Let’s just face it, the only reason 99% of people go to see any movie in the Twilight series is to see the eighteen-year-old hottie, Taylor Lautner. I’ll admit, I am guilty of standing in line to see those famous abs. I do, however, draw the line at screaming at the screen. News flash ladies, your dear Taylor can’t hear you.
Crazy fans aside, skeptics must admit that Lautner has played a huge role in skyrocketing this mediocre series to the top of the box office. In all honestly, who would want to see a pale, hairy vampire when they could see a shirtless, tanned werewolf?
It’s Jacob versus Edward.
Any votes for the vampire? Anyone? Anyone? ….. That’s what I thought.
Taylor’s good looks have the producers laughing all the way to the bank. The movie Twilight grossed over $70 million in its opening weekend. The sequel, New Moon, more than doubled those earnings, pulling in $142 million opening weekend. The third part in the series, Eclipse, was just shy at over $121 million in the first three days of opening. Looks like Lautner’s muscular back pulled in some serious greenbacks.
So regardless of your level of devotion to the world of vampires and werewolves, people can’t deny that Taylor Lautner is a hot commodity. Now pass the popcorn and enjoy the trailer for the latest addition to the saga, Eclipse.
