Well given the announcement that New Moon has been officially greenlit anything else today seems pretty…well…superfluous. Anyway, Alphie and I have just gotten back from our movie event and dinner. We hope that everyone who came to Nashville to see the movie with us had as much of a blast as we did. We’ll post pictures and video later in the week.
So in seeing the movie ourselves we loved it! Are there some things we didn’t like, sure, but that’s true with any movie. We pretty much feel that Summit got it right. Kudos to Catherine, Melissa, The cast, The producers, and way too many people to list. Thanks for respecting the heart of the story and transcending it to screen.
As for various media naysayers who said things along the lines of, ‘It will never be that big." "It’s only for tweens." "Well the (insert random, predictable comment on fangs, goth attire, and blood here) crowd is the only ones who are going to like it." and my personal favorite "well it’s just women, that’s not going to make money." The only thing we can say is this, "37 million so far. How do you like them apples, baby!?"

Anyway here’s the best news over the last 24 hours or so.
