Yesterday, we debuted your very first look at the sequel to Logan Lerman's breakout in "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief," but today MTV News has an exclusive interview with the "Sea of Monsters" star, talking about what's going to be different this time around.
"The first one was big," Lerman said of "The Lightning Thief. "It's definitely a bigger story [in 'Sea of Monsters'], bigger monsters, bigger effects, 3-D."
Check out more of our interview with Lerman about "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters" above, and watch the entire interview when it airs on MTV during Rated MTV this Friday, April 5.
"Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters" opens on August 16.
Winter has come to Manhattan. Well, actually, it never left, but bear with me here... As I was saying: Winter has come to Manhattan in the form of "Game of Thrones" The Exhibition, a touring collection of Westeros memorabilia (Ned Stark's severed head, anyone?), sponsored by HBO and Time Warner Cable. And in celebration of the exhibit's only U.S. stop, a slew of the realm's famous faces abandoned their firs and corsets to attend a special VIP opening Wednesday night in New York.
Among the dapper stars was Kit Harington, whom fans know as man-in-black Jon Snow. As we chatted about the upcoming season, Harington surprised us by revealing he didn't actually read any portions of the script in which his character didn't appear—meaning he's just as in the dark about Dany's dragons or Arya's whereabouts as we are.
"This year, I didn't read the script. I just read my portion, which may seem like lazy actor stuff, but it wasn't," he explained. "I wanted to watch the TV show fresh as a viewer would."
Danny Boyle's latest film "Trance," which opens in limited release on April 5, tells the story of three characters, one that wouldn't be so complicated if it wasn't for the painting heist, hypnosis, and amnesia.
In this exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette from the film, Boyle and his cast talk a bit about the confusing nature of the film and how the audience will still be able to relate even when they don't know what's going on.
"The problem for all of the characters in this film is this idea of perception and reality," Boyle says. "Who's to say what is real, really?"
James McAvoy, who plays the man at the center of the psychedelic crime drama, explains that making a performance relatable is key to keeping the audience connected. "One of the things about this film is that the performances have to be really nailed down because when the audience, when they're meant to be in a position that they really don't know what's happening, they can still latch onto the performances," he says.
This past summer, a smash hit crime film opened in a handful of US cinemas with one of the hottest rises actors starring and the greatest directors of all time presenting it. Sound familiar?
At its widest in the US, "Easy Money" was screening in all of seven theaters, but make no mistake, this is a movie worth seeking out.
Originally release in its native Sweden in 2010, "Snabba Cash," as it was formerly titled, became an instant hit and spawned a sequel, with a third film out later this year, all starring future "Robocop" star Joel Kinnaman.
When "Snabba Cash" became "Easy Money" for its stateside release, Martin Scorsese attached his name as a presenter in order to attract more attention to the story of JW, a man trying to make it in the world by any means necessary.
For the DVD release of "Easy Money," we present an exclusive NSFW clip from the film. Check it out above and thank us later.
In the weeks leading up to the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, MTV News is bringing you exclusive interviews with some of the biggest stars for Rated MTV. This Friday on MTV, we have the cast of the most insane college party movie of all time, "Spring Breakers."
Over the course of our chat with Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine, MTV News' Josh Horowitz covers a wide range of topics, from watching real spring breakers party and their shared knowledge of Britney Spears lyrics.
Check it all out on this Movie Awards edition of Rated MTV with the cast of "Spring Breakers."
Joseph Kosinski's "Oblivion" shows a new science fiction universe, and a recently released featurette for the movie highlights the creation of the movie's "Bubbleship" spaceship.
"The whole philosophy for the movie was to try to shoot everything in camera, so we decided it made sense to build a full scale version of the Bubbleship," Kosinski said in the video, adding that "Oblivion's" leading man had a big part in the ship's creation. "[Star Tom Cruise] had some input on the controls to make sure it felt as realistic as possible with the foot pedals and the control stick."
If you've ever wanted to see Oz (the werewolf) and Dawn (the Key) from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" making out, then we've got something extra special for you!
If you're like us, you find the whole idea kind of distasteful. Even though Seth Green and Michelle Trachtenberg's stints on "Buffy" did not overlap, Oz and Dawn snogging just seems... wrong.
But we believe in Seth and Michelle and fully support their endeavors (we especially lament the fact that we might not get to see Seth's "Star Wars: Detours" for a long, long time). So let's try to put the icky feelings aside and enjoy this exclusive clip from the crime thriller "Sexy Evil Genius."
"Sexy Evil Genius," which also stars Katee Sackhoff, William Baldwin and Harold Perrineau, will be available on DVD, VOD and digital download on April 9th.
"Godzilla" has officially started filming, and now a video has been released by Legendary Pictures that shows director Gareth Edwards on set. It was taken right after the "Godzilla" crew filmed the movie's first shot, and Edwards seems ready to burst with excitement about finally getting the film underway.
"Hi Legendary fans, it's Gareth and this is day one of a very long shoot for 'Godzilla' and we've just finished the first shot. It went great," Edwards said. "I can't tell you any more, you'll have to see the movie."
Alex Winter, one half of the rock 'n roll duo Bill and Ted aka Wyld Stallyns, has focused mostly on directing in the last few years, and his latest film, a documentary called "Downloaded," takes a look at the technology that changed the music industry forever, Napster.
MTV News sat down with Winter at SXSW, where he and VH1 Rock Docs premiered "Downloaded" this past week, and spoke with him about bringing the project together and how our own little news organization played a part in making it all happen.
"I pulled a lot of archival from the MTV News vaults, which hyper-covered this story," Winter told Josh Horowitz. "I was finding amazing gems in that. [Sean] Parker and [Shawn] Fanning young, all of the Metallica raid on the office, all of it, most of which is in the movie."
