James Bond has the catch phrase "shaken not stirred," and from the new Breaking Dawn - Part 2 trailer it looks like Renesmee Cullen (Mackenzie Foy) could end up with an oddly similar tagline: "Born not bitten."
The second trailer for the final Twilight movie has just hit the web, and it gets to the heart of the conflict. While the first trailer focused on Bella's (Kristen Stewart) experiences as a newborn vampire, this second peek at the upcoming movie deals with the impending threat of the Volturi and their displeasure at the arrival of an immortal child.
One question that remains, though, is will the resolution at the end of the movie be as peaceful as it was in the book? Looks like we'll have to wait until November to find out. Hopefully, we'll also learn why Aro (Michael Sheen) decided to start taking his fashion cues from MJ. watch the trailer >> Posted 06.20.12 by Mandy

Our first Facebook movie game, ClusterFlick, plays off that old "six degrees of separation" theory — you know, the one that has a certain Kevin at the center of the Hollywood universe. It's easy to play, but not so easy to win. The goal is to use the major cast of movies to get from Point A to Point B in the smallest number of moves.

The first clip from Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland starts off very much like a scene from the Lewis Carroll classic that inspired it. A tiny Alice (Mia Wasikowska) takes a bite of cake and starts growing up and up all too quickly. The White Rabbit, voiced by Michael Sheen, stands by, offering advice on the proper portions, which alas has come a bit too late.
Still, it does provide her with an opportunity for some initial bonding with the mercurial Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter), who apparently has a weakness for large heads. Both Alice and the Rabbit are very careful though not to mention her name, which apparently has a certain resonance in Wonderland after her earlier visit. Posted 02.20.10 by reelz
As if one new New Moon scene wasn't enough, Yahoo! has premiered a brand-new Volturi clip, complete with talking Aro, vampire action, and a very pale Edward (Robert Pattinson) getting his ass kicked.
Although this never happens in the book, Melissa Rosenberg looks to have done a great job spicing up the script, and has added more male-audience-friendly action. Aro (Michael Sheen), Marcus (Christopher Heyerdahl), and Caius (Jamie Campbell Bower) are finally seen in action, with Felix (Daniel Cudmore) and Demetri (Charlie Bewley) doing a stellar job as Volturi guards. Now, if only Bella (Kristen Stewart) didn't look so deer-in-the-headlights, we'd all be happy. Posted 10.22.09 by reelz
Michael Sheen is strapping on some big ears for his role as the White Rabbit in Tim Burton's gothic adaptation of Alice in Wonderland. To get it right, he's had go a bit down the rabbit hole himself, as he explained to Parade:
Everyone has an inner white fluffy animal, it's just a question of finding it before it's too late. The White Rabbit is such an iconic character that I didn't feel like I should break the mould too much, so I just sort of went with it. The story had a huge impact on me as a child and it's stayed with me ever since, so to be part of Tim Burton's version is just like a dream come true.
Given that it's Burton's vision, we shouldn't expect things to get too fluffy and cuddly, though. A number of the characters we've seen so far in the teasers don't seem like they have anything too fluffy inside. Certainly not Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter in any case. Posted 10.12.09 by reelz
