Thanks to the folks over at BadTaste.it here are a couple of new posters for the upcoming film adaptation of Twilight. The posters match the look of the film, with muted colors tending towards almost black and white. The fans will surely like it which are parallel to the movie’s theme.
See the TRAILER and MOVIE POSTERS inside this post. Let the insanity begin.
Although I’m not a fan, I’ve had arguments with people who think this movie won’t do very well when it opens. While I won’t predict a number, I think Twilight is going to do HUGE box office numbers – you just wait and see. I love that the trailer is basically “twilight in 2 minutes” giving all the major plot points away. Seriously.
So, just an observation.

I think I’ve recently encountered a few bits and pieces regarding this certain vampire movie. Apparently it’s based on the first book in a somewhat popular series that deals with young lovers and vampirism — OK, I’m kidding. You can’t work on an online blog without knowing that Catherine Hardwicke’s Twilight is one of the most hotly-anticipated films of late 2008. Although the project is supported by a few demographic groups (mothers, teenagers (females) and other random groups), but the fans have been very vocal in expressing their anticipation and excitement for this vampire flick.
Twilight hits the silver screens on November 21, and each new bit of news renders the loyal fans squealing with delight. And so I’m happy to give those fans their first peek at the final poster images. I’ve cropped a small section up there in the top right, but for the whole dang poster you’ll have to double-click the image after the cut (In other words, just click the image twice and maybe be prepared to change your desktop wallpaper. AFTER THE CUT: Twilight’s NEW MOVIE SNEAK PEEK via ETonline. GO!)
This looks good. Kristen Stewart looks gorgeous, if you must ask me. Robert Pattinson, chalk-pale and lookin’ wierdly handsome.

