Oprah Show fans react to early screening of “Eclipse”
A handful of lucky Twi-hards got a double-whammy this morning at the taping of the 5/13 episode of The Oprah Show. Not only did they get to sit in the same room as their favorite film stars, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner as Oprah interviewed the trio—Oprah arranged for the audience to see an advanced screening of “Eclipse”.
Word has already spread like wildfire about the reaction to the rough cut, which has been overwhelmingly positive from fans of all camps. The lion’s share of comments have surrounded the most dearly-anticipated scenes: those involving chemistry between Bella and Jacob and the angst-ridden tent scene that throws said chemistry in Edward’s face. Whether Team Edward or Team Jacob, fans seemed to agree that the connection between Bella and Jacob was “hot”; the observation was inclusive of Bella’s two kisses with the werewolf, as well as the utilitarian spooning they engage in, in the tent to keep her warm.
Echoed by fans was a sentiment expressed over and over by Team Summit, particularly director, David Slade, who has repeatedly alluded to the role of action in the film. Though fight scenes have featured in every Twilight film thus far, it seems that the ratcheted-up pace of “Eclipse” cannot be overstated.
Beyond that, comments on Twitter abounded about “Eclipse” being the best Twilight film yet—hands down. From the fight scenes, to the love scenes, to the still-unspecified soundtrack, fans were unanimous in their glowing reviews.
