New Moon Poster

Ooh Jacob - what new beefy biceps you have…

Two pieces of good news for Twilight fans today. In addition to this glimpse at what will have to offer (a love triangle!!), a fourth installment of the film has already been confirmed. (Apparently the studio didn’t need to know how the third - or the second - one would do.)

No production start date has yet been announced for Breaking Dawn. In the meantime, Moon will arrive in theaters on November 20 while Eclipse is scheduled for a June 30, 2010 debut.

The 2009 Academy Awards: Live Commentary

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Awards,

The Oscars

After a year away from live Oscars coverage, I’m thrilled to be back for the 2009 Academy Awards.

Even though Dark Knight‘s snub will probably keep a number of viewers away (how many can honestly say they’ve seen The Reader?), I’m eagerly anticipating several moments from this evening’s broadcast.

Will Heath Ledger’s family bring the house to tears? Is Mickey Rourke going to make the producers wince? Will the cameras pan to Brangelina after Jennifer Aniston’s presentation? Are Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron really (really?) going to do a song and dance number?

To find out if this will be the year of the Slumdog or the underdog, stay tuned here for the live results!

Robert Pattinson Trades in Fangs for Mustache in Little Ashes

Even though New Moon won’t be on the books for several months, you can still get another fix now.

Later this spring, the 22-year-old heartthrob will set aside the blood sucking and pick up a brush for his role as Salvador Dali. Pattinson will play an 18-year-old version of the famous surrealist painter.

The film, set in 1922, will focus on the relationship between the eccentric artist and his two friends, poet/dramatist Federico García Lorca (Javier Beltran) and filmmaker Luis Buñel (Matthew McNulty). It will also explore the attraction between Lorca and Dali.

Little Ashes is scheduled to open on March 27.

Box Office Breakdown: Audiences Say Yes to Jim Carrey

Yes Man

How will remember Winter Solstice 2008? As the weekend he placed second.

Prior to Friday’s premieres, number crunchers were already predicting a close race between headliners Jim Carrey and Will Smith. Unfortunately for Warner Bros., ‘s ultimate victory felt slightly hollow. The comedy’s $18.2 million gross was nowhere near the figures Carrey used to generate. (Bruce Almighty‘s premiere earned $68 million in 2003; Liar Liar took in $31.4 million in 1997.) Yes did, though, do better than 2005’s Fun with Dick and Jane. (That film raked in $14.1 million during its open.)

Will Smith didn’t have much to celebrate over the last three days either. His latest film, , only took in $14.8 million. That’s a number almost unheard of in Smith-land. The drama, directed by Pursuit of Happyness’ Gabriele Muccino, was the actor’s lowest grosser since Ali. (That film earned $14.7 million when it debuted in December 2001.)
