It seems like it's been forever since Brad Pitt was in a movie — well, one that everyone got a chance to see, anyway. Even though the movie star appeared in "Killing Them Softly" just last fall, "World War Z" marks his first big return to the screen since 2011's "Moneyball," and that return is just one of the big reasons to see the new thriller. Directed by Marc Forster ("Quantum of Solace") from Max Brooks' acclaimed novel, the film follows a retired United Nations employee who's called back into service after a worldwide zombie epidemic breaks out. But whether its incredible source material, zombies or Brad Pitt himself is your particular brand of cinematic catnip, take a look at 5 reasons to see "World War Z."
Of all of the cast members of “The Hangover” who might be returning for its upcoming sequel, “The Hangover 2,” which one would you like to see the most? If you answered Mike Tyson, you’re in luck – because according to director Todd Phillips, the former champ is as interested in being seen again on the silver screen as you are in seeing him. “I’ve got to find something for him because he’s been texting me,” Phillips said. “I’ve got to figure it out. We’re going to find something for Mike.”
Check out the clip below to watch Phillips’ comments about Tyson’s return. Additionally, the director talks about the challenges of crafting a successful sequel, and offers a few hints about what the future film will focus on.
Tune in to the 2010 MTV Movie Awards tonight at 9/8c to see how well “The Hangover” fares against its cinematic competition. Also, don't miss the live red-carpet coverage, exclusive movie clips and fist-pumping action on MTV News' "Jersey Shore Blow-Out at the MTV Movie Awards," airing live beginning at 8/7.
Sunday night at the MTV Movie Awards, we will decide who is 2010’s biggest Global Superstar – but who gets it is decided by you, the fans. Is “Twilight" heartthrob Robert Pattinson most deserving of the award? Or do co-stars Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner overshadow him? Or has Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe, cast a spell on worldwide audiences?
Of course, there’s also Johnny Depp, who enchanted audiences with oddball performances and unforgettable characters long before Radcliffe waved his first wand or the “Twilight” cast took its first bite out of the international box office. But will age come before beauty? Check out a collection of clips of our nominees below and make sure to tune in Sunday at 9/8c to find out who won!
As awesome as fight scenes often look on film, much less when they're intense enough to earn a nomination for Best Fight at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, it turns out that they're not always as exciting on set as they ending up looking on the silver screen. Describing the process of putting together his scuffle with Jake Abel in "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief," Percy Jackson himself, Logan Lerman explained that shooting the scene was occasionally a little uncomfortable.
"It was awkward," Lerman admitted in an interview with MTV News."I felt really stupid doing it. You've got to put your mind outside of the room and embarrass yourself a little bit and feel comfortable to be in the moment." Read More...
Quick, who’s the funniest of these five: Ben Stiller, Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds, Sandra Bullock or Zach Galifianakis? If it took you less than a second to answer that question, then you need to vote for your choice ASAP, before the 2010 MTV Movie Awards air this Sunday at 9/8c.
Given the fact that he’s by far the goofiest, and not the least of which because we think beards are funny, Galifianakis seems like a frontrunner thanks to his unforgettably fearless performance as the man-child Alan in “The Hangover.” But his co-star Bradley Cooper may have just enough charm to steal away Galifianakis’ golden popcorn, or Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds’ contentious chemistry in "The Proposal" may have just enough fire to burn their competition. Then again, there’s Ben Stiller, an MTV Movie Awards favorite, who may come in from left field and sweep the category after squaring off against historical figures in "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian."
