Her count has now reached one: The film version of Twilight hits screens all across the nation tomorrow. Its bound to give other record-breaking films based on young-adult series a run for their money (were looking at you, Harry Potter!). Even those like me who havent picked up the book can enjoy the age-old tale of love between misfits. In this case, the star-crossed pair comprises Isabella (Bella) Swan, a human, and Edward Cullen, a vampire.
Shy Bella is somewhat of an outcast; when she moves from Phoenix, Arizona, to Forks, Washington, to live with her father, she suddenly finds herself at-tracting more male attention than she really wants. And Edward, the only boy Bella would consider dating, seems inexplicably repulsed by her, attempting to avoid her at all costs. When the two finally do fall in love, they find their union threatened by a vampire coven whose members think it would be fun to hunt Bella for sport.
Be among the very first to catch Twilight at a 12:01 a.m. showing at Colorado Cinemas in Cherry Creek (3000 East First Avenue), Arvada (5550 Wadsworth Boulevard) or Littleton (8035 West Bowles Avenue). For information on the film, visit www.twilightthemovie.com.
