‘Eclipse’: Love is eternally having to say …
“Isabella Swan, I promise to love you every moment forever.” That’s Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) telling said Swan (Kristen Stewart) what most people anywhere would like to hear – and believe – at least once in their lifetime.
Perhaps that’s why the Twilight Saga novels and movies have been so incredibly popular. The new Eclipse trailer has already been viewed nearly one million times on YouTube ever since its release … a few hours ago (March 11). The teaser trailer, released several hours earlier, has been viewed nearly 3.5 million times.
Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson in ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.’
I’m not so sure that’s all teen girl power. In addition to female adults, there are lots of closeted male romantics out there. They wouldn’t be caught dead watching on their own any of the The Twilight Saga movies on the big screen, but they could subtly ensure that a female friend or girlfriend or wife or daughter or aunt invite them to a screening.
Else, if the fates work against such heart-popping opportunity, they’ll surreptitiously rent the movie via some online service or other. Or they’ll get a DVD delivered by mail.
The synopsis below is from the The Twilight Saga: Eclipse YouTube page:
In The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger as Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge.
In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between Edward and Jacob – knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella is confronted with the most important decision of her life.
I hope that “important decision” doesn’t refer to what to wear on prom night.

Kristen Stewart movie ‘Welcome to the Rileys’ finds domestic distributor
In other Kristen Stewart news, Welcome to the Rileys has been picked up for distribution in the United States, Mike Fleming reports at Deadline.com.
Written by Ken Hixon, directed by Jake Scott, and co-starring The Sopranos’ James Gandolfini and Best Actress Academy Award nominee Melissa Leo (Frozen River, 2008), Welcome to the Rileys was shown at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, where the performances were received warmly – the film itself less so.
Expletives galore to shock Bella Swan fans
Kristen Stewart, in particular, caused a sensation of sorts because in Welcome to the Rileys the sweet, lovestruck Bella Swan of the Twilight movies plays the role of a pole dancer-cum-sex worker who spits out one hair-raising expletive after another.
With no distributor in sight at Sundance, Stewart’s fans decided to take matters into their own hands by bombarding potential Welcome to the Rileys buyers with e-mails requesting the film’s release (see further below).
Whether or not that was a deciding factor is unclear, but Apparition and Sony Worldwide have acquired Scott’s low-budget drama for a reported seven figures. A fall 2010 release is planned.
In Welcome to the Rileys, James Gandolfini plays a middle-aged man whose teenage daughter has died. While on a business trip in New Orleans, he meets a young, foul-mouthed pole dancer (that’s Kristen Stewart) whom he decides to rescue from a fate worse than Hurricane Katrina. Melissa Leo is Gandolfini’s bereaved wife.
After calling the film “a fascinatingly uneven movie,” Film School Rejects‘ Neil Miller adds:
Kristen Stewart is at her bravest. … Stewart plays through all of these layers incredibly well. She’s sexy, tortured and frightened. At some points, all at once. This isn’t her character from Twilight. It is a far more mature role, and one that is a polar opposite to Bella.
Roger Ebert, for his part, calls Welcome to the Rileys “an unlikely melodrama,” adding that “Gandolfini, Stewart and Leo inhabit it with persuasive performances.”
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse trailer: Summit Entertainment.
Kristen Stewart Welcome to the Rileys image: Argonaut / Scott Free.
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which stars idols Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner, and was directed by David Slade, has lost a song by the British band Muse, whose music had been used in the two previous installments of the series, Twilight and The Twilight Saga: New Moon.
According to various reports, drummer Dominic Howard didn’t blame Twilight Saga novelist Stephenie Meyer, explaining, “It’s nothing to do with Stephenie; she’s totally cool. It’s the people in the movie business, completely outside of the writers and the creative types; the non-creative types I suppose are the people who are quite hard to deal with in Hollywood, so it didn’t work out.” The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which is scheduled to hit theaters June 30, is being distributed by Summit Entertainment.
