“Twilight”-themed blood drives, in conjunction with the release of “Eclipse,” the third “Twilight” movie

Thanks to local “Twilight” fans, Redlands Community Hospital more than doubled the amount of blood collected at their monthly drive Tuesday.

The hospital hosted the first of two “Twilight”-themed blood drives this month, in conjunction with the release of “Eclipse,” the third “Twilight” movie.

The hospital holds blood drives the first Tuesday of each month and collects 40 to 60 units of blood, CEO Jim Holmes said.

By 5 p.m. Tuesday, about 100 units had been donated, according to LifeStream nurse Susan Franklin.

“The nice thing about what `Twilight’ has done (is) it introduces a new generation to the thought of giving blood,” said Holmes, who stopped by the drive at the Weisser Pavilion Tuesday afternoon.

His 15-year-old daughter is a “Twilight” fan and wanted one of the black T-shirts, which read “I didn’t need to be BITTEN to give blood.”

“Since I’m a `Twilight’ fan I thought, OK, I can actually donate, and get the shirt, which I like,” said Crystal Banza, 20, of Redlands. She usually donates at Cal State San Bernardino, where she is a student. She could not make the “New Moon” blood drive at Krikorian Premiere Theatres in November, held in conjunction with the second “Twilight” movie’s release.

Friend and fellow Cal State student Idalia Flamenco said she came because Banza did, and to get a T-shirt, which has two red pricks on the left shoulder.

“It gets more people to donate blood and gets their attention,” said Flamenco, 24, who lives in Rialto.

“Twilight” fan Gina Pi a of Fontana gave blood for the first time Tuesday.

“I think they’ll get a bigger turnout because a lot of people are into `Twilight,’ ” she said.

Redlands Community Hospital marketing manager Nikyah Pfeiffer said she expected about 200 people, the rush coming when people got out of school and work. Donors were accepted until 7 p.m.

“I think we’ve seen a lot more younger people come in,” said Pfeiffer, who had the idea for the “Twilight”-themed blood drives.

Taran Lent, 20, said using “Twilight” to promote blood donation was a good strategy.

“I think it motivates people who are into it,” said Lent, a “Twilight” fan who works in Redlands Community Hospital’s food and nutrition department.

Lent said it was her first time donating at the hospital – she usually gives at the donor center in San Bernardino.

Franklin said the greatest current need is plasma from type AB donors. She said LifeStream sent more staff to Tuesday’s event than they usually do to the hospital’s drives. Twice as many cots were set up, she said.

“It serves both needs well – it gives us more donors and promotes the movie,” she said.

“Twilight” fan Allison Jure, who was not able to give blood because of her iron level, said she was inspired to start donating.

“I can’t wait to come back and do my part,” said Jure, 32, a Redlands resident. “It really shows how much they appreciate people coming out.”

Besides a T-shirt, donors received a free movie ticket to Krikorian, where the second blood drive will be held June 30, the day “Eclipse” is released.

MTV to debut a new ‘Eclipse’ clip!

If you’re a “Twilight” fan you better not be busy this weekend! During the MTV Movie Awards, airing this Sunday night, “Twilight” stars Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, and Kristen Stewart will be on stage to debut a new, never before seen clip from “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.” No word as to what portion of the film will be debuted in this clip but I’ll put my money on some fighting! At least that’s what I’d like to see.

The fight scenes in this movie look awesome but we’ve only seen little bits and pieces. When the “New Moon” DVD declared it had an exclusive scene from “Eclipse” in it I was pumped to watch it but was disappointed with the clip they chose. The clip is a cuddly bedroom scene between Bella and Edward and honestly it’s one we’ve all imagined 5,000 times on our own. While that’s a great part of the book/movie I’d like to see something I feel like I haven’t seen already! But we can only wait and see on Sunday!

