Big thanks to Twilight Sweden.

INTERESTING FACT: 6 years ago on June 2, Stephanie Meyer, mother of three, had a dream about a young couple having an intriguing conversation in the meadow. The boy was trying to explain to his beloved that he is trying his best of not killing her because he loved her so much. When she woke up, she wrote down her dream and three months later, Twilight was born.

Not sure if you know but the famous hands holding an apple cover was not the first cover! There is a pink version of it (a long time ago) and it showed Bella with a bob hairstyle and her hair was black! She looked kind of goth to me. xD

Twilight Tuesday part 2 (New Moon poster)

So thoughts on the poster?

Twilight Tuesday part 1

This week I have so much news for you guys. Part one is basically from articles around the net and Part 2 will show the New Moon poster (!!!).

Robert Pattinson celebrated his 23rd birthday on 13th May while Nikki Reed celebrated her 21st birthday on 17th May.

Fan’s Tattoo of Robert Pattinson’s signature a little too far from Twilight Examiner:

Too far or completely ordinary?

Too far or completely ordinary?

A fan by the name of Stephanie posted this photograph on her Twitter account. It is of her wrist, tattooed with the signature of Robert Pattinson. While it is not unheard of, or completely extraordinary to have signatures or insignia tattooed on one’s body (I’ve seen the likes of Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon autographed into the skin of die-hard fans, and even the Earth symbol from Dan Brown’s book Angels & Demons etched into someone’s arm), but is this taking fandom of Pattinson too far, or is the decision completely ordinary?

Woman finds ‘Twilight’ sequel script in trash, from The Associated Press:

A St. Louis beauty salon owner accidentally happened upon one of the hottest Hollywood scripts — the pages from an upcoming “Twilight” sequel — in a trash bin.

Casey Ray found two scripts, one for the vampire sequel “New Moon” and one for a different movie titled “Memoirs.” She decided to return them to the studio making the films. In return, she was invited to attend the movies’ premieres, her lawyer said.

Ray recently was waiting for her fiance to finish work when she spotted two scripts in a trash container. She was outside a hotel where actors were staying during a St. Louis shoot for the upcoming George Clooney movie, “Up in the Air.”

It’s not clear how the scripts wound up in the bin.

How lucky! I am glad she was honest and returned it and not sold it on eBay or put it up online!

Recently (not sure when exactly), the New Moon/Eclipse cast including David Slade & Stephenie Meyer gathered at a Vancouver restaurant for the New Moon Wrap Party and Eclipse Kick-Off Party.

There was an all-cast New Moon Wrap Party and Eclipse Kick-Off Party happening at Blue Water. All the cast members were partying in a private room at the restaurant. David Slade was there to kick things off, Stephenie Meyer also, as well as Rachelle Lefevre (Victoria), Rob Pattinson (Edward), Kristen Stewart (Bella), Taylor Lautner (Jacob), Ashley Greene (Alice), Michael Sheen (Aro), Jamie Bower (Caius), Charlie Bewley (Demetri), Dakota Fanning (Jane), Cameron Bright (Alec) and I’m pretty sure I saw Melissa Rosenberg (screenwriter) there.

I saw a couple cast members holding thick manuscripts, including Rob, so I’m PRETTY sure they were possibly giving out Eclipse scripts (with David Slade, Stephenie and Melissa doesn’t it seem possible?). How cool is that?

Read the full article on Vancity Allie. She included some really awesome photos as well!

This is a really funny . I laughed so hard!

And how could I almost forget this.

TwiLite: A Parody by Stephen Jenner

Love between a teenage girl and a vampire can be a beautiful thing. Then again, it can get a little ugly. Just ask Stella Crow. Stella is a clumsy but otherwise ordinary girl whose life takes a radical turn the moment she meets Edweird. Though perfect on the outside, Edweird Sullen is remarkably unrefined on the inside. He also happens to be a one hundred year old vampire, trapped in the body of a teenage boy, who has yet to finish high school. Nonetheless, Stella is unconditionally smitten with him. But not everything is rosy in this gloomiest of towns. Edweird’s enemies have sworn to put a tragic end to their romance. Against all odds, the bond between Stella and Edweird is nearly strong enough for their love to survive. Most love stories between an impossibly handsome vampire and an ungainly young woman have a magical ending. This one – not so much.

Looks really funny. I will hunt for my copy on Friday.

Edit: Stephen informed me that TwiLite is only available via internet shopping which means you can only get it at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. =(

Twilight Tuesday: Eclipse movie news

I am a Twilight fan, in case some of you didn’t know. So I was thinking of having this new feature, Twilight Tuesday! I will talk about Twilight related news on Tuesdays. How about that? =)

Summit Entertainment has officially confirmed that David Slade will be directing Eclipse. Eclipse will be released on June 20th 2010 in North America.

Los Angeles, CA April 22, 2009 – Summit Entertainment announced today that David Slade has been hired to direct THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE from a screenplay written by Melissa Rosenberg. THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE, the third film in the studio’s TWILIGHT film franchise based on the Stephenie Meyer’s blockbuster book series, will be released theatrically in North America on Wednesday, June 30, 2010. The announcement was made by Erik Feig, Summit’s President of Production.

Meyer stated, “I am thrilled that David Slade will be directing ECLIPSE. He’s a visionary filmmaker who has so much to offer this franchise. From the beginning, we’ve been blessed with wonderful directorial talent for the Twilight Saga, and I’m so happy that ECLIPSE will be carrying on with that tradition.”

Feig said, “Stephenie Meyer’s ECLIPSE is a muscular, rich, vivid book and we at Summit looked long and hard for a director who could do it justice. We believe we have found that talent in David Slade, a director who has been able to create complex, visually arresting worlds. We cannot wait to see the ECLIPSE he brings to life and brings to the fans eagerly awaiting its arrival in summer of 2010.”

Filmmaker Slade came to prominence as a director for his work on 2006’s engrossing film HARD CANDY starring Academy Award® Nominated actress Ellen Page as well as directing 2007’s genre hit 30 DAYS OF NIGHT which opened to number one at the box office its first weekend of release.

In ECLIPSE, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger as Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob — knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella is confronted with the most important decision of her life.

Interesting, but I’m not a big Eclipse fan. I am looking forward to New Moon though. =P
