The Twilight Saga: New Moon & The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
Pass the popcorn...
Canada’s cities and landscapes have a starring role in some of Hollywood’s hottest films, from mind-bending blockbusters to stylish art-house favourites. Vancouver and Toronto have become well known colloquially as Hollywood North, but film directors have a keen eye for Canadian aesthetics from coast to coast. Grab a drink and a snack and settle in for the feature presentation...
Vancouver’s ethereal rainforests and mountainous surroundings are a perfect atmospheric backdrop for the Twilight Saga’s series of vampire sensations, starring teenage heartthrob Robert Pattinson along with Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner.
Aside from its presence on the silver screen, Vancouver’s metropolitan flair was a hit with the cast: The chic Opus Hotel played hotspot host for numerous late-night parties, Rodney’s Oyster House served up scrumptious crustaceans straight from the sea, and Pattinson chose Glowbal Grill and Satay Bar to celebrate his 23rd birthday bash. Twilight fans will recognize the Cullen’s house in the British Properties, the woodlands where Bella is dumped by Edward, and Vancouver Film Studios, where many of the film sets were created.
Frontier Canada can take you to Vancouver and show you the sights.
