Only about 250 stars have been honored with an imprint ceremony at the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, a tradition that began with Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks in 1927. On Nov. 3 at 10 a.m. PT, Twilight stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner will get their chance to put their hands and feet in cement. If you’re looking for another reason to say the Harry Potter franchise is better than Twilight, you’ll be happy to know Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint had that pleasure in 2007. But what we’re more interested in: Whose imprints did you photograph on your first trip to Los Angeles? Don’t even try to pretend you didn’t take your camera out for someone. I went through old photos recently and was surprised to find snapshots of Gene Kelly’s and Sylvester Stallone’s. Your turn.

To increase buzz for the Nov. 18 release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part I (because you know there really isn’t enough), Summit Entertainment has partnered with NCM Fathom to bring the first three films in the Twilight Saga back into theaters for one-night engagements called “Twilight Saga Tuesdays.” You can revisit Twilight on Nov. 1, The Twilight Saga: New Moon on Nov. 8, and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse on Nov. 15. You’ll find a link to participating theaters here. All shows will begin at 7:30 p.m. local time. Also promised: “Exclusive introductions from the cast members, compelling interviews with the stars answering the questions that Twilight Saga aficionados have always wanted answered and amazing clips from the many fan fests over the years.”
My question: Which of these movies would you actually pay to see again in theaters? Poll! READ FULL STORY »
Fright Night (1985) vs. Fright Night (2011): Why the update's far more old-fashioned than the classic
Real men do not read Twilight.
That’s what high school kid Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin) tells his nerdy, vampire-obsessed friend Evil Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) in the 2011 update of the campy horror classic Fright Night. What he’s really saying is clear: this is not going to be one of those romantic vampire movies where some pale, skinny guy messes around with a pretty young promise-ring type but refrains from sticking it in her (his tooth, that is).
And Charley’s right. The vampire in this movie (a bloodlicker named Jerry, played by real-life nighthawk Colin Farrell) is not a moral guy. Living on the outskirts of Las Vegas, he’s a stripper-torturing, teenage-girl-perverting, Real Housewives of New Jersey-watching fang-banger who preys on single moms and brags to the cops that he’s making the local women scream every night. (Read EW’s excellent defense of Jerry’s horrible, disgusting mercilessness here.)
So what’s that bad boy doing in such a conservative movie? After the jump, we’ll discuss why this sexier, bloodier update is actually far more old-fashioned than the 1985 original. WARNING: There are tons of major spoilers below. Plus, “Edward Cullen” and “chastity belt” are used very close together. Read at your own risk.
In this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly, the stars of November’s The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1 discuss how they approached key scenes in the film, from the tense walk down the aisle to the pillow-shredding honeymoon, to the bloody, ghastly climax. But you don’t have to be a Twihard to enjoy EW’s Fall Movie Preview, which dishes on the biggest and best films opening before the end of the year. Some highlights:
• The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’s stars talk about adapting the massive bestseller to the screen, and Rooney Mara, who plays Lisbeth Salander, discusses the risqué, topless ad for the film that recently caused a stir.
• Brad Pitt reveals the particular challenges of turning Michael Lewis’ 2003 book Moneyball into a movie. “Listen, we’re dealing with economics, we’re dealing with [statistics-driven] sabermetrics, we’re dealing with things that are not necessarily dramatic cinematically and palatable for an audience. Even Michael Lewis said to us, ‘Sure, I’ll sell you the rights. I don’t know how you’re going to make a movie out of it…’” READ FULL STORY »
In Field of Dreams, the eight damned Chicago White Sox who were suspended from baseball for gambling on the 1919 World Series were resurrected in Kevin Costner’s Iowa cornfield. Now, with the NFL work stoppage, FunnyOrDie has discovered that Taylor Lautner is also hearing voices. “Are you ready? … For some football?” Take a look what happens when out-of-work players have too little to do. Maybe there is a silver lining to this labor strife after all. READ FULL STORY »
