OK so you all know that the ten second Eclipse uber-teaser was released the other day (my nephew asked Sister Snarky how many times she was going to watch it and then, in an effort to be helpful, recited all of the spoken lines verbatim, as it was obvious she wasn't getting something given her incessant Blackberry replays...), and then today the Big Kahuna 90-second trailer was cast out to the breathlessly awaiting masses! I haven't watched either because I am saving myself for the big-screen debut tomorrow night when I go to see Remember Me with Jenny Jerkface and Myg (Sister Snarky is copping out and going to see one of her kids perform in the school talent show... pffft! where ARE her priorities?!).
JJ and I went back and forth a few times after I informed her of the impending release of the trailers (she's not a very good spoiler whore, remember...[note from JJ: let's face it - I totally suck]) and she started to rub in the fact that I wouldn't be able to watch it given my role as the blog's pseudo-virgin. I was already planning on waiting for the pre-Remember Me trailer but since I despise being told what to do, I started reconsidering once she began taunting. Her logic seemed pretty convincing at the time - something about you can't get oral before "just the tipping" (and I am a bit of a pushover), so tomorrow night it is!
I honestly can't decide what am looking forward to more--I mean, the New Moon trailer made my heart race! I was massively excited to see it for the first time - and it made me all giddy every time I watched it afterwards. Which was often. Plus we will FINALLY get to see what David Slade's vision of Eclipse looks like - please please PLEASE let it be awesome!!! And let Edward look hot! All I know at this point is that Kristen Stewart had to wear a wig to cover up her Joan Jett mullet. Sooo... not off to a great start there but I'll allow it if he pulls the rest of the movie off with the treatment it deserves. Leg hitch! Leeeeeeeeeg hiiiiiiitch!!!
I haven't seen any footage from Remember Me other than the official trailer... Which I have seen a bunch! It's played before every movie I've seen in the theater since New Moon! Ok, most of those movies were New Moon, but that's besides the point. And word on the on the mean streets of Seattle (from VitaminR70 - who was at an advanced showing also attended by RPattsNews and a few other lucky peeps) is that our boy can act! Our boy can act - wooo!!!
I just watched this again aaaand yes. he. can!
Pertinent questions for Friday night:
Can I hold my breath for 2+ hours?
Will David Slade have whupped "whiny Bella" out of the movie?? Will we be able to tell this in 90 seconds of spliced-together footage?!
Will Remember Me be a good flick?! I mean RPatts aside?? [Note to people who think they can talk about a movie and assorted parts of a movie without revealing spoilers: most of you can't. Please stop trying - I know too much already!]
So what are your plans for tomorrow? JJ, Myg and I will be at the theater tomorrow night. Latchkey Wife is one-upping us and taking a long lunch (must be nice, beyatch!) - are you headed to the theater tomorrow? Are you heading back on Saturday as part of the whole "Remember Me Saturday" thing? Let's talk game plans in the comments!
