Tonner dolls feature Rachelle aka Victoria- snap this up, folks!

Dread Central reports this sick, ironic release:

Tonner Doll Company was the first collectibles outfit to recognize the potential of the Twilight franchise and (along with some prodding from Dread toy junkies) quickly jumped at the chance to bring this world of supernatural beings into their family of licenses. To date only Edward and Bella have been realized in doll form, but as the Dread crew closed up shop at San Diego Comic-Con, our excellent Tonner friends flagged us down for a sneak preview of what's to come. Tonner's Victoria Doll from Twilight

Say hello to James (Cam Gigandet), Laurent (Edi Gathegi), and Victoria (Rachelle Lefevre, soon to be replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard, however)!

The Gloves Come off...

Twilight Victoria by rabbitslikecarrots.

Rachelle's Response:

"I was stunned by Summit 's decision to recast the role of Victoria for Eclipse, Lefevre said in a statement to “I was fully committed to the Twilight saga, and to the portrayal of Victoria . I turned down several other film opportunities and, in accordance with my contractual rights, accepted only roles that would involve very short shooting schedules.

My commitment to Barney's Version is only ten days. Summit picked up my option for Eclipse. Although the production schedule for Eclipse is over three months long, Summit said they had a conflict during those ten days and would not accommodate me. Given the length of filming for Eclipse, never did I fathom I would lose the role over a 10 day overlap. I was happy with my contract with Summit and was fully prepared to continue to honor it. Summit chose simply to recast the part.

I am greatly saddened that I will not get to complete my portrayal of Victoria for the Twilight audience. This is a story, a theatrical journey and a character that I truly love and about which I am very passionate. I will be forever grateful to the fan support and loyalty I've received since being cast for this role, and I am hurt deeply by Summit 's surprising decision to move on without me. I wish the cast and crew of Eclipse only the very best."

Summit's Statement

"We at Summit Entertainment are disappointed by Rachelle Lefevre’s recent comments which attempt to make her career choices the fault of the Studio," the letter begins.

" Her decision to discuss her version of the scheduling challenges publicly has forced the Studio to set the record straight and correct the facts."

And, oh yes, there are bullet points:

• Ms. Lefevre's representatives were advised as early as April that THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE was expected to start shooting in early August. • If Ms. Lefevre was, as she describes “passionate,” about being part of THE TWILIGHT SAGA, we feel that she and her representatives would have included us in her decision to work on another film that would conflict with the shooting schedule of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE. • It was not until July 20th that Summit was first informed of Ms. Lefevre’s commitment to BARNEY’S VERSION, a commitment we have since been advised she accepted in early June. Summit had acted in good faith that she would be available to fulfill her obligations both in terms of rehearsals and shooting availability for THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE. We feel that her choice to withhold her scheduling conflict information from us can be viewed as a lack of cooperative spirit which affected the entire production. • Furthermore Ms. Lefevre took a role in the other film that places her in Europe during the required rehearsal time, and at least ten days of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE’s principal photography. This period is essential for both rehearsal time with the cast, and for filming at key locations that are only available during the initial part of production. • Contrary to Ms. Lefevre’s statement, it is simply untrue that the Studio dismissed her over a ten day overlap. It is not about a ten day overlap, but instead about the fact that THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE is an ensemble production that has to accommodate the schedules of numerous actors while respecting the established creative vision of the filmmaker and most importantly the story. The fact remains that Ms. Lefevre’s commitment to the other project - which she chose to withhold from Summit until the last possible moment - makes her unfortunately unavailable to perform the role of Victoria in THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE.

From the Lexicon:

We have been asked by people how to contact Summit Entertainment. Their address is a matter of public record:

Summit Entertainment
1630 Stewart Street, Suite 120
Santa Monica, CA 90404

It’s our personal opinion that actual mail vs. email makes more of an impact. It’s easy to discard email with a simple click whereas it’s difficult to ignore the presence of physical mail, especially in volumes.

Internet petitions, while well intentioned, don’t work because it’s too easy to fake signatures, and for that reason management teams tend to not take them seriously.

We are currently tracking down a contact address for Rachelle that is for fans. Until we get it, you can reach her at her Twitter.

Here is Rachelle’s fanmail address(via Twilight Series Theories). Again though Tweeting is nice, you are limited to 140 characters. An actual card or letter we believe would have more of an impact.

New Moon will feature lots of sparkling, but no Stephenie Meyer

In an interview with Time magazine, Weitz revealed some tidbits about New Moon that you may not know:

• There will be lots of sparkling in the movie.
• Stephenie Meyer will not have a cameo.
• Taylor’s abs are au natural.
• Summit understands that it's Stephenie Meyer's world, and really it's about recreating the experience the reader has, in some kind of faithful manner.
• Kristen is very protective of Taylor.

Victoria replaced? Say it ain't so!

Los Angeles, CA July 28, 2009 Summit Entertainment announced today that Bryce Dallas Howard will take over the role of "Victoria" in the studio's upcoming production of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE. Actress, Rachelle Lefevre, who portrayed the character in TWILIGHT as well as the upcoming release of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON, will not continue in the role due to scheduling conflicts with another commitment the actor has made. THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE will start filming in Vancouver this coming August.

THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE, the third film in the studio's TWILIGHT film franchise based on Stephenie Meyer's blockbuster book series, will be directed by David Slade from a screenplay written by Melissa Rosenberg. The film will be released theatrically i
n North America on Wednesday, June 30, 2010.

"We are incredibly happy that Bry has agreed to come into the franchise,"said Erik Feig, Summit's President of Worldwide Production and Acquisitions. "Rachelle brought "Victoria" to great screen life and Bryce will bring a new dimension to the character. The franchise is lucky to have such a talented actress as Bryce coming in to fill the role."

Howard most recently starred in TERMINATOR SALVATION as Kate Connor and has been seen in SPIDER-MAN 3, LADY IN THE WATER, and THE VILLAGE. She was nominated for a Golden Globe for her leading performance as an actress in the HBO film AS YOU LIKE IT.

THR reports: The studio attributed the move to scheduling conflicts. The actress was recently cast in the indie drama "Barney's Version" opposite Dustin Hoffman, which also has an Aug. 17 start date, only several thousand kilometers east, in Quebec.

Interview with a blonde vampire- Jamie Bower

MTV talks to Jamie Campbell Bower about New Moon...

MTV: Tell us about your character in “New Moon.”

Bower: I play Caius, who is the leader of the Volturi. They are a coven and effectively run the vampire community. They make the laws up. It’s me, Michael Sheen who plays Aro, and a guy called Christopher Heyerdahl who plays Marcus. We try to kill Bella and convince Edward to come and live with us — because Peter’s character [Carlisle Cullen] had come and lived with us before — and we love the Cullens deeply.

Kellan incognito at Comic-Con

From 4TNZ:

Comic Con, held last week in San Diego, was insane — Twihards took over! From New Moon clips to press conferences, it was all Twilight all the time, and all the stars of the film showed up!

But if you were looking for Kellan Lutz, you may have had some trouble finding the real life Emmett Cullen — he was in disguise, to avoid some of the crazier fans!

MTV reports Twilight Rules Comic Con - is ANYONE surprised by this?

I have to admit that traveling like mad for work last week and then heading to the beach last weekend totally upended my plans for holing up in some quiet space with a bottle of red and my laptop to drool over all the Comic Con coverage online. Despite this, I was not at all surprised that Twilight once again staged a coup at Comic Con, taking over all the excitement and news for the event!
"Yes, I have heard of this fabulous person named Cullenized and her mentor Twilight Moonlighter (though I prefer her original name), and I think they're HOT!"
MTV has additional coverage proving that our fave mythical creatures (and their human counterparts) really are the best! Check out the scoop here

Kstew is stressing. . .perhaps a massage is in order?

Some have said our Bella, Kristen Stewart, was "down" at Comic Con. . .albeit in her leather pants and Joan Jett hair style. Maybe she's feeling overworked with no break between New Moon and The Runaways. . .

Well, my fave E!Online reporter, Ted Casablanca, shares some insight into what could be bugging her. . .and what's happening with Robsten! Check it out here
Maybe her leather pants are too tight, putting her panties in a bunch

Kellan + Ashley = Ashlan? Kashley?

I love me some Kellan, especially out of character (even though I love Emmett because he reminds me of my husband with his comical comments) - and I have a major girl crush on Ashley. . .I just love everything about her in and out of her Alice character! But I don't know how I feel about them "together" - not that I'm starting any rumors!

Robsten Lovers has some great pics from Warrior - the film they're doing together - and I must say, they are awfully nice. . .

Are you kidding me? Cutting in line at Comic-Con turns heated

In line at Comic-Con, girls were complaining that people at the front of the line were cutting. Read about the whole altercation HERE (including a video!)- here's a snippet:

Security told them that each person was allowed to hold three spaces in line and that that was a courtesy granted to them. "You are actually loitering," said one of the security guards. The girls countered by saying that if one person can hold three spots, then if one of those people came, then they could also hold three spots, and the line in front of them would increase exponentially.

The girls proceeded to say that it was also "creepy" that some of the women were so adamant about going to a panel to see a teenager (Taylor Lautner who plays Jacob -- apparently the moms were on Team Jacob).

"Spidurmunkey" interviews author of Defining Twilight

Erica’s most recent accomplishment was interviewing Brian Leaf, the author of Defining Twilight.

It's actually the first interview the site's had. Usually, we just get interviews from other sites to post them, but we took the initiative to contact Brian Leaf when we heard about his new book coming out, Defining New Moon. He agreed and was so nice and it was really great!

Erica’s Twilight-infused website is proof positive that teenagers can take their passions and use them in a positive, fruitful effort. Not only does Erica make money through her online store, she’s learning real-world applications that can’t be taught solely in school.

Ashley's ex wanted to play the part of Riley

Ashley Greene, Josh Henderson Beck Starr/Getty Images; Jean-Paul Aussenard/Getty Images

E! Online reports:


f things had gone differently, Ashley Greene could have been making Twilight movie magic with her ex-boyfriend, former Desperate Housewives star Josh Henderson.

