By now, it's no secret that we're unabashed junkies for Andrea Cremer's wild high-fantasy world of witch wars, wolf warriors and weird creepy horrors that lurk in the dark. (See: various fawning posts from this very blog in which we reveal covers, peep excerpts and generally flail like unhinged nutbags over all things Knights of Conatus.) And if you, too, have been salivating for a fantasy fix after reading the first book in her prequel to the "Nightshade" series, then you'll like this next part: Hollywood Crush has an EXCLUSIVE sneak preview of the first two chapters of book No. 2, "Rise"!
In "Rift," the first book to explore the centuries-old conflict that eventually gave rise to "Nightshade" and the Witches' War, 16-year-old Ember journeyed to the Conatus headquarters to join the ranks of its fierce magical warriors. But in "Rise," Ember's training may all be for naught; evil has poisoned the order, and our heroine is on the run. Who will triumph in the epic battle to come? What horrors will she find lurking beneath the castle keep? And, most importantly, why are you still reading our nonsensical blathering when you could be reading "Rise"?! Yeah, that's what we thought. Do it.
It's probably every only child's secret fantasy: discovering a long-lost sibling whom mom or dad just—oops!—forgot tell you about. (It certainly was mine growing up!) But it's actually a reality for Chris Pine's character in the touching tale "People Like Us," as his father's dying wish leads him to a sister (Elizabeth Banks) he never knew existed.
With the film hitting DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow, Hollywood Crush nabbed an EXCLUSIVE clip, in which the stars discuss Chris'—how shall we say?—arrested development in the drama.
In tonight's episode of "The Next," Joe Jonas heads to La La Land, and not only does he mentor some talent while he's there, but he also plays Hollywood tour guide.
In this EXCLUSIVE look at the latest episode of The CW reality series, Joe stands atop a tour bus and goofs off. But the best part comes when some man shouts up at him, "You famous?" Joe, always the charmer that he is, simply responds, "No, I’m just a tour guide."
"I was actually a tour guide on a, like, star tour," Joe told MTV News about the moment, a photo of which he also posted on his Instagram. "It was really funny because it was like, I was having way too much fun with that microphone, and it kept cutting out so I was getting really frustrated, but somehow we caught the Hollywood sign in the background. It's a perfect photo."
The cast of "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," including Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller, stopped by MTV News to debut an EXCLUSIVE clip from their deeply moving film...and it did not disappoint. Not only were we introduced to the new crime-fighting duo of Slut and The Falcon (move over, Batman and Robin!), but we got to witness the stars' cute chemistry in action.
In the film, Charlie (played by Logan) is a soft-spoken loner until he's befriended by older students Patrick (Ezra) and Sam (Emma). It's during a post-game snack sesh that this clip picks up—a scene in which Charlie asks how long the two have been dating. Except, well, this is awkward. Patrick and Sam are most definitely not an item since they're step-siblings.
Countdown to Charlie crushing on Sam in 5, 4, 3...
It's been eight months since we first revealed the cover of "Rebel Heart," the long-awaited second book in Moira Young's amazing "Dust Lands" series about a young woman battling evil forces in the wastelands of a post-apocalyptic dystopia—which means that by now, you really should have read "Blood Red Road" in preparation for the release of book No. 2 next month. But if you were naughty and foolish and failed to crack the spine on this series despite our specific instructions to do so...well, here's your big chance to peep an EXCLUSIVE excerpt from the soon-to-be-released book, and maybe even get your hands on a paperback copy of "Blood Red Road" AND a pre-release ARC of "Rebel Heart." (Not that you deserve one, you disobedient buffoon.)
Our creepy tease of an excerpt finds us back on the road with the westward-bound Saba, who's being dogged by past misdeeds, remembered horrors and a ghostly dark rider who haunts her every step. And with miles to go before she sleeps, it's a safe bet that our exhausted heroine will battle evil forces, angry enemies and her own inner demons before she and her family can be assured of their safety.
Stars Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Jackson Rathbone, Elizabeth Reaser and Peter Facinelli may have done the honors at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, presenting the final trailer for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," but Kristen Stewart's Bella Swan-Cullen is arguably the biggest butt-kicker in this clip.
The 90-second teaser opens much like the one that preceded it, with a newly turned Bella sprinting through the forests of Forks. But what we didn't see before was the bloodsucker bagging herself a big cat, in grand fashion. Later on, Bella's new-found strength is utilized in a WWE-worthy maneuver in which Edward lifts and swings her into a bunch of waiting baddies.
A quick PSA for all you Crushers out there: Halloween is less than two months away, meaning you have mere weeks to secure a BBQ-stained tiara and mix a batch of Go-Go Juice for that winning Honey Boo Boo Child costume. So get on that.
One starlet who doesn't have to worry about her get-up is Victoria Justice, who flaunts Dorothy's signature "Wizard of Oz" gingham in the upcoming flick "Fun Size." Victoria plays a teen who's saddled with babysitting her little brother on the ookiest, spookiest night of the year. And, as you might imagine, things end up more trick-filled than treat-filled.
In anticipation of the movie's October 26 release, we have a few goodies to drop into your pillow case. First is an EXCLUSIVE clip, which finds Victoria using her feminine whiles to cajole a ride from nerd Roosevelt (played by Thomas Mann). And, yes, that's "Suburgatory" star Jane Levy in a leopard-print bra.
Click play on the video above to watch the clip!
The 2012 MTV Video Music Awards just got even sparkly-er.
As if performances by One Direction, Taylor Swift and Pink weren't enough, you can look forward to sinking your teeth into an EXCLUSIVE sneak peek at the final trailer for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," when you tune in tomorrow night.
As Sadie from "Awkward" would say: "You're welcome."
And because we understand there's nothing quite like instant gratification, we've assembled a teeny, tiny taste of the clip to come in the video above. Be sure to press play for a first look at the first look. Got it?
Drop everything, clear your calendar and take a comfy seat, members of the Literati: Five of the biggest YA titles of the fall are about to drop, and we've got the EXCLUSIVE trailer to tease them! And if you find yourself starting to gasp for air at all the bookish awesomeness in store—from mad science romance to Renaissance secrets to high fantasy royal intrigue—then hey, don't worry; there's a reason they're called "Breathless Reads"!
And that reason, is that whenever we watch this trailer, we hyperventilate into a paper bag until we pass out.
This trailer offers just a teensy peek at each of the five incredible titles coming this fall from Penguin, but even these scant glimpses at what's on the literary horizon are enough to get us panting—and with the release of these books staggered all the way through early December, you can count on keeping your reading calendar full all the way into 2013. Want to add them all to your shelf? Here's the rundown:
We *may* have attended our 10-year high-school reunion with our best gal pal from the sixth grade, but, then, not everyone is as sophisticated as we are. I mean, eat your hearts out married people, amiright!? Thankfully, nearly every relationship status Facebook could dream up gets its due in the upcoming comedy "10 Years."
The film boasts a jam-packed ensemble cast of Hollywood's hottest, including Channing Tatum, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Rosario Dawson, Ari Graynor, Justin Long and Chris Pratt. And if this post's lead and the film's title didn't already give it away, we follow the group as they return for their decade-in-the-making high school reunion and find out their classmates' fates.
