Movie Monday: New Moon

Posted by Rosepixie on November 9, 2009

This is the trailer for the upcoming movie New Moon (the sequel to Twilight).

The first thing that struck me about this trailer is how creepily emotionless Bella and Edward both are.  He’s a vampire, so I guess that makes a certain amount of sense (although from everything I’m told he’s extremely full of emotion), but she’s a pseudo-normal teenage girl, so this is just creepy.

I also have to point out that creepy-Rastafarian-guy has an excellent point.  Why did he take Bella out to the middle of nowhere to tell her he was breaking up with her and then just leave her there to be eaten by someone else?  Doesn’t that seem a little unnecessary?  Cruel, even?  It certainly doesn’t seem like something her one-true-and-destined-love would do.

This trailer does a good job of making the movie seem messed up and wierd, but it also has all the high points the fans of the books will want.  Unfortunately, I’m not sure how well it’s going to sell the movie to anyone who hasn’t read the books or doesn’t care about them.  It’s just a little too confusing.
