'New Moon' costume designer Tish Monaghan talks Edward's suit and Jacob's cut-offs


ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Anyone who’s listened to the Twilight DVD commentary knows that Robert Pattinson wasn’t a fan of Edward’s pea coat.
TISH MONAGHAN: He wasn’t a fan of the pea coat. He wore it in virtually every scene, and I think maybe he just got tired of it. I’m guessing. [Laughs] He just wanted a more mature look. That was part of Edward’s Grade 11 year, and now he’s getting into his graduation year, he’s in a relationship. He had worn hoodies and jeans and sneakers, and Robert, the director [Chris Weitz], and I all wanted to portray him more as a gentleman, more elegant and classic. With our vampire characters, I always went back to the time period in which they were turned to see if there’s any element I could try to simulate in contemporary clothing. He came out of the Edwardian period, around 1910. Of course, most of the gentleman from that time would be wearing suits, coats, hats, etc. We had to pick something that was iconic for the character that would suffice to be used throughout the whole film. At the very beginning of the film, he has one school outfit, and then there's Bella's birthday party and disaster strikes. So Edward ends up in that same costume for the remainder of the film. I was thinking of just putting him in a dress shirt and a pair of pants, but Robert wanted to be in a suit.

So I found a modern contemporary look that would be appealing to him and to the massive fan base, a very slim cut, and a fabric that to me was a bit Old World — this beautiful tweed fabric that we got out of England. It had the gray base, which is kind of essential for the Cullen characters in their cool tones, but also had little interesting flecks of blue, which is also Cullen, and a tiny little bit of rust, which I liked because Bella wears earth tones and that kinda linked her into the picture. The general texture of the suit would hold up well no matter what setting he was in: Inside the house for the party, or in the forest, or in the Volturi chamber. We had to show wear on the suit, and it’s much easier to rough up something that has texture to it than just a flat piece of wool. His pants are worn at the knees, they’re rumpled.

'New Moon' crosses the $200 million mark


In its eighth day of release, Summit Entertainment's "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" crossed the double-century mark making an estimated $206.1 million.

The domestic B.O. for "New Moon" easily eclipsed that of the first "Twilight" which amassed $192.8 million in 20 weeks.

After Warner Bros.' football drama "The Blind Side" squeezed a few more bodies into the multiplex on Thanksgiving than "New Moon," the vampire sequel took the top spot back on Friday with $17.9 million at 4,042 theaters.

While that figure reps a 75% decline for "New Moon" from its first Friday, such steep drops aren’t uncommon for a record tentpole opener, i.e. "The Dark Knight" fell 67%; "Spider-Man 3," -71%; and "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End," -70%.

Multiplex traffic picked up greatly yesterday for the top 10 which is typical on Black Friday as auds tend to sit back on Thanksgiving. Of note, "New Moon" saw a 95% surge in its Friday take over its Thanksgiving B.O., "Blind Side" shot up 71% as well as wide entries "Ninja Assassin," (+24%) and "Old Dogs" (+67%).

Rotten Tomatoes: 5 Facts about The Twilight Saga: Eclipse


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, ifNew 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, unlikeHarry Potter, vampires don't age. So we all need to look the same!"

Which Team Are You?




This coming weeks issue of Entertainment Weekley will feature none other Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner in 3 seperate collectors edition covers. It is tittled 'New Moon's record-breaking opening and where Hollywood goes from here. You are either Team Edward, Team Bella, or Team Jacob.

NEW YORK – Hot off the tail of the New Moon premiere, this week’s Entertainment Weekly explores the phenomenon that is the Twilight series.Chris Weitz opens the door to his beach house looking like a wilted rose. He’s unshaven, pale and wearing clothes he appears to have found wadded in a ball on his bedroom floor. It’s exactly the way you’d expect to find the director the morning after his movie The Twilight Saga: The New Moon opened around the world to numbers no one thought possible. But Weitz isn’t recovering from a long night of revelry. He’s just exhausted.

In the last ten days, he’s been in more time zones than the sun, on the last stretch of promotional duties for his movie. “I’m at the point of physical collapse,” says Weitz, 40. “Hopefully I will now lapse into obscurity. That’s my plan.”We can think of 140 million reasons that’s not going to happen – all of them dollars.

On opening weekend, New Moon made the kind of money usually reserved for comic-book heroes and boy wizards, breaking records for midnight screenings and Friday box office. More significantly, Weitz has made the highest grossing female-oriented movie since James Cameron opened Titanic in 1997. And, with Sandra Bullock scoring a career best opening with $34.5 million for The Blind Side, he’s taken part in one of the most female-driven weekends in history--one that should wake up whatever

Hollywood executives still underestimate the spending power of the purse. Still, Weitz won’t make any grand claims for himself. “The degree of credit I can take is limited,” he says. “I’m just the glorified conductor.”OK, he’s got a point. Those hundreds of tween girls, and grown women for that matter, that lined up days in advance of New Moon’s Los Angeles premiere weren’t sleeping on concrete to see Weitz.

