Twilight Saga parody producers are going big in their lawsuit against Summit Entertainment. See details below:
Behind the Lines Productions is suing Summit, as well as overseer Lionsgate Entertainment, for wrongfully terminating its feature-length movie, Twiharder. In a lawsuit — that’s 219 pages long by the way — Behind the Lines accuses Lionsgate-Summit of making “anti-competitive conduct.” Twiharder “portrayed hyper-exaggerated caricatures from The Twilight Saga movies and lampooned expressive elements embodied in Defendants’ pre-existing works through imitative reference.”
To sum up, the larger company sent a “sham” cease-and-desist notice, ruining Behind the Lines’ production as well as their relationships with distributors and insurers who revoked their offers after Summit’s interruption. So they’re asking for $500 million(!) in damages.
When a book is turned into a film, there are always going to be parts excluded, and sometimes they even have to change parts. The Twilight Saga films were no different, but even us Die-hard Twihards have to admit that some of the changes worked! Twilight Lexicon compiled a list of changes from the book to the movie that, in the end, worked out quite well!
#10: Combining Jessica and Lauren into one character:
Maybe it’s just the perfection of Anna Kendrick, but she nailed both Jessica and Lauren’s personality so that we don’t really miss having them BOTH. We get the snark and the snobbery of them both all wrapped up in a perfectly delivered minor performance proving that there are no such things as small parts, only small actors.
#9: Having Bella see Ghost-Edward in New Moon:
One of the many challenges facing bringing New Moon to the screen was that the main heart throb from the first film would barely be in it. So… how do you film a book where the main love interest is missing for more than half? You bring in his “ghost” as frequently as you can.
#8: Showing Edward’s past in Breaking Dawn Part 1:
Fans always want more back story, and even though we know this was how Edward lived for a while, we never really get to “see” it in the books. This was excellent for character development and to give audiences who might not be as well versed in the books to know Edward’s reasons behind not wanting to turn Bella. It’s also a fun tip of the hat to other monster movies!
#7: Riley and the Newborns getting more screen time:
I think everyone felt creeped out when they watched Riley hovering over Charlie while he slept on the couch! Even more creepy was the image of the newborns coming out of the water. Showing the crazed newborns, conversations with Victoria, and the lead in of the Volturi added to the mounting fear for a final battle.

Celebuzz is asking fans to vote for their favorite Twilight Saga moments!
How about that twist? “Twilight” fans certainly weren’t expecting “Breaking Dawn, Part 2′s” bloody “ending.” And for that, we have to add the film’s epic fight scene to our list. In fact, we can safely say it was one of the most entertaining scenes of the entire franchise.
Sure, Edward and Bella’s first time was sweet and romantic — but it was also hilarious, especially when Edward accidentally breaks the bed (and rips the pillows!) after getting a little too excited.
Baby vampire Bella showed off her newfound strength in an arm wrestling match against the franchise’s most lovable vamp, Emmett Cullen. Needless to say, dainty little Bella won, resulting in Emmett’s adorable defeated face.

The folks over at Twilight Lexicon wrote up a nice piece on the best moments of the Twilight Saga from book to screen!
#10: The first cafeteria scene in Twilight:
Ok, so in the book Edward is already sitting in the cafeteria as opposed to just walking by, but let’s face it, it still works. It was our first glimpse of Edward… which changed everything. It was also our first glimpse of Rob… and a star was born. Add in Jessica’s banter and Bella’s claim of not being interested and you have a great movie moment.
#9 The wedding scene:
Again, we have a change from the wedding being inside in the books to outside in the movie. But did we mind? Nope! The dress was old fashioned, the decor was over the top amazing, and the mood was perfectly romantic.
#8. Rosalie and Jasper’s flashbacks:
Eclipse is a tough story with all the side stories going on and flashbacks, but we think both Jasper and Rosalie’s stories were done so well! From costuming to characterization, the flashbacks were an integral to the film as much as they are to the book.
#7. The newborn battle:
We’d had some build up to battles with the dance studio scene, which was great. But add in the wolves to the mix and you’ve got an amazing action sequence! Top it off with Victoria and Riley taking on Edward and a bleeding Bella and it gets even better!
#6. The tent scene:
Given that Fire and Ice is one of the most popular chapters in Eclipse, the expectation for this scene was huge. They reshot the scene to make it more tense and to get Bella and Jacob closer to each other. The final product was well worth the trouble… and even gave us a great line that wasn’t in the books.
#5. The baseball scene:
Personally, the baseball scene wasn’t that monumental for us in the books. But when we saw it on film, it was spectacular! The baseball scene is possibly the most popular scene from the first film… and a popular choice at costume competitions!

Stephenie Meyer chatted briefly with E! News Friday in New York at Project Runway‘s finale show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
When asked about the Kristen Stewart cheating scandal she commented, “That is so not my business.”
Stephenie went on to chat about the Twilight series movies coming to an end:
“I tend to get really sad when I have to [think about the final film],” she said. “So I’m sort of putting it off. I figure it’ll be a really emotional night when it comes out and we know that it’s over. That’s going to be rough.”
Stephenie also added, “I’m writing now.”
Well Stephenie, we can’t wait to see what you’re writing!

The folks over at Team-Twilight started a new series where they chat with random celebs about the Twilight Saga!
This month they’ve caught up with celeb stylist extraordinaire and TV personality Rachel Zoe!
You’ve spoken publicly about your love for Twilight. What is it about the series that you love so much?
I would say that you completely lose yourself in the purest form of romance. It’s the first time in so long that you get to see such a strong love, and get so caught up in it without any of the physicality
You’ve also been outspoken about your crush on Robert Pattinson. Have you gotten to meet him yet?
No, I have not met Rob. But, I have many mutual friends and have heard nothing but the loveliest things about him. I think he’s a very talented actor and would love to meet him in the future.
If you could style any of the Twilight cast, who would you pick and why?
Bella and Edward — I would love to dress them as a couple because I think that’s always fun.
