Let the movie madness commence! The MTV Movie Awards are coming up, that magical evening wherein we (with the help of hostess extraordinaire Rebel Wilson!) hand out our coveted Golden Popcorns to all the entertainers who wowed us with their talents in 2012. And heralding the arrival of our awards ceremony is a six-week celebration of all things cinematic, with opportunities to watch the nominated films, enjoy exclusive interviews and peep some never-before-seen clips of this year's most anticipated blockbusters-to-be.
After the 2013 MTV Movie Awards Nominations Spectacular (which you've already marked on your calendar in indelible pink ink circled by hearts and stars and such, of course), we'll kick off a special block of programming: "Rated MTV: Movie Awards Edition" will be hosted by our own Josh Horowitz and feature special content on-air and online, all for the purpose of getting you pumped for the MTV Movie Awards ceremony on April 14 at 9 p.m. ET. We'll have special appearances by Logan Lerman, Olivia Wilde and the "Spring Breakers" quartet of Selena Gomez, Rachel Korine, Ashley Benson, and Vanessa Hudgens, all of whom will offer up some inside dish on their upcoming films—and during the final week before the show, Sneak Peek Week returns with select screenings and exclusive clips from all the films you can't wait to see this summer.
It's been a week for film recommendations. Just yesterday, "Twilight" actress Ashley Greene offered up an oldie but goodie, and today, "Glee" star Lea Michele has a brand new pick for you.
The actress enthusiastically took to Twitter to give kudos to friend Skylar Astin's hard-partying "21 and Over." The film also stars Justin Chon and Miles Teller, and is out now.
If you're planning on climbing down the beanstalk and into your local cineplex for a showing of this weekend's fairy-tale thriller "Jack the Giant Slayer," you will mostly surely be in for a visual spectacular. But don't let all those monstrous behemoths distract you from one of the film's most awe-inspiring aspects: Ewan McGregor's hair.
Seriously, though. When we left a recent screening with our co-workers, we spent at least five blocks discussing his amazing locks: lush with perfectly placed highlights. And it was a fact that we couldn't keep to ourselves when confronted with Mr. McGregor at the film's junket in jolly ol' England.
FROM MTV NEWS: Magical, indeed!
Former "Harry Potter" co-stars Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe have somehow managed to conjure casting news on the very same day! The Hogwarts graduates are in talk for separate films, though they both have literary back stories.

There are no two films we’d rather spend our summer vacation with than "The Bling Ring" and "The Spectacular Now." Lucky for us, we’ll be able to do so.
Sofia Coppola's based-on-true-events flick, "The Bling Ring," which stars Emma Watson, has got an official date picked out in June. It opens June 14, according to The Wrap. The film is based on Nancy Jo Sales’ Vanity Fair article “The Suspects Wore Louboutins,” and is about a group of teenagers who stole from Hollywood A-listers like Lindsay Lohan, Orlando Bloom, Paris Hilton and Rachel Bilson.
Sure, "The Twilight Saga" came to a cinematic conclusion in November with the premiere of "Breaking Dawn - Part 2," but the sun hasn't set on the franchise just yet. There's still the DVD/Blu-ray release, after all! One more opportunity for us to chat up our favorite saga stars about the vampire romance that will live eternal.
As such, we placed a call to actress Nikki Reed to talk about her most memorable moment on set, future "Twilight" collaborations and whether Rosalie is left-handed. Check out part one of our interview after the jump, and be sure to come back tomorrow for part two!
Nicholas Hoult and Eleanor Tomlinson were all dressed up last night for the big premiere of "Jack the Giant Slayer"—and here's hoping the giants in question are all good and slayed (slain? slew?), because Eleanor's lovely dress is frankly much too glam and gorgeous to be running around wielding swords and busting enormous heads in.
The cinematic take on everyone's favorite fairytale about magic beans, gullible teens and huge angry creatures who live on a floating sky island yelling "Fee! Fi! Fo! Fum!" at invaders will hit theaters widespread on Friday, and most of its major players—human and giant alike—were out to celebrate its release at the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood.
If you've been chewing your fingernails to itty-bitty bloody shreds in anticipation of the announcement of this year's MTV Movie Awards nominations...keep on chewing, my friend, because we're not quite there yet. Why? Because this year, for the first time ever, we'll be announcing the 2013 contenders during our very own live 2013 MTV Movie Awards Nominations Spectacular!
So mark your calendars: On Tuesday, March 5, at 7:58 p.m. ET, MTV's Josh Horowitz will be joined on-air by Movie Awards star Rebel Wilson to reveal the Movie of the Year nominees. And then, it's off to MTV.com for a half-hour livestream! And then, the rest of the nominees list will be announced, including not only classic favorites like "Best Kiss" and "Best Fight", but also new-fangled categories like "Best Shirtless Performance” and “Best Musical Moment"! And...actually, you should stop chewing now, before you accidentally eat your own fingers in all the excitement.
FROM MTV MOVIES BLOG: With spring break coming up any day now, it's very important that we start talking about what to bring on our awesome road trip to the sunny shores of Miami Beach! And with "Spring Breakers" approaching, there might be a few, er, unconventional items on your packing list...as you can clearly see in the new poster, now up on MTV Movies Blog, that promotes this sleazy, sexy, ultraviolent romp through delinquent ladyland. There's the usual items, of course: jorts, sneakers, sunnies and lipgloss in various shades of pastel. But flick your eyeballs up, and you'll see all the must-have accessories that every stylish criminal needs! Guns, drugs, pills, and lollipops: a veritable buffet of badness. (It's just a good thing these girls are driving, not flying; the contents of this bag would make your average TSA officer pee in his pants.)

And mark your calendars for a spring break getaway: "Spring Breakers" hits theaters in NYC and L.A. on March 15, going wide on March 22.
Mundanes: We have five words that will likely send you into a fit of hysterics not even a calming rune could soothe. Are you ready? (Don't say we didn't warn you.) Here they be:
Magnus Bane. In his boxers.
It's true! It's so gloriously true! When MTV News' Josh Horowitz stopped by the set of "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" last year to chat up the cast about the big-screen adaptation of Cassandra Clare's best-selling novel, he found actor Godfrey Gao in a curious state of undress.
"It's really cold," Godfrey—done up in Magnus' signature makeup, a velvet blazer and sans pants—said. "At first, I was like, 'All right, I thought this party was going to be an indoor mansion with a lot of lights and chandeliers like you see in back.' Turns out, it's outside, and it's actually, I think, 11 degrees Celsius [51 degrees Fahrenheit], so I'm just hanging out with my boxers on and everyone sees ... I have great legs. But it's very fun to play Magnus Bane, as you can see."
Oh, we can see, Godfrey. We can see.
