It's been a big year for blockbuster romance, but in an ocean of powerful kisses, only one is mighty enough to walk away from the 2011 MTV Movie Awards with the coveted golden popcorn for the Best Kiss category.
You can cast your vote for Best Kiss right now, but before you do, how about puckering up and refreshing yourself on some of the contenders? Keep reading for our rundown of this year's Best Kiss nominees!
Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis, "Black Swan"
At the height of Nina Sayers' trip towards a psychotic break, the up-and-coming and overly pressured dancer embarks on a drugged up night of passion with her colleague and rival Lilly — a memorable, if somewhat disturbing, first kiss.
The 2011 MTV Movie Awards are just days away, but before you cast your vote for Best Movie, how about looking at each nominee through a slightly different lens?
MTV News has teamed up with Starbucks Frappucino ® for the MTV Movie Awards Meme Mash-Ups, where we'll be spoofing each of this year's Best Movie nominees by way of the internet's most beloved and most notorious viral clips, from Talking Twin Babies to David After the Dentist.
You voted and your voice was heard. The first Meme Mash-Up to be revealed is .... "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse"!!
After you watch the video, be sure to scroll down and vote for which clip we'll reveal on Tuesday.
What happens when "Lost" meets "Iron Man"? More specifically, what happens when two of the creative masterminds behind those projects — Damon Lindelof and Jon Favreau — sit down and interview each other? We'll find out soon, if their mutual Twitter teases are any indication.
Similarly, we could very well be on the cusp of a collision between "Twilight" and the Judd Apatow comedy empire, as one actor from the blood-sucking series tweeted his personal pitch to work with the "Bridesmaids" producer at some point in the future.
I'm @roundhoward and we have all that and more in today's Twitter-Wood for May 18, 2011.
If one person's going to represent the dwindling human race in the face of an alien invasion, we could do far worse than "Hanna."
Our friends at Hollywood Crush report that Saoirse Ronan, who took on the title role in this year's awesome action flick "Hanna," is set to star in "The Host," based on a novel from "Twilight" author Stephenie Meyer. Ronan would play Melanie Ryder, one of the last survivors of the invading Souls, an alien species that can possess human bodies. Melanie comes under the possession of Wanderer, but the strong-willed teenager refuses to surrender her consciousness and the two form a bond in the process.
There's plenty more news out there today beyond Ronan's latest role. After the jump, we've got an update on "Kill Bin Laden" and a follow-up to our report on Christoph Waltz's status in Quentin Tarantino's new movie.
The face of the "Twilight" franchise could have, quite literally, looked entirely different a few years ago. After the success of the first "Twilight" film, director Chris Weitz was brought on board for the follow-up "New Moon." With Catherine Hardwicke's departure, there was talk of possible cast replacements, namely swapping out the original Jacob Black... Taylor Lautner!
Of course, today we'll be chatting with the one-and-only star suited to play Jacob when Taylor sits down with us for "MTV First: Taylor Lautner," a special in which the teen heartthrob will not only take questions from us, but the fans as well. The actor will also premiere the trailer for his latest movie, the action vehicle "Abduction."
Since the very beginning of "Twlight" right up until today, we've built some great memories with Taylor: his encounter with Les Grossman, comparing his abs to those of his co-star Robert Pattinson, when he learned about a Twi-hard's crazy tattoo and his itchy Jacob wig. But our all-time favorite Taylor moment came back in 2008 when the then-16-year-old humbly fought to keep his place in the "Twilight" saga.
When the rumors began flying that a then-scrawnier Taylor might get replaced by actor Michael Copon, Taylor kept calm and simply did what he needed to do to stay in the wolf pack.
2008 was a simpler time for Taylor Lautner. Still known primarily as the kid from "The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl 3-D," the biggest concern for the then-16-year-old (egads!) wasn't yet relentless paparazzi and hardcore fans, but rather, the itchiness of his "Twilight" wig.
But even now with his increasingly-hectic life, the star is taking time to join us this Wednesday (April 13) for "MTV First: Taylor Lautner" for an interview, in which he'll take questions from fans and premiere the trailer for his upcoming action flick, "Abduction."
We've come to have a lot of our own fond memories of Taylor over these past few years, so in preparation for his special, we've been counting down our top five favorite MTV moments with Taylor. Thurs far we've looked back at his Gross(man) encounter of a Les kind, as well as his his ab-off with co-star Robert Pattinson, and a run-in with an inked-up Twi-hard.
In our #2 moment, we hop in the sorta-way-back machine to the set of the very first "Twilight," where Taylor told us all about the fake hair that helped him transform to teen wolf Jacob Black.
Former studio chief-turned big time Hollywood producer Mark Canton has a lot on his plate at the moment, what with big films like "Immortals" and the soon-to-be-retitled "Xerxes" in the works. Not to mention a little adaptation of Conn Iggulden's popular "Emperor" book series.
When MTV News caught up with the busy man at WonderCon last weekend, he revealed a few exclusive details about his plans for the film.
"There are four books that we're doing with Nigel Sinclair's company, that are a take on the life of Julius Caesar and Brutus from the time they were 20," Caton explained. "And they have that thing that all 20-year-olds who watch MTV do, which is to believe that they can take over the world, which they did."
What ever happened to young fiction fans getting along? According to Twitter trends today, you are either #TeamTwilight, #TeamNarnia or #TeamHarryPotter. But what if we're all three?
In our opinion, each series definitely has their merits. With "Harry Potter" you have a great story about coming of age and having to conquer the unconquerable obstacles in your path, while in "Twilight" you have love in its purest form and in "Narnia" you have a tale of family that sticks together through thick and thin to do the best for the world around them. Can't we just love them all?!
There are plenty of reasons each of them could count as our favorites, and after the jump we detail why we feel that way. Then YOU can duke it out in the comments section and on Twitter!
When you're as famous and desired as Robert Pattinson, you're bound to run into some truly bizarre requests from time to time. But that doesn't make it any less strange or unsettling when you come into contact with "Twilight" lube.
All week long we've been counting down the days until "MTV First: Robert Pattinson," our special 30-minute interview on MTV and MTV.com with Rob where he'll premiere a clip from his upcoming movie "Water for Elephants" and field some questions from Josh Horowitz and fans, by bringing you our five favorite RPattz moments.
So far, we've reintroduced you to Rob's very first interview with MTV, his infamous near-kiss with "Twilight" co-star Kristen Stewart on stage at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards and his first appearance on the red carpet at the Academy Awards. But today, we're going into decidedly darker waters by exploring the weird world of glitter lube.
Some time has passed since the last "Highlander" remake update. Over a year, in fact – last we'd heard, "Fast Five" director Justin Lin was attached to direct with Neal Moritz producing for Summit Entertainment. "Iron Man" screenwriters Art Marcum and Matt Holloway were working on the script.
But as the old "Highlander" adage goes, there can be only one… and as of right now, it's neither Marcum nor Holloway who will be writing the screenplay.
Instead of sticking with the "Iron Man" duo, the "Highlander" screenwriting gig is staying in the Summit family. Heat Vision reports that "Twilight" writer Melissa Rosenberg is in negotiations for the remake, with Moritz and Lin both still attached to the project and Peter Davis also on board as a producer.
