“The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” Releases Tonight At Midnight!
Tens of thousands of fans will be lining up with their tickets in hand for tonight’s midnight showing of “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”. The film opens worldwide tomorrow!
Elizabeth Reaser on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”
Vampire mom Elizabeth Reaser made an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night to promote “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”. Introduced by Kimmel the “Angelina Jolie of orphan vampire adoption,” Reaser jokes that she’s looking forward to “getting fat” and “getting color” during her break before filming starts for “Breaking Dawn” . They talked about the “unspoken rule” of staying out of the sun and how producer Wyck Godfrey called Nikki Reed last summer after seeing photos of her on the beach in Greece.

Bree Tanner Novella Reaches One Million In Sales and Donations to The Red Cross
At last count, sales for Stephenie Meyer’s The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella were up to 700,000 plus units sold, and now Little, Brown Books (of Hachette Book Group) has announced that the novella has sold over one million copies – resulting in more than a million dollars in donations from the company to the American Red Cross.
Ever since the announcement that Bree Tanner would be hitting shelves, we’ve known that the American Red Cross’ International Response Fund would receive one dollar from every physical copy of the book sold, and the organization’s Senior Vice President, David Meltzer, issued his thanks to Little, Brown Books, Stephenie Meyer, and, of course, the fans for the aid that this “awe inspiring and humbling” “generosity” has done to “help the American Red Cross respond to international crises, prevent life-threatening diseases, prepare for disasters overseas and provide support to help those in need around the world.”
Is There A “Team Bella”?
On June 27th, MSNBC published an article about the small “Team Bella” fan base, along with some rather unfavorable remarks about the Saga’s main character, Bella Swan. While the journalist noted a few Bella fans in the online space, she went on to provide several examples of why there isn’t a “Team Bella” like there is a “Team Edward” or “Team Jacob.”
What the author failed to notice is there IS a Team Bella and its presence is loud and proud. Nearly anyone who is a Kristen Stewart fan (and you can find droves of them on Facebook and Twitter) is also on Team Bella. It could be said that while most “Twilight” fans are on either Team Jacob or Team Edward, they are ultimately on Team Bella because they are looking out for her happiness when choosing either the vampire or the werewolf.
Justin Chon At “Twilight Night” In Phoenix
Justin Chon, who plays human Eric Yorkie in the Twilight films, surprised fans at “Twilight Night” in Phoenix last night. Sporting some very blonde hair, Chon answered fan questions, telling fans he was on “team werewolf” and that he’d love to have Edward’s power.
Kristen Stewart on “The Late Show with David Letterman”
Kristen Stewart paid a visit to “The Late Show with David Letterman” last night to promote “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”. During the interview, they talked about her pet wolves, actually dog/wolf hybrids. Fans were also able to see Kristen with lighter-colored hair and wearing a black one-shouldered dress, much like the white one she wore for last week’s premiere.
I am so excited about tonight’s midnight show! Are any of you attending the midnight showing where you are?
It was good to see Elizabeth Reaser on Jimmy Kimmel. It seems like she gets overlooked in so many things and I loved the introduction that he gave her.
What do you think of “Breaking Dawn” filming in Louisiana? Seeing how they will be filming in November, the climate is much more hospitable than the Pacific Northwest at that time of year. I do wonder what they will do for outdoor shots since the landscape and scenery is so different, though.
It is amazing that the Bree Tanner novella has sold one million copies in less than a month, but it’s not surprising. Have you read it yet? If not, it will definitely give you some insight into the scenes that feature the newborns in the film.
I love Kristen’s wolf-dogs! I wish that I had a big enough yard to have pets like that.
