KRISTEN STEWART ON JAY LENO
Kristen Stewart appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night as a part of the promotional tour for the upcoming film, “The Runaways”. She talked with him about the BAFTAs, her first big role in “Panic Room”, her presentation at the Oscars (including the cough incident), portraying Joan Jett and hanging out with the rock and roll legend. Be sure to watch for the clip from the film in the second video where Kristen is singing!
COMCAST “NEW MOON” EXCLUSIVE FOOTAGE WITH CHRIS WEITZ COMMENTARY
Comcast will have exclusive footage, including directory commentary. Here you can see the clip of Bella and Jacob’s confrontation in the rain. Director Chris Weitz discusses some of the challenges in the making of this scene, including the contacts worn by Kristen Stewart and the temperature of the water for the rain. Weitz notes that the water is so cold that you can see steam rising from Taylor Lautner’s body.
THE LATEST ON “BREAKING DAWN”
from 24-7 press release:
According to an inside source, the fourth saga and the most highly anticipated film in the Twilight Series, will be split into two movies, and filmed in 3D. “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I”, and “Part II” has not been confirmed “officially” by Summit Entertainment, however author Stephenie Meyer has stated, “it would have to be made into multiple movies because it is hard to imagine it fitting into ninety minutes.”
In addition, a new production company, Sunswept Entertainment, has been brought on board for Breaking Dawn. Sunswept Entertainment was created by Karen Rosenfelt, who is the daughter of former MGM Chairman & CEO Frank Edward Rosenfelt. Karen Rosenfelt served as Producer on both “Twilight” and on “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”. She did not work on “New Moon”, but is producing “Breaking Dawn” through her Sunswept Entertainment banner.
Fans can expect a massive talent search for the role of Renesmee Cullen, the half-vampire, half-human daughter of Edward Cullen and Bella Swan, just as there was for the roles of Seth and Leah Clearwater in “Eclipse”. Due to the introduction of this character, Breaking Dawn is going to be the most CG-intense film of the Twilight series.
PETER FACINELLI NOT PLAYING VAMPIRE BASEBALL
While “Twilight’s” Peter Facinelli is out, Nelsan Ellis, who plays the fabulous fry cook, Lafayette, on “True Blood,” has joined the charity Vampire Baseball game in New Orleans on Saturday, March 20.
He’ll team up with other Hollywood names and members from the New Orleans Saints to take on some of the “Twilight” cast.
Facinelli, who plays father figure Carlisle Cullen, was originally signed on, but he’s no longer on the roster.
FIRST “ECLIPSE” TRAILER IS RELEASED
In case you just returned from another planet or have been under a rock and aren’t aware, the first 90-second trailer for “Eclipse” was released earlier today. It features the voice-over of part of Edward’s proposal to Bella and is very much centered around the Edward-Bella-Jacob storyline and the choice that she has to make. There’s a little bit of the danger thrown in with a shot of Victoria and we also get a shot of Bella with Renee in Jacksonville. Click here for the video posted earlier today.
IMHO, Kristen seemed much more relaxed in this interview than she’s been in others. I love how she put things in perspective about her clearing her throat at the Oscars. Seeing how she’s known to be as clumsy as her character (e.g., dropping an award at the MTV Movie Awards last summer), she had a valid point if that’s the worst thing that happened all night. Seeing the clip of her singing along with the clips that I’ve seen of Dakota singing makes me really ready to see “The Runaways”. The fact that Joan Jett and Cherie Currie thought that the girls’ voices were good enough to tell their story speaks volumes because it would have been much easier for Kristen and Dakota to lip sync.
I am honestly tired of all the speculation about “Breaking Dawn”. I’m ready for Summit to make an announcement one way or the other (and we all know that it will probably back up the rumors of two films anyway). Let’s just get the show on the road!
