Eclipse' Screened For 'Oprah' Audience: A Roundup Of Reviews And Reactions!

In the midst of the confusion yesterday where we tried to figure out what exactly was going on with the "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" world premiere, some very, very, very lucky "Oprah" guests we invited quietly to a little premiere of their own. Oprah taped her "Eclipse" show — set to air next May 13 — today, and to prepare her guests to ask topical questions to Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Dakota Fanning, she showed them an early cut of "Eclipse."

Yes, you read that right. Some "Twilight" fans have already seen "Eclipse," and they probably aren't you. But Twi-hards aren't the greedy type, and quickly took to Twitter to share their wealth of information with the world. In between the "OME!!"s and drooling, we were able to pick out some pretty interesting information that of course we are going to share with you.
There had been some concern after the final "Eclipse" trailer premiered that this third installment in the "Twilight Saga" would sacrifice the love story for the action (apparently everyone forgot the first trailer, which showed us otherwise). The unanimous response was that the love story is definitely still there, and it is very hot and heavy. This means, yes, the leg hitch, the tent scene and Bella and Jacob's kiss all make the final cut, and, as one Twitter user claimed, were enough to "get her turned on." And yes, the scene where Bella punches Jacob is also included, though we never doubted that it wouldn't be in the film.

But that doesn't mean that the action wasn't great either. This was an early cut of the film so some of the animation was still a bit off, but everyone seemed to think that it was the best action of the series. The fact Jasper was featured quickly but clearly in the second trailer's fight scene tipped us off to the fact that he and Alice were going to be pretty prominent in the action sequences, but apparently they get a lot more face time throughout the entire film, and actually get a chance to really interact with each other. Unfortunately, Jackson Rathbone's wig is supposed to be pretty bad, but Kristen's is better since the first trailer.

Which brings us to some other exciting news: everyone loved Jasper and Rosalie's flashbacks. We already knew that Jasper would be seen horse back in Civil War regalia, but apparently this was news to other people. As far as Rosalie's flashback goes, we read that her entire conversation with Bella lasts about five minutes, but the actual flashback is only about two minutes. This is kind of a let-down, but if a picture is worth a thousand words we're guessing David Slade was able to do a lot with those two minutes.

It's been a bit of a trend that fans keep labeling the newest director in each "Twilight" film as being better than all the previous ones (sorry, Catherine Hardwicke). Unsurprisingly, there were many claims that David Slade did a great job with "Eclipse" and that he's the best director yet, which is exactly what Chris Weitz predicted back when everyone was rallying around him after "New Moon." This also is allegedly the funniest of all the "Twilight" films so far, so if David can top "Face Punch," we're going to be really impressed.

Breaking Dawn Gets Release Date

A Summit Entertainment spokesperson has confirmed to HitFix that "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" will open nationwide on Nov. 18, 2011. It's still officially unknown if "Dawn" will be broken up into one or, as rumored, two films. Stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are all expected to return.

Directed by Oscar-winner Bill Condon, the fourth book in Stephenie Meyer's popular series chronicles Bella's most advanced initiation into the vampire world to date, but is also seen by many as the most difficult to adapt of all the best-selling novels. Melissa Rosenberg, who adapted the first two novels, would continue in that role for "Dawn."

The third movie in the series, "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," will debut in theaters on June 30 nationwide and in IMAX.

Fans were treated to an advanced screening of Eclipse (a rough cut of the movie) in Chicago today and will be in the audience of The Oprah Show tomorrow with Rob, Kristen, Dakota and Taylor. The show will air on May 13th.

Apparently The Twilight Saga will no longer call Vancouver home when shooting begins on the fourth installment Breaking Dawn, to be directed by Dreamgirls’ Bill Condon. According to unnamed sources (I feel so cool saying that, like I’m a spy or something instead of just a dork with a laptop) the next Twilight film just couldn’t say no to the financial benefits of moving production from Vancity and the Pacific Province to the Pelican State (it was a Big Easy decision… ah, that’s why I’m not a spy and instead just a huge dork).

Breaking Dawn and it’s ever-so popular cast (Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner) join a long list of upcoming films that have called Louisiana their home during production including…(long list of films/tv snipped)
