Twilight is the most successful film by a female director.

Yes, the adaptation of tween vampire novel Twilight is poised to become the most financially successful film by a female director ever. The fact that this is true shows how little opportunity women get to direct with a sizable budget, but despite the apparent awfulness of the film itself, maybe this will prove to those studio bosses that women can make vapid cash cows just as well as men. Michael Bay is shuddering in his boots. Still it got 4 stars in empire magazine so maybe I'm being a bit pre-emptive. But probably not.

Apparently this is really popular among the girlies because of the main actor in it. And about half of the fands believe in vampires or wish they existed. Says it all really.
