Starting out as a Korean pop sensation, Rain has quickly taken the world by storm over the past two years, first with his appearance in "Speed Racer" and most recently with his starring role in the action-packed "Ninja Assassin." It's his combined awesomeness that's gotten him nominated for "Biggest Badass Star" at this year's MTV Movie Awards, and Rain is heading to the States to attend the big show.
We've already shown you where stars like Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Betty White are sitting, but where exactly is Rain seated in the Gibson Amphitheatre? We took a camera to find out, so click here or on the photo below to see.
Quick, who would win in a fight between Johnny Depp and Ronnie from "Jersey Shore"? Aziz Ansari is hoping we'll find out when he hosts the 2010 MTV Movie Awards this Sunday at 9/8c. And he thinks the contrast between the two is what makes the show so special. "There's the biggest movie stars in the world and then people that are famous for saying 'bro' a lot," Aziz said. "I mean, those people are not going to be at other awards shows. Like Ronnie from 'Jersey Shore,' he's not going to be at the Oscars."
Aziz's other great hope? "How bout this time, Tom Hanks whips his balls out? Just onstage, whips it out there," he suggested. "That would be pretty crazy, right? That would get on Twitter!" Check out his full thoughts in the video below, and then click here for more of our behind-the-scenes interviews.
Sitting next to Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart may have its charms, but the best seat at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards is a couple of aisles back. So if you were the lucky person sitting between Jackie Chan (!) and Betty White (!) what conversations would you have with them? Chime in below.

Like most of us, if I'm somewhere cool or see something neat, I'll snap a photo with my cell phone and upload it to my Facebook page. And that's exactly what I'm doing here on the Universal Studios lot as we prepare for the 2010 MTV Movie Awards. But since chances are we're not Facebook friends (nothing personal), I thought it'd be fun to post some of what I've taken here on the Movies Blog. In the photos below, you'll see inside the Gibson Amphitheatre as they build the stage, to the inside of the MTV News production office and even our fancy golf carts. Hope you enjoy.

When we caught up with Bradley Cooper at "The A-Team" premiere last night, the actor made no bones about being squarely in the corner of his "Hangover" co-star Zach Galifianakis, who finds himself nominated for "Best Breakout Star" at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards. "No one's tougher than Zach Galifianakis ... so I don't even try to even compare anybody," Cooper told us.
"The Hangover" was the comedian's biggest role to date, after a string of background appearances in films like "Below" and "Into the Wild." Since "Hangover" became the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all time, however, Galifianakis has become a hot ticket and will shortly be seen in films like the Paul Rudd/ Steve Carell-starring "Dinner for Schmucks," as well as a "Hangover" sequel.
Zach is up against some tough competition in the category, which includes names like Anna Kendrick and Chris Pine. Have your own fave? Then head on over to the Movie Awards site to cast your vote now.
The last time MTV's Josh Horowitz spent time with Will Ferrell, it involved a 12-foot python and plenty of touching (of both the snake and Josh). This time when he met up with Ferrell and his "Other Guys" co-star Mark Wahlberg, the insanity picked up right where it left off. In the video below, watch Mark reach back to his rapping days with more swearing than you've probably ever heard in your life, and if you enjoy seeing MTV correspondents get physically pummeled, well it has that too. Oh, and plenty of "Jersey Shore" talk.
Catch Will and Mark as they present at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards this Sunday at 9/8c, with our red carpet pre-show beginning at 8.
It's been over a year since I last rolled out clips from "Mystery Team," an adventure-comedy from the minds at Derrick Comedy (whose online projects have apparently been streamed over 100 million times). The film stars three high school friends who are determined to turn their childhood-era detective agency into a real, full-blown adult operation. The flick played well at Sundance (where we caught up with the cast) and is now dropping on DVD come May 25, along with digital download, OnDemand and on video game consoles. Check out below for another exclusive look at the flick.
We saw with Liam Neeson's brilliant "Taken" that leading men over 50 can still kick some serious ass, and such was the case with Mel Gibson's bow in "Edge of Darkness," which saw the actor investigating the death of his character's daughter, only to uncover a web of deceit and wacky conspiracies. Well now the action-thriller is hitting store shelves and to celebrate, we've got a featurette from the DVD and Blu-ray's special features. In it, Gibson and director Martin Campbell ("Casino Royale," the upcoming "Green Lantern") take you inside the method of their madness.
You don't get more touchy a subject matter than the murder of a young child, but that's exactly what Peter Jackson was up against when he began the process of adapting the bestselling novel "The Lovely Bones." So it's particularly interesting then to hear his thoughts as he's in the middle of shooting a crucial scene in the film, that of Mark Wahlberg feverishly searching for his daughter. That's just what we have in the clip below from the special features of the DVD and Blu-ray, which has now hit store shelves.
