Taylor Lautner went off our radar after the "Twilight" saga ended, but clearly we shouldn't have taken our eyes off of him! The hunky actor was seen goofing around in the ocean today, showing off his chiseled bod while splashing round on the set of his upcoming indie film "Run the Tide." Photos: Tim McGraw Is Shockingly Ripped Too!Sporting some facial (and chest) hair, the 22-year-old has matured and leaned down a bit since playing the shapeshifting Jacob in the hugely-popular vampire franchise.In case you forgot, here's what he looked like just a couple years back.The actor will play the son of a drug addict who kidnaps his younger brother to protect him from their mother in the film. He was also most recently seen in "Grown Ups 2" and recently completed work on "Tracers."Besides acting, it looks like he's been keeping up on his fitness »

With the Twilight movie franchise over with, we unfortunately don't get to see Taylor Lautner shirtless on a weekly basis. But luckily for Twi-hards, the hunky 22-year-old actor recently hit the beach for some fun in the sun! While filming scenes for his latest movie Run the Tide, Lautner showed off his ever-buff body while wearing only blue swim shorts. Jacob Black's real-life alter ego flaunted his signature abs, pecs and big biceps while playing in the ocean and doing handstands on the beach with a big smile on his face. Lautner filmed several other scenes during the day of shooting at the beach, but covered up in dark pants and red flannel shirt (boo!). As for Lautner's latest »
Taylor Lautner went shirtless on the set of his newest project, Run the Tide, in La on Tuesday. He gave us a glimpse of his Summer physique as he waded in the water and did handstands on the beach. It was a pleasant surprise, as we haven't seen much of Taylor since last year, when he was photographed filming Tracers in NYC. The action flick, which is scheduled to be released later this year, is also how Taylor met and started dating his costar Marie Avgeropoulos. Run the Tide, which stirred negotiation rumors back in April, is still in the very early stages of production; hopefully that means we will see more shirtless beach scenes, especially since we got so spoiled during all those Twilight films. Keep scrolling to see the hot pictures from Taylor's day on the set, and if that's not enough, check out all of these shirtless hotties at every age. »

Oldest person in movies? (Photo: Manoel de Oliveira) Following the recent passing of 1931 Dracula actress Carla Laemmle at age 104, there is one less movie centenarian still around. So, in mid-June 2014, who is the oldest person in movies? Manoel de Oliveira Portuguese filmmaker Manoel de Oliveira will turn 106 next December 11; he’s surely the oldest person — at least the oldest well-known person — in movies today. De Oliveira’s film credits include the autobiographical docudrama Memories and Confessions / Visita ou Memórias e Confissões (1982), with de Oliveira as himself, and reportedly to be screened publicly only after his death; The Cannibals / Os Canibais (1988); The Convent / O Convento (1995); Porto of My Childhood / Porto da Minha Infância (2001); The Fifth Empire / O Quinto Império - Ontem Como Hoje (2004); and, currently in production, O Velho do Restelo ("The Old Man of Restelo").

It began with The Twilight Saga and was officially driven home by this weekend’s The Fault in Our Stars: I have hit the age where the hottest guys in Ya movies are the dads.
Sure, I can recognize the puppy-dog cuteness of Ansel Elgort, the male-model broodingness of Robert Pattinson, and the six-packiness of Taylor Lautner. But for my money, Sam Trammell and Billy Burke (cop mustache and all) as Michael Lancaster and Charlie Swan, respectively, have them all beat. It probably helps that I was introduced to Trammell and Burke outside their patriarchal roles — Trammell in True Blood »

Cannes is winding down, but it still has a couple anticipated premieres. The last major film to screen is acclaimed director Olivier Assayas's Clouds of Sils Maria. The film stars Juliette Binoche as an aging actress who is asked to star once again in the play that made her famous many years earlier, but now the part she made her name with will be played by a young actress (Chloë Grace Moretz). All the while, Binoche maintains a complicated relationship with her assistant (Kristen Stewart). After David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars, this is the second Cannes film to be about an aging actress and co-star a Twilight kid. Better find yourself an older actress quick, Taylor Lautner. »

Our wait for details on the Magic Mike sequel set to hit theaters in July 2015 is over, ladies and (gay) gentlemen. Thanks to GQ’s July 2014 cover story on Channing Tatum (read it here in its entirety) we now know the plot will revolve around our favorite male exotic dancers going to a strippers’ convention. According to GQ, that’s the first memory of his stripper days Tatum shared with his producing partner Reid Carolin when pitching the first film: “I want to do the story of when I’m in a dark U-Haul with a bunch of these guys »

Ever since the lineup of the Cannes Film Festival was announced last month, gossip sites have been salivating over an unlikely scenario: a red carpet run-in between Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. The “Twilight” co-stars and former off-screen couple both will be in attendance, although they likely won’t be posing for photographs together.
Pattinson arrives on the Croisette with a pair of anticipated films: the Hollywood-set drama “Maps to the Stars,” a competition title from his “Cosmopolis” director David Cronenberg; and “The Rover,” a midnight-screening thriller set in a futuristic Australian Outback, and helmed by “Animal Kingdom’s” David Michod.
Stewart appears as a supporting character in the Olivier Assayas drama “Clouds of Sils Maria” (playing in competition); has a market screening of “Camp X-Ray,” about a guard at Guantanamo Bay who strikes an unexpected friendship with a prisoner; and is attached to the project “Equals,” a sci-fi love »

Twilight star Lautner will join the BBC Three sitcom for its second series, stepping in for the absent Andy Samberg.
"It's great," Drew-Honey told Digital Spy. "He's a really lovely guy - we get on really well. We're just like mates.
"He's fantastically talented - not only [can he do] comedy acting, but he does all his own stunts."
"Whenever you do a show with any cast and crew, you get this bond and everybody's part of a team," Drew-Honey said. "So when it changes obviously there is that element of missing him."

