The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010)

Directed by
David Slade

Eighteen-year-old Bella (Kristen Stewart) is approaching graduation, and is struggling to deal with the romantic attentions of both her vampire boyfriend Edward (Robert Pattinson) and werewolf best friend Jacob (Taylor Lautner). Bella is eager to be 'turned' into a vampire so she can stay with Edward forever, but the old-fashioned soul insists she must marry him first.

As Bella mulls over her future, villainous vamp Victoria (Bryce Dallas Howard) is busy potting her demise, unleashing a horde of 'newborn' bloodsuckers to avenge her brother's murder. Though Jacob and Edward are natural enemies, and at odds over Bella, they are forced to unite when Edward's sister Alice (Ashley Greene) has a terrifying vision of the
newborns descending on the town of Forks.

The ferocious fantasy franchise forges onward with this third instalment, which might just be the best yet. Hard Candy director Slade takes the reigns as the relationships between the brooding teenage trio of Bella, Edward and Jacob are further explored.

Since the mega-success of the first adaptation, the Twilight films have had a remit to satisfy salivating fans eagerly awaiting the next instalment - alienating almost anyone who isn't a 14-year-old girl. But as the characters have grown up, so have the plot lines, with this film the most likely to appeal as a stand-alone blockbuster. There's more time for the supporting
cast too, which sees the return of Dakota Fanning and Anna Kendrick, and Howard replacing Rachelle Lefevre as flame-haired villainess Victoria.
