Countdown to Eclipse in Pictures * concludes with Day 8 as today is the day The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is released, although I'm sure a fair few of us, myself included, saw midnight screenings last night (review will be up later today, but I'm relieved to say it's very enjoyable).
Over the past week we've looked at many images from the series from most used to least used, Cullen couples, Wolf Pack, Bella & Jacob and of course Bella & Edward. But, we always need a good fight too, don't we? So, in the spirit of conflict here are your baddies from the saga!

Wow, looking at these pictures make the release of Twilight feel so long ago, even though it was only 20 or so months. Amazing to think at the time of release that Cam Gigandet was the only very well known actor of the bunch - and now they are pretty much all superstars. But, back to the images: I love the nomads, Rachelle Lefevre as Victoria in particular. They have a feral fierceness that is in strong contrast to everything else in the film. They are powerful, dangerous and unpredictable. Love them.

From one extreme to the next, Twilight has the feral nomads and in New Moon walk the refined, although brutal, Volturi including Michael Sheen as Aro. Great casting for the Volturi, although I was at the time and still rather suprized at how traditional old school vampire stylings they went with. But... did I mention Michael Sheen?

New film, new conflicts and newborn vampires, and an old feral friends in a new way as the role of Victoria is re-cast with Bryce Dallas Howard.
* Countdown to Eclipse in Pictures was a daily series for 1 week enjoying the images of The Twilight Saga in anticipation of the release of Eclipse. I hope you enjoyed the series!
