Box-office preview: Can 'New Moon' cross $100 million?

Preordained success is a tricky thing. Anything less than perfect and your movie is considered a disappointment. Lucky for Summit Entertainment and the filmmakers behind New Moon, teenage girls have got their back. At this point only a natural catastrophe (and I’m not talking 2012) could derail the second installment of Twilight from being a major box-office hit. Movie websites are reporting record sales. Teenagers are already lined up for midnight showings. And there is a good possibility this film could gross in the $100 million range, putting it on par with such juggernauts as Iron Man, Indiana Jones and Harry Potter. Not bad for a $50 million movie about teenagers and vampires. But this is one crowded weekend at the box office — Hollywood wasn’t willing to let Summit have all the glory. Some crafty counter-programming includes kid flick Planet 51 and the Sandra Bullock football drama The Blind Side, which is appealing to male audiences. Read on for my predictions.

The Twilight Saga: New Moon: $105 million

Yes, it’s a ridiculously high number and let me preface it with saying that even if New Moon grosses $85 million, it’s a hit. But the reason Twilight was such a phenomenon was because teenage girls saw the movie 6 and 7 times opening weekend. You don’t get that kind of repeat business at a free buffet. These people are obsessed. The only thing New Moon has going against it is its two-hour run time. And while Summit talked a good game about expanding the audience of the film to lure in boys, all Taylor Lautner’s abs have done is raise the screaming girl power in the theater. I’m doubtful boys are going to show up to watch him turn into a werewolf, despite the sequel’s improved special effects. For comparison, Twilight opened to $69.6 million on 3,419 theaters. The sequel is going to be in over 4,000 locations.

2012: $26 million

Roland Emmerich has a huge worldwide hit on his hands. And while he might not be the most eloquent of filmmakers his ability to destroy is top-notch. This film is full of massive spectacle best seen in the theater. So while it’s going to get smacked around this weekend by New Moon, a 60% drop will still give it a solid $26 million take for its second weekend.

The Blind Side: $19 million

Warner Bros. has been selling this “based on a true story” to football fans across the country and surprisingly, it seems to be working. How high those male moviegoers take the movie will be a wait-and-see game but The Blind Side might just surprise.

Disney’s A Christmas Carol: $18

With a 25% drop last weekend, A Christmas Carol positioned itself for a long box-office run. Perhaps releasing the film so early wasn’t such a bad decision after all. The Jim Carrey-starrer has received positive reviews and will be the holiday movie of choice likely into December. Expect another small drop-off this frame and a solid battle with The Blind Side for third place.

Planet 51: $11 million

This is no Pixar film but with a cute concept (humans invade another planet) and charming green creatures it’s certainly appealing to the under-8 set. Still with so much out there, it will be a real feat if Planet 51 crosses the $10 million mark.

Keep in mind, Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire is set to expand to 629 theaters. Even if the film’s per-screen average from last week drops 50%, which is more than likely considering the film’s expansion, it’s still on track to earn over $10 million. That could mean that this indie film could reach an astounding $15 million in three weeks of limited release.

    If it makes that much. America is dead to me

    • I AGREE….

      I think it will open in the $75 million range and drop %65 the following weekend.
      That way Bilblowsbrothers will shut the #$%@ up!

      • BilbrosB4Hos

        Mmmuuuahahaha, you wish! I’ll see you back here next week, gloating and cursing your mother.

      • I AGREE….

        DEAL.

    • Celia

      It will make more than the first one, but not that much. God I hope not….

    • jacqui

      • Chris

        Ok.
        Good luck with that.

      • Connor

        Really, a lot of the people on the internet are Twilight haters, so yeah, good luck. And no one thinks you “hyjacked this blog page”

      • @jacqui

        Way to show your age, Jacqui. Let me introduce you to something. It’s called a ‘period’. It looks like this (.). It is commonly used to distinguish written sentences from one to another. Other acceptable punctuation marks include ! and ?, depending on your statement. I just thought you could use a little education, because aparently the only information that fills your head involves ‘Twilight’.

