‘Eclipse’ Special From People: Gawk At 145 Photos While You Pick A Team

You know it’s “Twilight” time of the year again when People magazine whips out their newsstand only “Twilight Saga” special collector’s edition issues. Last year’s “New Moon” special even had a sneak peak at “Eclipse” and, though it won’t start filming until the fall and thus we won’t have anything to peak at, we’re hoping this issue will have plenty of “Breaking Dawn” goodies, too.

What we do know is that the collector’s edition will feature interviews with the cast and crew, a look behind-the-scenes, and a total of 145 photos of the film. We’re sure quite a few of them will show scenes we haven’t yet seen in trailers and featurettes, and (fingers crossed!) might include some of the film’s steamier scenes.

The cast interviews promise a look at the nine new actors joining the cast, including Bryce Dallas Howard as Victoria. “She’s such a good actress, it was easy to be scared of her,” Kristen Stewart said in her interview. But “she’s really sweet as well.”

As for the rest of the cast, Peter Facinelli said they aren’t much different than they were three years ago. “Other than having bodyguards around, I don’t think much has changed since we shot ’Twilight’,” said Peter. “Their personalities and their egos have not gotten any bigger. On the set they’re very professional.”

Fortunately People is offering a $1 off coupon, because this time around they are selling both a Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner cover to satisfy both Team Edward and Jacob. The special issue will be available until June 21.

Are you planning on picking up a copy of the collector’s edition? Will you buy a Rob or Taylor cover?
