On Saturday night there were Twilight Events all over the US. Some fans watched Twilight & New Moon under the star especially with the Lunar Eclipse – it would have been a magical Twilight night. Cast members of the Eclipse dropped by these events and spent time with the fans.

Johnathan Eusebio has the job to coordinate the fight scenes in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. LA Times has this interview with him.
The Canadian-born son of two nurses, Eusebio moved to California as a third-grader and took up taekwondo, boxing, judo and several other martial arts a few years later. “When I was growing up, I used to watch a lot of Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung,” Eusebio said. “Hung is one of Jackie’s seniors, and he’s a famous martial artist in Hong Kong and China. The way I see choreography is influenced by those guys.”
Lively up yourself: While the previous “Twilight” installments may have been more focused on emotions, the third movie packs a real punch. “It wasn’t a fight-intensive series to begin with, but the third one is starting to get a lot of battles,” Eusebio said “There’s a big sequence when the Cullens have to train for fighting [another group of] vampires. There’s a big charge at the end where the Cullens have to fight all the newborn vampires. And then there’s a big scene where Edward has to fend off Victoria and her new lover Riley. So this movie has a lot of action going on in there.”
Art versus life: Eusebio calls film fighting “an entirely differently monster than actual, real fighting. It’s the same basics, but the movement and the philosophy of the movement are different. In film fighting, it looks like there’s contact, but there’s no contact. You want to hide your movements in real fighting. In movie fighting, you have to make everything long so the camera can see it as well as the audience. It’s like choreography, like a dance between the two combatants.”
Supersize it: Vampires present their own set of challenges. “You want to keep everything kind of realistic in tone to avoid making it look too superhero-ish, but the thing is they are superhuman,” Eusebio said. “Everything is exaggerated. So when they throw someone, the impacts are huge. When they chase somebody, they’re super fast. When they jump, they jump a little higher. We try to do creative camera work; we try to do wires; and we might have to use visual and special effects to help us out.”

“The big connection for us is ‘Here’s a wildly popular book series about vampires — which are awesome — set in the Northwest,’ and we happen to be from the Northwest as well, so there’s this sort of hometown pride kind of thing going on,” Harmer said. “I’m kind of happy that Stephenie Meyer put Forks, Washington, on the map for the entire globe.
