Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart share a quality moment in a gorgeously sunlit meadow in David Slade's The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. The photo above is very similar to the very first one Summit released several weeks ago. There's also a third image set in the same green field.
I believe that's the moment when Robert Pattinson's Edward tells Kristen Stewart's Bella: “Isabella Swan, I promise to love you every moment forever.” Only a complete fool would want anything else out of life – whether finite or everlasting.
Javier Aguirresarobe, among whose credits are the Viggo Mortensen vehicle The Road, Woody Allen's Vicky Cristina Barcelona, and Milos Forman's Goya's Ghosts, was responsible for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse's lush cinematography. Aguirresarobe also shot The Twilight Saga: New Moon. (Elliot Davis was the original Twilight's cinematographer.)
The images found in Eclipse, as seen in photos online and in the film's trailer, look incredibly beautiful. Could that mean an Oscar nomination for Aguirresarobe in 2011? Considering the outstanding quality of his previous work, that would be some well-deserved recognition.
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse opens on June 30. Melissa Rosenberg once again wrote the screenplay adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's novel.

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart share a romantic interlude in the upcoming The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. The picture above is sort of like a sequel to the previous two photos Summit released of Pattinson's Edward Cullen and Stewart's Bella Swan hanging out in the fields of love & romance.
Javier Aguirresarobe shot Eclipse (and The Twilight Saga: New Moon). It's no wonder the scene looks so gorgeous, as Aguirresarobe is an excellent cinematographer.
Kristen Stewart, I should add, is on a roll. And I don't mean rolling with Robert Pattinson and getting all covered with flower petals and grass.
Floria Sigismondi's The Runaways, in which Stewart co-stars with fellow Twilight player Dakota Fanning, has expanded to 204 theaters. Expansions generally means more money overall, but a markedly lower per-screen averages. In the case of The Runaways, however, it meant both more cash (a 182 percent jump) for distributor Apparition and a surprisingly higher per-screen average (close to up 20 percent). That's really good news for Kristen Stewart (and her fans) even if the expansion wasn't nearly as wide as initially planned.
Also, Kristen Stewart was one of the worldwide trending topics on Twitter a couple of days ago thanks to her 20th birthday.
Robert Pattinson was trending too, with some announcing that he'd been handpicked by Courtney Love to play Kurt Cobain in a planned biopic of the late Nirvana performer, while others were announcing that the casting reports were untrue.

Eclipse will have its world premiere at Grauman's Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Blvd. on June 24, 2010. The announcement – or at least one of them – was made via TheLAScene's Twitter account about ten days ago:
“BREAKING NEWS! We have confirmation from Hollywood CofC that ECLIPSE movie premiere will be at GRAUMAN'S CHINESE THEATER 6/24/10!!
On June 24-25, Hollywood Blvd between Highland Ave. & Orange Dr will be closed, specifically for @Twilight Saga: #Eclipse premiere.”
CofC is the local Chamber of Commerce. The Chinese Theatre is right next to where the Oscars are held each year. They've been hosting Hollywood premieres since the late 1920s.
If you're a Twilight, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, director David Slade, author Stephenie Meyer, Edward Cullen, Bella Swan, Jacob Black, vampire, werewolf, etc. etc. fan, follower, or enthusiast – or if you're just curious to see what the fuss is all about – make sure to get there early.
Ah, a partial lunar eclipse will take place on June 26, the first of two lunar eclipses in 2010. It'll be visible in parts of Asia, Australia, and North and South America.

Above are The Twilight Saga stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson in bed in David Slade's upcoming Eclipse, the third installment in the Twilight movie series. This picture of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen lying together is quite a bit more intense than the others we've seen so far. Well, maybe not that intense. Bella looks pretty well covered up, while Edward has his T-shirt on.
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse: More male-oriented?
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is supposed to be a darker, more complex take on the Bella-Edward-Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) story. There are weird deaths in Seattle, while the mean-spirited vampire Victoria (Bryce Dallas Howard, replacing Rachelle Lefevre) is out to get Bella, who, for her part, must decide between the vampire Edward and the shapeshifting werewolf Jacob. Either way, war may break out between vampires and werewolves, and/or between good vampires and bad vampires. Not to mention the fact that the fearsome Volturi Clan may be after the kindhearted Cullen Clan as well.
Best known for Hard Candy and 30 Days of Night, David Slade is supposed to have brought lots of action to The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, as Summit Entertainment wants more guys in theaters. The Eclipse screenwriter was Twilight / New Moon's Melissa Rosenberg, once again adapting Stephenie Meyer's novel.
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse cast
Also in the Twilight Saga: Eclipse cast: Xavier Samuel, Peter Facinelli, Billy Burke, Elizabeth Reaser, Nikki Reed, Jackson Rathbone, Kellan Lutz, Ashley Greene, Dakota Fanning, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Daniel Cudmore, Cameron Bright, Booboo Stewart, Charlie Bewley, Michael Welch, Anna Kendrick, Christian Serratos, Julia Jones, Alex Meraz, and Sarah Clarke. Eclipse opens on June 30.
