THE 10 SCARIEST TWILIGHT CRAFTS
www.blogs.villagevoice.com: A new film about death and sexual restraint comes out this month. You may have heard of it–Twilight? The second installment in the vampire series, New Moon, features a meaty werewolf constantly busting out of his clothes, and the ongoing unrequited lust–excuse us, love–of undead teen Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and “imprinted” human Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart). Think Bill Compton seething, “She is mine!” if you prefer True Blood.
We waded through this cesspool of iron-on decals and sticker kits to the darkest depths of angsty preteen obsession to dig out the most unsettling Twilight-themed items up for grabs. If Hot Topic can’t satiate your Edward Cullen needs, perhaps 10 of the 16,709 choices at large on Etsy will?
www.okmagazine.com: With the premiere of New Moon 10 days away, it feels like the way of the world, or at least the box office, has turned into a Twi-or-die situation. Does the name Carlisle Cullen ring a bell? How about the traditions of the Quileute tribe? If this jargon doesn’t register, have no fear! Whether the ultimate Twi-hard or a vampire skeptic, OK!’s refresher course will prepare you to fool friends and take a bite out of the New Moon action.
KIWIS HAVE MIDNIGHT MADNESS
www.news.au.com: And Queenslanders have fallen for the vampire-based Twilight love story harder than the rest of the nation, according to cinema pre-sales.
Pre-sales for the film, to be released in a special midnight screening this month, are rivalling those of Harry Potter and Sex and the City – previously Australia’s two highest pre-selling films.
Chermside’s Event Cinemas (formerly known as Birch Carroll and Coyle) has the highest ticket pre-sales in the nation, with staff scrambling to show it in multiple cinemas.
PATTINSON WANTS VAN SANT TO DIRECT BREAKING DAWN
www.mtv.com: “I probably shouldn’t say this,” Rob revealed to MTV News over the weekend, acknowledging that the wheels are slowly creeping into motion on “Breaking Dawn” getting made. “But I’ve heard that we’re going to shoot it in Portland.
“I think Gus Van Sant would be great to do it,” RPattz added, naming his dream director.
A double Oscar nominee for “Good Will Hunting” and last year’s “Milk,” Van Sant went to school in Portland, and has called the city home for many years while filming such movies as “Drugstore Cowboy,” “My Own Private Idaho” and the 2005 Kurt Cobain-quasi-biopic “Last Days.”
“He shoots everything in Portland,” reasoned the 23-year-old British heartthrob. “He’s good at making it look beautiful.”
