News Round-Up: February 23, 2010

UPDATE 2 (Feb 24): Pioneer finally sent us the special features list for the New Moon DVD but we have been asked to wait for their official press release before posting. However, we can tell you that we are very happy about what's included, and we feel that this local release is a very good buy if you can't afford a Region 1. We hope that those who got "burned" by the Twilight DVD fiasco will reconsider buying NM locally, since this is a different manufacturer/distributor. [CdL]

UPDATE: It's also been confirmed that Kristen and Taylor will be presenters at the Oscars, so be sure to catch the local telecast. We'll post schedules for that soon. [CdL]

Before anything else, let's discuss local Twi-news.

We asked Pioneer and they informed us that the DVD of New Moon is going to be released on March 20. The DVD will have bonus features but we have no specific details as of yet or if there are going to be promos attached to the release. Don't worry. We'll post them up once we do get them!

Now, as for the Eclipse trailer being attached to Remember Me (which, by the way, will be out March 12! Saw a poster of it up on Rockwell), it might not be possible since the distributors don't have the material yet. We're sure to get a glimpse of it online when it's out in the U.S. though, so no biggie? (And I'm sure the trailer will only be a bonus. After all, you'll be there to watch the gorgeousness that is RPattz, right? Hehe.)

Congratulations to Kristen Stewart for winning both the Orange Rising Star Award at the BAFTAs and Elle's Woman of the Year!

Twilight co-stars who attended the BAFTAs included Jamie Campbell-Bower, Anna Kendrick, and Robert Pattinson. Anna was nominated for supporting actress for Up in the Air. RPattz presented the BAFTA for Original Screenplay. Videos can be seen on the Twilight Examiner.

Back in the U.S., fellow Twilight cast Taylor Lautner is nominated for a Young Artist award.

We're not sure if this is the norm for all NM DVD releases but Robert Pattinson Life has screencaps of the Portuguese menus. If you're curious, you can check them out here and here.

By the way, Sam Bradley's The Manila Diaries is out. You'll need to purchase it here for $10 to view. :)

    Still surprised that Bonnie Wright is dating JCB! Heheh! Cute pics of them at the BAFTAs, though. Good choice, JCB! ;)

    Hi folks! Just to share, Velvet (SkyCable Channel 53) will be airing the Oscars live on March 8, 2010 (Monday). It'll begin with red carpet pre-shows at 6:30 A.M. while the award show proper will start at 9:00 A.M. No word on the primetime replay schedules yet. Hope this helps! :)

    I just hope that the New Moon DVD (Philippine version) is not as crap as the Twilight 2-Disc Special Edition that I reserved and bought last year. No longer interested to buy here. I already pre-ordered from Borders. Its a bit expensive but the quality is worth it!

    I wish Pioneer would hurry up with the press release as well because I'm this close to pre-ordering from Borders also...

    I checked the coming soon list at Rockwell's Web site. It says release date of Remember Me is MARCH 10!!! Please confirm. The sooner, the better because I've been accidentally reading movie spoilers already.

    New to your blog, btw. Good job! Thanks for the RM and NM DVD info. =)
