These are members of the pulchritudinous Quileute Nation out and about Vancouver recently– young BooBoo Stewart with a new haircut, Chaske Spencer and the rarely seen and very beautiful Tinsel Korey. She’s stunning.
BooBoo spent a few days working on set before heading out again after shooting the large wolf gathering scenes last week around the fire during which “Bella” hears the tale of Taha Aki and the Third Wife.
Also, oh la, Alex Meraz who doesn’t seem to be capable of taking a bad photo. I mean really, it’s like a photo shoot every time.
From E! Online's The Awful Truth:
Summit has us just where they want us. And by us, we mean Robsten fans, Twilight fans and the media.
See, Team Awful is planning on making an impromptu (totally!) trip up to Vancouver, B.C.,very shortly to do a little Eclipse snooping since everyone on set is MIA in the media and all mouths are on may-jah lockdown.
We put a call in to Summit to see if we could get any on-set access ('cause how much Twipimping do we do?), not to molest Robert Pattinson or anything, but just to observe a bit of how filming is going.
Let's just say they didn't say, "Ted and Taryn, come on down!" Two's company though, because we were told not even Oprah's being granted permission to visit the set. Swear. The Big O…zero access. It's friggin' nuts!
Well, don't forget:
We just happen to have more than a few besties who are already there, so no sweat! But really: It's smart on the studio's part to keep the media at bay, 'cause it gives them all the power. Which Summit knows, of course. Now that they have their Robsten situation totally in control, it's time to whip some journalists in line, too.
Here's what the suits have in store:
That incredibly bland ass-kissing rag People has been playing nice recently after the whole "Rob's Messy Love Life" debacle and is being graciously rewarded by at least one superexclusive New Moonpic for a Twi special they're putting together (on stands mid-October we hear).
"That's one reason why no one is allowed on the set of Eclipse," fesses Deep Twi. "It's time to get the emphasis off the third film and back on New Moon."
Please, as if any of us have forgotten? But in case you have, look for Us Weekly to have another specialTwilight edition out momentarily—only this time it's filled with paparazzi shots, or so we're told.
Hey Summit—Team Awful can play nice too (sorta). If we're extra good can we get any special photos? Or at least first rights when the Robsten sex-tape is released? We kid, we kid, but seriously...throw us a friggin' vampire bone! Right fans?

Here’s what Gossip Cop can confirm – the stars DID shoot, in Vancouver, a big feature story that as of now is slated for the magazine’s December cover.
From People Magazine.com:
Taylor Lautner may play a werewolf in the Twilight sequel New Moon, but he'd better prepare for some catcalls! In a photo from The Twilight Saga: New Moon: The Official Illustrated Movie Companion, a bulked-up Lautner, who plays Jacob Black, shows off his muscles while trying to win the affection of lovelorn Bella (Kristen Stewart), still reeling from her breakup with vampire boyfriend Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson).
For hungry fanpires counting the days till New Moon's Nov. 20 release, the tie-in book might prove the perfect thirst quencher. Due in stores on Oct. 6, it's filled with behind-the-scenes photos and tales from the film's cast and crew, providing a behind-the-scenes look at the making of New Moon.
For more exclusive New Moon photos, pick up this week's issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday.
The DVD board game (pictured) is slated for ages 14 and up, will cost about $30 and will available at all major retailers (in fact, you can already pre-order the game on Amazon.com). There was no news on how much the Wii or DS versions of the game will cost.
The Wii features will differ from those of the board game, which we discussed in our previous post. The Wii Scene It? version will contain over 500 multiple choice questions based on movie clips, music and audio (similar to how the board game works), but will have a new user interface. According to the press release, “the new Scene It? Twilight Wii version presents a new look and feel, giving fans a great reason to play both the Wii and the DVD boardgame versions.” We’re not sure what that could be, but we’re hoping its somewhere along the lines of different version of Edward shirtless and maybe the possibility of us virtually simulating the touching of his abs.
Scene It? Twilight for the Wii will incorporate the use of the Wiimote to buzz in, instead of the controllers the board game comes with. There will also be two new gameplay modes: single and multiplayer (you're already planning a firls sleepover now aren't you?) and new scoring systems.
