No contest at all it has to be Harry Potter. Twilight should not even be mentioned alongside Potter! They do of course have one person in common and that’s Robert Pattinson who has appeared in both franchises. Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and Edward Cullen in the Twilight saga.
This is such a tough one as quite a lot of films out there which I didn’t particularly like but to have to have a least favorite film is difficult to choose. I have gone for Twilight as it was so disappointing after reading the book. It makes no sense whatsoever if you were not a fan of the book.
Well as usually I cannot come out of HMV with just one DVD . . . Obviously with Remember Me being released the Twilight films were not far away. I don’t even have Twilight on DVD I still have a friends copy, but when I saw the Jacob and Edward different covers on the New Moon DVDs I just had to buy the Jacob one. As I have always and will always be Team Jacob!!!
I have been sent this article and exclusive pictures of Kristen Stewart! Enjoy!!!
Out of Focus: KRISTEN STEWART
The actress stars in a shocking new rock biopic, carving out a niche of respect after years of teenybopper fare.

Being an actor and being attractive at the same time and in some cases being labelled a “pretty boy” can place a lot of extra pressure on the actor. After so long if they are not already showing brilliant acting roles they hit a point when their good looks no longer cut it in the world of film. This could be related to that if they are a young actor their “fan girls” grow up and they are still trying to do the same type of roles, this loses some of their fan base and its either show you can act or the work will dry up and you will slowly be forgotten about. But if they can act and show they can act what a career they will have!
The first part of the very popular Vampire novel’s made it to the big screen. With a lot of attention and fandom before it had even been filmed this was always going to be a hit. But how would those who have not read the books see the films?
Well my “New Moon” challenge did not last very long at all. I have to admit that it is because as with “Twilight” when I read that last year, these books the way they are written some how consume me. I cannot really completely explain why exactly but it just happens and I really do not want to put them down. So I have two more to read being “Eclipse” and “Breaking Dawn” which I am sure will be done in the next couple of weeks.
Last night I eventually decided to continue reading “New Moon” my new found push being that the “New Moon” movie comes out next week. Of course it will not be difficult to read the book in a week. I mean since last night I have read 180 pages . . . so I could possibly be finished it over the weekend. I knew it would eventually consume me like Twilight did, were you totally do not want to put it down! I read Twilight in such quick time. I did originally start reading this straight after Twilight but got distracted with something else . . . I cannot even remember what. But I am back on track now and have Eclipse and Breaking Dawn waiting to be read as soon as I have finished New Moon.
So Far I have to admit that I am not Edward’s friend for leaving. He has totally broke my heart . . . Bare in mind that I had already read this part before. Yet reading it last night it really hurt and struck me, I suppose I do have my reasons. I cannot really stop reading it . . .
So the challenge will continue . . .
I have watched a few movies recently and thought that the actor in it has a fantastic career ahead of them so decided to make a top 10 list of those actors. With a few reasons why I think they will keep progressing and go on to do great things (potentially), from the movies I have seen them in. I decided to define the young actor, as an actor under the age of 30.
I just love hearing things about the Twilight cast
Twilight star Peter Facinelli loves working on the vampire franchise – because the musical cast regularly get together for sing-a-long sessions.
The 35-year-old, who plays Robert Pattinson’s dad in the original film and in upcoming sequel New Moon, is a big fan of his onscreen son’s musical talents and admits the British star often picks up his guitar and plays for the other actors.
Facinelli tells the New York Daily News, “I love to hear Rob sing. He’s got an insanely good voice. Sometimes we all get together and he gets on the guitar and starts playing and singing. He writes his own material.”
And Pattinson, who recorded two songs for the Twilight soundtrack, isn’t the only one who has been keeping the cast entertained – his co-star Kristen Stewart has been learning music for her upcoming role as rocker Joan Jett.
Facinelli adds, “Kristen has taken up the guitar for the movie she’s doing. Everyone’s been carrying a guitar around.”
Last night was the MTV Movie Awards, so here’s some pictures from the night.
Again no suprise at all here. All of the Twilight fans must have been out in force on the voting front over the past few weeks. Dont get me wrong while I have been posting these as I love Twilight. I loved the book more than the movie, but it was still good. I just think when you compare to the other nominations, such as “The Dark Knight” and even “Iron Man”. I bet HSM3 was second to Twilight.
