Pics From TwiDazzledGal's Trip to Forks and La Push

Welcome to Forks!

The Forks sign on the other side of town used in the Twilight movie.

Bella's truck located at the Chamber of Commerce. It's even got Bella and Edward in the windows.

Forks High School. The sign is looking a little worn out!

Forks Hospital.

Dr. Carlisle Cullen gets his own reserved parking space there apparently.

La Push, baby!

James Island at First Beach in La Push.

First Beach!

So...Forks had SO many Twilight fans wandering around. I have mixed feelings about this. It's probably good for business, which this town wouldn't otherwise see, but I also got the distinct impression that other people might resent the whole craze.

The La Push beaches, on the other hand, were absolutely beautiful!!! Does this make me Team Jacob now? Nope, because Edward didn't actually live "in town" (which is probably a good thing in this case). Phew!

Sorry for the crappy quality pictures. The iPhone is great for blogging, but not picture taking. Will post better pics when I'm home on the 31st!

David Slade Tweets About First Week of Eclipse Filming

From the Twilight Examiner:

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse director David Slade has brought to the Twilight fan community a whole new look into the production process behind the third leg in the Twilight series films - Twitter.

Between early teases of filming locations and promoting charitable campaigns, Slade has used his Twitter account to connect with fans of the Twilight series in a way unlike any director yet.

His latest tweet, especially, reveals a lot about Eclipse.
Said Slade:

Wrapped first week, probably most challenging week of our shoot. Last night Xavier Samuels delivered a[n] astonish[ing] power performance, all good."

The scenes being filmed last night, like the night before, must have included Xavier Samuel, Bryce Dallas Howard, and other newborn vampires. Could it have been the infamous fight scene, though? Or at least Samuels' portion?

Summit Entertainment: Talk Of Fifth Twilight Film Premature

From Access Hollywood:

LOS ANGELES, Calif. --

New “Eclipse” cast member BooBoo Stewart sent the Twi-hards into a frenzy on Friday when he told Access Hollywood there would be two more movies in the “Twilight Saga” after the third chapter, “Eclipse.”

However, a rep for Summit Entertainment – the studio behind the hit vampire film franchise – has now told Access that BooBoo (who will join the big screen saga as wolfpack member Seth Clearwater in the next installment) was premature in his statements.

Although BooBoo has contract options for additional films after “Eclipse,” there are no guarantees yet that those films will be made.

And while a fourth film in the series is likely since there were four books in the popular Stephanie Meyer’s series, the studio could not confirm “Breaking Dawn” would make it to the big screen just yet.

“New Moon,” the second film in the series, will hit theaters on November 20. Filming on the third chapter, “Eclipse,” began earlier this month in Vancouver.

“Eclipse” will hit theaters in North America on Wednesday, June 30, 2010.

Eclipse Filming Moving Full Steam Ahead

From the Twilight Lexicon and the reknowned Twilight set-stalker Malicious Mandy's blog:

It’s always interesting when franchise movies change directors. Everyone has something new to bring to the project. So far from what we can tell as the casual observer, David Slade seems to be plowing ahead with efficiency while maintaining a sense of humor.

In the last couple of days, sets in very different locations have gone up in the afternoon, have had shooting done at night, and by mid morning all traces are gone. Quite impressive. At the same time, after undergoing what is obviously a long night of shooting, David had tweeted to fans about a joke picture he took with the prop guys.

Malicious Mandy, talks about seeing this uber organization first hand, where a scene under a bridge involving Bryce Dallas Howard and Xavier Samuel was done in a heartbeat, while still having attention to detail.

“I was not at all surprised to see NOTHING left…

I know lot’s of people don’t have sets in their own backyard but shooting a scene takes tons of time, money, people and equipment…

I am so impressed so far with how “on the ball” David Slade is.

I remember when I met him outside Blue Water Cafe for the Cast Party at the end of New Moon. He stopped to chat with me and to clear the air about the things he had previously said about Twilight Saga…. he was cordial and really quite sweet… and short… but anyways…. so far this director has been in and out of multiple sets using perfect locations and just hammering it out quick and easy…

So yes, when I saw nothing at under the bridge today I was not shocked… David Slade and his crew are good – really good!”

