In the wake of the release of the new Twilight movie, which features three actors from the 2010 cult hit, it’s time for a round-up of all the Twi-related tweets from Donald Trump.
The US president has been very vocal about his love for the franchise in the past, and he even showed up at one of the premieres dressed as a vampire.
He’s been following the franchise ever since it first came out 22 years ago, and since the first Twilight movie he’s always been a fan of the beautiful and talented Kristen Stewart, who plays Bella Swan.
This year marks the 22nd anniversary of Twilight, and in the lead-up to this year’s premiere, there were several references to the movie on Twitter. Here are some of the best tweets about Twilight from Donald Trump:
Twilight: Everything You Need To Know
The first tweet comes from @realDonaldTrump on January 11th, the day before the movie’s premiere in London:
“I cannot believe that after all these years, the last Twilight movie is finally coming out. I’m so excited! I’ve been a big fan of Twilight since it first came out 22 years ago. Kristen Stewart is beautiful, and I always love seeing her onstage. Robert Pattinson is an amazing actor whom I’ve always enjoyed watching. I can’t wait to see what they do with the new Twilight movie. Here’s to hoping it will be better than the last one! Love, Donald.”
‘Twilight’ Reminds Me Of The 1980s
On January 12th, Trump tweeted:
“I didn’t see the new Twilight movie yet, but it’s been on my to-watch list since it came out in theaters. That description of the vampires’ power reminded me of when I was a kid and would read the books. I would always imagine the vampires to be so cool. They could disappear and reappear at will, and they were always looking for a fresh victim. What a great setting for a horror movie! It’s amazing how much nostalgia this movie is bringing back.”
‘Twilight’ Was The Most Popular Movie In Its Year
Trump also mentioned that the year 2014 was a big year for Twilight, especially since it was the franchise’s silver anniversary. And indeed, 2014 was a big year for Twilight, both critically and commercially, as it became the first of the series to gross more than $500 million at the box office.
That makes it one of the highest-grossing films of all time, not just within the Twilight universe but within the entire genre of teen dramas. In fact, it was the most popular film in its year of release, edging out previous champ Avatar and Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, which is no small feat.
It’s also worth noting that among its $500 million earnings, Twilight brought in an additional $100 million in revenue from merchandise and home video sales, which makes it the perfect money maker for Twi-hards across the globe.
‘Twilight’ Creator Says This Is The Last Of The Series
Twilight creator Stephenie Meyer recently said that after this year, there won’t be any more adaptations of her iconic series.
“I’ve tried to make it clear that this is it. This is the last of the Twilight saga,” Meyer said in an interview with Deadline. “I don’t want to say it’s the end of an era, but it’s the end of an era for me [laughs].”
“I don’t know what’s going to happen. I think that after this year, there will be no more,” she added. “I can’t imagine doing any more than what I’ve already done. I just don’t see any point in it.”
‘Twilight’ Characters Appear In Other Films
Before we get into all the other films that Twilight characters appear in, it’s important to point out that not all of them are connected to the vampire series.
In fact, a lot of them are completely unrelated, like the Underworld films, where you’ll see signs of the Cullen family.
There’s also the case of The Vampire Diaries, where you’ll see signs of Edward Cullen and the rest of the Cullen clan. And don’t forget about True Blood, where Sookie Stackhouse is often referred to as ‘Bella’s cousin’ and there are even mentions of Alice in Wonderland within the series!
The New ‘Twilight’ Movie Is An ‘All-New And Improved’ Version
The new Twilight movie, titled Midnight Sun, officially hits theaters on Friday, January 18th. But if you’ve been waiting for this moment for almost a decade, then hopefully Trump’s comments about the nostalgic nature of the franchise will bring you some comfort.
This is the all-new, and improved, version of Twilight, meaning that instead of just recreating the same setting and characters from the first three movies, the series has completely rebelled against tradition in favor of creating something fresh.
The results are pretty stunning. As Trump said, this is the last Twilight movie. But instead of feeling dejected, fans of the franchise should feel excited, because while it’s a bit of a departure from the source material, it still manages to pay tribute to it.
Rob And Kristen: The Definitive Love Story Bytes
Here’s another interesting fact about Trump and Kristen Stewart: they have been dating since 2015 and recently became engaged. Their relationship has been covered by nearly every major publication and has been a focus of public scrutiny, largely due to Stewart’s fame and Trump’s controversial nature.
The pair has been photographed at various events over the past two years, often sparking discussion about their love story. In general, this has been seen as a positive development for the couple’s PR team, who have worked hard to elevate their relationship from tabloid fodder to a mainstream topic.
However, it’s important to remember that as with any celebrity couple, the spotlight will inevitably turn to the topic of ‘selling’ the relationship.
And that’s a topic that Trump and Stewart have been quite busy discussing over the past year. In fact, it was reported in October that they had hired famed matchmaker Scott Wells to help them find the “perfect” wedding.
‘Scandal’ Actress Mellie Grant Wears A White Dress
On January 14th, Melania Trump’s assistant Lara Trump tweeted:
“Happy birthday to @FLOTUS Melania! Wearing a white dress is an absolute must on this special occasion. #HappyBirthdayMsMelania”
The first lady officially celebrates her birthday on February 20th, but Trump’s tweet reminded people that today is actually the anniversary of her the wedding to Donald Trump.
