The Twilight Forever Experience kicks off exclusively in the big apple today. This is all to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of Summit Entertainment’s blockbuster epic and the eagerly enticipated DVD and blu-ray box set release of “Twilight Forever: The Complete Saga.”
The stars of the film, including Jackson Rathbone who stopped by our show this morning to fill us in on what’s in store. Planet Hollywood Times Square (1540 Broadway, New York, NY 10036) will host an exclusive fan celebration to unveil its new Twilight Forever Fan Experience exhibit, where props from all of the films – including Bella’s wedding dress, Edward’s tuxedo and Jacob’s motorcycle — will be on display to the public.
Here’s some videos of Jackson surprising fans at the recent Twilight marathon in NY!
The Twilight Forever box set unveiled its promotional trailer on Friday afternoon, and in it we’re treated to our first look at new footage.
As you can imagine, the Twilight box set includes all five movies (Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn – Part 1, and Breaking Dawn – Part 2) as well as each of the film’s previously-released special features.
The bread and butter of Twilight Forever is the two hours of never-before-seen special features exclusive to the box set. According to a press release, the bonus material is made up of “a cast retrospective with new interviews; ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Character’ which showcases previously unreleased behind-the scenes moments on set; an exploration of the epic ‘Twilight FAN-omenon’ and individually highlights Edward and Jacob’s stories in ‘Twilight Forever: Edward’s Saga’ and ‘Twilight Forever: Jacob’s Saga.’”
Twilight Forever will hit store shelves on November 5. It will arrive just as we approach the one year anniversary of the final film in the saga, Breaking Dawn – Part 2, opening in theaters around the world.
It’s always nice to see stars give back. And before “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2” is released on DVD at midnight on March 2, stars from the film surprised kids at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles on Friday.
Nikki Reed, Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, and Jackson Rathbone all popped in to surprise kids who just thought they were getting a special screening of the film. The “Twilight” stars passed out signed DVDs, posed for pictures, and spent time talking with many families inside the hospital.
“When we were filming [Breaking Dawn] we went and gave our time at the Children’s Hospital in Baton Rouge and it feels good to be able to give back,” Facinelli told omg! during his visit. “I know a lot of these kids are going through a hard time and anything you can do to put a smile on their face or make their day better, gives them positive energy and keep fighting the good fight to get better.”
Facinelli lit up the room by telling a few jokes to the patients and explained what went into filming some of the difficult scenes like the big showdown at the end. (Did you know they had to film with cardboard werewolfs?)
A dozen children gathered around a TV at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles March 1, watching a Blu-ray Disc of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2, a day before it’s released to the public.
Keaira Lomas-Lee, 13, was answering trivia questions about the “Twilight” franchise before the movie began, smiling wide after getting one of the questions right. Her smile got a lot bigger when “Twilight” star Peter Facinelli (Dr. Carlisle Cullen) walked through the door.
“What are you guys watching?” he joked, as Elizabeth Reaser (Esme Cullen), Jackson Rathbone (Jasper Hale) and Nikki Reed (Rosalie Hale) followed him through the door.
“Can we just sit down and watch all the extras together? I haven’t seen them yet,” Facinelli said.
“Have you guys seen all the movies?” Reaser asked. Most had.
The stars spent a solid half hour signing DVDs, T-shirts and tote bags, before taking pictures with the kids. Facinelli walked the kids through some of the copious bonuses Summit and Lionsgate included on the DVD and Blu-ray. The four then visited sick children in their rooms.
“I was surprised when they came [in],” Lomas-Lee said, as she looked through the autographed goods she was given. Asked what she planned to do with her signed DVD, she replied: “I’m going to keep mine!”
The official Twilight facebook page recently posted this new still from Breaking Dawn – Part 2 featuring Jasper, Alice and Emmett.
A new still from each film have been added to the gallery. So glad we finally got a better quality version of that Jasper Twilight still!
After the premiere of the new movie from The Twilight Saga, vampires have dominated many conversations of young locals.
Jackson Rathbone, who plays Jasper Hale in the “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2,” was at the Four Seasons Hotel and Resort on Friday to discuss why the saga was such a phenomenon to begin with.
“I think what Stephenie Meyer was able to create was putting out that there is the duality that we experience in life, which is love and fear,” Rathbone said. “You have this character that falls in love with someone she should fear. I think that when love conquers fear, it is something that is so innate in our human sensibilities that we are immediately attracted to it.”
“There are a lot of love stories out there, but there is not that sense of having to conquer fear. To have the sensibility and connectivity that you can fall in love and be love for eternity is something I firmly believe in and that people look for in life. So to me, that’s what draws people to it.”
Rathbone could not reveal much about the highly anticipated battle scene, but he believes it is going to leave fans speechless.
“I love action sequences. It’s really fun getting to utilize that vampire strength and speed because we didn’t get to do it a lot,” he said. “In a lot of the ‘Twilight’ films, we didn’t get a chance to really dive into what makes a vampire movie so great. So it was amazing to get a chance to dive in there.”
