Just because the Twilight franchise is done, doesn't mean we are done with the Twilight franchise.
Since the first Twilight movie was released in 2008, the Twilight phenomenon has swept the globe, with the franchise's final installment, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, earning $784 million in worldwide box office. Many Twilight fans have openly admitted that the movies and books have become a full-blown obsession, even an addiction, at times coming at a cost of other relationships in their lives.
So why has Twilight struck such a chord with so many? New York psychologist Dr. Niloo Dardashti believes she has the answer, but will only reveal it in her documentary Into the Twilight Haze, as detailed in the doc's press release. After all, psychologists don't offer all their advice for free. watch the trailer and a clip from the documentary >> Posted 12.26.12 by Ryan
The newest popular book-series-turned-movie, The Hunger Games, is often compared to it's predecessor, the Twilight saga; however, it just surpassed the vampire flick in early ticket sales. Twilight's third movie, Eclipse, broke first-day record sales back on May 14, 2010 but now Games has "already sold out hundreds of showtimes in advance of the film's March 23 release date," according to Fandango. enter our Hunger Games sweepstakes >> Posted 02.24.12 by reelz
We told you last week about Fathom Events hosting all three of the previous Twilight movies on the Tuesdays in November, leading up to the release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1. To get fans even more pumped about seeing the movie again on the big screen, they've put together a trailer for Twilight Tuesdays. While it's disappointing that the trailers to contain any of the "new" footage that is promised for the re-releases, it's never a bad thing to see the most memorable images from the Twilight series again.
Along with this (sort-of) new trailer, the French poster for Breaking Dawn Part 1 has also recently been released and we're still not sure why the French titles (Fascination, Tentation, Hésitation and Révélation) of Stephenie Meyer's series aren't even sort-of literal translations of the English titles. Far more upsetting though, is that the French get to watch Breaking Dawn two days before we get to see it in the US. Perhaps it's worth going on a sight-seeing/movie-watching trip to Paris the third week of November? Watch the Twilight Tuesdays Trailer Posted 10.11.11 by Mandy

Perhaps it's just a ploy to get hordes of British teenage girls to throng to Jane Eyre, but in a recent interview Michael Fassbender said that the adaptation of the Brontë classic is a lot like The Twilight Saga.
When Fassbender sat down with Handbag.com for last week's U.K. release of the Cary Funkunaga directed—Jane Eyre, he explained that the stories are similar in that "they have the same sort of structure." When the interviewer asked why ladies like brooding men and bad boys, the actor explained that both Jane Eyre and Twilight are about "a love that can never exist, women seem to go crazy for these sorts of things."
He's not the only one to see the similarities. Twilight author Stephenie Meyer also sees a connection between the Charlotte Brontë novel and her own series. Meyer's connections to classic British literature Posted 09.13.11 by Mandy
Though her father Ron Howard made his mark by playing nice guys (like Opie Taylor and Richie Cunningham), Bryce Dallas Howard is skilled at portraying some truly wicked women. The actress played the "vampire with a vendetta," Victoria, in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, and in this week's The Help, she plays a character nearly as powerful and dangerous as a vampire: Jackson, Mississippi's Junior League president Hilly Holbrook.
Who's more evil, Victoria or Hilly? Let's compare >> Posted 08.10.11 by reelz
If you haven't heard (and how could you not) the final Harry Potter is currently in theaters, and if you thought that the conclusion of the highest-grossing movie franchise in history would go out with anything less than a spectacular bang, then you're dumber than Grawp.
In his final outing in theaters, the boy wizard is taking out more than Lord Voldemort. Harry Potter has his spectacles set on a number of box office records.
Let's go through what records have already been smashed and which are in danger:
Midnight: Harry Potter has already topped Eclipse's $30M record with a staggering $43.5M. The movie played in more than 3,800 screens and Warner Brothers said nearly all of the 3-D screenings were sold out, so it looks like the decision to add another dimension to Harry Potter is already paying off.
Single Day: We won't know this until this weekend but it looks like New Moon's record of $72M is endangered. Some theaters are reportedly screening the movie around the clock today. Warner Bros. told Deadline that it's expecting Deathly Hallows to gross another $40M before the end of the day today, putting the movie at around $80M. Twihards are going to be pissed.
Widest Opening: Eclipse still holds the record for the widest opening ever. Harry Potter opened on 4,375 screens, while Eclipse opened to 4,468 screens. which records will Deathly Hallows have come Monday? >> Posted 07.15.11 by Chris
Is your biggest problem with the December holidays the fact that there aren't enough werewolf-related decorations? If so, Hallmark is going to make this Christmas very merry. Last year Hallmark offered a Bella and Edward ornament, and this year, the company's reportedly gone one better and added the ever-passionate werewolf Jacob Black to the mix. The Twilight: Eclipse-themed ornament is expected to hit stores on July 16, giving fans more than ample time to get theirs before the onslaught of the holiday season.
Which ornament is better? The one with just Bella and Edward, or the one that includes Jacob, too? Shouldn't there be a Breaking Dawn ornament for Christmas 2012? Let us know in the comments below. Posted 07.05.11 by Mandy
Voting is now open for the Teen Choice Awards, and fans can vote for Robert Pattinson in no less than four separate categories (Actor Drama, Actor Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Liplock, and Male Hottie). There are a ton of categories, 23 for movies alone, and there are apparently more summer category nominations to come. The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is nominated nine times, The Hangover Part II has nine nods, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, and Super 8 are strongly represented as well.
