The Twilight Impulse

My thoughts and impressions of the Twilight Saga, written by the fabulous Stephenie Meyer


Hey, I'm a massive Twilight Fan, and thanks to my friends being fed up with having to listern to my non-stop chattering about Twilight, i decided to create a blog for myself to just vent and document my twilight obsession!! I'm current studying journalism and have aspiration to become one, so why not write about something as awesome as the Twilight Saga!!

New Moon screening for Cast..

During the last two week or so, the entirety of the cast of Twilight have seen the rough cut of New Moon!! Edi Gathegi twittered about it, he saw it first, with Stephenie Meyer!!! And just a day or two ago, Peter Facinelli twittered that he has seen it too. Of course, the rest of the cast have probably seen it, but just don't have twitter accounts to mention it.

Lainey Gossip have reported (and i don't know how accurate this is) :

"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."

So, if the score hasn't been set to the movie yet, that means it probably isn't finished yet. I'm assuming that the music we heard from the trailer was some of Alexandre Desplat's score for New Moon, and that the entire score just isn't completed at the moment. From the trailer, the two quick clips at ComicCon and the sneak peek before Bandslam, I'm loving his work!! Because he is very talented, just some of the films he has done prior to New Moon are very impressive. Check him out on IMDB here.

Chris Weitz singled out Taylor Lautner, of all the other actors (including Michael Sheen, Dakota Fanning), saying that his performance was amazing and that he showed the most potential!! I can't wait to see Taylor's performance. In Twilight, he didn't really get to display his acting ability, because Jacob in Twilight isn't a complex character. He is just a young teenager who gets a crush on a girl. Also, he only had like literally 6 minutes in the film, and you couldn't really do much with that.

I just hope he is a good actor. I don't want to say he is amazingly talented and fabulous, without actually seeing a performance, because i wouldn't be judging his acting; that would be judging the possibility of his acting skills from his personality. I love Taylor, he is so nice, enthusiastic, passionate, committed and dedicated to the saga. However, i wouldn't call him a good actor, essentially because i haven't seen anything legitimate to judge him on. And no, Shark Boy and Lava Girl doesn't count! Hope Chris Weitz is right about him, although i have the feeling he may be telling the truth. I have kinda seen some of his acting ability from that sneak peek at ComicCon. In that one shot, when Bella tells Jake that he is "sorta beautiful", that expression on his face is really good! Awww.

The cast is so lucky. Firstly, for actually being in the films!! So jealous. In addition, for seeing a screening already. But, i think I'll wait to see the final product, than some rough, cut version without music and the score and everything!! It would be much better to wait, and see New Moon, when it's at it's best! Is is November yet? Chris Weitz, I'm dying here!! Oh, and pictures of Chris Weitz,his wife and his son, were taken. I must say, his wife is gorgeous and his little boy is adorable.
