NEW YORK (May 24, 2010) - Giving fans worldwide more of the beloved vampire film franchise they adore and vote tirelessly for each year, MTV today announced that Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner are confirmed to present an exclusive scene from the highly anticipated summer blockbuster "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" (in theaters June 30, 2010) at the "2010 MTV Movie Awards." "Twi-Hards" will get a first look at a never-before-seen scene from the next installment of Summit Entertainment's vampire love story movie phenomenon and the network will send their already heightened excitement into overdrive as a member of "The Twilight Saga" wolf pack hits the red carpet. "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" cast member Chaske Spencer will serve as the official MTV International "2010 MTV Movie Awards" guest red carpet correspondent. Spencer - who stars as werewolf Sam Uley in "The Twilight Saga" - will man the mike on the red carpet as part of a special edition of "MTV At The Movies," which will bring audiences outside the United States closer to the biggest names in the industry and the most talked about moments as part of MTV's global coverage of the "2010 MTV Movie Awards." Hosted by Aziz Ansari, the "2010 MTV Movie Awards" will be broadcast LIVE from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, CA on Sunday, June 6 at 9p.m./8p.m.C.

Pattinson, Stewart and Lautner join previously announced superstar presenters Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Zac Efron, Jonah Hill, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Steve Carell, Miranda Cosgrove, Shaun White, Vanessa Hudgens, Sean "Diddy" Combs, the cast of "The Grown Ups" (Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade and Rob Schneider), Paul Rudd, Jason Segel, Anna Kendrick, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Aubrey Plaza.
