TWILIGHT SAGA NEWS FOR FEBRUARY 25TH

“NEW MOON” DELETED SCENE – “BOB’S BIKES”

Check out the following deleted scene to be featured in the “New Moon” DVD’s additional footage.  This one is called “Bob’s Bikes”, setting the stage for Bella to wake up and break her promise to Edward to not do anything reckless.

“ECLIPSE” MARKETING: UP AND BUZZING — FOR A GOOD REASON

from thewrap.com:

It wouldn’t be a stretch to suggest that Summit Entertainment could drop “Eclipse” into theaters, practically unannounced, and expect brisk business. But despite its swooning, demographically homogenous and well-connected fan base, the film has some hurdles to clear if it hopes to match the more than $705 million that the first sequel, “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” made in theaters last November.

For one thing, this is the first “Twilight” movie to come out in the traditional summer blockbuster season. By its June 30 release date, “Eclipse” will already be crowded by heavyweights such as” Iron Man 2,” “Sex and the City 2,” “Shrek Forever After” and “Toy Story 3.”

And contrary to conventional wisdom, sequels are not always a sure thing – especially No. 3. While there is little chance of “Eclipse” turning into a “Godfather III” flop, many a franchise has reached its sell-by date before its last offering.

PALE IS PRETTY, THANKS TO “TWILIGHT” – PRODUCTS TO ACHIEVE THE LOOK

from independent.co.uk:

Twilight mania has previously resulted in dubious beauty trends including New York hipsters sporting fangs in nightclubs. But now skincare experts say the movie’s stars’ paleness is a notable trend among teenagers, possibly resulting in fewer skin cancer cases.

British paper, the Daily Star quoted Eric Jimenez, global make-up artist for Urban Decay Cosmetics, as saying: “Due to films such as Twilight, people have begun to see that pale skin can still be sophisticated, timeless and glamorous.

ACTION VS. ACTING: TAYLOR LAUTNER AND ROBERT PATTINSON’S DIFFERENT CAREER PATHS

from ivillage.com:

No one in Hollywood is hotter right now than Twilight actors Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. Producers are clamoring to put them in movies, and the two actors — Pattinson, 23 and Lautner, 18 — can pretty much make any kind of film they choose. So it’s interesting that their post-Twilight movie careers are shaping up to be so drastically different.

Lautner, 18, has just signed on for an action thriller called Abduction, about a man who discovers his own baby picture on a missing persons website. Lautner will also be playing a super-powered secret agent fighting terrorists in the film Max Steel, a martial arts fighter who has to save his kidnapped friends on vacation in Cancun, and the titular body-stretching superhero in Stretch Armstrong. Notice a pattern here? Lautner is definitely gunning to be the next big action hero, following a path similar to the one Will Smith took in the mid-90s.

KRISTEN STEWART AND DAKOTA FANNING IN NEW TV SPOT FOR “THE RUNAWAYS”

Check out the new TV spot for Kristen and Dakota’s upcoming film, “The Runaways”, opening  in theaters on March 19.

Yay!!!  I’m so excited to see the deleted scene.  I am so ready to get my hands on a DVD and watch all of the extended footage.  I would also like to see Bella rescuing them from the trash…how did she get them into the back of the truck in the first place?!

Do you think that Summit needs to keep up their A-game with the marketing for “Eclipse”?   Could the other summer blockbusters keep “Eclipse” from being as successful as many expect it to be?

I wish I had $3M in spare change – I would totally buy that house.  To own the home where all members of the Cullen Coven were actually present at one time would be so freakin’ awesome! It’s  a nice house, too!

I have to admit that I’m a bit surprised that the folks at ReelEmpire had to ask their readers about the girl on the back of the motorcycle.

Does the f.y.e. “New Moon” DVD offer appeal to you?  I’ll have to pass on that one.  The closest store to me is about 25 miles and it’s honestly not worth the drive for a lip gloss when I can go get my DVD at the Target 2 miles from my house.

The look at Taylor’s and Robert’s career paths is interesting.  I agree with their assessment that there could very well be Oscar buzz in Robert’s future if he continues and I also love the parallel to Johnny Depp’s career.  He made some strange choices along the way, but it certainly didn’t hurt him.  Throw in the fact that Depp wanted a music career before he got into acting and there are even more similarities.

Again, I am so looking forward to seeing “The Runaways”!  It will be nice to see a different side of Kristen and Dakota, not to mention the story of a group of women who changed the world of rock and roll for women.
