Underworld Awakening (dir. Mans Marlind, Bjorn Stein)
2011 was a great year for Twilight Saga fans, and, as you might recall, we talked about this just a few weeks ago and counted down the eleven most memorable things about the year here.

This week's "From around the web" feature comes a day early. There's a ton to share today, so there'll be plenty to check into this weekend when closing out 2011. First up, NextMovie has unveiled its end of year movie poll results, and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 came in at a close second for "Best Movie of 2011," following Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows - Part 2. Shame. "Edward and Bella" also lost out to Hp's "Ron and Hermione" in the "Best Onscreen Couple" vote. Second place also went to The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 for "Most Anticipated Movie of 2012." First prize for that category? The Hunger Games. Robert Pattinson ("Edward Cullen") did win the category of "Hottest Dude of 2011" and his film, Water For Elephants nabbed the prize for "Movi »
Time for Twilight to move over. Lionsgate's big-screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins' novel The Hunger Games, hitting theaters next year, is the most anticipated film of 2012, a new poll conducted by MTV's NextMovie.com suggests, topping the final installment of the Twilight saga. Photos: 'Hunger Games' Official Character Posters Hunger Games, out March 23 and starring Jennifer Lawrence, grabbed more than half of the vote from movie fans, with 51 percent going its way. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, hitting theaters Nov. 16, followed close behind with 45 percent of the vote. Unfortunately for the rest

The results of our comprehensive battery of year end polls are in and with nearly a million votes cast (!) the message couldn't be more clear, as "Harry Potter" and "The Hunger Games" battled it out with "Twilight" and "Thor" for fan supremacy in nearly every category.
How lopsided were the final results? Well, in the voting for Best Movie of 2011, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2" edged out "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" by a margin of 51.55% to 47.99%, with the other four candidates — "Bridesmaids," "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," "The Help" and "The Muppets" — combining for only .46% of the vote.
This just in: People really love "Harry Potter" and "Twilight."
Of course, the heated rivalry between fans of "Harry Potter" and "Twilight" has been raging for years, but with "Harry Potter" coming to an end this year and "Twilight" entering its own twilight, it »

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 continues to be featured on a ton of 2011 year-end pieces, both "Best" and "Worst" for the year in some instances unfortunately, so to keep you abreast of the latest and to keep it short and sweet, here's a wrap of the latest! For starters, Entertainment Weekly picked the Breaking Dawn wedding as one of the best of the year, giving it an "A-" and noting that it was a gorgeous scene. Agreed on that one. It's too bad that EW then picked Breaking Dawn as one of the worst movies of the year. The same thing happened over at Yahoo! Breaking Dawn, as noted yesterday, was one of the most-searched-for films on their search engine, but they also picked it as having one of the worst movie posters of the year. Yahoo! made up for it by putting The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 »
On Christmas Eve, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 director Bill Condon shared his holiday cheer with the Official Twilight Saga Facebook page, saying "Holiday greetings to all of you and yours, and also a note of thanks for your support of Breaking Dawn. Your affection for the movie has been wonderful to experience. We're hard at work on Part 2, and are already very much looking forward to bringing it to you next year. See you soon! - Bill." He's not the only member of the Twilight family to spread cheer this year, though. The Twilight cast was active on Twitter over the weekend, and they shared some season's greetings and anecdotes from their celebrations with followers. Here's a wrap up of what they had to say. »
This week, there are loads of Twilight links to share from around the web. First of all, great job on getting Kristen Stewart ("Bella Swan") and Robert Pattinson ("Edward Cullen") to the next round of E! Online's "Best of 2011" for "Leading Ladies" and "Leading Men." Both are down to the final competitors, and each celebrity who wins the vote-off will have $25,000 donated to the charity of their choice.

"The Amazing Spider-man," July 3, 2012 -- Andrew Garfield steps into Peter Parker's ... unitard ... as the infamous Webbed Wonder in this flick which explores Peter trying to unravel the mysteries of his past. Check out the lovely Emma Stone go back to her blond roots in the role of Gwen Stacy! "The Dark Knight Rises," July 20, 2012 -- Christian Bale. Morgan Freeman. Anne Hathaway. Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Gary Oldman. Tom Hardy. Oh, and it's Batman!! This just speaks for itself. "The Bourne Legacy," August 3, 2012 -- The "Bourne" trilogy, starring Matt Damon as Jason Bourne, were some of the greatest action films of the 2000s. We were bummed when Matt decided to not return, but Jeremy Renner as a badass spy definitely has us interested."Total Recall," August 3, 2012 -- Based on the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger flick of the same name, this remake stars Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel and Bryan Cranston. Sci-fi, action, Colin Farrell? »

 It took Robert Pattinson three and a half movies to getting around to bedding his lady love as Edward Cullen in The Twilight Saga (oh, um, spoilers), but as the lead of Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod's Bel Ami, Pattinson more than makes up for lost time. Based on a novel by Guy de Maupassant, the drama follows a poor young man who climbs the ranks of 1890s Parisian society by calculatedly seducing its wealthiest and most influential women. Among his conquests, apparently, are Christina Ricci, Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas. Watch the trailer after the jump. [via The Playlist ] Though I'm not a Twilight fan, I'm not a hater, either, and I with nothing but the best for Pattinson and his co-stars in their post-Twilight careers. So I don't think it's my bias that has me believing his performance looks pretty bad here. I like the brief glimpses of Pattionson as the rakish Duroy, »

