The New Moon publicity machine is in overdrive.
With a little more than a month to go until the second Twilight Saga film is released on November 20, expect Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and company to pop up on magazine covers, TV shows and radio interviews galore.
You won’t mind, will you?
Tomorrow, for example, People releases a special issue dedicated to New Moon. It features a slew of new photos from the movie, as well as comments from various cast and crew members.
Let’s take a look at what those associated with the surefire blockbuster have to say about it…
Director Chris Weitz, on the tone of New Moon: “Twilight is about first love; New Moon is about heartbreak. That requires the actors to go to some very dark places. There is more Edward in the film. Viewers will see him more often than Bella sees him in the book.”
Taylor Lautner on Team Jacob: “I get nervous trying to represent Team Jacob in the right way. This guy [Robert] is some pretty good competition. The fans would love anybody who played Jacob. I’m just lucky to be the one who got the chance.”
Pattinson on Edward: “When I read Twilight, and there are these moony descriptions of Edward as a godlike figure, I thought there was no way I could play him. But when I got in the room with Kristen, there was a certain chemistry. She’s basically the reason I did the movie.”
Ashley Greene on the fans: “Kellan Lutz and I look at each other and go, ‘What is going on? This is so insane!’ It’s very different from anything that I’ve experienced. But the fans are so passionate. Seriously, this is the coolest job in the world with the best fans.”
