ECLIPSE…I loved the book and I hope the movie.
HOWEVER… David Slade better know his audience!!!
The Twilight saga is supposed to be about the Bella and Edward love story, but Summit seems to feel we’d be better served with more of the werewolves (New Moon) and more fight scenes (rumored Eclipse). Because an audience of women who bring millions and millions of dollars into your coffers somehow just aren’t as valuable as a possible audience of young men, it seems.
Too bad they’ll never get that group no matter how much violence they stick in the films, AND if the leaked Eclipse script is the final cut for the movie…The same thing is happening again…the Edward/Bella love story is being shortened and key dialogue is missing! WHY?!
It was like summit thought “oh well we have to add these scenes and eliminate scenes but it doesn’t matter how it’s done, those crazy fans won’t care, they’ll watch anything we throw out there. If they want the repeat business that was for the first Twilight movie David and Summit need to put Bella/Edward’s love story front and center as in the book.
That’s what we want to see Bella and Edward action NOT vampire/wolf action. Twilight is not advertised as an action book but as a romance story. It made it millions because of that PERIOD!!!!
Catherine Hardwicke GOT IT she wanted to make the movie visual she even gave us the APPLE and she knew that it was about the passion and heat of Bella and Edward.

I’m excited to see that Eclipse is moving along! Only 5 more months
I’m glad there isn’t any drama about movie clips leaking to the internet…but, a little teaser trailor on TV would be nice.
Eclipse is my favorite book! love the action and love to hear about jasper’s back story. Cannot wait for june to get here!
