MSN has yet annouced ‘Now & Then: Heartthrobs through the years featuring Then: James Dean & Now: Robert Pattinson.

Then: James Dean
All women love a bad boy, and James was the poster boy. The “Rebel without a Cause” star’s iconic status was cemented with his role as high school student Jim Stark. His tragic death at an early age, along with his three starring film roles, guaranteed his enduring fame as a cultural icon.

Now: Robert Pattinson
Sexy, brooding vampires are all the rage now, which means Robert Pattinson, who plays Edward Cullen in the “Twilight” franchise, is plastered all over the walls of pre-teens’ bedrooms worldwide (and secretly admired by their mothers). His costar, Taylor Lautner, may give Pattinson a run for his money and pin-up status when the second film, “New Moon,” hits theatres this fall, giving girls a glimpse at the 17-year-old’s newly crunched abs. Two hotties really just means twice the swooning.

A lucky fan has the opportunity to get the first to watch Robert’s ‘Remember Me’ trailer. Here’s are some plot from the trailer.

The trailer was fantastic. Rob looked phenomenal! Truly, people are going to go nuts over how adorable he looks. Tyler just seems very cute and lost and a bit disillusioned. A few highlights were Tyler going up to her for the first time (nervous…very adorable) and there was also a going in for the kiss/kissing scene. The trailer was bits and pieces of a lot of the stuff we have seen from the set pics. The best part of the trailer was shirtless Rob! He was in bed with Emile (you only see their backs, she didn’t have a top on) both covered by a blanket from the waist down.

He was lying slightly to the side, so bare back and bicep. That scene is going to kill the female population. I was also overjoyed to see that Emile de Ravin is using an American accent (not trying to be mean, but her normal accent drives me crazy). A brief bit of the fight scene is in the trailer, just Tyler going over and punching the guy a few times and then the cops being there. Read more…

Below are some more spoilerish plot from ‘New Moon’. Beware there are some in-depth detail of the story. Thanks to Twifans for the info!

Quote from Chaske Spencer “I think Sam is a person that has been thrown into extraordinary circumstances. He’s had to sacrifice a lot. Sam is like the chief of police. He’s taken on the mantle to be the protector and help guide the other boys who are going through the traumatic experience of becoming werewolves, because there was no one there to guide him along. Bella and Jacob’s relationship is not a good thing for Sam. She’s in love with a vampire, and it’s thrown a wrench into what he’s trying to do to protect his people.”

Quote from Taylor: “The hate that werewolves and vampires have for each other goes way back. The treaty is the most important hting, Jacob is always reminding the vampires about the treaty. So we have a scene at the end where Jacob, Bella and Edward are together and Jacob is getting kicked out. Edward is about to leave with Bella and Jacob reminds Edward, one last time “Remember the treaty.” {ok this gives me shivers}

The tattoo the wolfpack members have was designed based on a series of tales the Production Designer, David Brisban, heard while visiting the Quileute tribe. “One thread that really stuck in my mind referenced the twinning of the wolf character having to do with strength and togetherness.” It is a double wolf motif and had 6 variations in both black and red, but one was chosen that is all black.

They used full scale cutouts as a visual reference for the wolves. Each weighed 20-30 lbs and had a hole in the side for someone to use to carry them.

The wolves were each given characteristics based on the actors playing them, which is linked to the characters in the story. (Same=big and black) (Paul=more muscular and aggressive) (Embry=thinner and smaller)

It was important to make Jacob’s wolf “iconic”. In the animation he had to carry himself with an air of pride and nobility.

The animators studied real wolves in packs to help them get a deeper feeling for the creature they were creating.

The main model was Jacob’s wolf, all the others are based off of that.

Taylor did his own stunt for the “phase scene” and not only had to leap over Kristen, but was rigged so he’d stop in the air before the transformation. His body was also replaced with a CG version for part of the shot.

The 1st trailer that was at the MTV awards was a “dress rehersal”. They didn’t have all the time they needed to put some of the effects in during Jacob’s transformation and have since added to it.

“What’s special about Jacob is he’s the only one who transforms in mid-air…” quote from Taylor

The Nomadic or Feral vampires have a new look in New Moon, more elegant, less rock and roll, this was at Chris’ direction. The feeling was that they had been on a killing spree and had personal effects from their victims, and thus better clothes.

Victoria is more stylish, less earthy with clothes that flow and show movement

Laurent is more stylish, yet Edi asked to keep the bare chest showing under his jacket.

Rachelle did her stunts during the forest scene where her character is being chased by Charlie and the “hunters”. She was swinging through the woods on wires.

One of the pictures of Rachelle from the companion shows her sitting on the floor in front of a pile of ashes, could this be James??

Quote from Taylor:”I definatly think it’s a prejudice the werewolves have towards all vampires. And, especially for Jacob, it’s because Edward Cullen, the guy who has his girl. But, I gotta admit, {the Cullens} are pretty decent vampires”

Wardrobe for the Cullens was updated. Chris Weitz felt that in Twilight they were a little too seperated color wise from the rest of the people in town. So they added a bit more to the color pallete, staying in the cool realm, but moving away from pastel hues to steel grays and blues.

