'Breaking Dawn' trailer: Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and a wedding invitation


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.

Breaking Dawn trailer features an invitation to Edward and Bella's weddingThe 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.

'The Muppets' first trailer hits with a Jason Segel, Amy Adams spoof

A first look at "The Muppets" has hit the Web, and with the tongue-in-cheek sensibility shown by stars Jason Segel and Amy Adams, it looks as if it won't disappoint.

A faux movie trailer for a project called "Green With Envy" hit YouTube on Monday, offering an embarrassing setup for a romantic comedy about a couple (Adams and Segel) trying to reconnect after moving to Los Angeles.

The torture ends quickly, however, ushered in by laughs from Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and the rest of the gang. 

"The Muppets" arrive in theaters Nov. 23; meanwhile, check out the clip above.

Jennifer Aniston sexes it up in 'Horrible Bosses' trailer


This post has been corrected. See the note below for details.

Rachel who? Jennifer Aniston is taking a wild new direction with her film "Horrible Bosses."

Long hyped as a bit of a departure for sweetheart Aniston, the flick has a new trailer that shows her as a sex-crazed maniacal dentist.

Playing opposite newcomer Charlie Day, the actress sports dark hair, shows off her slamming body and is quite frankly up to no good — dousing her co-worker's pants with water and commenting on the shapes she can make out, drugging him and staging graphic photos, and eating things like hot dogs and bananas suggestively while clad only in lingerie.

"Picture Perfect" it ain't — but the comedy does feature capable costars Jason Bateman, Kevin Spacey, Colin Farrell, Jamie Foxx and Jason Sudeikis of "Saturday Night Live."

A racy new role isn't the only way Aniston's mixing it up. The actress is acquiring New York apartments left and right, including a downtown Manhattan gem that belonged to celeb hairstylist Sally Hershberger. Jen listed her gorgeous Los Angeles home in February and intends to live on the East Coast full time.

[For the record, 5:50 p.m. May 11: This post originally referred to actor Jason Bateman incorrectly as Patrick Bateman.]

Mike Tyson's face-tattoo artist sues over ink in 'The Hangover 2'


The artist behind Mike Tyson's famous facial tattoo sued Warner Bros. in federal court Thursday over the tattoo's design being replicated on Ed Helms' face in the upcoming film "The Hangover Part II."

Missouri artist  S. Victor Whitmill, who tattooed Tyson's face in Las Vegas in 2003, brought the suit in St. Louis court seeking to block Warner Bros. from using the tattoo in ads for the film, which is due out in late May. 

The suit alleges that Whitmill retained all the rights to the image, including the copyright, even though it was tattooed to the former boxer's face, the St. Louis Times reported. Whitmill currently works out of a studio in Waynesville, Mo.

In the R-rated film's trailer, Helms' character acquires the tattoo after a wild night of bachelor revelry with costars Bradley CooperJustin Bartha and Zach Galifianakis. Helms' character, who famously loses teeth in the first film, has to deal with the stamp on his face before his wedding day.

"When Mr. Whitmill created the Original Tattoo, Mr. Tyson agreed that Mr. Whitmill would own the artwork and thus, the copyright in the Original Tattoo," the complaint said. "Warner Bros. Entertainment, Inc. -- without attempting to contact Mr. Whitmill, obtain his permission, or credit his creation -- has copied Mr. Whitmill's Original Tattoo and placed it on the face of another actor ... This unauthorized exploitation of the Original Tattoo constitutes copyright infringement."

The ads have been ubiquitous and the appearance of the tattoo is a pivotal tease to a second cameo for Tyson despite his absence in the trailer.

Warner Bros. declined to comment on the lawsuit.

'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part 2' trailer: Daniel Radcliffe wants you to cry [Poll]

Grab a butterbeer and hang on to your wand. The official "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part 2" trailer has landed, promising an all-out magical bloodbath for the final installment of the supernatural series.

Franchise star Daniel Radcliffe, who plays the titular "Boy Who Lived," said he was glad fans were crying when they saw the teaser.

"Yes, it's the last one, for God's sake -- if we don't get them now, we won't get another chance!" Radcliffe told MTV News.

"I'm excited to see it," he added. "I think it'll be very good. It just seems like eons ago that I finished it, so it's bizarre."

And why shouldn't he be excited? Radcliffe has reportedly earned more than $90 million to date thanks to the franchise. Come July 15, when the final film is released, he'll be working overtime to break away from that lightning-scarred wizard image so many associate him with.

Drat. Until then, we'll bask in the replayable glory of the video above.