Zac Efron and his dildo The new frat boy comedy Neighbors wastes no time with foreplay. The movie begins in the middle of a quickie between husband Mac (Seth Rogen) and wife Kelly (Rose Byrne, because all schlubby guys in movies deserve hot girls. It's, like, the rules of showbiz) who haven't had sex in too long. But soon it's coitus interruptus. Their daughter Stella, the worlds cutest baby (seriously cute - so gifable), is staring right at them spoiling the mood.
The movie doesn't waste time with its story either, rushing right in. Mac and Kelly are first time homeowners and they think they're getting gay neighbors (yay, property values!) only to realize that a fraternity is moving in next door. Mac's response when he first sees Teddy, »

‘Maps to the Stars’ trailer and clips: Julianne Moore goes ballistic after losing a role, Robert Pattinson learns that Mia Wasikowska’s parents are brother and sister (photo: Robert Pattinson in ‘Maps to the Stars’) The Hollywood satire Maps to the Stars, the second David Cronenberg-Robert Pattinson collaboration to be screened in competition for the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival — following Cosmopolis two years ago — is one of the most anticipated films at the festival for obvious reasons: although an international box office disappointment, the brainy, stream-of-consciousness Cosmopolis earned a number of enthusiastic reviews and was the runner-up (trailing only Leos Carax’s fellow white limo movie Holy Motors) on the list of Best Films of 2012 compiled by the prestigious Cahiers du Cinéma.

If there’s an actor with buckets of charisma, a string of roles in high profile movies yet with a sense that he hasn’t received the recognition he deserves, it’s Andy Garcia. Whether playing an idealistic gangbuster in The Untouchables or a malevolent casino boss in the Ocean’S Eleven franchise, he can turn his hand to a variety of roles. Now Garcia enters the expanding world of Mattel movies with Max Steel, an adaptation from Dolphin Films based on the popular toy line.
The story has shifted a bit over various comic book and animated incarnations, but the basic premise sees teenage boy Max use “turbo-energy powers” to transform himself into an armoured superdude. The most recent TV series saw him achieve this by merging with an alien named Steel – a chap older in years such as myself will immediately think of the cult show Sapphire & Steel, »

Following a brief, worrying detour where it looked like Taylor Lautner might be picking up the powers for Paramount, the Max Steel movie was put back in development via production company Dolphin Entertainment last August.

He has to join forces with a powerful alien known as Steel, and uses his new extra-terrestrial abilities to discover strange secrets and save the world from a terrible threat.Villafañe is playing a young woman named Sofia Martinez, while Garcia will be mysterious scientist Dr. Miles Edwards.

Robert Pattinson out of ‘Mission: Blacklist’ movie (photo: Dane DeHaan and Robert Pattinson in ‘Life’) Robert Pattinson and Mission: Blacklist have parted ways. Pattinson, whose name had been attached to the project for two years — since Cannes 2012 — has reportedly dropped out due to scheduling issues. Now, what could those issues be? Well, Robert Pattinson, best known (at least for the time being) as the vampire Edward Cullen in the immensely popular Twilight movie franchise, has no less than two movies opening at Cannes 2014: David Michôd’s thriller The Rover, co-starring Guy Pearce, which will be shown as one of Cannes’ Midnight Screenings, and David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars, also featuring Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Mia Wasikowska, and Carrie Fisher, and which is in the running for the Palme d’Or.

Robert Pattinson's sexy ex girlfriend Kristen Stewart received what some may believe it is an odd gift for her birthday recently, but says she is cool with receiving a wolf for her present. Pattinson wasn't the gift-giver, but nonetheless, the former 'Twilight' actress was reportedly ''delighted'' to receive the dangerous canine from her mother Jules when she turned 24 on April 9, and ''sees nothing wrong'' with keeping them as pets even though they are native to the wilderness. A source told the Daily Star: ''Kristen and her mum adore wolves and see nothing wrong with keeping them as domesticated pets. Jules secured the rescue wolf last month, then brought him along to Kristen's Malibu beach house as a surprise on her birthday. She was delighted, and was soon even sharing cakes with him.'' The unusual pet is likely to remind fans of Kristen's friendship with werewolf Jacob played by »
Anyone who has seen the "Twilight" movies knows that the dialogue isn't exactly their biggest attribute. (Although the dreaminess of stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner only goes so far.) Thankfully, the talented team at Bad Lip Readings has given the movies a makeover, replacing the original (awful) dialogue with only marginally more awful dialogue. The end result is the seven funniest minutes of your entire day.
The entire thing plays like a surrealist mad lib experiment and it's kind of shocking how well the new dialogue fits in with the already-existing lip movements. If you thought that the "Twilight" series would be better if Pattinson's character had access to a tambourine, well, this will scratch that particular itch (his song about dragons is priceless). There was an inherent silliness to the "Twilight" movies as they stood, this just heightens and refines things. It's a gas.
