New Moon Mondays: 2010 Calendar, Red Riding Hood and 30+ Days of Night


New Moon Calendar
I normally don't write about 'stuff' but I couldn't resist taking a few snapshots of the 2010 New Moon Calendar when I was at my local bookstore. There are some great pictures for it, but I have to ask: Why isn't Bella on the front? Even if she is on 5 of the 12 month pics... the cover is all Cullens, all the time!

2 pics included because flash blotched a few the first time!

Catherine Hardwicke to direct The Girl with the Red Riding Hood
Even though Catherine Hardwicke isn't at the helm of New Moon she does have an upcoming project with werewolves involved, based on Little Red Riding Hood. An IMDb Page has been set up but currently info on it is scarce but it appears we have until 2012 for this one with many other projects of Catherine Hardwicke's to look forward to until then including Hamlet starring Emile Hirsch and Maximum Ride based on the James Patterson series.

30 Days of Night sequel
Not too much more info other that this project is in development. The films IMDb page is so scarce that it doesn't even have a title but is rather noted as Untitled 30 Days of Night Sequel. Should we help them along? 31 Days of Night? 30 Days of Sun? 30 Days of Day? The Day After the Day it Ended? Arctic Blood? Possibilities are endless! The original 30 Days of Night was directed by David Slade, the director of the third Twilight instalment: Eclipse to be released June 30, 2010.

I Want Some More: Vampathon
The Vampathon continues and the latest film reviewed was the classic Dracula from 1931, starring Bela Lugosi and directed by Tod Browning. This is one of my all time favourite vampire films as the Dracula character is a great combination of bizarre as well as charming, and the tone of the film has a great classic haunting quality. Next up in the Vampathon is the Canadian quirkly vampire film Blood & Donuts which will be reviewed this Wednesday September 9, 2009.

I know I'll get dragged along to see New Moon, but I was very unimpressed with Twilight, but beyond adding some talented new cast memebers I don't think they've upgraded much (except maybe the budget).

I read somewhere, can't remember where, that the 30 Days of Night sequel will feature an all new cast, and follow Melissa George's character Stella. Granted it's all speculation at this point.

Looking forward to the review of Blood & Donuts!

Wow, that calendar is amazing. I'm so glad that Twilight is really inspiring the movie industry to do more paranormal stories, just like Supernatural took TV by storm (after a slow start).

It will be interesting to see peoples reactions to New Moon in comparison to Twilight, but to be honest I think it's pretty much the same target market for both. And with Twilight there was a pretty big divide between those who enjoyed it and those who didn't.

I heard some speculation on continuing with Stella in the 30 Days of Night sequel, but it was vague enough that I didn't include it. Curious to hear more on that one.

The calender does look pretty good eh Suzie? If I still had a yellow kitchen I would totally buy it. There certainly is a huge spike in paranormal theme tv, films and books - which is awesome!

I actually picked up that calendar a few weeks ago. It had *just* been added to the shelf and so they had a few copies. It's nicely tucked away in a corner waiting to be ripped open. Yes, hard to believe but I'm holding off until I can actually use it before opening!

Wow, talk about restraint Marina! I'm impressed!
