Twilight Graces EW Cover

Last year Blood & Chocolate taught us that no matter how good your source material is, any filmmaker can turn it into a mind numbing laugh-a-thon suited only for people who believe all of Europe is populated by well dressed Goths and powered by Absinthe.

So, does Twilight share that fate? It is certainly geared towards young women so it may hit all those marks, but what about fans of the books? After seeing the latest cover of Entertainment Weekly over at author Stephenie Meyer’s official blog, I am not sure what to think…

Which one is the chick?

Like our own Woman in Black says, “It’s for the kids,” so I cannot be too harsh on it … until the Twilight Dinner for Fiends!

    Twilight, that’s the first time I’ve been called a jerk for pointing out someone doesn’t know haw to put a belt on. I LOL’ed when I read that, sorry to harsh your buzz, so to speak. I am aware the the people who did the pic probably slid it over purposely for a better shot. And purposely or not, some find it ridiculous and have the uncontrolable urge to ridicule, while others like yourself find it hot. this will have an audience for sure, but I won’t be there. I’ll be home crying myself to sleep, wishing I was as pasty-skinned and dorky looking as that guy.
    And we’re all gat for something, like Cobain said. I’m gay for the ladies and Johnny Walker Black.

    • Spaceshark

      Well CLEARLY the belt buckle is important to the plot of the movie. It’s prolly’ magical, like that apple the chick is holding. I bet they’re ancient artifacts that will ensure HEATH LEDGER GETTING A NOMINATION AT THE ACADEMY AWARDS AND WINNING IT LIKE THE GODS HAVE PLANNED!!!!!!!

  • Blockbuster

    Yeah…I can too…I’m just a lesbian trapped in a guy’s body…the oldest in the book…but doesn’t make it any less true. Uhhhh…yeah…anyway, just get tired of the people talking smack about other people…oh wait…that’s what WE’RE DOING. Nevermind….

    • Spaceshark

      I’m actually a Martian Manatee trapped inside a regular Space Shark.

  • Blockbuster

    YAY!!! Yet another personal attack on people commenting on a gay (metrosexual) goth looking supposed vampire. Dumbass.

    • Uncle Creepy

      Words, man. Just words. Besides, it makes it it easy to pin out the idiots in a crowd. :)

  • Chainsaw

    Jables was right…fuck the kids!

    :D

    Yeah, I’m old and bitter.

  • Kryten Syxx

    Yes, that’s the same film. Don’t forget about the “totally deep” poster that MTV was showing off too.

    • DavidFullam

      I never saw that poster. Maybe that’s a good thing!

    • twilight

      It’s not a good thing.
      Just because you don’t like certain pictures doesn’t mean you won’t like the movie.

      and if you don’t like Twilight.. don’t you think your a little old to be watching MTV.. it is MADE for teenagers!

      • DavidFullam

        Well for one thing, I don’t watch MTV. Second, I have never been a fan of the whole goth vampire thing, and have never heard of the books this is based on. I can tell you for certain, this is not a film that would appeal to me.

  • DavidFullam

    How gay. Was this the film DC was goofing on awhile back? RE: the two kids flying on wires around a tree?

    • Uncle Creepy

      Yep! That was it!

      • twilight

        Wow Uncle Creepy good answer!?

        ..but, yeah, it is. Don’t jugde it by that one scene, it makes much more sense in the whole picture.

        • Uncle Creepy

          Didn’t think I had to get into much more detail. Thanks, Twilight!

  • Terminal

    I’m blinded by the gayness.

    • twilight

      WOW!! I’m blinded by YOUR gayness.

      Your that kind of guy.. WOW!! Who isn’t!?

      • Spaceshark

        So…we’re ALL gay?

        • Uncle Creepy

          “What else could I say? Everyone is gay.” — Kurt Cobain, All Apologies

          • Spaceshark

            Fuck yeah, I can live with that.

      • Terminal

        Oh get a sense of humor for god sake, I was kidding around. Don’t be one of THOSE people. See? Kidding. From now on I’ll check with you before posting, with this I’ll say “My my that’s quite terrible.” Ugh.

    • The Woman In Black

      I’m not sure how a guy and girl embracing can be called “gay” but whatever …

      • Spaceshark

        It is when the girl looks like a beard.

  • frank_dracman

    What’s up with the belt buckle being waaayyy over to the side? Is this paticular vampire so stupid he can’t dress himself properly? I’m glad I saw it here first, as I would have laughed out loud if I saw it in line at the store while buying some Ho-Ho’s.

    • twilight

      This is a picture of the actors like 4 months after filming.. and Rob Pattinson knows how to dress himself [jerk!], it’s called stylists.. they are usually the ones who get to pick what the models wear.

      I think someones jealous.

  • Kryten Syxx

    Maybe I should have been more specific…
    It’s for the tween girls with the mindset that they’ll be swept off their feet by a mysterious and overly handsome man.

    • The Woman In Black

      Exactly! If I were 13 again, you can be sure I’d be there opening day with all my friends.

  • G.D.

    “It’s for kids” is not an excuse.

    Monster Squad.
    The Goonies.

    Not an excuse.

  • Spaceshark

    Being dead does NOT excuse his hair.

  • Blockbuster

    I’m scared. Truly, truly scared. Yeesh.

    • twilight

      Good, he is a vampire in the movie if you would like to know. [yeesh to you]

  • MagusMaleficus

    I think the books are OK, but I could see this flick being a steaming pile of shit.

  • Chainsaw

    First major mainstream magazine cover for a horror movie in ages and it’s for a tweener Vampire movie?

    WHAT A COUNTRY!!

  • Nomad

    We saw making of interviews for this at Fango. The vamps really do look like they have 16 lbs of cover up on.
