Vampires and werewolves unite! The cast of twilight were joined by a number of celebrity friends as they took to the black carpet at Monday’s premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1.
Fans queued for days by the theatre to score autographs and pictures from their favourite Twilight actors such as Kirsten Stewart, and heartthrobs Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. Also in attendance were Twilight author Stephanie Meyer, singer Cody Simpson, 90210’s Matt Lanter and Bruno Mars, who’s song “It Will Rain” is featured on the soundtrack.
One thing is for sure – the cast dressed to impress! Stewart, who plays Bella Swan, was all smiles as she stunned the crowd with her J Mendel purple sequined dress with a thigh high slit revealing her never-ending legs.
Robert Pattinson took away the breath of every girl in the audience, no doubt, looking as dashing as ever in a crisp
Taylor Lautner was dressed to perfection in his grey suit and purple tie. Is that a Movember moustache we see him sporting? We like!
The Cullen boys took to the red carpet in individual styles. Kellan Lutz blending in to the carpet with his all-black ensemble, making his blue eyes stand out quite nicely. Peter Facinelli wore a blue suit and scarf, overtop a white button down shirt. Jackson Rathbone proved his individuality by sporting a red velvet suit – wow!
The women of the Cullen clan looked ravishing. Ashely Greene was seen in a sultry red Donna Karan strapless tulle dress. Elizabeth Reaser wore a vintage beaded dress that lit up the carpet, and Nikki Reed put on asimple yet stunning green, over-the-shoulder chiffon dress.
Stephenie Meyer, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Bruno Mars, Danica Patrick, Liam Hemsworth, and Kendall and Kylie Jenner all graced the carpet with their presence.
With all of the secrets and rumors regarding characters and stars of The Dark Night Rises it is no surprise that a new superhero and his subsequent rumors have begun to flourish alongside. According to Perezhilton.com, Tron: Legacy star Olivia Wilde may be up for the role of Lois Lane in Zack Snyder’s (Watchmen) upcoming Superman Reboot.
Though there was some talk around town of Jon Hamm being up for the role of the Man of Steel, earlier this week it was confirmed that The Tudors star, Henry Cavill will be playing the Metropolis Hero. Past rumors of Kirsten Stewart’s apparent interest in the role of Lois Lane have been put to rest. Wilde now takes precedent in the rumor mill. According to sources the actress has already been screen tested for the role, but does she have enough natural chemistry with Cavill to pull it off?
Hopefully Snyder is not as tight-lipped as that damned Christopher Nolan. However, Nolan is one of the producers of the film so expect to see these secrets remain hidden.
Despite being drenched in chilled rain, globs of snowflakes and exhaustion due to standing outside for days, a street of a reported 1,500 fans got what they waited for on Saturday night, as the cast of the upcoming movie “Twilight”- Robert Pattinson, Rachelle Lefevre, Nikki Reed, and Kirsten Stewart- dropped by Much Music in downtown Toronto, and were greeted with a raving audience of shrieks and screams.
According to CTV News, crowds began cluttering the streets as early as two days in advance.
The cast covered all angles to promote the new movie, which is due in theatres on November 21, from signing autographs and posing for polaroid fan-pictures to answering questions about the audition process and their on-screen chemistry.
The film has received an enormous amount of popularity and hype due to it’s massive fan base of the Twilight saga series written by author Stephenie Meyer, about the love affair of a 17-year-old girl, played by Stewart, and a century-old vampire in a 17-year-old boy’s body, played by Pattinson.
“I kind of am fascinated by the whole “Twilight” phenomenon,” said celebrity blogger Perez Hilton who greeted the cast via web cam. “Especially because the movie hasn’t even come out yet. I would venture to say that safely at this point in time Robert Pattinson has a bigger, crazier effect over the ladies than even Zac Efron.”
The film apparently went through thousands of actors until they finally casted 22-year-old Pattinson as the perfect fit for the heartthrob Edward Cullen.
“We just spent like four hours in this room hashing over all the scenes and we couldn’t stop talking about it,” said Pattinson. “But it’s funny, it’s like last year you can’t get a date, and this year the world turns and everybody — the definition of attractiveness has just been redefined.”
“I had no idea this was beloved by so many people,” said Stewart, 18, who plays heroine Bella Swan. ”It’s a strange thing to have something so personal and to care about something so much individually and then become aware of it halfway through you’re already starting the project. So, you know — I care about the book as much as everybody else. Bella is like every girl, and she’s not a vampire, so she doesn’t have any superpowers, but I guess she’s like a superhero, in the sense that she’s a really strong character.”
And as the story and film’s main couple, Pattinson and Stewart spoke a bit about the thought process behind the on-screen chemistry. “The one thing that needed to be specific was that it’s not a typical make-out scene,” said Stewart. “We didn’t really do a rehearsal, because there needed to be a responsiveness that needed to be solid.”
Canadian born Lefevre, who plays the villainous vampire Victoria, says her passion for the series began long before the audition, and the decision to take a bite into the role has resulted in a dream come true for the Montreal actress.
“I read “Twilight” before the audition and I didn’t wait to find out if I got cast or not, I read the whole series. I’m definitely a fan,” said Lefevre, 29. “But it’s been pretty amazing to be on the receiving end of so much support and adoration and excitement. The anticipation has been very great, but really I just feel really lucky. I’m from Montreal and now I’m coming home to Canada and instead of coming home just to see family I’m coming home to do a press tour. It’s kind of surreal.”
