Hi you guys,
As I mentioned a while back the move was planned weeks ago, yet always something happened. Well, now we’ve done it. Still this is not the domain name move I was mentioning but to a new free blog server. Sorry guys but business is low :P.
Anyway… starting on Monday 08.02.2010 we are on blogspot.com… I found it more useful and now I’ve made the move.
Step by step all the old posts will be moved there also, but for now you can read the latest 100 posts plus a few new ones.
So, the new address is http://twilight-s-news.blogspot.com/ learn it, bookmark it, share it… eh… you know what to do with it… Use it and abuse it…
Ah… there’s a poll there that I hope you’ll take a look at and maybe even vote on it… Please do so. It would mean the world to me…
Thank you guys!
A dedicated BreakingDawnMovie.org reader sent in a tip, showing that there are rumors floating around that Harry Gregson-Williams is listed as the composer for Breaking Dawn. With the Eclipse Soundtrack released today and the Eclipse Score scheduled for June 29th, this is fresh in the minds of all of us Twilight Saga fans.
The source is listed as Wikipedia, which we all know isn’t always credible. It is similar to IMDB, where users can change the information in the database.
Harry has been nominated for one Golden Globe (Best Original Score, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe, 2005), and nominated for a Grammy (Best Score Soundtrack Album For a Motion Picture,The Chronicles of Narnia; The Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe, 2005).
Harry has composed all the Shrek films, along with X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and many other titles!
What do you think — is there truth to this rumor? Or is just that .. another rumor?
“The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner” (Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series companion novella) has been hailed as a foil for the series. Though nothing has been announced to this effect, mixed reviews for the final novel in the series may prompt Meyer to launch a similar exercise to plug holes in “Breaking Dawn”.
Emerging reviews say it plainly: “The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner” tells us much we didn’t know about the original Twilight saga, particularly about the vamps. Even MTV’s Hollywood Crush picked up on how scenes written about only in the Bree Tanner book not-so-mysteriously show up in the film version of “Eclipse”. In an article published today, it says Meyer “flat out admitted” in a USA Today interview that the novella was deliberately introduced in advance to dovetail with additional scenes in the film.
It begs a good question: what will Meyer do next? She is known to have written other unused material for Twilight. Though it may do little at this point in the film series to release “Midnight Sun” (the Twilight book from Edward’s point of view), might she release another character novella that serves jointly to embellish upon “Breaking Dawn”?
Some would say she ought to. The largest opportunity for Meyer would be clarifying or enhancing elements of the “Breaking Dawn” story misunderstood or disliked by fans. Under fire in reviews of the book are plot elements such as Jacob imprinting on Edward and Bella’s daughter, Renesmee, logic around the relative effectiveness of “talented” vampires and their powers, and lack of credibility around the calling off of the final battle.
While reports on the Web say the final ‘Twilight’ installment will be two movies, the studio is staying mum.
It’s something Harry Potter has blazed the trail for, “Twilight” fans have suspected for quite some time and several of the franchise’s stars seem eager about. Now, it seems, the word may finally be official: “Breaking Dawn” will be split into two movies.
The news was reported Thursday (February 11) by Deadline Hollywood, although it should be pointed out that many news outlets have “announced” the same fact over the last few months, all apparently premature.
“No decision has been made,” a representative for Summit Entertainment told MTV News after the Deadline Hollywood story ran. “As we have said all along, we are continuing to work with Stephenie Meyer to bring ‘Breaking Dawn’ to the big screen.”
“I have this from several sources and it’s definitive,” the Web site insists. ” ‘Breaking Dawn’ is the longest in Stephenie Meyer’s four-book series lengthwise and it’s the most graphic — presenting birth, attempted murder, death and of course vampire bites. … Summit Entertainment no doubt could save money by making these ‘Twilight’ Saga movies #4 and #5 back to back and is currently looking for director or directors to helm both features.”
