The Twilight Saga

“What if I’m not the hero, what if I’m the bad guy?”

Twilight was one of 2008 biggest movies and in November, New Moon the next instalment of the saga hits our screens. This movie should be darker more emotional and more intense than Twilight.
If you haven’t heard the hype surrounding The Twilight Saga where have you been, go and rent the film and buy the books and see what you think you might just fall in love with Edward Cullen yourself?

These are a few things director of Twilight, Catherine Hardwicke could have included in the film. I know this upset some fans.

*Why did James bite Bella on the forearm not her hand?
*Why didn’t Bella and Edward wear matching outfits in the meadow scene?
*Why are Jasper and Rosalie Cullen’s and not Hale’s?
*Why did they change/cut out the meadow scene?
*Why was it never mentioned that Jasper has a gift?

It will also be interesting when New Moon hits cinemas how it is perceived by the fans, with a new director in Chris Weitz (American Pie) what can we expect? In a letter from the director himself addressing the fans Chris states that

“I will devote myself to making the very best and most faithful version of New Moon that can be brought to the screen. To those who doubt that as a male director I can capture Bella’s experience, I can only say that emotion is universal and that my work has often involved working with some of the most talented actresses in the world.

For the rest, the proof will be in the pudding, But I promise to remain responsive to your hopes and fears.

I thank you for this opportunity and for your faith”. [1]

The third instalment of the saga Eclipse is due for release in 2010 and will be directed by David Sade when Stephenie Meyer was asked what she thought of this she stated

“I am thrilled that David Slade will be directing Eclipse. He’s a visionary filmmaker who has so much to offer this franchise. From the beginning, we’ve been blessed with wonderful directorial talent for the Twilight Saga, and I’m so happy that Eclipse will be carrying on with that tradition.”[2]

Breaking Dawn the fourth instalment of the series will be made into a film but it is unclear when this is due to happen, this could be due to Robert Pattinson’s busy schedule. New Moon and Eclipse are also due to be filmed pretty much back to back so this could be why a date for filming Breaking Dawn hasn’t been nailed down yet. The actors will also need a well deserved break before filming the hardest and most demanding of the saga. In my opinion Breaking Dawn should be split into two films as it is a huge book and being the last in the Saga it needs to be finished off flawlessly.

When New Moon is released in cinemas in November sides will have to be picked are you Team Edward or Team Jacob?

    I may be in my 30’s and this may potentially be a book/film franchise aimed at the younger audience, but im hooked.
    First read the books as recommended by a good friend, loved them. Very intense and the romance/passion element is written superbly. Utterly believable, allbeit a little over the top at times, and completely absorbing.
    As always i prefer the books to the films. You can never quite get the whole story into a film. What may be “cut-able” to a director may be infinately important to a reader. You can never please all the people all the time.

    I did feel let down by Twilight, overall felt rushed and almost childish to me. Seemed to rely on people having read the book to fill in the blanks for themselves.

    However i am looking forward to seeing New Moon and hope to find a more mature film that can handle the darkly intense emotion with sympathy.

    Oh and for the record i’m team Edward all the way!
