'Mirror Mirror' poll: Best part of the movie (if you had to pick one)? -- SPOILERS!

Mirror Mirror — the Julia Roberts-Lily Collins-Armie Hammer Snow White story that is nowhere as charming as Ella Enchanted even if it, too, ends with a production number — opened to an estimated $19 million at the box office over the weekend. The movie earned a B+ CinemaScore grade from audiences, which, having seen the film myself, I can only attribute to the audience being largely made up of kids under 12 (37 percent), who’d enjoy anything, and their parents (23 percent), who finally perked up at the end when SPOILER ALERT! Game of Thrones‘ Sean Bean made a cameo as Snow White’s father. It turns out the King (Bean) hadn’t died years earlier. He’d been turned into a beast by Julia Roberts’ evil Queen. At the end of the movie, while the beast is attacking Snow White on the Queen’s command, Snow White cuts off the magic necklace around its neck and it changes back into its human form. (Sean Bean lives! Yay! But he has to hang around for that musical number over the credits? Boo!)

If you saw Mirror, Mirror, what was the best part of it for you? Vote in our poll below. And if you agree that a B+ grade is a little high (EW’s Lisa Schwarzbaum gave the film a C+), what was your issue with the film? For me, it wasn’t that the movie was awesomely bad, which would have been fun in its own way. It was just consistently flat. READ FULL STORY

Pat Robertson turns attention to 'Twilight,' calls the franchise 'demonic' -- VIDEO

He’s baaaaaaack. After haranguing Saturday Night Live for their Tim Tebow lampoon, Pat Robertson has joined the anti-Twilight bandwagon. The 81-year-old aspiring hipster and fundamentalist minister deemed Stephenie Meyer’s sparklevamp franchise “evil” in a recent segment on his TV show, the 700 Club.

Responding a a viewer question about whether the series promotes witchcraft, Robertson recounted a story of demon possession told to him by a friend. According to Robertson, the demon in question “had permission” to possess a young girl because she had been enticed by the timeless love story of Edward Cullen and Bella Swan. “It opened the door to demonic power. Yes, I think those vampire movies are evil,” said Robertson. “There are no vampires. The whole thing is demonic.” See more of Robertson’s thoughts on Twilight below. READ FULL STORY

Kristen Stewart and Anne Hathaway are Hollywood's 'Best Actors for the Buck'

According to a study by Forbes calculating return-on-investment numbers (don’t fall asleep!) for the 40 highest-paid actors, Twilight star Kristen Stewart is Hollywood’s Best Actor for the Buck. Every time Kristen Stewart gets a dollar, her films get an average $55.83, an angel gets its wings, and a random theatergoer gets a seizure.

Look at her in that picture. Is she pissed off, or merely awake? I can never tell. (Actually, the longer I stare, the more I think this could be the most jazzed I’ve seen her.)

Also in the Top 5: Vampire Robert Pattinson, Alice in Wonderland‘s Anne Hathaway, Transformers‘ Shia LaBeouf, and Harry Potter‘s Daniel Radcliffe. This is what happens when you star in movies that make tons of cash and also movies that are low-budge. Hooray! Now they can all demand more money.

The full list of bucking broncos is here.

Is it just me or does this study have sort of a “Look at all these suckers!” vibe to it? Poor rich people. Related: I’m so glad I thought better of my original headline for this post, “Kristen Stewart is cheap and easy.” That’s not nice.

Fake Kristen Stewart explains the true spirit of Christmas

Remember how after seeing Breaking Dawn — Part I for the fourth time during its opening weekend, you turned to your BFF and said that Bella’s baby is just like Jesus?

No? Well, doesn’t really matter. This video from Barely Political is still funny. Actress Laura McDonald is a convincing Kristen Stewart/Bella, with exaggerated imitations of the actress’s affectations. “One thing [eye flutter] I know about… [swallow] women who are pregnant is [hair touch] they’re like they rub their stomachs constantly,” says the fake K-Stew. “I know that because that’s how I played Bella. Like, you just rub your stomach and then you give this freaked-out look, like… [silent gasp].”

