Is Bella’s Dad Being Cut Out of ‘Twilight’ Sequel? We’ve Got the Scoop!

On Tuesday afternoon, Summit Entertainment officially released the names of the new “Twilight” stars joining the franchise for this year’s “New Moon,” along with an official confirmation on the return of the Twilighter fan favorites.

But, was someone missing?

“Rejoining the movie are Ashley Greene as Alice, Peter Facinelli as Carlisle, Elizabeth Reaser as Esme,” read the announcement posted on Summit’s website. “Kellan Lutz as Emmett, Nikki Reed as Rosalie, Jackson Rathbone as Jasper , Edi Gathegi as Laurent and Rachelle Lafevre as Victoria.”

Um, hello? Where’s Billy Burke?

Almost immediately, Twilighters began speculating on whether Burke – who endeared himself to fans with his charismatic, comical take on Bella Swan’s police officer dad Charlie – had been cut from the sequel.

Before the rumors spread too far out of hand, however, we’ve got the scoop on some good news for Twilighters.

An inside source has confirmed to MTV that the veteran actor is indeed in the “New Moon” cast, and will be returning as Bella’s father. Despite Billy Burke’s omission from the press release, Kristen Stewart’s family will look exactly the same when they hit theaters everywhere on November 20th.

And in case you missed it, here’s Summit’s official synopsis of the “New Moon” plot: “In ‘New Moon,’ Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) is devastated by the abrupt departure of her vampire love Edward (Robert Pattinson). But her spirit is rekindled by her growing friendship with the irresistible Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner). Suddenly, she finds herself drawn into the world of the werewolves, ancestral enemies of the vampires, and she finds her loyalties tested.”


Love Bella’s ‘Twilight’ style? So does Robert Pattinson!

There’s no expensive D&G, no blinged Juicy Couture, no double-C Chanel or slinky Versace in the seductively subdued world of “Twilight.”

“Twilight” costume designer Wendy Chuck explains to EW why she didn’t put Bella (Kristen Stewart) in a single big designer creation in “Twilight.”

And she probably won’t do any recognizable designer duds in “New Moon” either.

Seems she made a conscious choice to shun A-list designers and stick to real-life affordable separates.

”My look is always character-based and not fashion-based,” she tells EW. It’s really easy to get over-stylish, and I felt that Bella in particular had to be anchored in the real world.”

That’s why you see Bella in the parking scene car wreck scene in a brown Rubbish hoodie from Nordstrom and woolen mittens from Ruth Cross. And why Bella looks sweet in a cream thermal by Curious Gypsy with thumb holes in the sleeves in the hospital scene.

And why she sports a faded blue cargo jacket from Jack BB Dakota (purchased at the last minute from a Nordstrom Rack store) when she and Edward do tree climbing. And why she dons a $20 Max and Cleo silk frock from the discount shop Ross to briefly hit the high school prom.

According to EW, that newly dubbed “Twilight” cargo jacket will be reissued in July for $84. We want one now!

What’s your favorite Bella outfit in “Twilight”? Edward (Rob Pattinson) sure seems to like all her clothes.


“Isabel Swan”

Lol.. an article has got Bellas name wrong. It doesnt even matter what the article is about.. its just for teh lulz.

phenomena — girls sighing and clutching their copies of Stephenie Meyer’s book and wishing they were Isabel Swan so they could have a the “un-dying” love of a handsome guy (the fact he’s a vampire is almost irrelevant) – without really knowing about the heroine, here are the basics:

Isabel, known as Bella, leaves her mom’s home, ostensibly so her mom can spend more time with her step dad (self-sacrifice) and moves in with her real dad. She keeps house for him pretty well and maintains excellent grades. She even likes classic literature… but those are about all the positive attributes your daughters could glean from her.

But the article talks about stuff you should be getting into over Twilight. Read it here

Why Twilight’s Jacob Black Is Better Than Edward Cullen For Bella Swan

Please go and support us (:

Even though Edward Cullen captured Bella Swan’s heart in Twilight, here are the reasons I think that Jacob Black is a better match for her.

1. He’s tall, dark and handsome. Unlike Edward Cullen, his complexion isn’t the same color as “Plaster of Paris.”

Even though Edward Cullen’s skin glitters like diamonds in the sunlight, his aversion to the sun would likely put a rift in any relationship.

Did I mention that Jacob Black has perfect teeth?

2. Jacob has Bella’s best interest at heart. Bella and Jacob have known each other since they were small children, so he cares more about her than Edward does.

