E! showed a trailer from the Twilight movie and is touting the movie as the next big franchise after Harry Potter. Twilight the movie is based on Twilight the book by Stephanie Meyers. This is her first book, it was accepted and published as a vampire novel for young adults. There are four books in the series with the fourth one coming out August 2008. The books have an avid teen following. I listened to the audiobooks and found them a bit slow and full of teenage angst. The books are very much feelings and in your head and that type of book is very hard to translate to film. Clan of the Cave Bear is a prime example. Loved the book. Hated the movie. So much of the book is based on the feelings and reactions of the characters which reads beautifully but without the right director fails miserably as a movie. If the director (female) can create or find the tension of love and fear, life and death between the characters and manipulate it throughout the film this could be a huge hit. Still I think it will do well especially among the rabid teen and tween population that will probably want to see it several times. Out December 12, 2008.
