New Moon Monday: Post Halloween Pre New Moon

New Moon Re-Read Countdown
Getting hyped for New Moon? Of course you are! Re-reading the book? I bet you might be? Don't want to go at it alone? You don't have to! The great folks over at are having a New Moon Re-Read Countdown where they read & post a chapter a day until the release of the film on November 20, 2009. Today the chapter in question is Chapter 7 so even if you just started re-reading that isn't too far along to catch up and play along! I know I will.

New Moon 15 City Tour
Between November 6 - 19, 2009 there is a 15 city tour over the US starting in LA and ending in Times Square, New York. Cast members at the events are subject to availability and several of the events will have New Moon Soundtrack artists performing at the events. Thanks to Geeks of Doom for the heads up!

Eclipse Shooting Done & Xavier Samuel as Riley
Although I'm trying to stay focused on New Moon as it's just over 2 weeks again, it's hard to not heard, share & be excited about Eclipse new. Last week we got to see the Eclipse title card, and now that shooting for Eclipse is official done, David Slade treated the Twitter folk to an image of Xavier Samuel (The Loved Ones, September, Newcastle) as Riley in Eclipse. Looking good! I impressed that the look and feel are different than Twilight, but still fit in really well with the world.

I Want Some More: Vampathon
The Vampathon: Vampire Film Marathon continues with reviewing vampire films and last week I went double bill style with Anne Rice book adaptations of Interview with the Vampire and Queen of the Damned. Amazing how they don't feel like the two films are related at all. If you don't feel like reading you can always watch the vlog when I talk about them along with other recent viewings including Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant. Next vampire film for review is George A. Romero's Martin. I've very curious to what the king of zombies does with vamps. Review will be up Wednesday October 4, 2009.

Twilight Halloween Costume Contest
Did you dress up for Halloween? And if so, was it Twilight related? If yes why not enter the His Golden Eyes Costume Contest? And because I if you talk the talk... walk the walk. I went as Victoria. Here are some pics!

Shannon, those photos rock! I love that you went as Victoria for Halloween and your hair and costume?! Perfect!

New Moon is almost here, isn't it? I can't believe it. Guess I'll be seeing that one alone. R will be away! That's OK, I might like it on my own.

Totally awesome! You rocked it as Victoria. I love how even your Halloween costume is movie-inspired!