In the past, Meyer has expressed mild concern — but faith in the studio — over the possible two-movie idea. Back in December, the split wasseemingly reported, then became unofficial once again. Meanwhile, series stars like Anna Kendrick, Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz have weighed in with various opinions. Much of the consideration for a split seems to stem from a similar decision made on the final Harry Potter novel, which will soon debut as two films.
What does this all mean for the millions of die-hard Twi-hards who would kill for an additional “Twilight” film to be made out of Meyer’s series? Well, as we’ve often learned in the past, months of reoccurring rumors often become eventual fact. Stay tuned for more on the “Breaking Dawn” saga — including, quite possibly, official news at some point — in the weeks and months to come.
A is for Alice, the spritely, spiky-haired Cullen sister whose special vampire gift is her ability to see the future. She can tell you when to skip biology class (blood-typing day!), and let you know that your boyfriend is en route to Italy to request a decapitation (Edward Cullen in ‘New Moon’). The only thing this fashion maven is blind to is the wolves — this explains how she saw Bella’s cliff-dive, but entirely missed the part when Jacob pulls her out of the water. Alice’s mate is Jasper Hale, the blond Southerner who is constantly trying not to fall off the vegetarian vampire wagon.
B is for Bella Swan, the center of the ‘Twilight’ stories. Many humans at school try to be her friend, but she prefers the supernatural kids, not the cool kids. A true danger magnet, the clumsy and awkward Bella is constantly in mortal peril. Fortunately, her über-protective boyfriend Edward Cullen and her seriously hot (at 108.9 degrees) best friend Jacob Black have rather unnatural abilities to help keep her alive — Edward is a vampire and Jacob is a shape-shifting werewolf. Her number one desire is to become a vampire and spend eternity with Edward — but he does not want to destroy her soul. The love triangle that develops between Edward, Bella and Jacob is an angst-filled, highly dramatic, swoon-inducing romance.
C is for Coven, a group of three or more vampires that live together. The Cullen family is a coven of vampires who live amongst humans and do not harm them — they drink the blood of animals instead. The bodacious Denali coven in Alaska, whom the Cullens think of as extended family, are also vegetarian vampires. The largest and most powerful coven in the vampire world is the Volturi, who ruthlessly enforce the laws of the vampire world. Headed up by Aro, they are regarded as royalty, and have existed for over three thousand years.
D is for Death, because you cannot have a proper story about vampires without a lot of death involved. In ‘Twilight,’ James and his nomadic coven killed several humans before he set his sights on Bella; he was eventually killed by the Cullens. In ‘New Moon,’ Edward’s mistaken notion that Bella had killed herself set him off to attempt ending his life at the hands of the Volturi. The Wolf Pack dispose of Laurent, one of the vampires in James’ trio, while keeping Bella from becoming his next meal. In ‘Eclipse’ there are many human deaths, as Victoria murders innocents throughout Seattle.
E is for Edward Cullen, the beautiful, velvet-voiced, and permanently 17-year old vampire that Bella Swan is unconditionally and irrevocably in love with. This is the guy that makes human boyfriends and husbands seem inadequate. Born Edward Anthony Masen in 1901, he was changed into a vampire in 1918. In over a century, Bella’s is the only unreadable mind that Edward has come across. He eventually overcomes his desire to drink her blood, which sings to him. His love for her is so all-consuming that he makes the ultimate sacrifice, leaving her in ‘New Moon,’ so she could have a normal, human life. In ‘Eclipse’ their dramatic relationship continues, as Bella eventually becomes his fiancée.
F is for Forks, Washington, the perpetually wet and overcast small town on Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula, where ‘The Twilight Saga’ takes place. Bella leaves her mom in hot, dry Phoenix, and moves in with her dad, Charlie Swan, the Forks Chief of Police. Forks High School is where Bella first meets Edward, in the biology class where he fought every dead cell in his body to keep from draining her. He then saves her from being killed by a van in the school parking lot. The ‘Twilight’ phenomenon has put this tiny logging town on the map — Twi-tourism has increased in leaps and bounds, and the town even has its own documentary, ‘Twilight in Forks.’
