The Phenomenon

Posted in Twilight at 7:08 pm by Janet

Less than a week until the movie comes out! Twilight seems to be everywhere!

You can watch movie trailers and get more info on Stephenie Meyer’s website. Unlike Bridget, I don’t have my ticket yet. I’m debating a strategy. I really want to see the movie soon after, if not as soon as, it comes out, but I don’t want to deal with crowds. It’s playing at midnight Thursday at my local theater. Maybe the crowd will be fun. I’ll have to find out if I can even get tickets. I wonder if people will come dressed up. How would you even dress for such a thing?

I’m kind of nervous that the movie will ruin my mental image of the gorgeous vampires. The vampires are described as so perfect in the books. They don’t look that beautiful in the trailers. It’s really an impossible standard to live up to. Cedric Diggory, can you do it?

Apparently there were near riots when certain cast members made public appearances. You have to scroll down a bit to get to that part. On the way there’s other Twilight movie gossip, though.  http://www.perezhilton.com/category/twilight/

And, oh, I better get my ticket now for the 2009 Twilight Convention here in Chicago. Bridget, are you coming out here?

A final thought: remember when Bunnicula was the most famous vegetarian vampire?

    I know what you mean about movies ruining the mental images you have from the books. Edward the actor is not not not MY Edward.

    I have done some deep thinking and I am startled to realize that “my Edward” looks a lot like James Van Der Beek circa Dawson’s Creek. I don’t know why. I hardly ever even watched that show.

    I’ve never seen Dawson’s Creek! Is it free online anywhere? I feel like I’m missing out on a cultural phenomenon. I think my Edward looks a little bit like Spike from Buffy. Barrett says that’s his Edward too.
