I think it's obvious that The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part I, is the most highly anticipated film of 2011 around here at Team-Twilight. At least we can finally say that Breaking Dawn comes out THIS year! Lots of outlets are announcing the films they are most looking forward to this year, and, as you'd expect, Breaking Dawn makes a lot of the lists! In addition, Robert Pattinson's upcoming film Water for Elephants and Taylor Lautner's Abduction are also making the rounds on these lists.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 1

The Twilight world waits with bated breath for the latest in the ongoing saga. Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) are finally professing their love for all to hear and giving that marriage thing a shot. And from what we've seen so far, it looks like their Brazilian honeymoon is going to be a steamy good time.

'Water for Elephants'

Release Date: April 22
Starring: Robert Pattinson, Reese Witherspoon, Christoph Waltz
The Scoop: Move over, Dumbo, because there's a new elephant movie in Hollywood these days and if the legion of Twi-Hards have anything to say about it, "Water for Elephants" is about to become the new gold standard in pachyderm cinema. That, of course, is because the lead role is being played by that brooding hair factory Robert Pattinson, whose famous locks are on full display in this period piece about a guy who joins a circus only to fall in love with the ringleader's wife (Reese Witherspoon in her first cougariffic role). The ringleader, though, is "Inglourious Basterds" bas***d Christoph Waltz, so RPattz just may be screwing around with the wrong guy. You know what they say: hair today, gone tomorrow. And yes, it's okay to hate us just a little for that one.

'The Help'

Release Date: Aug. 12
Starring: Emma Stone, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer
The Scoop: Fans getting worn out by the non-stop parade of high-octane blockbusters and 3-D summer tentpoles finally have another option in August when "The Help" arrives. Based on the popular period novel by Kathryn Stockett, "The Help" stars the always-awesome Emma Stone as a young girl learning the strange realities of adulthood in the Deep South of the early 1960s. She's joined by a terrific ensemble cast that includes Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and Cicely Tyson. Don't be surprised if you hear more about "The Help" when award season rolls around.


Release Date: Sept. 23
Starring: Taylor Lautner, Lily Collins, Alfred Molina
The Scoop: This is the moment all Twi-Hards have been waiting for: Taylor Lautner's first real attempt at carrying a movie as leading man. Or, man-child.LOL Whatever you want to call it. Ever since Lautner bulked up for "New Moon," he's been dubbed the next big thing by everyone in Hollywood, already commanding huge paydays for his films even though so far his main success has been in the cocoon of the "Twilight" franchise. In "Abduction," though, the whole thing is on his well-toned shoulders as Lautner plays a kid whose life takes a surreal turn when he sees his own face on a missing persons website. We think by the time "Abduction' is over, Lautner will have found at least one thing: an A-list career.

'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1'

Release Date: Nov. 18
Starring: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner
The Scoop: The gang is back for the penultimate entry in the most popular movie series of all time (at least according to its fans). Team Jacob and Team Edward may have had their issues in the past, but now everyone is on the same side: Team Baby, as the whole world decides to gang up on Bella and Edward's newborn and only the combined powers of vampires and love can save her. What happens next? Well, no doubt you already know from reading the novel by Stephenie Meyer a dozen times, but that's fine; the magic is in seeing how they pull it off onscreen. And bonus points this time if they manage to film the birth scene without causing us to pass out. Eleven months and counting…

"Breaking Dawn – Part 1," November 18
What, you say, everyone on your block knows how the "Twilight" saga ends? Well, sure, we know the plot. But do we know where "Part 1? will end and "Part 2? pick up? Do we know which characters some of the fresh franchise faces will be playing? Do we know how director Bill Condon will handle the famously bloody birth scene, and if it will even be in the first film? And heck, is there still a chance the movie could be released in 3-D? Questions, questions.

EmpireOnline: The Big 2011 Preview

Smelling salts at the ready, because April 22 sees the return of the mighty R.Pattz in Water For Elephants. Pattinson plays a veterinary student who throws in his studies after the death of his parents and runs away, finding himself in a traveling circus. There he falls for Marlena (Reese Witherspoon) – which would be fine were it not for her violent husband August (Christoph Waltz). This is based on the novel of the same name, is not a sequel to Like Water For Chocolate, and looks set to be a more grown-up effort for the once and future Edward Cullen.

