The first Ender's Game trailer debuts next week, but to tide us over until then, a teaser has just been released featuring the very first footage from the film.

Take a look at the video below, featuring an intro from stars Asa Butterfield and Harrison Ford (is he beginning to sound a lot like Adam West to anyone else?):

After aliens attack Earth, the International Fleet begins training children for the next attack. Butterfield plays Ender, a boy who just may became Earth's next last hope.

Ben Kingsley (read about his latest performance in our Iron Man 3 review), Abigail Breslin, Hailee Steinfeld, Aramis Knight, Moises Arias, and Viola Davis also star.

Ender's Game, based on the novel by Orson Scott Card, debuts November 1.

After flaking on a second rehab center in 48 hours, the mercurial Lindsay Lohan is now at the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif., reports indicate.

For how long is a different topic.

Lindsay Lohan is a WRECK

The troubled star checked in late Thursday night, barely dodging a looming arrest warrant after bailing on both Morningside and Seafield earlier in the week.

The newly re-hired attorney Shawn Holley negotiated with Santa Monica City Attorney Terry White to allow her to enter Betty Ford, an acceptable rehab facility.

Lindsay, of course, is no stranger to Betty Ford.

Back in 2010, in one of her seven failed rehab stints to date, Lindsay got into a fight with a Betty Ford staffer, resulting in a criminal investigation and civil lawsuits.

Astonishingly, they took her back. She is required as part of her plea deal to spend 90 days in lockdown rehab. Think she can actually make it? Vote below:

Can Lindsay Lohan get/stay clean?

Demi Lovato says she had fewer friends - a lot fewer - after rehab than before.

And that, The X Factor judge reflects, was the biggest wake up call of all.

Demi Interviewed

In an interview with Company magazine, Demi recalled losing a number of friends when she sought help for for various issues, and how that made her feel.

"A couple of months before I went to rehab, I had a birthday party and there were a few hundred people there," she said. "People I considered my closest friends."

"When I turned my phone on after being in rehab for three months, I expected lots of text messages and phone calls. I had four texts. That was a wake-up call."

The FBI put a woman, Joanne Chesimard (also known as Assata Shakur), on its Most Wanted Terrorists list for the first time in history Thursday.

A '70s radical who authorities say murdered a New Jersey state trooper, Chesimard made a daring daylight escape from prison and fled to Cuba.

The agency and the state have a $2 million bounty on her capture.

Chesimard is actually the step-aunt of late rapper Tupac Shakur.

It's just the latest turn in the 40-year saga of Chesimard, who was part of the Black Liberation Army and one of the most notorious fugitives in U.S. history.

So much for being used for her womb.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are actively planning a wedding later this year, according to a new report, and the rapper has a surprising list of stipulations:

No media, no TV and no wedding photos sold for profit.

After a year of will-they-or-won’t-they speculation, the duo is going to tie the knot in a lavish wedding right after the birth of their child, Radar reports.

Kim will wear an “ethereal white wedding dress,” an insider claims, at a location “where they can hear the waves and be married under the moon and stars.

Kanye has signed off on all of that, as well as whichever wedding planner she chooses, but he has a few non-negotiables when it comes to the event.

Reese Witherspoon has been honest and apologetic since her arrest two weeks ago, saying she is so sorry and so embarrassed about what happened.

With good reason.

While there's no excusing Reese's disorderly conduct (or Jim Toth's DUI arrest), at least the star has been forthright and hasn't tried to make excuses.

Which makes it sort of okay to laugh at the dashcam video of the arrest, during which Reese told GMA she said "all kinds of crazy things" to the officer.

She wasn't kidding:

The tape, obtained from law enforcement sources and posted on TMZ, shows the arresting officer arresting Reese's husband Jim for DUI April 19.

At which point, Witherspoon loses it!

Iron Man 3 is one of the best superhero movies ever.

It succeeds in places The Avengers failed.

It has stuff for the casual explosion-hungry moviegoer. It has stuff for the passionate comic book fan. It has stuff for the cynical film aficionado. It satisfies all three without sacrificing much, and while still reserving the ability to surprise.

The Avengers was a great film because it codified the “Superhero franchise” as a thing. And it was action-packed, doubtless.

But ultimately, The Avengers was two giant fight scenes strung together via mostly-assumed background information.

Iron Man 3 isn’t that. It has the heart of the first Iron Man film (more, even) as well as the stylized comic book tropes - your evil scheming corporate masterminds, your superhuman abilities - necessary for a superhero film to be successful.

At one time a mainstay of email and Internet communication, Hotmail is officially dead.

In related news, Hotmail was apparently not officially dead until this week. Who knew!

Hot Mail

As of Thursday, every single remaining Hotmail account (all 14 of them) has been migrated to Outlook, Microsoft's newer and redesigned email experience.

Chillax. Your Hotmail account will be the same. Your emails will still get to you at that address. But the interface and experience no longer say Hotmail.

Outlook allows Hotmail users to use SMTP, a popular, device-friendly standard for receiving email, and integration with SkyDrive, Microsoft's cloud storage solution.

R.I.P. Hotmail. Say hi to AltaVista for us.

Sultry pop star Katy Perry has been branded the Devil Child.

By her own father, in his fiery Sunday morning sermons!

Katy Perry: Devil Child!

Firebrand preacher Keith Perry says, according to reports, that watching his daughter’s shows is such a "hellish" experience that he ends up crying.

Not because of her sexy outfits (though that would keep any dad up at night), but "because the fans are worshipping the singer instead of God."

In sermons, he has reportedly urged his congregations to "pray for Katy."