Mandy also mentions some of the craziness that is happening on the local Vancouver air waves and in the print media.

“Last night, we stumbled upon this set while re-visiting a previous set used for New Moon. We were excited to see another live set but did not stay long as they quickly blocked the view with several screens and large trucks…I had been texted a few seconds earlier by a friend saying “some dumb broad called the radio and claimed they would tell everyone where the set was after the break”…I have actually had massive arguements with people about publicizing set locations when you can’t control who hears… meaning crazy people hear and show up and act – well… crazy!)”

Say It Isn't So - Twilight Action Figures, Cardboard Cutouts & Dolls

I should have kept my mouth shut when thinking they had gone overboard with the game. Now you can get Twilight action figures, dolls and your very own life-size Edward cardboard cutout. Right...

Chris Weitz & Family Spotted Out On Friday, More Deets on NM Screening

From Lainey Gossip again (she's getting the most accurate and up to date info because she lives in Vancouver FYI):

"Twilight cast and crew were over Vancouver yesterday (Thursday) – Dakota Fanning arrived and did some shopping downtown and her onscreen vampire bff and local BC boy Cameron Bright was also spotted heading out of a White Spot. Triple O! New Moon director Chris Weitz spent time with his beautiful wife (now that is a gorgeous face), a family outing, enjoying the world famous Vancouver Japa Dog in the afternoon.

Weitz was asked about the private screening for the cast etc that took place last weekend. It was a rough, unedited cut of New Moon. No score, obviously still requiring a lot of work. But he talked passionately about how impressed he was with his young actors. That they could all stand up next to the veterans he’s worked with. Said they were all amazing, surprised at how well they performed, and singled out Taylor Lautner as the one with the most potential out of them all.

About A Boy is one of my favourite movies. And Weitz did a kick ass job with the look of The Golden Compass. If New Moon the film combines the warmth of About A Boy and the spectacular of TGC, no doubt it’ll easily bury the budget cheese that was Twilight."

Eclipse Co-Star, BooBoo Stewart, Confirms Breaking Dawn Into Two Films???

Say it isn't so. Summit the cash cow would do something just like this and I will hate them for it if this turns out to be true! From Access Hollywood:

"New “Twilight Saga” cast member Boo Boo Stewart has some big news for fanpires.

“I heard there’s going to be three more movies,” he told Access Hollywood’s Laura “Dish of Salt” Saltman in a new interview. “‘Eclipse,’ ‘Breaking Dawn,’ and there should be one more.”

The star’s rep also noted the additional films when Boo Boo’s casting was announced to Access.

“Boo Boo Stewart will play the character Seth Clearwater in the next three installments of the wildly popular ‘Twilight’ film franchise based on the best-selling novels by Stephenie Meyer,” the rep said in a statement.

Only three movies in the series, “Twilight,” “New Moon” (due Nov. 20) and “Eclipse” have been confirmed by Summit Entertainment, who did not return calls when contacted by Access regarding news of the additional films."

Victoria & Riley Eclipse Filming Detaila From Thursday Night

From Lainey Gossip we've got some pics and scoop on filming last night:

"Last night the Twilight Eclipse crew was back to work shooting under a bridge a “Seattle” scene with Bryce Dallas Howard and Xavier Samuel as “Victoria and Riley”. Victoria seduces Riley so that he’ll carry out her orders to make new vampires. As you can see, they’ve wigged out Bryce’s hair to resemble Rachelle Lefevre’s."

We've got some more pics from the barn scene filming on Wednesday night for Eclipse. Speculation is that this might be the newborn hideout. These are the first pics that reveal Peter, Jasper's friend in the flashbacks. He's played by actor Kevin Zegers. There are also pics of Stephenie Meyer on set (la dee dah).

Get Your Robert Fix - New Photos Leaked From Photoshoot

OME. No one is quite sure what these photos are for other than that they are new and for an upcoming magazine. Here's my theory: Rob did a photoshoot earlier this summer for a supposed Vanity Fair cover this fall. I'm gonna stick with that! These might top the awesome photos from the GQ covershoot earlier this year.

