Below you can watch the first trailer for a vampire movie called Twilight. The film is based on what I’ve heard is an outrageously popular book series that’s got sort of a teen romantic vampire goth vibe to it.
What, you’ve never heard of it? Well apparently millions of teenage girls have and they love the books, so this movie is going to make HUGE bank is my guess.
For higher res versions of the trailer head on over to MySpace.com.
Also, there’s nothing much there yet except for the following really really cheesy lines, which should be enough combined with the trailer above to give you a real sense of the story, but here’s the official site: TheTwilightMovie.com.
About three things I was absolutely positive.
First, Edward was a vampire.
Second, there was part of him – and I didn’t know how potent
that part might be – that thirsted for my blood.
And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably
in love with him.
Ohhhhh, shivers. A girl in love with the ultimate “bad boy.”
Although I think this movie will seem to come out of nowhere to most people and be a gigantic hit, unless you’re firmly in the target audience of young teen girls I’m betting it’ll be painful to watch.
Twilight arrives at theaters on December 12th, 2008.
