Here’s the teaser trailer for the final film in the Twiilght series — or, at least, the final film until the merged Lionsgate/Summit company decides to reboot it altogether. Many of you may have already seen this in theaters, since it played in front of The Hunger Games, which just had the third-highest opening weekend of all time, behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and The Dark Knight.

The kicker shot in this teaser is pretty good: Bella (Kristen Stewart) in the woods, hunting as a new vampire, having been turned at the climax of the last film in order (ironically) to preserve her life. The thrust of this final film, which follows the marriage of Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella, and the rapid in utero development and violent birth of their child, is a confrontation with the vampire ruling class that has been seen here and there throughout the series. There’s no real hint of that here, however. This is all about Bella’s new non-human nature.

The sequels never stop, and the first one we want to talk about today is Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Sea of Monsters, the sequel to the 2010 film Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief. We know that Thor Freudenthal will direct the movie based on the second book in Rick Riordan‘s YA series, with a script by Ed Wood writers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski. Logan Lerman and Alexandra D’addario are said to be returning, and now Variety reports that Douglas Smith (Big Love) is in final talks to play a co-starring role.

The Sea of Monsters, which sees the modern versions of characters inspired by Greek mythology seeking the famous and mythical Golden Fleece, is set for release on March 26, 2013. So we’ll probably hear about more casting and a shoot start soon.

After the break, slight news on Crank 3, Insidious 2 and that still-theoretical Twilight continuation. Read More »

When Lionsgate bought Summit Entertainment a couple weeks back — or when Lionsgate bought Twilight, I might say to be more direct — Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer said he would like to continue Twilight, either on film or television.

Now, during a conference call to report Lionsgate’s third quarter earnings for 2011, Rob Friedman, the co-chair of the studio’s motion picture group, says they’re ready to make a sixth Twilight film if Stephenie Meyer will write another book. Read More »

Here’s a story in two parts. The first part is that, after a very long series of negotiations that goes back to 2008, a deal was finalized today in which Lionsgate will purchase Summit Entertainment for $412.5m in cash and stock. Part of the impetus for the sale is the ending Twilight film series, which concludes this fall with the release of Breaking Dawn Part 2. Or does that planned conclusion really have to be the end of Twilight?

While Summit investors wanted to get this deal done before Twilight ended and Summit’s overall value fell, it seems like some at Lionsgate don’t feel like Twilight has to be done. Today Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer said he hopes to continue Twilight in some form, either in film or television. Read More »

Here’s one more reason to think twice about seeing the latest Twilight installment, Breaking Dawn, not that box office numbers suggest that many people have really thought twice about going. It’s not just that the film is a terrible one, or that it has some of the most horrific visions of sexual development and romantic relationships we’ve ever seen aimed at teen girls.

No, it is that the movie is reportedly causing seizures in some viewers. The explanation, which goes hand in hand with some Breaking Dawn spoilers, is below. Read More »

‘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.

It’s a wedding! Squee! I know that the /Film audience is not, by and large, one that is obsessed with every little bit of Twilight news that comes across the interwebs, but the first real footage from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 is something of interest. There’s not a lot to this clip, which is (of course) a cross-promotion with MTV. It is essentially an example of that new breed of movie marketing, a trailer for a trailer. But if you’re truly on the hook for Twilight, you can watch a bride walk down the aisle to her vampire, after the break. Read More »
