If you’re a fan of the Twilight films, you may be interested in the news that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are teaming up for a sequel. The actress was recently in the news for a rather personal reason, as she revealed she’s expecting her first child. This may have spurred Pattinson into action, as he is said to have proposed just days later. The news was officially confirmed by Stewart’s rep, who stated, “They’re very happy and looking forward to starting a family.”
While it may be a while before we see Stewart and Pattinson on screen again, it certainly doesn’t hurt their careers that the Twilight films still have legions of fans. The sequel is currently without a title, but fans may refer to it as The Twilight Saga: Hunter S. Thompsondocumentary.
The Early Days Of The Twilight Saga
If you’re not familiar with the Twilight saga, here’s a short primer: The Twilight Saga is an upcoming American romantic fantasy-drama film series based on the novel of the same name by Stephenie Meyer. The saga will focus on a group of high school students who form a vampire club in order to satisfy their supernatural desires.
The first film in the series, Twilight (2012), was a moderate success at the box office, grossing $327 million worldwide. It was followed by the underwhelming continuation, New Moon (2013), which only earned $215 million. However, things are looking up for the Twilight saga, as the third installment, Eclipse, is on track to become the biggest film yet. It has officially surpassed the previous film, New Moon, at the box office, and is currently the second highest-grossing film of all time. The final installment is scheduled for release in November 2015.
Why Is The Twilight Saga So Popular?
It’s safe to assume that Twilight’s popularity has something to do with the fact that it’s one of the first films of its kind. When the series was released in 2012, it was widely hailed as a groundbreaking effort, both for its portrayal of a socially awkward adolescent girl and for its attempt to subvert traditional gender roles. Many have credited the film for raising important questions about gender identity and relationships, especially since the central female character undergoes a transformation at the end of the film.
Twilight’s biggest draw, however, may be its unique brand of romanticism. While other stories often involve dramatic confrontations and high-flying action, Twilight is told from the point-of-view of a bespectacled high school student named Bella (Taylor Lautner). Through this perspective, the film explores the more mundane aspects of early 20th century high school life, such as the anxiety associated with trying to find your place in the world and the fear of failing your friends and family. It also shows how far some will go to prove their undying love for another person.
The Hunt For Seth
Set in the same fictional universe as Twilight, the upcoming Hunter S. Thompsondocumentary will explore the worldwide search for the infamous school shooter Seth Rich. Rich killed his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend, as well as wounded a police officer during a shooting spree at the Rich Stadium in Washington, D.C. Just before his death by lethal injection, Rich confessed to police that he was the person who had hacked into the DNC’s email system and given the emails to WikiLeaks in 2016.
The investigation into Seth’s motives was complicated by the fact that he had expressed violent fantasies about committing acts of terrorism in the United States. However, a private investigator named Kate Mancuso has been hired by Seth’s brother, Cameron, to find out what really happened. While Mancuso delves into various supernatural theories, she also confronts Cameron about his brother’s disturbing state of mind. Mancuso is arguably the most interesting character in the film, as she alternates between looking into the paranormal and investigating the events surrounding her client’s family.
What Is Mancuso Researching?
The synopsis for the Hunter S. Thompsondocumentary describes Mancuso as a “reluctant paranormal investigator, who becomes obsessed with solving the mystery of [Seth’s] strange behavior.” While she doesn’t believe in vampires or werewolves, Mancuso has open minds when it comes to exploring other possibilities. This includes the theory that Seth was “infected” by a demonic force. She travels to Italy, where her search takes her, in order to investigate further. During one of her excursions to Italy, Mancuso meets up with Robert Langdon (producer Matt Salisbury), who is working on a separate project to investigate the events surrounding Seth’s death. They collaborate in their efforts to learn more about the Rich family’s dark secret.
When it comes to exploring alternative theories about the mysterious deaths, the documentary will no doubt be of interest to fans of the Twilight saga. However, even those who are not familiar with the series may be interested in the search for Seth’s motive. While other films have often mined the idea of teenage angst, for the first time in a long time, the central character’s emotions are explored in such an original and creative way that it will be hard for audiences not to be intrigued.
Whether or not you’re a fan of the Twilight saga, you may find the news that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are reuniting for a sequel intriguing. The early buzz regarding the film is promising, as it was revealed that the script is “fantastic,” and the director has promised to take the mystery out of the closet once and for all.
