” opens in theaters—and on iMax screens!—on June 30th. It’s more than a month away, but tickets for many theaters are already on sale. We are in full-throttle “Eclipse” mania here after the cast’s baby rumor-inspiring

Clearly, the new moms in 2009 are on “Team Jacob.” For the 11th year in a row, the name topped the list of most popular boy names, while Isabella — the full name of Bella Swan, Twilight‘s heroine — pushed Emma out of the top slot for girl names. No word on where Edward falls on the list, but I swear, if “Renesmee” cracks the 2010 top 10, my head will explode. SPOILER ALERT: “Renesmee” is the name of Bella and Edward’s baby in the final installment of the series. The name is a horrifically stupid mash-up of “Esme” (Edward’s “mom”) and “Renee” (Bella’s mom). [CNN] Keep reading »
To any true “Twihard,” getting to see “Eclipse” months before opening night is far better than getting a shiny new car. So, naturally, Oprah decided to treat a very lucky studio audience—who also got to watch her interview Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Dakota Fanning, and Taylor Lautner—to a special advance screening of the movie which doesn’t open until June 30. (Her show with the film’s stars airs May 13.)
Naturally, the audience had to sign oodles of disclosure forms swearing they would not reveal the plot. But many have taken to Twitter to give their thoughts on the flick. Keep reading »
“Greetings Twihards, Twifans, Twilight Moms, Team Edward, Team Jacob, and Team Switzerland,
I’m stoked to be getting underway on the adventure of making ‘Breaking Dawn.’ I’m pretty busy bringing myself up to speed on what you already know by heart: I’ve read ‘Breaking Dawn’ twice, rewatched Catherine’s and Chris’s movies 2-3 times each, have all four CDs playing in my car, and have Catherine’s notebook, Mark Cotta Vaz’s companion books, and even Volume 1 of the graphic novel here on my desk—a corner of my office is starting to look like Hot Topic … A guy’s gotta start somewhere … Please feel free to ask questions in the comments section below, and I’ll do my best to answer them. P.S. Answer #1: No, there won’t be any musical numbers.”

As a matter of fact, there is something tackier than wearing a Disney Princess wedding gown: a “Twilight” engagement ring.
Author Stephenie Meyer has teamed up with Infinite Jewelry Co. to co-design a trinket based on the engagement ring that vampire Edward Cullen gives Bella Swan in the latest “Eclipse” movie. The rings are available in 14K yellow or white gold with an oval face set with 13 glittery gems. Middle school girls can get the $35 knockoff ring and we big girls can have the real diamond version — called “Bella’s Genuine Engagement Ring” — for a cool $1,979.
