The MTV Network has released the news that they plan to air their annual Movie Awards much earlier than expected in 2013. Usually set to hit airwaves around Memorial Day, MTV is bringing fans the big event in April instead. As pointed out by the site, moving the awards up will allow the network to circle their production around upcoming blockbuster hits and successful movies of 2012.
Airing sooner in the year will ensure “that the blockbusters and gut-busting comedies of 2012 won’t be forgotten,” MTV shared. The music destination has plans to celebrate the likes of “Marvel’s The Avengers, Christopher Nolan’s trilogy-ending The Dark Knight Rises, Ridley Scott’s mind-bending space horror love letter Prometheus, Seth MacFarlane’s raunchy laugh-fest Ted, and shirtless Channing Tatum’s no-clothes-barred hit Magic Mike.” Details of the coming year’s host and scheduled performances are on the way.
