If you've been unwittingly mesmerized by a "Beautiful Bastard" and completely charmed by a "Beautiful Stranger," then you'll want to listen up, because we've got some EXCLUSIVE news regarding Christina Lauren's follow-up, due October 2013. Namely, its name!
The "Beautiful" moniker for the third installment of their steamy, sexy series is... "Beautiful Player."
What's more, we've also got the titles of the authors' three e-novellas: "Beautiful Bitch" (to be released June 2013), "Beautiful Bombshell" (to be released September 2013) and "Beautiful Beginning" (to be released November 2013).
Of course, with news like this we had to get Christina Lauren (otherwise known as the writing team of Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings) on the phone to discuss all the pertinent (and naughty!) details, including the main players in "Beautiful Player," the film adaptation of "Beautiful Bastard" and how much heat to expect from their debut YA novel. Check out the interview after the jump!
When it comes to casting a major Hollywood production, standard operating procedure is to secure a lead first, then build a supporting cast around him or her. So it seemed curious that for the big-screen adaptation of James Dashner's "The Maze Runner," everyone but the protagonist was being announced. And now, that's been remedied. Meet your Thomas: "Teen Wolf" actor Dylan O'Brien.
"The Maze Runner"—another dark dystopian—follows Thomas as he awakens in an elevator with no memories of his previous life. The lift dumps him in "the Glade," where a group of teenage boys live, penned in by walls and a surrounding maze. Already set to run the cinematic labyrinth: Will Poulter, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Aml Ameen and Kaya Scodelario.
Break out your pitch pipe: A sequel to everyone's favorite a cappella comedy has been greenlit by Universal Pictures.
Just days after Rebel Wilson and co-stars Skylar Astin, Anna Camp, Ester Dean, Alexis Knapp, Hana Mae Lee, Ben Platt, Brittany Snow and Utkarsh Ambudkar pitch-slapped us with a brand-new musical mash-up at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, the studio behind "Pitch Perfect" has announced that a cinematic follow-up is slated for 2015.
Now, there's no word yet which stars will return for "Pitch Perfect 2," but with writer Kay Cannon in place, we have high hopes that this flick will be as aca-awesome as the first. But just in case you're a bit dubious, here are the Barden Bellas to demonstrate how you should (and shouldn't) react to this news.
Jenna Hamilton will discover just how much change blows when the third season of MTV's "Awkward" premieres tonight at 10 p.m.
We caught up with the cast, including Ashley Rickards (Jenna), Jillian Rose Reed (Tamara) and Brett Davern (Jake) at this weekend's MTV Movie Awards, and they were ready, willing and able to spill some scoop on what we can expect from their characters in the upcoming episodes.
"Jenna's going to go to a whole new level of dark, and I am so excited to play it as an actress," Ashley said. "I think the fans will just love it."
But if anyone knows what fans will love, it's Jillian and Brett, who offered the most titillating tidbits to tease eager viewers.
Of course "Glee" actress Naya Rivera wasn't nervous about posing nude for Allure's "Look Better Naked" issue.
"I'm excited to see it—and it's going to be available to the world," she enthused to the magazine.
The actress was one of four—including Jennifer Morrison, Clare Bowen and Christa Miller—to take it all off for the annual issue.
Rumors of Emma Watson entering Christian's Red Room of Pain as Anastasia Steele in the big-screen adaptation of "Fifty Shades of Grey" have persisted for months (despite the actress' recent Twitter denial). But even we were surprised by Jonah Hill's announcement during Sunday's MTV Movie Awards.
While feting the actress for her Trailblazer honor, the actor dropped this bit of casting news:
"Emma Watson is such a beautiful, lovely, talented, hard-working person. I'm very appreciative to be in her life. That's why I want to take this opportunity to announce officially that we will be starring in the screen adaptation of 'Fifty Shades of Grey.'"
Consider the spark of rebellion lit.
The teaser trailer for "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire"—introduced by star Liam Hemsworth—blazed onto the scene Sunday night during the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.
The nearly two-and-a-half minute clip opens with a familiar scene—the sneak peek of Katniss and Peeta taking to the Justice Building stage during their Victory Tour stop in District 11, where a deadly riot ensues. From there, director Francis Lawrence takes us behind-the-scenes of the Capitol, as President Snow and new Gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee (R.I.P. Seneca Crane's beard) are conspiring.
If, by some chance, you haven't heard the aca-awesome news, the cast of "Pitch Perfect"— including MTV Movie Awards host Rebel Wilson, Skylar Astin, Anna Camp, Ester Dean, Alexis Knapp, Hana Mae Lee, Ben Platt, Brittany Snow and Utkarsh Ambudkar—are reuniting to pitch slap the hell out of Sunday's ceremony (airing live at 9 p.m. ET).
So what will we see when the Barden Bellas and Treblemakers take the stage during the opening act? Well, if Skylar, Ester, Hanna Mae and Utkarsh are to be believed, all of the following: dinosaurs, fire people, molten lava, the Blue Men Group, gas and Blue Ivy. Pretty impressive, huh?
Emma Watson's been perfecting her American accent for years now, not only through film roles like "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," but also as part of MTV's recurring web feature "American Talk," in which our own Josh Horowitz forces unsuspecting Brits to recite phrases like "booyah" and "the Olive Garden" in their best Yankee inflection. So, of course, when the actress and her "Bling Ring" co-stars stopped by last night for the final flourish of our Sneak Peek Week leading up to Sunday's MTV Movie Awards, we just had to give Emma one more pop quiz.
In her flick due June 14, Emma plays one of several bandits who burgle the homes of celebrities like Paris Hilton and Rachel Bilson. So with her character's SoCal roots, we gave Emma what has to be the most thoroughly L.A.-esque reading ever—one that may or may not involve Channing Tatum.
You may want to avert your eyes, Hermione: Your alter ego is being a very bad girl.
Emma Watson and her "Bling Ring" co-stars Katie Chang, Israel Broussard, Taissa Farmiga and Claire Julien stopped by MTV last night for the final installment of our Sneak Peek Week, leading up to Sunday's Movie Awards, and instead of pilfering our pockets they actually gifted us with something invaluable: an EXCLUSIVE clip from their upcoming film!
In this sneak peek from the June 14 release, we see the young bandits making themselves comfortable in an unsuspecting celebrity's walk-in closet, swooning over her sparkly frocks and trying on her extravagant furs. But the real jaw-dropper happens in the clip's closing moments as Emma's Nicki takes a pass at stripper pole. It's magical, indeed.
