Twilight the movie generated an estimated $70.5 million in North American box-office receipts during its opening weekend! The big success of ''Twilight'' also helps ensure Summit Entertainment's position in Hollywood. ''Twilight'' is the new studio's sixth release and only cost $37 million.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports:
Sources say stars Robert Pattinson, 22, and Kristin Stewart, 18, will get huge salary boosts from the $2 million each earned for "Twilight" -- reportedly $10 million more, per film, plus a nice percentage of the future movies' box-office take.

Online Discussion of Vampire Diaries: The Fury

Wow! You BBC members are tearing through The Vampire Diaries so fast I can hardly keep up with you! I think that shows a positive response to the books. So, you like them, huh?

Let's discuss The Fury. Of all the books, I just felt that this one had the most action. It was the one that kept me up at night, reading page after page, unable to find a place to stop so I could sleep!

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!!! For those of you who haven't read The Fury yet, I've disguised the following questions.
For those of you who have read it, all you have to do is highlight the lines below to see the questions...
  • What did you think about what Elena did when she woke up?
  • Will Stefan forgive her?
  • Did you think that she would ever become involved with Damon? How big of a surprise was that?
  • What were your feelings about Tyler before you read this part of the book?
  • What are your feelings now about him?
  • Can you believe that Elena DIED?!?!?!

Let's start talking, people! This series is gettin' hot!
Comments, PLEASE!

A Vampire Diaries 5!

Good news. According to author L.J. Smith, there will be a Vampire Diaries 5! On her website, L.J. Smith, the author gives the following hints about the book, yet to be published:

"Yep, here he is, a whole book devoted to bad boy Damon. There is plenty, however, about Elena and her new powers to startle readers. The most important of her permanent changes is that she now has blood that is like rocket fuel compared to the unleaded gasoline that runs through everyone else’s veins. This blood gives Stefan unprecedented Powers, but he’s stuck with the same old problem; love Elena as she wishes and turn her into a vampire, or leave her?
Stefan’s answer, this time, is to leave her briefly, in the hands of his brother Damon while he goes to track down a rumor that vampires can leave their curse behind. Bad idea. Damon is possessed by a powerful spirit from halfway around the globe, and it decides that Elena looks awfully enjoyable. Even when brought back to his ordinary self, Damon is difficult, and it isn’t until Elena and Damon go looking for Stefan that she gets a look at what’s under Damon’s shell. This is the epic Vampire Diaries fans have been waiting for; I hope you’ll enjoy it. "

Oh, we will, Ms. Smith, we will! We can't wait!

Twilight Cool Things Countdown: 6 More days...

Whoops! I missed Friday! Here's Friday's tidbit. :-) DN
Summit Entertainment gets rights to all four books!
The Hollywood Reporter announced today that Summit has acquired the rights to the next three books in Meyer’s series, “New Moon,” “Eclipse” and “Breaking Dawn.” Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg, who adapted “Twilight,” will pen the scripts for “New Moon” and “Eclipse,” while a writer has yet to be named for “Breaking Dawn.”

It looks like we have a new series of movies to look forward to!!! Let's just hope that Robert Pattinson and Kristin Stewart are as committed to the project as Summit Entertainment is!

Twilight Cool Things Countdown: 7 More days...

Midnight Sun Movie Scene!
MTV News Reports that “Twilight” Director Catherine Hardwicke has revealed exclusively to MTV News that the forthcoming “Twilight” DVD will feature a deleted scene from none other than “Midnight Sun,” the book which tells the story from Edward’s perspective that author Stephenie Meyer abandoned when it was prematurely leaked online. Awesome! It's a small victory, but we still want Midnight Sun to be published, Stephenie!

Twilight in the White House?
In other news, according to the latest issue of US Weekly, Stephenie Meyer has a couple fans who will be moving into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in a couple months. The magazine reports that President-Elect Barack Obama and his ten-year-old daughter Malia often bond over addictive book series, “They read all the Harry Potter books together and have moved on to the Twilight series.”

Hmmm…I wonder? Is he Team Edward or Team Jacob?
