Team Edward vs. Team Jacob: The Indiana Gazette Discusses the Characters’ Appeal

COPIED AND PASTE

Athens vs. Sparta. Red Sox vs. Yankees. Jennifer Aniston vs. Angelina Jolie.

Since the dawn of time, fierce rivalries have inspired fierce devotion, and Edward vs. Jacob in the “Twilight” saga is the latest, most fervent example.

Although fans of Stephenie Meyer’s staggeringly popular series of novels know how it all ends – whether tormented teenager Bella ends up with vampire Edward or werewolf Jacob – somehow they still root as hard as ever for their favorite.
That obviously remains true as the hotly anticipated third film based on the books, “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” arrives in theaters June 30. And most align themselves firmly one way or the other: There is no gray area here.

But what does it say about people if they wear a T-shirt emblazoned with “Team Edward” or “Team Jacob” underneath their Forks High School hoodies?

Jeremy Clyman, who writes about film in his “Reel Therapy” blog on the Psychology Today website, says just wanting to belong to a group is a fundamental human desire. Which side you choose in “Twilight,” though, could stem from personal factors beyond merely thinking Robert Pattinson as Edward is cuter than Taylor Lautner as Jacob – or vice versa.

The Rise of Robert Pattinson: from Model to Vampire and Beyond

COPIED AND PASTE

Pattinson, who is from Barnes in west London, started his career as a model aged 12 but struggled to find work by the time he was 16. He has described himself as having “the most unsuccessful modelling career”.

In May 2005 Pattinson was set to appear in the UK premiere of The Woman Before at the Royal Court Theatre but was fired shortly before opening night and was replaced by Tom Riley.

However, also in 2005 came Pattinson’s big break when he was cast as Cedric Diggory – a Hogwarts prefect – in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
The first installment of Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight series was released in November 2008 in America. It launched Pattinson as a Hollywood heart throb. He was named Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine in 2008 and 2009.

Everyone’s favorite vampire may be on the verge of becoming a true movie star. Pattinson earns most of his money from the Twilight films where he stars as Edward Cullen. But he’ll break out of the Twilight rut with next year’s Like Water for Elephants, based on the popular novel and costarring Reese Witherspoon.

Movie Critics Give “Eclipse” Rave Reviews

COPIED AND PASTE

More articulate, more plot-driven than the previous segments, “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” the third film of Stephenie Meyer’s successful book series, is artistically the most interesting and engaging chapter thus far.

However, it also proves that the particular story and the dilemmas faced by the central characters are far more important than the specific director assigned to the project, though helmer David Slade should get some credit for the higher level of acting and better production values.
Relying on more action and events, and less mood and attitude, “Eclipse” is a revenge-driven romantic movie, which should please the fans of the books as well as the supporters of the first two movie chapters. Regardless of what kind of reviews it gets, the third installment should score big (perhaps the biggest) for its distributor, Summit Entertainment, which will open the picture on June 30, in the midst of the summer season. (The previous installments were released on Thanksgiving weekend, see below).

In less than five years, Phoenix housewife-writer Stephenie Meyer has become a worldwide publishing phenomenon. The translation rights for her four “Twilight” novels have been sold in nearly 50 countries and 100 million copies have been sold worldwide. Her books have been on the bestseller list for over 142 weeks.

Two notches above the previous chapter, “New Moon,” which suffered from an indulgent, overly long narrative and a pretentiously gloomy mood, “Eclipse” is functionally directed by David Slade, who had previously made “30 Days of Night” and “Hard Candy.” Smartly, Slade pays greater attention than his two predecessors to storytelling and characterization, and as a result, his youthful cast, headed by Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, comes across as more appealing than before.

Though giving this saga a different visual style from that of his predecessors (the first by Catherine Hardwick and the second by Chris Weitz), Slade shows than an intelligent director can shape the literary material into an engaging picture, given the broad base of the book series, and the sepcific dramatic elements at this phase of sprawling narrative.

GQ Discusses Robert Pattinson’s “Deathless Appeal”

COPIED AND PASTE


Every teen idol has a calling card – a look, a sound, a phrase so potent that merely the anticipation of it will transport his legion of admirers into that most moist territory located somewhere between incipient madness and uncontrollable lust. Elvis Presley sent his quiff west while his hips pointed east; Brando had his biker’s cap at just such a tilt; while the Beatles boasted the opening Fadd9 chord of “A Hard Day’s Night”. Robert Pattinson – and if you don’t think he belongs in the above company, then you clearly didn’t get out much in 2009 – well, Robert Pattinson looks like death warmed up.
Pattinson, for the uninitiated, entered this pantheon of poster boys with his pasty-faced depiction of the vampire, Edward Cullen, in Twilight. Thanks largely to RP’s dark-eyed charm, Twilight’s Catherine Hardwicke became the most commercially successful female director ever. Meanwhile, author Stephenie Meyer, from whose book the film was adapted, bestrides the bestseller lists, a storming Mormon and latter-day JK. The third instalment of the series, Eclipse, hits cinemas in July.

As Cullen, Pattinson is the latest incarnation of the doomy, Gothic leading man who’s been getting ladies in a lather since the Brontës first sharpened a quill. What’s new here, however, is that the Pattinson phenomenon has been propelled by an unstoppable trinity of Twitter, Facebook and Bebo. Combining an ancient archetype with a modern medium, Pattinson has become a conduit for the traditional sublimated rage, lust, frustration and fantasy of a billion bedroom-bound teenage girls (aka the Twihards). He is the first genuine http://www.heart-throb/.

Remember Me Director Says Robert Pattinson was “Scruffy, Intense, Charming and Unpretentious.”

COPIED AND PASTE

There is an elephant in the room, metaphorically. He is a most handsome, most famous, most perplexing elephant. His name is Robert Pattinson, a superstar among Twi-hards who follow his every breathless, bloodless moment in the Twilight series.

But “the room” is an American indie film called Remember Me, beautifully crafted with an air of thoughtful melancholy by director Allen Coulter. This is the story of a New York university student estranged from his wealthy father, in trouble with cops, and intrigued by the daughter of one detective who has already smashed his face in during an alley fight. The film just debuted on DVD following its modest theatrical run, timed to coincide with Friday’s release of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.
