New Title For New Moonthegoldensimatar
As much as we like to belly-ache, slam and generally make fun of the Twilight franchise, there's no denying the series is popular. Its fans are just about as rabid as Harry Potter fans and like HP, we're getting adaptations. Well, for the fan(s) here, great and wonderful news. The brand new title for the second film has been revealed. Yes, the studio has decided to rename the second novel in the series. No longer will you be seeing just New Moon, you'll be seeing The Twilight Saga: New Moon.
Check out over at MTV where they got the new title card, its not very impressive so don't get your hopes up too high. No doubt Summit decided to tack on The Twilight Saga to try and make this franchise seem more like a Harry Potter franchise for the female teen/college age base. Also they might have thought that for the folks who haven't heard of the series, this would help lure them back into theaters come November.
All I can really say is that I'm half interested in taking a peek at this. Now before anyone starts questioning my horrorhound cred, I just wanna see if how the folks turn from humans to werewolves in this movie is just as cheesey as it was in Blood and Chocolate. New Moon is directed by Christ Weitz (The Golden Compass) and is due in theaters on November 20, 2009.
