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.

Twilight tent city

Hundreds of Twilight fans began lining up Monday outside the Nokia Plaza in downtown Los Angeles, as the premiere of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is set to take place on Thursday night. By Tuesday, the area outside of Nokia Plaza had been turned into a tent city by the 500 fans camping out, each hoping to catch a glimpse of Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and the rest of the Twilight cast.

Breaking Dawn fan created logo

(Note: Spoilers follow.) For those of us who couldn’t give a toss about Twilight, there has still been some reason to anticipate one of the two halves of Breaking Dawn, the adaptation of the final book in the series. Specifically, there’s a fairly crazy scene where Bella (Kristen Stewart) gives birth to her half-vampire baby. Suffice to say that rendering the scene as it takes place on the page would finally put the series into actual horror mode, which has led many to wonder how it will be filmed at all for a PG-13 film. (Revisit Devin Faraci’s rundown of the book’s insanity at CHUD if this is all new to you.)

Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg has the easiest answer: don’t shoot it at all.

Speaking to the LA Times, she said, “On the fan site, on Facebook, all the comments are “It has to be R rated! You have to show the childbirth! Gore and guts and sex!” For me it’s actually more interesting to not see it. You know, you can do childbirth without seeing childbirth … it doesn’t mean it’s any less evocative of an experience.” Which is another way of saying “I’ll save you ten bucks.”

Twilight Moms

It’s not easy going through life with an unremarkable name like “Dave Chen.” I know three Dave Chens personally, one of whom works in the same office as me, making e-mail mix-ups a frequent occurrence.

But despite reservations about my own name, I can take comfort in the fact that I wasn’t named after a Twilight character. Recently released data from the Social Security Administration (via The New York Post) indicates that the number of children named after Twilight characters might be on the rise.
