At the premiere of Eclipse, Fandango caught up with Quinton Aaron, who played Michael Oher in The Blind Side. "I’m not really into the love story part – but I like the action part of it, with the vampires and werewolves – it’s good fun," he said.

Ashley Greene, who plays Alice Cullen, revealed she's itching to do all kinds of genres in the future: "I definitely really want to do a kick-ass film. I'd love to do like a Tarantino-style film, very stylized. Comedy is something that I'm definitely looking to get into. I had a little taste of it and I do intend on going to classes for it because I think it's a different muscle, and it's hard to find female comedians."
