2009 Year Of The Werewolf?


There's a very interesting article in USA Today which mentions Twilight and New Moon. Director Chris Weitz made a great comment about Taylor being able to " kill me with his left pinky. But he is too nice to do that. There is something compelling and sexy about him. He captures the spirit of Jacob."

As many of you know, several movies this year will be centered around werewolves. Just yesterday "Underworld: Rise of the Lycans" opened, containing both werewolves and vampires. If you are a fan of the first two Underworld movies, this is a must see.

One thing I must mention about the article that irks me however, is that the writer said that Edward ran away to Italy to keep Bella out of danger... Did the author read the same "New Moon" we did?

All in all it's a good read, even though I still would rather be a vampire than a werewolf. LOL

Could This Be Patty?


There has been a reported Patty sighting....this photo surfaced during the week with a report that it was Robert Pattinson's dog Patty. We can't verify that this is actually Patty but it could be. Patty is Rob's beloved dog that he has mentioned several times in interviews including this 17 Magazine clip where he wishes Patty "Happy Valentine's Day":



And in this MyFox Philly interview he says Patty is "the only lady friend in his life" & she has a "Beyonce walk". Watch for it around the 3:51 mark.



Patty is one LUCKY lady!

Which America Auditioned For New Moon?

Kellan Lutz: Deep Winter DVD Review



***STAY TUNED FOR DETAILS ABOUT HOW YOU CAN WIN A DEEP WINTER DVD!!!!

Kellan's movie Deep Winter comes out on DVD this Tuesday, the 27th. Here's a review I found at DVD Room Reviews:

"Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is delivering a DVD release on January 27th that is sure to excite extreme winter sports enthusiasts. Deep Winter, directed by Mikey Hilb, stars Eric Lively (TVs 24) and Kellen Lutz (Twilight, TVs 90210) as boyhood friends who reunite for a trip to Alaska to film a movie with a death-defying ride down a dangerous mountain that no one has ever skied down and lived.

Tyler Crowe is a ski maverick and a member of the US Downhill team before his coach kicks him off the team for his rebellious spirit. Tyler returns home in time to reconnect with best childhood friend, Mark Rider, a professional snowboarder, who is set to make the trip to Alaska for a daring mountain adventure and a chance to star in an action sports movie being made by an overzealous producer.

The trip turns out to be extremely treacherous for the friends, and that does not even account for what they find on the mountain slopes. Before leaving for the trip, Tyler gets together with Mark's sister, Elisa (Peyton List), which does not go over well. The tension of the winter weather and competition over the pending ski ride adds to the stress for the pair.

Deep Winter is an intense story made with the X-sports fan in mind. There are plenty of dangerous ski and snowboarding shots throughout. The story offers some romance, a test of friendship, tribulation, and courage. A nice story with more action than plot depth. The nice cast also includes Michael Madsen, Luke Goss and Robert Carradine. The film was shot on location in Utah, Colorado, and Alaska."

Real Or Rumor: Dakota Fanning As Jane?


Here's the latest New Moon rumor.... According to Marc Malkin of E! Online Dakota Fanning is in talks to play Jane:

"I can exclusively report that the 14-year-old child star-she turns 15 on Feb. 23-is in talks to play Jane opposite Robert Pattinson & Co. in New Moon, the upcoming sequel to box office megahit Twilight.

"There were no auditions," a source reveals. "They just offered it to her outright, and now they're in negotiations. They've been going back and forth.'"

Think You Are Friends with Rob Pattinson on Facebook?

** This is a great article for people that are new to networking sites like Facebook and My Space. Don't be fooled.

I've been seeing some pretty obvious poseurs on Facebook pretending to be celebrities. There's a particularly bad one claiming to be Robert Pattinson, hitting on the girls who add him. Do you know of any place the fans can go to check if a Facebook page is legit?
—Shonna

A Facebook page owned by a "Rob T Pattz" who hits on every chick who passes through, and that supposedly represents one of the most hotly desired actors on earth? And you thought it might be fake? Gee, what gave it away?

As you've already deduced, I can guarantee, 200 percent, that the page is fake. In fact, I can guarantee that every single Rob Pattinson profile is also a fake.

How? Well...

...because I called Pattinson's manager today, and the person who picked up the phone told me that the actor—who, to be fair, possesses many other impressive communication tools, including hair that can pick up radio waves from Neptune—is not on Facebook. At all.

But what about other sites? How to know whether this innocuous-looking profile for this here Project Runway contestant is legit? (It is.) Well, there's no one place you can go to confirm that, but there are telltale signs of fakedom.

For our source and ways to know a Facebook is fake go here.

Hot Topic Is On A Hot Streak Thanks To Twilighters

Hot Topic was one of only a few appearal retailers, to have a very sucussful 4th quarter thanks to Twilighters:

Hot Topic's success is a comeback story. After four years of reporting declines in same-store sales, the company enjoyed booming business at the end of 2008.

Hot Topic was one of a handful of retailers offering a wide variety of "Twilight" merchandise. Based on a best-selling book series, the teen vampire flick unseated the highly anticipated James Bond movie "Quantum of Silence" from its No. 1 perch at the American box office during its Nov. 21 opening weekend.

"Twilight" earned $70.6 million during that weekend and kicked Hot Topic out of a 4-year-old malaise. After more than 17 quarters of negative same-store sales, Hot Topic posted an increase in same-store sales of 8.3 percent in October compared with the same time in the previous year. The hot streak kept rolling on, with same-store sales increasing 6.5 percent in November and 4.3 percent in December.

FORKS, Wash. - Somebody has pilfered the gas cap off the town's fictional heroine's pickup.

Forks Chamber of Commerce officials think it was an overly zealous fan who pinched the chrome gas cap off Bella's pickup a few weeks ago, said Mike Gurling, Forks Visitor Center office manager.
