Pattinson Wins Big, Harry Potter Shut Out at Teen Choice Awards

By Hanako M. Ricks
HollywoodNews.com: Vampires completed dominated the 2010 Teen Choice Awards, which were held in Los Angeles on August 8. Twilight and “The Vampire Diaries” both came up with huge wins, especially for current Twilight (and former Harry Potter star) Robert Pattinson, who walked away with two awards – for Choice Summer Movie Star and Choice Movie Star: Drama – for his role in the film Remember Me. He also won two awards with his co-star Kristen Stewart, and the Twilight movies New Moon and Eclipse picked up one award each. Twilight co-stars Taylor Lautner, Kellan Lutz, Ashley Green, and Rachelle Lefevre all picked up awards as well.
The other hot vamp series, the CW’s hit show “The Vampire Diaries”, also won big, collecting seven of the award surfboards.
Unfortunately for Harry Potter fans, the popular franchise did not pick up any of the awards it was nominated for. It has been speculated that as the majority of the Harry Potter fanbase are now out of their teens, having grown up with the series, most of the would-be voters for the franchise probably did not meet the age limit that was required of voters on the site.
The 2010 Teen Choice Awards will be aired August 9 at 8 pm on FOX.

‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’ is an improvement-by-default

By Scott Mendelson
HollywoodNews.com: I’m probably one of six people on the planet who preferred Spider-Man 3 to Spider-Man 2. The second Spider-Man picture is arguably the better film. It’s better written, better acted, and contains moments of real pathos and drama (Aunt May’s birthday present to Peter, Peter confessing his role in Uncle Ben’s death, the train action-scene, Peter’s conversations with Doctor Octavius). Yet it is derailed by the fact that Peter Parker spends the entire movie in a swirl of self-pity, endlessly moping for the girl he loves, while forgetting the fact that he dumped her first at the conclusion of the first film (nevermind that most of his other problems have pretty obvious solutions – move in with Aunt May and take your Spider-Man photos to other newspapers for money, etc). The third film, by virtue of having three hundred subplots, focuses less on the annoying Peter Parker/Mary Jane romantic plot, and is less forehead-slappingly obnoxious despite the kitchen-sink plotting. So while the Twilight Saga: Eclipse is not as focused and disciplined as Twilight Saga: New Moon, I did enjoy it a bit more due to the plentiful distractions from the Bella/Edward/Jacob arc. It’s not nearly as fun and light-on-its feet as the first Twilight picture, but it’s a case of improvement-by-default.
A token amount of plot – Edward and Bella are back together, much to the chagrin of Bella’s father (the again-delightful Billy Burke) and Jacob (the native-American/werewolf who helped her recover from being dumped by Edward in the last film). As Bella decides whether or not to become a vampire in order to be with Edward forever, an old threat rears her head. In order to avenge the death of her mate at the hands of the Cullen clan back in Twilight, Victoria (Byrce Dallas Howard replacing Rachelle Lefevre) is breeding an army of ‘newborn’ vampires (vampires are most powerful and out of control during their initial months after being turned) to kill Bella, wipe out the Cullen clan, and/or rampage their way into Forks, Washington. With a threat this severe, the Cullen clan will be forced to align themselves with the local Quileute tribe, who of course are also werewolves.
Obviously, there is a little bit more going on here than just a non-stop pity party for Bella. And, ironically, the character work ends up mirroring the Peter Parker progression as well. Mirroring Peter’s struggle to win [...]

“New Moon”‘s Edi Gathegi’s New Project: “50/50”

By Tracy Rosenfield
Hollywoodnews.com: Peter Facinelli is known for being an active Twitterer and Kellan Lutz just joined to talk charity, but Edi Gathegi (“Laurent” in “Twilight” and “New Moon”) is also on the Twitter bandwagon. Though he isn’t an excessive tweeter, he’ll tweet for several days or weeks in a row, disappear for a few weeks and then hop right back on.
In a recent interview withTwilight Lexicon, Edi talked about who he was closest with on the “Twilight” and “New Moon” sets.  He immediately mentioned Rachelle Lefevre (“Victoria” in “Twilight” and “New Moon”) because they have a lot in common and had the most scenes together in the “Twilight” films.  He also mentioned that he stays in touch with a lot of the cast.  One look at his tweets and you can easily see this is the case – Jamie Bower, Christian Serratos, Justin Chon, etc.  He also mentioned that he has the hardest time seeing Peter Facinelli, though they regularly try to make plans.
During the interview, Edi mentioned a new project he has plans to work on called “50/50” filming in the UK.  He described the film as “True Romance” meets “Snatch”.  Now that sounds like an adventure!  But, does that mean we won’t be able to understand the accents?!?  We’ll see.  Edi said “…I get to play this British gangster and he’s the wild card.  He’s dangerous and funny.  It’s cockney and I have a deal with the director: if I can’t sound completely authentic, then were’ just going to go Jamaican or something.”
We’re betting Edi can pull it off.  Follow Edi on Twitter @iamedigathegi to see if he talks more about his upcoming project.
Thanks to Twilight Lexicon for the great interview!
Authors Note: The title “50/50″ may be written differently, as this was a verbal interview.

