In the best-selling novel "Twilight," 17-year-old Bella Swan and her beloved Edward Cullen live in a Washington city named Forks, surrounded by rain clouds, redwood trees and apparent normalcy. This weekend, Twilighters will find them amongst the sun, palm trees and gleeful insanity of the MTV Movies Awards.
"Twilight" stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Cam Gigandet are the newest additions to the star-studded list of attendees for Sunday's celebration of the best movies past, present and future. The trio will be walking the red carpet, appearing in MTV's official preshow, and rubbing elbows with the likes of Lindsay Lohan and Jack Black throughout the event, marking their first official publicity appearance on behalf of the highly anticipated December 12 movie (click here to submit questions for Kim Stolz to ask the trio!).
And in case the jaws of their die-hard fans aren't already on the ground, get a load of this: MTV News will unveil the very first fully completed scene from "Twilight" during the preshow! Not a teaser trailer, not behind-the-scenes footage, but a full-on completed action scene starring the three actors, exactly as you'll see it on the big screen next winter. OME, indeed.
At the risk of sounding like an infomercial pitchman: "But wait! There's more!" Author Stephenie Meyer graced the MTV studios this week with her presence, and recorded an exclusive message for the "Twilight" fans. Meyer's introduction will play during the preshow, just before her movie's first-look scene.
The 18th annual MTV Movie Awards will once again be held live this year from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal Studios, Hollywood. The "Twilight" cast will be hangin' with stars from such heavily nominated flicks as "Juno" and "Superbad," while they stake their own early claim on the 2009 show.
Be sure to tune in at 7:30 p.m. ET for the preshow festivities. Immediately after the program airs, the exclusive scene will be uploaded in glorious high-definition for fans to watch (and watch, and watch…) at MTV.com and the MTV Movies Blog. And to tide you over until Sunday, be sure to check out the brand-new Part II of "'Twilight' Stars Answer Fans' Burning Questions."
Here's your question of the week, Twilighters: Should Robert, Kristen and Cam rock the Movie Awards red carpet in old-school style? Or should they keep their look casual like Adam Sandler and friends do every year? How do you think Rob and Kristen will compare to the other sexy couples?
The MTV Movie Awards will air live on MTV on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET, with MTV News' "Coming Attractions" preshow kicking the evening off at 7:30 p.m. ET! Meanwhile, stay tuned to the MTV Movies Blog and MovieAwards.MTV.com.
