Twilight's New Moon Get's an Official Logo Treatment
News about the upcoming sequel to last year's Twilight continues to trickle in as the studio creeps towards a November 2009 release. Today, we have a look at the official title and logo treatment for the follow up, thanks to MTV. Leveraging the $360+ million draw from the original movie and ambitions for tween domination - it is, after all, "one of the most anticipated movies… a worldwide phenomenon" - New Moon gets a commercial-savvy prefix: The Twilight Saga's New Moon. Author Stephanie Meyer often used "Twilight Series" to describe the four-book series, but "saga" sounds so much more important, right?
Of course, I'm not the biggest fan of the original movie, so I can't exactly say my breath is baited in anticipation of the saga's next installment. To this day, it's the only movie in which a fellow critic has walked out. The incessant hocking of everything that is Twilight-related doesn't exactly have me reaching for my wallet, either. I love it that Twilight-director Catherine Hardwicke is releasing her "Director's Notebook" only after the "movie made enough money." I imagine it'll be absent of the juicier detailing of some of her reported strife on set, since that wouldn't sell as well. Too bad, I might've actually bought it if it did.
I will, however, reserve some judgment on The Twilight Saga's New Moon since director Chris Weitz (of About a Boy and The Golden Compass) has since taken over this sequel. Hopefully no one is excited?
