‘Twilight’ Cleans Up at MTV Awards; New Trailer for ‘Breaking Dawn’ Revealed

It seems the Twi-Hard community showed up in force, as The Twilight Saga: Eclipse cleaned up at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards, winning in five of the six categories it was nominated in. Best Kiss went to Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson, who apparently celebrated his win by planting one on co-star Taylor Lautner; the film also won in the Best Fight, Best Female and Male Performance, and Best Movie categories.

The show, which was broadcast live, also delivered the very first official trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1. You can view the trailer below:

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 will be in theaters November 18, 2011.

My Thoughts on The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (Spoilers!)

It is very rare for me to go to the movies twice in one month, let alone twice in one week. Yet that is exactly what I did this week, having gone to see the midnight release of Eclipse and then going to see The Last Airbender tonight (you can find my thoughts on that movie here).

Eclipse is probably the only movie in the Twilight series that I can say I loved, and will probably still love a year from now (unlike the other two, which I’ve grown more and more disenchanted with as time goes on). Everything was just better in this film, in my opinion. The acting was better (not a lot of ‘overacting’ in this one). Secondary characters were able to shine a little more in this movie. And there was more than one fight scene!

Basically I’m saying all of this to waste space, so that anyone who doesn’t want to be spoiled can have time to look away before I go into specifics on what I did and didn’t like. 🙂

THE LIKES:

Flashback scenes: For me, the best part of the movie were the flashback scenes, especially Rosalie’s. In Eclipse, Rosalie went to being the vampire bitch with immortal PMS to being a sympathetic character, and an unlikely ally for Bella (in her desire for Bella to remain human). The movie delivered that scene perfectly, and Nikki Reed was finally allowed to shine. She said recently in an interview that they did film the part where Rosalie is flying up and down the hallway in her wedding gown, torturing Royce before she kills him, but that it was cut from the final product. I’d have loved to see that scene.

Jasper’s flashback scene was very short and to the point, but it was also done pretty well, and allowed Jasper and Bella to intereact more in the movie.

The story of the third wife was one I did not think they would put in the movie, so I was very glad to see it there. Any scenes where we get history on the secondary characters have always been my favorites in the books, because it’s refreshing to hear about someone other than Bella all of the time.

Love triangle: I think the love triangle was done pretty well; not too biased one way or the other. Taylor Lautner played Jacob with just the right amount of confidence and vulnerability, and Robert Pattinson didn’t overdo his character. In the book, Edward is a lot more comfortable around Bella, and for me, that really came across in this movie. All three actors seemed a lot more comfortable with each other.

The “birds and the bees talk” between Charlie and Bella: Probably one of the best and funniest scenes in the movie. Period.

The humor and playfulness between the Cullens: We got to see a little of the fun interactions of the Cullens in Twilight, but no real “family” interaction with them since the baseball scene. Here, we saw some playfulness with Alice and Jasper (not to mention a kiss, finally!). Emmett was his usually cocky and playful self, and it was very fun to see. The training scenes where the Cullens take turns sparring against each other was probably the most we’ve seen them together, as a family.

Abs, abs, and more abs: Let’s face it, aside from Kellan Lutz (who is – after all – a model for Calvin Klein underwear!) Taylor Lautner probably has the best body on the set. And Eclipse gave us plenty of opportunity to verify that fact. The rest of the wolf pack aren’t so bad, either, but since they only got minimal screen time, Taylor was the one who received the cheers and sighs from my fellow movie watchers.

THE DISLIKES:

Victoria: Nothing against Bryce Dallas Howard, but she is so not Victoria. Where Rachelle Lefevre played Victoria with a certain arrogance and confidence, Bryce’s Victoria seemed unsure, vulnerable and scared.

The over-hyped character of Bree Tanner: Yes, I read “The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner” and felt a connection to this character, which is what I’m sure Stephenie Meyer wanted. But seriously? All the press, interviews and references to this character during promotion for the movie, and she was on screen for maybe a total of five minutes. If that. She probably spoke three lines the entire movie. Why go through the trouble of making us care about this character beforehand, just to have us question it when she’s treated as an afterthought in the movie? Oh yeah, to make more money off of Twilight fans. “The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner” has sold over a million copies since it’s June 5, so I guess Stephenie Meyer and her team accomplished that much, at least.

These are all probably the most prevalent thoughts I have towards the movie at this time. Again, compared to Twilight and New Moon, this film was less “cheesy” and has better direction, and I can sit through the majority of this movie without feeling like I want to cringe (a reaction that I have now almost every time I watch Twilight). Seeing as how Breaking Dawn was my least favorite book, I hope that the director who helms that movie will do as good a job as David Slade did with this one.

Twilight Night Event (Follow-up)

Before I drown myself in Potter goodness for today, let me hurry up and get my thoughts down about the Twilight Night event I attended this past Saturday.

The event, which was one of several held across the country, was held in the courtyard of Midtown’s Atlantic Station community and attended by several hundred people. Summit gave fans a red carpet, where photos could be taken against one of three backdrops. The first 200 fans received a gift bag, which contained an Eclipse t-shirt, key chain, mini-poster and a New Moon ink pen.

