The Rook, based on the novel of the same name by Daniel O’Malley, follows a woman named Myfanwy and her work in a secret government organization tasked with defending against supernatural forces.

Meanwhile, Twilight star Robert Pattinson talked about his experience shooting the films that made him a household name on Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio show this week, admitting that the frenzied fandom for the franchise led to his "kind of" -- his words -- fiancee, FKA Twigs, facing some racist attacks online.

"And so you kind of think, to protect it, I want to create a big boundary between it, but then it makes it difficult for your actual relationship."
