The Avengers handled the 2013 MTV Movie Awards like that were an alien invasion on New York City. In other worlds: they won, big time.
Marvel's ultimate team of heroes were the biggest winners of the night, taking home three awards: Best Fight, Best Villain, and Movie of the Year. Other winners included Jennifer Lawrence and her "Silver Linings Playbook" co-star Bradley Cooper. Each won their respective acting categories and took the Best Kiss Golden Popcorn.
Kellan Lutz is cranking up the heat for his next big project. In "Java Heat," the "Twilight" star will play an American agent who must go on an old-fashioned quest to rescue a kidnapped princess in Indonesia.
The princess in question is being held captive by a terrorist, played by Mickey Rourke.
With Lutz taking his biggest action role since the conclusion of "The Twilight Saga," and Rourke being the go-to Hollywood actor for mad men with funny accents, "Java Heat" should be a lethal concoction.
"Java Heat" starring Kellan Lutz and Mickey Rourke will be in select theaters on May 10 and available on Video On-Demand starting May 13.
March usually comes in like a lion or a lamb. This year it blew in shrieking like a Bieber-crazed junior high girl. Movie news seemed to be steeped in love this past week. But it wasn't the kind of romance that's written about in 16th century literature; it was more the kind that's etched into Trapper Keepers with Wite-Out during study hall.
Yep, between a major Mila Kunis crush and a kiss-and-tell involving Oprah, the last seven days were all about puppy love. Here's how it went down:
The love story of Shovelface and Mouth Breather comes to an end in the final installment of Honest Trailer's take on "The Twilight Saga," "Breaking Dawn." The hilarious takedown of the final two "Twilight" movies doesn't just mock Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, but also the Cullens, the "Snow Dogs" and the fact that vampires don't even sparkle in the sunlight anymore. Hey, that's a good point!
The funniest parts come from the Honest Trailers montage of all of "Breaking Dawn's" stares, the need for four different chess games and KStew's inability to apply toothpaste to a toothbrush. Yes, really, it happened. Check out the video after the jump!
It's not rare for a specific year at the movies to have an overarching theme. The similarities in the biggest films of the year are often easiest to distinguish during awards season, when we get a nice snapshot of the year that was, and 2012 was no different.
There has been a ton of speculation about Damon Lindelof and Brad Bird's sci-fi collaboration "Tomorrowland" (named after a Disney theme world), formerly titled "1952." Plot comparisons to Steven Spielberg's "Close Encounters" had fans extremely excited, and then a fascinating article from entertainment journalist and Disney expert Jim Hill popped up that took the mysterious project in a slightly different direction.
Hill claimed the film, inspired by a box of Disney World memorabilia circa 1952, would be based on an unproduced television series that the U.S. government approached Walt with. The show would reveal to American audiences that those alien buggers they had been hearing about all over the news were real. A scoop on website HitFix, however, suggests yet another possibility — one that could be even stranger than the "UFOs are real" plotline. A leaked synopsis being used by a Hollywood agency to cast the 2014 film reads as follows:
Xan Cassavetes — daughter of famed moviemaking couple director John Cassavetes and actress Gena Rowlands — seems to have been inspired by the sexy and twisted vampire films from the 1970s for her new movie "Kiss of the Damned." The cool, contemporary take on bloodsucking fiends tells the story of one vamp falling in love with a human, but the relationship is threatened when the undead woman's wild sister shows up.
The entire vampire community also becomes endangered thanks to the troublemaker's pathological personality. The red band trailer that popped up on Yahoo! this week reveals a very retro, erotic vibe. Look for "Kiss of the Damned" on iTunes/On Demand March 28, or see it in theaters May 3. We vote you whet your appetite in the meantime by watching this NSFW trailer.

But we are still two rounds of voting away from crowning an ultimate champion, and there are four fierce competitors still left who won't go down without a fight.
There's "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," this year's story of vengeance after an upset last year. The Lermaniacs have pushed "Percy Jackson" this far. Can they take him one step further? Could "Spring Breakers" be this year's "Cosmopolis," the indie wonder that takes it all? Or will "The Mortal Instruments" fill the void left by "Twilight"?
