How Has Twilight Affected You?

I will admit at first, I didn’t know what Twilight was or had even read the book but it seemed to be a huge deal to everyone else. A cousin of mine told me, “You have to check out this movie Twilight and this guy in it is so hot.” I was curious because I had seen the previews but didn’t know exactly what  it was so she let me borrow the movie so I could see it….oh my God, what did I do that for?

I went from not knowing a thing about the Twilight Saga to reading all the books, keeping track of when the next movie would be out, any news that even mention Twilight or the people from the movies, I knew about it and writing this lovely blog about everything I could possibly find on Twilight.

Kristen, Robert and Taylor have done an amazing job bringing this world to life for us on the big screen. Stephenie Meyer has written a story that will take its place with other classic love stories of its time. Vampires and werewolves take on a whole new meaning and take us to a different world of imagination.

Breaking Dawn, both parts, will be amazing. I think it will smash records from theaters to DVD sales and I would hope that they would put it on DVD because there will be a lot of people really, really upset. The Twilight Saga is a beautiful love story that will go on forever and I will continue to follow these characters because they have ‘imprinted’ on my life and the billions of fans worldwide and only people who have seen the movies or read the books will get what I’m saying.

I will be sad to see this story end but if I want to relive this story all over again, I can pop in a movie or read the entire series again and again. Thank you to everyone involved for bringing this story to life for us.

The Twilight Saga: What Happens After It Ends?

Yes, the biggest phenomenon has to come to an end some time and since Eclipse is due out this summer, it has everyone wondering what will happen when it’s all over? Our favorite stars such as Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner will be moving on from the amazing series of books to do more movies and more projects of their own but they will always be remembered for doing Twilight Saga Movies.

For some of the stars, they became overnight successes and to others only enhanced their careers and the media took a closer look at their portfolios. Kristen Stewart has been movies such as Panic Room with Jodie Foster and Catch That Kid, a Disney movie which stars Corbin Bleu from High School Musical (another movie phenomenon). Robert Pattinson had a significant role in Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire but didn’t quite blow up until Twilight and now, we can’t get enough of him. Taylor Lautner was in The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lava Girl.

These movies and books will be with us for a lifetime, long after The Twilight Saga is gone. We will keep cheering them on as they star in many more movies.

Top Ten ‘Twilight Saga’ Surprises

OS ANGELES – The “Twilight Saga” only has one movie under its belt so far, but already there’s been enough drama surrounding the vampire franchise to fill a soap opera. With “New Moon” on the way this fall and production on “Eclipse” beginning, AccessHollywood.com counts down “Twilight’s” craziest moments so far!

10. NAKED VOLTURI 
Jamie Campbell Bower revealed that the Volturi vampires will appear naked in “New Moon” — but it turns out that he was only joking. He originally told MTV News, “We just all sit there, completely naked, for one scene.” However the film’s director Chris Weitz cleared things up in a statement saying: “Dear all, I would like to put everyone’s mind at rest and let them know that the Volturi are not naked!”

9. HARDWICKE NOT RETURNING FOR “NEW MOON” 
After helming the massively successful “Twilight,” and earning the biggest opening weekend ever for a female film director, Catherine announced that she would not return for “New Moon.” While a source told Deadline Hollywood Daily that there was friction between Catherine and the film’s studio, Summit Entertainment, both the director and the studio said the split was on good terms and the reason she wasn’t involved in the sequel was an issue of timing.

8. TAYLOR LAUTNER ALMOST LOSES HIS ROLE

For awhile things looked dicey for Taylor Lautner. It was rumored that due to how big his character, Jacob Black, becomes in the second film, Summit was concerned Taylor wouldn’t be able to fill the werewolf’s paws. It caused quite an online stir, as fans petitioned and fought to keep Taylor in the role. And Taylor himself did not take the news lightly — he hit the gym and bulked up, cementing his spot as Jacob.

 

 

7. STEPHENIE MEYER’S LEAKED BOOK


After an unfinished rough draft of Stephenie Meyer’s latest “Twilight Saga” novel, “Midnight Sun” was leaked on the Internet, the author explained, “If I tried to write ‘Midnight Sun’ now, in my current frame of mind, James would probably win and all the Cullens would die, which wouldn’t dovetail too well with the original story. In any case, I feel too sad about what has happened to continue working on ‘Midnight Sun,’ and so it is on hold indefinitely.”

It was quite a surprise when Dakota Fanning, who had been known as the beloved blonde child actor from dozens of movies, was cast to play the evil pint-sized Volturi vampire, Jane. It’s quite a departure from Dakota’s previous films, and fans are looking forward to seeing her sink her teeth into the role!

5. DAVID SLADE KNOCKS “TWILIGHT”
There’s nothing worse than angry fanpires. After David Slade signed on to direct the third film “Eclipse,” it was reported that he had made some disparaging remarks about the series on a radio show. He said, “‘Twilight’ drunk? No, not even drunk. ‘Twilight’ on acid? No, not even on acid? ‘Twilight’ at gun point? Just shoot me.” He later howledhis regrets to the fanbase, explaining, “I was being silly and none of the statements were from the heart.”

4. TAYLOR LAUTNER’S ABS

Jacob
Yes, Taylor’s abs get their own spot on the list, and rightfully so. With his shirt off for much of “New Moon,” fans can see that all the hard work at the gym has paid off for Taylor Lautner and his eight-pack. At the San Diego Comic-Con, tweens nearly lost their mind when they saw the coming attraction. Click here to hear their screams!

3. ROBERT PATTINSON AND KRISTEN STEWART DATING RUMORS

While it has long been a dream for many of the Twi-hards to see Edward and Bella spark a real-life connection, it appears as if this off-screen rumor mill has heightened in recent weeks. There were many reported sightings of the duo in Los Angeles while their co-stars were back in Vancouver, and rumors that they had hung out at the Chateau Marmont together, a source told People.

 

2. ASHLEY GREENE NUDE PHOTOS

After nude shots allegedly of the star were leaked online this past Monday, Ashley Greene is firing back threatening legal action. The racy photos, which appear to show the “New Moon” star nude, surfaced online one day after Ashley picked up the Choice Fresh Face Female award at the 2009 Teen Choice Awards.

 

1. RACHELLE LEFEVRE RECAST!

The surprising news that Bryce Dallas Howard would be replacing Rachelle Lefevre in the role of Victoria for the third installment of the series, “Eclipse” sent a shockwave through the fan base. While Rachelle said that she was “stunned” by the news, the studio fired back saying that it was due to “schedule conflicts” and pinned the blame on Rachelle.
