Just two more days, movie fans! The 2012 MTV Movie Awards are coming to you live from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California, as your favorite Hollywood stars battle it out for the coveted Golden Popcorn awards. But before the main event, “Rock of Ages” will round out Sneak Peek Week with appearances by Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Malin Akerman and director Adam Shankman.
The film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical centers on the story of a small-town girl named Sherrie (Hough) and a big-city boy named Drew (Boneta), who meet in Hollywood while pursuing their dreams and begin a rock-and-roll romance. The cast will hit Universal’s CityWalk on Friday (June 1) to bring us a never-before-seen clip of their movie followed by a 30-minute Q&A session. Here are five rockin’ reasons to check it out!
We’ve seen some pretty amazing all-star casts in our time, but this one is full of serious rock stars. The lineup includes our very own Movie Awards host Russell Brand, R&B musician Mary J. Blige, Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Will Forte, Paul Giamatti and more. And since Joe Manganiello showed up via video to ask Channing Tatum a question for Thursday night’s “Magic Mike” Q&A, you never know who will surprise us tonight.
We saw it rain Channing Tatum, witnessed a naughty teacher seduce a young Adam Sandler and watched as Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth almost got hacked up by dwarves. There’s no doubt the folks behind “Rock of Ages” will bring us an equally juicy exclusive — maybe featuring one of the A-list cameos or a massive dance number?
Big Hair, Even Bigger Questions
Want to know how the cast felt being transported back to the ’80s? Or how Julianne Hough’s “Dancing with the Stars” moves came in handy for the film? Tweet us your burning questions using the hashtag #MTVSneak and the stars may answer you live on MTV.com. Immediately following the exclusive clip, our very own Josh Horowitz will be sitting down with the actors to relay your queries and a few of his own. You’ll never know what they’ll reveal!
We were able to get Tatum to show off his Usher moves for the audience and watched as Andy Samberg did his iconic Nicolas Cage impression. The “Rock of Ages” cast may want to warm up their vocal cords and impress us with their own talent. And with music by Def Leppard, Journey, Twisted Sister and more, we’d gladly approve.
It’s The Finale Before The Big Day!
The smash hit musical will close this year’s Sneak Peek Week with a bang as the final event before the big day. Get one last peek at this summer’s hottest films before the Movie Awards brings more never-before-seen footage from “The Dark Knight Rises” and a first look at “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” trailer live on June 3 at 9 p.m. ET. You won’t want to miss it!