The “Twilight” cast gives back

By Tracy Rosenfield
HollywoodNews.com: The “Twilight” cast is a well-known (and large!) group of actors.  But in their “off” time, many of them use their celebrity to support charitable causes and help the greater good.  Below are some of the actors and the charitable causes they support.  If you know of any other charities these actors support, please leave a note in the comments and I will add it to the already large list!
Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Anna Kendrick, Taylor Lautner Hope for Haiti
As you may have seen, Robert Pattison took time out from filming in London to speak to a world-wide audience during George Clooney’s “Hope for Haiti” telethon on January 22nd.
Kristen Stewart, unable to participate in the telethon due to her participation in Sundance, later scheduled a dinner at La Vida with proceeds going to the same organization.
Anna Kendrick and Taylor Lautner appeared on the “Hope for Haiti” telethon, answering phone calls to take donations for the event.
Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner: Attended a “New Moon” benefit screening in Knoxville, TN, where the nearly $400,000 raised went to charities such as East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, Second Harvest, Boy Scouts of the Smokies, Imagination Library, and the American Heart Association.
Robert Pattinson: Aside from Hope for Haiti, Robert Pattinson has also raised money for amfAR cinema against AIDS by auctioning off his kisses!  He also signed a guitar which went up for auction and all proceeds went to The Midnight Mission.  Finally, Rob has donated some of his film costumes to be auctioned off, with all proceeds benefiting Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF)
Most recently, Rob and “Water for Elephants” announced that based on Rob’s March 2010 statement that his charity of choice is the World Wildlife Federation (WWF), WaterForElephantsFilm.com will be supporting Robert Pattinson’s philanthropy by spreading the word via their website and encouraging readers to donate to WWF.
Kristen Stewart:  In addition to Hope for Haiti, Kristen Stewart participated in a Diabetes Walk event in late 2009.  She also participated in Sam Bradley’s “Gewa” charity concert which raised money for people in Tibet.  Kristen recently signed speakers, with proceeds benefiting Clothes off Our Backs.  There’s still 14 days left on this auction, so place your bids now!
Peter Facinelli:  PFach, as his fans call him, is one of the most active “Twilight” actors in the charity community.  He is an avid supporter of Alex’s Lemonade Stand, benefiting childhood cancer research.  Peter also [...]

The bad vamps of “Twilight”: where are they now?

By Kim Palacios
HollywoodNews.com: It’s been nearly two years since the release of “Twilight”, and, as happens in most fantasy films, there have been some character casualties. Here is a listing of projects the bad vamps from “Twilight” have been engaged with since the film:
Cam Gigandet. Since his role as James in “Twilight”, Gigandet has appeared in a series of mind-bending films ranging in genre from horror, to sci-fi, to sci-fi meets romantic drama. The most widely publicized of was the horror flick “The Unborn” (2009), in which he plays the boyfriend of a woman with an unborn twin who has (literally) come back to haunt her. “Pandorum”(2009) finds Gigandet as a one of a team of futuristic astronauts who awaken on a deserted spaceship to find an evil force aboard. In “Five Star Day” (2010 – the most easygoing of his recent releases) he stars a zodiac skeptic on a journey to learn whether three others born on his birthday in the same hospital had the shared experience of an epically cursed day. According to IMDB, Gigandet has eight more films in production for the remainder of 2010 and 2011.
Rachelle Lefevre. Though Victoria’s character is still alive at this point in the Twilight Saga movies, Rachelle Lefevre’s era playing the part is over. Unlike Gigandet, who seems to have focused solely on film, Lefvere has done projects for both film and television. On the film side, she plays prostitute Laura in “The Pool Boy” (2009), a comedy about a house-sitting teenager who turns the mansion he is watching into a brothel. In 2010 she will appear in a political thriller alongside Kevin Spacey and Kelly Preston in “Casino Jack”. She also starred in the made for television mystery, “Do You Know Me”, about a woman who sees a young picture of herself on a missing children milk carton ad. She has appeared as a guest on “Better off Ted” and is listed as appearing on the new television drama “The Deep End”. Additional projects (e.g., “Barney’s Version”, “The Caller” remain in post-production).
Edi Gathegi. Best-known for stints on popular television dramas such as “House, M.D.” and “CSI”, in the two years since filming “Twilight”, Gathegi seems to be focusing more on film. In “This is Not a Movie”(2009), [...]

Twilight cast members chat with fans about “Eclipse”

By Kim Palacios
In honor of the world premiere of the latest trailer for “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”, three cast members joined emcees tonight to answer questions submitted by fans. On deck were Nikki Reed (Rosalie Hale), Bryce Dallas Howard (replacing Rachelle Lefevre for the role of bad vamp Victoria), and Julia Jones (Leah Clearwater).
When asked what made “Eclipse” different from “Twilight” and “New Moon”, all participants agreed that the difference in “Eclipse” is the action. Not just in the technical sense, the events in “Eclipse” hold greater significance.
Said Bryce Dallas Howard, speaking of Bella, “the consequences of the choices she makes are much higher in the film.” Alluding to “New Moon”, in which the love triangle among she, Edward, and Jacob only had the power to impact the three of them, she contrasts “Eclipse” in which, says Howard, “…it’s not just her. The Stakes become enormously high. It’s New moon but a lot more.”
The actors also talked about what it was like to work with David Slade, who reportedly devoted an enormous amount of time with each actor on strategies for their characters. Said Nikki Reid, “We all felt like we got enough of him.”
The final question of the day asked the stars their favorite memories of working on the set of “Eclipse”. Bryce Dallas Howard spoke of the camaraderie among the cast and crew. “I haven’t had an experience on a film where you really get to know a group of people as I did on this film. I have so much respect for everyone who’s involved with them because they’ve stayed really grounded, and their friendships have stayed really true…it’s a group of artists who are really serious about what’s being created.”
