twilight new moon picture New Moon Official Final Trailer Is Here!

The final trailer for The Twilight Saga: New Moon debuted last night during the MTV Video Music Awards and managed to accomplish two things:

  1. Demonstrate that director Chris Weitz has achieved something much more visually sophisticated than Catherine Hardwicke’s Twilight adaptation.
  2. Finally show us something other than schmaltzy, awkward, shirtless, teen romance.

So, without further ado, I’d like to present you Twilight Saga fans with the best trailer that I’VE seen so far for New Moon.

[UPDATE: Youtube version below so our international readers can now see the trailer as well.]

Up until now I haven’t had any reason to be enthused about the cast of these films. I’m still not convinced that the central trifecta of Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner exude what I would call “star power,” however, New Moon‘s supporting players look to be a much more interesting bunch.

I’ve been digging the fact that they cast all Native American actors to play Jacob’s (Lautner) Wolf Pack brethren, and the scenes of The Volturi in the trailer – featuring actors like Dakota Fanning and Michael Sheen – set in the Gothic European backdrop, add an element of intrigue to this story that (for me at least) was just TOTALLY missing from Twilight‘s stripped-down-home love story.

The “werewolf” f/x, however, still look like they could use some polishing (thought it’s still pretty cool to see the wolves taking on that vamp with the dreadlocks, Laurent).

What did you think of the final New Moon trailer? How about Kristen Stewart’s Goth-chic haircut at the MTV VMAs? :-O

As if you didn’t know: New Moon hits theaters on November 20, 2009. Tickets are already on sale at select locations.

  1. @Marie- Well, I don’t know about the “TwilightSaga”, but I am basis my opinion solely on the movie and it was just plain horrible! Bad acting, poor character development and ridiculous story-line pretty much sums it up for me. Maybe the book is better, but the movie is so bad that I have no desire to read the book.

    If you can so offended by a contrary opinion, maybe you might want to stay off forums, esp. if you want to group everyone together. I love a good debate but, dang, don’t take it so personal.

  2. @ Gary- your right. I should have said SOME of you guys can be so acerbic.

    Contrary opinion isn’t what is offensive.

  3. The book was intended for teenagers and became so much more then I think anyone expected. The acting abilities of the characters that everyone keeps gripping about i think forget that its out of the eyes of a teenager. I think that they play the age of the characters pretty much on. Kristen plays a teenage girl pretty much how a teenage girl would. I think all the adults complaining are comparing them to adult characters which are the roles they are not playing. Think back to your teenage days. (I know you werent like that.)
    Just a food for thought.

  4. The books are amazing and the movies can hold their own as well. I have always found it better to read the book before watching the movies, however the twilight movies keep to the book’s storyline. Edward Rules!!!!!!

  5. as someone who’s 35 and has read the books 4 times and saw the Twilight movie I can’t really recall the # by now, I found this particular trailer that combines all that has been seen by now the best teaser for the movie. I’ve read all of the comments posted and find some of them quite humorous.
    As stated before, movies based on a written book/saga, are adaptations of what was read. For example, if the movie Twilight was “the movie version” of the book, you would know that there was a lot that had been taken out or added to the movie to stretch out a scene or combine the essential parts of the book caught in a short period of time based on cost/budget.

    In all, I think every individual from the writer to the actual director and screenplay writter have different points of view of the story. Keep in mind, though, Stephenie Meyer has been present in the production of these movies. So if the movie itself gets way off base with her book, then of course as an artist protecting her “baby”, she would say something about it.

    My only beef, if any, is that the eye contact color change for a “starving Cullen vampire” got missed in this take of the Saga. I would think if Katherine got that right as the movie to start out all 4 movies, that they would have stuck with it for consistancy.

    yeah 35 might be a bit much for getting this caught up, but I like vampire movies. In general the Vampire stories are always about a forbidden romance with the dark side tied in deep into what may or may not be in the end. I think both the movie and the books play that role well. Especially from a teenage life/first true love point of view. Just keepin it real.

  6. I have read all 4 book and the trailers are excellent!!! If give you a strange axiety to was the move NOW and not wait for another 2 days!!!!!!

  7. the cast were ok but i think the movie had many cut scenes again. like what they did in twilight. and isn’t jane from the volturi had a black hair? Why didn’t dakota fanning dye her hair?
