MTV Movie Awards

MTV Movie Awards: Joss Whedon’s The Avengers took home the Movie of the Year prize at the MTV Movie Awards, with the director on hand to accept the trophy. The Avengers was also cited for Best Fight (with multiple combatants awarded) and Best Villain (Tom Hiddleston), while Silver Linings Playbook was recognized for Best Kiss and Best Male Performance (Bradley Cooper). Rebel Wilson was the biggest individual winner, named for Breakthrough Performance and Best Musical Moment for her work in Pitch Perfect. Jamie Foxx, Will Ferrell and Emma Watson also received special awards; Foxx and Samuel L. Jackson won the Best WTF Moment for a particularly gruesome scene in Django Unchained. [MTV]

Man of Steel Viral Video: Zod speaks! As voiced by Michael Shannon, General Zod delivers a calm but dire warning message to the people of Earth. Do we really want to suffer the “consequences” that the general promises? We have to wait until June 14 and watch Man of Steel in theaters to find out. [Cinema Blend]


X-Men: Days of Future Past: Director Bryan Singer has tweeted a final photo of Patrick Stewart from the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past -- the final photo before shooting begins, that is. He captioned the photo: “Picture before picture. Tomorrow it begins,” indicating that today (Monday) marks the first day of shooting on the movie, which is due in theaters on July 28, 2014.

X-Men: Days of Future Past

The Bling Ring Clip: As noted above, Emma Watson received a special award from MTV, the Trailblazer Award, which is well-timed for her (possibly) trailblazing work in Sofia Coppola’s upcoming The Bling Ring about young robbers. In a new clip, she and her friends rifle through a closed store and then try out a pole that is ideal for dancing. The movie will hit theaters on June 14. [MTV]
