I've read numerous books about movies - various companion guides, trivia guides, and, in terms of the Hunger Games, even tribute guides. I generally take them in stride since they mostly feature pictures about the upcoming film with little intriguing information.

However, the Twilight film archive is an all encompassing guide to the series. Not only does it include pictures and insight into the upcoming final film, it features information about the entire series. It goes into the various actors,
Ok, let me justify my 5 star rating. No, this is not an amazing piece of literature. Hell, I don't think it can even be called literature. It's a book about a film series.

The Complete Archive takes us through the journey of all 5 Twilight movies. Woven throughout each movie are introductions to the actors, and not just the main three. It talks about the wolves and the humans, and all the new vampires brought in during the finale one. There are memories written from producers, directors, and act

For the Twilight fans it's a great addition to their collection. The book is of good quality and has many beautiful photos. Nice extra behind the scenes info. Enjoyed the read and it's definitely a book to cherish for years to come.

I am incredibly happy with this book! I am absolutely thrilled when my dad gave this to me as a surprise. He told me that this book was sold out and when the possibility of never going to read this book is sinking in the back of my mind, he pulled out a brown paper bag containing this!

Okay, back to my review....

As a fan of this series, I would definitely say that this book really exceeded my expectations. The book is clearly for the fans and is made beautifully, not something that is just stampe

The first time I found out about this book, I was completely ecstatic. I'm such a twihard and I was so excited that they were releasing this archive type book, especially when there were 'mementos' involved.

Also, as a student, this book was quite affordable and not as expensive as I'd expected.

First time exploring the book was magical, I often had to stop and calm myself down because it brings back so much memories. I could also say cheesily, I fell in love with the saga all over again. Everyth

I wanted to get this book for two months, I'm so glad I got it, as a Twilight fan this seems great, I loved it though I hated one thing, the extra photos and stuff are stuck, if you tried to remove them you would destroy the photos, so basically don't remove anything from it's place, other than that, enjoy the book.

I recommend this to any "Twilight Saga Fan" It has everything you need to know about each movie they made and they add thing like their schedule during the movies, Autographed Posters, Copies of the Premiere passes! Trust Me if you love the "Twilight" Saga You have to add this to your "Twilight" Collection! You will love it! :)

Remember those days of Twilight pandemonium? How awesome it was to see the movie at the midnight showing? And to catch the earlier showings if you were lucky enough to get a pass?

This book brings it all back.

Not only does this book cover the Twilight premieres and the craze over Edward, Bella, and Jacob on-screen, it covers behind the scenes items and moments that were either never talked about or just overlooked during promos and such.

This took The Twilight Saga beyond the films with stories to

For a Twilight fanatic like me, I didn't expect to love this work.

I couldn't ever imagine how was really the process not to just direct or perform in a movie, but it's really impressive all the hard, intense and organized situation that is to have castings for all te actors and actresses, producers, schedules on hours to film, get the people ready, respect as much as possible the story on paper that was the result of Meyer's dream. Being on premieres, respect minimum detail, perform in a film y

This is a must for any collector of Twilight stuff. It is filled with memorabilia... premiere passes, wedding invitation, detachable pictures, signed posters, access passes, script sheets and more. There is also glimpses into the final film of the saga. Five very impressed stars for me.

I have added this as one of the final pieces of the Twilight Saga to my collection. In it you find a lot of behind the scenes information that you will not find in another publication. It's the perfect coffee table book for those who are extreme Twihards or have their own twi-cave.

Despite the series it's informing you about, for any Twilight fan, this book offers the casts' thoughts, passes, pictures, poster, set lists...etc. My sister is an avid fan so she thoroughly enjoys, I shall get the Harry Potter one :DDDD

Fun book with lots of little items in pockets. The copy I read is a library book so I'm sure it will be losing some of those items eventually.

It’s a $40 book but I got it at Books A Million for like $8!!! The interviews and information and stuff wasn’t very groundbreaking but the pictures are amazing and it has a ton of nerdy artifacts like scripts, premiere passes, VIP passes and crew calls. THERE WAS NOTHING MORE EXCITING THAN TURNING A PAGE AND FINDING AN ENVELOPE BECAUSE ANYTHING COULD BE IN IT LIKE STICKERS OR POSTERS! By far the best thing I got in this book was a beautiful print of Bella and edwards wedding invitation... I almo ...more

Loved it. Gorgeous photographs and very interesting insights, drawn sketches, and physical props (scene script) from the fangtastic and wolftacular world of the "Twilight" saga movies.

Goddammit, I am probably going to be the only [straight] guy reviewing this book. *Curse you Gods, who gave me an emotional capacity of a 15-year old girl~!
Seriously, though, this book was almost tailor-made for me, because I love books that:

- Are big in size, because big books let me overcompensate for... things;
- Have glossy pages, because I like stuff that's shiny and sparkly;
- Have a minimum of 2:1 ratio between photos/illustrations and text, because I am technically reading, even though I'm

I really enjoyed the information in this book and the many photographs it contains. My only point of contention was that it had so many of its unique elements (the invitations, pages from set, etc) stuck by glue on top of the photographs! I don't know whose idea this was, but it was a stupid one. It prevents the reader from seeing all the photographs on many of the pages, something which I found particularly annoying. One had fallen out, the wedding invitation, to be precise, leaving a mark on E ...more

This book is AMAZEBALLS. Seriously. It's really cool! I was lucky enough to find it on clearance and was so happy that I did! It has tons of pictures. There are comments from cast members, directors, production. Best if all, it has very authentic looking replicas of set call lists (I think that's what they're called), premiere tickets, and signed posters! These items are placed in little envelopes throughout the book and I was always super excited to find a page with one so I could see what was ...more

Fantastic! A must for a Twilight fan. This compilation was much more than I had expected. I will practically buy anything in print that is related to Twilight, so I was pleasantly surprised that this book was chock full of fun stuff. Not only pictures and interviews of cast and crew, but little jewels as well, in the form of (copies of?) invitations and press passes to the premiers, a wedding invitation and pages from the script and set pages. Other treasures and mementos indeed. Loved it!

This is so much cooler than I thought it would be. It's got the usual fan stuff: photos, anecdotes from actors, etc. But it also has interesting film tidbits, like replicas of the shooting schedules (call sheets, I guess they're called) from random days on set, script revisions, all kinds of cool stuff. And envelopes attached to the pages with mystery contents, postcards and photos attached that you can remove from the book. I'm having a total geek-out here.

OMG! This is the ultimate book for any twihard. It's got so much information and so much cool stuff, like script pages, shooting schedules, thoughts from the cast, reprints of tickets from red carpet events, from MTV movie awards, red carpet passes, posters signed by the cast and tons of other stuff in it. A MUST HAVE!
