It screened in theaters before The Hunger Games this weekend, so chances are good that fans already saw the new teaser for Breaking Dawn — Part 2. The torch may have been passed temporarily to a new female YA hero, but these teasing glimpses of Bella flexing her newfound capabilities will remind viewers that the Twilight saga isn’t finished yet. “After 18 years of being utterly ordinary,” Bella says, “I found out that I can finally shine.” Watch it below: READ FULL STORY

Who ever thought the words, “We’re the same temperature now” could sound so sexy? The teaser for the trailer for Breaking Dawn — Part 2 is here just days before the full trailer premieres in front of The Hunger Games this weekend. Though clocking in at only a meager ten seconds, the teaser gives us plenty to talk about: A blurred Bella speeding through the woods, a flash of Jacob (wearing a form-fitting sweater, no less) and that dazzling wedding ring. Not so surprisingly missing? A glimpse of newly-turned vampire Bella’s face in all its supernatural glory. Watch the teaser after the jump: READ FULL STORY
It is far too easy to lump the Twilight franchise and The Hunger Games trilogy in the same gooey pile of frenetic teen appeal, romance, and endless merchandising opportunities.
It’s partly because it’s rare these days for one to be mentioned without the other and because, quite frankly, they do have a lot in common — starting with the unparalleled fan devotion. Both started with popular young-adult best-sellers that revolve around a tumultuous love triangle and the threat of early death thanks to some sort of fantastic, grotesque, inconceivable circumstances. The movie adaptations are filled with hot young things whose every move and comment after casting is closely observed, reported, and debated at water coolers, in high school hallways, through social networking sites, and on an extensive web of fan blogs. The films are promoted with T-shirt lines, dolls, and mall tours. Musicians clamor to be included on what will surely be a chart-topping soundtrack that even hipsters have to admit they browse on iTunes. Heck, now both movies are even brought to you by the same studio (Hunger Games distributor Lionsgate bought Twilight home Summit earlier this year).
Having covered all four Twilight premieres for EW and having slightly worse hearing to show for it, I assumed I was in for a very similar night — loud, long, and concerned about future generations thanks to the lewd signage — when I took the Hunger Games assignment. The banal details leading up to premiere day seemed suspiciously similar: Credentials had to be requested weeks in advance, getting into an early screening was harder than killing a Career Tribute, the event would be held at Nokia Theatre (the site of the last two Twilight premieres), and the press call time was four hours earlier than Jennifer Lawrence would even contemplate stepping on the carpet.
Once I arrived, though, the atmosphere felt different. The word that immediately popped into my head: calmer. READ FULL STORY
Jack Kerouac’s On the Road became an iconic novel to a restless group of young and disenfranchised when it was published in 1957, and close to half a century passed before it became a movie. Maybe it was a mad idea to try.
Kerouac himself wanted Marlon Brando to star in a film, though that was never to happen. Much later, Francis Ford Coppola bought the rights in 1979, but struggled for years to come up with a script. Attempts to get everyone from Brad Pitt to Billy Crudup to star led only to false starts.
It may seem a strange thing, the Beat Generation mixing with the Twilight generation, but without Kristen Stewart signing on to co-star as the teenage bride Marylou, this version of the story directed by Walter Salles (The Motorcycle Diaries) may not have happened either.

As far as being a record-breaking box office champ is concerned, it looks like the odds are already in The Hunger Games‘ favor.
Advanced tickets went on sale for the hotly anticipated release and already the film is showing impressive numbers a month before it even hits theaters. On Wednesday, the day advance tickets went on sale to the eager public, Fandango reported that The Hunger Games accounted for 83 percent of the site’s totals. In fact, sales were so high, the movie has already trumped another beloved adaptation: The Twilight Saga. The Hunger Games toppled Eclipse for Fandango’s top first-day advanced ticket seller, previously set on May 14, 2010.
