Guri Weinberg Talks Breaking Dawn Part 2

Yahoo! Movies had a chance to talk with Guri Weinberg, who plays Stefan in Breaking Dawn Part 2, at the Official Twilight Convention in Dallas a few weeks ago.  He had this to say about the preparation that went into his roll:

The role comes from Romania over 3,000 years ago. They didn’t have the same Romanian dialect as it is today because 3,000 years ago there was Greek, Roman, and Slavic influences. We had to learn Romanian dialect, switch it around, and add those things in so it would be a little more genuine to the time when they were human. That was the hardest thing because it doesn’t exist. You have to make it up.

That was the hardest thing, along with learning about those times 3,000 years ago. How was life then? How did they do things? They used to rule the vampire world so they were more royal. For 1,500 years they’ve been kicked out and beat by the Volturi. You’ve got the royal behavior and thought but they’ve been exiled. They don’t have that royalty anymore. Some of them just want the revenge. It’s all those things. They used to have wives. Some of them lost their wives. How does that all play into it?

There is so much excitement about the Romanian coven!  Let us know in the comments why you think fans are looking forward to Vlad and Stefan.

Breaking Dawn Part 2 Voted Second Most Anticipated Film of 2012

It’s the end of the year and lists are coming out all over the place for all sorts of different things from what fans liked this year and are looking forward to in 2012.  Next Movie had several polls going that the Twilight Saga was in the running for.  Bella and Edward were given second place after Ron and Hermione for best on screen couple.  Breaking Dawn Part 2 came in second to The Hunger Games for most anticipated movie of 2012.  But the two hottest dudes of 2011 were Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, taking in 95% of the votes between the them!

But take a very close look at the numbers for most of these results.  The difference between first and second place is always marginal.  Then third place is usually a single digit number.   Any way you slice it, fans that vote for on line things love Twilight… and they also love Harry Potter and Hunger Games.  Are we surprised?

See the whole list at Next Movie.  Leave us a comment on your thoughts about how the voting went.

Kristen Stewart in Breaking Dawn Makes Allure’s 2011 Movie List

Allure Magazine has come up with their list of best movie beauty looks for 2011. It ranges from Kristen to to Rooney Mara in The Girl With a Dragon Tattoo.

This year, leading actresses took to the big screen with looks that ran the gamut from the perfect wedding makeup to a wig that looked too good to be, well, fake. Here, our picks for the six hair and makeup looks that mesmerized us at the movies this year.

Kristen Stewart in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn (Part 1). The usually bare-faced Bella Swan (Stewart) showed off her most done look yet when she walked down the aisle to marry her vamp love, Edward (played by Robert Pattinson). Stewart wore shimmery honey brown eyes, lots of lashes, and glossy peach lips. Her hair—a braided low do under a bejeweled veil—added a romantic finishing touch.

Check out the entire list here on Allure.
