In addition to inducting new members into the elite club of Golden Popcorn winners, the “2016 MTV Movie Awards” built on the show’s reputation for wild and visually stunning moments. Hosts Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart entered through the crowd on a flaming “Mad Max”-style war rig, escorted by an entourage of drum-pounding war boys. Ryan Reynolds received a surprise serenade by hip hop legends Salt-N-Pepa of their classic “Shoop” – featured in his film “Deadpool” – as he accepted the award for Best Comedic Performance. And comedy trio The Lonely Island kicked it old school in half-buckled overalls for a medley of MTV Generation Award-winner Will Smith’s greatest hits.

The evening also included exclusive sneak peeks at highly anticipated films “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” “Captain America: Civil War” and the world premiere of the Blitz Trailer for “Suicide Squad.”
