After Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 grossed over $700 million worldwide (on roughly a $110 million budget) and projections for Part 2 forecasting an equally (if not more) profitable box office run, it’s no surprise to hear that Lionsgate would love to dole out even more movies in Stephenie Meyer’s world of vampires and werewolves.
Of course, at this point, Meyer has been hesitant to confirm any plans to extend the series beyond the fourth (Breaking Dawn) book but, should she decide to revisit her Twilight creations, Lionsgate is once again making it clear that they’ll be anxiously waiting in the wings to turn the would-be book into another cinematic cash
This weekend, the romantic drama The Vow opens in theaters nationwide. Starring Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams, this story about a woman losing her memory and her husband’s bid to get her to fall in love with him again was inspired by a true story. The film, though, adds in too much schmaltz and melodrama to really work.

Almost 13 years after Episode I debuted in theaters, Lucasfilm is set to once again re-release the Star Wars (now) hexology – this time in post-converted 3D. The 3D re-release also marks the first time moviegoers will ...

Moviegoers will be seeing a whole lot of Russell Crowe onscreen in the foreseeable future. He’s expected to appear in RZA’s The Man with the Iron Fists before the year is out, and will also be seen playing Inspector Javert in the Les Misérables musical adaptation, due out by December 2012. Thereafter, in 2013, he can be seen portraying the biological father of Superman in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, as well as a corrupt politician in Allen Hughes’ Broken City.
Crowe also recently became loosely attached to Akiva Goldsman’s Winter’s Tale – not to mention, he’s admitted to giving serious consideration to starring in Darren Aronofsky’s Noah after he completes work on Les Miz (but not the RoboCop reboot, as was previously rumored).