You can check out more photos at!

New Alice Cullen Photo Still From New Moon

Dakota Fanning Arrives in Vancouver & Details on a Bella Vamp Transformation

Dakota Fanning arrived in Vancouver today for Eclipse shooting. It sounds like David Slade is shooting very out of order, which is normal, because Jane only appears at the end of Eclipse.

Also, here's some scoop from Lainey Gossip about a potential Bella vamp transformation that Kristen was trying out looks for:

"Dakota Fanning arrived back in Vancouver today to work on Eclipse. Looked happy and excited, signed autographs for fans.

As already mentioned, Vancouver is now a hotspot for LA based paps, numbering over 20 as of today with 7 new arrivals. Is that legal? Kristen Stewart hit up the hair salon yesterday and was followed by 10 cars, and they waited for her outside to come out. The LA pap style is the scrum. There’s a difference between the scrum and the long lens. Most celebrities, obviously, with the exception of Ebola and Jessica Biel who aren’t so discerning because they just want to be seen, period, prefer the long lens, from across the street, so that they can walk undisturbed, which is why last Spring, before the arrival of so many photogs from so many agencies, Kristen and her costars were able to stroll around downtown without security.

But it’s also about supply and demand. The fans want more and more photos. The paps are delivering.

As for what Kristen was doing at the salon – am told exclusively that they were testing out a look, something to do with a transformation, not just her hair, but makeup and costuming too. As a vampire.

And there’s more exclusive information for you Twilight fans who’ve written such lovely messages lately in an attempt to balance out the hate – thank you! This is also a charitable gift for Old Lady Tour, even though you use information without crediting, which amounts to plagiarism, and even though you are often so embarrassingly wrong on your details, so much so that we have to keep doing your job for you, we’ll help you out because we can. We know you won’t thank us though. We are used to this.

It was a night shoot on Wednesday, the 3rd day of filming.

It took place in a barn. News spread on Twitter and fans and paps showed up and stayed out late.

The actors involved were: Jackson Rathbone, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Robert Pattinson, and Ashley Greene.

“Jasper and Maria” were back in the old days training with their army. Jasper agonises over a task he’s ordered to perform involving a newborn.

The “Edward and Alice” scene was from a vision, a memory from when he was inside Aro’s head…

More to come…"

A Note From Twi-Dazzled Gal & Yet Another EW Outtake

We've got yet another outtake from last year's Twilight Entertainment Weekly photoshoot!

And now a note from Twi-Dazzled Gal:

I'm heading off on vacation starting today until August 30th to Washington State and Alaska. I will do my best to bring you blog updates on a daily basis, however they won't be as frequent (I'm thinking once or twice a day at best). Not sure what my cell phone signal is going to be like cruising Alaska, so if I get really desperate an internet package may be necessary on the cruise. Please continue to check back for updates and you can also follow me on Twitter at TwiDazzledGal where I'll be tweeting when I'm unable to update the blog.

I'll be visiting Forks and LaPush on Saturday, August 22nd, so stay tuned for blog updates with pics from some of your favorite Twilight locations!!! (Mr. TDG is thrilled about visiting these places...haha.)

I will be back in the full-swing of blogging on August 31st, so prepare yourselves to be inundated for the first few days while I catch up!


Eclipse 'Barn Scene' Revealed - Filming Details, Photos & Videos

Here's the run-down on what was going on in Langley, Vancouver, BC last night on the set of Eclipse!

RobPattzNews has the details on what was filmed:

"Eclipse set update: It's a wrap. A barn, two vamps (not confirmed which ones) hear flashback scene. Pics and videos later."

Thirsty for more? Here's what the Twilight Examiner had to say:

Last night, on the set of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, many on-lookers snapped photographs and videos of the production crew setting up a big, red barn.

The consensus seems to be that the scene beign shot involves two vampires in some sort of dream sequence. Most agree that this is probably related to Jasper (Jackson Rathbone) and his experience with the character Maria (which has been cast with Catalina Sandino Moreno).

