Taylor’s new movie ‘Abduction’ will tentatively open in Singapore in September according to Yahoo Movies (so keep your eyes peeled!)
Here’s the final version of the movie’s poster.
Here’s talking to Fandango about the film.
On Jimmy Kimmel:
Check this out! Fandango premiered the 1st TV Spot for New Moon! It’s coming closer………
Sometime in July we ran reports of a few internet news sources who were invited to the New Moon set during its film production. Now Hitfix.com has released audio recordings of their interviews with Taylor Lautner, Rachelle LeFevre, Michael Sheen, Cameron Bright, Wyck Godfrey, Melissa Rosenberg, Charlie Bewley and stunt co-ordinator Cam Waldbauer.We’re pretty sure you’ve read the actual interviews but just the same listening to it is more interesting.
Fandango.com has also published the Part 2 of their The Twilight Saga: New Moon set visit. Lizerne Guiting fills us in… wooot! Beware! Loadsa spoilers neh!!
There’s a smoky haze all around the sound studio and the air is heavy with the smell of sawdust. We media folks are gathered around the viewing area, where monitors and headphones are set up for VIPs who have their names on the back of their chairs. Stephenie Meyer and screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg are among them. We’re standing behind them, quietly scribbling notes on every little thing.
….Jane and Edward’s Torturous Scenes
One little vampire who plays a huge role in the new film is Jane, played by Dakota Fanning. As the more prominent witch twin, she’s known for her an angelic look that clashes with her sadistic persona. In the scenes we view, she’s using her special gift—inflicting pain on her victims without lifting a finger—on Edward. Edward’s scene was altogether filmed separately since he was on wires, but let’s include what we saw from that scene, too, for continuity.
Robert Pattinson is cloaked in a hooded crimson, velvet, Volturi robe and his bare chest is partly exposed. As Aro gives Jane the green light to try her power on Bella, Edward runs in front of her and he receives the full fury of Jane’s infliction. Pattinson stops in his tracks, arches his head back and expresses a look of excruciating pain. He lets out a grunt, the wires pull him back, and then drop him on his back. A camera that’s zoomed in on Jane’s face shows her red eyes widen and follow him to the spot on the ground where he falls. She hardly blinks. As Bella begs her to stop, Jane keeps staring, and her lips curve into a faint, smug smile.
Meyer and others watch throughout, mesmerized. After the take, Dakota stops by the viewing area and says “See you tomorrow!” to Meyer. Fanning looks nearly unrecognizable with her pale skin and her hair pulled back into a sophisticated, twist up-do. Her red lips match her wide, blood-red eyes, accented with smoky eye-shadow. She’s wearing a black and purple, hooded dress coat with a small cape around her shoulders. “The coat’s adorable!” Meyer says. After she’s left, Dakota’s stand-in provides a much better look at her paper-thin, pixie-like dress underneath. It’s cream-colored and layered, and she’s wearing white tights and one-inch heeled Mary Janes.
Whoa!! Can’t wait for New Moon!!

tMF wrote an article on Robert Pattinson and the papparazzi that has been following him around.
Since March 2008, tMF and Pattinson Online have been affiliates. A lot of big things has happened but practically nothing has changed post Twilight era – only that Robert Pattinson is now the world’s most popular actor and from a few Rob fansites (I know of only 3 back then) there are now dozens of sites and blogs competing, promoting and breathing Rob Pattinson. But what makes this particular site different? My friend Isabel, one of the partners and its PR Director has this to say:
What sets our site apart from the plethora out there, according to our fans: our no rumour, no paparazzi policy, our Pattycast, and the Pattinson Online Network. Pattinson Online has been and continues to be the only Robert Pattinson website that is both rumour and paparazzi free. We do not believe that Robert’s privacy has to be breached or his image compromised for us to gain significant hits. On the contrary, we believe we have become more popular as a result. Fans write to us by the multitudes, daily, to let us know how much they appreciate a consistent site with reliable news. That is what we see ourselves as – not so much a fansite, but a very reliable source for Robert Pattinson news. We verify most rumours with Rob’s management before posting anything doubtful. We stay away from pap-filled news outlets as sources and we create great partnerships connections with people in the business.
They teamed up with Pattinson Online who has created a project called F.L.A.N.S. (Fangirl Leaders Against Needless Stalking). You can read the full article on tMF and you can visit Project F.L.A.N.S if you would like to know more about it. It’s a site dedicated to protecting Robert Pattinson’s safety and sanity by educating the fans.
