Dakota Fanning as Jane??

I think she could do it. Fanning isn't what I pictured as Jane, but she has the potential to do it. I'll be posting a poll on the side for you guys to vote. If you don't think she would be good for the roll do you have another person you were thinking of? If so, please share in the comments

The results are in yet again, this time with a total of 167 votes.  The question was: When would you prefer New Moon the movie to come out?  The most popular vote was that people were indecisive over the matter, just as I thought you guys would be.  Here is the total poll:

Twilight DVD Midnight Release Parties?

Wow, I've never heard of a midnight release party for DvDs. Now I feel like things are going a bit too far with all the hype. Will I end up going at midnight to buy Twilight on DvD to watch deleted scenes and extended footage?? Most likely. Should I??? No, I should wait and be rational and go early morning. But who really wants to be rational?? haha anyway, for those of you that are ecstatic by this news, here is an article from mtv reguarding the DvD release.

Also for those who wish to own it on Blue-ray, it will exclusively be available only at Best Buy and Target for a LIMITED TIME UNTIL MAY 5. So be sure to act quickly on that.

Articles In USA Today on Stephenie Meyer

There were two articles in USA Today that Seth decided to share with us. Here is an update from the Official Site of Stephenie Meyer:


January 15, 2009

I really liked both of these articles that came out yesterday in the USA Today:

I love stats like those. And while I'm posting I thought I would add that tonight (Thursday) the band Mutemath (contributor to the Twilight soundtrack) is going to be on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno doing a live performance of "Spotlight." Just FYI.


That really is a big accomplish to have sold that many books in one year. Congrats Stephenie!

Update on the DvD

Yes! The official release date of the DvD for Twilight will be released on March 21st so you can either pre-order your copy now or mark your calendar and wait for it to hit the stores. You can pre-order it here on amazon and it gives you a bit more information on the DvD itself. Also Stephenie Meyer has provided us with DvD information as well:


January 10, 2009

I apologize for forgetting to post the DVD release date yesterday (I didn't realize that the Amazon page doesn't have the information yet). The Twilight DVD will be released on Saturday, March 21st. Although I'm sure most of you have already pre-ordered your 'Special Edition' DVD's by now, I thought I would post the special feature information that Summit sent in case you haven't seen it anywhere else yet:


Five extended scenes with director introductions
Audio commentary (Catherine Hardwicke, Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart)
Three music videos (Muse, Paramore, Linkin Park)SPECIAL FEATURES — DISC TWO
Five deleted scenes with director introductions
Seven-part documentary: "The Adventure Begins: The Journey from Page to Screen"
Comic-Con Phenomenon featurette
And more!

So, if you have not pre-ordered the movie already, you can click here to do so. Have a great day

— just 10 weeks left until you can watch Twilight in the comfort of your own home!


I'm probably going to wait to buy it instores because I always want to get it the day of release and sometimes when you order it online it doesn't make it to your house for a few days afterwards. So everybody mark your calendars and as Seth said, 10 more weeks!

Who's playing Jacob Black in New Moon???

Guess what everybody!! They have decided to keep Taylor Lautner on for New Moon to play Jacob Black! For those of you going huh?? there was some speculation going around that Chris Weitz was looking for other people to play our favorite Werewolf. They only were doing this simply because of Taylor's size. Some people were pushing for Michael Copon to play Jake:

(Taylor lautner left, Michael Copon right)

Honestly if this guy had been selected I would feel like part of the character was lost in the movie because the difference between Taylor and Michael is so dramatically different it doesn't even seem like it could be just an older version of Taylor. I'm glad they're keeping Taylor on and hope they do a good job with his size in the movie haha.

Here is the update on the Official Site of Stephenie Meyer reguarding Taylor.


January 7, 2009

Good news about New Moon from director Chris Weitz:

I'm very happy to announce that Taylor Lautner will be playing Jacob Black in New Moon and that he's doing so with the enthusiastic support of Summit Entertainment, the producers, and Stephenie Meyer.

The characters in Stephenie's books go through extraordinary changes of circumstance and also appearance; so it is not surprising that there has been speculation about whether the same actor would portray a character who changes in so many surprising ways throughout the series. But it was my first instinct that Taylor was, is, and should be Jacob, and that the books would be best served by the actor who is emotionally right for the part. I think that fans of Twilight the book and the movie will be surprised by the Jacob Black that Taylor will bring to the screen in New Moon; and I'm looking forward to working with him and the rest of the cast in realizing the film.
very best
Chris Weitz

I'd just like to add that I was very much a part of this decision. My first priority was always what was best for New Moon—what was going to give us the best possible movie. I'm truly thrilled that Taylor was the one who proved to the director, to Summit, and to me that he is the best possible Jacob we could have. And I'm very much looking forward to seeing what he's going to bring to Jacob's character this year.

- Steph


I hope that they don't rush the film too badly. I know that they want to get it out as fast as possible for the fans and also get their pay-day, but would it hurt them to take a bit more time for it and make it a bit better? We'll have to find out how they do. New Moon is due out November 20 in the US later this year.
