Exclusive: On-Set Twilight Image

Surprise: Edward's looking broody

A treat for Team Edward this morning: here's an exclusive pic of Robert Pattinson on set of *Twilight, the adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's bestselling vampire series.

The story follows 17 year-old Bella (Kirsten Stewart) as she moves to a new town and falls for a dark, mysterious type at her new school. Edward (Robert Pattinson), for it is he, turns out to be - wouldn't you know it - not an emo but a vampire. Like, bummer.

The books may not be high art, but they're terribly more-ish, with three sequels already published and a sidequel (Midnight Sun, which is Twilight from Edward's point of view instead of Bella's) planned. And frankly, we can totally see further sequels down the line, but that remains to be seen.

Film-wise, Twilight comes out here on January 9, which gives the hype lots of time to keep building.

Pick up the October issue of Empire for our feature on Twilight.

*Given what happens in Breaking Dawn, do Team Edward and Team Jacob still exist? Or have we all learned to get along?
