Anyways, if you love movies and are in the market for some new wallpapers, look no further. To save you the hassle, I went out to find a selection of awesome desktop backgrounds from the movies for you. You can navigate directly to the source and download the wallpaper or browse the respective page for more. Enjoy!
Up In The Air @ Movie Wallpapers
Let’s start with something pretty. Movie Wallpapers is one of the few pages that has a very pleasing design and is also easy to navigate. Unfortunately, it doesn’t feature the latest movies. Can’t have it all, right?

The Expendables @ FM-TW

So have a look if you dare.
Kites @ Now Running (Hindi)
Few sites feature foreign movies. Hasn’t Bollywood gone mainstream, yet? At Now Running you can select from Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, or Kannada movies. These are all languages spoken in India by the way. There is an English section, too, but it’s empty.

Twilight @ Twilight Guide
Vampires will never go out of fashion. So I guess we will have to put up with Twilight for a little longer. This site has some stunning wallpapers from the series and the movies. Please forgive me if I didn’t pick the most recent one.