About a month ago, Eclipse director David Slade used his Twitter to tease fans about potential filming locations for the newborn hideout and battlefield. While the recipe for those sequences might not call for a barn, it is indeed a possibility.

If it is Jasper's backstory that the barn is being used for, though, there are a few select sequences to choose from. Obviously, Jasper's transformation is a definite possibility, as Maria is responsible for that handiwork. Also, the Southern Wars - battle sequences in which Jasper learns to fight and winds up protecting Maria against her many newborns - are a potentiality. The fact that Rathbone has been taking horseback riding lessons, perhaps, might be the deal-sealer on that conclusion.


You can also see Malicious Mandy's Langley videos from the set here and check out tons more photos here of the barn scene.

Here are some other videos from the set courtesy of Twilight Gossip:

Eclipse Filming Details For Wednesday & Thursday This Week

All right obsessed vampire stalkers (like that Midnight Sun reference?), here's the scoop on filming details for Eclipse this week!

Lainey Gossip shared the following info on filming today:

Meanwhile my sources tell me exclusively that the second day of filming involved a Quileute Village and a scene from 300 years ago.

TDG Note: In case you need an Eclipse refresher (I know I do), this is the scene that takes place when Bella joins Jacob and the wolfpack for storytime and she hears the tale of the "Third Wife." Remember, this story is where she gets the idea to slit her wrist with a shard of rock at the end of Eclipse when Victoria and Edward are fighting.

Perez Hilton had the following:

Alright, listen up you vampire hunters. We know most of you are up in Vancouver right now, scouring the city for any sign of the hottness of Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, and Kellan Lutz. We got a tip for you that might help you in your search.

Look out for any production signs that bear the letters "TSE" (That'sTwilight Saga: Eclipse, for those not in the know.)

Locate those letters, and you might just be stumbling onto the holy grail of Twilight fandom!

But now, if you're up for a bit of a travel, we happen to know of some actual Twilight production shooting going on tonight in Langley. It started this afternoon, and is anticipated to go all night!

So get to hunting, Twi-Hards, and if you spot any sparkling vampires, be sure to tell'em we sent ya. And then send us the pics!

Lastly, the Vancouver Sun spilled the beans big time:

VANCOUVER — Twilight fans are busy twittering about film shoot location possibilities, as the third film in the series began shooting in the Vancouver area this week.

Production details for Eclipse, which began shooting here Monday and is projected to wrap Oct. 31, are so top secret that the film is being shot under a code name.

Well, we’ve broken the code. Vampire lovers on the Twilight trail should be looking for production signs bearing the letters TSE — the insiders-only name used for the production of Eclipse.

New Moon used USM, which stood for Untitled Sports Movie to disguise its locations.

This working title, TSE (presumably for Twilight Saga: Eclipse) is listed on the Directors Guild of Canada website.

The cloak-and-dagger approach is supposed to throw vamp-fans some garlic and keep them off the scent, but Twilight lovers were already twittering about it earlier this week.

The operation is so covert, even top Vancouver casting people aren’t getting the locations and call times for actors until hours before.

What we do know from our sources is that cast and crew had a call to show up in Langley late Wednesday for an all-night shoot. (They are vampires, after all.)

The shoot moves to Vancouver on Thursday.

Holy Robsten Hotness!!! New Pic From New Moon!

Now that's what I'm talking about!!! Let's hope we find a clearer one soon. That puts any Bella & Taylor photos to shame. Now if only we could get rid of all the puppy promo...

Thanks to Robsten Lovers for the pic.

New Moon Hottie Overload - Pics of Kellan Lutz, Jackson Rathbone & Xavier Samuel in Vancouver

Can you handle all the hotness? Some of our favorite vamps were spotted out and about in Vancouver yesterday!

I am loving Jackson since he ditched those awful glasses he was sporting at the Teen Choice Awards.

Kellan has decided to turn the cameras on the paparazzi!

Team Riley anyone? He's a cutie. Wonder if I should check if he's 18 or older first (you know who you ladies are that are lusting after Taylor...sickies)! ;-)

Thanks to Eclipse for the pics!
