Director Vows: New Moon Will Make You Cry!

by at . Comments

When fans start streaming into movie theaters for the opening of New Moon later this month, they'll undoubtedly bring high expectations with them.

Director Chris Weitz says audiences may also want to carry a box of tissues.

As Edward

"We've tried our best to deliver on the romantic scenes in the film, and I would like to be able to produce more tears than any movie before, if possible," Weitz told People this week.

Good luck topping Titantic, New Moon! We're still drying our eyes from Jack's heroic sinking into the ice cold ocean at the conclusion of that epic. Fortunately, his heart will go on... and on...

Weitz also said he admires how well the young cast is handling the constant media attention on their personal and professional lives. (For example, did you hear that Robsten broke up?!?)

"What I've realized is that they have a very tough job – not just playing the characters that they play, but living lives that are now very much under scrutiny all the time," he said. "They're smart kids... they've got good heads on their shoulders. They'll be all right."

Over the last few weeks, as we inch closer to November 20, more and more pictures from the movie have been released. View them all now in our New Moon photo gallery!

New Moon didn't make me cry. It made me laugh, at times, when it is was supposed to be romantic! He did a great job with Antz and About a Boy, but this film was more like the "average" The Golden Compass. The romance and intensity of this film was sadly lacking. Enjoyable but nothing special.