They were desperate for Kristen Stewart, Rob Pattinson and Taylor Lautner--who, despite the microscopic level of scrutiny they’re under, still seem to appreciate their supporters. “I would rather spend tonight hanging with the fans than answering any more questions,” said Stewart at the premiere. Pattinson added, “I don’t know how the Beatles felt but I imagine it was close to this. Very few human beings will ever get to experience the love we feel at Twilight events.”

That visceral, obsessive amour for everything in Stephenie Meyer’s literary world has turned a $50 million teenage melodrama into an event that knows no geographic boundaries. The global take for the weekend? $258 million. Says producer Wyck Godfrey, “It’s a worldwide cultural phenomenon that no one could have predicted.”Pop culture has been bursting with blood-suckers of late and audiences are clearly responding- as evidenced by the success of CW’s Vampire Diaries, HBO’s True Blood and a slew of vampire novels which hit the best-seller lists in the wake of Twilight. But what Hollywood has to figure out now is what to do with this audience next. “It’s great that the greenlighters in town have realized that little girls go to the movies,” say MGM’s president of marketing Michael Vollman. “But this genre has worked forever. To Sir With Love was an angsty girl movie.”So what will this fickle, yet incredibly devoted audience turn to next? Disney and producer Godfrey think it might be… fairies.

They’ve scooped up Aprilynne Pike’s best-selling young adult novel Wings. New Regency is banking on a new novel from Ann Brashares (author of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) about a college couple who turn out to be soul mates who’ve been loving and losing each other for centuries. And Lionsgate is hoping tweens line up for an adaptation of author Suzanne Collin’s The Hunger Games, about a dystopian world where teenagers fight to the death. “Some will work and some won’t,” Summit’s co-chairman and CEO Rob Friedman says of the girl-driven projects. “There will be a lot of impersonators. But it won’t be the Twilight Saga and it won’t have the fan base. Twilight is unique.

I’ve never seen anything like it.”Neither has director Weitz, who’s still recovering. He’s defiantly off the hook for the third Twilight movie, Eclipse, which David Slade (30 Days of Night) is already editing for release next summer. But what if Meyer and Summit come calling again for the fourth and final novel, Breaking Dawn?

The studio still hasn’t decided if the book should be one film or two. But if they call, will Weitz answer? “I’d do it for Stephenie, Rob, Taylor, and Kristen. I feel a great deal of gratitude for those people,” says Weitz. “But I don’t think I could do another press tour like we did. I just think I would die.” Careful, you might come back as a vampire.Entertainment Weekly also showcases the Breakout Beauties & Beasts of New Moon that have growing fan-bases of their own. The newly anointed stars include Alex Meraz, Dakota Fanning, Ashley Greene, Chaske Spencer, Michael Sheen, Anna Kendrick, and Charlie Bewley.(Cover Story, Page 34) On EW.com

More Robert Pattinson Vanity Fair Outtakes Part 4

Chris Weitz talks to Entertainment Weekley


'New Moon' director Chris Weitz tells EW: "This was made for the fans, and if you don't get it, then you don't get it. I like that. Here is a bit from the interview with you can read the rest of here:

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What was your biggest fear going into [opening] weekend?
CHRIS WEITZ:
I didn’t have any particular fears. The tracking numbers were enough to indicate that I wouldn’t be letting the studio down. But if one could imagine their biggest fears, it would be complete rejection of the movie, by the fans. What I’ve realized over the last week is I won’t necessarily get good reviews for this movie. Having swallowed that, this was made for the fans, and if you don’t get it, then you don’t get it.

Did the negative reviews surprise you?
Nothing surprises me in terms of reviews. Having been a reviewer myself, there are only two ways to spin this story. You can either be the one guy who says this is a great movie, or more likely, take a more jaundiced view of the whole thing. And given the media blitz that has accompanied New Moon, it’s rather unsurprising. I do wish there was more appreciation for cinematographer Javier Aguirresarobe. I think he’s a genius and I think he made something beautiful.

5 Fun Facts about Ashley Greene

People has put together five fun facts about Ashley Greene:

1. She is a daredevil"I had a great cheerleading squad, so I got into tumbling. The kinds of moves where they throw you in the air and you do a back flip and they catch you. Looking back, I could have killed myself! We fell a lot," she says. "There was one time they didn't catch me. That was not fun. Another time, I nailed my jaw on someone's shoulder on the way down. My coach was like, 'You alright? Get back up.' "

2. She graduated from school early to move to L.A."I was in all honors and AP classes, so by the middle of my senior year, I had all my credits. So when the opportunity came to move to L.A. I went," Greene says. "Still, my mom was insistent that I come back for the cap and gown ceremony!"

3. She's close with Kellan Lutz"We have game nights on the weekends. We always do Taboo, Pictionary and Clue and we always battle on the Wii. He always beats me." But costar Peter Facinelli says Ashley has won at other games. While filming The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, due out in 2010, the cast found it harder and harder to go out without getting mobbed, "So we ended up eating in more and playing games at each other's apartments. One night we even played the Twilight Board Game," Facinelli says. "Kellan Lutz bought it. So it was me, Kellan, Ashley and Xavier, who plays Riley in Eclipse. And Ashley won. But her character is clairvoyant so I think she had a little bit of an advantage."

