Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) tries to protect Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) from a tree with vindictive Victoria (Bryce Dallas Howard) hanging precariously on top of it. (Click on the image to enlarge it.) The tree will not be standing for long. (Watch the final Eclipse trailer.)
This screen grab from The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is one of the many screen grabs that have been circulating the Internet. As mentioned before in previous posts, Summit is clearly making sure that US moviegoers know that Eclipsehas lots of action.
Here’s hoping it’ll have as much emotional depth as suspense and thrills. Else, Summit will end up alienating fans of the novels. Those fans, after all, form the core of Twilight’s moviegoing public. The studio has to strike a fine balance between attempting to reach the widest possible audience while maintainingEclipse faithful to the book’s spirit.
Now, much like the meadow setting featuring Bella and Edward making love, this snow scene looks incredibly beautiful. Javier Aguirresarobe is truly a master of his craft. (I’m assuming that Aguirresarobe, not some second-unit cinematographer, shot both scenes.)
Directed by David Slade from a screenplay by Melissa Rosenberg, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse opens in the United States on June 30.
