New Moon's Wolf Gang Can't Be Any Worse Than Twilight's Vegan Vampire Gang... Can It?

The Twilight masses flocked to the stores, teenage libidos frothing, to purchase their soft core Twilight DVDs, putting them in Dark Knight sales territory. Plus we've got word on the next movie's pretend bad boys.
The first day of Twilight DVD sales topped out at a little over 3 million, which is insane. God, these fem-vamps can seriously print their own money at this point.
Twilight is now in the upper echelon of best selling DVDs in the past few years, which includes Harry Potter and The Dark Knight. I stumbled upon one of the DVD extras, showing the "sweet vampire kiss." I have to say, this is almost better than the whimpering sexy puppy roll-around deleted scenes. Almost. The "O" face Edward gives whilst turning into a blood sucker is pretty amazing, at any rate:
Meanwhile, the news about the New Moon sequel is, move over Cullen vamps - the fake tough guys in the next flick are all werewolves. Sexy meaty werewolves, who may or may not actually be able to have sex (I don't know, I haven't read the next book yet, because... well, yeah).
But on the plus side, director Chris Weitz has decided to stick with a Native American cast - as he should, because the members of Jacob Black's tribe (Taylor Lautner) are also of Native American descent:
Spencer is Lakota (Sioux), Pelletier is Cree-Metis, Meraz is Purepecha (Tarasco), Gordon is Hualapai, and Houseman, who was discovered at an open casting call, is Cree.
So good on you, Twilight people - the rest of Hollywood should take a page from your casting choice.
Fingers crossed this pack actually contains some intimidating actors, who can make a werewolf-vampire throwdown seem menacing - because as of right now I'm pretty sure the my grandma's church choir can take the Cullens.

There are few more dramatic places to find yourself than round a poker table when a high stakes game is reaching its conclusion. Every turn of a card could mean a shifting in fortunes and you can cut the tension with a knife. But for the eventual winner there’s an unbeatable feeling of euphoria, not just for the money being won but for the fact that opponents have been vanquished. Read more
It’s hard to find a person who didn’t like 2012’s Dredd, a film that stands alongside RoboCop as the ultra-violent, dystopic film fans needed at the time, but a sequel to the movie hasn’t been forthcoming; in fact, over the past few years, the likelihood of a second outing for Olivia Thirlby and Karl Urban’s chin has hovered around zero.
