The release of New Moon on DVD has been announced for March 20th.
Accompanying the film is a six-part behind-the-scenes documentary, rehearsal footage from Muse, music videos from Death Cab For Cutie, Anya Marina, and Mute Math, and commentary from Chris Weitz (director), and Peter Lambert (editor).
George Clooney is holding a telethon Jan. 22 to raise disaster relief funds for those affected by the recent earthquake in Haiti, reports E! News. Sources say organizers are planning to ask Twilightstars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner to participate.
“She’d jump at the chance to do something to help,” said a source close to Stewart. However, the star is scheduled to be traveling to the Sundance Film Festival to promote Welcome to the Rileys and The Runaways during the telethon.
Several Burger King restaurants are reporting life-size promotional posters of Twilightstars Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are being stolen, reports TMZ. Locations in Maine, Delaware and Montana have been affected by the crimes.
“The girls just walk up in the middle of the day, rip off the posters, and run,” said a Burger King representative. “We’ve had to replace them over and over.”
It’s no great surprise that the Pope isn’t a major endorser of the Twlight series.
Conveniently timed to the release of the “New Moon” sequel to Twilight, the Vatican culture council leader, Monsignor Franco Perazzolo, issued a statement about the underlying evil in the series. According to E! online, he said “this film is nothing more than a moral vacuum with a deviant message and as such should be of concern”
His next comment further solidifies his position on the vampire and werewolf packed flick. “This theme of vampires in Twilight combines a mixture of excesses that, as ever, is aimed at young people and gives a heavy esoteric element.”
Looks like the vampire-craze is here to stay.
The Twilight Saga: New Moon was released today (November 20), much to the enjoyment of avid Twilighters everywhere. According to ew.com, the flick set a new record for opening midnight shows, and it grossed around $26.3 million. Move aside, Harry Potter (who earned $2.2 million in the summer).
The story follows Edward and Bella, as well as incorporating the new wolf-gang that up-and-comer Taylor Lautner is a big part of. For those who have read the book, and followed the series, they already know about the consequences of a love triangle with a vampire and a werewolf. If not, Kristen Stewart’s (who plays Bella) anguish will be made clear through the Chris Weitz’s-directed film.
OK everybody, the Twilight saga continues with New Moon (ladies please control your crying). We were lucky to sit down with Canadian heartthrob Bronson Pelletier for an interview during the recent press stop in Toronto. Bronson plays Jared in the movie and apparently had to get jacked up to play his werewolf character. He also spoke with us about his relationships with his fellow Twilight actors.
It’s official! According to the superficial.com, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have had some sort of romance. The news comes from the original Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke. In a recent interview with Time Magazine she spilled the beans stating, “I didn’t have a camera in the hotel room. I cannot say, but in terms of what Kristen told me directly, it didn’t happen on the first movie.” I think we can all read between the lines as to what “it” means. However, I can’t really say I’m shocked. Seriously? Is this news? Two really good looking people can only be stuck together for so long and eventually they’re going to find their way into bed together.
Although, there was a considerable age difference between the two on the first movie. At four years apart, Twilight’s boy wonder was dangerously close to earning the nickname Robert Polansky. The director even cautioned the young superstar, “After I cast him, I told Rob, Don’t even think about having a romance with her,” Hardwicke says. “She’s under 18. You will be arrested.” Well, I guess Edward really would do anything for Bella. Even if it means spending some time in the slammer, once again Twilight is showing us all that love has no boundaries.
On the red carpet for the 61st Annual Emmy Awards, E! News kicked off a campaign to get Twilight‘s Robert Pattinson a hosting gig on Saturday Night Live.
“We would love to get Robert Pattinson,” said Seth Meyers. “How dare you tell me he’s the hot guy from Twilight, like I don’t already know! We’re actually hoping if he’s not available, at least his hair will come by and host.”
“Oh yeah, he’d be great,” said Kristen Wiig.