Howard adds, “We sure will [release it]. I mean, it was great. We worked on it in Australia, we were ready to record, we were going to do some recording with [producer] Butch Vig, so we might still do it. I’m sure the song will definitely come to life for real at some point, but I think for this film it’s not going to happen.”
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse should have its official trailer debut in time for Robert Pattinson’s new vehicle Remember Me, which opens March 12. However, last-minute changes are taking place in the Twilight Saga: Eclipse saga. Besides dropping the song by the British band Muse from the film’s soundtrack, that also includes replacing editor Art Jones with Nancy Richardson.
According to EW.com, Nancy Richardson, who edited Catherine Hardwicke’s original Twilight film, was brought on board because Summit Entertainment said director David Slade’s material “needed a stronger edit.” EW adds that “the studio has more confidence in Richardson, who they say understands the emotion of the characters and is an ace at balancing action with the other elements of the film.” Jones had previously worked with Slade in 30 Days of Night and Hard Candy.
Also in regard to this issue, Dread Central reported that “David Slade was excitedly tweeting about the progress of his editing process, including this statement: ‘Cutting like crazy, the film is getting closer working through the weekends again, adding more EDWARD!'”
But “maybe he still wasn’t adding enough Edward.”
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is scheduled to open June 30.
Robert Pattinson stars in “The Remasculation of the American Man,” a photographic essay published by Details magazine in celebration of its 10th anniversary. Even ignoring the fact that Pattinson is actually British, I couldn’t quite figure out how a statement such as “I really hate vaginas. I’m allergic to vaginas” would sound very “remasculating.” In the Details interview Pattinson also says that “the only emotional connection of relevance [I have] is with my dog. My relationship with my dog, it’s ridiculous.” Just as ridiculous, apparently, are rumors about his romancing fellow Twilight Saga star Kristen Stewart, though I should add that the dog-relationship quote was taken from a comment about one of Pattinson’s uncles.
The Details interview, written by screenwriter Jenny Lumet (of Rachel Getting Married, and daughter of Sidney Lumet), is a raunchily enjoyable and at times illuminating read, as Pattinson seems to possess an offbeat, self-deprecating sense of humor. And it’s certainly not to be taken all that seriously. (Perhaps all that beer drunk during the interview is to blame.) Sample quote: “I find it really funny – if I got shot, I would literally be in hysterics. I would be like, ‘Are you serious? Jesus Christ, get Zac Efron! He’s got more social relevance than I do.'”
Another curious quote refers to a beloved Disney cartoon that I hate. While discussing disfiguring, bizarre illnesses, Lumet explain, “We come up with a blockbuster hit movie, entitled Candiru Infestation, about a tiny fish that swims up your urethra and into your urinary tract and lodges in your cock with backward-facing umbrella spikes it shoots from its spine.”
“’Fucking brilliant! It could be like Finding Nemo!’ says Rob. ‘And the little candiru is lost in the balls! Think of the soundtrack!'”
“Finding Candiru” aside, Norman Jean Roy’s sensual, provocative photos are stunning. In one, Pattinson is shot from above while lying on a green-tiled bathroom floor next to a naked blonde model in a half-filled bathtub, in another he’s having his chest caressed by a woman in her undergarments, and in yet another he’s sitting with his head between the long legs of a female model while another bare-buttocked model holds his hand. Prudes will be appalled – and that’s always a good thing.
The Details photo shoot will hit newsstands on Feb. 23, around the time Remember Me, starring Pattinson, directed by Allen Coulter and written by Will Fetters (with some rewriting provided by interviewer Lumet), opens in the United States and several other countries.
You can read the Robert Pattinson interview & commentary here. Also at Details, you can check out an unreadable interview about Channing Tatum’s scorched penis (what the…?) and another on the United States’ first legal male prostitute. (I thought it was going to be about some new law that allows politicians to whore around legally, but no, it’s about an actual sex worker in Nevada.)
May 2016 update: Details is gone (GQ has absorbed it) and the Robert Pattinson and Channing Tatum interviews seem to be no longer available online.

