We have been giving a lot of love lately to the upcoming film Twilight, which is based on the immensely successful series of books by Stephenie Meyer. I must say, I ordered up this intensified coverage because I have never before seen a rabid fanbase such as this one, not since LOTR, Harry Potter or even Star Wars or Star Trek — these “Twilighters”, as they like to call themselves, are something else entirely. With that in mind, we are absolutely interested in keeping an eye on Twilight, as there must be something to it, whether or not we fully understand what that is yet or not.
Above you will find the first teaser trailer for the film adaptation, which stars Kristen Stewart (Into the Wild) as a young girl who falls in love with a vampire, played by Harry Potter alum Robert Pattinson. Catherine Hardwicke, who previously directed Lords of Dogtown and The Nativity Story, is in the directors chair. The film will see a theatrical release on December 12, 2008. It is currently still in the filming stages of production.
Stay tuned right here to FSR, as we will be bringing you updates on Twilight as they become available. Also, take a look at the first official cast photo below:
