Blind Side Eclipses New Moon on Thanksgiving

Bella and Edward in New Moon

Despite predicted dominance at the box office this Thanksgiving weekend, Twi-hards seemed to be too busy stuffing their faces with food to keep up with movie-goers set to see Sandra Bullock‘s football drama The Blind Side.

Raking in $9.5 million, The Blind Side rushed ahead (barely) of New Moon, which received $9.2 million—raising its cumulative total to $188.4 million.

Will this keep up the rest of the holiday weekend? While I certainly do not possess Alice Cullen’s psychic abilities, I’ve surmised ten reasons as to why the latest installment of The Twilight Saga could be losing its box office grip.

Robert Pattinson's and Taylor Lautner's abs

“It was incredibly annoying when I saw Taylor [Lautner]‘s transformation. I realized just having a pre-pubescent girl’s body wasn’t going to work for me any more. In fact I saw him and thought ‘Jesus, I’m going to get fired.’”

Quote of the Day: Chris Weitz on Kissing Scenes

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson in New Moon

“It’s not like when they’re about to kiss, I’m leaning in and saying, just off camera, ‘Tender, tender!’ or anything like that. I just let them do their thing. I think it would be creepy and inappropriate for me to advise them how to kiss one another or what it’s like to be young in love. I’m 40 years old. I’m not going to Polanski out on them.”

- New Moon director Chris Weitz on directing on-screen (also, perhaps, off-screen?) lovers Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.

Robert Pattinson Wants Model Lover

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrity Gossip,

Robert Pattinson and his Edward Cullen charm

Robert Pattinson can’t understand why he isn’t dating a model.

The 23-year-old Twilight actor expected to attract more interest from the opposite sex when he shot to stardom playing vampire Edward Cullen in the first film of the hit vampire franchise. He said: “I don’t have a girlfriend. I don’t know why. You always think you’re going to get more girls after you’ve made a movie and it never happens. You sit there and you’re like, ‘I’m a big movie star and I want to go out with some models’. But I don’t know why that doesn’t happen.”
