The Twilight Saga is hugely popular among teenagers and young adults, with a large and dedicated fan following and some pretty romantic quotes.
The first installment of the Twilight movie series was released on November 21st, 2008. This first movie brought in over $7 million in ticket sales from midnight showings on the 21st. The opening day saw over $35.7 million gross, and the US and Canada saw over $69.9 million over the opening weekend.
The franchise went on to be hugely successful. Based on four books by Stephanie Meyer, Paramount Pictures and later Summit Entertainment adapted the series into a five-part film Saga, starring Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner. The film series consists of Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn parts 1 and 2.
The Saga follows the relationships of Edward Cullen, a vampire; Bella Swan, a human; and Jacob Black, a Werewolf. The movie has all the complications of young love, with the added obstacles of the supernatural. Throughout the saga Bella has to be continuously protected from other supernatural beings out to hurt her, and eventually adapt to becoming un-human herself. All while she is trying to discover who she truly is, and who her heart really belongs to.
Despite it’s box office success, the critical response to the Twilight Saga has been mixed. New York Press critic Armond White called Twilight, “a genuine pop classic”, whilst Roger Ebert states New Moon “takes the tepid achievement of Twilight, guts it, and leaves it for undead.”
However, I believe that despite the mixed reviews from critics, the Box Office success and die-hard fan base speaks for itself. Here at 20 Twilight quotes from the film franchise, showing what makes Twilight so great.
