Die-hard "Twilight" fans are counting down the days to the opening of "Eclipse." But they aren't the only ones who have been eagerly anticipating the release of this film."I think people are going to love the movie, everyone who sees this," said actor Jackson Rathbone.

Actors Jackson Rathbone, and Kellan Lutz are part of a large group of actors returning for part three of the "Twilight" saga, "Eclipse." The actors believe this film has something for everyone.

"It is very much an action movie and still with the romance," said Rathbone. "With 'Twilight,' you were introduced the vampire world, with 'New Moon' you are introduced to the werewolf world, and in 'Eclipse' you're torn between them both."

The "Twilight" saga has a huge fan base, mostly women. But the actors say that there will be plenty of action in "Eclipse" for the male audience to enjoy.

"It's definitely the book and the movie that I've been looking forward to shoot and see it for myself," said Lutz. "The action is there and it's a way darker movie. There is a lot of action which is right up my alley. That's the magic of this franchise. It's hitting everyone."

"Eclipse" makes its world premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 24. It hits theaters on June 30.