3. Edward’s family is still a bunch of vampires. If you think it’s hard to be a human vegetarian, imagine how difficult it is to be a vegetarian vampire. The very scent of blood could be enough to turn Bella into a dinner feast – in fact, Edward had a difficult time pulling away when he had to remove James’ venom in Twilight, so she should be concerned about being turned into eats.

4. Edward is always trying to pull away. Let’s face it. Relationships can be a real pain in the butt, especially if the object of your affection
is always trying to push you away. Bella deserves more than just a broken heart.

5. Werewolves are cooler. They have better eyesight, hearing and can run freely all day long. Since vampires never sleep being in a relationship with them gets tiresome. A girl needs her ‘beauty rest’ after all.

I, for one, look forward to seeing Jacob Black as a leading man in New Moon. The sequel begins production next month and stars Kristen Stewart as Bella Swan, Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen, Taylor Lautner as Jacob Black and Kellan Lutz as Emmett Cullen. New Moon has a US theatrical release date of November 20, 2009.

Twilight is still running in American theaters and has a DVD release date of March 21, 2009. The Twilight (Two-Disc Special Edition)is available for Pre-order now!


Ashley Was Almost Bella!

They call her Alice Cullen NOW. But would you believe Ashley Greene almost had a different Twilight fate? She could’ve hooked up with her onscreen bro!

“I originally went in [auditioned] for Bella and they gave me the part of Alice,” she told the French Twilight fansite Impossible Fascination. “I love the character, I got really lucky. I think she’s so lovable and she’s so cool. I get to see the future.”

That’s one perk, we guess. But what about being Edward’s sister?

“Oh, you know I am ‘Team Jacob’ when they were still deciding on whether to keep Taylor or not, but Edward is my brother,” she said. “I adore them both, so I believe that I will am Switzerland.”

Nice way to dodge that one, Ashley! LOLZ!!!

What do YOU think: Would she have made a good Bella, or was Kristen Stewart born to play the part?


Fan Made: Bella’s Womb from ‘Twilight’ (aka Creepiest ‘Fan Made’ Ever)
February 5, 2009, 10:57 pm
Filed under: Bella Swan | Tags: , ,

We’ve been writing these little Fan Made posts for awhile now, and although I’d like to think that I’ve seen just about everything you wacky fans can come up with, this little nugget of fandom came along and just about cost me my breakfast. Oh yes, one creative (and creepy) Twilight fan actually took the time to felt together Bella’s womb, complete with — wait for it — an actual felted mutant fetus inside! Who in their right mind does stuff like this? Seriously, who wakes up one day and says, “Ya know, I think I want to spend the next week or so recreating what Bella’s womb would look like with a mutant fetus inside, and then maybe share it with fans on the internet … because they’ll of course think I’m, like, completely normal and stuff.”

We love you Twilight fans — we really do. You’re passionate, loyal and determined to spend as much time as you possibly can caring, loving and rooting for these fictional characters. But I think (or should I say, hope) you agree with me when I say we’ve discovered the limit. This is when you should turn to your child and say, “Mayyybe it’s time to take on something a little more productive.” Check out both the closed womb and the open womb w/ mutant fetus in the gallery below — then tell us: Is this the creepiest piece of fan-created junk you’ve ever seen? If not, what beat this?


New gas cap for Bella’s pickup truck
January 20, 2009, 10:40 pm

FORKS — No one knows where the old gas cap off Bella Swan’s pickup truck went, but the 1952 Chevrolet has a new one.

The old truck — which no longer runs — is parked outside the Forks Visitor Center as an attraction to fans of the Twilight series of books which features Bella as the young heroine.

The fictional character supposedly drove an old pickup truck like the SSRq52 Chevy, and West End Motors has come to rescue after the gas cap went missing off the truck, said Mike Gur¬ ling, visitor center manager who came up with the idea to display the old pickup.

Sometime last week, the gas cap was stolen by what Forks Chamber of Commerce officials can only guess was a zealous fan.

A story on the purloined gas cap appeared in the Peninsula Daily News last week and was disseminated to Twilight fans worldwide Saturday on peninsuladailynews.com.

Kyle Anderson of West End Motors came to the rescue from close to home.

“He brought in a whole box full of gas caps, and we picked out a really nice one and a semi-nice one that we will have as a backup — just in case,” Gurling said.


The books, which have remained on the best-seller list since the release of New Moon in 2006, also are being made into movies.

The first flick was released in November, and the second movie, based on the second book, New Moon, will be released this upcoming November.

The series — beginning with Twilight and followed by New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn — detail the love affair between Bella, a clumsy high school girl, and her handsome vampire boyfriend, Edward Cullen.

The pickup truck was purchased by a group of Forks business owners and donated to the chamber after it was painted red — to look more like the model described in the book.

