Synopsis: As a string of mysterious killings grips Seattle, Bella, whose high school graduation is fast approaching, is forced to choose between her love for vampire Edward and her friendship with werewolf Jacob.

Reaction: More action, but still pretty angsty. The high point of the series so far, though.

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Jackson Rathbone's (Jasper) favorite actress is Bryce Dallas Howard who happened to be cast in this.
  • [?] Miranda Kerr and [?] Vanessa Hudgens were considered to play Leah Clearwater.
  • Director David Slade originally spoke against the [Twilight] series, stating that he wouldn't go near the franchise. Shortly after he was announced as the director of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, he quickly withdrew his previous remarks, claiming it to be a joke he was doing to promote some comedy shorts.
  • The scenes of Victoria building her "army" were based on the novella 'The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner', written by Stephenie Meyer and distributed, in first draft form, to the cast. One particular line, given by Edward to Jane, indicates he knew about the alliance alluded to in the novella, but, with no proof, it was something he could do nothing about.
  • When Charlie is sitting at the kitchen table looking at the Riley flyer, it states that Riley was born April 10th, 1990. This is the day after Kristen Stewart's birthday. She was born April 9th, 1990.
  • Kristen Stewart received her high school diploma by correspondence one week before filming Bella's graduation scene. She took a mock graduation photo with an extra so she'd have a photo of herself graduating high school.
  • David Slade has stated that most of Nikki Reed's fight scenes at the climax were left out because the dailies that came back from the lab were underexposed and the shooting schedule would not allow him and the crew to reshoot her parts.
  • Jasper introduces himself as Jasper Whitlock to a coven of vampires, but is often referred to as Jasper Hale in his modern life; this is because he adopted Rosalie's family name to pass himself as her twin brother.
  • In certain scenes, the Cullens irises are completely black rather than their usual golden topaz color. While never directly commented on in the movie, it is referred to in the novels as an indicator of a vampire's extreme hunger when the eyes go completely black.
  • Tom Felton and Channing Tatum were both considered for the role of Riley.
  • Both [?] Paul Weitz and Drew Barrymore were considered as directors.
