Bella and Edward Kissing: Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart in Dark TWILIGHT Romance

Edward and Bella kissing, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Eclipse

Edward and Bella kissing. That's Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart in the by now famous The Twilight Saga: Eclipse meadow scene. Directed by David Slade, best known for Hard Candy, Eclipse is supposed to be a darker, more action-filled installment in the Twilight franchise.

Even so, I believe it's the meadow scene that most stands out in the teaser trailer. It's beautifully shot, incredibly romantic, and at the same time profoundly sad. Even in the brightest of sunlights, there can be that "darkness" that envelop two people (or a person and a vampire) who share an "impossible" love. It's that sort of "darkness" that I'm hoping to find in Eclipse.

I'm looking forward to the final, official Eclipse trailer to be shown on Oprah next Friday. (I'll have my DVR ready.) I'm curious to see if Summit will emphasize action over romance so as to attract a larger fan base – or rather, non-fan base – to theaters. But no matter how many fight scenes are to be found in Eclipse, or how many times Taylor Lautner parades around shirtless, I'm quite sure it's the meadow scene that is going to stay with me.

Written by Melissa Rosenberg from Stephenie Meyer's novel, Eclipse opens on June 30. Meyer's novels, as mentioned elsewhere on this site, are #5 among the "most challenged" books of 2009 – books that some would like to have removed from libraries.

Also in the Eclipse cast are Dakota Fanning, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jackson Rathbone, Billy Burke, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed, Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Anna Kendrick, Catalina Sandino Moreno, and Ashley Greene.

Javier Aguirresarobe provided the great-looking cinematography. Music by Howard Shore.