      • christopher Wilkinson

        Your having a laugh Jacqui the, “best movie series in the world” hahahahaha. What about star wars? Lord of the rings? indiana jones? die hard? Bourne identity? Rocky? Rambo? Jurassic Park? Clerks? Halloween? Nightmare on elm street? Jaws? Harry potter? hellraiser? Batman? Spiderman? Lethal weapon? Mad Max? Kill Bill? I could keep going here but you get the point. The Twilight series is aimed at young impressionable females like yourself with no since of what good cinema is all about!!!

      • ME

        Let me guess…you’re about 12 years old, right?

      • Courtney

        Are you kidding me, christopher Wilkinson?
        Star Wars: Have you SEEN the prequels?
        Lord of the Rings: 3 hours of WALKING!
        Indiana Jones: The latest installment sucked. Sorry.
        Die Hard: LOL
        Bourne Identity: I slept during the third film. In the cinema.
        Rocky: LOL
        Rambo: ROTFL
        Jurassic Park: As a series? No, no, no.
        Clerks: Okay, I kinda see your point on that one. Just the first three though.
        Halloween: As a stand alone film only, not as a series.
        Jaws: Just no.
        Harry Potter: Great series but has its drawbacks as well.
        Hellraiser: ???
        Batman: Franchise has been VERY uneven in the past.
        Spiderman: Could take it or leave it.
        Lethal Weapon: Never seen. Never will.
        Mad Max: Ditto.
        Kill Bill: Double ditto.

      • sonya

        I wouldn’t go so far as to say that Twilight series are “The Best”…I’m a huge fan of the books but seriously, the first movie was not the best example.

        However I did see New Moon yesterday. Unlike Twilight, this movie didn’t disappoint me so yes, I’ll probably watch it another time. New Moon is more polished/ sophisticated, actors have made an effort to act better and I liked the CGIs.
        I won’t be surprised if New Moon box-office crosses $85mm. Even though we were an hour early for the movie, there was a long (and by long I mean at least 1 block long) line outside the theater on 34th st, Manhattan, for the 10pm show and already people were forming lines for the 11pm show.
        I was surprised to see quiet a few men in these lines (I remember seeing only a handful during Twilight).

        Harry Potter and LODR are definitely one of the best series but chances are so will this one be by the time the 3rd movie comes out. Did anyone say Spiderman is one of the best series? If actors were to be castrated for bad acting, Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst will definitely make it in the top 5 list.

    • diane

      26 million on its opening night. Honestly there is no figure that would surprise me. Depress me yes. Surprise no.

      • Chris

        Courtney….

        Never mind.

        I can’t even begin to point out how foolish you sound.

      • Courtney

        Wow Chris, what a comeback…. Seriously, you have the nerve to make negative comments about someone else’s taste in cinema but then list such classics as The Jurrasic Park trilogy, Hellraiser and Rambo? Funny, funny. The arts are supposed to be subjective. And next time I might have a better come back than to say that Rambo VI is better than New Moon.

      • Courtney

        Oh, and it’s “sense” not “since”.

      • Chris

        You got me
        mixed up with Christopher.
        Dope.

      • sonya

        I’d go with Courtney; everyone has a right to voice their opinion, even the 12 yr old Jacqui (as one of the commentators put it).

        And Spiderman as one of the best series…seriously!? SAW would have been a better example. Actors like Kirsten Dunst should be boxed and sent to Azkaban.

    • Muffy

      Tyler, is it that serious?

      So, silly that make truck loads of money is America’s biggest problem? lmao

      • SS

        lol!!

  • invaliduser

    if new moon makes 100 million I will be ashamed to be an american. twilight and 2012 are number one movies? who watches these movies?

    • chrisa

      people who like the smell of their own feces

      • Celia

        LMFAO!