The Twilight magazine (above) can now be bought at Kinokuniya in Singapore! It has nice pics, decent articles and a New Moon poster that has Edward, Bella and Jacob on it. The magazine costs S$18.90! Thanks to our Twimum, Janelene for the info!
Fandango has an exclusive set visit interview with Jamie Campbell Bower who plays Caius in New Moon.
Q. How would you describe Caius’ look?
Campbell Bower: I had a discussion with (costume designer) Tish (Monaghan), and we figured out that Caius probably doesn’t get to go out that much, so… he just steals his clothes from previous victims. The style is nice and smart and sleek and slim and – yeah, I like it. It’s very Italian, and I like the shoes, particularly.
Q. How much is expanded on in the 18th century flashback scenes?
Campbell Bower: A little bit – not very much as far as the Volturi go. It’s awesome. It does look really cool and it will be kind of shocking. I don’t want to go too far and ruin it for anyone.
Q. Are you signed on for Eclipse and Breaking Dawn?
Campbell Bower: I possibly will be coming back for number four. Number three, not at the moment. I don’t think Caius appears at all in number three.

Rotten Tomatoes has their day two report of their New Moon set visit.
“We have wire work, but we’re really trying to not do a lot of it,” he explained. “We don’t want to get into the Hong Kong – floaty stuff that you see all the time, vampires hanging in the air and all of that. It’s a tough call, because wires are wires, and the inherent problem with them is exactly that. They get floaty on you. So we’re having a heck of a time trying to find the balance that gives us enough to make it supernatural without it being over the top.”
Pattinson wore a dark burgundy hooded robe, his chest exposed. And yes, it was impeccably hairless and like alabaster, just as Meyer wrote it. Girls will swoon. Greene stood next to him, wearing a white and gray striped robe and red gloves. Stewart stood between them in black jeans, a short sleeved shirt, and sneakers.
As Pattinson rushed forward, wires attached to his clothing were rigged to jerk him back the moment that Jane’s attack — an invisible psychosomatic blast of pain — hit him. He grimaced in pain as the camera closed in, neck muscles straining with effort. Finally, he fell to his knees before collapsing on the ground with a loud thud.
Behind the stage, Meyer and screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg sat together, nodding in agreement. It looked good on the monitors.

MSN Superfans were one of the 5 internet media outlets that were especially invited to Vancouver to visit The Twilight Saga : New Moon set. The other 4 were Hollywood.com, RottenTomatoes.com, HitFix.com, Fandango.com. Lookout in the next few days and weeks for their observations and reports on the Making of New Moon. All of them basically have the same story as they were brought in together a group through the film shoot and met various members of the cast in the space of 2 days. The beauty is reading through their reports for their individual takes on what they saw.
Now lets get back to MSN Superfans’ Myriam Gabriel-Pollock, here’s her report:
It’s about a month and a half into the production of “The Twilight Saga: New Moon,” and director Chris Weitz and crew have begun filming the highly anticipated Volturi scenes. We are in a soundstage about 45 minutes outside downtown Vancouver, and the dimly lit studio smells of sawdust. Looming almost 40 feet high and occupying most of the building is the Volturi lair’s interior set. The outside of the rotunda is covered in scaffolding, but the interior is breathtaking. Two arched doorways lead into a long hall that follows the curve of the building. Beautiful statuary and ornate columns look so real — until I knock on one and discover that it’s carved and painted Styrofoam. Movie-making magic, indeed!
…The screens show Dakota Fanning as Jane and Cameron Bright as Alec, two of the most dangerous and specially gifted Volturi. Michael Sheen is off camera, but his chilling voice intones, “Let’s see if she’s immune to all of us. Shall we, Jane?” Dakota does two more takes of this scene, in which she has no dialogue. She spends long moments looking fiercely at someone (probably Bella) her smug smile slowly giving way to a quiet rage. In her red contact lenses, vampire makeup, and a coiled white-blond up-do, she is the perfect incarnation of a demon with an angel’s face. When Fanning finishes the scene, she comes by with a quick hello before taking leave; up close, her red eyes are even more disconcerting.
…We are leaning against the wall when the stage door opens and a small group enters. As they approach, I notice the tallest one of all; the well-coiffed, bronze hair is a dead giveaway. Robert Pattinson in Edward makeup and clothing, walks right by on his way to the set. In person he is tall and lean, and leaves no doubt that he is the physical embodiment of Edward Cullen, with a profile and facial features that are preternaturally beautiful and heart-stopping.
