Fans haven’t gotten enough of “New Moon” just yet, but they’re already hungry for tidbits on the next “Twilight Saga” flick “Eclipse,” which opens next June. And the cast is eager to oblige by telling us about their favorite scenes from the third installment.
” ‘Eclipse’ is my favorite book, so I’m actually really excited for people to see that one,” Peter Facinelli, who plays Carlisle Cullen, told MTV News. “The Cullens get to roll up their sleeves and really get into the mix of things. They’re usually so restrained all the time, and I think people love the ['Twilight'] baseball scene because you got to see them actually do what they can do as vampires, and in ‘Eclipse’ it’s that to the 10th power. You get to see them be what they can be as vampires.”
Fellow Cullen Ashley Greene is also keen on displaying Alice Cullen’s skills. “I’m really excited to see my fight sequence,” she said. “There’s some playful moments between Jasper and Alice that I’d like to see. They take parts of your character and put it into your fight sequence, so mine’s kind of a Cirque du Soleil-ish sequence, so I want to see it.”
Kellan Lutz looks forward to seeing the results of his hard work preparing to send Emmet into battle. “We went through the six weeks of fight training … and they trained us so well that we just dominated our choreography moves,” he shared. “And they’re going to look really cool.”
But while everyone seems excited to duke it out, Nikki Reed is most looking forward to sharing Rosalie’s tragic backstory. “Well, Jackson [Rathbone] and I, we both had the opportunity to shoot our backstory, so I shot an entire sequence in the 1930s,” she explained. “And it’s intercut between a really amazing scene and moment that I have with Bella. And Jackson sort of did the same. I think the fans will like that. I think they want to see the Cullens’ history. It gives me the opportunity to explain myself.”