      • Joshua

        Really? I understand the “hate” part but this comment seems more like “I’ve lost it; I’m critical of everything that brings 120 mins of good ol’ fun to ‘normal’ people”.
        How about running to the toilet and smelling your feces now? You’d be surprised to notice that it’s probably what you smell like everyday.

        Before anyone jumps at me…I don’t watch Twilight but this comment’s harsh and STUPID…there, I said it…it’s STUPID. Go back to your favorite porno now.

    • jacqui

      if u dont like the movie dont look at the blogs about it duh its not that hard to figure out u no

      • Chris

        Please go back to Hobbitron.

      • mak

        Chris, please do not insult hobbits. By the way – the proper name is Hobbiton. Professor Tolkien would cringe.

    • BilbrosB4Hos

      Invalid, why the hell do you care what America spends its money on? We don’t judge you for blowing your whole Burger King paycheck on beanie babies and enzyte.

  • barock

    As Clint Eastwood recently said, we’ve become a country of teenage twits. (many of them work for EW)

    • HERE! HERE!

      Whatever happened to this being the “Time Magazine of Entertainment”?
      They’re no better than the other tabloid rags.

      • chris

        I love the “non review” they gave it.
        Haha.
        I guess they remembered what mama always said, “If you can’t say anything nice about a movie, give it a B+ anyway so the tweens and cougars will continue coming to your website!”

      • @Chris

        Same thing I was thinking. EW has given this film so much attention and publicity that it’s hard to think they can give it an objective review (whether or not it’s true, it doesn’t look good). Even if Lisa DID review it fairly, it has the appearance of a conflict of interest.

      • jacqui

        um either ur dumb or really nieve if u expected any less than imature bloging this is teen girls we are talking about immature teen girls who are the very essence of silly obbsessions over topless boys and vampires in love duH wat more did u expect HELLO wakey wakey

      • Chris

        Um y knot lern sympl inglish b4 riting.
        I hope that translation worked!

      • BilbrosB4Hos

        hmm…I think Chris = crispy.

      • tennisfan

        Mmm, I wonder bil***, while Chris is certainly witty and making me snort my tea, Crispy’s usually a wee bit harsher and I think he’s busy fighting the good fight over on the Adam Lambert vs OUT controversy :-)

      • Bilblowsuknowwhat…

        Not crispy but an admirer of him/her fighting the good fight.

      • BilbrosB4Hos

        I like crispy better.

      • Chris

        You’re just mad that I goof on your name.
        Kisses.

  • invaliduser

    taylor lautners presence (cue close up on each individual ab) will gather some male interest. Creepy older guys, and the lighter fare who flocked to 300.

    • Jeff Eastwood

      invaliduser, what’s with the incredibly out-dated euphemisms for gay men? And why on Earth are you even using euphemisms for gay men? Check your calender, babe, it’s nearly the year 2010.

    • jacqui

      there were just as many guys at the midnight showing as the girls so wat eva

      • jacqui

        young guys to who were looking at all the girls that walked past them

      • Chris

        So, you’re from the land of pedophiles?

      • BilbrosB4Hos

        You know what, that IS kinda gross Jacqui. I won’t take this too far, as it IS just an EW message board…but I hope you’re not okay with old guys checking you and you’re tween friends out.

      • ME

        I’m not saying this to be mean…but the guys that were there were probably a little on the sweet side. There’s nothing wrong with that at all, but I’m just saying if the guys were straight they were dragged there by their girlfriends. It wasn’t by choice.

  • Adam

    New Moon will rival Transformers 2 this year for greatest disparity between opening weekend box office and Rotten Tomatoes score (28% and falling). I hope everyone enjoys wasting their money!

  • It could easily make $100 million, but near as I can tell that’s nothing to be proud of. It also looks set to drop like a rock after this week, especially given that it’s at 28% and dropping on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s going to be screaming fangirls and probably not much else.
    Are you guys also going to write a blog post about how overhyped this movie was and how much it actually sucked in comparison?

