End of Week Recap: New 'Breaking Dawn' Posters, Clip, 'Back to the Future' Shoes and a Twin Towers Movie Montage

As Hollywood returns from its post-Labor Day malaise, all eyes were on Telluride and Veince Film Festivals this week, as well as prepping for Toronto at the end of the month. We also now have a host for the Oscars as well as a slew of Twilight promotional material along with Nike auctioning off 1,500 Air Mags as seen in Back to the Future 2. But most importantly, as the ten year anniversary of 9/11 occurs this weekend, we feature a montage of the late Twin Towers in all its cameo appearances through the years. Let's take a look back at the week that was and as always, never forget...
