  1. Lionsgate Wants To Do More Movies Based On The Hunger Games

    Fantastic Muttations And Where To Find Them

    Ahhh, Lionsgate. You are just desperate for a franchise on the level of what Warner Brothers has with Harry Potter, aren't you? First you get the rights to a young adult series, then you start talking two-part finales and theme parks and exhibitions, and now you want more? Peeta is not impressed.

  2. Things We Saw Today: A Slick New Wonder Woman Art of War Statue

    Remember those DC Nation Wonder Woman shorts from 2013 by Robert Valley? Well DC Collectibles has made that super-cool lady their next installment to the "Art of War" line. Sadly no roller-skating Giganta. Yet.

  3. Sesame Street‘s Twilight Parody is An Oddly Appropriate Way To Learn About Self-Control

    Bella your blood smells like COOOOOOOOOOKIES

    I mean, when you take out all the thinly veiled domestic abuse narratives and concerns about immortality and soullessness, deep down the series is really about a guy who can't handle not eating something (or someone) he really wants to eat, right? Also, props to the lady muppet who stars alongside Cookie Monster; she's got Bella's flat affect down to a science.

  4. The Twilight Series Is Coming Back… And the Reason Why Is Actually Pretty Cool

    I know. I'm shocked, too.

    When I read that the Twilight movie franchise was being resurrected with a series of five short films, my reaction was akin to a cat trying to get a hairball out of its throat. But then I read the thing that all the shorts will have in common and... readers, I didn't think I'd ever say this, but... Twilight. I am proud of you.

  5. The “Potent” New Influence Of Women’s Wallets On Hollywood

    Paranormal Activity? Apparently that's on us, ladies.

    When I'm being optimistic, it feels like there was a slight shift this summer in the way Hollywood perceived women. True, Marvel still fiddle-faddled over a female-led movie, but there was cause for celebration, too: Scarlett Johansson proved her massive box-office draw, the Expendabelles movie progressed with casting news, and Columbia Pictures wants to make a female Ghostbusters reboot. So what caused this small increase in representation?

  6. Are Hunger Games, Harry Potter, and Twilight Fans Death Obsessed?

    At the very least they're obsessed with sequels.

    One common theme between the Hunger GamesHarry Potter, and Twilight series is death, but does that mean that fans of those series are "death obsessed"? According to Live Science some psychologists think so.

  7. A Brief History of Fandom, Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Being a Fan

    (The) Doctor (and a) Strange Love

    In the beginning, I was not a fan. I liked stuff - Firefly, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings - but the tween who freaked over Bon Jovi and baseball grew up and moved out. I knew about fans; I married a classic Trekkie, who memorizes music cues and can name an episode by its first five seconds, and who first went to Comic-Con in 1972. But I thought, as so many do, that fandom was the domain of man-children with a less than firm grasp on reality. Then I met the Doctor.

  8. Could You Distinguish Between This Twilight Bad Lip Reading And The Real Film?

    It is a gift!

    And I say this as someone who has taken enjoyment out of Twilight. But Bad Lip Reading does it again with their version of Eclipse and makes me almost snort liquid out of my nose. Bravo. Do you think you could handle more? The first film and New Moon Bad Lip Reading after the jump. I dare you.

  9. Marshmallows to Cure What Ails You: Veronica Mars & Fandoms

    Essay

    I was seventeen when I joined my first fandom. It was 1999, and Rent was kind of a big deal. The second National tour was underway - The Benny Cast to be specific. It definitely felt like the highlight of senior year was going to be their stop through Cleveland. Always a loner, I wasn’t just going to see another show with my parents. I was going to rush (I didn’t really know what that meant), I was going with actual friends who had done it before, and there was promise of a “stage door” visit afterwards. Everything was new and exciting. Fandom feels like a completely different beast in 2014. There’s a lingo to it you have to translate until you really go native. Things like fan fiction and LARPing are probably side-eyed fiercely by newcomers until they fall down their Saarlaac pit of a weekend and suddenly look up on Sunday afternoon and wonder what happened to the last 24 hours. Outside the great personal stories from individual fans, every somebody seems to have an opinion - and they’re rarely good - about fandom.

