Last week, we premiered an exclusive "Expendables 2" photo featuring the man, the myth, the legend… Chuck Norris. You guys were, understandably, big fans of the first look at Norris in the star-studded action sequel. Which means you should be very big fans of what we've got in store for you today.
We're pleased to premiere the official Chuck Norris "Expendables 2" poster, featuring the bearded badass armed to the teeth and ready to dole out his unique brand of justice on those who oppose him. And as we all know, anyone opposing Chuck Norris doesn't stand a chance.
Get a look at the full poster past the jump!
Our Summer Movie Preview Week continues with an exclusive look at "Moonrise Kingdom" character Cousin Ben!
The Wes Anderson film follows two twelve year olds who fall in love in the summer of 1965. They flee from their home island off the coast of New England and travel into the wilderness. As the Sheriff leads a search party to hunt them down, a storm approaches and their once peaceful home is shaken beyond anyone's control—which might be the town's saving grace. The all-star cast includes Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray and Tilda Swinton and Jason Schwartzman, who plays Cousin Ben.
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.
"I have an army." "We have a Hulk." And we just had a geekgasm. We've got the exclusive debut on a brand new "Avengers" clip featuring Tony Stark exchanging zingers with Loki, the God of Mischief. It's light on the action, but heavy on the awesome. Robert Downey Jr. and Tom Hiddleston are in top form in the scene, and we're dying to see more from the two of them. You'll be dying too once you've watched the clip. Stop dilly-dallying and get to it by clicking on the player below!
You guys know Walter, right? He's the very manly Muppet who just starred in — you guessed it — "The Muppets" late last year alongside Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy. Although the whistling Walter is an official member of the Muppets gang now, shaking off your uber-fandom isn't something that happens overnight. It takes a good little while to accept one's place in the big leagues, though we'll say, Walter is doing a heck of a job at that.
Still, the little guy has enough time on his hands to indulge his inner-Muppets fandom on more than a few occasions. Case in point: this MTV Movies exclusive "Muppets" infographic, cooked up by Walter himself! His years of fandom and expertise are on full display here: he's kept tabs on all of Gonzo the Great's fantastic stunt work (and resulting damage), the results of Dr. Bunsen Honeydew's weirdest experiments, the various tools in Swedish Chef's kitchen, and more. Pretty impressive stuff!

Skyrockets in flight! "Anchorman" delight!
That's right — after years and years and oh so many painful years of waiting, the news team is finally ready to assemble again. Paramount Pictures and Will Ferrell have announced that "Anchorman 2" is officially happening, with most of the film's principal cast expected to come back for another round.
That means Ferrell, Steve Carell and Paul Rudd, easily the three biggest stars from the film, are all set to reprise their roles as jazz flute extraordinaire Ron Burgundy, dumb-as-a-brick Brick Tamland, and veritable sex panther Brian Fantana. Original director Adam McKay will once again step behind the lens, as well as co-write alongside Ferrell.
"Game of Thrones" returns for its second season next Sunday (April 1), bringing a big mess of a war along with it. No fewer than five individuals have crowned themselves king in the great fantasy world of Westeros, each of them with their eye on the Iron Throne. All week long, we'll look at each of these would-be kings and catch you up on everything you need to know about them going into season two.
To kick things off, who better than the
man boy currently ruling in King's Landing?
Know Your King
You know him well by now: the cruel boy king Joffrey Baratheon. (Though he has no real claim to that last name, as you also know.) He sits upon the Iron Throne and rules King's Landing with ruthless, reckless abandon. Despite being surrounded by very capable (and very shady) advisors, Joffrey subscribes to the great Eric Cartman's "whatever, I do what I want" philosophy; he is the king, after all, and if he wants heads to roll, roll they shall.
When it comes to "The Cabin in the Woods," anyone and everyone who's seen it will tell you the same thing: the less you know, the better. But I don't think there's any harm in watching the exclusive clip you'll see below — no major spoilers revealed, premise remains fairly basic, secrets are firmly intact by the end. But what you will get out of this, which I think is of great benefit to anyone mulling over a trip to the "Cabin," is a strong sense of the film's tone.
Yes, "Cabin" is a horror movie, but it's also hilarious. What more would you expect from a movie written by Joss Whedon and directed by Whedon regular Drew Goddard? Or starring "Dollhouse" fan-favorite Fran Kranz, alongside a big dumb jock turn from Chris Hemsworth, and as-yet-to-be-revealed roles for Bradley Whitford and Richard Jenkins?
You'll get plenty of laughs and chills in the video below. Go on, click away — we dare you.
"Cabin in the Woods" hits theaters on April 13. Click here for more on our "Cabin in the Woods" sweepstakes!
"Cosmopolis's" first teaser trailer has hit the web and let's just say it's a bit more extreme than we would have expected.
The 30-second-long French trailer -- released yesterday on the film's French Facebook -- teases a performance from Robert Pattinson that is unlike anything we've ever seen. It opens up with Pattinson's voice set against a black background saying, "I'm looking for more. Aim and fire, come on, do it, flick the switch."
Is it a metaphor for something more? Maybe, but it's also entirely literal, as the teaser reveals Pattinson's sexy bodyguard and part time fling pointing a taser at his chest. He dares her, "Show me something I don't know." Our only response to that is, "Wow."
We've already detailed why Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark are two awesome characters from "The Hunger Games" film, so we'd be remiss if we didn't explain why Gale Hawthorne is a fitting third member to their group of badassdom.
Though Gale doesn't compete in the Hunger Games and has a relatively small role compared to Katniss and Peeta in the first film, he does have a much larger, significant part to play in the upcoming movies. Consider this a tease of all the reasons why you should pay attention to Katniss's best friend from District 12 when "The Hunger Games" hits theaters on Friday.