More on Robert Pattinson
A new trailer for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse will play with Remember Me, scheduled to open March 12. Both films are Summit Entertainment productions starring Robert Pattinson. Directed by David Slade, and also starring Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse will be released on June 30, 2010. Remember Me was directed by Allen Coulter and features Pierce Brosnan, Emilie de Ravin, and Chris Cooper.
In the third installment of the Twilight Saga franchise, the human Bella (Stewart) will once again be torn between the vampire Edward (Pattinson) and the werewolf Jacob (Lautner), all the while trying to come to terms with a whole bunch of people showing up dead all over town. Also in the Eclipse cast: Bryce Dallas Howard (replacing Rachelle Lefevre), Academy Award nominee Anna Kendrick, Dakota Fanning, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Charlie Bewley, Billy Burke, Ashley Greene, Jackson Rathbone, and Nikki Reed.
Remember Me is a psychological romantic/family drama in which a rebellious young man (Pattinson) finds himself at odds with his father (Brosnan), while falling for a free-spirited young woman (de Ravin) and getting into trouble with her father (Cooper).
Robert Pattinson Details post first published by André Soares.
That The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn will apparently be two movies instead of one should come as no surprise. Successful franchises are always stretched out as much as possible; see George Lucas’ Star Wars with all its sequels and prequels and sequels of prequels and the like. Also, this year we’ll see Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 to be followed in 2011 by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1I.
That’s why Stephenie Meyer’s four-book Twilight series will become a five-movie Twilight series starring early 21st-century idols Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner. The two-part Breaking Dawn installment, to be adapted by Twilight Saga screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg, will reportedly be filmed back-to-back in the fall. It will quite possibly feature oddities found in Meyer’s 756-page novel, including teen pregnancy, abortion, interspecies love & sex, and adult-werewolf love for totally weird newborn half-vampire child. How those plot points will be presented is another matter altogether. (When asked what she thought about the Twilight series going 3D, Stewart said the idea sounds “scary and very exciting. … It’d be out there.”)
According to Vanity Fair, Harry Potter‘s Daniel Radcliffe is currently no. 6 among Hollywood’s biggest moneymakers; don’t be too surprised if Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner hit the top 10 or 15 list when 2010 income figures are tallied. (According to Deadline Hollywood, Lautner will be paid $7.5 million for Stretch Armstrong.)
Kristen Stewart will make 2010 her Movie Year. The Yellow Handkerchief, The Runaways, and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, in which she’s the human side of the human, vampire (Robert Pattinson) and werewolf (Taylor Lautner) triangle, are three of her films scheduled to open this year. Welcome to the Rileys, in which she plays a pole dancer/sex worker, may be the fourth. And in the fall Stewart will be filming the high-profile The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, reportedly to be released in two parts.
If that weren’t all, the 19-year-old actress is a 2010 Orange Rising Star BAFTA nominee (the BAFTA winners will be announced Sunday) and will reportedly be a presenter – along with Taylor Lautner – at the 2010 Academy Awards on March 7.
In The Yellow Handkerchief, which was actually made about two years ago, Stewart plays opposite Academy Award winner William Hurt (above) of Kiss of the Spider Woman and Broadcast News, Maria Bello of A History of Violence, and Eddie Redmayne. Directed by Udayan Prasad, best known for the 1997 British drama My Son the Fanatic, The Yellow Handkerchief was written by Erin Dignam from a story by Pete Hamill.
The romantic drama was produced by Arthur Cohn, the producer of The Chorus and Central Station, and of the Oscar winners The Garden of the Finzi-Continis and Black and White in Color.
The Yellow Handkerchief opens on Feb 26.

The Twilight Saga star Robert Pattinson and two-time Academy Award winner Sean Penn may be joining Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon in a Fox 2000 film adaptation of Sara Gruen’s bestselling novel Water for Elephants, according to Variety.
Francis Lawrence, best known for the Will Smith vehicle I Am Legend, will direct, while the Oscar-nominated Richard LaGravenese (for The Fisher King) will adapt the Depression-era story about a veterinary student (probably Pattinson) who, left penniless following the death of his parents, joins a traveling circus after dropping out of school. Once there, the student befriends the abused animals.
