On Friday night, I hit the midnight premiere of the Amy Poehler-Parker Posey-Rachel Dratch comedy "Spring Breakdown" at my personal favorite Sundance theater, the Library. The line to get in was longer than Robert Downey's rap sheet, and 2 drunk dudes behind me kept joking about how they'd definitely get in because they had hard tickets. "I'll give ya a hard ticket," one said, to much laughter from the other. (Watch an exclusive clip from "Spring Breakdown" here.)
Once I got in, I saw several of the stars from the flick sitting in the middle of the crowd. The films at this year's 25th annual fest starts with a short commercial featuring people's past Sundance memories. Read More...
From Jill Hennessy and Emma Roberts to Amy Poehler and Parker Posey, everyone's getting in on our MTV Sundance Photo Booth action. Below, check out "Hellboy" and future "Hobbit" director Guillermo del Toro posing for our camera, and then click here or on the image to see all of the celebs in our ever-growing Photo Booth gallery.

"Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Undead" is not technically playing at Sundance, but it is premiering at Slamdance -- a sort of unofficial sister festival to Sundance that prides itself on accepting films that the larger festival may have bypassed for whatever reason. The film -- about a theater director who unknowingly accepts a gig adapting Hamlet from a horde of vampires -- is already gaining buzz here in Park City, and you'll see why in our exclusive clip. In the scene below, you'll get a decidedly sexy low-down on what you'll probably be wanting to see more of. Check it out.
Weekend? What weekend? It's the second full day of Sundance and things really kicking into gear now. Sure yesterday we had Spike Lee talking "Inside Man 2” and Amy Poehler swooning for the Jonas brothers, but today...well, today's got it all!
We're talking to "Iron Man 2” star Sam Rockwell in a bit all about his two Sundance flicks (it's required that he have at least that many at the festival each year.). Maybe you want some "Hobbit" news. Guillermo del Toro will be spending some quality time with us today (alongside "Children of Men" director Alfonso Cuaron!). Want a glam movie star? Then you'll want catch our chat with Ashley Judd.
And I didn't even mention Nick Cannon or Wesley frickin Snipes. It's going to be a hell of a day. Keep it right here for all the news.
When newlyweds Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon finally tied the knot, the attention quickly turned to, what else, baby talk! Catching up with them at Sundance, where the happy couple each have a film premiering, we managed to ask them for the latest word. Check out the results in the video below, and then click here to watch all of our Sundance interviews, updated throughout the week.
In town to promote their new film "Lymelife" -- a coming-of-age story set in 1970's Long Island -- stars Jill Hennessy and Emma Roberts were happy to partake in our burgeoning MTV News Sundance Photo Booth series. Click here or on the photo below to check out all of our rapidly growing gallery, including "SNL" star Amy Poehler, Spike Lee and more.
It seems only fitting that one of our first interviews during our first full day at Sundance would involve Parker Posey, star of countless films that have premiered here at Redford's institution of a film festival. Posey's here to talk about "Spring Breakdown," a high concept comedy co-starring SNL vets Amy Poehler and Rachel Dratch (check out the exclusive trailer here). When we got the trio together there was a lot of love in the air. Love for the skiers making their way down the mountain. Love for each other. And most importantly...Jonas brothers love. Well that last one really just came from Amy. Take a look.
Big plot changes and casting continuity are in store for Spike Lee’s sequel to his 2006 bank heist blockbuster, “Inside Man,” the director exclusively told MTV News at Sundance.
Early reports had the movie, tentatively titled “Inside Man 2,” focusing on Clive Owen and his crew of ingenious thieves getting embroiled in a New York diamond district heist. “Naw, naw, not anymore,” Lee now says of that potential storyline, declining to reveal any fresh details. “Can’t tell you, or I’ll have to do one of these,” he says, making a stabbing motion. He did admit that, like the first picture, the sequel will be shot on location in New York City. Read More...
