BadLipReading took on more of The Twilight Saga, dubbing over the usually awkward pauses and monosyllabic dialogue in New Moon with more interesting topics. In this version, both Jacob and Edward are sick — Jacob from porpoise meat and Edward from being so damn drunk. There’s also talk of dying rabbits and shaving.
Part two of the Twilight Saga, New Moon features werewolves, shirtless dudes, terrible acting and even more AWKWARD stares. If you’re planning to see the new Breaking Dawn but don’t know what to expect, this Honest Trailer by screenjunkies should prepare you.

We guess Kristen Stewart is more like her Twilight character, Bella Swan, than we thought!
Instead of ringing in her 21st birthday with the traditional booze, her Breaking Dawn co-stars decided to wring in Stewart’s big 2-1 with none other than a motorcycle as a gift, reports MTV.
“Rob was so excited for Kristen, and they each took turns riding it. Kristen learned to ride a dirt bike in ‘New Moon‘ so they thought it would be appropriate,” a source said. “Rob was supervising as she sat on it to make sure she was OK. They looked like they were having a great time, and it will be something they can really enjoy!”
Stewart, along with beau Robert Pattinson and co-star Taylor Lautner, among others, celebrated her big day at Rockwell’s Bar & Grill in Squamish, British Columbia on her birthday this past Saturday night.
“Rob led the crowd singing for her, and you could tell she was so embarrassed but in a cute way!” a source told Us Weekly. “Everyone was in a good mood, but it was a bittersweet night [as filming is almost complete].”
As excited as you are about your new gift, Kristen, we advise you to be careful –a shirtless and “sorta beautiful” Jacob Black/Taylor Lautner can’t always be there to help you when you fall!
When filming “New Moon”, Robert Pattinson needed some extra protection from the screaming fans. So producers of the film hired some Canadian mounties, reports RadarOnline.com.
“It was an unusual mission but our remit was to keep the fans off the set,” Constable Baillant told RadarOnline.com exclusively. “Everything went well on the first day but then a group of teenage girls got a little too close when the filming moved to the Long Beach area of the island.”
“They were totally miffed with us when we told them that they could not get any closer, however, their spirits lifted when Kristin Stewart came over to pose for a few photographs with them,” he recalled. “It was raining really hard the whole time but the producers loved that because it helped to make their scenes much more gloomy and atmospheric too. This is a beautiful part of the world but when it gets cold and wet even a vampire would get the chills.”
Hollywood stars Lady Gaga, Conan O’Brien and Kathryn Bigelow were the top three in the artist section and others like Taylor Swift, Ashton Kutcher and Robert Pattinson closely followed behind. Sandra Bullock, Lea Michele and Marc Jacobs were also on the list.
There were some obvious ones like Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and Bill Clinton. Brazilian president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva topped the leaders list.
Ben Stiller was near the top of the heroes list for his charity StillerStrong.org, to help build schools in Haiti.
So is it fair to put Lady Gaga in a list with Barack Obama? Her fashion sense was only a small part of why the magazine put her on the list. “Lady Gaga’s art captures the period we’re in right now,” they say.
A young 20-year-old Taylor Swift made the list and Stevie Nicks reminded us why. “Taylor is writing for the universal woman and for the man who wants to know her…It’s women like her who are going to save the music business.”
It’s also a time when other celebrities actually have nice things to say about one another. Here are a few other stars weighing in on the list, according to E! Online.
Olivia Newton-John credits Michele with “inspiring young people to get involved in musical programs in schools and encouraging communities to fund them.”
New Moon director Chris Weitz raved about Pattinson, describing him as seeming “to answer Freud’s rhetorical question, ‘What do women want?’ “
Sean “Diddy” Combs was gracious about his friend Kutcher. “Most people use it to promote themselves, but [Ashton] uses Twitter to connect, to strike up conversations, to send positive messages to the millions of people who read his words. This guy will show us the future. And it’s gonna be a blast.”

The release of New Moon on DVD has been announced for March 20th.
Accompanying the film is a six-part behind-the-scenes documentary, rehearsal footage from Muse, music videos from Death Cab For Cutie, Anya Marina, and Mute Math, and commentary from Chris Weitz (director), and Peter Lambert (editor).
It looks like this werewolf is transforming into a more human hero.