"I talked to Ashley about potentially being the new, college, all-American character that's a vampire in the third one," Henderson told us last night at Xbox's launch of EA Sports' Madden NFL 10 in Santa Monica. "I went for a few auditions, but they went with an Australian kid."

As all Twi fans know, Henderson is referring to the role of Riley in Eclipse, which just went to big-screen newbie Xavier Samuel.

How times have changed for Henderson and Greene. It used to be Greene who was doing the following of Henderson to work...

"I remember when she was brand-new," Henderson said. "She used to come on set with me and be like, 'Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh.' So, I'm completely stoked for her that she's doing her own thing…It's completely changed her life."

Chris Weitz confirms soundtrack artists *video*

Hitflix reports:

Director Chris Weitz has confirmed to that Radiohead's Thom Yorke and Bon Iver will be contributing all-new tracks to the film "Twilight Saga: New Moon."

"I selfishly want to put songs in by artists I love. And some the cast and crew also happen to love," says Weitz. "I think [Bon Iver] is fantastic. He says he wrote it for the film, but who ever knows if it might just be something laying around in his cupboard."

Weitz mentioned that he will be listening to Yorke's new track tomorrow (July 24) and "unless it's sounds of him belching, I think I'll put it in."

The comments came during the "Twilight" sequel cast and crew interviews at Comic-Con in San Diego, the multi-day fest at the Convention Center.

British rock group Band Of Skulls -- who have lately been opening for Spinnerette -- will also be included and Weitz still is "hoping to get Kings Of Leon."

As previously reported, Alexandre Desplat will be scoring the film, the sounds of which Weitz describes as "lush. That's how I wanted the cinematography to be."

I Know What I Am

Taylor Lautner doesn't like to growl

From the L.A. Times:

6a00d83451b92469e20115713506e2970c-800wi Taylor Lautner, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were at Comic-Con's “New Moon” press conference this morning.

Check out the on-the-scene report on

Taylor talked about his fans asking for a couple of snarls. So please don't do that.

"They ask me to growl for them, and I really don't enjoy doing that," says Lautner.

Seems like everyone's fave moment in "Moon” is the breakup scene.

Even Robert, who explained: "I think my breakup scene was my favorite scene. Hopefully it will come off having a few more levels than the relationship in 'Twilight.'

"It's a really interesting little moment. It completely bypasses all the supernatural elements of the story as well."

Taylor’s fave book is "Eclipse," the movie they will shoot next.

Full Comic-Con 2009 coverage all weekend from Zap2it & Syfy and Hero Complex.

Find out why.....

“It has lots of action in it. In 'Eclipse,' it's the three of them physically together," Taylor says. "They have to team up to try and be friends to protect her. I'm excited to get going."

But “Moon” is Rob and Kristen’s fave of the "Twilight" series.

"I liked 'New Moon' in terms of how far I could push myself in the series," says Kristen. "I feel after 'New Moon' it's kind of smooth sailing for her. But in 'New Moon,' she's lost. I had to find her again."

" I like the juxtaposition of so many people being there," says Robert. "It's such a hyped character. So many see him as a hero. In 'New Moon,' he's so humbled. He's looking at Bella and is thinking he loves her too much. ... He deliberately starts breaking it. And the final fight sequence at the end, Bella saves Edward, which she does in every book.

Lexicon's New Moon panel report- *spoilers*

From Twilight Lexicon:

WARNING! There are spoilers here, so look away if you really don’t want to know!

For the first clip, Jacob shows Bella how to work the bike, and as she reeves the engine a “ghost” of Edward appears. This spurs her on and she heads down the road passing multiple “ghosts” on her way until she crashes. Jacob rushes to her and worries over the bleeding gash on her forehead. She apologizes for the blood, to which he says, “it’s only blood, Bella,” and removes his shirt so he can use it to clean her up. Bella gives him the once over and tells him he’s kinda beautiful. He then asks her is she maybe bumped her head too hard.

The second scene was of Alice and Bella driving through Volterra surrounded by the people in red robes. Bella darts out of the car and rushes through the crowds toward the clock tower. She sees Edward just as he is opening up his shirt and getting ready to step out into the sun. She darts over though the fountain telling him to stop and then… the footage ends. Great teaser there!

All hail the Twilight naysayer

A fellow Examiner recently wrote this:

And if you're an adult and you're into this nonsense, we're looking at a bigger problem. Take, for instance, this site. If you're still here, lemme tell you what that link does. It transports you to a genuinely creepy place called "Twilight Moms." A place for moms who love "Twilight" just as much as their teenage daughters. One can't help but imagine this is some sort of desperate attempt at bonding by a group of middle-aged women who have lost the ability to communicate with the surly, moody, ever-fickle being they call a "teenage daughter." And if it's not, then the alternative is even more depressing: you're an adult who reads a series of vampire romance books marketed to teenage girls, written at their 9th grade reading level. Wow. For the woman who finds all those bodice-ripping romance novels too "Porn-y", there's always "Twilight".
