Robert Pattinson Talks About Eclipse, Pranks and Competition with Taycob



From RottenTomatoes whose tomatometer made me see some pretty awful movies before I stopped trusting them. According to them New Moon is rotten with 30%. Well in my opinion rotten tomatoes is pretty rotten if they think Team America: World Police and Spartan are very fresh. Hours of my life I'll never get back...

From seriously Rotten Tomatoes:

The Twilight Saga: New Moon has been in cinemas for almost a week. So, depending on your feelings towards sparkly vampires and extremely buff werewolves, you will either have seen it three times already (ZOMG RPattz!) or avoided it altogether. Either way, the fandemonium has subsided enough for us to look to the future. It's just seven months until Eclipse, the third instalment of Stephenie Meyer's popular book series, hits the big screen. RT caught up with the cast in LA's Four Seasons hotel during their manic New Moon press tour to get the latest on the eagerly anticipated film. We learned that Robert Pattinson hates pranks, that Nikki Reed loves werewolves and that we may just see a fifth film. Read on to find out more...

Fact #1: It's Darker

The brand new poster for Eclipse (above) hints at a darker tone with its brooding storm clouds. With 30 Days of Night director David Slade at the helm, it's unsurprising. "Every movie is different because we work with a different director on each one, which I love," Taylor Lautner tells RT. "David Slade is perfect for the third film because it's darker. Eclipse was my favourite book."

Ashley Greene, who plays vampire Alice, tells RT that Slade isn't just a prince of darkness. "David is actually hysterical," she laughs, "He has such a dry sense of humour that sometimes you don't know if he's kidding or not. Eclipse will be amazing because he has made it far edgier and more dramatic. It's going to look very cool."

Fact #2: There Will Be Less "Love Story" and More "War"

"Eclipse isn't as intimate as Twilight or New Moon," Robert Pattinson explains to us. "We're at war, so I get to interact with more characters, not just Kristen. You'll also find out more about the other members of the Cullen family. It just feels bigger." But -- fear not, Twihards -- that isn't to say the love story is cast aside altogether. "New Moon set up a love triangle with Bella, Edward and Jacob," says Lautner. "So we explore that further in Eclipse. It's a tough situation for all of them because Bella is torn between two guys, Jacob can't get the girl that he loves and then there's Edward, with all of his issues."

Fact #3: The Werewolves Will Crank Up the Sex Appeal

"We all know the appeal of the vampire family," says Nikki Reed, who plays vampire Rosalie. "But the werewolf boys are on a whole different level. They interact with a youthful, playful, comfortable warmth. It's very sexy."

As for Pattinson, he admits that his personal jealousy about Taylor Lautner's newly-ripped physique actually comes in handy for the role. "In Eclipse, Taylor and I have lots of scenes together where we have to be jealous and petty with each other," he says. "So it helps that I actually do feel inadequate when I see his body, especially because he's younger than me. He fulfills every criteria of what teenage girls want, physically, in a guy. I felt like a had to prove myself against him."

Fact #4: There's More Action

"Filming Eclipse actually changed my life," says Nikki Reed of the arduous training regime the cast had to endure. "I have never been so fit -- this is the first time in my life I have actually had a bicep. It's bizarre to compare how we look now to how we all looked in the first movie. The entire cast turned up on set for Eclipse looking super-buff."

New cast member Bryce Dallas Howard tried to play a prank on the crew during one stunt, but she didn't count on Pattinson's awkwardness. "We had a fight scene where Bryce had to grab my hair," he laughs. "So she took a clump of hair from my stunt double's wig and was going to pretend she had pulled it from my head. She told me to scream and storm off set, but it was so embarrassing. She had this huge clump of hair in her hand, and I was like 'oww,' really unconvincingly."

While the rest of the cast were having fun with stunts, spare a thought for poor Taylor Lautner. "Eclipse is a lot more physical for my character," he explains, "but any time I have any kind of action, I'm a wolf, so it's all done with CGI. It's a bummer."

