Twilight Trailer Provides More Questions Than Answers

I’m still waiting to figure out if the teen-vampire phenomenon represents a collective fear of AIDS or a collective fear of Mexicans. And this teaser trailer is not providing very many answers:

OK, I guess I get it. Teenage girls are obsessed with vampires because they provide a psychological release for dealing with our collective fear of hydroplaning mini-vans. I can’t believe I didn’t see it before. Duh. Also, that guy is a keeper, right ladies? There’s nothing like a guy whose response to “I’m not scared of you” is a creepy smile and a shoulder-dislocating arm-drag into supersonic flight. What is that? He couldn’t be like “I’m glad, let’s go fly around the forest together”? He had to be like, “You just don’t know me well enough to be scared of me. You will.” What do we think of this movie? It kind of just looks like The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants With Goths.
