(That guy supports Team Jacob.  That’s Taylor Lautner’s father, right?  Please tell me it is.)

Videogum has a whole gallery of pictures from the Twilight: New Moon premiere, so you can just go there if you want to see them all. I’m only picking a few of my favorites, but clearly this represented a cross section of America’s finest. Like this guy. He likes America, sleeveless shirts, and vampires that sparkle. I think that was a Bob Seger song. Or this girl, the one behind the girl in the front. She wants to be “a stupid lamb.” Or possibly a stupid lamp, it isn’t entirely clear. Regardless, it’s good to have ambitions. Then there’s these girls, who support the Cullen diet, while standing behind a lady who doesn’t seem to support any diets. Diversity is beautiful. Meanwhile, the girl in the front right is enjoying her one day of the month outside. Anyway, I just thought you guys should enjoy some of these photos, because a lot of good cats went hungry for this.

Twilight sequel New Moon breaks record for advance box office sales

More film fans have pre-booked tickets to New Moon than ordered advance seats for Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince or The Dark Knight, according to Fandango, the cinema booking website.

With three days to go before the sequel goes on general release in the US on Nov 20, it has already sold more advance seats than the original Twilight film in 2008.

"For many fans, it's the year's most anticipated film event," a Fandango spokesman told the Deadline Hollywood website.

"Ever since tickets went on sale in September, it's been among our top five weekly ticket-sellers, as New Moon has a strong pull on audiences.

"We're seeing a higher-than-usual number of tickets per transaction for this film, suggesting that moviegoers will show up en masse at theaters this weekend with their friends and family."
Thousands of fans flocked to see New Moon stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart at the film's Los Angeles premiere on Monday.

Pattinson, 23, who plays vampire Edward Cullen in this latest adaptation of the popular series, said this year's crowd of thousands of screaming fans was larger than last year's turnout.

"And it seems different to me because we have done this world tour in the last week and it has just been unbelievable in every single city," he said. "It is about 10 times bigger than any other city in the world."

Twilight Saga: New Moon Fan Party in London

London was swamped with thousands of screaming fans in The Twilight Saga: New Moon Party Tour in UK. Walking the red carpet, New Moon stars Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart greeted England’s dedicated Twifans, signing autographs and stopping for the odd snapshot along the way.

Here's a video clip of  New Moon's  Fan Party in  London:

MySpace site to stream New Moon red carpet

Twilight fans can get a slice of the action on the New Moon premiere red carpet on Monday just by heading to their computer.

An official website has been set up where fans can watch the red carpet glamour unfold in LA.

New Moon is of course going to be the premiere of the year! All of the films stars - Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Kristen Stewart included - will be there, and no doubt plenty of other Hollywood hotties (will Lautner's girlfriend Taylor Swift be there with her beau?)

The MySpace page will be streaming live from 3pm New Zealand time on Monday November 16.

The big question will be if, after being snapped holding hands leaving Paris, will Kristen and RPatz walk the red carpet together? Tune in Monday to find out.

New Star Taylor Lautner Rises in "New Moon"

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Women swooned for Robert Pattinson as vampire Edward Cullen in last year's hit movie romance "Twilight," but in its upcoming sequel Taylor Lautner, who almost didn't make it into the film, is the newest hunk for fan's to feast on.

"The Twilight Saga: New Moon" rises in theaters on November 20 as one of the most-anticipated movies early in Hollywood's holiday season. Predecessor "Twilight" made $384 million at worldwide box offices in 2008, and its young principal actors, Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, shot to overnight stardom.

But in "New Moon," the second romance about the netherworld adventures of teenager Bella Swan (Stewart) and the love of her life Cullen, it is Lautner who grabs the spotlight.

He portrays American werewolf Jacob Black, Swan's protector when Cullen leaves her to go to Italy. Black's devotion to Swan has earned him -- and that means Lautner, too -- the devotion of millions of young girls obsessed with author Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" books on which the movies are based.

"We have fans all the time that will just burst into tears, it's just moving," he said. "It must mean so much for them to meet us, and it's an amazing feeling to know that you can touch someone in that way."

