Storytime with LTT: Breaking Dawn Red Carpet and our new obsessions & I gotta feeling…

They actually let us in!!

Dear LTT-ers,

As you know, Monday we attended the black carpet premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (say that 5 times fast after spending 4 hours on the carpet, not eating and an open bar at the after party). Since we were asked to represent Letters to Twilight on the Twilight fansite/press section of the carpet we came prepared with a handycam, a couple iPhones, questions and some killer heels.

So since we fancy now, I’ll just let us, via video, take it away with the introduction…

Please forgive us for the WORST camera angle of ALL time. ALL.TIME.

After a microphone snafu which made me beg like 10 friends for microphones we picked up our GOLD mic (which would later turn into a talking point during our interviews) and busted arse to Nokia Live because we thought we were late to check in but as with all events, they were running way behind. So while we stood in the press check in line between some old grizzled Australian cameraman talking to some newswoman with a football helmet for hair about their days at the ’96 Olympics I gave myself a little sidewalk mani


.

After some mob rule style check in we found this little beauty greeting us…

We knew we had arrived.
.


We then met up with Val from Twilight Poison who we would be teamed up with that night along with Lindsay from Team Twilight and Tracy from Twilightish.
.


After we sat up the too short tripod, plugged in the spray painted gold microphone I borrowed from a friend and the handycam I stole from my Dad who bought it to capture my new niece (nothing but the best yall!) we decided to run around like we knew what we were doing getting b-roll and trying not to photo/video bomb EVERYONE’s intro videos… minus that blond kid who looked like he was from the Disney Channel. I definitely ran into him while he was asking some fans about being Team Edward or Team Jacob. Team give me a break people!! COME ON!

After we were all set up UC was whisked away to a different section and I picked up that klassy gold mic cause it was time to DO THIS! Let me just give a shout out to Lindsay from Team Twilight because we rocked the questions together for a lot of our interviews. Between us working the questions and record buttons and juggling mics and press alerts and Vale and Tracy on still cameras we were working ALL the angles. That is definitely what she said.

So of course we got about 8 gabillion little interviews with every vampire in the free world from A to Z  list cast and we’ll definitely bring you those soon because there’s some CLASSIC moments in those along with some wah wah waaaaah moments. In the spirit of keeping this post from taking us 10 hours to write we’ll bring you the best of the best in this post…

Speaking of the best… THIS GUY!!! Wyck is officially my new obsession… well besides our two other new obsessions whom we shall reveal later but srsly… WYCK GODFREY you guys. Letters to Wyck… Oh wait that exists. Enjoy his little dance.

Speaking of seeing Renesmee here’s little Mackenzie Foy making her first Twilight appearance! How flipping cute is this kid?

And really, the first family mother and daughter in blue?! Stop is guuuuiiize! Next you’re gonna tell me you scheduled a Christmas card photo shoot on the beach in matching white tshirts and blue jeans.
.

Dude, Bella and Edward don’t need Prof. Kinsey in BD Part 2?! Hold on to your butts ladies cause Fade to Sad could get Fade to HOT DAMN in part 2 if Bill’s not pulling a Rob on us and totally making shiz up. #TeamBill
.

And the winner of Best Dressed at the Breaking Dawn Pt 1 Premiere award goes to…
TWO WAY TIE between Jacky’s creepy crushed velvet children’s birthday party magician look and Dean’s girlfriend (she likes man jewelry) with the stomach cut out jump suit. All that’s missing from this look is a velvet turban… and regret.
.

That’s right we asked a good question Melissa!

Then this happened…

Yes, he was this close to me… This will get it’s own letter at LTR and it’s own video because moments of immense hope and moments of great lose deserve to be immortalized forever on a blog. Duh.

We didn’t have too long to cry because things on the red carpet move like Bella driving a motorcycle (Twilight jokes!): at break neck speed, throwing caution to the win, with the hopes of hearing Rob, I mean Edward’s voice and sometimes ending in a big crash and burn. Oh it happened.

But with tragedy comes greatness… enter Stephenie Meyer…

.

Then THIS happened…

Yes, that is for all you LTT readers and commenters. The.Best.

After this came Taylor and Kristen and Rob again but because of time constraints and the film starting we could only get within inches of them, gold mic poised and question hanging in mid air before they were whisked away by handlers. “BOO you whores.” But really after that kind of shout out from Stephenie who needs the trinity……… this time.

