Here at ET, we're obsessed with a lot of things -- and for the week of June 12 to June 16, this is what we're most excited about:
Why We're Obsessed With 'Rough Night'
The film is already being compared to The Hangover -- minus Alan's debauchery -- centering around a bachelorette party weekend that goes awry when a male stripper ends up dead in the beach house that Jess (Scarlett Johansson) and her friends -- played by Kate McKinnon, Zoe Kravitz, Jillian Bell and Ilana Glazer -- are staying at in Miami. While the movie doesn't open with all the women hungover, trying to retrace their steps, it does, however, highlight what happens when a wild bachelorette weekend takes some hilariously unexpected turns, ultimately bringing this group of gals closer together when it matters most. ET caught up with Johansson earlier this year, where the actress spoke candidly about the comedy. "It's wrong in all the right kind of ways," she said.

Why We're Obsessed With '47 Meters Down'
Fresh of the breakout success of NBC's This Is Us, Mandy Moore is getting a biteful in this survival horror flick! 47 Meters Down stars Moore as a woman vacationing in Mexico with her sister, Kate (Claire Holt), when a shark-diving excursion goes nightmarishly wrong and they find themselves stuck in a cage with a dwindling supply of oxygen in shark-infested waters. When ET caught up with two actresses, they shared behind-the-scenes secrets to making this movie. "We spent a solid eight weeks, eight hours a day underwater," Moore said of their whopping 320 hours. "I don't think either of us were really prepared for surfacing at lunch time and being that bone tired.” While these two received substantial scuba training, they’re not officially scuba-certified yet. "We got 'Hollywood certified,'" the actress joked.

Why We're Obsessed With Lorde's Album, 'Melodrama'
Lets praise Lorde! It's been four years since the 20-year-old singer-songwriter released her debut album, Pure Heroine, and the wait was worth it. In March, the pop prodigy dropped the lead single, "Green Light," off her highly anticipated sophomore album, Melodrama, followed by the heartfelt piano ballad "Liability." As the third track release (and power counterpart) to both these singles, "Perfect Places" offers a darker take on the teenage party circuit. "Everything written about on the album, give or take a couple of lines, all took place in New Zealand, is about me and my friends," the singer said in a recent Rolling Stone interview. We're not the only ones in love with the singles. Taylor Swift fangirled over "Green Light," sharing a sweet Instagram message for her girl squad member.

Why We're Obsessed With 'The Great British Baking Show'
Are you ready for some tasty treats this summer? PBS's The Great British Baking Show is back for a fourth season, following the trials and tribulations of passionate amateur bakers whose goal is to be named the U.K.'s best. Each week, the bakers tackle a different skill, the difficulty of which come in three categories: a Signature Bake, to test the contestants’ creative flair and baking ability; a Technical Bake, in which challengers receive basic recipes with ingredient lists and minimal instruction; and the Showstopper Bake, designed to display depth of skill and talent. The show's eclectic judges include Mary Berry, a leading British cookbook writer, and Paul Hollywood, a top artisan baker. Serving as hosts and comic foils are Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc. But alas, this is the final season for Berry, Perks and Geidroyc, who all left after the show was sold to another U.K. network -- so the tarts are especially bittersweet. If you haven't experienced the magic of this show, you're truly missing out.
The Great British Baking Show premieres Friday, June 16.
Why We're Obsessed With 'Score: A Film Music Documentary'
They score, we listen. A film composer is a musical scientist, garnering powerful reactions to some of our favorite films in history, but what makes a film score unforgettable? Elite composers Hans Zimmer, Danny Elfman, John Williams and Trent Reznor have come together to give viewers a peek at how they developed some of Hollywood's most iconic scores, including the James Bond franchise, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Titanic and The Social Network. The documentary contains interviews from dozens of fellow film composers, turning the spotlight on the creative struggles that make up a major motion picture score and the creative secrecy of the world's most widely known music genre.
