'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse' Soundtrack Hanging Tough On Billboard 200

'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse' OST - Summit Ent./Atlantic Records
The official motion picture soundtrack for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is sitting tough on the Billboard Top 200 list, resting at third place and considered the "greatest gainer" for the week of July 17, 2010.
The Eclipse soundtrack has been on the Top 200 for four consecutive weeks, waffling betwee a start in second place, a drop to sixth and the tenth, and now back up to third.
MTV wrote about the Eclipse soundtrack's continued success, noting that the number of units sold to achieve said gain were 65,000 (up 69%).
Chances are, the Eclipse soundtrack enjoyed a nice gain coming off of the film's theatrical release last week.
It's worth noting that The Twilight Saga: New Moon's official soundtrack debuted at number two on its first week on the chart (the week of October 31, 2009), jumped to number one the following week, and dropped to number eight (then ten for two weeks and back up to eight after the film's release). As such, Eclipse's heavy rise on the chart coming off of the film release is significant. Perhaps it has something to do with all of those well-placed songs?

Kristen Stewart Spotted Leaving The Bobby Long Concert At The Troubador In LA Last Night




Opting to enjoy a rare night out on the town, Kristen Stewart kicked off her weekend by paying a visit to Troubadour club in West Hollywood on Friday (July 9).
Doing her best to go unnoticed, the Bella Swan beauty took cover alongside a security staffer as she headed to a nearby car following a performance by musician pal Bobby Long.

The sighting comes just after it was revealed by Summit Entertainment that “Breaking Dawn" will be filmed in both Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Vancouver, Canada beginning this fall.
To be released as two separate films, the first installment of "Breaking Dawn" is slated to hit theaters on November 18, 2011 with no set release date for the final Twilight Saga film.