Twilight Eclipse: The Top 10 Quotes that should be in the Eclipse Script

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart star in ‘Twilight Saga: Eclipse’ and it is the most anticipated movie for June, with it’s release on June 30th selling like hotcakes on many different movie websites. Twi-hards can’t wait to see the movie and find out exactly how closely the movie follows the book, and so I decided to write down 10 quotes from the Eclipse book by Stephenie Meyer (not Stephanie) that I think should be in the movie.

1. I believe that. But I want you to know something — when it comes to all this enemies nonsense, I’m out. I am a neutral country. I am Switzerland. I refuse to be affected by territorial disputes between mythical creatures. Jacob is family. You are… well, not exactly the love of my life, because I expect to love you for much longer than that. The love of my existence. I don’t care who’s a werewolf and who’s a vampire. If Angela turns out to be a witch, she can join the party, too.  Bella Swan, page 143.

2.It’s not like love at first sight, really. It’s more like… gravity moves. When you see her, suddenly it’s not the earth holding you here anymore. She does. And nothing matters more than her. And you would do anything for her, be anything for her… You become whatever she needs you to be, whether that’s a protector, or a lover, or a friend, or a brother. Jacob Black, page 176.

3. But I’ll never see anyone else, Bella. I only see you. Even when I close my eyes and try to see something else. Ask Quil or Embry. It drives them all crazy. Jacob Black, page 177.

4. I go a little berserk when I try to leave you. I don’t think I’ll go so far again. It’s not worth it. Edward Cullen, page 189.

5. You are the only one who has ever touched my heart. It will always be yours. Edward Cullen, page 195.

6. He sang me to sleep again and — aware even in unconsciousness that he was there — I slept free of nightmares. Bella Swan, page 208.

7. The way he stared at her! It was like a blind man seeing the sun for the first time. Like a collector finding an undiscovered Da Vinci, like a mother looking into the face of her newborn child. Bella Swan, page 242.

8. Besides… the more time I spend with you, the more human emotions seem comprehensible to me. I’m discovering that I can sympathize with Heathcliff in ways I didn’t think possible before. Edward Cullen, page 265.

9. You’ll always be my Bella, you’ll just be a little more durable. Edward Cullen, page 274.

10. I’m not that girl, Edward. The one who gets married right out of high school like some small-town hick who got knocked up by her boyfriend! Bella Swan, page 275.

Fresh blood for ‘Twilight’ – Teens ask, and 3 young ‘Eclipse’ actors spill about co-stars and iPods

If you’re a girl (or a girl at heart), you probably can’t wait to see the movie “Eclipse.” And if you’re a straight guy, you probably would rather have your canine teeth removed without Novocaine than get dragged to the third installment of the dreamy, swoony, yearning, star-crossed vampire-human love story. 

But good news, men. Three junior cast members from the latest film in the “Twilight” series, out June 30, promise “Eclipse” is bursting with action between the pale, romantic vampires and their enemies, the astonishing six-packs — er, wolfpack. 

Weighing in are: 

• Jodelle Ferland, 15, who plays newbie vampire Bree Tanner. 

• Tyson Houseman, 20, who portrays shape-shifting wolfpack member Quil Ateara.

• BooBoo Stewart, 16, as Seth Clearwater, another wolfpacker. (His mom gave him the childhood nickname BooBoo, and it stuck. “People remember it,” he said.)

We asked some members of the “Twilight” target audience to come up with questions for the trio. Our panelists were eighth graders Claire, Mairead and Nicole, and sixth grader Isabelle.Q. Jodelle, tell us about Stephenie Meyer’s new book about your character, The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner, coming out Saturday.

JODELLE: I had read the book before I started filming “Eclipse” so that I could understand Bree better and what she went through before she came to what she was in Eclipse. … It’s her back story, so you’ll find out about her, but I can’t tell you much. 

