Due to my deeply misguided attendance of a Twilight Fan Fic panel at Comic Con two years ago, I have been condemned to reviewing the new Twilight film in a few weeks. This means that I feel a deep and abiding need to share with you every bit of news that comes out about this franchise. I know that most of our readers will not be viewing the film in their neighborhood cinema, and yet will look on my pained review with barely contained glee. So I must share all I can.
The below clip just got released and teases us with Bella’s and Edward’s honeymoon, just to get the audience good and frothy in advance of the release.
What still astounds me about these films is just how awkward they seem from start to finish. Dialogue, plot, characterization all aside (and yes those are big things to set aside), the actors just don’t seem to have the slightest animation or spark. These two are not objectively terrible actors, they’ve both acquitted themselves adequately if not spectacularly outside of the franchise. But in this clip, they’re about as convincing as the actors from a junior high play, and just about as comfortable with romance.
