When it comes to sequels, many people think that they’re inevitable. The idea of a popular series leading to another following closely behind seems, at least on the surface, almost natural. After all, the initial film in a series often ends on a high note, encouraging audiences to anticipate the next instalment. For whatever reason, though, sequels aren’t always great. Sometimes they don’t live up to the hype, and sometimes they’re even worse than the original. In some cases, the gap between the first and second films is so great that it feels more like an entirely new series than a continuation of the original. In other words, sequels can be a bummer.

If you’re hoping that the upcoming Twilight movie will live up to your (and our) expectations, read on. Not only will it be thrilling to see Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson reunite on the big screen, but it looks like the movie might actually live up to the hype that’s followed the series from the very beginning. The first footage from the set of Twilight has leaked, and it looks fantastic. In this film, the characters have developed an entirely new dynamic. They’re not just the pale, pretty creatures that we’ve become so accustomed to seeing on the big screen. In fact, it looks like they’ve grown up a bit. They’re talking and behaving more maturely, showing that the series has evolved alongside the audience. Let’s take a look.

Setting the Mood With Ambiance

Ambiance is one of the most important aspects of any film, and Twilight is no exception. From the very beginning, the series has stuck closely to a gothic, dark aesthetic. Although there are occasional bursts of sunshine, the overall mood of the film is, in fact, one of the most beautiful and romantic scenes that cinema has ever seen. The music and the lighting create a dark, brooding atmosphere that perfectly matches the story of a star-crossed romance. With Twilight, Gucci has created the perfect excuse to don a cape, peter pan hat, and sunglasses, and escape the hustle and bustle of the everyday world.

Introducing A Whole New Level Of Complexity

Let’s face facts. We’re all still a little in love with Robert Pattinson, mostly because he’s played such a compelling and complex character over the past few years. The vampire Lestat has enchanted many, including myself, with his charisma and his powerful personality. The character is so interesting that it’s almost like watching a different person, one that you know less about, which makes him more mysterious and compelling. It’s this very quality that makes us root for him, even when he’s been the antagonist in several of the films. This is the first time that we’ve seen him in a while without Camilla, the love of his life, by his side. Without her, he’s more of an anti-hero, and we, as an audience, have grown to love and hate him for it. We don’t really know what he’s thinking or feeling, because he keeps his true nature a secret. This makes him even more compelling. It would be great to see Robert Pattinson explore a side of himself that we haven’t seen in a while, and the fact that it’s been so long since we’ve seen him is already making me interested.

An Evolution In Visual Style

Ambiance is also important for establishing the right mood and tone for the rest of the film. When the camera is down, the sets and costumes subtly shift to reflect this gloom. The occasional flash of sunlight brings a hint of colour, but the overall feeling is dark and brooding. The contrast in tones creates a magical atmosphere, as everything seems to blend into one. The outfits and sets, which were all designed with this aesthetic in mind, perfectly complement the mood of the film. It looks like the designers had as much fun putting this together as the actors will having it on screen.

Ambiance Reflects A Change In The Dynamics

It would be dishonest to say that Ambiance doesn’t evolve with the times, but it’s important to remember that cinema is a completely different medium to life. When a film criticises a series for not changing with the times, it can be easy to think that they’re just being critical. It’s easy to forget, too, that films are products, and like any other product, they need to please their audience. In the case of Twilight, it’s fair to say that it doesn’t want to change too much in order to keep its audience engaged. This is an evolution of the series, in all honesty, because the audience, and especially the female audience, has changed over the years. For the first time ever, Twilight is fronted by a co-starring female role, which, in itself, is ground-breaking. It’s great that the filmmakers recognised that their original vision, while perfect for a film audience at the time of its premiere, might not be as relevant to a contemporary audience. There are so many things that this film could be criticised for, but most importantly, it doesn’t fit with the times, which, in a sense, is what makes it so interesting. There are some, however, that would contend that it doesn’t evolve far enough.

A Film That Works On So Many Levels

I’m not just talking about the clothing and the scenery, either. On a more fundamental level, Twilight is also interesting because it asks so many questions. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, this is a film that works on so many levels. It’s not just a pretty face and a good dose of nostalgia. It’s an incredibly ambitious project, and one that deserves all of the praise and accolades that it can get. This is a film that will hold up, not only as one of the better installments in the series, but also in the entire genre of romantic melodrama. On that note, let’s talk about the performances, because they’re pretty damn good, too. Let’s start with Kristen Stewart. She’s finally come full circle, and it was well and truly worth the wait. She hasn’t just been playing a damsel in distress for the past few years, she’s been transforming herself into a compelling and complex character. It’s been an incredible journey, one that Stewart hasn’t regretted for a second. She’s given phenomenal performances in every role that she’s taken on. It’s an all-timer, and one that will put an end to her “charmingly awkward” phase. Stewart’s transformation is nothing short of amazing to behold, and it’s all down to her acting chops. Next, let’s discuss Robert Pattinson. In Ambiance, we finally get to see the full extent of his talents. He’s not just a pretty face, or a dashing vampire. He’s a fully-fleshed character, one that we’ve been anticipating for so long. It was the right choice to make him the lead in this film, because it allows the audience to get a full picture of who this mysterious and compelling character is. He doesn’t just have one identity. He has many, which is what makes him such an interesting and likeable character. In Twilight, we finally get to witness Pattinson’s ability to evolve as an actor. He didn’t just play the same character for the entirety of the series. He grew with the role. It’s not just about the clothes and the makeup either. This is a character that’s changed, and it’s all down to Pattinson. He’s taking on a more mature role, and he’s doing it incredibly well. It’s easy to see why so many people have fallen for this enigmatic character. He has so much heart, and he’s proved time and time again that he has a great capacity for love. We haven’t seen the last of Robert Pattinson, not by a long shot. This is a character that will, inevitably, return.

As I’ve established, Twilight doesn’t just want to evolve with the times. It wants to change them entirely. This is a film that, first and foremost, wants to ask questions. It wants to make the viewer think, and that’s exactly why it’s been so controversial. It defies all of the conventions that we, as a society, have become so accustomed to. This is what makes it such an interesting film, and one that will stay in the minds of audiences for years to come.
