“Twilight” sequel, “New Moon,” a DVD smash


Full disclosure: The appeal of the “Twilight” saga escapes me. But that doesn’t mean “Twilight” doesn’t have an audience. Quite the contrary. And that rabid fan base should turn out in droves to pick up copies of “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” now that it’s available on home video.

The second film adaptation in the planned five-part, vampire-and-werewolf series finds Bella (Kristen Stewart) flip-flopping between her true love, Edward (Robert Pattinson), and Jacob (Taylor Lautner), whose primary drawback seems to be that he’s a flesh-devouring werewolf. The action mopes around the Pacific Northwest until Bella jetsets to Italy with a foolproof plan to rescue Edward and reunite the star crossed lovers.

A two-disc, special edition DVD of “New Moon,” released by Summit Entertainment, delivers an audio commentary track, deleted scenes (which are popping up all over the internet), a six-part documentary that takes you behind the scenes for the “Making of” the film, band rehearsal footage with Muse, as well as music videos from Death Cab for Cutie, Anya Marina, and Mute Math.

The third “Twilight” film, “Eclipse,” hits theaters June 30.

    Got New Moon 2 days ago and watch over and over again. Especially the good parts!!!! Can’t wait for Exclipse in the theaters and want to see The Runaways but no theater here is showing it. Wish they would really put Remember Me and The Runaways out now and I would buy both. They just don’t want us to buy or it would be here. Love them…
