Get ready for some New Moon. And nope, we're not talking about a new set of paparazzi pics of Robert Pattinson & Co.

I can exclusively reveal that footage from the Twilight sequel will be shown for the first time during the upcoming MTV Movie Awards.

And that's not all, it gets better...

Awards-show producer Mark Burnett says Pattz, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner will hit the stage together to present the clip.

An action-packed, minutelong clip from Twilight showing Edward battling bad-boy bloodsucker James (Cam Gigandet) made its debut at last year's awards. It was also the first time Pattinson and Stewart walked the red carpet together in support of the movie.

"Fans can tune in to the show to see sneak peeks from three of the most highly anticipated movies of the year," Burnett tells me. "These clips have never been seen before, and we're very excited that The Twilight Saga: New Moon is one of them."

Twilight and Slumdog Millionaire lead in nominations, with each receiving six nods.

Hosted by funnyman Andy Samberg, the show will be telecast live May 31 from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, Calif. Previously announced presenters include Vanessa Hudgens, Leighton Meester, Cameron Diaz and Lil Wayne, among others. Eminem and Kings of Leon will perform.