    • Levente

      Okay… I’m just throwing this out there, and jump on me if you wish, but whatevs. I’ve read the books- thought they were a little trivial and at times grating, but entertaining nonetheless. (I think Harry Potter is infinitely better written and I think those movies are so well done and acted.) I have my ticket for Twilight tomorrow (I’m 28, btw) and have a friend coming in from out of town to watch it with me.
      It’s become an event for even women of my age. I’m not a Twihard, but I’m not a hater- I feel like people just attack this movie/story just to b**ch though. I love the oscars and obscure movies- but I indulge in mindlessness as well some times. I feel like the Rotten Tomatoes number is dropping intentionally. People are writing reviews because this movie being successful makes them angry- and probably without seeing the movie either (I’m obviously talking about the community reviews). Maybe I’m wrong, but I think it’s a little out of control. Who cares if people watch and it makes $100 mill? Yay for the economy?? If it won major awards, then I’d see the basis for all the complaining, but it’s just a movie that girls identify with for whatever reason. That is all.

      • Uhh?

        So the evil, mean movie critics are all in collusion to drive down New Moon’s ratings out of spite? I don’t think they’re that coordinated.

      • JackBauerEnthusiast!

        No trust me the movie definitely sucks. I read the books too and while they can be entertaining if you don’t use your brain…there’s no reason for them to get as much attention as they do. Only GOOD books deserve that much attention and I’m not even going to mention the disaster known as the films. Everything about them sucks…The critics who gave it bad reviews did the honest thing. There’s no jealously involved. There can’t be when something sucks as much as twilight. And you know regardless of the reviews the movie is going to make too much money anyways. I just hope to God America isn’t as dumb as I think it is. If that film makes over 100 million come monday morning…I’m moving to England.

      • legnayram

        I’m not a Twilight fan nor have I been a fan of franchise movies (except for the Ocean’s series). While I understand that people despise these sort of movies, I think it’s unfair that they are being judged harshly. This also goes for people who normally see movies that are more abstract, independent, “intellectual,” or award worthy movies. I agree with many of Levente’s comments. From an economic standpoint, we should recognize the success of films whether they’re good or not. It provides jobs, not only for those who are primarily attached to movie industry, but for others who make seeing a movie an experience like those who work in theaters, food service providers, etc.

      • jacqui

        no she is just saying that even if it makes 100mil it dont matter for wat ever reason and people just dis it coz it makes them feel better about themselves and its a good thing were just leaving a recession so adding 100 mil to ur economy might not b a bad thing considering the debt america and other countries are in i dont think we should be picky as to were the money comes from

      • jacqui

        i agree with legnayram and levente

      • Mere

        @ Levente and Legnayram: thanks for using grammar, etiquette, and intelligence in your responses. Jack Bauer Fan… How do you know the movie sucks? If you posted at 12:42am, then you haven’t seen the movie. I read Vonnegut and Puzo and can still appreciate the appeal of the Twilight series. Remember that until Harry Potter and Twilight, reading was not popular amongst kids and young adults.

      • BilbrosB4Hos

        Well said, bravo! I don’t think it’s such a stretch to imply that it would be terribly unpopular for movie critics to support any “teen movie” francise. Proof would be that initially it was pulling in nearly 70% on rotten tomatoes and has been dropping since. I haven’t seen it yet, but I will not be surprised if it has been slammed unnecessarily.
        For some reason, the only thing the critics are willing to support unilaterally are dark Tim Burtonesqe films and G-rated kids movies. Kudos to those who accept this film for what it is and choose to rate it fairly.

      • JackBauerEnthusiast!

