Hugh Jackman In Real Steel Coming November 2011

10 December 2009 10:06 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Heads up, everyone: the Hugh Jackman robot boxing movie is really happening, and it will be out in time for Thanksgiving in 2011. THR reports that Touchstone Pictures has set a release date of November 18, 2011 for the film, which will be the first collaboration between Touchstone and DreamWorks, the studio recently acquired by Disney. What's more interesting about this, though, is what it might mean for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. No, seriously. That frame right before Thanksgiving was occupied by both Twilight and New Moon, and even though Eclipse is going for a summer release, the franchise could presumably return to November, especially if Breaking Dawn gets broken up into two sections. The film hasn't been greenlit yet, and while it could presumably start filming in February and be ready for a November 2010 release date, it seems more likely they'll hold it for summer 2011, and maybe bring in part two »

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse Goes IMAX

9 December 2009 8:43 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Summit Entertainment has announced The Twilight Saga: Eclipse will be released in both conventional theaters and in IMAX on June 30, 2010.  While the film was shot with regular cameras, IMAX is going to digitally re-master the movie with their proprietary IMAX Dmr (Digital Re-mastering) technology so it can be shown in IMAX theaters.

With the huge money The Twilight Saga has been making at theaters, it’s no surprise everyone wants it in IMAX.  This way, theater owners can charge more for tickets and everyone involved can make more money.  It’s just unfortunate they didn’t film any of the movie using IMAX cameras when it was in production.  Of course, with The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn still to be shot, perhaps the final chapter will be a real IMAX release and Twilight fans will be able to see Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner fill the whole screen. »

How to spot a fake 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn' 'casting call'

6 December 2009 2:33 AM, PST | Twilight Examiner | See recent Twilight Examiner news »

At present, there are two certainties with regard to The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. The first known fact is that the film has as yet not received the green light. The second is that there are plenty of "sources" out there who would have you believe that it has received the green light - particularly to coax Twilight fans into paying gobs of money to respond to "casting calls." These sort of scandals have been brought to light, in detail, by former Twilight casting director Lana Veenker. Since the content of the e-mail is so thorough and articulate, there's no need for further adieu. Here's what Veenker had to »

'New Moon' star Taylor Lautner in talks to play in 'Max Steel'

4 December 2009 4:08 AM, PST | Twilight Examiner | See recent Twilight Examiner news »

The world is his proverbial oyster. Of course, now that The Twilight Saga: New Moon is in theaters, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is complete for filming, and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn sits somewhere in film limbo, Taylor Lautner is on the market for his next post-Valentine's Day role. According to the L.A. Times, it might just be Max Steel - a film by Paramount Pictures that centers around a superhero. "Steel” traces back to the toy shelf -- the Mattel line that hit stores in 2001, pulled in $100 million in worldwide business in its first year and spawned an animated series that lasted three seasons. Lautner would play Josh McGrath, a 19-year-old extreme-sports athlete who is accidentally exposed to the unleashed power of nanotechological machines, which become part of him and (in the old show, at least) give »

'Twilight' producer Wyck Godfrey talks 'Breaking Dawn'

1 December 2009 7:26 PM, PST | Twilight Examiner | See recent Twilight Examiner news »

In the midst of all of this Breaking Dawn discussion (or, perhaps, lack thereof), the words of Twilight series producer Wyck Godfrey can certainly help in understanding the position of the film studio (Summit Entertainment) on the matter. According to his interview with MakingOf.com, there's certainly no shortage of interest on the studio's part in bringing The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn to the big screen. Making sure The Twilight Saga: New Moon and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse were and are up to snuff, it seems, was quite a taxing and time-consuming task for the crew. That, of course, has been a gimme for a while - especially since that was exactly what representatives of the studio stated in response to rumor »

'Twilight: Breaking Dawn' Will be Made, and It Sounds Crazy!

