    If the second isn’t any better than the first, there may not even be a third!

    tributegirl, it doesn’t matter how good a movie is for a sequel to be made, but how many people will pay to see it.

    That explains why there are so many Friday the 13ths and Police Academy movies.

    In this case, teen girls (primarily) are starved for love stories with cute young guys.

    True wes, I did take my daughter and her friends, and they will almost definitely go see these next two. I won’t though, I read the books, but the movie blew big time. You are right, teen girls will flock no matter how bad it is.

    Well, we don’t know if New Moon will be like Twilight yet. If it is… I’ll be sad.

    Exciting news! I hope the New Moon director does a better job than the Twilight director, and I hope he’s a little firmer about how far he’ll let the actors go. I think Hardwicke let Pattinson and Stewart get away with too much — they saw their characters as moody and she just let them do it that way. I also read a quote from Hardwicke where she said Kristen wouldn’t say certain lines, so there were tons of rewrites. WTF? If you’re an actor, say the damn lines. That’s what you’re hired for. The only one who should be able to change a line (other than the screenwriter) is the author of the books. Otherwise, the writer doesn’t step in and ask for changes from the actors, so why should the actors change the writing?

    Jasmine, sometimes the lines from the script just don’t fit the scene and most of the times directors/actors/writers don’t realize that until filming the scene. That’s usually when lines are re-worded or taken out of the scrip completely. Actors will know how well the words flow and if they sound right for the character to be saying, or if the character would put the line in different words. I doubt Kristen Stewart was trying to be difficult or a diva, she was probably just trying to make sure that everything flowed evenly and the lines were true to the character.
