Bella Swan once quoted Robert Frost, Some say the world will end in fire. Some say in ice. ¦ 

Well, Bella, we cannot be sure how the world will end, but for some people the world would be incomplete without Twilight, argued to be one of the greatest sensations to mankind.

For those of you, Niagara University TwiHard fans, prepare yourself for the exciting and thrilling premiere of the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I, on Friday, Nov. 18. The movie, inspired by the book written by Stephanie Meyers, is expected to be the greatest film yet. All the Anti-Twlighters, be prepared to roll your eyes at girls gushing over Edward or Jacob and raving over yet another movie.

The adventure started in 2008 when Twilight first hit the big screen, stealing the heart of millions of fans throughout the world. The movie is a modern-day Romeo and Juliet story, with much more drama and action, leaving fans speechless and at the edge of their seats. Breaking Dawn will not be any different.

A wedding. A pregnancy. A broken heart. A choice. A new vampire. More Jacob Black shirtless scenes. Sounds intense, right? These are just a few of the many twists and turns that will occur in Breaking Dawn.

For those of you out there that have not heard about Twilight, the love story takes place around Bella Swan. Bella is a very clumsy, plain and intelligent girl who has always referred to herself as strange Edward Cullen is the dreamy, mysterious boy who every girl drools over and Jacob Black, the hot bod, sweet guy who fights for what he wants. The three-way love triangle started when Bella moved to Forks, Washington, where she laid eyes on the most handsome guy she had ever seen, Edward. Edward is different, just like Bella. He will not go to school when it is sunny outside. He never eats. His skin is pale and as cold as ice. Sound familiar? He is a vampire, but not just any vampire. He broke all code of ethics and fell in love with the all-American girl next door. Then there is Jacob, another different individual. Like Edward, Jacob falls in love with Bella too. But he is not cold-blooded. In fact, he is warm. Very warm. Jacob is a werewolf, the vampire's sworn enemy. The Twilight Saga is broken into four movies, Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn.

In the newest addition to the series, Bella once again finds herself in danger. No longer does she have to worry about Victoria trying to kill her, but she must beware the Volturi, the vampire coven whose mindset is to change her into one of them, a blood-sucking vampire. Bella and Edward are set to get married, and start their lives together. However, there may be a bit of trouble that stands in the way of their happiness.

Many NU students are very excited for the big premiere. Senior Stacey Walker is absolutely thrilled and plans to buy her ticket for the midnight showing ahead of time. Walker saw the third movie at midnight in theaters as well.

I thought it was the best movie so far of the ˜Twilight' series. With this movie being split into two Walker knows that the audience will be left with some cliff-hangers, leaving fans impatiently waiting for Part II. Walker read all four books, and not just once.

I am happy with how they ended, just sad that they had to end, she said.

Like the old cliché saying though, all good things must come to an end and for those TwiHard fans that includes the Twilight Saga.

Other NU Twihard fans discussed how they feel about the series.

Junior Amanda Gorlewski, likes Twlight because It is fun to watch, it is always exciting and I do not get bored with it. It shows a lot of adventure and there is something new always happening.

Senior Sabree Gamel said, I just love the romance in the books as well as the movies; it's the type of romance all girls love to watch in movies with a twist.

Stephanie Meyers is a great writer, said senior Kaity Augustyniak. I wish Catherine Hardwicke would have directed the movie a little better to portray the details Stephanie wrote about.

Not everyone is a fan of Twilight, Junior Julie Hunt dislikes Twilight because she feels as though the entire saga is a bunch of girls obsessed with this fantasy world. Unlike the girls who drool over the pale faced Edward or the tan, muscular Jacob, Hunt does not find any of the characters attractive.

I think the idea of this obsession over vampire love is stupid, she said. Hunt never read or watched any of the Twilight films because she wasn't interested in them, but has seen the Twilight craze from a media perspective. From this she has seen the obsession with the actors themselves and who they are in their real life too.

Whether you are a Twilight fan or a Try harder Twilight individual, the questions remain. Will Bella and Edward get married? Will Jacob ever accept no for an answer? Is Bella really pregnant? Will Edward turn Bella into a vampire? Will the Volturi try to kill Bella?

There is only one way to find out “ go and see the premiere of Part I for yourself, or if anti-Twilighters, shake your head. After all, as Bella says, No one will surrender tonight, but I won't give in. I know what I want. Know what you want, and enjoy the addicting, original teen-love romance story.
