With today's release of "World War Z," there are many outlets reviewing the film. So where do you go to get the most honest opinion? The team from NextMovie met up with hip-hop group Flatbush Zombies and put them on the spot for their latest episode of Rappers Review Movies. The group discussed the special effects, what sets this movie apart from other zombie movies and most notably, Brad Pitt’s hair.
Throughout the storied, troubled production of "World War Z," Brad Pitt has stuck by the epic zombie takeover film, and now that the positive reviews are surfacing, it's beginning to seem like he had the right idea all along.
When MTV News' Josh Horowitz caught up with Pitt in Times Square during an event for the film there, Pitt explained how his own paternal instincts mirror his chraracter's. "Always, I mean, always. It's a papa bear — it's just instinctual," Pitt said. "It kicks in. It's kind of amazing how that happens, but comforting."
Pitt spoke passionately about the film, having had to weather scrutiny from the media before the film even screened. "It's just big and fun, and this is the most intense thing you're going to see all year," he said. "It's the most intense thing I've done. We're really thrilled by it."
"World War Z" opens in theaters tomorrow, June 21.
Yesterday, we lost one of our very best actors, James Gandolfini, who died of an alleged heart attack while on vacation in Italy at the age of 51. Gandolfini will always be best known for his role on "The Sopranos," but a scene in "True Romance" perfectly captures everything he brought to the screen.
The scene, which was written by Quentin Tarantino and co-stars Patricia Arquette, is both horrifying and dark humorous in its brutality, and Gandolfini is pitch perfect as the thug hired to find the stolen cocaine.
Gandolfini's legacy will continue to live out on the screen in a scenes like the one above. Share your favorite James Gandolfini moments in the comments below.
After many roadblocks, things are finally going right for Lloyd and Harry. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are confirmed to reunite for the long-awaited Dumb and Dumber sequel, "Dumber and Dumber To." Just over one week after New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. dropped the comedy, Universal Pictures and Red Granite Pictures have come aboard to revive the project.
Peter and Bobby Farrelly will return to direct the sequel. The sibling duo wrote on Twitter:
Any movie that features vampires and wants to be taken seriously, as a rule, will face comparisons to the throngs of blooding sucking fiction and films that came in the wake of "Twilight."
For Gemma Arterton, whose new movie "Byzantium" is about a vampire mother-daughter duo from acclaimed director Neil Jordan, there are perks and drawbacks to belonging to that trendy club, as she explained to MTV News' Josh Horowitz during a recent visit to the newsroom.
"Actually, it's kind of a double-edged sword because they're marketing it as a vampire movie because there is a market for that," Arterton said. "It's much more human in a way. It's actually about mother and daughter and what it's like to be 200 years-old with your mother or daughter. It's much more of a traditional vampire story in many senses."
The first trailer for "Kick-Ass 2" let us know that not only are our favorite heroes and villains from the first movie making their triumphant return for a follow-up, but we also learned that they're bringing friends. But every group of super villains needs a lair to hangout in and host epic showdowns with heroes. That's exactly what MTV News went to see when we headed to the London set of "Kick-Ass 2."
Josh Wigler sneaked into the headquarters of the villain formerly known as "Red mist" — and now known as something much more NSFW — to see how the final showdown would go down.
But the new movie won't be all butt kicking. MTV News spoke with some of the stars to see how things have changed since the first "Kick-Ass."
To kick off our epic MTV First with the cast of "Man of Steel," Superman himself, Henry Cavill, introduced a never-before-seen clip from the movie, which is out in theaters now.
In the clip, Superman battles with Zod cohort Faora, who has a few things to teach the superhero about morality and evolution. We also get a glimpse at the how the superhuman action looks in the movie: fast and furious.
Check out the clip above and be sure to watch our entire 30-minute interview with the cast of "Man of Steel."

"Need for Speed," the next enormous video game franchise to make the leap to the big screen, debuted the first look at footage in what's probably the most appropriate place possible, E3.
The gaming expo is going on right now, and if you've been able to pull yourself away from compiling a list of ways that Playstation 4 blows Xbox One completely out of the water (which it does), you probably saw a brief look at the new racing movie starring Aaron Paul from "Breaking Bad."
The featurette gives us a brief look at the production, along with a quick chat with director Scott Waugh, who seems like he really wants us to get into the car racing aspect of the action.
When your pitch for a movie is "Die Hard in the White House," it communicates pretty well what we can expect. There's going to be a lone, witty hero in a tank top who has to beat the odds to save the day, expect this time the president will be involved.
That's what we've seen so far from "White House Down," a new action movie starring Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum as John McClane John Cale. (Yes, you can spell "John Cale" but rearranging letters and deleting three of them from "John McClane.")
But now a new four-minute trailer is showing us just how "Die Hard"-y "White House Down" will be. Hint: There's a talkative, eccentric computer wiz working for the terrorists. Check it out after the jump!
