We have been told that in 3500 Walmarts across the nation New Moon mini stores/kiosks will be opening tomorrow (March 10th). Each store will have a New Moon Hotspot located behind the accessories area. Some store will feature 2 New Moon locations with the additional location being in the electronics area.

These hotspots will be where Walmart will be hosting their DVD midnight release parties on March 20th. Unlike corporate parties in the past, Walmart seems to know what fans want. Exclusively we have inside information on some of the party plans….

The first 100 in line will be getting special goodies.

These goodies will include a folder with:

New Moon trading cards
Temporary tattoos
Stickers

There will be games and New Moon water bottles will be one of the prizes. I might be partying at a Walmart this go round. Want to find a Walmart party near you? Go here.

We also exclusively have a preview of the NEW ‘New Moon’ merchandise that will be in the Walmart New Moon hotspots.

Comments

  1. I went to Walmart last year and it wasn’t anything like this… I know someone who works at a Walmart and another thing that will happen at Walmart… There will be 3 lines (Cullen, Wolfpack, Volturi). There will also be trivia. I’m not sure what the trivia is over, but I’m assuming the movie.

  2. i work at wally hole and i get off at 11 so ill be hanging around afterwards for some goodies HOLLA BACK! gonna go in earlay to put my copy aside for 12:01 word nerd!

  3. Wow. This is awesome. If only it applied to Canada….

    call and check with a store near you before you plan on attending a party. stores are not exactly required to host these events, just encouraged by corporate. I love twilight, so as a manager in my store, i make a huge deal out of it, especially for the local teens that come in for twilight and the former potter premiers. corporate sends these items to all stores, but not all make the event a priority or even a reality. so check before you go, some stores just have you line up and set out the free items. if you are in nc, come by our store for a huge event and screening of the movie with popcorn, games, and a giveaway for cmn!

      where in north carolina? i’m tempted to go just to get free stuff and watch the movie! haha

      i’m going for the target dvd, but i dont think they’re doing a midnight release. this worries me a bit. will target have the dvds IN STORES on March 20???

      • I work at target we will not have a midnight release party but yes New Moon dvd is already there waiting to be put out at 8am on Saturday!!I am getting the regular dvd to watch and the collectors edition to keep,thats what I suggest if you are a collector like me.

  5. Victoria says:

    AHH!! I CANNOT WAIT!!!!!

  6. Sweet beans. I’ll be there, just like last year!

  7. Julie M. says:

    I wish they would realize that not all of the fans are teens or junior sized. Make bigger shirts!!! Those of you that work at Walmart, pass that info on to your management, please.

  8. Team Switzerland says:

    I plan on heading our to a Wal Mart release party. I went to a Borders release last year and was bored to tears.

  9. Michele M says:

    I was at one of my local walmart earlier today and they already have their New Moon merchandise out. It is pretty much like last year and all the items listed above were there. If you are wanting any of the items I would recommend you stop by your local store and get them while they have them cuz last year they were picked over pretty quicly. 8-)

  10. I’m still so confused as to which version of the movie is going to be the best in terms of extras etc. Yes walmart’s will have Eclipse footage but in the long run i.e. after all the movies are out, is that extra feature going to matter as much?

    I have Target’s version from last year…

  11. i don’t understand why walmart shirts are only junior sizes..even the supposed XXL is really only a med-large womens size. it does not even compare to misses. I normally wear an XL misses and the xxl juniors twilight shirt i bought at walmart is skin tight..
    do they not realize that their are adult women not just teens that want these shirts?

    • I agree. The shirts only have those little half-cap sleeves too. Or whatever they’re called. I have curves and while I don’t mind sharing them with my hubby they’re not generally something I display like that. When will merchandisers realize that not all fans are 12????

    I hear you on the junior sized shirts, I work at Walmart and we have no idea why they ordered only juniors. Last year we had mens shirts available too and they sold just as well. Our only guess is that perhaps in some markets the mens shirts didn’t sell quite as well as they did at our store, so corporate didn’t see them as profitable. Sucks I know! Our store has all ready passed along the concern to Home Office, but I suggest those of you in different areas, calmly mention it to the management at your store and perhaps we’ll get misses or mens shirts for Eclipse. Just remember don’t take the lack of bigger shirts out on the associates or managers, because we don’t order the merchandise. Wish we could though cause we’d have a lot better things sometimes! :)

    As one person mentioned above call your store to make sure they are having a midnight release event. Corporate is pushing it, but it’s the management in the stores that will make the decisions. We didn’t really have one last year, and Twilight caught us off guard with a massive crowd and a “run” on the pallet. This year we are having a “party” but it will be while people are in a line due to security reasons. We had people run over last year trying to get the 2 disc version, so we are making sure there is not the same kind of problem. We will be having cake, trivia, a drawing, and giveaways too. This is in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. :)

    • It’s because they still have this misguided idea that only teenagers like Twilight! They still refuse to acknowledge the older fans!!!!!!

  13. omg i cant wait for it to come out i wonder if walmarts in alabama are goin to have a new moon party im super excited i love that movie(:

  14. Mrs. Taylor Lautner says:

    I love New Moon it is awesome to you all who like team jacob you will love this movie because i am and i do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. I wish they would realize that not all of the fans are teens or junior sized. Make bigger shirts!!!

  16. Mrs. Lautner says:

    I love New Moon it is the best movie ever once all the movies comeout me and my friends are having party. GO WOLFPACK!!!!!!

  17. I just got back from our local walmart’s DVD release party. What a joke. no games… no water bottles as prizes although there were a few given away to the first people in line… I was there at 10:30. and around the 40th person in line. there was no food, no entertainment.. the cake ran out before 50 people. I was so disappointed. I went because my daughter and neice are 11 and really wanted to go. As a Twilight fan myself I got carried away too… What a waste of two hours. Why did they even bother??????

    • And let me add, they had signs everywhere at our store advertising the ” food, entertainment, and games” for the ” party”. They rushed us thru the line .. very rudely i might add especially when i asked about the games and prizes. the woman thru her hand up like” talk to the hand i dont have time for you”. I didnt even purchase a movie, i’ll go get it from target.