Prior to "Twilight," the 17-year-old Lautner was best known for his starring role in 2005 children's film "The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D." And in 2008's hit vampire film, the Jacob Black role was a small one as Swan's childhood friend. So, Lautner is relatively new to the stardom "New Moon" is bringing, and the teenager seems to be enjoying it.


But for a time it appeared the studio behind "Twilight," Summit Entertainment, might not hire him for the sequel.

When Summit left Lautner's name out of a statement announcing the other actors for "New Moon," including Pattinson and Stewart, "Twilight" fans protested stridently, and their Internet-based campaign brought Lautner back from the dead.

Exclusive: Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart caught kissing

Twilight co-stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart appeared to blow the lid on their secret romance after they were seen locking lips outside a screening of the film’s sequel. The pair previously denied the dating reports, insisting they were just “friends”.

But rumours reached a new high after the duo reportedly spent the night together at Hollywood''s Chateau Marmont hotel last week. The stars later attended the screening of The Twilight Saga: New Moon where they were spotted kissing.

"Rob wanted a cigarette so he went outside with Kristen for about 15 minutes,” Contactmusic quoted a source as telling the Us Magazine. “They were hugging, as Rob was smoking his cigarette
, and then he leaned down and kissed her on the lips. He had his arm around her almost the whole time," the source added.

Countdown begins for New Moon's World Premier

New Moon doesn't hit theaters until Nov. 20, but the red carpet will be rolled out four days prior for its star-studded world premiere.

Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and many others are expected at the invite-only event Nov. 16. Just as Summit did with Twilight’s premiere, there will be two screenings happening simultaneously at the Mann Village and Bruin Theatres in the Westwood neighborhood of L.A.

Ashley Greene's Favorite 'New Moon' Scene

The tabloid covers may be dominated by Rob and Kristen, but in the hearts and minds of "Twilight" fans, there is no cover girl as dazzling as so-sweet-she'll-give-you-a-cavity series star Ashley Greene.

With "New Moon" less than a month away (hooray!), and Alice Cullen's screen time substantially increased, we caught up with the actress and occasional MTV News correspondent to get her latest thoughts on stealing expensive cars, playing board games with Kellan Lutz, and the "New Moon" cast's shared love of ... kittens?

MTV: What was your favorite "New Moon" scene to shoot?

Ashley Greene: Of course, the Porsche was incredible, the whole experience of filming [that scene]. Working with Michael Sheen, it was just really funny how he created this whole atmosphere out of the scene and could switch it up. Everything that he did was a little bit inspired, and so the whole Volturi scene with him was really fun to do. [I also love] the whole Cullen scene, when Bella gets a paper cut and Jasper goes crazy — you haven't seen that side of him yet. The performances are great, and the whole dynamic is really great. That was one of my favorite scenes to watch.

MTV: You guys have become such good friends and have so much downtime between takes. What sort of things do you talk about when the cameras aren't rolling?

Greene: Between takes? Gosh, everything. YouTube was a big topic of conversation; we were sharing YouTube videos. Which was kinda funny, because [we'd be filming a] really intense situation, and then they would yell, "Cut!" and we would have 20 minutes and we'd break out "Kittens Inspired by Kittens." It's this little girl reading a kittens book. [Laughs.]

MTV: So Alice and Bella would be giggling between all that drama?

Greene: Yeah, there was a lot of that, just a lot of giggling and laughing. During "New Moon," especially in Italy, me and Kristen were, like, the only girls. So there was a lot of girly giggling going on.

MTV: Do you feel more like Alice now than when you did "Twilight"?

Greene: I feel like I was like the character a little bit anyways. I was really excited to play Alice in the beginning because she is a really positive, bright light — and a very moral vampire. I was saying in the beginning that I felt that I was [as well], and that was relatable. At least, I try to act [positively]; I don't know if we can all the time. [Also] she's really close with her family obviously, and that was there from the get-go, so I felt like the only other thing I could do to get closer would be to become a vampire or see the future. [Laughs.] [But] fashion-wise, yes. Fashion-wise, I have become a lot more like Alice Cullen, because she is probably the most fashionable out of the Cullen clan, and I've recently become obsessed with fashion.

