For those who have been living under a rock for the last couple of months, Twilight is coming, so get ready. The teen angst supernatural drama features vampires, werewolves (well, not yet) and a young girl called Bella Swan (played by Kristen Stewart) who falls head over heels with one of the dazzling undead is an adaptation of one of the most popular young adult books since “Harry Potter”, by an author with an astonishingly similar story to J.K. Rowling.
The movie has already attracted a firestorm of attention, and the fires can only continue to rise, especially with sites like MTV fanning the flames through its “Twilight Tuesdays” campaign, not to mention the army of fan sites dedicated to the books. Last week, temperatures reached a new high as MTV aired the first fully completed scene from the movie (a clip from the Ballet Studio section, for those who have read it) at their movie awards, and right now, I’m not sure what I think. I’ve only read the book once so far (yes, I intend to read and re-read it, I fell hook, line and sinker for Stephenie Meyer’s story) so I’m not perfect on the details, but I do have an idea of what’s supposed to happen, and I’m not sure how in sync it is.
Of course, this makes no difference to everyone who DOESN’T expect adaptations to be spot on (Harry adaptations are the hardest to watch, the butchering, oh the butchering!) but just wants a good movie, and so far, I’m on the fence. Only a minute of uninterrupted footage has actually been released, and the trailer barely shows anything good, so right now, I’m waiting it out. In the mean time we have two new stills straight from DVD forum (which is complete German to me), one of which is pulled from the Ballet studio scene (above), and the other is a mystery (below).
From the same sequence as the first still, it seems to be further on in the fight between James (evil blond vampire with camera, played by Cam Gigandet) and Edward (hunky dreamboat “vegetarian” vampire, played by Harry Potter‘s Cedric Diggory, Robert Pattinson), where the action has heated up a bit. Expect to see more and more of these as the months roll by, because with the movie not out until the 12th of December, Twilighters need something to keep them going!
Oh, and to answer whether Bella’s worth the smashing or not, don’t worry, we all know she is!