September 23 sees Twilight's Taylor Lautner caught in an Abduction. He's a young man who finds his baby photo while browsing a missing person's website – as you do – and begins to suspect that the parents who raised him are not, in fact, his parents. The results should be thriller-y, with support from Sigourney Weaver, Alfred Molina, Maria Bello, Jason Isaacs and the Millenium Trilogy's Michael Nyqvist. Can Lautner succeed stripped of his werewolf trappings and obsession with Bella? This could be the test.

It's the Big One on November 18, which sees Edward and Bella finally get it on in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. The fourth instalment will cover only the first half of the fourth (and final) Twilight book, and sees vampire Edward (Robert Pattinson) and human Bella (Kristen Stewart) finally tie the knot and go on honeymoon. However, some complications soon turn up in the shape of an unplanned pregnancy and…well, we'll say no more. But at least in this Twilight movie the plot might actually move forward for once. Fans will still have to wait until 2012 for the big finale, but that just gives them extra time to dream of Edward / Jacob / Bella (delete as appropriate) so they probably consider that a bright side.

LA Times: Seven intriguing movie storylines for 2011

The "Twilight" crowd, the morning after: They've branched out into other roles before. But 2011 will bring moments of truth for all three lead actors in the "Twilight" franchise: Robert Pattinson in the period circus drama "Water for Elephants" (coming in April), Taylor Lautner in the teen fugitive thriller "Abduction" (coming in September) and Kristen Stewart in the adaptation of Jack Kerouac's "On the Road" (date TBD). The last two movies in the franchise that made them famous are shooting now. Which of the trio can fashion the most productive post-Forks career?

"Water for Elephants" (April 22)

"I Am Legend" director Francis Lawrence aims to capture the magic in Sara Gruen's best-seller about a traveling circus. Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson put on the show, while Richard ("Fisher King") LaGravenese wrote the script that convinced "Inglourious Basterds" discovery Christoph Waltz that this was a better way to go than David Cronenberg's next picture.

Hollywood Crush: Our Top 5 Films For 2011

Water for Elephants

Movie buffs willing to give Rob the benefit of the doubt have been holding their breath to see him prove himself as a serious actor. We're pretty sure 2011 is the year he'll do just that. Yes, he'll be reprising his vampire persona in "Breaking Dawn" and showing a more serious side in the period piece "Bel Ami," but his role in our No. 3 film for 2011, "Water for Elephants," is what will solidify his place in Hollywood's shining spotlight.

It's hard not to be excited for the April 22 release. The film adaptation of Sara Gruen's No. 1 New York Times best selling novel follows Jacob Jankowski, a white collar veterinarian student who drops out of Cornell during his senior finals following a family tragedy. He finds himself accidentally joining the rag-tag Benzini Brothers Circus after jumping a midnight train and zig-zags across the country, making unlikely friends, finding forbidden love and seeing the dark side of the greatest show on earth. It's the stuff every good movie is made of. Oh, did we forget to mention that Rob looks smokin' hot, too?

The movie has already garnered a little bit of Oscar buzz for Rob's performance, and the trailer alone is enough to give you goose-bumps. Academy Award winners Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz helm the film with Rob, which promises to give you the same thrill of finding a prize in a box of Cracker Jacks.

MTV: 2011 Movie Pairs

Robert Pattinson & Reese Witherspoon in "Water for Elephants"
Sure, RPattz will once again share the screen opposite Kristen Stewart in 2011, but he's been mining the same limited "Twilight" material for a while now, and we're keen to see how he manages when his character has more emotional motivation than simply protecting his beloved.

While we enjoyed his turn in last year's romantic drama "Remember Me," a performance opposite the Oscar-winning Witherspoon in "Elephants" will mark Pattinson's biggest opportunity yet to establish himself as a formidable talent.

The first trailer mostly showcased RPattz in smoldering default mode. Can the 24-year-old Brit step it up? Can his chemistry with Witherspoon begin to compare, in fan's eyes, with the Bella-Edward-Jacob love triangle? Answers will arrive with the film's release in April.


Breaking Dawn can Wait. I am all over Water for Elephants. Wanna see Abduction too. Tongue
