The winners of the Fox Network's 2010 Teen Choice Awards were announced yesterday (with the actual awards show airing tonight, Monday, August 9th, at 8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), and to say that vampires dominated the event is an understatement. The Twilight Saga movies (both New Moon and Eclipse) scored twelve of the surfboard-shaped trophies while The CW's popular "The Vampire Dairies" took home seven.
In celebration of the lunar eclipse on the evening of June 26th and in anticipation of the theatrical release of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse just four days later, Summit Entertainment is inviting everyone across the nation to "Twilight Night," a 12-city event including free outdoor screenings of Twilight and/or The Twilight Saga: New Moon.
Who would have thought after sweeping last year's MTV Movie Awards that Twilight could come back and make it two years in a row? But that's exactly what the saga of sparkling vampires and underwearwolves did last night with the sequel New Moon picking up every top honor and winning in every single category for it was nominated.
The nominees for the 2010 MTV Movie Awards have been announced, and shock of the century! The Twilight Saga: New Moon did not garner the most nominations. That honor went to The Hangover, but New Moon does boast a respectable five nominations. In addition, MTV has created a new category that should appeal to horror fans: Best Scared-as-Shit Performance.
It's official. The Twilight Saga craze is alive and well and growing exponentially with each new release. The Twilight Saga: New Moon sold just over 4 million DVD units in its first weekend of release, surpassing the first weekend sales of its predecessor Twilight, which sold 3.8 million DVD units.
Twilight Saga News: New Moon Wins ShoWest 2009 Fan Choice Award; Summit Courts Oscar Nominees for Breaking Dawn
In what should be a surprise to no one, The Twilight Saga: New Moon is receiving the ShoWest Fandango Fan Choice Award for 2009's Best Movie. ShoWest, which runs March 15-18, 2010, is the most prestigious and longest running event exclusively for the cinema exhibition and distribution community, and this is the second year Fandango has sponsored the Fan Choice Award in conjunction with the conference.
It's not a huge list of home video releases this week, but some pretty huge films are on it, including The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which is getting a midnight release this Saturday morning, March 20th. But we know that's not what you're here for -- more than likely you'll be picking up flicks like The Fourth Kind, Park Chan-wook's Vengeance Trilogy, and/or (our pick of the week) Ninja Assassin.
What with all the excitement about the release of the new trailer for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, you might have forgotten that New Moon is poised to bow on DVD and Blu-ray at 12:01 AM on Saturday, March 20th. But instead of heading out to your neighborhood video retailer, both Comcast and DirecTV have some motivation for you to watch the flick via their VOD channels in the form of exclusive bonus material including director commentary, making-of, theatrical clips, and assorted documentaries.
With the DVD and Blu-ray release of The Twilight Saga: New Moon just a few short weeks away (at 12:01 AM on March 20th to be exact), its director, Chris Weitz, has been making the interview rounds, and today came word that as far the Breaking Dawn installment is concerned, he thinks someone else should probably take the job.
It's that time of year again: The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films has announced the nominations for its 36th Annual Saturn Awards.
Taylor Lautner's face has been all over the news lately what with him being linked to as many new projects as Sam Worthington AND finally becoming legal (his 18th birthday was Feb. 11th). And now, thanks to the Tonner Doll Company, that familiar baby face will forever be memorialized in doll form as Jacob Black joins fellow Twilight characters Bella, Edward, James, Laurent, and Victoria.
Things are getting downright ridiculous in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn land. First Deadline Hollywood reports that "it's definitive. Filming on [two] back-to-back [Breaking Dawn] movies would begin in mid-October, and Summit Entertainment is looking at 'high end' directors." But then MTV states Summit told them, "No decision has been made." Further muddying the waters, The Hollywood Reporter chimes in with word that "the halls of Summit are also alive with the parallel potential of filming the last film — or films — in 3D."
Fans of The Twilight Saga: New Moon might be a little disheartened after today's announcement of the Razzie Awards nominations, but since we know nothing cheers you up like playing with your toys, we thought we'd pass on some better news: The Tonner Doll Company has two new Twilight Character Figures to add to your collections.
Summit Entertainment has decided to change things up a little with regard to its Blu-ray and DVD release of The Twilight Saga: New Moon. Instead of the typical Tuesday when most new home videos come out, they're going with 12:01 AM on March 20, 2010 – a Saturday street date that will allow for fans across the nation to celebrate at retailers' midnight release parties before taking the film home.
