Twilight Cars Edward’s Silver Volvo C30, the car the Twilight movie made famous. It can often be difficult to disguise just how different you are inside from everyone else around you. No matter which clothes you choose to wear, how you decide to style your hair or what kinds of activities you participate in, there are often things about you that give you away to others. It might be the way you walk, the way you talk or even just a feeling that other people have when they are around you.

You’ve probably heard all about the H1N1 flu virus (aka “Swine Flu”) in the news lately. Back in 1918, the H1N1 had another name … the Spanish Influenza. That’s right — the very same illness Edward Cullen was dying of when Carlisle found him and turned him into a vampire.
The Spanish Influenza outbreak was a global outbreak — from 1918 to 1920. It killed as many as 100,000,000 people worldwide.

Examiner discusses New Moon castings – Now that New Moon has Michael Sheen and Dakota, who’s next?:
Summit Entertainment has been surprising Twilight fans left and right lately with its relatively constant cast-updates of late for The Twilight Saga: New Moon. Though no official word has been given yet, we feel sure that Easter Sunday’s news that Michael Sheen will portray the Volturi Aro is as reliable as were the reports that Dakota Fanning would be joining the cast as little (but powerful) Jane.
Entertainment Weekly asks – Does the Michael Sheen ‘New Moon’ Casting win you over (or back)?:
New Moon director Chris Weitz’s “aggressive” pursuit of actor Michael Sheen — best known for playing Tony Blair and David Frost in the Oscar-nominated films The Queen and Frost/Nixon, and the Lycan (or werewolf) Lucian in teh Underworld films — is a serious hit with fans. Casting him as Aro, leader of the Volturi, a coven of ancient vampires who police (and kill) those who threaten to reveal the secret of the immortals’ existence, shows that Weitz knows what interesting characters he’s got to work with. And also, of course, that Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke got seriously screwed on her budget.
Costume design in films are important and it should be set correctly for each certain character. Can New Moon’s fashions prove as popular as Twilight? – by Boxwish.
Sam Bradley on New Moon Soundtrack:
As for the rest of us? Well, I asked Sam if he and Robert Pattinson were up to anything together in Vancouver…and he said that “yeah, we’ve written a really good song.”
I asked him whether he might be submitting his work for the The Twilight Saga: New Moon Soundtrack, and Sam says that while he “could” submit something for consideration, he doesn’t “have anything to submit just yet because if [he] was to submit anything it would need to be at a further level than where it’s at right now.” Only time will tell, Twilight fans.

MTV with Vampire Showdown: James Marsters on Buffy’s Spike VS Twilight’s Edward:
But when it comes to showdown, Marsters had to admit that it’s going to be a pretty close fight.
“Hmmm..,” preceded a long pause as he seemed to really consider the situation in detail, “Edward seems to be a character who’s good at fighting but is trying to find the other areas of experience. Whereas Spike was addicted to fighting. That’s how he defined himself. I would think that Spike has a little more experience. He probably has a few fights up his belt.”

Celebuzz has an article – For Pals Sam Bradley & Robert Pattinson: The Laughter Continues in Vancouver.
“Every time I made a mistake, I kept looking over,” Bradley tells Celebuzz. “At one point I walked off-stage and just started laughing.” Bradley was playing the cover of “Man’s World” by James Brown, ran into some problems and left the stage to pick up his folder. He looked up at Pattinson hanging out in the stage wings, out-of-sight. “I just started laughing,” says Bradley. “And he was just smiling back.”

1. I heard that you follow all the online gossip about yourself?I read that and thought it was such bullshit. I was like, “God, I sound like such a loser!”
2. So it’s not true?
Well, I do sometimes. I used to a lot more before and then … I only look at the negative stuff. I just want to know whoever’s saying negative stuff, and I just want to remember their names. I write it all down in my black book. [Laughs]
From Model to Meatworker, Stuffs.co.nz has an article on Nina Schubert, Rob’s old girlfriend.
She has lived most of her life in London. She went to school there with Robert Pattinson, who lived around the corner and they ended up at the same drama school.
“Rob is still a really good friend of mine. He’s hopefully going to come here, if he can get a break from working. I gave him my paintings when we lived together in London. Now he’s commissioned me to paint one for him and I’m working on it.
“I do really big abstract canvases, influenced by geometric patterns like chessboards and latticework, mainly black and white. I’m interested in optical illusions.”

