Is it sad that, despite the fact that Bella in Twilight completely lacks agency, is a truly horrific role model for girls and women, and Edward is a seriously creepy stalker, I still want the film to be a huge hit just to prove to Hollywood that a blockbuster written and directed by women, about a lead female character, with a primarily female audience, can be a massive financial success without it being considered a fluke?

I definitely have mixed feelings here. I thought the book Twilight was highly overrated and it bothers me if publishers and film studios are going to start to think that this represents what women want in their entertainment. But I also stand to benefit to a massive degree if Hollywood decides that women-focused paranormal books make potentially profitable movies (since my book has already been optioned).
