Mark Cotta Vaz conduz o leitor por um passeio VIP pelos bastidores da aguardada sequência cinematográfica da série Crepúsculo. O livro mostra quais foram as inspirações do diretor já indicado ao Oscar Chris Weitz e de sua equipe de criação para levar às telas o envolvente romance de Stephenie Meyer, e desvenda os segredos por trás das cenas de romance e de todo o suspense e a ação entre vampiros e lobisomens.

Em edição de luxo, impressa em cores, repleta de fotos inéditas, entrevistas e comentários sobre locações, figurinos, cenários e efeitos visuais, é possível acompanhar detalhes da elaboração do roteiro do filme, saber como foi feita a preparação das cenas mais importantes e desvendar o passo a passo da mágica criação dos lobos por computação gráfica. O livro traz ainda imagens e depoimentos exclusivos do elenco – incluindo os astros Kristen Stewart (Bella Swan), Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen) e Taylor Lautner (Jacob Black).… (more)
