Twilight fans grab your life-size Robert Pattinson stuffed doll, call all of your friends, gather around your computer monitors and giggle together in anticipation because Screen Rant has got some skin-tingling news for you. Last week MTV showed its first ever Halloween special, Ulalume: Howling at the New Moon. During the show, MTV showed an exclusive clip from the upcoming Twilight sequel New Moon and in case you missed it (if you are a Twilight fan, then I seriously doubt you missed it) you can watch the clip over at MTV or just check it out after the jump.
All the popular kids were on hand to debut the new clip, including every girl’s (and a few oddball boy’s) favorite brooding teenage vampire hunk, Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen). Oh yeah, in case you care, Kristen Stewart (Bella Swan) and Taylor Lautner (Jacob Black) were there too. But seriously, did you see the dreamy, pale-skinned, red-eyed Edward? That man just exudes sexy, in an “I want to drink your blood” type of way.
But before we get to the video, there is another piece of information that dropped that is sure to make you sparkle. Coming Soon is reporting that due to the huge success of the first installment of Stephenie Meyer’s young love vampire angst series of novels , Summit Entertainment has to decided to re-release Twilight in select theaters nationwide on November 19th.
This is a rare event; the studio decided to offer this re-release because of the number of requests to see Twilight in theaters again, despite the fact that it is already available on DVD. The movie will be shown right before New Moon hits theaters (most likely a double feature) and the tickets will be available at a discounted price. Bottom line, don’t go anywhere near the mall on November 19th or 20th.
OK, enough yammering, time for the video clip:
MTV also released 3 new stills from New Moon (the first of which you saw above) and you can see the other two below. New Moon is direct by Chris Weitz (The Golden Compass), and stars Robert Pattinson (Twilight), Kristen Stewart (Adventureland), and Taylor Lautner (Twilight) in a story about a supernatural love triangle between Bella (Stewart), Edward(Pattinson) and Jacob (Lautner). Who will Bella ultimately fall in love with? Can she ever get over the hunky dreaminess of Edward to love the every-so-often super-hairy Jacob? You’ll just have to read the books or wait a couple of weeks to find out for sure. I know I’m biting my fingernails in anticipation.
Here are the other two stills as promised.
Admittedly, I’m not a fan of the films and neither the clips nor the pictures have me giddy with excitement to watch New Moon or the third Twilight installment, Eclipse. I even tried to read the books but never made it past the first couple of chapters. The whole thing reads like a morbid twist on Romeo and Juliet, with a dash of 90210 drama and just a hint of Sweet Valley High. Good thing I’m not the target audience, I guess. New moon will do very well in theaters because it managed to pick up a huge fan base. It’s just not my cup of tea but if it is yours, then I’m sure the film will not disappoint.
I would ask if you are planning to watch New Moon when it comes out in theaters but if you are reading this post, then chances are you already bought your advance tickets at Fandango.
New Moon fangs its way into theaters and makes you gush with excitement November 20th, 2009.
