Don't mess with robot police officers. They can sense sarcasm, hurt you and offer you colorful (and probably dangerous pills).
TriStar Pictures' new extended trailer — which runs for some three minutes — sheds more light on the storyline set in 2154. Secretary Delacourt (Foster) and the wealthy live on Elysium while Max (Damon) and the underprivileged remain on Earth, pretty much rotting away.
The new preview also includes more screen time for Diego Luna, who helps prepare Max for his journey to Elysium and what appears to be the ultimate battle with a character named Kruger (played by Sharlto Copley).
Elysium, directed by Neill Blomkamp (District 9), opens stateside Aug. 9.

Today, Prince Harry and Prince William visited their grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh at the London Clinic. Prince Philip was admitted last week for a scheduled abdominal procedure, and is expected to remain there for at least another week. After being released from hospital, the Duke will spend a few months convalescing.
The Princess of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, as well as Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice, also visited the Windsor family patriarch. Charles told members of the press that his father was doing “much better,” according to the Daily Mail.
The Duke’s eldest grandson, Peter Phillips, told the press last week that his grandfather “is one of those people who wouldn't want you to stop just because he's gone into hospital.”
Most members of the royal family (including the Duchess of Cambridge) are expected to attend tomorrow’s Trooping of the Colour.
Earlier this week, William hopped a Virgin Train in Anglesey, Wales en route to the capital. According to the Huffington Post, the second-in-line carried his own duffle bag as he headed to the first class car.
More often than not, William and Kate opt for public transportation rather than private charters when traveling long-distance. They flew from LA to the UK in July 2011 via a British Airways commercial flight, and flew back home from Zara Phillips‘ Edinburgh wedding on an Easy Jet flight.

Oh, hello. I didn’t see you there! You shouldn’t sneak up on people like that. I could have a heart condition, for all you know. You could have killed me. I’m actually talking to my lawyers about whether or not I can sue you for attempted murder. Who’s gonna take care of your family and your dog, Buttons, when you’re in jail, huh??? Think about that next time you try and kill the person whose sole goal in life is to consistently feature your amazing comments in a weekly roundup. The thanks I get…
Is no one even going to call for an ambulance or a doctor? FINE. I’ll just sit here, DYING, while you read this week’s CommentBuzz. If, when you reach the end, you feel, I don’t know, like trying to help me and my now-failing heart, it would be much appreciated. *Waits patiently while dying because of your sneak-uppery.*
That’s all we have time for this week, Celebuzzers. Thanks for contributing! Remember, if you want to be featured in next week’s CommentBuzz, simply leave comments on your favorite articles.

Is Harry Styles going in another “direction”?
A new song is making the rounds on the internet today, and it comes from none other than the musical heatthrob and One Direction singer.
The leaked track is called “Don’t Let Me Go” and it’s a soft piano-heavy ballad, somewhat of a departure from the poppy up-tempo stylings of boy-banders 1D. It’s also a collaboration with UK musician Sam McCarthy.
McCarthy tweeted his gratitude for the song’s positive responses, saying, “Wow! Thanks for all the nice tweets about the song. Harry did most of the words I did the music. X.”
Harry’s words include the lyrics: “I’ll keep my eyes wide open/ I’ll keep my arms wide open/ Don’t let me/ Don’t let me/ Don’t let me go ’cause I’m tired of feeling alone.” A message to ex-fling Taylor Swift, perhaps?
Listen to the track, above. What do you think of Harry Styles solo jam?

Despite his best efforts, Kanye West‘s upcoming album “Yeezus” has leaked online. It’s not supposed to be released until next Tuesday. The leak contains ten tracks, which matches up with rumors spread around the internet earlier today. When I say West was keeping a tight lid on this thing, I’m serious. He hadn’t even released an official track list. The album also wasn’t available for preorder.
I’m not a fan of being sued so I won’t post a link to the download here, but if you want to find it yourself, I’d suggest a quick Twitter search.
I’m only five tracks in, but so far the lyrical highlight of “Yeezus” has to be “I am a god / so hurry up with my damn massage / in a French-ass restaurant / hurry up with my damn croissants.” Never change, Kanye.

