Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart Arrive at the Twilight Screening in NY Separately but End the Night Together


No one—not studio exces, talent, or agents—has witnessed the kind of hysteria that surrounds Twilight's Robert Pattinson, so it's unsurprising that other celebrities haven't really been able to give him advice on how to handle fame. "I mean, everyone knows it's so kind of seperate—everybody has such a different experience," Pattinson said yesterday evening at the Cinema Society and D&G screening of New Moon in New York City. "I guess pretty much everyone universally says try to remember who you were before."

Last night, Pattinson, a notoriously quiet 23-year-old from southwest London, also ignited a fit of feverishness rarely witnessed among Manhattan's upper crust. After all, New York City is a town where well-heeled party guests usually don't turn to see who is being photographed when flashbulbs illuminate a room. Such was not the case at the Sunshine theater on the Lower East Side, where the boldface names who had actually gotten past the F.B.I.-esque security operation on the upper level—Natalie Portman, Ivanka Trump, gal-about-town Fabiola Beracasa, MTV's Alexa Chung, the New York Giants's Justin Tuck, and shock jock Howard Stern among them—crowded into the downstairs lobby to get a glimpse of the super-celeb. There was plenty of Twilight eye-candy to tide people over while they were waiting for the main course.

Breaking News: 'New Moon' beats 'Dark Knight's' Midnight record


Ughh...duhh...like that wasn't obvious. Do not
underestimate the power of the Twi-hards...haha...HitFix runs down the numbers:


No one expected "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" to
disappoint at the box office, but even Summit Entertainment has to be surprised
by the massive opening the sequel garnered from midnight shows across the
country. Distributors are still submitting their grosses but sources tell HitFix
"New Moon" has set a new record and may have made as much as $25 million from
its midnight launch.

To compare, previous record holder "The Dark Knight"
made $18.4 million in over 3,000 theaters, but some of those screens were of the
IMAX variety which charge higher ticket prices thereby inflating the overall
gross. Not jumping on the IMAX bandwagon (so far), only makes "New Moon's" gross even more remarkable.


Opening in 3,514 theaters, "New Moon" could also challenge "Dark Knight's" single day gross of $67 million, but that seems a tad unlikely based on a predominantly female only fan base. As for the weekend, the first "Twilight" dropped 49% from Friday to Saturday and the sequel is expected to find a similar drop. On the other hand, "Dark Knight" dropped only 29% over that span. Therefore, breaking the acclaimed thriller's opening weekend gross record of $158.4 million has to be out of reach, but surpassing this year's champ, "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" with $108 million, is entirely possible (at the moment at least).
Overseas fans have also taken a bib bite into the hype as "New Moon" did stellar business in France and Spain on Wednesday. In France, the Vampire flick found $4.35 million U.S. on only 751 prints. Spain's gross was just as strong with $2.1 million U.S. on 603 prints.

With "2012" continuing to do strong business and Sandra Bullock's "The Blind Side" projecting an $18-22 million opening, this could be a record setting weekend at the box office all around for the industry.

*UPDATE* This just in from Summit according to Gossip Cop:
THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON has set a new record for opening midnight shows with an estimated gross of $26.270 million playing at 3,514 theaters for a per theater average of $7,476. THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON passes HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE ($22.2 million) to take the number one spot.* Following POTTER is DARK KNIGHT ($18.5 million).

In addition to THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON, last night Summit re-issued TWILIGHT in theaters. The film grossed $1.3 million playing at 2,057 theaters for a per theater average of $631. The re-issue of Twilight came in just outside the top 15 for the week this is notable especially considering that all came from just 9 PM Thursday night shows.

* Records based on data from industry leader Paul Dergarabedian of BoxOffice.com

EW gives New Moon a B+


Here is a bit from the review:

The production itself, directed by Chris Weitz (The Golden Compass) from a script by Melissa Rosenberg, is fan-ready and saga-solid. Weitz goes for an appealing, slightly old-fashioned look, one in which the near-constant rain nicely mirrors Bella's internal weather conditions. (As embodied by Stewart, she's one pained and stormy chick.) Pattinson looks, to these post-teen eyes, even more to-die-for, with his red lips, amber eyes, and major hair. I wish Jacob, endowed with Lautner's lithe bod and Matt Damonesque grin, had more of a chance with Bella. But, well, book readers know best what happens next in Eclipse. Everyone else can catch up on screen next year. Guaranteed, it will still be raining in Forks, Wash. B+

Vanity Fair's Twilight Watch: A Conversation with Elizabeth Reaser


Elizabeth who plays Esme Cullen in The Twilight saga
spoke to Vanity Fair on the phone from the set of Eclipse, just minutes before
shooting a pivotal scene in the Cullen house. Here's what she had to say about
Nikki Reed, going from Juilliard to Hollywood, and her obsession with Jay-Z.