G is for Gifts. While all vampires have incredible speed and strength, keen senses and immortality, some vampires have special gifts, or powers, that elevate them above the rest. Among the Cullens, Edward can read minds, Alice can see the future, and Jasper can feel and affect the emotions of others. James had the special ability of tracking, while Victoria is gifted with an uncanny sense of escape. The Volturi coven had several “gifted” members: Aro could see a person’s entire mind just by touching them, Alec could paralyze one’s senses, and Jane could project the illusion of incredible pain.
H is for Humans, the regular people in the ‘Twilight’ world who have no idea that they are surrounded by supernatural creatures. Bella’s parents, the townspeople of Forks, the staff at the high school, and Bella’s small circle of friends (Mike Newton, Jessica Stanley, Eric Yorkie, and Angela Weber) — these normal, edible humans live a carefree existence, ignorant to the dangers that lurk around every corner. Only the Quileute humans — wolf and non-wolf alike — know what’s really going on.
I is for Imprinting, an involuntary reaction from a werewolf, wherein they literally see their soul mate and become permanently bonded and committed to that person for life. One can imprint on another person, and age apparently doesn’t matter. Sam Uley imprinted on Emily, Quil on Claire, and Jacob on … well, you’ll see.
J is for Jacob Black, the Quileute boy with whom Bella once made mud pies, but who is now her best friend and hopelessly in love with her. Jacob’s werewolf gene is activated in ‘New Moon,’ and his new shape-shifter status helps him, along with the Wolf Pack, keep Bella safe from the murderous Victoria. Jacob is the one who tells Bella about “The Cold Ones,” and is the only sunshine in Bella’s dark, sad life after Edward and the Cullens leave her. In ‘Eclipse’ Jacob is livid that Bella has chosen to become a vampire, and his and Bella’s attempts to stay friends make Edward jealous, causing his protective nature to go into overdrive.
K is for K-I-S-S-I-N-G, because there is a whole lot of this in the ‘Twilight’ series. Bella is the luckiest girl in the world, seriously. She has many kissing opportunities with Edward (just has to be careful of his razor-sharp teeth), she almost kisses Jacob in ‘New Moon’ (just has to mind his bad temper or he’ll go all wolf on her), and in ‘Eclipse’ she will definitely be kissing both.
L is for La Push, baby, La Push. This is the picturesque oceanside home of the Quileute Tribe, about 14 miles west of Forks. Jacob lives here with his dad, Billy, and he and his friends often go to First Beach for bonfires and up the cliffs for some diving action. The Forks kids like to come down here for some freezing cold surfing, as Bella, Mike, Jessica and a few others did in ‘Twilight.’ It’s okay to get a paper cut here, though — the Cullens aren’t allowed.
M is for Meadow, the magical secret place where Bella and Edward go, and a significant location in the ‘Twilight’ saga. Edward takes Bella to the meadow in ‘Twilight’ — this is where she first sees his sparkling vampire qualities, as he demonstrates his strength and speed. In ‘New Moon,’ the opening scene with her “grandmother” dream takes place in this meadow. After Edward has left, she finds the meadow again and is devastated at its withered state; then Laurent appears and tries to kill her. In ‘Eclipse,’ Bella and Edward return to their special place, which Edward now calls “our meadow.” Sigh.
N is for Newborns, the army of young vampires that Victoria is building in the Seattle area during ‘Eclipse.’ After the Cullens killed James in ‘Twilight’ for his attempt on Bella’s life, his mate Victoria was out for revenge. Operating alone after Laurent’s death-by-Wolf Pack in ‘New Moon,’ Victoria decides that building an army of newborns would be the most effective way to annihilate the Cullens. Little does she know that the Cullens and the werewolves have forged a formidable and unprecedented alliance.
