We recently vented about the latest Eclipse trailer and its lack of sexual tension. Looks like Summit heard our cries, and released this bonerlicious still of Bella and Edward about to suck face. We’ll take it. [Photo: Summit Entertainment]
Another just-released still in the gallery below, of the hunky Cullen men planning their attack on Victoria and the newborn vamps.
It’s no secret that we, along with millions of rabid fans, love Robert Pattinson. We’ve even had the pleasure of sitting within arm’s length of the gorgeous hair-fusser at the Remember Me roundtables. Sure, we drooled and our hearts raced as he entered the room, but it wasn’t his looks (okay, solely his looks) that resonated after his wrangler dragged him from the interview. It was his shocking modesty and charm that kept our butterflies aflutter. Despite his throngs of screaming fans, the dude genuinely seemed baffled why anyone gives a sh*t.
It’s because of this personal interaction that we refuse to believe the rumors that Mr. Nice Guy himself was a diva during the re-shoots of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse last week. Apparently Rob showed up a day late and gave director David Slade ‘tude throughout the following three 16-hour days on set, making the entire atmosphere tense. We can’t imagine Rob doing much more than workin’ his mop and giggling adorably, but even if he wasn’t happy as a clam, who would be chipper under the circumstances?
These re-shoots (or “pick-up shoots” as Summit is cautiously calling them) usually don’t bode well for a film’s quality. Let’s hope Eclipse just needed more gratuitous beauty shots of RP’s pretty face, a la Remember Me, to overshadow subpar acting. We went there, Twi-hards! [Source: E!; Photo: Getty Images]
It’s official: Bill Condon will direct the final Twilight Saga movie(s?), Breaking Dawn. The guy’s got a solid resume: he directed Dreamgirls and Kinsey and is also an Oscar-winning screenwriter (he won for Gods and Monsters, was nominated for Chicago). Impressive, yes – but can he handle the vampire f*ck-fest/violent stomach-tearing vampire birth/creepy Jacob-Renesmee love affair that is Breaking Dawn? (Er, spoiler alert.)
What do you think about the latest directorial choice, Twi-hards? Did you want Summit to bring back Catherine Hardwick, Chris Weitz or David Slade instead? Will Condon click with his romantically linked stars, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson? Most importantly, will he give us the R-rated sex scenes we so desperately want to see?! (Don’t lie, you know you want to see them in all their bed-splitting glory too.)
Okay Twi-hards, let’s get to it. We just watched the new Twilight Saga: Eclipsetrailer and we gotta be honest – we have some complaints (don’t hurt us, just hear us out!). Allow us to present them to you now, in order of “BOOO!”-ness.
1. Is the make up artist trying to make Edward increasingly paler in every movie on purpose? By the time we get to Breaking Dawn he’ll be transparent, which will really suck for those of us who are holding out for those bed-breaking Brazilian love scenes.
2.Kristen Stewart‘s wig, you make K-Stew’s atrocious Joan Jett haircut look luscious. Did they make the poor girl to sleep in a hat every night to flatten that thing out even more? Why David Slade/Summit didn’t force Kristen to get extensions and dye the goth look is beyond us. Bring back Bella’s old hair!
3. WHERE IS THE KISSING? The making out? The snuggling to keep warm? The tent full of sexual tension? The Edward and Bella dry humping? This movie is for GIRLS (and er, grown women) and sure, we gals like action but we like ACTION a lot more (especially action that involves a shirtless Robert Pattinson, pleaseeeee).
Okay okay, now that our rant’s over we’re ready to gush. We’re excited to finally see some drama and danger (much improved from the motor bike snooze-fest that is New Moon), Bryce Dallas Howard looks badass as Victoria and OMG! The engagement ring!
Check out our gallery of screen-grabs from the trailer below and feel free to put us in our place in the comments. We know you can dish it and we can definitely take it.
We reported early Thursday morning on the controversy surrounding Kristen Stewart’s smoking (literally) new spread in Flaunt Magazine. We’ve finally learned what she’s dishing on in the feature, and it’s a side of Kristen Stewart we’ve never seen before.
Congratulations, science – after decades of exhaustive Tween testing and Tween experimentation with various combinations of cultural trends and animals, society has conclusively determined the Tweeniest possible combination of two things in one place…Twilight co-stars posing with sleepy koalas.
Now, In Touch, craploid magazine extraordinaire, is claiming that Rob is busy riding Blair Waldorf behind Kristen’ back. They also allege the pair is secretly sexting each other and getting dirty via text. NOT TRUE! Nothing could tear apart the greatest couple to ever roam the earth in flannels and Ray-Bans. In fact, Robsten ismore than just a couple – they are one being bonded like greasy scalp oil to the hair shaft! Stay away, Leighton Meester. Rob may not be on to you (or on you, for that matter) but we Robsten-crazed fan are.
For you non-believers, enjoy this magical Robsten retrospective detailing the couple’s best moments in 2009, the greatest year in Rob n’ Kristory, and our giant gallery of the couple. Eff Leighton!
Oprah might be the last person you’d expect to get in on the Twilight craze. But never one to be left out of pop culture fun, she’s joining right in with a special Twilight-themed episode. And she’s looking for some Twilight-obsessed fans. Sounds like it could be you!
