Summit Entertainment has just announced that Breaking Dawn: Part 1, the fourth installment in the Twilight Saga, has grossed an estimated $701.3 million globally since the film was released in November.
Breaking Dawn Part 1 , starring Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, is also on its way to becoming the highest grossing film in the series. The film is just a few million dollars away from passing New Moon, which took in $709.8 million.
The film company’s co-chairmen Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger said in a statement: “The milestone is important on several fronts and illustrates the vitality of the franchise on a global scale even after four films. Stephenie Meyer’s story and characters were brought to the screen this time via the talented hands of Bill Condon along with the cast and crew that has been with the film franchise since its inception. We are very proud of the success the franchise has experienced and anticipate the saga’s conclusion this November.”
Congratulations to everyone involved with Breaking Dawn on this accomplishment!
Kristen Stewart may be eying the end of the Twilight series as Breaking Dawn Part 2 comes to a close in November 2012 and the start, but it looks like another gig has opened up to the 21 year old star. Fashion house Balenciaga has signed the actress as the spokesperson for its newest scent for women.
Kristen told WWD that Balenciaga has always stood out for her and when she first began to consider fashion and rarely knew the brand she was wearing she admits she always recognized and loved Balenciaga. She also went on to say that it was nice to be involved that spoke to her back then and continues to excite her even today. Stewart commented; “The brand is just cool. That’s the way it is. I feel drawn to it. It provokes on a number of levels. It isn’t afraid or contrived. It hits a very cool balance, always. Always pretty undeniable.” The Balenciaga creative director Nicholas Ghesquière said the Snow White and the Huntsman embodies a modern style with a unique sensibility and intelligence.
Nicholas also adds that he invited her to a project shot by Bruce Weber and ever since then he has wanted to collaborate with her. The name of the new fragrance and details on what it will smell like have yet to be announced, but fans can expect to see Kristen in ads for the scent when it arrives this fall. What do you think of Kristen’s new gig?

It’s no secret that we are very excited about Kristen Stewart’s first big non-”Twilight” movie, ”Snow White and the Huntsman,” which made it through to the Sweet 16 in the MTV Movie Brawl 2012. We’re excited not only because Stewart is the star, but because she is playing an action-star version of Snow White and faces off against a very formidable Evil Queen in Charlize Theron.
The last time we caught up with Theron, she hadn’t yet filmed the big fight sequence with Stewart but admitted that she hoped her Evil Queen might get the best of Stewart’s Snow White. “I’m just really, really, really hoping I get to kill her,” she said with a smile. “That is how the story ends up, right?”
We’re pretty sure that isn’t how the story ends — especially since we happened to bump into Theron again at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards on Thursday (January 12), and she seemed to be changing her previous tune. When we asked the Oscar winner and Best Actress CCMA nominee for “Young Adult” if she’d filmed the epic fight sequence, she didn’t seem too keen to divulge any details.
“Yeah,” she admitted, “but I don’t want to talk about it.”
Why didn’t Theron want to talk about it? Did the fight not end in her favor?
“I don’t want to talk about it. No! No, it’s going to be a surprise,” she said, resisting our probing questions. “Dammit, I give you way too much. People have to pay money to go see the movie to see what happens.”
Theron finally relented a bit and revealed that Stewart’s Snow White does, indeed, kick some ass.
“She was a good fight,” Theron said. “She was a good fight. The bitch brought it! There you go. Now you have something.”
Stick with MTV News all night for the 2012 Critics’ Choice Awards winners, and don’t miss all the fashion from the red carpet!

Twilight stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are to be turned into dolls for a new toy range based on their wedding in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1. The two actors, who are a real life couple, are to be the feature of a new set of Twilight toys released by Barbie manufacturer Mattel, reported Contactmusic.
The pair will be miniaturised wearing the same outfits they don at their wedding as Edward Cullen and Bella Swan in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1.
The dolls will be released in February and will be unveiled alongside a shirtless Taylor Lautner, who plays werewolf Jacob Black and each doll will be priced at USD 29.95.
The couple are not the first celebrities to be turned into a special wedding doll, Pippa Middleton, the sister of Britain’s Duchess Catherine, was turned into a tiny model donning the Alexander McQueen dress she wore to her sibling’s nuptials to Prince William last year.
Manufacturers Herobuilders.com also offer a model of Kate Middleton in her own McQueen gown.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are reportedly back in LA after spending some quality time together in The Big Apple. The Twilight co-stars, and real-life couple, seemingly couldn’t wait to get home.
Pattinson and Stewart have been spending a ton of time together lately, debunking those pesky break up rumors! The adorable couple hit LA, and soon after were spied at their favorite hot spot, The Soho House.
One fan who spotted the famous pair took to her Twitter account with some details. “Last night Robsten were adorbs as always. [It] was hard to maintain composure,” she tweeted.
It’s good to hear that Rob and Kristen are happy and doing well. The couple, who have always been very private, never seem to let gossip, fans, or the paparazzi get them down. They’re obviously in love, and focused on making their relationship work. Perhaps, more Hollywood couples could learn a lesson from Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are a really friendly couple, according to one of their Breaking Dawn co-stars anyway. Mia Maestro had nothing but good things to say about the two of them in a recent interview.
According to a report from Hollywood Life, Maestro, while incredibly cautious about referring to Rob and Kristen as an ‘official’ couple (Do you think their co-stars have been cautioned not to say too much about them?), she did call the Twilight couple ‘super open’ and ‘super friendly.’
It seems that while on the set of Breaking Dawn Part 1, the cast and crew got together and cooked and ate as a group. Maestro said that Rob and Kristen always took part in this activity, and that Kristen Stewart was definitely the cook in the relationship. While it’s unknown whether or not that means Rob cooked and it was awful–or he simply wasn’t up for giving it a try–it’s an interesting little tidbit of knowledge about their relationship.
Maestro went on to say that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart’s behavior on set was beyond amicable. Although serious about their work, they didn’t exude an air of being above the other actors.
It’s nice to hear that Rob and Kristen are as nice on set as they seem to be in person. Rather reserved, but certainly not self-absorbed, they have fun with the cast and crew and make friends of their co-workers.
Mia Maestro plays the role of Carmen of the Denali Coven in bothBreaking Dawn Part 1 and Breaking Dawn Part 2, so perhaps she’ll share more about Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson as time goes on. One can learn a lot about their co-stars when making two consecutive films together!
Are you surprised to learn that Kristen and Rob are friendly and open while on set?
