Dakota Fanning, the Volturi clan, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

In The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Dakota Fanning, one of the stars of War of the Worlds, Hounddog, and The Runaways, plays Jane, a member of the creepy Volturi clan, an ancient vampire family akin to royalty among the blood-thirsty undead. Jane and her companions are out to get Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), who have been misbehaving.

If you saw those four coming your way, you’d run for your life. Or perhaps you’d just drop dead. Personally, I’d tell them to move aside so I could admire the beautifully moody surroundings found in this screen grab.

The more I see of Eclipse, the more I hope that Javier Aguirresarobe will get an Academy Award nomination and an American Society of Cinematographers nod for his work on the film.

Back to Fanning/Jane: The creepy girl with the burgundy/reddish eyes is there to remind Edward and Bella that the Volturi are neither very tolerant nor very patient. No second chances for the star-crossed couple. As if they needed more trouble.

Directed by David Slade from a screenplay by Melissa Rosenberg, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse opens in the US on June 30.
