Rebel Wilson And Channing Tatum Team Up For Action In MTV Movie Awards Promo

In a little over a month, Rebel Wilson will take the stage to host the 2013 MTV Movie Awards. The Pitch Perfect star enlisted the help of People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive 2012, Channing Tatum, for this new promo for the MTV Movie Awards, which pays homage to Tatum's upcoming action film White House Down.

In what's likely to be one of numerous promotional videos for this year's MTV Movie Awards, this one puts Wilson and Tatum in a dangerous limo chase, which Wilson uses as an opportunity to climb above Tatum while he's driving.

"They're gaining on us. Take your shirt off."

A quick glimpse of the Presidential seal in the backseat links the limo to Roland Emmerich's upcoming action-thriller White House Down, which has Tatum starring alongside Jamie Foxx and Maggie Gyllenhaal in the film about a paramilitary group that takes over the White House. Tatum plays a Secret Service agent tasked to rescue the president. Based on this promo, if Rebel Wilson's anywhere nearby when he's trying to do that, his job might be a bit more difficult. Unless he can get used to driving with her in his lap.

I'm holding out hope that we'll see a Pitch Perfect parody in one of these promos, or perhaps an aca-mazing musical performance during the 2013 MTV Movie Awards when it airs in April. The film earned four nominations, including two for Wilson herself (Best Female Performance, Breakthrough Performance). A song seems in order, if not inevitable.