Twilight Poster?&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;br /&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;span style=”font-size:9px;”&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt; (&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;a href =”http://www.polldaddy.com”&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt; polls&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;)&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;/span&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;
Everyone is well aware that Paramore and Perry Farrell got in the Twilight OST bandwagon, but there is so much speculation on the artists who would be joining them in the album.
Muse got in the list, and although Vampire Weekend or Blood Brothers didn’t join the troop (with their names and all), the OST features also other good tracks. Listen and download some of the tracks below.
In addition to Paramore’s “Decode,” which premiered on Meyer’s Web site last week, their song “I Caught Myself” is also on the soundtrack. According to a source at Atlantic, the band is slated to shoot a video for “Decode,” the album’s first single, early next week.
The full track list for Twilight after the cut.
The full track list for the “Twilight” soundtrack, according to Chop Shop/ Atlantic, which arrives in stores on November 4.:
Muse – “Supermassive Black Hole”
Paramore – “Decode”
The Black Ghosts – “Full Moon”
Linkin Park – “Leave Out All the Rest”
MuteMath – “Spotlight” (“Twilight” mix)
Perry Farrell – “Going All the Way (Into the Twilight)”
Collective Soul – “Tremble for My Beloved”
Paramore – “I Caught Myself “
Blue Foundation – “Eyes on Fire”
Rob Pattinson – “Never Think”
Iron & Wine – “Flightless Bird, American Mouth”
Carter Burwell – “Bella’s Lullaby”
New Moon (2006), Meyer’s second novel, was an improvement, largely because it centered on Bella’s new love interest — Jacob, a teen werewolf who acts like a real kid rather than a beautiful, unattainable love object. Problem: Werewolves and vampires are, like, mortal enemies. Whom will Bella choose? The answer will not be a surprise, unless these are the only two books you have ever read.
Reader, I hurled.
Quite the OPPOSITE of Twilight.
“Jacob loves Bella, right? So he’s like ‘oh, well, at least I can have her daughter’?! WTF x INFINITY.”
I agree chica. I agree. Poor Jacob.
Ditto. Got my copy of the e-book online for fear of wasting money.
And here are some excerpts of the Childbirth scene which is not only gross but hideously written. What happened to SMeyer’s “magic”? This makes me SO SAD.
” A half second later, Bella screamed.
It was not just a scream, it was a blood-curdling shriek of agony. The horrifying
sound cut off with a gurgle, and her eyes rolled back into her head. Her body
twitched, arched in Rosalie’s arms, and then Bella vomited a fountain of blood. “
< " Her hand came down on Bella's stomach, and vivid red spouted out from where
she pierced the skin. It was like a bucket being turned over, a faucet twisted to
full. Bella jerked, but didn’t scream. She was still choking.”
” Another shattering crack inside her body, the loudest yet, so loud that we both
froze in shock waiting for her answering shriek. Nothing. Her legs, which had
been curled up in agony, now went limp, sprawling out in an unnatural way.
“Her spine,” he choked in horror. “
“I heard the soft, wet sound of the scalpel across her stomach. More blood drip-
ping to the floor.
The next sound jolted through me, unexpected, terrifying. Like metal being
shredded apart. The sound brought back the fight in the clearing so many months
ago, the tearing sound of the newborns being ripped apart. I glanced over to see
Edward’s face pressed against the bulge. Vampire teeth – a surefire way to cut
through vampire skin. “
The first trailer was totally dry. This one—relatively better. I sure hope the movie is more enthrilling than this…
Here’s the new interview from MTV
and another one asking about his underwear preference…
I fell of my chair laughing when the poster fell. I think it fainted. Hahaha.And the way he mentioned the word “odd”. It sounded something like oood. While Larry Carroll was interviewing him, he kept messing around with his hair. SEXY. Me likey. Can’t wait for him to rip off his shirt pole dance. Haha.
The cover of the new issue of Entertainment Weekly features the leads of the upcoming “Twilight” movie, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, in full-on glam mode, and it’s generating plenty of negative reaction from devoted readers of Stephenie Meyer’s ultra-successful young adult franchise who are less than thrilled with the shot.
The English actor plays Edward, a 90-something vamp who struggles to control his thirst for human blood. Stewart stars as Bella Swan, the quirky, independent-minded high school student who captures his heart. Catherine Hardwicke is directing the film, which is due out Dec. 12.
Though the online community has gone wild for almost anything having to do with the film, the new image is being criticized for a whole host of reasons — but mostly for its depiction of Pattinson, whose unbuttoned shirt/chest-hair look doesn’t exactly jibe with the descriptions of Edward that appear in the books.
Over at MTV.com, which features updates on the film every Tuesday as part of its “Twilight Tuesdays” series, comments such as the following were typical: “Edward looks like a ZOMBIE,” a poster identified as “Horrified” said. “The stylists and photographer obviously had no idea who the characters are. Horrible! I thought the photo was a fake at first. And wow, he looks like a hairy, powdered donut.”
“Blake” agreed. “This cover is horrible. I mean Bella is supposed to be timid and ‘girl next door,’ and this photo does not convey any of that. And as for Edward, his lips are too red, and he is too white. I think that this is a crappy cover for such an amazing series, and it does not do the actors or the movie justice.”
In the “Twilight” forums on Amazon.com, “Alice” posted: “I agree. I mean, come on. If Steve Carell can wax his chest, why cant Rob?!?”
Not every response has been quite so vitriolic, of course. On Fanpop.com, kittykatkate wrote: “Honestly, it’s a good picture, but it kinda reminds me of the covers of those romance novels you see at a grocery store or something.”
The next book in the series, “Breaking Dawn,” is set for release Aug. 2.

Critical article but I have to admit its true. Twilight is a good read but I really don’t like this cover. Robert Pattinson is a great Edward Cullen in all the videos and specials I’ve seen so far (from MTV’s feature Twilight Tuesdays), Kristen Stewart as Bella Swan too but this cover just doesn’t look great nor does it portray Twilight well.
The hair. Holy crap it looks like hay. You have to agree–it’s a shitty mess! The shirt is not a good piece to wear for Robert. They should’ve just buttoned it up. No machoness from Robert there. Pattinson looks dull and where the hell is Kristen Stewart even looking at? She looks sweet but here, I’m just getting blah!, yah know? The apple didn’t really help tie the photo together. What does EW pay the makeup artist and photographer for? To make them look something close to perfect (hint: Photoshop is a good medium dorks.). It looks incredibly sallow. I was expecting something above average from EW, especially since I subscribed recently. DRAT!
What do you think?
