Word from Stephenie and letter from Chris Weitz.

Hey guys,

There's been a lot of worry and speculation on the boards lately, and I want to let you know what's going on.

First of all, like you, I'm sad that Catherine is not continuing on with us for New Moon. I'm going to miss her, not just as a brilliant director, but also as a friend. She has such a distinct, authentic voice that did amazing things for Twilight. I'm looking forward to every movie she does in the future.

And she didn't leave us empty handed. We still get the benefits of her amazing casting and the beautiful visual world she created. This foundation puts us in a good place for New Moon.

Summit Films is moving forward with a new director for New Moon. They've asked Chris Weitz, director of American Pie, About a Boy, and The Golden Compass, to join us, and I am very pleased to announce that he's agreed to be a part of our Twilight world. I've had the chance to talk to Chris, and I can tell you that he is excited by the story and eager to keep the movie as close to the book as possible. He is also very aware of you, the fans, and wants to keep you all extremely happy. (Torches and pitchforks are not going to be necessary.)

I'm excited to work with Chris and I think he brings a lot to the table, not the least of which for me is that he wrote the screenplay for and directed one of my favorite movies of all time, About a Boy. I'm really looking forward to seeing his vision for New Moon.

Below is a letter from Chris to you. I think you'll get a glimpse in this note of how cool it's going to be having Chris as part of our community.

One more thing, unrelated but fun: I finally got around to posting a few pictures from the premiere on the Twilight movie page.

Twilight, Golden Compass, About A Boy comparisons

After hearing the news of Chris Weitz's official acceptance, I thought I'd take a look at the numbers between Twilight and the two films that Weitz both directed and wrote the screenplays for:

 Twilight Golden
Compass
About a Boy
Rotten Tomato Meter45% 42%94%
     
Run time120 min 113 min102 min
     
Boxofficemojo numbers    
Budget$37 mill $180 mill$30 mill
Opening weekend$70 mill $26 mill$9 mill
Domestic gross$145 mill so far $70 mill$41 mill
Foreign gross$35 mill so far $302 mill$89 mill

Golden Compass had a $180 million budget?? And only made $26 mill its opening weekend?? Wow. And it got about the same critical reception as Twilight.

Qualitatively, here are some of the mixed opinions on Golden Compass:

One reviewer blamed Weitz: "I realize that when you make a book into a movie you cannot include every single detail, but it seems like Weitz purposely tried to take all of the magic out of the story." (rt)

While another praised him: "This plot may sound somewhat ludicrous on paper, but Pullman has created a logical, well-thought-out world that Weitz has brilliantly translated to the big screen." (rt)

Weitz himself seemed to apologize for not being true enough to the book: "If sequels are produced, Weitz has said that he intends to "protect [their] integrity" by being "much less compromising" in the book-to-film adaptation process." (wikipedia)

But on the other hand, a couple reviewers say that he was too true to the book and rushed: Manohla Dargis of the New York Times said that the film was "hampered by its fealty to the book and its madly rushed pace." And James Berardinelli of ReelReviews shared the sentiments, "criticizing the first hour for its rushed pace and sketchily-developed characters." (wikipedia)

As for About a Boy, box office numbers aside, there were only great things to be said from the critics: (all from rt)

"The Weitz brothers succeed mostly because they are smart enough to let Grant be Grant and Hornby be Hornby. As in "High Fidelity," the script brims with pungent, quotable dialogue."

"These are characters we care about and relate to; the fact that they speak with flair and wit makes them funnier, but no less human. The movie is a gem."

"To see a comedy with such warmth and tenderness offered up by the directors of American Pie is surely a welcome bit of news."

"About A Boy is a great love story… love of parent to child and child to parent, love of self, the platonic love of someone you never saw coming and ultimately, the love you thought you could never have and would never want, which changes you forever."

Summary: First oneshot. 5K+ words. This is not a traditional, "oh let's wait 70 years to find out that Bella is already a vampire." It has more of a Romeo and Juliet way to it, set 70 years after Eddie left in New Moon. I hope you enjoy!

Sunday Times - Fancy man: Robert Pattinson

Fancy man: Robert Pattinson
Make way for Robert Pattinson, star of Twilight and Hollywood's new heart-throb

Jessica Brinton

Our man has just woken up. He’s just rolled out of bed. He’s sitting opposite me on an overstuffed sofa in trousers and a T-shirt. The year’s teen idol, the month’s hottest “get” in celebrity journalism, obviously hasn’t done up his laces.

In its opening weekend in the United States, Twilight, the vampire film he stars in, took £48m. A cast appearance in a mall in San Francisco, projected to attract 500, was attended by 3,000 and had to be closed down. At another appearance in Pennsylvania, a girl broke her arm. There is even such a thing as a “Twilight mum” (“because loving a vampire is so wrong”).

And at the centre of it all is Edward Cullen, a character described by Stephenie Meyer in her bestseller as “devastating, inhumanly beautiful”, with “lips as cold as marble”. And he is played by Robert Pattinson. The film is good if, like the female protagonist, Bella, you are a willing believer in romantic love that lasts an eternity. There was a lot of screaming when I went to see it. There are some bits that don’t work, but there are some touching moments, too, and Pattinson walks away with every scene he’s in.

Author: jennlynnfs
Rating: PG-13, but I will mark chapters with more mature content with the appropriate rating.

Through it all, Bella had her older brother Emmett to get past the estrangement. Now, with Edward's imminent return to Seattle to help out with his sister Alice's wedding, Bella can't help wondering what drove away her brother's best friend all those years ago.
