Vamp Love?


So, y'all know that I am a HUGE Twilight fanatic.  This cover just came out on Stephenie Meyer's website.  He is just NOT. HOT. ENOUGH. to play Edward.  Ugh. 

What do you think?

I totally agree! Edward is supposed to be too hot for words. This guy just isn't cutting it for me. I can't wait for the movie, though.

Ugh. I'd have to agree after seeing that picture. I've seen pics of him where I thought he might be hot enough but that picture certainly is not one of them. And strangely enough Kristen looks TOO hot to be Bella in that pic. YUCK.

I'm so torn about seeing this movie. Part of me wants to and part of me wants to run screaming the other way. I don't want it to ruin the books. I'm sure I'll see it anyway.

Who would you have picked instead of Robert Pattinson? I haven't come across anyone that IS Edward, ya know?

I agree....he's a totally, bad, bad choice...

I've only just started reading the Twilight series and no, Edward he is not...

It's almost sad - the harder they try, the worse it gets. I keep telling myself to wait for the movie and give him a fair shot but seriously - that Donald Trumpy hairdo? The mossy looking sideburns? And the LIPSTICK?

I guess it's cool, since I'm a Jacob fan anyways. Does anyone know what Jacob looks like? Maybe they're setting us up to all root for Jacob because we all know she's gonna end up with him.

Who is he? He looks like a vampire ;)

Ok, so I'm gonna have to check out these books! The only vampire books I've read were Anne Rice....and I loved those. How do these compare? Better? Worse? Just different?

I don't know who Edward is....but the guy on that cover is not hot. Just my opinion.

Not only NOT HOT ENOUGH ubt UUUUGGGGLLLLYYYYY

Having never read the books nor exactly knowing about them except through a stupid Facebook application, I still don't think this guy is hot enough. First of all, his name is Stephenie (I thought I had it bad with Randi - shoot) and second of all, he's just not cute. Sorry to all of you Twilight fans (however, think of it this way...they made hot Brad Pitt and, at that time cute, Tom Cruist into not so hot vampires in Interview with a Vampire)

See? EW thinks they are trying to redeem themselves for leaving Twilight off their Top 100 New Classics list. They must have read my 2 posts about it. But oh, this is an unflattering cover. So many things to discuss here.

First of all, "Bella" is not supposed to be the ravishing heroine of a bodice-ripping novel. I'm supposing this was the photo stylist's attempt at glamorizing the movie. SO NOT NECESSARY.

Second, Robert Pattinson is much better-looking than this photo reveals. Is he "the" Edward we're all hoping for? I dunno. He looks good in the few movie clips I've seen. The film itself will tell the truth...we've less than 5 months to go now!

Finally...what the heck's up with this cheesy Fabio-esque cover? SO not the Twilight we all know and love. This is pure publicity at its worst. Blah!
Unknown said…
I agree with everyone else - Robert Pattinson is not hot enough to play Edward. I think Henry Cavill of The Tudors (Showtime series) would have been a much better candidate - he's super hot! Want to see a pix, type Henry Cavill into Google and look at the image results!
Tiffany said…
The hair is what is killing me most... and the fact that Bella looks like a streetwalker. Although, Kandace, I cannot see her boots, but who am I to judge, right?

Anyway, it looks like a porno for snow white with the apple and all. Wahhhhhh, I am so disappointed. Tomorrow, I will show you all who Edward should have been played by....

I haven't read these books, but I've heard that they are good. My little sister and my neice are reading them. They are 16 years old. Maybe that is the intended audience,
Alison said…
Nope, he is not hot enough. Not even close.
Heather said…
Okay, first of all his hair isn't spikey and tussled enough!!! His lips are all wrong and where do I begin on Bella? Why is she all dressed up like that?

This could be bad. VERY, very bad.

I need To READ THE BOOK! I am SO behind in life
Apple Joos said…
I'm crying a little on the inside. I was afraid this would happen. Even Kristin whatserface is all wrong to be Bella.

You're right! They picked a hotter girl than guy! He's supposed to be gorgeous! Were are the Brad Pitt's of 2008?
I can think of quite a few young actors who are hotter than this guy (even if I am a Harry Potter fan, sorry Cedric).
Amy said…
Ok I agree with all of you! No he is NOT hot enough. I haven't seen a photo of him that even comes close to attractive. This cover is the worst of them all! I have to say I was SO disappointed to find out who the actors were going to be. Now having said that -have any of you seen the MTV teaser trailers on Stephenie's site? I have to say it totally WORKS! They both looked great. I think we are all going to be pleasantly surprised how good the movie is going to be. Even if he isn't truly Edward (to us) he is going to have his yummy moments.

