The 2012 MTV Movie Awards are approaching fast, people! And with the anticipation building, the announcements are starting to roll in. Emma Watson helped break the news that she’ll be on hand during the pre-show with co-stars Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller to debut the first official “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” trailer. Now we’re happy to announce that the second annual MTV Sneak Peek Week will arrive at 5 Towers on Universal CityWalk in preparation for the big show!
Beginning Tuesday, May 29 through Friday, June 1, MTV will screen some of this summer’s hottest films for a selection of very lucky fans. The lineup includes “Snow White and the Huntsman,” “Magic Mike” and more. But don’t fret, readers — we didn’t forget about you at home. During the weeklong festivities you can catch some of the castmembers from each film on MTV at 11 p.m. ET to introduce an exclusive clip from their movie! And, of course, the fun doesn’t stop there. Immediately following the on-air presentation, MTV News’ Josh Horowitz will be on hand for a Q&A with the actors live on MTV.com. You can follow along with the action on Twitter using the hash tag #MTVSneak.
It all leads up to the 21st annual Movie Awards — hosted by comedy king Russell Brand — airing live Sunday, June 3, at 9 p.m. ET from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California.
On Tuesday, we’re hanging out with none other than Kristen Stewart as she and a few of her co-stars give us an early glimpse at “Snow White and the Huntsman.” Stewart plays the title character in this revolutionary take on the classic tale. As she’s sought by Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) — who’s intent on destroying her — she teams up with a Huntsman named Eric (Chris Hemsworth) as they attempt to reclaim their kingdom. The cast also includes Sam Claflin, who plays William, a young duke enraptured by Snow White’s purity and defiance.
Andy Samberg will be on hand to reveal an exclusive clip from his new film “That’s My Boy.” The “Saturday Night Live” comedian stars as Todd, whose father, Donny (played by Adam Sandler), reappears in his life on the eve of his wedding after abandoning him when he turned 18. As Donny tries desperately to reconnect with his son, he’s faced with the consequences of his terrible parenting skills.
Then on Thursday, Channing Tatum joins us to introduce the highly anticipated “Magic Mike,” based loosely on the actor’s time as a stripper. The flick is directed by Steven Soderbergh and follows exotic dancer Mike (Tatum) as he takes a newbie performer the Kid (Alex Pettyfer) under his wing. His tutelage involves the finer points of partying, women and getting those women to open their wallets wide and make it rain.
Finally, on Friday, “Rock of Ages” rounds out the weeklong event with appearances by Diego Boneta, Julianne Hough and director Adam Shankman. The film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical centers on the story of a small-town girl named Sherrie and a big-city boy named Drew, who meet in Hollywood while pursuing their dreams and begin a rockin’ romance. The all-star cast includes our very own movie awards host Russell Brand, R&B musician Mary J. Blige, Alec Baldwin, Tom Cruise and Catherine Zeta-Jones with music by Def Leppard, Journey, Twisted Sister and more.
