Release Date: Friday 2nd March
Based on the novel by Guy de Maupassant, BEL AMI chronicles the rise of penniless ex-soldier Georges Duroy (Robert Pattinson, THE TWILIGHT SAGA, REMEMBER ME) through the echelons of the 1890s Parisian elite and is a tale of ambition, power and seduction.
Also starring Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Christina Ricci and Colm Meaney. BEL AMI is a timeless epic with a modern twist. A Dangerous Liaisons for a new generation.
Director: Bill Condon
Cast: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner
After David Slade's solid Eclipse, The Twilight Saga begins to climax in Part 1 of Breaking Dawn, Stephenie Meyer's bonkers conclusion to her furry, fanged love triangle. A divisive book even among fans, Bill Condon's adaptation was always bound to draw snide jokes from the blokes in the room - a shame, as Meyer's central premise (a relationship between the living and undead) is a classic trope of the genre and one that, in its best moments, has all the poignancy and tension of Tomas Alfredson's mature Let the Right One In. Filtered through the haze of hormonal teen romance, of course.

Release date: Friday 18th November
They met in Twilight, parted in New Moon and fought together in Eclipse... Now, in the penultimate film in the epic saga, Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) will finally vow to be together forever as they become husband and wife.
In The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 , Bella is awkwardly adapting to life as Edward’s fiancée. As Alice, the Cullens and even Renee happily get swept up in preparations for the wedding of the century, the 18-year old Bella contemplates life as an immortal and the realisation of leaving behind her friends and family.
During an idyllic honeymoon, the happy couple finally succumb to passion but the unexpected happens as Bella discovers she’s carrying a baby and this pregnancy is accelerating fast. As Jacob instinctively protects his friend, his wolf pack divides and Jacob, Bella and Edward all have to make decisions that will change their lives forever whilst contending with a threat that could destroy their world.
The suspenseful and deeply romantic Breaking Dawn Part 1 continues the epic tale of supernatural fantasy and passionate love that has made The Twilight Saga a worldwide phenomenon.
So this turned up on t'Internet this morning. It's got Robert Pattinson, it's got Kristen Stewart, it's got marriage, it's got people saying "as long we both shall live" in dramatic voices, and - yes - it's got vampire sex. Mmm, baby, vampire sex that's so good you want to reach up and crush a window sill with your bare hands. Oh yeah.
This is the new Twilight: Breaking Dawn: Part 1 trailer. Hide your children. And your IKEA furniture. And get ready for the best line reading of the year, when Carlisle says (with a completely straight face): "The foetus isn't compatible with your body. It's too strong." Let the Oscar campaign start here.
Twilight: Breaking Dawn: Part 1, directed by Bill Condon, is released in the UK on Friday 18th November.
Thor thundered ahead at the UK Box Office this week, holding on the top spot after its £5m debut.
Marvel's superhero lost around 40% of last week's takings, but has hammered together a £9.5m running total, which will keep the makers of The Avengers happy for now.
Fast Five is right behind the God of Thunder with £1.6m stashed firmly in the boot. After three weeks on release, Vin Diesel's racer has accelerated past the £13.5m gross from the last Fast and Furious film, making it the fastest and most furious in the whole series. Bald men up and down the country will be sweating profusely with excitement.
Insidious, meanwhile, is in a strong third position, boasting a teeny 9% drop as people begin to spread the word about the Saw director's horror film. It's almost at the £4m mark in total, but expect this one to reach a fair bit higher than that.
All the three holdovers held back the weekend's new releases. Emerging at the head of the pack is Water for Elephants, the watery film about elephants and Robert Pattinson. Thanks to previews from Wednesday onwards, R-Patz beat Saoirse Ronan's Hanna to the UK Top Ten's fourth spot. But we all know she could take him in a proper fight.
Which one's water and which one's the elephant?
While Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon argue amongst themselves, here's a little about the plot: it involves two people who "come together through their compassion for a special elephant". It's set in a circus, before you get any ideas. Perverts.
