Movie news

The Greetings from Twilight movie blog has been updated with a post by director Catherine Hardwicke. There’s a video on the ever changing Pacific Northwest weather.

Bella and Edward (dot) com has a new interview with Christian Serratos, Angela in the Twilight movie. The interview that Mike Welch gave to Sci-Fi World now appears on his MySpace as well. Catch up with all the actor interviews on our actor interview page.

One of the hottest movie rentals and purchases this summer is predicted to be Penelope. The DVD will contain a never seen before Twilight feature.  Summit Entertainment, the studio behind both movies, is leading a trend of independent studios in giving greater exposure of their films.


And finally, in case you were wondering if Rob Pattinson really can sing, really can play the guitar, we give you the following video. Thanks to Twilight Obsessed for the heads up.
There is some question that has arrisen as to if this footage was taken illegally. We have therefore removed it as a precaution.

    He’s actually pretty good. I mean, the guitar work isn’t that complex off the bat, but his strumming makes it a match for his voice. I’d pay to see him, even if he weren’t rob pattinson :)

    Oh yes, and go twilight! Can’t wait for Penelope to come out, and I really dig the summit video.

    :)

  2. O.o

    I love Robert. But he sounds drunk. It doesn’t even *sound* like Robert.

  3. One word: Wow.

  4. Actually, I change my mind.

    I’m listening to it again, and I completely change my mind. It’s actually pretty good. He sounds like a combination of Gavin Degraw, The Wallflowers (who are amazing), and Rob Thomas. But definitely a lot of The Wallflowers.

    Completely changed my mind. It’s amazing that I thought he was drunk. Wow. It’s really not bad at all, and I’m sorry for saying what I did.

    And HAHA I just noticed he says “sober now.” I think that’s extremely funny, considering I said he sounded drunk. HAHAHA. But yeah I was wrong. And I agree, I’d buy his music even if he wasn’t Robert Pattinson. It’s really great.

    he’s a little shaky. and it definitely doesn’t sound like robert pattinson’s normal low voice. but he can definitely sing, ill give him that, and i think hell be able to pull off singing for the movie.

  6. I completely forgot that Edward sings her to sleep. *meltymicmeltmelt* I can’t WAIT for the movie, omg. I hope they keep it in there.

  7. Ouch. His singing is just…ouch. Poor audience.

  8. He is hot but not the best singer. I imagined Edward having a more sexy singing voice…but whatever. Still love ya though! He is good at guitar. I hope the lullaby will be better lol.

  9. Yeah…well…I’ll pass on the singing too, at least from this song, but the talent is definitely there in the music. His guitar playing rocks. I’m guessing a softer, slower song would be better fittin’ for his voice.

  10. This song was just a bit of a weird style for most fans, I think… but listen again to the lower, softer register of Robert’s voice when he’s not shouting. Give him a slower, more romantic song where he can enunciate with a lot less twang and I think he’ll do an awesome job. This video does show that at the very least he has a terrific sense of rhythm, key and musical timing, which is more than you can say for a lot of actors!

    Well, I think that this video was taken a while ago, and technology has definately improved…… so i think some of the shaky parts were bad audio on the camera. He will be SENSATIONAL on sophisticated equipment! Icould tell he had a GREAT though! And I agree with amie…. his voice would sound REALLY good with a slower, softer song. :D I am SSSOOO excited for 12.12.08!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. xxxlondongirlxxx says:

    Hmmm.
    His guitar playing is awsome but his singing needs a bit more work.. O.O
    I still love him though. X-X

  13. Miss me, miss me, now you gotta bite me says:

    I must agree with kessie1122 and Nikki. The video didn’t have the best sound, but I’m POSITIVE that live, Rob would sound fantabulous! Also, NenaCullen’s opinion was true. I just wish it had better sound, beacause I KNOW Spunk can kick arse if he wants to.

    Though I must say, praise the sweet baby Jesus Bella’s Lullaby doesn’t have lyrics….sorry, Spunk.

