We actually have real news here. *Gasps*
It’s a dangerous world out there, and sometimes the most important survival skills you need may not be widely known. But, thanks to some people willing to devote some time and effort to help you people out, there are some great websites out there created for the benefit of the people.
I mean, where would we be if we couldn’t tell the subtle difference between cheese and a post box? (Click here) And our favorite vampire film, Twilight, has reeled in 70.6 MILLION dollars in from opening weekend alone. (Take that, Bolt!) If you haven’t seen it already, you should consider going. It’s amazing. Same with the soundtrack. Buy the soundtrack.
But what’s inspiring about the Twilight story is how that even though the movie had no widely known stars, not very much violence, was created by a small film company with a not very well known director on a tight budget, it was a hit. I think that the story of the movie breaking records even though critics didn’t expect it- at first- to do well, it did. A true underdog story!
To give you an idea of where Twilight stands on the opening-weekend box office list of recent movies, here’s a nifty chart from Yahoo! News:
1. “Twilight,” $70.5 million.
