New Moon Mall Tour
Last year, when the first Twilight had yet to hit the big screen, already ravenous fans of the books were treated to a mall tour to promote the film. Apparently it caused pandemonium in every mall the tour came to, and fans will get the chance to cause the same this year for the The Twilight Saga: New Moon. During the tour – which will hit 15 cities – fans will get the chance to meet select cast members, amongst other things. Here’s the press release thanks to Collider.com, which includes the dates/locations for the tour:

Will you be attending the New Moon tour next month? And what do you think of the new TV spots and clip from the movie? Are you in the “for” or “against” camp when it comes to the Twilight movie franchise in general? Count me in the “for” camp (but please don’t hold it against me :P ).
