Most actors dream of winning that little golden statue of a man named Oscar, but last night, it was a golden popcorn bucket that stars vied for at the MTV Movie Awards held in Los Angeles.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire was the big winner at the fan-voted awards show, being named Movie of the Year, Best Female Performance for Jennifer Lawrence and Best Female Performance for Josh Hutcherson.
Although the show, which was hosted by U.S. chat show presenter Conan O’Brien, focused on honouring the past year’s films, exclusive clips of future summer films premiered during the broadcast, giving movie-goers a sneak peek of what to expect in cinemas as the weather starts to warm up.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2
This clip features Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) and new villain Electro (Jamie Foxx) facing off in the middle of Times Square, complete with slow motion, electric sparks and web-flinging. This Marvel film actually hits cinemas on Wednesday, so you won’t have to wait too long to see how this showdown turns out.
X-Men: Days of Future Past
The time-bending superhero film will feature characters from the original X-Men trilogy teaming up with their younger selves from X-Men: First Class. The latest instalment of the X-Men franchise won’t be skimping on the action or the stars, as Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, Halle Berry and Ellen Page (just to name a few) will be suiting up for the summer film. This clip gives us a glimpse of how the characters will be travelling in between past, present and future.
The Fault in Our Stars
A much calmer alternative to the action-packed superhero films this summer is The Fault in Our Stars, which features newcomers Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort as two teenagers who meet at a cancer support group. This clip gives us the first look at main characters Gus and Hazel’s budding relationship and shows a bit of Gus’ philosophical side.
