'Eclipse' battle scenes coming together

David A. Slade, director of “Twilight Saga: Eclipse” was working the Sunday after Thanksgiving, as he had already said he would.

He provided, via Twitter, a fascinating early glimpse into the editing process of what is certainly one of the most eagerly awaited films of the summer. He writes:

"Working Sunday, battle sequences coming together, first half of film feeling very emotional, still early days."

And there is no doubt a lot of film to be edited before some of the other post-production work can be done. Slade is keeping his promise to keep franchise fans up to date on the progress of the third film in the extremely lucrative “Twilight” series. Although “New Moon” was bested by the true story football saga “Blind Side” on Thanksgiving day, it did end up taking the weekend overall.

There seems to be little doubt that fans want more, although director Slade, who also directed the hard core horror movies “Hard Candy” and “30 Days of Night,” is well aware that “New Moon” is going to be a hard act to follow at the box office.

Thank you
