New Moon newbit…will be cute enough for Robert Pattinson???

April 2, 2009

New Moon is stocking up on new blood. Last week we told you that Kristen Stewart is getting some gorgeous competition in Noot Seear, but now Robert Pattinson had better watch out for Jamie Campbell Bower. Pattz’s fellow Brit, who also played a young lover (and singer) in Sweeney Todd with Johnny Depp, has been cast as Volturi leader Caius in the Twilight sequel. “Shooting has already begun, and I’m going over in June,” Campbell Bower tells the BBC, admitting that being a part of the popular series is “very exciting…It’s a great thing to be a part of, and it did very well last year.” He joins Seear and Dakota Fanning as the members of the Italy-based group of vampires, the casting of which has been slowly announced. “I do know who else will be in it—but I can’t tell you, unfortunately. But go online and have a look at the rumors,” he says, adding, “They’re all false. You’re putting me in a terrible situation.”

The rising star admittedly questions whether he’ll have the same effect on the ladies as a certain costar. “I doubt I’ll get the same sort of adulation as Robert—but it’s always nice when people recognize you for your work.”

Kristen Stewart….expanding her horizons……

April 2, 2009

According to “Superbad” writer/director Greg Mottola, he designed his follow-up film “Adventureland” with the hope that it would play like a great pop song. His stars say they can see the comparison. “It’s very emotional,” Kristen Stewart said. “It’s got a thumping heartbeat at the core of it, and it’s got rhythm.” “And the movie is only three minutes long,” co-star Jesse Eisenberg teased. “I don’t know if I would use that example necessarily,” Ryan Reynolds countered. “I feel like it plays a lot like some of the greatest ’80s movies that I loved. I mean the ‘Say Anything … ‘s — that Cameron Crowe wheelhouse.” Those movies, however, were always driven by an unforgettable soundtrack (it’s no coincidence that “Adventureland” and “Say Anything … ” feature songs by the Replacements); an ’80s setting (“Adventureland” is loosely based on Mottola’s youth); and a sweet-but-pathetic central character, played by Eisenberg but owing a debt to John Cusack’s Lloyd Dobler. “There’s so many different elements — it’s dramatic, it’s funny, it also feels like this one complete experience,” Eisenberg said of “Adventureland,” which casts the three actors as a love triangle working miserable jobs at a low-rent amusement park. “The movie is very consistent, even though there’s all these different elements. So maybe that is kind of similar to a pop song.” At least Reynolds can speak from experience. “I look back at the ’80s, and it’s, like, really sketchy fashion choices,” the 32-year-old actor laughed, thinking about his love scenes with the 18-year-old Stewart. “She looks back at the ’80s as exiting the birth canal. So it’s a completely different scenario for us both.” “If I had a time machine,” 25-year-old Eisenberg said, “I’d probably bring back a pet rock or something. Wait, that was ’70s. What was ’80s?” “Um, the Chia Pet?,” guessed Stewart, who was born in 1990. “It grew fuzzy.” “You put seeds on the lamb and it grew,” Eisenberg remembered. “It was a ceramic lamb or something.” “Or a turtle,” Stewart said. “Either way,” Eisenberg grinned. “It’s still a stupid item.” As for now, Stewart is happy being a 21st-century movie star and encouraged her loyal “Twilight” admirers to go see “Adventureland” and not spend their money mailing her Chia Pets. “No,” she laughed, perhaps remembering Mike Welch’s socks. “I’m OK.”

Please give us feedback to know whether to write of Kristen Stewart as an actress or Kristen Stewart as Bella???? Basically do u guys love Kristen because of Kristen or because of Bella????…Your wish is my command…..

New Moon on set

Diligently at work on their new movie, Kristen Stewart teamed up with Taylor Lautner to film scenes for “New Moon” in Vancouver on Tuesday (March 31). The superstar pair stood side-by-side to start things off, with Kristen then filming a few action scenes during a solo shoot to cap off the day. Meanwhile, Kristen and Taylor’s co-star, Nikki Reed, took her turn on the set the previous day, looking in high spirits as she wandered about the set.

“New Moon” is the much-anticipated sequel to “Twilight,” with a theatrical release date set for November 20, 2009.

Twilighter’s……April Fool’s!!!!!!!!!!

April 1, 2009

Twilight's Japan Premiere: Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner Late Tuesday night, mere hours before it was officially April Fools’ Day, blogs started to report that Robert Pattinson wouldn’t appear in “Twilight” sequel “New Moon.” All the sites had different reasons for RPattz’s exit from the film. PopSugar reported that he wanted out due to all the fan frenzy surrounding him and that he hoped to stick to smaller films in the future. The blog also said Taylor Lautner would assume the role of Edward Cullen. “Enraged fans have already started sending costume vampire teeth to Robert as a plea to get him back,” the post read. “But it looks like he’s sticking to his decision.” Meanwhile, ScreenRant.com reported that the “production of ‘New Moon’ has shut down due to a dispute on the set,” adding, “It seems that star Robert Pattinson has been butting heads with director Chris Weitz over not only script decisions, but apparent favoritism towards cast newcomer Dakota Fanning. Fanning has a much more established acting pedigree than Robert Pattinson, and according to reports, he’s pretty torqued about the difference in treatment on the set.” The site also had a new Edward Cullen lined up: Zac Efron. “Apparently the director and producers were impressed by Zac Efron’s performance in another teen-targeted film: ‘High School Musical,’ ” the post read. “They think Efron could be a good fit, and maybe even better than Robert Pattinson in the role and for the box office of future ‘Twilight’ films.”

