Release date set for Twilight sequel

A scene from TwilightSummit Entertainment has set a release date for the Twilight sequel. New Moon, based on the second book of the series by Stephenie Meyer, will open on November 20, 2009 — one year after the debut of the first movie. Twilight has earned over $150 million to date. Summit also announced that Chris Weitz, who directed The Golden Compass, will step in as director. The following description for New Moon has been released: 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. Suddenly, she finds herself drawn into the world of the werewolves, ancestral enemies of the vampires, and finds her loyalties tested.

    Oh great! Another terrible movie starring a bunch of young crackheads and dopers.

    I think I will skip it.

    Well let’s see if Chris Weitz can stick to the $37 million budget…. That is, after all, one of the reasons why they let the other director go…because she wanted to put more money into it than the first one (being $37 million). That and the fact that she wanted to have more time to work on it and not just throw anything out there for Nov. 2009. We’ll just have to see in a year!

    umm…I just want to tell Ray Ray…that he should watch what he says because unless you have read the books you shouldnt be talking.. I will amit that it was a little cheesy at times but the books are great and he should be happy that finally there are books for teenagers to relate to. and still let their creativity and imagination work. go ahead and skip it because obviously there are alot more people that appreciate the story and effort of everyone involved

    The first movie does not do the book justice at all…I think they need to spend more money and more time on the second…the books are amazing but the movie thus far has been a dissapointment. And hey guys why all the hateing..

    I didn’t think that I would like the movie or the books, but I went with a friend to the movie and had to read the books, and now I’ve read them all, even what she has on Midnight Sun, and I love them so much 🙂 I agree that the movie doesn’t do the book justice, but I do still like it.
