It’s official: I’m a Twilight fan. You’ve witnessed my two-week transformation right here on this blog. I started out just like any curious reader exploring the buzz behind the popular Twilight series, and now I’m hooked. I display all the signs and symptoms of a fan: I’m mentally casting the characters, I’m visiting Stephenie Meyer’s website, I’m searching for fan videos on YouTube. Once I started searching YouTube, I knew I had jumped on the Twilight bandwagon and there’s no turning back.
The perks of jumping on the Twilight bandwagon this late in the game is finding out that there is an actual movie in pre-production! The leads have already been choosen with Kristen Stewart as Bella Swan and Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen. Since I became a fan two weeks ago and haven’t had time to select my ideal actors to play the title roles, I have no objections to the casting. In fact, I’m already starting to superimpose these actors with the characters in my mind.
As for the YouTube video, I originally planned to post one, but I found three fan trailers that are too good not to share. So this is for all the Twilight readers out there who might have enjoyed the book but never had the inclination or the obsession to search for it on YouTube.
Before you view: Keep in mind that these YouTube videos were created long before there were rumors of a Twilight movie and long before the official casting of Bella and Edward. You may see different actors/actresses for each video. The REAL Twilight trailer has not been released. These are fan trailers.
1. Twilight Fan trailer #1. I like the casting of Gaspard Ulliel as Edward Cullen, but I’m not so keen on Amber Tamblyn as Bella. Cillian Murphy as the evil vampire tracker James is perfect. I love the suspenseful music!
2. Twilight Fan trailer #2. The pace of this trailer is like a pulse; the music transforms it into some seductive thriller.
3. Eclipse Fan trailer. I haven’t read Eclipse yet, but there is only one word for this trailer: badass! That’s all there is to it—cheesy yet badass at the same time! Pay special attention to the end when the falling red ribbon superimposes onto the book’s cover art. Genius!
I can’t wait for the real movie trailer to come out!