But anyway I do enjoy these awards as it gives other movies and actors a chance to realise that they were found entertaining. When the Oscar noms and winners may not have brought in as many people to watch the movies.
I will definatly be posting some pictures tomorrow . . .
Yep very predictable . . . another for Twilight.
Especially in a strong cateogry . . . I mean come on Kate won her Oscar for “The Reader”. But never mind eh ?
Yep another award for Twilight. This time to both Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. I bet it was quite a close one to call with Zac and Vanessa being nominated for HSM3.
I thought the kiss between James and Angelina for Wanted was very hot !!! But what about Sean Penn and James Franco, in “Milk” that was brilliant !!!
I am going to predict that this is the start of the Twilight sweep of awards.
Looking at the other nominations, I would have gone for the fight between Batman and the Joker in “The Dark Knight”. Dont get me wrong I love Twilight and a bit of Edward Cullen aka Robert Pattinson but BATMAN !!!
I bet someone will not be very happy about this !!!
A humble beauty salon owner will mingle with stars at the New Moon premiere – after she discovered the film’s script in a trash can and handed it in to studio bosses.
Casey Ray from St. Louis, Missouri found the discarded screenplay, along with another script for a venture entitled Memoirs in a bin while waiting for her boyfriend to finish work.
And rather than leak the film’s plot to fans of the Twilight series, Ray has been praised by the film’s studio Summit Entertainment for her honesty after she came forward with the scripts.
A representative for the studio says, “We thank Ms. Ray for doing the right thing.”
And bosses are so thankful for the return of the script, they have invited Ray to both films’ premieres.
Ray’s lawyer states that although she considered holding on to the New Moon screenplay as a collector’s item, “she didn’t really want to get paid” for the script.
It is not known how the scripts ended up in the bin, although actress Anna Kendrick, who stars in the vampire franchise, was recently filming in a hotel near where the items were found.
However, Kendrick’s rep insists the star wouldn’t leave her scripts in a public trash can.
Very interesting nominations, but good that younger stars and not normally award movies get to be nominated.
Vampire blockbuster Twilight and Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire will lead the charge at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards after scooping seven and six nominations, respectively.
The bloodsucking love story, based on the book by Stephenie Meyer, will compete for prizes including Best Movie, Best Female Performance for Kristen Stewart, and Breakthrough Performance Male for both Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.
Slumdog Millionaire stars Freida Pinto and Dev Patel are also up for the Breakthrough Performance accolades, while the film will go up against Twilight, The Dark Knight, Iron Man and High School Musical 3: Senior Year in the Best Movie category.
Meanwhile, Anne Hathaway (Bride Wars), Angelina Jolie (Wanted) and Kate Winslet (The Reader) join Stewart in the Best Female Performance line-up, and Zac Efron (High School Musical 3), Shia Labeouf (Eagle Eye) and Robert Downey, Jr. (Tropic Thunder) will fight it out for the Best Male Performance title.
Miley Cyrus (Hannah Montana: The Movie) and Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical 3) will go head-to-head for the Breakthrough Performance Female award, while Cyrus is also nominated for Best Song From a Movie for Hannah Montana.
Real-life Slumdog Millionaire lovebirds Patel and Pinto have also earned recognition in the Best Kiss category, alongside Twilight’s Pattinson and Stewart, James Franco and Sean Penn for Milk, and Paul Rudd and Thomas Lennon in I Love You, Man.
The Dark Knight’s Christian Bale and the late Heath Ledger will battle it out for Best Fight alongside Seth Rogen, James Franco and Danny McBride for their scrap in Pineapple Express.
The Golden Popcorn prizes, nominated and voted for by MTV viewers, will be handed out in Los Angeles on 31 May.
I bet he is so glad that he stuck with the acting now !!!
Robert Pattinson nearly gave up on his acting ambitions before landing the lead as a vampire in Twilight – because he couldn’t snag the roles he dreamed of playing.
Pattinson first shot to fame playing wizard Cedric Diggory in 2005′s Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire – but he began to plot a career as a musician when he failed to secure any more inspiring movie work.
And it wasn’t until he landed the part of an awkward musician in filmmaker Oliver Irving‘s independent movie How To Be that his love for acting was reignited.
