“New Moon” dawns: The poster [cue the shrieks]

I’m not a big fan of the “Twilight” books/movies franchise, though I did rather enjoy the movie; there’s something very funny about the way Bella and Edward always look mildly ill when they gaze at each other. But hey, to each her/his own, and I think that if some magic movie time-warp ever makes me a teenager again, I’d probably love it. So, just in case any fans of the franchise are Popcorn & Prejudice readers (hey, all are welcome here, as long as you don’t pick fights in the comment section), here’s the new “New Moon” poster, sent to me by the movie’s publicists for your perusal:

So, Edward looks paler (at least he’s not glittery), Bella still looks like she’s eaten a bad shrimp, and Jacob is looking pretty good — he appears to have gone to some clever werewolf hairdresser. Anyway, this is the trio who’ll be all over the box office in late November. In other “Twilight” news, Robert Pattinson told reporters in Cannes that he is confirmed to star in the fourth film in the series, “Breaking Dawn.” He’s on his way to Italy for a final few days of “New Moon” shooting. Nice work if you can get it.
