From a human-vampire hybrid to a pair of precocious love birds, these kids stole the show in some of this year’s biggest flicks. The peewee actors mirrored their strong-willed characters’ strengths, stirring Oscar buzz for several of their roles in 2012.

Movie Talk with Owen & Lisa: Final 'Breaking Dawn' 'feels like it might as well be the 15th 'Twilight' movie'
Entertainment Weeklycritics Owen Gleiberman and Lisa Schwarzbaum discuss The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2, heading into its second week of likely box office dominance.
“This movie feels like it might as well be the fifteenth Twilight movie,” Owen says. ”What I do think works is that they tap into a certain teen-pop, schlock, other worldly, sexually incorrect, neo-Victorian rapture that I think is very appealing.”
“The thing that I liked about this concluding episode, besides the fact that it is the concluding episode, is that apparently, vampiredom has finally made [Bella] dress better,” Lisa says. Watch their whole discussion below!
Twilight is the gift that keeps on giving — for fans of paranormal teen novels, at least. Those who flood theaters to see Breaking Dawn — Part 2 will be treated to new trailers for two upcoming films based on beloved supernatural YA series: The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones and Beautiful Creatures. The latter follows 15-year-old Lena Duchannes (Alice Englert), a witch — sorry, “caster” — who is fated to become either good or evil on her 16th birthday. That destiny takes a back seat when Lena meets Ethan Wate (Alden Ehrenreich) — a dreamy normal kid determined to save his new love from her possibly dark future.
This new trailer reveals much more of the movie’s southern gothic plot, which was kept pretty opaque in the teaser released in September. It also introduces the rest of the film’s cast: an imposing stable of actors who look like they’re either taking this material fairly seriously (Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis) or having great fun with it (Emma Thompson, Emmy Rossum). Watch Lena and Ethan’s love story bloom as Thompson chews the scenery below:
If you’re worried that the impending release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 means that there won’t be any more movies about lovesick teenagers with superpowers and glowing eyes, then the trailer for The Host should be a breath of fresh air. On the other hand, if you don’t care about Twilight or melancholy teenagers with massive feelings, you may still be intrigued by The Host, which was adapted from Stephenie Meyer’s novel for the screen by Andrew Niccol, a legitimate sci-fi filmmaker best known for Gattaca and his screenplay for The Truman Show. Then again, maybe you should just get excited that we’re probably all finally going to learn how to pronounce “Saoirse Ronan” when this gets released in March. READ FULL STORY »
'Breaking Dawn -- Part 2' premiere: Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson on 'Twilight's last gleaming
It has to be one of Hollywood history’s most densely compressed blockbuster phenomenons. Just four years after the original Twilight seduced movie audiences and made overnight global superstars of its actors, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner were walking the Nokia Theatre’s red carpet for the premiere of the final chapter of the saga, Breaking Dawn — Part 2, trying to articulate what the moment and the last four years have meant to them. “I feel like we graduated when we finished shooting,” said Stewart, who trailed behind Pattinson on the red carpet before joining him for photographs. “This is like the after-party. It’s nice. This time especially, it is so completely surreal. I’m just trying to absorb it and be here. It’s what we’re gonna miss. It’s that excitement. You don’t ever get to share movies on such a vast [scope]. I mean, like, I have something in common with every single one of these people here, which doesn’t happen [often], so it’s pretty cool.” READ FULL STORY »
On the scene at 'Breaking Dawn' tent city: Fans camp out for the premiere of the final 'Twilight' movie
Cindy Childers got to make a cross-country trip to the premiere of the final Twilight movie on the condition that she check in with her family back home in Orlando, Fla., each day – but this isn’t a young teenage fan. In a bit of role-reversal, Childers, 47, promised to call her adult children every day she’s in Los Angeles camping out in anticipation of Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2’s world premiere.
“My daughter’s 24 and calls me everyday. ‘Are you OK?’ ‘Yes, I’m fine!’” Childers told EW, as she stood next to her tent covered in posters bearing the face of Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson.

Twihards, the moment has finally arrived.
After four previous films, one vampire baby, and hundreds of press interviews full of are they/aren’t they tension for the stars, the final Twilight red carpet is here – and EW is bringing you a front row seat, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies.
Come back to this page tonight starting at 7:30 p.m. ET for a live stream of all the Twilight: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 proceedings. What will Kristen Stewart be wearing? Will Taylor Lautner do a character homage and be shirtless? (Doubtful.) Will Mackenzie Foy and Taylor Lautner pose for pictures together (and what about Pattinson and Stewart)? Anyone’s guess!
Hopefully the stars might spill some secrets about the film, which officially opens on Friday. Stewart has already talked up a “twist ending,” and Pattinson has shared the secrets of his loud kissing that are apparently on display in the movie. What more vampire revelations are still to come?

The Twilight saga ends with the release of Breaking Dawn — Part 2 this Friday, but that doesn’t mean Summit Entertainment is getting out of the paranormal teen romance game. Like Twilight, their upcoming film Warm Bodies is adapted from a YA novel about a supernatural boy who falls for a normal human girl. The twist: The pair lives in a postapocalyptic wasteland, and oh yeah, he happens to be a zombie. Here’s an exclusive look at the movie’s new one-sheet:
In mere weeks, the premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 will rain down romance, blood, and of course screaming, lusty fans. For now, we have a new peek — and a feisty one at that. Witness this line: “Jake, you really do stink!” Those are the words of a ruby-eyed, paler-than-usual Bella (Kristen Stewart) during her first meet-up with Jacob (Taylor Lautner) after she becomes a vampire. As for this particular clip, unveiled by MTV Thursday, there’s a nuanced moment of understanding between Jacob and his longtime rival-turned-Bella’s husband Edward (Robert Pattinson). Watch for it now.
Twilight fans are having a pretty great week. First, EW brought you an exclusive clip of Bella and Edward from their new cottage, and now, Green Day has released a music video for their song, “The Forgotten,” featured on the Breaking Dawn — Part 2 soundtrack.
The video is full of goodies from the film, including an extended look at red-eyed vampire Bella jumping over a waterfall and running, running, running through the forest with Edward. So much to do, so little time before the Volturi show up! There’s also a fair amount of Renesmee, including some shots of the whole new vampire family around the piano, and — most excitedly for fans — even a tease of big moments like when Bella gives Renesmee the locket.
