World exclusive “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” clip to be shown at tonight’s UK National Movie Awards
By Kim Palacios
HollywoodNews.com: Announced this morning via a National Movie Awards PR affiliate, tonight’s UK-based award show will air what it is calling a “world exclusive” snippet of “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”. Maclaurin Media made the announcement on Twitter and its official web site, linking to a small article with additional details about the show.
Adding to the intrigue of the announcement is language in the accompanying Digital Spy article, which alludes to footage delivered from Los Angeles by “secure escorted courier”. For weeks, fans survived on crumbs (i.e., the abbreviated trailer), but in recent weeks, Summit Entertainment has made a lot more footage available.
By now, “Eclipse” fans have seen minutes of the film and there is evidence of more to follow. Beyond the three official trailer releases appearing on the Eclipse web site, a large handful of other “world exclusives” have surfaced as part of extended media shows. A Rosalie/Bella and an extended Jacob/Charlie/Edward scene appeared on two separate episodes of The Ellen Degeneres Show; The Oprah Show ran extended clips (beyond the world premiere of the theatrical trailer); and yet another world premiere clip will be presented by Rob, Taylor, and Kristen at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards.
As a wider spectrum of actors begins to appear on promotional shows, additional previews may be enjoyed by fans. Watch out for your favorite stars’ media appearances—clips accompanying them to talk shows will always feature the actor’s own character.
The National Movie Awards will be broadcast live from London at 8PM local time on ITV1.