Q. Is it true you had to read it under really tight security? 

JODELLE: I read it and there’s somebody watching me. It’s not that they don’t trust me, but they just want to, you know, take all the precautions they can. … After I read it, we were supposed to get rid of it, and we didn’t really know how to do that. [We] put it in a bucket. We threw a match in and we burnt it, and then we took a video and a picture and we sent it to Stephenie Meyer. It was so funny. 

Q. You’re a new addition to the franchise. How did Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and the others actors welcome you? 

JODELLE: It’s always the little things that count, like saying “hi” to me, or saying “Oh, come sit over here, you look lonely.” You know, all those little things that I really appreciated because it made me feel more welcome. … They’re all really nice people. 

Q. What’s the fan pressure like for Robert, Kristen and Taylor? 

TYSON:You get fan encounters of the craziest kind, but it’s still, they are what drives this whole series, and they are what makes “Twilight” what it is, so it’s really cool to have that at the same time. 

Q. BooBoo, what happened when you were punched at a fan event in Vancouver? 

BOOBOO: It was messed up. One, another kid on a dare decided to hit me. I wasn’t hurt but … he was held until the police came. Then I went back, and [continued] greeting the fans. 

Q. What’s really cool about “Eclipse”? 

TYSON: There’s going to be a lot more action. … There’s a very climactic fight scene. There’s an entire war at the end of the movie, and I think it’s going to be a lot more guy-friendly. 

Q. So guys will want to come with their girlfriends? 

TYSON: Definitely. … Another thing that’s really, really cool … you get a lot of really cool background stories, like with the Quileutes [the wolfpack’s Native American tribe]. And with the other vampires, too, like, you get to learn about the history, about who they are. 

Q. For “Eclipse,” Bryce Dallas Howard replaces Rachelle Lefevre as the vengeance-seeking vampire Victoria. What can you tell us about her? 

TYSON: She does a great portrayal of the character. I accidentally walked into her on set one day, and it terrified me. I walked around the corner and there she was, and she was in full make-up and everything, and I got so scared. … She was really, really intense.” 

Q. Have you read the whole Twilight series? 

JODELLE: I’ve read all four of the books, and I absolutely love them. I really, really like Stephenie’s writing. 

TYSON: I read them all after I got the part. 

BOOBOO: I thought I might get an audition for the film, so I started reading the books. … I wanted to go in extremely prepared, you know? 

Q. And what’s on your iPods right now? 

JODELLE: My favorite singer is Jason Mraz. … I went into a poster store, and they asked me what band he was in. So yeah, I wasn’t very happy about that. … Plain White T’s … Carrie Underwood. Sometimes I’m in the mood for country; sometimes more upbeat kind of music. It really depends what kind of mood I’m in. I also love Lights. I really like her music. It’s calming, just like Jason Mraz. 

TYSON: Right now I guess my favorite bands would be bands like Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. I’ve been listening to them a lot lately. Grizzly Bear, Broken Social Scene, Metric, bands like that. 

BOOBOO: The last thing I downloaded on my iPod was some Motley Crue. I listen to Rush, August Burns Red and ELO. 

Q. The wolfpack is all about the abs. How did you prepare for the film? 

TYSON: I think I gained about 20 or 25 pounds of muscle. … I’ve definitely filled into my wolf physique. … We had to go through the workouts together. It was a really great way for all of us to, you know, bond together. … If we were doing push-ups, then it was always a race to see who could do the most push-ups against each other. 

BOOBOO: My mom actually trained me. She trained me at the gym. She’s really tough. She’s a personal trainer and she’s a Pro Fitness competitor, so she kicked my butt. … I put on about 10, 15 pounds. 

Q. BooBoo, some people say you are a mini-Taylor Lautner. How do you take that? 

BOOBOO: He’s doing so well in his career, and I think it’s just awesome. 

Q. Did you bond more with the vampire actors than other members of the wolfpack, because your character is the most friendly toward them? 

BOOBOO: I spent most of my time at craft service eating M&Ms. I bonded with M&Ms.
