And the Winner Is...

According to RANDOM.ORG, comment #3 by Wendy is our giveaway winner:

wendy said...I think her character is very interesting in regards to most of the other ways women are portrayed in movies these days.

Wendy, I will be contacting you via email to arrange delivery of your prize. Thank you very much to everybody who took their time to "talk" to me about Bella, I hope it was as fun for you as it was for me. Keep your eyes open, we will definitely do another giveaway closer to the Eclipse release date.

As you probably noticed, we reVamped the blog's appearance, inspired by the Eclipse theme. Left side is the icy cool for Edward and the right is burning hot for Jacob. Even the big Amber Eye in the header has a little Eclipse in it's pupil ;) But I wanted to say a special thank you to our darling bloggy friend Danny aka Mrs. Vanquish, extremely talented and helpful owner of the Twispired Blogdesign, without whom we would probably still be tinkering with the stupid background.

Eclipse Quote of the Day #40

"There are no options for those who break the rules." - Jane

We have a whole new progress

How awesome is the new banner made by the wonderful RaShell? I'm totally in love with it. Unfortunately there are some issues with the gorgeous background that she made when we actually put it into use, so we're temporarily going with fade to black. I know you're all familiar with that. If we aren't able to get it work, I promise to show it to you anyway.

Can't wait to hear what you think of our new look!

" [The] co-stars that were in a heated battle with Summit Entertainment over the deal points for the fourth and fifth installment of Breaking Dawn, have signed their deals, sources say. It’s not clear which party buckled and both sides are sure to have their spin, but we can confirm that we’ll see Green back as Alice Cullen for the last two Twilight films. And hunky Lutz will also return as Emmett Cullen for the conclusion of the epic franchise. Bill Condon is directing and production is set to begin in the fall. Summit Entertainment would not confirm the deals."

We now all wait on official word as to whether 'Breaking Dawn' is set to be one or two movies!

Muse talk about new 'Eclipse' Single

Muse have talked about their new 'Eclipse' single Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever) that was released yesterday.  Matt Bellamy has explained how their song is about the recent "break-up" with his girlfriend.  He goes on to say;

"Bellamy explained that he wanted fans to hear the track now whilst its subject matter still felt "relevant". He said: "I broke up with my girlfriend - it must have been about 8 months ago or something. I basically wrote that song pretty much immediately after that.
"The Twilight people contacted us and were very keen to get a song for their film and I thought 'Why not?'.
"I might as well just bung it in there and get it out there because this song represents a bit of a difficult period for me in my life. It's the kind of song that by the time we get to the next album might not be relevant any more. My life might have changed and moved on. It's kind of like a cheesy love sentiment I suppose.
"When I wrote the song, it was quite a heavy thing."

Stephenie invites Fansites for Eclipse Junket!

Stephenie Meyer has decided to do something different for her promotion for Eclipse.  She posted the following on her website yesterday:

I want to do something different with publicity for this movie release. For Twilight, I did the normal press junket, for New Moon I got to go on Oprah. Both of these were fun, exciting experiences. However, they both had the same drawback—the interviews were designed for a very broad audience, and because of that, most of the questions were about things you guys have known the answers to for years. I feel like all of the basic questions have been answered, and for Eclipse I want to focus on the more specific questions of the readers. To accomplish that, I'm hosting my own mini-junket with a few fansites. It will be held on Friday, June 18th, the week before the L.A. premiere.

The names I drew were:
Congratulations to all of the sites - we hope you have an amazing time!  We want to know if we were in the hat too! :)


Taylor and Taylor wanted best kiss award!

The director of 'Valentines Day' (and 'Pretty Woman') Garry Marshall says that Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner were trying to get a MTV best kiss nomination for their kiss in the movie!
"Taylor [Swift] was quite good in the movie and Taylor Lautner too," he told MTV News about the kiss in the movie, which is out on DVD and Blu-Ray today. "Taylor Swift is quite competitive. I said, 'You know there's a prize for best kiss? ... So we might as well try for it.' And Taylor Lautner kind of hid at the craft-service place. He didn't want to get involved. Anyway, he went along with it. We did one in the movie, which was pretty good, but then we did a whole shot of a best kiss that was pretty good."

Taylor becomes a comic book hero!

Taylor has become the latest member of the Twilight cast to be immortalized in a Bluewater Productions FAME comic book. 

The comic tells the story of his rise to fame and how he pumped up for New Moon.   President and founder of Bluewater Productions Darren Davis said: “The Twilight series has become a pop culture phenomenon. It's transformed previously unknown actors into superstars.  “It seems that the same thing is happening with Taylor Lautner.”  He added: “We at Bluewater are happy to bring Taylor's story to his fans, and hope that his comic helps introduce these readers to the joys of graphic storytelling.”

Xavier in Teen Vogue

Teen Vogue has done a great profile on Xavier Samuel who plays new born Riley in 'Eclipse'.

"When Xavier Samuel arrived in Vancouver last summer, he didn't make it far past baggage claim before he started making headlines. With just a few offbeat Australian flicks under his belt, the sandy-haired 26-year-old had been chosen to play newborn vampire Riley, the latest heartthrob in The Twilight Saga. Almost instantaneously he was being hailed as Robert Pattinson's doppelgänger and couldn't get coffee without seeing flashbulbs.
"It was all very sudden, not just with the paparazzi but also with being cast in general," says Xavier, who's been acting since high school. "I did an audition from Sydney on tape. Then I got word that it was down to four guys—and that I was one of them." (Rumor has it he beat out Channing Tatum and Harry Potter's Tom Felton for the part.)"

New Twifecta interview with USA Today

Rob, Kristen and Taylor sat down for a very cute interview with USA Today after the Oprah show.  The interview is a great read and all three come across as relaxed and funny.  The writer describes Rob as "Dashingly disheveled..Pattinson has an infectious, high-pitched laugh that would never do for his seductive vampire lover-boy, Edward Cullen."  Taylor is described as "Buff..polished...pocket-size" and Kristen is stated to be  "a real chatterbox" surprising considering much is made by the press of her nervousness and shyness.

The three talked about 'Eclipse' and Taylor revealed that he dressed up in a CGI suit to help Kristen film a scene with Jacob the wolf:
"[Taylor] waffles over the wisdom of sharing an anecdote about the scene in which the vicious horse-sized beast sweetly nuzzles Bella and she scratches his ear. After a little coaxing, he relents.
"That day I came on set and put on this tight gray spandex suit ..."
"There is dialogue and I talk to him," Stewart explains. "I said, 'How am I going to do this without Taylor?' " So instead of the actress pretending that a massive computer-animated wolf was nearby, Lautner volunteered to be its stand-in.  "Basically, it looked like a Teletubby," he continues about his outfit. "I had this circle on the face but everything else was covered. It was weird. But, yeah, I stood there and would literally bend over ..."
"I would actually pet his head," Stewart adds.
