Summit unveils new official website for “Eclipse” movie
By Kim Palacios
The latest “World of Twilight” website, this one dedicated to “Eclipse”, went online late yesterday in conjunction with the release of the final studio trailer. With only five brief sections, the site can’t be described as rich with content, but its design remains great eye candy for fans of the Twilight Saga, who are looking forward to “Eclipse”.
Both the teaser trailer (the first official release) and the theatrical trailer (the one released yesterday) can be viewed in HQ under “media”. A placeholder for a media downloads section is marked as “coming soon”. Screen shots from the film (e.g., Edward and Bella in the meadow, Bella and Jacob by the fire, and others that have widely been seen elsewhere), also appear. An official store, an “about the film” area that gives a written synopsis, and even a “community” section that lists popular fan sites appears, as well as a “coming soon” note on a “worldwide community” section. Also included (for the moment) are links back to the replay of yesterday’s live chat with Dallas Howard, Nikki Reid, and Julia Jones.
For die-hard fans, very little of the content on this official site is truly new. Indeed, wallpaper and poster downloads are already live on the official Twilight Saga Facebook site, despite not yet being downloadable on the “Eclipse” site. Still, it’s nice to be able to distinguish official news and media from rumors and manipulations. So, a big thank you to Summit for unveiling the new site—Twilight fans appreciate the effort!