…The scene we watch is of Aro stepping down from his throne to greet Edward, Bella and Alice, who approach him with great trepidation. Aro cheerfully greets them, “What a happy surprise, Bella is alive after all! I love a happy ending.” He asks Edward, “Her blood appeals to me — how can you stand to be so close to her?” Edward’s restrained, velvet voice answers, “It’s not without its difficulties.” Aro turns to Bella and adds, “Fascinating. I’d like to see if you are an exception to my gift as well. Would you do me the honor?” Bella places her hand in Aro’s, at his behest.
They film this scene at least five times, from different angles, with the camera on different actors. A helpful production assistant explains to me that they take many varied shots of the same scene so the director and film editor will have several angles and shots to choose from when they put the scene together in the editing room.
It is Day 2 of our visit, and we return to the Volturi set in Studio B. Ramzy, the Summit representative who’s been acting as our tour guide, tells us we’ll be seeing some wire work today. The scene we are privy to is Edward in pain because of Jane’s mental manipulations.
As we watch, Rob is pulled forward abruptly by wires attached to his wrists. This brings his face very close to the camera and his head fills the monitor screen. He then looks up, neck tendons straining, as his face silently expresses sheer agony, before he drops to the ground with a grunt. I’m not actually sure if the grunt is a result of Rob’s pain or Edward’s pain. He does several takes of this scene, and he’s dropping to the hard floor, not onto a cushion.(!! Ouch)
…It is 3:30 p.m., and we’re famished. We head over to the craft services tent for a late lunch. There is a nice variety of food, nothing out of the ordinary or remarkable, except that the Volturi are also having their lunch. Fanning, Bright, Bewley, Heyerdahl and Sheen are all in here, as well as many other Volturi extras. It looks like a tent full of Marilyn Manson’s relatives. Lunch ends with some fabulous chocolate tarts.
As we wait for our vans, Bright stops by and talks to us for a bit. He’s a sweet young guy who lives just outside of Victoria, British Columbia. He is clearly excited to be a part of “New Moon,” and his enthusiasm is refreshing.
Myriam also spoke to Cameron Bright and here’s an excerpt of her interview.( Check it out! The Volturis also have their family crest! Woooo )
Were you a “Twilight” fan beforehand? Have you read the books?
Never read the books but I did watch the movie. Because a lot of people were saying like, it was half and half— all the guys were saying it was bad, and all the girls were saying it was good. I actually liked it, I didn’t mind it at all. And now obviously, I have to be in it, so…yeah [Laughs.]
Do you get to go to Italy with the rest of the crew?
Nope, the whole Volturi family is going except for me!
Yeah, exactly! [Laughs.] Maybe now they’ll be like, “We’ll send him, out of pity!
Your wardrobe, that pendant you’re wearing—do you know what those symbols are?
I don’t know, they just kind of slapped it on me. I know that’s a “V” for Volturi, I’m guessing? Because I’m a Volturi…I really have no idea what you’re asking. [Laughs.]
Does yours match Daniel’s?
The whole Volturi family has it because that’s their family seal. I don’t really know all of it.
Here’s Fandango’s Lizerne Guiting’s take on the visit:
Rachelle Lefevre Shares Stunt Secrets
At the end of Day 1, we visited a different sound stage to watch Rob Pattinson film special effects. He wore a dark gray suit with strategically disheveled hair, and spent most of the time standing on a platform in front of what looked like an IMAX-size neon green screen for his scenes in which he appears as a hallucination to Bella. A long dolly track was laid down for the camera to travel from one end of the studio to the other, where he was standing. We media folks stayed at the other end of the track, unable to hear anything he said, but Rachelle Lefevre (who plays Victoria) was also at that end. She let us in on all the stunts she’d been filming, which made up for not being able to hear Rob.
For the past two and half weeks, she’s been filming her own scenes – up 25 feet high in the trees. She and the cast have a running joke about not seeing each other while filming. “I see them all the time at night, but I never see them during the day,” Lefevre says. “They’re like, ‘Where are you?’ And I’m like, ‘Oh, you guys don’t know, but we’re making a whole other movie in the woods, like half an hour away.’”
She has a stunt double, and she’s harnessed while shooting, but that doesn’t quell Lefevre’s fear of heights with all the shooting in the trees. “I’m absolutely terrified when I’m up there,” she says. “I’m like, ‘Wow, I don’t know how I’m gonna bring myself to jump from here, this freefall leap.’ And then they say ‘action’ and you just do it. It’s this bizarre thing where you don’t want to get all the way up there and then not do it. Failure’s just not an option.”
