'Twilight' Countdown: 30 days until the movie premiere
We're almost there, "Twilight" fans. Just one month away from getting to sink our teeth into the story of Bella and her pale paramour Edward.
To celebrate, the EN&B blog will be bringing you daily -- yes, daily -- "Twilight" treats, including video and fan profiles and exclusive Q&A and film stills as Nov. 21 draws near.
To kick things off, here is my favorite "Twilight" Sims video. You wouldn't believe how many of them there are, but I still laugh every time I watch this one. It also doubles as a decent primer for the uninitiated:
And, just as a bonus, the day's best bits from around the Web:
- Spanish "Twilight" site Crepusculo has several new shots from the set -- including this one of Bella in a very, er, interesting ensemble. The film's producers are not working with a "Harry Potter" budget, and yes, Bella is not supposed to sporting "Gossip Girl" styles in Forks, Washington. But Edward is supposed to be attracted to her -- at first glance (more or less) -- and this green pajama top-on-jean outfit would more likely keep him at a distance, no?
- Peter Facinelli, who plays Dr. Carlisle Cullen, reveals to Premiere.com how he wasn't director Catherine Hardwicke's first choice to play Edward's pop. Click above to find out what he meant when he said: "I always joke that I bought the role of Dr. Carlisle Cullen for $29.99. And I was worth every penny."
- MTV's "Twilight Tuesday" presents an interview with Anna Kendrick, who plays the jealous Jessica Stanley, in which she quashes gossip that she was giving Kristen Stewart (Bella) the stink eye: "I adore Kristen! She is totally my homey."
- Mark your calendars: Cam Gigandet, who plays bad vamp James, will present never-before-seen footage from the movie on Spike TV's Scream 2008 awards. Tune in Oct. 21 at 9 p.m. for your sneak peek.
