"Contagion" is infecting moviegoers nationwide, and a box office-winning weekend isn't the only result of its release. Now that it's been unleashed in theaters, Steven Soderbergh's disease-minded feature has many of us here in the MTV Newsroom wondering what we would do if society started crumbling and the world came to a sudden, gruesome end.
Which "Fast and the Furious" cast member would we want to spend our last few remaining days on Earth with? Which Ben Affleck movies would we, uh, you know to? We put these hard questions and more to Matt Damon, Marion Cotillard and other stars attending the "Contagion" premiere in New York City last week… and their answers may sicken you!
Much of the recent "Sex and the City" sequel talk has focused on the so-called adaptation of "The Carrie Diaries," but don't be so quick to dismiss a third theatrical outing for Carrie Bradshaw and her merry band of New York socialites!
It just so happens that we've got exclusive intel on what's set to go down when "Sex and the City 3" rolls its way into theaters. And by exclusive intel, we mean, not really. But it's fun to pretend that Carrie and Samantha have to team up with time traveler Rex Powers to go back to the Wild West and rescue Charlotte and Miranda from a time vortex, isn't it?
Check out our latest edition of After Hours for a reading of a scene from the time-displaced "Sex" sequel, starring "I Don't Know How She Does It" co-stars Sarah Jessica Parker and Greg Kinnear!
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to another installment of MTV News' famous After Hours hit, The Yes/No Show, with this week's special guests, "One Day" stars Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess. As fans of the previous editions of the show, Hathaway and Sturgess knew exactly what to expect when MTV's Josh Horowitz wheeled in his brand new podium for The Yes/No Show. And, as they noticed, the production value has gotten better since previous episodes. Thanks, loyal following!
So does Anne Hathaway own pornography? Are either of them on prescription drugs? Does Jim Sturgess mind if MTV mispronounces his name? All answers will be revealed in the above interview.

Danny McBride is hardly a stranger to the mad house that is MTV's After Hours, and while he's forced beer down fearless host Josh Horowitz's throat in the past, it's his own belly he should be worrying about in this latest round… because in today's After Hours, McBride goes up against world famous competitive eater Takeru Kobayashi in a pizza-eating throw down!
Luckily, Danny isn't alone — he's got Josh on his side for back-up, though based on his performance, we feel pretty confident in saying that McBride could have taken Kobayashi on all on his own and produced a similar result. See the ultimate chow-down for yourself in the latest episode of After Hours.
FROM MTV SPLASH PAGE: Forget booth babes, could it be that the celebrities are the real posers at Comic-Con? MTV News decided to get to the bottom of this curious dilemma in the special SDCC installment of After Hours: "Geeks or Posers?"
With nerdy stars like Patrick Stewart and Jon Favreau flocking to the convention center, we figured that the five-question quiz would be easy picking for actors of their caliber. Little did we know how few Hollywood leading men and ladies had any idea what manga was, or how most of the world has forgotten the full title of "Superman IV."

In November of last year, the cast of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1" proved their ability to commit to English by way of the good old US of A in "American Talk With Josh Horowitz." If you thought that our After Hours host was done putting them through hoops filled with American slang and pop culture references, well, you must have forgotten that there was another part of "Deathly Hallows" to enjoy — and, by extension, another press junket in which we could harass our favorite "Potter" stars one last time.
It's our pleasure to present "American Talk 2.0," a revamped version of the game show that doesn't just test our "Potter" stars' abilities to speak in an American accent, but also their breadth of knowledge in all things Kardashian and "Back to the Future." Our contestants this go-around include Tom Felton, Matthew Lewis and Harry Potter World Cup runner-up Rupert Grint. How'd they fare in this latest competition? Just hit play and you'll see for yourself!
You think you know Elijah Wood. But, to quote an old saying 'round these parts, you have no idea.
If you thought, for example, that he got all of his ring-created rage out of his system during "Lord of the Rings," you were wrong. Thought that "Sin City" gave him the great psychotic outlet he so desperately needed? Not so. No, Elijah most certainlly still has some mischief up his sleeve, as MTV's Josh Horowitz learned in the latest edition of After Hours.
The occasional Frodo Baggins, currently starring in FX's hilarious new comedy series "Wilfred," is a noted fan of our work here at MTV News, so he swung by to get the lowdown on what goes on here in the newsroom. Turns out, that's not the only reason he was here. Watch the video below and look into Wood's evil Eye of Sauron for yourself.
When you're placed in a room with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and the cast of "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," what kinds of questions are you supposed to ask? Do you want to hear them talk about what it was like to fight alongside Optimus Prime, or to recount their experiences with wingsuits flying over downtown Chicago?
No. That's not what you want to hear. We know what you're looking for from the "Transformers" gang — a good old fashioned game of "F---, Marry or Kill."
MTV News spoke with the "Dark of the Moon" cast at the Moscow press junket last week for our latest edition of After Hours, wherein host Josh Horowitz got down to the "Nuts and Bolts" of what's really important in the world of "Transformers"… namely, which famous pop culture robots would they murder, which ones would they marry and which ones would they… well, you know!
"Green Lantern" hits movie theaters today, bringing the longtime DC Comics superhero to the big screen for the very first time. Ryan Reynolds stars as Hal Jordan, a cocky fighter pilot who reluctantly accepts a powerful ring from a dying alien that transforms him into a member of the Green Lantern Corps, an intergalactic peace-keeping force with the ability to create wildly imaginative constructs and bend matter to their own willpower's greatest extent. "Gossip Girl" and "The Town" actress Blake Lively stars alongside Reynolds as Carol Ferris, a fellow pilot, one of Hal's closest confidants and, of course, his potential love interest.
Needless to say, the very concept of "Green Lantern" raises a lot of questions. Our pals at Splash Page have answered more than their fair share from identifying Hal's greatest foes to pinpointing "Green Lantern" Easter Eggs. But today, we're asking Reynolds and Lively different questions. Like, is Serena van deer Woodsen a stupid name? Does Reynolds have better abs than Ryan Gosling?
The answers to all of those pseudo-pressing questions and more rest in this week's edition of MTV After Hours. Enjoy, and let us know what you think in the comments section and on Twitter!
MTV's Josh Horowitz has been floating around show business for a while, but that doesn't mean he's got this interviewing thing totally under control.
Or, at least that's what he wants us to believe in the latest MTV Movie Awards edition of After Hours, in which Josh performs a series of interview faux pas with a variety of our favorite movie stars from Danny McBride to Olivia Wilde, and it doesn't end up so well for him. Future interviewers, a word to the wise: Cameron Diaz doesn't like your butt in her face and Keanu Reeves could do without you suggesting he change his name.