MTV: There's so much "Twilight" merchandise out there. Do you own any?

Greene: I have a couple shirts. I have a couple things from "Twilight" that I want to keep as memorabilia, and so I have a couple shirts. I definitely have the necklace. While filming, Kellan bought the "Twilight" game, and we played. We made Xavier [Samuel] play it, the poor new kid. We were like, "The new kid will play!" and so we had Xavier come over and Peter Facinelli came over. Me and him and those two guys and Kellan played the "Twilight" game. And I won. I'm just saying. No big deal.

MTV: What is the secret to the success of the "Twilight" film franchise?

Greene: If I told you, I'd have to kill you. [Laughs.]

Pattinson says I have a "natural chemistry" with Stewart

He may not admit that he is dating Kristen Stewart, but Twilight star Robert Pattinson has said that he has a "natural chemistry" with his co-star. The 23-year-old actor, who is rumoured to be dating his co-star Stewart, says filming passionate scenes with her is easy, Ok! magazine reported online.

 "There's a natural chemistry going on with Kristen," said Pattinson. The British actor was worried that the chemistry would disappear in the film's sequel, New Moon, but things went smoothly.

"Even doing this sequel, it's so easy. I was really worried that I wouldn't know how to do it again, but it's so easy to play off her," he added.

Pattinson is planning to return to his home country once the shooting for the third sequel Eclipse is done.
Director David Slade is filming the final few scenes for the film, due out next year, and will be sending the actors home this weekend.

Kristen Stewart Says Playing Bella Swan Is 'Addictive'

'You're so in her shoes that it's a vicarious experience,' Kristen Stewart tells Allure of her 'Twilight' character.

These days, Kristen Stewart is very closely associated with her role of Bella Swan in the "Twilight" series. And at times she seems conflicted about the fame that comes with the role, but one thing she definitely doesn't seem conflicted about is her love for the character.

"You're so very much with Bella. You're so in her shoes that it's a vicarious experience. It's addictive," she said in an interview for the November issue of Allure magazine, on newsstands October 20.

In the issue, the 19-year-old actress also talks about how hard it is for her to open up in interviews. She thinks that people are constantly judging what she says and how she says it. "I spend so much of my time guarding against sounding insincere about something that I would die for," she said. "Maybe I'm overcompensating ... I care so much. And it gets reported as the opposite. And even seeing this [interview], they'll be like, 'Oh, she's trying to let us know ... ' "

Stewart, who is currently filming "Eclipse" in Canada, added that she refuses to bow down to Hollywood norms of what a starlet should look and act like. "I go outside and I'm wearing a funky T-shirt and my hair is dirty and people say, 'What's wrong with her? She needs to invest in a hairbrush,' " she said.

She added that she was never "that girl," so she's not sure why everyone wants her to be. "I'm like, 'Don't you get it? I'm not that girl!' Like, I never was that girl. It's not like I was really clean-cut last year," she said. "I don't exercise. I'm skinny fat. I worry about being too skinny."


World Premier of New Moon Announced

Summit Entertainment has announced that the World Premiere of New Moon will take place on Monday November 16 in Los Angeles.

As there will not be a UK premiere, E1 Entertainment is in the process of organising a New Moon fan event with the cast on November 11. We will update you on further details as soon as they are confirmed.

New Moon will be in cinemas across the country from November 20.

New Moon Soundtrack Announcement

Atlantic Records released this new announcement through website:
Due to overwhelming and unprecedented demand, Chop Shop/Atlantic Records have announced a new release date for THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK. By far the most anticipated soundtrack of the year, the compilation will now be released this Friday, October 16th, four days earlier than originally scheduled!

'New Moon' Movie Tickets on Sale Two Months in Advance

Fans anticipating the release of 'The Twilight Saga: New Moon' can reportedly purchase their tickets extra-early.

