Last week while in Nova Scotia I saw the trailer for The Twilight Saga: New Moon up on the big screen in the theatre, as it played in front of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Now November doesn't seem that far away!
Last week was Comic Con 2009 and if you missed the New Moon panel in Hall H it is available online at You Tube in 7 parts. The panel included director Chris Weisz along with cast members Robert Pattinson (Edward), Taylor Lautner (Jacob), Kristen Stewart (Bella) and Ashley Greene (Alice). The first two parts include a lot of screaming and a few obstucted moments but that does calm down. Both Chris Weisz and Kristen Stewart provide great insights into the upcoming film and the process. Pretty spoiler free as well! Since it took me ages of clicking around to find all the parts I've lined them up for easy viewing:

It's been announced that Daybreakers has been selected as a part of the Midnight Madness program for TIFF'09 which means it will be in Toronto in September 2009, way before the 2010 release date. Daybreakers stars Ethan Hawke and Willem Dafoe in a new spin in the vampire genre. Chan-wook Park's Thirst / Bakjwi is officially an upcoming 2009 release with theatrical set for August 7th, 2009 here in Toronto - I'm SO excited, I thought this one would only get to us via festival but I'm more than happy to plop down in a regular theatre to get my fill of vampire/priest/medical experiment-gone-wrong ness. Need to jog your memory on the film? Check out the trailers for Thirst over at Twitch.
