"The reason may be to steal ratings from those way-too-exciting Oscar arrivals pre-shows. And to force viewers to actually watch the darn three-hour show to see their favorite stars, of course."
Read the entire article here.
I personally think of the red carpet as an Oscar tradition and a way in which celebrities can show appreciation to their fans who have supported them by going to see the nominated films. I really hope that they do walk. Do you have an opinion?
Could there be more to the New Moon movie logo than adding a couple words and changing the color from blue to orange? The Deadbolt News is featuring an article on the psychology behind the marketing of the second film in the series.
"Digging deeper into the color scheme of the new logo artwork, the psychology of the color orange has given us more insight into what fans may expect from the tone and the marketing of The Twilight Saga New Moon. Interestingly, from a quick search through the web, the color orange has many layers from a psychological standpoint."
Take a look at the entire article here. What do you think?
The How To Be soundtrack includes 4 exclusive tracks performed and sung by Art (Robert Pattinson); the much requested Hammond Song from the trailer (The Roches); tracks by the Roller Coaster Project (Ronnie, played by Johnny White); and, the beautiful original score, written by Joe Hastings and produced by Gary Moore.
Each CD soundtrack will include one of two posters with exclusive and unreleased images of Art (Robert Pattinson), and other members of the cast.

Larry Carroll shares his thoughts & perspective on the June 30th 2010 release date for Eclipse:
"Okay, Twilighters, here's the good news: You've made it to prime time. The release date is in late June, prime tentpole territory typically reserved for the likes of Will Smith, superheroes and hundred-million-dollar Michael Bay movies. No more of these November, let's-hope-we-catch-the-teens-while-they're-home-for-the-holidays release dates for you guys. In fact, a quick peek at the 2010 release schedule shows that "Eclipse" will be butting heads with such heavyweights as "Prince of Persia," "Toy Story 3" and Jackson Rathbone's "The Last Airbender."
Unfortunately, there's also some bad news: Eyebrows were raised among the fans when the "New Moon" release date was announced as being a year after "Twilight" arrived in theaters. Now, "Eclipse" will hit screens a mere seven months after "New Moon." Figuring in the roughly three months that Chris Weitz required to prepare the second film, that gives the director of the third movie barely four months to shoot it, edit it, get the special effects up to speed and put the film in theaters.Of course, if a director other than Weitz is chosen to film "Eclipse," he or she could have longer to prepare the movie. But any "Twilight" fan would be right to be a bit concerned about the new date - because, as Hollywood has shown us time and time again, hastily-made sequels like "Legally Blonde 2," "Conan the Destroyer" and the "Saw" films often, well, suck."

** Well now the showdown between Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart is over. Rob's movie Little Ashes & Kristen Stewart's movie Adventureland were both going to be released on March 27th.
Chris Weitz will not direct the third film in the Twilight series, Eclipse, a source close to the production tells EW.com exclusively. Because New Moon, which Weitz is helming, and Eclipse are due to be released so close together (on Nov. 20, 2009, and June 30, 2010, respectively), Weitz will be in post-production on New Moon at the same time that Eclipse will be shooting. That said, the source confirms a report that the movies will not be shot simultaneously or back-to-back; there will be a brief gap between the production of both films. (Reporting by Adam B. Vary)
From Nikki Finke at Deadline Hollywood:
EXCLUSIVE: I've confirmed there's no director hired yet. And the two productions won't be back-to-back. But that hasn't stopped Summit Entertainment from newly scheduling its Twilight threequel for release on June 30, 2010, not long after its Twilight sequel New Moon set for November 20th this year now being helmed by Chris Weitz. Summit also officially changed the name of its vampire movie franchise based on Stephenie Meyer's bestselling series of novels to The Twilight Saga. Here's how Summit descibes the plot of the threequel Eclipse:
"As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob - knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death."
Regarding The Twilight Saga, my sources tell me that director Catherine Hardwick's claim in her diary that she didn't want to helm New Moon isn't accurate because Summit decided not to hire her for New Moon. And I've also learned that Summit only had a deal with Stephenie Meyer for the first book, Twilight. So the start-up film studio had to make individual deals for the other books in Meyer's series -- and the author got top-dollar, trust me. To date, Summit's low-cost blockbuster Twilight has earned $363 million in worldwide grosses -- almost evenly divided between domestic and international -- since its release on November 21st, 2008.
Ashley, Kellan and Taylor hit up Las Vegas this month for some birthday celebrations! Celebuzz reports that:
Taylor Lautner showed to Criss Angel's Believe at The Luxor Hotel on February 12, where the increasingly beefy New Moon actor celebrated his sweet 16 with a group of four.
Just a few days following, his costars Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene hit a decidedly more adult show for Ashley's 22nd birthday.
Ashley and Kellan took in the Cirque De Soliel show Zumanity and Ashley is having a birthday bash at Prive tonight.

