It has been reported in various American media outlets this morning that the second film in the Twilight Saga, New Moon, is about to reset the record for takings at a midnight screening. Pulling between $23 and $24 million for the 12.01 screenings alone, if ticket sales continue through the day, it’s predicted that New Moon will trample all over The Dark Knight’s and Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince’s record takings.

The first single has officially been confirmed for the New Moon Soundtrack! Death Cab for Cutie has written an exclusive song for the movie entitled ‘Meet Me On the Equinox.’ Below is a statement from the band about the song:
“We are very excited to be a part of this amazing series of novels set in our own backyard. It just seemed a perfect synergy that a band from the Northwest would create a song for a series of novels set in the Northwest. We wrote ‘Meet Me On the Equinox’ to reflect the celestial themes and motifs that run throughout the Twilight series and we wanted to capture that desperate feeling of endings and beginnings that so strongly affect the main characters. This song marks the first attempt that Death Cab for Cutie has ever made at contributing new, unreleased material for a film and we are proud to be a part of the Twilight legacy.” — Nick Harmer / Death Cab for Cutie
The album cover is the same as the first promotional movie poster and will be in stores on October 20th, 2009.
Taken straight from Summit Entertainment’s website
Summit Entertainment has announced tonight that Bryce Dallas Howard will take over the role of “Victoria” in the upcoming film The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. Rachelle Lefevre, who played Victoria in Twilight and the upcoming New Moon will not continue in the role due to scheduling conflicts with another commitment the she has made. Eclipse is due to start filming this coming August in Vancouver.
“We are incredibly happy that Bryce has agreed to come into the franchise,” said Erik Feig, Summit’s President of Worldwide Production and Acquisitions. “Rachelle brought “Victoria” to great screen life and Bryce will bring a new dimension to the character. The franchise is lucky to have such a talented actress as Bryce coming in to fill the role.”
Bryce has featured in movies such as Terminator Salvation and Spiderman 3, so it’s not like she’s new to the screen. Still don’t recognise her name? Then check out her picture:
We think she’s kind of cute, and she definitely has the right look about her, but we’re saddened by the fact that Rachelle will no longer hold the role of Victoria. Eclipse is the part of the saga where Victoria becomes a more central character. So what do you guys think, will changing actors this far into the series be problematic? How do you guys feel about it?
Ok, the jury is out. It’s offical! I’m in love with the New Moon trailer! Jacob’s transformation from boy to wolf is un-freaking-believable. It’s SO much better than I thought it would be. After Edward’s sparkling catastrophe in Twilight, I thought for sure they were going to mess that up. But no. Oh no. It’s PERFECT!
And can I just say that Taylor Lautner is looking smoking hot? I love the birthday scene. I love how Jasper ruins Edward’s piano – it makes the whole thing even sadder. Gah. November, why are you so far away?
Now the question is – will Summit hold off on us till then, or will we get another trailer?
For those of you that have seen it – what did you think?
Okay guys, so this is fresh off the press. I’m sure a good quality version will appear on youtube in the next few hours, but if you want to take a look at the New Moon trailer head on over to www.bellaandedward.com. They have a HD version posted on their main page!
