But fans can breathe a sigh of relief. Just weeks before the premiere of "Twilight Eclipse." the hottest stars of the film will be on hand at the MTV Movie Awards to present an exclusive clip of the movie. The trio did the same thing at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards for "New Moon".

Not only will Kristen, Rob and Taylor be appearing on stage for the special presentation of their clip, the three stars could also be taking home their very own golden popcorn awards at the end of the night. Kristen has been nominated for Best Female Performance and twice for Best Kiss. Rob is also up for Best Kiss with Kristen as well as Best Male Performance. He will be battling it out with co-star Taylor Lautner in both categories.

The 'Jonah Hex' Movie Trailer - Examiner

Posted: 26 May 2010 09:42 PM PDT

Warner Brothers has released their first trailer to their western action film Jonah Hex and you can see it here before it hits theaters tomorrow when it debuts during A Nightmare on Elm Street. Opening in theaters on June 18th, the film is directed by Jimmy Hayward and stars Josh Brolin, John Malkovich, Megan Fox and Will Arnett. 

This is the film's first trailer and this is expected to be the only trailer as the it will be released with a few months.

You can watch the trailer in the player below.

 

Jonah Hex (Josh Brolin) is a scarred drifter and bounty hunter of last resort, a tough and stoic gunslinger who can track down anyone... and anything. Having survived death, Jonah's violent history is steeped in myth and legend, and has left him with one foot in the natural world and one on the "other side." His only human connection is with Leila (Megan Fox), whose life in a brothel has left her with scars of her own. But Jonah's past is about to catch up with him when the U.S. military makes him an offer he can't refuse: in exchange for his freedom from the warrants on his head, he must track down and stop the dangerous terrorist Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich). But Turnbull, who is gathering an army and preparing to unleash Hell, is also Jonah's oldest enemy and will stop at nothing until Jonah is dead. Based on the legendary graphic novel, "Jonah Hex" is an epic adventure thriller about one man's personal quest for redemption against the vast canvas of the battle between good and evil.

The film is action packed and has a strong cast. It even has some comedians like Will Arnett. The downside to this film is Megan Fox. While she is something for the guys to look at, her acting ability still has not progressed and is already walking on the path of being typecasted. Still the trailer is not half bad, and might be worth an actual look.

What are your thoughts on the trailer? Why do you think it took Warner Brothers so long to release an actual trailer? As always you can leave your comments and questions in the comment section below.

Movie Review: Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland - Associated Content

Posted: 24 May 2010 04:08 PM PDT

Mistake #2 was to focus on the politics of Wonderland (actually, in this film, it is called Underland, sadly). We get this story of the evil Red Queen and the virtuous White Queen, and how their animosity has affected the citizens of the land. The poor creatures are suffering under the yolk of the bad queen. It smelled just a little too much like Narnia to me (without the religious overtones).

The net effect of these two mistakes was to sap the film of any real sense of wonder. I admired much of the visual look: Tweedledum & Tweedledee were suitably creepy/funny. The life-size playing cards / soldiers were well-rendered. Helena Bonham Carter was a visual marvel as the Red Queen. But I wasn't swept away. I didn't feel transported to a new world, I felt invited to a viewing of a really cool set and some nifty CGI. Wonderland didn't feel real, and the story didn't feel compelling.

Mia Wasikowska made for a very striking Alice. Even though I disagreed with making her a "grown up," I can't fault the actress for that. She plays her underwritten, one-dimensional role as well as possible. (I'll say right now that one of Burton's biggest flaws, to me, is that he seldom creates well-rounded characters...usually just a collection of traits. Some actors can wrangle those quirks and ticks into a believable person...others cannot.) I enjoyed Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen...again, she was seldom asked to do much, but she tore into her role with relish. A lot of the voice work was very good as well: Alan Rickman is perfect for the Caterpillar and I always like Stephen Fry (Cheshire Cat.)

Lewinsky scene cut from Clinton movie - Hindustan Times

Posted: 26 May 2010 03:27 AM PDT

LewinskyA scene about Monica Lewinsky in new HBO film The Special Relationship, which revolves around Bill Clinton and Tony Blair's strained friendship, has been cut from the movie.

The scene shows the former American President confessing his affair with Lewinsky to wife Hillary.

Actress Hope Davis, who plays the former First Lady in the movie, revealed that the scene had been cut from the film at the last moment.

"It felt very strange trying to shoot it. It was a very uncomfortable feeling," the New York Post quoted her, as telling the celebrity-news Web site becksmithhollywood.com.

Davis added: "In the end, it was not included, which was smart on their part. I felt, the less said, the better."

HBO's head of films, Len Amato, said: "You don't need a lot of it to make the point for the story we were telling."

Dennis Quaid plays the role of Clinton and Michael Sheen plays Blair in the film.
