The theater that I normally go to pulled it first. I went with my best friend, who was a *gasp* New Moon virgin, on the 13th - the last week it ran there. When I couldn't find the poster in the lobby to take our picture by, I new its days were numbered. So I had to do a little Photoshopping in order to add it to my ongoing post. (To see the entire post, click here.)
Me & Michelle
(The picture was taken when we were cake cutters at the
wedding reception of the sister of the guy who gets me my
movie tickets and gave me the three movie trailer reels.)
Then my daughter came out to the house with a friend that we were basically meeting for the first time. In the course of the conversation, Twilight came up. Shocker, I know. Not sure who brought it up, either ;) Her friend said that he had actually seen Twilight but not New Moon and that he wouldn't mind seeing it. SCORE!!! So it was that I found myself going to what would end up being my last viewing of New Moon in the theater with another New Moon virgin. It couldn't have been more perfect, actually. The theater was pretty full. It was a vocal group, so I knew that, like me, they were all scrambling to see it one more time. Nick was a good sport about getting his picture taken with me. My daughter, not so much.
Nick & Me
(We had to go outside to find the poster. The mist, the cold,
and the bright lights didn't make for a great photo op.)
Well, I'll show her. Here is a picture of my beautiful kids, Danica and Travis, at my niece's wedding reception.
And I have to admit that my heart literally skipped a beat and I got a little weak in the knees when we got to the theater and there in the lobby was the Remember Me poster. It is heartbreakingly beautiful...he is heartbreakingly beautiful...the movie is going to be heartbreakingly beautiful.
So with New Moon gone from the theaters, I officially need to switch gears. Rob is in pre-production for Bel Ami. Remember Me hits the theaters in mid-March. Eclipse will start making its run in June. I have read the script for Bel Ami and Remember Me (working title Memoirs) and have Eclipse (or some version of it at any rate) but have yet to read it. I'm not sure if I will, actually. If my kung fu is strong enough, I plan on only watching the official trailers for Eclipse and experiencing the movie in that context. I'm not opposed to looking at set pictures or official movie stills, but I don't want to watch "leaked" videos like I did for New Moon. The way I felt after watching the entire breakup scene online made me almost physically ill. It was the first time I felt I had seen too much. I think it would have had a much more emotional impact on the big screen if I hadn't already seen it.
I've been pretty vocal about being disappointed about Remember Me being given a PG-13 rating. I've also been pretty vocal/pissed about the casting of the female leads for Bel Ami. But you know what last night's appearance of Rob at the Hope for Haiti telethon proved to me? I'm okay with all of it. Maybe it was the wine I was going through during Drunk Mad Libs at Twilight Sagapalooza. Maybe it was the fact that it felt like it had been years since I'd seen him or heard his voice. It's all irrational, I know, but whatever it was, I like the way that I feel today.
These are scripts that he fell in love with. These are movies he wanted to see made. These are movies he will grow as an actor in. Do I wish they all could be rated R? Of course. But then again, this is still one of the sexiest kissing scenes I have ever seen...it's PG-13...they are fully clothed. Sometimes, less is more.
Then there's this PG-13 seat squirmer.
And let's don't forget that Little Ashes will be out on DVD soon. I've seen enough YouTube clips of Little Ashes, The Summer House, and The Bad Mother's Handbook to know that Rob is sexy no matter how he looks or who he's kissing. Don't get me wrong. I have my fingers crossed that Bel Ami will be X-rated...er...R-rated, but in the meantime, there's always ff ;)
Like Mrs. P's story at TwiBite.
(I'm going to make you head over to her site for the
link so that you look around while you're there!)
Speaking of which, my super bloggy BFF sent me this for being her beta. She didn't have to, but I'm psyched she did. Pocket Edward and I love the mug, and we love Mrs. P.
I love that mug – and I love this one.
Socialite Life has tons of great pictures from the Hope for Haiti telethon, as well as an article and pictures with Kristen at the Sundance Film Festival.
