The idea that people can become so hyped up about movies like the Twilight Saga and the Harry Potter series is beyond me. I’ve never stood in line for hours for a midnight showing of a movie. I haven’t read any of the books, but I have seen both movies and I probably will see Eclipse – just not in theaters.
Last night, the midnight launch of Eclipse earned over $30 million in 4,000 theaters. New Moon had only earned $26.3 Million.
Naturally, I knew that most of the news I would be reading about today were going to be about Twilight. I expected to hear the craziest stories. The first one that I saw included a video with this still:
The headline read: Angry Twilight Fans Rip Chicago Ridge Theater Projector After Projector Fail.
Believable right? It was Twilight, so I can imagine the crazed fans doing something like this. Just look at that woman’s manic eyes! After watching the video, I realized I did not see any psychotic fans ripping into a projector though that would have been AWESOME. My dyslexia/excitement got the best of me though because I realized the headline actually read Angry ‘Twilight’ Fans Rip Chicago Ridge Theater After Projector Fail.
Oh my bad.
