While many fans were on the fence about the floral print shirt Robert Pattinson wore to his first official Breaking Dawn – Part 2 appearance in Sydney on Monday, we’re pretty sure there’s no debate about what Kristen Stewart wore in Tokyo. The black and white Louis Vuitton playsuit (we love that word, btw) was both stylish and fun, showing off her assets while also rather reminding us of the chess board on the cover Breaking Dawn. We kind of want it, but in order to pull it off, we also require a few other things of Kristen’s…
1. Flawless makeup — sweeping cat-eyes, pale lips and a youthful shine — to go with those soulful green eyes.
Remember when all we could talk about for Breaking Dawn – Part 1 was that headboard-cracking wedding night? Much to our relief, the honeymoon isn’t over for Edward and Bella in Part 2, even though Stephenie Meyer let the vamps have their privacy in the book. Speaking to Australian radio’s Kyle and Jackie O Show, Robert Pattinson said this new sex scene was one of the most challenging to shoot in the whole series.
“It’s supposed to be about, like, the greatest vampire sex you’ve ever had,” Rob said of the “ridiculous” scene. “So a lot of it was just closeups on me and Kristen’s faces, but there was no one else there. So it’s literally like, try and give a face of ecstasy. … Guys’ faces I don’t think are really designed to do that.” We dare to disagree. Just look at this example he gave:
It’s the beginning of the end, guys. We’re having a really hard time believing this is finally here — weren’t we just standing in line at the midnight release party of Breaking Dawn? But yeah, this morning, on the other side of the world, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart kicked off the big promotional tour for the The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 on the Eastern Hemisphere. Kristen just arrived in Tokyo’s Narita Airport, looking way better than anyone should after a trans-Pacific flight, and immediately smiled for the cameras and signed autographs for fans. Rob, meanwhile, did an unbelievably sexy photo shoot in Sydney before hitting the red carpet of a fan event. Of course, that’s where he made plenty of silly faces for his adoring public. We’re sure you can come up with better captions for them than our own, so share them with us in the comments!

I was excited to write up my reactions to the just released Breaking Dawn Part 2 soundtrack listing, because I truly love the previous soundtracks from the franchise and think Music Supervisor Alex Patsavas always does a killer job cultivating tracks that suit each film’s mood. However, I know that my deep entrenchment in the Twilight fandom might make my opinion a little biased. Yes, I drink out of a giant Twilight cup and can identify every pair of Kristen Stewart‘s sneakers out of a shoe lineup, so my thoughts are certainly tainted by years of Twi-obsession. So take these silly, quick comments with a couple grains of salt, okay? They’re my unedited, unresearched, immediate reactions. Besides, we all know this soundtrack could be made up solely of songs by The Wiggles and I’d still love it.
1. Where I Come From — Passion Pit
- I thought their last album was a dud, but I like these guys and imagine this song will be fun for a shot of a lighthearted giggle shared between Edward and Bella or a wide-shot of the Volvo cruising along those curvaceous roads that apparently curl through Forks like a cement river.
2. Bittersweet — Ellie Goulding
- Her voice is wonderful and haunting, but I’m a bit less enthused knowing it’s produced by her boyfriend, Skrillex. I expect some serious “womp, womp, wub, dub” happening in the middle, and can really only imagine a ridiculous wolf pack transformation taking place over dubstep. Just feels so jort-y, ya know?
After a six-part rollout on all the official Twilight Facebook pages, Summit released the final theatrical one-sheet poster for Breaking Dawn – Part 2 this morning, and man, does it get our blood pumping. Sure, we liked all the intimate family scenes and gathering of special vamps from far and wide that the previous still gave us. But this one, like the sneak peek of the movie we saw during the VMAs, is all about the action. We always kind of dug the way the second half of Stephenie Meyer’s book turns into a sort of X-Men battle, in which it’s all about whose superpowers are superior — even though we know the victory will ultimately belong to those whose motivations are pure and right, rather than petty and vindictive. OK, that sounds cheesy when we say it that way, but it totally works in the book. We are feeling fierce just looking at Edward, Bella and Jacob. Are you?
The reports that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have reunited and are possibly even living together again in L.A. have made our shipper hearts soar, and now we might even get to see their renewed love first-hand once more (or, at least second-hand). While they’ve managed to keep their reunion away from prying paparazzi eyes, their professional relationship may be on full display beginning this month, according to the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 promotional schedule obtained by Deadline yesterday. Even when the fallout from the Rupert Sanders pics had many fearing a breakup, Summit promised that the final promo tour of the saga would not be compromised, so this should not come as a surprise. Rather, it’s a pleasant confirmation.
The times we’re pretty sure Rob and Kristen will appear together, per Deadline’s schedule are: October 28-November 1, when most of the cast participates in the press junket in Los Angeles; and the world premiere in L.A. on November 12. There’s no specific cast attached to U.S. events on October 11 and 21, and press/TV appearances November 4-11, so those might be good Robsten moments, too. And then we don’t know which cities will feature which stars from November 14-16, when the schedule just says “Premiere Tour in London, Madrid, and Berlin featuring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Bill Condon and Wyck Godfrey.”
