Bad news, everyone: There's only one more week until "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" hits theaters. While some of you might consider this a good thing, we here at MTV News are mourning the fact that we only have seven days left until the final "Twilight" movie comes out (well, final "Twilight" movie for the time being).
Fortunately, we've got you covered if you've got the "Twilight" blues like we do. We've planned the mother of all "Twilight" interview marathons for you this weekend, hosted by none other than our favorite "Twilight" interviewer, Josh Horowitz. He'll be manning a "Twilight" Takeover on November 10 and 11 on MTV that includes moments from his most recent "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" interview, going all the way back to the first few times we chatted with the cast back in 2008. Find out more about what will be included after the jump.
MTV News' Twi-Fight Saga continues with round five, in which 4 of Stephenie Meyer's vampires will do battle for the title of No. 1 "Twilight" character. Each round a "Twilight" expert will weigh in on who she thinks will take the entire tournament. Today, Laura Byrne Cristiano of Twilight Lexicon shares her pick for victor.
Well, it looks like what most people predicted, an Edward and Bella showdown, is what the final round has come down to. There were some surprises. Personally, I'm still getting over Jacob getting taken out by Quil! Seriously, how did that happen? Now it's down to choosing between our favorites, Edward and Bella.
As the big-screen iteration of Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight Saga" draws to an end, it seems the fanfic her series inspired is about to enjoy its own moment in the sun.
To wit, E L James' erotic novel, "Fifty Shades of Grey," and its sequels have already sold more than 60 million copies worldwide, with a film version in the works. And, just yesterday, The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that another Twific "The Office" (retitled "Beautiful Bastard") will be making its way to bookstore shelves soon. Indeed, it's a good time to be a fan-fiction writer. All of which got us wondering which other "Twilight" takeoffs are worthy of prime placement at Barnes & Noble. We reached out to several in-the-know fanfic enthusiasts to get their opinions.
Check out their reading lists after the jump, and sound off with your own suggestions in the comments!
If it's not a coven of bloodthirsty vamps, it's a roving gang of Port Angeles hoodlums, or—even more embarrassingly—her own two left feet. Yes, whatever the danger, it seems "Twilight" protagonist Bella Swan is a magnet for it. Hence, the teen's need for 24-hour protection to rival our Commander in Chief's Secret Service detail. And we've got all the proof of this you need in the video below.
In anticipation of the film franchise's long-awaited finale, "Breaking Dawn - Part 2," your fellow "Twilight" obsessives at MTV News took a gander at the saga's first four installments, making special note of all the moments Edward, Jacob and their ilk pledge their protection to Bella. And, boy, does it happen a lot!
See what we mean by clicking play on the video above. Save Bella—goodness knows she needs it...for now!
Leave it to Robert Pattinson to somehow work in the phrase "massage my butt cheek" into a recollection of all things "Twilight" during the junket for the film franchise's finale, "Breaking Dawn - Part 2."
You see, MTV News' Josh Horowitz wanted to spend a pleasant moment hearkening back to the very beginnings of the saga, and thusly asked Rob what he remembered from that first day of filming "Twilight."
"We were doing the fight scene at the end of the first one, and I tore my glute, well, almost tore it, basically in my second shot of the whole movie—of the whole series," the actor explained. "[They] had to get a physiotherapist to come in and massage my butt cheek for the rest of the day." (Hard job!)
We're not sure our "Twilight"-loving hearts can take this! After five fierce rounds of face-offs, only two vamps remain in MTV News' epic Twi-Fight Saga — and they're the last two we'd ever want to see battle! That's right; as you probably could have guessed, bloodsucking sweethearts Edward Cullen and Bella Swan are going head-to-head in the Championship Round. (Please give us a moment to compose ourselves...)
Okay! So, yeah. How does one choose between impossibly beautiful Edward and freshly fierce Bella? They're a package deal! They're inseparable! But, choose we must though. And so must you! Head on over to twilight.mtv.com to cast your ballot in the final round of The Twi-Fight Saga. Voting will continue through November 12, when the No. 1 "Twilight" character will finally be revealed!
The worlds of our favorite YA adaptations are colliding!
While promoting "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," Kristen Stewart dished to MTV News that not only have she and Jennifer Lawrence met, but they also totally hit it off. The ladies were seated together at a recent event, and we couldn't resist asking what two of the biggest names in Hollywood talked about.
"We didn't compare 'Twilight' to 'The Hunger Games,'" Kristen admitted with a laugh, though she added, "I had seen it."
The swelling success of E L James' best-selling erotic novel "Fifty Shades of Grey" has inspired more than just a renewed interest in antiquated equestrian implements—it seems publishers are now mining the world of "Twilight" fanfic for their next best-seller. The latest in line for prime placement at your local Barnes & Noble: "Beautiful Bastard," a reworked version of "The Office," originally written by Christina Hobbs in 2009 and taken offline a few months later (per The Hollywood Reporter).
"Beautiful Bastard"—a joint work by Christina and fellow fanfic writer Lauren Billings, to be published under the nom de plume Christina Lauren—centers around a young intern named Chloe Mills, who finds herself caught in a love-hate relationship with her perfectionist boss Bennett Ryan. And while there are clearly shades of James' phenomenon here, Bennett Ryan actually preceded Christian Grey online, though not in print.
Of all the lasts involved with "The Twilight Saga"'s concluding chapter, "Breaking Dawn - Part 2," this has got to be one of the most bittersweet. Here, for you, one last time, the cast sinks their teeth into our patent-pending "Yes/No Show" with Josh Horowitz.
And, as you'd expect, these vamps (and wolf!) are doing it with aplomb. Among the inquiries they faced: Could Bella kick Katniss Everdeen's ass? Do you truly understand how imprinting works? And, perhaps most importantly, is Stephenie Meyer a bit of a pervert? (Josh's words, not mine!)
Our walk down "Twilight" memory lane continues, this time with the woman who started it all: Stephenie Meyer. The authoress stopped by our recent MTV First: "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" during which Josh Horowitz asked her to recall the first time she saw Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart as her beloved Edward and Bella.
"The first time I saw these two in character was on camera, and that was really fun," Stephenie said. "I think the first scene I saw was in the forest with the 'How old are you?' [scene]. That was the first thing I saw. It was pretty amazing."
In fact, Stephenie (who served as a producer for the franchise's latter films) didn't even watch a screen test until the series' second installment.
