Elle Fanning and Joel Courtney will also be on hand to present exclusive scenes on Sunday.

Details have been scarce about this summer’s potential blockbuster “Super 8,” as J.J. Abrams and company have maintained their typical air of secrecy about the thriller, which hits theaters on June 10. All that could change on Sunday night, when viewers will get a sneak peek at the Steven Spielberg-produced movie at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards.

Both director Abrams and Spielberg will join “Super 8″ stars Elle Fanning and Joel Courtney on the stage of the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California, to present never-before-seen footage from the film, which chronicles a mysterious event accidentally caught on film by the cast of young stars.


Abrams, Spielberg, Fanning and Courtney join a previously announced slate of presenters that includes: Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Steve Carell, Emma Stone, Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Josh Duhamel, Patrick Dempsey, Cameron Diaz, Jason Segel, Jesse Eisenberg, Aziz Ansari, Danny McBride, Nicki Minaj, Selena Gomez, Leighton Meester and Katie Cassidy.
