Smart money says Zachary Quinto will live long and prosper as Spock for many a "Star Trek" movie to come. But failing his role as the world's most famous Vulcan (well, second to Leonard Nimoy), I think he'd do a pretty solid job as Robert Downey Jr.'s successor to the "Iron Man" franchise."

In the set photo seen above, Quinto is armored head-to-toe in a big, red metal suit that wouldn't be out of place in Tony Stark's wardrobe. But Quinto isn't auditioning for a role in the hugely popular Marvel franchise. Instead, it's him in character for "Star Trek 2," snapped on the set in what's described as a stunt scene involving a volcano.
If "Hunger Games" proved anything with its enormous opening at the box office, it's this: people love Jennifer Lawrence. The erstwhile Katniss Everdeen won't pick up the bow and arrow again until "Catching Fire" in 2013, but you'll be able to get another dose of the Oscar-nominated actress much sooner than that.
Lawrence's new horror film, "House at the End of the Street," premieres on September 21. Way ahead of that, MTV is debuting a teaser of the first "House" trailer tonight (March 28) during the 8 p.m. hour -- in other words, you'll want to tune into tonight's episode of "The Challenge: Battle of the Exes" to get your first look at Lawrence's new thriller!
Then, right here on MTV Movies Blog tomorrow morning (March 29) at 8 a.m. ET, we'll have the exclusive first look at the full trailer. That's a lot of Lawrence!
Abraham Lincoln driving stakes through vampire hearts and plowing axes through exploding trees. If there's something about this concept that doesn't work for you, you should probably look away now. For the rest of you blood-thirsty movie fans, you'll be very happy to check out the first "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" teaser trailer right here, right now!
Benjamin Walker plays Honest Abe, with a very notable twist: in this revised history, Lincoln spent just as much time slaying vamps as he did signing documents and addressing the people of the United States. Check out the incredibly fun "Abraham Lincoln" trailer in the video below.
Michael Bay is directing "Transformers 4," as MTV News exclusively reported on Monday (February 13). The next outing in the robots-in-disguise franchise won't make its way to theaters until the summer of 2014, however, leaving plenty of time for Bay to figure out the particulars of his developing reboot.
That also gives us plenty of time to speculate on the story for "Transformers 4." With that in mind, here are a few story ideas and casting suggestions for Bay and company to consider!
Nine films are nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards this year, begging the question: who deserved a tenth spot on that list? Oscars 2012: 10 Spot answers that question, as the MTV Movies team highlights some of 2011's greatest films and argues why they deserved a nod as the tenth Best Picture nominee.
If there's a movie that made you laugh harder and more consistently in 2011 than "Bridesmaids," I'd certainly love to hear about it. For my money, no such film exists: the Kristen Wiig comedy was an instant classic with all the guffaws and gross-out jokes seen in the "Hangover" movies, but with considerably less bro-humor and a whole lot more brains.
Holy Westeros, that's a lot of "Game of Thrones" goodness!
HBO has released 17 new stills ahead of the second season premiere of "Thrones," airing on April 1. In the new batch of photos, you'll get acquainted with newcomers Stannis Baratheon, Melisandre of Asshai, Davos Seaworth and more. You'll also see familiar faces like Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen and the Imp Tyrion Lannister.
Check out the whole gallery by clicking on Dany's exhausted face below, and check out our rundown of all the new "Game of Thrones" characters while you're at it!
I enjoy "The Phantom Menace." I know I'm in a small club of people who don't think the first entry in the "Star Wars" prequel trilogy is wholesale trash. And I know it's an unpopular group to be a part of, but I stand by my membership. Sure, the first two hours are pretty much garbage, but then you get duel of the fates! Darth Maul with a double-edged lightsaber! It's so wonderful!
But Simon Pegg disagrees. He thinks there's nothing whatsoever to enjoy about "Phantom Menace." In the latest episode of After Hours, he does his best Red Letter Media impression and tears the 1999 "Star Wars" movie to shreds in a quick two-minute assault. It's hard to disagree with him on any of his points, really. But no amount of sense or logic will ever convince me that duel of the fates isn't awesome.
Hear all about Pegg's "Phantom Menace" vendetta in this week's After Hours.
Trailers, trailers and more trailers — that's the theme of the week in movie land, it seems, and also the main focus on the newest episode of Talk Nerdy!
This week, we're joined by MTV News' hip hop senior writer Rob Markman as we dive into the "Bourne Legacy" trailer, the "Amazing Spider-Man" trailer and even assemble "The Avengers" for a spell. Plus, what's new in theaters this weekend? Lots and lots, including "Safe House," "Journey 2" and a movie that's bound to score points with your date of choice... and no, that movie probably isn't "The Phantom Menace 3D." Get the rundown on all of that and more in this week's Talk Nerdy, viewable in the player below.
There was never just one — you just didn't know that the other one was played by Jeremy Renner!
Well, now you do, especially with the release of the first teaser trailer for "The Bourne Legacy." Renner makes his entry into the spy drama franchise following the exit of long time lead Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass, but Jason Bourne he is not: this is Aaron Cross, a new breed of amnesiac assassin who has his own share of grudges to make right.
Spider-Man does whatever a spider can, and that apparently includes spinning amazing trailers in addition to amazing webs. The second trailer for "The Amazing Spider-Man" swung online early Tuesday morning (February 7), bringing fans their best look yet at Andrew Garfield's take on Peter Parker. If you ever doubted his ability to crack wise and have fun while busting bad guy butt, doubt no more—but make no mistake, there is a sense of realism and darkness here that was not present in the Sam Raimi era of "Spider-Man." Certainly an intriguing trailer, even if Lizard still looks just okay.
Check out the trailer below, and tune into MTV Splash Page throughout the week for plenty more "Spider-Man" updates!
