The vampire romance picks up where it left off in Breaking Dawn -- Part 1. After Bella (Stewart) has given birth, she awakens as a new vampire. Now Bella and Edward have to protect their newborn from a false allegation that puts the whole family in danger.

Meanwhile, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro star in David O. Russell's comedy romance about two people struggling to rebuild their lives.

The film -- which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival -- is adapted from Matthew Quick's 2008 novel and follows former teacher Pat Solitano (Cooper), who, after getting out of a mental institution, moves back to his parents' house. His life turns around after meeting the mysterious Tiffany (Lawrence).
