'Breaking Dawn' Birthing Scene May Occur Offscreen, Screenwriter Says

'Twilight' scribe Melissa Rosenberg says she'll leave those decisions up to director Bill Condon.



Now that it's been confirmed that "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" is being split into two flicks, fans want even more details on how screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg will adapt the Stephenie Meyer novel, which includes a lot of sex and an incredibly gory birthing scene, into two PG-13 films. Well, there's a good chance the graphic images of Bella in labor won't be shown at all, Rosenberg says.

"On the fan site, on Facebook, all the comments are, 'It has to be R rated! You have to show the childbirth! Gore and guts and sex!' For me it's actually more interesting to not see it," Rosenberg recently told the Los Angeles Times. "You know, you can do childbirth without seeing childbirth. ... It doesn't mean it's any less evocative of an experience."

When MTV News caught up with Rosenberg to talk about "Eclipse," she said she was going to leave a lot of those hard decisions, like how to show Bella giving birth to vampire spawn Renesmee, to director Bill Condon. "From a screenwriter standpoint that's gonna land more squarely in the director's hands," she teased. "That's one of those things [where] I kind of say [and] make a few sort of general suggestions on the page and say, 'Go! Go, Bill! Do it!' "

Franchise star Robert Pattinson told MTV News that he's glad he doesn't have to be the guy who decides how to bring the birthing scene to life. "I think that's going to be very funny," he said. "The only thing I know about it is the famous scene: the kind of cesarean scene ... I do not envy Bill Condon to have to think of some way to do that."

Facebook games Cafe World, Petville paying homage to 'Twilight'

A couple of the most popular Zynga games on Facebook have been catering to Twilight fans lately.

Both PetVille and Cafe World have added Twilight series-related goodies to their "stores," and among the many things offered are costumes, Bella's truck, a werewolf, "Petward Cullen" statues, and Vampire Staked Steak.

According to Frisky Mongoose, on PetVille, "Zynga calls this theme 'Dusk,' but trust me, they are Twilight items through and through." To add to "Petward Cullen," FM reports, "new 'Jaycub' items will be available in the game 'soon.'"

About Cafe World, AOL reports, "For those who want to collect both Twilight hunks, Edward is listed as Twinkling Vampire, is animated to sparkle, and costs 15 Cafe Cash. Jacob is the shirtless, Transforming Werewolf and costs 16 Cafe Cash." A lot of the items they have pictured look suited to the general vampire genre (as Frisky Mongoose describes it, "an iron table, coffin chairs and thrones, and includes items like a bloody door, coffin door, stained glass window, bloody portrait, werewolf and vampire paintings, castle floor tiles and wallpapers, a foggy forest wallpaper, thorny bushes, bats . . ."), but the "Twinkling Vampire" and "Transforming Werewolf" options are a dead (undead?) giveaway that these are Twilight-inspired.

Games.com speculates as to whether Twilight-inspired Zynga goodies will make their way to YoVille as well.

For those of you who play these games and happen to be Twilight fans also, sounds like a fun way to decorate the fictional properties! Those that played HABBO got the chance to do the same last year around the release of The Twilight Saga: New Moon.

Could this be Vampire Garrett?

‘Breaking Dawn’ Role for Lee Pace Not Yet Close




Eclipse is still in theaters, but rumors are already swirling about potential casting for Breaking Dawn.

On Tuesday, Lee Pace entered the discussion.

An E! Online report claims the former “Pushing Daisies” star is “thisclose” to being cast as a vampire in Breaking Dawn. Specifically, Pace would play Edward Cullen’s pal Garrett, who has “a lightness and element of humor about him.”

“Lee is the top person in the running to play Garrett,” E! quotes a source as saying.

Gossip Cop suspected it was premature to call Pace — or anyone else — “thisclose” to the role, and it looks like we were right.

A production source tells Gossip Cop no one has been cast, and a rep for Pace informs us the actor has not been approached.

So while it’s certainly possible that Pace tops a current wish list for producers, Summit, or director Bill Condon — much like Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s loose “connection” to Batman 3 — Pace’s casting shouldn’t be considered imminent.

'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse' 'Third Wife' actress details revealed



If you were at all curious who portrayed the "Third Wife" in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, it's Mariel Belanger, and a bit of new information about the actress has recently been revealed by Castanet.net.

Apparently, Belanger is a veteran of the theater as well as a poet, and she also works as a theater director.

In The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, the "Third Wife" was part of the Quileute Legends backstory told by Billy Black (portrayed by Gil Birmingham in the film).

"This is definitely a break out role for" Mariel Belanger, talent agent Julie Donnelly explained.

While the part was small in the film, it was quite significant to the storyline, since Bella (portrayed by Kristen Stewart) later replicates the heroic actions of the "Third Wife" when she and Edward (Robert Pattinson, of course) are attacked by Victoria (Bryce Dallas Howard) and Riley (Xavier Samuel).

Her counterpart in the film, "Taha Aki" was portrayed by Byron Chief-Moon, and Justin Rain also portrayed a Quileute warrior in the film.

Just another interesting tidbit on some of the film's finer details . . .

Kellan Lutz’s Vampire Advice For Kristen Stewart



Kellan Lutz is about to welcome a new addition to his family – his vampire family, that is.

The 25-year-old actor, who plays vampire Emmett Cullen in “The Twilight Saga,” spoke to Access Hollywood at Monday night’s Do Something Awards in Hollywood about his advice for the latest member of his fang-baring family — Kristen Stewart — who plays his future sister-in-law, Bella Swan, in the popular franchise.

*** SPOILER BELOW ***

For those familiar with the books, Bella joins the Cullen clan as a new vampire after she marries Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and gives birth to their child, in the last installment of the series, “Breaking Dawn” (which will be broken up into two films).

“I mean, I am all for her becoming a vampire,” Kellan explained.

“She is gonna have a lot of fun roughhousing. So yea, just embrace it.”

While Kristen anticipates her upcoming transformation, most of Kellan’s fans cannot wait to embrace him, as recent paparazzi photos have revealed the actor’s increasingly impressive physique. However, fans hungry for more Kellan can look forward to watching the actor appear sparsely clothed as the Greek god Poseidon in his upcoming film, “Immortals.”

Pattinson learns to run like hero


Robert Pattinson has revealed he had to train to run like a true action hero for new Twilight movie Eclipse.