  14. Charlie says:

    Theatre Actor, Film Actor, Athlete, Pianist…
    And then he throws THIS at us??

    “I am not very good at the guitar, but I am all right.”
    Yeah…okay Rob, you keep telling yourself that. haha.

    Well…He’s really got all his bases covered doesn’t he?

  15. OMG, I love Rob even more now, I love his singing and his awesome guitar skills I would total buy his music I LOVE YOU ROB

  16. Wow, not what I expected at all. He sounds like an old blues singer. It’s hard to connect that to what he looks like. But the song was beautiful. Does anyone know the title and writer?

  17. eager4 eternal damnation says:

    for those of you who dont like rob’s singing here – trust me, its just the video. he’s actually a pretty good singer =D
    but i’d probably drool over anything he does…LOL

    oh, and i couldnt get the video to load, so i watched it on youtube….it was really nice ^_^
    i keep liking nikki even more everytime i see her on a new video – weird how i had never even heard of her before….

  18. amy cullen =] says:

    uh ohhh my lord this video is heaven for me. as a major roberth lover i totally agree with most of yall.
    uhhh but sad day we cant see his gorgeous face.
    =[
    but his guitar playing is phonominal(????) haha
    but i really cant wait 35 days until breakind dawn or 6 months until the movie its torture for me.

    and darlings i will be there at the movie oppening at 12 AM in the morning release of the movie.
    =]
    WHOS WITH ME??!

  19. MareBear says:

    BACK UP off Rob! Sheesh. He didn’t ask everyone to pick his performance apart.

    Maybe there’s a reason he’s so vauge about his music during interviews….gosh.

  20. There was a reason that video has been out for months but no one has known about it. Rob didn’t want it out there. Jeez, so much for respecting his privacy.

  21. Nicole Loves Edward says:

    Rob is good at guitar. He definitely has a good voice, but that is not the right song for him…i picture him with a more… i guess calmer song would be the right word. If he tones it down a bit he would actually be really good. His voice is like from another decade of music, if that makes any sense.

  22. NenaCullen says:

    Emma: I think I agree with your concern with respecting other’s privacy, but in that video he is obviously at a public place and had not control over the broadcasting of the performance.
    Pretty much anything that is uploaded to youtube is fair game.

  23. some people seem to have a really weird take on the words “can’t sing”.
    of course he can sing!!! even if the sound was pretty lousy on the video you can still tell that!

    but i must admit his style (at least in that particular song) doesn’t sound at all like i imagine edward’s style.

  24. poor rob though, if he really didn’t want that video out there…

  25. I feel guilty after reading Emma’s comment, but alas, I’ll still put in my two cents.

    At first, I wasn’t too crazy about his singing (the guitar won me over immediately), but then I realized “dang! This kid has the lungs of life!” He really is amazing. He may not excel 100% at everything he does, but he’s modest about it, so that gives him an extra 10% at least. I’ll bet he sounds spectacular in person. You get an A+ Rob!

  26. does anyone know if the twilight ad on penelope is only on the dvd that is released in the usa?
    Or is it on the one in the uk too? because i think the pictures are different.

  27. and i LOVED the video about the weather

  28. Seriously, what the heck is wrong with people? If you don’t like his music, then just zip it. First of all, the video was supposed to be a secret and has nothing to do with Robert the actor. Then people say stupid things like ‘he sounds drunk’ and ‘he should stick to acting’. Charming. It’s funny how some people go out of the way to respect S.Meyer and her creative choices, but they can’t extend the same courtesy to Robert Pattinson.

    It’s a song recorded on a crappy device at an open mic night, with a bad mix. Deal with it.

  29. Jessica says:

    Okay, so I understand why some people may not like his music or voice but for an avid music listener I must say this is really really good.

    Its a blues/jazz melody almost indie feel to it, like Will Hoge and Chris Ayer. His playing of guitar is impressive and his voice is raw and just awesome! Also, not a lot of people can perform live like that and still sound like they have substance.

    Great, great, great!

