Is 2012 going to be the Year of the Dude Movie?

According to the results of a poll just released by Fandango, the most anticipated blockbuster for women in 2012 is The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn; Part 2. I would imagine that the first instinct of many moviegoers, upon hearing that information, is a forehead-slap followed by a long groan. But when you look at the list of big movies next year, it’s hard to blame the female population for returning to the glowy-skinned arms of the Twilight franchise. The Hollywood blockbuster season is always male-dominated, but it’s striking just how many dude-centric movies dominate the schedule next year. 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 a rising baby name, to no one's surprise

BabyCenter has released its annual lists of the Top 100 baby names of the year for girls and boys. Check them out here, and marvel at how unique the most popular names actually sound to someone who remembers when Jennifer was No. 1. Twilight moms appear to be losing their love of Isabella, which has now dropped to No. 3, below Sophia and Emma. (Isabella was No. 2 last year, and No. 1 in 2009.) But the good news, the more casual Bella is definitely on the rise: It was No. 67 in 2009, No. 49 in 2010, and No. 26 in 2011.

On the boys’ side, Jacob is at No. 5, while Edward is nowhere on the list. The wolf wins at something! Aiden remains the No. 1 boys’ name, for the seventh year in a row.

Occupy UC Davis pepper-spray officer takes the 'net by storm -- and, yes, there's a 'Twilight' reference

Leave it to the Internet to boil everyday scandals down to a catchy meme! Enthusiastic Photoshoppers have taken a photo of UC Davis campus police lieutenant John Pike pepper spraying Occupy UC Davis protestors this past Friday and injected the unfriendly officer into great works of art from the Sistine Chapel to Georges Seurat’s “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte” — not to mention mocking up a Twilight riff and finding a way to shout out to Denver Broncos’ QB Tim Tebow.  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
