‘Breaking Dawn’ Extended Edition Offers More ‘Twilight’ Thrills on Blu-ray (VIDEO)

As if Twilight fans hadn’t already gotten more bang for their buck when the final novel was split into two films – or maybe the studio got twice the buck for their bang? – eager Twihards are about to get eight more minutes of extended material when the film hits DVD and Blu-ray.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 Extended Edition (try saying that three times fast) will hit shelves on Saturday, March 2nd with new and extended scenes, an audio commentary by director Bill Condon and other exciting features.

“As Twilight series devotees know, there was a lot of ground to cover in adapting Breaking Dawn to the screen,” said Condon.

“Between the wedding, the honeymoon, the birth, and everything in between, naturally there were things that didn’t make it into our final cut. But I wanted to make sure that for all the Twihards out there, there was a chance to see some of these cut scenes – several of which are fan favorites from the book.”

Team DVD will pay their $22.98 while Team Blu will shell out $29.99 for their front-row seat to the wedding of Bella and Edward.

Watch the trailer for Breaking Dawn — Part 2 below, and let us know: what else do you want to see in the second half of Breaking Dawn that didn’t make it into the theatrical cut? Discuss it in the comments below!

10 Actresses Who Could Play Hillary Clinton in New Biopic ‘Rodham’ (PHOTOS & VIDEO)

One of the world’s most powerful women is about to be the subject of an upcoming biopic.

According to Politico, Hillary Clinton’s biopic is in the works and already has a script completed by South Korean screenwriter Young Il Kim.

Kim told Politco that the movie is based on the “journey of a woman who was torn between her personal desires and her professional ambition.”

Kim adds that both of Clinton’s personal and professional loves “literally pulled her thousands of miles apart, because Bill did not want to leave Arkansas, and she did not want to leave Washington, D.C.”

The biopic, which is currently titled “Rodham,” is said to focus on the Secretary of State’s early career as an attorney on the House Judiciary Committee as well as her days as the First Lady of Arkansas.

But there’s more to Clinton than her keen political sense – which the film will show. The future flick will showcase some of her more humanizing moments, including a scene of her getting ready and applying makeup while singing to Carly Simon’s “You’re So Vain.”

Temple Hill Entertainment, the same production company that produced The Twilight Saga, is set to produce the film.

Are you excited to see the Hillary Clinton biopic? Weigh in below.

Portland Strip Club Hopes for Boost in Hoodie Sales After Twilight’s Kristen Stewart Wears One (EXCLUSIVE)

The owner of Mary’s Strip Club in Portland, Ore. is “thrilled” that Twilight actress Kristen Stewart has been advertising the club’s official hoodie.

And Vicki Keller is hoping that there will now be an “online stampede” to buy the $30 garment which has a sexy topless stripper etched on the back.

“I’m thrilled that Kristen Stewart was photographed wearing our official hoodie – I hope it helps boost sales,” she revealed to Celebuzz.

As well as a drawing of a woman wearing just a pair of panties and heels, the hoodie has a scrawl promising the ‘finest topless dancers’.

Stewart, 22, was photographed in the cosy looking black garment with white detailing with a baggy white tank top, skinny jeans, black tennis shoes and baseball cap while she jetted out of LAX Airport.

But the strip club owner was remaining tight-lipped about whether Rob Pattinson or Stewart had visited her popular venue when the first Twilight movie was shot in Portland.

The club is a favorite for Oscar nominated director and local resident Gus Van Sant and Portlandia producer David Allen Cress.

And cast and crew from HBO’s popular hit Entourage have also dropped-in before while they filmed in the scenic city.

“I’m not sure if Robert or Kristen visited here while they filmed the first Twilight but she did not order the hoodie online or at the club,” explains Keller.

“I know the director Gus Van Sant and the Portlandia producer David Cress, so, maybe they gave it to Kristen as a gift because they like to come into my club.

“We have had a lot of industry folks drop in over the years since my father first opened the place back in 1955 — they like that we are a friendly local haunt with nice girls and good drinks — Kristen is welcome anytime now!”

It is believed that Stewart jetted back to Great Britain to celebrate the New Year with her boyfriend and Twilight co-star Pattinson — after a tumultuous 2012.

In July, she was infamously photographed in Los Angeles while caught in a steamy embrace with married director Rupert Sanders.

The pair reconciled in September while embarking on a publicity push for Breaking Dawn Part 2 all around the world.

Stewart recently opened-up about the affair that sent shockwaves through Hollywood and with the millions of twilight fans around the world in a recent interview.

“People think they knew a lot about me before. They know even less now,” she told USA Today.

“People will project whatever. It’s a huge form of entertainment. As soon as you step outside your own life and look at it like that and think that you can shape something – you need to live your life. I’m just going to live my life, actually.”

