'Bridesmaids' Play 'The Hunger Games' in Epic Trailer Mashup

This Sunday, two movies will enter the MTV Movie Awards Arena. Only one will survive.

Actually, this trailer mashup has given us a new appreciation for just how epic and dangerous Annie's (Kristen Wiig) task as the maid of honor in "Bridesmaids" really was. Sure, Katniss' life was at stake at all times in "The Hunger Games," but Annie's journey was a pretty perilous one, too — especially on the plane to Vegas.

Donald Sutherland sets the ominous tone as both "Bridesmaids" and "The Hunger Games" fight for a Golden Popcorn Award on Sunday, June 3 at 9 p.m. ET on MTV.

Kristen Wiig Has Moves Like Jagger In Tearful 'SNL' Farewell

It's always sad when your favorite star leaves your favorite TV show, but when that star is "Bridesmaids" superstar Kristen Wiig and the show is "Saturday Night Live," well, let's just say that mixed feelings don't even begin to describe it. More Wiig movies? Great. Less Wiig every weekend?

Well, that's something even Mick Jagger is moved to tears over. Get More »

It's 'The Hunger Games' vs. 'Bridesmaids' at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards

Katniss Everdeen may have survived the Games, but we'll have to see how she fares against Kristen Wiig and her band of crazies — or, rather, ladies — as "The Hunger Games" and "Bridesmaids" lead the 2012 MTV Movie Award nominations with eight apiece, including Movie of the Year.

That's not a typo: The usually dominant "Twilight" series and its 2011 entry, "Breaking Dawn - Part 1," nabbed only two nominations (Movie of the Year and Best Kiss), while movies like "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2," (six noms) "21 Jump Street" (six) and "The Help" (four) fared better and will have more chances at bringing home Golden Popcorn statues.

Why 'Five-Year Engagement' Could Be This Year's 'Bridesmaids'

The Five-Year Engagement
Universal

Judd Apatow, Hollywood's godfather of raunchy and sophisticated humor, is responsible for producing last year's breakout comedy "Bridesmaids." So it's no surprise that this year's best bet to succeed the wedding-centered laughfest is "The Five-Year Engagement," yet another marriage-minded, Apatow-produced movie.

Written by Jason Segel and his screenwriting partner Nicholas Stoller, who also directed, "The Five-Year Engagement" follows Tom (Segel) and Violet (Emily Blunt), a San Francisco couple whose engagement is postponed again and again when Violet is offered a postdoctorate fellowship at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.

The plot might sound like dozens of stereotypical rom-coms, but here are five reasons "The Five-Year Engagement" could be this year's "Bridesmaids." Get More »

Q&A: Jon Hamm's New Very Adult Film

Jon Hamm freely admits that he slept with the director of his latest film.

Of course, that film is "Friends With Kids" and the writer-director-star is Jennifer Westfeldt, Hamm's girlfriend of 14 years.

"Kids" is an ensemble indie comedy about best buds (Westfeldt and Adam Scott) who, after watching all their couple friends start families, decide to procreate platonically. In a strange, bizarro world twist on "Bridesmaids," Hamm and Kristen Wiig make one of those friend pairings, while co-stars of the summer hit, Maya Rudolph and Chris O'Dowd, form another.

Hamm – who also produced – told us about working with his woman in creating an anti-explosion, anti-"Twilight," full-on adult movie. And get your mind out of the gutter, he doesn't mean porn. Get More »
