Carlisletwilight_l Naively, it didn't occur to me that there would be midnight parties at various retailers tonight for the release of the Twilight DVD (enter your zipcode here to find the one nearest you). But just because the movie was a bit disappointing for some, doesn't mean that others won't want to own it. Immediately. Plus, the extras have been getting some decent buzz. You've got more making out in the deleted scenes, Robert Pattinson livening up the commentary track. There are good times still to be had, friends. (Or so I sincerely hope since I'm planning on buying my copy Saturday -- at a sane hour.)

What are your Twilight DVD release plans? Had I not a pre-existing engagement with my DVR and sofa, I might've headed to a local Borders. They're planning in-store scavenger hunts, which sound horrifying but hypnotic. They're also doing The Borders Twilight Movie Awards, in partnership with Summit Entertainment. Fans vote on competitive categories such as "Best OME (Oh My Edward) Moment," non-competive categories such as "Best Vampire," humorless categories such as "Funniest Moment" (Edward getting his first whiff of Bella in biology should've been nominated -- Pattinson's acting cracked me up!), and seriously incomplete categories such as "Best Hair." I may have laughed when I first saw photos of Peter Facinelli as blond Carlisle, pictured, but I thought he totally pulled that look off in the film.

So, there's good news for us Twilight fans - Bella Swan will be, in line with New Moon the book (for more New Moon expectations see here) be cliff-diving.

Below, Kristen Stewart talks about her preparation for the cliff-diving scene in New Moon. Says she, she went to do a "head-scan" where she had to make a solid face and hold it in preparation for a computerized Bella to be made for the cliff-diving scene.

She gets to "almost jump" on her own, she says.

This is great news for us Twilight fans who wish to see scenes like Bella's cliff-dive presented perfectly to us. Chris Weitz, New Moon's director, has some experience with CGI in his work on The Golden Compass and others.

What do you think? Is the use of CGI in the cliff-diving scene a good thing? Comment below and let us know!

Twilightbellamittens_l There's no expensive D&G, no blinged Juicy Couture, no double-C Chanel or slinky Versace in the seductively subdued world of "Twilight."

"Twilight" costume designer Wendy Chuck explains to EW why she didn't put Bella (Kristen Stewart) in a single big designer creation in "Twilight."

And she probably won't do any recognizable designer duds in "New Moon" either.

Seems she made a conscious choice to shun A-list designers and stick to real-life affordable separates.

''My look is always character-based and not fashion-based," she tells EW. It's really easy to get over-stylish, and I felt that Bella in particular had to be anchored in the real world.''

That's why you see Bella in the parking scene car wreck scene in a brown Rubbish hoodie from Nordstrom and woolen mittens from Ruth Cross. And why Bella looks sweet in a cream thermal by Curious Gypsy with thumb holes in the sleeves in the hospital scene.

And why she sports a faded blue cargo jacket from Jack BB Dakota (purchased at the last minute from a Nordstrom Rack store) when she and Edward do tree climbing. And why she dons a $20 Max and Cleo silk frock from the discount shop Ross to briefly hit the high school prom.

According to EW, that newly dubbed "Twilight" cargo jacket will be reissued in July for $84. We want one now!

What's your favorite Bella outfit in "Twilight"? Edward (Rob Pattinson) sure seems to like all her clothes.


Summit Entertainment has revealed that five Native American/First Nation actors will join Taylor Lautner as members of the wolf pack in The Twilight Saga: New Moon. The announced actors are Chaske Spencer, Bronson Pelletier, Alex Meraz, Kiowa Gordon, and Tyson Houseman. Werewolf characters, in particular Lautner's Jacob Black, will figure prominently in New Moon, due in theaters on Nov. 20.


Sources tell EW that Summit Entertainment, the studio behind Twilight, is talking to its favorite vampire, Robert Pattinson, about starring in the project Memoirs. Neither the studio nor Pattinson's agents would confirm the star's involvement. The spec script, from young writer Will Fetters, which wound up on 2008's Black List, centers on two college students who have both experienced personal loss, who fall in love and heal their fractured families. Hollywoodland director Allen Coulter is negotiating to direct the script and screenwriter Jenny Lumet (Rachel Getting Married) is working on the rewrite. Pattinson is currently in preproduction on the Twilight sequel New Moon and is already signed on to the third film in the series, Eclipse.
