New Moon Anticipation

Halloween is just around the corner and one costume sure to be a popular choice this season is of course, the vampire.  Although “New Moon” (the second movie in the Twilight saga) doesn’t open until mid November, many teenagers and adults alike are anticipating its release.

“Twilight” opened in theatres November of last year and quickly became a huge phenomenon, bringing in $75 million its opening weekend.  Twilight and New Moon are based off of the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyers, which includes four books so far.  Eclipse, the third book in the series has already been made into a movie and its expected release is June 30th of 2010.

New Moon is a continuation of the dramatic love story between mortal Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson).  When the Cullen family leaves the town of Forks in Washington, Bella finds herself seeing Edward’s image every time she puts herself in jeopardy.  Through her desire to be with Edward she continues to take greater and greater risks.  More of Bella’s childhood friend Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner), will be seen in the second movie as a relationship grows between them.  Many new characters will also be introduced in New Moon, including the Quileute tribe who has a mystic secret of their own.

“I’m looking forward to seeing when Edward leaves the town and how Bella reacts,” said Junior and Twilight saga fan Maria Sanchez, “I hope they make it accurate to the book.”

The anticipation of New Moon is everywhere, on the cover of magazines and even in the stores.  Kristen Stewart was featured as the cover girl for the November issue of Seventeen Magazine, which included an interview with her as well as her costars Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.

In many stores like Hot Topic and Nordstrom, Twilight saga clothing lines have recently come out.  In October, Nordstrom introduced a whole line of New Moon inspired clothing, including Edward and Jacob graphic tees.  The “team Jacob” and “team Edward” tees represent the emerging competition for Bella’s love in the new movie.

New Moon opens in theatres worldwide November 20th, 2010.
