New trailer for the other 'Eclipse' movie

Sorry Twi-hards, but there are more things obscured by heaven and earth than just your Eclipse philosophies (apologies to Shakespeare). Instead, there's a different Eclipse flick out there.

While this Irish film does deal with issues of love, loss and romantic rivalry in a gloomy seaside town, it has nary a werewolf, vampire or mopey Forks, Wash., resident in sight.

Instead, The Eclipse is about a single father (CiarĂ¡n Hinds) who believes he's either being haunted by his dead wife or about to go stark raving. When he becomes close with a visiting female author (Iben Hjejle) who specializes in ghost stories, he shares his experiences and the two work together to understand the ghostly encounters. Unfortunately, the author is also caught up in her own difficult relationship with a living, and married, American writer (Aidan Quinn).

The film, which premieres March 26, looks like a compelling, adult entry of paranormal pop culture. It has also recently been nominated for eight categories, including best feature and director, for the Irish Film and Television Awards (IFTA).
