NEW MOON LIMITED EDITION GIFT SET FROM AMAZON JAPAN
Check out the limited edition gift set available from Amazon Japan beginning on March 26. I wonder if the cover art for the DVD case will have the same Twilight-looking artwork or if it will be altered to look more like the artwork on the discs.
NEW STILLS FROM ‘REMEMBER ME’
Trailer Park Movies recently posted three new exclusive stills featuring Robert Pattinson in his upcoming film, ‘Remember Me’, co-starring Emilie de Ravin.
PATTINSON NOT ON THE SPIDERMAN RADAR AT SONYfrom thedeadbolt.com:
This week Twilight Saga fans of Robert Pattinson fans were frothing at the mouth like a New Moon werewolf over ridiculous rumors that Robert Pattinson was being eyed for the Spider-man reboot after the departures of Spider-Man director Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire. As some outlets tried to push the Spider-Man story about Twilight and New Moon star Robert Pattinson as the new Spider-Man, Pattinson was never a consideration for Spider-Man at Sony/Columbia.
Like most Robert Pattinson related Twilight rumors, the Spider-Man Pattinson rumor was completely false. To get to the bottom of Robert Pattinson as the new Peter Parker in the Spider-Man reboot, ET Online went straight to the Spider-Man source to ask Sony/Columbia whether Robert Pattinson was being considered for Spider-Man, which resulted in the studio denying the Pattinson rumor by saying, “Our first step is to find a director.”
TWILIGHT MOMS START JEWELRY BUSINESS
They say it all began with a purse, well actually, three purses. But it really began when the “Twilight” series swept the nation, first as bestselling books than as blockbuster movies.
And in the shadow of the Puente Hills, some Hacienda Heights moms found themselves enamored with “Twilight” characters and plots. But even they didn’t imagine that it would turn into a business.
“Our PTA president Mary Ting suggested we read the series. She’s a teacher at Los Molinos Elementary School and thought we would enjoy them,” recalls Michelle De La Vara.
In fact, Ting wasn’t even going to buy the best-seller by Stephanie Meyer until she saw some ads for the movie.
“It was 500 pages and I have two kids, so
I thought it would take all summer to read. I began reading it and couldn’t put it down until I finished the next day,” Ting remembered. “Then I ran out and bought the other books in the series and couldn’t put them down either.”
All the Twilight moms became hooked on the romantic tale of a vampire and a young woman.
“I loved the story of teen love. It brought back the memories of my first love,” admitted Kristina Maine.
“We are moms with busy lives but always manage to make time for our Twilight fix,” agreed De La Vara. “It is a great escape and an enjoyable, easy read.”
ROBERT PATTINSON AND KRISTEN STEWART RUMORED TO JOIN HAITIAN RELIEF PROGRAMfrom entertainmentandshowbiz.com:
According to reports the Twilight pair is getting ready to join George Clooney’s telethon plans for MTV Networks Haiti Earthquake Relief. “Hope for Haiti” will feature Clooney and his proposed list of stars that will include Robert and Kristen. Though nothing has been confirmed yet, the stars are ready to do their duty for the affected people of Haiti.
Hollywood Celebrities like Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Sandra Bullock, Madonna and others have donated huge sum of money for relief work and Clooney comes next on the line with his Telethon that is scheduled to take place on 22nd January and is said to be telecasted by CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, and MTV.
CHASKE SPENCER IS PACKING ON MUSCLE FOR BREAKING DAWNfrom latimes.com:
It ain’t easy looking buff next to weight-room prodigy Taylor Lautner, but that’s precisely the task at hand for “Twilight” wolf pack leader Chaske Spencer.
As alpha dog for the lupine gang, Spencer’s character Sam Uley has to up his game in the muscle department for each installment, especially for the franchise’s final film (or films?), “Breaking Dawn.”
I caught up with Spencer making the rounds at “Access Hollywood’s” Stuff You Must gift lounge in celebration of the Golden Globes. He’s looking plenty worked out, but still took some tips from renowned celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak.
‘He wants to put more muscle mass on,” Pasternak said of his chat with Spencer at New Balance’s Fierce Trax booth.
DAKOTA FANNING IS V COVER GIRLfrom latimes.com:
It’s been a breakout year for Dakota Fanning and Gabourey Sidibe, young talents with major presence in film for their roles in “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” and “Precious,” respectively.
