‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon’ makes ‘Guinness World Records’ book

www.examiner.com: The Twilight Saga: New Moon has become a part of Guinness World Records 2011 for its successes in the box office.

The Twilight Saga: New Moon also has number one opening day and single day gross totals as well as the biggest midnight opening.

Each year, the Guinness World Records book chronicles the biggest, smallest, longest, and shortest records associated with nearly every conceivable aspect of the world, but being placed in the text is a very coveted feat, so it’s a pretty big deal that New Moon made this year’s cut.

Jackson Rathbone Speaks on Breaking Dawn Filming

www.thehollywoodgossip.com: The Twilight Saga star will appear on No Ordinary Family, a critically acclaimed new series on ABC. He’ll also reprise his role as Jasper Hale in Breaking Dawn, which comes out in November 2011. THG spoke to the actor this week and asked him about filming the latter…

What are your thoughts on working with director Bill Condon?
I’m extremely excited. I think we’re very blessed to have a director of his level being in this film. We’ve had such amazing directors and now we have an Academy Award winner directing the last two installments. It’s lovely because I get to learn something from each director. Their style and the way they run sets. One day when I pick up a script and start directing it myself, I’ll have a lot more to learn from. I’ll be able to use, or basically steal stuff from the directors I’ve worked with.

How do you feel about filming in Louisiana?
Louisiana is my home state. I’m from Texas to a certain degree, but my mother and my father were both born and raised in Louisiana. I get to see family, so that means real Louisiana home cooking, and there’s a very important aspect that we’re bringing a lot of work into Louisiana at a very difficult time for the state. It’s been one thing after the other and it hurts me that things are the way they are but hopefully we’ll be able to bring a little ray of sunshine, which is kind of funny since it’s a vampire film.
