The Trailer Some Have Been Waiting On

THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON trailer in HD

Interesting that 2/3 of the trailer features the character who leaves for what is, according to the book, most of the film…

    I’d rather see the video of Bruno falling ass and balls in Eminem’s face…

    That morph into a wolf looks like CG technology from 13 years ago.

  3. Geoff says:

    Wow, this looks god-awful – one of the most poorly conceived trailers I have ever seen.
    But as for good trailers, have you seen the teaser for Toy Story 3? Wonderfully put together – I love how they incorporated all of the previous characters into it. I am very much there and will plan on bringing my four year old daughter (she’ll be five by then) as well.

  4. matro says:

    According to whatshisname, the script was rewritten from the book to incorporate his character more than the book did. Which is probably wise.
    I actually found the Toy Story teaser a bit cloying. But then I’m sure the movie will be fantastic, so it’s all good.

    I’m not sure where to post this link. But a thread about vampires seems appropriate. http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2009/06/01/world/AP-ML-Egypt-Mutilation.html

  6. I liked the FX in the final shot of the trailer. Not photo real, but a fun bit of cheesy movie magic.

  7. LexG says:

    LOOK… AT… HER!!!!!
    FIVE MILLION STARS for this trailer. K-STEW is PURE MOVIE MAGIC and thus begins another YEAR OF HYPE. 125 MIL OPENING WEEKEND. GUARANTEED.
    LOOK AT HER. ARE YOU LOOKING? Oh, my GOD.
    K-STEW 4 EVER.
    Robert Pattinson = Luckiest Bastard on Planet Earth.
    CATCH THAT KID!

  8. LexG says:

    K-STEW. WONDER WOMAN.
    MAKE. IT. HAPPEN.

  9. Not this again?
    This is by far the most interesting thing that happened during the MTV Awards.

    like hudson says: fuckin A!

  11. IHeartThatCurtis! says:

    Lexy… damn right. She rules. The many problem I have with this trailer is the LOOK OF THE FUCKING FILM. We go from a very atmospheric looking movie in Twilight, with all of it’s greys and blues, and now it’s gone away? I understand Mr. Golden Compass did not come up with that sort of production design or whatever, but it just seems odd to rip what consisted for atmosphere in that first film. RIGHT OUT OF THE FUCKING SECOND FILM! Good lord. Good fucking lord.

  12. leahnz says:

    (my ‘fuckin A’ was for the clip of bruno going bassackwards into marshall mathers’ face)

  13. IHeartThatCurtis! says:

    Well here’s a big FUCK YOU AHOLE to the awesomeness of the New Moon trailer. Outside of the Mr. Golden Compass eliminating the great atmosphere created with all of those blues and greys in Twilight.
    Oh yeah… FUCK YOU AHOLE… the new insult for those who name themselves after a part of the body, and wants everyone else to act like this never happened.

  14. LexG says:

    I AM GETTING “K-STEW” TATTOOED across my stomach tomorrow like TOMMY LEE (aka GOD) had MAYHEM tatted on his when he was in METHODS OF MAYHEM.
    GET NAKED = GOOD SONG YEP YEP.
    McDOUCHE and LOU FROM CADDYSHACK, let’s go get K-STEW tattooed on us tomorrow. It’ll be a fun gay date.

  15. leahnz says:

    i’d pay money to see that

  16. IHeartThatCurtis! says:

    LEXY: YOU HAVE THAT GAY DATE MAN! YOU HAVE IT! YOU GET THAT TATTOO! YOU GET IT TODAY!
    MAKE SURE YOU KNOCK OUT TY COBB LONG ENOUGH TO TATTOO “I’D SUCK YOUR COCK FOR TEN DOLLARS” ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD! SURE! HE WILL NEVER EVER GET THE REFERENCE ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD, BUT IT WILL BE THERE FOR LIFE! HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!

  17. LexG says:

    TY COBB = AWESOME running gag, best since Smoke Monster.

  18. LYT says:

    Lex…no.

  19. Kim Voynar says:

    I actually agree with IHeart, for once — the blue/grey palette of Twilight was one of the things that actually worked well about it, and now it’s gone and Forks looks all golden and sunny like LA? WTF? Even Seattle doesn’t look golden like that except for a few weeks of summer. The special effect looks fine, and Taylor Lautner has realy buffed himself up, as promised, to play the older Jacob, which will make Team Jacob happy.
    Weitz and Summit know they need to knock it out of the park with New Moon; smart of them to rework the storyline a bit to have Edward in there more, since he’s gone for most of the book. I hope they significantly tightened it as well … Bella spends much of New Moon moping about after Edward leaves her, which is kinda boring.

