Hey Twilighters! We now have a chance to watch the past Twilight films in select theatres leading up to the release of Breaking Dawn Part 1. Details from Next Movie below:
There are still more than two weeks to go before “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” arrives in theaters on November 18 and chances are you are about going out of your skull with anticipation. What in the world can you possibly do to pass the time?
Well here’s an idea: why not watch the first three “Twilight” films again — at the theater?
Yes, you read that right: Tonight at 7:30 p.m., the movie that started it all, “Twilight,” is back in select movie theaters for a special one-night-only engagement.
And that’s just the beginning, because next Tuesday, November 8, you can see “The Twilight Saga: New Moon,” followed on November 15 by “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.”
All three “Twilight” films, in the theater again, just in time for “Breaking Dawn” — and just in time to save your sanity. Now that’s what we call a great way to kill some time.
Booboo Stewart (who plays Seth Clearwater in the upcoming Breaking Dawn films) is featured in a new web exclusive with DA MAN! Check out some new pics and a new interview below:
DA MAN: Can you tell us about your favorite Twilight ‘on set’ moment with your co-stars?
Boo Boo Stewart:I guess I had a lot of fun joking around and just listening to Robert [Pattinson], he is really a funny guy.
DA MAN: What was your last day on set of Twilight like?
Boo Boo Stewart:It was exciting knowing that these films were going to be huge—and the possible opportunities because of them and sad, too—knowing we would never all be together again like this … it was over.
DA MAN: What are you looking forward to achieving in your life?
Boo Boo Stewart: Being a successful actor, being happy, feeling like I accomplished everything I wanted to do.
DA MAN: We hear you and your sister Fivel sing, can you tell us about that and what style your music is?
Boo Boo Stewart: Well, what some people don’t know is I started in music, I got my first record deal when I was 12—so music is something I am pretty passionate about. Our style is pop rock and family friendly. Fivel is the lead singer and plays piano, my older sister Maegan plays the bass and I sing and play guitar.
As Twi-Hards know, the actors, directors and assorted crew associated with “Twilight” are typically under strict orders to stay mum about most details related to the films. So although castmember Tinsel Korey — she plays wolf pack den mother Emily Young — couldn’t reveal too much about the upcoming “Eclipse” when MTV News caught up with her, she did open up about the vampire franchise’s latest director.
David Slade (“30 Days of Night”) helmed “Eclipse,” due June 30, and Korey had nothing but kind words for him.
“He’s great. He’s a really different director from Chris Weitz,” Korey told MTV News, comparing Slade to the man who led “New Moon.” “Chris Weitz is an actor’s director, where you focus on all the emotion, whereas David Slade is more technical, so there’s a distance because he’s always thinking about the fuller picture with all the fight scenes.”
Just back from the Cannes Film Festival, where she promoted her independent feature “Stained,” Korey also talked about the scene she’s most excited to see onscreen. While she hasn’t seen the finished third installment, the “wolf pack” creation story, she said, is a “beautiful moment” of storytelling.
With the 2010 MTV Movie Awards set to air June 6, we asked what she thought the chances were that “New Moon” would claim Best Movie over “Avatar” and “The Hangover.” Not surprisingly, Korey said she had no doubt her movie would take the golden popcorn — for one reason in particular.
“Because I’m in it,” she joked. “Just kidding! I prefer it over the CGI stuff. I think ‘Avatar’ was a beautiful movie but I love the love story in ‘Twilight’. ”
InStyle did a special feature to help all the Twi-Hards get to know the newest faces of Eclipse! They included new pics & quotes. Enjoy
Acting wasn’t Meraz’s first ambition: At eighteen, he left his home in Mesa, Arizona to join the circus. “Literally,” he insisted. “I was a dancer, and I wanted to train to be in Cirque de Soleil.” Things didn’t exactly go according to plan. “I moved to San Francisco, thinking that I would take the city by storm; cut to two weeks later, and I’m bagging groceries at Whole Foods.” Luckily, it wasn’t long before a chance meeting with an older actor who ultimately became his mentor led to a small role in Terrence Malick’s The New World. In Eclipse he plays Paul, a friend of Taylor Lautner’s Jacob. “On New Moon, we could hang out—go to dinner, go to the gym. But by the time we shot this movie, we had to do all this secret text messaging, and meet at abandoned restaurants. It was pretty bizarre, but I’m proud of him.”
