We join events already in progress: things truly got started on Monday evening, during the first of our five sneak-peek events, when we sat down with “Fright Night” star Christopher Mintz-Plasse and director Craig Gillespie for an early look at their horror remake and an extended chat about the project. Then on Tuesday, it was time for a conversation with the stars of “The Art of Getting By,” a Sundance fave earlier this year. Emma Roberts, Michael Angarano, Elizabeth Reaser and director Gavin Wiesen stopped by to introduce a clip, then stuck around to discuss their indie about a lonely student (Freddie Highmore) and the unlikely friendship he strikes up with Roberts’ charismatic and complicated teen girl.
And now the real action starts. This afternoon, we’ll be trekking across the concrete corridors of Los Angeles to talk to “Breaking Dawn” star Jackson Rathbone. And “Jackass” fav Steve-O will be swinging through Universal City, where the MTV News offices are located all week — just a few hundred yards from where the Movie Awards will take place on June 5 at 9 p.m. ET. Then at night, sneak peek #3 kicks off with the summer comedy, “Horrible Bosses.” Director Seth Gordon will present an exclusive clip before diving into a chat about how Jason Bateman and his onscreen cohorts hatch a plan to kill their nasty workplace superiors. As always, you can tweet your questions @MTVNews using the hashtag #spw.
It’s gonna be a hectic day, but really it’s just the beginning. In-N-Out and a love for what we do will keep us powering through until show night. Keep it locked to Movies Blog all week for everything there is to know about the 2011 MTV Movie Awards!
