Whats is going on with Eclipse



It’s been seven weeks since the premiere of "The Twilight Saga: New Moon," and I’m suffering from a serious lack of new, exciting "Twilight" news. I'm getting a little purplish cast under my eyes, my face is as pale as a ... well how else can I put it? A decidedly non-sparkly vampire.

Oh sure, there have been snippets of news; all the new non-"Twilight" projects the cast members are involved in right now. Anna Kendrick’s rising star in her new flick "Up In the Air" with George Clooney; Taylor Lautner’s win for Favorite Breakout Movie Actor at the People’s Choice awards.

Kristen Stewart’s new movie "The Runaways" (based on Joan Jett’s life) coming out in March along with Robert Pattinson’s new effort in "Remember Me," also premiering in March.

All good news but … hardly a peep about the third movie in the series, "Twilight Saga: Eclipse," premiering in June 2010. So what’s a thirsty Twihard to do? I’m re-reading the book. (Yes, I know, the pages are getting a bit worn but I need to be at the top of my game.) I highly recommend it for those of you who haven’t read it in a while or haven’t read it at all. It’s going to make a great movie: Edward, Bella and Jacob continue on a gut-wrenching emotional roller-coaster ride as a result of Bella’s indecision (Boy, do I remember those days). Thus ramping up the competition between the men.

The Wolf Pack action increases, too, as the pack grows because of the threat of a thirsty newborn vampire army created by a vengeful Victoria. The non-Cullen Clan vampires come to Forks looking for Bella. And Jasper and Rosalie tell their stories of “changing,” bringing more new characters into the Saga.

A recent interview with Charlie Bewley (aka Demetri) by OK Magazine, used these words to describe Eclipse:

“'Eclipse' has this different mood about it, it’s dark and vicious. You get to see the brutal nature of vampires and what they are really capable of, which is something we haven’t really seen in the first two movies. 'Eclipse' will be more real.”
Only 25 more weeks until the premiere of "Eclipse." The good news in the meanwhile is that Showtime will air "Twilight" January 23-25 (five screenings only) with On Demand viewing starting January 15 and running until the end of April. Showtime recently had a crew in Forks, Washington, shooting footage and interviewing the locals and students of Forks High School. These short segments will be shown during the first television broadcast of "Twilight." Be sure to tune in
