Bella Swan is sent to live with her father in the rainy northwest, while there she meets a fascinating new love interest. However, Edward Cullen is not your average teenager. He has super-strength, acute hearing, lightning fast reflexes, but he is not quite human. Edward is a vampire. Will that matter to Bella?
Edward is over a hundred years old and part of a small coven of vampires in Washington State, who have forsaken the taste for human blood. Edward’s secret is not enough to scare away Bella as her attraction for him grows. Another group of vampires is hot on Edward’s trail; sparks will fly and heads will roll in this non-typical teen romance.
Starring: Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen), Kirsten Stewart (Bella Swan), Cam Gigandet, Edi Gathegi, Rachelle Lefevre
Release Date: November 21, 2008
There is quite a buzz surrounding this film. “Twilight,” is the first in a series of films based on a book by Stephenie Meyer. Already a sequel is in the works as there is projections of a 20 million take for the first opening weekend based on 3.5 million trailer reviews by fans.
The initial trailer for “Twilight,” was shown prior to screenings of “Quarantine,” and mixed emotions abounded. Apparently in one California theatre women squealed in delight at the appearance of the “Twilight,” trailer while men booed and hissed (Wow…).
“Twilight,” seems to be dividing movie audiences along gender lines as the film is focusing more on a romantic angle rather than the gore or scare factor.
“Twilight,” is example of a film that is appealing to a specific target audience. The female tweens (10-12 year olds), teenagers, and early twenty-somethings are sure to enjoy this film, while also appealing to a more sensitive male audience. Many boyfriends and discerning females are sure to go for a washroom break only to sneak into showings of “JCVD,” and “Quantum of Solace,” and other more entertaining fare during “Twilight,” showings.
