News Round-Up: 25 February 2009

Summit Entertainment has now posted the official press release for Eclipse on their website:

SUMMIT ENTERTAINMENT'S TWILIGHT SAGA'S ECLIPSE TO BE RELEASED JUNE 30, 2010

Los Angeles, CA, February 22, 2009 — Summit Entertainment announced today that ECLIPSE, the third film in the TWILIGHT saga, will be released theatrically in North America on Wednesday, June 30, 2010. Melissa Rosenberg, who wrote the scripts for both TWILIGHT and NEW MOON, is currently writing the script for ECLIPSE and continues to consult with TWILIGHT book series author Stephenie Meyer.

In ECLIPSE, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger as Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob - knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella is confronted with the most important decision of her life.

The action-packed, modern day vampire love story and blockbuster success of the first film in the series entitled TWILIGHT was released in theatres on November 21, 2008 grossing $69.6 million domestically during its first weekend. To date the film has grossed over $188 million domestically and over $362 million worldwide. The second installment of the film franchise, NEW MOON starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, will be released November 20, 2009.

Vogue Magazine is going to feature Stephenie Meyer in their March 2009 issue (with Michelle Obama on the cover).



Style.com has an edited version of the story up as a preview here. [I wish she wore THAT dress at the Twilight premiere. It's awesome on her. -CdL]

Our friends from Twilight Singapore were invited to attend the premiere of Twilight in Tokyo. The first of their reports can be found here, and boy, was that an eventful first day! Thanks to Maria, Aishah, and Nasyita. :) UPDATE: Their second report is now online! Rob is in Tokyo!

Want to know why Kristen Stewart wasn't in the Oscars but Rob was? This is what her dad had to say. [CdL is currently shaking her head and is bothered. Tsk tsk. I just LOVE Rob for being so gracious about being in the Oscars.]

PopStar interviewed Peter Facinelli, and he revealed some of the scenes that he's excited to film for New Moon. He also talked a lot about the fans and how everyone has been nice and respectful to the cast and crew. Keep it up, Twilighters! :) Click here to read the full story.

For those interested in ordering the Tonner Twilight Dolls, they are now available for pre-order via TonnerDirect at $125.99 per doll. That price does not include shipping, and there is no confirmation yet if Tonner delivers to the Philippines. [Hey, at least the dolls look better now compared to the prototype. -CdL] UPDATE: Tonner ships only to the US and Canada. If you have relatives there, just ask them to get the dolls for you. Thanks, Orange.

Twilight Lexicon has an exclusive interview with Kimbra Hickey, the model whose hands were photographed for the Twilight book cover.

The Lexicon is also reporting that Canadian actor Bronson Pelletier has been cast for a role in New Moon. This is according to his agency, Carrier Talent Management. Click here to go to his IMDB page, and here to see a photo of him and an interview he did in 2007 for the Discovery Channel show, Dinosapien. So which role do you think was Bronson cast for? Please post your answer in the Comments. :)

    On Kristen’s dad: a big uh-oh!

    Hey it is the Oscars!! This year’s critics snubbed the big box office hit (Dark Knight, which got just 2 or 3 nominations...one major for Ledger, and something about sound mixing or editing?) and went for less popular indie-ish films...

    Gotta love Rob on his decision.

    Btw, he is sitting behind Mickey Rourke (actually, beside the person sitting directly behind Rourke) during the ceremony...so during the announcement of nominations for lead actor you can see him clearly... he seemed sleepy to me or it is boredom? Hmmm....

    On Bronson's New Moon Casting:
    for someone who has 'brown skin' for a nick name... he can't be a vampire... perhaps, the ancient werewolf.... or something.. -if his nickname proves to be true...

    I have this feeling that Kristen really doesn't want to be part of Twilight... Hmmm...

    She's not like as enthusiastic as her other co-stars. It's like she's only forced to do this film. Even on her interviews, sometimes it seems like she doesn't know what she's talking about.

    Oh well. Just my opinion.

    I am really jealous for those who saw Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner at the airport. *Sigh* :(

    On why Kristen didn't go to the Oscars: That's... wow. That's just... yeah, wow. Hahaha.

    Now for that Canadian actor: I really hope he's not Seth. I'm going to be disappointed. He could be any other werewolf. Well, except Embry. I like that guy, Krys, who played him in Twilight.

    @beth - saw that too... too bad i didn't catch the part when he presented w/ the girl from mama mia! will just look for it at youtube

    on kristen - her comment is kinda disappointing... we fans are so excited about anything twilight and she's supposed to help hype it up...then she says something like that... what the???

    @mei - on the bronson kid, as soon as i saw his pic, the first character that came to my mind was seth actually. i think he fits the job... i just haven't seen him act so i dunno if he'll do a good job... but seth in new moon is a minor character... alec maybe? but he's moreno and not pale...

    sowee for the long post...
