The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is now out in U.S. theaters! Reviews have been piling in, and overall Eclipse has been said to be the best of the three films so far. Anna’s performance as chatterbox Jessica Stanley has once again been highlighted as one of the best actors in the film :D. Here are some reviews that mention our girl:

When her classmate Jessica (the clever Anna Kendrick) gives a graduation speech proclaiming that this is the time to make mistakes, figure out who they want to be, to live, we all want that message to get through to stubborn Bella. {TIME}

The early reviews are positive. The first review from Variety’s Peter Debruge says all the right things. According to him, the movie’s more dynamic, edgier, better-looking, amping up both the action and melodrama. And there’s apparently more Anna Kendrick, which can only ever be a good thing. The Hollywood Reporter liked it too. {Cinematical}

As for the supporting characters, sadly Anna Kendrick’s presence is reduced to a minimal yet memorable moment in which she delivers a commencement speech and Dakota Fanning’s Jane and the Volturi are practically nonexistent, but we do get a closer look at two of the Cullens, Jasper and Rosalie (Jackson Rathbone and Nikki Reed). {Shockya}

Have you seen Eclipse? What are your thoughts?

On a side note, Anna also was apparently at the The Thirst Project Gala Honoring Drake Bell on June 29, but we are yet to find any photos or media of her from the event. The Thirst Project is an organization that helps third-world countries have clean drinking water. You can find out more about it at
