Robert Pattinson may be busy filming Water For Elephants, but the rest of the Twilight-eers have already begun the press deluge for Eclipse (only 29 days away!!!!). Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart were in Australia this weekend, shaking hands and answering questions for fans down under. Meanwhile, Tyson Houseman, one of the new werewolves in the film, told the Sun-Times the answer to our big question: can a dude watch it without clawing his eyes out? “There’s going to be a lot more action,” he promised. “There’s a very climactic fight scene. There’s an entire war at the end of the movie, and I think it’s going to be a lot more guy-friendly.” Frankly, it would have been hard to make a more painful date movie for (straight) dudes than the two-plus hours of Bella missing Edward while Jacob stands shirtless that was New Moon.
Along with action, Houseman promises an opportunity to nerd out. “Another thing that’s really, really cool…you get a lot of really cool background stories, like with the Quileutes. And with the other vampires, too, like, you get to learn about the history, about who they are.” More action and more backstory? Don’t worry, Twi-hards, we’re sure they included plenty of staring time in the forest for you, too.