The 24-year-old Hollywood heartthrob confessed to Reveal magazine his run in the first two Twilight films as brooding vampire Edward Cullen had been a bit weak, so he hit the treadmill.

Robert laughed: "I had to learn how to run properly. In the last two films, I ran in a limp/skip. I had to run more solidly this time so I spent a lot of time on a giant treadmill. It was like one of those things that mice run around in."

Robert also had to brush up on his fighting skills for a scene with new co-star Bryce Dallas Howard, who plays villain Victoria.

The actor admits he used a body double for the most dramatic parts, but movie bosses were still impressed with his action moves.

Robert revealed: "Weirdly, one of the producers told me: 'Wow, you look so enthusiastic in that fight scene. Much more than in any other one in the series'. It's always hard to do stuff with Bryce because she's the gentlest person and is always laughing. And she's afraid of hurting me!"

Stephenie Meyer talks about Angryward, Rob's best day on the Eclipse set and so much more

Twifans sat down with the talented Stephenie Meyer to find out about her insights and opinions on her best selling books turning into this mega money making movies.

Stephenie Meyer has had more and more say when it comes to how the movies are made from her beautifully written books. It's hard to get every scene in a 2 hour movie just as it was written in a 629 page book. Stephenie gives advice and guidance when she can. We are very excited that Stephenie will be a producer on 'Breaking Dawn 1 & 2' even though she has taken a very active role in 'Eclipse.'

Ultimately Stephenie Meyer's opinion on the movies is very important to book fans. Usually we tend to agree with the talented lady that wrote the saga. So we brought up some questions in our interview hoping to get down to the bottom of the movie discussions we have had here on twifans.

THE LOVE OF ANGRYWARD


Angryward...would we say he is a fan favorite!?! Most girl fans are loving Angryward. We think it's because he is the most unrestrained and most like a vampire. What do you think Stephenie thinks of Angryward and Edward threatening Jacob for kissing Bella? Does she agree, does she thinks he's hot?

In the books, after the first kiss and subsequent face punch; Edward threatens Jacob and he was calm, dead calm. In 'Eclipse" movie, Edward gets a little physical and unrestrained. What did Stephenie Meyer think of that?

Transcription:

Kim: Okay, we have a question about the Angry Edward, and how hot he is. When he gets angry, he pulls up, and he’s like…ya know……if you ever touch her against her will again. All the fans just love it. We all love it and everybody went crazy. The members, our members, we all wanna know about angry Edward.

Alison: Why do you think the fandom thinks Angry Edward is SO hot?

SM: Ya know it’s funny about this scene, and Meghan’s giving me the eye. That’s the one I walked out on, on the dailies because in my head that scene was so much different. In the movie Edward is quite separate motivation-ally from the book Edward. At this point in the film in the story for me he’s gotten past this. Like he’s realized “I can’t act like a teenage boy anymore. I have to give her space. I have to be the mature one here.” And in that scene in the book, he has, icy calm control. He is very gentle. He is very soft spoken. He is very mature. So when I see him….and plus ya know, the movies are unable to bring to life some of the elements in the mythology. If Edward had, in anger, grabbed Jacob by the shoulder, his arm would have come off. And the fact that Taylor is uninjured, and that he just kind of sits there…..bothered me. So I'm like…wait! If we are gonna go for it, tear his arm off. Ya know. And it’s hard for them, because blood puts you over the limit and stuff, and they would not tear off Jacob’s arm. I’m like….if we want angry Edward, I wanna see some blood. They had already filmed that day, so we couldn’t redo it but, people have responded really well to it.

Kim: That is the thing because it is different than the book.

Alison: He's as close to a vampire as we’ve seen him, because he was so restrained.

SM: And restraint is pretty much his middle name. And we don’t have the scene early in the book, where she comes back from La Push, and he’s like “are you trying to make me insane?” He really lost it. We don’t have that evolution where he goes overboard. We have a little bit, the battery disabling. Which is really over the line, and then he’s supposed to learn and he’s supposed to stop. By that point, we’re so far in, it’s like….”why is he still acting like this?” But okay, it is hot…I’ll give you that.

Kim: It turned out well considering it was a deviation from the book, and anyway……we liked it.


BELLA LEAVING WITH JACOB ON THE MOTORCYCLE

Instead of running off with Jacob when Edward was off hunting, Bella jumps on a motorcycle right in front of Edward's face. The day the clip came out, all I heard was "Bella would never do that!" or "Book Bella would have never hurt Edward like that!"

Transcription:

Alison: This is the only disruption in the force so far. The motorcycle clips. Where Bella gets on the motorcycle with Jacob. Our members wanna know, they don’t think that book Bella would have done that, would have ever hurt Edward like that.

SM: I have heard, I have read the comments, and I said the exact same thing. That was one of those days that I flew down. I'm like the way that this you know in the script I said the way that this is written her getting on the back of the bicycle is a direct response here "You lied to me, well I’m going with him” & we were able the day of, they cut down the clip that they played for MTV and stuff, we were able to soften it. We were able to get some lines in and you’ve seen the whole thing, so you know there’s a breakaway we tried to put in….her response to Edward, and then now it becomes about Jacob. “Why haven’t you called me?” We tried as hard as we could to soften, how that went down so it didn’t feel like, something “Well, I’m gonna go get on the back of his motorcycle” because I felt like that was NOT Bella at all & it's not assertive, it’s rude. You know what I mean. It’s not like….

Alison: It’s too reactionary

SM: It’s not like, “I’m a strong female character” It’s like “I’m a jerk”

Alison: We were mad at movie Bella. (Laughs) Book Bella and I were okay, but movie Bella & I were like uh.

SM: That was more or less my same reaction. I think that in the form that it exists in the film……its better now. I think it works somewhat. I still think it’s kind of a stretch that she would do that. You only have so much you can do. That was one I lost. Early in I lost that one. You do what you can do.

Alison: They’ll be happy you agree!

Robert Pattinson talks about being cheated on, the love story that inspired him and becoming a dad


What are you looking forward to about “Breaking Dawn” being shot back-to-back as two films and of Bill Condon directing them?

I’m glad that it’s Bill Condon. I love his stuff. I haven’t seen the script yet but I am fearful about the series’ end. It’s such a great security blanket. It’s like a net. You can afford to make mistakes when you have another “Twilight” film to make. After that, I guess you’re on your own.

