A common refrain from the actors promoting The Twilight Saga: New Moon has been that men will like this film better than the last one. “I think guys won’t mind if their girlfriends drag them to a Twilight film this time because there is a very masculine side to this film. It brings a whole different level of excitement. The vampires are older and more suave and mature. The shapeshifters are not. We are young, aggressive and have tons of testosterone and nudity. It will make for a more balanced date night movie selection,” Alex Meraz (aka werewolf Paul) insisted to EW at the Los Angeles premiere. “And even if they don’t want to see it, if they want to see their girlfriends, they better go because that’s where their girls will be. And I feel like we are buttering up their girls with our abs so they could get lucky.”
