Exclusive: This manly Immortals TV spot slams Twilight

Nov. 17, 2011by:

There's something to be said for a movie that knows its audience- especially one that knows it's going to get trounced at the box office this weekend by another film and realizes it's the perfect counter-programming. Case in point, IMMORTALS.

The latest IMMORTALS tv spot makes fun of everyone going to see THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN (PART 1), as it rightfully should. The spot hits the airwaves tonight but we have the first exclusive look.

Enjoy, real men!

Twilight needs to be mocked, mercilessly

Its a REGRESSIVE movie. It sets women back about forty years. A protagonist who is consistently helpless, clueless and needs bloodthirsty males to fight all her battles for her. This is a stupid trope that was killed off by Disney Princess movies for crying out loud. Ariel & Jasmine took far less shit from the male power structure.

Please, for the love of Sigourney Weaver, have Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Vasquez from Aliens show up and waste all the glittering vampires, waxed chested

I'n more sick of Twi-Haters than the movies anymore.

Just let it go. They're going to make one more after this to finish it out and then it's done. Move the fuck on.

I don't even hate them for being shitty movies. Its that girls are seeing these movies and its leaving extremely negative impressions upon them. 12-year old girls who need positive, strong female role models are instead relating to a smug, dismissive, subservient collaborator named Bella. Fuck that shit.

I laughed. I think it's pretty great marketing. And it's obviously done tongue-in-cheek, not meant to be taken as some kind of serious critique of the Twilight series. In fact, I think it makes fun of its own genre as much as it does Twilight. I don't really know why the first two posters took it upon themselves to get so worked up about this.

Urmm. Not really. It keeps guys from getting laid actually. Have you seen the benchmark this thing has set? You either need to be pale-as-f**k, brooding, constipated, and sport a 6-pack OR be tanned, clueless, and have the ability to morph into a f**kin' beast (literally) to get laid in the few weeks before and after a showing of any Twilight movie. Plus any mention of silver bullets or stakes is going to reintroduce you to your new best friend, Mr.Right Hand, for an indefinite amount of time.

Immortals Is The F*cking Boss!

I feel sorry for the guys who will be forced to take their girlfriends this weekend even after watching this. Take it easy guys, we all know that as cool as Immortals may be, not getting a piece of pie for the next 6 months isn't really the best game-plan. Endure, fellas. Do it for the blowjobs. Now go. And be strong! For as much as you may want to stare at Frieda Pinto's gorgeous bum for a few seconds, you'll have to watch vampire childbirth instead, as if regular childbirth wasn't scary

I am no Twilight fan or apologist, but come on already. The mocking of the series is almost as irritating as the series itself is made out to be. If you don't like it, don't see it. Otherwise, just shut up about it.

I agree. I'll never understand why people who claim to not like those movies insist on talking about them even more than the damn fans. How hard is it just to ignore something instead of constantly bringing it up?

I love this post. The haters who claim to hate these movies talk about these very same movies ALOT more than the actual fans.

Agreed, a lot of girls out there hate a lot of movies that we like. You don't see them flipping there shit about it every other day on some website.

Thats the fucking greatest thing ever...

I actually clapped in my room and laughed so hard. HAHAHA. it's so fuckin true too. I can't wait till that shitty movie is gone and forgotten it ruined the vampires. Vampires die in sunlight they don't glitter. I hope they change the ending and everyone dies. :) that would be the best. I do hear the new one is pretty violent when that chick gives birth or some crap. I wished the devil baby would eat her.

I was gonna' say - you really don't get out much do you? I mean, the commercial was semi entertaining but not the stroke of comedic genius your reaction seems to infer.

Dude that isn't even funny, it's just a true statement. I'm really starting to think guys are just really fucking insecure and feel the need to bash the thing that all these girls love so much, grow up a little bit man.

Box Office

BO proves that guys are not willing to spend their money on mediocre films whereas women will break records for them. However men will inflate returns for said undeserving flicks for the rare opportunity of some heavy petting.

The last people that should be mocking another movie are the ones that made this IMMORTALS tripe.
