'Breaking Dawn' teaser shows Edward on his wedding day

There wasn't much to see when the movie poster for “Breaking Dawn – Part I" arrived, but a new snippet from the movie is giving fans a little bit more to work with.

MTV will air a sneak peek from the upcoming “Twilight Saga” installment during Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards, and to whet the appetites of Twi-hards the network has unleashed a 15 second video.

Even in that tiny span of time, fans get to see what the ceremony looks like, the back of Bella’s (Kristen Stewart) head and her ring, plus a shot of Edward (Robert Pattinson) in his wedding tux.

'Hunger Games' trilogy may get 'Twilight' treatment

There's been crazy anticipation for all things “The Hunger Games” ahead of the movie’s 2012 release, and the film’s studio Lionsgate is trying to maintain that buzz for as long as possible.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the studio is planning to make the “Hunger Games” trilogy into four movies, not unlike the extension the “Twilight” and “Harry Potter” books have received on screen.

Penned by Suzanne Collins, "The Hunger Games" trilogy tells the story of Katniss Everdeen, a 16-year-old in a post-apocalyptic world where kids are forced to participate in brutal televised battles.

Jennifer Hudson lands role in 'Three Stooges'

The ever-growing "Three Stooges" cast has added another member. According to Deadline, Jennifer Hudson has landed the role of Sister Rosemary in the Farrelly brothers’ “Three Stooges.”

The Oscar winner isn’t the only nun on set, though: Larry David has signed on to play Mother Mengele and Jane Lynch will fill the role of Mother Superior.

Deadline’s guessing that Hudson will play the nice nun at the orphanage where Larry, Moe and Curly are raised, as Lynch’s Mother Superior will be busy doing whatever it takes to get the three pranksters adopted and out of there.

With Hudson on board, there are now three nuns for each of the “Three Stooges,” spots that were filled after an exhaustive search. To recap: Sean Hayes landed the role of Larry, Will Sasso will be your Curly, and Chris Diamantopoulos will portray Moe.

Celebs on Twitter: Who else has been hacked?

For celebrities, communicating with fans is as easy as typing 140 characters and clicking “tweet.” But as these five celeb tweeters would probably tell you, easy access isn’t always a good thing.

After a lewd TwitPic briefly appeared on Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner’s Twitter account over the weekend, he denied sending the photo, saying his account was hacked. On Wednesday, the congressman told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer he hired a law firm to look into the matter - which has been dubbed by the media as “Weinergate.”

Whether Weiner’s account was actually hacked or not remains to be seen, but, for what it’s worth, Donald Trump isn’t buying it. Below, a few celebs who've been hacked:

Could 'The Event' continue on Syfy?

When NBC cleaned house to make room for new programming, newcomer “The Event” was one of the shows that got the ax.

Yet the creator of the sci-fi drama, Nick Wauters, held out hope that “The Event” wouldn’t be out of commission for long. "Alas #theevent will not be back on NBC next season but we r actively pursuing other avenues to keep the show alive," he tweeted. "Stay tuned for more info!"

It looks like his promise may come to pass: Deadline reports that Syfy is talking about running “The Event” as a miniseries.

So - is Rihanna's 'Man Down' video too violent?

So - is Rihanna's 'Man Down' video too violent?

Certainly you've heard the uproar by now. Following her racy performance at the Billboard Music Awards that had some questioning if it was too much for TV, Rihanna's latest music video has lit a similar match.

The singer's video for her single "Man Down" premiered Tuesday evening on BET, and by the next evening, some were calling for the network to stop playing the video altogether.

The problem, the critics say, is that her video starts off with an action that depicts the song’s lyrics to a tee – viewers see Rihanna aim, fire and shoot a "Man Down."
