Glittery Vampires in Love

Glittery Vampires in Love | For Lovers of Paranormal Romance | Scoop.it

No, you’re not experiencing deja vu (or if you are, it’s unrelated). Schaeffer’s Ghost has already posted a review of Twilight—and quite a good one at that. And yet, I am compelled to review the first book in the series because I have been compelled to read it by my wife (possibly as revenge for my forcing her to read The Cowboy and the Vampire, which in turn was revenge for being subjected to Jane Eyre).

Shonda Brock's insight:

What do you think Twilight says about love?

Twilight Screenwriter Reflects on the Series' Power in Hollywood

Twilight Screenwriter Reflects on the Series' Power in Hollywood | For Lovers of Paranormal Romance | Scoop.it
No matter how you feel about Twilight — love it or hate it — the phenomenon has been one of the biggest stories to come out of the movie industry in the last five years.

Now that the series is ending, Melissa Rosenberg, who penned all of the scripts for the Twilight franchise, talked to Women And Hollywood about the impact the blockbuster flicks have had on the industry.

When asked if Twilighthas changed how Hollywood thinks about girls — and women — Rosenberg replied:

"I hope it has. I think the prevailing wisdom prior to Twilight was that you would have tent-pole movies all for 13 year old boys. And they were driving box office. I actually had producers in the past tell me, you can't do any kind of action movie or open a big tent pole movie with a woman because there are no women who open movies, except for maybe Angelina Jolie. I was appalled by that comment. So what Twilight does is show how women/girls can drive box office and they can support a tent pole movie. They're an extremely passionate fan base. This coincided with the 13 year old boys starting to stay home and play video games and work on their home media stuff. They're no longer going to theaters in droves. It's a sort of interesting confluence of events that all came together with women becoming an active audience."

 

Even if you wish the story had a better plot, a stronger female character, a less-creepy romantic lede, the fact remains that it's been a juggernaut, raking in cash from book sales, movie ticket sales and merchandise. If there's one thing that gets attention in Hollywood, it's money. Hopefully this means women will find better offerings at the multiplex in the years to come.
