Despite exciting rumors that Adam Lambert would be featured on the New Moon soundtrack, we can now confirm that this won't be the case.

But dry those tears, fans: the film has found a suitable replace for the movie's first single.

The Death Cab for Cutie song “Meet Me On the Equinox” will debut on September 13 at the MTV Music Awards. It was written specifically for New Moon and chosen as the featured tune over recordings by Thom Yorke, Bon Iver and Muse, all of whom will appear on the album.

Said Death Cab for Cutie bassist Nick Harmer:

"We didn't expect it would be chosen for the first single — we were thinking it would be a part of the soundtrack, maybe... It's been an exciting process, because we've been so removed from it. We were in L.A. for a week and we went into the studio and wrote and recorded the song and submitted it. We didn't know where anything stood, and then we just got a call last week."

The New Moon soundtrack is now available for pre-order for at Amazon.com for $9.99. It will be released on October 20.

Forget Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson. It's time to focus on the unheralded stars of New Moon for a few moments.

(Just briefly, don't get too worried, fans.)

Tattooed and Cute

The second installment of the Twilight Saga will focus heavily on the Volturi, the largest, most powerful coven of vampires on the planet, those that enforce the laws of their world.

Of all the actors and actresses that comprise this group, Dakota Fanning has received the most attention. After all, portraying the evil, red-eyed vampire Jane is certainly a change of pace for the young, sweet-looking star.

Here's the first official promotional shot of her in the role:

Other members of the Vulturi include:

  • Michael Sheen as Aro;
  • Jamie Campbell-Bower as Caius;
  • Christopher Heyerdahl as Marcus;
  • Cameron Bright as Alec.

They're all featured below. Click on each of the following photos and let us know your favorite member of the Volturi:

How can a day on set with Robert Pattinson be anything but pleasant? When one is shooting such emotionally draining material that it tears one up inside.

Indeed, in an interview with MTV this week, Kristen Stewart opens up about the difficulty of filming New Moon, referring to it was "the one book in the series that I was intimidated by — in a good way."

"That's the best feeling to start a movie with," she said. "But probably, my favorite line in the book is when I have to say to [Jacob], "It's him; it's always been him!" Like, I have to say that. Yeah, it killed me, it killed me."

Stewart continued, trying to explain her feelings:

"Just like everything in our movie, it's such a heightened version of reality. It's like, people don't just break up [in the "Twilight" films] — they break up and it literally kills you."

Taylor Lautner also chimed in, dubbing New Moon as "very complicated."

"There's a lot of heartbreak, there's a lot of things going on. Edward leaves at the beginning, she goes into this depression, I come to try and bring her out of it. Then, I go through my own issues, and then she leaves me. It's all over the place."

Fans will gain a greater understanding when the film opens on November 20. For now, click on the following images from it:

Simply put, if you like Taylor Lautner shirtless, you'll love New Moon!

Our dedicated staff has done more than simply uncover a high-resolution trailer for the movie, we've taken the time to create a few (gorgeous!) screen captures from it.

Below, Lautner shows off the 30 pounds of muscle he packed on for the role of Jacob in the Twilight sequel, while Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson embrace like there's no tomorrow.

For anyone familiar with the plot in New Moon, this seems to be the case at one point, as Edward bids his love farewell.

Click on the photos below for a closer look at various scenes from the film, but be warned: they may be too hot to handle.

Strike another blow for Team Jacob!

While Robert Pattinson is spending these days in bed with Kristen Stewart, Summit Entertainment is using Taylor Lautner to heavily promote New Moon.

He's featured in a sexy photo shoot with Stewart this week, and he's also the host of the latest trailer for the wildly-anticipated Twilight sequel.

"New Moon is a lot more complicated than Twilight was," Taylor says in the video below. "Bella is in such a deep depression when Edward leaves, and Jacob is the friend that will always be there for her... New Moon is going to be stepped up a whole other notch."

He also teases that the "heat starts building" between Jacob and Bella. Can you feel it, fans?!?

This week may have started with confirmation that Robert Pattinson is back together with Kristen Stewart (go Team Edward!).

But it's ending on an encouraging note for all Team Jacob supporters.

Stewart and Taylor Lautner, whose characters grow very close during New Moon, are featured in the latest edition of Entertainment Weekly. Below, they pose for a series of sexy photos together, followed by an interview in which they open up about their roles and each other...

  • Comfy Friends
  • Friendly Fighting

Click on each photo above to get up close and personal with both these stars.

Here are more revealing excerpts from Kristen and Taylor's interview with the magazine:

Stewart, on playing other roles: "If it was Twilight all the time, I would go mad. To just play one character for four years, it’s not what I do. I like to have variation. I like to change it up... I'm so not Bella. Thats just a different aspect of me."

Lautner, on playing Jacob: "It's challenging, because he's not human. I mean, what human walks around with a frown, looking like he wants to kill something?"

Lautner, on his friendship with Stewart: "[Jacob and Bella] are so open, and they can tell each other everything. So it was very important for me and Kristen to grow very close before doing this."

Stewart, on Lautner: "I love that kid. I would do anything for him. I would kill for him, literally."

Don't worry, Robert Pattinson fans. She'd serial murder for him.

Eclipse casting headlines have been dominating the news so much over the last week (with John Huston and Catalina Sandino Moreno as the latest to join the film) that it's easy to forget:

New Moon is actually the next movie in the Twilight Saga to hit theaters. It will be released on November 20.

Fans will be reminded of that when they see the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly: Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner grace the cover.

The pair's characters grow quite close in the Twilight sequel, of course, which Robert Pattinson told the magazine was fine with him: “It was a stress-free job for three months. All the pressure was on Taylor."

Inside the issue, Kristen and Taylor dish on a number of New Moon secrets. For example:

Stewart, on Lautner almost being replaced as Jacob: "I knew he had [to do] it. Just because of how I felt around him... We have that [BFF] relationship. It’s lamely cute.”

Lautner, on bulking up for his increased role: “My body fat got so low that we actually needed to increase it a little bit. My trainer would be like, ‘Go have a huge milk shake just so I can get a thousand calories into your body.’”

Meanwhile, the magazine also gives fans a glimpse of Kristen and Taylor on set, cracking jokes (and flirting?) and comparing Lautner to Jacob. Follow this article's jump to watch it.
