And, now, for something other than “Eclipse”

By Kim Palacios

This week has been rich with with breaking news about “Eclipse”—from the new trailer, to the launch of the official web site, to the release date of the soundtrack. But, the fact is, the film isn’t due out for another two months. What’s a Twi-hard to do in the meantime?

As it turns out, “Eclipse” isn’t the only movie coming out this summer. With so many other Twilight cast releases, it should be easy for you to get your fix. As you while away your time waiting for June 30th, here are some upcoming spring and summer Twilight cast film releases to get excited about now:

“A Nightmare on Elm Street” – Kellan Lutz – Release date: April 30, 2010. Some fans have scoffed at Kellan’s upcoming appearance in “A Nightmare on Elm Street” saying the remake is a large step down from “Twilight”. While it’s true that the sixth film in any franchise is rarely the best, Kellan will be joining the ranks of distinguished Freddie Krueger alumni including Johnny Depp, Laurence Fishburne, and Patricia Arquette.

“The Last Airbender” – Jackson Rathbone – Release date: July 2, 2010.
So this one technically doesn’t come out until after “Eclipse” but now’s the time to start getting stoked. This much-anticipated animated-TV-show-turned-action flick features Jackson as Sokka, a teenage water tribe warrior. The film is about the vanishing of the peacemaker who keeps the lords of the four elements in harmony, and his successor who must step in to restore balance.

“Chain Letter” – Nikki Reed – Release date: August, 2010. The tagline for the movie gets right to the point: “if you don’t forward it, you die”. Nikki Reed will lead the cast in what appears to be a classically designed horror flick: sinister force + helpless teenagers = characters dropping like flies.