        @MERE: I know it sucks because like I said before I read the books and I also saw the first film (online). The critics who are not just trying to win Brownie points from all the little girls and gave the film bad reviews are whose opinions I trust. The film is BAD. It’s just a simple fact. No one is denying that it’s not going to make money, but there’s no way the film can be good when you consider the source material. The books are horrible. The storyline is pointless. It’s a cheese fest. The fans will love it regardless, but I’m not a fan, so I’m not afraid to say the film sucks. If it makes money for the economy (which it will) then good for the economy, but I think it’s sad that all that money doesn’t go to films that actually deserve it. Films like Precious or The Messenger that actually deserve that attention and that money because the filmmakers worked hard and actually put some effort into it. They didn’t just throw something together because they know it will make money even if they don’t try.

      • JackBauerEnthusiast!

        @MERE: And Harry Potter was around long before twilight. Don’t act like this was some kind of partnership. Harry Potter had a huge affect on the way young people viewed reading long before Stephenie Meyer had her little wet dream. That’s why so many people jumped on the twilight bandwagon because they wanted to keep experiencing that after the HP books ended. The success of twilight is the result of Harry Potter and many other books that came before it.

    • jacqui

      and there wasnt that much sceaming in the newzealand midnight showing but there was laughter in the funni parts and yes there WAS funni parts of the movie and YES people ENJOYED it so what if its not your thing dont watch it simple and you must like it if you want to spend all your spare time arguing over it come on people lighten up have a scence of humor and some IMAGINATION or is america gunning for number one for mindless ness because aussie and nz are up there with obesity u not all specail anymore

    • jacqui

      um there wasnt many screaming fan girls at nz premiers and midnight showing and im definatly not a screaming fan girl but i still saw it twice in the first 16 hours of it being open and we got it on the 19th nov and we a day ahead of america so we saw it first so like wat eva it NATION WIDE SELL OUT here u have to book in advance and our entire country has less people than newyork city alone so i hate to see ticket sales your ways

      • Chris

        It’s nice to know you live a rich, full life.
        Twice in a row, huh?

      • Connor

        I love how she hasn’t replied to any of your posts, Chris.

      • Jason

        Your “writing” makes my head hurt. Please stop.

      • BilbrosB4Hos

        She is probably 12 or 13 years old guys, let’s not pick on the kids.

      • Chris

        She’s still asleep over there in Mordor.

      • Wil

        Oh my God, Jacqui, you’re seriously blowing me away with your illiteracy. I think you’d do the Twi-hards a big favor if you’d just shut up. And I’m not letting someone get away with the inability to write a fully-formed sentence because of their age: I don’t know about you, but I had to learn to write in school at that age, and could very easily put together sentences with commas and periods, and everything!

    • Joshua

      While we’re talking about the ‘Over-Hyped List of 2009′, please don’t forget to include 2010 and Harry Potter 6. Actually, when I think of it Paranormal Activity was good but not THAT. I didn’t hear any screams or saw anyone walk out of the theater.

  • Kelsey

    The crowded box-office slate is pretty indicative that the studios know that this franchise appeals to a fairly narrow female niche. $100 million weekend gross or not, if it were Iron Man, Indian Jones or Harry Potter, it’d be opening this weekend ALONE.

    • Kara

      LOL, your comment reminded me of how HP6 was beaten in its second week by that random movie about gerbils.

      • Kelsey

        And, like, OMG, even though Harry Potter came in at #2 the second weekend, it only took it two weeks to make $30 million more than Twilight did in its entire run! LOL
        And the movie was about guinea pigs.

      • JackBauerEnthusiast!

        Who cares…Harry Potter came out over the summer. Blockbusters rarely stay number one for more than two weeks in a row. And Harry Potter was only knocked second by that Hamster, G-spot, or whatever it was called in America, because Americans are dumb enough to spend money on a film about spy rodents. In the rest of the world, Harry Potter remained number one for a long time. And just in case you forgot…Half Blood Prince grossed well over 930 million worldwide and it’s currently the 8th highest grossing film of all time.

