Anne Rice Announces Return To The Vampire World In PRINCE LESTAT « Nerdist

By Eric Diaz Stand back, all you other bloodsuckers, the Vampire Lestat is back. Before Twilight, before True Blood, before The Vampire Diaries or Underworld or even Buffy the Vampire Slayer, author Anne Rice changed the way we think about vampires with her legendary series of novels collectively known as The Vampire Chronicles, starting in 1976 with the publication of Interview with the Vampire all the way through to 2003′s Blood Canticle, which at the time Rice swore would be the last []

Twilight Parody Producers Sue Studios For $500 Million

By: Sean O’Connell And here I thought the Twilight Saga films ALREADY were a parody . Even if that’s the case, a separate parody film called Twiharder was scheduled to reach theaters last year when Lionsgate and Summit had Breaking Dawn Part 2 on the docket . However, a cease-and-desist order prevented the producers at Behind The Lines from releasing their comedy, and now EWsays they’re filing a lawsuit to seek damages (and free up the restraints for future projects). The lawsuit []

Beautiful Creatures

Definitely better than Twilight as far as story and acting are concerned, but adaption wise, there was room for improvement.  Having read the book I understood the melodramatic moment and forgave them due to the ending, considering the acting was really good.  Jeremy Irons and Emma Thompson, enough said in that respect.  However, there were quite a number of changes.  Characters in the book were cut from the film and some character adaptations were not the way they should have been.  I’m not []

Warm Bodies Is The New Twilight: A Surprise Hit Driven By Teen Girls

By:  Katey Rich The Twilight saga is finally over. I know it seemed like it was never going to happen, but we made it through together, and the hordes who obsessed over sparkly Edward and hairy Jacob for years will have to move on to something else. Conventional wisdom says that next big thing will be Fifty Shades of Grey, the erotic and critically reviled novel currently on its way toward a film adaptation. But could the next Twilight be something good instead– and already out in theaters? []

Rupert Sanders Will Not Direct The Snow White And The Huntsman Sequel

By:  Kristy Puchko Newly minted film director Rupert Sanders has had a pretty incredible year with some major highs and lows. A celebrated director of television commercials, Sanders made his feature debut this past June with Universal Pictures‘ big budget action adventure Snow White and the Huntsman. While critics—myself included—panned the film for its nonsensical plot and dour execution, the CGI-stuffed reimagining of the classic fairy tale went on to earn nearly $400 million dollars worldwide. So, Sanders’ first film was a success for []

Man Arrested For Plotting To Open Fire At Twilight: Breaking Dawn Screening

By:  Mack Rawden Less than four months after James Holmes walked into a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises and ruined dozens of lives with a selfish and cowardly act, a twenty-year-old man has been arrested for planning his own theater massacre, this one in Bolivar, Missouri. Details are still fuzzy at this juncture, but authorities say Blaec Lammers recently purchased two assault rifles, more than four hundred rounds of ammunition and a ticket to a Sunday showing of Twilight: Breaking Dawn—Part 2. Lammers was []

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

Don’t judge me too harshly okay: it wasn’t all that bad. I am not going to tell any of you that you should see cause honestly, you don’t. If you ask me, Breaking Dawn Part 1 and Part 2 could have been combined into one movie, it didn’t need to be more than that. Kristen Stewart’s acting still sucks but you know, with everything else being so hilarious, absolutely hilarious if you ask me. But that’s the problem, it shouldn’t have been, []
