We all know it's coming, and it's coming soon. That big multi-million dollar movie phenomenon about vampires that caused the Harry Potter movie to be moved back like crazy?
Yeah, you know what I'm talking about. Twilight. I guess before I get into anything, I should add a disclaimer: I'm not a vampire lover, nor am I a Twilight fan. However, I do know that the movie is coming out and that it's creating quite a buzz. And, I have read the first book, but only after pressure from Steph, my sister and my co-workers among others to read it. It was...okay. Yes, the storyline is pretty compelling and the concept one of intrigue, but I just don't think it's written well enough to be considered 'the next Harry Potter' or anything similar. Apologies to the fans, I mean nothing personal!
If you have been living under a rock and know nothing about Twilight, here's the general premise: girl meets boy, girl and boy fall in love. But wait! Boy happens to be a vampire, and it gets a little complicated.
Now, since I'm not a big Twilight follower, I'm not terribly excited for the movie, and truth be told, the trailer didn't really look too promising to me. Nor did the leads look all too attractive. Kristen Stewart? Kinda average. Robert Pattinson? I remember him looking better in Harry Potter...
But then, I found the Vanity Fair photoshoot. And OMG they are gorgeous.
I love how Kristen is rocking Chucks with that amazing dress. She's totally stealing the spotlight.
I feel like Vanity Fair is working magic. This is one hot cast.
And, because we like music at SOS, here are a couple tracks that according to my sister, sum up Twilight:
The Spill Canvas - This is For Keeps
Joshua Radin & Schuyler Fisk - Paperweight
P.S. Hahaha can you tell I'm a Harry Potter fan?
