In an oddly animated interview with MTV News, Kristen Stewart talked about the final installment of the Twilight series with something approaching enthusiasm. Having just returned from Breaking Dawn read-throughs in Baton Rouge with Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, Stewart reported that “it’s done, it’s locked… basically we know exactly how the book is going to find itself, and now we know all the lines and know what scenes have been pulled.” No word yet on whether the birthing scene of baby vampire chewing her cutesie-schmoopsie way out of Bella’s womb has been tweaked or cut.

Cast members from The Vampire Diaries joined executive producers Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec at New York Comic Con on Sunday and, naturally, a big chunk of their hour-long Q&A session focused on the show’s romantic webs that may just get a little more tangled by the end of season 2.
Right off the bat, Katerina Graham was asked whether her character, Bonnie, will find a love interest. “Everyone wants Bonnie to get some! There is a chance,” Graham told the cheering crowd. Plec immediately jumped into the conversation and offered this tease: “Bonnie is going to be getting interest from somebody that she already knows, and she will meet someone new who strikes her fancy.” This is big news! PopWatchers, who do you think is the character that we already know that develops — or acts on — an interest in Bonnie? Personally, I’d love to see a Damon/Bonnie romance go down on the show, and I’m curious to hear what you all think. (Remember, as Katherine told Stefan in the season premiere, hating someone sounds like the beginning of a love story, not the end of one.) Later in the panel discussion, Plec joked about Damon’s sex figure status and said, “I think by the time the series is over, Damon will have slept with every man, woman, and child.” I choose to believe that means that a Damon/Bonnie hookup is likely at some point in the series (hopefully sooner rather than later).

'Let Me In': Chloe Moretz on playing a vampire; Matt Reeves talks 'Let the Right One In' comparison, and how 'Twilight' saved his film
It’s easy to fall for 2008 Swedish vampire film Let the Right One In, the dark and delicate tale of a lonely 12-year-old boy who connects with an equally haunted young girl. Except she may not really be that young…or even exactly human. Sure, the movie is filed under horror, but its darkness is rooted in a tender coming-of-age story, directed by Tomas Alfredson from John Ajvide Lindqvist’s novel. I’ve seen Let the Right One In six times, own two DVD versions (since the subtitles were so royally screwed-up the first time), and I’ve even sampled footage of main characters Eli and Oskar in this little video series I produce called Idolatry. I guess you could say I’m a fan. So, like many devotees, I had an Eli-is-hungry-now-get-out-of-the-way meltdown when the Hollywood remake was announced. I envisioned older actors. I pictured an overload of sentiment, or an overload of gratuitous action and “thrills,” or just plain overload. In short, I could only imagine that the unique spirit of the original (and the novel) would be more or less ripped to shreds by a crazed horde of demonic execs and then burned in a hospital bed, all in the name of reaching a broader audience that simply cannot be bothered to read subtitles. Skräcken! [The horror!] READ FULL STORY
Kate Beckinsale will play vampire Selene once more in a fourth Underworld movie, it’s been announced. The film, still looking for a director and an actress to play Selene’s daughter, will begin shooting in March in Vancouver for a January 2012 release. Few details are known about the script from John Hlavin (The Shield), which is being revised by J. Michael Straczynsk (The Changeling), but I’m all for Beckinsale’s return to Selene’s latex catsuit, which she’s donned twice before (the third film in the franchise, Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, was a prequel starring Rhona Mitra). It took her to the round of 16 in our summer Sexy Beast bracket game, and who knows what would have happened if she hadn’t met Twilight‘s Edward Cullen. The luck of the draw…
Do you agree that bringing sexy back is a good idea for Beckinsale? (Yes, her last film was with Robert De Niro, but EW gave that movie, Everybody’s Fine, a D. Every project is a roll of the dice.)
The official trailer for Priest, the adaptation of a graphic novel about an exiled warrior (Paul Bettany) who defies church orders to pretend there’s not a new vampire problem, has been released. Bettany gets some help from Nikita‘s Maggie Q and Twilight‘s Cam Gigandet. I’ve been trying to think of something interesting to say, but since I don’t want to take a shot at Bettany for reuniting with his Legion director or express my concern for Stephen Moyer’s character, nothing is coming to me. The trailer is uninspiring in that it looks acceptable. Average. There’s solid action, but nothing mind-blowing. Scares, but no tricks we haven’t seen before. Watch it below and take a stab.