The hair and they eyebrows. And his fingers are too feminine. And his belt buckle isn't centered. The more I look at it the more I want to barf. Haven't read the book and this isn't doing it any favors :)
Rhea said…
I haven't read this series but keep meaning to...and I can tell you that guy on the cover is just not hot period.
Jennifer P. said…
Nope. Too girly. Even Orlando Bloom would have been all wrong. They really needed to go find some fresh new face that no one had seen or heard of before. We're all just going to look at him and go "oh--it's Cedric Diggory. I thought Voldemort killed you--but looks like you turned into a vampire instead". And I've only read snippets of the Twilight series, but I can have my opinions too, right :)?!
Tinabean said…
I'm agreeing with you I pictured Edward completely different in my mind.
He's not hot enough or built enough in my opinion.
But some people are saying just wait til you see the movie because he fits edward perfectly when he's acting as edward.
I guess we'll have to wait & find out.
CaraBee said…
Now I definitely have to read this book. I don't know Edward but this guy is not cute. I mean, he's okay in a wouldn't-mind-if-he-were-dating-my-sister kind of way, but not in a wow-I-want-to-ogle-his-hotness-on-the-big-screen way. Oof, too many dashes.
Mama Dawg said…
I don't know. I think it might just be a bad pic. The few clips I've seen on line make him seem not that bad.

However, I really don't have a clear pic of him in my mind.

They've photographed her WAY too hot for what she's supposed to look like.

Oh, what a disappointment!
Anonymous said…
Not really my genre, but I would have to agree that he's not hot enough for much of anything!
KimmyJ said…
Thanks to the SITStas and LuLu - I started this series yesterday and am halfway through the first book -I bought book 2 today. Let's just say this is not my idea of what Edward looked like - he looks so feminine in this photo. This reminds me of how upset E1 got when Tom Cruise played the Vampire from Anne Rice's book.
~Sheila~ said…
Hopefully it's just the lighting and the angel and the make-up and the pose and....and...no. You're right. Not hot enough.

I bought the 1st book by the way.

Dom has already borrowed the 2nd and 3rd from his friend and read all 3 AND...returned the books back to his friend.

I'm such a slacker.
Lula! said…
Um. Waiting to see your choice for Edward. I know, I know...pmac. But let's not let that stand in the way of our Twilight love.

THAT.IS.NOT.OK

at all

Not even a little bit

Looks wrong
WheresMyAngels said…
No idea who Edward is or what Twilight is, but that man is not HOT!! If you incerted George Clooney when he played in Dusk To Dawn, that that would be HOT, okay, beyond HOT!
Heather said…
Greetings from a newbie SITSta! :)

Now, I am a huge EW fan - it is my faaaaaavorite magazine, so when I saw this cover, I was all "Huh?" 'cause, you know, I haven't seen this one yet. LOL!

I have no idea who those folks are and only vaguely recall hearing of the Twilight books, but it sounds like something I should truck on over to my library and check out, eh?

Cheers!
Manager Mom said…
I dunno. that guy looks creepy. I'm not into Twilight yet, but I LOVE vampire stuff... so I better get crackin'. I haven't had a vampire thing to be all fangirl since Buffy ended...
Anonymous said…
OK Did they even read the books before casting? If they had they would have NEVER picked those two! Edward is supposed to be sooo beautiful you would risk being crushed by him! What the hell is that guy? They went for a vamp not a god! It's all wrong. How will I ever watch that movie! Ok i will manage somehow. T I'm so bummed!!!!!!!!!

I just finished reading Twilight and an now reading New Moon. This series is awesome!!
Shannon said…
I haven't read this series (yet... its on my list, after I finish the new ones out by Janet Evanovich and Nora Roberts)... but I did watch the trailer online. The movie looks pretty good! It won't hit theaters until Dec, so I think I should have enough time to read the book before I see the movie :)
Sonya said…
Yeah...he is NOT hot and Edward MUST BE HOT! At least the one in MY head was when I read Eclipse in 2 days! :)

OOOOOHHHHH....Breaking Dawn....is it 14 days!!!!!! :)
Truly he is just not hot enough for how she describes him in book! In this cover shot he looks like a ghost.... not a chilsed take your breath away golden eye hot guy! Let's hope he has some amazing charisma that will make up for the no "hotness".

Anyone having a twillight party on Aug 2nd?
