LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - This year will look a lot like 2012 at the box office, with "The Hunger Games" and Hobbits at the top of cinemagoers must-see lists, according to a survey by ticket-seller Fandango released on Thursday. The second installment in "The Hunger Games" trilogy, "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," which is set for a November release, topped the list as 2013's most-anticipated blockbuster. The first film in the life-or-death thriller series starring Jennifer Lawrence, raked in some $687 million at the worldwide box office in 2012. ...

Photo: MTV News Now that "Jersey Shore" has come to an end after six seasons, many fans are looking for a new hit series to fill that Thursday (a.k.a. "Jerzday") time slot. Well, lucky for those viewers, MTV's brand-new series "Buckwild" will be filling that spot. The new series, which debuts tonight (January 3) at 10 p.m., follows the lives of nine West Virginia twentysomethings as the engage in fights, four-wheeling and dump-trunk pool parties. Even though we're trading "GTL" for "mudding," "Buckwild" is similar to "Jersey Shore" in its jaw-dropping moments, including catfights with a neighbor and rolling down hills in truck tires. And that's not the only thing the two shows have in common: "Buckwild" has also created some political controversy. Last month, West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin demanded that MTV cancel the series, saying the show is a "travesty" and that it "plays to ugly, inaccurate stereotypes about the people of West Virginia." MTV News recently sat down with two of the stars of "Buckwild," Shae and Shain, who believe Senator Manchin was out of line in his comments. "All them old people in West Virginia cannot go back and say that they did not do all that stupid stuff, because if they did, they're lying," Shain, a.k.a "Gandee Candy," said. "I mean, they all had trucks, and they's all being goofy, making our own stunts ... just ours was caught on film." Shae, who is known as the Southern belle of the show, added, "I'm not representing anyone but myself. Like even my best friends on the show, if they do something to embarrass themselves, I don't feel like they represent me. ... I definitely can't represent the entire state of West Virginia. That's just stereotypical and just ... it doesn't make sense." Back in 2011, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who felt "Jersey Shore" portrayed his state in a negative light, pulled $420,000 in tax credits away from the show, even though local officials of Seaside Heights claimed there was a boost in economic activity. Seems like we will have to tune in to see how "Buckwild" impacts the town of Sissonville, West Virginia. Following tonight's premiere, MTV will air back-to-back half-hour episodes of the series each Thursday at 10 p.m. Don't miss the premiere of "Buckwild" tonight (January 3) at 10 p.m. ET on MTV.

New albums from Arcade Fire, My Chemical Romance also have us anxiously awaiting the next 12 months.
By James Montgomery
Paramore and The Black Keys
Photo: Warner Music Group At the beginning of 2012, could anyone have predicted that the year's biggest rock breakout would be Fun., a band with just a single album (and a couple of tours) to their credit? Probably not ... which is why making predictions about just what will hit over the next 12 months is an inexact science at best. So rather than waste time attempting to forecast 2013, today we're going to highlight some of the rock albums we're most excited about this year: Big returns from established acts that, regardless of whether or not they actually sell, certainly have us waiting with bated breath. Some already have release dates attached, most are merely works in progress, but all will definitely help make the next year a memorable one. Here are our picks for the Most Anticipated Rock Albums of 2013. Arcade Fire
They're reportedly working "full time" on the follow-up to the Grammy winning The Suburbs, and recently unveiled a new song, "Crucified Again." And as if anticipation wasn't already running high, this month came news that Arcade Fire are teaming with former LCD Soundsystem mastermind James Murphy on a handful of songs. The album's reportedly due by the end of the year. Atoms For Peace
Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke's super side project (it features Flea, Nigel Godrich, Joey Waronker and Mauro Refosco) will drop their debut disc, Amok, on February 25, and, in anticipation, they've already begun transforming Los Angeles into a post-apocalyptic wasteland. If songs like "Default" and "What The Eyeballs Did" are proof, a claustrophobic good time will be had by all. The Black Keys
The follow-up to their Grammy-nominated El Camino "is definitely happening" in 2013, and the Keys will begin recording in January, with plans of having the album done by spring. One question: Will Derrick T. Tuggle make an appearance this time?
