This is it. We mean it this time. We have reached the finals of MTV's ultimate competition to determine the most anticipated movie of 2013.

It comes down to two of YA's most popular series, "The Hunger Games" and "The Mortal Instruments." In terms of the Movie Brawl, "Catching Fire" is the returning combatant looking for revenge after a bitter defeat last year, and "City of Bones" is the young hot shot out to prove itself in the film world.

Over the past few decades Sundance has expanded beyond a cozy little film festival to become one of the biggest parties of the year. Celebs! Music! Parties! Everyone from earnest artists to drink-toting socialites flock to Park City, Utah to take in all that Sundance has to offer.

With that rich history in mind, we social-archeologists dug back into the Sundance scene to find out what our favorite celebrities were doing way back when. Here is our collection of recently unearthed WTF moments — blame it on the booze or blame it on the early 2000’ decide.

Before he became the full on rage monster you see today, even the Hulk had his angsty phase. (2002)

Here’s Golden Globe-winning director Ben Affleck enjoying the festivities — totes sober. (2002)

In retrospect, Ben Affleck’s retro-transformation for "Argo" is a little more fashionable than his sixth N'Sync member look. But to be fair, who didn't want to be in N'Sync? (2000)

Speaking of N'Sync, Sundance was the location for the much forgotten scarf-assassination attempt on Lance Bass. (2002)

Someone please tell this girl that Sundance is in the middle of winter in Utah – and everybody knows tiger stripes don't provide warmth unless you fully button-up. (2001)

Paris, keep trying – but points for originality on trying out a shoe-scarf. (2001)

Scanning the room at an industry party - look, it's Jake Gyllenhaal playing PlayStation! Tip: "Crash Bandicoot" is a great Gyllenhaal icebreaker. (2001)

Judging by her face, I can only imagine the wrath Courtney brought down on the person who convinced her to try snowboarding. (2001)

Catching Fire

It might be a little late for this, but you can now officially get super-duper excited for "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire."

Entertainment Weekly just released the cover of their 2013 Preivew, and it features our first totally legit look at the form-fitting costumes on Jennifer Lawrence, returning as Katniss Everdeen, and a nicely coiffed Sam Claflin as Finnick Odair.

Star Trek

How about some brand new photos from "Star Trek Into Darkness" to continue to help welcome in 2013? Today Paramount unleashed a collection of 11 new production stills. Not quite as exciting as a full-length trailer of course, but director J.J. Abrams knows what he's doing when it comes to keeping fan expectation as high as possible without actually revealing any plot points.

So without further ado, feast your eyes at the images below and join us in over-analyzing the hidden meanings that may or may not be embedded within the highly-stylized frames. On the whole the common theme in these photos is action and anticipation; either our heroes are in a defensive pose holding guns or communication devices or they're looking at each other with worried expressions, likely thinking about some impending doom involved with their introduction to Benedict Cumberbatch's multi-dimensional villain.

Movie 43

One look at this exclusive set of photos and there's no mistaking which upcoming movie that come from. Let's see: lots of celebrities (check), multiple story lines (check), all very inappropriate (check). Yeah, that's definitely "Movie 43."

The comedy anthology brings together the likes of Emma Stone, Kate Winslet, and Hugh Jackman in segments directed by Peter Farrrelly, Elizabeth Banks, and James Gunn.

The photos highlight segments featuring Johnny Knoxville, Richard Gere, and Terrence Howard, and generally focus on the randomness of everything you're about to see.

Check out the rest of the exclusive images from "Movie 43" and a NSFW trailer after the jump!

A bachelor party or wedding may no longer be in the works, but it looks like the Wolfpack is heading back to Las Vegas to manage a little mischief in the upcoming third installment of "The Hangover."

Entertainment Weekly revealed not only two new photos from the film—including one where we see Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha), walking through Vegas in a Fab-Four-style line-up—but also a few clues on its mysterious storyline, as dropped by the movie's director, Todd Phillips.

Harry who? Daniel Radcliffe is showing off a whole new look in a new image from the upcoming indie "Kill Your Darlings," and we love how far he's come from his "Harry Potter" days.

"Kill Your Darlings" will make its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, and the website for the fest has a new image from the film. It shows Radcliffe as a young Allen Ginsberg, Dane DeHaan as Lucien Carr and Jack Huston as Jack Kerouac, but its Radcliffe who disappears most into his character.

The Hobbit

We may still have a week to go before "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" hits theaters, but in the world of movie marketing, it's time to get excited about the trilogy's third installment "There and Back Again" right now!

On the same night as the New York premiere of "An Unexpected Journey," Entertainment Weekly released a photo that many assumed was a simple mistake. The magazine claimed that the shot of Orlando Bloom as Legolas and Luke Evans as Bard the Bowman they released online came from "There and Back Again," the former title of the second installment and new name of the third.
