The Twilight Saga won't actually come to an end until November 2012. But Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are already expanding their resumes beyond Edward Cullen and Jacob Black, respectively.

Earlier today, we posted photo of Rob getting it on with various women in Bel Ami. Now, we have a behind-the-scenes look at Lautner in Abduction, which will find his character on the run after discovering his face on a missing persons website.

The film comes out on September 23 and features Taylor mostly during his own stunts, as seen below. Says co-star Jason Isaacs: “He could take the entire crew with his hands tied behind his back.”

Turn away, Kristen Stewart! You really don't wanna see this.

In Bel Ami, Robert Pattinson takes on a role that is as far away from Edward Cullen as one can get. He portrays Georges Duroy in this October release, a ruthless social climber who pretty much beds every wealthy woman he meets, from Uma Thurman to Christina Ricci.

The film is based on a novel and, as the following stills from it prove, if Pattinson sometimes thinks Edward is a p-ssy, it's clear in this movie that his character simply likes... nevermind.

MTV has given fans their very first look at Jennifer Lawrence in the role of Katniss Everdeen.

Their first first, very brief look, that is.

With The Hunger Games set to release its first official trailer at this Sunday's Video Music Awards, the film has provided us with a teaser for that teaser, really nothing more than a video of the famous mockingjay pin on fire... until the very end, when we see Katniss glance up, presumably somewhere in the arena.

Of course, Entertainment Weekly has provided us with a still shot of Lawrence in this beloved role. Check out that magazine shot now!

The Hunger Games comes out on March 23.

We knew Dina Lohan was delusional, but this takes the cake.

The mother of Lindsay Lohan is telling investors she can snag some of the biggest actors in Hollywood for her new movie. Yes, Di-Lo penned a movie.

Dina is trying to raise $5.28 million to shoot Growing Defiant, which "takes a hard look at social pressures that can lead a kid in the wrong direction."  

Wonder where she got that plot line.

Dina Lohan on Today

According to her business plan, the actors she'll go after include Dakota Fanning, Selena Gomez, Michael Cera, James Gandolfini, Susan Sarandon, Tina Fey, Amanda Seyfried, Hayden Panettiere, Emma Stone, and Mila Kunis.

And son Michael Lohan, Jr., in the starring role of a heroin addict.

Hilariously, an asterisked note at the bottom of the plan says this is a "suggested cast list only. Michael Lohan is the only cast member who has been signed."

Good luck landing those stars for $5.28 million total. Or at all.

A pair of THG favorites are about to hit the big screen together, as Paul Rudd and Elizabeth Banks anchor the cast of Our Idiot Brother, which comes out on Friday.

The title pretty much makes it clear, but the film centers around Rudd's Ned, the runt of a beautiful litter that includes sisters played by Banks, Emily Mortimer and Zooey Deschanel. The former told Movie Fanatic that she can relate to the concept:

"I am the oldest, bossiest daughter of a family of four... I have a 26-year-old brother who sells pizza and maybe something else while delivering those pizzas."

Rudd, meanwhile, said he could relate to one aspect of the film in particular: playing charades.

"Despite all of the battling and fighting, we come together," the actor said. "It was such an emotionally charged moment and scene. It was kind of heartbreaking, because at different points we all sometimes - as hard as you can be - you just want to play charades with your family, but you’re unable to."

For more from Rudd, read his full interview now.

The recently-released poster of The Hunger Games, with the franchise's famous mockingjay pin on fire? Very cool.

An actual trailer with footage from the wildly anticipated March 23 release? Even cooler... and on the way! (UPDATE: And here it is! Watch below!)

According to Movie Fanatic, Jennifer Lawrence will make her debut as Katniss Everdeen this Sunday night, as the first official preview for The Hunger Games airs during the MTV Video Music Awards. The planned trilogy is based on three best-selling novels by Suzanne Collins.

And in case you needed another reason to tune in for the ceremony: Lady Gaga will be kicking it off.