Movie tickets for the film, scheduled to hit theaters Nov. 19, are already on sale more than two months in advance, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Tickets to the midnight showing of 'New Moon' on opening night are available in select theaters across the country through the Web site Fandango.


'New Moon' Secrets Stolen

While these posters can join the Taylor Lautner shirtless promo in the fan made castoff bin, I have to say, these Twilighters certainly know their way around Photoshop. Must've come from all those hours superimposing their heads on Kristen Stewart's body.

But what isn't fake is the report that a totally legit "New Moon" script was recently discovered by a fan in the trash outside a Missouri set. Casey Ray was the lucky lady who got her hands on what could have been the most valuable item ever put up for auction on eBay!

Sadly, her moral compass eventually pointed her toward a righteous path and she returned the script! "We thank Ms. Ray for doing the right thing," Summit Entertainment said after the young lady disclosed her discovery.

Now, I like to view myself as an ethical dude -- who doesn't -- but I can't say with any sort of certainty that I'd have done the same thing if a script with the words "New Moon" scrawled across the front came into my possession.

Then again, I don't spend my afternoons dumpster diving, although now that it's become clear the cast is just chucking their scripts into any old trashcan, I definitely might start!

Full Official New Moon cast announced

Yes, Twilight fans (settle down, the rest of you), you can at last update your blogs and fan pages – the current full listing of the New Moon cast has been shoved online by Summit Entertainment.

The film is already running cameras, since it needs to be out by November, and most of these cast members are not exactly new or, like Dakota Fanning and, more recently, Michael Sheen, have already been announced.

But there are a couple of fresh names on the list – Birth’s Cameron Bright is on board to play Alec, Fanning’s vampire brother, while Grahame Greene is appearing as Harry Clearwater, a Native American mate o Bella’s dad.

Oh, and before fans panic because he’s not on the list, Billy Burke is indeed returning to play Charlie Swan.

Ready for the list? Here we go…

Italian vampire clan the Volturi include Charlie Bewley as Demetri, Jamie Campbell Bower as Caius, Daniel Cudmore as Felix, Christopher Heyerdahl as Marcus, all Volturi enforcers.

Dakota Fanning plays Jane, a high-ranking and powerful Volturi member, and Cameron Bright is Alec, her brother. Noot Seear plays Volturi member Heidi. Michael Sheen plays Aro, the Volturi leader.

Graham Greene appears as Harry Clearwater, Quileute tribal leader and old friend of Bella's father Charlie. Tinsel Korey is Emily, the fiancée of Sam Uley."

Plus, the old gang is back: rejoining the movie are Ashley Greene as Alice, Peter Facinelli as Carlisle, Elizabeth Reaser as Esme, Kellan Lutz as Emmett, Nikki Reed as Rosalie, Jackson Rathbone as Jasper, Edi Gathegi as Laurent and Rachelle Lafevre as Victoria.

Finally, we have the storyline… Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) is devastated by the abrupt departure of her vampire love Edward (Robert Pattinson). But her spirit is rekindled by her growing friendship with the irresistible Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner). Suddenly, she finds herself drawn into the world of the werewolves, ancestral enemies of the vampires, and she finds her loyalties tested.

Happy now? You may now return to your regular scheduled anticipation of the movie.

New Moon by Stephenie Meyer

New Moon is a fantasy-romance novel by author Stephenie Meyer, and is the second book in the Twilight series. According to Meyer, the book is about losing true love. The title refers to the darkest phase of the lunar cycle, indicating that New Moon is about the darkest time of the protagonist Bella's life. The book was originally released in hardcover in 2006, following the successful publishing of Meyer's debut novel Twilight. An upcoming film adaptation is tentatively set for release on November 20, 2009.

Upon its publication in the United States, New Moon moved quickly to the top of bestseller lists, becoming one of the most anticipated books of the year. It peaked at #1 on both the New York Times Best Seller list and USA Today's Top 150 Bestsellers, and was the biggest selling children's paperback of 2008 with over 5.3 million copies sold.

New Moon has been translated into many diverse languages, including Czech, Thai, Russian, and Arabic.
