Not even Brad Pitt can slow down The Twilight Saga. At least not when he's starring in an awful, awful movie.

Indeed, Breaking Dawn Part 2 reigned supreme at the box office for the third consecutive weekend, raking in $17.4 million and lifting its domestic total to $254.6 million.

That's nearly $10 million more than the first Breaking Dawn installment had garnered at this stage in its run, while the conclusion to the franchise is on pace for a record $800 million around the globe.

Pitt, meanwhile, flopped tremendously with Killing Me Softly, which took in a mere $7 million, earning an overall F from audience member who voted in CinemaScore. OUCH!

Really, that's the title. Way to make it your own guys.

The Amazing Spider-Man may be able to crawl on walls, spin webs and so forth, but he is just a fictional character in the end ... this guy, Peter Parkour? He's real!

Clad in the superhero’s iconic red and blue colors, the mysterious man scales buildings across the UK to promote the Blu-ray/DVD release of the aforementioned film.

He may be more fun to watch than the movie itself:

He does backflips in parks! He does handstands on bridges! He climbs buildings! Is there anything he can't do? Probably a lot, but just go with it people.

Has Jason Flemyng let the cat out of the wildly anticipated bag?

In an interview with Hey U Guys at the UK Seven Psychopaths premiere, the actor was asked about working again with good friend and director Matthew Vaughn.

On Star Wars Episode VII, perhaps? Hey, it's possible, Flemyng replied... before quickly realizing that he may have revealed a bit too much.

Watch his reaction now and then decide: Will you be happy if Vaughn does, indeed, end up behind the camera?

According to Hit Fix sources, the young star "absolutely will be appearing" in the upcoming Justice League movie as the Caped Crusader.

The announcement may even be tied to Man of Steel in some ways, with director Zach Snyder hinting recently that the blockbuster may be part of something bigger, superhero-wise.

Meaning what, exactly? That the closing credits will include Superman swooping down on to a rooftop and bumping fists with Gordon-Levitt's Batman? Who the heck knows.

But we do know Christian Bale is finished with this role. Would you want to see Gordon-Levitt take it over?
