Need to brush up on your "Twilight" saga vampire romance before "Breaking Dawn" comes out on Nov. 18?
You can now do just that, big-screen style. Summit Entertainment has announced that it will re-release "Twilight," "New Moon" and "Eclipse" in theaters in the weeks leading up to "Dawn's" premiere. Check your local theaters for exact schedules, but the "Twilight" screenings will start Nov. 1, "New Moon" on Nov. 8, and "Eclipse" on Nov. 15.
To stir your "Twilight" blood further, here are our favorite scenes from each of the films.
The prom, maybe? Are you kidding? VAMPIRE BASEBALL! They even have old-fashioned uniforms and striped socks, and they can play only in thunderstorms because the thunder hides the incredibly loud noise generated when they hit the ball at approximately eight jillion miles per hour. And once the Cullens suit up to toss the ol' horsehide around, whoops, three uninvited vamps show up and start gunning for Bella. But in the meantime, VAMPIRE BASEBALL!
'New Moon' Oh, the Volturi. Forget Bella and Edward and Jacob. I would read an entire series of books just about them. Anyway, Edward thinks Bella is dead so he goes to Volterra, Italy, to reveal himself as a vampire in public, knowing the regal Volturi vamps will have to kill him then. So in the middle of an Italian square full of red-robed extras, he de-shirts, and Bella races across the square just in the nick of time to save him. Team Volturi!
'Eclipse' At long last, Jacob gets a little lovin'. Long story short: Bella is freezing and Edward can't warm her since he's a vampire and is icy cold all the time. So she gets in a tent and snuggles with a shirtless, hunky Jacob. Then while she sleeps, the boys have a taunt-off. It's deliciously sixth grade, and Taylor Lautner looks really good without a shirt.
