As you know the 'Eclipse' dvd is released on December 4th. When 'New Moon' was released on DVD we were overwhelmed with buying options with multiple versions in different stores and with each store featuring many 'extras'. This time the buying options are a little simpler but which version is the best value? We found this great article on which version to buy Twilog.net Via Twilightblog.net. Check out the guide below!

Catherine Hardwicke's new movie trailer is released!

The trailer for Catherine's new movie 'Red Riding Hood', a re working of the classic fairy tale, has been released. Check out the trailer below! Some fun facts - 'Red Riding Hood' stars Shiloh Fernandez who originally tested for Catherine for the role of Edward Cullen. Catherine didn't think that Shiloh had the same level of intense chemistry with Kristen as Rob had and the rest is history. The movie is produced by Leonardo DiCaprio's production company and Billy Burke (who we all know and love as papa Charlie Swan) also stars!

Peter reveals what 'Nurse Jackie' has in store for Dr. Coop

Peter Facinelli has revealed that his Dr. Coop character will go through some tough times this season;

"This year, Coop goes through quite a depression," he says. "Which is sad for him. I feel bad. Some tragic things happen in his life, but Coop's [normally] so happy-go-lucky. I hate seeing him in such a slump, but hopefully he'll pull out of it. I'm shooting episode eight so I'm waiting for him to pull out of this funk."

If you haven't checked out 'Nurse Jackie' you should! You can watch it on Showtime - Peter is excellent in the show!

'Welcome to the Rileys' distribution and box office update!

Welcome to the Riley's' is on it's nearly fourth week of release and so far it's box office is at $100,881. The movie's producer Giovanni Agnelli tweeted today;

"If you contact your local art house / indie theater and they express interest in showing Welcome to the Rileys, I will try to get it there"
"The distributor wants to get the movie out as much as possible. Its a VERY crowded time of year for movies, its up to the theaters now"
"Contact the owner/manager of your local theaters. Distributor may not know some of the smaller theaters in your town."
"Studio is still expanding WTTR. I want fans to have a voice where it shows too. Check w/your local theater, if they want it, let me know"
"WTTR scheduled to open in: Washington DC, Nashville TN, Plano TX, Dallas TX, Rochester NY, Chigago IL, San Francisco CA, Philadelphia PA, Kansas City, Miami Beach Winter Park and Sarasota FL, San Diego CA"

Bid for a 'Breaking Dawn' set visit!

Charity Buzz has teamed up with the GO Campaign for an opportunity to win a visit to the set of "Breaking Dawn" in Vancouver!  The auction, which closes bidding on December 8, allows one winner to select three friends to travel with them to Vancouver to visit the set of "Breaking Dawn." Winners will spend two nights in a deluxe executive suite at the elite Four Season Hotel in Vancouver, complete with VIP limo service to and from the "Breaking Dawn" set. As part of the day on the set, winners have the chance to spend time with the film's cast! Obviously this opportunity will cost a pretty penny and bidding is currently listed at $30,000 dollars (!!). But the money is going to a great cause as proceeds from the auction are donated to the GO Campaign's efforts to improve the lives of orphans and vulnerable children throughout the world.

Ashley profiled in Gotham Magazine!

Ashley (who seems to be everywhere lately!) has just been profiled in 'Gotham' magazine.  In the profile she talks about working with Jennifer Garner in 'Butter' and how grateful she has been for the Twilight opportunity;
"“It was the first comedy I’ve ever done, so I was equally terrified and excited,” says Greene. “Plus I was working with Jennifer Garner, who I could just sit and watch all day long.”....
“Right now my fans seem to be growing with me. I want my fans to know that Twilight has given me an incredible opportunity, but this is all still new and exciting"

New Michael Welch interview!

Team Twilight had the honor of interviewing Michael Welch, who we all know as hapless Michael Newton, about his new movie 'Unrequited' and his role in the upcoming 'Breaking Dawn' filming. Some highlights of the interview include;
"Have you read the [Breaking Dawn] script?
No.
But you’re signed on?
Yes, I will be in Breaking Dawn.
Do you think it’s possible for Mike to get any closure?
It just depends on how you look at it. I’m thinking back to my lost first love from high school into my young adult life. I don’t recall getting closure, you just sort of move on. Rejection sucks and it certainly can’t be easy for Mike to watch this woman he loves committing herself to another man. Well, another “man” as far as he knows. But at the same time, I’m sure there’s also a layer of him feeling happy for Bella. It’s pretty clear how much Bella loves Edward. So I think there’s an element of someone that you care about being happy, so there might be some closure there.
Do you think you’ll get more screen time than you did in Eclipse? You were in Eclipse for about 5 seconds. That was disappointing.
Yes, in Eclipse I had my little cafeteria scene and then I had the graduation with that stupid look on my face sitting behind Bella and Edward in soft focus. I’ll probably get at least as much screen time in Breaking Dawn. New Moon is my peak in the franchise, which is strange when you think about it.
The theater scene is a great scene, though, when you get sick. It’s excellent. Very enjoyable to watch. I feel sorry for Mike at the time.
I’m very proud of that sequence. That’s my mark on the Twilight franchise, that little 3 ½ minutes and the cafeteria.
I’d like to see you and your other human friends have a little more time, but knowing the story…
Yeah, there’s not a lot of opportunity for additional scenes in a book that’s close to a thousand pages, they’re not looking to add scenes. They’re looking to cut out whatever they can."

No Bella's wedding gown for Zac Posen

Last week I posted an article about Bella's wedding gown and the rumors surrounding who will design it and what it will look like. (Read the article HERE). One of the names heavily rumored at the time was Zac Posen, but he put that rumor to rest this weekend when he tweeted;

A pretty unequivocal denial you would agree and we won't mention the fact Carrie Bradshaw (a fictional person) wears Zac Posen in Sex and The City movies... So the mystery continues and the story goes on - this is a big deal job, this tweet even made it to the NY Mag Fashion pages! I can't wait to see who the designer turns out to be!

Sam Bradley is on tour!

Sam Bradley longtime friend of Rob and who co wrote 'Never Think' from the 'Twilight' soundtrack is currently on tour and I had the pleasure of seeing him live last week! Sam is supporting Brooke Fraser and is touring in support of his new EP 'Zuni' which you can buy HERE.

I have attached some photos of the show to this post. It was my first time ever seeing Sam live and he seriously impressed me, he is so wonderful live. He performed with just his voice, a guitar and the back up of another guitar and man is his voice strong. I was dissapointed his set was so short but he managed to pack a lot into his short stage time. I can't recall the full set list but below are some youtube versions of the songs I remember him doing. If you do get a chance to see Sam in concert I strongly recommend you go.
