Eclipse director David Slade Tweeted earlier that he approves of this (hilarious) Eclipse trailer spoof! Check it out, it’s really funny. P.S. Congrats to the makers, having the director himself approve is kinda a big deal
♥Thanks for the emails about this Claire, Lynn & Mallory!
Here is the Eclipse trailer in German! It’s the same trailer we’ve all seen, but our readers come from all over the world, so I like to try to post trailers in different languages to accommodate everyone.
I always love the lists that FearNet comes out with, and today they have one outlining the ‘Ten Things To Love In The Eclipse Trailer.‘ I read through it to see if I agreed with everything, and I actually felt like the writer, Jen Yamato, read my mind (especially about the Cinematography thing). Here is an excerpt:
David Slade’s Naturalistic Cinematography It’s been clear through Slade’s on-set Tweets that the man has an eye for gorgeous photography; that sensibility is evident in the way he’s chosen to film Eclipse, with naturalistic cinematography unlike both Catherine Hardwicke’s lo-fi Twilight and Chris Weitz’s crisp and polished New Moon. The landscapes we see in the trailer, all mountains and sparkling rivers and muted light peeking through the clouds, emphasize the setting of Eclipse’s big showdown (without a single glimpse of Victoria’s new hunting ground, Seattle) with location filming that looks fantastically authentic.
First Look at the New Victoria in Action No matter how you feel about Rachelle Lefevre’s departure from the Twilight franchise, you’re just going to have to get used to Bryce Dallas Howard’s new Victoria. So it’s a good thing that the trailer introduces her in a big way, by leaping across a river in one impressive effects shot. More importantly, it also shows how Slade’s vampire action might solve the weightlessness problem of Twilight’s wire work while feeling more realistic (i.e. not too CG heavy) than that in New Moon. (Then again, we don’t know how his fight action will look just yet.)
This is an incredible list, so click here to read the other 8 reasons to love the Eclipse trailer!
