Shadowhunters: Let's raise our seraph blades in unison and slash through the "August 23" box on our calendars—that release date is, woefully, obsolete.
Sony has confirmed to MTV News that the big-screen debut of "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" has been moved up two days to August 21, meaning you can get your Clary, Jace and Magnus fix a whole 48 hours earlier (and exactly three months from today)!
Remember when we told you that the delicious George Blagden had been tapped to narrate the latest audiobook in "The Bane Chronicles," the exciting companion series to "The Infernal Devices" that explores the life and times of one Magnus Bane? Well! Now you can hear all about that same thing from the actor's own (sensuous, full, ridiculously kissable) lips: just click to enjoy an EXCLUSIVE interview with George in which he talks about his first ever audiobook experience as the voice of "The Runaway Queen," what it was like to go back to France—and back in time—after his work on "Les Miserables," and what he likes best about Magnus Bane. It's just his voice, but daaaamn, what a voice. Prepare to go weak in the knees at the way he says "narrator." Also, "swashbuckling." Also, all the other words in the English language.
Said George, of his time in the soundbooth: "The recording process, quite honestly, has been terrifying in amongst being incredibly rewarding. It's kind of amazing that an author gets to let you take their work and give voice to these characters that they've created. You have a feeling of immense responsibility and you don't want to get it wrong."
The big-screen adaptation of Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl's bewitching "Beautiful Creatures" hits DVD and Blu-ray today, and in honor of all the Southern gothic intrigue and enchantment, Hollywood Crush has conjured up an EXCLUSIVE sneak peek at a featurette from the release.
And we recommend getting yourself to the nearest fainting couch ASAP, because this clip may cause uncontrollable swooning. Because it's all about luuuuuurve. More specifically, the love between human Ethan Wate and caster Lena Duchannes, and what it is exactly that draws them to one another (y'know, besides a Civil War-era entanglement that may or may not be doomed to repeat itself...)
Before you watch our EXCLUSIVE new book trailer for Sarah Dessen's "The Moon and More," be forewarned: It will give you the uncontrollable urge to drop everything, don a hoodie and spend the rest of your day frolicking on the beach with a cute member of your preferred sex. Okay? Okay. Just don't say we didn't warn you when you wake up with a sunburn, a hickey and, like, 10 pounds of sand in your underpants.
Not that we would know anything about that.
Anyway! This latest novel from the grand high empress of all things YA romance is exactly what you've been waiting for to heat your hot summer nights even hotter, as is readily apparent in its beach-frolic-inducing trailer.
Is it too early to crown our own favorite MTV kid Dylan O'Brien as the new king of sci-fi? Because we're totally seeing a trend emerge here! According to a report from Deadline—which comes fresh on the heels of his casting in the starring role in the much-anticipated "Maze Runner" movie—Dylan is now eyeballing another lead: the time-traveling teen protagonist of "Glimmer." Which he is eyeballing from behind the wheel of a spaceship with eyeballs made of lasers and nanobots! Because he is the king of sci-fi. Yes, he is.
"Glimmer," which is slated to start filming in January 2014, tells the story of several time-traveling teenagers who majorly screw things up for themselves when they change the course of history during one of their trips to the past. (Ugh, the butterfly effect—the worst, amirite?) And for Dylan, who's only just making the jump to feature films after his breakout role on "Teen Wolf," snagging the lead could be just the ticket to positioning himself as the next big thing in legit sci-fi action heroes...which is good, because Tom Cruise isn't going to be around forever, you know.
We've already offered up our review of Rick Yancey's latest YA novel, "The 5th Wave," but if you're not ready to take our word for it, perhaps you'll accept this bloody-good recommendation?
"Vampire Diaries" co-executive writer and producer Julie Plec is currently on vacay from The CW series, but she hopped on Twitter to give fans a sneak peek of her reading list. Good pick, Julie!
What book are you reading right now?
FROM SPLASH PAGE: Jennifer Lawrence spent the weekend ruling the red carpets at the Cannes International Film Festival, where she was joined by "Catching Fire" co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Sam Claflin in support of their upcoming release. But today, it was back to business as usual (sort of), as the 22-year-old got in a blue mood to reprise her role as Mystique in "X-Men: Days of Future Past."
Director Bryan Singer tweeted an image from set of Jennifer all suited up (yep, it's a suit this time!), and she's lookin' good!
Head on over to Splash Page for the full (blue) reveal!
If your preferred coping mechanism for the tragic end of all things "Twilight" has been to soothe yourself with the comforting fact that hey, at least the real-life Edward and Bella are still out there somewhere loving each other...well, you may want to take a seat for this next part, because we're about to ruin your life.
According to People, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are officially quits, really, for reals. The ever-ubiquitous "source" has told the magazine that the pair's relationship—which had long been one of the least-witnessed, most-speculated-about romances in Hollywood—has gone from "on the rocks" to "nonexistent" (although said source, perhaps in an effort to preempt the outraged shrieks from fans everywhere, has added that a reunion isn't entirely out of the question).
Today in bloody good news: The roster for St. Vladimir's is filling out oh so nicely, with a bevy of new casting announcements for "Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters"!
Deadline reports that the film adaptation of Richelle Mead's six-book series has added four new actors to its ensemble: Sarah Hyland, Gabriel Byrne, Joely Richardson and Dominic Sherwood.
Sarah, who's best known for her work on "Modern Family," is playing a supporting role as Natalie, friend to main characters Lissa and Rose. Also matriculating at St. Vlad's: Dominic, a relative newcomer to Hollywood who plays Lissa's romantic interest, the Moroi vampire Christian. Meanwhile, Gabriel will be filling the film's "sexy professor" void as Natalie's father and Academy leader Victor, and Joely—who we recently saw as an elusive Swede in "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"—has been cast as Tatiana, queen of the Moroi vampires.
Las Vegas rocked hard last night as the music industry's best and brightest convened at the MGM Grand Garden Arena for the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, and Sin City's anything-goes mentality certainly made its way into the stars' sartorial choices, as fashions ranged from show-girl-esque to emo rocker chick.
On the va-va-voom end of the spectrum was Selena Gomez, whose white Atelier Versace with fluorescent detailing called to mind a 21st century Carmen Miranda (sans the fruit salad headdress, of course). Meanwhile, BFF Taylor Swift—who was the big winner of the night with eight trophies—opted for something a bit glitzier: an electric blue Zuhair Murad long-sleeve mini-dress with peek-a-boo paneling just below the shoulders. And then there was Miley Cyrus, who not only dropped single details but continued to flaunt her punk side in a checkerboard Balmain jumpsuit. King me!
