The Official New New Moon Trailer, Plus Fan Reaction
08.18.09 by REELZ
This past weekend, the New Moon trailer hit the big screen before showings of Bandslam, another Summit production. The trailer also made a brief appearance on YouTube, thanks to a brazen moviegoer armed with a shaky hand-held camera. We're happy to announce that we now have a high-quality version direct from Summit.
So what do Twilight Saga fans think of this latest trailer? Robin at BellaAndEdward.com had this to say: "The good news? I definitely think it looks like New Moon is going to be better than Twilight, even though it is my least favorite book of the series. It comes across as being much richer visually. It also seems as though they really tried to stick to the books as much as they could."
But the Taylor Lautner narration didn't play as well. "I know they are pushing Taylor to the forefront so much because he is a big part of New Moon," says Kim at cullenboysanonymous.com, "but I would have rather just had a traditional trailer. Plus to be honest, New Moon to me is all about Edward. Why Edward left Bella, what was he thinking, what did he do while he was gone, etc." Michelle at BellaAndEdward.com also wasn't a fan of the interview approach: "As for the narration, I thought it distracted from the feel of the trailer. I can't even consider it a real 'trailer' because it has those little interview snippets with Taylor every 10 seconds."
In total, we posed five questions to some of our favorite Twilight fansites, including "What 'scene' were you happiest to see?" and "Was there anything that made you leery about the adaptation?" How did they respond? See The Latest New Moon Trailer: What the Fansites Really Think.
