While J.J. Abrams and Eric Kripke's post-apocalyptic adventure series 'Revolution' enjoys a steady climb in NBC's ratings and regard, there's no denying that much of the show's charm comes from gruff, yet charming rogue Miles Matheson ('Twilight's' Billy Burke). Originally cast in the villainous role of General Monroe (now played by David Lyons), Burke's starring turn in the hit NBC series has afforded him exposure the 'Twilight' films have not, playing Bella's seldom-seen father Charlie Swan.
With the 'Twilight' series ending after 'Breaking Dawn - Part 2,' however, could some of the famed stars appear on 'Revolution'?
'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2' is almost here -- the final chapter in the 'Twilight' saga promises a huge vampire-on-vampire war, but first Bella is going to have to learn how to deal with being one of them in this brand new clip.
For the 'Breaking Dawn, Part 1' premiere in Los Angeles, around 1,200 'Twilight' fans camped out to get a glimpse of Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and the rest of the cast. For the 'Breaking Dawn, Part 2' premiere, a whopping 2,250 'Twilight' fans are expected to camp out.
Though 'Twilight' has its Twi-hards, it seems the latest TV spot for 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2' is looking to broaden the audience by selling the scale of the final chapter of the 'Twilight' films to people who may have written off the franchise.
The moment it became apparent that the 'Twilight' series was to adapt its entire four-book saga for the movies, and perhaps even before, the 'Harry Potter' franchise comparisons flew. And like the 'Harry Potter' franchise, studios figured that by splitting the final installment of a franchise into two films, the hype and box-office gross could grow to enormous proportions. Still, by their repsective ends 'Harry Potter' will have a full three movies on 'Twilight,' so how could bigwigs possibly bridge that gulf? Did somebody say 'Twilight,' the TV series?
For the last official movie poster promoting 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2,' Summit Entertainment made us work for it. As opposed to Warner Bros. who's in the midst of releasing poster after poster of 'The Hobbit' sans all the dramatic movie scenes, the 'Breaking Dawn' team took us on a little scavenger hunt by releasing bits of the final poster one section at a time over the past couple days.
Don't worry, we're not saying you have to go searching for all of them this very second. The final poster is up in full and you can check it out below.
Thanks to the efforts of literary giant Stephanie Meyer, the vampire has been forever and (using a vocab word she loves so much) “irrevocably” transformed. No longer does this mythological monster hide in the shadows of gorey horror flicks, but instead it emerges into the mainstream spotlight, literally sparkling and wanting to fall in love with young, mortal teens.
Once that first 'Twilight' book hit the shelves, the saga's bite out of pop culture spawned a bloodsucker-obsessed cult following with an insatiable thirst for anything vampire related. Luckily, they were given more in the form of HBO's ‘True Blood,’ where again our preconceived images of bloodsuckers were modified to incorporate the softer side of being a cursed immortal, followed close behind by ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and more ‘Twilight’ movies. Little did we know, however, if we were going to embrace vampires, werewolves and zombies weren’t far behind; and so began the reigns of Joe Manganiello, ‘The Walking Dead,’ ‘Teen Wolf’ and zombie films galore.
So, are we finally close to being done with this monster apocalypse? Are we ready to set aside vampires and move on to the next fad? If young adult fiction is our prophet, then the answer is not yet, but soon.
Every movie wants to get in on the post-credits bandwagon, the most recent one being 'The Avengers'' sneak peek at Thanos, but apparently 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2' is trying to join in. Certainly a surprising film to feature a stinger, most would probably agree, but it's been such a fan-driven series that it has to be considered something of a parting gift to the folks who made it so huge.