Rest easy, Twilighters: Rob isn’t going anywhere.

Robert Pattinson comments on New Moon….

April 1, 2009

Robert PattinsonFor Twilight movie fans who are anxiously awaiting the sequel but haven’t read the second book in the vampire series, New Moon, the film’s star Robert Pattinson offers this advice — be ready for something different and perhaps a little strange. Pattinson became an overnight sensation playing a lovestruck vampire in the smash hit that sucked $373.4 million from global box offices, and he is in Vancouver this week starting production on the film version of New Moon. Before that sequel lands in theatres in November, Pattinson plays eccentric painter Salvador Dali in Little Ashes, which opens in art houses May 8 and tells of a homosexual love affair between Dali and the poet Federico Garcia Lorca. But for now his turn as immortal vampire Edward Cullen, who falls in love with high school girl Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) in Twilight, has catapulted him to fame and his fans are dying for details on New Moon. Pattinson, for one, is cautious. “The book of New Moon, the majority of it is incredibly depressing,” Pattinson said. “Obviously Twilight was about finding first love and the difficulties of that, but New Moon is really about loss and reconciliation, but the reconciliation isn’t completely full. It’s a strange story to have for a market that, I guess, wants to see a love story. “Nevertheless, the London-born Pattinson said everyone involved is working to make New Moon as big a success as Twilight.

Pattinson’s rising star has turned the former model into a favourite target of the paparazzi. Only last year, he was a relatively unknown actor whose big film credits were supporting roles in a pair of Harry Potter movies.

Runway models in New Moon!!!! Noot Seear is in…Anna Lynne is not….

April 1, 2009

noot seearThe gorgeous, violet-eyed vamp that leads unsuspecting humans to their death in “New Moon” will be played by a fashion model, according to E Online. 25-year-old runway model Noot Seear will be the face of the vampire vixen that is described in the book as “not only the fisherman, but also the bait.” Anna Lynne McCord, who plays Naomi on “90210,” was in talks for the role last month. The news that she will not be joining the cast will likely disappoint her good friend, and rumored boyfriend, Kellan Lutz, who plays Emmett Cullen. If you haven’t heard of Seear, don’t feel bad. Known for her “pout and cheekbones” according to New York Magazine, the Canadian model was styled as the Mona Lisa for Yves Saint Laurent’s 1998 ad campaign. Her runway and advertising credits include Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Giorgio Armani, Vera Wang and Pantene Pro-V. She has also been featured in such heavy-hitters as Cosmopolitan and Vanity Fair. This beauty was born in Vancouver, where Chris Weitz and team are currently shooting “New Moon,” Does this mean that she won’t get to take the trip to Italy? Here’s a fun bit of Twilight trivia: her real name is Renata Seear. If that name sounds familiar, it is because Renata was Aro’s bodyguard, mentioned in Breaking Dawn.

Will Renata do justice to the role of one of the most beautiful and deadly vampires in the series? Please let all of us Twilight fans know below!!!

Twilight’s Saga: New Moon more tragic??? That’s what Kristen is saying….

April 1, 2009

kristen stewartAs legions of “Twilight” fans no doubt already know, the vampire Edward Cullen leaves behind his town—and his true love, Bella—at the beginning of “New Moon.” That’s some heavy stuff, so it’s no surprise that the actress who plays Bella views the second book as considerably more harsh than the first one. “It’s a struggle,” Kristen Stewart told the Los Angeles Times. “It’s almost lower-key, almost depressing. It’s more tragic this time around. It’s not as sunshine and roses.” That’s not to say the original movie was some G-rated, feel-good popcorn flick. After all, Edward and Bella had to fight off blood-thirsty vampires throughout the film, and Ms. Swan eventually wound up in the hospital after a nasty bite. But a vampire noshing on your flesh is nothing compared to being left behind by your true love. “[Bella] loses him, which is certainly a crazy concept for me to accept because that’s the basis for the entire first movie,” Stewart said. Losing Edward means Bella dives into the troubling world of werewolves with her friend Jacob Black. But that adversity seems to be an opportunity for the teenage character to mature. “She grows up quite a bit,” the 18-year-old actress said. “She’s forced to, and she’s got strength and inner determination. A lot of people in her situation would be like, ‘OK, done.’” While Bella is beset by challenges throughout “New Moon,” Stewart believes that with “Twilight” under her belt, making the second movie will be, if not easier, than certainly a fresh experience. “The beginning is different,” she said. “Pre-production is different. I’m not trying to make something. It’s already there, just going back into it. Different. It’s just a continuation.” The continuation, of course, has already began. Filming is underway in Vancouver and the cast grows almost every day. The latest additions are Canadian model Noot Seear (who will play Heidi) and British actor Jamie Campbell-Bower (who will play Caius). “It’s a different movie,” says Stewart, “but a lot happens.”

Which of the first two books did you prefer? Does darker “Twilight” material mean a better movie—or just different? Please make comments and let us know!!
