EW Article

According to the Twilight Saga website, Entertainment Weekly has scored Stephenie’s first breaking Dawn interview in their upcoming issue.  We’ve been given permission to repost a scan of the cover here.  Look for this Twilight EW on magazine stands July 18th. Edit: I have conflicting info on the date this hits newstands. It may be this Friday that you can get it. No matter what it’s definitely coming, just some data I have says this Friday and some next Friday. Now further clarified on all sides to be this Friday hitting newsstands. LOL, even the pros make mistakes sometimes.

Movie Features

The Movie Fanatic has a special up on Nikki Reed.


Netflix Customers might want to be careful opening their latest DVD rentals.  The inside flap of recent Netflix shipments contains a Twilight ad featuring the movie poster image.  Check out this awesome mailbox suprise sent to us by Hazel:


Exclusive Twilight Movie 2009 Calendar Image!

The folks at Borders promised us something good for Wednesday (OK technically it’s 11:45pm Tuesday, but they said we could go ahead a little early), and I’d say they managed it. Read it in their own words:

Borders is pleased to announce the exclusive release of the 2009 Twilight Movie Calendar, on sale August 2, 2008.

When you can live forever, what do you live for?  Answer – A 16 month calendar featuring Bella, Edward & their Forks’ friends! This Borders exclusive calendar is the ONLY calendar available for the theatrical adaptation of Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight which comes to life for the 2009 year.

Borders is very excited to share with Lexicon readers a look at the calendar’s cover and a First Look at of one of the calendar pages inside!

The Twilight Movie calendar is available for reserve on Borders.com here* and will first be available for purchase at Borders & Waldenbooks stores during the release of Breaking Dawn at the “Twilight til Dawn” midnight parties.

*Note as I posted this, I noticed the the Borders site was having tech glitches. The link is correct, they just are working a few kinks out.

We are currently experiencing a server problems where the scans are. I this is a wild surprise, but I’m thinking the volume of people hitting the scans may have crashed it. I’ll see what I can do.  I think I fixed it for now; I guessed right it was a volume thing.

In answer to other questions, I checked with Borders, the calendar starts in September 2008 and runs through December 2009.

As for availability, according to Borders you can reserve a copy at the time you reserve your books, and it will be be available in the US and US territories. They are getting back to us on international availability in the countries where they have stores.
