The phenomenal success of the Twilight movie saga, based on the novel by the writer Stephenie Meyer, who became famous overnight, surprised not only strict critics, but also the creators themselves. The first film had a very modest budget and did not claim much. However, the box office speaks for itself, this picture and its subsequent sequels became hits.
The Twilight book series was mainly aimed at teenagers. Well, who else could be so imbued with the romance of such incompatible personalities as a vampire and an ordinary girl? An adult immediately has a lot of additional household or other questions. However, the fact is that the story transferred to the screen has become popular not only among adolescents and young people, but also among older people. They hide their interest, secretly buy a ticket, go to the cinema alone, incognito, but still watch the films of the movie saga. And not only women, but also men. Why? The story, created by aspiring writer Stephenie Meyer, is impossibly simple. And at the same time, no one has ever created anything like this. Why are vampires so charming? This question is answered by Edward himself, the hero of actor Robert Pattinson, - "I am a predator, that is why I attract you." Edward is an eternal schoolboy, he is forced to constantly study in high school, because he was converted at the age of 17. He is almost 90 years old, and viewers are extremely attracted by the fact that Bella is the first girl who attracted his attention. "So this is real" - they think, and what girl does not want real love, even if it is a screen fantasy. The audience is also attracted by the theme of the impossibility of this love, because the vampire Edward is not able to even touch his beloved, at least at first. At any moment he can pounce on her and tear her to shreds, make her … food! But he doesn't, he LOVES. Bella changes the whole world for him, and he makes her world different. Why this story attracts men is anyone's guess. Although, perhaps for the same reason. Even if it's not fashionable to be a romantic now, you have to be strong and cool, but how can you hide from your essence? The essence of a person subject to passions? Many people are ashamed of their love for "Twilight", but, nevertheless, the facts are clear: people go to this film, and with each episode the popularity of the story only grows. The first "Twilight" was released in 2008, and since then many envious people have predicted an imminent end to the saga. It is called a soap opera, a snotty melodrama for teenagers, but it has been living for several years. You can spit and look for flaws, you can snort and shrug, but the popularity of the saga does not fade, but even seems to be getting stronger, despite all the absurdity of the development of the story, for example, the birth of a child from a vampire, although for years in numerous films about these bloodsuckers we have been told that this is impossible! But for fans of "Twilight" nothing is impossible, for them this is a real story. Who from the audience does not dream of being in the place of the heroes, because obstacles make love even stronger. And a stronger barrier than love between a living and an inanimate creature cannot be invented. This love is impossible, and yet it lives. This means that love is able to overcome everything! So, nothing is impossible! So we'll go to the theaters again and watch the continuation of Bella and Edward's story, handkerchief in hand, and hope we get the same strong feeling.
