Eclipse, the third film in The Twilight Saga franchise, starts off in dark and rainy Seattle, where a young college student from Forks, Riley Biers (Xavier Samuel), is being chased and hunted by something. Turns out, it is Victoria (Bryce Dallas Howard), who turns him so he can build her a vampire army. She still wants revenge on Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) for killing her boyfriend James in the first movie, by killing his love Bella (Kristen Stewart).
Alice has a vision and the newspapers scream “serial killer,” so the Cullens get ready to do battle. They realize that Victoria is in charge of this mess, and the Cullens know they are outnumbered. They accept (Edward reluctantly) the assistance of the werewolves, of course including Jacob (Taylor Lautner), to help protect Bella. The boys aren’t happy about it, but go along with it because they both love her.
Bella, in turn, finally realizes she loves both of them, and this is where the true “TEAM EDWARD” and “TEAM JACOB” came from. Jacob and Edward spend a lot of time bickering while trying to protect her with a few zongers thrown in, “Doesn’t he own a shirt?” Bella does love Jacob, but Edward is her true love and he finally kills Victoria for her, after a fierce werewolf-Cullen-newbie vamp battle.
Wedding plans are afoot!
