Robert Pattinson's much anticipated "Breaking Dawn" sex scene might not hold an oil lamp to the action in the actor's upcoming period piece, "Bel Ami," if a trailer leaked Friday is any indication.
In a web of French intrigue and bedsheets, Pattinson plays a "penniless" soldier who's trying to break into society. Turns out the young man fortunately has some, um, skill when it comes to entertaining the wives of powerful men at the core of Parisian society.
A trailer for the film, posted early Friday and then taken down, shows RPattz courting beauties played by Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci and Kristin Scott Thomas. His amply notched bedpost soon gets the better of him, and heavy breathing, high stakes and lots of corridor-running ensue.
Worry not, Rob watchers: The dedicated staff of the Ministry's Gratuitous Beefcake and Cheescake department will keep watch for the clip's comeback and post it the moment we can.
In the meantime, tell us in comments whether "Bel Ami" sound like something you'd like to see. And for the record -- that weird hairstyle he's been rocking belongs to his "Cosmopolis" character, Eric Packer.
After spending the first three "Twilight Saga" films fighting to be with her vampire beloved, Kristen Stewart's Bella Swan character confronts a new challenge in the two-part "Breaking Dawn" series conclusion: motherhood.
Plenty of ink has already been shed — and please stop reading now if you haven't read any of that ink and want to be surprised — on Swan's controversial conception, pregnancy and delivery of Renesmee with Robert Pattinson's Edward Cullen character, but Thursday at Comic-Con 2011, Stewart got specific about bringing it all to the big screen.
"We had Mackenzie Foy, who's an amazing little kid, an incredible kid, smarter than me," Stewart said of the actress playing her on-screen daughter.
Since the little darling is half-human, half-vampire, she ages rather quickly in the film, requiring several actors (and even a robot) to step in along the way.
"To see little Chucky from 'Child's Play' ... " Pattinson joked of an animatronic baby used for a scene in which Bella holds her offspring for the first time.
"It had hair, and it's a newborn baby," Stewart said. "I know that's in the book, and you can imagine how cool that would be."
For the ages between the Chucky stage and a fully realized Foy, some of the wee actors couldn't seem to get it right.
"There was one kid who was supposed to run to Billy Burke [who plays Bella's father, Charlie], but she kept running into a wall," director Bill Condon said. "She was so nervous."
We can see Twi-fever on the horizon: "Breaking Dawn" has landed at Comic-Con.
The vampire franchise and its stars, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, descended on San Diego's annual comic convention Thursday for a panel discussion about the first part of the series' epic conclusion.
In a loose-fitting white shirt and black bra, Stewart was flanked by her male costars answering burning questions about fan-favorite plot points — like a gory birth scene featuring her and Pattinson.
"I think the birth scene...for a fantasy scene that has kind of a youngish audience, it goes very far," Pattinson said according to HitFix. The actor labels the scene "hardcore" but insists "there was no other way to do it."
Stewart seems in a reflective place about the films, ones that have catapulted the 21-year-old to stardom.
"I've been building up to these moments for four years. I was 17 when I started doing this movie," she said.
As for the standard behind-the-scenes fun facts, Pattinson dropped this gem about Stewart's downtime obsession: cooking shows.
"Kristen literally only watches the Cooking Channel. And especially on set, it's bizarre. She has a TV in her trailer, and it's always on. It's her only diva-ish behavior," said Pattinson.
"And you all reap the benefits," Stewart shot back.
After Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's much-hyped MTV Movie Awards appearance Sunday, the couple enjoyed some quality time at a star-studded after-party on the roof of West Hollywood's Soho House.
Stewart surfaced in black Levi's and a loose-fitting white T-shirt — a casual contrast from her red, safety-pinned Balmain number from the awards. Pattinson kept his flannel shirt and donned a baseball cap and dark denim jacket.
The pair roamed the rooftop garden during the private CAA celebration thrown for MTV Movie Awards host Jason Sudeikis, chatting with "Twilight" costar Taylor Lautner and his lady friend Lily Collins.
At one point, Stewart pulled a beer-sipping Pattinson to a vacant table and shared close conversation, showing him pictures on her phone.
Another couple made a big showing at the Grey Goose- and YooStar-sponsored bash: Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, who had their public debut as a couple Sunday night in the company of friends, including Chelsea Handler, Cameron Diaz and Reese Witherspoon.
Emma Watson may have been bested by Kristen Stewart and fellow Brits Robert Pattinson and Tom Felton at the MTV Movie Awards, but "The Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2" star said she saw the best-kiss snub coming — and revealed that she can be insecure when it comes to dating because of her fame.