Fact #5: The Ending Will Be Nicely Set Up For a Fourth - And Perhaps Fifth - Film

There are four books in The Twilight Saga: Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn. But Ashley Greene gave RT the strongest indication yet that there might be five films. "We have finished filming Eclipse and one would assume that, if New Moon does as well as Twilight, then we'll start filming Breaking Dawn next year," she says.

"The only thing is, Breaking Dawn is a very large book so it would be a really long movie. We're thinking they might decide to split it into two parts, like they did with Harry Potter. Either way, we need to get on with shooting them because, unlike Harry Potter, vampires don't age. So we all need to look the same!"

So help you god if there isn't enough romance in EC, David S.!

Don't you dare to leave out jealous Rob fighting unfair (loooove the accelarating Volvo scene btw), the bed testing (leg hitch - yum), the proposal (with Robward on his knee - sigh), and all the rest of the kissing and touching from filling of the university papers to moaning Edward ready to give in to Bella in the meadow!!!

"New Moon approaches the book series as a dull read—dragging out story elements with no narrative economy, playing to the target audience’s blockbuster mentality rather than respecting their romantic delight.'

Off topic, but OMG 100% how i feel about new moon. its an honest review. I feel that summit greed to get more male audience and CW's bias towards Jacob pushed the central theme of Edward n Bella to secondary importance. since all Edward scenes were rushed and inadequately handled, the poignancy of the breakup and the reunion was lost. So what New Moon becomes is a mere introduction of a character.This review points towards it.
IMO CH butchered twilight but the soul of the book i.e. Edward Bella love, remain intact.CW created a beautiful body but the soul is undermined.

If they cut out the hot tent scene, I will not be happy.

Gozde said...

crazy vamp said...

@ Pet 73!

Oooohh, I do too! I loooove the volvo scene!! It is hot, isn't it? And, then, in the next scene, he is in her bedroom. And the 'bed testing'? God, I think I had Robwardgasms reading this, over and over...

I just love Eclipse. It is my fav one!
Yep! God help him if there isn't enough romance in it! I am a bit afraid, they rushed both movies too much... hmm... :(

crazy vamp said...

I have 130 students's exams on my desk to be corrected, and many classes to study for, but, all of a sudden, I felt like reading 'Eclipse' again...
wonder why...

Pet73 said...

It's my fav., too, so they better get it right - grrr!

Of course, I like to see the battle in the end (can't even imagine how sexy fighting - Bella protecting - Rob will look :o) but more important to mee is the romantic stuff (of course also the tent scene)!

A said...

A little reassurance. I don't know what David has done with the proposal, but MR wrote it. I've heard he's stuck very close to the script.

MR: "The proposal comes into the end of New Moon (the movie), and that is the first proposal. Absolutely in Eclipse, the proposal when they’re on the bed, yes — to me, that was a quintessential scene from the book. When Edward gets on his knees, with his mother’s ring, and she says yes — that was one of the most romantic scenes that Stephenie wrote in all four books."

Pet73 said...

A- I also heard that she wrote an additional backflash scene when Edward says (in the book) "I'm that type of guy": It's kind of an romantic scene of him and Bella imagining them at "his" time. If this is done well, it might turn out great.

Pet73 said...

I think in the book Bella is thinking "I actually could see it before my eyes" or something like that, when Edward talks to her, creating a picture of the time he was still human and preparing to be a soldier and how he might behave (to worship and marry a woman). I assume it's this scene MR is referring to.

sinem said...

no way to cut out the tent scene..do not tend to do this david,honey or i'm gonna be trouble for you..hell nooooo!!! for the sake of unconditional loves..:)))

Kemberly said...

Steph said...

I agree, New Moon was beautiful, but the soul was definitely undermined. Give me more E/B... who cares about the battle and fighting?!?

I don´t like the idea of less romance because I think there isn´t much in New Moon either...less love and more action..Well at least I hope Rob appears more than in New Moon, not enough Edward for me in the second film..