Free t-shirt included in gift bags

There were free vendors everywhere: the popcorn stand where fans received an “I was there!” button commemorating the event; the Luna Twilight make-up booth where two technicians gave free Twilight makeovers; free snack vendors; and Atlanta radio station Q-100 conducted a live broadcast, complete with about 20 pairs of tickets given away to an advanced screening scheduled for tonight (which I unfortunately did not win). There was free face painting and temporary tattoos, and a game booth as well.

There were also vendors where – for a low cost – you could purchase candied apples, ice cream, Italian ice, funnel cakes and other goodies. The event was set up very much like a street fair, and even with the crowds, there wasn’t a feeling of being overwhelmed or crowded.

The event officially began with a live performance by local band Stellate, who played some of their original tunes, as well as “Decode”, Paramore’s track from the original Twilight movie. This band is awesome; you should go check out their music on their Myspace page.

There were some contests as well; five contestants had to make up Twilight-related poems and recite them on stage; the winner received a VIP package that included tickets to the advanced screening and some autographed items from our guest, Daniel Cudmore (who plays Volturi member Felix in the movie). There was supposed to be a costume contest, but if anyone there was better than these two girls, I didn’t see them!

Daniel then came onstage and participated in judging the trivia contest – where at one point he stated, “what am I even doing here? They know more than I know!” He also answered questions from Q-100’s Brandon, and was generally very fun to listen to; very humorous, very funny, and very humble. Did I forget to mention he’s very good-looking? My daughter had a great seat up front, so we have proof! Daniel was also very nice enough to sign a few books/magazines for my daughters, one of which included my current issue of Film Fantasy: Eclipse.

Daniel Cudmore during Q&A

After the Q&A, there was a screening on the green of  New Moon, which we did not stay for. By this time, we had been outside in Atlanta heat for almost five hours, and the children were demanding food. But we got freebies, photos and autographs, so it was a day well spent.

Daniel Cudmore is scheduled to return to Atlanta during Labor Day weekend, as a guest at Dragon*Con. For more information, visit the Dragon*Con website.

“Deathly Hallows” Images Online; Trailer Due Tomorrow

Ron and Hermione at Shell Cottage

Images have appeared online from the new trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which is scheduled to be released online tomorrow. The trailer, which will also be shown during previews for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, was screened last week at Cinema Expo and a reviewer had this to say on Twitter:

New Harry Potter teaser will play with Twilight’s #Eclipse next week and includes footage of both part I & II. Best trailer of year so far! Based on the FANTASTIC teaser at CinemaExpo, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, 2D looks amazing in itself– no need for 3D

I will be posting the trailer tomorrow at my HollywoodNews Harry Potter blog, but in the meantime, I’ll leave you with these photos…

Twilight Night Event


This Grown-Up Fangirl is currently sitting in Atlantic Station in Midtown Atlanta, enjoying the atmostphere at Summit’s “Twilight Night” Event. The official activities just began, with free popcorn and snacks, free face-painting and temporary tattoos, free makeovers by the “Luna Twilight” make-up team, and gift bags to the first 200 fans. The gift bags included an Eclipse tee, keychain, mini-poster and a New Moon ink pen.

There’s a stage set up for a live band, and the inflatable projector just went up for the screening of New Moon. Atlanta’s Q-100 radio station is also broadcasting live from the event. They are also giving away 2 tickets to an advanced Monday night screening of Eclipse.

“Total Eclipse of the Heart” Twilight special on Jimmy Kimmel (VIDEO)

Twi-hards got a very special treat Wednesday night when ABC aired Jimmy Kimmel’s Twilight: Eclipse. Most of the major cast was there, including the Cullens (all except Kellan Lutz), the Wolf Pack, members of the Volturi and newborn vampires. The show had its moments of awkwardness – such as when Jimmy proclaimed to Bryce Dallas Howard that she was “the best Victoria ever”, and when Jimmy had unclothed Edward and Jacob dolls, but the chemistry between the cast was undeniable and it was very fun to watch them interact with each other. There was also an “exclusive” clip, which was the beginning of the battle scene that we’ve seen in the most recent trailer.

The sections that I absolutely hated about the show were the lack of intelligent questions asked by the audience (one girl asked whether or not Taylor’s abs were airbrushed on…seriously) and the Twilight parody done by the cast of Jersey Shore, whose popularity and significance in pop culture I’m still trying to understand and figure out.

If you missed it, video of the show can be viewed below in 12 parts, and also on Kimmel’s website.

In The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, directed by David Slade from a screenplay written by Melissa Rosenberg, Bella (Stewart) once again finds herself surrounded by danger as Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge.

With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella is confronted with the most important decision of her life.

About the TWILIGHT SAGA film series

But neither can deny the attraction that pulls them together…even when Edward confides that he and his family are vampires. The action-packed, modern day vampire love story TWILIGHT, the first film in the series, was released in theatres on November 21, 2008 to a blockbuster reception.