There is SOOOOOO much more to come we can’t possibly cover it all in one post so stick with us… same LTT time, same LTT channel…

Moon and UC

PS you guys… the MOVIE… the movie…the.movie. we’ll talk soon.
PPS I’m going to act like my weird valley girl-esque accent can not be heard in all these videos. Please also do the same

So were you watching the live feeds at home? Were you there at the premiere? Are you in serious love with Wyck?

We couldn’t have done it without our partners in crime on the carpet: Twilight Poison, Team Twilight and Twilightish. Go visit them, follow them on Twitter and like them on Facebook to see their take on the premiere!

Remember when Stephenie Meyer mentioned us in the Eclipse DVD Commentary?

Dear Stephenie,

Sooooo…. this happened…

click to enlarge for massive awesomeness

Saturday, @Raze71 tweeted us this screen shot from the Eclipse commentary between you and producer Wyck Godfrey. We freaked, we thought we were being Punk’d, we freaked again, we virtually high fived, you said the word “JORTS!” then we had a 45 minute conversation about how we couldn’t believe it.

Nice Jorts, Wyck! You're down with the kids

Then the haters came to play. And as much as they tried to rain on our parade (and boy, did they try) we refused to play that game because you know what, you decided to mention JORTS and US in your commentary and not them so we win and they can SDASTFU (yea, I came up with that one in a fit of crazy emailing between UC and me. have fun figuring it out).

We get that we don’t appeal to everyone and we don’t want to. All we’ve ever wanted to do was make each other laugh. We started that way almost two years ago and we will end it by doing that or die trying. We play by our own rules and we’re unapologetic for that. But that may just be why you’ve read and mentioned us a few times. Honestly, we don’t know why you’ve read us but we are forever appreciative and actually it makes us like you even more because we think you ‘get it’ and that couldn’t make us more proud and make the buzz from our opposition nothing more than an annoying fly buzzing around us that needs to be crushed.

So uh Taylor... I hear they're called Jorts...

Now we would normally ignore these losers who believe anything they hear but they’re so wildly misinformed about us I just have to say one thing to them: WE DON’T HATE KRISTEN STEWART.

Oh and get a life.

Whew. So seriously though Stephenie you said JORTS in the commentary to Wyck Godfrey! That’s like your mom saying “fart” in church or your grandma saying MILF. It’s pretty amazing.

Thank you.

PS Have a very Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow everyone!

EVERYONE head over to LTR to read a letter that NEEDS to be read NOW!!!!

Can you believe this??? Cray cray to the max yall! I can’t wait for the DVD to come out in a few weeks. AH!

Breaking Dawn, can we just not and say we did?

Dear Breaking Dawn producers-

Can we just NOT and say we did? Or actually we don’t even have to say we did. Let’s just use some sort of flashback or dream sequence and call it a day. What am I asking that we avoid you ask? The birth scene… yup, I’m just gonna ask that we don’t. I was just reading an interview with Wyck Godrey, producer of the Twilight franchise where he explained that he wife was an OB-GYN and that they may need her on set to make sure Edward is making the proper incision for an “oral c-section.” SERIOUSLY? Let’s just not. Please? As if I didn’t already take enough flack for the scene in the book and various other Twilight shenanigans that need explaining to civilians. I just can’t shoulder this one. I’m sorry. I’ll explain sparkling vampires, hot and cold body temperatures, celebacy, mind reading, vegetarian vampirism, bad wigs and anything else about Twilight but I just can’t handle explaining why Edward is tearing into Bella’s womb on a 60 foot screen at midnight.

Can I offer some suggestions or even ideas for how to get around this one so you’ll have more time to focus on how you’re going to make Jacob imprinting on Renesmee NOT weird for the outsider? Oh and nice job side stepping the Jared and Claire imprinting business in Eclipse. Don’t think we didn’t notice!

But anyhooozle, maybe since the story is told from Bella’s perspective we can go inside her mind again a la Twilight the movie after she was biten by James and Edward sucked the venom out. We saw a very abstract, beautiful montage of scenes from the movie, future, past, present, scenery, etc all set to music (sung by Robert Pattinson… oh heeeeey!). Just a thought and then we could see Renesemee lifted up Simba on Pride Rock style and CUT TO BLACK, end of Breaking Dawn Part 1, meet us back here in 2012 same Cullen time, same Cullen channel. OR we see Jacob headed down to kill off the demon spawn yet he’s oddly drawn to her and he doesn’t know why and then BOOM CUT. Multiple options people! I’ve thought about this a lot. Clearly.