It sat center stage at Stephenie Meyer Day — Sept. 13, in honor of Bella’s fictitious birthday — in Forks, when about 1,000 fans flocked to town for pictures and camaraderie.

Marcia Bingham, director of the Chamber of Commerce, said Anderson plans to step up and help when other atrocities befoul Bella’s truck.

“Anderson will dress up in black to investigate all further Twicrimes [against the truck],” she said.

(Fans of the books and movie call themselves “Twihards.”)

Beyond Anderson’s help, about three dozen fans e-mailed the Peninsula Daily News over the holiday weekend with tips on where to buy car parts, and many more called the Forks chamber office to offer their help and condolences.

The culprit, however, was not among those responding, Gurling said.

Other Twi-thefts

One fan, Heidi Files of Salt Lake City, noted that the gas cap theft wasn’t an isolated incident.

She said in an e-mail that she and several other TwilightMOMS had borrowed a similar pickup truck from Files’ father for the premiere of the “Twilight” movie in November.

The pickup — parked outside the cinema in Salt Lake City — also lost its gas cap to a sticky-fingered fan.

“My dad is bummed, since the truck was handed down to him from his father and he is in the process of restoring it,” Files said.


Get the gear from Twilight

There is so much to talk about with Twilight, the adaptation of the Stephenie Meyer novel that has sunken its fangs into so many young readers. There is the literary angle – how does the film compare to the book? There are the stunning locations in Portland, Oregon (standing in for Forks, Washington) that play host to the romance between high school student Bella (Kristen Stewart) and her vampire paramour Edward (Robert Pattinson). There are the quirky, high school fashions that combine modern edginess with classical elegance and even cars from Bella’s beaten up old 1963 Chevrolet C-10 truck to Edward’s Volvo C30 (originally a 1953 Chevy and a Volvo S60R in the book respectively), though for techie fans there is only one subject – the cool gadgets on show.

And there are quite a variety of techie toys and household items paraded in Twilight, many providing interesting insights into the characters that use them. So if you’ve read all the books, ditched all your old clothes in preference for some like Bella’s and are a veritable encyclopedia of information about Portland, complete your Twilight makeover by tooling up just like the Forks High School crowd.

Bellas Gear
Bella is more of a bookworm than a techhead in the Meyers novel, using an old PC that still has dial-up, a portable CD player and minus that staple of modern life – a mobile phone, though this all changes in the movie. Our heroine is given a few new trinkets to play with yet attention has been paid to keep these true to her character. They’re not too expensive for a teenager or too cutting-edge and new for someone far from interested in gadgets.

Instead she updates the CD player trading it for an Apple product, probably an iPod as suggested by her white Apple iPod earphones though the iPod itself never makes it onscreen. And when getting online to use the Google search engine to learn about all things vampire, Bella ditches her crusty PC for a Black Apple MacBook, but this is now a past generation model.

For keeping in touch with her mother Renee who lives in Phoenix, Arizona Bella uses a white Nokia 7360 mobile phone. This model is part of Nokia’s “L’Amour Collection” (a brilliant echo of the movie’s romantic theme) and with its feminine design of etched metal and transparent surfaces it manages to look young and fashionable. Key features include the integrated VGA camera, FM stereo radio and triband coverage on up to five continents.

Get Bella’s White iPod Earphones, Nokia 7360 Mobile Phone & Apple MacBook Black.

Edwards Gear
While Bella owns the customary must-have gadgets of modern life, Edward’s world of sleek luxury is a complete contrast. There’s nothing ordinary or commonplace about some of the stylish household items cluttering the youngest Cullen’s bedroom.

Being a vampire he doesn’t need to sleep, so trades a normal bed for a swanky Barcelona day bed made from real leather – great for lounging on at all hours. He also decorates his corner of the breathtaking Cullen house with an unusual side table that complements the white and minimilistic décor. Designed by famed American architect and designer Warren Platner, this side table is part of a collection originating from the 60s that transforms steel wire into scupltural furniture. Metallic rods are welded to circular frames and then polished and lacquered for protection. Like the day bed, the side table is far from cheap, yet that’s the glory of being an immortal – deep pockets.

There are some items in Edward’s room on a less grand scale, one being his stacks of music CDs. Currently playing on his sound system is “Clair de Lune” by French impressionist composer Claude Debussy which earns the thumbs up from Bella. ””Clair de Lune” is great,” she enthuses. This, the third movement of Debussy’s piano “Suite bergamasque” is heard during a car journey between the pair in the book, rather than in Edward’s room as per the movie and when translated from its Gallic roots neatly ties in with the film’s themes meaning “moonlight”.
