I'm beginning to wonder if the Twilight Saga is this generations Titanic. I remember my step daughter seeing that movie at least six times in the theater. When I finally saw the film on DVD, I wasn't impressed at all. In fact, I never had any desire to ever see it again. I'm still miffed at all the hype surrounding the movie too, including the numerous awards it won.
I would guess there are those who feel that way about Twilight and probably the highly anticipated November release of New Moon. This time, I'm not a member of that group though. I simply cannot wait for November and this movie!
Today, August 20, marks the three-month coundown until New Moon's November 20th release date. Like Twilight, I imagine I'll be seeing a late morning matinee on opening day because I simply cannot wait to see what Summit Entertainment has done with book two, even if it is my least favorite of the novels.
Of course the movie trailers that have been released are only fueling my desire to see this film. Have you seen both of them yet? I've embeded links to the official two New Moon trailers below incase for some reason you have not seen one or the other yet.
I've always considered myself to be on Team Edward, but I will say that the Meet Jacob Black trailer below does an impressive job of leaning even us die-hard Edward fans into the Jacob camp.
About the only thing I'm still luke warm on is the visual representation of the wolves. I still think they look too cartoonish and unreal. I can think of other films that heavily use CGI, take the Star Wars films for example, where the characters actually look more life like than these wolves in New Moon do. I really hope the final movie cut has them looking a bit more realistic than what is shown in the film trailer.
I've been eyeing up my bookshelf these last few weeks, knowing that I will re-read the Twilight books again. Afterall, unlike many of you, I've only read them all once.
So are you looking forward to the New Moon movie release?
How soon will you see New Moon once it comes into theaters?
Is there any particular scene from the book that you do or do not want to see? What is it?
