Man, I’m glad this came up during my shift cause I’ve been dying to talk about this movie for weeks. Now, if you click on the teaser image to your right for Catherine Hardwicke’s Twilight, you may understand why.
MTV’s Movie Blog got the first look at the poster for Twilight today, and to say it looks like yet another pretentious vampire movie is understating. It actually looks like the ultimate pretentious vampire movie. And here I thought we were doing so well with 30 Days of Night and the like, but no, there’s still a market for emo bloodsuckers. Great.
The aforementioned blog also learned from the film’s poster designer, an 18-year-old kid named Joey Lawrence (no, not that Joey Lawrence) that he’s signed on to design posters for the inevitable Twilight sequels as well. Joy.
Hopefully I’m proven wrong and this ends up being a fun vampire flick, but so far there’ve been zero signs of that.