Witherspoon will play the (elephant?) rider Marlena, the wife of a less-than-friendly – or rather, a vicious, brutal, psychotic animal trainer (probably Penn). Contracts haven’t been finalized, yet, for either Pattinson or Penn. Production on Water for Elephants is expected to begin in June.
Among other announced Pattinson projects or upcoming releases are Remember Me, which will be out in a few weeks; The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which comes out in early summer; and Bel Ami, which is currently in the works.
Twilight fans have been inundating with e-mails potential Welcome to the Rileys buyers, begging them to get the rights to the Kristen Stewart vehicle in which the Twilight and The Twilight Saga: New Moon star plays a pole dancer/sex worker. Directed by Jake Scott and written by Ken Hixon, the drama also stars The Sopranos’ James Gandolfini as the young woman’s savior.
“PLEASE!! you are all amazing,” reads a Welcome2Rileys tweet sent a few hours ago, “but please stop emailing the distributors. we got the message loud and clear. please please stop[.]”
That was followed by “they can’t answer our emails because they r trying to get through all of your emails. I love you all. please stop the attack[.]”
And then: “you guys are animals!!!!!! those poor people!!! I know what they are going through when you all started emailing me… powerful[.]”
The e-mail addresses for The Weinstein Co. and Sony Pictures Classics representatives were made available at the Welcome to the Rileys IMDb forum.
Kristen Stewart has received good notices for her performance in Welcome to the Rileys, and for her portrayal of ’70s rocker Joan Jett in Floria Sigismondi’s The Runaways, co-starring Dakota Fanning, which was also screened at Sundance. The Runaways will open on March 19, a little over two weeks after Robert Pattinson’s solo starring vehicle Remember Me.

I think it was a cool trailer. I don’t want them showing me the entire movie like they did on new moon And is important that they show us that the romance wont be lost Any way we all know that we are gonna see a lot more clips on the way to June h i agree new moon was a step up from twilight eclipse is a step up from new moon eclipse was my fave it looks amazing!!!
Glad they are adding more Edward. There can never be too much of that captivating vampire/Robert Pattinson.
They have a new editor? Does it mean the trailer will look different too?
I was wondering when is Eclips going to come out?

Newest issue of Elle Korea Kristen Stewart Special now available
HAHA! I bet he’s thinkin,”YAY!!! BOOBIES!!!!”
And one more thing… Stephanie Meyer IS a complete genius! ;D
LOL, I totally agree with Cheryl aswell… When New Moon came out I went to see it twice in two days :). I REALLY CAN’T WAIT FOR ECLIPSE!!! It’s gunna b awesome!! ;D
Sure..actually I was gonna suggest u the same site..search for one ‘Haripriya Deepa’ there(my profile picture is one cute picture of Rob and Kristen.I think there is only one Haripriya Deepa in facebook..so It wont b very diffficult to find me…!!
Hi Priya Not sure of the most discrete way to give you my email address. Facebook?
The honour is mine…wow..
I once accidently deleted my altfg folder aswell..and it took me hours to find this blog again..so i toally understand…and i am so happy that u did that…thank u..and I would still lov to b ur frnd..and I’m warning U-I am a seventeen year old,very talkative girl…if u r ready to suffer my endless speeches,v can b frnds(U know..My mom is in her 40s aswell..so I feel that kind of affection to u )..
Sorry I haven’t gotten back to you before now - I deleted my ALTFG folder by accident and had to hunt through a mile of Twilight blogs to find your name again! If you would still like to be friends I would be honoured. Must warn you though - I am a woman in my 40’s with three adult children aged between 20 - 23 who is still a die hard idealistic romantic at heart! Probably why the Twilight Saga appeals to me so much. I cannot understand Bella having room in her heart to love anyone but Edward!
Rob’s hair looks cool but e forewarned though, it might not look as cool on you as it does on Rob.
Especially if you are a woman.
