Kid Cudi may be beefing big time with his label over allegations that they're not promoting his tunes to radio, but the G.O.O.D. Music MC seems to have no problems with Hollywood.
After a well-received stint as a lovable dope slinger on HBO's canceled "How To Make It in America," Scott Mescudi has signed on for his second big screen feature. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Cudi is lined up to star alongside "Breaking Bad" star Aaron Paul in the Dreamworks adaptation of the video game "Need for Speed."
Before we say anything else, there's something that must be said. Yes, we are MTV, the same MTV that, for the past five years, has heaped Golden Popcorn onto "The Twilight Saga," an otherwise award-less franchise. (Hey, sorry for giving our audience what they want, right?) We've been a home for wayward Twi-hards from the very beginning, but before you dismiss what we have to say, hear us out.
"Breaking Dawn - Part 2" simply did not deserve the public shaming at the hands of the Razzies, who officially announced their Worst Achievement in Film nominees today.
The anti-Academy Awards, which traditionally announce their nominees a day before their unironic counterpart, unleashed 11 nominations for Golden Raspberries onto the fifth "Twilight" film, despite there only being ten categories. The closest contender, "That's My Boy," only managed to fail to the tune of eight nominations.
"Warm Bodies" sounds kind of weird, right? It's a "Twilight"-like paranormal romance, except it's about a zombie? MTV News just had to find out what the latest movie from "50/50" director Jonathan Levine, so Christina Garibaldi headed to the set.
The way star Teresa Palmer describes it, the somewhat silly premise is a way to have your brains and eat them too.
"When you think of zombie movies you think of R-rated, everyone eating brains, blood and gore, craziness like that," she said. "In our film, it's great because we sort of get the best of both worlds and we get to see that typical zombie genre, but then there's also a lot more emotional depth to our film and there's a love story and these zombies they were once real people and they still have the same feelings and thoughts, especially R."
"Warm Bodies" opens on February 1.
MTV Movie Brawl, the annual battle royale of the year's biggest blockbusters, is back, and the combatants of 2013 look fiercer than ever. Some of film's most popular franchises will go head-to-head to see which will come out victorious in reader-voted polls.
Will Katniss get some redemption with "Catching Fire" after last year's defeat? Can "Iron Man 3" take down the "Man of Steel"? Can either of the new YA offerings, "Beautiful Creatures" or "The Mortal Instruments," fill the gap left by "The Twilight Saga"?

"The Hunger Games" might not have been the top grossing or most acclaimed movie of the year, but it was the film that people cared about the most.
Google has released a list of its top trends for 2012, and "The Hunger Games" came out on top of the movies category. It makes sense, too: There was plenty of hype leading up to the March release of "The Hunger Games," with many positing that it could be the next "Twilight." It remains to be seen if the film series will have the same sort of staying power that "The Twilight Saga" did, but we'd argue that it has lived up to its expectations thus far.
Like any year at the movies, we lost a lot of good characters in 2012. Some were more expected than others. Some caught us completely by surprise. Some were beautifully telegraphed, and we watched them unfold in a hilariously unstoppable train wreck.

In the post-tumblr world, there is a new standard for movie longevity.