  10. Divergent’s Shailene Woodley On Twilight: “What Message Are We Sending To Young People?”

    Wise Words

    "Twilight, I'm sorry, is about a very unhealthy, toxic relationship. [The protagonist Bella] falls in love with this guy and the second he leaves her, her life is over and she's going to kill herself! What message are we sending to young people? That is not going to help this world evolve." - Divergent star Shailene Woodley speaking to Teen Vogue. Hollywood is all about comparing one thing to another, especially when it comes to young adult properties (does that really ever help?), in order to cash in on the previous success. Whether it's comparing "love stories" or pitting the lead characters against each other, it's nice to see Woodley addressing the issues straight on. (via Gossip Cop) Previously in Women in Film

  11. Geek Lip Balm for Half a Dozen Fandoms Probably Smells Great

    i'll just leave this here

    According to Geek Fire Labs, Loki smells of peaches and honey, Katniss of cinnamon and french vanilla, Marceline of strawberries, and your patronus of white chocolate, vanilla, and mint. I don't have problems with any of these, and if you feel the same way, you can buy their charmingly decorated lip balms on Etsy, alone, in a batch, or as a gift set with cute buttons.

  12. Lionsgate Sues Twilight Parody That Sued Them For Having a Twilight Monopoly

    THIS IS FOR REAL MAKO

    Last spring we told you the riveting tale how Behind the Lines Productions, creator of the Twilight parody Twiharder, decided to sue Lionsgate and Summit on the grounds that they're big meanies who unfairly monopolize the Twilight franchise... a franchise they, y'know, own the rights to. Behind the Lines has some gumption, I'll give them that. Except now that gumption's gotten them countersued by Lionsgate, whose 204 page countercomplaint can be basically summed up as "...You guys aren't serious, right?"

  15. KILL IT WITH FIRE: The Animatronic Twilight Baby [VIDEO]

    The Human Machine

    If you're easily frightened, don't play this video. All others, prepare to be scarred for life. The supernatural baby we got in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn was terrible...just...terrible. But what we didn't know was, it could have been much, much worse. Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  17. UPDATED: DC Creator Tony Daniel Talks About The Romantic Superman/Wonder Woman Title At Fan Expo

    If you liked it then you should have put a Lantern Ring on it

    Fan Expo is taking place in Toronto this weekend and as is usually the case, DC Comics held a panel to talk about their upcoming projects. The DC All Access panel yesterday featured Jeff Lemire, Lee Bermejo, Eddie Berganza, Brian Cunningham, and Tony Daniel. While lots of books were discussed, it's the yet-to-be released Superman/Wonder Woman title that we were interested to learn more about. Hit the jump to find out how the title initially came about, why it was compared to Twilight, and why one audience member felt the need to stand up and ask for more than just romance.

  18. Vampire Academy Might Change Your Mind About The Vampire Genre Craze

    Oh Hollywood

    You might think that the vampire genre is worn out, and I'd probably agree with you-- but if anyone can do something new with it, it would be Mean Girls director Mark Waters and his brother, Heathers writer Daniel Waters. According to Empire, the story of Vampire Academy goes like this...

  19. The Complete Twilight Saga Blu-Ray Is Inexplicably Without Sparkles

    Not all that glitters is gold

    Entertainment Weekly debuted the inevitable complete set of the Twilight Saga but I have to say, I'm a bit disappointed. It's so...plain. Writes EW, "Twilight Forever: The Complete Saga, a 10-disc Blu-ray set or a 12-disc DVD set, will be available on Nov. 5 — right before the fifth anniversary of the first Twilight — and includes two hours of never-before-seen bonus material, including new cast interviews, as well as all five movies." It will also include a photo album and every extra from the older DVDs. Though I suppose there's still room for the super special edition that comes in a life-sized replica of Robert Pattison, Kristen Stewart, or Taylor Lautner's head.

  20. Things We Saw Today: Kermit and Piggy Go LEGO

    Things We Saw Today

    This Muppets LEGO set is only a proposed project on LEGO Cuusoo, LEGO's site for petitioned projects the public can vote on, but the Muppet minifigs look ready for the big time. User Jedikermit has suggested multiple sets for the figures, based on the many Muppet films, and given that Muppets Most Wanted comes out next spring, we think LEGO should take note.
