Teenage Girls Have Spoken, Twilight Trumps James Bond

| Filed under: Twilight

vampires.jpg

Two weeks before the film even hits theaters, Twilight shows have already sold out.

According to Fandango, Twilight is accounting for two-thirds of all ticket sales and more than 100 premiere screenings have already sold out. This bodes well for the teen vampire love story and its burgeoning franchise.

The established James Bond franchise can't keep up. Quantum Solace is doing well overseas, but here in the States, with its premiere only 8 days away, the new 007 accounts for only 6% of Fandango sales.

It might even reflect a change in movie audiences, with most of Twilight's audience mostly comprised of teenage girls, as oppose to the young male demographic studios usually target with films such a Quantum Solace.

Inneresting!

    Re: FAGS SHOULD BE SMOKED! – I agree. And I miss your teats!



  11. 11

    …I think James Bond and that cute little vampire boy should be boyfriends. Maybe they can find a place to "Hideaway"…



  12. 12

    balsac, harrybalsac.



  13. 13

    why is he so white? is that makeup?



  14. 14

    Re: Major Dude – LOL.



  15. 15

    I want to see both as well, but won't go opening night. I went to the Dark Knight on opening night and it was CRAZY!!



  16. 16

    Re: _Alice_ – dontcha worry, i'll whip those suckers out again….i'm really not feeling this whole 'new me'……….



  17. 17

    And she said" Off, Fuck off!"



  18. 18

    I just got my tickets for the midnight show. :D



  19. 19

    Totally random question. If Edward Cullen was born 1901, was a soldier, and was changed in 1918, why is his hair so big? I'm sorry, it's just bothers the heck out of me every time I see the movie stills. I know, I know, totally random.



  20. 20

    whatever I'm going to wait for the movies to be on watch-movies.net anyways



  21. 21

    *ahh* *in love with spunk ransom*



  22. 22

    Re: FAGS SHOULD BE SMOKED! – Oh, please keep this one!! That Skillcraft pen is doing wonders for the dustbunnies in my twat.



  23. 23

    Re: Mater Motley – Because he has to keep up with the times and "blend" in as much as possible to keep up the charade.



  24. 24

    Re: devil_dawg_wife – Oh, and Edward wasn't a soldier, Jasper was.



  25. 25

    Re: Mater Motley – I know!!!! That fucks with me too!!!



  26. 26

    NO FUCKING WAY! TEENAGERS ARE DUMBASSES!!!!!!!



  27. 27

    Re: Major Dude – HAHAHAHA!



  28. 28

    PEREZY! Get the jizz off RP's face, his mom is watching!

    And Edward Cullen was never a solidier in the book-just a schoolboy with dreams to join the war effort. His hair works for the timeline for that time period.



  29. 29

    I already pre-ordered my tickets!! Midnight showing showing, bitches!



  30. 30

    I could follow up by saying, "piss on it" but that would probably be over the top…



  31. 31

    ps: perezy-one correction. the fandago sales show that just less of half of those tickets sold are going to broads over 25—Edward brings out the cougar in all the ladies, as well as propelling tweens into puberty faster than normal! Good job Robert Pattinson–causing a collection female hard on across the nation that knows no boundaries in terms of age, color, or creed!



  32. 32

    Re: devil_dawg_wife

    That would be logical, except he has no biological functions, therefore wouldn't hair growth be an impossibility? Unless he walks around wearing extensions. As I recall from the books, there was never any mention of a hairpiece. Did I miss that?



  33. 33

    Awesome, Rob is sooo cute!!



  34. 34

    I'm no history expert Matley, but when you look at other films that portray young men/school boys around WW1 time, you see a similar hair length. Take "East of Eden" for example with james dean–his brother's hair Is almost identical to Robert's hair in the movie. Edward's hair is just styled to fit the times a little better. That would be my take.



  35. 35

    I already got my tickets to the midnight showing! Can't wait.



  36. 36

    Teenage girls? I wouldn't be so sure that they are the majority Perez. Iwould say women, like me, are. The amount of women in their late 20's-30's that are massive fans IMO out number the teens.



  37. 37

    Oh and I got my mindnight showing tickets online last night.

    your sucking way too much dick if you think QoS is going to lose out to this movie, one, Bond is prob showing in way more venues so those sellout numbers aren't even relative.

