The first images from the third installment of The Twilight Saga, entitled Eclipse, have jumped the gun and appeared online before People magazine could even debut them.

(Man, it is getting hard out there for these paper mags… Luckily you have your online ‘zines like Screen Rant™ bringing you the news first!)

This first Eclipse images shows us (what else) interspecies lovers Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) getting intimate in a nice plush green forest, complete with white flowers. Every tweenage girl’s dream.

The images have obviously been scanned out of a copy of People, and out of respect to the mag for doing the legwork to get the shots, I’m not going to post them here – but I will link you Twiehards out there to where you can see them:




We’ll update with official images once they’re (promptly) released, so be sure to check back.

Does those photos fill you Twilight Saga fans with flutters of joy?

I know that Eclipse deals with the Edward/Bella/Jacob love triangle that kicks off in next month’s New Moon, while a bunch of vampires and werewolves are busy warring with some psycho vampires. I know that we’re going to see some steamy three-way vampire/human/werewolf romance set in the mountains (is it too early to start making “Brokefang Mountain” jokes?). And the fact that its all going to be captured by 30 Days of Night director David Slade just blows my mind…

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is slated to rush into theaters on June 30, 2010.