It’s a bird…It’s a plane…
Actually, it’s Henry Cavill swooping into theaters as the new Superman in Man of Steel, which opened Friday.
Cavill is the latest member of the celebrity superhero club, taking on the super-iconic role played by stars like Christopher Reeve, Brandon Routh and Dean Cain before him.
Becoming a superhero always brings tons of pressure from critics, movie lovers and fanboys/girls alike. It’s hard filling the shoes of favorite comic book idols like Batman or The Green Hornet, and some celebs have done the characters proud while others didn’t quite fill the job description.
Check out some celebs who have taken on superhero roles in the gallery, above.
Who do you think made the best on-screen superhero of all time?

Wonder twin accent powers activate! Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey will be synching diction as two Louisiana detectives tracking a serial killer in HBO’s True Detective. It’s the first show greenlit since HBO execs decided all shows should begin with the word “true.”
In all seriousness, from what little the teaser shows, this show looks really exciting. The talent is top tier; Harrelson and McConaughey are joined by Michelle Monaghan and the show is directed by Cary Fukunaga. The show’s first season will jump between 1995 and 2012 as detectives Rust Cohle (McConaughey) and Martin Hart (Harrelson) try to take down a killer. Should the show be renewed, each season will follow a separate crime spree.
The eight-episode first season is set to air sometime in 2014.

Like peanut butter and jelly, Bruno Mars and the whole retro vibe go really, really well together.
Which is why fans of the 27-year-old superstar shouldn't be surprised that his latest music video takes us back to the '80s.
"Treasure," directed by Mars and Cameron Duddy (who also shot the video for "When I Was Your Man") finds the singer in his glossy best. And yes, there's a groovy rainbow-themed segment.
The single is the third off of Mars' second studio album Unorthodox Jukebox, which has sold some 1 million copies since its December 2012 release.

There is a scene in The Bling Ring where the titular teen felons hit a Los Angeles nightclub after a night of “shopping” at Paris Hilton‘s empty house. It’s all bottle service, loose cash and cocaine and the look on their faces is unmistakable: this is happiness. Sofia Coppola’s film does not celebrate these teenagers, but it certainly doesn’t indict their priorities either; it’s far too well made for such brash generalizations. While this isn’t the first of Coppola’s films with famous characters, it’s the first one in which fame looks fun. Granted, it all comes crashing down, but Coppola sure makes it entertaining to watch it all unfold.
The Bling Ring is not a complicated film. This is not to say it’s bad, far from it, but those left baffled by the ambiguous ending of 2010′s Somewhere should not fear Coppola’s take on the group of real life teens who, between October 2008 and August 2009, burglarized the homes of several celebrities including Lindsay Lohan, Audrina Patridge and, of course, Paris Hilton. More so than any of Coppola’s previous films, The Bling Ring is happy to step back and let the characters’ lives play out. It feels far less intimate than any of her previous work. This is a group of narcissistic criminals with designer clothes, unlimited data plans and a million Facebook friends. This is the American dream.
Israel Broussard‘s Marc is as close as the film gets to a protagonist. He’s the awkward new kid at the “dropout” school who falls into the wrong crowd led by Katie Chang‘s Rebecca. They bond fast in the way that young people do, initially over a pair of Miu Miu shoes they spot in a tabloid magazine. Rebecca is drawn to Marc’s corruptibility, while Marc appears drawn to Rebecca’s self-assured ways, the rare teenager with no self-doubt (and no self-awareness).
If Rebecca is bad news, her friends Sam and Nicki are tragedies. The Jude Law-texting, constantly-clubbing maybe models are played without abandon by Taissa Farmiga and Emma Watson. Fans of the cult E! reality phenomenon Pretty Wild will recognize many scenes between Sam, Nicki and their mother played by Leslie Mann as ripped directly from the show. Sadly, this gem doesn’t make the cut, but the film is based on the article Alexis Neiers (the inspiration for Watson’s Nicki) is gesticulating so wildly about. A scene depicting an interview with Nicki towards the end of the film does borrow some of the “great, amazing, talented, strong, healthy” verbiage, however.
It isn’t long before the crew graduates from stealing wallets in unlocked cars to hanging out in Paris Hilton’s nightclub room while she’s hosting parties in Las Vegas and Miami. Before leaving, they grab a couple thousand dollars worth of clothes, shoes and jewels which they accurately predict Paris will never even notice are missing. It’s here where something unexpected happens, while you aren’t exactly rooting for this band of teenage dreams, you don’t feel bad for their victims either. These are all people who’ve done nothing to deserve the fortunes life has draped on their shoulders and what’s more, they all left the doors to their gaudy mansions unlocked. Coppola’s take on this story is deceptively simple. It would be much easier to present a true crime story, good guys versus bad guys. Coppola shines the light on each character’s true, and often ugly, nature, it’s up to you to figure out what it means that these people have become the American ideal.
As always with Coppola, the film is beautiful, each shot looks torn out of the pages of a fashion magazine’s editorial spread. The Bling Ring is dedicated to its cinematographer Harris Savides, who died of brain cancer last October; this is his final film. One scene, the burglary of Audrina Patridge’s house, is particularly memorable, as it’s shot in one take, from a wide angle, as Marc and Rebecca tear through the Hills star’s floor-to-ceiling glass bungalow. Another Coppola standard, this film’s soundtrack does not disappoint. It’s poppy, unapologetic and loud. Very loud. Except for when it’s not; each burglary is uncomfortably quiet, only coyotes and helicopters in the background, Los Angeles white noise.
The comparisons to Harmony Korine‘s Spring Breakers are inevitable; during another nightclub scene (one of many) in which Watson poses for pictures with cash stolen from the home of Paris Hilton, you can almost hear Vanessa Hudgens‘ repeated mantra, “this money makes my pu**y wet.” But where Korine’s satire of youthful vanity and indiscretion is brash and booming, Coppola’s is a much smarter twist of the knife. The Bling Ring is a brilliant takedown of a culture lost to idol worship. Her film points and says, this is what you’ve allowed American culture to become. Is there really a lesson to be learned? It’s unclear, but if the film’s final shot is to be believed, no one learns anything and no one changes.

