NEW MOON Movie Tie-In Book Cover Revealed!

EW got a look at the new cover artwork for the upcoming re-release of the novel NEW MOON by Stephenie Meyer meant to (of course) tie-in with the new movie THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON. Have a peek below:


No official date on when this new version will hit book stores, but I'd imagine it'd be in November just in time for the new film.

THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Dakota Fanning, Chaske Spencer, Bronson Pelletier, Alex Meraz, Kiowa Gordon, Tyson Houseman, Nikki Reed, Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Jackson Rathbone, Edi Gathegi, Rachelle Lefevre, Ashley Greene, Billy Burke, Cam Cigandet, Kellan Lutz & Anna Kendrick. Chris Weitz directs.

THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON - Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) is devastated by the abrupt departure of her vampire love, Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) but her spirit is rekindled by her growing friendship with the irresistible Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner). Suddenly she finds herself drawn into the world of the werewolves, ancestral enemies of the vampires, and finds her loyalties tested. (In theaters November 20, 2009)

Del Toro's THE STRAIN Website Now Live!

If you recall, we posted a video message from filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro a few weeks back where he talked about his upcoming vampire trilogy THE STRAIN. Now, the official website for the novel has been launched over at: http://www.thestraintrilogy.com.

Below you'll find the book cover & synopsis to THE STRAIN, which hits store shelves on June 2nd. Del Toro will also be appearing at the upcoming New York Fangoria Weekend Of Horrors convention to promote the book! (Details at www.fangocon.com!)



They have always been here. Vampires. In secret and in darkness. Waiting. Now their time has come.

In one week, Manhattan will be gone. In one month, the country.

In two months—the world.

A Boeing 777 arrives at JFK and is on its way across the tarmac, when it suddenly stops dead. All window shades are pulled down. All lights are out. All communication channels have gone quiet. Crews on the ground are lost for answers, but an alert goes out to the CDC. Dr. Eph Goodweather, head of their Canary project, a rapid-response team that investigates biological threats, gets the call and boards the plane. What he finds makes his blood run cold.

In a pawnshop in Spanish Harlem, a former professor and survivor of the Holocaust named Abraham Setrakian knows something is happening. And he knows the time has come, that a war is brewing . . .

So begins a battle of mammoth proportions as the vampiric virus that has infected New York begins to spill out into the streets. Eph, who is joined by Setrakian and a motley crew of fighters, must now find a way to stop the contagion and save his city—a city that includes his wife and son—before it is too late.

Guillermo Del Toro Talks THE STRAIN TRILOGY!

Back in September of 2008, filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro announced that he'd be launching a trilogy of books titled THE STRAIN, a series with his take on vampires. Back then, he said, ""The idea is epic in scope. The trilogy advances in unexpected ways and each book contains unique and surprising revelations about the history, physiology and lore of the vampiric race, tracing its roots all the way back to its Old Testament origins."

Now with a June 2nd release date locked for the first book, (co-written by Chuck Hogan) Del Toro has posted the following video about THE STRAIN TRILOGY! Check it out!