Taylor Lautner has just been cast as a college student who will travel to Cancun with a girl on spring break with Summit Entertainment’s latest investment. On his road to becoming an elite soldier, Lautner’s character experiences an injury, forcing him to put his dreams on hold. It turns out his early career anticipation may help him in the end. According to perezhilton.com, the young stud will be forced to save his friend and her group of girls who have been taken hostage by a drug cartel.
Taylor Lautner’s bare chest seems to have attracted the fashion industry, who are willing to cover it up with couture.
The New Moon werewolf is apparently set to become the new 17-year-old spokesperson of Giorgio Armani. According to InTouch, the Italian-inspired line is trying to sign Lautner up for a brand new advertisement campaign for fragrances along with the less-pricey line, A/X Armani Exchange. The site also states that this deal could mean a big paycheque for the young star.
As the box office numbers show, this movie is a hit. It’s breaking records and kicking ass and taking names. While doing so it’s taking its young cast and making them pop-culture icons. We had the pleasure of speaking with one of those people – Cameron Bright, after the release of the film, and find out how he is surviving all the hype.
Ashley Greene, who plays Alice Cullen in the Twilight films thanks her hectic work schedule for her figure, reports Perez Hilton.
“We were working 12 hours a day,” said the 22-year-old, “so it didn’t leave too much time to eat. We had a personal trainer and then we also had fight training. It was a good four hours a day of training.”
She said when she did eat on-set, it was really healthy stuff, and she also takes the time to do Pilates. “I do it early in the morning. It wakes you up and it’s kind of refreshing. And that is basically it. Sometimes cardio. I am not a big weight person because when I do weights I build muscle mass.”
As if the line-ups outside movie theatres didn’t give it away, the official reports are in: The Twilight Saga: New Moon topped the box office this weekend with $140. 7 million. New Moon now sits at number three in the list of highest ranking box office weekends of all time, alongside The Dark Knight ($158.4 million) and Spider-Man 3 ($151.1 million).
“New Moon proves not only that the importance of teen girls at the box-office cannot be overstated, but also that going out to see a movie like this in a theater creates a communal event that can become a cultural phenomenon,” Paul Dergarabedian, president of the box-office division of Hollywood.com, told The Wall Street Journal.
New Moon posted the largest opening-day box office record with $72.7 million, beating out The Dark Knight‘s first day.
When Twilight opened in 2008, it grossed $192.8 million after about 19 weeks in theatres, but as the Thanksgiving weekend approaches, critics are speculating New Moon will beat those numbers within a few days. More than 2,000 theatres in the US re-screened Twilight for a one-day teaser for fans, and grossed a total of $1.3 million.
It’s no great surprise that the Pope isn’t a major endorser of the Twlight series.
Conveniently timed to the release of the “New Moon” sequel to Twilight, the Vatican culture council leader, Monsignor Franco Perazzolo, issued a statement about the underlying evil in the series. According to E! online, he said “this film is nothing more than a moral vacuum with a deviant message and as such should be of concern”
His next comment further solidifies his position on the vampire and werewolf packed flick. “This theme of vampires in Twilight combines a mixture of excesses that, as ever, is aimed at young people and gives a heavy esoteric element.”
Looks like the vampire-craze is here to stay.
The Twilight Saga: New Moon was released today (November 20), much to the enjoyment of avid Twilighters everywhere. According to ew.com, the flick set a new record for opening midnight shows, and it grossed around $26.3 million. Move aside, Harry Potter (who earned $2.2 million in the summer).
The story follows Edward and Bella, as well as incorporating the new wolf-gang that up-and-comer Taylor Lautner is a big part of. For those who have read the book, and followed the series, they already know about the consequences of a love triangle with a vampire and a werewolf. If not, Kristen Stewart’s (who plays Bella) anguish will be made clear through the Chris Weitz’s-directed film.
I am not the audience for this movie.
I did not see the original Twilight. I read the novel and was horrified; how many teenage girls truly believe that men like Edward Cullen exist? (Fewer, probably, than the number of boys men who expect to meet a gorgeous independent woman who caters to their every whim and is miraculously attracted to slovenly underachievers, but that’s a rant for another film.) In real life a man who stalks protects a woman the way Edward does will continue to do so whether her life’s in danger or not. Perhaps the majority of Twilight fans recognize this, and treat the stories as wish fulfillment, much as this reviewer does with good romantic comedies (though not, it must be said, The Ugly Truth, which peddled a similar adolescent fantasy).
