Taylor Lautner Calls 'Eclipse' The Most 'Guy-Friendly' 'Twilight' Film

Taylor Lautner is fast becoming a go-to young Hollywood actor for demanding action roles. He's about to start filming "Abduction," a Jason Bourne-style thriller, and has lined up two action-heavy flicks — "Stretch Armstrong" and "Cancun" — further down the line. Plus he signed up for, then parted ways with, "Max Steel," a superhero movie in which he would have played a kid imbued with the power of nanobots.

The 18-year-old, in short, digs action. It's no surprise, then, that when it comes to picking his favorite film in the "Twilight" series, he's going with the upcoming "Eclipse" — the one that ratchets up the action in a way Twilighters have not yet seen.

Kristen Stewart: Twilight "Definitely" Connects to Real-Life Virgins; Does Robert Pattinson Agree?

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson's Eclipse characters, Bella and Edward, essentially have three or so movies of virginal eternal longing for each other; they never quite go all the way (except in Breaking Dawn, which Melissa Rosenberg swears she's penning as quite sexy...but more on that later).

Kellan Lutz, Ashley Greene, and Jackson Rathbone talk action.

As part of this weekend's press junket in Los Angeles, California, Access Hollywood got to speak with "Cullen family" actors Kellan Lutz, Ashley Greene, and Jackson Rathbone.

In the interview, the three revealed that the most difficult scenes to film in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse weren't the action-oriented ones but rather those scenes where they were in dialogue with several other cast members.

Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson & Taylor Lautner Talk Love Tangles.

The third Twilight film, Eclipse, is essentially centered on the love triangle of Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson's characters, in which Team Edward (R.Pattz) vs. Team Jacob (Lautner) is finally resolved.

While it makes for good entertainment on the big screen, the stars of the film say they could do without the drama that comes along with threesomes, thank you very much.

Twilight Saga Eclipse Behind The Scene Footage.

Some behind-the-scenes footage from The Twilight Saga: Eclipse has made its way online via

The raw footage comes from a B-Roll provided to media that offers a raw look at the cast and crew filming scenes, before green screens are erased and special effects added. You'll get to see David Slade directing his cast and all the stars including Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Dakota Fanning filming scenes you've seen in clips but now get to see from a new fly-on-the-wall perspective.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse hits theaters on June 30.


Eclipse' Riley And Bree Video Clip.

A brand new clip from The Twilight Saga: Eclipse has been revealed, and this time it's Riley and Bree that are featured.

You've already seen the moment when Bree (Jodelle Ferland) looks up to Riley (Xavier Samuel), clutching her throat and saying "What did you do to me?"

Dakota Fanning Loves Being Evil In ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’

Dakota Fanning – who portrays cruel vampire Jane in the blood-sucking Twilight – admits she liked being able to transport herself into a nasty character.

She told NY1 television, “She definitely takes pleasure in using her power which is inflicting pain on others, which is not a normal thing! So yeah it was cool to get to transform myself into more of an evil character which I haven’t done before.”

The teen star also confesses acting is the only career for her, but she will continue with her education while she works.

Edward And Jacob Face Off.

Robert Pattinson’s Edward Cullen squares off against Taylor Lautner’s Jacob Black in Twilight Saga: Eclipse. This looks like a follow-up to a previously released photo featuring Pattinson, Lautner, and Kristen Stewart’s Bella Swan. (Click on the photo to enlarge it.)

I’m not really sure which scene this is supposed to be. The Edward vs. Jacob confrontation set in the school parking lot, which was recently seen in a clip shown at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, is totally different in terms of ambiance, lighting, and clothing.

In the novels, of course, Jacob is much bigger than Edward. He’s 6′5" or something like that. Perhaps even taller by the time Breaking Dawn comes to a close. Obviously, that’s not the case in the movie adaptations. But I think that makes Jacob a more believable match for Bella — and thus more of a threat to Edward.


Robert Pattinson: Eclipse Is Different, More Serious.

Many "Twilight" fans are expecting a darker film with more action, but plenty of romance between Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and her various supernatural suitors when "Eclipse" hits theaters on June 30. But "Twilight" enthusiasts who haven't braced themselves for a different experience should consider themselves warned: Leading man Robert Pattinson revealed to MTV News that the threequel absolutely takes a more serious tone.

"I've seen a very early cut," Pattinson said at the . "It's good. It's different. It's really different, like, it's kind of serious."

30 things to look forward to with just 30 days until 'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse'

It's hard to believe, but one of the summer's biggest movies is only 30 days away from opening. No, it's not "Inception," that's in July. And, no, it's not "Toy Story 3," that hits theaters in less than three weeks. Nope, it's the third installment of "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" and unlike a few other franchises this summer, this is one flick that won't underperform. It doesn't hurt there is a growing fanbase that is salivating at the prospect of watching the most action packed of Stephenie Meyer's novels hit the big screen (not to mention IMAX screen) and the fact the next "Twilight" film won't hit theaters until November 2011. And the closer it gets to opening, the more the media (HitFix included) will focus on the "Eclipse" that will occur over the July 4th weekend.

With that in mind, the collective staff at HitFix have come up with 30 things you can look forward to over the next 30 days leading up to the thriller's release. With a sly wink of course, because the best thing about "Twilight" fans is that they have a sense of humor about themselves (unlike some Muggles we know...).

30. In a desperate hunt for ratings, CNN's Anderson Cooper devotes an hour to "Eclipse" coverage.

29. Several teenage girls will rush out to see director David Slade's earlier movies and be very disturbed by "Hard Candy" and "30 Days of Night."

28. The five fans who saw "The Runaways" will watch the Dakota/Kristen scenes in "Eclipse" with a completely new subtext.

27. Duh, MTV viewers picking "New Moon" over "Avatar" for best picture at the MTV Movie Awards.

26. Just like with "New Moon's" Chris Weitz, fans and the stars all of a sudden fall in love with David Slade if and when they love the movie (and yes, it's too late for him to direct "Breaking Dawn").

25. The semi-annual scuttlebutt about Taylor Lautner's workout regime returns. Our guess? P90-X.

Ashley Greene “Alice” Pic from Twilight Eclipse

Today’s Twilight Saga update comes in the form of a somewhat unusual photograph of Ashley Greene as her character Alice Cullen. David Slade, the British director of Twilight Saga: Eclipse, is the author of the photo, which he took during the pre-production process. Slade shared the image with fans via his TwitPic page. The black and white portrait is stunning. Dare I draw comparisons between Greene and her idol Audrey Hepburn?
