Twilight Author Stephenie Meyer Visits Oprah

Stephenie MeyerTo a different age group, this interview could be bigger than the one with Sarah Palin.

In just a few days from now, Twilight author will be sitting on Oprah Winfrey’s stage. The chat, which comes just two weeks before New Moon finally debuts, will be the only one the writer grants during this promotional tour.

Meyer recently explained the reasoning behind her solo press interview on her blog. “You know I’ve been doing the hermit thing this last year, in so far as media is concerned, and I’m not changing that now, but I am making an exception. I’m doing this for a good reason: I am so pleased and amazed and thrilled with what Chris Weitz has done with New Moon that I want to talk about it, and to show my support for him. And since I’m only doing one interview, better make it big,” she wrote.

Look for Stephenie on The Oprah Winfrey Show this Friday, Nov. 13th.

New Moon Director Wants to Make You Cry

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson in New MoonDirector of The Twilight Saga: New Moon, Chris Weitz, wants to make fans of the series cry their tear ducts out.

“We’ve tried our best to deliver on the romantic scenes in the film, and I would like to be able to produce more tears than any movie before, if possible. If we could only weigh them with some kind of cubic tear measure!”

Weitz also spoke out about the lack of privacy there is with shooting the film, thanks to Twitter:

“To be honest, even making the movie is under a tremendous amount of scrutiny now, so that when the cast went back to Vancouver there were cameras everywhere. Everyone knows where every set is going to be. It goes with the Internet and all the information is out there all the time, and whenever one of them is spotted it’s immediately Twittered.”

Make sure you bring your tissue box when the film hits theaters November 20th.

Quote of the Day: Taylor Lautner on Shirtlessness

Taylor Lautner, shirtless in the New Moon poster

“I worked hard to get in shape for this role. My motivation was the movie and the fans, but I don’t want to become known as just a body. If I had to choose, I would never take my shirt off again in a movie, but I guess that’s not very realistic. I certainly won’t be asking to do it, though.”

- New Moon hunk Taylor Lautner on going topless. I hope that he seriously reconsiders that bit about not wanting to take his shirt off again for a film!

(Make sure to check out other notable quotes.)

Volturi Profiled in New Moon Pics

New Moon

In these photos released by Summit Entertainment, we’re finally getting a chance to see those other vampires: the Volturi of Volterra.

It probably would have been hard to look away from Taylor Lautner’s new physique, it it wasn’t for those piercing red eyes. Thanks to specially-crafted eyewear, you too could look as intimidating as the normally-angelic (Jane).

“They’re all hand-painted, specially manufactured contacts,” director Chris Weitz told People. “They’re opaque red, almost like preying mantis eyes. You can’t really see into them. There’s something terribly off-putting about it.” (Ya think?)

Jacob Black the Star of New Moon Trailer

Based on the latest box office results, you were probably one of the many who didn’t watch Bandslam this weekend. That means you most likely missed out on the latest New Moon trailer.

New Moon is a lot more complicated than Twilight was,” narrates. “As time goes on, the heat starts building. New Moon is gonna be stepped up a whole other notch. There’s more action in this one, especially with the werewolves involved. I think the fans are really going to be happy.”