4. She has a tiny purse addiction"When I first got paid for Twilight, it was more about making sure my rent was secure for a year. There was no guarantee that the second, or third or fourth movies would get made. By the second film, I went a little crazy with bags. I bought ones from Gucci, Marc Jacobs and Burberry. I felt a little bad at the time, but I don't regret it. I've used them to death!"

5. She has one weakness: Cheez-Its"Cheez-Its are my vice, so I never buy them myself. Usually someone else is buying them for me and they're like, 'I know you love them.' I will eat a whole box. I have no self control," she says. "But I can't live life not enjoying food. So my solution is to get baggies and zip locks and Tupperware and give myself only one portion to take with me during the day."

Charlie Bewley of 'New Moon' talks to Entertainment Weekly


How did you get the part?
I was auditioning in Vancouver. You know like any actor is before they hit something, I was waiting tables, bartending, hoping something great would come around. Sure enough, New Moon pops up. Back in the end of January, they came to town because they switched the production from Oregon to Vancouver, so luckily enough they were casting the roles up there.

What did you bring to the role of Demetri?
Certainly based on all the information that I dragged out of the books and certain websites, I went in [to the audition] with my best interpretation of what I though Demetri was. I’m actually quite far removed from the character in terms of his physical attributes in the book. But I think the essence I brought to the audition was what got me the role: I brought the charm and at the same time, the sinister aspect of the character.

'New Moon' Stars reveal their favorite scenes in Eclipse


" 'Eclipse' is my favorite book, so I'm actually really excited for people to see that one," Peter Facinelli, who plays Carlisle Cullen, told MTV News. "The Cullens get to roll up their sleeves and really get into the mix of things. They're usually so restrained all the time, and I think people love the ['Twilight'] baseball scene because you got to see them actually do what they can do as vampires, and in 'Eclipse' it's that to the 10th power. You get to see them be what they can be as vampires."

Fellow Cullen Ashley Greene is also keen on displaying Alice Cullen's skills. "I'm really excited to see my fight sequence," she said. "There's some playful moments between Jasper and Alice that I'd like to see. They take parts of your character and put it into your fight sequence, so mine's kind of a Cirque du Soleil-ish sequence, so I want to see it."

Kellan Lutz looks forward to seeing the results of his hard work preparing to send Emmet into battle. "We went through the six weeks of fight training ... and they trained us so well that we just dominated our choreography moves," he shared. "And they're going to look really cool."

But while everyone seems excited to duke it out, Nikki Reed is most looking forward to sharing Rosalie's tragic backstory. "Well, Jackson [Rathbone] and I, we both had the opportunity to shoot our backstory, so I shot an entire sequence in the 1930s," she explained. "And it's intercut between a really amazing scene and moment that I have with Bella. And Jackson sort of did the same. I think the fans will like that. I think they want to see the Cullens' history. It gives me the opportunity to explain myself."

I for one can't wait to see this movie. I got excited just seeing the movie poster at the theatre. What are you most looking forward to seeing in Eclipse that you hope they didn't miss from the book?

'New Moon' Director reveals DVD Details



MTV recently caught up with Chris Weitz and discussed what will be appearing on the 'New Moon' DVD due out early 2010.

"There will be a commentary track," Weitz revealed, saying that he'll soon head into the recording booth with his three big stars, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner. "It'll just be us riffing off each other in our intimate way," he grinned. "We kind of like each other, so that should be fun."

In addition, fans can look forward to picking up a copy of "Twilight in Forks," the independently made documentary that teased fans with brief glimpses of its exploration into the real-life town that inspired Stephenie Meyer, only to be snatched up by Summit in September. An insider told MTV recently that the film will not be re-edited but will hit DVD alongside "New Moon" with all-new packaging and artwork.

Judging by the insatiable appetite of Twilighters, they'll be filling DVD stores in the first quarter of 2010, eager to glimpse the deleted scenes Weitz plans to unveil for the first time.

"There will be probably about 20 minutes of deleted material," he explained, promising some meaty footage. "It really is good stuff and a bonus for the fans."

Among this bonus footage could be several moments MTV knows were shot but did not make the final "New Moon" cut, including:

» A scene with Rachelle Lefevre as Victoria driving to Forks in a car, snacking on a dead human. It was one of the final moments the actress filmed as the nomadic vampire.

» A scene with the human characters eating Burger King.

» Another scene with the humans, this time with Justin Chon and Michael Welch expressing jealousy over Edward's car.

» More scenes with the Volturi in Italy.

» An extended cut of the scene where Mike Newton quotes Shakespeare to Bella in the Forks High parking lot; in it, he does a Marlon Brando impersonation.

» Scenes alluding to the ongoing breakup between Newton and Anna Kendrick's Jessica.

"When I made the film, I wanted it to arrive at a certain kind of flow and cadence," Weitz said of why he had to leave so many scenes on the cutting-room floor but hopes to restore many for the DVD. "[They would have affected] how the movie worked, and they didn't completely fit. But there'll be some groovy stuff in [the DVD]."
