Last night visitors to Twilight fansites got to see a preview of Eclipse right across from where the cast was taping the Jimmy Kimmel show. Well, here’s what happened according to some of the Lexicon’s representatives:
“Thank you soooo much!!! We had Dakota, Peter, Elizabeth and I think Xavier in person show up at the theater.
Rob, Kristen and Taylor were on a live feed at the Jimmy Kimmel show (which is across the street from the Chinese 6). Someone shouted, “Rob come here” and he repeated it so they heard us!!! We were about 15 minutes or so into the movie when the screen went blank… and they said there was some difficulties and them Jimmy K. shows on our screen. That’s when they introduced R, K and T…. then the others came out in front of the audience.
Thanks again for a very memorable night!!!! Can’t wait to see this movie again and again!!!”
“It was great; you’re going to love it!! Thanks SO much @twilightlexicon for the opportunity to see Eclipse tonight. *HUGS* @DAVID_A_SLADE You are a genius, sir. I bow to you!!! Thank you for making such an AMAZING film. XO.”
After the cast visit and the shout out from the Kimmel show fans from various fansites and their webmasters got to see the movie. Alphie gave her review of Eclipse about two weeks ago, which the rest of the admin team agrees with. We got to see the movie on Friday in IMAX. Here’s what other fans had to say coming out of the show (done under the cut to save people who are trying to be spoiler free)
Matt Britton of Twilight Source: “Just saw Eclipse! It was epic on so many levels. The best film so far. The fight scenes were perfect! Now bed time..”
Amanda Bell of Twilight Examiner: “Eclipse was made for and with Twilight fans in mind. When David Slade said it was our love letter, he was telling the truth. Most shockingly delightful #Eclipse performance award goes to Kellan Lutz. Well done. The big three were impeccable. Kristen was so so good. Rob was very convincing, and Taylor was outstanding. about 4 hours ago via webJackson was amaaaaaazing. Also, he and Ashley had insane chemistry in this one. You know what? I can’t think of anyone who didn’t kill it.”
Kimmy of His Golden Eyes: “Acting has improved. Edward/Bella scenes = amazing. Even if you are team Edward x100 theres a Jacob scene that will make you teary.The wigs were fine. Last thing I’ll say: Perfect blend of action and romance. :)”
Alison of TwiFans: “I just wanted to let every1 know that there were no cheesy moments in Eclipse. No joke. There are laughs, but never cheese in Eclipse. Flashbacks so freaking cool. Wish Rosalie’s was longer cause it was so good. Wolves look awesome. Bella & Jacob wolf interaction was so sweet. Renee & Bella scene made me tear up. I was surprised by that.”
Pel Twilight Lexicon: “I’m not really an IMAX person. I thought oh no, I’m going to have a raging headache after this. Well, having seen it in IMAX…GO SEE IT IN IMAX…OMG…amazing visuals, and the acting. There isn’t a single weak link. Everyone kicked it up a notch!”
Kaleb Nation of Twilight Guy: “Just got out of Eclipse! I loved ”Twilight” but Eclipse is now my FAVORITE.
Edward vs. Victoria was an EPIC VAMP BATTLE!”
Britten of Twilight Moms: ” Jackson/Ashley dripped with awesome sauce. Taylor was outstanding in New Moon but he is takes it 10 levels higher in Eclipse.”
Heidi of Twilight Facebook: “Let me just say you guys will LOVE Eclipse”
Lauren, Twilight Facebook: “Just got out of ‘Eclipse’! It was AMAZING. Thank you @DAVID_A_SLADE for really bringing out the best of this book and movie.”
