Britney Spears and her boyfriend, David Lucado, were out in La yesterday. The singer cradled one of her precious pups during the outing as David admired her nurturing interaction. In a recent interview, Britney said she wants more kids, preferably a little girl to even out her home base with sons Sean Preston and Jayden James Federline. Britney's dream of a baby girl may be on hold, though, since she will be hitting the recording studio hard starting next week. On Wednesday, Will.i.am confirmed that he is the executive producer on Britney's eighth studio album and that their upcoming studio sessions are an extension of their longtime "bonding." He went on to say he has never worked with anyone in such a close and trusting environment, including The Black Eyed Peas.

Have you ever rewatched The Hangover and thought, man, these guys are just too fresh-faced and inexperienced to properly party? In the off chance that has ever happened, you're in luck with the trailer for Last Vegas, in which aging stars Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, Kevin Kline, and Robert De Niro star as four friends who head to Sin City for one of their bachelor parties. Once there, they are ready to "party like it's 1959," and the Lipitor jokes start flowing like wine. All told, the preview is pretty cute, mostly because the actors are so beloved and really seem to be having a good time. If anything, it's worth it to watch Freeman discover vodka Red Bull cocktails and the obvious post-vodka Red Bull dancing. Last Vegas comes out Nov. 1, and you can watch the trailer after the jump. »

CBS Films has released the first trailer for director Jon Turtletaub’s (National Treasure) upcoming comedy Last Vegas. The film stars Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, and Kevin Kline as four old friends who decide to throw a Las Vegas bachelor party for the only one of them who has remained single (Douglas). This teaser trailer sells the film hard as “The Hangover with old guys,” but despite the forced premise, Last Vegas actually looks like it could be kind of fun. All four of the lead actors are Academy Award winners, and it’s interesting to see someone like Freeman just completely let loose and go full-on comedy. Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Mary Steenburgen, Jerry Ferrara, Romany Malco, and Roger Bart. Last Vegas opens on November 1st. Via Yahoo! Movies. Here’s the official synopsis for Last Vegas: Billy »

As the Cannes Film Festival gets underway today, IMDb has released its list of the 10 most popular films to have been screened in competition for the Palme d'Or, based on user votes.