Though there was no news on how the DS game will differ from either of the other formats (six months is still pretty far away), we’re assuming — like most Wii to DS games — its look and functionality will remain similar. So there you go, “Twilight” fans. Edward and Bella are coming to Nintendo products near you, and now you have a new reason to buy a Wii and DS.
Twilight screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg will definitely be finishing what she started when it comes to adapting the fourth and final book of the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn. Deep Twi tells us that, although it won't officially be confirmed for a while, Melissa is tapped to finish out the films.
Marc Malkin chatted with Melissa last week, and while she was playing very coy about BD plans (as well as Robsten), using the whole "everything is still up in the air" line, our well-placed source dishes that it's a done deal.
Like we assured all Twi-fans last month, the entire crew—Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, etc.—will also be back to grace the big screen for the fourth time, too.
So any director updates? And how exactly will the final movie be made?
"There are no formal plans yet," Deep Twi tells us.
Uh, well, want to know why that is? We've heard a bit of incredibly juicy info...
Execs over at Summit are going back to the idea of splitting BD into two films.
Remember, last time we checked in with Deep Twi it was looking like Dawn would only be one movie, but recently everyone internally has been referring to it as "the Breaking Dawn films." That's right, you didn't imagine the plural ending there.
Still, nothing has been decided yet. Most likely what's happening is Rob 'n' crew agreed to a fourth…not fifth. Once the cast determines if they are up for five, then Melissa can plan accordingly about how to pen out this fourth flick.
We're totally up in the air about what to think here. We kind of wanted to release the cast into the acting wild. No need to drag out this Twilight stuff, especially since they are doing it so quickly, 'cause things get old real fast in Hollywood.
But after hearing that Rosenberg is definitely doing the fourth film we are all about a fifth...but only if someone else writes that one.
The final book in the Twilight series is definitely the craziest—it's a departure from the previous three, for sure. Hell, Robsten finally do it, ya know? We're not sure if Melissa is up for this edgy script-writing. Breaking Dawn needs someone like Diablo Cody to stir things up, and while we're at it, why not have Taylor Lautner direct the fifth one! After all, that is what he wants to do.
Twi-fans, we know you're not the best with change, but come on. Don't you think we need someone like Cody to bring the badass out of Robsten?
Scoop from Lainey Gossip:
Beyond the big names like Death Cab for Cutie, Muse and Thom Yorke on the “New Moon” soundtrack, there are plenty of unfamiliar artists with songs on the album. Swedish pop singer Lykke Li is lucky enough to get track four on the CD with her song “Possibility.” Be jealous of her: she admitted on her Myspace blog that she like director Chris Weitz's brother Paul already got to see a cut of “New Moon” to inspire her to write a track for the album.
Like all the artists featured on the album, the song she recorded was unique to the film. But unlike the more established bands like The Killers and Bon Iver, Lykke has only been in the industry for about two years. Through sites like Myspace and YouTube, Lykke built up an audience in the United States when she made her second &8212; this time successful — trip across the Atlantic.
Last year MTV's Kurt Loder did a “Rising Star” feature on Lykke Li. Lykke, then 22, said it was thanks to her popularity on Youtube that she had a chance to return to the US. “That’s what got me here. Like, I have an audience before I have a record."
Lykke had made her first trip to overseas when she was 19, and she said she spent her time living in a coacroach-infested apartment in Brooklyn, learning English through improv classes and breaking out her singing career at open mic nights.
When her visa expired, she returned home to Stockholm where her father set her up with his old friend Björn Yttling of Peter Björn and John fame.
"He produced a lot of indie people — 'I hate myself' kind of music,” she said of her initial response to working with Björn. “I didn't know about Peter Björn and John. But I needed somebody to record me. And then we met, and it was a perfect match."
Together they released her first EP, Little Bit, which through the Internet became a hit. She has since released her first full length album, Youth Novels, in 2008. Yesterday, she wrote a post on Myspace about signing on for the "NM" soundtrack.
“I’m really proud of it and hope you will love it and need it. It’s kind of hard talking about it, cause it’s so open and obvious so my best tip is to actually listen to it when you get a chance. Lay down on a bed and just listen my love,” she said on her blog. “Love is a serious matter when it’s real. It’s blood and it’s death. But it's also life, ain't no other way around it.”
Ashley Greene gave an exclusive interview to Saturday Night Magazine in which she speaks about New Moon and the craze surrounding Robert Pattinson.
