HORRIBLE. They just slap any ol thing together anymore. It's the beginning of the end for this saga.
when i showed my husband the official eclipse poster he said "it looks exactly like the New Moon one they just darkened it up.." He's right, breaking dawn better be the shiizz or imma be maaaaaad lol.
i agree cheapies000! i can tell this movie is going to blow! i love the saga but i mean really! this is what you want to give us for an intense book/movie. its absolutely ridiculous! the poster, book cover, jaspers hair whats next that theyll ruin for us!
yeah disappointing now. i have to say i'm not as excited as I thought I was going to be however this was my least favourite book. Fingers crossed Breaking Dawn will not be a disaster.p.s I really like the Bella cover but i agree with DarlingV's husband. it looks exactly like the New Moon one. It makes it look as if the effort was slap dash. It's ashame because the books are so much better than the films. God i hope people don't hate on me for saying that.anyways, rant over.x
Bleh! A novel so full of urgency and they give us this?
i faaaakin love it ookay?yu guys gotta quit being so picky *rollseye*haven yu heard of book is always better than the movie? well there trying!!!D O N T HATE A PP RE CI A TE got it? get it? GOOOD.
An epic book made into an epic fail.

Boo. I don't like it. I hate it when they use movie pictures as book covers..it just ruins it.
Well I'm pretty let down as Eclipse is my all time favorite in the saga. But I guess it could be worse... at least its Edward's reflection in her iris and not Jacob. I guess they're symbolizing her mind's eye here?Still what were they thinking! Its just bizarre :/
@ Anon 6:57 - What are you? 12?
holy crap. I really cant believe how every message board I go on every one is being a brat about these pictures or the wigs. Seriously, if you dont like the stuff..dont go see it or buy it. Nothing positive anywhere!!!!! I personally like the new covers. I am just excited that they are continuing on and didnt stop at the first movie. I think everyone has WAY TOO MUCH FREE TIME TO COMPLAIN ABOUT PETTY STUFF!
they could be a lot worse but is it just me or does the first one remind you of the cover for The Host, what with the reflection and all?
yep the host is exactly what I thought of!
...well the Eclipse poster really sucks. But I don't mind the first cover, it actually looks pretty good. But other than that, I just hope Breaking Dawn comes out great :/
People really really really need to stop freaking out over what the posters look like and what the characters look like and what the covers of the book look like! No matter what the cover looks like its the same beloved story we all fell in love with. And with the movie you guys have seen the trailer and I freakin love it!!!!!!!!! A poster will not define it, just like the characters look won't. But nobody listens to me what do I know.
Oh and another thing stop saying I hope Breaking Dawn is better when we don't even know if eclipse is good or bad yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!
AMEN TO THAT!!!
this is so crazy. I usually get excited on these boards. Now I am depressed and cringing everytime something new goes up for people to tear apart.
Halleluiagh however you spell that.... Theres some sanity!!
Nah she has no chin in this picture most unflattering picture for the first one, however i actually do love the 2nd one :)
@Maddie Allyssa I totally agree with you.I don't judge before I see it or read it
lol she has no chin, her eyebrows are too dark???this is soo funny to meJapsers wig, bellas wig, jacobs shirt, edwards car..oh yeah that was the last movie...people complain so much with each movie I am starting to get a headache. Remember when everyone hated Rob for the part of Edward?? I dont think anyone is happy at all either!!!
I think they are continuing on with the same feel that New Moon left off with. A more professional look.Polished. It looks nice to me. I love the colors as well.
I think they are okay, the first one isn't too bad. I kinda like how she has Edward's reflection in her eye. I do think they could have put a little more thought into this. I wish everyone would stop being cheap with this saga. They act like they don't know if this is going to make money, come on LoL. I still think the movie is going to be great :)
I think because we have so much access to photoshop software and fan made pictures and stuff, we expect the pros to do better. I think that's why we get so disappointed. But its really not cheap, they are new pictures, it is a different movie. I honestly think they are holding it back because the movie isn't out until June. They spoiled us early with all The New Moon stuff.
has anyone relized that the first cover of bella's face is the EXACT type of cover for all the "vampire diaries" books?...which came out in 2003 or something... just sayin...
All of you who say 'this movie is going to blow' are really ridiculous. We've only seen a HANDFUL of IMAGES from the movie and a HANDFUL of scenes. When this movie proves to be as good as I think it's going to be, you all better not jump on the 'I knew it would be great' band wagon.So immature.
I love the first cover and my boyfriend(yeah shocker there I know) agrees
Personally, I love Kristen no matter what, in any role, with mullet or no mullet, so I say WOO HOO to the first one, 'cause now I get a copy of Eclipse with Kristen as Bella ALL UP ON THE COVER. :DThe second one...sure! Great! I'll buy it and throw it in my collection! I know, we're all afraid of change, especially when we've seen so little Eclipse footage so far, but let's all keep a big open mind and give David Slade our undying (get it? get it?) support, 'cause that's what we Twilight freaks do!
obviously the complaining has taken a toll on people..the twilight lexicon board is closed..see it really is sooo crazy
The covers are great.The movie is going to kick ass.You will all eat your words.Way to be fairweather fans.
YES! Thank you, Becki!!! You said it!
I actually really like the first cover. It looked familiar though, and I realized its so similar to the cover of "go ask alice"!
AHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHADid they REALLY put edward in her eyeball? That is the lamest, dorkiest idea ever. How embarrassing.The poster is boring.I am hoping that my expectations are so low I'll actually like the movie!
I have a feeling that, from what i've seen, Eclipse is going to be a major dissapointment, and the same for Breaking Dawn. I really hope not, but i just have that feeling :/
@everyone who doesn't like what is being said. We are true fans of the Twilight Series and we are worried with what they are going to do with this movie. We had so much more information, pictures, movie clips with New Moon we could see the general direction of the movie and it got us all excited. There isn't much being released on this movie and the fact that not long ago they changed the Editor, teaser trailer were not being released when we were originally told etc....This has us worried. I am on the side with I am worried about this movie and I am HOPING to be blown away!!It is because we are all so passionate about these movies that we want the best for the movies. They are apart of us.The new posters, what do they represent in the movie? I seriously do not get the eye thing??? The E/J/B poster is darker for the darker themes in this movie, but it does look like the New Moon poster, could have changed it up. There are many things in this book/movie that could be poster worthy.We are all here because we are fans....P.S. My opinion, of course, but I hope they make Breaking Dawn better than the book....
I guess I'm in the minority... I don't mind the covers.
They should make another one with Jacob in her other eye and when you bring them together they should be one pic. It would be super sweet when u bring them together. Or they should have had her whole face ans one in each eye.

