Twilight = # 100 – Stuff white people like :)
You are offensive and ignorant…
Actually, I thought that was kind of funny…
As a white person, I’m offended you think I like this swill.
this is sad
What’s so sad? It’s a just a movie just like any other movie. Movies aren’t some great piece of art, they are a just product, produced and sold, much like a car, Ipod, a book, the only difference is Summit Entertainment won the Mega lottery many times over on this one.
do you know what a philistine is? if not, look it up.
a movie is not a commodity!
Movies are an art. Anyone who doesn’t understand that is delusional.
Twilight = Star Trek for girls.
very very sad
To Josh, you are out of touch. Where I live, there were a lot of Hispanics that liked it too.
FANGIRLS are more fanatical and loyal then FANBOYS.
This Is Madnesssssssss !!!!!!!!!!!!
No. This. Is. NEW MOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
@ second two commentators
If that’s how you really feel, then the crowds in those photos are right to ignore you.
Not even a good film. (Although the middle Star Wars, Rings and Indiana Jones and two of the Potter films were not world-class like their brothers and sisters, either.)
Well, women of all ages finally have their tentpole series. I’m happy for them.
Well, girls of all ages and genders, and their boyfriends..
Just a sad state of affairs to wait X # of days to see a film that will still be out there by the time Christmas rolls around. Shameful!
Love this!! Way to go New Moon fans!!
Folks wish their movies made half that it’s entire run, let alone 1st weekend…..
Good for those who know how to have a great time and live their life. It’s much too short for all this hater nonsense……
Great to see a bunch of kids having fun! They take it for what it is: entertainment.
Or, you know, a very political tool for social indoctrination with a main character who is not a character at all but rather a cipher through which the young girls want to live.
It’s all good, clean fun…except that it teaches so truly horrible morals.
Wow….you need some fiber in your life, sweetpea….
I’m happy that SOMETHING is catching on at the box office. I’d rather see Twilight movies generate this kind of response than to see the movie industry go the way of the music industry. That would/will suck, big time.
Wouldn’t this be considerably more interesting if the source material weren’t anti-strong-woman, repressive, penny dreadful treacle?
Anybody remember ‘The Hunger’, with Deneuve/Bowie, back when vampires looked cool as hell, had actual sex, drank lots of blood and had a good time doing it?
Yes. It didn’t do shit at the box office. Next!
Excellent. The power of movies bringing people together. I hope everyone had a great time, maybe made some new friends and was sufficiently entertained.
Don’t make too big of a deal out of it, folks. There’s a lot of worse things in the world than people going to see a movie.
Check the frenzy in a movie theatre in Brazil: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-flms-ID94
This scene is way more scarier than the whole “Paranormal Activity” flick…
Glad I didn’t go cruise the lines for hot chicks.
I’d rather camp out for Cedric Diggory than Edward Cullen. Just sayin’.
LOL at Josh’s comment. So true.
Wowsa. Why don’t they just wait a couple of days and then go see it?
hurry for the TWIHARDS AND TWILIGHT.
YOU BROUGHT IN THE $$ NUMBERS.
TO : Studio Execs. wake up and start making movies that WOMEN AND GIRLS WANT TO SEE. Start by hiring more female execs and writers and GET RID OF THOSE METROSEXUAL WOMEN HATING loosers you guys have on staff that say that making MOVIES FOR WOMEN IS NOT WORTH YOUR TIME AND INVESTMENT.
CHECK OUT THE NEW MARKETING DATA ABOUT WOMEN !
WAKE UP or suck it!
GG, if you start making movies only for girls than the only actors that would ever get cast are male model types.
They already know this. It’s been proven time and again not just with Twilight. Everybody knows teen girls made Titanic what it was; this goes way back. So it’s not that metrosexual male studio execs don’t ever see this marketing data it’s that they deny it. Exactly because it would mean hiring more female executives, female directors, female writers and producers. It panics them and perhaps even repulses them.
shoot me in the…
This just shows that FANGIRLS are more loyal to their product than FANBOYS. I went to the midnight showing of STAR TREK and there was a small crowd.
Just because trekkies don’t get into the same frenzy as that of the twihards does not mean they’re any less loyal. Slightly more grounded in reality, perhaps. And that’s saying something.
this is pathetic.
(bad movie, bad book *sigh*)
What a bunch of skanks. I see fangirls are just as losers as fanboys.
A lot of really big fans.
I don’t know which movie theater line is more predictable: the line for a “Twilight” movie (mostly teen and tween girls); or the line for a Metropolitan Opera Live in HD moviecast (almost exclusively senior citizens)…..
Personally, I hate the books, hated the first movie, but a friend of mine went to the midnight screening of “New Moon” in her small town and said the fans, although numerous, were friendly, excited, and polite, and even though she was only there to escort her niece, she still had a blast.
This is a way for fans to connect, and although it’s not my bag, I’ve given up trying to disrespect it and just let the fangirls have their day.
