Bill Condon helming 'Twilight: Breaking Dawn'

COPY AND PASTE



Writer/director Bill Condon -- who co-produced last year's Academy Awards -- has inked a deal to direct the fourth film in the "Twilight" franchise. There is talk that "Breaking Dawn" will be split into two films, as is being done with the last in the "Harry Potter" series. Condon -- who won an Oscar for his script for "Gods & Monsters" -- said in a statement, "I’m very excited to get the chance to bring the climax of this saga to life on-screen. As fans of the series know, this is a one-of-a-kind book and we’re hoping to create an equally unique cinematic experience."

Daniel Cudmore talks about Rob and the Felix and Edward Fight

COPIED AND PASTE

Daniel Cudmore, who plays evil Volturi vampire Felix, and Booboo Stewart, who plays young werewolf Seth Clearwater, are among the stars of the Twilight Saga movies in Sydney and Melbourne for the Australian Twilight Convention.

At 6-feet-7 (1.83 metres), muscle-bound Canadian actor Cudmore isn't hard to miss.

But out enjoying his first trip to Australia he's yet to be spotted by Twihards.

"I've just walked around the whole city," Cudmore told AAP in Sydney.

"For some reason people don't associate me with some of the roles I've played.

"I think a lot of people in the city looked at me wondering what sport I play."

Cudmore did start out as a football player in Canada, before getting into stunt work and acting.

The fantasy films have plenty of fans, but Cudmore says it's nothing compared to the reaction to the Twilight series.

"It's more intense, there's so much more passion," he said.

"I think maybe because it's a newer phenomenon, whereas X-Men has been around for such a long time through the comic books and the movies."

Cudmore's character Felix is a Volturi thug whose day-to-day job is "tearing apart other vampires".

He says Felix is a nasty piece of work, but a joy to play.

"He's an angry vampire, he doesn't really get much respect, and he's been around for thousands of years ... and he's just really, really good at what he does," Cudmore said.

"It's a fun character - it's fun to play someone dark, who goes on the animal side and enjoys it."

The physical role included a fight scene with Robert Pattinson, who plays Edward.

Pattinson is a heartthrob to Twilight fans the world over, but Cudmore said the handsome actor was keen to do as much of his own stunt work as possible.

"Rob's a great guy, he's really game for anything," Cudmore said.

"He was nervous at first, because he was like, `you know I'm not the most athletic guy out there, I don't think I'm going to be able to do this'.

"After rehearsing for a few hours he was really, really having a good time with it. He had a blast."

HitFix: ‘Eclipse’ is the Third Biggest Movie This Summer

I KNOW ITS NUMBER ONE MOVIE FOR ME THIS SUMMER!

COPIED AND PASTE



3. The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

Opening Day: June 30

Pros: Arguably the most passionate franchise fanbase of this era and the most action packed of all the films which means guys might not have to be dragged by their significant others after being bored through “New Moon.” “Eclipse” is also the first installment in IMAX (higher ticket prices factor in) and to be released in the teen-friendly summer season.
Cons: The “backlash” is over, but are the fans still as excited as they were for the first two films?

Projected Box Office: $330 million
Lowdown: $300 million is guaranteed, but it “should” do much more than that

The “Twilight” cast gives back

JUST WHEN U THINK ROB COULDNT BE MORE PERFECT HE GETS INVOLVED WITH THIS!

COPIED AND PASTE

HollywoodNews.com: The “Twilight” cast is a well-known (and large!) group of actors. But in their “off” time, many of them use their celebrity to support charitable causes and help the greater good. Below are some of the actors and the charitable causes they support. If you know of any other charities these actors support, please leave a note in the comments and I will add it to the already large list!

Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Anna Kendrick, Taylor Lautner Hope for Haiti

As you may have seen, Robert Pattison took time out from filming in London to speak to a world-wide audience during George Clooney’s “Hope for Haiti” telethon on January 22nd.

Kristen Stewart, unable to participate in the telethon due to her participation in Sundance, later scheduled a dinner at La Vida with proceeds going to the same organization.

Anna Kendrick and Taylor Lautner appeared on the “Hope for Haiti” telethon, answering phone calls to take donations for the event.

Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner: Attended a “New Moon” benefit screening in Knoxville, TN, where the nearly $400,000 raised went to charities such as East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, Second Harvest, Boy Scouts of the Smokies, Imagination Library, and the American Heart Association.

