Wednesday Wrap-Up

*Stand by, Kerry got distracted after uploading the picture to your left.*

I'm sitting here this morning, sifting through Twilight news and various blogs (check the blogrolls, so many awesome people out there) drinking my coffee. I live in Washington state, about a 4 hour drive from Forks, and it's a good drizzly vampires-are-out kind of day. Twilight is playing in the background, thanks to a request from my youngest. (You can see I've instilled the important things..) It's a good time then, to review the last week and see what we've missed.

Are you ready to Scream?

Can Twilight sweep another awards show? MTV Movie Awards, Teen Choice Awards, whenever the fans get to vote for the winners, Twilight seems to dominate. This time around it's Spike TV's Scream awards. The movie and cast are nominated for a number of categories again:

  • The Ultimate Scream – Twilight
  • Best Fantasy Film – Twilight
  • Best Fantasy Actress – Kristen Stewart, Twilight

  • Scream Song of the Year – “Decode” by Paramore, Twilight
  • Best Villain – Cam Gigandet as James
You can vote for all your favorite Twilight folks here, then watch them win on October 27 (10 days after taping...ok...) at 10pm EST on Spike.

Is it November yet?

Tickets for New Moon are already becoming available in some areas on the Fandango website. I know it's two months early, but if you and I are counting down the days, you can better the rest of the Twi-fandom is. Buy them early, get the showing you want! Who's going to the midnight showing?

Who doesn't want Rob?

Death Cab for Cutie was recently confirmed for the New Moon soundtrack. and they'll be shooting the video for "Meet Me at the Equinox". Bassist Nick Harmer spoke about their desire to have some shots of the cast in the video.

“I’m of the mind-set that the more Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner you can throw in the video, the more popular the video is going to be. Nobody wants to look at us, so we’ll probably be standing in the shadows.”

Vicious Cows

MTV spoke with Edi Gathegi recently about his final scene in the Twilight saga. You have to love Edi, he's so funny. He talks about some of the challenges in filming scenes with mostly CGI characters.

When asked whether his character’s penultimate showdown was more of a fight or a chase, Gathegi remained mostly mum, but did concede that it was hard acting with something that wasn’t there. “We basically acted with a man holding a piece of cardboard shaped like a cow. So when you see the movie, look at my eyes and [decide], is he seeing a cow or is he seeing a wolf?”

Whoa, dude..Slow your roll..

Alex Meraz (Paul) also had some funny stuff for MTV. Apparently, he really embraced his character and added some physicality to a scene with Kristen Stewart.

“[Director] Chris Weitz comes off-set like, ‘Yeah, I like the energy Alex, but just take it down a little,’ ” (Chaske) Spencer chimed in: “Meanwhile the producers are freaking out back there.”

” ‘Cause nobody touches Kristen Stewart,” joked Meraz.

More on that here.

That's MAJOR Jasper Whitlock to you...Sir.

MTV was all over the recent round of Twilight Conventions. Here's an interview with Jackson Rathbone regarding Jasper's Civil War days and his special ability.

Twitter Love for Twilight Fans

The little gems keep rolling in. Peter Facinelli, Billy Burke and David Slade have all tweeted little tidbits to keep us salivating for more from the set and cast.

Peter let Kellen Lutz tweet from his account last night.

Billy had us all running for the Brain Bleach with his comment.

David shared a bit from the set.

Billy again, it's safe..go ahead and read.

Well, Twilight is over, and my coffee cup is empty, so I'm going to wrap up our wrap up here. Never fear, there is ALWAYS more Twi-news coming.

Thanks to, and TwiCrackAddict for pics and captures.