I’m glad the “Breaking Dawn” films will be done together. Because otherwise, it’s quite hard to fit another film in-between each one. Like what happened in “Eclipse”—having to get your mind back to where it was before. I had about a week of preparation time. It was quite stressful in the beginning. With the two films done together, you can just stay in character the whole time.

In the tent scene which is already the much talked-about thing in “Eclipse,” your vampire character is of course cold, body temperature wise, while Taylor’s Jacob drives home the point that he’s literally hotter.

It’s sort of an odd scene. It’s quite difficult. It’s incredibly depressing for Edward (laughing). It does make him seem incredibly unattractive. But I never really got it in the first place. It’s like having some freezing cold person next to you (laughing). It’s horrible.

Taylor told us that you were always cracking up in that scene.

I was in a very strange room when we were shooting that scene (laughing). I kept getting obsessed with the idea of the word “thoughts” with an American accent. It sounds like “farts.” I couldn’t get over it the entire day. The opening line was, “Can you at least keep your thoughts to yourself?” I’m sitting in this tent and every single time, I laugh over that line. Taylor got to the point where he was like, “Those words don’t even sound the same. It’s not funny at all.”

I think I was tired. I find all this stuff where we have to boss each other all quite funny. Considering that we’re in teen-girl magazines and stuff … Taylor always has his shirt off. And I’ve got my little quaff (laughing). We’re trying to act all macho. I thought it was really funny.

Talk about the dynamics between the three of you now that Jacob gets to kiss Bella in this movie.

It’s weird. Not only do they do the kissing scenes—they never do it when I am even on the set. I have the day off. You genuinely feel like someone’s cheating on you. Then you come back to the set. And almost always, it’s after one of their scenes where I suspect them of doing something. It just so happened every single time—I would come into work being like, “So how was it?”

Can you set the record straight—your Edward character is a 100-year-plus-old virgin?

I think he’s … how old is he now? He must be 109 or 110. There’s an arguable point with another vampire in Alaska from the first book. It’s briefly mentioned. But I can’t remember if it’s actually fully explained if he is a virgin or not. I think the fans like to believe he is.

Since these “Twilight” films are fantasy/romance/thriller dramas, may I ask which love stories inspired you?


I have to sound really cheesy and say my parents. My parents met when my mom was 17 and my dad was 26. They’re still together. I grew up in an age where everybody gets divorced.

But in terms of film, I’ve always liked despairing, painful love stories . I think that’s probably because I’m still young. There’s a Godard film called “First Name: Carmen.” I’m not even going to attempt to say the French pronunciation. I always found that to be one of the most truthful and inspiring love stories I’ve seen on film.

How uncomfortable is it to be acting with contact lens on?

You can’t feel properly. You can’t sweat. If you do anything to sweat, everything starts breaking on your face. You can’t even psyche yourself up for a scene. I don’t know how people do scenes with contact lenses on. I just find it impossible. The Edward character is about restraint and restricting yourself about everything. He’s not a very effusive person. A lot of the performance should be done with your eyes but then you eliminate that ability by putting the contacts on. Whenever I do other movies in which I don’t have to wear contacts, I breathe a sigh of relief.

In “Breaking Dawn,” you become a father and Bella becomes a vampire bride. Do you have tips for Kristen on playing a vampire? Do you feel that you’re mature enough to play a dad?

It’s funny because I’m playing a dad in some scenes in “Breaking Dawn” and I’m portraying one in a movie I’m doing now as well. I’m terrified about doing it. I don’t know what I’m going to do when it comes to those scenes. I’ve been complaining so much about having the makeup on and contact lenses. Kristen is like, “You’re so pathetic. You have to just get over it. Why can’t you just get used to it?” [Now, since Kristen has to wear contact lens, too], I can finally be like, “You will know what it’s like. You’re going to be in constant aggravation the whole time.” Which is great.

We don’t see a lot of guys like Edward who protects a girl’s virtue. Do you relate to him at all? How old-fashioned are you?

I think I’ve become more old-fashioned. I feel like I’m already turning middle-aged now (laughing). It’s quite nice to be doing a series of films that a lot of people think uphold positive virtues. Some people actually think the films are a good influence on their kids.

Stephenie Meyer was on the set of “Eclipse” more often than she was on the first two movies. What was that like?

It’s not intimidating. She’s really nice. She really likes the films. It was strange, though. I didn’t really notice until toward the end of the filming. I was like, “Stephenie has been here every day” (laughing). It was interesting. She’s always open. She would never really come in and push anything on us. She was open to answering questions.

You have a western genre film project, “Unbound Captives,” in development. Why are you fascinated with westerns?

I grew up watching westerns. My dad’s favorite movies are all westerns. I hope that film happens. It’s such a complicated film to get together because it’s not really an action film or anything. It’s a slightly depressing romantic drama, half of which is in Comanche. It will definitely be different. My character is a massive stretch for me.

You play the guitar. How important is music for you?

It’s really important. Incidentally, my sister is a singer and a songwriter. Acting has helped as well because I’ve never really had any particular interest. The only reason I’d start releasing records is hopefully so I get a name in music and have good people who would want to collaborate with me. I guess having a name in acting, you can get your foot through the door with quite a few musicians. I hope I’ll be able to record some stuff just for myself. The idea of selling it—as soon as you start making it—it dies in a lot of ways. It’s too scary at that point. Then everyone feels the need to judge it. But if you’re not making money and you’re doing it for yourself, then no one’s going to judge it.

“Twilight” is very popular with young people, including Jaden Smith. What kind of books and music did you like when you were a teenager?

I was obsessed with a writer called Martin Amis when I was a teenager. I read everything. Every single time I went to a bookshop, I’d see if he has other books. I used to buy multiple editions of his books.

Martin, Van Morrison and Jimi Hendrix—they were my people when I was growing up. I’d obsessively collect all their stuff.

That’s funny about how Jaden likes the “Twilight” thing. He’s like the first guy who’s willing to admit it (laughing).

What has so far been a life-changing experience for you?

My moving to secondary school. I was kicked out of my first school. There is a whole system of the schools in London where I went from one school to another and then to university. Everybody went to the same schools. But I got kicked out. I ended up going to an arts school which was probably the best thing that ever happened to me.

Why were you kicked out?

Secret (laughing).

New Interview — Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner & Peter Facinelli Talk Breaking Dawn!

