::Team New Moon:: Iron Man 2 Falls Far Short of our Sparkly Record.

Iron suit or not, Jon Favreau’s Iron Man 2, starring Robert Downey Jr and Gwyneth Paltrow, wasn’t strong enough to surpass the first day opening of, gasp, a “chick flick”: Chris Weitz’s The Twilight Saga: New Moon. Robert Pattinson’s lovestruck vampire and Kristen Stewart’s troubled human easily kicked iron ass. How ironic (awful pun intended), considering that Hollywood studios make movies geared to 12-year-old boys and tend to relegate women to the sides, both in front and behind the camera.

According to Box Office Mojo, Iron Man 2’s $52.4m opening, which includes approximately $7.5m it earned at Thursday midnight screenings, is no. 7 on the all-time list for first-day box-office grosses.

The Twilight Saga: New Moon is no. 1 with $72.7m, followed by Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight (the record-holder for a three-day weekend, with $158m), Michael Bay’s Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man 3, Daniel Radcliffe’s Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and Johnny Depp’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.

The original Iron Man opened with $35.2m in 2008.

Figures on the Box Office Mojo chart haven’t been adjusted for inflation, of course, though the difference wouldn’t have been too glaring since most of the movies found on their list are mid-to-late 2000s releases. Exception to this rule: movies that made most (or even a good chunk) of their money at 3D/IMAX venues, e.g., The Dark Knight, Avatar, Alice in Wonderland.

::Team Twilight:: Fan Fiction Friday is back!

Gather round for a group hug because we have missed you so much! Real life has been a thorn in our sides but it seems to be returning to what we deem to be normal. Okay, so not normal, but how about do-able?

I have links to a site that has a compiled a complete list of relocated and pulled stories for those of you trying to find your missing favorites. So, get a cocktail (for those over 21 of course!), get comfy and enjoy.

Fan Fic acronyms to know: AU=Alternate Universe, AH=All Human, OOC=Out of Character, Canon=As Stephenie Meyer wrote it, M=Rated Mature. Stories are ranked from 1-5 Sparkles for writing skill, story and plot and overall story quality as it relates to the Twilight Universe.

The following reviews are from Cullen Sister:

Purgatory: A Love Story by americnxidiot

Rated: M
Type: Fantasy/Romance---AH(sort of?)/AU---Canon Couples
POV: Bella
Status: Complete (25 chapters)
Shack Rating: * * * * *(5 sparkles!)

Purgatory:A Love Story

On December 23, forty people boarded the Greyhound bus from Seattle to Port Angeles. Six would never arrive. A story of love, grief, & learning to live again once your heart stops beating. A Twilight/Wristcutters crossover.


Mr. Horrible
by algonquinrt

Rated: M
Type: Humor/Romance---AH/AU---Canon Couples

Mr. Horrible

They meet at a gallery, from two different worlds. Watch as they learn... oh, who am I kidding here? They meet. They are opposites. They attract. Rated M for serious potty mouth and scenes of the citrus variety. "The Gigli of FFn".


The following reviews are from ForksPixie:

An Imperfect Love by mistyhaze420

After Edward leaves Bella & Alice leaves Jasper, their worlds collide. They have no one to turn to but each other for comfort and become good friends...but maybe more. But is it enough to mean forever?


I Alone by monroe5

Rated: M
Type: Angst/Romance/Supernatural---AU---Non-Canon Couples
POV: Bella and Jasper
Status: Complete (37 chapters)
Shack Rating: * * * * *(5 sparkles!)

I Alone

He was considered the weak link. She was the frail human. Neither quite fitting into the Cullen family. So when they are left behind what will happen?


Here are some links to the site "The Twilight Awards". They have compiled a few lists to help the fandom cope.

~The first list is called FAN FICTION FOR DUMMIES. It might help you break down those terms just a little bit more if you need help with that. Goodness knows I did when I started out!

Fan Fiction For Dummies

~The second list is for all the fan fictions that have been relocated. It is very current.

Relocated from FFn

~The third list is for all the stories that have been pulled. The length of this list is heart breaking.

Pulled from FFn

For those of you who want to petition for the above stories this first.

Why some stories are being pulled.


That's it for this week! Only 53 days till Eclipse. Come on press junket!!!!!!

Your Princess of Perv,
Cullen Sister

::Team Eclipse:: Todays Oprah audience were the first to see Eclipse.

The cries of jealousy can already be heard around the web. The audience at today's taping of Oprah's May 13 show got to see The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. But you don't have to wait a week to find out what they thought. The fan-packed audience is already postings Twitter reviews, compiled by Moviefone.

Here's a sampling of what they've said:

@JustSoJazzyDiva OMFG @Twilight Saga #Eclipse was so freaking good!!! Blew Twilight & New Moon out the water!!! It was AMAZING!! YES!!! The leg hitch was in the movie!!! Suuuch a hott scene!!!

@MochaChick8705 OMG!!! #Eclipse was so amazing!! Can't wait to go to the Oprah show tomorrow to see Rob, Kristen, Taylor, and Dakota!! Look for my tweets!!

@Vivian_Ortiz Eclipse was amazing! Can't wait to see the final version! Best Movie Yet.

The final cut of the movie will get its world premiere screening at next month's Los Angeles Film Festival, announced the L.A. Times today. Festival director Rebecca Yeldham defended the somewhat mainstream decision.

If we program a movie like Twilight that draws audiences that might not otherwise attend film festivals, hopefully we'll expose them to other cinematic experiences that we think are inspiring.

Only festival goers who purchase top-level passes ($500 to $1,000) will get into the June 24 showing. What do you think, Twilighters? Is the L.A. Film Festival the right venue for the first Eclipse screening? And don't worry, Summit confirmed that this is not the official premiere, which will still be taking place in Los Angeles next month.


::Team Eclipse:: Burger King to Kick Off "Time to Choose" Promos June 21st.

After today’s taping of Oprah – which featured Rob, Kristen, Taylor, and Dakota (it’ll be airing May 13th) – Burger King employees were on hand to give out new Eclipse posters.

The poster reads, “The time to choose is coming. Play the game only at BK – June 21st, 2010″ and features Edward, Bella, and Jacob.

::Team Jasper:: 100 Monkeys Make Rolling Stone!

Bamboozle 2010's Five Breakout Bands to Watch

100 Monkeys: This eccentric Cali act have a built-in buzz magnet — bandmember Jackson Rathbone, also known as one of Twilight's famous vampires. Their spazzy, energetic Saturday set blended tribal sounds with vocals recalling Jim Morrison's baritone croon. The "can-this-be-real?" factor ran high thanks to song titles like "The Monkey Song," lyrics like "free, free, free the beast" and five guys in bandanas jumping around and playing hand drums, trumpet and flute. The band's latest release, Grape, is out now.

::Team Breaking Dawn:: It's OFFICIAL! November 18, 2011 Movie Release

“ A Summit Entertainment spokesperson has confirmed to HitFix that “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn” will open nationwide on Nov. 18, 2011. It’s still officially unknown if “Dawn” will be broken up into one or, as rumored, two films. Stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are all expected to return.
Directed by Oscar-winner Bill Condon, the fourth book in Stephenie Meyer’s popular series chronicles Bella’s most advanced initiation into the vampire world to date, but is also seen by many as the most difficult to adapt of all the best-selling novels. Melissa Rosenberg, who adapted the first two novels, would continue in that role for “Dawn.”

The third movie in the series, “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” will debut in theaters on June 30 nationwide and in IMAX.”
