I mentioned a few weeks ago what a mistake it was for the Twilight filmmakers to follow author Stephenie Meyer’s New Moon novel too closely and for losing their minds for having Edward go awol for much of the Twilight sequel: The Twilight Saga: New Moon. I mean, hello? Why was Twilight such a huge success? Exactly. So here you go, the LA Times says the movie suffers because of the lack of Edward and his full on love for Bella. What a shocker. Christ, I’m not even a teenage gal but this is what the gals want so what were the money grubbing filmmakers thinking?
Not that this will effect ticket sales. The Twilight Saga: New Moon has sold the highest pre sales tickets in American history. Teenage heart throbs only come once in a generation, so please, put Edward in the picture.
It is also sad to hear from Indiewire that the gals and women who backed Twilight will be left in the cold once more as another movie for the boys gets churned out. It happens all the time of course but this time it makes no sense when female fans proved to be the force behind Twilight’s success. And with Mr. Pattinson as THE heartthrob phenomena of more than a decade (he’s the real deal. e.g. John Travolta and Grease), producers choose to ignore and milk it. But none of this matters. These films are huge and the next one will be huge -the fan base is there, the PR is massive. Us gals get let down again -it’s like another bad date.
