News Round-Up: October 26, 2009

Episode 19 of the Danag podcast will be up this week, where we cover Sam Bradley's Philippine mall tour, the New Moon soundtrack, and a teeny bit of the movie companion (no spoilers, promise!)

Also, thanks to the peeps who claimed their tickets for the blocked screening last Saturday! Our next claiming date will be this Halloween, October 31. :) Wow, it's less than a month 'til New Moon!

And yet, the biggest news recently has been Eclipse-related. Summit has unveiled the title logo for the third movie on their official Twilight twitter account.

Now this logo is the most vampiric-looking of 'em all. Very David Slade. What do you think?

Eclipse is also in the process of wrapping up and heading for post-production. Only a few scenes left to shoot, and then it's the huge promotional rollercoaster for New Moon for the cast, starting with the "Twilight Saga: New Moon" (U.S.) City Cast Tour. Added reasons to go besides the "stargazing": performances by some of the artists on the OST, and special access for the few who acquire VIP cred. (We only wish we could experience this.)

On MTV.com: The Vampire's Assistant actor says that Cirque du Freak's vamps are cooler than Twilight's. (Before you go all ballistic, though, click on the link and read the article first!) Also, Robert Pattinson's Edward Cullen was inspired by James Dean.
" 'Rebel Without a Cause' was a big influence on the first ['Twilight' film] — it influenced the hairdo and stuff," Pattinson told USA Today. "In lots of ways, it has a very similar character arc: An everyday girl brings this relatively strange individual out of his slump."

Pattinson said he doesn't understand his appeal to young women, and even as his star continues to shine brighter and brighter each day, he's still not used to all the attention. "I'm not entirely sure what it is," he said. "I'll probably realize afterward how I could have controlled it a little bit more. But I am still like a deer in headlights."
Ah, funny how he described himself. That's exactly how I thought he looked like on the cover of USA Weekend.

tMF discusses Chris Weitz and what he can bring to the Twilight franchise. And if New Moon turns out well, would you consider him to direct Breaking Dawn?

More wolf pack meaty-goodness for you: Vanity Fair has an interview with Chaske Spencer. And if you missed it (like we did), they also have interviews with Alex Meraz and Kiowa Gordon.

Will the New Moon soundtrack be as successful as the Twilight one? Hitfix.com predicts it will be number one by this week on the Billboard charts, but will soon be eclipsed (no pun intended) by MJ.

In the meantime, if you were wondering why and how songs and artists were chosen for the soundtrack, read New Moon Rising: The Billboard Cover Story on Billboard.com. It's a good read and very enlightening (and for those asking, explains why Rob doesn't have a song in it.) Some excerpts:
"Keeping it as a combination of obviously great artists -- but making it interesting for people to discover -- was a very carefully considered view," Katz says.
This love triangle forms the plot of "New Moon," and accordingly the soundtrack is moody and wistful, but with an undercurrent of strum und drang machismo. Each song is exclusive to the soundtrack, as-yet-unreleased, and most were written specifically for the movie, remixed or given new lyrics to fit the film's themes. "I was very inspired by the John Hughes movies of the '80s, which made me listen to indie rock bands that probably weren't meant for 13-year-olds: Yello, the Psychedelic Furs, New Order," says music supervisor Alexandra Patsavas, who also produced the album, as she did for the soundtrack to "Twilight." "Hopefully we can create a similar moment in time for 2009 teenagers."
New Moon Spoiler Alerts! EXTRA has a sneak peek of a cute parking lot moment for Edward and Bella. Thanks to the fans who've uploaded it up on Youtube! :)

A recent TV spot of the movie is up on ETOnline. [Is it me or are their bylines getting more cliche than Twilight's? -minamic]

We end this round-up with a link to the People's Choice Awards. The site is just asking for nominations, and Twilight can be up for five categories, so go and show our fandom some love!

    I read in today's Philippine Star that NM will have a premiere showing on Nov 19, at the SM Megamall, and they're now selling limited imported full-color tickets. How true?

    LEXAPRONE: That's possible since Megamall is indeed having a premiere on the 19th. We're not sure if it really is open to the public. Most of the premieres we heard of are by-invitation only.

    uhm, I don't like the Eclipse title. The look is kinda..overrated? Embossed with red color which surely means blood shed? it's just me siguro. ahehe

    @Jacke:

    The title treatment is really VERY David Slade, circa 30 Days of Night. It looks nice, but makes me think it just lacks the "dripping blood" effect. LOL.
