Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Bite Me

He's not getting that thumb backThe “Twilight” juggernaut rumbles forward: Variety was estimating a $37 million take in its first 24 hours — which, says the piece, could translate into an opening weekend somewhere north of $55 million.

(That seems somehow off to me; Saturdays are bigger days for business than Fridays, so wouldn’t we be looking at a weekend gross closer to $75 million? Or are we being conservative in our estimation for the sake of respectability?)

Anyway, to milk the whole vampire-romance thing, here’s my latest Sympatico/MSN gallery, featuring six memorable examples of fang-banging. And yes, “Underworld” is largely memorable for Kate Beckinsale’s rubber suit.

  1. I was glad to see Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon made your list, but go back even further…Frank Langella and Kate Nelligan in Dracula leave Gary Oldman and Winona Ryder looking anemic. I don’t care if people think the movie is good or bad. Langella has PRESENCE. (Okay,I may have had a bit of a crush on him when I was a teenager.) Can’t wait to see what he does as Nixon.

  2. But it could be said he sucked the life out of American trust in politicians. So if Obama restores that trust, does that mean…?

  3. I was sort of thinking it would mean Obama was either King of the Vampires or Van Helsing. Wouldn’t most of us like to see him drive a stake through Cheney’s heart? (Bush isn’t powerful and evil enough to be Dracula…he’s more like Renfield.)
    Damn. Since the American election, everything keeps turning back around to politics – even my Langella crush. How does one break this addiction?
