With werewolves, motorcycles, Italy and cliff-diving, the cast and crew have their work cut out for them.

Article ByLarry Carroll

And so, the lion fell in love with the lamb. But as $70.5 million worth of moviegoers watched the closing scenes of “Twilight” this past weekend, one thought unavoidably filled their love-struck minds: Where do Edward, Bella and all the other undead denizens of Forks go from here?

As Twilighters are all too happy to point out, author Stephenie Meyer has already penned three smash sequels to her intimate ode to human-immortal romance. The first, “New Moon,” got the green light for production this past weekend, less than 24 hours after “Twilight” began breaking box-office records. The best-selling sequel tells a decidedly darker story that has Bella receiving a nasty paper cut, getting attacked by one of her potential in-laws and becoming an adrenaline junkie while an in-hiding Edward teeters on the edge of suicide. (Read our “New Moon” wish list and add your own in the MTV Movies Blog.)

“It’s got werewolves, it’s got visual effects that turn people into werewolves, it’s got motorcycle stunts, you go to Italy. It’s probably twice as much as this [to film],” “Twilight” director Catherine Hardwicke explained when we asked her about the sequel just before “Twilight” opened.

Although the novel greatly reduces Edward’s presence, Robert Pattinson insists that “New Moon” is the installment he loves best. “I’m looking forward to doing the re-emergence … at the end of the second book, when he’s killing himself,” the star said when we spoke with him last week. “I think that’d be kind of spectacular seeing that. And the second book is my favorite book, so I’m quite looking forward to doing it.”

And as the final shot in “Twilight” promises, hell hath no fury like a woman who just lost her man. Luckily, the producers of the “Twilight” films were smart enough to sign Rachelle LefevreEdi Gathegi and their soon-to-be-far-more-important co-starTaylor Lautner for both “New Moon” and the potential third film “Eclipse.”

‘True Blood’ Challenges ‘Twilight’ To A Vamp-Off

This weekend, “True Blood” makes its way back onto our TV sets and with all these blood-suckers surrounding us now — thanks to the HBO show, “Twilight” and the forthcoming “Vampire Diaries” — we really need one big vamp-off! (Oh, did we forget to mention there’s rumors of a “Buffy” movie remake?)

Recently two of “True Blood’s” stars spoke to Interview magazine and weighed in on whether or not the vampires of their show could ever live together in a perfect little vampire universe. Check out their answers after the jump.

One of the show’s cast, Mehcad Brooks, gave his thumbs up at the idea of a union: “Of course. It’s not like the democrats and the republicans. ‘Twilight’ is amazing. Jackson Rathbone and Edi Gathegi from the film are friends. But I think our vamps are the ones the adults watch when they tuck the kiddies into their ‘Twilight’ sheets and knickers.”

And, he even described what that “vamp-off” would be like: “We could always have a ‘vamp-off’ which was very common in 15th century Wallachia and current day New Orleans,” Mehcad said. “But my prediction is after a couple rounds they’d be begging for their undead mothers.”

Meanwhile, “True Blood” star Valerie Cruz gave a nay to the idea: “I don’t know…I think maybe the ‘True Blood’ vampires would be jealous of the ‘Twilight’ vampires for being so sparkly and shiny in the sun…they are the supermodels of the vampire world…and I think that we have all seen that supermodels and humans have difficulties with peaceful coexistence…a la the Naomi episodes.”

So what does her version of a”vamp-off” look like? “I think it would a little like the rumble in ‘West Side Story’…with lots of hair product and fancy dance numbers and lots of hot men!  And, yes I think the ‘True Blood’ vampires would definitely crush the sparkly ‘Twilight’ vamps, without question.”

Hmmm, we do wonder what would happen if all these vamps met up at some sort of vampire convention. Maybe we should start trying to make it happen. Who’s with us?

Do you think that the vamps of “True Blood” would get along with the vamps of “Twilight”?

Catherine Hardwicke Hopes To Reunite With ‘Twilight’ Stars (MTV News)

‘Twilight’ director says that she can see stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart in her next two projects ‘Maximum Ride’ and ‘If I Stay’.

Under the watchful eye and creative mind of director Catherine Hardwicke, “Twilight” stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have gone from virtual unknowns to superstar celebrities. And if Hardwicke has her way, the trio not only have a past and present together, but a future as well.

“There’s a few projects in the future that I hope we get to work together on,” Hardwicke revealed to us on the red carpet of Hollywood Life’s Young Hollywood Awards. “We’ll see.”

Recently, Hardwicke took MTV for a rare tour inside her house, where she cast Stewart and Pattinson after a particularly sultry audition on her bed. And while speaking to us Sunday night, she once again marveled at how far the duo have come since those early days.

“They’ve definitely gotten more and more confident in themselves. Obviously, that day was awkward — to just meet somebody, and then you need to kiss them right then. And especially because Kristen had to kiss three other guys, poor thing,” she laughed. “I think that they’ve become more self-confident and strong with the camera. And they’re just beautiful and blossoming. They’ve always been very deep. They always go deep into their characters and care about it. Their core is the same.”

Metro- New Moon’s Kristen Stewart Gets Inside Bella’s Head(Metro Article)

 

This article was written by Talia Soghomonian for Metro News, for more on New Moon and their exclusive interviews, check out the website.

www.metronews.ca

 

 

It is the role that catapulted her to stardom, and Kristen Stewart is about to reprise her part as Bella in the hotly anticipated sequel to Twilight — New Moon

What is it like to be back on set doing another Twilight film?

It’s a little bit surreal to be back doing a second one, just because it’s something that I thought about for an entire year and now it’s happening. But it’s sort of like I couldn’t wait any longer.

