The Call Sheet sifts through the day's glut of Hollywood news to find the stories even non-industry types can care about. Today: It's almost time to go nuts about Twilight again, it's almost time to be civilly excited about The Hunger Games, and Ricky Gervais wants back in.
Well, it's finally that time of the year. Next week, movie four (of five) in the Twilight vampyr Mormance series, Breaking Dawn Part 1, opens nationwide, which means it's time for the Twihards to come out in full force. This involves lining up today to camp out outside LA's Nokia Theater to get a good seeing spot for Monday's premiere. So people will be sleeping outside (Occupy Forks?) for like five days all for the mere hope of glimpsing the taut, shimmering frame of their sweet vampire love, Eddie Cullen. And probably like Jakums and Bellatrix and all the rest of the werevamp gang. It's pretty exciting! So exciting, in fact, that MovieTickets.com says they've sold out a whopping 1,344 Friday showings of the movie across this strange, supernatural being-craving land of ours. This is the penultimate Twinkles: A Love Story movie, so expect there to be some sad anxiety swirling around this whole thing. Imagine what the lead-up to the actual last movie will be like! Probably everyone will just die! Just heaps of dead bodies wearing "Team Charlie" T-shirts lying outside the multiplexes while a single tear rolls down Kellan "Meatthunder" Lutz's cheek. The world is soon ending. [Deadline]
OMG, speaking of madness! The Hunger Games movie, based on the first book in Suzanne Collins' wonderfully grim kids-in-combat YA series, is coming out in March which means we're about due for some kind of trailer. Well, as luck would have it, just such a trailer will debut on the Good Morning America show for people who've just called out sick this very coming Monday. Hunger Games trailer! We get to see Katniss and Peeta and Gale and all them in all their moving, talking glory! This is something to be very excited about. We're really looking forward to this. Anyway. Haha, aren't Twilight fans weird? [THR]