I agree with the above comments. Here I am a greatgrandmother and can’t wait for another of robert pattinsons movies. Went to see remember me 10 or 12 times I lost count. went to new moon 7 or 8 times. now I have twilight and new moon dvd and can watch them all the time. Can’t wait for remember me dvd to come out on the 22,I think. then eclipes to come to the theater. Will have a little bit of trouble seeing it as many times though. It is summer and I am a missionary and a bible camp and am in the kitchen feeding kids. probably will be able to get away on saturday afternoons, even though I am very tired by that time. Als have been trying to get tickets to the Oprah show on the 13th interview with robert and the twilight stars. Just found out the date last week and been trying every day, but the window is closed. I will be in chicago area on the week end before to watch my grand children. But can stay for the 13th interview’s the only thing is I think physically I won’t be able to camp out for days ahead of time.
@Lisa 3 that is your opinion which you are entitled to of course. It’s not healthy to hold hate against someone, maybe just try not searching the net or watching Kristens movies that might help!?
There are so many people altering the truth that its not funny! Most of the e-mails came from 17 and below. You can tell by the literacy level of the e-mails. (Yes I’ve seen them.)
I can honestly say I saw this movie at Sundance and Kristen honestly ruined a movie that had an excellent chance.
I can also tell you that I despise Kristen Stewart because of her actions, but her fans and Twi zombies that follow her have made me detest her.I blame the adult fans as much if not more than the younger ones. On other boards for The Runaways her fans did an entire bully and threaten marathon to make people see her movie. This is now a sick obsession which is not helping her get a bigger fanbase and definitely not a saner one.
I completely agree with u Cheryl
I have never seen a series of movies or read a series of books that have impacted me so much. They are just spectacular and Stephenie Meyers is an absolute genius. Summit was outrageously smart to buy this franchise. Great going and I am looking forward to seeing the rest of the movies, owning them on DVD, and watching them over and over again.
I completely agree with c.Lynne. Speaking as a fan of Kristen Stewart from BEFORE her Twilight days, Kristen is a very dynamic and versatile actress that dedicates herself to the character. I just saw The Runaways today, and it she blew me away. I especially enjoyed her in the movie Speak, and am patiently awaiting her future releases.
WOW!!! Very tastefully done photoshoot and as always the pictures of Robert…his swag and his beauty is exhausting I think he could easily be the next very handsome 007…license to kill. Work hard and take a break to recharge. Take Care.
eu sou do brasil e gostaria de falar q kristen e uma atriz maravilhosa q eu estou acompanhando cada passo dela no filme de eclipse.
amo ela de paixao e gostaria de saber se ela esta pensando em casar com o autor robert petterson??
amo muito vc kristen
e.j. choke on it when you eat your words
We all know what brought for distribution means.It means that it be in and out of the theaters in one week and then you will find it on your local walmart video stand for $6.99.It not being picked up at sundance basically says that this movie is no good.Diehards and robsten fans,why don’t you come to reality kristen can’t act.When all those directors say she is hard working and fun to be around(like saying she has a great personality about a unattractinve girl) they were just trying to be nice and that is all they could think of.
I would love them to make it in two movies that would be awsome but I don’t think it should be in 3d that would ruin the movie. But I would love it to be made in to two movies.
I am extremely excited about the upcoming movies, but I don’t know what I think about Breaking Dawn being two movies and definitly not 3D. The books are about the love story and if you put it in 3D you will focus only on the action. We can’t draw attention away from the most important book and the love story.
It would be awsome to see a two part movie of Breaking Dawn. Threr is some such to all the books for them just to be a one part movie. There is alot of detail that was left out in Twilight and in New Moon. I’ve Read the books twice and each time i read them and watch the movie’s i see more an more that was left out. This is very exciting. I think it will be great!!!! Keep up the Great Work Stephanie I love the books!!!!
Yay! Can’t wait to see Remember Me on March 12th.
I have a feeling that this movie will touch our hearts in a way that The Notebook did.
