A guy reads Twilight by Stephenie Meyer (2009-2011)

NEW MOON: The First Poster


Announcing: the first official poster from the much-anticipated NEW MOON movie! Click above for an image so high-resolution, you can nearly count every hair on Edward’s head (and I know some of you might). The video below has my thoughts and questions about it:

From Summit:

In THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON, Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) is devastated by the abrupt departure of her vampire love, Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) but her spirit is rekindled by her growing friendship with the irresistible Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner). Suddenly she finds herself drawn into the world of the werewolves, ancestral enemies of the vampires, and finds her loyalties tested.

Based on the best-selling book series, THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON opens in theatres everywhere November 20. It is the highly anticipated next installment to the movie TWILIGHT, which has grossed $380MM globally at the box office, and has become a worldwide sensation and cultural phenomenon.

  1. Why is Edward so much taller than Jacob? Jake is supposed to be like 7 foot tall…

    LOL it does look like Jake is stabbing Bella with a knife. Good one.

  2. I LUV IT! CANT WAIT TILL THE MOVIE! btw i heard that the movie is suppose to be better than the book!

  3. Well guess what. I have two other New Moon posters. With the flippin logo and everything. Seriously. I Do. It's really Robert Pattinson and Bella. In Two seperate posters. I started screaming when i got them. Go to my website if yooooou want to see them. elisepoetry.blogspot.com

  4. Love it! I also really liked Alba's comment, somewhere above me. But it's grreat! I don't know, maybe I'm just psyched because it's got Jake in it (not to mention Taylor xD) But I think it's….well…great!

  5. this is so awesome!!

    Thanks Kaleb for waiting to post it!!!!

    actually i am not impressed by the poster (i know it will be great anyway), but more your attitude doing the right thing (respect Summit). Good on you!

  6. Hey! I am soo like you! I read EVERY SINGLE DETAIL of pictures, etc! I think your little observations were very insightful. Movie posters are soo inportant because it's like a little preview of the film itself and the emotions in it.
    Glad you read “too much into it”-I enjoyed reading what you had to say! πŸ™‚

  7. It looks like Jacob is protecting Bella from Edward, something he always wanted to do.

  8. oh my good golly gosh!
    i flippin love it!!!!!!
    it's gorgeousssssssss…..
    lovin how you put it on the background, very niiice πŸ™‚

    and thanks for waiting till summit ACTUALLY RELEASED it.
    seriously, i like it alot better when people just wait till when it's supposed to happen, it's way more exciting that way πŸ™‚

  9. I still think that they put way too much makeup on rob, he always looks quite sickly when he's going all “vampire.”

  10. lol. It's much better than the ones for Twilight… though I have to agree that Bella looks a little different… maybe its the make up. XD

    And Edward?… whats up with the chesthair?! Isnt he supposed to be pretty much hairless? XD

    Thats all I can say.

  11. totally agree with you. i love the positioning of the characters. perfect order<333

  12. yeah i totally think kristen looks like kristen in this, not bella. especially as bella in twilight, she looked way different

  13. I completely agee. I do not like the positioning at all. It makes no sense to have Edward at the forefront except to serve as eye candy for the fan girls. This book is about Bella and in this photo it feels as though she was an insignificant afterthought. (you are right she does look out of proportion).

    To me this poster does not represent new moon at all. It is more Eclipse than New Moon with Jacob standing between Edward and Bella (it even has an eclipse in the background!!!!). And most importantly, this poster does not convey, in any way, the pain that is so central to this story. Kristen's face looks model-blank than devastated.

    There are elements to this poster that I really like (such as Jacob – he looks great) but overall I thought it was really disappointing. *sigh*

  14. A new moon is not the same as a full moon.

    A new moon = no moon. Darkness.

  15. LisiPie, I went to your website and there are no posters there. I can only assume that you are talking about the two sepia posters with Bella walking aimlessly through the mist and Edward with his shirt open in front of the ruins.

    Whilst these posters are awesome, they're fan made and (if they are the ones I am thinking of) they have a turkey stamp in the top right hand corner. Sorry!

  16. Yep, I couldn't actually see the dark bit of the moon. I thought it was a whole one XD I know what an eclipse is.

  17. I love it! It really shows what New Moon is all about! It makes me want to see the movie soo bad!
    It's beautiful! I want it for my wall!

  18. I agree with A. and Rach. This poster is SO very disappointing. Since I really disliked the first movies, I have high expectations for the movie sequel, but this is repellent, really.
    Kristen looks like she is going to do a lap dance to Taylor as soon as Robert is gone, and why on earth is Robert standing in front of them ? What is this order of appearance on the photograph : 1/Edward 2/Jacob 3/Bella ? NO !
    Bella should be standing in front of both of them, without this teasing expression, and without touching Jacob's arm like this, and, oh, what does R.P. look like on it ? Come on, he looks like an super shy high school teenage lover. Seriously.
    Bella is MAIN in this book, it is all about her choice and her pain. On this poster, it just looks like nothing like this.

  19. For the most part I like this poster, it's definitely better than the Twilight one where neither Bella or Edward looked like themselves in the movie. The one thing is I don't like Kristen's/Bellas face. I don't know if its the makeup or shadowing in the picture but it looks weird to me. And why is Edward in front? He's gone for most of the movie! (Don't get me wrong I LOVE Edward but come on Summit don't put Rob in front just because his celebrity has exploded & to please the fangirls.) I can't wait till we get more pictures, especially of the Volturi.

