Above is you first look at Frank Darabont‘s new show L.A Noir, which was just picked up by TNT for six episodes. After the jump, read much more about the show as well as the following:

Forget about Tyler Perry and that $130 million he raked in last year. Even the man behind Madea would have to toil for almost five centuries at that rate to equal the $62 billion personal fortune amassed by Smaug. The Middle-earth dragon dominates Forbes‘ list of the 15 wealthiest charcters, followed by the likes of Carlisle Cullen, Lisbeth Salander, Tywin Lannister, and Robert Crawley.

As you might guess, the accounting doesn’t seem entirely scientific. It seems suspiciously convenient, for example, that most of the men, women, and creatures in the Top 15 come from pop culture franchises that are especially hot right now. But if you’ve ever wondered whether Tony Stark or Bruce Wayne would dominate in a pissing contest for the 1%, hit the jump for the rankings.

With The Twilight Saga dominating at the box office and The Walking Dead leading TV ratings, we can argue ’til the cows come home about the relative merits and failings of each type of paranormal creature. But for one iconic filmmaker, at least, there’s no question. “I happen to like vampires more than zombies,” Martin Scorsese revealed in a recent interview. Hit the jump for his musings on what makes bloodsuckers superior to brain-eaters.

‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn’ Trailer

Now that Bella and Edward have spent three whole films falling desperately in love, they’re finally taking things to the next level. In the brand-new trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1, everyone’s favorite sparklevamp and his beloved invite their loved ones to watch them make it official.

In real life, when my roommate and I get invitations to our human friends’ weddings, we post them on our fridge and then forget about them until all the cheap registry gifts are already taken. Apparently, getting invited to a vampire wedding is far more exciting and involves way more ripping off of shirts in the rain. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Just as we hear that Megan Fox has been given the boot by Michael Bay for Transformers 3, there is news that secondary Twilight players Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene will remain employed for the last film(s) in the series.

See, while Summit is reportedly ready to say, “yeah, we’re splitting Breaking Dawn into two films,” there has been a hold-up. Lutz and Green wanted more money for their services in the fifth film. A lot more money. And, depending on who you believe, they didn’t get as much as they were asking for. But they are still in the film(s). Read More »

Because I know you’re all hanging on this info: Summit has scheduled Breaking Dawn, the last film in The Twilight Saga, for release on November 18, 2011. For those keeping track, that’s a year and a half after the release of Eclipse, the third film in the series, which makes Breaking Dawn the chapter that will have the longest production schedule since the series began.

Is that because it will be two films, rather than one? Summit still hasn’t announced whether it will split the last book into two films, likely because there is a lot of contract work to be done with the cast. And if their reps are doing their jobs, chances are there’s some hardball being played. But all sources say that Summit wants two films, and it’s a safe bet that there will be two halves of Breaking Dawn on screens when all is said and done. But for now, we get at least some of the final book’s pregnancy/birthing/vampire baby insanity just before Thanksgiving next year. [THR]

The Twilight Saga: New Moon Movie Trailer

newmoontrailer_1

In conjunction with the MTV Movie Awards, which are pushing the series like mad, the full trailer for The Twilight Saga: New Moon has debuted online at MySpace. This is the first good look we’ve had at the work being done by director Chris Weitz (The Golden Compass, About A Boy) who took over after Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke departed the franchise.

The clip opens with the sort of drama between Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart) that is the lifeblood of this ‘saga’ before moving on to some classic human/vampire conflict and a look at werewolves as envisioned by this series.
