The epic finale that will live forever! You gotta love how modest Summit Entertainment is being about the final installment of the "Twilight" saga in their latest, jogging-happy, poster. Twihards will always complain about how movie bloggers tend to be haters about the "Twilight" series, but considering the marketing, the premises and some of these recently released photos, can you really blame us?

David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" opens in New York and Los Angeles today. It's one of the most genuinely weird cinematic experiences we've had this year (and we mean that in a good way). We got to talk to Cronenberg and his leading man Robert Pattinson, who stars in the film as a disaffected young millionaire who prowls New York City in a limousine, dodging a potential assassin, meeting various business associates, and talking endlessly about his existential plight in the midst of economic upheaval. We chatted with Cronenberg about how the project came to be, what it was like to shoot digitally, and much more.

To say that Robert Pattinson has been filling his post-"Twilight" calendar with ambitious films would be an understatement. This weekend brings his trippy David Cronenberg odyssey "Cosmopolis," and over the past few weeks and months, the actor has signed on to a handful of interesting films, including "Mission: Blacklist" about the hunt for Saddam Hussein, Werner Herzog's historical tale "Queen of the Desert" and "Animal Kingdom" director David Michôd's "The Rover." And it's the latter about which the actor has shared some tantalizing details.

Review: David Cronenberg's 'Cosmopolis' Is Both An Excellent Adaptation & A Rich, Complex Character Study

"Cosmopolis," an adaptation of Don DeLillo’s typically provocative novel of the same name, is the first feature film since 1999's "eXistenZ" that filmmaker David Cronenberg has directed and scripted. This in part explains why "Cosmopolis" is such a triumph: it’s both an exceptional adaptation and a remarkable work unto itself. Cronenberg makes slight but salient changes to DeLillo’s source narrative. These changes, which are best described by one character as “slight variation[s],” prove that Cronenberg’s given serious consideration to what should and shouldn’t be represented in his adaptation of the author’s ruminative, conversation-driven narrative. For example, in Cronenberg’s film, Eric Packer (a surprisingly adequate Robert Pattinson), an ambivalent and self-destructive power broker, does not get to have sex with his wife like he’s wanted to do throughout DeLillo’s book. Other changes, like the fact that Packer is investing and studying the steady rise in the Chinese yuan in the film and not the Japanese yen, as in the book, are equally striking. These differences noticeably enrich DeLillo’s original story, making Cronenberg’s "Cosmopolis" that much more rewarding in its own dizzying way.

Now, this is how you not only get over a breakup, but continue to build a helluva resume. Say what you will about Robert Pattinson, but he is using his "Twilight" fame to take on challenging, interesting projects. Over the past few months, he's attached himself to "Mission: Blacklist" about the hunt for Saddam Hussein, a mystery movie about The Band, and "Animal Kingdom" director David Michod's "The Rover." But wow, we could not have seen this next move coming.

So, in addition to serving as the final chapter in "The Twilight Saga," will 'Breaking Dawn Part 2' also be a scrapbook to Robsten, one of the great cinema romances of our time? Certainly, the picture of them gazing lovingly at each other in this batch of new images from the sequel carries with it a certain amount of weight. Will KStew and RPatz fans be able to contain their tears? Yes, this movie asks big questions...

All snark aside, the recent personal life revelations about "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart, and its implications on her real-life relationship with co-star Robert Pattinson, have made sad reading, just as it's always sad to hear that any nice-seeming young couple are having difficulties. There's always many facets and sides to such a story, and as enticing as the gossip can be, we've all been in similar situations ourselves, on any number of angles, and it's hard not to feel for all involved.

Don't Worry Twihards, Summit Won't Bury 'Breaking Dawn: Part 2' Because Robsten Broke Up

Unless you've been living under a rock, you probably already know that the relationship between Edward and Bella, aka Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, has ended due to the latter's affair with her "Snow White & The Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders. While the tabloids are continuing to try and squeeze the story for all its worth, one of the big question marks was what Summit was going to do for the press rounds of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2." Robsten, as they are known to their diehard fans, have been an integral part to the franchise's marketing, with their real life relationship one of the selling points of their romance in the films. But will they face the media spotlight once again in the wake of this highly publicized break? The answer is, duh, yes.
