New Rosalie/Bella clip gives hope that “Eclipse” will focus more on the Cullens

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: During Nikki Reed’s appearance today on The Ellen Degeneres Show, a partial scene from “Eclipse” featuring her character, Rosalie, was shown for the first time. The new clip, combined with commentary from other Cullen actors in a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, engendered hope that “Eclipse” will succeed where “Twilight” and “New Moon” failed—in covering the stories of the Cullens in greater depth.

As Twi-hards are well-aware, the relationship between Bella and Rosalie is of critical importance to certain elements of “Breaking Dawn”. Similarly, the histories of other Cullen vampires are central to fully realizing the potential of “Eclipse”. One long-standing gripe of fans is that “Twilight” and “New Moon” sought primarily to capitalize on the revenue-driving power of the love triangle, and, given this approach, questioned whether Summit would be able to pull off the final two films.

It seems the winds are changing. So much of “Breaking Dawn” surrounds the Cullens that in order for the ending to gell with fans, their characters must find revitalization in the film depiction, and they must find it now. The new clip featuring Reed, as well as Reed’s own comments to the Los Angeles Times (and those of the other Cullens) give hope that even brief dialogs such as this will underscore details ignored in the first two Twilight films.

“I don’t hate you,” opens Rosalie. “I don’t particularly like you, but…Bella, I envy you.” An incredulous Bella protests, at which point Rosalie echoes sentiments expressed briefly in the family vote scene in “New Moon”.

We won’t fully know until “Eclipse” is released, but other pre-premiere interviews should tell some of the tale. As other Cullen actors make appearances promoting the film, we can expect to see film clips featuring their characters. The ongoing success of the series will be tightly linked to fan reaction to “Breaking Dawn”. Let’s hope this queuing up of the Cullens is a sign it will be done right.
