Oh, so there's a trailer for Breaking Dawn pt. 2! Did you kind of forget about this movie? Me too, it's OK. But holy shit, this thing is almost over FOR REAL. Last week I read that Summit issued a denial to reports that they were rebooting the series already (everyone's afraid of getting Spider-Man's rep, I guess (and that movie isn't even out yet! Uh-oh!)) and then basically said they won't touch Twilight again until Stephenie Meyer writes something else. Which seems less like a promise and more like a nudge.
As for the trailer itself, uh, it is mostly fade outs? Like I can barely register each image before the fade starts. That is my least favorite editing technique, by the way. It makes me feel like they're embarrassed about the shots or something. Like how when girls flash people in high school they always pull their shirt back down really fast. Edit a trailer the way an adult shows her boobs, people!
Elsewhere, Ashley Greene is apparently going to play the daughter of the founder of CBGB? Well, at least this movie will probably come out soon, since it seems like it already should have come out in 2008 or something. Were they waiting for someone associated with the Kristal family to die? That's a serious question.
Meanwhile, there has been a lot of Hunger Games casting news since Catching Fire introduces Johanna, Finnick, and Plutarch--very big characters in the book who will surely be drastically reduced in the films. Word is mostly unknowns and Jena Malone, and probably none of them will get the part. Somewhere, Jesse Williams smiles serenely at a wall, which promptly crumbles. I did freak out over a passage from an article on Slashfilm a few days ago which noted that Romeo Miller was a "possibility" for Finnick, "since his race is never explicitly stated in the books." WHO CARES EVEN IF IT WAS? You're really going to act like we have to preserve the RACIAL INTEGRITY of Suzanne Collins's original work? WHAT THE FUCK? I also read somewhere that producers met with wrestler Kevin Nash, and that Nash told reporters that he hopes he gets to play a character that doesn't die. Hahaha, seriously? I mean I know the guy is a wrestler but is he that dumb?
Here's a nice piece from The Hairpin that only sort of has to do with The Hunger Games. I like it though!
And Cat Marnell has another journey into the heart of darkness posted on VICE.
Finally, and I know I am burying the lede here, but here's some blurry video of Kristen Stewart's boobs. You are welcome, America.
