>>> it's the big draw at the box office and looking to make bigger bucks this holiday weekend. check it out.
>> the packs will fight. we've never been afraid of vampires.
>> we will fight.
>> this won't be the first time the kings rule. we'll join you.
>> we will stand with you.
>> so will we.
>> i'm with you, alex.
>> you'll sit with me across the table. okay. this one, it's making so much money.
>> worldwide it's already made $362 million.
>> that's why they broke the glass bowl .
>> because they can. forbidden love among the undead is very popular with the tween set. and apparently you, because you saw it as well.
>> i did like it. i thought it was entertaining. but i think it could have been put together with the first one. kristen stewart looked fabulous. you're supposed to look better as a vampire. she was gorgeous. let's talk about another one, though, lincoln, which is phenomenal. it put me in tears.
>> this is the anti-blockbuster, at least initially. but it's going to be the one with all the oscar buzz. daniel day lewis , if you've seen the trailer, you can see it online, remarkable. sally field as his wife. and she fought for that role. she had gotten that role ten years ago with steven spielberg , but she thought she had aged out. i think she's fantastic.
>> i think she's fantastic. i can't imagine anyone coming up to daniel day -lewis with best actor. he has defined lincoln for the angs.
>> although we'll see anthony hopkins as alfred hitchcock soon. but that's another story.
>> let's talk about another one getting a lot of buzz which is silver lining 's playbook. here's a clip.
>> i'm tired. i want to go.
>> no, no, no. we haven't even finished the salad yet. or the duck. i made the fire and ice cake.
>> i said i'm tired. are you going to walk me home or what?
>> you mean me?
>> yeah, you. are you going to walk me home?
>> you better be a gentleman.
>> i know, bradley cooper and jennifer lawrence , two people who are really hot right now. this is one of the film festival movies that debuted in the fall. it already got big buzz for being an oscar contender, but also a great story. complicated guy, bradley cooper , who lost his wife to another guy and he went to a mental institution . now he's all troubled, as you might be. jennifer lawrence has her troubles. an interesting love story .
>> i thought it was really good, too. very, very good movie. i haven't seen this one, but i'm such a fan of the books.
>> this is the prequel to the " lord of the rings " trilogy. if you are a fan of these movies, you know what the plot is. you don't care. but it's one of those things, cult following. the people who are fans of these films, this is searching for a treasure that was stolen, hobbits and elves and such. they've been talking about the cast are for years. another one of those triple-digit box office takes. december 14th it opens.
>> and talk about the box office take.
>> this is going to be a big one, too, i think we'll be talking oscars with this one, too. it opens december 25th . russell crowe , hathaway, hugh jackman . you know what's interesting, they actually sing in realtime in this film. they don't have the orchestra behind them. they don't sound that auto studio perfection. but that's going to add to the rawness of this film. this is not a pretty movie, it's a striking, dramatic, intense movie.
>> i can't wait to see
