After news spread that Summit Entertainment was holding [movie id=”420622″]”The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”[/movie] test screenings over the weekend, testimonials began to appear online from fans who had the chance to see the flick. The only problem? There was no test screening, so the testimonials were anything but accurate.
A source close to the “Eclipse” production told GossipCop.com that rumors of the screening are “absolutely not true.” Also, any testimonials being published online on sites like Alex’s Memories are equally untrue. The source said specifics around any trailers and screenings for the flick have yet to be announced.
“There is absolutely no merit to this claim,” a Summit Entertainment rep confirmed to MTV News about reports of the screenings. “We noticed it over the holiday on multiple message boards and sites, and it appears that some of this was spam.”
The fictional testimonials had fans gushing over the third film in the “Twilight Saga.” Recently, the stars have said they can’t wait for Twilighters to see the film, set to open in June. ” ’Eclipse’ was my favorite book, so it was a lot of fun filming,” Taylor Lautner told MTV News in November at the New York screening of “New Moon.” “My favorite scene in the entire series is the tent scene, where the three of us [Jacob, Bella and Edward] are together. And it’s gonna be really fun. There’s a lot of comedy in ’Eclipse.’ ”
Robert Pattinson was looking forward to the film’s darker undertones: “I think Bella’s little bit of treachery in the third one will be … a good scene.”
Meanwhile, the actors’ shared onscreen love, Kristen Stewart, said she can’t wait to see Jacob and Edward fight over her . “I’m looking forward to seeing the love triangle actually becoming a problem,” she said. “We sort of innocently touch on it in ’New Moon,’ but it actually becomes something that is very, very real.”
