Catherine Hardwick, who directed the first Twilight and was let go after being pressured by Summit Entertainment to get another one out as soon as she could. Now rushing "New Moon" may have come back to "bite" them on the ass.
Hardwick wanted to do the "New Moon" is a classy way, the way that brought so many to appreciate the first version of the bestselling series.
Hardwick reportedly told "Film Business Today" that now the movie has been rushed through at top speed just to get it out and making money as fast as it can.
"Those loyal readers of the books and fans are going to be let down in this one, I believe. They'll be able to tell the difference where scenes and actors are rushed though."
She may be right. In clips already seen, there are a pack of werewolves but instead of a man changing slowing into a wolf, a great opportunity for today's makeup artists, one simply jumps up as a man and comes down as a wolf, and not that good of a wolf..more like a mean pekingese or maybe one that's been fixed, and not well pleased about it.
If this movie is a success, it will be the actors that pull it through and we hope Summit Entertainment get their money and give the third Twilight some time to do it right.
Robert Pattinson and Kristie Stewart do a great job as do others.But this vampire movie isn't very scary. For one thing, there's not much blood for a story about vampires.
However, there IS romance and tender young necks just right for biting.