I am going to be there on the opening night. They are having midnight showings! LOL
Hot pics of an even hotter Robert. ;-)
Hot pics. Hotter Robert. ;-)
Really enjoyed this article. He was witty & insightful. Nicely done. He had a nice rapport with the interviewer too which was nice.
Loved the interview and photoshoot. Best read in ages. Good to read an itnerview where the press pack isnt churned out.
I’m trying to think of ways this whole photoshoot and interview could be more awesome and I’ve failed. I’ll leave it to Rob to surprise me next time because this was a damn brilliant read.
To the comment regarding TYK getting sold without any help. We read it, it’s alright. It will be released and not do well. We are not stupid. We read WTTR and fell in love with the script.
It deserves all of the attention it can get.
Had some problems with the internet. Someone else said it. The second one is directed to you.
Nobody has a problem that she did Twilight. They are just speaking about her acting abilities.
>kristen hasn’t done enough films to be judged on her acting<
You said that she's a good actor and that isn't judging someone?
Well,i think that kristen stewart is a great actor and that Beck is right. All those people who don’t like twilight fine we all have our own opinon, but that doesn’t mean you should put bad comments by her name, kristen hasn’t done enough films to be judged on her acting. Does it?
@Odd Man Out - I totally agree with you there, Natalie Portman, Dakota Fanning, Jodie Foster and so many more child actors have achieved some superb performances. I just feel that Kristen gets slated because of Twilight.
@Boss - I don’t see your point exactly please elaborate? also you misquoted me as I didn’t say about Meryl being shy etc..
lets keep this to a good healthy debate and not a hatefest :o)
Maybe you should’ve saved the money you spent on acting school and put it towards perfecting your writing and English skills.
Man you are just jelous(jealous). Where (have) those years of sutding (studying) acting took (taken) YOU? I am with my teen in New York in an acting school and Kristen’s name is highly regarded there. Merilyn (Meryl) S. just mimics Julia Child. She did not create her character. Stand up comedians can do it better. Even my husband. Kristen Stewart is nominated for rising star award in the UK. orange.co.uk/bafta
Check out for yourself.
Wow. I didn’t realize my opinion would sprout such vapid remarks. I’m not even going to dignify those thoughtless, immature comments with a response. I appreciate those of you who kept it professional, and I do admit..comparing Kristen Stewart to Meryl Streep was an extreme. For that, I apologize.
Now that I have my head on straight, I will give you someone else…Natalie Portman. Both started as young stars. I’m sorry but Panic room will NEVER come close to The Professional.
Am I saying that Kristen is a terrible actress? No.
@odd man out
Man you are just jelous. Where those years of sutding acting took YOU? I am with my teen in New York in an acting school and Kristen’s name is highly regarded there. Merilyn S. just mimics Julia Child. She did not create her character. Stand up comedians can do it better. Even my husband. Kristen Stewart is nominated for rising star award in the UK. orange.co.uk/bafta

>I’ve seen her in a few movies and she is totally different in everyone, Speak, AdventureLand, Into the Wild….. all so not “Bella”.<
In all three movies she was a troubled teen. In Welcome to the Rileys oh wonder she's a troubled teen.
>I’ve seen her in a few movies and she is totally different in everyone, Speak, AdventureLand, Into the Wild….. all so not “Bella”. Meryl Streep is extremelly shy and also has difficults to express her fellings in a interview and no one think bad of her<
Aha. She's shy in her interview but not shy in her movies. What does it say? That she's a good actor. Let us compare it with Kristen. Nervous habits in interviews and the same habits in movies.
Odd Man Out - I know you are entitled to your opinion, but how can you compare Kristen to Meryl Streep who is undoubtably a Fantastic and Great Actor but seriously you don’t think Kristen can compare to her expertise and maturity, everyone and I’m not talking about twi fans, tweens or twi-moms when I say this, I mean professionals to the business, Directors, Writers, Producers to list goes on has said of Kristen that she brings alive the character she is portraying, you only have to watch her interview to see how much she cherishes these characters and totally takes on the role. How can you say she can’t act and plays “Bella” in every movie, I’ve seen her in a few movies and she is totally different in everyone, Speak, AdventureLand, Into the Wild….. all so not “Bella”. For a 19 year old I who is still learning and growing I think she portrays her characters extremely well, and I would bet everything I own that one day she will be ranked up with the best of Oscar winners. Stage acting is totally different to screen acting and as your say you’ve been studying it for 20 years, well times change, people change, I’m not a teenager and I wouldn’t want to be in this day and age. You had your say I had mine. On the story posted - I think its safe to say someone will buy this movie, the hype has been incredible and it would be stupid for them not to.
