Official 'New Moon' Release Date Set


Following the footstep of 'Twilight', 'New Moon' will be meeting fans on the big screen in late November 2009.

"New Moon" is coming out in less than a year after "Twilight" opened big at U.S. theaters. Following report that the first sequel to the vampire drama has been tentatively set for late November 2009 release, Summit Entertainment have come out with an announcement that "New Moon" will indeed be debuted in theaters on November 20, 2009, as reported by Variety.

Of the schedule, Summit distribution topper Richie Fay commented, "Same time, same place. If it's also the same gross, we'll be very pleased. Hopefully, we'll have even better results." However, unlike "Twilight" which has to face competition from another newcomer "Bolt", "New Moon" will have to be up against serious contenders since "Sherlock Holmes", "The Three Stooges" and "Planet 51" are all slated for the particular date.

Based on Stephenie Meyer's second novel from the "Twilight" series, "New Moon" will chronicle the time Bella Swan is left devastated by the abrupt departure of Edward Cullen. Finding solace in her friendship with Jacob Black, she soon finds herself drawn into the world of the werewolves and her loyalty to the vampires tested due to the fact that werewolves are the ancestral enemies of the vampires.

Penned by "Twilight" screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg, this next Summit romance drama will be directed by "The Golden Compass" director Chris Weitz. It expects the return of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart as Cullen and Swan, while Taylor Lautner, the actor who plays Black in the first movie has been rumored to potentially be replaced.
