When you're watching a horror movie, do you ever stop to think how you would react if you actually encountered the on-screen creature in real life? If it's "The Last Exorcism: Part II" that we're talking about, you'd probably react just like these unfortunate salon customers.
In this prank set up to promote the sequel to the Eli Roth-produced faux-documentary, an outrageously flexible girl appears, poses, and crab walks the for the frightened patrons of a beauty salon. Not to ruin the video, they do not handle their encounter with the supernatural well.
"The Last Exorcism: Part II" opens in theaters on Friday.
Instead of progressing the "Fast and Furious" storyline in "Fast & Furious 6," star Vin Diesel and director Justin Lin are actually taking the movie a step backwards. As Diesel explained in a new featurette for the movie, this new installment of the fan-favorite series will serve to introduce audiences to the real version of Michelle Rodriguez' character Letty.
"In some ways, this film is the origin story of Letty," Diesel explained. Rodriguez added, "It will be interesting to see how you take up a character that — you have to watch it, I can't really explain much without giving it away."
On the red carpet at the Oscars, MTV News' Josh Horowitz couldn't help but totally geek out with Zoe Saldana about her two sci-fi franchises, J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek" and James Cameron's "Avatar," both of which are expecting sequels in the near to relatively near future.
But first thing's first, "Star Trek Into Darkness." What's up with Uhura and Spock, everyone's favorite love-birds aboard the Starship Enterprise? Where does their relationship pick up in May's sequel.
"I don't know. They're figuring things out" Saldana said. "They're definitely together, you know, because they work together on the Enterprise, and there's so much that's going on this time around with their situation as a crew, as the Enterprise, that it definitely is going to add a little stress to their relationship."
Don't let the title fool you — the parade is just beginning for "Parade's End."
Tonight (February 26) at 9 p.m. ET, HBO airs the first two installments of "Parade's End," director Susanna White and writer Tom Stoppard's five-part miniseries based on author Ford Madox Ford's novel series set in Europe during the threat of World War I. But the soldiers heading for the battlefield aren't the only ones at war; the miniseries focuses on the tumultuous marriage between Christopher and Sylvia Tietjens — played by future blockbuster stars Benedict Cumberbatch ("Star Trek Into Darkness") and Rebecca Hall ("Iron Man 3") — and what happens to their lives over the course of ten years.
Hall stopped by MTV News to talk about tonight's premiere of "Parade's End" and what viewers can expect to see. (Spoiler: expect the unexpected.)
Call us YA rookies, but "The Mortal Instruments" is fairly new to us and our knowledge of teen paranormal romance. We expected to see young, beautiful heroes brooding and battling supernatural evil, but the pantlessness comes as a bit of a surprise.
That's what MTV News' Josh Horowitz found on the set of "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" when he spoke with Godfrey Gao, the actor playing Magnus Bane. As it turns out, Gao was more surprised by the cold than the lack of pants.
"At first, I was like, 'All right, I thought this party was going to be an indoor mansion with a lot of lights and chandeliers like you see in back.' Turns out, it's outside, and it's actually, I think, 11 degrees Celsius [51 degrees Fahrenheit], so I'm just hanging out with my boxers on and everyone sees ... I have great legs."
"The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" opens on August 23.
Of the disappoints from this year's Academy Awards telecast, the one that still confuses us is the flat tribute to the 50 years of James Bond. If there's one thing you can usually count on the Oscars to deliver, it's tasteful movie montages, but the 007 sequence felt rushed and was surprisingly boring.
While it's sad to see the Oscars waste such a good opportunity, there is a consolation prize two days after the awards. The Playlist just posted a similar but much, much better montage made by 19-year-old Dutch film student Kees van Dijkhuizen Jr. It captures the spirit and the arc of the series in a way that the Oscars didn't even come close to.
Though the field of nominated films at this year's Oscars are varied and unique, there is one characteristic many of them share. The movie beards of 2012 were some of the best for a single year of Academy Awards nominees.
Regardless of what you're feelings are about the importance of the Academy Awards, there's something special about this new supercut of every Best Picture winner (via Indiewire) plus a look at the films that may join the 84 other films.
It's a fun trip back in movie history... until we get to 2004 and you see Matt Dillon in "Crash" and you think "Oh yeah."
When MTV News' Josh Horowitz spoke with the professional wrestler-turned-actor about his new film, "Snitch," the subject of his upcoming projects, including the recently confirmed, Brett Ratner-directed "Hercules," came up in conversation.
Johnson spoke enthusiastically about the prospect of the film, which is what he'll film next. "We have some movies getting ready to come out, but the next shoot, I'm really excited about, a passion project I've had now on my mind ever since I got into Hollywood, over 15 years now, 'Hercules.' I can't wait," he said. "We're going to shoot that in Croatia and Budapest. I've been preparing for this role now for the good part of a year."
Sometimes it's easy to forget the voice actor behind a character in an animated movie, but in the case of "Monsters University," John Goodman and Billy Crystal are an integral part of their characters James P. "Sully" Sullivan and Mike Wazowski. Goodman recently visited "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," and during his visit he gave his take on the plot of the new Pixar movie and debuted a new clip. His synopsis is much more succinct -- and hilarious -- than the official one.
"It's about Mike and Sully, my character, being in college, doing some fraternity pranks. Monsters, fraternities, they're not that far apart," Goodman explained.