This is a great interview where Rob, Kristen, Taylor and Peter talks about all things Breaking Dawn like Edward's hair, Bella's wedding dress, Taylor filming shirtless and so much more!

With the release of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse looming large on the horizon, the cast and crew of the film have spoken frequently with the press in recent weeks about the challenges of returning to Stephenie Meyer's source material to breathe more life into the author's now-iconic characters. But as excited as fans are for the new film, they're almost equally eager to see what's in store in the future – specifically, how the cast and filmmakers will successfully adapt Breaking Dawn, the supposedly batsh*t fourth book in the series, into a film that can be seen by the same audiences as its predecessors.

Cinematical joined the rest of Los Angeles' entertainment press at the recent junket for Eclipse, where "the big three" – Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner – were joined by many of the film's costars and crew members. Look for an exclusive interview on the site with Eclipse director David Slade later in the week, but in the meantime, check out what the cast and crew have to say about what's in store for Breaking Dawn.


In Breaking Dawn, what do you think Edward's evolution will be?

Pattinson: I haven't read it yet! I mean, it's weird - I'm starting it a month after this job and it's something I'm quite glad I haven't read it yet. I didn't intend to not read it until now, it's quite exciting. I have no idea, I just heard brief rumors about what happens in the story but I don't really know what happens at all

Your current haircut is shorter than Edward's. How are you going to go about getting your long hair back for Breaking Dawn?

Pattinson: I'm thinking maybe Edward got a haircut - it might be easier. I didn't even think about that when I got it cut, that is a bit silly. Vampires can cut their hair though, so I like the idea of Edward having a shaved head in the last one. That [would be] pretty cool.


Since Breaking Dawn will be two movies, do you if one movie will be from your perspective and one will be from Rob's?

Lautner: I do know it will be two, which I am extremely excited about. It is going to be great. Bill Condon is doing both. I it going to be awesome and I can't wait to work with him.

Do you have a clause in your contract saying you have to keep your shirt on?

Lautner: No clause (laughs). Whatever the book says is most likely what we are going to do.

Now that you've done three of these are there things that you wish had made into the movie from the book that didn't?

Stewart: Yeah, totally - there are a million things. I mean every single time we watch one of the movies, especially when the cast watches it together, it's always an incredibly frustrating experience. That's why I'm glad that Breaking Dawn is going to be two movies, which I can finally say. So there's going to be less of that, less of having to lose stuff. I know you want specific things but I'm trying to think of one now but I can't.

How long have you known that Breaking Dawn was going to be two films, and how long will the shoot be?

Stewart: The shoot is going to be something like six months. We start in October. I think we're not going to be finished until maybe March or something, maybe February. I clearly don't really look at the schedule. I had to hold onto this forever. They've been talking about it for a really long time and we all definitely knew that it was going to be two movies forever now. It's been really hard not to say that. We're all really stoked on that.


What are you most looking forward to doing when you start shooting Breaking Dawn?

Facinelli: I'm looking forward to working with Bill Condon. He's phenomenal. I'm looking forward to hearing what his thoughts are on the series and the movie. It's cool because all these different directors have these different interpretations. You don't get complacent and sit back and go, "Ok. I know these characters." They're always asking you different questions and getting you to think deeper.

Check out the rest of the interview HERE!

Breaking Dawn: What We Know So Far


The most highly anticipated movie from The Twilight Saga is of course Breaking Dawn. With all of the rumors and speculations in the air, one can only guess as to what the final decisions will be.

As racy as that tropical island honeymoon sex scene in “Breaking Dawn” has the potential to be, the movies will stay PG-13, a Summit Entertainment executive told MTV News last week. Intrepid MTV News reporter Eric Ditzian spoke with distribution chief Richie Fay for all the advance “Breaking Dawn” details he could squeeze out of the guy, so we decided to make it easy on all of you, and give you a roundup of what we know so far:

1. IT WON’T BE RATED 'R'

“I don’t see it ever becoming an R-rated movie,” Fay said. “The middle road we have to travel is a mutual respect as to staying true to the book but not turning off your audience.

“It’s always with the eye of making Stephenie Meyer happy and making the audience happy,” he added. “I can’t say for a fact, but I just don’t see us getting into an R-rated area with any of the ‘Twilight’ titles.”

2. PART 2 DOES NOT HAVE A RELEASE DATE

“We’ve targeted a number of dates, and we have yet to determine when it will happen,” Fay said. “We haven’t even determined that it will be the summer. It’s still the source of discussions.

“We might have a preference when we see where ‘Eclipse’ ends up,” he said of whether it’ll be released in summer or winter of 2012. “It certainly might color our thinking, but we’re comfortable with either place. Right now, it’s a bit early in that stage of planning.”

3. FILMING IN 3-D IS STILL A STRONG POSSIBILITY

“That decision has yet to be made,” Fay said. “It’s still the source of a discussion.”

While rising 3-D ticket prices are a consideration, it’s mostly a creative issue. “There’s certainly a financial part of the discussion,” he said. “And yes, there’s a certain amount of technology that has to be considered and accounted for. But it really comes down to the creative folks.”

“In any of these roundtabls conversations, [Summit CEO] Rob Friedman has always been concerned about the ‘Twilight’ patron,” Fay added. “His concern is always the people that come in to see this movie. He doesn’t want to turn them off or offend. That’s why it’s a creative decision. A big factor is the perception of our audience. What are their feelings going to be? If it lends itself to being a better movie because of 3-D, then that’s the technology we’ll use.”


Another 1.5 years to go! :( [Breaking Dawn part 1 is scheduled to be released on November 18, 2011].

Breaking Dawn To Be Filmed In Louisiana And Vancouver

Summit Entertainment has announced two locales for the two-part 'Twilight Saga' ending.

When Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart dive back into the "Twilight" universe, they'll be doing so in both America's Deep South and Canada's Pacific Northwest.

"Breaking Dawn" will be filmed in both Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Vancouver, Canada, Summit Entertainment announced on Friday (July 9). Split into two separate films but being shot simultaneously, the production will ramp up in the fall and continue over the next year. No exact start date for filming was given.

The first film will be released on November 18, 2011. No official release date for the second part has been set, but as a Summit exec told MTV News this week, the studio is exploring multiple dates in 2012, both in the summer and later that year.

