Oprah Audience First to See Eclipse, Headed Next to L.A. Film Festival
05.05.10 by REELZ
The cries of jealousy can already be heard around the web. The audience at today's taping of Oprah's May 13 show got to see The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. But you don't have to wait a week to find out what they thought. The fan-packed audience is already posting Twitter reviews, compiled by Moviefone.
Here's a sampling of what they've said:
@JustSoJazzyDiva OMFG @Twilight Saga #Eclipse was so freaking good!!! Blew Twilight & New Moon out the water!!! It was AMAZING!! YES!!! The leg hitch was in the movie!!! Suuuch a hott scene!!!
@MochaChick8705 OMG!!! #Eclipse was so amazing!! Can't wait to go to the Oprah show tomorrow to see Rob, Kristen, Taylor, and Dakota!! Look for my tweets!!
@Vivian_Ortiz Eclipse was amazing! Can't wait to see the final version! Best Movie Yet.
The final cut of the movie will get its world premiere screening at next month's Los Angeles Film Festival, announced the L.A. Times today. Festival director Rebecca Yeldham defended the somewhat mainstream decision.
If we program a movie like Twilight that draws audiences that might not otherwise attend film festivals, hopefully we'll expose them to other cinematic experiences that we think are inspiring.
Only festivalgoers who purchase top-level passes ($500 to $1,000) will get into the June 24 showing. What do you think, Twilighters? Is the L.A. Film Festival the right venue for the first Eclipse screening? And don't worry, Summit confirmed that this is not the official premiere, which will still be taking place in Los Angeles next month.