Makeup was changed also to make them more translucent, without appearing stark white.

Wig’s changed as well, but in limited ways since they were limited by what was all ready established in the first film. In Twilight Nikki bleached her hair, but for New Moon she is wearing a wig. Laurent’s wig was changed from synthetic to one made with real human hair.

Edward’s appartion was seen as a “flame” moving elegantly and fluidly. Chris gravitated toward this because it was like Edward was carrying a torch for Bella.

For 90% of the film Rob appears in the same suit he wore at Bella’s birthday party.

There is an original flashback to the meadow scene with changed “sparkle effect”

The film makers wanted to make a fresh interpretation of the “diamond guy” effect, similar to sunight on snow.
“We decided to something based on the sparkle of this statuary marble from Thasos, a Greek Island, which I always kind of thought the author was going for with this vampire effect. It has a kind of crystalline structure, this diamond sparkle. Another inspiration was the way Tiffany lights its diamonds, how the multifaceted surface sparkles when light hits it. From that starting point, we then wanted to enhance those qualities with a slight translucency.”

Edward arrives in Italy wearing the SAME suit he’s worn for months. The pristine suit is now threadbare, the jacket is gone, his pants are diry and his shoes are all scuffed up! {ok this is making me cry thinking of it…..poor Edward!!}

Chris Weitz quote “I think two thousand years of living has made the Volturi slightly nuts, has led them to think they’re pratcially gods, and has given them a perverse attitude to human life.”

Bella’s first view of the Volturi is in a painting at the Cullen’s house. In a magical transition the camera pushes into the painting and takes us back to the past.

There were two looks for the Volturi, one for the 1800′s and one for contemporary. In the 1800′s Aro is dressed in the lightest clothing and in the present time he is in the darkest, all showing status and power.

Michael Sheen quote: “In a way, playing a vampire is sort of like playing Hamlet, there have been so many depictions. Aro is dangerous and deadly and powerful, yet the way he is written he doesn’t come across as a sinister Dracula character–Stephenie describes his voice in the book as being feathery and like a long sigh. I love the idea that the vampires, generally, as a species are very attractive to their prey. They’re the perfect predators, they’ve evolved to be able to lure their prey, the humans, to them.”

Kristen quote: “It’s funny, the book says they have no regard for human life, but the way Aro treats Edward and Bella is oddly compassionate.”

In the original screenplay Melissa Rosenberg had the idea of having a huge battle with Edward and even Alice fighting and being slung around. Stephenie reined her in and pointed out that Felix would be a challenge enough for Edward.

The idea of the fight was not to show a superhero battle. “Edward is like the average guy caught in a bad situation.”

Vampire speed for New Moon means “slow motion”. We found if you sped up the camera speed it would look silly.

The fight scene switches from the perspective of Bella watching the fight, to putting the audience in with the vampires as they fought.


At one point Edward’s head gets smashed on the marble floor and his vampire skin appears to crack, along with the floor. It seems Edward is done for, but his wound suddenly heals. Chris Weitz spoke with Stephenie and got her approval. Any ideas or questions always went through Stephenie since she has the whole mythology in her head.

Quote from Rob: “All the vampires, especially the Volturi, seem very comfortable with their existence, but they see themselves as monsters. And when they see this human who says, “I love this guy,’ they all obviously want that, too. They want ot believe that can happen. So that curiousity, their fascination with that, is essentially what saves him.”

Quote from Michael Sheen: “There are a lot of things involved in the idea of playing someone who’s sort of immortal. Aro, for me, has a genuine fascination with people, with vampires, with other beings. He can get caught up in the drama of what’s going on for people. He can be delighted by someone one moment, and kill them the next.”

The initial cut of the film was 3 hours. “I know Twilight fans will think ‘Three hours of Edward and Bella and Jacob, that would be heaven, But the reality was it was too flabby. So we had to cut down the length, but it was never about cutting scenes, just cutting down the length of scenes.” Peter Lambert, editor

More from Peter Lambert “This is a movie with visual effects and action and horror, but it’s really a love story, we’re on an emotional journey with the characters. and Kristen, Taylor and Robert were amazing, they were totally into their characters.”

word from Summit President, Erig Feig, “Each book has a central emotional quandry and scope and we’ve tried to find the right directors for each. Twiligth is raw and real and Catherine Hardwicke was the first director I met with and the only director for that movie. New Moon has more complicated emotions with bigger forces at work, and Chris Weitz was the director with the skill to show that. On Eclipse the challenge is how do you visualize and show an audience that choice has consequences, that Bella is ina crucible of multiple decisions and option? Who can get that David Slade.”

Final word from Chris Weitz “This movie, for me, has been redemptive. I had a difficult go on my last film, where I felt the movie was kind of taken away from me. This movie has been a joy in comparison and I’ve been able to make use of everything I’ve learned up to this point, and I’ve gotten the chance to work with some extraordinary people. Going in, I didn’t realize the enthusiasm of the fan base, and that was also inspiring. As Peter Lambert and I sat in the editing room, it gave me an added incentive. I don’t think anyone knew there would be this degree of enthusiasm and that there would be this cyclonic snowball effect of books and films feeding on one another to make this amazing cultrual moment.”
