This weekend we have three movies going wide: The Blind Side, Planet 51, and you guessed it, The Twilight Saga: New Moon. Based on the coverage I’ve seen on TV, though, it’s as if New Moon is the only movie out there, because that’s all that anyone is talking about.
Director Chris Weitz has made it as far as he can go. After lackluster showings with his first two films, Antz and The Golden Compass, Weitz is hanging up the headphones soon after the release of his next movie, The Twilight Saga: New Moon.
Online ticket seller Fandango is reporting that The Twilight Saga: New Moon has sold more pre-release tickets online than any other film in the provider’s ten-year history. This of course, has nothing to do with the predictions of the Myans and the upcoming apocalypse, despite popular opinion.
The trailer for Twilight: New Moon drops in theaters along with the Summit Entertainment release Bandslam on Friday. But before we can even get to that, we have to sit through a 14-second “trailer preview.”
It’s been a while since Twilight stories have been flying thick and fast, so we thought we’d celebrate here on Film School Rejects by doing the obvious and lumping whatever news we do have on the scarily popular saga into a single post.
I’m back today to try and make it up to you with a buffet of news to get your movie loving motors running. Of course, my hope is that your motors are hyrbid engines, as today is Earth Day and we should be doing what we can for the old gal.
Just the other day our good friends over at Spoiler TV sent us a link to a massive gallery of spy photos from the set of the upcoming Summit Entertainment film Twilight: New Moon. And upon careful inspection, we have made several shocking discoveries about the upcoming film.
Some movie websites serve the consumer. Some serve the industry. At Film School Rejects, we serve at the pleasure of the connoisseur. We provide the best reviews, interviews and features to millions of dedicated movie fans who know what they love and love what they know. Because we, like you, simply love the art of the moving picture.
