Everybody has read or seen the first five movies of Harry Potter’ books, soon to be six. Now, it’s time to step aside and welcome the new and expected movie about one of the best-seller authors.

I’m pretty sure every Harry Potter’ fan went into comma when they heard the bad news that the new movie, Twilight, supposed to be released on December 12th, is now replacing the release date of Harry Potter 6th movie on November 21.

However, at the same time, the new movie’ fans call them “Twilighters” were extremely happy about the news.

Twilight is the story of a seventeen-year-old girl who is going to fall in love with a seventeen-year-old perfect guy; but he has a secret. He is a 107-year-old vampire.

Besides being the first book of the phenomenal four book series written by best- selling author, Stephanie Meyer, it is also the first to be on screen Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn are written by Bella’s perspective; however, Midnight Sun is Twilight but from Edward’s perspective.

Before this big movie sensation started, fans had already posted on YouTube trailers about the movie, and there are tons of web pages dedicated to the movie, such as,,,, and many more.

Now, with only a day before the big premiere, Twilight has already become a huge success with many teenagers, especially girls, and moms, too.

MTV News has dedicated every Tuesday specially for Twilighters, and it’s called Twilight Tuesday, where they cover every minute of this movie. They have interviews with the cast, the director, the author, and they also show Twilight’s trailers.

The story takes place in the small town of Forks, WA; a rainy and no-sunny place. It is also set in Port Angeles, WA; Phoenix, AR; and La Push, which is the Quileute Indian Tribe. However, the film was shot in St. Helens, OR; Portland, OR; and Vernonia, OR.

On one Twilight Tuesday, MTV had an interview with the person who is the brain behind this movie, Director Catherine Hardwicke. She described the vampires with “No fangs allow.” “These are beautiful, super sexy vampires. They’re stronger enough and powerful and they can kill you any way,” she added.

But as all books that become movies, there are always some things that are left out in the process of being made into a movie.. On another Twilight Tuesday interview, Producer Greg Mooradian announced that “We are not making Twilight the book, the movie. We love the book, and we know the audience loves the book. But at the same time, you have a separate responsibility to make the best movie you can make.”

The last Twilight trailer submitted on You-Tube by Summit Entertainment ends up with Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen saying, “You are [Bella, play by Kristen Stewart] my life now.”

On November 4th, the Twilight soundtrack was available in stores A 12 song CD which includes bands such as Linkin Park, Muse, Paramore, singer Rob Pattinson, and many more.
