mtv Hollywood Crush is moving! come with us to mtv news »

Have you ever wanted to see how your faerie sausage gets made? ...Wait, that came out wrong. (Really wrong. OH GOD, FAERIE SAUSAGE. Who would eat such a thing?!) Anyway! Starting over! Would you, by any chance, like to see a fancy time-lapse depiction of a character from the upcoming manga adaptation of Julie Kagawa's "The Iron King"? If so, then we've got an amazing treat for you: the EXCLUSIVE debut of an image and video that shows the step-by-step creation of one of the series famous Fey!

Everybody, meet Ash: He's got pointy ears, a knowing smirk and a very complicated haircut that probably cost a lot of money in a Japanese salon. And he's just one of the citizens of the Iron Realm whose adventures are depicted in gorgeous detail in the "Iron King" graphic novel from Bluewater Productions. There will be four books in all, and fans can get in on the creation of the comics by contributing to the fundraising campaign at IndieGogo, where handmade sculptures and cameo roles in the books themselves are up for grabs for contributors.

It's been nearly five years since we first stumbled into the haunted realm of Perdido Beach, California, where everyone over the age of 13 has mysteriously vanished, leaving the town's children behind to search for answers, reinvent society and develop mysterious supernatural abilities with no rhyme or reason behind them. And after six books' worth of battles, adventures and ever-deepening intrigue, Michael Grant's epic "Gone" series is about to conclude...and we've got the EXCLUSIVE book trailer to tease the stunning finale!

What's in store when "Light" hits shelves in April? We can't say for sure —the reports coming out of the Fallout Alley Youth Zone are all unconfirmed, after all—but look, let's be real, that kid definitely has a big orange tentacle where his arm is supposed to be.

They can take our lives, but they can never take our FREEEEEDOM ... to make-out in the rain. That's the top-line lesson we're gleaning from a new, EXCLUSIVE clip from the upcoming post-apocalyptic romance "The Host," out March 29.

Set to the strains of Imagine Dragon's "Radioactive" (a track you should recognize from the trailer), we meet Melanie Stryder (played by Saoirse Ronan), her brother Jamie Stryder (played by Chandler Canterbury) and her boyfriend Jared Howe (played by Max Irons)— a few of the remaining people on Earth after an invading race commandeered human bodies for their own use. But it's not all bad because there's still love. (And by "love" we mean "steamy, steamy kisses.")

Be forewarned, little superstars: After watching the official, EXCLUSIVE debut of the new "Kick-Ass 2" red band trailer, you will enter an action-inspired fugue state in which you want to punch All The Things while yelling All The Bad Words. So get ready, get set and get anything breakable (like heirloom ceramics or, say, your cat) out of immediate reach...and then, if you're feeling powerful, click play. Just don't say we didn't warn you. (Warning: NSFW)

This long-awaited sequel to the first "Kick-Ass" film finds all the original ass-kickers back in action, along with a few new faces for guaranteed maximum ass-kickage. The green-suited Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and the wild-wigged Hit Girl (Chloƫ Grace Moretz) are still on the job, training hard by day and keeping their city safe by night. And this time around, they're joined by the slightly-unhinged but still-highly-committed Colonel Stars and Stripes (because Captain America was taken, we're guessing), played by the almost unrecognizably-grizzled Jim Carrey in a camouflage jumpsuit. And the heroes are facing a new threat: Red Mist, now reborn as a super villain with a hilarious (but sadly unprintable) name. Bullets will fly! Mettle will be tested! And yes, oh yes, ass will be kicked.

This Song Will Save Your LifeAre you ready to get some religion...in the church of catchy hooks, sick beats and sweet bass lines? We hope so! 'Cause we've got your holy book hookup right here: It's the EXCLUSIVE cover reveal for Leila Sales' new YA novel, "This Song Will Save Your Life." It's the touching story of a troubled outsider who's sure she'll be walking alone all her life...until she discovers friendship in a band full of musical misfits and personal fulfillment in the exquisite art of DJing.

