New Moon, Oprah, and Will Ferrell’s paycheck

Jump to Comments

Ready are you for the weekend? How about Oprah stepping down in 2011? Didn’t see that one coming at all. Thanks for all your great Jeff Bridges feedback yesterday — I promise you won’t be disappointed with his efforts in Crazy Heart. (And yes, yes, next time we’ll include Starman in the poll!)  In other movie news, a new article in Forbes magazine cites movie stars as an investment —  as in,  if you invested in them what you’d get back in return — based on their salary. More on this later but for now, just know that the most overpaid star in Hollywood today if you factor in his big salary, is Will Ferrell. Just saying. And now we head to the cineplex.  Specifically flicks you might want to catch this very weekend. Maybe even tonite. And of course, you knew it was coming. It’s the elephant in the living room. Or rather the vampire in the living room. The movie franchise that makes hundred year old people very, very sexy.  It’s outsold just about every other movie opening out there — and fans are beyond excited. I’m talking of course about the Twilight Saga: New Moon. But before we get to today’s poll, I’ll mention what else is playing, because there are indeed a few other fun movies opening this weekend. How about Planet 51? This is an animated feature with the voices of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Gary Oldman and John Cleese. I’ll see that. Then you might want to check out The Blind Side which is probably going to make people feel really, really good. I cried during the trailer. Sandra Bullock stars. Nic Cage is in Bed Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans…and that’s a very controversial violent remake of another very controversial violent film. If you see it let us know what you think. Now back to New Moon. It’s the whole gang:  Edward, Bella and Jacob plus tons of  forbidden love and a whole new crew of werewolves and vampires. What could go wrong? Which leads me to wonder which of these stars might be the most genuinely interesting conversationalist? Voice your choice in today’s featured poll and tell us which of New Moon’s 3 stars would you most like to have lunch with?

1) Kristen Stewart

2) Taylor Lautner

3) Robert Pattinson
