R-Patz and new blood top sexy poll
The obsession with Twilight and all things vampire has put new blood into a list of the world’s sexiest men.
Robert Pattinson and his co-stars in the hit movies and the stars of TV series The Vampire Diaries have overtaken heart-throbs such as Johnny Depp, David Beckham and Brad Pitt in the Glamour.com poll.
R-Patz, 24, who plays vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight franchise, retains his place at the top of the list. He is joined in the top five by werewolf-playing co-star Taylor Lautner, The Vampire Diaries’ Ian Somerhalder and Twilight stars Xavier Samuel and Kellan Lutz – all new to the sexiest men list.
Kellan Lutz: We start fight training for Breaking Dawn in September
www.examiner.com: Kellan Lutz has been having a terrific (and busy!) year, but is looking forward to starting fight training for Breaking Dawn, the fourth installment in the Twilight saga.
“I believe we might start rehearsals in September – fight training – and then I think start production in November until March in Vancouver and Baton Rouge,” Lutz, 25, told OK! Aug. 10, 2010. “I love doing stunts, I love doing action movies.”
And he’s looking forward to filming in Vancouver so he can go snowboarding. “I love to snowboard, so it’s going to be good to be there in the winter,” he says. “I’m going to be in Vancouver in the wintertime when I can actually use Whistler big time. I’m a big snowboarding junkie.”
Lutz really enjoys the company of his Twilight co-stars, who are genuinely fun, down-to-earth people.
“We just have a really great group of actors who are real people who can just have fun,” says Lutz. “We have so many inside jokes now, and we don’t get sick of each other because these movies are only three to four months of shooting and then we’re off doing our own thing. And then we get excited to come back and it’s like a great family reunion.”
Twilight about to eclipse ‘New Moon!’
www.hollywood.com: Another box office milestone in the “Twilight” saga is about to howl at the moon as Summit Entertainment’s “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” prepares to suck the life out of its predecessor’s revenue generating superiority.
$296,623,634 is the total final domestic box office for “New Moon.” Through Tuesday, August 17 its successor, “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” has a running total of $296,268,343 – a difference of $355,291. Here is the breakdown: earlier this week “Eclipse” earned $214,712 on Monday, August 16 and $211,187 on Tuesday, August 17.
If we conservatively put Wednesday’s gross at $200,000 and another $200,000 on Thursday, the film will surpass its box office brethren this Thursday. This is no small feat considering that “Eclipse” is the third film in the series, opened in the much more competitive summer movie season (the first two films opened in late November) and had a first weekend gross ($64.8 million) that was smaller than “New Moon’s” first day!
And even though these two films share much of the same cinematic DNA, their box office trajectory could not be more different. Notably, “New Moon’s” theatrical run was super front loaded with a final domestic total that was just 2 times its opening weekend gross of $142,839,137 whereas “Eclipse’s” running total will be 4.5 times its $64.8 million weekend debut.
Ke$ha and Ashley Greene join the star-studded presenters list for the live show on September 12.
One is a teen pop phenomenon known for inducing Beatles-level hysteria in his fans, the other, a free-spirit Atlanta MC whose debut album suddenly shot to pop success. Now, Justin Bieber and B.o.B are set to hit the stage as performers at this year’s 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. Bieber and B.o.B join already announced performers Kanye West, Drake and Florence and the Machine.
Four-time nominee Ke$ha and “Twilight” star Ashley Greene will also be among the night’s presenters when the show goes live on September 12 from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. The night will mark the first VMA performances for both Bieber (who presented at last year’s ceremony) and B.o.B.
Well, would you look at that. What do you think of Rob being the world’s sexiest man? 😀
At first I was wondering what was Kellan talking about if there are no fights in Breaking Dawn, but then I remembered that he does get to fight and roll on the dirt a little. Emmett shows Bella how to fight! We finally get to see Kristen as Bella in full action mode. Oh, I can’t wait to see that. What did you think of the interview? What are you looking forward on seeing in Breaking Dawn?
What do you think of Ashley Greene being part of the VMA’s presenters? Will you be watching them? What other twilight cast member would you like to see?
