Today on Oprah, the full trailer of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse debuted. Unlike its predecessors, this one may spark your curiosity (or not), but so far it looks better then Twilight and New Moon. Here’s the run down for those of you who do not read the books: In this part of the series the Cullens (Edward and his family), and their friends, go to war against the Volturi and Newborn Vamps that Victoria (Bryce Dallas Howard) has so graciously created to try and take out the “good” vampires…and that’s all I’m going to say on the matter. I’m a huge fan of the books but have been extreemly disappointed in the movies thus far. But honestly, I must say that this trailer has been by far the most exciting. Now, I’m not putting all my faith into the movie yet and there is no way in hell I will be seeing the movie opening night this time around, but I am looking forward to it and hope this movie is just as exciting as the book. Let me know your thoughts on the trailer…Does it look better then Twilight and New Moon? Will it step up to the standards the book has set?
I’m not going to lie. I am a huge fan of the Twilight Series…that is, the book series. The movies, not so much. Yeah, sure they’re OK to go and see with my teenage neighbors or watch the original movie alone at night when I’m feeling sorry for myself and need a semi-romantic movie to cry too. To be honest, the first movie (Twilight) was just OK, the second (New Moon) was a downright disgrace. And now I’m dreading how Eclipse, directed by David Slade, will turn out. Here’s the low-down on Eclipse, and it’s very simple: Bella (Kristen Stewart) loves Edward. Edward (Robert Pattinson) loves Bella. Jacob (Taylor Lautner) loves Bella. Bella does not love Jacob. Enter a crazed, red-headed vampire, Vicoria (Bryce Dallas Howard who is replacing Rachelle Lefevre) and some warewolf-on-vampire action to win Bella over, and we have your basic love triangle (minus the vampire and wolf thing). Will I see the movie? Yes. Will I see it opening night (June 30, 2010)? Nope. Did that last time and wanted to kill myself…Do I expect great things from this movie? No way, but I still want to see it. Check out the trailer below and let me know your thoughts.
With New Moon news coming at us everyday it is a delight when the real world rears it’s ugly head. In a realm of bedazzled, glittery vampires and werewolves that look like cartoons, this writer relishes a few moments of anarchy. It is no secret that Christine Foley and myself grew up when the sun destroyed a vampire, and Victorian eveningwear was the norm and second to to none in decadence and beauty. With almost every vampire’s sexuality called into play, the queen of vamp’s, Anne Rice and the founding father of our modern day dilemma, Dracula, were held to a different standard than these OC vampires polluting our TV’s and silver screens. So it is with great pleasure I must report that FINALLY these damned pirates have been brought to justice.According to Popeater-
22-year-old Samantha Tumpach claims she shot only a few minutes of footage, none of which she intended to pirate.
Tumpach says she was recording her sister’s 29th birthday party, which took place at the theater – much of the tape features her relatives singing “Happy Birthday.” A few minutes of the feature film were captured, however, and the young woman was arrested when a theater employee noticed Tumpach recording.
The manager decided to press charges, but Tumpach says, “It was a big thing over nothing. We were just messing around. Everyone is so surprised it got this far.”
Justice never tasted so sweet. These pirates are destroying our beloved moviegoing experience with their fiendish, Jack Sparrow-like ways. Increasing ticket prices and inflating studio costs, we finally can begin the revolution. And it begins with YOU, Samantha Tumpach……
No, seriously though, I hate Twilight but this story is fucken rediculous…
We at nerd bastards don’t normally obsess over box office numbers, we generally don’t care. However, we can’t ignore the utter travesty that has happened over the past few days. Twilight: New Moon earned $26.27 million in midnight screenings which annihilated the previous record of $22.2 held by Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince. New Moon has also claimed the biggest sales for opening day. Selling roughly $71 million worth of tickets which sadly kicks the ass of the $67 million The Dark Knight made (previous record holder). Really, this is just crap. How the hell does a horrible, visual companion to a horribly written book do this well? How many new born babies did Stephenie Meyer offer up in sacrifice to get this franchise to reach such super cult status? Just as I and many other Twilight haters were about to gauge our hearts out with a rusty spoon we’ve just been informed that New Moon did not take the biggest and most important record of opening weekend sales. With a $140 million it will come in third place in the biggest record holder scale. It will settle behind Spiderman 3 (2nd) with $148 million and The Dark Knight (First) with 155.34 Million . It’s a case of Twilight fans winning a few battles but not winning the war. However, the next installment of the Twilight saga: Eclipse is poised to unleash hell on earth.
Summit Entertainment has unleashed a batch of images from its upcoming The Twilight Saga: New Moon, most of which you’ve seen before, but a few you haven’t, including a behind-the-scenes image of director Chris Weitz on the set with star Kristen Stewart.
Would I lose the respect of our readers if I said Twilight is a guilty pleasure of mine? Yes I know it’s a romance novel for tween girls but Kristen Stewarts Hot and Vampires are always cool, even if they do sparkle.