    That NYU drama degree does little for ya huh?

    HAVE YOU BOUGHT YOUR TICKETS YET????
    I'M GOING TO THE 12:01AM SHOWING ON THE 21ST, FRIDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHTS AS WELL!!!!!!!
    I'M SO EXCITED!!!

  41. ISSA says – reply to this


    41

    I'M SO 29 AND MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY ARE OLDER THAN I WITH ONE YOUNGER WHO ARE ALL GOING TO THE 12:01AM SHOWING. THEY ARE JUST AS EXCITED!!!!

  42. ISSA says – reply to this


    42

    ………..AS ANY TEENAGER IS!!!



  43. 43

    "teen girls"…????
    Hmmm…
    Me and my friends are the over 30 crowd and we bought up 17 tickets for the 1st midnight showing… and then actually bought up another showing for the next night… "Older" women have the good taste to enjoy the book, Robert's portrayal and have the high limit credit cards that we can have the movie theater keep putting more and more showings on our tab… :)
    ————————————————————
    p.s….Perez failed to mention that the Twilight Soundtrack will rank #1–just came out 11/4 and is selling out everywhere…



  44. 44

    What if James Bond became a vampire? Think of the possibilities.



  45. 45

    I will be there opening night



  46. 46

    Re: ISSA – Clean up that puddle of pee your standin' in.



  47. 47

    Teen girls may be the ones screaming… but the amount of 20 and 30 year old chicks is sort of outrageous as well. Speaking for myself slightly ofcourse haha.



  48. 48

    Lots of adults are into Twilight, too! The books are lots of fun!



  49. 49

    Re: Mater Motley – I don't think the issue of his hair is ever addressed in the books. I think a vampire's hair does grow in the books, but you'd have to ask Mrs. Meyer to make sure. he is probably trying to blend in and have hair that represents what a typical 17 yr. old would have in today's world. I am sure it wasn't the same in 1918 - just like his clothes.



  50. 50

    I'll be watching Bond. While Robert Patt. is very hot, the Twilight story actually really, really sucks.



  51. 51

    Re: MinervaCullen – No, women don't outnumber the teen fans, but woman are a large percentage of the fans. It is aseries that a lot of mother/daughter pairs read together, too.

    QofS is unbelievably popular in the UK. I've seen it twice since last Friday when it came out. Twilight doesn't come out here until 19th December because they moved Harry Potter to next year but its sure to be the Christmas movie. I saw the trailer for Twilight ironically when I went to watch QofS (which is a great movie) and I thought it was fantastic. Already made plans to book tickets in December and go on the opening night. It's also the day that the Christmas holidays officially begin. :)



  53. 53

    oh my…



  54. 54

    Since when does anyone care about pre-pubescent tweenie girls opinion?????? They are irrelevant human beings.

  55. D-Bag says – reply to this


    55

    I'd take both of their loads.

  56. Watty says – reply to this


    56

    I am going with a group of 15 of us opening night, and we range in ages 26-55. We didn't even buy tickets on Fandango, we bought from a group of Twilight Moms that rented out the theater for 2 showings….

    I love Rob and Daniel Craig, British boys make me want to do naughty things :) I will be seeing both movies and drooling!



  57. 57

    as a twilight fan, I think it's important for the media NOT to overhype the movie, as if it's going to rival James Bond and Harry Potter at the box office. It's not—it's going to make big money, but not in THAT tier of box office money like those big weights. Twilight was made on 37 million and is basically a first love story. That's a much harder sell to a broad audience than a James Bond movie. So, please Perez, don't overhype twilight-it will only make people say it's a failure when it doesn't open at 80 million dollars but like 30 or 35 million.



  58. 58

    oh, and I think both bond and cullen look hot in the picture!



  59. 59

    Yeah Twilight!!! I can't wait for the movie either!!! I really hope it's close to the book… The Twilight series is one of the best I've ever read.



  60. 60

    I don't know if anyone already mentioned it, but it's Quantum OF Solace! God, you're an imbecile, Mario! You appear to be so uneducated and just plain dumb. And it's also pathetic how you are stealing word creations from Michael K. Leech!



  61. 61

    Re: Mater Motley – actually, edward wasn't a soldier. Jasper was a soldier, Edward was just in the hospital from influenza.



  62. 62

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
    GO TWILIGHT!!!

