STEWART'S BREAKING DAWN 2 MAKES EXTRA'S #1 'MOST ENTERTAINING' OF 2012
As the year-ending lists come out, there appears to be a pretty good amount that feature SWATH and its cast. The Oscar ones are the ones we are really keeping our eyes on. But here is one by Extra TV.
Extra announced its list of The Most Entertaining of 2012. Kristen Stewart's Breaking Dawn Part 2 made the list at #1 being a member of the cast of Twilight.
In 2011, the Twilight cast came in at #5 but with the successful ending to the franchise with the release of the final film, it has taken off to be the best of film of the franchise.
"Stephenie Meyer's bestselling novels -- about a girl named Bella Swan who falls in love with vampire Edward Cullen, while also forging a close friendship with werewolf Jacob Black -- made the tween set (and their mothers) swoon, launching a literary phenomenon in 2005 on a par with "Harry Potter."
Then came the films. When the first "Twilight" movie was released in 2008, young stars Kristen Stewart ("Bella") and Robert Pattinson ("Edward") were catapulted into teen idol-dom, with hunky Taylor Lautner ("Jacob") following their path in "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" in 2009.
The third film, "Eclipse," opened to huge numbers in 2010, grossing over $300 million domestically, while the fourth book, "Breaking Dawn," was split into two movies. "Part 1" -- which sees Bella and Edward finally get married and consummate their passion, resulting in an unexpected pregnancy -- opened November 18 to even bigger grosses.
With $751.1 million in the bank, the final installment, “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2,” already ranks as the most lucrative chapter in the vampire saga. What a nice way to say goodbye!
The rest of the list came in as follows:
#2 Channing Tatum
#3 'Fifty Shades of Grey'
#4 The Cast of 'Hunger Games'
#5 Honey Boo Boo