On that level, New Moon delivers. It reproduces the central appeal of the books: a man who’s faster, stronger, more romantic, better at playing baseball and musical instruments alike and more beautiful than anyone you could possibly imagine falls for Bella Swan, an ordinary, unremarkable-looking girl, and continually professes not only that he loves her, but that he cannot live without her. So protective is he that when his otherworldly urges place her in danger he actually abandons her to protect her.
This is the basest sort of adolescent fantasy, the kind any writer who’s attended university could dream up, and yet it would be undone by a sense of manufactured cynicism if author Stephenie Meyer didn’t wholeheartedly believe in it. She does, and it would appear a wide cross-section of the western world does too.
OK everybody, the Twilight saga continues with New Moon (ladies please control your crying). We were lucky to sit down with Canadian heartthrob Bronson Pelletier for an interview during the recent press stop in Toronto. Bronson plays Jared in the movie and apparently had to get jacked up to play his werewolf character. He also spoke with us about his relationships with his fellow Twilight actors.
One day before they invaded Los Angeles’ Hollywood & Highland Centre, the cast of “New Moon” kicked off their tour with a stop at a Nordstrom packed with infatuated Twilighters. Featuring appearances by fan favorites Edi Gathegi, Christian Serratos, Alex Meraz, Chaske Spencer, Bronson Pelletier and Kiowa Gordon, the group spoke exclusively to MTV News about their future plans between now and the premiere of “New Moon” on November 20.
“We’re here today — half the wolf pack, a sexy vampire and a regular human,” laughed Gathegi, who plays the (mostly) evil Laurent in the saga. “We’re here to meet 125 fans, take pictures with them and send them home happy.”
Apparently they did their job. Eager Twilighters were ecstatic to meet their favorite members if the “Twilight” saga. The merchandise also assisted in the general elated atmosphere as well.
“There’s this white shirt, and it has a giant tree on it and a bird,” Serratos said of her favorite piece in the Nordstrom “Twilight” line. “It’s really tight; I like it.”
Now that she’s finished filming New Moon, Dakota Fanning has returned to a normal life as a cheerleader at Campbell Hall Episcopal High School in North Hollywood, reports E! News.
Fanning, 15, was named the school’s homecoming princess at Friday’s football game.
Anyone who didn’t get a chance to see her shake her pom-poms and show off her tiara can catch the star in the second installment of the Twilight series, which hits theatres Nov. 20.
Had enough of vampires? Too bad. If you’re not a fan of Twilight, you’re a clear minority these days.
The Twilight Saga: New Moon soundtrack has been propelled to the Number One spot on the Billboard Top 200 after one week on the shelves and digital services, reports rollingstone.com.
The album sold an additional 153,000 copies this week – a 33 per cent increase over its debut week on sale. Tim McGraw’s Southern Voice debuted at Number Two and Michael Buble’s Crazy Love dropped to Number Three after a two-week reign at Number One.
According to current estimations, however, New Moon‘s time at the top of the charts will be short-lived. Another, and perhaps even more hyped, soundtrack is expected to take New Moon‘s place: Michael Jackson’s This Is It.
The soundtrack that coincides with the documentary film of the same name is estimated to sell 300,000 to 350,000 copies, giving the late King of Pop his sixth Number One album on the Top 200, and his first since Invincible from 2001. While Jackson’s 2003 greatest hits album Number Ones is the year’s bestselling album with 2.2 million copies sold, it was not eligible for the Top 200 when it was taking the top spot in sales following Jackson’s death on June 25.
The New Moon soundtrack listing is now available. Is it everything Twilight fans hoped?
1. Death Cab for Cutie – Meet Me On the Equinox
2. Band of Skulls – Friends
3. Thom Yorke – Hearing Damage
4. Lykke Li – Possibility
5. The Killers – A White Demon Love Song
6. Anya Marina – Satellite Heart
7. Muse- I Belong To You (New Moon Remix)
8. Bon Iver & St. Vincent- Rosyln
9. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club – Done All Wrong
10. Hurricane Bells – Monsters
11. Sea Wolf- The Violet Hour
12. OK Go – Shooting the Moon
13. Grizzly Bear – Slow Life
14. Editors – No Sound But the Wind
15. Alexandre Desplat – New Moon (The Meadow)
We have the trailer for New Moon which debuted at the VMA’s on Sunday. Will it be as big or even bigger than Twilight? Probably. Expect to see more visual effects, werewolves, motorcylce stunts, and a whole lot more!