We’ve heard news that Lionsgate might buy Summit Entertainment? Check out these two articles by The Wrap and /film respectively:
Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment are in talks to merge their two companies, according to two people familiar with the negotiations.
The plan, if the deal goes through, is for Lionsgate to buy Summit’s library of six films and the rights to the “Twilight” franchise. Early talks last year involved the merger of only the domestic divisions, under the terms of the reported deal. Source.
According to the report, Lionsgate would pay Summit an amount worth nearly two years of operation costs, in exchange for the rights to Summit’s library of six films, a cable distribution deal through Showtime, and most importantly, the rights to the Twilight franchise. Source.

Happy CNY to our readers who are celebrating this festive season! Anyway, apologies if these batch of news seems a few days old or something. Here’s the update:
Twilight Saga: Offiicial Guide – According to Barnes & Noble, the release date for the Official Guide is on 30th September 2009.
Twilight DVD – So far, I don’t think Singapore has been given a date yet for the release of the Twilight DVD. I did researched on this yesterday but couldn’t find anything relevant. However, the Aussies might be getting theirs on 22nd April 2009 , the Germans on 17th June 2009 , South Africans will be able to get their DVD on 21st-23rd March 2009 and those living in UK will be able to get the DVD on 6th April 2009.
Fangoriaonline.com has details on the Twilight DVD and the new Rob’s Pattinson book.
”My friend Rob, for that whole Twilight nonsense, the studio was having them take all these classes,” the 22-year-old actress tells Nylon magazine in its February issue. “It was the most frustrating thing in the world because they want you to speak like someone else, not yourself. It’s so silly. And I would be frustrated, too.”
Sam Bradley (Rob’s close friend) tells us that Rob is too busy to use a computer and that he doesn’t have a Myspace or Facebook on Robert Pattinson’s internet ban.
Speaking of Rob, Perez Hilton has a new picture of Rob with a lucky fan at a random pub.

Okay all, here’s another interview of Sam Bradley done by Portrait Magazine. And FYI, Sam watched Twilight thrice!
You wrote ‘Never Think’, on the Twilight soundtrack, with Robert Pattinson – and then you apparently went in completely different directions when recording it. How did that happen – is there an original version?
The original version is just sort of bits and pieces of when we were writing it. So, no, there’s no real original version. What it is, is we wrote a song… I came back to Canada, and kind of switched it up a little bit for myself. Melodically, what we originally wrote is probably closer to my version. But Rob, when he plays music, he’s really in touch with what he’s doing, so he plays a song differently every time. Any song, it’ll never sound the same. It’s really cool, he’s really in the moment. So the recording of Never Think that he did will never sound the same again, which is kind of interesting. Lyrically, though, it’s similar.
It’s funny, because you can never understand what he’s singing. So it’s really interesting to listen to your version and say, “Oh, that’s what he’s saying!”
I don’t think anyone has guessed the lyrics right yet. I’ve been on YouTube, and I’ve been reading what people think are the lyrics. Even the first line, I don’t think I’ve read the right first line yet. I mean, he sings it like that because that’s how it comes out. I personally love it. I mean, I know what he’s saying. There’s a feeling behind it, like he’s singing it to that person that he’s talking to.
Exactly! I was always trying hard to figure out the lyrics to Rob’s songs. Everytime i go check out in the internet, there will be different variations of lyrics. Hehs. But, Rob’s songs are pure love. You people should really listen to his other songs beside ‘Never Think’ and ‘Let Me Sign’ :D
Still on Rob, he mentioned that he’s never been in love? I know you want to continue reading the article – Go here to find out more!
And congrats to Rob for being #2 in Popstar’s Celebrity Love Awards 2008! Uh, The Jonas Brothers claimed the throne sadly. And Stephenie Meyer came in at #4! Other Twilight cast that made it into the list includes Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Ashley Greene, Cam Gigandet and Kellan Lutz.

And i’m not too sure how true this is, but Twilight DVD will be released on April 30th 2009? However, some are saying that it will be on Valentine’s Day. Well, these are all rumours. And for us, we’ll be probably get it much later than the release date in US.