Many other questions remain about "Breaking Dawn," the most intriguing of which is the 3-D question: Will it be shot using 3-D cameras or converted to 3-D during post-production? Summit tells MTV News that such discussions are currently under way, but that no decision has yet been made. Much of the cast is onboard with the 3-D idea, including Kristen Stewart.

"I'm probably speaking out of line or whatever, but I think it would be awesome," she told MTV News. "Nobody knows what it's like to look through the eyes of a vampire. What if [Bella] opens her eyes to this extraordinary world? It could be cool."

Bill Condon ("Dreamgirls") will direct both parts of "Breaking Dawn," taking over for "Eclipse" director David Slade. Pattinson and the rest of the cast wrapped production on "Eclipse" at the end of October 2009, which means that when the stars show up on-set for "Breaking Dawn," about a year will have passed since they slipped into their respective roles as vampires and werewolves.

EXCLUSIVE! ‘Breaking Dawn’ WILL Be Erotic

Prepare yourself for some seriously hot scenes in Breaking Dawn, Twi-hards – Twilight screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg says the movie will be WAY racier than the book – and also reveals how parts one and two might be split!


When we heard that Breaking Dawn was being given a PG-13 rating, we definitely booed in disappointment. That book is hot – and the sex scenes need to be shown, dammit! We at HollywoodLife.com have good news for you – despite the lack of an R-rating, the fourth and fifth films are DEFINITELY going to be steamy!


“I don’t think we’ll be toning a whole lot [of the racy scenes] down,” Twilight screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg told HollywoodLife.com exclusively during a one-on-one interview before her Writer’s Guild Foundation event in LA July 13. “We want the eroticism of the sex scenes.”


Sweet! We can’t wait to see real-life lovebirds Robert Pattinson and Kirsten Stewart are going to steam up the screen! However, Melissa does say, “That doesn’t mean that one has to see it all, but you do want that [eroticism]. With the birth scene as well, I just don’t know that you have to tone it down. If you really look at the books, how much are you really seeing? I think [the movies] might wind up being saucier than the book because you’re actually seeing skin-on-skin and the horror of the birth scenes. We’re not shying away from it.”


As for how she plans on actually splitting up the epic last Twilight Saga novel into two films, Melissa has a good idea – but nothing is concrete QUITE yet. “We’re still debating the exact moment, but it’ll fall down to the first half of Bella as a human and being pregnant and a newlywed and the second half being Bella as a vampire and a parent. Somewhere in the middle of that, the break will come.”

Okay....I really hope they know what they are doing. Coz this is like the closure of the saga and it better be good. But then again...US might show it..but Malaysia will cut it. uurghhhh!!! Going to US to watch Breaking Dawn anyone?

Eclipse closing in on a Half A Billion Dollars at Box Office!


According to Gossip Cop and The Hollywood Reporter, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is still going strong at the box office domestically and overseas totalling $456 million to date.

Gossip Cop:

After two weekends in theaters, Eclipse continues to be strong.

The third installment in the Twilight Saga has earned $33.4 million this weekendat the box office in North America, bringing its total to $237 million domestically.

Internationally, the film took in another $81.1 million this weekend to bring its worldwide gross to $219 million.

That means, all across the globe, Eclipse has earned $456 million.

THR:

“Eclipse,” the third installment of Summit Entertainment’s “Twilight” franchise defied toasty summer weather in France and the U.K., opening No. 1 in these two key markets. Summit said the U.K. take was a jaw-dropping $21 million from 523 locations (including previews), the market’s biggest opening of 2010 and about $2 million more than “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” grossed in its market bow late last year.

The France gross opening tally was $12.4 million from an unspecified number of locales, also the highest opening market take of this year. By weekend’s end, “Eclipse” is expected to also be No. 1 in its opening round in South Korea and in its sophomore session in Australia — in addition to its first-place standing overall.


Well, I'm sure that most of you Twihards are still high on Eclipse fever. Despite the omission of the leg hitch, I bet there's still a whole lot of you who have seen the movie at least 2 times (or 5 or 10!). In my honest opinion, Eclipse is definitely a step up from the previous 2 movies. I'm glad that Nikki Reed and Jackson Rathbone had the opportunity to showcase their acting chops with Rosalie's and Jasper's backstory. Now, we'll wait for the release of the DVD so that we could watch the leg hitch, I mean the proposal scene again and again and again ... ;)

Will 'Eclipse' Beat 'New Moon' At The Box Office?

From the woods of Forks, Washington, to the executive suites of Summit Entertainment, all involved in "Eclipse" have to be applauding their efforts on the third installment of the "Twilight" franchise. The film opened to the largest six-day haul of any movie this year — $175.3 million — after getting a jump on the Fourth of July weekend with a Wednesday release.


Yet that applause is surely tempered somewhat, as "Eclipse" failed to out-gross "New Moon," its series predecessor, which opened last fall with $178.9 million in box-office receipts over six days. While there can be no exact comparisons between the initial performances of each film, since "New Moon" opened on Friday, all eyes are going to focus on the ultimate question: Will "Eclipse" defeat "New Moon" at the box office?

"It has a real shot at beating 'New Moon,' and that's after 'New Moon' set the bar so high," said Paul Dergarabedian, president of Hollywood.com's box-office division. " 'Twilight' fever is so intense that it burns bright at the front, and then it inevitably slows down. But the movie has good word of mouth, and it should hang in there."

"New Moon" finished up its theatrical run with $296.6 million, and as Box Office Mojo points out, 48 percent of that total came on its opening weekend, making it the most front-loaded blockbuster ever. What that means is Twilighters hit theaters early — and, in many cases, often — and "New Moon" simply couldn't sustain its audience enough to crack the upper echelon of all-time top-grossing flicks (it dropped a staggering 70 percent in its second weekend). Similarly, fans came out in droves for "Eclipse," and it remains to be seen if the film can avoid such a precipitous second-weekend fall.

'Eclipse' Costume Trivia: Deleted Scene, Karate Pants and More!



You can learn a lot about a character — and an actor — talking to a film’s costume designer. Here, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse‘s Tish Monaghan reveals a few secrets from the wardrobe closets:

• Robert Pattinson wanted to wear karate pants for the training sequence.
“So we got him some karate pants, and it’s like the crotch hangs down to the knees, and I just thought, Ugh. Who’s gonna go for this? Because everything has to be approved by Summit,” Monaghan says. “We took them in a little bit, and they loved the karate pants. Who knew? I was so surprised.”

