Twilight’s News Is Moving…

wordpres to blog

Hi you guys,

WordPress’ “Twilight’s News” becomes Blogspot’s “Twilight’s News”


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!

Best wishes,

Jodelle Ferland On Her Eclipse Role: ‘There Was No Way I Was Going To Say No’

jodelle070610

Jodelle Ferland is creating buzz as Bree Tanner in Eclipse, you know, the #1 movie in the country that we’ve all seen at least twice now. We caught up with the 15-year-old, who confessed she’s on Team Edward “most of the time,” on the phone last month and discovered that not only did she read all the Twilight books back-to-back, but she signed on for the role of Bree without even reading the script! We also asked her about her plans for the Eclipse premiere black carpet.

“Oh yeah, I have a dress ready,” she told us before the premiere. “And I’m very excited for it. I always like to have a dress in my closet that I can just pull out in case of an emergency. I bought a dress a while ago and I’m pretty sure I don’t have anything else I’ll need a fancy dress for before the premiere so that could be what I’m wearing. It’s a pretty light color.”

Not sure if the dress in the photo above is the light-colored dress she was talking about, it’s light underneath the black lace, or if she switched dresses at the last minute. Keep reading for more of our Q&A with Jodelle and let us know what you thought of her Eclipse performance in the comments. Too bad she got killed in the movie, but maybe Summit will make a movie of The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner (someone start an online petition).

Jodelle Ferland – Eclipse – Interview

Jodelle Ferland is the young actress playing Bree Tanner inTwilight:  Eclipse.  She’s got a resume a mile long already, even though she’s not even sixteen, and it includes working with heavyweights like Terry Gilliam and Jeff Bridges and on movies like Silent Hill and The Messengers , which pretty much everyone who likes horror movies saw when they came out.

I recently had the pleasure of catching up with her on the set of her latest project, the upcoming indie flick Mighty Fine, and everyone there had nothing but wonderful things to say about her.  Director Debbie Goodstein gushed that she “is great in every shot.  Every shot,”  and predicted that after the debut of the third Twilight Saga installment she’ll be well on her way to stardom.  With her unique but undeniably beautiful look and a self-possession uncommon in girls her age, Jodelle does seem to have all the right equipment for it.  I talked to her about how she got her part, how she liked the latest Stephenie Meyer book about her own character, The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner, who’s her favorite Cullen, and much more.  Be sure to keep your eyes out for her in the movie, and in the meantime enjoy the BSC exclusive interview below!

MovieFone The ‘Twilight’ Saga: A to Z

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!

Eclipse’ featurette: Introducing Bree Tanner

DREAM MAGAZINE JUNE COVER GIRL: JODELLE FERLAND

1. You have been acting since you were a little girl, what was the first project you remember filming?

“I’m not exactly sure. I remember little bits of different projects I did when I was really young, but the first one that comes to mind would be a Pedialyte commercial I did when I was about 3 years old. I only had one line, it was, “More Pedialyte, please!” and I held out a little cup with a big smile on my face. I remember that one really distinctly for some reason…I guess I must’ve had fun on set.”

2. What has been your favorite project so far?

That’s a really tough one! Most people would assume my favorite is ECLIPSE, but I’m not sure if that’s what I’d pick, actually. I did a TV movie called CELINE a few years ago, where I played a young Celine Dion. It was really fun, and I had such a great time filming. I didn’t actually get to sing in it, but that’s still one of my favorites so far.

3. How were you inspired to become an actress?

Well, since I started acting when I was 2 years old, I wasn’t really “inspired”. My brother and sister used to do acting, and honestly, I don’t even remember, but apparently I found it very interesting! My mom took me to the agency and I started out with commercials…and now here I am today.

4. What has been a type of character you haven’t gotten to play yet, that you hope to?

Hmm…I’ve already done so many! Dead girl, check. Vampire, check. Evil clone, check. Princess/Queen, check. Normal girl, check (that’s not much fun though). I don’t think I’ve ever done a crazy girl. It might be fun to mix it up a little, right?

5. Who has been your favorite person to work with?

Probably Renee Zellweger, though I don’t like picking favorites. I did CASE 39 with her. She’s one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. Most of our scenes in the movie were with each other, and I really enjoyed spending time with her. She’s such a generous person. We really got along well, and I’d love to have the opportunity to work with her again.

6. With all the hype about Eclipse, do you think new doors will be open for you in the acting world?

I don’t think it’s possible for somebody to be in a movie as big as ECLIPSE and not have their career change. There are definitely more doors opening for me. TWILIGHT is a name that pretty much the whole world recognizes, and it’s basically the best possible thing to have on the top of my resume. Not that I didn’t have anything good on it before, but something about THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE  just looks impressive.

7. What was it like working with
Kristen Stewart, Dakota Fanning and Robert Pattinson?

Amazing! It was so much fun. You never know whether celebrities are going to be really nice or complete snobs (but most of them are nice) so it’s always reassuring to know that they haven’t let their fame get to their heads. I was a little nervous meeting them, but once I got to know everybody, that wore off, and I didn’t really think of them as celebrities anymore. I really enjoyed being able to meet and spend time with the whole ECLIPSE cast. I’ve actually worked with Kristen before, on THE MESSENGERS, but that was before the whole Twilight/Bella thing happened. It was great to work with her again. It’s too bad I’m not in BREAKING DAWN! But I’m not complaining. The fact that I got to be in ECLIPSE is amazing.

8. Have you read the TWILIGHT SAGA books before you found out about ECLIPSE?

I think I was just finishing the BREAKING DAWN book when I got called for the Bree audition. I loved the series, it was absolutely fantastic. I’m a total bookworm, and I just can’t put a book down once I start reading it. Especially a good book. So I didn’t get much sleep while I was reading the TWILIGHT series. I can honestly read until 5 o’clock in the morning if I’m really into the book. Probably later, if I wasn’t afraid that I’d fall asleep while eating breakfast.

9. Aside from ECLIPSE, do you have any other projects coming soon that we should look out for?

I’m going to be really busy this year…I’ll be doing quite a lot of traveling for ECLIPSE publicity. Basically all year long. In between that, I’m filming a movie called MIGHTY FINE with Chazz Palminteri, as well as a short film called MONSTER and a TV movie called ICE QUAKE.

10. If you weren’t an actress, what would you want to do?

I don’t know exactly. I’m into entertainment and art. Since I’m already in the entertainment business, I guess I’d be an artist. I really enjoy painting, drawing and pretty much anything else that involves creativity.
