With just over a month to go before "Twilight" finally hits theaters, the news is coming at fans faster than Tyler Crowley's van. Just in the last few days, we've had the announcement of the "Twilight" soundtrack songs, the revelation that part of the film will "Premiere" at the Rome Film Festival, and building buzz over the final trailer scheduled to premiere this week.
Our newest "Twilight" Tuesday brings you Part III of our popular "Stars Answer Fan Questions" series, so be sure to head on over and watch all those fun videos. We also wanted to bring you up-to-date on a few other key "Twilight" happenings, being engineered by some of Stephenie Meyer's biggest fans:
- Michael Welch has been added to the panel of the "TwilightLive" podcast, which will be held at Borders in the Westwood section of Los Angeles on November 16th, just a few hours before the film's red carpet premiere. Those of you who remember our coverage of the NYC event know that this is not to be missed! The show will also feature panelists from TwilightSeriesTheories, Imprint (the podcast of TwilightSource), His Golden Eyes, TwiCon, and more. The event begins at 2 p.m. PT, and Welch will appear for a question-and-answer session. Mike/Mike will also be signing autographs, but please try to remain fully clothed if possible. If you are planning on coming to the event, please RSVP with the amount of people in your party to firstname.lastname@example.org. Maybe we'll see you there!
- We are nearing the final days of "Operation Plaid," a very cool fan-driven project that aims to send Robert Pattinson an enormous token of appreciation from all the people who'll soon be filling movie theaters worldwide. Take a look at this site or their MySpace to get a peek at plans for the giant scrapbook being put together, featuring Twilighters' letters from all over the globe, as well as other tokens of affection for RPattz. If you'd like to show Mr. Spunk Ransom how much he means to you, be sure to contact Operation Plaid soon. The deadline for the scrapbook is November 10th.
- Finally, stay tuned for some big announcements that we'll be making in the next few weeks. With the premiere and the film's release on the horizon, rest assured that MTV will continue to be all over "Twilight" like a Cullen on some sort of non-human woodland creature.
Okay everybody, here's your "Twilight" Tuesday question of the week: How will you be seeing "Twilight" the first time? What criteria are you using to pick out your theater? Who will be coming with you, and what snacks will you be eating? Will you be dressing up and going to a midnight show, or can you wait until the chaos dies down?
