Twilight Fandemonium

twilight-movie-posterI am looking forward to the release of the Twilight movie as much as anybody else, but I am actually getting a little bit nervous.  Right about now I don’t think I want to be anywhere near a movie theater on opening day.

First there was the incident that happened yesterday morning outside a Hot Topic in San Francisco where a mob of 3,000 girls swarmed the store and one girl ended up with a broken nose.  All that just because they wanted to meet Robert Pattinson…

Then, I was checking my LiveJournal today where I subscribe to some Twilight community posts.  One of the posts was a girl asking how hairy everybody thought Robert Pattinson is under all those clothes.  Oh my……

Now I know what obsessed fans are like, being one myself for several different things, but this seems to be taking it a bit too far.  I have been to many a Harry Potter fan gathering in my day and had a marvelous time acting like the nerd that I am, but when I was in a room filled with thousands of Twilight fans, I felt…..uneasy…..there really is no other way to describe it.

So, I will probably not see the movie on opening night (but I will get to hear about it because my sis will get to preview it at her theater), but I will make sure to see it.  I just hope I can see it in a theater where people can control themselves enough not to faint everytime Edward comes on screen.

So I urge everyone out there to go forth to the movie theaters and be fangirls:  swoon, giggle, squeal, dress up in costume, and have loads of fun, but remember that there are a lot of other people around who probably just wanted to see a movie.

    who isn’t looking forward to it?

    ahhhhh…can’t wait for the film. To be bad it’ll be shown here 5 days after they show it in the us…i guess by then everybody’s been talking about it. Argh!

    It is going to be hard not to be spoiled about the movie if you don’t get to see it right away. I am going to try to avoid the internet for a while so I can at least enjoy the movie without knowing about all the little changes from the book.
