New Moon Makes Top Ten Soundtracks List for 2009from film.com:
Any year that features films from music-oriented directors Wes Anderson and Quentin Tarantino is going to be a good year for soundtracks. Many of the films’ soundtracks this year were highly anticipated, with indie rock star power attached early on to films like The Twilight Saga: New Moon (Thom Yorke, Grizzly Bear, Bon Iver) and Where the Wild Things Are (Karen O. of Yeah Yeah Yeahs), but not all delivered on that promise when the visuals were married in the final product.
The commonality of most of the soundtracks on this list is nostalgia, whether it be for old cinema classics or for our own childhood. It’s a tricky business, tickling that ache for the past, but for the films below business is mostly good. (As an added bonus, several of the entries below have “reassembled” playlists incorporating all the songs used in the film — enjoy!)
10. The Twilight Saga: New Moon
New Moon makes this list almost purely because of the inclusion of new material from the likes of Grizzly Bear (“Slow Life”), Thom Yorke (“Hearing Damage”), and pairing Bon Iver with St. Vincent (“Roslyn”). Whether it’s the best music for Taylor Lautner to remove his shirt to is probably up for debate.
Twitter Alert! David Slade “Planning New Year’s Gift”
A few days ago, David Slate tweeted another cryptic tweet telling fans that he was “planning a New Year’s gift.” This tweet came right on the heels of a couple of tweets responding to fan inquiries about when the first Eclipse trailer would be out. Twilight Saga fans around the world are speculating on what this gift could be – whether it’s one his own personal tweets, as he is known to use his Twitter account for a lot of personal things; or if it’s aimed at Twilight fans.
Where to See the “Twilight”, “New Moon”, and “Eclipse” Stars in 2010from examiner.com:
The Twilight cast is positively gigantic at this point. With The Twilight Saga: New Moon and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse complete, the list of cast members has grown significantly. There are some who play, well, bigger roles in the film series (i.e., Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner), but even with a cast this formidable, each and every actor in the series holds a special place in the hearts of Twilight fans who support their careers even outside of the series.
There are a few whose 2010 adventures have been well elucidated and explored. For instance, the fact that they’ll be showing in the summer’s The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is pretty much a given.
Even still, a comprehensive round-up of where you’ll see the Twilight cast in 2010 couldn’t hurt, now could it? This’ll be continually updated as more information comes in, by the way.

A very talented person has a “New Moon” trailer spoof on YouTube with footage from Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” that is just awesome. It has over two million hits and I don’t know how it took me so long to find out about it. If you haven’t already seen it, you can check it out here!
Kudos to the New Moon team for putting together a very good soundtrack! In fact, I was listening to it this morning before I even saw the article. With the exception of a couple of songs, I love it!
