don’t know why summit decided to open the 3rd film in the twilight franchise smack in the middle of the world cup and on the even of the quarter finals. everyone in europe, asia and south america will be glued to their screens. well,perhaps minus the countries that don’t have good teams (like in scandinavia and belgium). but this just confirms that americans tend to be completely clueless when it comes to cultures that don’t have anything to do with america.
and despite the fact that japan, the last asian team competing in the world cup, got eliminated yesterday during that marathon of a snooze called a game, people in japan still have their favorite teams. and the reports that twilight screenings are a madhouse in brazil so cannot be true. especially not this weekend. if brazil wins on friday, it will be one long party weekend in sao paulo.
but let the robert pattinson backlash begins. apparently it is already starting.
