Total Eclipse Of The Heart

Turn around….

Every now and then I get a little bit nervous about big pop culture phenomena that creates masses of crazy fans. In my tween years it was boy bands, but of course these days it’s vampires and werewolves and wizards. Today movie theaters around the country are losing their minds trying to deal with females of every age who are dying to see the 3rd installment of The Twilight Saga. I haven’t  had the privilage to see Twilight Eclipse yet (8pm tonight I will have the honor; it is my favorite book in the series and the guy who directed 30 Days of Night is attached to this installment so I have my fingers crossed), but let’s talk about what I have seen… The latest Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows trailer via Film School Rejects which is supposed to be attached to today’s release of Twilight.

I was stunned into silence by this trailer. David Yates and Warner Brothers are sending Harry Potter out with a huge bang and you can feel how enormously epic this ending is in just these brief two and a half minutes. To be completely honest with you, the release of this trailer on MSN before Twilight’s opening has reshuffled my excitement. My immediate thoughts following the trailer was “screw Eclipse, I want Deathly Hallows”  which can only make me wonder how many other Twilight moviegoers may feel the same? Obviously the Twihards won’t care, but what about the rest of us? Could this trailer outshine Twilight Eclipse? Ok maybe I’m getting too excited. Honestly the Twilight fandom is so intense and rabid, I doubt this would be the case nationwide… But for some people (boyfriends and husbands being dragged to see Twilight), it may just be the highlight of the evening… along with Taylor Lautner being shirtless… yummy.

Whatever team or franchise you support its a great day for all. New epic film and new epic trailer… another great day at the movies.

All I Want For Christmas Is Avatar

At the screening of “A Christmas Carol” last night, I went in with no real excitement being that I knew what was going to happen in that movie. But then the previews rolled and this came on.

If you’ve been following this “Avatar” madness, you already know the hype that has been built up. “It’s James Cameron! He’s been working for 900 years on this film! He created cutting edge film technology to make this movie! BLAAAAH!!!” (yes, that’s the exact conversation that you had with someone). Ever since the panel at comic con, I’ve been extremely interested in this project mainly because it’s been shrouded in mystery and they keep teasing us with the footage that is so vibrant and fantastical. So far the footage has been cool, which I’m sure you can agree if you attended one of the Avatar previews but as we’ve seen from Transformers 2… special effects  doesn’t mean anything without a story. This is what critics have been getting at ever since the first trailer hit the web… it even spawned a video of Hitler bashing “Avatar” (which if you haven’t seen, you must!)

Last night when I watched the recently released full length trailer in 3D, I finally let myself buy into the hype… ZOMG!  This is going to be bad ass. James Cameron, please bring Christmas early this year… December 18, 2009 🙂