• Even at the film’s premiere, people squealed when Taylor Lautner turned around in that black T-shirt.
“It was almost embarrassing. I felt so bad for him,” Monaghan says, with a laugh. “They were screaming and going ‘Wooooo!’” As she’d done on New Moon, her M.O. was to put him in smaller size Gap or Banana Republic T-shirts to emphasize his biceps, tightening the tees around the arm holes and taking them in down the side. (Pattinson wore Gap T-shirts, exclusively, she adds. “They were what fit him best. They had the best colors. So that’s what he ended up wearing, even when Edward takes Bella up to the tent. It may strike people as odd, but he doesn’t feel temperature, so that’s why we only put him in a shirt, and Bella’s all bundled up, and Jacob, of course, is running around shirtless.”

• Rosalie’s wedding dress was the star of a deleted scene:
For Rosalie’s flashback to the 1930s, Monaghan’s department both rented original period dresses and made two ensembles — the one she wore when she was attacked, and her wedding dress. “Unfortunately in the film, we only see her arriving at the door,” Monaghan says, of the latter’s entrance. “I’m not sure why the scene with her floating down the hallway was cut out — maybe it’s because the element of surprise had a stronger impact. They didn’t want us to know in advance who was coming to the door. But we made a silk train for her that floated down the hallway as she kind of hydroplaned down the carpet. [Actress Nikki Reed] was mounted on a contraption, almost like a bicycle seat, and the camera was in front of her and to the side, and she just when whoooooooosh. She was rolled down the hallway at quite the speed and a fan would blow up her veil so that it was trailing behind her. It looked wonderful. The train itself was probably about 10 or 12 feet, and then the veil went beyond that.”

• Riley (Xavier Samuel) has great taste in victims:
“The sensibility of all of the newborns, including Riley, is that they’re scavengers. They’re going to steal pieces from whomever they find. Riley just happened to find somebody who was wearing a G-Star jacket and some really cool jeans,” Monaghan says, with a laugh. “Once he was turned, I just wanted to put him in something that was edgy and very contemporary. We wanted to make him young and powerful but still have this kind of dark sexiness to him. We found this great G-Star jacket for him and tight, tight jeans and a beautiful Paul Smith shirt. And then he had one other change after that, which was the same jacket and tight reddish maroon jeans, which for us was important because once he got into battle with the Cullens and the werewolves, we had to separate the newborns from the Cullens color-wise. We had to make sure that there wasn’t any confusion as to who was on whose team when a body was flying through the air. So with the Cullens, we intentionally put them in black, dark navy or dark gray. With the newborns, we put them in earth tones and hints of brighter colors.”

• There’s a bit of old Victoria in new Victoria.
“Because of the transition from Rachelle Lefevre to Bryce Dallas Howard, we decided that the first time that we saw Victoria, we should definitely put her into pieces of the costume that we had last seen Victoria wearing in New Moon, just so that the audience, aside from her large mane of tangled red hair, would definitely know that this is who that character is. There’s all these things that you work on so hard, and then it ends up becoming such a subliminal thing,” Monaghan says. “Gradually, we transitioned out of that into something a little bit different to make it Bryce’s own character. Because she was going to be courting Riley, I wanted something that was dark and foreboding but still sensual, because she has to lure him. We made a black lace top with a zipper that kind of went around her neck, and you could unzip it as far down the front as was necessary. Just a romantic/punk look. It works really well with her red hair, and her skin showed through, and you could see that she was being a little bit of a siren and trying to work her magic on Riley.”

• Emmett wears lighter colors than the other Cullens to showcase Kellan Lutz’s muscles.
“Absolutely,” Monaghan says, when asked if this theory about his Old Navy hoodie is correct. “I also knew that the focus was going to be on him and his chase with Victoria in the woods, so I just really wanted to make sure that he stood out amongst all the dark backgrounds…. You probably won’t notice, but I made a very conscious decision to have the Cullens move through the color palette. They’re in lighter colors when they first hunt Victoria. The next big scene, when they’re in their workout wear, they’re in sort of midtones. Then when they have the final battle, that’s when I put them all in black, because I wanted them to be more stealth-like.”

• A lot of work goes into seconds of screen time.
Take the newborn army Jasper (Jackson Rathbone, in a uniform purchased from a company that clothes reenactment societies, then aged as though he’d been riding in the desert for months) trained in his Civil War flashback. “It’s so fast, but for us, we have to do the work and prepare for that scene just as much as we would for any character,” Monaghan says. “They were scavengers from the 1800s, so it was a mix of garments that they grabbed from different armys, bankers, merchants, hookers.” The siren who turned him and leads the army is actually wearing his jacket and sash over her skirt. “That’s just me trying to show the link between the two of them,” she says. “For us, it’s the challenge in doing all of these thematic linkings that makes our job worthwhile. It’s important to do it, even if nobody else notices.”

• It takes a village to build a village.
Unearthing what the Quileute tribe would have been wearing in the 1700s, before photography, was another challenge. Monaghan turned to ship logs from explorers who landed on the Pacific Coast and described the natives’ jewelry, their cedar bark clothing, and their dog-haired blankets. She looked at works by artist Paul Kane, and visited two Canadian museums of archeology with extensive native artifacts unearthed from burial sites. “We took all of this, and we said, ‘How are we gonna make this cheaply?’ Because we found someone was selling a recreated cedar cape online for $25,000 a garment. We ended up making them out of ground cover used in landscaping. We got something like 200 feet for $25,” Monaghan says. “So I had a whole team of people who made it one-time wear. We went to a taxidermist, and we got bones. We went to restaurants and got mussel shells. We went to another place and got abalone shells, which we used for our jewelry. We made hats out of straw baskets from Chinatown. We used wool blankets and raw silk. I was so happy with the outcome of recreating the Quileute village in the 1700s. I just thought it worked spectacularly for its, I think, 10 seconds of screen time.”

• You almost saw Kristen Stewart in a swimsuit.
That’s what Bella was wearing in the script when she was saying goodbye to her mother and the sun. “Realistically, that’s never gonna look good on anybody if they’re just lying there. If they’re gonna dive into a pool and swim, maybe,” Monaghan says. “I just approached the director and said, ‘Listen, can we just do cutoffs or something instead?’ I think originally, we were going to shoot on location [in Florida], but instead, we shot in Vancouver. The temperature was not warm at all, and we wanted to keep them comfortable as well.”