  20. Yeah, this is roughly 450,000 times better than the Twilight poster. I like that Rob is front and center despite the fact that Edward's in about 1/5 of the book. Doesn't bother me, though. I ♥ him.

  21. ok so im a huge Edward fan but i got to say………. Jacob looks sexy in this poster!!!!!

  22. Okay for some reason upon seeing this poster just now I started bursting out in laughter! I couldnt help it! I have no idea why! My shoulders are still shaking! I dont know if its just the look on Rob's face or…..how clueless Kristin looks as Bella or how fierce Taylor seems…Its just so comical! I mean dont get me wrong, I love it! Alot! I really do! But I just cant stop laughing!!! I still dont know why!
    LMAO so much right now!
    Anyway, it really is a great poster!

  23. Wow….

    I love that you can especially see the tension between Edward and Jacob. That is definately going to be sweet on the eyes in the movie.

    I can't wait for it to come out, really!

  24. That being said i agree with Rach and A.

    While this first poster makes for a fun, pulpy picture to delight us young girls (and guys), it doesn't exactly capture the essence of New Moon. Bella should be the main focus, i think.

    But does anyone think that if Edward and Jacob switched places it would be a good pulpy picture for Eclipse?

  25. OMG!!! That is amazing… and just answereing your question : It's not an Eclipse… that's a New Moon
    Anyway… thank-you soooo much for posting it!!!

  26. I think the picture makes sense. Bella's with Jacob and Edward's over there looking back at her. And glaring at Jacob. I don' t know who Jacob is glaring at though…..

  27. I HAVE to tell my frind Sky, we're both obsessed with Twilight! She's my Twilight Addict Friend! Thanks Kaleb!

  28. yes im also glad you wrote that….its nice to read something other than omg i love it,,,,,,,which i do lol you seeem like the creative type and i think you should persue your creative tallent,,,,,this is the sort of stuff we need in the photographic nd art analysis career,,,,,well done,,,,,,,,,,and im sure you could do much much better,,,,,,,,,thumbs up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    i luv the poster lol im not going to try and out do u lol
    well done

  29. I love this poster. I want it so bad now.
    I think that it is true that Bella should be in the middle of Edward and Jacob. I Can't wait until the movie comes out….

  30. It would still be better if Jacob looked like a Quilleute, not a Southwest Whatever Native American. Quilleute's are round-faced, kind of like Mexican's from Oaxaca, not slim-faced with sharp cheekbones. Stefanie Meyer went to the trouble of identifying an actual heritage for Jacob. It seems disrespectful to not honor that in casting, it's like saying all Indians look the same. A bit racist, no?

  31. thats exactly what i thought
    niceeee. i like the poster, but Edward should be behind. its kind of misleading.

  32. me too im reading the book twilight so far its really good i can't wqit to find out what happends to bella and edward and them all in the next 3 books btw my name is emma to LOL!!!!!!!

  33. OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I LOOOVVVEEE ITTTT sOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCCCHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i just hppe that they wont make jake look more attractive than he is in dat poster i always never liked jacob black in the books it was just different to thnk a bout a werewolf than a vampire but if jake gets any more attractive i wont be focusing on eddie as much as i used to :''''( but watever thanx so much for showing me this poster oh and toon in on may 31 sunday MTV awards they are showing a clip of NEW MOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and im definitley recording that bella looks really different in the poster though and well edward……..is edward right ladies???????????????they made bella look grown but oh well new moon is the best book to me and i hope it will be the best movie and i hope awl the other movies will be too oh and has anyone heard about midnight sun????????????????????? well tell me plz kaleb if you have thanx and go edward!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  34. IDIOTS!!!!!!!!!!!! tats not a new moon a new moon when its completly when the moon isnt out it explains it in tha book when edward leaves her and she is lying down on the forest floor and she was by herself if you are twilight fans you would no that????? hello but any way kaleb thanx for leaking that poster sooooo much new moon will be a great success just like the books and the first twilight went
    *team Cullen*
    p.s midnight sun i dont think that stephenie meyer is publishing it becuz i heard someone came in to”look” at her work and i tink some one is copying it sooo again thanx again for this poster

  35. its me again….im not done explaining this the positionings are great it really tells the story jacob is glaring at edward cuz he knows that edward really hurt bella and edward knows wat he did and he nver kew it would result to this nonsence bell looks lyke she is in mid thought thinking about who to choose edward jacob edward jacob edward jacob is awl tat is in ha mind edward look lyke he wants bella back but jacob is not letting him hes sorta protecting bella and so thats wat makes it that way and again tanks!!!!!!!!!!

  36. AAAAHH i love all the twilgiht books but new moon wasn't my fav, i think it had someting to do with the fact that edward is in like none of the book (GO TEAM EDWARD!!). anyway, i ove the poster it is amazing but rob looks a little weird haha. cool website twilightguy!!

  37. i cant wait for the movie thats coming out noveber 20 yes a day before but a year after the first one came out >.> and then i found out by a source that the next movie after that comes out sometime in june of next year i cant wait plus the website here is the first REAL preveiw to the movie http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E33xairqMd4 i got it from mtv and the movie awards sorry about the sound i didnt know the mic was working the dog chewed throught the first one we had

  38. It seems that the headband is like a security blanket like “EDWARD” but since she is in love with “JACOB” she takes it off because she still hears “EDWARD” so i think the headband will come back. Also the eclipes is what a new moon looks like in the day.
