Twilight Comes Early!

Time for a new poster! Twilight comes early!News flash! Teenage girls all over America have been shitting themselves with anticipation over the big screen adaptation of the phenomenon known as Twilight!

As a means to quell the messy epidemic, Warner Brothers has bumped up the release date for the Catherine Hardwicke film to November 21, 2008, instead of in December as originally planned.

From the press release:

“When Warner Bros. decided to move HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE to the summer of 2009, we saw a unique opportunity to slot in our film which has been gaining tremendous awareness and momentum over the past several months,” said Rob Friedman, Co-Chairman and CEO of Summit Entertainment. “We by no means are trying to fill the shoes of the incredible POTTER franchise for 2008, rather we are just looking to bring the fans of Stephenie Meyer’s incredible book series the film as soon possible from a programming perspective.”

Starring Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart in the thriller-romance based on Stephenie Meyer’s publishing phenomenon, the film is directed by Catherine Hardwicke from a script by Melissa Rosenberg (STEP UP). Karen Rosenfelt (DEVIL WEARS PRADA), Greg Mooradian and Wyck Godfrey will produce along with Mark Morgan via his Maverick Films banner.

TWILIGHT tells the story of 17-year-old Bella Swan (Stewart) who moves to the small town of Forks, Washington to live with her father, and becomes drawn to Edward Cullen (Pattinson), a pale, mysterious classmate who seems determined to push her away. But neither can deny the attraction that pulls them together…even when Edward confides that he and his family are vampires. Their unorthodox romance puts her in physical danger when Edward’s nemesis comes to town and sets his sights on Bella.

Keep it right here for more on Twilight as it inevitably comes.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    I am going to see this movie just because i believe the evil vampire trio got their wardrobe from the Ghost Rider set.

  • Cash Bailey

    Oh boy…

    I was really hoping this site could simply avoid anything related to this movie.

    “Pre-judging”? Damn right I am. I bet it makes THE COVENANT look like INSIDE.

    The clip that was shown at comic-con is disturbing. I mean I knew those books had epic fangirl followings but…damn. Every time the lead guy even blinked in that clip, those girls were deafening the unfortunate schmucks next to them.

    The only characters who look interesting are the baddies, which is funny since the blonde villain vampire is the ‘bad guy’ from Never Back Down.

    “My god! That poster is soooooooooooo deep!” Where the hell do these girls come up with this shit? From all the previews and scenes we’ve seen recently, not one character has chemistry with another cast mate.

    • Chainsaw

      Haven’t you heard, Kryten? Kids these days don’t have time for chemistry. They’re too busy texting their friends and trying to figure out why they hate their friends soooooo muuuuuchhhh.

  • Chainsaw

    So, MMT and Repo get buried, and this one actually gets moved UP?!

    Man, fuck the kids.

  • Terminal

    Movie is gonna bank.

    Of course they bumped it up. They no longer have any competition from Mr. Potter in November (that one was just pushed to July ’09), so it makes sense to release it sooner. The sooner it’s out there, the quicker they can make a metric fuckton of cash from crazy fangirls.