the one based off the poster is ok, was disappointed with the alt version though. it could only have been more cheeseball if it was a full face view and they 'shopped jacob's head into her other eye. (attn: eclipse marketing people, please dont do this)
Fifteen years old should talk like young ladies...if you read all the comments no one hear has used foul language until you posted. They are called opinions dear.
actually Stephanie wrote these books for her own enjoyment. Not youngsters. She is in her 30's.It was her publisher that put them in the young adult category.
Um one of the Anons said that the Lexicon is closed and its not. Its April First. Happy April Fools Day!!! They wouldn't close it down because of crazy really picky fans! ;) Okay I need to stop commentiing on this...
In general, I don't like when they put movie pictures on book covers. That being said, I thought the book covers AND the poster were laaaame. I mean, I get that the whole franchise revolves around Bella, Edward, and Jacob... but there is other stuff going on in Eclipse and the other books. Throw in a little newborn army, or Victoria, or whatever. Not just those 3 standing there staring outwards. Total lack of creativity on their part.I'm sure the Eclipse movie will be as good as the other two movies. It's not like any of them are cinematic genius, they just represent the book series that we all loved. Which, frankly, is the reason I love books turned into movies - seeing them on the screen is awesome, even if they aren't genius.And since I'm a perfectionist/a little OCD, when they eff up the details of the story delivered by the books (Edward's bronze hair, silver volvo, etc.) - THAT BOTHERS ME. I'M BOTHERED. But the lack of awesome wigs doesn't bother me. I'd rather have wig Bella in Eclipse than greasy dyed hair Bella in New Moon.
Wow. Some people have some serious growing up to do..
It's really boring...no big deal.
Anytime Bella takes centre stage, the material looks great.
In New Moon when Jacob, as a wolf, looked at Bella it was with one eye. This time it'sBella looking at Edward. The colors in the Bella one match the theme used in the series. I'll add the one with Bella and her eyeon the prize.
I looooove the first one! I don't understand what you all are going on about... be happy people! I, myself, prefer simplicity as opposed to chaos when it comes to book covers/posters etc. I think they represent the book quite well, without going overboard.
as a graphic designer i can tell it sucks people the whol eye-edward thing?who the hell made it? any good designer would make it look better.sorry.the second one is decent.for all the money Sum ...???they could try better
still pumped for the movie, not going to judge based on the poster. Has anyone else realized that its shaped like a triangle as in love triangle? Or am I just a big nerd?
Wow! go away for awhile, and all hell breaks loose with this site. I think they look ok and agree with the Host look a like. Posters never have a result of how a movie will be... there are some great movie posters out there that sucked as movies and visa versa. I'm sure it will all be fine in the end!!
on another note... has anyone else noticed Bella's eyebrows are getting thicker/darker with each movie? hee. they look better. her eyebrows in NM were kinda weird and thin at the ends.
hey, I started to re- read Eclipse again so I can get excited for the movie..maybe the stressed out folks here should do the same!
Becki's comment is the best one on this entire thread. Everyone who's dissing should be ashamed.
Should I dare say..I like them both? I really do.
I really like the books and have been kinda disappointed with the movies but this poster doesn't look that bad. Granted it does kinda look like the new moon one but who cares! We haven't seen the movie yet so we don't know what it is gonna be like so just deal with what we've got! Dang!
Well I like em both i think they're both amazing ^_^ so if any1 disagrees well i dont give a fu** its my opinion

The first cover looks very similar to the covers of the Vampire Diaries.......
feels like there trying to rip off the vampire diaries and to the person that said it came out in 2003 it came out in 1992, might i add with the first vegitarian vampire as the main lead. edwards not so original if you get me.