2012 Year in Review: Biggest Surprises At the Movies (PHOTOS)

For 2013, Hollywood has its work cut out for it.

2012 gave us the first-ever Marvel superhero team-up movie, the final Twilight film, the biggest James Bond movie ever and an unprecedented amount of Channing Tatum.

This year’s embarrassment of riches set the bar very high for movie fans. So before the new year tries to “out movie” the current one, Celebuzz looks back at seven of 2012’s biggest surprises – both pleasant and not-so-much – at the movies.

This feature is not a sequel to our most memorable movie moments – which you can read here. It’s rather a general look back/taking inventory of the year that was.

Now less reading, more…reading. But with pictures!

What surprised you at the movies this year? Sound off in the comments below.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Joaquin Phoenix and Matthew McConaughey: Favorite Male Movie Performances (PHOTOS)

Transformation is always a common quality that great actors seem to share, but in 2012, the one that seemed to dominate the year’s best performances was reinvention.

While Matthew McConaughey revived his career with a series of terrific – and different — turns in movies big and small, his Magic Mike co-star Channing Tatum proved that he could hold his own not just as a heartthrob, but as a bona fide actor.

Meanwhile, even the famously gifted Leonardo DiCaprio showed a different side of himself, having a bit of fun as a gloriously cruel plantation owner in Django Unchained, even as The Master‘s Joaquin Phoenix reminded viewers that he doesn’t simply play his characters, he becomes them.

Celebuzz has assembled a shortlist of the year’s best male performances, taking into account not just great acting, but the context of their work – what they’ve done in the past – and where they’re doing it.

Which is why Michael Sheen’s over-the-top turn as Aro in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 stands side by side with Phoenix and DiCaprio’s work: the gifted English actor gave such a flourish to his role that it stood out even more.

Then of course there’s the dark horses, those off-the-radar turns that earned accolades in critical circles but skirted mainstream attention because of subject matter that was simply too sophisticated for most.

Who made the list? Check out Celebuzz’ gallery of Favorite Male Performances above, and then below the trailer for Django Unchained, let us know whose acting impressed you the most. Or even better, who you think should have made this list that didn’t!

‘The Hobbit’ vs. ‘Skyfall’: Box Office Battle (POLL)

This weekend, the box office is in for a massive shake-up as The Hobbit challenges James Bond for the No. 1 spot.

Peter Jackson‘s much-anticipated return to Middle Earth is the sole new release this weekend, and its expected to rake in tons of hard-earned allowance money.

Holdovers like Skyfall and Twilight: Breaking Dawn — Part 2, which have shown amazing legs at the box office for the past few weeks, are expected to bow down before Bilbo and Company. But how big will The Hobbit open?

Lord of the Rings‘ legion of fans can’t wait to see the first of three prequels set in author J.R.R. Tolkien‘s world.

 

The Hobbit opens in 2D, 3D, IMAX and IMAX 3D, meaning you’d have to work very hard to not see it when it hits theaters on Friday. While reviews have been mixed-to-positive for the Warner Bros. release, a franchise this beloved is virtually critic proof. Celebuzz predicts at least a $70 million opening weekend.

James Bond’s 23rd big-screen outing is also his most lucrative, having grossed over $910 million worldwide. Skyfall reclaimed the top spot last weekend, in its fifth week of release – which is unprecedented for any film. After 50 years, audiences cannot get enough of 007, but the super spy will most likely relinquish the box office throne to Gandalf and his 13 dwarves.

‘Breaking Dawn’ to Batman, ‘Hunger Games’ to Hulk: 2012′s Biggest Box Office Hits (PHOTOS)

As far as movies go, 2012 was kind of a big deal.

This year, it felt like Hollywood believed in all of that “End of the World,” Mayan Calendar stuff, as studios released wave after wave of franchises like there was no tomorrow – and finding considerable box office success in the process.

Celebuzz rounds up the Top 10 biggest hits of the year. Which movie ranks No. 1? Read on to find out…

2012 delivered the end of the Twilight saga (for now) and the beginning of The Hunger Games. Threequels like Men in Black 3 and The Dark Knight Rises minted money, with the latter placing as one of 2012’s top five biggest earners.

At least 20 sequels entered the marketplace this year – more than ever before. Hollywood seemed to subsist solely on previously-established brands like James Bond and Spider-Man, or “intellectual property” like Hunger Games. In fact, only two films in the Top 10 this year are based on original ideas.

So what’s 2012’s biggest movie? In a minute. But first: This list reflects only the domestic grosses of theatrically-released films. (All box office figures are current as of press time.)

Which movie was your favorite this year? Sound off in the comments. And watch Celebuzz’ interview with the cast of one of 2012’s biggest hits, Breaking Dawn — Part 2below!
