'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

'Twilight' Memories: A total 'Eclipse' of the heart

With The Twilight Saga coming to an end, we’re reliving our favorite memories from the first four films. Eclipse is up!

How many times I saw it in theaters: 0

I couldn’t bring myself to watch Bella slobber all over Jacob on a big screen. I saw it for the first time when it came out on demand, and I fast-forwarded through all the Jacob parts.

How many times I’ve seen it since: 1

This time, I forced myself to watch the entire movie.


Kristen Stewart discusses sex scenes on 'Conan' -- VIDEO

If you think Kristen Stewart seems uncomfortable during interviews, just imagine how awkwardly she must have felt while filming “aggressive” sex scenes for Breaking Dawn — Part 2.

Stewart discussed her on-screen discomfort on Conan last night, confessing that vampire lovemaking isn’t all glitter and sunshine. Her character Bella may finally be “on top,” but Stewart said the director’s technique of shooting a close-up of her “schmexy faces” during those sex scenes made her want to shoot herself. What’s that, a pun from Stewart? She really is a new woman!

'Twilight' memories: 'New Moon' rising

How many times I saw it in theaters: 2

Surprisingly, a dude I liked wanted to go — so we went the first Sunday it was out.  I saw it the next week with a few girlfriends and one unfortunate guy who happened to be staying with me.

How many times I’ve seen it since: 1

My obsession from the first film wore off by this time. But after re-watching it recently, I realized I liked it better than I remembered.


'Twilight' memories: The saga begins

With The Twilight Saga coming to an end, let’s relive our favorite memories from the first four films. I’ll start with mine from Twilight.

How many times I saw it in theaters: 4

Once on opening day with friends, then again by myself two days later. The next Wednesday, I told my then-boyfriend I had to work late so he wouldn’t make fun of me and went to see it in secret. Finally, my friend from my first showing wanted to see it one more time. And I happily went with her.

There’s plenty of entertainment to go around this week, but let’s all agree that this is Twilight’s moment to sparkle. The saga of a girl, a vampire, and a lovesick wolf finally comes to an end — beware the shocking twist ending! — after selling more than 116 million books and grossing more than $1.8 billion at the box office.

'Breaking Dawg'? The 'Twilight' parody you've been waiting for is here -- VIDEO

If you’ve been watching The Twilight Saga all these years and thinking, “This would be so much better if the characters were portrayed by dogs,” then today’s your lucky day!

Kristen Stewart talks about her 'Breaking Dawn' Chucky baby on 'Jimmy Fallon' -- VIDEO

Kristen Stewart — sporting a retro Brigitte Bardot look — stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night as part of her seemingly never-ending Breaking Dawn: Part 2 promotional tour. The usually stiff actress seemed at ease with Fallon (as opposed to her awkward chat with Jay Leno last week) while cracking jokes about baby Renesmee, Bella and Edward’s daughter in the film.

To capture the rapid growth of half-vampire-half-human Renesmee, director Bill Condon used a CGI baby in the film that Stewart likened to Chucky. “It’s got a lot of hair and sticky fingers,”  she said. Anytime Condon brought in an actual baby to play the role, Stewart said the cast was overjoyed. “Occasionally we did have a real baby and it was so clear. It was like reflected in everyone’s faces. The entire room would light up and then they would be like, okay let’s just try the digital one, let’s try the Chucky doll.” Can you say electronic baby drama?

Google goes gothic in new Doodle: Happy Birthday, Bram Stoker


With just eight days to go until Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, Google is trying to help you focus on another vampire – a cooler and scarier and not even a little bit involved-in-an-inane-love-triangle one – in the form of its latest homepage Doodle.

In honor of Bram Stoker’s 165th birthday, the creator of Dracula (published in 1897)  is commemorated with a spooky – although sadly sound-free – homepage tribute. The doodle features the bloodsucker himself, as well as terrified villagers. I especially enjoy the sketch I’m dubbing “Steve Newlin” holding garlic leaves and a wooden stake. When you click anywhere on the picture, you’re taken to the search results for “Bram Stoker books,” with images of all of his works on a carousel at the top of the page.
