with The Twilight Saga: New Moon now released and in theatres,
reviews and any other sorts of news will be gushing in like a
waterfall. In order to maintain the community I will need at least
THREE NEW MODS, since we lost one of them not too long ago.

So we need YOU to apply!

Also: NO news will be posted until our new mods are
ready-to-go and have been found. Thank you.

This is probably the fourth time I have pulled this off in the time weitz_bd was born, but this time I'm very serious about my job as a mod -- I promise not to pull off the vanishing act again.

I'd like to let you all know that this community is well alive and thriving ( very slowly ) once again. I need to let everyone know that this IS a community, and we will stay along as long as it takes. I enjoy the new members slowly trickling in, but I would LOVE to see more of you come on in! I know there is more of you out there that support Chris Weitz as Breaking Dawn's director.

So, in celebration of the return of the community, I am holding a weitz_bd moderator application. As the only mod I am in some desperate need of help, but all details will be posted in the next modpost! Stay tuned!

Well, at this point, the trend is pretty hard to miss - The Twilight Saga: New Moon has undeniably become a pop culture figurehead feature of the year 2009.

Apparently, in the viral video viewings department, New Moon sits in the lead of viral sensations of 2009 - mostly joined on the top ten list by popular musicians for their music videos.

Summit's 'Twilight' dilemma: Splitting last novel into two films means expensive talks

The two-week $481 million worldwide gross of "New Moon" has vaulted Summit Entertainment into the big leagues, but it also has created a high-class challenge for toppers Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger.

They will likely have to cut a few big checks if they decided, as rumored, to split Stephenie Meyer's final "Twilight" novel, "Breaking Dawn," into two pictures. Sources said Summit has set Melissa Rosenberg -- who wrote the first three films -- to finish the series, but Summit has to clear several hurdles before Rosenberg learns how many more scripts she'll write.

One of those hurdles is figuring out whether "New Moon" director Chris Weitz will respond favorably to overtures from the film company and the cast to shoot two more films, back to back.

Comic-Con 2009. Better known as THE BIGGEST EVENT OF THE YEAR (besides New Moon being released).

This post will be edited once Comic-Con has ended. As we know, the entire Twilight cast is there, including our lovely director Chris Weitz! 

This post is for MODS ONLY (meaning me). I will provide every aspect and angle of Comic-Con once the event ends. It's starting now, so be ready!

*He's met with David Slade and expects the filmmaker's vision for "Eclipse" to be different than what he's doing with "New Moon," but with the same actors and visual effects team.

*He's flattered that fans want him to direct "Breaking Dawn" without seeing "New Moon," but thinks the fans will want Slade to do it by the time "Eclipse" comes out.

*Weitz needs to turn the film in by Oct. 30 to strike prints or if not, they are in "big trouble" to make the release date.
A very lengthy tell-all reveals several aspects from the movie New Moon. Are you looking forward to this as much as I am?

Speculation about who will appear on the New Moon soundtrack heated up this week after director Chris Weitz dropped a few big names to a RottenTomatoes.com interviewer: "The criterion will still always be what's right for the movie at that given moment, but Thom Yorke is interested; we might, if we're very lucky, get Kings of Leon to do something." Well, well!

But don't get too excited just yet. Yorke's camp would neither confirm nor deny the Radiohead frontman's reported involvement to EW at this time. The Kings of Leon connection, meanwhile, seems even more tenuous. "Not as of right now, no," KoL lead singer Caleb Followill tells EW's Whitney Pastorek when asked if his band will contribute to the Twilight sequel. "I haven't had any time to write any music, we've been so busy… I would have to write a song in my hotel room, which I think we might could do, but I don't know. As of right now I'm more focused on getting some rest and writing another album."

Oh well. For now, at least, sounds like the New Moon soundtrack field is still very much wide open. It'd be a choice gig for any up-and-comer, considering how successful the first Twilight film's soundtrack was. So whose tunes would you like to hear in the next teen-vampire flick this fall? Sink your fangs into some suggestions in the comments below.

Rotten Tomatoes, a movie-critic site, has published an in-depth report from Vancouver, the current filming location for the rest of the Twilight movies.
Focus fell particularly on Fanning, dressed in a soft, vintage-style white dress, a dark velvet cape, and Mary Janes. Her blonde hair swept into a bun, with pale skin and scarlet lips and dark eye makeup, she had the look of a textbook Little Red Riding Hood — albeit one with blood-red eyes and a steely eeriness about her. “She’s immune to all of us,” Michael Sheen as Aro mused, directing his warrior to turn her pain-inducing powers on Bella. “Shall we, Jane?”

With nary a peep, Fanning’s eyes lit up. She turned her head towards Bella/Kristen Stewart, and gave a slight, cruel smile. Well, the hint of a smile, really. The tension was palpable; in that miniscule movement I was sold on Fanning — at 15 years of age, one of New Moon’s seasoned veterans — and her ability to convey unadulterated malice. On film, you’ll see her bring poor Robert Pattinson to his knees, and you might even enjoy it.
You can read the rest of the report at the website.

Found a picture of Alice Cullen (Ashley Greene) and Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) talking with Chris Weitz before or during filming. This looks like the scene when Alice returns to try to save Bella, even if she had been too late.

It isn't in the highest quality, but you can view a full-sized image HERE.
