Movie image for Twilight completely turned me off.

I liked Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. I really did–though I had some reservations, especially with the way Bella didn’t seem to care about her safety or herself at all. (That really bugged me–I like strong girl characters.) When I tried to get into the second book in the series, I couldn’t get into the writing at all. I still have fond memories of the first book, though.

So it was a shock to see Entertainment Weekly’s cover of the upcoming Twilight movie (Dec 12, 2008). Oh my god. I did not envision Edward like that at all. He looks gruesome. He looks, let’s face it, dead. How is that appealing on any level?

It actually made me feel a little sick. I’m sure I’m not the only one. Any way, let me tell you that that is one movie I won’t be going to see, as much as I love movies based on children’s and teen books. Gross me out!

Thanks to Library Voice for the peek at the cover.

    Remember, though, that’s NOT what they look like in the actual movie. It’s just a makeup job that Entertainment Weekly did on them. Watch the trailer – they look much more normal and perfect-for-their-roles. 🙂