It’s hard. Usually you finish a movie and there’s a very long grieving process. You have to lose the character. You have to drop it from your mind or else it just continues to bug you. In this case, I couldn’t drop her completely and I worked in between, which is a strange sensation. It’s weird how easy it was to slip right back into it. I don’t know if it’s because I have such a reference, like the book, or because I knew that I just had to do it. I don’t know, but it feels good. It feels like I can finally release the pressure.

Isn’t that pressure kind of self-inflicted?

Yeah, I have that feeling on every movie that I do. It’s just that this one, I had to wait a year. Unless there’s something about the story or that character I’m playing that literally needs to be fulfilled — like, consummated — unless it’s actually lived through and physically manifested, it’s just a story and it’s not done. So until you actually bring it to life, you basically have the capability of murdering the character on the page. If you don’t do it justice, then nobody else is ever going to see those things and you’re never going to learn from those experiences because you didn’t do it right.

So yeah, the thought of having to live through something that I find so worthwhile, and then subsequently have people learn from that through your own experience, I would do anything. I would jump off a cliff for it. Oh! There’s cliff-jumping in our movie. Perfect! (Laughs)

What are the changes in this second installment? Your character Bella takes risks again…

Well, she loses what basically gives her the drive to do anything in her whole life. She loses the man she’s in love with, but she also loses her entire life plan, and she’s so young to have to be forced into a decision like that. It’s just a glorified, elaborate version of the worst breakup you’ve ever been through. All of a sudden you question everything. All of a sudden you know nothing and you’re dropped in the middle of a freezing cold ocean.

Oddly, we have a character that’s warm enough and bright enough to bring her out of that, and it’s truly gut-ripping. Because as perfect as Jacob is for her, she holds on to an ideal, the ultimate fiery love that she has for Edward even though it’s not comfortable, it’s not practical and it’s not a good idea. So it’s really a very strong thing to do. It takes someone who really trusts themselves.

So basically the movie starts out and everything’s great, and then it gets absolutely terrible, and then it gets maybe OK again, and then it’s” no, no, no, no – life is hard.” It’s going to get hard again because he comes back again.

Is she introverted or just seeking an ideal? 

It’s not that she’s incredibly introverted. She’s just yet to have found a connection that is truthful. She’s a seeker of the truth. She’s not one to get wrapped up in something that is a fantasy. She doesn’t set herself up for disappointment. So that’s what makes the story with her and Edward so compelling, in that this is a girl that normally wouldn’t do something this crazy.

So what does Kristen prefer, the werewolf or the vampire?

Kristen shouldn’t open her mouth (Laughs). Kristen is entirely torn. Kristen should stop using her name in the third person.

You were virtually unknown when you shot Twilight. How has your life changed since its phenomenal success?

My life hasn’t changed. Most circumstances I find myself in are different than they were a year ago, but I myself haven’t changed…however a normal 18-year-old girl would change in a year. But it makes things so much easier. I would do it for free every day [even] if nobody saw it. I cannot describe how good it feels to actually have something that is truly into your heart and soul actually affecting people. And that’s amazing. So that’s the biggest change.

Has success changed you?

It didn’t change me, it changed things around me a little bit…I’m so used to doing movies that nobody wants to see. To put your heart and soul into something for years of your life and have it actually affect people is probably the most satisfying, and that is a completely ineffective word to describe how satisfying it is.

Do you feel a responsibility towards the author’s fans and the movie fans? 

Yeah, absolutely. It’s a strange thing. You start something and you know that it’s going to take on a life of its own, but its already something so whole — there are so many people that you’re going to inevitably either make happy or not. Everyone’s understanding of the story and love for it is going to show, even though there are little issues that everyone’s going to have because everybody reads the book differently. So of course we have a massive responsibility. Because of them, we’re able to do what we like to do.

What was it like coming back to a different director?

As an actor, you don’t work with the same director on every film. And this, it’s a continuation. It’s the same story but it is a different movie. I love Catherine (Hardwicke). She’s a dear friend of mine, but Chris (Weitz) – it just works out.

Besides all the technical, logistical reasons, Chris is so devoted and because he’s a man, there’s a common question. How is it having a man director? Is it a huge difference? You can’t make generalizations about people like that. He’s one of the most compassionate human beings I’ve ever met. Unfalteringly compassionate. He cares way too much for the story, and you need that. So he’s perfect.

How would you describe it to someone who hasn’t read the books or seen Twilight?

Anybody who’s ever been broken up with will probably watch this movie, and their temperature will probably go up.

How do I describe this? It’s a movie about ultimate devotion being ripped from you and thinking that your entire world that you’ve established is wrong. And then trying to get it back and realizing that it’s all OK. (Laughs) And vampires, werewolves, too, so that makes it even more exciting. Robert Pattinson is just so cute. So is Taylor Lautner. That’s what I would tell someone who doesn’t know about the movie yet.

You’re still quite young. Do you want to continue making movies or perhaps go to college?

I absolutely have no foresight. I used to think I had a lot when I was younger. I worked really hard in school to give myself options, and I’ve literally taken those options and thrown them down the toilet. Purposely – not to make that sound totally negative. It’s what I want. I want to keep doing what I’m doing.

It’s funny, people ask me all the time: “What do you do for fun? What do you do when you’re not acting?”

It’s a strange thing, acting. It’s a business, it’s a job, everything like that. All it is, is self-reflection. You just never stop caring about people and I’ve never stopped doing that, so I’m sure it’ll seep into other areas of my life. I want to write. I’m not going to school because I can’t take the structure of it, but I’m not going to stop learning.
