The teaser one-sheet for The Twilight Saga: New Moon, in theaters Nov. 20, has been released confirming what we long suspected — both Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Jacob (Taylor Lautner) are hotter with shorter hair. At first glance, I thought this poster belonged to Lautner: The clenched fist and jaw, the bicep, the eye. (And again, the hair.) But then I looked closer at Pattinson,
smiled that I actually get paid for this, and noted the purposeful peek of manly chest hair. Suddenly, I remembered that New Moon is a battle between a boy and a man — not just a wolf and a vampire — for Bella’s affections. (You’ll need to find an enlarged image to fully appreciate what I’m extracting from the photo. Of chest hair. Wait, this is what I get paid for?)
My other thoughts: That expressive look on Kristen Stewart’s face allows me to hope that the acting in the sequel will be much improved. The coloring of the background reminds me of fan-made New Moon posters. (Coincidence?) I’m liking that this film already feels darker and more atmospheric than the first.