At long last, Katy Perry is Vogue-ing.
After many pop anthems, chart-topping albums, sold-out tours, and of course a few latex frocks, the Grammy-nominated singer has proven her star prowess. Now that’s landed her on the July cover of the world’s foremost fashion bible, Vogue.
Through the lens of famed shutterbug Annie Leibovitz, Perry is stripped of her saccharine-pop image to reveal a refined, romantic look. She effuses ethereal beauty in a red, white and blue floral appliquéd Rodarte dress — fitting for a July issue — with her raven hair blowing behind her porcelain face.
The cover comes after Perry popped up on Vogue.com twice this year, first sharing her personal Inauguration photo diary and then featured in a Coachella fashion roundup. For Perry’s full cover story and spread, click back to Vogue.com on Tuesday, June 18.

Are you living in Los Angeles? If so, congratulations on your eating disorder, and also, what the hell is going on out there?
The Los Angeles Times reports that, in LA, the eating disorder gender gap has nearly closed. Teenage boys in the City of Angels are twice as likely to be purging after meals or popping laxatives like Tic Tacs. In fact, 5.2 percent of boys admit they’ve purged or used laxatives to control their weight, this is compared to 6.4 percent of teen girls. Other cities like Chicago, Houston and Charlotte, N.C. are seeing higher-than-average eating disorder rates in teenage boys. The Times has an interesting theory about all this:
The article also points out that, more often than not, eating disorders are triggered not by vanity, but by some sort of mental trauma and a desire for control. Or perhaps another cause could be that most eating disorder education is targeted to girls, the article covers that as well. But, nope, it’s got to be Channing Tatum and that Twitter.
By the way, boys, no one wants you to look like this:

In Toronto for screenings of his films Drunken Master, The Legend of Drunken Master and Police Story, Jackie Chan took time to tell George Stroumboulopoulos his best story ever. He did not disappoint.
Chan’s best story ever revolves around a bit part in Enter the Dragon and meeting martial arts legend Bruce Lee. While filming, there was a small accident on set and the two men quickly bonded. Hear him tell it in the video above.

