The sequel you never knew you wanted is here.
How does one raise the bar after releasing a 2010 ensemble comedy that earned $271 million in worldwide box office? Bring almost everyone back and add Taylor Lautner to widen the potential audience.
So goes the formula for Grown Ups 2, the sequel that will see Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, David Spade and Kevin James (sorry, Rob Schneider fans, "scheduling issues" kept him out of the sequel) return once again to the small town they grew up in and remind everyone that they still haven't grown up yet. The added "twist" this time around is that the sequel takes place on the last day of school. But the movie's first trailer proves that little has changed for the sequel, which includes Sandler getting peed on by a deer and the main cast all getting naked and launching themselves off a cliff into a lake. watch the trailer >> Posted 04.04.13 by Ryan
He's gone from a cute, skinny kid to a major Hollywood heartthrob since his first interview with Reelz, but Taylor Lautner swears that, although he's done some growing up, he's still the same guy he was before all the Team Jacob mania began.
Twilight excitement is reaching a fever pitch with Breaking Dawn - Part 2 arriving in theaters this week, and Reelz has a special lined up to celebrate the big event premiering Wednesday, November 14th at 11am ET/ 8am PT. From one-on-one cast interviews to a look back at the entire saga to red-hot red-carpet footage, the ReelzChannel Breaking Dawn Part 2 Special hosted by Elizabeth Reaser — Esme Cullen, herself — is a must-watch for every Twilight fan.go team twilight!

Not to be overshadowed by the summer's blockbusters — well, that and the fact that tomorrow is Edward Cullen's 111th birthday — Summit is getting a second Breaking Dawn - Part 2 trailer queued up to dominate the web.
While the full trailer doesn't release until tomorrow morning (and, yes, we'll post it when it drops), we have a 15-second preview of it today. We got a look at vampire Bella (Kristin Stewart) stalking a deer in the woods in the first teaser trailer for the final installment of the Twilight Saga. This time the focus shifts to Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy) and the Volturi's anger at her existence. Watch the preview of teaser trailer #2 >> Posted 06.19.12 by reelz
It's been a few weeks since anything new from the last chapter of the Twilight Saga was released, but today there are three new character posters out for Breaking Dawn - Part 2. Since there are three of them, it's no surprise that Bella (Kristen Stewart), Edward (Robert Pattinson), and Jacob (Taylor Lautner) are the characters represented.
In the posters, Bella is looking decidedly un-human with red eyes, granite skin, and striking vampire beauty. She's also wearing what is surely a very chic leather jacket that coordinates nicely with the wool coat that Edward is wearing in his poster. Jacob is, of course, just wearing a t-shirt, but being a werewolf he wouldn't need or want a coat. The only other elements on the posters are the November 16 release date and the word "Forever." Simple but effective. See the posters >> Posted 05.24.12 by Mandy

The studio where Tyler Perry's movies are shot caught fire last night. A three-alarm blaze broke out around 9 PM on Tuesday at the Atlanta complex, which houses five soundstages, a backlot, and Perry's offices. Luckily, firefighters were able to bring the flames under control after about an hour and no injuries were reported.
Earlier this week, British boy band The Wanted called Christina Aguilera names, and now they're going after Britney Spears. During a different radio interview, the boys claimed that they weren't allowed to even look at the pop star when they opened for her. The group complained that they were told to turn and face the wall as she passed by, though one member backtracked and said that she was "so down-to-earth" when they met her. Since the interview, a rep for Spears released a statement saying, "What's even more interesting than the false allegations they made is the fact that they have claimed to be picked on by two female pop stars in just a few days. Look out Lady Gaga — there are still three days left this week."
Twilight heartthrob Taylor Lautner has been spotted out and about with a new lady, but it's not another starlet. Instead, he seems to be rekindling a romance with his high school sweetheart Sara Hicks, who is now a cheerleader for the LA Clippers.
"Elegant" and "sophisticated" may not describe a typical one-year-old's birthday party, but then Mariah Carey probably isn't a typical mom. She and husband Nick Cannon apparently went all out for Monroe and Moroccan's first birthday, celebrating in Paris with custom-made pastries and formal attire. No backyard party with a kiddie pool and cake for those kids.
It looks like Ashton Kutcher is in for a second season of Two and a Half Men, and will reportedly be earning $700k per episode. Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones will be returning for the tenth season, as well. Posted 05.02.12 by Mandy
Happy Thursday, twi-hards! It's still a long wait until the final installment of the Twilight series is in theaters, but here's a little something to brighten up the day of any Team Jacob or Team Edward members out there. Two new photos from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 have just been released, and while they may not be action packed and they don't give away much about the movie, they still manage to give fans what they want.
One features a gorgeous, red-eyed vampire version of Bella (Kristen Stewart) standing with her Edward (Robert Pattinson). The other pic simply features Jacob (Taylor Lautner) in a black T-shirt with a bit of a five o'clock shadow creeping up on him. He's certainly wearing that extra bit of facial hair very well.

