Right on schedule to spike your excitement for the August release of "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," a new, international trailer for the hotly-anticipated movie is here (via MSN)—so that the whole entire world can watch it and go squeeeeeeeee together! Are you ready to squee? You didn't leave your squee at home today, did you? No? GOOD.
Admittedly, there's nothing in this latest peek at the film that hasn't been teased before, but that's okay; it's not like we could ever get tired of seeing what's in store for this much-buzzed-about adaptation of Cassandra Clare's awesome urban fantasy series about a league of Shadowhunters, the angel-human hybrids responsible for cleansing the world of demons...or of seeing Jamie Campbell Bower as the rune-tattooed, blade-wielding, heart-melting slayer Jace Wayland. Yum. Squeee.
FROM MTV NEWS: Hit-Girl is hitting it again in "Kick-Ass 2," the upcoming sequel to the 2010 super-hero movie, and MTV News was lucky enough to get an EXCLUSIVE invitation to the set! We witnessed all manner of ass-kickery, to be sure, but as star Chloe Grace Moretz told us, this second installment (out August 16) has plenty of pathos too.
"You see this new evolution of Mindy Macready and Dave Lizewski, and you see this amazing relationship that they get together with," the actress teased. "It's a beautiful story. There's even more heart to it than there was in the last one."
Head over to MTV News for the full story from the 'Kick-Ass 2' set!
If the ad campaign for the sixth season of HBO's "True Blood" has taught us anything, it's that no one lives forever—not even hot immortal bloodsuckers. Now, how that tagline will play out in the upcoming episodes—in which vampires and humans are more at odds than they've been since the undead's coming out—remains to be seen. But we do know a few things about the season debut, thanks in part to the cast, whom we spoke with earlier this week at their series' premiere party.
For one thing, according to star Stephen Moyer, the episode picks up right where season five left off—with Bill transforming into the menacing, blood-bathed "Billith."
"I like that kind of story telling where it unfolds for the audience at the same time as it unfolds for the character," Stephen said of his mysterious metamorphosis. "Sometimes it's great because they'll be a step ahead. They'll be further ahead than he is, and he has to find that out for himself. In terms of him knowing what he is, he doesn't."
How do you pronounce the surname of that tall drink of water who plays werewolf Alcide Harveaux on HBO's "True Blood"? If it sounds anything like "Man Jell-O" or "Mangy Yellow," well, you're doing it wrong. But that's okay! Because the man himself, Mr. Joe Manganiello, is here to help.
In this week's installment of After Hours we present you with "Joe Manganiello's Guide to Pronouncing F---ed Up Celebrity Names." Because how else would you know how to properly articulate tongue-twisters like "Tom Cruise" and "Brad Pitt"?
Get clickin' to learn all of Joe's linguistic lessons. (Which sounds a lot dirtier than it actually is. Unfortunately.)
Demi Lovato has always been an open book when it comes to sharing the ups and downs of her life. But the singer is letting fans delve deeper into her life in the just-released e-book, "Demi," which serves as a companion piece to her album of the same name.
The e-book chronicles the 20-year-old's career and takes Lovatics inside the making of Demi, which dropped last month. "I wrote about personal experiences and became more candid about them," she says in a video clip featured in the release. "I also feel like my lyrics were more vulnerable, and I'm just really proud of how honest I was in this album."
What happens after you park your illustrious butt on the Throne of Glass? You wear the Crown of Midnight, of course! Which is where we're at now in Sarah J. Maas' epic series about a young assassin in search of her destiny, and why we're so super-excited to bring you the EXCLUSIVE first look at the trailer for "Crown of Midnight," the next book in line.
After making her action-packed debut in "Throne of Glass," Celaena has traded a life of hard labor in the kingdom's salt mines for a place in the palace—and the coveted title of royal assassin. But despite her position at the king's side, her loyalties lie elsewhere...and as powerful forces gather on the horizon, her next assignment might be the one that forces her to make a terrible choice.
There's no place like...the makeup chair? That is, if you're looking to transform from a comely young woman into a wicked witch green with envy, which is exactly what actress Mila Kunis did for her role in "Oz the Great and Powerful," hitting DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow. In celebration of the fantasy film's home release, MTV News is giving you an EXCLUSIVE, behind-the-scenes look at Mila's makeover.
Surprisingly, with all of the new-fangled cosmetic technologies at their disposal, the team (led by Academy Award nominee Howard Berger), relied on retro materials—foam!—to create the Wicked Witch of the West's creepy countenance.
FROM MTV NEWS: Henry Cavill isn't the only looker stepping into the iconic role of Superman in Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" (out Friday). Meet 14-year-old cutie-pie Dylan Sprayberry, who plays the teenage version of Clark Kent. (You may recognize the actor from another younger-version turn: He portrayed a kiddie Cooper Anderson on an episode of "Glee.")
With all of the secrecy surrounding the superhero flick, it should come as little surprise that the audition process included a smidge of subterfuge.
"I probably went in about four or five times for the audition and they were keeping everything really under wraps," Dylan recalled. "They didn't want anyone to know what it was for, they wouldn't tell me anything. I did a monologue from 'Stand By Me' ... [When] I got the third callback and I found out that it was going to be for Superman, and then they started pairing me up with younger versions, and that's when I met Zack and Deborah Snyder. I auditioned for the bully actually as well, but I didn't really fit that one as much. But I kept going back in a few times just to match up and make sure that I look like Henry."

With just a week to go before the season six premiere of "True Blood," it's not like fans really needed to be whipped into a further state of frenzied excitement for TV's return to Bon Temps; we are already chewing on our hands and climbing the walls and have renamed all our cats "Eric Northman" in anticipation of the big event. But because HBO loves to taunt its vampire-craving audience right up until the last possible moment, a new trailer for the upcoming season has debuted with some tasty tidbits for us all to chew on.
For one: The tenuous peace between humans and vampires is breaking down in the wake of the Authority's overthrow, and the Tru Blood factories have been bombed into oblivious, which means that we can probably expect a lot of biting this season. Just look at all the fangs in this trailer! Eric, Bill, Pam, Jessica—they're all flashing their chompers and/or getting ready to chow down on various human necks! Eeeeee! Also, for anyone who wondered whether Bill might still be more or less the same rule-abiding vampire gentleman he's always been, despite having slurped down a mega-serving of the Blood of Lilith and dissolved into a pile of goo last season...nope. The new Bill barges into houses uninvited and watches unscathed as the sun comes up, and probably also steals candy from children and leaves the toilet seat up. What kind of madness is this?
FROM MTV NEWS: Starlets Ariana Grande and Jennette McCurdy are returning to TV this weekend with the "Victorious"/"iCarly" spin-off, "Sam & Cat." Now, if you're familiar with the dynamic duo, you know that in addition to acting, the two have singing as skill on their resumes as well. So will there be tunes aplenty on their new series?
"We didn't want to sing on the show. We had the option," Ariana told MTV News. "I think we just wanted to do like a TV show because I feel like since 'Hannah Montana,' it's been so cool for kid's shows to be musically driven. I don't think there's a show for kids out there now that doesn't have music."
"Sam & Cat" premieres on Saturday at 8 p.m. ET on Nick.
