The zombie apocalypse is nigh!
...Okay. Sure. Mankind's total annihilation doesn't actually begin until February 1, 2013, but we're giving you a sneak peek of the bloody, brain-slurping carnage—wrapped in an ooey, gooey love story—to come. Now doesn't that sound nice?
Feast your eyes on the one-sheet for the upcoming horror-romance "Warm Bodies," starring Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer. Based on the novel by Isaac Marion, the story revolves around zombie R (Nicholas) who rescues a human girl (Teresa) from attack and ends up falling in love with her. Just the kind of dashing suitor you want to take home to Mom and Dad, right?
We've been riding the "Divergent" train ever since Veronica Roth's electrifying debut hit bookstore shelves last year, and now we're finally making our first stop in Casting Junction for the big-screen adaptation!
Deadline reports that "Secret Life of the American Teenager" star Shailene Woodley is in talks to play teen heroine Tris Prior.
For the uninitiated, "Divergent" takes place in a near-future Chicago in which society is divided into five factions, representing different virtues (eg. selflessness, courage, etc.). All 16-year-olds must take a test to determine whether they will join Abnegation, Erudite, Dauntless, Amity or Candor. The second novel in Veronica's series, "Insurgent," debuted May 2012.
You've read all the books, you've seen all the movies, and come November 16th, you'll be ready and raring at a midnight showing wearing your best Team Edward T-shirt, a discreet smearing of vampire body glitter and a down-to-the-last-rhinestone replica of Bella Swan's giant engagement ring. You, sir, are ready for the end! And so, with the stage fully set for the mind-blowing final chapter of the "Twilight" story, there's just one thing left for fans to do on behalf of their beloved saga while they wait out the long final weeks til the release of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2":
GET READY TO RUMBLE.
Yep, that's right: In honor of the end of all things "Twilight," we're kicking off a single-elimination tournament in which every last character from the franchise goes head-to-head for supremacy amongst the fans—and brace yourselves for a long competition, because between the vampire covens, the shirtless wolfpack, the Cullen family and the hapless humans of Forks, there are a lot of dogs in this fight. (Not to mention that Charlie's mustache may or may not be competing in its own category.) (Okay, it's not.) (BUT WE DON'T KNOW WHY.)
If there's one thing we learned about "Vampire Diaries" star Nina Dobrev from reading her just-released cover story in November's Self magazine, it's that girl leads a surprisingly balanced life. Between shooting her hit CW series, fostering a burgeoning film career and getting in snuggle time with co-star sweetheart Ian Somerhalder, Nina manages to keep her body—and mind—sound. Her secret?
"I want to keep growing, so I make vision boards that say things like, 'Learn. Excel. Succeed,'" Nina told the magazine. "Using my imagination, spelling out what I want to achieve and creating a reminder of those things helps me move forward."
Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with staff members. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that's why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.
Brace yourself for the frantic, delighted shrieking of "Hunger Games" fans everywhere: Jennifer Lawrence and company have been photographed in Atlanta, in costume on, the set of "Catching Fire." A few long-distance photos caught Jennifer (and co-star Josh Hutcherson) milling about in what looks like it might be an early scene from Katniss and Peeta's tour of the Districts.
Jennifer was caught in the middle of a calm moment, waiting for someone to call "Action!" and wearing a peculiar sleeveless outfit that's no doubt quite the fashion statement in post-war Panem. (And hey, it's better than the tacky Stormtrooper rip-offs that the Peacekeepers are wearing. Honestly, guys, stop trying to make fetch happen. IT'S NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN.)
Bloody hell! The wait is finally over! "The Vampire Diaries" returns to our oh-so lonely television sets tonight, with a highly anticipated premiere that will deliver on the promise: "This season, everything will change." And how could it not? With Elena joining the growing ranks of Mystic Falls' Society for the Undead and Klaus clandestinely inhabiting Tyler's body, ish is getting crazier than ever before. (How is that even possible!?)
We've already recapped the five most important things you must remember about season three before sitting down to watch tonight's season four premiere, but we have another goodie for you to sink your teeth into. We recently visited the series' Atlanta set, where we chatted all things bloodsucking with the stars. Of course, they were more than happy to offer up the goods, especially when we asked each what their character's greatest season four challenge will be.
Unsurprisingly, Ian Somerhalder had the best zinger of the bunch as far as his devilish Damon Salvatore was concerned: "Not getting killed and getting laid. That's about it."
It's real, and it's spectacular: the movie adaptation of Cassandra Clare's "Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" began shooting in Toronto this summer, marking the start of production on one of the most exciting book-to-film deals ever to exist. And because we are all up in the "City of Bones" business, MTV News took a trip to the set for a chat with the cast and a behind-the-scenes peek at a moment from the books that fans will surely recognize.
You do recognize it, right? That's Clary, played by Lily Collins, attending a seriously kickin' house party for the supernatural set. (Look closely, and you may see a faerie hooking up with a satyr! ...No, okay, we made that up. But still, it could totally happen!) And even from this little glimpse into the inner "City of Bones," it's clear that the filmmakers are taking great care to create a distinctive world that really captures the feel of the books.
What magic is this? Oh, just an EXCLUSIVE look at the upcoming adaptation of Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl's Southern gothic "Beautiful Creatures"!
If the recently released trailer left you wanting more of Lena Duchannes and her gifted family, well, you're in luck. Casters Lena, Ridley (Emmy Rossum) and Macon (Jeremy Irons) are the focus in this featurette that takes us deeper into Gatlin County. In fact, we get to hear Mr. Irons as Uncle Macon for the first time, after he sauntered around in silence throughout the teaser trailer.
The clip is full of all kinds of treats, including commentary from director Richard LaGravenese, Viola Davis, Emma Thompson and more, so be sure to click play to take a closer look at "Beautiful Creatures"!
In case you missed it, the full track listing for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" soundtrack dropped yesterday, and as any fangirl worth her O-negative could have guessed, the album is a mix of high-profile artists (Green Day), indie acts (A Boy and His Kite) and previous players (Christina Perri). Then there's Nikki Reed.
The "Twilight" actress and husband, former "American Idol" contestant Paul McDonald, will contribute the song "All I've Ever Needed" to the album. The actress took to Twitter yesterday to thank fans for their support: "We worked so hard! It's so exciting!" she wrote.
Of course, Nikki isn't the first saga star to bite into one of the movie's soundtracks. That honor goes to everyone's favorite brooding bloodsucker Robert Pattinson, who had not one but two numbers featured in the first installment.
With just six weeks to go before "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" finally makes its way into theaters, audiences are starting to get a little antsy in the pantsy for some hot Volturi-on-vampire action and the long-awaited conclusion to our favorite supernatural romance. The bad news is, you've still gotta wait 'til November 16 to enjoy the fifth and final film. The good news is...well, look! Pretty, pretty pictures! Which you really should stop sobbing and gnawing on the woodwork long enough to look at, honestly, we know you're dying for more "Twilight" but this is taking it way too far.
Our updated gallery of stills from the film features never-before-seen—or at least, never-before-seen from THIS ANGLE—shots of the cast in action, with notable inclusions such as Bella's arm-wrestling competition with Emmett, the newlywed Cullens doing some forested surveillance, Renesmee meeting Charlie, and, of course, two distinct photos of the masterpiece that is Charlie's mustache. (Mark our words: this will be the year that the mustache wins an Oscar. Maybe even a Lifetime Achievement Award. Someone must recognize its greatness!)
