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.

Austenland: The Girls Club We Never Wanted Nor Asked For

If we got angry about this kind of thing we'd be angry all the time

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

And Now For Something Completely Different

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]

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.

Twilight Is Almost Over, Host Fever Begins [TRAILER]

Assuming Direct Control

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? (via Deadline) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

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

Aaaaaas Yooooou Wiiiiiiiiiiiish

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.

Stephenie Meyer Further Proves She’s Not a One-Trick Pony by Producing Lois Duncan’s Down a Dark Hall

Cautiously Optimistic

The author of the Twilight saga is not just going to sit back and let one franchise define her whole career.

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.

Twilight Author Stephenie Meyer Doesn’t Like The Term “Twi-Hard”

I Guess I Can't Argue With That

I don't really like 'Twi-hard.' It sounds awful. - Twilight author Stephenie Meyer to E!News when discussing the nickname given to devoted fans of her popular book series. However, Meyer went on to comment about another nickname, one for the real-life couple Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart who play her characters Edward and Bella on the big screen. "I guess the Robstens are really funny to me," she dished. "You know, because they care so much about that relationship. It's just, I find it amusing." With so many making it their personal duty to hate on Twilight and those who love it, it's sort of amusing that the author herself has at least one problem with her rabid fandom. Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 opened nationwide last night. (via CNN) Previously in Twilight
