If you haven't watched it in a while, you might have forgotten that "District 9" is a super violent movie. There are guys exploding, prawns exploding, prawns ripping guys into pieces. It's intense stuff.
With "Elysium" being Neill Blomkamp's second film after "D9," there's no reason to expect the new Matt Damon film to pull any punches in the gore department, especially when the two films share a look that's so similar.
A new clip from Machinima should scrap any doubt you might have about the levels of violence in "Elysium." Check it out after the jump!
Cassandra Clare, the author behind the series of hit YA books "The Mortal Instruments," got to walk into one of her own fantasies when she visited the Toronto set of the first film adaptation "City of Bones," and MTV News was there to capture the magic.
Clare used the word "surreal" to explain the feeling of hanging out on a set full of characters she created. "My husband says it's like being at Disneyland where all of the rides are based on my book," she said. "It has gone through a long process."
Whenever a sequel is about to hit theaters, there's always this rush to rewatch the original to get in the mood for the follow-up. It's the best way to remember where we left off with the characters and think about what we can expect when they come back.
That's the idea behind a YEAH!, a new movie streaming site that gives the option of checking out some special features about the film as you watch. You can do things vote in polls and see interviews with the people who made the movie, and then jump right back into the movie.
In the lead up to "Kick-Ass 2," you can now watch the original online, starting Wednesday, August 7, with special looks behind the scenes and appearances by Mark Millar and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.
Check out a preview of "Kick-Ass" on YEAH! above. "Kick-Ass 2" opens in theaters on August 16.

The Autobots and Decepticons have descended upon the bankrupt city of Detroit, Michigan and seemed determined to blow it all up.
That's what we're seeing in two new videos from the set of "Transformers 4," Michael Bay's reboot of the series he started, which now stars Mark Wahlberg as a single father/inventor that encounters a new group of transforming robots, once again led by Optimus Prime and Bumblebee.

The folks over at Next Movie are at it again. Earlier this week, their first supercut of movie references in "The Simpsons" from seasons one through five blew up the internet, and now the hilarity is back for seasons six through ten, some of the show's very best.
The supercut includes classic "Simpsons" moments like Mr. Burns' reimagining of "Be Our Guest, "See My Vest," as well as one of the best episodes of all time "Itchy & Scratchy Land." (Hans Moleman in the phone booth kills me every time.)
Check out all of the movie-referencing goodness in part two of the "Simpsons" supercut above.
FROM NEXT MOVIE
"The Simpsons" has always been a show that likes to incorporate film references into its episodes in clever ways, many of them too subtle to catch on your first viewing. Since our love of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie will never, ever go away, we're very pleased to share a creation from our friends over at Next Movie that collects every cinematic nod from the first five seasons.
You're probably thinking "How could you possibly catch every single reference from 'The Simpsons,' even if it is just the first five season?" Well, the video is 20 minutes long, and should definitely be an indication of both the volume of movie references and the thoroughness of the supercut.
Check out the "Simpsons" movie reference supercut in the video above.
Aaron Paul is an amazing actor, right? That scene of him in the hospital bed from "Breaking Bad" was one of the show's finest moments, but Paul had to learn to walk before he could run away from murderous meth dealers.
Paul made his acting debut in an episode of "90210," and Jay Leno found the tape. As we see in Paul's most recent visit to "The Tonight Show," he wasn't exactly what you would call a natural. It's also when Paul had his first on-screen kiss, if you were wondering if it could get more awkward for the Emmy winner.
Check out the clip above and enjoy the look on Aaron Paul's face when they come back from the clip.
Typically, it takes any article about "Divergent" a dozen words before the writer mentions "The Hunger Games"—but during MTV News' trip to the Chicago set of the dystopian YA adaptation, its star Shailene Woodley painted a picture of her character Tris that didn't sound anything like Katniss Everdeen.
"The interesting thing about Tris is — I don't think she's a badass," Woodley said. "She's not a superhero. She's not an action star, and I think that there is something really refreshing about bringing a very normal adolescent to life in a way where she has to rise to the occasion and find her brave heart and be really courageous in situations where she doesn't necessarily want to be."
"Divergent," based on the novel by Veronica Roth, tells a story set in the future, where society has suffered a significant blow due to a war and it now organizes itself by it personality traits.
The movie will have a big presence at San Diego Comic-Con this week, and MTV News will be there with the cast live. Our coverage kicks off tomorrow, and we will bring you every update from the geekiest gathering of the year.
Even a movie with some seriously heightened action like "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" has to have some believable stunts when you get up close and personal with stars like Channing Tatum and Dwayne Johnson. That's why you have those guys doing many of the key stunts themselves.
In this exclusive featurette, the people behind the "G.I. Joe" sequel talk about how they brought characters like Roadblock and Duke to life and made it look real enough to believe.
"It's great for me, just in terms of action," Johnson says in the featurette, "because we're able to not only firing weapons, but also hand-to-hand combat, whether it's taking baton and striking somebody in the face or taking a knife, utilizing his vest that was specifically made for him."
"G.I. Joe: Retaliation" will be available for digital download starting tomorrow, July 16, and on Blu-ray and DVD two weeks later.
If you've ever seen an interview with "Pacific Rim" director Guillermo del Toro, you probably know that he's a super nice guy. Always enthusiastic, always cheerfully geeky, Guillermo is the best. But is there a dark side to the director?
When MTV News' Josh Horowitz sat down with Ron Perlman and Charlie Day to talk about "Pacific Rim," he couldn't help but ask if del Toro ever lost his cool, nice guy vibe. Perlman, who has worked with del Toro on numerous occasions, said that he's like family, so they've seen all different sides of each other.
"Guillermo and I have seen each other at our best and at our worst. We still adore each other. It's like we're real family," Perlman said. "That's what happens in families. We're together so much in so many different circumstances that sometime it's just going to get stupid, and sometimes it's going to be sublime."
So even if Perlman wasn't willing to give us some dirt, Day saw some darkness and wasn't afraid to share.