Melissa Rosenberg, who wrote the screenplays for all five installments to the Twilight Saga, has now become the highest-grossing female screenwriter of all time, with her films having grossed over $2.56 billion according to The Hollywood Reporter. Rosenberg is one of the few filmmakers in the Twilight Saga whose position never changed - meanwhile there were four different directors and a few producer changes. According to THR, the highest-grossing male screenwriter is Steve Kloves, who did most of the Harry Potter installments, and has $6 billion plus under his belt. It's a tough stretch to think that the final installment to the Twilight Saga - The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 - might bring here anywhere near those numbers, but it should help to solidify her space at the top of the female screen »
I just added this latest poll to the homepage, but felt it would be just as fun to create an actual post as I ask you, "If you could see one of these 20 upcoming 2012 releases today which one would it be?" Yes, I'm sure for some of you there may be another release you are more interested in seeing, but I felt this was a good way of covering the big ones and hopefully I included a film that would cover movie fans of all ages, genders and tastes, though I'm sure art house fans may be a bit under-represented. So, which that disclaimer out of the way, what will it be? Comic fans will have to choose between The Dark Knight Rises, The Avengers and The Amazing Spider-Man. Crime drama fans will have to consider if Gangster Squad is the most appealing of the bunch. Perhaps Pixar is your »

Forbes sure has been showing the Twilight Saga a good bit of love this year, having named Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson two of Hollywood's "Best Actors for the Buck" and among 2011's highest earners. The latest is this: Forbes has named The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 actresses Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Foy, who portrays "Renesmee Cullen" in the film, two of ten actors to watch in 2012. Noting that Foy will have a larger part in Part 2 than she did in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1, Forbes' list includes the two among those which the site expects to blossom next year. Perhaps they expect Stewart's Snow White and the Huntsman to come into play as well because they chose not to include the two male leads from the Twilight Saga, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, on the list (or may »
The first poster for Robert Pattinson's next movie, Cosmopolis, has been unveiled. Check that out in the left sidebar. There was a bit of confusion regarding the poster reveal, as several outlets originally picked up a fan made poster and declared it to be the official one before realizing they'd been duped. CinemaBlend has the full story on that one. Robert Pattinson filmed Cosmopolis in Toronto this summer, after getting done with The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 filming and then promotional work for Water For Elephants. The film is based on the novel of the same name by Don DeLillo, in which a young, wealthy man named "Eric Parker" scours Manhattan, New York for a place to get a haircut and in the course of the day watches his family's fortune fall victim to a badly placed »

The Scoop: One of the most popular and acclaimed Broadway musicals in recent memory, "Rock of Ages" tells the story of a couple of small-town dreamers who get caught up in the big-city spotlight -- and it tells that story using the transformative power of '80s rock. That's enough for us, but if you're somehow not sold, the film version of "Rock of Ages" also features a Who's Who of Hollywood stars, including Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti, Bryan Cranston and Catherine Zeta-Jones. Rock on!

Cinematographer Guillermo Navarro, who worked on both The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 with director Bill Condon, has given a few fascinating tidbits about his experience working on the two films and what it took to make the angles just right for certain important moments from each film. Speaking to Kodak, he talked about the Part 1 birth sequence, which he described as "extreme and strange" and challenging in the sense that his job for that moment was to "pull the audience in so they really feel like part of the event." Here's what he had to say about approaching that moment in the film: "The camera was pretty much positioned from her point of view, with everybody interacting with the lens as the drama takes plac »
Last week, Elizabeth Reaser ("Esme Cullen" in the Twilight Saga) attended the New York premiere for Young Adult - her latest film, which was written by Diablo Cody and was directed by Jason Reitman - and last night, she attended the Los Angeles premiere for the same. Young Adult is getting a lot of great buzz, which was somewhat expected given the roster of filmmakers involved with the production as well as the cast. During her press junket work for the film, Reaser did the attached video interview with Tribute Movies in which she revealed that she was able to squeeze filming for Young Adult and her guest appearances on The Good Wife in before her parts in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 came up, thanks to producer Wyck Godfrey. »
Next year will be a great one for films. The blockbusters alone have us with too many movies to be looking forward to. With epic superhero flicks, returns to old franchises and the ending of others, we are in for a real treat next year.
But we need your help. We want to know what movie you can't wait to see next year. Vote in the poll below to help decide which is the film to beat next year.
According to both Christian Bale and Christopher Nolan, this is going to be it for their take on Batman, so enjoy it while it lasts. With so much talk about how "Rises" will tie up loose ends and bring the series to a close, we need answers and won't be satisfied until we get them. Will Batman live? Is Catwoman good or evil? What the hell did Bane just say? »

As anyone who has eagerly anticipated the arrival of a film, book, TV show or album knows, waiting can be painful. Such is the case for the very dedicated "Twilight" fans, who have nearly a full year to wait until "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" is released in theaters.
For this installment of "Twilight" Tuesday, MTV News asked Twilighters how they're passing the time from now until November 16, 2012, and keeping their obsessions alive. They did not disappoint and came up with some solid, creative plans.
Our friends at Twilight Lexicon offered a shout-out to Internet stars/comedic sister duo Hannah and Hilly Hindi's "The Hillywood Show," who recently reached their goal of raising $10,000 to produce a "Breaking Dawn" parody. »
In case you haven't checked your calendar lately, 2011 is soooo last year (almost). With the year winding down, it's time to look forward to all the awesome movies coming out in 2012.
Fandango released its 2012 Hot List poll, showing what movies and stars moviegoers are most looking forward to seeing next year. Interestingly, the poll divvies up votes by gender. While The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is the most anticipated 2012 blockbuster for men, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 is women's No. 1 pick. Guess women are from Venus and men are from Middle-Earth. Here is the results of Fandango's (unscientific) poll:
2012's Most Anticipated Blockbuster:
According to Women
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2
The Hunger Games
