Finally! After building up steam for months, the supernatural circus train that is “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” pulled into the station with the movie’s premiere Thursday night at L.A. Live, reuniting Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and the rest of the cast amid throngs of screaming fans.

Twi-hards who’d been camping out for days lined the red carpet — OK, it was a black carpet, matching the campers’ wristbands — along with media types from all over the world.

Robert Pattinson’s Message to Vampire-Hatin’ Miley Cyrus As you may have read here yesterday, Miley Cyrus is not a fan of blood-sucking dead people.

“I hate vampires,” she recently told me.

So what do Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner have to say about that? We caught up with the Twi-trio at last night’s Eclipse premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival to find out…

R.Pattz says he has a simple idea to get the “Can’t Be Tamed” singer to come over to the fang side.

It’s so obvious—just watch Eclipse.”

Musclehead Lautner doesn’t care if Cyrus is hating on vamps.

“She doesn’t need to like vampires. As long as she likes werewolves, we’re cool.”

Stewart was a bit surprised to hear Cyrus dislikes our favorite creatures of the night .

“She does? Is she scared of them or does she just not like them? I don’t think you should convince people of something if they already have their way of thinking about. Whatever—if she hates vampires, that’s cool.”

‘True Blood’s Anna Paquin says she’s never seen ‘Twilight’ movies

Anna Paquin, star of the adult-oriented HBO vampire series True Blood, says she’s never watched the Twilight Saga films.

“I’m sure if I was a teenager, I’d probably love it,” Paquin, 27, told Self magazine recently. “It’s all about age-appropriate entertainment – the values and morals and the whole idea of chastity and all that. There’s plenty of time for people to watch us sucking and screwing and doing all this nefarious stuff with each other on True Blood.”

Modern vampires are neither scary or sexy, children’s writers complain

Neil Gaiman, the best-selling Gothic children’s author, says the latest generation of vampires are not even scary.

He said that he was put off including a vampire in his latest novel because films and novels aimed at teens had spoiled the creature’s reputation for fear-mongering.

Robert Pattinson, who plays Edward Cullen in the Twilight film series, plays a character that contradicts traditional vampire characteristics. He is vegetarian and is able to walk around in daylight.

Speaking as he was awarded the CILIP Carnegie medal for The Graveyard Book, Gaiman compared the current glut of vampire characters to an infestation of cockroaches.

“The saddest thing is that it runs the risk of making vampires not scary. I like my creatures of the night a little nocturnal. My next big novel was going to have a vampire. Now, I’m probably not. They are everywhere, they’re like cockroaches.”


MySpace “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”

MySpace invites all the twi-fans to the  worldwide online trailer debut at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT and not just only that, but there will also be a live video chat with Eclipse Cullen family member Nikki Reed (Rosalie Hale), Wolf Pack girl Julia Jones (Leah Clearwater)  and bad vampire Bryce Dallas Howard (Victoria) at 8:15 PM ET/5:15PM PT.


What did you think of the Black Carpet last night? I have to admit that I wasn’t too fond of Rob in that suit, he seemed a little funny 😉 Some dresses I liked and others not too much. Although, I gotta say that the trio together made a good combination.

Miley not liking vampires in general or just the Twilight vampires? I have nothing to say there other than, too bad cause Kristen really likes the Climb. What do you think?

OK, so vampires can come out to the light more now, but they have not always feared it. They are still scary and sexy. 30 Days of Night is not that old and David showed us that vamps are still thirsty for blood, so are vampire like the Volturi, Charlaine Harris’s vampires have been around since before twilight and they were already seeking the veggie ways. Angel stopped drinking human blood, too and never stopped being sexy. I guess it’s just the way one wants to see them.What do you think of this?
