FROM MTV NEWS
The nominee list alone assures that some of Hollywood's biggest stars will take the stage on April 14 at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, but a new announcement has confirmed which musical star will be entertaining all of us on that special night.
"Spring Breakers" star Selena Gomez will make her triumphant return to the stage at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards to sing her brand new single "Come & Get It." The performance will be the single's first and Gomez's first since returning to music.
"It is my first performance back as a musician," she told MTV News. "I'm so nervous! I think it's really cool, 'cause I got to take a year off of music and really be a part of great movies and work with great people, so I thought it would be perfect that I kind of go into music again through MTV and then the Movie Awards. So I thought it would be appropriate. I'm so stoked!"

Tom Hiddleston might be best known for his role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but he also has a knack for comedy. The Brit got to flaunt that skill during the MTV After Hours sketch "Loki'd," so we're going to take partial responsibility for the next bit of news.
The blog called Muppets Henson reports that Hiddleston has a role in the upcoming film "The Muppets... Again." He will reportedly play The Great Escapo, and hopefully will have more than just a cameo.
If you're one of the 10 people who haven't been watching Vince Gilligan's "Breaking Bad" (seriously, stop what you're doing, and go watch it), we're going to give it to you straight: the show is as addictive as the methamphetamine that is bought and sold by the series characters.
Between the incredible talent on display, the sharp writing, and the jaw-dropping twists the story has taken, it's easy to become obsessed with the AMC drama. It's also why we weren't surprised to find out that according to Vulture, one of the final "Breaking Bad" scripts was stolen from star Bryan Cranston's car.
Sam Mendes might not be back for "Bond 24," but producer Barbara Broccoli is holding out hope that he'll never say never again. In a new interview, she and her fellow producer Michael G. Wilson said they think Mendes could return to the 007 franchise at some point in the future.
"We haven't given up hope. We'll get him back sometime," Broccoli said on the Empire Awards red carpet to Getty Images Entertainment (via /Film). "Maybe not for the next one... but hopefully we will get him back again."
Wilson added, "We hope that with all this success maybe he would have gotten inspired to come back."
If you didn't pick up "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" on Blu-ray last week, you missed out on a live, hour-long look behind the scenes of the second installment hosted by director Peter Jackson and Jed Brophy, who played Nori the dwarf. More specifically, you missed a lot of time watching Jackson in the editing bay, some footage of on the green screen sets, and an actual clip from the "Desolation of Smaug."
All in all, it was a cool event, especially when we're as starved as we are for more "Hobbit." There were some definite highlights, and we've got the whole rundown for you after the jump!
Will Smith has revealed a main reason why he turned down the role of Django in "Django Unchained." To hear him tell it, it's because Django wouldn't be the lead role in the movie.
"Django wasn't the lead, so it was like, I need to be the lead. The other character [Christoph Waltz's Oscar-winning King Schultz] was the lead!" Smith told Entertainment Weekly. "I was like 'No, Quentin, please, I need to kill the bad guy!"
Michael Bay is doing his best to assemble a dreamy cast for a movie that stars CGI turtles. It is being reported that "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" stud Alan Ritchson has joined the cast of Bay's upcoming "Ninja Turtles" as Raphael.
We get it... sort of. Ritchson needed to prove he was good with a dagger in "Catching Fire" in order to portray the character Gloss, and that skill will come into play with Raphael. As the teenage mutant ninja turtle wields twin sai, Ritchson needs to be able to use the weapons adeptly.
Remember that "Lego" movie? The one called, fittingly, "The Lego Movie"? The project isn't due out in theaters until February 7, 2014, but the title logo has just been released. Though it doesn't share much in the way of plot details, the image that's debuted is a clever take on the building block toys that many played with in their youths.
Don't think that this movie is going to be as simple as its title logo implies, though. "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs" directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller teamed up with "Robot Chicken's" Chris McKay to bring this story to life, and it actually is described as a pretty intense fantasy adventure. Couple that with the fact that it has an amazing array of actors on board to voice characters and we're definitely looking forward to this film.
So far, "Transformers 4" has found two leading men, and now the latest update from the Autobots and the Decepticons pinpoints which city will get exploded over and over next. It appears that Detroit, Michigan is the next city on Michael Bay's hit list and is set for destruction in "Transformers 4."
The update comes from the Michigan Film Office (via ComingSoon) in the way of a press release about the filming location that includes a brief description of the plot.
There's definitely some "Terminator" influence in the set-up of the movie, and if you click past the jump, you can read the description and see if you share our option on what it all means.
Want a Sparknotes version of the excitement coming in the new "Fast and the Furious" movie, "Fast & Furious 6"? Well, you're in luck, because the latest TV spot released by Universal Pictures features all the high points from the movie.
There will be explosions. And a tank. And a crashing plane. And a partnership between Dom and Hobbs. And the return of Michelle Rodriguez. Oh, and there looks like there will be some awesome driving scenes along the way. Like we said, this 30-second teaser summarizes all we need to know about the movie to be interested in it in half a minute.
