Word from last week had the first teaser trailer for Catherine Hardwicke’s “Twilight” showing up in front of the Wachowski Brothers’ “Speed Racer”, but apparently that’s either erroneous or been scrapped, or neither, because the teaser has since appeared online on Myspace and it looks pretty good. Even as a non-fan of the book (not that I didn’t like them; I just haven’t read them) this thing looks like it could possibly be better than I had anticipated, and what had I anticipated? A cheesy, OC-ish vampire movie, for one. Instead, it looks like they’re approaching this thing from a very mature POV, which is surprising but definitely welcomed. See the teaser trailer for yourself below.
In the film, Kristen Stewart plays a teenager who falls in love with Robert Pattinson, whose character just happens to be a vampire, from a family of vampires. I hate it when that happens.
