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.

Someone’s creating an army … an army of vampires. Yes, the trailer for “Eclipse,” the third movie in the “Twilight” series, is online now! Looks like there’s more of scrumptious Taylor Lautner with his shirt off and Dakota Fanning all grown up and wearing creepy red contact lenses. It’s in theaters June 30. Are we excited?

Stephenie Meyer announced recently that she has written a novella that gives the background on Bree Tanner, a newborn vampire that joins Victoria’s army to fight the Cullens and the werewolves in Eclipse. The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella will hit bookshelves Jun. 5. Like the other Twilight Saga books, The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner has mystery, danger, and romance, but, even more importantly, it opens up the world of the newborn vampires. Keep reading »
The final “Twilight ” movie, “Breaking Dawn,” is still in the beginning stages. But Summit is considering three big-deal directors to take it on—Sofia Coppola (“Lost in Translation”), Gus Van Sant (“Milk”), and Bill Condon (“Dreamgirls”). No decision will be made until the directors have a chance to read an outline of the screenplay. It’s interesting to imagine how each of these Hollywood heavyweights would handle the vampy love and (eek!) Bella’s birthing scene. And because we can’t keep our opinions to ourselves, we just have to tell you which directors we’d shun, shug, or marry. [EW] Keep reading »

Out of all the “Twilight” stars, Robert Pattinson seems to be the one who has been sucked the furthest into the fame vortex. Mr. Edward Cullen has become a subject of obsession for tabloids and Twihards across the globe. Pattinson hysteria has reached the point where his face is on a variety of strange products and the actor is being bombarded by fans and paparazzi to the point where he got hit by a car while fleeing from them. As a counter strike to all this deep-seated infatuation, Pattinson seems to take any chance he can to say something so stupid or bizarre that it should send women running the other way. But because Pattinson is some strange aphrodisiac, the ladies won’t leave, no matter what he says. In a recent appearance on “The View,” Pattinson was asked about dating an older women. He replied, “I think Betty White is probably one of the sexiest women in America … She’s vibrant; it’s sexy. I think the more age the better.”
Great for Betty White—a bummer for those of us not carrying an AARP card. Keep on reading for some other off-kilter Rob quotes. Keep reading »
Though her hands certainly aren’t the body part that Megan Fox is best known for, those who follow The Fox know all about her toe thumbs and how relentlessly, um, unique they are. (Sorry girl, you can’t have everything!) When the club thumbs started getting as much publicity as Fox’s awesome-looking arse a few months back, those misshapen things took an ongoing hiatus from the limelight. That means everything from hiding them on magazine covers to hiring hand doubles for commercials and photo shoots. Now, ladies and gentlemen, Big Money would like to introduce you to Megan Fox’s hand double and the rest of the hand modeling heavy weights you’ve seen fondling your favorite products all over the TV. Meet the woman whose darling digits cradle that apple on the cover of Twilight after the jump. [Jezebel] Keep reading »
So this is creepy. Etsy seller Manllow has concocted the ultimate lonely “Twilight” fan’s companion — life-size body pillows that are “half man half pillow.” Edward and Jacob’s faces have been screen-printed over soft, snuggly pillow bodies for your cuddling pleasure! Unfortunately, the pillows are anatomically incorrect in their downstairs parts, like horrible Muppets. But Edward could watch you sleep, or Jacob could keep you warm and safe all night long, and the eternal war between vampires and werewolves could finally end.
At least Manllow has a healthy sense of humor, as she demonstrated when the internet exploded in response to these horrible Frankenpillow creations. She calls them: “The greatest gift of all time. 105% creepy and 5% lovable.” Yipes. Keep reading »
