I know I am pathetic, but I have really been having a hard time deciding if I wanted to watch or see (or hear, for those of you who made sound files of "the moan" in New Moon the second it came out - I'm lookin' at YOU, Twigasm Podcast!!) any Eclipse footage prior to June 30th. Part of me was thinking that it would be cool to not have any idea what I was in for when I walked into the theater that day. To be a complete and total virgin...
But then, something happened.
This tweet happened:
And all my resolve went out the window faster than Edward that first time that Bella woke up and kind of caught him standing in her room watching her and any question I may have had about what I might be able to keep away from was answered.
There is NO FUCKING WAY I would be able to go see Remember Me on March 12th - and know that they will be showing the Eclipse trailer - and not watch it. It would kill me. Possibly literally. If it didn't kill me, I would certainly kill Jenny Jerkface if she watched it and I didn't. What would I do - leave the theater while the trailer played? Stand outside the doors like a total tool listening to everyone go "SQUEEEEEEE!!!!" and then come in afterwards? No. No. NO. I am not that strong. I don't think I want to be that strong. And I know I would see spoilers anyway so there's no point in kidding myself into thinking that as a Twilight blogger and person who doesn't live out of the mainstream loop that I could avoid seeing some of the stills or footage. I don't want to freak out over it and frankly JJ and Mr. Snarky would probably both want to kill me if I tried to stay totally spoiler free. JJ and I have already been discussing the seriously redacted posts that she will have to send me if she want me to read her stuff before she puts it on the blog (which is generally how we both work/write).
So I am going to watch the trailer. And that's IT.
Here's my rationalization: watching the Twilight trailer a gazillion times did not ruin the movie for me. At ALL. If I am being totally honest here (and I am almost always), the movie ruined the trailer. Really. I'm not even kidding. Watch this again and tell me that it isn't awesome! And not in a "it's hokey but I love it to death anyway" way -
This STILL give me chills. No shit. And it has over six million views.
Eleven million views... Also very awesome and possibly more awesome than the full movie. Which is what a trailer is supposed to be. The best of the best. Well played, Scummit.
Oh and I love the full length movies, too.
For the record: the poll in the upper left-hand corner of the blog? Only 8% of you are going to be virgins. And I applaud you. But I can't to it. I'll be joining the 29% of you who are "Just The Tippers" but not the 58% of you dirty sluts who want all the spoilers you can handle buried balls-deep as hard and fast as you can find them. Whoooores!
I love you all.