Did you get goose pimples from the trailer? Tell us in comments.

Taylor Lautner in 'Abduction': Lily Collins and Lautner's abs star in the trailer [Video]

Taylor Lautner wants you to have a happy Friday, or at least that's what the Ministry has decided — why else would he deliver his ab-tastic trailer for "Abduction" so close to the weekend?

The clip hit the Internet on Thursday, offering a first look at Lautner's post-"Twilight" chances for an action-hero career.

And they're none too shabby. Director John Singleton is clearly smitten with Lautner, sending him crashing through glass, weaving through steel beams and flying in car chases with the greatest of ease. 

His supporting cast is substantial as well, including the likes of rumored love Lily Collins (is anyone else obsessed with her eyebrows?), Maria Bello, Alfred Molina and a no-nonsense Sigourney Weaver

Check out Tay-Tay striking out on his own in the clip above.

Justin Bieber frustrated with Israeli paparazzi; Selena Gomez spotted with ex Nick Jonas

Justin Bieber, performing in the 'My World' tour in Italy, is frustrated with paparazzi in Israel
Poor Justin Bieber — the paparazzi never seem to leave him alone even when he's looking for spirituality in the Holy Land. 

Bieber, who stopped in Israel on his "My World" tour, was pestered by paparazzi and took to Twitter to vent his super frustration about his spoiled trip.

"amazing place...not a bad day. just wish got a little more space and privacy from the paps to enjoy this time with my family. Thanks" 

But the tweets from Bieber, nominated for a Webby Award Tuesday for his "takeover" of funnyordie.com, began to get progressively more irritable as the trip continued.

"im in the holy land and i am grateful for that. I just want to have the same personal experience that others have here," he wrote, later adding "You would think paparazzi would have some respect in holy places. All I wanted was the chance to walk where jesus did here in isreal."

The paps continued to snap photos of the Canadian-bred crooner, much to his dismay. But this wasn't the first time he's lashed out against the persistent photographers. In February, he flipped off a paparazzo who wouldn't leave him alone with girlfriend Selena Gomez.

Robin Wright at 'The Conspirator' premiere McAvoy plays Frederick Aiken, a wounded Union officer-turned-lawyer enlisted to defend Surratt in the film, which kicks off a passel of Civil War genre projects in Hollywood.

Kevin Kline, joined by wife Phoebe Cates and daughter Greta Simone Kline at the premiere, stars in the movie as Secretary of War Edwin Stanton. Click the pics for more red carpet photos.

Evan Rachel Wood and Alexis Bledel, who play Surratt's daughter Anna and Aiken's wife Sarah Weston, respectively, also attended the debut.

"Michael Clayton" Oscar nominee Tom Wilkinson plays Reverdy Johnson and Stephen Root, of NBC's "NewsRadio" fame, plays John Lloyd.

Also in attendance were cast members Norman Reedus ("The Boondock Saints") and James Badge Dale ("24").

"Gossip Girl" actresses Kelly Rutherford and Alice Callahan walked the red carpet with models Liya Kebede and Sports Illustrated cover girl Irina Shayk

Actress Karen Allen, who appeared in the Indiana Jones films and more recently "White Irish Drinkers," and Irish actress and model Kiera Chaplin also attended.

Fashion designer Anna Sui, DJ Sky Nellor and performance artist Marina Abramovic hit the Met for the premiere too.               

Justin Long, Danny Huston and Jonathan Groff appear in the film but did not attend the premiere.

"The Conspirator" works its way into theaters April 15.

'The Hangover Part II' trailer: Ken Jeong invited to Ed Helms' bachelor party

"The Hangover Part II" trailer hit the interwebs this week, giving viewers a sampling of the plotline in the upcoming mysterio-comedy filmed largely in Thailand. The boys are back, which means trouble is not far behind.

The film's bachelor is Ed Helms' Stu, whose fiancee (Jamie Chung, not Heather Graham) asks him to take her little brother to enjoy the last-single-man-night festivities. And it's her brother who goes missing this time, not Doug (Justin Bartha), who is on hand for the mayhem along with Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper and Ken Jeong (the infamous Mr. Chow of the first installment). Apparently, Jeong is Alan's (Galifianakis) plus-one in this adventure. A little monkey replaces the tiger and baby as the critter and cutie in the sequel.

For those concerned about the sequel living up to the original, you're not alone. Cooper is with you, and Helms says there won't be a three-quel.

Mike Tyson and Liam Neeson will also appear in the Todd Phillips film, which hits theaters May 26.
