Most Entertaining of 2012: The Cast of 'Twilight' is No. 1!
"The Twilight Saga" cast, which ranked No. 5 on “Extra’s” Entertainer of the Year list in 2011, comes in first place on our list this year!
Stephenie Meyer's bestselling novels -- about a girl named Bella Swan who falls in love with vampire Edward Cullen, while also forging a close friendship with werewolf Jacob Black -- made the tween set (and their mothers) swoon, launching a literary phenomenon in 2005 on a par with "Harry Potter."
The third film, "Eclipse," opened to huge numbers in 2010, grossing over $300 million domestically, while the fourth book, "Breaking Dawn," was split into two movies. "Part 1" -- which sees Bella and Edward finally get married and consummate their passion, resulting in an unexpected pregnancy -- opened November 18 to even bigger grosses.
With $751.1 million in the bank, the final installment, “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2,” already ranks as the most lucrative chapter in the vampire saga. What a nice way to say goodbye!