O is for OME (Oh My Edward), an utterance that many a Twi-hard uses regularly to express unabashed, unadulterated, undying love for their favorite emo vampire, Edward Cullen. Other than Batman (as in “Holy fill-in-the-blank, Batman”), no other fictional character has inspired an oft-used exclamation. Another Edward-inspired one is WWED (What Would Edward Do?).
P is for Proposal, when Edward officially proposes to Bella in ‘Eclipse.’ She wants their relationship to go to the next level while she is still human, but he won’t allow it, fearful that he’ll lose control and kill her. Seeing how much it means to her, old-fashioned Edward finally agrees on the condition that they marry first. He proposes with Elizabeth Masen’s ring — his human mother who died of Spanish Influenza in 1918.
Q is for Quileute Nations, the real Native American tribe that lives in La Push. In the ‘Twilight’ series Jacob, his family, and the rest of the Wolf Pack are Quileutes, whose legends say that their people descended from the wolves. It is the presence of “the Cold Ones,” vampires, that activate the wolf gene in certain Quileutes, and they attain the ability to shape-shift into giant wolf form.
R is for Robert Pattinson, the man who made Edward Cullen come alive onscreen. Catherine Hardwicke had a vision and stuck to it, casting Pattinson because he had an otherworldly beauty to him — she was definitely looking beyond the typical “high school cute boy” type. Pattinson’s fame is now at a level where screaming ensues whenever he makes a public appearance, he needs a constant bodyguard and he’s had to become a bit of a recluse. The upside to his elevated status is the opportunity to make more mature films, such as ‘Bel Ami’ and ‘Water for Elephants.’
S is for Six-Pack, because there is no room in ‘Twilight’ for vampires or werewolves with a spare tire. In ‘New Moon’ we get serious six-pack action, starting with Jacob cleaning up Bella’s bloody head with his shirt, moving on to much more shirtless scenes with Jacob and the Wolf Pack, and culminating in Edward’s big reveal of his sparkling six-pack in Italy.
T is for Tent, because Twi-hards the world over have been anxiously awaiting the famous “tent scene” from ‘Eclipse.’ Jacob, Bella and Edward are forced to share a tent on the cold mountainside — to Edward’s horror, 108.9-degree Jacob shares a sleeping bag with Bella as he is the only one who can keep her from freezing to death. This scene also involves Edward and Jacob having their first honest and open conversation, which Bella overhears. Team Jacob loves this scene because (finally!) Bella kisses Jacob and realizes she is in love with him, too. Choices, choices.
U is for Uley, as in Sam Uley. He is the head of the Wolf Pack in ‘New Moon’ and ‘Eclipse,’ having been the first of this generation of Quileutes to become a shape-shifter. He is the one who finds Bella in the woods after she gets lost trying to get to Edward when he leaves her. Jacob at first is intimidated by Sam and his strong influence on the other guys from the rez — he thinks Sam has some kind of gang. Not until Jacob becomes a werewolf, too, does he realize that Sam has been helping the boys.
V is for Victoria, the sadistic and vengeful fiery-maned vampire who wants Bella dead, as retribution for Edward and the Cullens having killed her mate James. In ‘New Moon’ she came close to Bella many times — most notably in the water after Bella dove off the cliff — but Jacob and the Wolf Pack were always able to save Bella. In ‘Eclipse’ she changes her tactics and instead of going it alone, builds an army of young vampires to attack the Cullens.
W is for Werewolves, the shape-shifting kind that some of the Quileutes have a genetic predisposition towards. Sam, Quil, Paul, Jared, Embry, Seth and Leah, along with Jacob, are the Quileutes with this gene. They are not ordinary wolves — they are enormous, bear-sized creatures with super strength and senses, as well as the ability to communicate with each other telepathically. Phasing on the run can be hard on your clothing budget — the clothes just rip to shreds.
