    Don't Worry Twihards, Summit Won't Bury 'Breaking Dawn: Part 2' Because Robsten Broke Up

    Unless you've been living under a rock, you probably already know that the relationship between Edward and Bella, aka Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, has ended due to the latter's affair with her "Snow White & The Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders. While the tabloids are continuing to try and squeeze the story for all its worth, one of the big question marks was what Summit was going to do for the press rounds of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2." Robsten, as they are known to their diehard fans, have been an integral part to the franchise's marketing, with their real life relationship one of the selling points of their romance in the films. But will they face the media spotlight once again in the wake of this highly publicized break? The answer is, duh, yes.

    Will Warner Bros. 'Justice League' Movie Tie Into 'Man Of Steel'?

    "Like what Chris Nolan is doing and what I’m doing with Superman, what they’ll do with Justice League will be its own thing with its own Batman and own Superman. We’ll be over here with our movie and they’ll kinda get to do it twice which is kinda cool," Zack Snyder said in March 2011 about the status of "Man Of Steel" and whether or not it would tie into a proposed "Justice League" movie. But a few things happened since then. Firstly, Warner Bros. would release "Green Lantern" a few months later and it would flop horribly, killing any chances of launching a new franchise. And this year, Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises" puts an end to the latest version of Batman on the big screen, putting the character away for a few years until the inevitable reboot. What's a studio to do?

    Second Seasons Of 'Girls' & 'Enlightened' Slated For January 2013 Premiere On HBO

    When you're hot, you're hot and there has been no other new show on television so far this year that has earned quite the same amount of attention as Lena Dunham's "Girls." With the first three episodes premiering at SXSW to a huge response, "Girls" hit HBO in full force in April, averaging 3.8 million viewers over that first batch of shows, leading to a quick renewal by the network. And Dunham didn't waste a single moment, going in front of cameras this summer to shoot the second season, and in less than a year, we'll have ten new episodes to enjoy.

    Watch: Fascinating Featurette On Sound Design & Music For 'The Dark Knight Rises' Plus Behind The Scenes Pics

    Much of the lead up to "The Dark Knight Rises" saw everyone involved keep their mouths shut regarding any details at all about the movie. Christopher Nolan's desire for secrecy kept pretty much every aspect of the production on lockdown, but now that the movie is in theaters, the curtain can be opened up a lot more.

    Review: Director Jay Chandrasekhar's Tentative Sincerity Steps Undermined In Uneven, Sophomoric 'The Babymakers'

    If you thought that “Knocked Up” was too mature a take on impending fatherhood, then “Babymakers” just might be the movie for you. Directed by Jay Chandrasekhar, it follows the comical misadventures of a husband who is reluctant to discover whether or not his sperm is “confused” – and if so, how he’ll handle getting his wife pregnant. Marginally more sophisticated than Chandrasekhar’s efforts with the comedy troupe Broken Lizard, “Babymakers” starts off solidly before getting sidetracked by set pieces that take over the entire narrative – and ultimately reveal how little of one there was in the first place.

    The Sound And Music Of 'The Dark Knight Rises' (Film School)

    I'm probably in the minority when I say that The Dark Knight Rises may be the least interesting and messiest of the Christopher Nolan trilogy of films; I especially didn't care for the unrelenting soundtrack that just seemed to overwhelm scenes; as I watched the film, I cherished those few moments of quiet, in which human voices were all my ears had to tolerate.