Then of course, because I love the idea, let’s make part 2 of Breaking Dawn in 3-D because really it’s just a cool idea. Think about how Stephenie Meyer describes Bella’s first moments as a vampire. She sees light reflection off particles in the air, everyone looks so much different and more beautiful… imagine when she takes that first leap off a rock and over the creek behind the Cullen house IN 3D! It’s like we can experience Bella’s new vampirism right along with her. Sure 3D the cool thing to do in movies now and it can be hella lame but it works right along with the story line. LET’S DO THIS!

True luv

And theeeeeennn there’s that whole Jacob imprinting on Renesmee business. We all know you’re gonna get slaughtered in the critiques for it, we know there’s gonna be jokes EVERYWHERE about it. Let’s just take this next few years to ACCEPT IT NOW. But can I suggest a few things? The way Stephenie describes their imprinting is just so interesting and beautiful…

“Everything inside me came undone as I stared at the tiny porcelain face of the half-vampire, half-human baby. All the lines that held me to my life were sliced apart in swift cuts, like clipping the strings to a bunch of balloons. Everything that made me who I was – my love for the dead girl upstairs, my love for my father, my loyalty to my new pack, the love for my other brothers, my hatred for my enemies, my home, my name, my self – disconnected from me in that second – snip, snip, snip – and floated up into space. I was not left drifting. A new string held me where I was.

The gravity of the earth no longer tied me to the place where I stood. It was the baby girl in the blond vampire’s arms that held me here now. Renesmee.”

Jacob Black, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 18, p.360

Yup, pretty much how I see it

So can we just preserve what little personal pride we’re going to have left when all the vultures and civilians start making this the joke on all the late night chat shows and SNL. Can we do another Bella montage type idea but instead with Jacob where as he’s imprinting we see an OLDER, GROWN UP version of Renesmee and not a kid strapped to Taylor Lautner in a Baby Bjorn! PLEASE! Please.

So producers can we just take these ideas or some other phenominal one you have that does NOT include an on call OB-GYN for authenticity’s sake in the “oral cesarian” and run with them? Please? Cause I really don’t want to have to say you did, when you didn’t have to.

The Lock-NESS-blog-monster, 
Themoonisdown

What ideas do you have to make some of the Breaking Dawn moment a little more palletable for the movie go-ing audience. What can we do for the people who just DON’T KNOW?

News on Breaking Dawn Production aka NO news on Breaking Dawn Production!

Dear Twilight and well, Breaking Dawn I suppose…

Today two posts came out referencing news behind the production of Breaking Dawn. While a few months ago we all thought making BD was a foregone conclusion and Summit was just waiting for New Moon to shatter box office records to make it official it’s been almost a month and a half since New Moon’s release and still no announcement. Since news on the twi front has been about as sparse as smiles at a KStew photoshoot, so any sort of news to come out will indefinitely make waves. But after reading both posts from the bitchtastic Ted C and a dude in his mom’s basement in North East Philly we learn… exactly… NOTHING. Why yes, it’s like a Robsten rumor… a lot of drama, a lot of words, a lot of retweets, a lot of “maybe’s” but no actual substance or truth. Someone at the LA Times spoke with producer Wyck Godrey and got this bit of totally evasive information regarding the splitting of BD into two films  “…If it’s not organic, I don’t think it will be done, and if it is, it will be…” Wow, heavy.

Breaking Dawn = tons more creepy images made by fans!

So we still don’t know if it will be made into two films (please say yes), whether Summit will hire geneticists to create a human vampire hybrid in their lair of doom (aka studio offices in Santa Monica) to play Renesmee, whether Taylor Lautner will in fact act out imprinting on a newborn baby, if Nikki Reed and KStew can patch up their differences long enough to play convincing as frenemies on screen, will Jacob and Leah spend 3/4ths of the movie running around the perimeter of the Cullen’s house “on patrol” thus reenacting the most boring parts of BD, will there be a behind the scene documentary on the making of Isle Esme which features all the “fade to black” scenes they cut out?

Sooooo many questions and ZERO answers.

Find out what we DO know about Breaking Dawn after the jump
