You talking to me? You talking to me?!
Didn’t think so. We’ve entered the world of Best Fight at the MTV Movie Awards, and here you’d best tread carefully. Otherwise you might find an enraged Beyoncé pulling your hair, a mutated Hugh Jackman slicing you to pieces or a jacked-up Robert Downey Jr. bringing you to your knees with his mind grapes and then knocking your lights out with his fists.
Before the big show this Sunday at 9 p.m. ET, check out all our nominees for Best Fight, and vote for your favorite by heading to MovieAwards.MTV.com.
Beyoncé Knowles vs. Ali Larter in “Obsessed”
The big takeaway from this girl-on-girl throw-down? Do not mess with Beyoncé’s man. If you do, you’re likely to get tossed across the room, slammed into a wall and, then, well, it’s gonna get really ugly. Poor, insane Ali Larter didn’t know what hit her. And hit her again. The only destiny for that obsessed young woman? The grave.
Hugh Jackman and Liev Schreiber vs. Ryan Reynolds in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”
Jackman and Schreiber play brothers who spend most of this flick trying to pummel each other into the ground. But when they’re faced with a super-engineered mutant in the shape of a hairless Reynolds, the bros team up and beat that dude down. All three of them end up getting stabbed; none seem to mind that much. That’s just how those mutants roll.
Logan Lerman vs. Jake Abel in “Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief”
This one’s a story about a dyslexic high school kid who finds out he’s the son of Poseidon. Cue a journey across the land and into the depths of hell to save the world from destruction. Along the way, Lerman gains a magical thunderbolt, some high-tops with wings and the ability to manipulate water in a way the U.S. military might be keen to figure out too. All three of these things come in handy for his skyscraper brawl with Abel.
Robert Downey Jr. vs. Mark Strong in “Sherlock Holmes”
Sherlock Holmes as an action hero? We’ll let Downey himself set this one up. “He’s a total badass,” the actor told us. “He thinks through all eventualities, possibilities and counterattacks when he’s fighting, so he actually has the fight worked out before he starts.” No arguments from us, as his fight against Mark Strong makes clear. The two clash high above the Thames — no matter that the Tower Bridge is only half-finished and that Rachel McAdams goes tumbling off at one point. Hey, when it’s time to kick some ass, nothing can get in the way.
Sam Worthington vs. Stephen Lang in “Avatar”
In one corner we’ve got a big blue alien controlled by a paraplegic human. In the other we’ve got a scar-faced ex-soldier in an armored suit. At stake is the fate of an entire race of nature-loving humanoids. No big deal. Worthington is a man possessed, and nothing (not even one scary-ass warrior) will stand in the way of him winning the fight and saving his otherworldly love.