  30. mademoiselle.cullen says:

    i want to see the videoo of robert playing and singing!
    where i can find it ?
    :(

  31. googlyeyes says:

    ok so i loved robs singing.. and i guess im the only watched the little trailer for the penelope movie and freaked out in the end when they mentioned twilight… it was just the letters but still. i got excited when i saw twilight all of a sudden. :)

  32. inlovewithtwilight says:

    I just want to say, if it’s not your thing that’s cool but I really don’t think it’s fair to say that he flat out can’t sing. It feels really blues-y to me which requires that raw and emotion filled voice. It’s suppossed to evoke feeling. You can clearly see he was feeling it. Has anyone heard of Glen Hansard from the movie “Once”. He sounds a lot like him. I for one think it was excellent. I can’t believe how amazing he is. Luck girl who catches him.

  33. JulesCullen says:

    Hmmm… I can’t really say how I feel about his singing. It’s quite possible that it was my speakers (they make everything sound a little strange) but his guitar sounded very nice. So I’m reserving my judgement until I hear him live… ummm… I don’t think it is going to happen anytime soon :(

  34. iluvtwilight says:

    can someone plz put up the link to the vid where rob sings they took it down im soo upset every one is talking about how he sings and that he is good but some of us cant even hear it now its lik they tease us and the twilight lexicon does that alot they put up videos ar pictures etc. and then take them down im verey upset !! why bother putting it up then if ur not gonna let ppl see it !! get ur facts straight first then post things!!!

  35. MRS>EDWARDCULLEN says:

    i didnt get to see it!!!! =(

  36. Crystal says:

    aww i wish had come on earlier :(

  37. Lena (germany) says:
  38. Crystal says:

    thanks lena!
    the video about the weather was fun!
    i really dont know how im going to make it till dec. 12th!!!
    i love how the penlope trailer mentions twilight
    lmao
    just goes to show twilight has taken over the movie world!!!!!!!
    and well i thought his guitar playing was amazing
    his singing on the other hand…wasnt quite what i expected

  39. Also adding to my comment before, the YT video was out of order. It was on YT before but under an alias. Because Robert really did not want anyone to hear his music. But obviously his privacy doesn’t matter, isn’t that what people say these days anyway?

  40. Is It Okay If I Put The New Interveiw Of Mike Newton On Our Twilight Myspace?

    Just E-mail Me.

    Thanks,
    Sam

  41. Crystal says:

    oh and i was just wondering ….. so around what time should the acutal trailer come out for the movie????

  42. haha i love the weather vidoe. its high-lirious….the actors seemed really annoyed about the weather!! i love Tyler’s comment about the filming!

  43. amy cullen :] I So agree with you I can’t wait 35 days ’til BD or 6 months for the movie!!!!!!!! As for Rob’s singing, I really think you guys are very judgemental. The song was just recorded on a really bad device. Give him a break.

    And I can’t wait for Penelope to come out so we can see that Twilight feature!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D

  44. That Greetings From Twilight video was awsome!!!!!! Nikki and Ashley are great!!!!! :D :D :D

  45. Rob’s amazing!
    You can feel the emotion in his music and he’s a great guitar player. I’d really love to hear him on the piano.

    And the Greetings from Twilight video was great! Even the little parts like when Kellan and Ashley are hugging. Aww! Definitely kept me smiling.

  46. Shelley says:

    This may already be mentioned.

    But if you want to see the video it is all over youtube. Such search under “Greetings from twilight” and you will be able to find it. The video is quiet adorable.

    P.S. The title of the video is “The Weather”

  47. Charlene says:

    OMG I LOVE PENELOPE! :)
    but i want to see the video even more!
    haha :)

  48. Instead of June to July, why can’t it be June to December?????????? :( :(

  49. I live in Scotland (Uk). Brought Penelope (How CUTE is Mcavoy? those blue eyes…) Anyway the Uk dvd edition DOES NOT have the Twilight feature. AT ALL!!! :( :(

  50. zoey cullen says:
