Hollywood.com’s Summer Movie Guide: Eclipse in 3D?
Posted by Robstengasm on Tuesday, April 27, 2010
The drama heats up in the third chapter of Twilight’s wildly popular teen vampire saga as paramours Edward (Pattinson) and Bella (Stewart), reunited after spending most of 2009’s New Moon estranged, face daunting new challenges, not the least of which is a looming war between vampires and werewolves. Jacob “Let’s Just Be Friends” Black (Lautner), meanwhile, isn’t about to abandon his pursuit of Bella just yet.
What We Think: A more action-oriented director (Slade’s credits include 30 Days of Night) and a less angsty plot could help Eclipse appeal to more than Twilight’s usual following of tween girls and their mothers. But it probably won’t.
Cool to Know: Eclipse will be presented in 3D, which should render the frenzied shrieking of Pattinson-obsessed tweens approximately 30% more ear-piercing.