      • jacqui

        more so coz more and more people are becoming paranoid over goverment conspircys that movie was cute if u are a teen or younger but i found it a little boring supose im not the target market these movies are made for 5 -13 yr old man like fantastic 4 and spykids and stuff imagination something all the critics and mindless adults lack around here

      • Wil

        Jacqui, you’re starting to freakin’ scare me.

      • Jasha

        We’re comparing Twilight (1st book) to Harry Potter 6 here? Ever heard of the phrase- comparing oranges to apples Kelsey?

        I don’t care about either books but couldn’t resist responding to such a lame comparison. And why compare? Most of you are…does that mean I like black so I can’t like white? believe me variety is good; it’s healthy. People who read Potter books ARE ALLOWED to read Twilight books. Last time I checked it was legal.

  • Matt1

    If there’s any justice in the world this movie will open at 80 million and end up with a total of about 120 million.
    That’d make me happy

    • jacqui

      just coz u dont like it evry one has differnt tastes u all scared all the teenage girls gona realsie how much power they could obtain from u if they al realsied how strong they are wen they all agreed on one thing put it this way if they could vote they could majorly influcent goverment elections in nz u have to be 18 to vote but most are to lazy to care
      if u dont like it DONT WATCH IT who cares its money 4 the ecomamy yea a hel of a lot for some peoples pockets but still they way to pull out of the resesion is to keep spending . if u keep spending people keep earning so they can spend so some one else can keep earning money makes the world go round the more we have in ecomomy the better even if it comes frm silly teen girls they will be laughing at u wen they save the economy with silly adodlecnt obessesity over a movie

      • @jacqui

        13 year old teenagers can’t vote. You are an idiot. Wait…I need to write this so you can understand:

        jacqui ur liek an idiot you thnik u no what evryone likz dont u wateva twilight will be gone soon so liek wateva no 1 will care about twilihgt in five yearz

  • Maha

    Twilight and 2012 top movies? Blech.

  • Lynn

    Let me get this straight. Summit is virtually guaranteed to make a killing on this film, yet spent only $50 million on it? They have a sure thing, and the film’s effects look that amateur and tacky? I can forgive how awful the first one look, just because they weren’t sure how successful it would be.
    But here’s Summit skimping on effects and hoarding the profit. They’re basically releasing a terrible-looking (and judging from the reviews, terrible) film, not spending any money on making it look better, even though they can afford to, because they know fans will see this no matter how awful it is.
    If I were a Twilight fan, I’d be just a little annoyed.

    • Why bother making crap…

      ..look better with a bigger budget when they have so many suckers salavating at seeing such medicrity?

    • jacqui

      i didnt find the effects bad in fact i thought they were amazing im starting to wonder if the one the showed here is difernt to the one in america coz every one keeps saying how bad the quality is but its one of the best films for specal effects ive ever seen so wat eva

      • Jason

        Well, if jacqui says the effects are amazing then I’m sold.

      • Chris

        I think in New Zealand that they still watch their movies in Kinetoscope.

      • diane

        Jacqui

        Since you’ve seen the movie twice, can’t write and apparently think that Twilight is the pinnacle of human achievement, please forgive me if I think your opinion is a little biased.

  • Nerwen Aldarion

    Hmmm people disowning America because of a MOVIE, that is what makes me sad.

    Despite the rating on Rotten Tomatoes (which I don’t really listen to because of the small number of reviews that they use. 74 reviews is NOT a large enough cross section of the public to say whether or not the movie is bad)the movie IS going to make A LOT of money, it appealed to a lot of girls a year ago and that fan bas has only grown since then.

    I have to wonder with all the people that have reviewed how many have actually seen the movie? It will only be widely released tonight, a lot of reviews I have read is simple things like “It sucked” with no real description. Sounds like haters who just want to write awful things rather then actually taking the time to view the movie. Even Lisa on EW spent more time talking about fans then the movie.

    Regardless of reviews this movie is going to break records and do very well, any dissenters just need to accept it and stop saying “I hate America” because of a movie, it really is pathetic that your views on your country deal with a two-hour movie as opposed to the actual ideas and values that make up the country.

