The book cover for the movie tie-in version of "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" is up and it looks awesome. Team Jacob is definitely pulling ahead on this cover--Edward is just the man on the moon here. I can't quite make out who the four smaller figures are behind them, but I'm guessing it's a few of the wolf pack and a female (Emily? Leah?).
There is also the "New Moon" 2010 calendar, which looks like it will stand up on your desk. A perfect distraction from your computer monitor. According to FPI it will be available on July 30 (although Amazon currently shows no availability date). Jacob is definitely in the forefront, while Edward seems like he's ready to pounce or run.
This is the poster included in the calendar. Finally, we see the Cullens! Doesn't everyone look like they've had an excellent makeover? Rosalie and Esme's hairstyles are a little more up-to-date, and Alice's has been tamed down a little. Carlisle's is a little Pat Riley-ish, but his makeup is a huge improvement from "Twilight." Emmett appears even bigger. Love the look of determination on Edward's face. Notice how Jasper is turned away from the rest of the Cullens.
So this is purely gratuitous for you Robert Pattinson/Edward Cullen/Team Edward Twipeeps. (Might I suggest the lobster bib again?)
Now, I know a lot of Twifans out there who go on "Twilight"-inspired vacations. (Need to plan one? Check out my post on Vampire Tourism.) But hiking the Hoh just to feel like Bella Swan seems a little strange, even to me. The rainforest is mesmerizing and beautiful, though, and maybe some of the Bella-wannabees will go all nature-girl and be inspired to do more hiking and camping, just because they like it. This would benefit our underfunded state and national parks.
Thanks to my friend Andy for the heads-up on this report. Check out his piece on "Twilight" hiking here.
Kristen seems thrilled and honored to be playing Jett: "I'm just listening to her music all the time. I'm trying to just make myself aware of the time period and what she was going through. It's one of the most immense responsibilities to play a real person. Her story's important. It's an incredibly triumphant feminist story really. She's the first woman to ever start her own record label. So many people know her as just being like one of the coolest people to ever live. That in itself is one of the most intimidating things that I've ever had to confront but she's so cool too."
The UK's Mail Online has the whole article here.
Kristen is rockin' those 1970's high-waisted flared pants, yeah!

Buffy is no Bella--she's not a damsel in distress or a social misfit, and she is definitely not intimidated by immortal bloodsucker types. She also isn't impressed by Edward's stalkeriffic ways; he gets a rather different reaction when she catches him in her bedroom.
Check it out and see what's at stake. (Groan.)

Happy 108th Birthday, Edward Cullen!
Born Edward Anthony Masen on June 20, 1901, in Chicago, Illinois,
he was turned into a vampire by Carlisle Cullen in 1918,
saving him from an untimely death by Spanish Influenza.
Now he's married to fellow vegetarian vampire Bella Swan,
and they are the parents of Renesmee, a half-human,
half-vampire, fast-growing child who is destined to be the
mate of Jacob Black, a shape-shifting werewolf of Quileute ancestry.
