'Eclipse' DVD Pre-Order Sales Rocket Online


Twi-thirsty fans around the world are rushing to get their fangs into the latest Twilight Saga DVD 'Eclipse' as pre-order sales rocket online. Hailed by critics as the best Twilight episode ever, this cult film has already sold hundreds of thousands of copies online, almost two months before its release date.  With the next Twilight release 'Breaking Dawn: Part 1' almost a year away, hungry fans are digging into their last slice of the action before the long wait.

Based on the novel by Stephanie Meyer, 'Twilight Saga: Eclipse' is the third episode in this hit series of teenage vampire romance films, which has smashed box office records and produced a following of die-hard fans across the world.  Brought to life by British director David Slade, this amazing adventure captures the intense passion of the novels with breathtaking scenery, sensitive storylines and beautiful music by artists like Howard Shore (Lord of the Rings) and Muse.

Eclipse brings back the series' favourite heroine, Bella (Kristen Stewart), an ordinary high school student forced to choose between the two men who love her – Edward (Robert Pattinson), a vampire who she loves and her best friend Jacob (Taylor Lautner), a werewolf.  However, when a vengeful vampire puts Bella's life in danger, the two rivals in love and in race are forced to put aside their differences for an epic battle to save the woman they love. In this hair-raising episode, we see the vampire and werewolf leaders unite their armies for the greater good in a roller-coaster story of suspense and sacrifice.

This brilliant film combines everyday human reality with creative fantasy in a magical mix which has captured hearts worldwide.  A fantastic film for any vampire fan out there - If you missed the Twilight convention, Eclipse DVD is a great second best.



Jake Scott mentions what it was like directing Kristen in 'Welcome to the Rileys'


Welcome to the Rileys director Jake Scott when asked at a recent screening of the flick what it was like working with his leading lady:

"She's very vulpine—very wolfish—and wily, kind of twitchy. Directing her is kind of like wrangling a herd of cats. [Kristen]'s been playing this same character in—what?—two or three movies now, and that frustrates her," Scott dished on Twilight.

"She wants to be taken seriously as an actress—and the crazy thing is, before Twilight, she was doing that kind of work...She's very proud of her work in this movie."

Scott said he thought, "Oh my god, who is this kid?" when he saw Into the Wild. As he left the movie theater, he called Kristen's people and had an appointment set for the next day. "Kristen, more than anyone, would go off-script or off-course, but it would be brilliant and it would work. But it would throw [Rileys costars] Jim [Gandolfini] and Melissa [Leo]."

Scott explained that the veteran actors would make adjustments during the scene for Kristen, because they "respected her so," and they were totally into the fact that it "kept them on their toes."

"Also, that was her character. She was unpredictable...an uncontrollable force," Scott explained.


New 'Welcome to the Rileys' Clip

NSFW Clip From Welcome to the Rileys

In advance of the limited release of Welcome to the Rileys on October 29, Samuel Goldwyn Films has granted Vulture this exclusive clip from the film, and it's a doozy. The Sundance drama stars Kristen Stewart as a wayward stripper and James Gandolfini as the stranger who takes an unexpected, paternal interest in her. In this clip, Gandolfini tries good-naturedly to clean up Stewart's vocabulary. (With the amount of NSFW word bombs Stewart casually throws out during the course of a simple conversation, Gandolfini definitely has his work cut out for him.) Enjoy ... just don't watch in front of any young, impressionable Twi-hards!

SCAN of Andrew Garfield's recent quotes on Robert Pattinson

As quoted in the article:

Spidey pyjamas as a kid, then? “Oh yeah, all the way.” Garfield seems unfazed by taking on a cultural icon.He says he understands the pressures as the character is “everyone’s and no one’s”, but knows that giving in to that pressure would do the role a disservice. However, with the new films rumoured to be ‘younger’ and aimed at the Twilight audience, there’s the added challenge of going up against Robert Pattinson in the tweeny heartthrob stakes. “I don’t see it that way,” he says with an understanding smile. “I know why you ask that question. Rob’s a friend of mine and I care about him a lot. We’re very supportive of each other.”

 Andrew you're so sweet, we're certain Rob feels the same way!