With The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 bringing an end to the franchise this November, Taylor Lautner is looking for what to do next with his career. He's already tried being an action star with Abduction, but that didn't turn out too well, as bad reviews didn't convince Twilight fans to help make the movie a hit. Next up, Lautner will try comedy, and for that, he will turn to an assured, award-winning comedic hand: Adam Sandler. OK, so those "awards" were actually Razzies, with Sandler recently winning both Worst Actor and Worst Actress for his dual role in Jack and Jill (which set a record by sweeping every category at the Golden Raspberry Awards). Still, by definition, Sandler did "win" those awards — even beating Lautner, who was nominated for Worst Actor for his role in Abduction.
We guess if you can't beat 'em at winning a fake award that celebrates the worst in movies, join 'em. Lautner will appear in Grown Ups 2, the sequel to the 2010 ensemble comedy that saw Sandler team with several of his Saturday Night Live alums and quickly became one of the actor's highest grossing movies ever at $271 million worldwide. Say what you will about Sandler, but he does find a way to deliver (at least, at the box office), and who can blame Lautner for wanting to hang out with Chris Rock, David Spade, and the rest of the cast after doing nothing but Twilight-related ab work for so many years?
According to THR, Lautner's role is a "fun" one that will see the actor go "toe-to-toe" with Sandler. Sounds like a glorified cameo, but we'll find out when Grown Ups 2 opens on July 12, 2013. Posted 04.05.12 by Ryan
The entire first trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 won't be released until March 23, when it will debut before screenings of The Hunger Games, but a 15-second sneak peek is available right now.
Unsurprisingly, there still isn't a good look at Bella (Kristen Stewart) as a vampire (that last shot from Part 1 will have to suffice for now) but members of both Team Edward and Team Jacob should be happy. The mini taste of the teaser does give us some Robert Pattinson and some Taylor Lautner. Though Lautner has not exactly been revered by critics for his acting chops, it's remarkable how the actor is able to really reveal the significant emotional change Jacob has gone through with only about two seconds of footage. Check out the brand-new, angst-free Jacob Black. Edward Cullen is, of course, as sweet and lovely as ever. Watch the teaser's teaser >> Posted 03.20.12 by Mandy
The worlds of Twilight and The Hunger Games are about to collide.
The LA Times reports that the trailer for the fifth and final Twilight movie, Breaking Dawn – Part 2, will debut before The Hunger Games when it hits theaters March 23.
The move makes sense now that Lionsgate owns Summit, the studio behind Twilight. As the Times article points out, while anticipation is high for The Hunger Games, it doesn't have the proven built-in fanbase that Twilight has. Will the Twi-hards who made Twilight a multi-billion dollar franchise show up to watch Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) try to survive the Hunger Games? Lionsgate is definitely banking on it. watch the new trailer for The Hunger Games Posted 02.10.12 by Chris
The long-in-development live-action Stretch Armstrong movie adaptation is being repackaged yet again. With actors as diverse as Tim Allen and Jackie Chan attached to various incarnations of the project, it seemed like the movie might finally get the green light from Universal after Twilight star Taylor Lautner signed on to headline the movie back in 2010. However, according to THR, Stretch Armstrong has left Universal for Relativity Media, with director Rob Letterman remaining on solely as an executive producer and Lautner no longer attached as the stretchy superhero. more about the Stretch Armstrong adaptation >> Posted 01.31.12 by BrentJS