Jacob is apparently a veterinary student, not that you see him do any veterinarianing. And Marlena? Well, she's a performer in a circus. Which basically involves her doing stuff with elephants in front of a paying audience. Perverts.
It's easy to mock their love, especially when the statistical majority of human-elephant relationships end in crushing disappointment. But against all the odds (that's a direct quote from the official synopsis), they find life-long love. That is, until Christoph Waltz - Marlena's dangerous husband - tries to kill Robert Pattinson with a hammer. That particular highlight is at 1 min 19 seconds.
Water for Elephants is out on Friday 22nd April. Read on to see the whole trailer.
With the news that Breaking Dawn will have a big break in the middle of its two parts (to the tune of one year), Twilight fans and studio monkeys are running around in pure chaos. What can they do while waiting for Part Two on Friday 16th November 2012? The answer: Babar The Movie.
Yes, Twilight producers Temple Hill have hit on a franchise with an even bigger following than Stephenie Meyer's vampire saga: Babar the elephant. They've done a deal with Nelvana and the Clifford Ross Company and are all set to bring Jean de Brunhoff's grey trunked hero to the big screen.
Babar first made his French appearance in 1931's Histoire de Babar, before hitting these shores in 1933. When Brunhoff died in 1937, his son Laurent (not the vampire) took over writing duties in 1946. Now that's a literary heritage and a half. Not to mention that amazing TV series.
Babar, a young elephant who winds up being crowned king, will get his cinematic outing in Babar: The Adventures of Badou. Sweeping the dictatorship and colonial issues aside, expect a lovely animated outing for all the family. Featuring rhinos, warfare, big ears, and that adorable cute little crown. Rumours of a guest appearance by Robert Pattinson are unconfirmed. But the schedule for Temple Hill is pretty well mapped out now: vampires, vampires, elephants.
Director: Chris Weitz
Cast: Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner
It's been 12 months since the last onslaught of pale-faced emoting emo teens, but just in case the thousands who flocked to the first Twilight film have developed some pigmentation in their skin, here comes its bigger, even more emo sequel. Clocking in at 130 minutes, New Moon gives its giddy groupies plenty of time to sit in the dark and pine. Oh, the pain of it all.
Yes, you read that correctly. She killed Bill, and now she's going to roger Robert. Uma Thurman is all set to star opposite Twilight teen heartthrob Robert Pattinson in Bel Ami. The film, based on Guy de Maupassant's story of the same title, sees journo George Duroy (Pattinson) sleeping with the city's top women in order to get ahead. You can already hear the fangirls screaming.
Uma will play the wife of one of George's friends, who mentors George's career before eventually marrying him. Also vying for some bed-time with Pattinson is Kristin Scott Thomas, who will play one of his mistresses (apparently the clingy one).
Theatre director Declan Donnellan will be making his feature debut with Bel Ami, which has been adapted by Rachel Bennette. Shooting begins in Paris next year. The sex will begin soon after.
London was painted red last night. Red with the blood of fans desperate to catch Robert Pattinson's eye and hopefully set his saliva glands tingling. Gathering at Battersea Evolution for the "UK Fan Event" of New Moon (the nearest it's getting to a premiere), hordes of obsessed teenagers were waiting to scream down the eardrums of stars Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart, not to mention director Chris Weitz (whose sex appeal holds less sway with the youngsters).
Standing there with gruff stubble and crooked half-smile, Robert was all vampiric for the crowds, occasionally baring his fangs with a loud smile as he was mobbed for autographs, photos (and much more). Taylor got the same treatment - goodness knows why when neither are that hot (check out this candid shot of Lautner's face). Still, at least they had better dress sense than Kristen Stewart...
Feel your Stephenie Meyer senses tingling? Then read on for a sprinkling of photos from the chaotic Twilight first night showing. And go easy on the self-sacrifice: Robert can't see you from there.
