Top Five New Moon Quotes Featured on Hypable

Over at Hypable they are featuring quotes from different fandoms. Today the top five quotes from New Moon came up.

4. “I thought briefly of the clichés, about how you were supposed to see your life flash before your eyes. I was so much luckier. Who wanted to see a rerun, anyway?”

Bella says that in her mind while drowning. It’s miserable. I always cried when reading that (and I’m a guy!). Meyer creates deep psychologies for her characters and I think that’s why her characters are sometimes unaccepted. They are too real (even when they’re vampires) that readers are not used to that. They are used to either very good or extremely bad characters, which doesn’t exist in reality. Twilight characters have flaws, just like real people, which makes them perfectly-thought out characters in my opinion.

Check out what other quotes made the list on Hypable and why. It’s a pretty good list, and somewhat unusual in that it is complied by a guy since the majority of the fandom is female.

The lucky 75 people at each location get to come back the day the cast members are there and  get a chance to have their photos taken with the actors and to receive an autographed photo and frame.


So, to sum up the FAQ’s we’ve been getting in our inbox:

1. You need to choose whether you want to go to Hot Topic or Nordstrom for a chance at these tickets

2. Specific cast members are unknown for locations

3. Times are not announced yet for the November appearances

4.We don’t know if the same cast members will appear at both HT and Nordstrom on the same day.

5. The Times Square location is the Toy R Us that has a Hot Topic inside.

6. It is unknown if malls will let you line up days early with tents, sleeping bags, etc. That’s up to mall management and the local authorities. We suggest you contact the specific Nordstrom or HT to see what their crowd control game plan is.

Where is the Twilight Cast Going to Be?

Well it looks like they are turning up everywhere!

Peter Facinelli is hitting the Arizona State Fair, and TwiFans and Cullen Boys Anonymous have a ticket giveaway.

Alex Meraz, Edi Gathegi, and Chaske Spencer are in Altantic City at Harrahs.

Kellan Lutz is at a hockey game in Peoria.

New Moon Selling Out Like Crazy

As each movie chain in various area of the USA and the world put their tickets for New Moon online, one thing happens…you guessed it…they sell out.

According to the LA Times:

“Online ticket sellers MovieTickets and Fandango report that the follow-up to last year’s hit from Summit Entertainment, which sold $191.5 million worth of tickets in the U.S. and Canada, is selling out screenings earlier than any other movie to date.

“New Moon” has sold out 50 showtimes of nearly 22,000 offered on Fandango and 13 showtimes of 2,912 offered on MovieTickets. Most of the sold-out shows are at or around midnight Nov. 20, when the movie debuts.”

This will be interesting to see if New Moon breaks the total set by Twilight.  Conventional wisdom in Hollywood would suggest that sequels don’t do as well as originals. There’s one thing we’ve learned in three years of covering Twilight—forget conventional wisdom, it almost never applies here!

Fandango Talks New Moon and Fall Movies

Fandango talks fall movies and of course New Moon is one of the highly anticipated movies coming out this fall. Chris Weitz talks vampires and werewolves:

The vampire-werewolf feud makes for a nice exploration of our own psyches, said “New Moon” director Chris Weitz.

“I suppose they’re the two most relatable human monsters that we can think of. They nicely encapsulate restraint and passion,” Weitz said. “Vampires are cold-blooded, literally, and werewolves are hot-blooded.”
