A “New Moon” poll: Are you going?

This morning I heard from the nice people at Fandango, who told me that “New Moon” recently became their biggest advance seller ever, moving more early tickets than “Star Wars, Episode III: Revenge of the Sith,” “The Dark Knight,” or any “Harry Potter” movie. So, who’s buying all these tickets? Do teenage girls really have that much money? How many closeted Twilight Moms are out there? Let’s take a poll:

Are you going to “New Moon” on opening weekend?(polls)

Feel free to add comments explaining your choice. Me, I’m going to the premiere screening tonight, because it’s my job. (Would I go if it wasn’t my job? Umm . .. probably not. Certainly not opening weekend, anyway.) If you’re coming, look for me; I’ll be the one without a “Team Jacob” or “Team Edward” T-shirt, and an amused yet vaguely frightened expression, kind of like the one Bella gets when she’s hanging out with the Cullens. I’m expecting a sort of “Rocky Horror”-like atmosphere, with a lot of teens yelling “Bite me!” at the screen. Wish me luck.
