Eclipse Soundtrack Listing: From Kristen Stewart’s iPod Playlist?

As of this morning at 10:30am, MySpaceMusic has been releasing the track listing for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse soundtrack. Individual track information has been released periodically throughout the day, no doubt to generate hype and pre-order sales for the highly anticipated Eclipse soundtrack. With June 30th looming in the not-so-distant future, many Twilight fans will want to know the Eclipse soundtrack in and out before they see the film hit the big screen this summer.

Once the Eclipse soundtrack details started to pop up online and on MySpaceMusic’s twitter, @MySpaceMusic, the first thing I thought was: ok this is blatantly off of KStew’s iPod. When I hear Metric, Bat for Lashes, and Band of Horses I can’t help but think of Kristen and her favourite music. So the question on KStew and Twilight fans’ minds today is – did Kristen Stewart compile this Eclipse soundtrack? Because it really does look like it.

Don’t forget that Kristen had her say on the original Twilight soundtrack with the Iron & Wine song – Flightless Bird, American Mouth. There was a song already in place for the prom scene at the end of Twilight and Kristen suggested the Iron & Wine song instead. Low and behold, it made its way into the movie and onto the Twilight soundtrack. Maybe Kristen threw her two cents into the mix for the Eclipse soundtrack or maybe it’s pure coincidence, but this track listing will be a welcome addition for KStew fans playlists either way.

This is the order the songs were announced in via @MySpaceMusic but that order may be different for the actual Eclipse soundtrack.

This soundtrack looks simply amazing upon first glance – I think Kristen in particular will be very happy with this selection of music for Eclipse!

The Eclipse soundtrack will be widely available for sale on June 8th, just a few weeks before the theatrical release of Eclipse in theatres on June 30th. It’s going to be an amazing summer Twilight fans!

Final Eclipse Trailer: 5 Great Things About The New Eclipse Trailer

Everyone is buzzing about the final Eclipse Trailer for the upcoming Eclipse movie release on June 30th and I can definitely see why. The new Eclipse Trailer is so much better than the short Eclipse teaser trailer that was released a while back. The final trailer showcases the elements of action, the Edward/Bella/Jacob love triangle, and the newborn vampire story that are all prevalent in the third Twilight Saga novel. It shows just enough to get non-fans interested, and more than enough to get Twilight fans counting down to the movie release of Eclipse.

Many people including myself were initially disappointed with the Eclipse teaser that has recently been making the rounds in movie theatres as part of the previews. This is the one where there’s a whole lot of disjointed dialogue going on between Edward and Bella, Bella and Jacob, and random scenes of Victoria flying through the trees. The dialogue is stunted, there’s a lot of those terribly awkward pauses we’ve come to dread, and to me it just didn’t seem to depict what the story of Eclipse is really about. The Eclipse teaser focused more on dialogue with jagged transitions, and less on actually previewing the movie and the storyline. The release of this new Eclipse Trailer has definitely gotten things back on track – according to everyone’s discussions that I’ve witnessed, we’re all loving it! Without further introduction…

5 Great Things About The New Eclipse Trailer:

  1. It actually gives the Eclipse movie some backbone by setting up the storyline of where the characters are at post New Moon. Edward has proposed to Bella (Bella’s engagement ring makes an appearance), Jacob is anxious about Bella’s safety in terms of the vampires, and we are given enough info to glean that there’s an army of newborn vampires who will be causing havoc in this movie. The trailer instantly grabs your attention and tells you what is happening in Eclipse. Basically, the plot is set up for anyone who hasn’t read the books, and it is visually actualized for the Twilight fans who have waited so long for this to come together.
  2. The newborn vampires, specifically Riley, get a proper introduction in this final Eclipse Trailer. We’re taken out of Forks to new settings with glimpses of the attacks in Seattle and then back again to Forks. I loved the clip of the bad vampsĀ  slowly ascending out of the water looking menacing (and in my opinion, creepy as all hell).
  3. We see the wolves and vampires clash right before our eyes in the final seconds of the Eclipse Trailer. The fight scenes look incredible and are pivotal in the Eclipse storyline as Jacob and the wolves team up with the Cullens and the good vampires to face off with the vicious newborn vamps. Overall I really think they did a good job of showing clips that would make the viewer instantly want to go see the movie, Twilight fan or not.
  4. Everyone’s hair and makeup is looking good, despite fans concerns with stills and set photos that circulated. They’ve changed up characters’ hair such as Edward, Jasper and Carlisle but I think it works. The characters are evolving with the storyline so why shouldn’t their appearances alter a bit with those changes? Also, I was relieved to find that Bella’s wig did not seem to look hideous at all in this Eclipse Trailer. In fact, I’ll go as far as saying that it looks fine.
  5. We get glimpses of some of the best scenes from the Eclipse book – essentially, everything that happens up on the snowy mountain ranges towards the end of the story. Seeing Victoria in a flurry of snow and the arrival of the Volturi just solidified how amazing it’s going to be to see the story we love come to life. Eclipse is a lot of peoples’ favourite book in the Twilight Saga and it is also mine. The Eclipse Trailer mirrors the detail-rich writing from the book. I feel like it accomplished this without looking, sounding, or coming off as corny in any way.

Verdict of the final Eclipse Trailer? Total success. Check out the new Eclipse Trailer (Eclipse Trailer 2) in HD below:
