Show where your loyalties lie for the release of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
Posted on June 29, 2010
It all begins…with a choice.
We currently put the score at 1-1. But as Team Edward and Team Jacob prepare to battle it out in the third instalment of Stephenie Meyer’s teen vampire-werewolf romance, anything could happen. In Twilight we totally fell for the eternal 17-year old Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) along with new girl in town, Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart). He was well dressed, intelligent, a perfect gentleman, not to mention he can fly through trees and stay up all night watching you sleep. But he’s also dangerous, as we found out in New Moon when fellow vamp, and part of the Cullen clan, Jasper (Jackson Rathbone) tried to attack a paper-cut Bella.
Then he left and we were reintroduced to Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner), a local teen whose muscles seemed to grow with every scene. With Edward out of the picture our hearts shifted to the thoughtful mechanic but it turns out he’s pretty dangerous too, being a werewolf and all. We don’t know what that says about Bella’s taste in men. By the end of New Moon we were confused about which team we were on, and then Edward proposed.
With Eclipse out tomorrow in the US we’ll be hearing Bella’s answer to that question very soon, but we’re still debating where our loyalties lie. Can we be on both teams? We hope so because we’ve found these super-cool Eclipse tees at Hot Topic. There are two grey Team Edward shirts; one featuring the red Cullen crest and the other with his face in a heart.
For Jacob fans there’s a black top with the wolf packs tattoo emblazoned on the front, or a bright red one with the pack and a sort of tribal dreamcatcher design. And for those of us still completely bewildered by the two teams, there’s a Team Switzerland shirt featuring images for both Edward and Jacob in a crest.
Not only does Bella have to choose between her vampire boyfriend and werewolf best friend, but she’s also being hunted by a vengeful Victoria who’s been preparing. She’s created an army of thirsty newborn vampires to attack the Cullens and Bella, meaning the wolves and vamps will have to work together to save Forks. And if that wasn’t bad enough the Volturi are also keeping a watchful eye on her since they were promised her transformation into bloodsucker in the last film. How will it all end? We’ll find out in less than 24 hours!
