The world is a wonderful place, and we are so lucky to be alive during this time. There are still a lot of problems, of course, and we need to keep working hard to fix them, but all in all, the future looks very bright.
There are many upsides to being alive during this time, and one of the best things is being able to witness history. If you’re a fan of the Twilight Saga, then you’ll no doubt be keeping a close eye on the world of cinema as we know it. One of the most beloved actors of the last decade is hitting the big screen with a new movie set for release next year. His upcoming project, an adaptation of the bestselling novel Dune, is set for release on December 12, 2019.
The Making Of Dune
Dune was first released back in 1995, which makes it one of the older novels within the Twilight Saga. If you’ve never heard of it, that’s probably because it’s best known for being the source material for 2001: A Space Odyssey, one of the greatest films of all time. You may also know that it is the longest novel in the history of science fiction, featuring a whopping 22 chapters. That type of length can only mean one thing – it’s time for another adaptation!
The screenwriter for Dune, Frank Herbert, passed away in 2018, leaving the future of his creation in the hands of his four children. One of the biggest movie franchises of all time is now in the process of being adapted for the big screen. The success of the previous Twilight movies, coupled with the incredible popularity of The Witcher, have led to a new dawn of superhero movies, with Dune being the first of many big-budget adaptations.
Unlike most of the other films listed here, Dune will be a combination of live-action and animation. The novel is notoriously complex, featuring an intricate planet-hopping storyline that spans over 600 pages, so there’s a good chance that director Francis Lawrence will need all the help he can get to bring it to life on screen.
The Making Of Eclipse
Eclipse is the second part of The Twilight Saga, following the beloved 2010 film, New Moon. It was first released in 2008 and, once again, features an all-new screenplay by Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Stephenie Meyer. It marks the first time that she has co-written a script with her daughter, Stephanie, who acts as a producer on this adaptation.
The biggest difference between this year’s Eclipse and the last is that it is set in the present day and focuses more heavily on the interpersonal relationships between its characters. That is not to say that there aren’t any monsters in sight, as the Selkies, Rebeccas, and other assorted creatures are back and more lethal than ever before. For someone who’s never read the book, the movie might seem like a bit of a mess. The truth is that Meyer has made some pretty significant changes to the source material, and while there are still some spectacular creatures in Eclipse, it is not the same as what readers expect from the series. The good news is that it’s one of the most beloved films of all time and will likely be recognized as such when it is released this coming December.
The Making Of Breaking Dawn
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 is the final installment in the franchise. It was first released in December 2012 and adapted from one of the most beloved novels from the series, Twilight. When speaking with EW, screenwriter and director Bill Condon acknowledged that adapting this material is a huge undertaking. That is because the book is the culmination of three decades of storytelling, and it finally gives us some answers as to why the vampires of Twilight seem to have abandoned humanity. The result is one of the most controversial films of all time, sparking intense discussions online regarding the ethics of its story. While it was certainly entertaining and filled with dazzling special effects, it is important to consider the source material that went into creating this unique vision of the future of cinema.
Part two of the final chapter in The Twilight Saga is, quite simply, the most ambitious film yet. Not only does it contain the spectacular return of the vampire legend, but it also pushes the boundaries of what is possible on screen. Unlike most films, this movie does not have a clear protagonist, as the story will be told through the eyes of multiple characters, each of which plays a significant role in the resolution of the saga. We can confirm that this is, in fact, one of the most extraordinary films of all time, and it is set to be one of the biggest releases of the year. If you’re a fan of the franchise, then you owe it to yourself to see this unique and unforgettable piece of cinema.
The Making Of A Masterpiece
With this year’s lineup, we’ve seen some pretty incredible movies. The fact that they come from a relatively small team is even more impressive when you consider the complexity of some of these stories. It’s always amazing to see the sheer amount of talent that goes into creating a film, and these movies prove that it doesn’t necessarily take a massive team to bring a story to life on screen. With the right writers, producers, and directors, anything is possible – even if it’s fiction.