Kings of Leon
The Followill clan has been busy getting married, having babies and launching side projects since the release of Come Around Sundown, but that hasn't stopped them from alsobeginning work on the next Kings album, which might see the light of day in 2013. My Chemical Romance
They've already begun releasing songs from the so-called Conventional Weapons series — aka the album they scrapped before recording 2010's Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys — and guitarist Frank Iero previously said MCR had already begun work on a conventional follow up, writing and recording in the studio they built in Los Angeles. What will be the concept this time? We'll just have to wait and see. Nine Inch Nails
After waving goodbye in 2009, Trent Reznor turned his attention to scoring films, even winning an Oscar for his work on "The Social Network," and making music with his wife in How to Destroy Angels. And, because of all that, most thought NIN was gone forever ... but, in recent months, we've learned otherwise, as Reznor told Rolling Stone that there was new Nails music "in the works," and the band might be hitting the road once again. Will we see new material next year? Paramore
After surviving two years of turmoil and turnover, Paramore will return on April 9 with their self-titled fourth album, and, from the sound of things, they've got something to prove: "Making this album was a rediscovering of ourselves," they recently wrote. "It was a process that allowed us to liberate ourselves as musicians, singers, and people." The liberation begins with first single "Now," which heads to radio this month. Pearl Jam
They recharged with 2009's Backspacer and have reportedly been working on the follow up since April of 2011, when bassist Jeff Ament told Billboard that PJ were recording "a whole bunch of demos" which netted 25 songs. Of course, since then, they also paused to look back, commemorating their 20th anniversary. So will 2013 see them kick off their third decade with a new album? We hope so. Queens of the Stone Age
It's been five years since the last Queens album, and it seems like they're making up for lost time with their latest, reportedly due this summer. They're once again recruited Dave Grohl to play drums on the disc, and frontman Josh Homme has reportedly buried the hatchet with former bassist Nick Oliveri, who's contributing vocals. Yeah Yeah Yeahs
We just found out that the YYYs will be releasing the follow-up to 2009's It's Blitz! in the spring, though we're not quite sure what they mean by "DNA upgrades" and "Spontaneous evolution." Only time will tell, though we're totally glad to have the Yeah Yeah Yeahs back in our lives. What rock album tops your most-anticipated list? Let us know in the comments below.
'Let Me Love You' singer opens up to MTV News about his plans for the coming year.
By Jocelyn Vena
Photo: MTV News Ne-Yo had a pretty sweet 2012. He once again got the world dancing, with "Let Me Love You," and the hitmaker knew that in order to close out another successful year, he had to go hard. You see, he's quite superstitious about his New Year's plans. "This is, like, kicking off the new year, and I firmly believe the way that you start the year is the way you end the year," he told MTV News, who caught up with the singer/songwriter after he took the stage for "MTV's Club NYE 2013." He explained why MTV was the only place to be Monday night, where he was joined by Rita Ora, Ke$ha, Snooki, JWoww and more. "If you start the year on a high note, you end the year on a high note." With that being said, Ne-Yo felt a lot of love in the room as he played his dance-floor anthem for the last time in 2012 and looked ahead to 2013. "Jersey Shore" stars share their New Year's resolutions! "The energy from the crowd, the energy from the dancers, this is like one of the last shows of the year. We've been going hard all year, so that was definitely one of those 'We got to go out with a bang,' " he explained, before further reiterating his year-end motto. "We got to bring the new year in with a bang, so that's exactly what happened." In case you're wondering, Ne-Yo really, really enjoyed himself. "I had a ball," he said. "I hope everybody else had as much fun as I did." Post-performance with the main show's cameras rolling, the hitmaker broke down what he's looking forward to in the coming 12 months. "You know what? R&B music. Y'all remember slow jams? I want R&B to make a comeback in 2013, and I'm gonna try and have something to do with that," he told "Club NYE" co-host Snooki after he stepped off the stage.

With Hov set to score Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby,' MTV News imagines a Roc-inspired movie soundtrack.
