“The Twilight Saga” has taken the number one spot on the HitFix Movie Power Rankings List and it’s thanks to the news about Bill Condon’s Breaking Dawn negotiations. Here is what HitFix had to say:
Did it really take three weeks for “The Twilight Saga” to hit the top spot on HitFix’s movie power rankings? It must have been a rare slow period, because there’s always so much going on in the “Twilight”-world you could easily argue it should be No. 1 every week. This edition is completely warranted, however, as word leaked last week that Bill Condon is the front runner to direct back-to-back installments of the series’ final chapter (so far at least), “Breaking Dawn.”
The Oscar-winning filmmaker has “Dreamgirls,” “Kinsey,” “Gods and Monsters” to his credit as well as producing the acclaimed 81st Academy Awards. He also is the most critically acclaimed filmmaker to take the reins of the franchise yet and could help shepherd some of the more uneven performances that have been scattered throughout the first two films. The deal isn’t done, but “Twilight” fans should be very satisfied and excited over Condon’s willingness to tackle the most challenging book in the series. More intriguing is whether they’ll be able to keep any changes secret with the first “Dawn” not expected till holiday 2012. We’ll see.