Considering its content, it's no surprise that this book's beautiful cover art has a musical motif—and a pair of super-shiny headphones that we are officially coveting. Plus, psssst! If you look extra-close, you might catch a subliminal message about what lies at the heart of "This Song Will Save Your Life" (Hint: follow the pink font and see what you get.)

Finnick OdairHold on to your tridents, Finnick fans! As part of Lionsgate's roll out of super-sumptuous Capitol Portraits featuring our favorite "Catching Fire" crew members, Hollywood Crush has the distinct pleasure of unveiling the visage of District 4's hunkiest of hunks (played by actor Sam Claflin)! The only thing that could make this EXCLUSIVE even better? If Finnick were fitted in his barely-there gold fishnet costume from the Tribute Parade. But all in due time.

And that's not to say the outfit featured here doesn't reflect the tribute's aquatic roots. In fact, there's something positively pirate-esque about Finnick's unbuttoned-down-to-there linen shirt, flouncy evergreen pants and lace-up boots. Let's just say, he's shivering our timbers something good.

Click past the jump to see the full Capitol Portrait!

And you've likely seen him hard at work in the studio, thanks to our exclusive behind-the-scenes peek. And now the time has finally come for you to hear the fruits of his labor!

Hollywood Crush has gotten its lace-gloved fingers on an audiobook excerpt of the Prologue and Chapter 1, introduced by Daniel himself. So if you've ever dreamed of Will Herondale reading you a bedtime story, click play and snuggle up with your pillow and blankie. (Though we don't suggest doing so at your desk...)

An imagined dialogue between Hollywood Crush and actress Diane Kruger:

Hollywood Crush: Hi, Diane Kruger. My, what big eyes you have!

Diane Kruger: The better to seek you with, my dear Hollywood Crush.

Hollywood Crush: AAGGGHHHHHH! *runs screaming into the desert wasteland*

End scene

If this dramatization and the image to the right didn't give it away, Hollywood Crush got its chilly little fingers on an EXCLUSIVE character poster from "The Host," featuring Diane as Melanie/Wanderer's relentless pursuer, The Seeker. (See the full one-sheet after the jump!)

If you've been following the dystopian drama of Lauren DeStefano's "Chemical Garden" trilogy, then you know that time is running out for Rhine. It's only a matter of time before the disease that strikes all young people at the tender age of 20 arrives to claim her life, and in the meantime, everything has gone straight to hell in a hand basket: Her friends are scattered, her heart is torn, and the seeds of violent revolution are taking root in her society's underground. What is she going to do?!! Well, hey, here might be a hint: We've got the EXCLUSIVE debut of the book trailer for "Sever," the third and final installment of this thrilling series, right here. RIGHT NOW.

In it, we see Rhine—rosy-cheeked and substantially less haunted-looking than she's been in previous incarnations—wandering languidly through a desolate indoor landscape in search of answers, and wearing (ooooh!) a really great dress. And if you're looking for clues as to what's coming in the thrilling conclusion to this trilogy, you might want to pay close attention to the possible symbolism of those green apples, that empty cage, a spinning globe of the world as it was in the days before humanity nearly eradicated itself. ("Chemical Garden" conspiracy theorists, that last one could be the geography-related Easter egg you've been waiting for.)

Does "Mortal Instruments" author Cassandra Clare ever sleep? Like, for serious? Between penning two (soon to be three!) best-selling series, consulting on the big-screen adaptation of "City of Bones," teaming with friend Holly Black for a middle-grade novel, and conceiving a Magnus Bane-focused spin-off, multitasking Cassie never seems to rest. (If they weren't hazardous to mere mortals, we'd guess she was juiced up by a bevy of anti-exhaustion runes.)

Now, ON TOP OF ALL THAT, Ms. Clare has eked out time to compile "The Shadowhunter's Codex" with the help of husband Joshua Lewis. And guess what! We have your EXCLUSIVE first look at the angelic cover!