i believe youre not a good actress yourself, because if you are you would be busy with work than spending your time hating on kristen, who is popular and has a line of work ahead of her right now. professional critics and well known credible good actors says she’s good, youre an unknown actress who says she’s not, who would you think i would believe… ding ding ding.. that’s right.
Odd Man Out,
Now for Mrs Stewart be a good actor or not, you can have your opinion but I agree with Sean Penn, Jodie Foster, Melissa Leo, Sandra Bullock, Kate Bosworth, Bruce Dern, Mary Stuart Masterson, David Fincher, the director of Speak, Forest Whitaker, Emile Hirsch, some others, that Kristen Stewart is an actor, a MOVIES ACTOR. She is good, she has something different, she is not there for the fame, she is there for the craft, like Jodie Foster was and certain Dakota Fanning and Abigail Breslin will be. They born this way.
It’s unfair to compare Kristen at 19, with just 10 years of acting with Meryl Streep and Jodie Foster at this moment of their lives, at their ages. To be “a huge monster” like this ladies are, you have to live a life and grow your craft.
“She seems Jodie Foster at that age…” “Look up at this girl, she has future…”
Meryl Streep is extremelly shy and also has difficults to express her fellings in a interview and no one think bad of her and neither she was over exposed for the media in the way that Kristen has been. Kristen is very young and just need some time.
It is difficult that so many people in the bussiness are wrong….
I am sure that Miss Stewart will give us amazing performaces in the years to come.
ps: Sorry for my English but it is not my first language.
Listen to this audio, where Melissa Leo explain what is Method Acting giving as example a scene between she, Kristen Stewart and James Gandolfini in Welcome to the Rileys and you see what I am talking about and that you probably are wrong.
what’s about kristen’s style of acting got to do with us mature fans wanted to see her movies? if that’s your opinion i respect it, but that doesn’t stop me from admiring her talent, dedication and sincerity to her work. she’s only 19 and as she progresses, i’m sure her art and technique of acting will be as much strikingly effective as ever 20 years from now.
Agree completely with Mae. What’s worse is that people who are doing this are saying that they aren’t teenagers. Do you not realize how immature that makes you look?
Too Odd Man someone disagrees with you -> Roger Ebert on Kristen Stewart “I’m discovering an important new actress.
The majority of Kristen fans are not teenagers not that there is anything wrong with that but the Twilight thing just skyrocked her career to new hights. If the campaign has a positive effect than that is wonderful.
Also, to Mae:
We would never have e-mailed the distributors if there wasn’t a reason, and there was. We’ve been hearing from the producer that distributors are worried about the age-range of the fans, and that Kristen’s fans would all be 13 year old Twi-hards. The entire purpose of our e-mailing the distributors was to tell them we are NOT under the age of 17, therefore we would be able to see the film without having to sneak in. We used information directly from the producer to help as we saw fit.
We’d already been asked to Tweet how old we were, but Twitter doesn’t always get the job done. The reason we took it a step further and e-mailed distributors directly was to send a message across that we are a mature audience and would fit the age demographic they need for the film to be worth distributing.
I would also like to point out that we used information anybody could have found on the internet. Those e-mail addresses were not their personal e-mail accounts, they are work e-mail accounts that anybody can find online with a bit of looking.
The only thing that made this work is the power of numbers. There are a lot of people all over the world who want to see this film, and when we gather together, we can get a lot done.
Hmmm……..How old was Meryl when she did Devil Wears Prada and Julie and Julia?
