MTV has an interesting look at how they think Eclipse could gain an even larger audience following than either Twilight or New Moon. Read more below:
Amp up theromance
“Twilight” established the potent romance between Bella and Edward, but “New Moon” sacrificed much of the chemistry for the sake of Bella’sbond with Jacob. Granted, the reason why Edward was mostly absent during “New Moon” was because he broke up with Bella and was moping around in an apartment for months on end, but Chris Weitz forgot to reestablish why exactly Bella and Edward were so in love. With “Eclipse,” we hope David Slade explores their connection, especially with so many fans jumping ship to Team Jacob after seeing Taylor Lautner’s abs.
Expand the secondary characters
Even though Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are the biggest draws for most fans, secondary characters like Anna Kendrick’s Jessica, Mike Welch’s Mike Newton, Dakota Fanning’s Jane and Michael Sheen’s Aro were key to some of the most fun parts of “New Moon.” “Eclipse” introduces a whole slew of new characters (Riley and Leah, anyone?) and we hope some of the old favorites aren’t sacrificed for the new, especially with Anna Kendrick’s potential Oscar win for “Up in the Air.” Plus, there’s the fact that the scenes in which Bella interacts with humans (like her father, played by Billy Burke, and the high school students) are some of the most interesting and well-acted in the series thus far.
