Article and Poll: Vampires Have Become a $7 billion Industry

Check out this new article discussing the recent popularity of vampires in Hollywood and head over HERE to vote for Robert Pattinson as the Sexiest Vampire.

These days, Edward has competition from more than just Jacob.

Vampires have become a $7 billion industry, according to the Hollywood Reporter, and “Twilight” isn’t the only phenomenon sucking the dough out of your pocket. HBO has a hit with “True Blood,” and the CW’s “Vampire Diaries” has tweens and teens dreaming of undead heartthrobs.

Team “Twilight” reigns supreme, of course. Globally, the three “Twilight” films have earned an unbelievable $1.76 billion at the box office, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Even the low-budget Fox/New Regency “Twilight” parody “Vampires Suck” grossed $20 million in its first six days.

But with all of these immortals running around, which one is the sexiest? Robert Pattinson, who plays Edward in “Twilight,” is a little pale, isn’t he? Is he really a rival for Brad Pitt, who appeared in “Interview with the Vampire” in 1994? And the ladies aren’t so bad, either. From Ashley to Kate to Salma, female vampires have their fans too.
