Although they said they were waiting until they hit 200,000 followers on Twitter, Summit Entertainment went ahead and released the title treatment artwork for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse this evening, and of course we’ve got a look at it for you … in all its sparkly glory.
Meanwhile, Eclipse director David Slade has been an active tweeter these past couple of days as filming winds down. His latest 140-character message? “Last day on the battlefield, shot a huge day, tomorrow there may be a party, while battles ensue on mountain tops…”
Lest you forget that New Moon is about to premiere and its lead actors are today’s equivalent of rock stars, Summit Entertainment is kicking off a New Moon Cast Tour in November that will visit 15 cities nationwide.
It all starts in Los Angeles, CA, at the Hollywood & Highland Center on Friday, November 6th, with a special event open to the public where fans will be treated with performances by several bands featured on the New Moon soundtrack scheduled to include Death Cab for Cutie, Anya Marina, Sea Wolf, and Band of Skulls. Other stops denoted with an asterisk (*) below will also feature live music from various soundtrack bands. Best of all, fans can attend a Question & Answer forum with many of the movie’s cast members.
Those who acquire VIP credentials on October 31st will be granted access to a special event with select cast members at their respective malls, and that’s where things get a little tricky. For the chance to register and meet cast members, fans need to visit Hot Topic or select Nordstrom stores at 8:00 am on October 31st at one of the participating mall locations. They will be given access to return and meet select cast members at that same mall on the assigned scheduled date and time. VIP credentials provided on October 31st are limited and will be distributed on a first-come/first-served basis to those who make qualifying purchases. VIP credentials are non-transferable.
Visit the Hot Topic and Nordstrom websites for more details on how to acquire VIP access to meet members of the cast along the tour which runs from November 6th through November 19th. Exact cast members will be subject to availability and may vary from event to event.
