Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson top Forbes' list of highest-grossing onscreen couples

When it comes to love stories, the folks at Forbes have come to a shocking conclusion: Vampires rule.

Forbes has released a list of Hollywood’s Highest-Grossing Romantic Couples (onscreen), and the results include the usual suspects. Far and away the most popular romantic movie of the last three years (the length of time Forbes measured) was the Twilight franchise, making Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson the top-earning pairing.The duo’s offscreen relationship — and the ensuing media frenzy — probably didn’t hurt things. In addition, Twilight had an advantage of having more than one film open over the past three years, but even if the grosses weren’t combined, they would have won the award. As it is, the Twilight movies have brought in over 1.17 billion dollars the last three years, trouncing all other competitors.

In the battle for the rest, Channing Tatum was great news for romantic films. The Vow, co-starring Rachel McAdams, was enough for that duo to earn second place with 125 million; Tatum also got on the list at number six for Dear John with Amanda Seyfried. Other top earners included Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler ($103 million for Just Go With It) as well as real-life couple Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth in The Last Song ($63 million).

Best of 2012: Kisses by 'Twilight' -- VIDEO

With The Twilight Saga officially over (for now), we reminisce with the five films’ best kisses.

From quick pecks on the cheek, to heavy snogging, and even an unwanted kiss or two, there’s a reason why Twilight has won “Best Kiss” at the MTV Movie Awards four years in a row. Watch the video below or catch it on YouTube.

A newbie and a superfan discuss 'Breaking Dawn -- Part 2.' Will the romance work on a Twi-virgin?

ADAM B. VARY: Last year, I guided my colleague Dan Snierson through his very first experience with a wizard named Harry Potter — Dan had neither read J.K. Rowling’s books nor seen any of the movies, and we both wanted to see what would happen when a Potter newbie watched the final Potter movie. He had fun, I had fun, and I daresay at least four or five readers of our subsequent conversation about the experience had fun too.

And now it would seem the wand is in the other hand, or the the promise ring is on the other finger, or something. Because as I write these words, the final feature film in The Twilight Saga is nigh upon us, but this time, I’m the one who has never read any of Stephenie Meyer’s books nor seen any of the feature films. As I gear up to become the pop-culture guinea pig and see Breaking Dawn — Part 2 with only the second-hand knowledge I’ve absorbed walking the halls of EW, you, Denise Warner, have bravely agreed to escort me through all the vampiric romance and Taylor Lautner shirtlessness. I mean, there will be shirtlessness, right?

DENISE WARNER: You know, I can’t promise shirtlessness. READ FULL STORY

Robert Pattinson totally over 'Twilight' -- VIDEO proof

Twilight haters, you’ve got yourself an ally: Robert Pattinson himself.

The Twilight actor has never exactly raved about the movies to begin with. But that’s what makes this Buzzfeed video of Pattinson — answering questions with a goofy-yet-barely-concealed rage against the franchise — so entertaining.

The video compiles all his best soundbites over the years attempting to explain the things even fans struggle to defend: “If Edward wasn’t a fictional character, he’d be one of those guys who’s an ax-murderer,”he says. “There’s definitely something wrong with [Bella], and there’s obviously something wrong with me.” On his standard look in the film: “It’s a mixture of looking slightly constipated and stoned.”

Now, I’ll say that in all of these clips Pattinson appears to be joking, somewhat (same deal for the Tumblr RobertPattinsonHatesTwilight). Except for the soundbite when he says that the most rewarding part of Twilight was getting SK-II face packs (face cream). I have no excuse for that.

'Twilight' is a marathon, not a sprint

When I volunteered to watch a five-movie Twilight Saga marathon, I’ll admit I didn’t fully anticipate the challenges and doubts I’d encounter along the way. As the weeks, then days, then hours ticked down, I realized I’d need to get my head in the game. I trained like any marathoner would, honing skills appropriate to the course — subsisting on a diet of carbohydrates, carbonated drinks, and stale air; sitting on my rear for long periods of time, and abandoning all thoughts of age-appropriate content or cinematic quality. Also like any marathoner, I blacked out for long periods of time between the start and finish lines. But! Here’s what I do remember… READ FULL STORY

'Twilight: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2': On-the-scene fan reactions

If you’re at the midnight premiere of Twilight: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 (well, technically, a 10 p.m. Thursday night show) chances are you’re already more than familiar about what exactly goes down in the finale of the vampire saga. With my colleagues Lanford Beard (who was coming off an all-day Twilight marathon) and Denise Warner, we braved the first public showtime in Manhattan alongside a – no surprise – sold-out crowd. More surprising was how adult and costume-free our group seemed to be.

While our theater clearly was audibly buzzing with anticipation, the dirty little secret is that in the book, not a whole heck of a lot happens in the second half of Breaking Dawn. There’s a Volturi battle, and an arm-wrestling match (What big muscles you have, Emmett!), but there’s also a ton of contemplative stares and thoughts on Jacob’s relationship with Renesmee. So you can forgive fans for being a little skeptical, albeit excited, when I asked them for their thoughts prior to the final film release. READ FULL STORY
