It has certainly been an awesome summer for the very male-centered super hero franchises,- making every dude wish they could fly and punch a hole through stuff, while our teenage girls patiently wait to draw lines: Team Edward or Team Jacob. The movie that brought the vampire genre back will be starting its two movie finales with Twilight:Breaking Dawn Part 1. When we last left out teenage monsters we had a vampire engagement and a very pouty werewolf. The finale of the franchise promises to be a bit darker dealing with sex, a marriage, and dare I even say…….. a baby. I don’t know if we are talking about Twilight or an episode of
Maury! All jokes aside I am really looking forward to this movie. Twilight has done something that few movies in it’s genre could do: totally connect to its audience without taking itself too seriously. When we hear Twilight we know there will be some very pretty vampires, a helpless damsel, and a lot of shirtless werewolves. A cocktail that is guaranteed to make every adolescent female run to the theaters.
Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 opens November 18 2011. Starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, and Dakota Fanning. Directed by Bill Condon.
