Robert Pattinson’s Edward Cullen is confronted by Taylor Lautner’s Jacob in this scene from David Slade’s upcoming The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.
"You have to consider the idea that I might be better for her than you are." The "her" here, of course, is Kristen Stewart’s Bella Swan, who in order to become one with Edward will have to undergo, let’s say, a radical transformation.
Needless to say, Pattinson/Edward isn’t too happy about what Jacob has just told him, but at the same time it’s clear that he believes — at least to a certain extent — that what Jacob is saying has some truth to it.
This is a great shot because it shows how Pattinson acts with his eyes. It’s all there. The fear, the pain, the danger, and the hatred (would this be too strong a word?) for his rival.
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse could well be the best movie in the series to date. I do hope Summit hasn’t "played it safe," thus allowing Slade and his actors — Pattinson, Stewart, Lautner, Bryce Dallas Howard, and the others — to give it all.