"I mean, I was really up against it. Kristen had two kisses, and Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman making out," Watson told MTV News. "I mean, I couldn't really compete!"
Though "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 1" was the third most-nominated film after "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" and "Inception," chances that the wizarding franchise would beat the vampire juggernaut were slim. Maybe that's why the 21-year-old face of Lancome hit the award show sans costars Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint?
However, she brought a sneak peak of the film instead, and Potter fans have already vowed to beat the Twi-hards next year. Watch the trailer below.
After presenting the clip, wearing a curve-hugging little white dress by Marchesa and revealing that Hermione Granger does in fact have a booty, the actress slipped backstage and missed one of the most talked-about moments of the night: Pattinson and Taylor Lautner's lip-lock following the announcement of best kiss.
"I was like, 'Damn!' " Watson said. "I was still backstage, so I missed it. But, I mean, yeah, good on them!"
But the actress, nominated for her own lip-lock with Radcliffe, has admitted that she worries when she doesn't get action off-screen.
"I ask my friends, ''Why hasn't X called me? Why doesn't anyone ever pursue me?'" she told the Sunday Times' Style Magazine. "My friends tell me, 'Probably because they're intimidated.' It must be the fame wall. It must be the circus that goes around me."
The currently single star, who has previously dated financier Jay Barrymore and male model George Craig, chalks up her unlucky-in-love track record to her personality.
"I'm this very weird mix. In some senses, I feel as if I'm 100 years old. In others, I still feel incredibly young, very naive and as if I haven't seen much of the world at all."
Poor, sweet Emma. Maybe she should consider taking that mini-dress for another spin?
Edward and Bella are getting married and everyone is invited -- at least invited to watch "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" trailer, in which usual suspects Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner return for high drama, death matches and a Brazilian honeymoon.
The trailer for the first part of "Breaking Dawn" teases with the ominous arrival of a wedding invitation trumpeting the union of Pattinson's Edward and Stewart's Bella, which no one seems that happy about.
Lautner's Jacob immediately goes shirtless and morphs to werewolf form while Michael Sheen's Aro looks pretty devious and Billy Burke, who plays Bella's father, can only ponder the correspondence over a can of beer.
Check out the full trailer above for a first look at Stewart decked out as a bride, some onscreen affection from KStew and RPattz, and the first rumblings of a very unexpected (and life-changing) bun in the oven.
"Breaking Dawn" is on the horizon -- the first bits of official footage are available in a new online promotional spot.
Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner will attend the 2011 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday to introduce a teaser trailer for their legion of "Twilight Saga" fans.
In a commercial hyping the awards telecast, we get some snippets of what the teaser has in store -- nothing major, just an epic vampire wedding.
We get a taste of director Bill Condon's vision for the union of Pattinson's Edward Cullen and Stewart's Bella Swan, complete with Washington forest motif, antique bridal headpieces and a flash of that major diamond ring.
Look out for cameos from Peter Facinelli and Elizabeth Reaser, as well, and stay tuned to the Ministry for the latest "Breaking Dawn" news.
Fine, Kate Middleton and Prince William will delay their royal honeymoon in favor of public service, but Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's fictional honeymoon for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" is ours to feast on.
(Warning, possible spoilers ahead for those who haven't read the book.)
The new "Breaking Dawn" pictures released by Summit Entertainment have plenty of fantastic looks at the romantic spot where characters Edward Cullen and Bella Swan celebrate their wedding, make sexy time with lots of floating feathers and unwittingly conceive a half-human/half-vampire baby.
Perhaps Kate and William should consider Fiji? Dive into our full gallery of stills, which also includes bad guys Michael Sheen and Jamie Campbell Bower, a lupine Taylor Lautner and -- big deal KStew fans! -- Ashley Greene as Alice Cullen, prepping Bella for her big wedding day.
Let the long-lead press previews on "Breaking Dawn" begin! And in that breath, never say Kristen Stewart isn't devoted to her role as Bella Swan.
With two lush, juicily airbrushed covers of Entertainment Weekly on newsstands, Stewart delivers some commentary on the final two parts of in "The Twilight Saga," which -- SPOILER ALERT! -- means those who don't want to know more details should stop reading right now.
In regards to the hotly anticipated envisioning of Bella's wedding to Robert Pattinson's Edward Cullen, Stewart was overwhelmed by how far she and her costars have come.
“There was a certain point when I walked on set, and I saw everyone from the entire cast sitting there in the pews, about to do their bit," she said of the wedding scene. "And it was just so perfect for me in that moment. It was so emotional in such a real way."
Speaking of real -- like, really real -- the staple question about the film is its depiction of the major marriage consummation scene and graphic birth of Bella and Edward's vampire daughter, Renesmee.