“Twilight” stars back out of DragonCon

While browsing the official Dragon*Con website today, I noticed that previously confirmed guest Kellan Lutz (Emmett) has been removed from the guest list, due to “professional commitments”. This is a double whammy for Twi-hards, since Ashley Greene (Alice) was removed a few weeks ago for the same reasons. As of today, Chaske Spencer (Sam), Alex Meraz (Paul) and Daniel Cudmore (Felix) remain on the guest list.

New clip from “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”

A new clip from the upcoming Eclipse movie, the third installment in The Twilight Saga series has been found on the web. Mr. Edward Cullen himself (Robert Pattinson) sets up the clip, which features a Cullen family discussion on protecting Bella from whatever forces are stalking her out.

Also, according to Alex Meraz (Paul) via Twitter, Access Hollywood will premiere another clip tonight at 7:30pm EST. I’ll post the clip as soon as it’s available online.

“The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella” now online

“The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella” is now available for free online at http://www.breetanner.com. This novella gives readers a glimpse into the pre- and post-transformation life of Bree Tanner, a young girl who falls victim to vampire Victoria’s plan for revenge against Bella and the Cullens.

The book will be available online for free until July 5th, but interested readers can also purchase a hardcover copy of the book, where $1 of each purchase will be donated to the American Red Cross.

New “Eclipse” TV spots and “Introducing Bree Tanner” video (Updated)

At the end of March, I posted the news that Stephenie Meyer was planning to release a “mini-novel” on the life of Bree Tanner, one of the newborns vampires that Victoria creates for her army in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. Now, Summit Entertainment has released a short video “featurette” introducing us to the character.

In addition, there are two new TV spots for the movie, which opens on June 30.

“Something New”

“Missing”

Two new clips from “Eclipse”

Two new clips from the upcoming movie The Twilight Saga: Eclipse have made their way online. The first is the confrontation scene between Edward and Jacob that premiered on last week’s Twilight-focused Oprah Show.

The second clip looks to be the beginning of the highly anticipated “heart-to-heart” between Rosalie and Bella, where Rose opens up about her past and conversion from human to vampire.

I am really looking forward to the scene with Rosalie, as that was one of my favorites in the book, and probably one of the best written in the series. What do you think?

“Breaking Dawn” salary disputes settled; Cullen Family returns unbroken

With yesterday’s news that the salary disputes regarding Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene had been settled, Summit Entertainment announced that all of the actors who portray the Cullen family in “The Twilight Saga” movies will return for “Breaking Dawn”, which is scheduled to be released in theaters on November 18, 2011. This comes as a relief to a majority – if not all – Twihards, as we’ve already dealt with the re-casting of one fan favorite (Rachelle LeFevre was replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard for “Eclipse”).

Speaking of Eclipse, just a reminder that it will be in theaters on June 30, and that tickets are available for purchase at Fandango.

Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner to appear at Twilight Convention

It is the con of all Twilight cons! Creation Entertainment has announced that the three main stars of The Twilight Saga movies – Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner – will appear at The Twilight Saga: Eclipse fan convention in Los Angeles, CA June 11-13, 2010. The trio will be available for a special Q&A session on Saturday the 12th; however, fans will most likely be disappointed at the following – it states on the website that they will not be available for autographs or photos ops.

Twilight fans will still get their money’s worth for the weekend, as the lineup is huge – one of the largest lineups I can ever remember seeing for a Twilight Con. The following guests are scheduled to appear:

All 3 days:

  • BooBoo Stewart (Seth Clearwater)

Friday only:

  • Justin Chon (Eric)
  • Tinsel Korey (Emily)

Eclipse stars on Oprah (clips – UPDATED)

Thanks to http://www.eclipsemovieorg.com, there are clips available from today’s Oprah show starring the stars of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. These clips will most likely be removed quickly, so hurry up and watch, and I will update this post with permanent clips as they become available.

This clip is of a scene where Edward confronts Jacob after the kiss (Eclipse readers are well aware of what I’m talking about; I will not spoil it for non-book viewers).

And here are videos from the actual show, broken down into five parts:

Part 1:

Part 2:

Part 3:

Part 4:

Part 5:

Oprah’s website also has some shorter videos of the show (the surprise visits, backstage Q&A, etc) at this link. If you click on the first video, the rest will automatically play in order.

Day full of Eclipse goodies

There’s a lot of activity going on today in the world of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. First off, as a HUGE Robert Pattinson fan (every since he portrayed Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire), I wanted to wish him a very happy birthday!!

Next, a reminder that today’s Oprah Show will focus on the movie, with stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Dakota Fanning. The Oprah Show airs at 4:00pm EST.

Last, but definitely not least, a new clip from the movie has been released at the Apple Trailers website. The new clip features members of the Volturi witnessing Victoria’s newborn vampires cause destruction in the city, and they discuss the possible consequences of those actions.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is due in theaters June 30. Tickets will be available for advance purchase tomorrow on Fandango.

10 second preview of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse trailer

A 10-second preview of the new The Twilight Saga: Eclipse trailer is here, one day before the first official trailer will be released (at 6:00am tomorrow morning).
