Robert Pattinson is wasting no time getting as far away from "Twilight's" Edward Cullen as possible. On Thursday evening it was announced that the British actor will star opposite Dane DeHaan in "Life" for director Anton Corbjin ("The American," "Control").

This summer, Cheadle will star in "Traitor," in which he plays former U.S.

"The Hurt Locker" has the killer impact of the explosive devices that are the heart of its plot: It simply blows you apart and doesn't bother putting you back together again.