Robert Pattinson: Aside from Hope for Haiti, Robert Pattinson has also raised money for amfAR cinema against AIDS by auctioning off his kisses! He also signed a guitar which went up for auction and all proceeds went to The Midnight Mission. Finally, Rob has donated some of his film costumes to be auctioned off, with all proceeds benefiting Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF)

Most recently, Rob and “Water for Elephants” announced that based on Rob’s March 2010 statement that his charity of choice is the World Wildlife Federation (WWF), WaterForElephantsFilm.com will be supporting Robert Pattinson’s philanthropy by spreading the word via their website and encouraging readers to donate to WWF.

Kristen Stewart: In addition to Hope for Haiti, Kristen Stewart participated in a Diabetes Walk event in late 2009. She also participated in Sam Bradley’s “Gewa” charity concert which raised money for people in Tibet. Kristen recently signed speakers, with proceeds benefiting Clothes off Our Backs. There’s still 14 days left on this auction, so place your bids now!

Peter Facinelli: PFach, as his fans call him, is one of the most active “Twilight” actors in the charity community. He is an avid supporter of Alex’s Lemonade Stand, benefiting childhood cancer research. Peter also supports the Christopher Reeve Foundation, which benefits research on spinal cord injury and paralysis. Finally, Peter Facinelli plays Vampire Baseball, which served the American Red Cross and Hope for Haiti in 2010. For more information on Vampire Baseball, see below.

Ashley Greene: Donate My Dress

This organization aims to “encourage girls to donate their prom and special occasion dresses to others who need them.”

Jeans for Teens: Ashley participated in this organization which helped obtain jeans for teens who can’t afford them.

Christian Serratos: PETA

The title of this organization is pretty self explanatory – People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Christian recently posed for PETA posters (nudity warning) where she bared nearly all in opposition to wearing fur and also helped the campaign against seal slaughter.

Kellan Lutz: Kellan also participates with PETA and the One Campaign which attempts to organize Americans to fight AIDS and global poverty. Kellan also worked with Ashley Greene on the Jeans for Teens campaign.

Jackson Rathbone: The Spencer Bell Legacy Project

This organization features a video directed by Jackson (his debut) and attempts to raise money for adrenal cancer.

Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed, Jackson Rathbone: Bono’s “One” campaign. The “One” campaign fights against extreme poverty and global disease.

Peter Facinelli, Chaske Spencer, Tyson Houseman, Alex Meraz: Vampire Baseball

Proceeds from this year’s Vampire Baseball went to the American Red Cross and Hope for Haiti Now, as well as to local organizations such as the 9th Ward Field of Dreams and the Blood Center.

Anna Kendrick: Feeding America

Anna Kendrick decorated a cute Easter egg this past April, with proceed benefiting Feeding America.

Rachelle Lefevre: For every 10,000 Twitter followers she gets (@rachellelefevre), Rachelle donates $100 to breast cancer research. Additionally, Rachelle sometimes posts items to her charity auction on Ebay.

Billy Burke: While Billy attended the Artists for Haiti benefit, he is also known for keeping a poker face while he plays at the tables for charity events.

Booboo Stewart: The Los Angeles Mission

Booboo has been spotted generously feeding the homeless for the Los Angeles Mission during his downtime and has stated how much he loves helping the organization.

The Final Eclipse Trailer: A Scene-by-Scene Review

OKAY SO THIS IS A SPOILER RECAP ON THE TRIALER I ONLY POSTED ON OF EDWARD AND THE ENDING I DONT LIKE POSTING SPOILERS SO GO TO THE LINK FOR THE ENITER RECAP AT OWN RISK!

COPIED AND PASTE

After debuting on the Oprah show with a Skype intro from Dakota Fanning, the second and final trailer for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is now available on the show's website. Additionally, it will be making its way online to Summit's Facebook and MySpace pages tonight, in advance of the 8:15 PM ET live video chat at both with Bryce Dallas Howard, Nikki Reed, and Julia Jones.

We're happy to see that the trailer includes lots of new scenes from the upcoming movie. Read on for our detailed scene-by-scene analysis of the year's most anticipated trailer. And if you want to watch the trailer (again), click here.

Cut to Edward looking less than impressed before Jacob replies to Bella, "I'm here to warn you." Warn her about what? The fact that Victoria's on the rampage? That werewolves are dangerous? Or that she has really bad hair? We're guessing it's the latter; after all, if Jacob's looking his best, Bella has to, right?


We're at the end, and back to the official Twilight Saga: Eclipse logo. Was that enough to satisfy your thirst? It's the best saga trailer so far, and showcases some awesome effects and action scenes. Roll on June 30th!