V magazine took note and transformed them into glam cover models for its latest issue, shot by Parisian photography team Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.
Sidibe, who got the siren treatment with flowing locks and glossy lips, spoke about role model and “Precious” costar Mo’Nique: “She’s a plus-sized woman who didn’t care about one day being skinny.
“All my life I’ve been hearing that I’ll never amount to anything until I am skinny,” Sidibe said. “And she disapproved everything that everyone has ever told me.”
As for Fanning — the grown-up child star says don’t be surprised if she’s not squeaky-clean forever …
… because she may not be in Lindsay Lohan territory, but she ain’t perfect.
TWILIGHT FAN WINS CONTEST ON TWITTER – TALKS TO CHRIS WEITZ ON PHONE
Twilight fan JennyBrutal recently won the contest on Summit’s official Twilight Twitter and got to speak to ‘New Moon’ director Chris Weitz on the phone. She took to her LiveJournal page to share the conversation that she had with him.
1.) How nerve-racking was it to know you had to relocate several location for New Moon?
A.) It was really nerve-racking because I thought people would notice and be upset, it was a puzzle to get it just right. The outside of the school is all CGI, we built the stairway for the school and took stills. In the Cullen’s house I also tried to show different rooms in the house to add to the feeling of the house. When Taylor was traveling during Twilight a fan gave him a hand-carved Native American ornament. We used that ornament in Jacob’s room in New Moon.
2.) I know Edward’s car is now a dark silver, but was there any reason for the change?
A.) Availability. Volvo wanted to introduce a new car into the series, instead of the older model. So they provided a newer model, brown Volvo. Immediately we knew it had to be repainted, and chose a dark, non-shiny, black colour. It added more to the first Edward scene in the movie, the feeling is upbeat but the colour of the vehicle adds to the danger lurking.
IS ROBERT PATTINSON PROJECTING A NEGATIVE IMAGE WITH SMOKING?from thedeadbolt.com:
Although Twilight and New Moon actor Robert Pattinson is the perfect man in the eyes of many Twilight Saga fans, one aspect of the life of Pattinson that parents may take issue with is that Robert Pattinson smokes. Given the success of bothNew Moon and Twilight, the issue of Robert Pattinson as a smoker was bound to rear its ugly Twilight Saga head.
As some claim, the issue over the smoking habit of Robert Pattinson has been overlooked in the Twilight media in favor of the romance rumor between Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. But with a new set of Robert Pattinson photos hitting the web from a Wonderland magazine photo shoot, the images feature Pattinson with a smoke hanging out of his mouth, which have caused some Twilight and New Moon fans to question whether Robert Pattinson is projecting the right image to his young impressionable Twilight Saga fans.
The gift set from Japan is very interesting. I love seeing how the merchandise looks different in each country and how the cultural differences influence the products.
I love the new ‘Remember Me’ stills! I am really looking forward to seeing that movie and hope that people go into it with an open mind to see Rob as something other than Edward Cullen. I think that he’s very talented and he just keeps getting slighted by the critics and other haters.
Have any of you purchased any of the Twilight jewelry from the moms featured in the LA Times article? I checked out their website and they have some really nice items. I like them because they don’t just scream “Twilight”. I like that they are really symbolic and understated pieces that adults can get away with wearing out in public.
If George Clooney can get Rob and Kristen on his relief program, it’s obvious that the ratings would skyrocket. Whether it would result in more money being raised, who knows? I do find it funny that just a week ago, media outlets were trying to report a “feud” between Rob and George and now they’re making it sound like he needs Rob to make the program successful. Ridonculous!
Dakota Fanning’s magazine cover…Wow! While she’s not yet an adult, she’s certainly not a little girl anymore.
How awesome for JennyBrutal to get to speak with Chris Weitz. In reading her post, I found that she asked him many of the questions that I would have asked him – particularly, the color change of the Volvo. Although, I’m confused as to why Volvo provided a BROWN car in the first place. Surely they know by now that Edward’s car is silver!
What do you think about the comments about Rob’s smoking and the negative image that it presents? Personally, I wish that he wouldn’t do it. Both of my parents smoked, I have asthma, and I’m allergic to smoke. I think that it’s gross and unhealthy, but he’s an adult and can make his own choices. I believe that if kids are going to smoke, they’ll do it regardless of whether or not Robert Pattinson is doing it.
