No Boat! No light! No motorcar! Not a single luxury! Yet Comic-Con will get “Twilight.” Why? San Diego prepare, soccer moms and tweenagers will overrun your streets and boardwalks along with the convention center. Whether you’re a Team Deadward or a Team Jacob fan, Summit Entertainment will bring the very first panel honoring the “The Twilight Saga” beginning on July 21st. Rumor has it exclusive footage; one of the filmmakers, and a Q & A session with as of yet unnamed cast members will take place.Warner Bros. can’t bring Superman or Batman to San Diego, but the attendees get this garbage! Two years ago Comic-Con was a mess with the glut of “Twilight” fanatics running around grabbing up “Twilight” swag and clogging up the aisles. Producers are sure to have a plethora of “Twilight” tchotchkes, and the fans will go through them like a hot knife through butter. Good luck fighting over this junk on eBay.
“Twilight” is a fringe franchise that barely qualifies itself in the horror genre. It is classified more in the drama, fantasy, and romance genres. So, why is Comic-Con hosting this horrible and deviant approach to the creatures that are only supposed to thrive between dusk and dawn? The new film in the series “Twilight: Break Dawn Part 1” lands in theaters on November 18th of this year. Comic-Con will give the film an additional push to get the fan’s blood boiling. Where’s the push for “The Dark Knight Rises,” or “Superman: Man of Steel?” Most Comic-Con attendees would rather see their favorite super heroes rather than something supernatural that sparkles in the daylight. I don’t know what they are, but I know they ain’t vampires! Get a clue people!
“Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1” will arrive in theaters on November 18, 2011. The film will star Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Dakota Fanning, Maggie Grace, and Nikki Reed. Melissa Rosenberg wrote the screenplay, which is based on the novel by Stephanie Meyer. Bill Condon directs.
