Yup, it is time to talk about the second Twilight flick, New Moon. But why are we talking about this series, with its glittery vampires, on here? Because this second movie is when we meet the La Push werewolf pack, this is the movie where (the now sexy) Jacob Black gets more than a small handful of lines like in Twilight. He is the star of the movie and he is a werewolf, so here we are. This time the wolves outshine the vampires… well, not literally since, well, the werewolves in Twilight don’t sparkle like their rivals but you know what I mean.
So in New Moon vegetarian vampire Edward and the rest of his undead family leave town and Bella for “her safety” after a minor altercation at her birthday party (she looked tastier than the cake). Cue Jacob Black of the Quilite tribe. Jacob, now with an additional 30 pounds of muscle, manages to cheer Bella up after Edwards’s departure nearly destroys her. Bella then discovers that vamp Edward isn’t the only one with a supernatural secret; she learns that Jacob is a werewolf. With new dangers, new friends and new enemies, Bella finds herself choosing between holding on to the past or accepting a new future. But what and more importantly who will she choose? The wolf or the corpse?
I know a lot of you are rolling your eyes, thinking to yourselves “but the first Twilight movie sucked!” True, but this time around we got director Chris Weitz, who directed the beautiful ‘The Golden Compass.’ And not only do actors Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner return but we have the new additions of Dakota Fanning and Michael Sheen.
Love it or hate it Twilight will be around for a while (well, at least until they make all 4 books into movies). If you love it or are mildly interested you can check out the trailer for New Moon…
New Moon, the upcoming Twilight film based on Stephenie Meyer’s novels will be in theaters November 20, 2009.
