TWILIGHT SAGA NEWS JUNE 23: ECLIPSE PREMIERE, STEPHENIE MEYER & MORE

Artist on Artist: Peter Facenelli, Kellan Lutz and Sam Endicott

MySpace: A couple of Cullens from ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’ debate the pros and cons of being a vampire with Sam Endicott whose band The Bravery has their single “Ours” on the ‘Eclipse’ soundtrack.

Review: Twilight: Eclipse

Catherine Hardwicke made Twilight, Chris Weitz did New Moon and a new director, David Slade is at the helm of Twilight: Eclipse.

He’s no stranger to teen “angst” as we saw in the chilling Hard Candy, and he has previous experience with vampires with the sleek and scary 30 Days of Night.

This relative newcomer to the big screen says he struck it lucky with Twilight: Eclipse.

“We were lucky we get the best story, filled with the most action. It goes back to explore the original stories and it ends in a major battle,” said Slade.

“We still have the difficult emotional triangle between Edward (Robert Pattinson), Bella (Kristen Stewart and Jacob (Taylor Lautner) but I got the instruction to make Edward dangerous.

Twi-Hards Camp Out Days Before L.A. Premiere

Twilight fans, often called Twi-Hards, began camping outside Nokia Theater on Monday morning at 6 a.m., four days before the red carpet premiere of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.

There are literally hundreds of them packed into a cordoned off, tightly secured area and they’ve each been given a wristband that grants them access to the “viewing area” prior to the premiere.  In other words, they’re not waiting for tickets inside to see the show, just for the chance at glimpsing stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner.

CBS News says roughly 9,000 wristbands will be issued before Thursday night, but these are the exceptionally fanatical 500-600 people eagerly awaiting their arrival.  EW reported some fans drove from Florida and another flew the 9,300 miles from Perth, Australia to be there.

‘Twilight: Eclipse’: Dakota Fanning on vampire bowling and prom

What do vampires do when they have a little down time? Apparently they go bowling — and not necessarily all that successfully.

That was the gist of the story “Twilight: Eclipse” star Dakota Fanning related to Jay Leno on “The Tonight Show” Monday (June 21).

She talks about going bowling on an off day during the filming of “New Moon” — candlepin bowling, it sounds like from her description — and how difficult it was to keep score without the electronic aids present at most bowling alleys: “They handed me a piece of paper and a pencil, and I had to do the score by hand,” she says incredulously. “It was hard, it was hard. You couldn’t see the pins from that far away!”

Taylor Lautner Talks Filming ‘Eclipse’ Shirtless

Two years ago, with the role of Jacob Black at stake, “Twilight” heartthrob Taylor Lautner famously packed on nearly 20 pounds in order to reprise his role as a lovesick werewolf in the sequel “New Moon.” Lautner’s chiseled, ripped abs were ogled by Twilighters and became fodder for blogs that follow young Hollywood.

Moviefone ‘Unscripted’: Nikki Reed, Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene

Moviefone has a new ‘Unscripted’ interview with The Twilight Saga: Eclipse Cullen Family members Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz and Nikki Reed where they discuss what character they would play ten years from know in the Twilight remake, fight training and more.

Tomorrow is the big premiere and then Eclipse will be just around the corner for those of us who didn’t camp out or attended the premiere :( But we’ve still got a lot of good stuff to keep us busy. Remember that tonight airs Jimmy Kimmel’s ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’ and more interviews and videos are on the way. I loved the Unscripted one, Kellan’s eyes sparkled when he was asked about an Emmett book, “Emmett’s memoirs”, that would be good. I will patiently be waiting for that day that Midnight Sun finally comes out. It might be the same events from Twilight but their is one airport scene I would really like to know. It’s so fun to hear little set stories from the cast, hope we get to see muddy Paul :D
