"This is parkour. Internet sensation of 2004," Jim Halpert said in a great cold open from "The Office"....two seasons ago. But it seems Hollywood never knows an idea it can't try and revive and so the very brief street fighting/martial arts/whatever thing that was interesting for about two seconds nearly a decade ago, is now gonna have a new face to try and make it popular again.

While both RPatz and KStew are heading to the Cannes Film Festival next month (sorry Taylor, maybe next year, right?) here's a bracing reminder of why anybody cares about these two in the first place: "Twilight."

Oh, Taylor Lautner. Poised to be the next big hot new thing, his solo action adventure outing "Abduction" flopped at the box office, his starring role in "Stretch Armstrong" was scuttled and that movie he's supposed to do with Gus Van Sant (no, really) seems to be waiting to happen. So what is Jacob supposed to do now. How about comedy?

Memo to the Academy: Next year, you might want to get the writing staff of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" to write jokes for the show, because this nine-minute bit is funnier than anything that happened at the Oscars last night.

'Stretch Armstrong' Hits Theaters On April 11, 2014 But Not With Taylor Lautner; Relativity Producing Instead Of Universal

2011 was the year of the great purge over at Universal. A sudden round of belt-tightening saw the studio put the brakes on a number of projects ("At The Mountains Of Madness" and "The Dark Tower" among the most high profile), but no relationship was cut more severely than the one with toymaker Hasbro. With Universal in deep to the tune of $200 million for "Battleship," they wisely realized that maybe this whole turning toys in to movies thing isn't such a hot idea and over the last twelve months dropped a number of those projects that were brewing including “Monopoly,” “The Gathering,” “Magic,” "Clue" and "Ouija" (though Hasbro is continuing to develop them). And you can now add one more to the body count.

While this might seem totally out of nowhere, there were clues bubbling up that the unlikely duo of Taylor Lautner and Gus Van Sant would be working together. There was a very minor controversy recently when in an interview with Australia's GQ magazine, Lautner related that he had a dinner meeting with Van Sant and "Milk" screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, prompting the publication to bizarrely ask if either of them hit on him. Obviously, not exactly the brightest thing to say, and the matter made the blog rounds and then went away, but it looks like that dinner date has borne some very real cinematic results.

Review: A Brooding, Wooden Taylor Lautner Muddles His Way Through The Nonsensical 'Abduction'

In the future (it’s closer than you think!), celebrities will be an even bigger part of our society. While the pool of “famous people” will expand beyond movie stars, politicians and random public figures, we’ll find ourselves consumed by the public’s thirst for all things mega-famous. In this future, somewhere, someone will write a massive tome dedicated to the forehead of Taylor Lautner. Like the Monolith in “2001: A Space Odyssey,” it is massive, and says everything and nothing. It sits on top of the scrunched up Zardoz-of-a-face that is this curious manchild, at once Cro-Magnon and, yet, every bit representative of his teenage years. It's going to be a helluva book.

It's here. The moment we've been eagerly waiting for as much a year. The moment that meant that we couldn't go to sleep last night, for all the butterflies doing somersaults in our tummies. The moment that caused us to press the 'refresh' button 783 times in a minute, for the last 180 minutes. Yes, the latest, and presumably final, trailer for "Twilight: Breaking Dawn -- Part One" is here, debuting tonight over at Yahoo. And the good news is, it displays the same wit, invention and razor-sharp comic timing that made the three previous films such laugh riots.

It's time for another look at that disturbing pop culture, uh, thing, that is "Twilight." A new poster has surfaced for the first part of "Breaking Dawn," highlighting the intimacy between the ages-old, cradle-robbin' vampire and his human prey/wife. Presumably, this is a clip from the honeymoon, before he delivers bed-breaking, violent sex to produce a baby that later excites a horny werewolf. Yeah, this series is fucked in the head.

Dwayne Johnson and Taylor Lautner? Sure, that's the kind of bicep and pec showdown any producer would love to have, particularly if your names happen to be Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey.
