Ape riot! A brand-new teaser for "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" has arrived, and it delivers exactly what the title promises: apes, apes, apes rising up and terrorizing the streets!

Watch the progressively smarter apes as they stare with menacingly human eyes, clamor around in cages, swarm the trees of human suburbia and, finally, breathtakingly overrun the Golden Gate Bridge! It's ape-demonium!

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.

Mark Wahlberg is settling scores. On Sunday (June 5), the actor turned 40, and on Saturday night, MTV News caught up with "The Fighter" star backstage at the Spike Guys Choice Awards, where he went on quite the NSFW tirade about life, his episode of MTV's "The Knife Show," the MTV Movie Awards, the fact that he doesn't have the best track record at the show, his love for Justin Bieber's "Never Say Never" and anything else you could ever imagine.

At the Spike TV awards show, which airs Friday at 9 p.m. ET, Wahlberg took home the prize for Guy of the Year and a special award for "The Fighter," but it might be his chat with us that ends up being the most memorable part of his night. So, wish Mark a happy birthday by watching his video and then show him some love in the comments. We promise, it's worth your time.

Will wizards, vampires or dream thieves steal the 2011 MTV Movie Awards? Find out Sunday, when the 20th annual show airs live at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Tune in at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT for the "America's Best Dance Crew" finale and Movie Awards pre-show, loaded with live action from the red carpet, exclusive movie clips and a special edition of "After Hours."

Daniel Radcliffe, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1"
In "Deathly Hallows - Part 1," the full weight of the "Potter" franchise fell onto Daniel Radcliffe's capable shoulders, and he supported it better than we ever could have hoped. "Part 1" was definitely the best performance Dan has given in the franchise, and he is being duly rewarded for it.

When it comes to hosting the MTV Movie Awards, Aziz Ansari knows a thing or two about how to do it right.

Last year's host chatted with MTV News during Friday night's Sneak Peek Week event with his new flick "30 Minutes or Less," and he offered up the most important advice he had for Jason Sudeikis, who is hosting this year's ceremony.

His words of wisdom? Don't look at Jackie Chan during the show. Ever.

FROM HOLLYWOOD CRUSH: Taylor Lautner is in "30 Minutes or Less." Or at least that's what Aziz Ansari wants you to think.

In truth, the young "Twilight" star is not in the upcoming summer comedy (we can confirm it since we saw the movie last night), but at last night's Sneak Peek Week chat with Aziz, Nick Swardson and director Ruben Fleischer, the cast wanted the audience to think they had seen something they hadn't.
