It’s time for another look at that disturbing pop culture, uh, thing, that is “Twilight.” A new poster has surfaced for the first part of “Breaking Dawn,” highlighting the intimacy between the ages-old, cradle-robbin’ vampire and his human prey/wife. Presumably, this is a clip from the honeymoon, before he delivers bed-breaking, violent sex to produce a baby that later excites a horny werewolf. Yeah, this series is fucked in the head.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, as always, headline the film, though you wonder if there’s any cachet to slapping them on the poster, as their films have yielded inconsistent results regarding their box office appeal. One thing’s for sure: Taylor Lautner, who tackles an action movie in “Abduction” in coming weeks, is purposely going to be marginalized. We understand his main (only?) function in this story is to tell everyone he’s going to fuck that baby when it grows up, but certainly Lautner has become as big a name as Pattinson or Stewart, right? Ah, who cares, we’re not up to date as far as what the kids like these days.
