'Twilight Saga' (2008-2011)

Teens adored 2010's Eclipse, directed by David Slade, and 2009's New Moon, helmed by Chris Weitz, but Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke was the first to tackle the task of bringing the hugely popular vampire novel series to life onscreen, and bringing Twi-hards (both Team Edward and Team Jacob!) to the nation's multiplexes in droves. The films capture the suspense that Stephenie Meyer wove into her books, and the chemistry between Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart anchors all the films.
