Can anyone tell me why both Kristen Stewart AND Robert Pattinson insist on offending Twilight fans? Please? PRETTY PLEASE? Cuz I sure can't figure it out.
From the Summit website (which could use some major work IMO):
Actress Rachelle Lefevre Will Be Replaced By Howard In The Role Of Victoria
Los Angeles, CA July 28, 2009 — Summit Entertainment announced today that Bryce Dallas Howard will take over the role of "Victoria" in the studio's upcoming production of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE. Actress, Rachelle Lefevre, who portrayed the character in TWILIGHT as well as the upcoming release of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON, will not continue in the role due to scheduling conflicts with another commitment the actor has made. THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE will start filming in Vancouver this coming August.
THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE, the third film in the studio's TWILIGHT film franchise based on Stephenie Meyer's blockbuster book series, will be directed by David Slade from a screenplay written by Melissa Rosenberg. The film will be released theatrically in North America on Wednesday, June 30, 2010.
"We are incredibly happy that Bryce has agreed to come into the franchise," said Erik Feig, Summit's President of Worldwide Production and Acquisitions. "Rachelle brought "Victoria" to great screen life and Bryce will bring a new dimension to the character. The franchise is lucky to have such a talented actress as Bryce coming in to fill the role."
Howard most recently starred in TERMINATOR SALVATION as Kate Connor and has been seen in SPIDER-MAN 3, LADY IN THE WATER, and THE VILLAGE. She was nominated for a Golden Globe for her leading performance as an actress in the HBO film AS YOU LIKE IT.

KStew and RPattz--please watch the following video. This is how subjects of a pop culture phenomenon SHOULD act toward the press. Please take notes, as there will be a test later. (Taylor, you performed well the other day and are excused from class.)

I. Love. It. Is Alice's outfit not PERFECTION??? Exactly how I pictured them ALL. This is one of my absolute favorite scenes in the book. Having Alice show up after all that time was almost as good as finding Edward. Almost.
OK so I'm on vaca and having some internet issues so please FORGIVE me for not blogging more often. And if I miss your comments I promise I will respond when I get back!!

So what do you think? Edwardesque?
The release of "New Moon" is still roughly four months away, and if you're impatiently tapping your foot as much as we are, we might have an antidote. HitFix recently sat down with "New Moon" director Chris Weitz and got him to spill on the sequel — from soundtrack songs to the film within a film "Face Punch." Here's a brief synopsis of his remarks (POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD):
-Chris is about two weeks away from sending a director's cut of "New Moon" to the studio. He has to have a final cut of the movie ready by, fittingly enough, the day before Halloween (Oct. 30).
-Chris will debut a few new scenes this month at Comic-Con 2009 in San Diego.
-The CGI shot of the wolf from the trailer that premiered during the MTV Movie Awards has gone through 20-30 iterations since, likely to make it look more realistic.
-New potential candidates for the soundtrack include Thom Yorke and Kings of Leon.
-Chris' favorite scene to film was the sequence at Volturi headquarters.
-About the look of the Volturi's lair Chris said, "The first thing I wanted to do was put them in a setting that wasn't Dracula's castle. I feel like that's been done. There have been so many vampire movies and werewolf movies and horror movies where everything has been dark and dreary and everything is blue or green or something like that. Instead, their headquarters is surprisingly light and crisp."
-There will be a proposal scene. I repeat: There will be a proposal scene.
-Though sadly, we won't get to see "Face Punch" the movie within a movie Michael Welch told us about last month. No actual scenes were filmed for it, so movie-goers will only hear the sounds of the faux film.
- Will Chris come back "Breaking Dawn" as fans have been hoping? "I think it's really charming that having not seen 'New Moon' people would be enthusiastic about me wanting to do 'Breaking Dawn,'" he told HitFlix. "That's really -- y'know I think the proof is in the pudding and they should see it before they decide there is anything else they want me to do. But I would hope to earn that kind of rumor. We haven't really spoken with Summit about that."
What do you think about these new "New Moon" details? Do they make you even more excited to see the film come November 20?
When I can speak again, I'll definitely throw a big, ol' YES out there as my final answer.

This also reminds me to share with y0u the amusing thing that happened to me at Costco today. While perusing the book section (snort - the "book section" at Costco - see the above coffee comment for why that's funny), I saw a woman standing in front of the Twilight books. She thought quietly to herself for a moment - and then tried to appear as if she were taking a nonchalant look around - before diving headfirst into Breaking Dawn. Truly it happened so fast I thought she might break a nail. Upon realizing she was reading well into the 2nd half, I felt compelled to come to her rescue and make sure didn't read any further if she a) hadn't read the series and b) was planning on reading the series. So I said "Have you read them?" extremely quietly, as many of us over-rabid Twilighters do while we're accosting a possible new follower in public. Naturally, though, she had read them. And I was thrilled to meet yet another TwiBud in the universe. Her exact words were "Yes - I've read them all!" She then scanned the crowd before admitting, "Twice". We had a good giggle before she leaned in even closer and said "if you go to the author's website you'll see (snort - "the author" - as if I haven't been using Stephenie Meyer's name for months as if we grew up next door to each other) at which point I shot her secret offering down from sheer excitement and exclaimed "MIDNIGHT SUN!" At that point we both had the "sigh, she HAS to finish it!" conversation. And - might I say it was her lucky day as she had no idea about the 4 page blurb in the New Moon extras section....where Edward talks about being in that horrible attic in South America and gets the call from Rosalie. I guarantee you she read it upon reentering her dwelling and has alerted all her Twifriends by now.
Ahhh yes. Another day...another Twilight education of strangers. It's great to pass-on the Edward love. *Thanks to USA TODAY for the photo.

Thank you so much for bringing this New Moon hilarity to my attention. I saw a blurb about this the other day but skipped it, thinking the whole thing involved guinea pigs.
Dang. It is funny. (said remotely with no feeling like the "Bella" in the video.)
Your crazy-assed, Twilight-addicted cousin Carol
PS - Watch Edward while Bella's bleeding from the paper cut. Spot-on, Rob Pattinson "pained" look. Priceless.
SO - this post BEGS THE QUESTION: If Kstew didn't sign on to play Bella Swan in Breaking Dawn (which we all know she will, but humor me people)... WHO SHOULD REPLACE HER? And WHY AM I SCREAMING?! (The beach! The truck!!!)

He has been having a little fun with us - AT EDWARD'S EXPENSE!!! He thinks Tracey has turned to the dark side by reading Twilight. (OK clearly she was making fun of it before she read it, but I'll let that one slide as she has since made up for this blasphemous abuse.) From here on out, I plan on spending every waking moment I am at his house discussing Twilight until he runs off screaming and yelling "I love you, Edward!" It'll happen. Just wait.

You have to answer the following question. My (quite stupid) entry is below.
If you were on a road trip with either a vampire or werewolf what would your itunes playlist be and what snacks would you pack to ensure you’re not the snack?
Travel partner? Definitely vampire. And definitely Edward Cullen. And seeing as Edward is alllll about the 50s music, I'd have to fill the iPod with songs like "Don't Be Cruel"... "In the Still of the Night"... "Breathless"... and of course, "Young Blood"! And maybe "Sexy and 17" by the Straycats... because Edward digs an 80s tune once in a while, right?
As for snacks, I'd bring along my nasty neighbor's even nastier cats, Jane and Alec, just in case he got hungry. And possibly some True Blood, too. (Yeah, yeah... wrong series, but it's a long trip, right?!)
