4 Movies That Will Fill the 'Twilight'-Sized Hole in Your Heart in 2013
The final installment of the Twilight series hit theaters last fall, forcing members of both Team Jacob and Team Edward to retire their fangirl t-shirts and find another movie to obsess about. Luckily for them, Twilight inspired a slew of teen fantasy romance films.
Here are four movies out this year at your local movie theater to help you get your fix of pubescent fantasy creatures.
1. Warm Bodies
With summer's hype over a possible zombie apocalypse, it makes sense that after years in the spotlight, vampires are out and zombies are in. Warm Bodies, which will be released Friday, is about a woman who falls for a zombie in a zombie outbreak aftermath. The more he gets to know her, the more human he becomes.
Warm Bodies is the perfect Valentine's Day date flick, and will be out Friday.
2. Beautiful Creatures
This lacks the comedic relief of Warm Bodies, but contains more drama. A new girl named Lena moves to a southern town, where she develops feelings for a fellow classmate. The community shuns Lena's family for being cursed. On her upcoming birthday, Lena will either join the dark side or use her powers for good.
Beautiful Creatures will be out on February 14.
3. The Host
Oh hey, another Stephenie Meyer-inspired film! In this futuristic story, an alien race takes over the world and inhabits bodies of humans. A young lady named Melanie is one of the few untouched humans left, but after she tries to kill herself by jumping through a window, the aliens insert an alien "soul" named Wanderer into her body. Wanderer begins to like Melanie and helps her keep other humans safe.
The Host will be out March 29.
4. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones
Clary Fray believes she's an average New York City teenager until she witnesses a nightclub murder invisible to everyone else. She has visions of the killer the next day and learns he's a boy named Jace who battles demons. Jace reveals that Clary is a Shadowhunter, an angel-human hybrid that kills demons and protects the world. Clary then receives a scary phone call from her mother, who is in turn kidnapped by a pack of demons who Clary must fight.
The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones will be out August 23.
