Bella "was born to be a vampire. " Stewart quite literally vamps it up in the new teaser, getting gussied up in that gorgeous-vampire sort of makeup of the "Saga" and that bloodthirsty-red contact lens treatment. And yes, she kind of dazzles us too. Lautner's Jacob Black is eating his words about Bella's transformation. "I didn't expect you to seem so -- you?" Those hoping that Bella would shed the T-shirt, thermals and tousled hairdo will have to keep hoping.

Sofia Coppola's eccentrically low-key film "Lost in Translation" swept the Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday, winning best feature, screenplay and director, and Bill Murray was named best actor for his role in the film as a sleepless, past-his-prime action star who crosses paths with a younger but similarly alienated American in Tokyo.

Watching "Tank Girl" is as disorienting as waking up in someone else's bad dream. You want to get out as fast as possible, but all the exits seem to be blocked. Busy on the surface but numbing everywhere else, this largely live-action version of the cult comic book plays like an extended video for a group that is never going to make it.

But for the film business, it's also something far more consequential: its future. Movie studios are taking timeless stories from authors such as the Brothers Grimm and L. Frank Baum and reimagining them with a modern, playful sensibility.