1 December 2009 1:58 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

In the Making Of interview to the right, Twilight franchise producer Wyck Godfrey briefly discusses the plans to turn the fourth novel in Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" franchise into a feature film. He says: We are about to embark on that. Getting New Moon and Eclipse finished in the amount of time we did, given that Twilight came out just last year has kind of taken all of our efforts. There's every intention of making Breaking Dawn and that'll begin November 21, figuring out the stage and what the time schedule is for it. Considering The Twilight Saga: New Moon was just released and is already breaking records having amassed $230 million domestically and nearly $474 million worldwide in just ten days you may be thinking this is an absolute no-brainer. So why is this a story that has hit every website today and why hasn't Summit already announced The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn? »

More signs that ‘Breaking Dawn’ will officially be produced

1 December 2009 11:59 AM, PST | ReelLoop.com | See recent Reel Loop news »

It’s pretty much a foregone conclusion that The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn will be made. How could it not? Twilight madness has taken over our youth (and single moms) and with madness comes cold hard cash. Though, oddly, even after the record-setting release of New Moon, Summit Entertainment still hasn’t officially announced that the fourth entry in the Stephenie Meyer vampire series will be made. But friends, make no mistake. It’s going to happen.

In a recent interview, Twilight producer Wyck Godfrey has promised that Breaking Dawn will be headed to a theater near you.

“There’s every intention to make Breaking Dawn,” he said. On numerous occasions, series star Robert Pattinson has also confirmed that Breaking Dawn is “pretty much inevitable.”

“I think it’s going to be probably end of next year before filming,” he said talking about production kicking off before the end of »

Twilight Finale May Be Split Into Two

1 December 2009 11:55 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Moviegoers who think that the Twilight saga will be dead and buried after the third installation, Eclipse, had better think again: Summit Entertainment may release not just one but two movies based on the fourth novel in the series. The film company is considering turning Breaking Dawn into a two-part finale to the movie series, Variety reports. Of course, there are complications to such a move. First off, screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg, who wrote the first three movies' scripts, hasn't begun writing. Second, director Chris Weitz, who filmed New Moon, has said he wants to quit the movie business after finishing a pet project, »

Summit Considering ‘Breaking Dawn’ Split

1 December 2009 3:57 AM, PST | newsinfilm.com | See recent newsinfilm news »

The Twilight Saga: New Moon is dominating theaters and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is in post-production for next summer, which means its time for Summit Entertainment to sit down and have serious discussions about the fourth and final novel in the Stephenie Meyer series, Breaking Dawn.

There was some early talk in April of putting together the last installment by spring 2010, but saga screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg shot down the rumors at the time.

The studio purchased the rights to the entire saga from Meyer before moving ahead with sequels and we know they’ve retained the services of Rosenberg for the inevitable fourth.  Robert Pattinson, who plays male lead Edward Cullen, even gave a tentative shooting start date of fall 2010.

If Pattinson’s word wasn’t enough, producer Wyck Godfrey promised “there’s every intention” The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn will get made.  Of course it will, let’s move on. »

'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn' situation

30 November 2009 7:33 PM, PST | Twilight Examiner | See recent Twilight Examiner news »

Every Twilight fan out there knows without a doubt that The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn is not a project that Summit Entertainment is apt to let slip through the cracks. Why would they? Not only would they lose a very profitable opportunity, but they'd also leave Twilight fans disappointed and it doesn't seem that this is the conclusion sought by the film studio. That said, a lot of fans were probably expecting a Breaking Dawn announcement shortly after some of the staggering numbers from The Twilight Saga: New Moon's opening weekend take - but to no avail. Nearly two weeks after the film's theatrical release, things are still (and this is a bad pun) Up In The Air on Breaking Dawn. Variety opines that the B ... courting back The Twilight Saga: New Moon director Chris Weitz in spite of his interest in directing The Gardener. Again, it's all speculation at this point, »

Report: Summit wants fan favorite Chris Weitz to direct 'Breaking Dawn'

