With the Grammys and the Oscars coming up, the MTV Movie Awards may feel like a distant event. While they're not until April 12, host Amy Schumer is already getting prepped for the show by introducing herself to past winner Anna Kendrick. The Pitch Perfect star tries to remain calm as Schumer invades her apartment and presents red cups with which to play her hit, "Cups." In the midst of all the seriousness that comes with award season, this is pretty light and funny. Take a look! Get More: 2014 MTV Movie Awards, Latest Movie News »
Amy Schumer is a little tone deaf when she meets Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick in a new promo for the 2015 MTV Movie Awards. Schumer, 33, is tackling hosting duties for the first time this year - which Kendrick suspects is because "Chelsea Handler said no."Though it's a cliché that everyone in Hollywood knows each other, film star Kendrick, 29, has to check her phone to place the star of Comedy Central's Inside Amy Schumer. From there, plenty of cringe-worthy familiarity on Schumer's part ensues.Warning: If you watch until the end, the language gets a little Nsfw. The 2015 MTV »

Brittany Snow loved jetting into Utah for Sundance. We caught up with the Pitch Perfect star to talk film festival fashion, beauty and more. She may be from Florida, but Snow doesn't mind some cold temperature dressing. Her best friend and stylist was responsible for her looks in Park City. "She packs for my because I have no idea what I'm doing," Snow said at the Lipton Sparkling Lounge, where she hosted a performance by American Authors. "She picks a lot of really cute plaids, flannels and hats, anything that's kind of layer-y because I get really cold." And that also means she gets to slip on more and more...hats! "I wear a lot of hats in my real »

Rebel Wilson is staying true to her name. The one-of-a-kind Australian actress opened up in a new interview with Australia's Daily Life, and touched on her body image, her flourishing career, and why she'll "never" be one of the "twig bitches" her Pitch Perfect character Fat Amy fought against. Appearing in the upcoming Pitch Perfect 2, Wilson, 28, told the Daily Life that she is comfortable in her own skin, and recognized that she doesn't look like many of Hollywood's biggest (yet skinniest) stars. "One time I got [...] »
Rebel Wilson credits her weight with making her funnier.
"Bigger girls do better in comedy. I don't know why. Maybe because people find it easier to laugh," the 28-year-old Aussie actress told Australia's Daily Life. "It's very hard to laugh at someone who's very attractive, I think. And normally those people don't have a great personality anyway."

One of Wilson's more recognizable roles is as Fat Amy in Pitch Perfect, and she admits that like her character, she owns her size. "I took something that was seen as a disadvantage -- no one thinks, if you're fat, that you're going to be an actress and everyone's going to love you -- and turned it into a positive."
Though confident in her own skin, the Bridesmaids actress does confess that she's pondered shrinking down to a "twig b**ch."

Host/Musical Guest: Country music gets a bad rap in a lot of ways outside of the bible belt. Part of this is justifiable: The dregs of country music are ripe ground for parody, what with their trucks and beer and love for the troops. “Bro country”, in particular, has as many staunch defenders as it does haters who want to watch it burn in a tire fire. These are the kinds of country songs that take those truck and beer aspects of the genre, crank it up to 10, and generally are performed either very drunk or without shirts on (for a good primer on this, just listen to Maddie & Tae’s excellent takedown “Girl In A Country Song”). For many, Blake Shelton is the grand poobah of bro country, »

The title of their show is meant to be ironic—or at the least a portmanteau of "working" and "alcoholics"—but the three stars of Comedy Central's Workaholics show up late at night and sober, having just pulled a double shift. We're on the patio of Hollywood's Black bar, and the boys are relaxing after a grueling day of shooting a fifth season, which premiered Jan. 14. Adam DeVine, 31, Blake Anderson, 30, and Anders Holm, 33, play Adam, Blake, and Anders: three inveterate bros who have mastered the art of underachievement. But these comedians aren't slackers, pursuing individual careers with spots on »

Brittany Snow can't reveal the songs she and her co-stars sing in Pitch Perfect 2, but she can give us a little tease of what's to come. "There are a lot of mashups in this one and there's this one performance in which we actually go insane and do all this great stuff," Snow told me at Elle's Women in TV celebration at the Sunset Tower Hotel. "I [use a] glow stick and there's hula-hooping. There's all sorts of madness. We got to get a little down and dirty." The Pitch Perfect sequel includes the returns of Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Anna Camp. Elizabeth Banks not only produces and appears as an a capella competition judge, but she also directs the much-anticipated »
Grace: The Possession, 2014.
Directed by Jeff Chan.
A virginal Catholic teenager leaves her religious grandmother’s house to go to college and soon finds that drink and drugs are the least of her worries.
The trouble with making a possession film in the 21st century is that it has been done quite definitively already. The Exorcist pretty much covered all the bases back in 1973, and although there have been some entertaining knock-offs since then – Amityville II: The Possession basically re-told the same story but with the touch of Dino De Laurentiis adding some unintentional quasi-comic hilarity – and a bit of a re-invention with the likes of The Last Exorcism adding a found footage spin on things, you’ve really got to work hard these days to make a movie about possession stand out. »

Paul Feig has got a tough job on his hands trying to win round the Ghostbusters fanbase since the announcement that he’s rebooting the franchise with an all-female cast. The film has been met with a lot of negativity online, but that hasn’t bothered Feig yet.
“We’re not recreating the old movie, but we want to do just enough fun nods that the fans will go, ‘Oh, okay, they’re acknowledging that the other movie existed,'” Feig has told Empire. “I like to watch parodies, but I don’t want to do them because they’re too referential. Comedy that’s too referential has such a short shelf life, whereas comedy that’s based around characters will be relatable 2000 years from now because people won’t change that much.”
The Bridesmaids director has also confirmed that his Ghostbusters will once again be set in New York. »

One clip shows Banks and a shirtless Holbrook (hot!) talking in bed about his upcoming testimony before authorities investigating the tragedy.

Exclusive: In a competitive situation, Tom Rothman’s TriStar has acquired the rights to Dirty Rush, the scathing comic novel that S&S division Gallery Books publishes this month. Brownstone Productions’ Elizabeth Banks & Max Handelman will produce what is being called Mean Girls in a sorority house. Banks & Handelman produced Pitch Perfect.
Dirty Rush was written by Taylor Bell, a pseudonym for Tanner Cohen and David Oliver Cohen, co-creators of the bestselling White Girl Problems. The book includes a foreward by real-life sorority girl Rebecca Martinson, the former Delta Gamma sister whose scathing email verbally assaulting her entire chapter went viral last year. That intensity and absurdity defines the spirit of the film that Rothman has in mind.
Banks & Handelman have completed Pitch Perfect 2, which Banks directed and which Universal has set for release May 15. Brownstone was recently staked to a two-year first-look production pact with Universal. Nicole Brown will oversee this for TriStar. »
