I’m a geek. If you’ve ever me (Laura) there would be little doubt in your mind. Part of my geekdom, is that I loved the game Mastermind. I got it when I was around 12 or so. I’ve always been a sucker for logic games. So the makers of Mastermind had a Mastermind tournament going backstage at the Teen Choice awards and several Twilight stars: Justin Chon, Charlie Bewley,Kiowa Gordon, Bronson Pelltier played. Watch the video and the final rankings to find out which Twilight star won!
Booboo and Fivel Stewart were on the Teen Choice red carpet working with Invisalign. They asked celebrities who they thought should win the Teen Choice Best Smile Award (it was won later that night by Taylor Lautner) and what personally makes them smile. They spoke with Justin Chon, Charlie Bewley, Bronson Pelletier, Alex Meraz, and Kiowa Gordon.
Around the country the Eclipse cast appeared at various Twilight night events sponsored by Summit and Moviefone. Usually in outdoor settings, you could watch Twilight and New Moon back-to-back for free. Here is some of that coverage.
San Diego featured Peter Facinelli and Christian Serratos with hosts Jenna Bush, Quddus, and Myriam from MSN Superfan.
Boston had Booboo Stewat and Tinsel Korey who braved flight cancellations to get there!
The Lexicon’s own Nena Cullen was in Salt Lake City to see Charlie Bewley and Julia Jones. Nena writes, “So this was an impromptu- spur of the moment decision, to go down to the park hauling my 2 month old with me. When I got there I realized my camera didn’t have a lot of charge, so I had to take pictures with no flash to at least last me for a few pictures. As you well know, both Julia and Charley were awesome. They hugged and signed almost everybody there…only about 200-300 people showed up. It was at this huge park…they seemed to be having a great time.Summit gave some keychains, buttons, pens and make up, posters and some other stuff for free. Moviephone had a picture booth, popcorn stand, face painting stand and a twimom/Alex’s lemonade stand. Movies started around 8pm.

“The priority for me was to first and foremost please the fanbase. How do you do that? You capture what Stephenie created to the best of your ability. So having Stephenie on set was an enormous help. Her approval meant more to me than anything. If she likes what you are doing with the character she created, you are on the right track. I respect film critics in what they do, but with what that said, and particularly in this case, I think that this franchise is accomplishing what it set out to do, which is to please the fans, ” Welch says.