30 November 2009 6:13 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The fans and cast have spoken about who they want to direct the last "Twilight" movies and Summit Entertainment has listened.  After the phenomenal response to "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" it appears the mini-major is ready to offer director Chris Weitz the opportunity to direct the fourth and possibly fifth installment "Breaking Dawn." So far, only screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg has been brought on to help a script for the fan-polarizing fourth chapter, but according to Variety, it's unclear whether she's writing one movie or two.  Summit would like to stretch the moneymaking franchise out further than creator Stephenie Meyer's final »

'The Twilight Saga: New Moon' success turns eyes toward 'Eclipse' and 'Breaking Dawn'

27 November 2009 12:51 AM, PST | Twilight Examiner | See recent Twilight Examiner news »

Without a doubt, The Twilight Saga: New Moon's uber-successful run in the movie marketplace has turned otherwise unknowing heads, appeased the wishes of Twilight series fans, and left everyone looking forward to the next installment(s) of the Twilight series films. Of course, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse wrapped up before New Moon hit the first theater, but The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn (be it one part or two) has yet to even reach the official greenlight stage - though the studio has admitted looking forward to making the film(s). Eclipse, which is directed by David Slade, is due in theaters on June 30, 2010, and it's already a hot-button point of discussion with some of the cast. For instance, Kristen Stewart revealed ... Robert Pattinson, quite suitably, looks forward to ... Ashley Greene had a few juicy ... unless Stephenie Meyer authors a new installment to the series and agrees to its ... Assuming »

'Twilight' studio issues official stance on 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn'

24 November 2009 3:40 AM, PST | Twilight Examiner | See recent Twilight Examiner news »

Twilight film studio Summit Entertainment has issued an official statement on The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn's status at this point and time. A rep for the studio issued the statement exclusively to His Golden Eyes, saying "Summit Entertainment looks forward to bringing 'Breaking Dawn' to the big screen but at this point any additional information is premature." The response comes on the heels of high levels of anticipation for such information given the extraordinary weekend that The Twilight Saga: New Moon enjoyed on its opening theatrical debut. So, there's good news, and there's bad news. The good news is that the studio has officially (aside from placing "coming soon" over the potential film's title on the New Moon w »

First 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn' soundtrack contender?

24 November 2009 3:25 AM, PST | Twilight Examiner | See recent Twilight Examiner news »

You've heard plenty about how The Twilight Saga: New Moon's soundtrack formulation involved the attempts by many fledgling artists to get on the album with their New Moon-inspired music (some of which, by the way, fans were and remain extremely in favor of). So, now that The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is next on the to-be-released roster, it might not surprise you to hear about an up-and-coming group that was vying for a spot on the sure-to-be-a-success album for the film. Well, take two steps ahead instead of one - surprised yet? Apparently, the first band showing interest in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn has already made its way to the surface by issuing this video (with accompanying acting - w »

The "Twilight Saga" franchise is headed to FX.

FX has acquired the ad-supported TV rights to the four "Twilight" movies in a package deal with producer Summit Entertainment that also includes the indie studio's Oscar hopeful "The Hurt Locker," the Nicolas Cage thriller "Knowing" and actioner "Push."

'Twilight' news that was eclipsed by 'New Moon' release

23 November 2009 12:53 PM, PST | Twilight Examiner | See recent Twilight Examiner news »

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse · Robert Pattinson · The Twilight Saga: New Moon · Nikki Reed · Kellan Lutz · Melissa Rosenberg · Twilight * The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Tim Burton ... The Twilight Saga: New Moon had a big weekend, in case you hadn't heard (see here for more on that). In the midst of the New Moon blitz, though, there were a few other Twilight saga-related stories (aside from the vacuous usuals) that you might've missed. For starters, Robert Pattinson now has his leading lady for his spring shoot Bel Ami - and it's not Nicole Kidman. Uma Thurman will tackle the role of "a woman who is extremely involved and connected in the goings-on of Parisian society [who] helps [George] Duroy [, Pattinson's character,] in his ascent, later becoming his wife," according to The Hollywood Reporter. Also according to THR, Kristin Scott Thomas has joined the cast as "a socialite who falls for Duroy, becoming clingy in the process. »
