The folks over at Twilight Lexicon wrote up a nice piece on the best moments of the Twilight Saga from book to screen!
#10: The first cafeteria scene in Twilight:
Ok, so in the book Edward is already sitting in the cafeteria as opposed to just walking by, but let’s face it, it still works. It was our first glimpse of Edward… which changed everything. It was also our first glimpse of Rob… and a star was born. Add in Jessica’s banter and Bella’s claim of not being interested and you have a great movie moment.
#9 The wedding scene:
Again, we have a change from the wedding being inside in the books to outside in the movie. But did we mind? Nope! The dress was old fashioned, the decor was over the top amazing, and the mood was perfectly romantic.
#8. Rosalie and Jasper’s flashbacks:
Eclipse is a tough story with all the side stories going on and flashbacks, but we think both Jasper and Rosalie’s stories were done so well! From costuming to characterization, the flashbacks were an integral to the film as much as they are to the book.
#7. The newborn battle:
We’d had some build up to battles with the dance studio scene, which was great. But add in the wolves to the mix and you’ve got an amazing action sequence! Top it off with Victoria and Riley taking on Edward and a bleeding Bella and it gets even better!
#6. The tent scene:
Given that Fire and Ice is one of the most popular chapters in Eclipse, the expectation for this scene was huge. They reshot the scene to make it more tense and to get Bella and Jacob closer to each other. The final product was well worth the trouble… and even gave us a great line that wasn’t in the books.
#5. The baseball scene:
Personally, the baseball scene wasn’t that monumental for us in the books. But when we saw it on film, it was spectacular! The baseball scene is possibly the most popular scene from the first film… and a popular choice at costume competitions!
Stephenie Meyer chatted briefly with E! News Friday in New York at Project Runway‘s finale show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
When asked about the Kristen Stewart cheating scandal she commented, “That is so not my business.”
Stephenie went on to chat about the Twilight series movies coming to an end:
“I tend to get really sad when I have to [think about the final film],” she said. “So I’m sort of putting it off. I figure it’ll be a really emotional night when it comes out and we know that it’s over. That’s going to be rough.”
Stephenie also added, “I’m writing now.”
Well Stephenie, we can’t wait to see what you’re writing!

The folks over at Team-Twilight started a new series where they chat with random celebs about the Twilight Saga!
This month they’ve caught up with celeb stylist extraordinaire and TV personality Rachel Zoe!
You’ve spoken publicly about your love for Twilight. What is it about the series that you love so much? I would say that you completely lose yourself in the purest form of romance. It’s the first time in so long that you get to see such a strong love, and get so caught up in it without any of the physicality
You’ve also been outspoken about your crush on Robert Pattinson. Have you gotten to meet him yet? No, I have not met Rob. But, I have many mutual friends and have heard nothing but the loveliest things about him. I think he’s a very talented actor and would love to meet him in the future.
If you could style any of the Twilight cast, who would you pick and why? Bella and Edward — I would love to dress them as a couple because I think that’s always fun.
“Lestat and Louie feel sorry for vampires that sparkle in the sun,” said Rice, referring to her popular characters (who were portrayed by Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt in the 1994 movie). “They would never hurt immortals who choose to spend eternity going to high school over and over again in a small town —- anymore than they would hurt the physically disabled or the mentally challenged. My vampires possess gravitas. They can afford to be merciful.”
The pic posted below is a screencaption from seeing-stars.com which states that the cast of Twilight will be joining other infamous individuals and will have their hands and feet memorialized and displayed outside of Grauman’s.
At this moment, no confirmation from Summit or any representatives has been made. Also, it’s good to note that the “cast” may very well just be the Trifecta. Rob, Kristen, and Taylor are the faces, if you will, of the Twilight franchise, so don’t be surprised if it turns out to be just them.
All we can do now is wait and see. I’ll post again if/when news is released.
Imogen Poots is filming a remake of Fright Night and naturally, because the film is about vampire, she was asked some questions about Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart:
As the earlier version did, the film celebrates the vampire’s origins as a primeval predator — something sure to please fans discouraged after years of Twilight-inspired dreaminess, in which the blood-suckers are more inspired by James Dean than Bram Stoker.
Poots, though, believes there’s room for both kinds of coffin-dwellers: those who sparkle in the sunshine and those who burst into flame. “I’ve seen (the Twilight movies). I think (Kristen Stewart) and (Robert) Pattinson are awesome. I haven’t read the books, but it’s a franchise that’s really relevant to my generation. You’ve got to embrace it.”
Fright Night, she adds, goes “back to the original form of what it means to people. It’s a malleable form. You can adjust the form of the vampire to suit your type of film.
