After Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson broke up, the on/off couple are now dating other people. This means that for the first time in a decade, we will not see them acting together in a movie or at a red carpet event. For those of you who have been following their career for a while, this is probably not a huge shock. You may still remember the “twilight” series and how it all started. If you are not familiar with this story, read on for more information. Or, if you are looking for some nostalgia, you can always re-read some of the older articles on this site. They are all still extremely relevant today.
The Beginning Of “Twilight”
In 2008, Summit Entertainment and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer formed a strategic alliance to co-produce and co-market films. That same year, they released the first film of the “twilight” series, “Twilight”. The film was a huge success, earning over $500 million worldwide and becoming the highest-grossing independently produced film of all time. Most people know the story of “twilight” very well. After reading Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight novels, audiences were fascinated by the forbidden love story between Robert Pattinson’s character and Kristen Stewart’s character. The director of “Twilight”, Catherine Martin, described the making of this film as a “spiritual journey” for the entire cast and crew.
Signs Of “Twilight”
Even before the release of “Twilight”, news outlets and celebrities were talking about how the movie changed Hollywood. Many major Hollywood players attended the New York premiere of “Twilight”, giving it a very luxurious feel. Unfortunately for the movie, its success did not last. The following year, a scathing article was published in The New York Times about how the film industry was changing and how “Twilight” did not fit into this new mold. The film was a commercial and critical failure, only making $11.6 million at the box office and receiving mixed reviews. But, even today, “Twilight” is considered by many to be one of the greatest tragedies in the history of cinema. It is sad that something that was meant to be so cinematic ended up being such a box-office dud. But, on the plus side, it inspired one of the greatest pop culture phenomena of all time: “Game of Thrones”.
Game Of Thrones
Three years after the release of “Twilight”, “Game of Thrones” premiered. The show is based on the bestselling fantasy books by George R.R. Martin. Like “Twilight”, “Game of Thrones” is also set in a lavish and immersive world that viewers can connect with. Although there are some amazing visuals, the best part of the show is its intense and intimate acting. It is one of the great tragedies of the movie industry that these two phenomenal shows were born of such tragic circumstances. But, on the plus side, they both inspired other successful shows and films.
Future Of “Twilight”
After the critical and commercial failure of “Twilight”, the future of the franchise looked bleak. Fortunately, in 2012, it was resuscitated when it was announced that a re-make was in the works. The new version of “Twilight” would be co-produced by Summit Entertainment and Sony Pictures. The remake was directed by Rupert Sanders and stars Anna Kendrick as Bella and Chris Pine as Edward. While there are some differences between the two versions of the story, such as the setting and some characters, the basic structure and themes are the same.
In November 2014, it was announced that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were getting back together. One month after their romantic reunion, Stewart gave birth to their child, Flynn. Since then, they have been a joy to watch on social media. Like her character Bella in “Twilight”, Stewart is also opening up about her personal life and her experience as a mom on social media. While this may seem like a perfect match, this may not last. Rumors are swirling that Stewart is looking to break up with Pattinson again. If this happens, it will not be the first time that these two have betrayed our love for each other. But, we will always have “Twilight” to remind us of their epic love story and to cherish the precious time we had with them before it all fell apart.
