Riverdale Season 2: What's About to Change For Archie and the Gang

Second Trailer for Twilight

Another Look at Twilight: Are You Even More Excited? Or Deflated?

In my heart of hearts, I want this movie to be good. While I haven't read the books (yet!), I like vampire-y love stories as much as the next girl. And from what I've learned about the books and the author, the whole thing is pretty intriguing.

So this second look at the Twilight movie confuses me a little bit. As someone who's looking at it without the background of having read the books, the whole thing still has a made-for-TV quality about it. It isn't stirring or taunting, and the supposedly evil one is so not scary. So what's the deal? Why aren't they luring us newbies in with mystery, dread, a sense of longing, and that heady feeling of teenage lust? This trailer should make our romantic bubbles boil while scaring the bejeezus out of us.

Is this what you were expecting? Or are you a bit underwhelmed? The good news is, we have quite some time to be enticed by probably countless more trailers and clips before the movie opens December 12.

To see this new one for yourself and let me know what you think,

I am worried about it but I think it's going to be better than anyone imagines.

I do not like kristen as bella that much, i really enjoyed the first 3 books but the last one did not do it for me! I wish they had casted another girl but I will still see the movie.

Um, really, who cares if "James" is scary or not? He's flippin hot. haha. But seriously, I've read the books and I love them. Well, the first 3 anyway.. the 4th one, not so much. BUT I can't wait to see the movie. I think Robert Pattinson and Kristin Stewart will be great. Not sure about a few of the others... but we'll see!

ms anonymous: that is hilarious and he does! i must use "sex on a stick" now. too funny!

LOL dlmslp- I just call him "Sex on a stick" Pattinson because he always has that "I just got shagged" look on top of that bedheadd sex hair....*swoon*

ms anonymous: "sex on a stick" that was too funny and i totally agree with that description of pattinson!

just with vampires i mean lol
Ms--Anonymous Ms--Anonymous 8 years do have a point! LOL I haven't read the books but that particular bit did perplex me too! I agree wholeheartedly with Madchen and dmslp on pointing out how rude some of these die hard fans are being to others who are simply saying the movie doesn't look good or that the story was horrible! Buzz simply gave her take on what the movie looked like to her...this is a blog people just because someone isn't a died hard Twighter or whatever the he*l doesn't give reason to jump down someone's throat!!! On a side note- I agree with the made for tv look....the preview seems to give away the entire movie and we know that there are other books so both characters live in the end so what else is there? Anyway if I were to see this it would strictly be for "sex on a stick" Robert Pattinson!My friend pointed out to me that she thought this movie reminded her of the Covenant just with witches lol.... Like Californiagirl said "Ok, now I am going to run away before a mob of angry Twilighters come to get me. "

I read the books, and they were so poorly written, and unbelievable even within vampire lore. Why would anyone, much less an immortal, want to keep going to high school unless they were perverts?

Californiagirlx... I too agree that if Edward did all those things and treated me that way I would either laugh in his face or slap him. Like I said before, no offense I don't really find them to be great books but everyone is entitled to their opinion and there is no need to be rude.

i don't think anyone can touch rowling's creativity, though i feel meyer is a tremendous storyteller.

The trailer looks horrible! I think sincere Twilight fans will be disappointed, but since I am not a huge fan, it doesn't bother me that much. However, I have to say that I'm more than halfway through Twilight (the book) and I still don't see why it's such a phenomenon. Edward doesn't seem that appealing to me, his "flirting" with Bella is annoying, and the writing is substandard. I just don't comprehend how people can compare it to Harry Potter. Seriously, you think it is on par with HARRY POTTER?!? Maybe I need to read more of the books but I was just expecting it to be better. Ok, now I am going to run away before a mob of angry Twilighters come to get me. :mob:

madchen: i think it's because they fiercely love these books and get protective/sensitive over them. do i like the rudeness? no! i am a huge fan and i am embarrassed by it to be honest. we aren't all rude:) there are better ways to try to persuade people into reading the series than being disrespectful.

Why is it that so many of these devoted Twilight fans come across as incredibly rude? :?

Ok this person has no idea what shes talking about in this article. James was totally creepy in this trailer (and i'm 22!) and he was totally like the book James, (which she would know if she bothered her ass to read the book!) The security guard thing was awsome and quite scary, the look on his face was taunting and he was being dragged from the grate. And the love/romance was deeply conveyed in the first trailer so they were focusing more on excitemet in this trailer.

frogandprince - I agree, she isn't the best writer ... especially when it comes to the action scenes. I often find myself going back to reread the section just to make sure i didn't miss something ... but i do love when she describes the bella and edward relationship, even though its so corny! haha but its a good mindless read :) and i think it will be an better movie!

i am a huge fan of the books and may i add that i am counting down the days to AUgust 2nd! as a huge fan of the book i was excited 2 hear about the movie. but after seeing the trailers i think they look awful and don't do the book any justice! i will not b seeing this movie!

I've read the books and they're pretty badly written. A few characters are funny, but it's basically wish fufillment for teenage girls who want a beautiful guy to love them completely and effortlessly. So the trailer plays into that by showing the cute guy and the ordinary girl and making fans excited to see it in action, not necessarily to attract new fans.

omg i'm SOO pumped! I'm sad I can't watch this at work but I have been waiting for the full length one to come out forever! The movie looks awesome and I can't wait for August 2nd!

Love these books! I'm probably too old to like them as much as I do, but the characters are so amazing, I can't help but be drawn in! I think the movie really has potential to be very cool visually, but it can't live up to the book. I've NEVER seen a movie that I liked better than a book I'd already read and enjoyed. They have to cut too much. That said, I think Rob and Kristen are going to be great in the movie and I'm counting down!

I never read young adult fiction even when I was a teen but I read these books and they are awesome!! Not everyone finds litereature a la Cormac McCarthy to their taste so there is no reason to be snobbish about reading. To each their own and whther Meyer is an awesome writer or not, her next book has a first print run of 3.5 million copies, so I guess millions of people can't all be wrong for loving her.

I have read the books, and i'm excited to see the movie. I think the cast will be great. But i do hope they don't continue releasing trailers as they'll just end up giving too much away, part of why i'm excited to see it is because i want to see the changes they made to the original story, which i think will be awesome. Who wants to go see a movie that is identical to the book?? Way too predicable.

Read the books is my only comment really. Other then that, I am excited about the movie, but all of us die hard Twilight Series fans have to know that there will alternatives within the film that may lead to disappointment, but that is true for every book to movie film (Harry Potter #5 for instance!). About the statements that have been made about Robert Pattinson....he may not be your Edward (he is totally mine!)but he is an AWESOME some of his other work, yes, something besides Harry Potter!! The Haunted Airman was AWESOME!!! He is so adaptable....I think we will all be in love with him after the Twilight movie!! Finally, to Stephenie Meyer (who I met in May and is AWESOME!) Thank you for writing such wonderful books! As a teacher it is hard to convince my middle school students to read....once I found your series, not only are they reading, but they can't get enough. Have totally scored cool points with my kidos for being a fan!!

sheesh, there is no reason to get so angry over this. not everyone has the same opinions. a couple of the profiles above look to have been just created to spout off to non fans. oh please.

I'll be the 1st to admit that the writing style or lack thereof leaves something to be desired BUT the characters and the romance/supernatural plot pretty much pulls the TWILIGHT series out of the pile of UNREADABLE books. That said the 1st teaser trailer was better than this latest one...still I shall be there in December and I have already ordered my copy of BREAKING DAWN...however, I cannot say I'll read her next part of the series written from Edward's point of view.
