Movie Power Rankings: New 'Twilight' clips put 'Breaking Dawn' back on top
Where do 'Dark Knight Rises,' 'Hunger Games' and 'Tintin' end up?
The long-anticipated release of "Breaking Dawn" is only a couple of weeks away, and that makes it almost impossible to escape. We could fill this whole opening paragraph just with links to relevant stories and features, but we'll instead just focus on one thing: clips, and lots of them. Most fans know exactly what to expect from the film, but taking a little peek at pivotal scenes never hurt anyone. The best thing for Twi-Hards is that they get to do this all over again for one last time next fall. In the meantime, they can imagine seeing Taylor Lautner in a Gus Van Sant film. You know you're curious.
As for the rest of this week's list…
November 2, 2011
1. "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" (Last week: No. 3)
We should just re-name this month "Edwardvember" or something. And the 18th should be a national holiday.

These clips of Kellan Lutz, Luke Evans and Henry Cavill make the dudes from "300" look like a bunch of butterballs.

The Steve McQueen-directed pyscho-sexual drama, starring Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan, drew multiple nominations from the BIFA Awards.
