Sometimes, the two best words in the English language are the simplest ones: "Thank" and "You."
Now that Comic-Con 2008 is in the rearview mirror, one memory will remain for quite some time: The resounding gratitude "Twilight" fans showed to Stephenie Meyer, Catherine Hardwicke and the actors hard at work on making a film of the beloved, dog-eared tome Twilighters carry with them as if it were photos of their loved ones.
Now, the stars would like to return the favor. Just hit "play" to get a little taste of Cam Gigandet, Catherine, Stephenie and Robert Pattinson saying "thank you" to the Twilighters.
So pat yourself on the back, keep watching for more Twilight Tuesdays, and then get ready for the movie hitting theaters December 12th. By then, there should be so much shared love going around that it’ll make Edward and Bella’s romance pale in comparison.
So, in case you haven't heard, Thursday's "Twilight" panel at Comic-Con was a huge honkin' success. And just moments before Stephenie Meyer, Kristen Stewart and all the rest went on stage, I got together with the stars in a private room upstairs to interview people like Robert Pattinson But since Hall H was the hardest ticket at Comic-Con to obtain, you might be wondering how I was able to get from one place to another in mere moments.
The answer is simple: "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure."
Do you remember that classic scene where Pee-Wee is trying to get onto the Warner Bros. lot to get his bicycle back? As he's trying to figure out a plan to get past security, he sees the immortal Milton Berle walking towards the gate with a huge entourage. After a moment of inspiration, he jumps into the small group and pretends to laugh at Berle's jokes while they all walk on in together. Instant access. Read More...
Our Robert Pattinson Super-Duper "Twilight" Tuesday Spectacular just went live over at MTV.com, and I do sincerely hope that you enjoy spending the day with your favorite actor in the "Twilight" universe.
I have to say from a personal standpoint, that as I've interviewed the stars of the December 12th film over the past few months and gotten to know them, they really are as nice, normal and down-to-earth as you would hope. There's Mike/Mike (who does a mean Peter Griffin imitation), Jackson Rathbone (whom I had a great conversation with about our shared love of all things Daniel Johnston), and so many others. Often when I meet a new person who finds out what I do for a living, their first question is "So, which celebrities are the biggest jerks in real life?" Thanks to "Twilight," I have a few new names of nice celebs to drop, so I can balance out my karma.
RPattz, however, might just be the coolest. Some jealous guys will always look at him and think "pretty boy," but he's as carefree and sloppy as the rest of us dudes – he just looks a lot better in that jeans and t-shirt combo. Rob is happy to answer any question you could throw his way, is a talented actor, and gets a kick out of all the "Twilight" insanity that just makes him that much more fun to watch. Read More...
How many of you have been good "Twilighters" this week?
If you have, then please enjoy the fruit of your labors and watch this brand-new "clip" from the upcoming film. Santa Claus has come early this year.
As for the rest of you (and you know who you are!), you've already seen this footage because it appeared on the test-discs sent to film critics who were supposed to use them to review the DVD for "Penelope." Somebody somewhere held up a camera to their TV set and uploaded that footage onto the web last weekend, and lots of people were treated to footage of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson in Edward's bedroom, discussing her hatred of dancing before he whisks her out the window for some serious spider-monkey time.
The leak even prompted the studio behind "Twilight" to send out a message to anyone who might do such a thing: Read More...
My first thought is: WOW! "Twilight" made the cover of "Entertainment Weekly"!
I guess this means the cat is officially out of the bag, Twilighters. The little secret that you folks have lovingly shared for years is now famous enough to sell big-time magazines. And after the high-visibility release of next month's "Breaking Dawn" and all the TV appearances, billboards and events that will build up to the movie’s release (including Comic-Con later this month), it's just going to continue to grow.

When we arranged for "Twilight" star Robert Pattinson to drop by our LA office to surprise our Movie Awards guest blogger (and "Twilight" superfan) Laura Culpepper, our eagle-eyed reporter noticed something just a tad familiar about his street clothes. Find out what we mean in the video below.
The MTV Movie Awards will air live on MTV on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET, with MTV News' "Coming Attractions" preshow kicking the evening off at 7:30 p.m. ET featuring an exclusive scene from "Twilight" along with interviews with Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Cam Gigandet! Meanwhile, stay tuned to the MTV Movies Blog and MovieAwards.MTV.com.
Our guest blogger Laura Culpepper will be covering the highlights from now through the big show on Sunday, so check in daily as she live-blogs her Movie Awards experience!
So, MTV knows I'm a huge Twilight fan. I was unsure if I would do anything related to "Twilight" while I was here since Robert, Kristen, and Cam were only going to be at the awards and I wasn't sure what I'd be doing then, so I didn't arrive with any expectations.
I woke up this morning and was taken to one of the two MTV offices here in L.A. to shoot my video introduction to readers on the blog. I was pretty nervous because I am a horrible speaker and not used to looking into a camera or anything. I was filming the fifth or sixth take of my introduction, when Robert Pattinson tapped me on the shoulder and asked me if I wanted to be one of the first people to see the first scene from "Twilight" (you can watch it too during the Movie Awards preshow this Sunday, June 1 at 7:30pm ET!). The rest is history.

We know, we know: When you're a Twilighter, there's only one thing that bites harder than Stephenie Meyer's vampires -- and that's being in the U.K. or Canada on a Twilight Tuesday.
It's a long, complicated matter of copyright that I'd love to explain to you -- but there's a good reason why Larry didn't go to law school. Instead, I feel your pain every time we post cool new "Twilight" videos like this one, this one, or this one, and our friends in a few international territories get that dreaded "Not accessible outside the U.S." message.
So, for all of you screaming "Egads, governor!" or "Take off, eh!" I have some very good news. When we premiere the First! Scene! Ever! From "Twilight" at the MTV Movies Awards pre-show (7:30 pm ET) this Sunday, millions of people all over the world will be able to share in our first taste of blood, romance and Robert Pattinson.

In the Stephenie Meyer novel "Twilight," many scenes compete for the most romantic moment, but many agree that the winner is when Edward Cullen sits down at a piano and plays a heartfelt song written for his love Bella.
With the film version on its way, an army of fans have been lobbying Meyer and director Catherine Hardwicke on the songs they think should be used as "Bella's Lullaby." Now, we finally have an answer – and as life imitates art, it should get Twilighters squealing in anticipation.
"Yes, it does exist in the movie," Kristen Stewart told me while I was interviewing her and Robert for the article that just went live here, on the topic of "Bella's Lullaby." "And cutely enough, Rob is writing it on the piano as we speak." Read More...
