Wednesday Wrap-Up

Another week, another plethora of missed news. I hope you got a chance to read through yesterday's Twi-Theories article about Bella's hallucinations. I really want to hear your feedback. This is a doozy of a wrap-up, so grab your beverage of choice, get comfy, and enjoy the pretty.

Even Timbaland wants Bella and Edward

Grammy award-winning rapper and producer Timbaland says he's a fanpire, too. He wants to do a new music video featuring Bella and Edward, and wants Kristen and Rob to help make it happen. He would set this to his single "Morning After Dark" from his upcoming album Shock Value 2. Here's the video from MTV, in all Timbaland's 'just woke up' voice.

New Moon Sneak Peek: Wolf Phasing

ITunes offered an exclusive look at the scene where Bella confronts Sam and the rest of the pack. See Bella put the smackdown on Paul, and see Paul lose it. The wolves look amazing! And it looks like they darkened up Jacob-wolf some. MUCH better, in my opinion. Take a look!

Vanity Fair Checks Out the Wolfpack

Are you jealous? Vanity Fair interviewed Alex Meraz and Kiowa Gordon recently, about their experience with New Moon.

From Alex:

What was your favorite scene to shoot?

The cliff diving scene was the most fun because the whole Wolf Pack was there and we were jumping off these 50-foot scaffolding things onto an air mattress. It was pretty exciting to be able to do our own stunts.

You didn't have stunt doubles at all?

No! They were pushing for it, we were pushing against; we wanted to do our own stuff. We had to train for a good two days, eight hours each day just practicing jumping, making sure we were landing safely. On the day [of shooting], we were actually jumping from a green screen cliff but it was actually taller and a little bit more dangerous because there was foliage and grass on top of it—it was a little slippery. We were fine, and it was really fun.

From Kiowa:

Did anyone on set take you under their wing or give you any good advice?

Just the Wolf Pack. We all helped each other along and gave each other advice.

Has anyone tried to prepare for what’s coming once the film is out?

They’re trying! They keep telling me that it’s going to be a lot crazier than what I’ve seen. They keep telling me that I can’t go outside of my house. I just think it’s nonsense.

Read the rest of the interviews from Alex and Kiowa.

And The Interview Avalanche Continues

Next up, The Hollywood Reporter talks to our new favorite director, Chris Weitz.

THR: How much do you interact with the Twi-hards?

Weitz: Quite a bit. I don't have an online, direct relation with the fans; I was too busy making the movie. But I sort of feel as though every bit of footage I get out is speaking to the fans in a way. I've only addressed the fans directly twice: At the very beginning, when I said, "Don't worry, I'm going to take care of this book," and then to address an insane rumor that all the Volturi were naked in their introductory scene. But I listened to what they have to say by checking in on the Internet. I didn't do it that much while we were shooting because I didn't want to get swayed one way or another; it would be like a politician just going by the polls. But now that the footage is complete, I kind of enjoy just checking in various sites and seeing what they like.

Eclipse is Winding Down

David Slade, forever being awesome with the updates, let us know they're on the home stretch with principal photography.

Brings us that much closer to Eclipse! As if the New Moon anticipation wasn't enough!!

Give Your Lunch Some Sparkle

Be the coolest kid in the lunchroom with these New Moon lunchboxes. There's even a thermos to keep things hot or cold, whatever your preference! One has Edward on one side and Jacob on the other, with Bella on the side panels, the other has the movie poster both front and back.

Some Jackson Love

Just for those of you who can't get enough Jackson, since I know Rathbone moments are few and far between. Jackson spoke with MTV about Jasper's backstory.

"It was just really fantastic to get to delve in there and to get to don all the Civil War regalia and whatnot. That was a pleasure," he said. "I had to wear this wool suit of a major, cavalry major. "I got the big hat and everything. Hop off the horse, bow to these ladies, and then I get eaten. And then I get turned!"

Who's excited about Jackson in uniform??

Get Your DVR's Ready

This is the part I know many of us are looking forward to: The run of promotional interviews. I can't wait for blunt Kristen, lovable Taylor, and adorkable Rob to make the rounds, and I'm sure we'll see a good bit of the rest of the Wolfpack and the Cullens as well. The first that I've heard of is for Regis & Kelly. Rob, Kristen and Taylor will be making appearances on November 18, 19 and 20.

Who wants to take bets as to how many times Kelly will have her hands all over Rob?

Surf the Web with Twilight

If you use Firefox, there are Twilight themed skins available for download. I've tried a few this morning, and I'm undecided. Some of them make it very difficult to see the rest of the buttons and such, but it's still fun to have MORE Twilight all over my laptop.

Amber is Still Rocking the Vamp Writing

Don't forget to keep checking out Amber's other columns. Her series on "Real Men Read Twilight" continues on t5m. The interview with Shaun, The Military Man, will continue this week. Be sure to look for that soon!

Amber also got a helping hand from Rob and kriSten Lovers at the Scream Awards. The lucky folks were able to be on the red carpet. They weren't able to interview the cast of the Vampire Diaries for her, but they did get some great pictures and gave Amber a great account of the event. Read that here!

That's it for this week's wrap-up, stay tuned for more news and check back soon for the winners of the Necco Candy Contest!

Thanks to The Danger Magnet, TwiCrack, TwiFans, NewMoonMovie and EclipseMovie.