  20. LexG says:

    Zahn: Holy shit, that was disturbing. I made it through five minutes and it was just uncomfortable. Though now I can put a face to EVERY. SINGLE. WOMAN. who posts on Television Without Pity.
    Somebody get that chick a ShamWow.

  21. jeffmcm says:

    Lex, surely on your..five? Ten? viewings of Twilight you were sitting next to a couple of dozen people like this.
    Ironically, you are soulmates.

  22. bmcintire says:

    Wow. Having really hated the first one, I am not expecting to like the second, but just – wow. That is a terrible, terrible trailer. K-Stew is very cute – props to Lex – but she seems nearly comatose through most of this (“Paper cut”) and the pace of it just drags and drags along. This, of course, is probably built-in for the screeching and squealing of teenage girls, much like a pause for laughs in a comedy.
    Funniest bits:
    1. The need to go out into the woods for all of their intimate conversations gets skewered by the Rasta Vampire as if this were a parody of the franchise.
    2. The cartoon werewolf looks about as convincing as the hyenas in EXORCIST: DOMINION. What is it about dogs/wolves/werewolves that CGI just cannot get right? The technology seems perpetually stuck in the Uncanny Valley.
    3. Gratuitous beefcake shots! I know that I shouldn’t expect continuity in a trailer, but the magically appearing shirt on the Wolf Boy is hilarious.
    And Captain Zahn – thank you so much for that. It’s refreshing to know that mouth-breathing flubbery fangirls are not an exclusive to the Uniuted States.

  23. Hallick says:

    “According to whatshisname, the script was rewritten from the book to incorporate his character more than the book did. Which is probably wise.”
    Unless it backfires, like the shoehorning of more John Connor into “Terminator: Salvation”, which didn’t have the pre-set structure of a popular book to contend with.

  24. I am so glad my caps lock never gets stuck.

  25. yancyskancy says:

    The gratuitous beefcake was to show skeptic fans that the kid playing Jacob had pulled off the necessary bulking up, per the second book (I live with a fangirl).
    The trailer looked okay to me. And the reaction video is kind of charming, in a way. While I personally never react that way to anything, I hate to begrudge people their enthusiasms. As someone in the comments pointed out, plenty of sports freaks geek out like this all the time when they’re watching a game. It all looks ridiculous to someone who doesn’t share the feeling.

“The thought is interrupted by an odd interlude. We are speaking in the side room of Casita, a swish and fairly busy Italian bistro in Aoyama – a district of Tokyo usually so replete with celebrities that they spark minimal fuss. Kojima’s fame, however, exceeds normal limits and adoring staff have worked out who their guest is. He stops mid-sentence and points up towards the speakers, delighted. The soft jazz that had been playing discreetly across the restaurant’s dark, hardwood interior has suddenly been replaced with the theme music from some of Kojima’s hit games. Harry Gregson-Williams’ music is sublime in its context but ‘Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots’ is not, Kojima acknowledges, terribly restauranty. He pauses, adjusting a pair of large, blue-framed glasses of his own design, and returns to the way in which games have not only influenced films, but have also changed the way in which people watch them. “There are stories being told [in cinema] that my generation may find surprising but which the gamer generation doesn’t find weird at all,” he says.

“They’re still talking about the ‘cathedral of cinema,’ the ‘communal experience,’ blah blah. The experiences I’ve had recently in the theatre have not been good. There’s commercials, noise, cellphones. I was watching Colette at the Varsity, and halfway through red flashes came up at the bottom of the frame. A woman came out and said, ‘We’re going to have to reboot, so take fifteen minutes and come back.’ Then they rebooted it from the beginning, and she had to ask the audience to tell her how far to go. You tell me, is that a great experience? I generally don’t watch movies in a cinema at all. Netflix is the future. It’s the present. But the whole paradigm of a series, binge-watching, it’s quite different. My first reaction is that it’s more novelistic, because if you have an eight-hour season, you can get into complex, intricate things. You can let it breathe and the audience expectations are such that they will let you, where before they wouldn’t have the patience. I think only the surface has been touched with experimenting with that.”