What do you make of this Robert Pattinson craze? It’s starting to get to the point where the pandemonium is putting him in dangerous situations. What’s your take on that?
It’s sad for Rob! It’s a hard thing because we absolutely adore our fans, and he does too, and they helped us get to where we are now so you have to be thankful for that. I applaud him – with my fan encounters, there’s a process. It’s kind of like this chisel effect where there’s one and then it’s two and then it’s five, so I was kind of able to ace it. But he got slapped with 25,000 screaming girls so I definitely think he’s taking it in stride. They love him so much and I know they don’t want to hurt him, but people just don’t realize that when they’re that many people coming with a force, it can be very dangerous sometimes.
A Summit Entertainment spokesperson came to Gossip Cop with answers:
- There will be an event on October 22 at the Rome Film Festival like there was last year, and the studio will screen some footage like the Comic-Con pieces and on-set b-roll.
- “There will probably be one ‘new’ scene [to be determined] just prior to talent introductions and audience Q&A,” says the spokesperson.
- The rep went on to say that Summit “will have more details in the coming days.” And we’ll be right here to let you in on them.

Could this be for a dream sequence when Bella is a vamp??? I think it might be Alice's vision when Aro needs proof of Bella being turned!
-- Post From My iPhone
According to a recent press release, too, fans should expect to see some New Moon-inspired goodies at their local Burger King right around the film's release this November!
“Curiosity among fans has continued since our exclusive ‘New Moon’-themed BK® Crowns hit the Comic-Con scene in San Diego in late July,” said Cindy Syracuse, senior director, cultural marketing, Burger King Corp. “While full promotional details are still to come, we can confirm that beginning Nov. 16, BURGER KING® restaurants will offer guests access to a number of limited-edition, movie-themed offers and merchandise.”
The soundtrack also gathers together a collection of less well-known artists with a ton of indie cred. St. Vincent (real name Annie Clark) — who has been making a name for herself with solo albums and collaborations with Sufjan Stevens — hooked up with Bon Iver's Justin Vernon for the track "Rosyln."
"He sings in his beautiful falsetto and I'm actually singing very, very low," Clark told MTV News. "I think there's something vampirey and creepy about the two of us singing together. It's a simple, stripped-down kind of song. It's really elegant and beautiful."
Clark and Vernon had been talking about collaborating together for a while, and when Vernon wrote "Rosyln," neither he nor Clark had any idea the track would end up on the "New Moon" soundtrack. "We recorded the song for the joy of it, and then it looked like the 'Twilight' people were interested in using the song for the movie," she explained. "So it pretty naturally happened."
Unlike with the original soundtrack, all the music on "New Moon" is original and exclusive to the soundtrack.
While Clark has only just joined the "Twilight" family, she's been familiar with the books since she kept spotting them in the hands of her older sisters and counts herself as a fan of the movie. Her true pop-culture supernatural allegiance, though, belongs not to vampires or werewolves but to the occult, as a result of her teenage obsession with "The Craft," the Neve Campbell-starring flick about suburban witches.
"We were influenced to be vaguely goth — still mainstream but, like, mall-clothes goth," she laughed. "It was awesome!"
With her recollection of another teen-driven movie soundtrack — the 1996 adaptation of "Romeo + Juliet" starring Leonardo DiCaprio — Clark can relate to the impact and influence of music introduced to kids through cinema. "I loved that album," she said. "You swear by those things and you discover bands you wouldn't have if you hadn't had this more digestible album.
Clark is gearing up for a monthlong U.S. tour alongside Andrew Bird that kicks off in Indianapolis and has her swinging through the Midwest, into the South and through the East Coast, ending in Washington, D.C. She'll be in Cleveland when the "New Moon" soundtrack drops on October 20 and, as the European leg of her tour kicks in, at a festival in the Netherlands during the November 20 release of the film.
Just don't expect Clark to bust into her "New Moon" song during one of the live shows. "I think performing 'Rosyln' requires Justin and me in the same room together."
Kristen Stewart has clearly decided she’s team Edward, but you’ll have to decide for yourself…are you “Team Edwards, Stand by Your Vampire,” or “Team Jacob Because Edward Bites?”
The Twilight cast is in Vancouver filming the third movie in the installment, Eclipse, but we’d love to catch them out in these shirts!
