New Moon Mondays - Stretching Out


New Moon Mondays Stretch Out
With New Moon already in theatres and Eclipse more than 6 months away I've decided to broaden the focus of New Moon Mondays to including anything that lands of the fantastical film radar. Of course if there is pressing vampire and Twilight news I'll be sure to included it! Like the fact that Taylor Lautner will be hosting Saturday Night Live this Saturday December 12, 2009. Too bad they didn't pair his hosting with Muse performing which will be next week (Dec 19/09) when James Franco hosts.

Twilight Soundtrack Receives Grammy Nomination
The soundtrack to Twilight has received a nomination for Best Compilation Soundtrack Album For Motion Picture, Television Or Other Visual Media for the Grammy's. Fellow nominee's include Cadillac Records, Inglourious Basterds, Slumdog Millionnaire and "True Blood". Feels like the Twilight soundtrack came out ages ago but the eligibility year for the Grammy's is October 1, 2008 through August 31, 2009. The ceremony will be held on Sunday January 31, 2010 and will air live on CBS from 8PM.

New Moon Third Week Still Topping Canadian Charts
The Twilight Saga: New Moon still is in the #1 box office spot here in Canada during it's third weekend (Dec 4 - 6, 2009) although it slipped to #2 in North America. Current worldwide gross is $498 million. Wow, that's a lot of money. Keeping an eye on reactions it's down one percentage sitting at 29% on Rotten Tomatoes, up 0.1 to 4.6 on IMDb, and holding at 44 on Metacritic (with a 4.1 user rating). Looks like the opinions are pretty set from here on out.

Beastly Poster - More than Meets the Eye
One of these things is not like the other. One of the things I love about heading to the theatre so often is catching a glimpse at new posters. Check top and bottom of the post for the cool change as you walk by Beastly poster. Information has been pretty quiet about the upcoming film Beastly but this poster has a lot to say. Can you imagine sitting for a portrait with those different profiles? A photographers nightmare! Beastly hits the theatres July 30, 2010.
