Austenland: The Girls Club We Never Wanted Nor Asked For

The newest film from Jerusha Hess (co-writer of Napoleon Dynamite) and Sony Pictures Classics is called Austenland, and is basically about women LARPing Jane Austen-worthy scenarios.

So why am I side-eyeing this project like there’s no tomorrow? It’s written and acted and produced by women, about women. I’m a feminist, so shouldn’t I be happy? Why does the film’s marketing strategy make me want to gag? Head under the cut for the answer.

In Defense of (Being a Fan Of) Twilight

Between The Hunger Games, Twilight, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, etc. etc., it seems that of late the publishing industry has more sway in Hollywood than ever before. (I could go on about the perception that the film industry is “creatively bankrupt,” but that, dear readers, is another story and shall be told another time.) This recent glut of book adaptations has led The Hollywood Reporter to create its first list of Hollywood’s 25 Most Powerful Authors. Included on the list are eight female authors: EL James (#4), Suzanne Collins (#5), Stephenie Meyer (#10), J.K. Rowling (#11), Charlaine Harris (#14), Laura Hillenbrand (#19), Candace Bushnell (#21), and Gillian Flynn (#22).

Yeah, I can see you gritting your teeth at Stephenie Meyer being included above J.K. Rowling. Stop it.

We need to talk about Twilight hate.

Robert Pattinson Speaks On Behalf Of Every Twilight Hater In The World [VIDEO]

Whenever we do a post on Twilight on The Mary Sue, we inevitably get comments with people talking about how much they despise Stephenie Meyer’s writing, the actors involved, or just, you know, the fact that it exists at all. But the funny thing is, you clicked on a story about Twilight so we’re not sure how to help you. So today, in order to please both those who hate sparkly vampires and those who’ve probably already seen The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 by now, we’ve got a wonderful video from Buzzfeed. They spliced together bits of interviews with Robert Pattinson talking about the films and his character Edward. Which he can’t stand. And well, I’d feel really bad for him if he didn’t have hundred dollar bills falling on the floor every time he raked his hands through his hair. Seriously though. Watch.

Twilight Is Almost Over, Host Fever Begins [TRAILER]

I have no problem admitting I’ve read Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series (yes, even that bit online from Edward’s point of view). I don’t think it’s classic literature, but I enjoyed it for what it was. What I haven’t read is Meyer’s previous novel, The Host, which has a very Invasion of the Body Snatchers-type premise. I haven’t heard great things about it, but Summer Entertainment has timed its release very well to coincide with the ending of the Twilight Saga films. It stars Saoirse Ronan in the lead role though, and I adore her. Good trailer if nothing else?

Instead of a Twilight Reboot, How About A Twilight TV Show?

We just assumed a Twilight reboot was inevitable. Most likely starting production the minute The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 hit theaters. But did any of us think they’d create a television spin-off to continue the franchise? Well, that might be exactly what happens.
