Yes, my friends, it’s the first official poster for the New Moon movie, the second in the Twilight saga and guaranteed to make teenage girls (and, um, some non-teenage girls) squeal.
Edward is still pale and pretty, Jacob’s gotten a haircut, and Bella looks a bit lost, as usual. After some terrible fan-made posters with poor Taylor Lautner’s face spliced into a wolf’s, at least this doesn’t contain any previews of the CGI wolves to come. That could be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on how well-done the werewolves are. In the book, they’re just oversized wolves, not weird man-wolf hybrids like in Underworld, so in theory the only time they need CGI is for the transformations, which were themselves rather cringe-inducing in the books. (“The boy exploded”?)
For all the snark I can easily unload on this series, I ain’t gonna lie, I’m looking forward to it far more than I should be at my age. And even though my moviegoing buddy and I will no doubt giggle and wisecrack our way through the showing, we’ll probably love it.