The now-infamous cast of Eclipse, the Twilight sequel have been spotted throughout Vancouver where the third installment of the series is currently filming. It will be a prime time for some snooping too, as rumours have been flying about romances between a number of duos on the set.
Lead actors Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson arrived just days ago, Stewart still clad with a mullet from her title role in the Joan Jett biopic Runaways. They were sited a few nights ago getting cozy at a Kings of Leon concert in Vancouver Aug. 15, with photos of them practically making out appearing on RadarOnline.com and Just Jared. This comes after the two attended Comic-Con, an international and now celebrity hot spot comic book convention in San Diego, where they were practically joined at the hip according to the Los Angeles Times.
Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner get their own chocolate bar in the shape of their “Twilight” characters Edward Cullen, Bella Swan and Jacob Black respectively.
Necco sub-brand SkyBar is releasing these “New Moon” bars as well as special boxes of “Twilight” Sweethearts. But of course, they had to add a vampire twist to the flavours which include “Secret Strawberry,” “Passion Fruit” and “Tempting Apple.”
Jason Mesnick and Jillian Harris — reality stars of ABC’s “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” — may have to move aside because “Gossip Girl’s” Chase Crawford is “the hottest bachelor” according to People magazine.
After all, the 23-year-old actor has had quite a busy year. Crawford starred in one of the most buzzed-about TV shows, garnered a role that allows him to share the screen with Kiefer Sutherland and has recently been cast as the lead in the highly anticipated “footloose” remake.
But don’t be fooled by his success, Crawford’s ideal date involves a simple beer and pool table. “All you need is a pool table, beer, an electric jukebox and good conversation,” he told People magazine. “The day a girl beats me in a game of Beirut [a kind of beer pong] is a good sign!”
“Star Trek’s” Chris Pine and “Transformers” star Shia Labeouf have also made the cut. This year’s list also includes “American Idol” runner-up Adam Lambert and “90210’s” Ryan Eggold. From “Twilight,” both Robert Pattinson and Kellan Lutz are listed among the 45 bachelors.
“Twilight’s” Robert Pattinson has been cast in a new movie, an adaptation of Guy de Maupassant’s short story “Bel Ami,” as reported by Variety.
The actor revealed the news while in Cannes to promote his next flick “Remember Me.” He also told Variety, to the excitement of female fans, that the female lead hasn’t been cast yet for “Remember Me.” “The girl needs to be literally inspirational,” he says. “I have no qualms saying that she’s a genius.”
“Twilight” fans beware: this is not your typical R-Pattz. He’s crazy, he’s odd and I like it.
“Little Ashes” takes place in 1920’s Spain (pre-Spanish Civil War) and focuses on the real-life friendship of eccentric artist Salvador Dalí (played by Robert Pattinson), famed poet and revolutionary Federico García Lorca (Javier Beltrán), and renowned Spanish filmmaker Luis Buñuel (Matthew McNulty). But most importantly, “Little Ashes” tells the untold love story of Dalí and García Lorca.
Most of the movie takes place at the university attended by the three Spanish artists. One of the very first scenes shows Pattinson as Dalí arriving at school dressed in God knows what and a bob cut, which I’m sure will shock many of you because it defiantly shocked the characters in the movie.
Then again, Madrid was at a turning point in the 1920’s as was most of the world. It’s no wonder why that decade was nicknamed the “roaring twenties.” Jazz was a new thing, Freud was sharing his controversial ideas and experimental art was beginning to explode. In a way, Dalí, García Lorca and Buñuel represent these changes in “Little Ashes,” just like they did in real life.
“Little Ashes” is the indie movie that’s getting a lot of attention and andPop caught up with one of its stars, Matthew McNulty, to talk about the movie, his role and Robert Pattinson.
The film takes place in 1920’s Spain (pre-Spanish Civil War) and focuses on the real-life friendship of eccentric artist Salvador Dalí (played by Robert Pattinson), famed poet and revolutionary Federico García Lorca (Javier Beltrán), and renowned Spanish filmmaker Luis Buñuel. But most importantly, “Little Ashes” tells the untold love story of Dalí and García Lorca.
