New Moon Trailer released

The trailer for New Moon was released this week. I semi-enjoyed the first film though it's seriousness and clichés got a bit O.T.T. at times. I'm not a fan of the first book. I LOVE the second book ... which is why I was excited to see the new trailer for this.

Hmmmm ... some issues:

- "Paper Cut!" - I can't say I've ever had a cut that bad before ... so bad that I've thrown the offending object half way across the room like Bella does. :S

- I love Robert Pattinson. I know you can act, boy. But what is it with the "pain" face these great actors put on in the blockbuster films? Orlando Bloom in LOTR & POTC = Wooden and Bad acting. Hayden Christen in Star Wars = Emo face and Terrible acting. Robert Pattinson in Twilight - God, I hope the trailer's not anything to go by. I know Edward's always trying to resist killing Bella but, Jeez!

- CGI Wolf. I'm not a big fan of CGI but we'll see how it goes.

I sincerely hope that the producers of this film just threw this footage together. It seems that way. They know everyone's going to go and see this film so it's almost as if they're not even trying to sell it.

I'll be going to see it. But I hope we get better than this.

What do you think of the new trailer?

I actually really couldn't stand the second book. The first was okay, but the second was so bad I haven't even read the third...I haven't seen the movie, either.

I'm a big fan of the series, and I think the trailer looks pretty good. I do agree, the 'tortured pained' look does kinda get to be too
Shame on me, I still havent watched the first film!
