Twilight on the Big Screen?

Man, I just went on the SM website and I have found out who is finally going to play Edward and Bellla on the big screen. Robert Pattinson a.k.a Cedric Diggory is Mr. Edward Cullen. What a surprise huh? And The girl playing Bella...big disapointment. I actually found Robert to be allright as Edward if there ever was one but as for Bella I am so unhappy with the choice they made.

I don't even know if this "movie" thing is a good idea.

What do you think?

Re: Twilight on the Big Screen?

I'm still not sure I like the girl who is playing Bella, but I am in love with who they have for Edward. At first I didn't like him at all (I'm a big Gaspard fan), but I picked up Twilight and read a few scenes picturing Robert as Edward and I couldn't be happier with who they chose. If you rent Vanity Fair, and watch in the deleted scenes they have one with Robert in it, and you can tell he would be the perfect Edward. They probally have it on YouTube also.

Re: Twilight on the Big Screen?

I do not like the person playing Edward. He isnt enough for what for what Edward is supposed to be like. And I like Kirsten Stewart as Bella. But she needs the brown hair. She works well for Bella. She is perfect but she will do. I dont like the person playing Jasper at all. He is kinda creepy and Jasper is supposed to be like a male model. And the person playing James is like completely perfect. But anyone who plaed Edward would never be good enough for me :]

Re: Twilight on the Big Screen?

oh my god. the guy playing James is PERFECT. No doubt about it. I was like "woah" when I saw it on the SM page. lol. I still don't like Bella. She won't grow on me, I don't know why. Edward was okay with me at first, but now I just don't know. I am currently going on Youtube to check out the deleted scenes of Vanity Fair, to see what the deal is. (: i hope this movie is good though, I don't want to be disappointed.

Re: Twilight on the Big Screen?

I like Bella as she is, although I didn't really like her at first. But she seems like just the right amount of normal, with the ability to be very pretty if she wants. Freaked out when I saw her for five seconds in the movie Jumper XD I think the guy playing Jacob is.... short looking.... But otherwise okay. I've always pictuerd Edward with black hair, no matter how many times they said it was reddish brown in the book, and I know they'll never have THEE perfect Edward, since he doesn't exist (-sobs-), but I'm still kind of eh, about him. As long as he's an awesome actor, I'll be okay, though.
 
Jasper looks like he's got a turban o_o;
 
And Carlisle looks a little too old in the cast pictures... Like, 30 something instead of 20 something. And Esme, too. But they're fine. Again, as long as they can act...

Well, it's not on Stephenie's site yet or anything, but everywhere else seems to say it's that kid from Sharkboy and Lavagirl o_o; Weird, right?

Re: Twilight on the Big Screen?

well this is the thing.
robert i wasnt to happy about, but i picture him being edward when i read the books now. i think hell be fabulous.
 
and im not trying to be mean but the girl, i saw her in the messengers or whatever, and in the pictures on SM's website and she just seems to play the "angsty, i hate the world let me go mope in my corner now" kinda person? i suppose?
and i dont think bella is like that. she might end up doing a great job, and i could be wrong. who knows?
i just cant picture her as bella.
I run with the Vampires.

Re: Twilight on the Big Screen?

I agree, I went back and read Twilight picturing Robert, and I can see him as Edward! But... Kristen, is harder for me to imagine, I think she'll do ok, we just wont know, for another 7 months or so....

Re: Twilight on the Big Screen?

Then don't watch the movie, it's getting old listen to people complain about the actors that are chosen. I've grown to like them, but when I wasn't sure at first I wasn't going around the internet posting how much I hate them. Why can't you just support them in what they're trying to do, I think its obvious that Stephenie is excited, so why is everyone so mad.
