It seems investors are pretty darn certain the Twilight film is going to be a colossal success as they’ve already given the sequel New Moon the green light. This is a pretty ballsy move given current economic turmoil but alas the financing is secured and the early stages of pre-production are underway. Personally, in the series of novels nothing beats the original Twilight book as I love getting to meet the original characters and watching their relationships form. BUT New Moon is brilliant in its own way and many of the events in this book are some of my favourite to happen in the entire Twilight series. As far as scale goes New Moon is bigger, bolder and brighter with more action and adventure. Needless to say the blogging on New Moon starts now.
The above headline is a lie, the new Twilight trailer is not trash it’s just I couldn’t think of anything else catchy. Or trashy. Whatever. Like I said, Summit Entertainment posted the final trailer for the film online two weeks ago and already its had a few million hits. Not only is it extended length it features never before seen clips and offers audiences a better look at the beloved Cullen family. You can view it here at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxjNDE2fMjI
The official soundtrack to the Twilight film is due to be released in five days and Stephenie Meyer posted the full track listing on her web page last week. Meyer is a mad music buff and Twilight fans will be familiar with some of her favourite bands which she thanks on the acknowledgments page at the start of every novel. She also wrote and directed her first video clip for Jack’s Mannequin in September so there has been a fair amount of anticipation amongst fans as to who and what will be on the soundtrack. I’ve already downloaded majority of the songs to spare myself the pack of tweens I will no doubt have to wrestle in a Sony store to purchase the soundtrack. From first listen I’m quite impressed with the tracks selected and I think they fit the dark, dramatic tone of the film perfectly. I’m keen to see how the songs are utilised throughout the movie AND desperate to hear Carter Burwell’s version of Bella’s Lullaby. Here is the track listing:
1. Muse — Supermassive Black Hole
2. Paramore — Decode
3. The Black Ghosts — Full Moon
4. Linkin Park — Leave Out All The Rest
5. MuteMath — Spotlight (Twilight Mix)
6. Perry Farrell — Go All The Way (Into The Twilight)
7. Collective Soul — Tremble For My Beloved
8. Paramore — I Caught Myself
9. Blue Foundation — Eyes On Fire
10. Rob Pattinson — Never Think
11. Iron & Wine — Flightless Bird, American Mouth
12. Carter Burwell — Bella's Lullaby
To wrap up my Twilight rant there’s nothing better than treating your eyes to the latest batch of images from the film. These were posted online today at EW Entertainment and include photos from some of the key scenes in the movie. Needless to say these shots made me more excited than Helen Clarke in an all girls school! Enjoy.
