#Throwback: 27th November, 2008!

27th November, 2008. The day we, Malaysians, had our first taste of the pop culture phenomenon we call Twilight. It was 8 years ago when the craze swept the nation, and thus we became emotionally invested in Edward Cullen, Bella Swan, Jacob Black, the Cullen clan, the Quileute shapeshifters, the Swan family, and the entire universe of sparkling vampires.
This unorthodox vampire movie, based on the novel written by Stephenie Meyer (#Queen), introduced us then-quite-unknown actors like Robert Pattinson (who has quite a career after this one, besides being in Harry Potter before Twilight, and also a Teen Choice Award winner), Kristen Stewart (An outstanding film career, and a Cesar Award winner) and Taylor Lautner (he's on TV, and also an MTV Movie Award winner). We also got to say hi to many more actors along the way throughout the entire 4-movie saga, some iconic ones, like Anna Kendrick, Bryce Dallas Howard, Dakota Fanning (but we all already know her), Charlie Bewley, Nikki Reed…

'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk' starring Kristen Stewart

Director Ang Lee is back with a new film, starring Joe Alwyn, Garrett Hedlund, Vin Diesel, and our girl, Kristen Stewart. It's titles Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk, based on a novel.

The film is told from the point of view of 19-year-old private Billy Lynn (newcomer Joe Alwyn) who, along with his fellow soldiers in Bravo Squad, becomes a hero after a harrowing Iraq battle and is brought home temporarily for a victory tour.  Through flashbacks, culminating at the spectacular halftime show of the Thanksgiving Day football game, the film reveals what really happened to the squad – contrasting the realities of the war with America’s perceptions.  The film also stars Kristen Stewart, Chris Tucker, Garrett Hedlund, with Vin Diesel, and Steve Martin.
Released by Sony Pictures, the film premieres 10th November 2016.
