which also includes Krysten Ritter (Gia), Tina Majorino (Mac), Percy Daggs III (Wallace), Francis Capra (Weevil), and Enrico Colantoni (Keith) on set. For some time with LoVe — Kristen Bell and Jason Dohring — check out our Facebook-exclusive video; you have to “like” our page to watch. READ FULL STORY

Best of 2013 (Behind the Scenes): The stars of 'The Lizzie Bennet Diaries' on filming the Emmy-winning web series

It is a truth universally acknowledged… that Jane Austen’s novels will never stop being reimagined, readapted, or reworked. But among the countless parodies, books, and films that are based on Pride and Prejudice, only “The Lizzie Bennet Diaries” managed to make it a web-based, immersive experience. The web series, a modern adaptation co-created by Bernie Su and Hank Green, premiered in 2012 and ended this year after 100 episodes, finishing off a stellar 2013 by winning a Creative Arts Emmy.

At the center of the series were the three — not five, as in the original — Bennet sisters: Jane, Lizzie, and Lydia. Played by Laura Spencer, Ashley Clements, and Mary Kate Wiles, respectively, the trio carried the series from the main “vlog” hosted by Lizzie, to spinoffs by Wiles’ Lydia Bennet, as well as a main “Pemberley Digital” channel, which now hosts “Emma Approved,” the series based off of — you guessed it! — Emma.

The three actresses talked to EW about filming their favorite videos, their final days on set, and what it was like realizing just how many viewers they reached. READ FULL STORY