'Breaking Dawn' Movie Details

With "Eclipse" raking in piles of cash this past weekend, Twi-Hards are already asking how the next installment of the Twilight Saga will be adapted onto the big screen -- and filming hasn't even started yet!

As the faithful already know, Stephanie Meyers's final book, "Breaking Dawn" -- which, at 756 pages, is by far the longest of the series -- will be filmed in two parts, Harry Potter-style. What really has them sharpening their fangs, though, is just how closely the movies will draw from the books. Splitting "Breaking Dawn" into a pair of movies will certainly allow it to be truer to the book, but just how much of the -- SPOILER ALERT -- sex, gory birth scene and a half-vampire baby will really be depicted on the big screen?

Summit reps recently told Entertainment Weekly both "BD" films will be PG-13, making fans wonder just how graphic the film could get. But Melissa Rosenberg, the screenwriter for all the "Twilight" films, told fans via her Facebook page that she'd ensure plenty of blood and sex and feathers in the films.

As for where the films will actually be split apart, she anticipates it'll probably have to do with Bella's transformation into one of the undead. Director Bill Condon will helm the final two movies, and Taylor Lautner has called the director "ridiculously talented" and is excited to see what Condon will bring to "Breaking Dawn."

It also looks like everyone's favorite vampires and werewolves will be back for more. Besides Taylor Lautner, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart reprising the most dramatic vampire/werewolf/human love triangle in cinematic history, Peter Facinelli, Jackson Rathbone, Elizabeth Reaser, and Nikki Reed will all be back to fight baddie vampires another day. And after a salary dispute that nearly turned ugly, Ashley Green and hottie Kellan Lutz will also be reprising their roles in "Breaking Dawn."

The first part of "Breaking Dawn" is slated to be released on November 18, 2011.

'Twilight' eclipses record with $68.5M debut

Fans are over the moon for "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," which pulled in $68.5 million in its first day to set a new record for a movie debuting on Wednesday.

The third installment in the vampire romance surpassed the previous Wednesday record of $62 million set last year by "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen."

But "Eclipse" fell short of the all-time best opening day, a record held by its predecessor, last November's "The Twilight Saga: New Moon," which took in $72.7 million. "New Moon" opened on a Friday, typically a busier day at theaters than weekdays.

"Eclipse" opened in a record 4,416 theaters and expands to 4,468 cinemas Friday for the Fourth of July weekend, one of the biggest box-office weekends of the year.

With so much money already in the bank and a long holiday weekend ahead, distributor Summit Entertainment hopes "Eclipse" can top the $200 million haul for "Revenge of the Fallen" in its first five days, a record for a movie opening on Wednesday.

"It certainly is a target for us," said Richie Fay, head of distribution for Summit. "I'd be real hesitant to say that we will break that. We would love to and are striving to. We have the location and screen count that could get us there. But if the weather isn't in our favor, if people are out barbecuing and looking at fireworks Sunday night, we may not get there."

In a single day, "Eclipse" took in a fraction more than the $68 million the movie cost to produce.

Fay said "Eclipse" followed the pattern of "New Moon," whose audience was 80 percent female. With generally better reviews on "Eclipse" than its predecessors and a marketing campaign that played up the movie's action, Summit executives hope the latest sequel will draw in more males as the weekend progresses, he said.

"Eclipse" continues the story of brooding teen Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), caught in a love triangle involving her vampire boyfriend (Robert Pattinson) and her werewolf pal (Taylor Lautner). The new movie forces vampires and werewolves to set aside old rivalries and unite against a band of ravenous newborn bloodsuckers.

The franchise concludes with a two-part adaptation of "Breaking Dawn," the final novel in Stephenie Meyer's best-selling series. Part one of "Breaking Dawn" is due in theaters Nov. 18, 2011 .

ECLIPSE: Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson are reunited in latest Twilight Saga


THERE'S only one film to sink your teeth into this summer – the fangtastic Twilight sequel eclipse.

And it’s set to be bigger and better than the previous bloodsucker blockbusters as heroes Edward and Bella are faced with more action danger and romance than ever before.

Industry insiders are predicting Eclipse will put the previous epics Twilight and New Moon into the shade as Britain goes vampire-crazy for the latest instalment, which has its UK premiere tonight, July 1st, 2010.

This time, vamp-loving Bella has got just two things on her mind – being made into a bloodsucker herself and getting undead boyfriend Edward into bed.

But he refuses to jump between the sheets with her as he doesn’t believe in sex before marriage.

Eventually he promises to give into her desires, after she finishes school – and as long as she marries him before they get frisky and he makes her immortal.

Heart-throb Robert Pattinson, who plays Edward, reckons their chaste relationship keeps fans on the edge of their seats.

“If they just randomly had sex it would ruin the whole series,” the Brit actor says with a laugh. “It’s that moment of anticipation – whether it’s at the point of not knowing if someone likes you, or whether they like you enough to go into this.

“It’s the fear as well, especially if neither party has had sex before. I guess the fear kind of multiplies the desire and we’ve stretched that out. I think that’s why it has so many fans.”

For those who have missed out on the Twilight phenomenon, it revolves around Bella’s turbulent relationship with Edward, not helped by best friend and werewolf Jacob Black also being in love with her.

To make matters worse, werewolves and vampires are sworn enemies.

In Eclipse, Edward and Jacob battle it out for Bella’s affections. But their rivalry isn’t the only problem. An army of bloodthirsty newborn vamps led by the evil Victoria from the first film are terrorising the area.

Flame-haired Victoria (Bryce Dallas Howard, 29) is desperate for revenge after her lover was killed by Edward and is determined to kill Bella, leading to the franchise’s most exciting battle scene yet.

For both Kristen and Rob, nick-named R-Pattz by his legion of adoring girl fans, this was their most challenging film of the series yet.

Rob, 24, says: “Action for action’s sake is kind of boring. But this has a massive battle scene with the newborn vamps.

“There’s a lot of kissing and snuggling and hugging and then there’s the huge battle. It’s definitely something different.

“In the first two movies Edward has one problem – whether to be with this girl. He has one decision to make and it’s answered in New Moon. And now he has to connect to the real world, which opens a massive amount of emotion.

