How Do Rob’s, Kristen’s, (and Taylor’s) Movies Do in the Box Office Separately?

Unlike Robert Pattinson’s and Kristen Stewart’s first star vehicles outside of the Twilight franchise, Remember Me and The Runaways, respectively, Abduction was a genre film. Lautner got paid a lot of money to make it ($7.5 million), and, in return, it was supposed to make a lot of money. It wasn’t necessarily supposed to get beat in the box-office standings by a Harry Connick Jr. movie about sea life. 

If anything, Lautner’s weekend makes Pattinson look like the Twilight star to beat.While Remember Me didn’t impress at first, it actually made back half its budget in its opening weekend. In the end, it more than tripled the budget. Water for Elephants, likewise, was a legit hit for a drama, grossing nearly $120 million worldwide off a $38 million budget. 

Stewart, meanwhile, is still showing the least box-office potential of the Twilight trio. The Runaways was a heavilty promoted flop; Welcome to the Rileys grossed even less. Both, however, were small films. The truest test of her drawing power won’t come until next summer’s Snow White and the Huntsman. 

I don’t necessarily like this article, but I thought it was interesting to look at how the three of them do in their movies separately.  It’s looking like Remember Me will beat Abduction in the box office, but either way, I loved all of these movies and I don’t care about the numbers. :) All that matters is that the fans love them, and we do!

New Pics of KStew at SXSW 2010

These are the pictures Melissa and I took while standing outside the Paramount Theatre in Austin at Kristen’s premiere of The Runaways. Honestly, I was expecting a much bigger crowd, especially since we got there about ten minutes before the premiere started. Melissa and I were bolting to the front doors in order to see Kristen! (In a non-stalkerish way of course) It’s funny because I always thought I’d maintain my cool if I saw her or Rob. It seemed pretty easy, just hold my excitement inside, that way I wouldn’t freak them out if they actually saw me. Nope…not me, I kept hearing “OMG KRISTEN!!!!!” coming out of my mouth. Sweet jesus!..haha Such an amazing night though! One of the best!! :)


Here’s some pictures so you can see just how close we really were:
