'Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn Part II' Debuts Dark-Toned Character Posters

"The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn Part II" uncovers three character posters to build the anticipation of its November release. Presented in dark theme, the one-sheets feature close-up shots of Bella Swan, Edward Cullen and Jacob Black to highlight each of their signature eye colors. All three of them also include a short tagline that reads, "Forever." 

Before unveiling the promo materials, Summit Entertainment invited the "Twilight Saga" fans to a scavenger hunt game. They were tasked to unscramble all the 22 names of the new coven members. 

"Breaking Dawn II" follows a perilous chain of events after Bella gives birth to Renesmee, her half human-half vampire daughter. Along with her husband Edward and his family, she now must face an all-out battle against the Volturi, which is the fearsome council of vampire leaders. 

The fifth and final installment of the "Twilight Saga" film franchise will bring back Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner as Bella, Edward and Jacob respectively. Joining the trio is Mackenzie Foy, who will make her debut in the franchise as Renesmee. The movie will make its way out onto the U.S. theaters on November 16. 

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson Caught Kissing at Cannes

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, the lovers who never came out officially as couple, were caught sucking face at the Cannes Film Festival where her latest movie "On the Road" was screened. The rare romantic session was caught on camera at the movie's after-party on Wednesday, May 23. 

Pattinson and Stewart were mingling with the other guests in the VIP section but they later managed to sneak out for an alone time on the terrace. He reportedly whispered things to her ear and she smiled. The actor then dove in and gave Stewart a sweet kiss. He was also seen kissing her forehead at one point. 

"She put her hand on his chest," a witness told Us Weekly. "They then kissed - several times." The same witness said that earlier that night the couple enjoyed their own private karaoke session singing "Hit the Road Jack". 

The "Twilight" co-stars have been playing Tango when answering questions about their love life. When asked by Elle recently whether they were engaged, Stewart said, "Everyone wants to know. Everyone knows already - it's ridiculous." 

Miley Cyrus Flashes Side Boob While Going Out in Los Angeles

Miley Cyrus might have successfully prevented photographers from getting an eyeful of her boob, but she still gave them more than she originally intended. The former Disney darling flashed her side boob and exposed her dream catcher tattoo in a cut-out top while running errands in Los Angeles on Monday, May 21. 

During the outing, 19-year-old Miley ditched her bra but reportedly managed to hold the top to her body before her private part was exposed to the camera. The former "Hannah Montana" actress, who went barefooted, paired the sleeveless top with a blue high-waisted skinny jeans, put her blond hair in a simple high bun, and completed her casual look with aviator glasses. 

One day prior, Miley attended 2012 Billboard Music Awards in a bra-less outfit as well. She wore a Jean Paul Gaultier ivory double-breasted jacket and a mini skirt. She completed her look with Jacquie Aiche jewels and striped Christian Louboutin ankle-strap peep-toes. 

Miley has long shed her image as an innocent little Hannah Montana. "If people find that [I am a sex symbol], I take it as a compliment," the girlfriend of Liam Hemsworth gushed on "The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet". She added, "Thank you for thinking I'm sexy!" 

Regardless of what people said, "just be who you are, and that is where your style will come from, and your attitude and your spirituality and your sexuality," the teen shared. "Because it's coming from a place of love." 

Switching the subject to music industry, she opened up, "[It] used to be if you're a woman you do not sing about sex, and now if that's not what you're singing about, if that's not your entire image, you won't get played [on the radio]." 

Saying that sex was "beautiful," the popstar continued, "Kids have a TV, so they know what sex is. So educate them and let them know... it's a beautiful thing, and it is magic, and it's when you connect with somebody." 

"I was talking about this at dinner last night," she stated. "The girls that really base how much they're worth on the sexual favors they can do for somebody - that makes me really sad. Because sex is actually really beautiful. It's the only way we create, and it's the only way the world keeps going." 

Kim Kardashian Is Joined at the Hip to Kanye West in Cannes

 Kim Kardashian has grown inseparable from Kanye West. Although she often refused to openly talk about their relationship, the estranged wife of Kris Humphries is no longer hiding her affection for the "Ni**as in Paris" hitmaker from the camera as they were spotted enjoying time together in Cannes, France.

Kim and Kanye were photographed flaunting their togetherness during two different occasions on Wednesday, May 23. The couple, who began dating in April, were first caught on camera sharing a sweet embrace while waiting for their cones in an ice cream parlor. At the time, Kim wore a low-cut nude dress, while Kanye donned a black sweatshirt and jeans.

Later that evening, the twosome stepped out together again. This time, it was for the premiere of his seven-screen movie experience, "Cruel Summer", at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. They arrived hand-in-hand and posed side by side for the press, but didn't stop to talk to media. Kim opted to go with an ornate, white and gold, V-neck mini dress, while Kanye sported a white blazer, white tee and jeans.

According to USA Today, Kim and Kanye sat together at the front line inside a temporary theater near the Palm Beach in Cannes. When introducing the movie, Kanye said, "It's actually kind of surreal seeing the film come to fruition right here." It was reported that Kim was among the first to give the rapper a standing ovation at the end of the half-hour movie.

'Dark Knight Rises' Character Posters Highlight Stormy Weather

After revealing a brand new theatrical poster, "The Dark Knight Rises" uncovers a set of character posters for Batman, Catwoman and Bane. Each of the characters gets two different one-sheets, which are dominated with dark colors. The three are pictured standing tall in the middle of a stormy weather. 

Starring as Batman, Catwoman and Bane respectively are Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy. They recently shared to Total Film about their experience in portraying the famous comic characters in the final Caped Crusader movie from director Christopher Nolan. 