    • invaliduser

      i think nerwen will be in the front row salivating over the close up of taylor lautners abs.

      • Nerwen Aldarion

        Well he is cute! LOL No I’m actually more of a Robert Pattinson fan, Taylor is a little young for me.

        Yes I am a Twilight fan and I admit that gladly, I’m just saying that like it or not New Moon is going to do well. I also don’t think that a movie’s success is a real reason to be disappointed to be an American. It’s trivial and immature to say things like “If New Moon does well I’ll be ashamed to be an American” people who say that are the real idiots.

      Haha. I just posted some thoughts similar. I should have scrolled down farther! :) I, too, wonder how many community reviewers have actually seen it. I’m sure it won’t blow my mind, but I bet I will be at least mildly entertained for two hours. That’s all I ask from major “blockbusters” anyway. Now, when it comes to LOTR or HP blockbusters…. I expect WAY more. :) But who really cares how good the movie is- it doesn’t have “Oscar buzz.”

    if people keep flocking to crappy movies than hollywood creates more crap. the theatres are packed with garbage movies and people are tired of that fact. people go see saw and every halloween a new saw comes out. people complain about reality tv but still watch it. if no one watched this crap then the market wouldn’t be saturated with this drivel.

    • Levente

      Then obviously that means people are NOT “tired of that fact.” To each their own.

      And you think Hollywood, good ol’ superficial Hollywood, should ONLY produce Oscar-worthy movies like Benjamin Button?….I understand the acting was good but the concept of reversing age. Pardon me for not being sophisticated enough to enjoy a 3 hrs birth cycle for a movie.

      There’s enough unhappiness and sour notes in peoples’ lives for us to ruin our weekends watching one “critics-worthy” movie after another. People need a break from reality checks & a 2hrs New Moon or a Harry Potter or Disney’s UP gives them that.

      Does critics rating matter? Heck, who cares, they’re old rotten tomatoes themselves. Will I be watching Avatar, Shutter Island, Lovely Bones, HP 7 & Eclipse (Twilight 3)? YES!! Unlike some people here I like sushi AND salad.

    The preview is logical, but the final result will be surprising. Just wait. :)

    To all the fanboys,

    Wait for your transformers sequel in two years and there you can line up for the midnight showing. In the meantime, we should let the girls have their own fun, shall we?

    • optimus mime

      i am sure you saw transformers too? how about 2012? the only real fans of transformers are five year old boys I would guess

      I can not believe the babble you guys put out. First off movies are for everyone to enjoy and if there is a movie u dont like then dont go see it but at the same time calling other ppl names and belittling people that actually do enjoy a particular film is childish and pointless. Get this in your heads….the twilight saga is not going to appeal to everyone but for those who it does appeal to stop trying to make it a bad thing. Many jobs are created because of this movie and if someone wants to c it 5 times in one day so what who are you to judge their lives or how they spend their money? There are plenty of blow em up beat em up kinda movies for men out there and yes the general fan base for the twilight saga is girls…so what? There are plenty of movies made that appeal more to guys then girls. Hello girls live in this world also and deserve entertaiment! Most men are upset with the movie because there is alot of romance which todays average male lacks, no T&A which the average male cant live without for two whole hours, and realy shows the torment that love puts females through which the average male can not fathem. It was a wonderful movie with some flaws…name a single movie that isnt. Let it go ppl and stop picking on people that enjoy a movie. Oh and for the record I am 34 years old and yes I did read the books. On a final note…could someone please tell me what is wrong with making movies that appeal to our younger generation that isnt full of drugs and sex and puts money into our economy and a smile on their face?

        Ah, sense and sensibility on the internet- refreshing :-) Thanks

        As I said before…why should hollywood ONLY produce Oscar-worthy movies like Benjamin Button? Pardon me for not being sophisticated enough to enjoy a 3 hrs birth cycle for a movie.