Please, for the love of GOD, will you stop calling us all teenagers and Twilight-fans? Not all of us are, and none of the people I’m aware of who sent an e-mail are under the age of 17. That was the entire point of the campaign, to assure prospective distributors that we are not teenagers and we can get into an R rated film without having to sneak in.
To the professional stage actress, I have acting experience as well. Kristen’s performances are real and honest, and she doesn’t just act out a character, she becomes her. I’ve yet to see a film with her in it that hasn’t moved me. Her film “Speak” is one of the most honest and heart-wrenching performances I’ve seen out of any actress. The understanding it took to take on that role, and at such a young and tender age…it’s truly an incredible thing. Kristen has mannerisms that will come out in the characters she plays, but that doesn’t make her repetitive or one-dimensional. It’s everything else that she brings to the table and how she adapts those mannerisms to the character that work.
To Odd Man Out,
I just have one question. What other movies of Kristen have you seen to have this opinion about her acting ability/
By the way the great movie critic Roger Ebert just said this about Kristen Stewart.
@ebertchicago Saw “Welcome to the Rileys.” Kristen Stewart is a fine actress. Saints preserve her from vampire movies.
“Kristen Stewart here is tougher even than her punk rocker in “The Runaways.” Who knew she had these notes? I’m discovering an important new actress.”
I can go on and add some more praises she has received from her co-workers and critics for this movie and all the other movies she has done so far.
@Odd Man Out
Some user said one time that we see in every movie of hers how Kristen would act if she’s in the same situation. How she would act if her boyfriend is a vampire or how she would act if she becomes a prostitute/stripper.
Some fans of Kristen are really crazy. Even if they aren’t over 17 and wouldn’t get the option to watch it they still send emails to get a distributer for her movie. Fanatic! Even the Yellow Handkerchief was bought without any “help”.
Okay, here’s something of substance. I am a professional stage actress. I have studied the art and technique of acting for the last twenty years. Kristen Stewart is not a very good actress. She has no range when it comes to portraying different characters. I cannot honestly tell the difference between Bella, any of her other characters, and Kristen in person.
They are all the same person. Her sputtering and constant blinking are so repetetive that they’ve become her signature.
You want an example of an amzing actress with range, diversity, AND Talent..Meryl Streep. Watch THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA and then watch JULIE&JULIA..she actually becomes her characters.
Sorry to all you fans, don’t mean to say you’re dumb or anything for liking her…it’s just my opinion.
I am sick of the media assuming that all her fans are teenagers and only Twilight fans. I am not a teenager and I love her other movies. PLEASE WRITE SOMETHING WITH SUBSTANCE AND NOT BASED STUFF ON YOUR OWN PERSONAL ASSUMPTION.
Just one information is wrong…
Most of the fan that did this are adults, not teens, from all over the world.
Some of them already watched the movies in Sundance and want to watch this again. Some, like me, are fans of Kristen, before Twilight mania, and are from another countries.
Melissa Leo, Kristen Stewart and James Gandolfini are amazing actors and most of the projects that are involved are good. They are a reference for me.
I read an old script, I saw the trailer and it is amazing. The silence with a little notes of music, the good, solid text, Kristen saying everything with her face and body expression and James given his lines.
Yes! I want to watch it!
Although I didn’t participated of the movement and I don’t approve this email’s war but I am with them.
I am not a Twilight’s fan but I love “cinema” and everything linked to it. I have 49 years old and I am from Brazil.
i want jast be fun clob
I think the fans who started todays emails went beyond what needed to be done, if a producer says we are working on it leave it be. You may have only succeded in making yourselves, the producers and the actress look foolish. It’s only been for sale at SD for a week and it’s known that there was interest in it. Why not let the current talks finish before sending countless emails to multiple companies? The producer actually had to stay stop that’s silly, it was being worked on patience is needed.
we are not twi hard fans…just simply kristen fans.
I emailed for it, I don’t like Twilight much, most of us have read the script and really want to see the film. No harm done, just some polite emails showing our support for the film.
KRISTEN FANS not twilight fans…not all kristen fans are twilight fans.