The Anger Management actor is fuming at Abraham after she allegedly leaked their private text conversations, in which they two try to coordinate a get-together, be it a “kids play date,” or “just coffee and relaxing,” or hanging with “pornstar ppl.” And Sheen is spewing that rage in a rejection letter of sorts, obtained by TMZ.
“hey, you desperate guzzler of stagnant douche agua; I truly do not recall giving you permission to globally reveal any communication between us,” he wrote to Abraham. “congrats on surviving your lobotomy and an even bigger congratz on the recent attempt at porn. your daughter must be so proud.”
Said “communication” started back in May, when Abraham texted Sheen saying she would “love to meet…at some point” even if she couldn’t secure a cameo on his FX series. Sheen seemed game, that is until the Teen Mom-turned-porn star spilled their back-and-forth for all the world to read. Now Sheen has stopped with the pleasantries.
“please send my number to middle earth and if allowed, eagerly follow it into said abyss and slam the door behind you,” he seethed in the letter. “the world will collectively sigh as the pungent memory of you vanishes into the pedestrian troposphere of lame-suck and zero-life.”
“oh and I’m sure they’ll wave the cover charge,” he added,”when they see your tranny-boobs (see here) and five o’clock shadow.”
Sounds like Abraham should forget about that play-date with the one-time winning Warlock. Well, at least she is on the cover of Metropolis Nights magazine. Never heard of it? Yeah, us neither.

Mom-to-be part deux Halle Berry stole the show at the 2013 Champs-Elysees Film Festival Thursday night in Paris, where she and husband-to-be part something Olivier Martinez showed off her ever-growing baby bump.
The 46-year-old (!) Oscar winner wore a sheer black Tramando dress and Brian Atwood shoes for the occasion, which basically looked nothing like the maternity wear my mother donned while she was pregnant with my little sister.
Earlier this week, Martinez revealed the couple is expecting a baby boy.
See more of Halle’s Parisian look in the photos, below.

Henry Cavill, he with the perfect bone structure, stars in another Superman reboot, this time Man Of Steel. You’ve heard of it, no?
Well before he donned the cape of glory, Cavill was a strapping young Brit with curly locks that made the girls go cray. He bedded the King’s sister in The Tudors and graciously left his shirt off for most of Immortals.
What better way to usher in Man Of Steel than with 20 photos of this strapping young land from the isle of Jersey?

Putting that awkward Britain’s Got Talent performance behind her, so to speak, Jennifer Lopez made her mark as one of Hollywood’s best-dressed stars at last night’s amfAR Inspiration Gala, where she arrived in this stunning oriental-inspired gown by Tom Ford.
The 43-year-old singer-actress stunned in the designer’s beaded look, which showed off all of her assets — and we mean all of them.
The 4th annual event was held in New York to benefit awareness for HIV and AIDS. Lopez was joined by a number of A-listers at the event, including Uma Thurman and Liza Minnelli.
See more photos of J-Lo in the gallery, above.

Hollywood has taken over England in the past 24 hours.
Rihanna, who's currently on the European leg of her Diamonds World Tour, was spotted at a bowling alley in Manchester. The 25-year-old superstar rocked Big Star USA "Heather" overalls while enjoying a night out on the town.
Elsewhere in England, Pippa Middleton looked lovely in a green ensemble as she watched the Men's Singles second round match on day four of the AEGON Championships. Middleton, 29, recently published a piece on her best Wimbledon experiences for Vanity Fair (where she is a new contributing editor).
Finally, Sandra Bullock turned heads on the red carpet for the gala screening of her new film The Heat over at the Curzon Mayfair in London. The crime comedy, also starring Melissa McCarthy and Tony Hale, opens stateside June 28.
Back in Hollywood, a pregnant Busy Phillips enjoyed some sunshine while out for lunch, Britney Spears carried her own bags after shopping at a crafts store in Calabasas while Matthew Morrison stopped by The Grove for an interview with Extra.
