The wave of emotion that emanated today from Washington D.C. even reached Park City, Utah. Yes, even with movies to sell all the actors and filmmakers MTV News spoke to today had one thing on the brain: President Obama. Well, actually Chris Rock was thinking more about former President George W. Bush. "George Bush is NOT president," he grinned and repeated and grinned again. A small part of that smile might also be attributed to his new documentary, "Good Hair" that just debuted here to positive attention.
He's "Jim" on "The Office," but for our MTV Sundance Photo Booth, he was just good 'ol John Krasinski. The star is in town to promote his new film, "Brief Interviews For Hideous Men," and as you see, he was all smiles. Be sure to check out the full MTV Sundance Photo Booth gallery featuring all the celebs of Sundance.
If the future of video is online, then Craig Brewer is already there. As the writer and director of "Hustle and Flow," Brewer rode his film into one of the biggest deals in Sundance history, and saw it launch Terrance Howard's career.
Now Brewer is back, teaming with MTV New Media, to launch a music-flavored webisode series titled $5 Cover. The concept is a novel one: each roughly 8-minute webisode follows a local musician in Memphis, Tennessee. The players are real, but their stories are often fictionalized, and the "characters" will drive in and out of other episodes. There will be 15 webisodes in total, so click here to check out Craig Brewer's "$5 Cover," and get the low-down in the video below.
Just about one year after our very first "Twilight" interview with Kristen Stewart, we're back at Sundance and so is she!
By now you must have scene -- as any decent Twilighter would have -- that we spoke with Kristen while she was promoting her festival film "Adventureland." She first sat down with co-star Margarita Levieva and they took their MTV photo booth photos before starting the interview. Half way through, Margarita swapped out and Jesse Eisenberg swapped in to finish up the chat, which you can check out in our Sundance Edition of our Rough Cut show.
While all this was going on, we took tons of photos, which you can check out in our behind-the-scenes gallery, and check out a sneak peek after the jump. Read More...
We've been covering rumors of an "Arrested Development" movie for nearly a year now, and have spoken about it to most of the actors involved. Everyone from Jason Bateman and Will Arnett have voiced their support of bringing the cult show to the bigscreen. But recently a newer rumor popped up claiming that Cera was the lone holdout of the cast. So is it true?
Speaking to MTV News to promote his Sundance film "Paper Heart," Cera refuted the rumors, saying that he's merely waiting for a script. But that may be a long time coming, claims the actor, labeling the film as "more hypothetical than people think." Check out his (rather hilarious) comments in the video below, and then click here to watch all of our celebrity interviews from Sundance, including Kristen Stewart, Jim Carrey, Mike Tyson and many more.
While it wasn't like the National Mall, Main Street here in Park City was still filled with people watching giant screens tuned to the inauguration ceremony. The Sundance Film Festival unofficially paused this morning for about an hour, when President Barack Obama took his oath and spoke to America for the first time as our President.
The crowed clapped and cheered, and, in some small way, it felt like we were almost there. Like those lucky enough to be in Washington on this historic day, we shared the experience with both friends and strangers alike. Here are some photos from our inauguration celebration:
Spotted at Sundance: Michelle Trachtenberg out showing off her film "Against the Current" all over Park City.
The actress stopped in at the MySpace Cafe to chat about many things including her return to "Gossip Girl" this spring, which means Serena had better get ready for life to turn upside down once again. So, what could Georgina possibly do to the Upper East Side now that the big secret's been dealt with? And, how's she even going to find her way home after Blair had her banished?
We turned to the source ... and she has no idea. Read More...
That's right, it's another jam-packed day here for the MTV News Sundance team. The festival may be winding down but you wouldn't know it from our interview line up.
Billy Bob Thorton and his "Manure" co-stars including Kyle MacLachlan will drop by, and it'll be an unofficial "Office" reunion with both John Krasinski and Ed Helms chatting us up.
Comedy is on the docket as well, as comedians Chris Rock and Patton Oswalt open up to our cameras. Toss in everyone else from Rose Byrne to Michael Shannon, and you can bet we'll be bringing the best of it to you.