"The cute actor from Twilight was at the opening of Street Fighter and said that he has been very busy with all his new projects.
He told reporters that the new movie, New Moon will begin filming on the 24th of March in Vancouver and that he is getting ready for it. He will also be acting in a movie called Warrior, which is about sports.
Kellan is so busy, but more than anything he is happy to have so many opportunities."Check it out HERE. Thanks to Kellan Lutz Online for finding this.
Rob took a trip to the eye doctor yesterday. Two things about these pictures, one - the Edward hair is returning nicely & two - I love that tiny bit of nipple in pic #1. Do you think this was a visit for New Moon contacts or what?
View more pics at RobertPattinsonFan.com.
I just love this little mention of Rob in Dose.CA:
"Robert Pattinson is back in L.A., where he continues to leave grown women reduced to drooling puddles in his wake."
The drooling puddles link takes you to this Celebuzz article:
"Robert Pattinson threw some serious vampire magic late last night at Coach & Horses pub in Los Angeles.
When the Twilight star showed up with a group of friends at the British-themed bar after 10 p.m last night "the girl I was working with freaked out," bartender Peter Renaud tells Celebuzz.
"She went over to his table to serve him. He took it upon himself to introduce himself and shook her hand. And it happened. She turned into a five-year-old girl," Renaud says."

From Marc Malkin at E! Online:
"Robert Pattinson has landed!
Our favorite Brit boy is here in Hollywood. As you must know by now, the Twilight star is going to be presenting at the Academy Awards on Sunday. (Nope, his costar Kristen Stewart is not expected to join him.)
So what's he been up to since he got here?
Mr. Pattinson was spotted in Beverly Hills yesterday, followed by dinner at Grey Goose night at the new West Hollywood outpost of London's famed Italian brasserie Cecconi's.
He arrived by himself (how much do we love that he doesn't travel with an entourage?) at about 8:30 p.m. and enjoyed the cicchetti, the eatery's signature plate of Italian tapas. "He ate dinner with friends and hung out in the patio area," a fellow diner reports.
I hear he'll be rehearsing his Oscar gig on Saturday afternoon at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood."
Awww no Kristen.

Robert Pattinson attended a pre-academy awards party last night in West Hollywood. It feels just like old times having him out on the town in LA. It's been a while that's for sure. Rob the USA just isn't the same without you!
Picture thanks to our affiliate RobertPattinson.org.
"With casting almost complete and a new location already in play, New Moon is quickly getting production underway in Vancouver. What really matters is the continuation of the story. But can Edward and Bella do what we have envisioned from the book? The mystery lies in the creation and execution of Stephenie Meyer's world into two hours of visual complexity. Many fans of the series were left wanting with Twilight. Will New Moon become another blockbuster hit at the box-office? Unlike the unknown of Twilight on the big screen, we're expecting New Moon to be better in at least 5 different ways - new characters and conflict, Dakota Fanning and how she'll raise the game of the cast, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart digging deeper as actors, the new location, and further exploration of the legend."

Kellan comments to E! News on his and AnnaLynn's relationship:
"You know, we're really close and we're all for each other's careers. And we actually bounce a lot of career choices and the like off each other, so it's nice to have someone in the industry who you can really, you know, be honest with versus your agent, versus your manager, the lawyer, who really want to do stuff for the money and for the wrong reasons a lot of times. So it's nice to have friends who are smart and intelligent who know the business side of the business. That's what AnnaLynne is. Therefore we're friends."

Wow was that a long explanation or what? Is this the definition of friends with benefits? LOL!
Cinemaroll has an article on New Moon & the Twilight fans expectations for it.
As most of you Twilight fans know, New Moon is coming our way this November. Although New Moon will not be directed by Catherine Hardwicke, big things are expected out of director Chris Weitz. Hopefully he will bring some things to the big screen that Catherine wasn't able to do. Yes, her budget was a lot more limited then what the New Moon budget will be, but fans are expecting the new movie to be a million times better then Twilight was.

***This is our post on the Alice Cullen action figure from yesterday in case you missed it:
Look what is on display at the NECA’s Twilight booth at the International Toy Fair 2009 in New York. It's the "Alice" doll/action figure along with Bella, Edward & a whole bunch of other Twilight Merchandise. Comingsoon.net has more pics here.
It looks like Twilight has not only boosted sales at Hot Topic & Borders but NECA is getting a nice bump from it as well. From The Star Ledger:
Hillside-based NECA discovered licensing gold in its line of action figures based on Stephenie Meyer's best-seller "Twilight."
"We had a good year (in 2008), thanks in large part to 'Twilight,'" said Randy Falk, the company's director of product development. With both a "Twilight" movie and a Harry Potter movie scheduled for release this year, NECA is "positioned to have a good year," Falk added.Read more here.

While doing my weekly Wednesday Twilight shopping at the mall, I came across the Twilight Sweetheart Candies at F.Y.E. They go for: two boxes for $5.00 and there are three different boxes to choose from. These conversation hearts have sayings on them like "Dazzle" and my personal favorite "Bite Me". Enjoy them while they last. I suggest calling your local F.Y.E. store to see if they carry them.
Access Hollywood also interviews Peter. He dishes on New Moon, rehearsals start in 3 weeks, shooting starts in April, & the latest on Carlisle's hair.
These little nuggets are from the 11th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards held at the Four Seasons Beverly Wilshire Hotel on Februray 17, 2009 in Beverly Hills, California.
Peter was making the point of the importance of costume designers. Did he steal the the show or what?!
Lion & Lamb Love has tons of pictures. View them here.
