Rated PG-13

The opening dream scene in the meadow gets me every time as Bella sees herself as old with Edward. I think it is a beautiful concept as Bella (Kristen Stewart) worries about aging while her true vampire love Edward (Robert Pattinson) stays forever young at seventeen, and will not turn her. It’s Bella’s birthday, and as much as she “doth” protests, everyone reminds her of the celebrating. She really doesn’t get Edward’s attitude, until her disastrous birthday party at the Cullens where she almost becomes dessert that Carlisle (Peter Facinelli) explains it all to her.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

The finale of any long-running movie franchise feels so incomplete without having a studio run some sort of special movie marathon. Think of it as the penultimate event before you wave farewell to a beloved story, well that is until a studio reboots it. So like The Lord of the Rings, or The Avengers, The Twilight Saga is getting its very own movie marathon before the showing of the final chapter of the film franchise.

And like most movie marathons, this one will be shown one day before the official release of the final film. The Twilight Saga is made up of five films, which were adapted from four books. The fourth and final book was adapted into two parts.

Taylor Lautner Dumps ‘Max Steel’ To Be With ‘Stretch Armstrong’

Stretch Armstrong

We all know that Taylor Lautner has been Mr. Popular since Twilight and The Twilight Saga: New Moon have hit theaters. Job offers and casting announcements have come often, including for roles in teen superhero project Max Steel, a possible remake of Vision Quest, and the latest announcement that he would become Stretch Armstrong in the new toy-turned-movie project.

Along with other films like Abduction, Cancun, and of course The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, it appears this onslaught of jobs was just a little too much for the 18-year-old actor, and he has decided to step away from the Max Steel role. Lautner also walked away from a film called Northern Lights recently as well.

‘The Twilight Saga’ Star Taylor Lautner May Also Star In A ‘Vision Quest’ Remake

Vision Quest

Not too long ago it was reported that Taylor Lautner, star of Twilight and The Twilight Saga: New Moon, had been cast as the lead in Paramount’s planned teen action flick Max Steel (Read: Resident ‘Twilight’ Wolf Pup Taylor Lautner To Become ‘Max Steel’). It appears now that the 17-year-old actor didn’t stop there: E! Online is reporting that Lautner is now also in some talks to take on the lead in a remake of 1985’s Vision Quest.

The original Vision Quest told the story of a mediocre high school wrestler (played by Matthew Modine) who decides that he needs to do something that people will remember, which turns out to be beating the undefeated best wrestler in the entire state. The goal is a seemingly impossible one, and is even hard due to his need to drop down two weight classes to pull it off. Things also get a little complicated on this quest of his, when his parents take in a much more mature 21-year-old drifter (Linda Fiorentino), who he falls in love with.

Resident ‘Twilight’ Wolf Pup Taylor Lautner To Become ‘Max Steel’

Max Steel

A report via the LA Times was floating around the internet yesterday that Twilight and The Twilight Saga: New Moon star Taylor Lautner was being weighed as an option to star in Paramount’s superhero teenager property, Max Steel. This didn’t take long to develop into a factual story as Deadline Hollywood was able to confirm with Paramount that they had indeed cast the 17-year-old Lautner for the lead.

Max Steel originated as a CG-animated series that debuted in 2001 and went on to become an internationally popular toy line for Mattel, though it is not so well-known here in the states. And though it’s not the Transformers and G.I. Joe-level title that’s already making Paramount massive amounts of money, the studio is hoping that Lautner will rake in the majority of the planet’s female population and a strong percentage of the male population — for whatever reason might snag them. Steel tells the story of a 19-year-old X-Games-type athlete who is badly injured in an attack that sees millions of microscopic nanomachines known as Nano Tech Max infest his body and die, which in-turn eventually kills him. In order to save him, he is subjected to a heavy amount of special energy that revives the machines, saves his life, and gives him superhuman abilities.

The Big Question: To Split ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn’ In Half Or Not?

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn

As we’ve all known was a very likely possibility, it is being reported that Summit Entertainment is deciding whether or not to split The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — the final movie in the franchise (supposedly) — into two movies.

When Twilight was first peeking its head out, many said that it was going to be the next Harry Potter franchise, and to this many giggles (myself included) were had. And while the movie have been no where even close to as good as the Harry Potter films thus far, with The Twilight Saga: New Moon approaching $500 Million worldwide, you just can’t deny that it’s throwing down the same numbers.

With Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, they decided to split it in two in order to cover a lot more of the story, and of course, to make a whole new un-godly amount of money that they would never have made if they only did one film. This is also being done with The Hobbit. Naturally, it has always been a question as to whether Twilight would take the same path once they reached their final film. Now that they have established themselves as a heavy hitter, it comes as no shock that Summit Entertainment has this choice to make.

‘Twilight’ Fans Receive Much-Needed Intervention At Special ‘New Moon’ Screening

The Twilight Saga: New Moon

No, this is not news. What it is, is one of the funniest damn things seen in a long, long while.

Here’s the setup: comedian Skyler Stone came to the realization that this whole Twilight thing was getting a wee bit out of hand. He decided that it was time to act, and began planning a necessary intervention for a group of fans of the franchise, all documented via video for the website Funny or Die. Stone set up a super-duper-special premiere of the new movie The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which had a packed house in no time whatsoever. The multitudes of beaming fans were recorded expressing their indescribable joy (some on a questionable level), and before long, they were seated and ready for showtime. This is when Mr. Stone comes out and breaks the bad news before attempting to talk some sense into the crowd. Sadly, none of it seems to sink in very well, but the effort is much appreciated.
