This weekend, the new Twilight movie, New Moon broke the single day box office record, taking in over $72M on the Friday. The previous record holder, The Dark Knight, clocked in at just over $62M. Now, there’s been some disappointment among the mostly male “comic book” fans that the record was lost to a movie about teenage vampire angst. I personally don’t see a problem with that. I think it’s great that tween girls have something they can put their support behind and call their own. I only wish I had written the books myself because had I done that, I’d be taking dumps on solid gold toilets in my mansion right now. I digress however.
Kevin Smith appears to have the same attitude that I have. In the clip above from Comic Con 2009 held last summer, Smith opines on the whole Twilight thing. He uses some strong language at times, so if you’re offended by potty mouths, you might consider skipping this one. Nonetheless, he is quite funny.