Irving tells People.com, “He was thinking about giving up acting and maybe doing music solely when this role (in How To Be) came along. He wanted to play the roles he wasn’t getting… He was looking for something more challenging.”
And the director made sure to push Pattinson during filming, asking him to play the guitar and harmonica while disguising his good looks with a strange haircut and ill-fitting clothing.
Irving adds: “I said, ‘You’re banned from cutting your hair between now and the shoot.’ We had to give him the most awkward haircut we possibly could, and we cut his trouser length a little bit too high. Things like that played down his apparent good looks.”
And Irving insists Pattinson rose to the challenge, often showing off musical skills too advanced for his character: “He downplayed how good he was. A lot of the time he would turn out to have a really good (instrument) technique and we told him he needed to play it more simply.”
I would just love this !!!
Heartthrob Robert Pattinson is facing some serious competition – movie bosses are eyeing pin-up Channing Tatum for a lead role in the vampire franchise’s third outing Eclipse.
Pattinson has become one of Hollywood’s hottest young stars since he landed the role of bloodsucker Edward Cullen in Twilight.
But it could be time for the young Brit to stand in the sidelines – screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg is desperate to sign former model Tatum as nasty vampire Riley.
She tells E! Online, “There’s a very big battle at the end with Riley, and I think Channing would do that so well.
“And there are some complexities to that character. He really is tragic. He’s a puppet for Victoria (vampire character). So he has to break your heart a little bit at the end when he realises that she doesn’t want him. Channing could do that beautifully.”
They are bound to be linked just because they work together on the Twilight series.
Robert Pattinson is completely baffled by the continued gossip linking him to his Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart – branding the romance rumours “ridiculous”.
The pair, who play on-screen lovers Edward Bullen and Bella Swan in the cult vampire franchise, has been dogged by reports they are enjoying a secret love affair.
But Pattinson insists the situation has got out of control – especially when he sees their ‘romance’ is front page news.
He tells Entertainment Tonight, “It becomes a joke. There was some magazine the other day about me and Kristen, and when you look at it and realise it’s on the front of a magazine… You realise that people are actually reading that even though how ridiculous it is. It’s really bizarre.”
Third installment is on the go already YAY !!!
The cast of the Twilight franchise are in for a scary ride when filming starts on the vampire series’ third outing Eclipse – horror moviemaker David Slade has been signed to the project.
Speculation over the director of the third bloodsucking movie has been rife over recent months, with Drew Barrymore and Juan Antonia Bayona both being linked to the coveted position.
Catherine Hardwicke broke records with her take on Twilight, while Chris Weitz is currently in charge of the forthcoming sequel New Moon.
But bosses at film studio Summit and author of the books from which the films are adapted, Stephenie Meyer, have given the green light for the third picture, Eclipse, to take a more sinister twist – by hiring scare master Slade.
The director is famous for his dark films, including Hard Candy in 2005, and has already worked with the vampire genre – directing 2007′s critically acclaimed 30 Days Of Night.
And Meyer is adamant Slade is the right guy for the job: “I am thrilled that David Slade will be directing Eclipse. He’s a visionary filmmaker who has so much to offer this franchise.
“From the beginning, we’ve been blessed with wonderful directorial talent for the Twilight Saga, and I’m so happy that Eclipse will be carrying on with that tradition.”
YAY, all that news yesterday saying it wasnt going to happen !!!
Twilight fans can breathe a sigh of relief after studio executives confirmed the upcoming sequel New Moon will not be affected by an ongoing lawsuit against author Stephenie Meyer.
The writer, who penned the books on which the films are based, is facing legal action from her former college roommate, who alleges Meyer based the novels on a short story she wrote as a student.
The lawsuit was reported to have had severe implications for the film franchise – which stars Robert Pattinson – with internet gossips speculating that the shooting of New Moon in Canada had been halted.
But a spokesperson from Summit Entertainment, the company behind the movie, insists New Moon remains on schedule for a 20 November release.
The rep tells MSNBC.com, “Production is underway, in Vancouver, totally as planned. There is no delay. Whatever you’re hearing about a lawsuit interfering with the film (and) its release, all I can say is it’s totally false.”