In the movie, McNulty plays Buñuel and he says co-starring in this production was almost a no brainer. “The fact that it’s Luis Buñuel first and foremost and I think when an opportunity like that comes along, I think it’s stupid to turn it away,” he says.
Young love isn’t going to get any easier for “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson – at least, not in his next movie.
The 22-year-old actor has been cast in Summit Entertainment’s “Remember Me,” a romantic drama about a young couple who must overcome a succession of family tragedies that complicate their relationship.
Not much else is known about the plot, but Summit co-chairman and CEO Patrick Wachsberger has described the film as this generation’s “Love Story,” reports ScreenDaily.com. “Love Story,” of course, is the classic 1970 romance starring Ali MacGraw and Ryan O’Neal that featured the famous line “Love means never having to say you’re sorry.”
Christina Applegate graces the cover of this year’s “People’s Most Beautiful” issue, but many teen idols are featured in the magazine as well.
“Twilight’s” Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have both made People’s annual 100 Most Beautiful List. “I don’t get it. It’s funny, you look the same for years, and no one ever mentions it. Then suddenly it’s a big deal,” Pattinson tells People.
Other young stars such as “Gossip Girl’s” Taylor Momsen, brothers Nick and Joe Jonas and “17 Again” star Zac Efron have also made the list.
Efron revealed to People his secret to staying fit. “Backpacking, hiking, surfing, swimming, playing tennis — things that get you active and are also fun.”
Good news for Robert Pattinson fans: he’s coming to a television set near you. He will not be reappearing as the famous “Twilight” vampire, but as Art, a struggling singer/songwriter trying to get over a breakup in the indie comedy, “How to Be.” According to mtvnews.com, exclusive reports state that IFC Festival Direct will be showing the film on demand beginning April 29.
It appears that 22-year-old Pattinson has a musical streak as well. He performs three original songs on the soundtrack, which will be released on CD and as a digital download through iTunes and other online retailers on April 28.
Robert Pattinson is up for the lead role in Summit Entertainment’s latest romantic drama “Memoirs,” according to MTV News.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Memoirs” tells the story of two lovers and their threatened relationship caused by family tragedies. Their love is put to the test by their struggle to cope with these tragedies.
The original script was penned by Will Fetters, but it is currently being rewritten by “Rachel Getting Married” screenwriter Jenny Lumet, according to MTV News.
Rumours have been flying everywhere that Disney stars like Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Miley Cyrus and “Twilight” actor Robert Pattinson will make appearances during the Academy Awards on Sunday February 22.
“High School Musical” star Zac Efron and his girlfriend and “High School Musical” co-star Vanessa Hudgens are rumoured to be presenting the award for Best Original Song according to E! Online.
On Monday, rumours started about “Twilight’s” Robert Pattinson and if he would present an award. However, there has been no confirmation of this, or if co-star Kristen Stewart will present the award with Pattinson.
Last year, “Hannah Montana” star Miley Cyrus made an appearance at the Academy Awards, and although there has been no confirmation if Cyrus is scheduled to take the stage, it has been reported by E! Online that she will be at the Oscars in support of the animated flick “Bolt,” which is nominated under the Animated Feature category.
Summit Entertainment has announced their vampire-hit “Twilight” will be available for fans on March 21, featuring a two-disc DVD set. Although this may sound like just another movie on DVD, the makers of “Twilight” have decided to change things up.
The vampire-romance will be ready to be picked off the shelves by midnight, and on a Saturday, as opposed to the usual Tuesday release for DVDs.
The DVD version will come with many bonus features, including audio commentary by Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart as well as Catherine Hardwicke who directed the flick, a documentary of the making-of process, music videos from Linkin Park, Muse and Paramore and of course, deleted scenes.
A few months ago in November, the highly anticipated vampire-flick made its debut with a $35 million opening day, followed by a $70.6 million opening weekend. There’s no doubt these vampires will have fans running.
