Last week we brought you Breaking Dawn‘s first official poster, and just a few days ago you got to see the wedding teaser. But today’s a brand new day, and even though you were originally going to have to wait until tonight’s MTV Movie Awards to see this trailer, some kind, precious soul with connections decided that you shouldn’t have to wait that long. Congratulations, Twihards. Your time is nigh.
Are you guys going to watch the MTV Movie Awards this Sunday? Well, now you are, I guess, right?
I don’t know. To me, it seems like all of the craziness and hubbub surrounding the Twilight franchise has died down a bunch, and I’m starting to honestly wonder if people even care about it anymore. Kristen Stewart is a big famous movie star now, and Robert Pattinson is like, a sex symbol or whatever and just wants to settle down now, so have they – haha wait for it – “eclipsed” the movies themselves, or are people still actually into this stuff?
Ugh, I’m not sure I’m even prepared for another Twilight movie to be released. We’ve been talking about this movie for months (hell, it seems like years) and I don’t think the trailers are even running in theaters yet. But I’m not totally selfish. I know that there are plenty of Twihards out there that absolutely can’t wait to see R.Patz and K.Stew‘s tame sex scene and melt down in the theater when it’s finally all over after all of these years. I’ll give you your moment, and apparently, so will Entertainment Weekly.
The magazine is releasing their May 6th issue with two different covers that celebrate the franchise, one with Rob and Kristen and the other with Taylor Lautner. If I had to put my money on which will sell better, my guess would be the former, but I’ve learned that it’s silly to underestimate the power of The Lautner.
Let me know which cover you plan on purchasing in the poll and, as always, the comments are here for any and all thoughts and feelings you might like to share. I’m sure you’ve got a lot of ‘em.
So Paul McDonald? Impossibly adorable. He got eliminated this week, which was a tragic moment in my household, but it’s ok, because he’s got other things to do, like work on a new album and bang Nikki Reed, the lady who plays beautiful, bitchy Rosalie in the Twilight movies. Here’s Paul’s characteristically charming statement about it:
“Yeah, well me and Nikki Reed are dating. It’s officially true. She’s super cool, man, she’s super smart, really cool girl. I’m happy about it. We’ve been hanging out, here and there, you know we’re both pretty busy, but it’s been fun so far.”
And here’s another statement where Paul describes how happy Nikki is that he got eliminated:
“She is actually pumped,” he said. “She said, ‘Dude, you finally get to do your thing and be yourself and be the artist you are.’ She is happy about the whole situation. She has been nothing but cool to me.”
I’m really excited about this couple, can you tell? It hits on two things that I’m ashamed to be so in love with, which is a really special feeling. And you guys, I’ve got to confess – I’ve been falling hard for Paul McDonald for the past couple days. I mean, he’s no Casey Abrams, but he’s wonderful. I just got his band’s album (The Grand Magnolias, check it out if you’re hipster enough), and it’s crazy good. If you don’t pull any other glee out of this story, at least check out The Grand Magnolias and let them touch your heart, ok?
It’s finally here: one of the Twilight-themed moments you’ve been waiting for all year – the big reveal of Bella Swan’s wedding dress. The rendering was released earlier this week, and I’ll be damned if that chick in the dress doesn’t look EXACTLY what you’d expect an anime Kristen Stewart to look like, but I guess that was part of the whole idea, huh?
I don’t really get the hardons over Twilight, though there are probably people out there who don’t really get the whole Star Wars thing, either, but this wedding dress of Bella’s? It’s probably the excitement-equivalent of Princess Leia’s crazy risque bikini that people are STILL all nuts over.
Gotta love those fans and their fanatical ways, right? Speak out, Twilight fans – are you loving this?
Robert Pattinson has been a part of the Twilight franchise for like, almost four years now and he admits that he still can’t put in the contact lenses he wears to play Edward Cullen. Robert recently said in an interview that he still needs the makeup artists to put in his contacts for him. He told Entertainment Weekly, “Everyone else has figured out how to do it, and then there’s two people holding me down because I can’t do it myself… It’s so embarrassing for me, after so many years, it’s still a process every single morning. I actually want to get some kind of plastic explosive… I want to kill them.”
I gotta admit that I’ve always had a similar problem with contacts (I’m practically blind, did you guys know that?) but like, suck it up dude.
Bath & Body Works was being threatened with legal action by Summit Entertainment, the people behind the Twilight movies to discontinue their scent, “Twilight Woods.” The production company claims that the retailer is trying to capitalize on their brand through unofficial merchandise. While a lesser overpriced lotion and fragrance manufacturer would buckle under the pressure, Bath & Body Works is all “Hell to the no!”
Confusion in the marketplace? Summit allegedly thinks so. Now Bath & Body Works has beat Summit to the courthouse to stake its claim in federal court in Manhattan.
“The term ‘Twilight’ is used so as to evoke the idea of a particular time of day when the sun is just below the horizon, illuminating the landscape,” the lawsuit says. “Whereas defendant uses the term ‘Twilight’ to refer to defendant’s teen vampire saga.”
I’m going to have to side with Bath & Body Works on this one, although I hope I’m never forced to smell their shitty products again. Summit doesn’t get to own words commonly used to describe a type of day, and B&BW has always used really fucking dumb names for their products. My college boyfriend’s mom was obsessed with “Moonlit Path,” which to me sounds exactly like “Twilight Woods,” except later in the day.
Calm down, Summit. You’ll get all the money you deserve and then some. Leave the tacky mall store and its gross lotions alone.
