“Twilight” Sells Out More Than We Thought Possible

It’s official: “Twilight” is the sell-out of the century. In fact, it could even be the sell-out of the millennium. I liked the books, but then there was the movie which spawned obnoxious Robert Pattinson fangirls and incessant Kristen Stewart gossip. This was followed by fugly “Twilight” gear and a weekly TV show dedicated to the making of “New Moon.” Just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse, Summit and Creation Entertainment have teamed up to produce “Twlight” fan conventions. These ridic things are coming to a bunch of major U.S. cities, complete with panel discussions, parties, musical performances, screenings, competitions, auctions, and, of course, merchandising opportunities. Oh yeah, and celebs will show up for pics and autographs. The details are fuzzy but check out my predictions, after the jump. [NY Times] Keep reading »

Topless Lady Gaga Lets It All Hang OUT

Because nothing and no one is safe from the far-ranging influence of Twilight, Lady Gaga and OUT Magazine have now officially gone vampire. She of the crazy clothes can be found this month in the mag’s pages clad as scantily as ever, but they’ve traded in her usual avant-garde fare for plenty of skin, black leather, a whole lot of blood-smearing and the sort of skeleton-loving we’re pretty sure can’t be totally legal.

Holla! Another New Moon Teaser Trailer


It doesn’t take much to get “Twilight” fans in a tizzy. This new 14-second teaser trailer for “New Moon” is certainly doing the trick. What does the trailer show us? To, uh, not have high expectations for the acting and dialogue in this flick. OK, fine. We won’t judge it on this tiny snippet. But I think we can all agree that the highlight here is Taylor Lautner‘s bod. He’s over 18, right? Keep reading »

Stephenie Meyer Accused Of Plagiarizing Parts Of “Breaking Dawn”

These days, everyone and their mother is reading and writing about vampires. And apparently Twilight author Stephenie Meyer and lesser-known scribe Jordan Scott have “similar” vampy storylines. Scott is claiming that Meyer plagiarized main bits of Breaking Dawn from her novel The Nocturne, which was released in 2006. So what’s the beef?

Rachelle Lefevre Replaced By Bryce Dallas Howard In Third “Twilight” Movie

There’s something very fishy going on in “Twilight” land. Rachelle Lefevre, who played evil vampire Victoria in the first two flicks, has been replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard (aka, Ron Howard’s daughter) in the third film, “Eclipse.” Coincidentally, the third movie is when Victoria gets the most screen time. Summit Entertainment, the studio behind the film, said they recast the role due to “scheduling conflicts” with Lefevre’s much smaller indie flick, “Barney’s Version,” starring Dustin Hoffman and Paul Giamatti. But Lefevre begs to differ about the conflict. Keep reading »

“Twilight” Threads For Sale At Nordstrom, Of All Places

How convenient for rich tweeners who need both a $300 pair of shoes and “Twilight” t-shirt: Nordstrom will be hawking “New Moon” clothes come October 15. R-Patz obsessives can snatch up both a $32 “Team Edward” tee and a $30 necklace that features the family crest of the fictional Edwards clan. (There are tank tops and plaid jackets, too.) The price range is cheaper than we’d suspect from Nordstrom, but it’s also merch we’d expect to find at Hot Topic instead. Guess Nordstrom must really need the clams? [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

What Makes Vampire Sex So Hot?

It’s been, let’s see, almost three months since I’ve gotten laid. I’ve done a little making out, but in general, most of my sexual satisfaction these days is from watching “True Blood” every Sunday on HBO. It’s been a big year for vampires, but an even bigger one for vampire sex, which has got everyone from teenagers and Midwestern moms, to geek fan boys and, um, twentysomething bloggers obsessed with how they have it (“True Blood”) and how they resist having it (in “Twilight”). In both of these examples, the human is female and the vampire is male. That’s given some the idea that the vampire sex is bad for women because it fetishizes the meshing of sex, violence, and romance. To that I say, whatevs. If this fantasy is bad for women, well, then it’s good for me. Keep reading »
