Total 'Eclipse'22 Jul, 2010 By: Fred Topel
Fans of the “Twilight” saga can look forward to more Eclipse when the film comes to home video. The third film in the series runs two hours and one minute, but there were some additional scenes that didn’t make the cut.
“There were a number of scenes that just felt excessive in terms of beating the same story,” says director David Slade. “We took them out, but some of them were really nice and are great little standalones.”
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse deals with a brewing battle between the vampires and wolf-pack protecting Bella (Kristen Stewart) and the vampires who want to kill her. To get to that epic battle faster, some scenes just had to go.
“There was a great scene with Angela (Christian Serratos) that is really just two girls talking about guy troubles, that is really, really sweet,” says producer Wyck Godfrey. “But it took place in a section of the movie that had to kind of propel along. But it’s a beautiful scene, beautifully performed, and it’s going to be a nice, little extra bonus for fans of the books.”
In addition to deleted scenes, Summit Entertainment’s Eclipse DVD and Blu-ray will include all the standard behind-the-scenes and making-of features, according to Godfrey.
“I think there’s going to be a lot of classic behind-the-scenes stuff,” Godfrey says. “You’ll get to see how we did most of the action and stunts in the movie and a lot of the CG process.”
