Know why? Know why?
Because John Stewart from the Daily Show and Stephen Colbert from the Colbert Report both mentioned it. It was brief - but it was a definite mention.
John said he was going to see it at Christmas.
And Stephen called it a "sexy vampire flick" and got all jealous of John Stewart.
In other news... It looks like New Moon has its director:
Hmm. Well, it's a man.
I hope he's good with romance.
This guy is Chris Weitz, most known for directing American Pie, About a Boy, and The Golden Compass. The only one of those I saw was The Golden Compass. And I thought it was pretty good, though I hadn't read the books. The special effects were definitely amazing and it was visually gorgeous.
This could be a good thing...
Whatever. I just hope New Moon is awe-inspiring. That's all I can hope for right now, no specifics. It just has to be good. =)
