As previously mentioned, given MTV's long lineage with photo booths, we set up our very own here at Sundance where the biggest celebs around are coming through our studio. We already gave you Jon Hamm and Amanda Peet, and now Boston's favorite son Ben Affleck, in town for his new film "The Company Men," is gracing us with his presence (with co-star Rosemarie DeWitt peeking over his shoulder).

Check out his contribution below, and then click here or on the photo to browse the rest of our ever-growing Sundance Photo Booth.

FROM HOLLYWOOD CRUSH: Kristen Stewart's punk role in "The Runaways" isn't her only showing at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. She's also appearing in "Welcome to the Rileys," which sees the "Twilight" star as a troubled young stripper named Mallory who becomes a surrogate daughter to a grieving father played by "Sopranos" kingpin James Gandolfini. So naturally, we were curious whether Stewart thought her darker turn will surprise or shock her Twilighter fanbase.

As it turns out, Stewart says the most shocking part of her role is that it's really not that shocking.

If you're even a casual observer of viral videos, you've probably seen James Franco and Mila Kunis' hilarious take on the cast of MTV's "The Hills." So naturally, with "Jersey Shore" now firmly entrenched in the pop culture zeitgeist, we were curious whether Franco would next turn his attention to the antics of Snooki and friends.

While admitting he has yet to catch an episode, Franco's curiosity has been piqued. Read More...

Award-winning filmmaker Lynn Shelton made waves last year at Sundance with her...shall we say unique bromance movie "Humpday." Now she's back as director of MTV's "$5 Cover" webisode series, which follows the trials and tribulations of thirteen Seattle bands.

Given Shelton's Seattle roots and her obvious commitment to rock and roll, we wanted to know how the town's music scene has evolved since it's famous days as the epicenter of the '90s grunge movement. Apparently it's changed a lot.

"It's a whole new landscape," says Shelton, saying the level of interest of record company scouts to Seattle in the '90s created a sort of in-it-for-the-money music mill. But now it's different. "The people that I've been working with -- and I know there are tons more -- are really doing it for the love of music. They're just so passionate about it." Read More...

Back in the spring, we revealed that Jack Black will be "stirring things up" in the upcoming big-budget adaptation of the classic fable "Gulliver's Travels." Well, now we can add an additional trait to Black's character...dancer.

That's right, at the Sundance Film Festival "Gulliver's Travels" co-star Amanda Peet dished on her upcoming role as Black's editor (and love interest) who follows him after he doesn't return from an assignment. While clearly thrilled with playing "a giant," Peet was most excited about a little on-set song-and-dance.

"I saw Jack Black dancing in playback. He gets to sing and dance and that was one of the great joys of my life," Peet exclaimed to MTV News. Read More...

There's probably not a nicer man at Sundance than Jon Hamm, the "Mad Men" actor who stars in "Howl" alongside James Franco. So when Don Draper himself graced us with his presence at this year's fest, we just had to get him into our ever-burgeoning Photo Booth gallery. Check out the result below, and then click here for more of our candid celebrity self-portraits.

Actresses Amanda Peet and Rebecca, who co-star in the Sundance flick "Please Give," and who decided to ham it up for the camera with wacky filters.

Peter Jackson was betting on black when he decided to adapt the complex supernatural novel, "The Lovely Bones." Thankfully for him, it seems to have impressed moviegoers. We set upon a local theater to hear from the people themselves, and returned with the following video.

"The Lovely Bones" is in theaters now.

Ricky Gervais in 'The Invention of Lying'Given the amount of plugs, if you found yourself watching the Golden Globes on Sunday then you'd know that host Ricky Gervais' comedy "The Invention of Lying" was coming to home video today. The film places Gervais in an alternate reality where everyone always tells the truth, giving him a considerable edge when he becomes the first person in the world "invent" the concept of fibbing. The rom-com comes to DVD and Blu-ray with a few extras including a making-of featurette, deleted scenes, and a mini-doc following Karl Pilkington from Gervais' wildly popular podcast series. It's rather odd that a commentary track isn't one of the extras; you'd think it'd be a natural addition given Gervais also co-wrote the pic. But alas...

On the action side, we have Gerard Butler's "Gamer," which is basically a cross between "Gladiator" and "The Running Man." The film takes place in a dystopian future where nerds control beefy human avatars in a massively multiplayer online game. The film performed modestly at the box office, and comes to DVD and Blu-ray with a considerable amount of extras. Those include a feature-length commentary track, a three-part behind-the-scenes doc about the making of the film, and an interesting (for tech hounds) look at the groundbreaking digital RedOne camera used for the flick.

It's one of the biggest questions in Hollywood. Can James Cameron's blockbuster sci-fi epic overtake the number one spot for highest-grossing film of all time, toppling the current champ, which is coincidentally another James Cameron film.

That's right, for thirteen years "Titanic" has remained king of the mountain, but with "Avatar" decimating the box office it seems only a matter of time until it dethrones Cameron's seafaring drama. We've all heard the experts speculating, but what does the man himself think? When we caught up with him at the Critics' Choice Awards, we asked him just that.

Back in early December, Cameron was fully cautious on the matter. "I don't think it's realistic to try and topple 'Titanic' off its perch," he told us then. But now the legendary filmmaker is singing a different song. Read More...