    I already have my ticket for the premiere where i live!! =D
    EXCITED!!!

    im probably going to see this movie 20 times in theatres!! =P



  63. 63

    saw Quantum of Solace today! Hah! Was okay. I wasn't crazy excited or anything, but i didn't fall asleep either. Very different from the typical james bond movie, so that much i like :)



  64. 64

    I bought midnight showing tickets! yay!!!



  65. 65

    Yup yup!! I bought mine too!! I'm super excited to see Mr. Pattinson!!



  66. 66

    Rob Pattinson should be Bond. I'm sick of Craig. He looks like a blow up doll. Pattinson has that finesse and class that reminds me of an early Bond. Lets go back to that.



  67. 67

    Rob is up for a gladiator style of film. I think I might die in ectasy if Rob was dressed as a Roman.



  68. 68

    im glad i already got my ticket for twilight i love rob pattison so effing much! :]

  69. PFF says – reply to this


    69

    Hah, who cares. quantum of solace doesn't show americans in a great way anyway- it's us brits that are better. And twilight is making a kill and is making Rpatz a huge old star…and he's a brit. fantastic.



  70. 70

    Pattinson is beyond adorable. He's raw sex and a cuddly puppy all rolled into one. I cant think of any other actor who combines sweetness with down and dirty in the same way.



  71. 71

    Rob said in the EW interview that he wants to play Jeff Buckley. He's be perfect in the role if they ever get off their backsides and make it. The film's been hanging around and nearly made for years.



  72. 72

    can't wait for both, y'all!



  73. 73

    Edward Cullen kicks James Bond's ass!

  74. itsme says – reply to this

  84. 84

    Re: Jenny2 – Haha yeah perez. Your missing a total chunk of it.
    Shes right, the soundtrack shows how populra twilight is. So ha!



  85. 85

    OF COURSE ROBERT PATTINSON IS POSITIVELY GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  86. 86

    Re: MinervaCullen – EWW OLD LADIES DONT LIKE TWILIGHT MORE THAN THE PEOPLE IT WAS WRITTEN FOR UMMM TEENS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THATS JUST CREEPY



  87. 87

    Perez. Your immature. Why do you feel the need to put jizz on Edward? He could probably kick your ass.



  88. 88

    Maybe cause teen girls dont care about Action flicks! James Bond will be way better than stupid ass twiglihhtjgftt



  89. 89

    HEY PEREZ!!! WE WANT MORE ROB!!! :D



  90. 90

    Re: FAGS SHOULD BE SMOKED!
    yessss…. he plays a vampire… :D



  91. 91

    already got my tickets. that's for sure!

    for midnight and the next day on friday!



  92. 92

    YES!! Of course more people are going to see Twilight over James Bond. There is only so much spy stuff you can see before it gets a little worn.
    Twilight is the BEST!!



  93. 93

    I'll be there for the midnight showing! Hopefully people don't squeal and act like a-holes throughout the entire movie. I really hate that…

  94. Joker says – reply to this


    94

    I already got my midnight showing tickets!
    I'm so stoked!



  95. 95

    ah twilight!!



  96. 96

    I'd take Daniel Craig over Robert Pattinson's ugly ass anyday.



  97. 97

    EEEEEEEEEEEEP!
    Robert Pattinson is sooo fucking sexy.
    Twilight Is Going To Be The Movie Of The Century!

    CAN'T WAIT!



  98. 98

    The whole Twilight series & film is overhyped & over-rated. It may have beaten QoS in ticket sales, but it necessarily doesn't mean it's better. There's a reason why the Bond films have lasted 40+ years & have been loved by many generations, including mine & my dad's. Its popularity grows & grows. Twilight will never be able to beat that, let alone even come close to the standard for all films that the legendary Bond films set. Twilight may win in the box office but almost everyone knows who the real winner is. 007 forever!

    Re: euro_glam86 – I don't think Twilight will do well over here in the UK.



  100. 100

    I cannot wait to support Twilight, especially after the rumors flying around the net that if it makes 150 million the studio will greenlight the other books to become movies!! We all want more Rob!!! And three more movies to sit through and swoon over his gorgeousness sounds absolutely fantastic to me!!! Let's all get out there and buy some tickets, pass it on, tell friends and family to go see it as well!!! Let's get the word out!!!! ;)
