The first images from the Seattle set of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse have made their way online…and it's a smoocher! Yes, Eclipse was filming a scene under a Seattle bridge last night, and while it didn't include Bella or Edward, we do have our first look at Bryce Dallas Howard as Victoria. You'll remember that Howard replaced Rachelle Lafevre in the role due to scheduling conflicts a few weeks ago, and that casting move sparked a war of words between the actress and the studio – with each side claiming they were right and the other was wrong.

Obviously it all got sorted out, though, and Eclipse nabbed itself an actress with a little more street cred…if you know what I mean. And from the looks of it, they put Howard right to work in a scene where she's smooching it up with Xavier Samuel, who plays Riley. Apparently (and correct me if I'm wrong – I haven't read the books), Victoria seduces Riley in order to get him to create some new vampires.
Lainey Gossip is the one who snagged the images, and after checking out the two we have here, you can see the rest over there. What do you think about Howard as Victoria? Do you think she'll do a better job than Lafevre? Or did Summit make a big mistake when they re-cast the role?
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse hits theaters on June 30, 2010.
