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 »

You can’t put lipstick on a pig, as they say, so there’s no way to dress this up: rather than updating the poster article from earlier today to include this teaser one-sheet for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1, I’m giving the image its own space. No characters are revealed in this poster — it’s just a pretty ol’ sunset with a logo overlaid. No vampire baby births or werewolf love scenes, sorry. There’s not even really anything to make fun of.

Let’s take a rare dip into the Twilight pool. The first half of the two-part series climax, Breaking Dawn, is set to be released on November 18, and Summit is starting the promo machine. A set of new photos has been released for the film, along with a big cover story in Entertainment Weekly that doesn’t tell us too much, but promises some punch to the weird, bloody end of the story.

What is Page 2? Page 2 is a compilation of stories and news tidbits, which for whatever reason, didn’t make the front page of /Film. After the jump we’ve included 32 different items, fun images, videos, casting tidbits, articles of interest and more. It’s like a mystery grab bag of movie web related goodness. If you have any interesting items that we might’ve missed that you think should go in /Film’s Page 2 – email us!

UPDATE: As some have noted, this photo of Mackenzie Foy is not a still from Breaking Dawn, but from a photoshoot with the actress. We apologize for the confusion, and blame the very Twilight-esque field of flowers. The title treatment below is the real deal, so the post stands.
Here are two tidbits from the first part of Breaking Dawn, the final chapter(s) in The Twilight Saga. Above is a crop of the first look at Mackenzie Foy as Renesmee, aka the daughter of Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart). And below is a full version of that image, along with the thrilling title card (or ‘title treatment’ as Summit calls it) for the film. Read More »
There’s a batch of Breaking Dawn casting to communicate tonight. One chunk is new info, while the other is from a day back. (We don’t bend over backward to get every bit of Twilight news, as you might understand.) The production now has its Denali Clan in full, with a handful of actors joining the recently cast Maggie Grace in the ‘vegetarian’ vampire clan. And Renesmee, the odd daughter of Edward and Bella, has been cast as well. Read More »
In February, I reported that Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg, the screenwriting/directing team credited with ruining the spoof movie genre (Disaster Movie, Meet the Spartans, Epic Movie, Scary Movie series, Date Movie) were filming a new movie in Shreveport, LA under the working title “LA Art Movie”. We were the first to reveal at the time that the movie was not a spoof on the indie film genre (a la Chris Gore’s 2005 movie My Big Fat Independent Movie) but actually something spoofing Twilight and the recent Vampire trend. 20th Century Fox has finally released a trailer for Vampires Suck, which is set to hit theaters on August 18th 2010.
Also, /Film reader Garn B informs me that the entire movie has already leaked onto the bit torrent websites. While I can’t verify this claim (I’m not going to illegally download a movie to find out), I have seen references to the film on multiple Torrent sites along with screencaptures which seem to prove its existence. You would think 20th Century Fox would have learned with X-Men Origins: Wolverine to take the extra security precautions to prevent a workprint leak online, but guess not. As always, we advise anyone reading this not to illegally download the movie (and not just because it looks horrible, and it isn’t likely worth watching — even for free).
You can watch the trailer legally, and for free, embedded after the jump. I’m still not quite sure why a vampire spoof is filled with jokes about Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, the television show the Jersey Shore, and Lady Gaga. But why question the motives or logic behind Seltzer and Friedberg now?

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Not even a day after word came out on the talented-but-unknown Andrew Garfield making minuscule earnings for the Spider-Man reboot, there’s a report of less-talented-but-better-known stars scoring a huge payday. This might not be so frustrating to read if the stars in question didn’t happen to be, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner, the leads of the Twilight series.
