New Footage From Fantastic Beasts to be Reveal at the MTV Movie Awards

Stars will gather Saturday at the MTV Movie Awards, where, after a very serious and long awards season, they'll let loose and celebrate whether Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan's steamy elevator encounter will win best kiss and if Adam Driver will win best villain for The Force Awakens.

Winners are decided online through fan voting. This year's taped broadcast will be co-hosted by comedian/actor Kevin Hart and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who are starring in the action film Central Intelligence, which comes out in June.

The 25th annual ceremony will take place, for the first time in 21 years, at the Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank. The awards show is set to premiere some exclusive clips from this year's most anticipated films like Captain America: Civil War and J.K. Rowling's newest project, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Gigi Hadid, Olivia Munn, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron are just some of the A-list stars who will be presenting the golden popcorns on Saturday night (the ceremony will air at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Sunday).

This year's MTV Generation Award will be presented to Will Smith, who will also be there to debut an exclusive clip from his upcoming comic book-based movie Suicide Squad, alongside co-stars Jared Leto, Margot Robbie and Cara Delevingne. Melissa McCarthy, who next hits the big screen in The Boss, will receive the Comedic Genius Award.

In the midst of movie madness, the only two performances that have been confirmed so far are Ariana Grande, who will debut her single "Dangerous Woman," from her forthcoming studio album, and songstress Halsey will live debut her single "Castle" from the upcoming Universal film The Huntsman: Winter's War.

"This song is so important to me as a woman; it's about not letting anything get in your way," Halsey told MTV. "I'm so happy MTV & The Huntsman are giving me the opportunity to present that message on television. Plus, it'll look sick."

Star Wars: The Force Awakens could go home with the most wins, given its 11 nominations including movie of the year. Trailing right behind the J.J. Abrams film in nominations is this year's unconventional superhero Deadpool, with eight.

The other film that is nominated for both movie of the year and the true story award is Ice Cube and Dr. Dre's Straight Outta Compton, which was snubbed at both the Oscars and the Golden Globes. Incidentally, fellow Compton native Kendrick Lamar will be presenting the award.
