Robert Pattinson's Cosmopolis gathers more attention for the win in MTV Movie Brawl


The main post has a lot going on and I wanted you guys to read this so a fresh post it is.

Tighter than Kim Kardashian's prenup and possibly just as viciously fought, MTV's 2012 Movie Brawl finally closed voting at 5 p.m. today. The result, debated and clawed over throughout Twitterland, Facebook and the blogosphere, is now in: The battle royale that was Cosmopolis v The Hunger Games is over - and Cosmopolis won!

After more than 3 million votes, Cosmopolis swung the day with a decisive 53.78 % win over the 46.22 % managed by The Hunger Games (THG). Earlier rounds before the two-film face-off included: Ridley Scott's Prometheus, Daniel Radcliffe's Woman in Black, Bel Ami (RPattz again), Dark Knight Rises, Snow White and The Huntsman, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, and even Breaking Dawn Part 2. But eventually the final contenders came down to THG and the leading man of the Twilight Saga franchise - Robert Pattinson. But, of course, only one movie can rule them all. And, as it turns out - that movie was David Cronenberg's highly anticipated Cosmopolis.

The road to the top wasn't pretty though. Closer than close percentages between Cosmopolis and THG saw both films slug it out for front position with THG leading a lot of the time, until fierce voting by RPattz's fanbase forced a 180. Figures hovered around the 48.5 to 51% mark for most of the brawl. 24 hours before the final day of the contest, Cosmopolis malingered in sorry second to THG, holding at 48.82 % at 10 p.m. (ET) while TGH led the way at 51.18%.

But by today's final countdown, less than 11 hours later, THG's lead was clearly fading. Today at 06:25 a.m. (ET) Cosmopolis pushed up to 49.58% while THG hung on at 50.42 %. Then, today, less than 6 hours later, at midday (ET), Cosmopolis high-kicked into the lead at 52.24 %, while THG held at 47.76%. Two and a half hours before MTV rang the bell, at 2:30 p.m. (ET), Cosmopolis's lead was well established at 53.14 % with THG flagging at 46.86%. Then, a final push by Pattinson fans drove the lead up to 53.78% - and only one was left standing.
Up and down the comments page at MTV's 2012 Movie Brawl, a war of words raged between the two camps. Accusations of cheating, rigging, and hacking went back and forth across the blogosphere - but in the end the result was clear and perfectly fair. Here's the amazing part: Even without a trailer, promotion, or any of the vast resources Lionsgate has thrown at THG; the passion and affection Pattinson fans have for a young actor on the verge of definitively proving his serious acting mettle on the world stage - delivered an indie film called Cosmopolis to Victory.

David and Goliath, eat your heart out.