“That is much more fun to play, more complex. He’s coming out of his shell, so hopefully by the end he’ll be a normal 17-year-old guy who’s just a little pale.”

Kristen adds: “I think Edward’s a great guy, but what I think is really special about the story is how they feel about each other.

“They are undeniably drawn to one other by an animal instinct, but at the same time they are perfect for each other in a human way as well.”

But American beauty Kristen, 20, admits she was left red-faced by the scene where she tries to seduce Edward – even though the pair are an item in real life.

“It was horrible,” she reveals. “You have no idea! It was really embarrassing because it’s not normal for a girl to be in that position.

His traditional values are quite sweet but they are just not hers and it was pretty embarrassing to be treated like such an animal.”

The rivalry between Edward and Jacob (hunky Taylor Lautner, 18) also hots up in Eclipse as Bella decides who she loves the most.

“For some reason, I find it quite funny when I’m doing stuff with Taylor,” says Rob.

“There are a couple of confrontational scenes where I push him around a little bit. I thought I’d really scare him and grab him and it would freak him out and turn the scene upside down.

“Then I grabbed his shoulder and it was actually too big to get a grip on so I just dropped my hand. It was embarrassing.

“I got him back though. He kept having to dress up in a little grey Spandex wolf suit and try to be intimidating with Kristen patting him on the head. That was funny.

“Seriously, though, it was good because I never do anything with anyone except for Kristen and this was about letting Edward have petty emotions like being jealous of Jacob and not being able to control himself because he gets under his skin so much.

“It becomes much easier to play much bigger scopes of emotion once you let someone else get through your armour.”

Bella kisses Jacob in one sizzling scene and realises she’s in love with him, but just not as much as with Edward.

And giggling Kristen admits it was her favourite scene. “On set that day people were walking around calling me a floozy,” she says with a giggle.

“I went: ‘Geez, what’s wrong?’ I like it because it’s so different and it shocks the hell out of her and completely changes the dynamic she has with her boyfriend.

“It was awkward to shoot because I know Taylor so well and we are such good friends, but it was only awkward before and after. In the middle of it, it did feel the way it should have felt.”

Notoriously tight-lipped about their personal lives, both Rob and Kristen clam up when asked about their relationship.

But Rob admits he understands why their army of fans – known as Twihards – are so obsessed with them being together.

He says: “I guess people like stories. My basic conclusion is that they just want everything to be about Twilight.”

More round-up of the Eclipse B.O. opening success


'Eclipse' Fans Swarm Midnight Screenings Across Globe
Theaters from Finland to the Philippines held early screenings of 'Twilight' movie.

The wait ended at midnight, and as MTV News can attest, the lines fans eager to see "Eclipse" snaked around theaters in New York and Los Angeles.

Those two metropolises weren't the only places beset by "Twilight" fervor. Deadline Hollywood reports that theaters in Boston, Washington D.C., Detroit, Cleveland, Denver and Salt Lake City were mobbed at midnight. So too were the theaters holding early screenings in countries like Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Brazil, Mexico, the Philippines, Belgium, Netherlands, Poland, Hungary and Finland.

At this point, "Eclipse" ranks as the widest domestic release in history as it opens in 4,416 theaters in North America — besting the record set by "Iron Man 2" earlier this year. Four thousand of those theaters held midnight screenings, Deadline reported, and several theater chains also had 3 a.m. screenings to meet public demand. IMAX was expected to hold 3 a.m. screenings in 120 of its theaters.

In the run-up to release, fans were also taking precautions against widespread sellouts, as "Eclipse" pre-sales spiked. Fandango reported that the vampire flick accounted for 91 percent of ticket sales on Tuesday, after staying in the site's top five since the pre-sale started in mid-May.

By the end of the weekend, "Eclipse" should have a staggering box-office haul. Early tracking suggests a three-day-weekend gross of as much as $140 million, with a six-day purse of up to $180 million.

Those are monster numbers, no doubt, but when you listen to how excited fans are, it's really not that surprising at all.

"I'm really excited," Oladayo Idowu, told MTV News outside a theater in New York. "I'm here for [the midnight showing], so I'm surprised my mom even let me out! I've been waiting for this movie since I saw 'Twilight.' I'm going to see it again and again and again."

'Eclipse's' early release sets sales record
Threequel's midnight Tuesday screenings took in $30 million

It may not eclipse the opening-weekend performance of franchise predecessors, but Summit Entertainment's vampire-romance threequel "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" is off to a bloody good -- and record -- start.

"Eclipse" fetched more than $30 million in estimated boxoffice from more than 4,000 domestic theaters programming midnight Tuesday performances, an unprecedented tally. The witching-hour coin will be lumped in with Wednesday grosses.

A first sequel -- "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" -- opened with $142.8 million in November, en route to registering $296.6 million in total U.S. and Canadian coin. Opening with midnight Thursday performances, "New Moon" rose to a then-record $26.3 million in witching-hour loot and a record $72.7 million in first-day Friday boxoffice.

The original "Twilight" unspooled in November 2008 with a first-weekend haul of $69.6 million and a total domestic cume of $192.8 million.

Prior to "New Moon," the record for midnight boxoffice was held by Warner Bros.' "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," which rung up $22.2 million from its earliest performances.

Special exhibitor Imax, which is showing "Eclipse" in 192 domestic locations, said the threequel sunk its teeth into a record $1 million-plus from Imax venues offering midnight performances. The tally eclipsed a then-record Imax midnight haul of $959,000 by Paramount's "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" from June 2009.

"Eclipse" is expected to ring up more than $150 million through Monday, playing in a record 4,410 total locations. The coming weekend is considered a four-day theatrical frame, with Independence Day falling on Sunday and most U.S. workers marking a holiday on Monday.

In comparing the "Eclipse" debut with its franchise predecessors, industryites will be watching the threequel's Wednesday-through-Friday grosses. But domestic rankings for the Independence Day holiday weekend will be based on Friday-through-Monday boxoffice.

Many believe "Eclipse" will have scooped so much boxoffice cream off the top of its opening by Friday, that its first-weekend tally will fall well short of $100 million. That still would top weekend rankings, with Paramount's 3D family adventure "The Last Airbender" expected to open at No. 2 with about $50 million forecast in a Thursday-through-Monday debut.

Directed by David Slade ("30 Days of Night"), "Eclipse" features Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart reprising roles of vampire, werewolf and anguished love interest, respectively.
