Twilight on Track to Break Records

Less than 24-hours after it opened, Twilight is on track to have the second highest-grossing opening weekend in 2011. Breaking Dawn – Part 1 is set to take in $65 to $75 million this weekend after being released at midnight last night. It’s inaugural midnight show alone brought in #30.3 million. Breaking Dawn  has a big enough following that it’s already taking business away from other films out this weekend.

Until Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was released this summer, the last two Twilight movies set records for best midnight performance.  Deathly Hallows earned $43.6 million for its midnight showings, making Breaking Dawn number two in terms of all-time midnight best.

As if you need us to tell you, the film stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.


Twilight Actors Cemented in Hollywood

As if their names and their movie franchise wouldn’t give them enough star power, Twilight saga stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattison and Taylor Lautner are officially cemented in Hollywood history. The group each put their hand- and foot-prints in cement on the Walk of Fame outside Grauman’s Chinese Theater.

Each actor took turns saying a few words – some less awkwardly than others – thanking their fans and their franchise. “This is such an incredible honor,”  Pattison gushed, “how young we are, it’s kind of ridiculous and amazing at the same time.”

After that, each star signed their names in the wet cement and left and hand- and foot-print behind in a section labeled “The Twilight Saga.” And of course, after the ceremony the trio was on hand to sign autographs for hundreds and hundreds of screaming fans.

Twilight: Breaking Dawn Release Date Announced

Get ready Twilight fans! The official Breaking Dawn release date has been announced. The fourth installment of the Twilight Saga is set to hit theaters on November 18, 2011. Fans will still have to wait a while, however, to find out if Breaking Dawn will end up split into two films.

We still don’t know if Twilight: Breaking Dawn will eventually be split into two movies, like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, but it’s likely we’ll probably learn that info before much longer. Meanwhile, Twilight fans can go ahead and mark Nov. 18, 2011 on their calendars as the official Breaking Dawn release date.

We are especially curious about how the book conversion for the final installment of the Twilight series will turn out on film for Breaking Dawn. Unlike previous Twilight movies, author Stephenie Meyer will actually be hands-on as a producer for Breaking Dawn. Plus, we’re hoping for very good things out of Oscar-winning director Bill Condon.

Speaking of Meyer, the Twilight author gifted Breaking Dawn actors with a special treat to help them immerse themselves more fully into their characters – advance copies of the new Twilight novella The Brief Second Life of Bree Tanner! For the rest of us, we’ll have to buy our copies or wait to read it free on Meyer’s website June 5th.

New Twilight: Eclipse Photo – Bella and Edward in Bed!

We admit, this is completely gratuitous. Still, we couldn’t help but share the newest Twilight: Eclipse still photo released for fans to droll over. Especially since this one features our favorite shiny vampire Edward Cullen in bed!

In the new Twilight: Eclipse photo still, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart cozy up together for a serious dramatic talk about why Edward doesn’t want Bella to become a vampire.

The new still photo comes from the scene in the movie’s first trailer where Edward tells Bella he knows “the consequences of the choice you’re making” when she asks why he is against her becoming a vampire. “After a few decades, everyone you know will be dead,” Edward says in his oh-so-sexy voice.

It won’t be very much longer now Twilight fans! But June 30th just can’t come fast enough for us!

Can Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner Split Up If They Weren’t Dating?

Rumors have been flying around for a while over the alleged romance between Twilight: New Moon hottie Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift, the current golden girl of the music industry. Despite the fact that neither has actually admitted they were dating, the couple has apparently already split up. At least, that’s the story according to the tabloids.

We always thought the Taylor Squared couple was a grand idea; they certainly do look cute together. Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner did seem to be spending quite a bit of time together. The alleged couple was spotted out and about on what appeared to be dates several times and both playfully referenced each other when they hosted (separately) on Saturday Night Live. But, and it’s a big but, neither Taylor has ever actually fessed up to a romantic relationship between the two.

Regardless, the tabloids and gossip sites have insisted on calling the two Taylors a couple for the past three months or so. Whether or not Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift were actually a couple, the alleged romance now apparently appears to be over. A source reportedly told the relationship “wasn’t really developing into anything, and wasn’t going to, so they decided they were better as friends.”

The unidentified (as usual) source said the two Taylors just had “no chemistry.” Well, if that is true, we hope they were able to fake it enough to pass off as a hot and bothered couple in their upcoming flick Valentine’s Day. From the brief clip of them snogging in a trailer from the film, we personally think their “chemistry” looked just fine.

Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift Kissing in New Valentine’s Day Trailer

Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift may or may not be making out in real life, but they certainly are kissing up a storm in the new trailer for their upcoming film Valentine’s Day. Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner lock lips – and seem to quite enjoy it – in the new trailer for Valentine’s Day, set to be released in February.

The ensemble romantic comedy stars a massive cast of Hollywood A-Listers, including Ashton Kutcher, Jennifer Garner, Jessica Biel, Julia Roberts and, of course, Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift. Actually, there are so many stars in the trailer alone it’s hard to even keep track!

In the new Valentine’s Day trailer released this week, the two Taylors have a (far too brief) shining moment of making out awesomeness. Sadly, we’ve heard the two don’t actually appear in the film all that much more than what you actually see in the video clip.

Check out the Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift kissing scene in the new Valentine’s Day trailer below – but don’t blink or you’ll miss it!