All four of the actors reported that getting cast in a Twilight flick has already had a transformative effect on their careers: Alex Meraz recently nabbed a starring role in the new film from Kids auteur Larry Clark, and Julia Jones’s next movie is the big-budget video game adaptation Jonah Hex. “It’s a star-maker,” Spencer said of the series. “It’s definitely opened a lot of doors.”
Spencer said he’s played his share of historical American Indian characters—what he half-jokingly called “the leather and feather” parts. “What’s cool about New Moon,” he explained, “is that we’re in a contemporary setting.” Korey agreed: “I think it’s important for people to know that there is a Native American community that’s very vibrant, and very now. We’re sort of like a new Native America.”
Brooklyn-based Spencer admitted that he auditioned for “pretty much all of the [Quileute] roles” before finally being cast as pack leader Sam. “I looked in the book, and saw how big a part it was, and was like, ‘I’ll take it,’” he said. Korey’s character, Emily, is Sam’s fiancée: A Makah Indian, she’s actually not able to transition into a wolf. “She’s sort of the caretaker,” Korey noted, before adding that she doesn’t feel she missed out as a result of playing the only non-magical member of the pack. “I don’t feel any different from them. The wolf scenes are all CGI anyway!”
According to Alex Meraz, a 25-year-old who appears in the upcoming third installment of the blockbuster Twilight series, the actors who play the so-called “Wolf Pack”—a group of American Indian shape-shifters—became as close as their characters almost as soon as they arrived on set. “We really rely on each other for support,” he said. “It feels like family.” His co-stars Tinsel Korey, 30, Chaske Spencer, 35, and Julia Jones, 29, agreed: “I felt, kind of instantly, like we had so much in common,” Jones said. Being in an intensely-hyped Twilight flick, she explained, “is a really specific kind of experience. We all feel we’re in the same boat.” (From Left: Meraz, Korey, Spencer, and Jones.)
The Eclipse casting directors weren’t the first to think Jones, a part-time model and Columbia graduate, was perfect for the part of Leah, the only female wolf. “One of my closest friends read the books before the first movie came out,” she reported, “and she always said, ‘This is going to be you. This is your role.’” Nevertheless, Jones admits to some trepidation about taking on Twilight. “Everybody has an idea of who the character is in their mind, and there’s no way I’m going to be that person for everyone,” she explained. “I just have to hope that the way I bring Leah to life wins people over.”
You didn’t think we were going to have a vampire-less 2010 MTV Movie Awards, did you? That there’d be no werewolf sniffing out the Golden Popcorn? No beautiful high school girl from Forks, Washington, smiling shyly at the crowd?
Like we’d do that to you! “Twilight”-verse, prepare, because Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner will be appearing live and in-house at the Movie Awards on Sunday, June 6, to introduce an exclusive clip from “Eclipse.”
Just let that soak in for a minute, OK? Because there’s more. “Twilight” franchise co-star Chaske Spencer (Sam Uley) will be MTV International’s official red-carpet correspondent, reporting live from the scene outside the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California, where some of Hollywood’s biggest names will be stopping by to chat.
This marks the third year in a row that the Movie Awards are bringing you fresh “Twilight” footage. In 2008, the MTV News preshow brought you the first sneak peek at a scene from the original vampire flick. The next year, we premiered an exclusive expanded trailer for “New Moon.” And come June 6, Pattinson, Stewart and Lautner will be bringing you a never-before-seen clip from “Eclipse,” which hits theaters on June 30.
It’ll be a big evening for the “Twilight” kids. “New Moon” is up for five nominations: Best Movie, Best Female Performance (Stewart), Best Male Performance (Pattinson and Lautner), Best Kiss (Stewart and Pattinson) and Global Superstar (Stewart, Pattinson and Lautner). Fan voting in all of these categories is now under way at MovieAwards.MTV.com and will stay open through Saturday, June 5. But voting for Best Movie will stay open throughout the awards show itself, which means you’ll have a chance to affect the night’s biggest prize until the very last minute.
