As Dakota Fanning continues to blossom into womanhood, causing older guys everywhere to begin feeling creepy and unclean, the former child acting moppet is now officially set to vamp it up in New Moon, the next tweentacular installment in the Twilight film series.
Well, it only makes sense that, in honor of the vampire romance saga Twilight coming to DVD, there would be some nocturnal festivities to celebrate one of the biggest pop culture spectacles in recent years.
I think I die a little inside every time I have to do a story about one of the Twilight movies, but I guess that’s just how much I care about making sure you guys are informed. Though I seriously question how much of our readership is waiting with bated breath for more Twilight updates.
Insanity is the rule of the day over at Summit Entertainment, which has just announced that the third movie in the Twilight “saga” (which is an insult to the word “saga” if you ask me), Eclipse (book review), will be out in theaters on June 30th, 2010.
I really don’t get why people are so obsessed with the Twilight sequel, New Moon, especially since the first film was more or less universally slammed for sucking, but we just go with the flow ‘round here most of the time, even if it is confusing.
All you Twilight fans must be psyched that so much effort is being put into separating you from your hard-earned money. The latest attempt at this is a super-special collector’s edition that will only be available through Amazon, which you can see on your right.
Wow, it really is becoming the Harry Potter franchise with vampires ... Thompson on Hollywood has learned that both Juan Antonio Bayona (pictured, The Orphanage) and James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma) are eying possibly directing the third movie in the Twilight franchise, Eclipse.
Like it or not, deny it or not, Twilight is a phenomenon. Comparisons have been made to it being Harry Potter for girls. I'd say it's more like a Star Wars prequel for girls - a not-so-good movie based on a hugely popular property that hardcore fans are determined to love regardless of how not-so-good it is.
We, as horror fans, actually now have a damn good reason to give thanks to Twilight. According to Platinum Dunes producer Brad Fuller, the planned remake of Near Dark has been canceled because of it.
You know it’s a slow news day when we’re doing stories on who will be in the director’s chair for New Moon, the upcoming Twilight sequel that Catherine Hardwicke recently stepped away from due to creative differences.
I don’t think it’s a smart idea for Summit Entertainment to fuck with a good thing, box office-wise if not quality-wise, so early out of the gate.
Well it was only a matter of time, wasn't it? Twilight dolls are now on their way so let's get ready to accessorize, shall we? *Cues the incessant and shrill swooning of fifteen-year-old girls everywhere*
So it seems Twilight was worse than even we expected, and we’re pretty damn jaded, so of course we had to get together and chat about it a bit. Of course by “chat” I mean spew hate and venom for 45+ minutes.
Thanks to a $70.6 million opening weekend, the teen protagonists of vamp romance Twilight will definitely be returning for at least one sequel.
