Fans are over the ‘NEW MOON’ about Twilight


By Peter Lang

Well the first official screenings of the Twilight sequel New Moon in both the US and Australia are only a few days away. Cinema houses in both countries are reporting sold-out midnight preview sessions with many theatres showing the movie at exactly one minute past midnight.
Some theatres are also holding a double movie feature with the original Twilight film being played first. These theatres are also sold-out.
Box office predictions for the movie in the US are flying as high as $100 million for the three-day official opening beginning on November 19, while other experts are predicting a more modest, yet still impressive $75 million take. The movie is also expected to break all box office records in Australia as well.
The film’s stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are two of the most ‘Google-d’ names on the search engine and fans just can’t get enough pictures of the duo on Google images, especially together (see picture on your left).
Yes, New Moon mania is about to strike the world once more. Even on our humble little Extra Source website, our Twilight tab is proving the most popular amongst readers. (It’s to the left in case you want to see what other Twilight stories we’ve done).
A few interesting basic facts about the Twilight phenomena for the uneducated. The original Twilight was directed by Catherine Hardwicke, while New Moon's director is Chris Weitz (The Golden Compass).
The New Moon soundtrack album - with artists including Death Cab For Cutie and the Killers - was also released in October as was a recent trailer of the film which is now well over the 25 million views mark..
Get ready folks because over the next few weeks, the Extra Source will keep you all up-to-date with box office figures of the New Moon movie plus critics and fans reactions to it as well.