What has it been like working with
different directors on the same character?

I like it. I think part of
the fun of being an actor is getting to work with different directors and seeing
their take on it, what they’re passionate about. They all have different ideas
about your character. David [Slade] has a very interesting take on Esme. He’s
really passionate about her, that she’s not just this nice, sweet gal; that
she’s still a vampire and she’s still tearing up mountain lions in the middle of
the night and drinking their blood. She’s still the wild beast in a way. It’s
fun to think about that aspect of her character.

Reelz Channel's Interview with Kristen Stewart

The New York Daily gives 'New Moon' 3 out of 5 stars




When it comes to the vampire world, either you’re in or you’re out.

And Chris Weitz, who directs the second chapter in Stephenie Meyer's adored young adult series, knows exactly who matters in this particular club: Bella, Edward, and the girls who love them.

So fans will feel fully at home from the opening scenes of “New Moon,” which establish a pattern that holds all the way through: swooning romance, PG-13 thrills, and enough sharp cheekbones and shirtless boys to carry any adolescent over to the next installment.

Billy Burke says Robert Pattinson is a Goofy Guy


RadarOnline caught up with Billy Burke who plays Charlie Swan, Bella's father in New Moon, at the VH1 SAve the Music Foundation's "Big Shopping" Holiday event in New York City. He told RadarOnline exclusively that she's more like a friend than a daughter. Billy gave RadarOnline details about what everyone's favorite vampire, Robert Pattinson, is really like.

RadarOnline.com: Did you know what you were getting into when you signed up for the first movie?
Burke: I had good idea that it would have an audience. But, I had no idea that it would become this cultural phenomenon. I just really thought that it was such a great love story.

RadarOnline.com: What kind of advice do you give your young co-stars now that they’re experiencing this high level of fame?
Burke: They don’t need any advice from me. They’re all doing very well. You have to let people go through the machine the way they see fit and so far I’ve seen them get treated with nothing but respect. Only advice I would impart is be treated with respect and try not to be full of s**t!

RadarOnline.com: Since you play Kristen Stewart’s Dad in the movie – have you developed a father figure type of relationship with her?
Burke: Kristen is a wise person and an old soul. We get along more like peers than wiser, older guy and young girl. She’s doing fine taking care of herself.

RadarOnline.com: There is so much written about Robert Pattinson, what can you tell us about him?
Burke: Rob Pattinson is a nut! He’s a funny, goofy guy. They want him to be like this James Dean type but he doesn’t take that seriously. I respect what he’s doing.

RadarOnline.com: Will we see you in the fourth Twilight film?
Burke: “They haven’t approached everyone yet for the next movie but I do know that my character is in that book and if they’ll keep having me, I’ll keep coming back.”

Variety has posted their review on : The Twilight Saga:New Moon


Here is a bit from the review:

With more bark than bite, "The Twilight Saga: New Moon"
finds its brooding heroine torn from her depressive, bloodsucking boyfriend and
thrust into the claws of a hunky werewolf. That's sort of like being caught
between a rock and a hard place (or, in high school terms, between a Goth and a
jock), and this second screen installment of Stephenie Meyer's bestselling
series focuses, somewhat convincingly, on the emotions of an 18-year-old coping
with her undying love of the undead. Carried by Kristen Stewart's compellingly
dark performance, but also by helmer Chris Weitz's robust visuals, "Moon" should
cause boffo B.O. tides and could outperform its predecessor, which grossed $383
million worldwide.

Robert Pattinson is in People's issue Of Sexiest Man Alive

Although Robert Pattinson did not get the honor of being called People's Sexiest Man Alive he is however in the issue as a honoree. Check out a sneak peak at who else is in the issue. And, in case you didn't already know Johnny Depp is the winner!
ROBERT PATTINSON
What list of sexy men would be complete without the New Moon heartthrob? From his eyes to his artfully messy hair, the 23-year-old makes girls swoon the world over – or does he? As Pattinson says, "I still can't get a date."

TIME: Q&A with Kristen Stewart


Kristen talks to TIME about living in the Twilight bubble, taking time out to play Joan Jett in the forthcoming movie The Runaways, and what's next for Bella and the undead guys who adore her.

Taking on the beloved Bella is a big responsibility. You're always going to have people who believe you're the best Bella, and people who still hate the casting. Is that difficult?
It's not difficult when it's totally concerning the movie. That I still get and I completely understand. I watch Twilight and New Moon and I think, Gosh, there are a million lines that I wish were in it that aren't. You can't be expected to capture the book — what you are expected to do is capture an essence. That's always subjective. It's something that eternally worries me, but at the same time you have to suppress those thoughts. You would be playing a really disjointed character if you were taking everyone's considerations. It's impossible to please everyone. As long as they know that you are working hard, as hard as you can, I think the actual fans of the book accept that and appreciate that.
