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.
We need more scary alien invasion flicks right now about as much as we need more giant monster movies, man! Thankfully there's another coming our way as Right at Your Door director Chris Gorak is readying a tale of terror that will offer a glimpse of the world suffering through The Darkest Hour.
As The Twilight Saga: Eclipse fans anxiously await their first viewing of the film's trailer before Robert Pattinson's new flick Remember Me next Friday, March 12th, there are some things going on behind the scenes that might give them pause: A new editor is being brought on board, and a song by Muse, a band that has provided material for both previous installments in the series, has been dropped from the soundtrack.
There's been a little bit of doubt concerning whether or not Summit Entertainment's latest take on the tale of everyone's favorite bloodsucker Dracula, entitled Vlad, was going to happen. Good news came today, however, as the studio has tapped a writer to polish the film's original screenplay. One who possesses some genre bite!
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."
Late last month we learned that Summit Entertainment plans to release the Twilight in Forks: The Saga of the Real Town documentary on March 20th (the same day as the New Moon DVD). However, another company, Topics Entertainment, is attempting to steal a bit of Summit's thunder by debuting its own doc, entitled Forks: Bitten by Twilight, on March 16th. As you can imagine, this isn't sitting well with Summit ... or its legal department.
With the media machine in place for The Twilight Saga: New Moon's March 20th DVD and Blu-ray release, it seemed logical that things would be quiet on the Eclipse front. But things aren't always as they seem as director David Slade has been quite vocal lately, tweeting about the progress of his editing process.
Back in September Summit Entertainment snapped up the rights to a documentary about the real-life Forks, Washington, the teeny rain-soaked logging town that Stephanie Meyer used as the setting for her uber popular tweener series. Now, finally, they've revealed the details of how they'll be distributing it.
Is it just me, or has the media machine for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse been strangely silent? Considering the frenzy that surrounded New Moon, Eclipse seems downright staid. But that's okay -- a little restraint can be a good thing and adds a bit of class to the proceedings. Speaking of which, Eclipse just got a huge dose of class with the naming of the composer of its score: Howard Shore.
You know what's missing from today's zombie flicks? Romance and love! Well, sort of. But that's how Summit Entertainment is hoping you think as it gears up to give us a few Warm Bodies to cling to.
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.
We're already well into the new year, and still there's been no confirmation as to the means by which Summit Entertainment plans to unleash the final chapter in The Twilight Saga known as Breaking Dawn onto the throng of tweens and cougars who are anxiously awaiting it. Will it be one film or two? Is this causing "drama" between author Stephenie Meyer and the studio as alleged by some in the media?
We first saw it back in early October from a scanned copy of People Magazine, but today Summit released the first official hi-res still from David Slade's The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.
