Summit Entertainment has just announced that while the full New Moon trailer will debut in front of Bandslam (which opens in theaters August 14), Summit will release a 10 second teaser will be airing nationwide, starting Wednesday, August 12th.
This is sooooooo exciting – can’t wait to see what they have in store for us!
I absolutely adore the person behind RobPattzNews! They’ve gone ahead and collected MANY MANY signatures from an online petition regarding Rachelle LeFevre being replaced in Eclipse. Nothing against Dallas, but my name is on that petition – simply because Rachelle is a great actress, a perfect Victoria, a good hearted person who helps charities and she IS the original Victoria and was a damn good Victoria!
Today, RobPattzNews personally delivered a stack of signatures (see photos above) from the online petition to Summit’s offices! After delivering the petition RobPattzNews tweeted the following:
I know that once contracts are signed and people have already begun rehearsals – that there’s little to no chance of this working, but at least in the end Rachelle will know how much we love her and care about her and want so badly for her to continue her role as Victoria in Eclipse.
“We at Summit Entertainment are disappointed by Rachelle Lefevre’s recent comments which attempt to make her career choices the fault of the Studio. Her decision to discuss her version of the scheduling challenges publicly has forced the Studio to set the record straight and correct the facts.
Ms. Lefevre’s representatives were advised as early as April that THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE was expected to start shooting in early August.
If Ms. Lefevre was, as she describes “passionate,” about being part of THE TWILIGHT SAGA, we feel that she and her representatives would have included us in her decision to work on another film that would conflict with the shooting schedule of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE.
It was not until July 20th that Summit was first informed of Ms. Lefevre’s commitment to BARNEY’S VERSION, a commitment we have since been advised she accepted in early June. Summit had acted in good faith that she would be available to fulfill her obligations both in terms of rehearsals and shooting availability for THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE. We feel that her choice to withhold her scheduling conflict information from us can be viewed as a lack of cooperative spirit which affected the entire production.
Furthermore Ms. Lefevre took a role in the other film that places her in Europe during the required rehearsal time, and at least ten days of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE’s principal photography. This period is essential for both rehearsal time with the cast, and for filming at key locations that are only available during the initial part of production.
Contrary to Ms. Lefevre’s statement, it is simply untrue that the Studio dismissed her over a ten day overlap. It is not about a ten day overlap, but instead about the fact that THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE is an ensemble production that has to accommodate the schedules of numerous actors while respecting the established creative vision of the filmmaker and most importantly the story.
The fact remains that Ms. Lefevre’s commitment to the other project – which she chose to withhold from Summit until the last possible moment – makes her unfortunately unavailable to perform the role of Victoria in THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE.”
Right now, my biggest concern is about how Rachelle is going to feel while promoting New Moon. This will be very awkward for her – I mean, they travel all over promoting and I think it will show that her heart is broken over this.