As we mentioned yesterday and confirmed by Rachelle LeFervre on her Twitter,
“So unbelievable happy about Xavier cast as Riley!!! He is so lovely & talented & perfect for the role. Ladies, hold on to your hearts…”
( Your warning is heeded Rachelle)
The Daily Telegraph has comments from the 25 year old Australian,
In Eclipse he takes on the role of a newborn vampire named Riley, a good-looking university student involved in a plot to kill Stewart’s character Bella.
Samuel is still getting his head around the Twilight phenomenon.
“I managed to catch the film on the way over on the plane,” he said. He admitted he’s not read any of the best-selling books of the series – yet.
“I’m going to start reading the first one tonight.”
Twilight in Oscar Night? Let’s wait and see!
Twilight may not be nominated for any Oscars, but that doesn’t mean the movie won’t be a part of Hollywood’s biggest night on Feb. 22.
“I promise you, there will be a presence,” Laurence Mark, a first-time producer of this year’s Academy Awards, tells me. “You’ll see. I promise there is and on more than one occasion.” Source.
Fandango has their Top 10 Best & Worst Screen Couple. Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson is listed at #7 in the Top 10 Best Screen Couple.
A Twilight parody by Hillywood. Enjoy this one!
Seriously, you’ve never had an intense love affair like Edward and Bella’s?
(laughs) I had a very intense relationship before, but never like Edward and Bella!
Robert Pattinson in theater? Variety has the full story.
It wasn’t the most preposterous of ideas — Pattinson appeared alongside Radcliffe in two of the “Harry Potter” movies. But Pugh told Variety that won’t happen. He has, however, confirmed that he and Pattinson will be working together on a theater project in 2010. More than that he won’t say.
I’m listening to the following interviews now and Rob is really cute. Listen for yourself.
His voice is kind of softer in this interview, actually. Yes, you did not hear wrongly, in the first video the interviewer said that Rob isn’t as “good looking in real life”. LOL. And I am unsure why he didn’t mention “Parts Ber Billion” for his next project too. Does anyone find it funny that Rob is afraid of heights and Kristen isn’t? Kind of like the reverse for their roles.
Another interview here (the introduction is pretty long):
I wonder if he can truly juggle.
Joe DeShano from MTV has published his own list of Top 10 movies, and Twilight is number 4:
4. “Twilight”: I find myself kind of surprised that “Twilight” is in my top 10. And what’s it doing at #4? Well, I remember a movie back in 1989 that got fans really excited… That was Tim Burton’s “Batman.”… This movie is that for the younger, female generation. What’s better is that it isn’t necessarily some sappy love story. There’s action and vampires and, yeah, a love interest, but there are also subplots and interwoven texture, which are rare to the vampire genre… I look forward to the sequel.
It’s SizzlingPopcorn.com’s turn to do the whole movies/actors voting thing, and they have it right here. Yes, of course Twilight is in it or else it would be featured right here on this entry. Just vote wisely, once again.
Similarly, on Pixcetera’s own list of Breakout Stars of 2008, Kristen is #7 on the list and Rob is just after her. Mind you, to get to their pictures, you’ll have to pass other tween sensations. Just to warn you.
Just Jared has new photos of Rob in his new crop upon arrival at the Heathrow airport in London. Now that there’s clearer photos, I think his new haircut is pretty cute!
“I am in a band at the moment called Bad Girls. The band belongs to my first girlfriend’s current boyfriend… I don’t know where that’s going to go.”
Did you see the bolded sentence?
Celebrity Fix wants to ask Rob’s new hairdo is hot or not – vote for it.
BBC has this “Celebrity Badges” segment, they have Rob’s and Kristen’s badges too. They’re somewhere towards the bottom. If I could, I would print them out and make them into badges. PS: Anyone else finds that Rob’s drawing looks like… a foetus? Comment, and try not to have any Breaking Dawn spoilers okay guys?
Something funny from E! Online: On Sunday, Celebrity Addictionary’s word of the day was Pattronize.
It’s a verb that means “to humor one’s Twilight-obsessed friends” who are all gaga over grungy-hunk, sensitive-vampire-dude Robert Pattinson.
THE MAKING OF TWILIGHT will be on CHANNEL 5 tonight at 7:30 P.M.! Don’t miss it!