While Hardy gushed that he enjoyed wearing Bane mask throughout the shooting, Bale dished on Bruce Wayne's emotional condition. "He's always had this need, this drive, to take action because of the tragedy that befell him," he said. "He's not in the healthiest of places, in many ways." 

Hathaway, on the other hand, opened up that Selina Kyle has a complicated personality. "It's hard to talk about Selina Kyle because she's intensely private and mysterious. She has her own ethics, which can involve doing things other people might consider questionable," said the actress. 

Taking place eight years after the events in "The Dark Knight", "The Dark Knight Rises" sees terrorist Bane arriving in Gotham City, pushing it and its police force to their limits, as well as forcing Batman to resurface after taking the fall for Harvey Dent's crimes. The highly anticipated DC Comics film will arrive in the U.S. on July 20.

Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg Is Married

 This is officially a big week for Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Just a day after the historic Facebook IPO, the 28-year-old updated his status from "in relationship" to "married".

Zuckerberg tied the knot to girlfriend of nine years Priscilla Chan whom he met in Harvard. An intimate wedding held at his Palo Alto, Calif., home on Saturday, May 19 was initially thought to be a graduation party for Chan who earned her degree from medical school at the University of California, San Francisco, on Monday.

Around 100 family members and friends, including Facebook's chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg, attended the nuptials without knowing that it would be a wedding. "Everybody was shocked," a guest told The AP. They were served family-style food, one of them coming from the couple's favorite Palo Alto sushi restaurant.

Zuckerberg wore a dark blue suit, white shirt and tie to the ceremony while Chan wore a simple white wedding dress with veil and lace. A Facebook spokeswoman said Zuckerberg presented Chan with a ring he designed himself, "a very simple ruby."

Transgendered Miss Universe Canada Contestant Takes the Title of Miss Congeniality

 Transgender beauty queen Jenna Talackova might fall short of claiming the Miss Universe Canada crown, but she didn't go home empty handed. The 23-year-old, who was initially disqualified from the pageant on the basis that she's not a "naturally born female", was one of four women voted "Miss Congeniality" by fellow contestants.

The title wasn't the only accomplishment Talackova made at the beauty competition. Taking the stage along with 61 other Canadian women in Toronto on Saturday, May 19 night, the 6-foot-1 blonde bombshell was one of the final 12 contestants competing for the crown. Unfortunately, she didn't make the cut for the Top 5.

During an intermission at the Saturday competition, Talackova's lawyer Gloria Allred told The Associated Press, "She's still a winner as far as I'm concerned." The high-profile attorney elaborated, "She won an 'herstoric' civil rights victory and that I think is frankly more important than anything, any victory she would win, even representing Miss Canada."

Born a male, Talackova was initially selected among 65 finalists for 2012 Miss Universe Canada. She, however, was disqualified from the competition after organizers found out she had undergone surgery to become a woman. The decision was reversed days later by the Trump Organization, which owns the pageant, following threats of a lawsuit and public outcry.

"The Miss Universe Organization will allow Jenna Talackova to compete in the 2012 Miss Universe Canada pageant provided she meets the legal gender recognition requirements of Canada," Michael D. Cohen, executive vice president and special counsel to Donald Trump, said on April 2, "and the standards established by other international competitions."

While Talackova grabbed headlines as the first-ever transgender contestant to compete in Miss Universe Canada, this year's overall winner was Sahar Biniaz. Claiming the coveted crown, the 26-year-old from Vancouver will represent Canada in the international Miss Universe pageant in December.

'Battleship' and 'The Dictator' Can't Eclipse 'The Avengers' on Box Office

 "The Avengers" still holds strong on the top of North American box office for the third consecutive weekend. The Marvel superhero movie continues its victory by grossing an estimated $55.1 million for a total domestic cume of $457.1 million, marking the best showing for a Walt Disney Pictures movie ever. On Sunday, May 20, the film reaches its $1.18 billion mark globally and is close to become the fourth biggest gross title of all time.

Securing the runner-up spot on its opening weekend is "Battleship". The Hasbro game movie collects around $25.3 million, despite the fact that Universal Pictures expects it to take in at least $35 million to $40 million on its debut weekend in the United States.

"It is obviously a disappointment, but we will move on. And we have Memorial Day coming up," said Nikki Rocco, Universal president of domestic distribution. "The studio has a picture that already has a quarter of a billion dollars in the bank, and its won't die at $25.3 million domestically . We all know that."

Landing on the third place is Sacha Baron Cohen's mockumentary "The Dictator", which rakes in approximately $17.4 million on its debut weekend. Though the raunchy comedy opens with a relatively modest result, Paramount Pictures believes it will continue to overperform abroad.

Receiving a "C" CinemaScore, "Dictator" appeals to mostly male moviegoers who make up 65% of the ticket buyers. Around 25% of the audience are under the age of 25.

Johnny Depp and Tim Burton's latest collaboration, "Dark Shadows", drops one position to the fourth place this week. Falling a steep 57%, the soap opera-adapted movie bags around $12.7 million for a total domestic cume of $50.9 million after two weeks playing in cinemas nationwide.

Rounding up the top five is star-studded comedy "What to Expect When You're Expecting". The newcomer earns an estimated $10.5 million, which is below Lionsgate Films expectation. The film is projected to gross at least half of its $40 million budget on its debut weekend. 

Top Ten Movies at Box Office for May 18-20:
  1. "The Avengers" - $55 million
  2. "Battleship" - $25.3 million
  3. "The Dictator" - $17.4 million