Watch this misinformational video about the true story of Christmas, with the three wise pilgrims, the angel-pimp, and the miracle of St. Nick. READ FULL STORY

Michelle Trachtenberg claims she nearly played Bella: Can you envision 'Twilight' without Kristen Stewart?

Buffy‘s kid sister as Bella? That’s what Michelle Trachtenberg claimed nearly happened. The Gossip Girl star formerly known as Dawn Summers says she was up for the role of Bella Swan in Twilight. “There was definitely interest here and there because there’s only so few pale girls in Hollywood,” she quipped. See how Trachtenberg came about the near-miss — and imagine Twilight without Kristen Stewart — after the jump. READ FULL STORY

Bella's 'Breaking Dawn' wedding dress and Pippa's bridesmaids dress go on sale, just in time for your Royal vampire wedding.

You know, if you think about it, the Kim Kardashian wedding and the Breaking Dawn wedding really aren’t all that different. They were both over-hyped spectacles with wildly inappropriate partnerships in which the groom could technically be considered dead and at some point a werewolf showed up. (Just kidding, Jacob shows up to the reception in human form!) Of course, Bella and Edward’s married life (seen here, looking downright elated to be on their honeymoon together) lasted just a little bit longer than Kim and Kris Humphries’ (eternity > 72 days), and brides still want to wear Mrs. Cullen’s dress. (Sorry Kim, no one wants to take their chances on a cursed dress. Also, it was cuckoo.)

Lucky for them, designer Carolina Herrera, who made the elegant, understated dress worn by Kristen Stewart in Breaking Dawn — Part 1, will be selling the gowns at her CHNY boutiques starting next year, according to Reuters. While there’s no price set for the detailed lace and satin original, for those who simply cannot wait to marry their vampire husbands, Alfredo Angelo has made a replica that’s going for $799.

'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part I': A hater's guide

twilight-eclipse-hater

The last couple of weeks have been worrying ones for someone who has been tasked with writing a “Hater’s Guide” to each Twilight movie but who remains open to the possibility that one day the vampire franchise might actually produce a decent film. After all, if an infinite number of monkeys given an infinite amount of time can write the works of Shakespeare, then it would surely take just one chimpanzee a few weeks to write a film better than, say, 2008’s thunderingly dull series opener Twilight or 2009’s  The Twilight Saga: New Moon which, to the best of my recollection, consists entirely of Kristen Stewart’s heroine Bella looking out the window and watching the seasons change. In real time. READ FULL STORY

'Breaking Dawn' midnight screening: Blood, sweat, and tears (and, of course, a movie)

Some said they arrived at 5 p.m., a full seven hours before they could hand over their ticket — purchased two weeks ago — to get into last night’s sold-out midnight screening of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1. Or the sold-out 12:06 a.m. screening…or the sold-out 12:11 a.m. screening…or the sold-out 12:16 a.m. screening. The United Artists Kaufman Astoria theater in New York City, like so many other theaters around the country, attempted to accommodate Twi-hard demand with a multitude of options slotted well past midnight. (A tip of the hat to any movie theater employee that works on nights like these. It cannot be easy.)

As a newbie to the Twilight midnight showing experience (and oh, is it an experience), I arrived at 10:30 p.m. It was pretty obvious I had zero chance at getting a good seat — the lobby and theater area (pictured) were packed to the brim with (mostly) girls in their late teens and early 20s (though I spotted a few reluctant boyfriends here and there), all out far past reasonable bedtimes and curfews.

This Week's Cover: The 'Breaking Dawn' stars talk blood, sex, and that vampire baby -- EXCLUSIVE

Twihards have long been anticipating seeing Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) honeymoon on Isle Esme and consummate their marriage amid flying feathers. And as audiences will see when The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1 arrives in theaters this Friday, the love scene does not disappoint. But, according to the stars of the movie, things could have been even more steamy — if it weren’t for director Bill Condon needing to keep the action PG-13. “There’s a version where it was really intense,” recalls Pattinson in this week’s EW.  “Cinematically, cut all together, it’s awesome,” says Kristen Stewart. “But we didn’t really do that scene. ”

“And when we did,” adds Pattinson, “they kept telling us to stop.”  READ FULL STORY
