It’s going to be a decade since the release of the last Twilight movie, a franchise that created a major buzz around the world during its tenure from 2008 to 2012, leading to a hell of a lot of influence and a couple of controversies at the time but a lot more memes today.
Created by Stephanie Meyer, the series is out-an-out a YA paranormal romance that platformed the careers of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. While the supporting cast of young actors failed to peddle their careers, therefore, the two main protagonists are now in the league of best actors.
This five-movie franchise had everything — sparkling blood-sucking vampires, a dangerous pack of wolves and a confused and silly teenage girl who is getting attention from all sides. What starts off as a simple love story between two different species, or as they like to say a lamb and a lion, turns into a full-blown action drama with exhilarating fight sequences and an almost tragic ending.
If you’re new to the world of the Twilight saga, we’re excited to welcome you and ensure summit entertainment.
Starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Billy Burke, Peter Facinelli, Taylore Lautner, Nikki Reed and many more drop-dead gorgeous faces perfect for playing vampire roles, this insanely popular supernatural love story — which can safely be called one of the most popular romantic movies on Netflix (in its own twisted ways!) to watch till date — consists of five parts of the twilight saga.
Adapted by the best-selling book series, the last one, Breaking Dawn, was divided into two films, giving shape to five films instead of four.
So, without further ado, let’s begin our “hunt” and list down the Twilight saga movies in order in UK:
Director: Catherine Hardwicke
IMDb Rating: 5.2/10
We are first introduced to Bella Swan in the series of Twilight films which is the first film, the seventeen-year-old girl who moved to Forks from Arizona to live with her father, a police chief. In the first glimpse, you’ll find her to be clumsy, and of course, she has an instant connection with Edward Cullen.
Edward (Robert Pattinson) is a vampire in a vampire world and he cannot resist her blood. “hostile Vampires cannot resist anyone’s blood”, you must be wondering. Well, this Edward is different, and he and his family are among the good ones who have consciously developed resistance to human blood by satiating their thirst by feasting on beasts.
So, when Edward realizes his uncontrollable attraction towards Bella’s blood, he tries very hard to stay away from her but in vain. This struggle dominates the Twilight saga, the first Twilight film with some unintentionally humorous moments.
And oh, Bella also has a friend Jacob(Taylor Lautner) whose family is not on good terms with the Cullens. Will this love bloom? Watch the movie to find out!
