Chris Evans Suits Up for the Dapperest Ice Bucket Challenge Ever, Plus Lynda Carter, Matt Smith, and More

We're waiting, Tilda Swinton.

The MVP for this round of Ice Bucket Challenges ($41 million raised and counting) is Chris Evans, not just for wearing a suit (though thanks for that, sir), but also for putting proper thought into what constitutes "ice water." He’s exactly right—you have to let the ice melt a little, or else the water doesn’t get cold and the cubes bounce right off! Captain America, you nerd.

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.

Breaking Dawn – Part 2 Is Named the Year’s Worst Movie by the Razzies. Go On, Act Surprised.

Of Course!

There were worse movies to come out this year, to be sure. But, like the Oscars they were created to mock, the Razzie Awards is just a yearly bit of fluff that picks their winners (or "winners") based on mostly meaningless criteria. So let's just sit back and have fun with it, yeah?

If Twilight Had Cast Paul Giamatti as Edward I Definitely Would Have Seen It [VIDEO]

And All Was Right With the World

So here's National Treasure Paul Giamatti acting out scenes from Twilight, You've Got Mail, and Magic Mike. He... emotes a little more than Robert Pattinson, let's put it like that. The video is behind the jump; it went dead at a few minutes ago because apparently some Higher Power doesn't think the world is ready to handle the awesome that is Paul Giamatti as a creepy, stalkerish sparkly vampire. But when embed code's working again—soon, hopefully—you can judge that for yourself. [Edit: It appears to be working now.]

To the Surprise Of No One, Breaking Dawn – Part 2 Gets Nominated in Every Single Razzie Awards Category

This Makes Sense

Tomorrow morning the 2013 Oscar nominations will be announced, but today we're focusing our attention on the Razzies, which have honored (well, "honored") the worst achievements in film since 1981. Judging by the noms alone, Razzie voters seem to have already picked their least favorite film of the year: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, which was nominated 11 times in 10 categories. I'd question what the Razzies will do now that there are no more Twilight movies to nominate (THANK. YOU. GOD.), but it's not like there's any shortage of awful movies without sparkly vampires in them. Still, the Razzies should give the franchise a lifetime achievement award or something.

Twilight’s Robert Pattinson Would Take Any Role Just To Be In Star Wars VII

May The Force Be With You

Robert Pattinson is doing a lot of press these days thanks to the final installment of the Twilight franchise, Breaking Dawn Part 2, being released this past week. Since he's not actually the biggest fan of anything having to do with Twilight, interviewers take part of their time to ask him other, more interesting questions. For instance, would he be interested in a role in Disney's Star Wars VII? Yes, yes he would. And he is willing to play anyway. Yes, anyone, even Jar-Jar.

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

we loled

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.

Double-Standard Central: Everyone Needs to Stop Freaking Out About This Kristen Stewart Thing

Oh Hollywood

I don’t really need to tell you what’s going on with Kristen Stewart right now. If you have an Internet connection, you know. She cheated on Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson with Rupert Sanders, the married director of Snow White and the Huntsman. The scandal has given birth to a plethora of gossip rag covers, a few awkward TV interviews and speculation on how the final film in the Twilight franchise might be affected by the break-up of its stars. I don’t want to talk about any of those things. With everybody—from gossip hubs like Perez Hilton and TMZ to legitimate bastions of entertainment journalism like Variety and The Hollywood Reporter—keeping the public informed about the (possibly career-ruining, if reports can be believed) scandal, what gets me most curious about this whole thing is why people care so much.

Cast and Crew Say Fan Killed Outside Comic Con Will Not Go Unremembered

Today in Depressing

I try to keep a "hate the sin, love the sinner" policy on Twilight and its fandom. Frankly, I feel like it's only fair for a number of reasons. A work can be deconstructed much less painfully than a person. Certainly, there's almost nothing about the central principles of the Batman mythos that I would actually like to see exist in reality, from vigilante tactics to child endangerment. And realistically, if I decided to immediately regard with disgust every person who likes something that I find to be poorly made or textually problematic, I wouldn't have a lot of human interaction, and that includes with myself. I suppose what I'm trying to say is that I pity the Twilight fandom, because while there are plenty of fandoms out there that exist around poorly made or textually problematic works, they're the Black Sheep of the geek world. I could talk about why I think they've been placed in that box, but that's another post entirely. This post is about the unfortunate death of a fan, at one of the biggest fan events of the year, and no matter what you think about a work of fiction, you should be able to agree that the untimely death of a fan in the middle of a fan celebration is tragic.

You May Breathe Easy – Robert Pattinson Says He Won’t Be Playing Finnick In The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

And All Was Right With the World

Last week we freaked a bunch of you out over the mere notion that Twilight star Robert Pattinson might take on the role of Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Those of you who were squarly against the idea can now relax, Pattinson himself has told the press he is not up for the role, and quite possibly offended that he wouldn't even be considered. Also, Kristen Stewart and Jennifer Lawrence may be up for the same role. Prepare to hear that overly dramatized for the next few months...

Word is he may be playing Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games' sequel, Catching Fire. So, how does that make you feel?

The Best Breaking Dawn Review You’ll Ever Read

Review

Editor’s Note: We had asked contributing writer Amanda LaPergola to review the movie Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 for our site. All we asked was that the review be submitted before all the other Breaking Dawn reviews came out. As of press time we have still not heard from her. Yesterday, a package arrived at The Mary Sue headquarters containing what appeared to be a note from Amanda’s mom (“Dear Miss Sue: Please excuse my daughter’s tardiness. She has been unable to complete the assignment due to the last five minutes of the mid-season finale of The Walking Dead.”) and the following pages.