X is for Xavier Samuel, the 26-year old Australian actor who plays Riley, the newborn vampire who serves as Victoria’s wingman, as well as the object of her phony affections. Riley is more controlled than the newborns, and is able to carry out Victoria’s tasks without the constant distraction of wanting to kill humans. He’ll be meeting up with Seth and Edward in ‘Eclipse’ for what promises to be an amazing fight.
Y is Yellow Porsche, the car Alice steals in ‘New Moon’ in order to get Bella to the clock tower in Volterra and save Edward from getting himself killed by the Volturi. Small, powerful and speedy — just like Alice. In ‘Eclipse’ Edward buys Alice an identical car as a bribe to keep an eye on Bella while he’s off hunting.
Z is for Zeal, because nothing can match the zeal of ‘Twilight’ fandom. From camping out at premieres, to set stalking, to repeated re-readings and re-watchings of the books and films, to creating fan made videos and posters — there is no end to the zealousness of Twi-fans!

What other scenes do you think need to be in the movie?
I watched them both and I found them intresting. But I’m sure that the real trailer will be better.
This one seems to focus more on events on Isle Esme
The below fan made Breaking Dawn trailer is somewhat different from the others we have been seeing. This one is based off of Jacob’s perspective during Bella’s delivery of the baby.
I love how there is a narrator reading straight from Breaking Dawn, what Jacob is thinking during this time. The only thing I do not like about the clip is that they use images of Steven Straight and Hayden Christiansen, due to the fact that when this was made there were not Taylor Lautner clips that would fit the video.
Anet Lockwood, director of the Michigan Film Office, says her staff will contact the production company to suggest the Mitten State as a potential film location. Filming is planned for this fall with a 2011 release date, according to imdb.com.”We would love to have them film here,” said Lockwood. “The film locations would become tourism sites for people who are fans of the movies and books.”
If there is any truth to the rumor floating around that Louisiana is being considered because of its generous film tax incentives, Michigan might have a shot.
Percentage-wise, Michigan’s incentives — which offer up to a 42 percent tax break — are higher than Louisiana’s 25 percent tax break. This Gulf Coast state also throws in an additional 10 percent for crew hired from the state, Lockwood said.
But Michigan caps its tax credits for salaries at $2 million, which isn’t the case in Louisiana, she said.
“Even though we give a higher percentage, (filmmakers) can make a bigger rebate in Louisiana,” Lockwood said.
There might be some terrain issues with Michigan filling in for the northern Washington town of Forks, the setting of the teenage vampire love story. Michigan’s forests lack the peaks of the northwest.
Although none of the first three films were made in Washington, they were filmed in surrounding Pacific Northwest. Twilight was made in Oregon while New Moon and the soon-to-be-released Eclipse were filmed in Vancouver, Canada.
What Michigan lacks in mountains, it makes up in sandy beaches which could be perfect for the tropical island setting where vampire Edward Cullen and his bride Bella honeymoon.
“We could play the Caribbean easily,” Lockwood said.
The only problem is filming wouldn’t begin until after summer.
Vancouver. I think they would be absolutely crazy NOT to offer some sort of incentive to get Breaking Dawn! Vancouver needs to step up, and compete to get the Saga back!
Director Bill Condon, who faces the epic task of helming the final film installment of “Twilight,” said he hasn’t even thought about bringing the wildly popular vampire series to a conclusion with “Breaking Dawn.”
“I’m not even in Twilight-land yet,” the director told PopcornBiz.
In the pilot, Keaton plays an entertainment blogger “who takes on big entrenched interests” in show business. To prepare for the part, Keaton has become a bit of blogger junkie.
“She’s doing it on her own and she’s loving it,” Condon said.
After he’s done with that, Condon will start thinking about the “Breaking Dawn” and the series’ conclusion. The thought of the seemingly daunting task before him only gets Condon pumped up. He even said he’s “excited” to shoot Bella’s extreme birth scene.
“I’m just so turned on by this book,” Condon said. “It’s everything you hope could happen in a book, plus the strangest things you could ever imagine.”
