BREAKING DAWN MOVIE IS NOT GREENLIT

www.cinemablend.com: According to Gossip Cop there are currently no plans for a fourth Twilight movie. A Summit Entertainment rep tells them that the movie hasn’t been greenlit, nor have they begun to make any decisions about start date, director, or anything else.

Of course that doesn’t mean it won’t be greenlit, they may simply be waiting around to make certain the second film, The Twilight Saga: New Moon does as well as everyone thinks it will. With two movies still to go, there’s plenty of time left to start planning Breaking Dawn, so put down that pitchfork Twilight fans. It’ll get done, it just may take a little longer than you thought.

‘NEW MOON’ SOUNDTRACK GETS AN A FROM ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

www.ew.com: After the success of the first installment, music supervisor Alexandra Patsavas (Gossip Girl, Grey’s Anatomy) gets her pick of the alt litter here, with each contributing original, previously unreleased material: From the opening chords of Death Cab for Cutie’s dusky guitar rapture ”Meet Me on the Equinox” to the spooky robot-ennui of Thom Yorke’s ”Hearing Damage” 
 and Grizzly Bear’s gorgeous folk-pop pastoral ”Slow Life,” New Moon rarely falters. A peacocking remix of Muse’s shamelessly operatic ”I Belong to You” becomes a Bowie-esque glam-rock stomper. In its wake, Bon Iver and St. Vincent quietly unfurl ”Rosyln,” a duet of hushed, almost church-like beauty.

Think of New Moon as a sort of survey course in new-now-next rock: a mixtape with teeth. A

LYKKE LI’S ‘NEW MOON’ SONG MIXES LOVE, DEATH AND PATTINSON

www.mtv.com: When Lykke Li was presented with the opportunity to write a song for the “New Moon” soundtrack, she did what any bubbling-beneath-the-surface artist would’ve done: She thought about it for a really long time.

“Everyone kept asking me if I wanted to do it, how [the song] was going, when would I have it finished, and I was like, ‘Eh, I don’t know, maybe I’ll do it, maybe I won’t,’ ” she laughed. “I mean, I had heard of the ‘Twilight’ phenomenon, but I didn’t read the books or watch the first movie or anything. I mean, I’m Swedish.

“I stayed [in Los Angeles] and watched the movie, when it only had green screen on it. I had this hook in my mind, even before I saw the movie, and then I was watching it, and I was like, ‘That’s the hook!’ ” she said. “So it was very much like a discovery, inside myself and musically. I had this song growing inside of me that I had to get out, and [the film] was the trigger. Because I really connected with Bella and Edward’s tortured love story.”

So Li sat down at her piano and wrote “Possibility,” a very maudlin song about love and pain and, ultimately, death. Lots of death. Like we said, she doesn’t operate like most of her pop contemporaries.
