New Moon at San Diego Comic Con 2009

Ah, Comic Con. When EQ levels in resisting spoilers go down the drain. (And there are spoilers littered here and there.)

Before anything else, let me just share an in-depth, 21Qs interview with Chris Weitz by Hollywood.com.

Okay, as promised, here's our site compilation of coverages for SDCC's New Moon feature.

MTV's New Moon at SDCC Photo Gallery
MTV's Video Coverage of New Moon at SDCC begins with RPattz at the press con explaining his role as Edward. Links to the other videos are on a box on the right, or just wait until it automatically switches to the next one. :)


EW's video interview with Taylor, Ashley, Kristen, Robert and Chris Weitz. Taylor says he got to do most of his own stunts, particularly the ones with the dirt bike. We see the three gang up on Rob. Separately, Chris says he relates to Bella. (And is that an RPattz pillow next to him?)

Rob, Kristen and Taylor screen New Moon footage for the fans. A quote from this article comes from director Chris Weitz, who says:
"The last film I made [The Golden Compass] was recut by the studio, and it was quite a terrible experience," says Weitz. "This has been completely different. It's been a tremendously rejuvenating experience for me. I can remember how much fun it is to make a film."
...which I think is great, and probably means that he had more liberty with the creative process.

Again, their liveblog of the presscon.
Also, Chris Weitz confirms Thom Yorke and Bon Iver for the New Moon soundtrack and "is still hoping for Kings of Leon". We are, too.

Twilight stars face the press, with restrictions. Among those restrictions, apparently journalists were pointedly told not to ask questions about the rumors surrounding RPattz and KStew. [minamic: Thank you.]

"Twilight at Comic Con: Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Chris Weitz and more introduce New Moon" - Hero Complex's article. They describe the two scenes screened for the fans along with a transcription of the panel that included Rob, Kristen, Taylor Lautner, Ashley Greene and Director Chris Weitz. A highlight:
"Rob, your expressions in the first movie really lend themselves to comedy. Do you have plans to move in that direction?"
Robert Pattinson:I don’t know if I’m particularly funny, I don’t know. One of my legs is shorter than the other one so it makes everything look really awkward. So I can look like an idiot, but I don’t know if I can be witty.
I guess we're not the only ones who thought Rob's facial expressions were iffy. But it would be cool to see him in a rom-com, don't you think? Another highlight:
"What are you most excited for in the next films?"
AG: Excited about this whole intense fight scene we're supposed to have.
TL: I’m excited for the height of the love triangle. The sleeping bag scene!
KS: I can’t wait to get pregnant.
RP: Being involved in the cesarean, I can’t wait.
Setting aside KS and RP obviously poking fun at the tabloids, Taylor's looking forward to what has to be the climax and most favorite chapter of Eclipse: Fire and Ice. Very cool. Er... no pun intended.

Kristen Stewart: I can't wait to get pregnant! And no, peeps. That is not to be construed as more tabloid fodder.
Ben Lyons interviews Taylor, Kristen and Ashley. Kristen declares she's Team Jacob.

Taylor says: I'm asked to growl a lot.

It must've been an alien sight, but, they're still surprised at Twilighters setting up tents for the New Moon panel. And impromptu chats with some of the fans camped out.
Zap2It's view of the mini-presscon with the love trio and their liveblog of the panel.

Rob Pattinson sets off Wild Fan Frenzy at Comic Con. With a video of the small Q&A what was almost the entire cast gave before a Twilight screening. You can barely hear anything over the screaming for Rob, AND Taylor, actually, when they walked in, but there were definitely some cute moments.

For a complete video coverage (albeit with screaming fangirls in the background) check out HallH on youtube.

P.S. We're not sure how you feel about spoilers so if you want to see the two scenes they screened, clickie HERE and HERE! Hopefully they won't be taken down yet! :D

Thanks to Rome for sharing her links and info! :) And to all the international Twilighters and sites who share their coverages with those of us who can't experience it, we thank you. :)

    Is it wrong that I feel funny in my tummy when Rob shouts "Shut up!" in the EW video?

    It is?

    Ok. I'll be off to sit beside the ~sexual deviants~ now.

    @Ronald: Winner! As always. XD

    Just wanted to let you know that the link to the YouTube channel for the Hall H Coverage was mentioned in this blog post, which I'll quote...
