Did you know that "Eclipse" is out next week? A LOT of people in Los Angeles do. A bunch of 'em are lined up for the premiere tomorrow night, which MTV will be covering in a big way (more on that in a little bit). It's actually a pretty amazing sight, seeing a mass of proper camping tents assembled on an LA sidewalk behind police barriers.

That's how producer Dana Brunetti felt when he saw the camped out line in the City of Angels the other night. Brunetti, for those who need a refresher, is a longtime Kevin Spacey collaborator. Together, the two founded Trigger Street Productions. They produced "21," "Fanboys" and the upcoming Facebook biopic "The Social Network," among other things. No "Twilight" though. So forgive him for mistaking the line for an iPhone 4 campout. Read More...

The seventh season of "Entourage" kicks off this Sunday, but star Jeremy Piven has a peek of what's to come for you in today's Daily TwitPic. Piven, who of course plays agent to the stars and colossal D-bag Ari Gold, poses here with rock star Lenny Kravitz, who is wearing a tallis.

Kravitz is actually half-Jewish, as Piven notes in his tweet, so the tallis is not so out of the ordinary. What I'm more curious about here is the context. Will Kravitz be having his Bar Mitzvah on this season of "Entourage"? We can only hope, right? All will be made clear soon enough. Check out the image after the jump. Read More...

Big day in sports yesterday. Hockey's Chicago Blackhawks scored an overtime goal against the Philadelphia Flyers last night to put the cap on the season with a Stanley Cup win, the team's first since 1961. Maybe not as momentous as the New York Rangers winning the Cup in '94 (suck it, Islander fans!), but a momentous occasion for Chicago residents and Blackhawks fans nonetheless.

Diablo Cody, the writer of "Juno" and "Jennifer's Body," is a native of Illinois. So as you might expect, she's a pretty dedicated Blackhawks fan. And here she is in today's Daily TwitPic, proudly showing off her team pride. Now if only the Cubs could pull one out too... Read More...


That headline is true. After the jump you'll find a picture of Christian Serratos, "Twilight"'s Angela, eating a puppy. Or preparing to eat a puppy.

She doesn't play a vampire in the movies but she's clearly developed a taste for blood. Would the Cullens approve? I don't think so. I mean, I know that they're "vegetarian" vampires, and thus only drink the blood of animals. But dogs are like stupid people. And puppies are like stupid babies. They'd probably balk at the idea of eating a stupid baby. I know I would.

There you have it. Today's Daily TwitPic: Christian Serratos eats a poor, defenseless puppy. What will her friends at PETA think? Read More...

The less Twitter-savvy among you might not be aware of the phenomenon that is Troll Foot. Danny DeVito is the greatest. Let's just get that out of the way now. He's moved more behind the lens in recent years, but I challenge you to look back on some of his classics -- "Other People's Money," "Ruthless People," "Twins" -- and call him anything less than a comic genius.

Well DeVito is on Twitter and he's got this... thing. A sort of obsession with putting his foot into twitpics. A foot which he has dubbed Troll Foot. In today's Daily TwitPic, Troll Foot gets a treasured photo op with Nick, Kevin and Joe of the Jonas Brothers, as part of a benefit to fight diabetes. And I have to say, Troll Foot looks mighty pleased with the publicity.

I still find that thing creepy though. Check it out after the jump. Read More...

The Cannes Film Festival is currently underway in France, the 63rd outing for the world-renowned celebration of cinema. There's a lot going on there this year, but it's all old hat if you've been there before. If there's anything Cannes is not, it's dull. In the more than half a century of its existence, the festival has celebrated a diverse array of important films with its prestigious Palme d'Or award: "The Third Man" (1949), "La Dolce Vita" (1960), "MASH" (1970), "Apocalypse Now" (1979), "Pulp Fiction" (1994) and, most recently, "The White Ribbon" (2009).

It didn't take the Palme d'Or, but "Easy Rider" received the First Film Award in 1969. Rightfully so: Dennis Hopper's debut as a writer/director is a truly memorable piece of film. Today's Daily TwitPic, shared by Rogert Ebert, doesn't capture the tone of the movie, but it definitely captures the cast and crew's excitement at the festival back in 1969. Ebert frequently dives into his archives for these cool looks back at film's past; you can find his latest after the jump. Read More...

"Iron Man 2" isn't out until next week, but you'd hardly know it with all of the buzz that's flying around the Internet. The architects of the Marvel sequel must be pretty pleased, especially director Jon Favreau, who also helmed the first flick.

The movie's Monday night premiere in Los Angeles is partly responsible for the buzz, as many players -- both reporters and celebrities -- have now seen it and are talking about it. The cast and crew certainly had a lot to say to MTV when we caught up to them on the crowded red carpet. The cast had a great time though, as we can see in today's Daily TwitPic. Favreau didn't snap the pic (since he's in it and all), but he tweeted it. Hit the jump to see "Iron Man 2"'s key cast & crew arrayed out across the red carpet, presumably for some group photo op.

I've got quite a lineup for you this morning in today's Daily TwitPic. "Harry Potter" star Tom Felton is a regular on MTV's Twitter-Wood feed. He's fully embraced micro-bloggery, and for that we fans can be thankful.

Felton has a lot of celebrity pals, as you might expect from guy who plays the school-age redemptive villain in the "Potter" series. In today's pic, he poses for a photo op with two other notable UK stars: Noel Clarke, who plays Mickey Smith on "Doctor Who," and Joseph Dempsie, who plays Chris Miles on the hit series "Skins," which is getting a US import on MTV to be set in Baltimore, Maryland. The threesome line up in support of the Robin Hood tax, which you can learn more about here. Read More...

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is in the news today for the choice words he had about Bill Parcells and Tim Tebow, possibly uttered while drunk. Jones is also the subject of today's Daily TwitPic, which has absolutely nothing to do with alcoholic beverages or business decisions. As far as we know.

"Entourage" star Jeremy Piven got to hang with Jones recently during a shoot for the soon-to-return HBO series about celeb life wish fulfillment. It's hard to say exactly what Jones will be doing on the show, but it's a safe bet that he'll be playing himself. Could Piven's Ari Gold and his pal/client Vinnie Chase (Adrian Grenier) be taking a trip to Dallas for some football? We'll find out soon enough; the hit series returns this summer. Read More...

Last Friday marked the birthday of Hugh Hefner, the founder of Playboy. A men's magazine which, as you know, everyone reads only for the articles.

In honor of Hef's birthday, noted film critic Roger Ebert tweeted an excellent photo from his archives: Hefner hanging out with Russ Meyer, Dolly Read and Cynthia Myers on the set of "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls." Meyer was one of the early photographers for Playboy, though he eventually made a name for himself in film with his campy sensibilities and proclivity for casting voluptuous women (see: "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls," "Mondo Topless"). Meyer was once contracted by recently deceased Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren to direct a film for the Pistols to star in. The director asked Roger Ebert to write the script; the result -- titled "Who Killed Bambi?" -- went unproduced, though the UK punk band did go on to star in their own movie: the mockumentary, "The Great Rock & Roll Swindle."