Some of us love to pore over every fall movie preview we can get our hands on, reading reviews from Cannes and Toronto, marking our calendars with premiere dates and pre-ordering our tix on Fandango as soon as we can. For others, that sounds way too much like homework. That’s why we made this quick little guide to the top 10 flicks we’re dying to see, with the kind of blurb that won’t tax your short attention spans. And sure, we’re leaving out a whole bunch of Oscar contenders, guilty pleasures and interesting films we’ll eventually watch, but this is a list based on fandom, gut instinct and, yeah, intense crushes. Here they are in (order of premiere date):
The Perks of Being a Wallflower: Logan Lerman will make you cry, you will wish Emma Watson and Ezra Miller were your best friends, and you will go home and hunt down your long-lost mixtapes. In select theaters September 21.
Pitch Perfect: No one does smart-talking like Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson is our new imaginary girlfriend, and we think Elizabeth Banks (who produced) can do no wrong. In theaters September 28.
Alex Cross: We can’t wait to see how Tyler Perry does with someone else’s lines … as a sexy detective, no less. And Matthew Fox’s weightloss is purely fascinating. In theaters October 19.
Skyfall: Daniel Craig is our weakness — and in this James Bond installment, we’ll get to see the skeleton in Q’s closet. Let’s forget Quantum of Solace ever happened. In theaters November 9.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2: We’ve been waiting for four years to see vampire Bella and the X-Men-style throwdown of Cullen clan vs. Volturi. In theaters November 16.
Silver Linings Playbook: Jennifer Lawrence finally gets to have some fun in a movie, opposite Sexiest Man Alive Bradley Cooper, and they’re both playing mentally unstable people in a movie directed by possibly mentally unstable filmmaker David O. Russell. In theaters November 21.
A press release just crossed the wire from our friends at Summit/Lionsgate, announcing an official Twilight movie marathon happening at theaters around the country on November 15. Fans will be able to watch all the films back-to-back leading up to a 10PM screening of the final film in the franchise, Breaking Dawn: Part 2. This is a super cool offering (and also a nice way to rake in some extra Twilight cash) but man, ten hours of Twilight? In a row? While we’re into seeing every meadow scene in a row, there are only so many minutes of werewolves in jorts that we can handle! Let’s weight the pros and cons of such an event, shall we? Because, truth be told, while ten hours seems long we may be convinced that this is indeed a good idea.
- 10 hours of intense Edward stares.
- You could eat popcorn and Junior Mints for like, three meals.
- Follow the journey through all five films of two of the most important Twilight props: the cactus and the dream catcher.
- You get to see the movies together as one actual saga. (This is like our one “serious” reason because honestly, it is pretty cool).
- So many ridiculous wigs and hair transformations to admire in such a short time!
- When you sit down to enjoy the uh, action in Breaking Dawn: Part 2, all those Edbella makeout sessions (er, and more) will be fresh in your mind.
Not only did Kristen Stewart get to enjoy the kudos surrounding On the Road during her visit to the Toronto Film Festival last week, she also had the chance to put two big rumors/fears to rest: 1) That the promotional tour for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 is going to be really awkward, and 2) that she has an ongoing feud with Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence.
When asked about the potential weirdness of promoting Breaking Dawn with Robert Pattinson, she told The Associated Press, “We’re going to be fine. We’re totally fine.”
Then Stewart and Lawrence finally quashed rumors that spread this spring about a supposed rivalry between the 22-year-old actresses. They met in person for the first time while doing press at the Intercontinental Hotel. “People who saw them said they were geeking out about each other,” a source told Us Weekly. “Kristen and Jennifer told friends they had emailed in the past but had never seen each other face to face. They’re big fans of each other.”
As prevalent as Twitter is among both celebs and regular folks alike, we sometimes forget what a huge step it is for someone, particularly a public figure, to decide to put it all out there, 140 characters at a time.
“I’ve stayed away from Twitter for a long time because I didn’t trust myself with such a very intimate but public way of relating to the world,” Twilight star and Twitter newcomer (@reasereaser) Elizabeth Reaser told VH1’s Kate Spencer on the red carpet at the VMAs. “But I feel like I’ve studied it enough, and I realized I was going on other people’s Twitter pages and I love seeing what my friends are up to. I love communicating with people, and I’ve actually kind of fallen in love with it.
“It’s a legal form of voyeurism, and I’m into it,” she added. “You don’t have to leave the house but you can communicate.”
After just five days on the service, Reaser admitted, “I’m really addicted to it now. It’s embarrassing. I’m having a really good time.” And we’re having a good time following her. In addition to chatting with her onscreen husband Peter Facinelli as they took in the VMAs last night, the actress also shared a couple of awesome pictures of herself: first in the car on the way to the show, then with the Fierce Five.