By Rob Markman
Photo: Kevin Mazur/ WireImage So Jay Hova will be scoring tunes for Jay Gatsby, huh? Fans could barely contain their excitement after the Bullitts revealed on Twitter that he and Jay-Z were teaming up to score the upcoming "Great Gatsby" film. While we still have no idea exactly what Jigga's contribution to Baz Luhrmann's movie will be, we do know his Watch the Throne single "No Church in the Wild" appears in the movie's trailer, which was released last May. And although an "American Gangster"-style soundtrack would be fine by us, we're not sure how rap tunes would fit in with the 1920's-set flick starring Leonardo DiCaprio and based, of course, on F. Scott Fitzgerald's literary classic. Still, the lack of details about this project has only made our imaginations run wilder. After all, the two Jays (the rapper and the title character) have a similar rags-to-riches mystique. If the filmmakers wanted to, they could easily create a fitting soundtrack plucked from Hov's colorful discography. But since we're sure they're busy putting the finishing touches on the May 10 flick, MTV News decided to help out a bit and gather a collection of Jigga's most "Gatsby"-esque tracks for a fantasy score. "In My Lifetime (Remix)"
Newer Hov fans may not be as familiar with Jay-Z's earlier work, but die-hards know all about this pre-Reasonable Doubt gem. On the Big Jaz-produced, independently released single, Shawn Carter ponders the meaning of life while getting his first taste of millionaire spoils thanks to an illegal street hustle. "Dead Presidents I & II"
Like Gatsby, Hov was initially an enigma. Back in 1996, a rapper would have to experience platinum success before he could hit fans with the big-money talk, but not Jigga. On this '96 single, the little-known Brooklyn hustler thrilled fans with lavish bars. "Got the city drinkin' Cristal, we up'd the fee/ Rappers goin' broke, tryin' to keep up with me," he spit at a time when most MCs were boasting about downing 40 ounces of malt liquor. "Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem)"
F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel is the ultimate rags-to-riches story about a man so driven by love and the American Dream that he would go to creative and crafty lengths for a taste of the good life. On Jay's classic "Hard Knock Life," he exhibited the same drive. Like Gatsby, Hov came up as a hustler, but rather than hide in shame over his shady past, Jay embraced it and employed a clever "Annie" sample to boot. "I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me)"
The Great Jay Gatsby would throw the swankiest of house parties in hopes of luring his true love Daisy Buchanan to his Long Island, New York, mansion. And on this Neptunes-produced club banger, Hov details the ultimate soiree, one where girls dance with girls and all the club patrons sing the famous Carl Thomas "I wish I never met her at all" lyric in drunken unison. Seeing as to how the novel ends with a series lovelorn murders, we're pretty sure Gatsby could relate. "Song Cry"
Before Jay dropped 2001's The Blueprint, he was widely perceived as a heartless playboy. But after pouring his hustling heart out on the Just Blaze-produced "Song Cry," the God MC's image began to change. Just as Jigga longed for a lost love on this track, Gatsby did too, but little did the literary lothario know that his yearning would lead to his downfall. "Empire State of Mind"
Like moths to a flame, ambitious entrepreneurs are drawn to the bright lights of New York City. On this chart-topping single, Jigga raps of his hometown's allure, but on the final verses he also warns of the dangers that await unsuspecting transplants. In the end, Jay Gatsby's Midwestern ambition was no match for the Big Apple. "So Ambitious"
Here's the downside to having such a plentiful catalog: Some jewels get overlooked, including this Pharrell Williams-assisted cut from Jay's 2009 The Blueprint III LP. With the first line in the first verse, Jigga describes being discouraged by a school teacher growing up. "I felt so inspired by what my teacher said/ Said I'd either be dead or a reefer head," he raps before detailing his climb from the crack game to the rap game. We wonder if anyone ever told James Gatz that all he'd ever be was a love-obsessed bootlegger. "Made In America" (with the Throne's Kanye West)
"The Great Gatsby" is widely heralded as the great American novel. Jay Gatsby, like Jay-Z, came from humble beginnings but both men had visions that far surpassed their immediate surroundings. In the end, isn't that what it's all about, though? To be able to celebrate your success, sit back and sing lyrics like "we made it in America"? Check out everything we've got on "Great Gatsby" What do you think of Jay-Z being tapped to score "The Great Gatsby" flick? Tell us in the comments!

'There's a few surprises,' she hints to MTV News about 2013 album.
By Jocelyn Vena
Photo: MTV News Rita Ora has been circling the U.S. market for some time now. And now that she got everyone's attention last year with her sassy, flirty lead single "How We Do (Party)," she wants more. And with 2012 over, the blond bombshell is ready to start her next chapter here in the states. 2013 will mark the year that Ora will finally drop her U.S. debut album. And she kind of can't wait, especially since she's enlisted one, or perhaps a few, of her Roc Nation pals to join her for all the party and bullsh--. "Yes, there is. There's a few surprises. I don't want to give them away, but it's definitely in the Roc family," she told MTV News. "2013 is really important for me because it's gonna to be the first time the U.S. hears my official album and I wanted to put a few extra tracks on there and make it really special. So I'm basically giving you guys a whole new album of new material." And, while she released Ora to the worldwide market last year, she promises that even those fans will find something new to love on her U.S. release. "So to the world it'll be like a second album, but to you guys it'll be like a first album," she said. And, Ora is already off to a good start, having welcomed in the New Year with MTV during "MTV's Club NYE 2013". But, her performance was only a tease. She's got her sights set high. She added, "2013's got a lot of things I want to achieve. There's a lot of kind of plans and ideas that are gonna come out in 2013." In addition to all the buzz about her proper U.S. album release, there's also been chatter that Ora is attached to a role in "Fast and Furious 6," a part previously linked to Rihanna. But, she's playing coy about all that talk. "Rumors?" she said. "Oh, rumors are they funny!" Excited for Rita Ora's U.S. debut? Tell us what you think in the comments! Related Artists Rita Ora
