New Moon Movie Tie-In Revealed!

Jun 23rd, 2009 | By | Category: Book News, Featured Articles, Movie News

Here is the cover art for the New Moon movie tie-in paperback, courtesy of EW! We were asked not to post the pic, so be sure to check it out on their site and let us know what you think!

“Attention Team Jacob: Little, Brown has revealed their cover for the movie tie-in edition of New Moon, which features an exclusive image from the Twilight franchise’s second film. Taylor Lautner fans should certainly pick up more than a few copies (Those arms! That smoldering stare! Remember, he’s only 17!). As for Team Edward…well, at least the image proves that the moon is not, in fact, made of green cheese.”

    to all of the haters that are sayin they dont like the cover, i have one thing to say to u. you’re not a true twilight fan. how can u not like the cover. its perfect. it embodies the whole essence, tone, and feel of the book as well as the movie. its perfect. with Jacob protecting Bella, the “INCREDIBLE WOLF PACK” [said by Krys] in the background. and Edward looming in the background as the moon. if u dont like this cover, than i dont kno what to tell u other than to find something else to like becuz the twilight franchise isnt for u. whoever did this cover and the photoshoot. cudos to u, becuz it is perfect. i love it. and i cant wait for the individual pictures to come out.

    she looks like she want a piece of him- who wouldnt? but it gives off the wrong vibe.

  7. Judith Akufo says:

    They are really pushing this Bella and Jacob relationship, their using a marketing strategy to make people want to see what is going to happen, are they together or not, , but in all reality in New Moon they’re really just building a friendship, not this forbidden romance, plus that tattoo looks really fake,almost like they just stuck a sticker on his shoulder.

  8. Jo says:

    the picture makes bella and jacobs relationship look too sexual

  9. Judith Akufo says:

    I also hate that they keep using a moon as the movie symbol, a New Moon is no moon, But don’t get me wrong Taylor does look hot, I just don’t like the strategy there using to promote the movie.

  10. Jen says:

    HAHAHAH I love your comment about the Moon photos Judith! I keep thinking the same thing. Do they know what a New moon is?

  11. Jen says:

    as for the ‘sexuality’ of the photo of bella and jacob. I dont see it like that. She dosent look like she is thinking about jacob at all. she looks torn, afraid, sad, shes longing for something and jacob is filling that void, and protecting her! The edward in the background is great because of course he is mad and jelouse that he cant be near her. and the wolfpack is great. very creepy, dont know if they are good or bad while they are in the dark background.
    I give it a thumbs up XD perfect for what the book was about

  12. Jess S. says:

    Well I am a huge Edward fan so I am disappointed that there really isn’t much focus on him, however Kristen looks gorgeous (huge fan of hers) and Taylor is HOT! I love it! It’s beautiful and very New Moon, only thing I could possibly critique is the pose of Taylor and Kristen, a little to romantic of a pose, I would have preferred something that looked more best friends hugging, and consoling one another-ish. Oh well it’s Hollywood. It does look like it’s staying true to the books, and will be an amazing movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Jess S. says:

    oh and the Quilletes in the background I could live without. Although I adore the wolf pack it kinda looks like the zombies from I am Legend, they would have looked better in wolf form, however it is very mysterious :>

  14. Amanda says:

    daisa-calm down. this is a movie franchise. if people dont like it , thats fine. its not what they wanted. thats the great thing about books; you can imagine whoever you want.
    its not an AMAZING pic but its pretty good. it does kind of give the wrong idea though since bella doesnt even know she has feelings for jacob until eclipse

  15. Michele LeBlanc says:

    I actually sort of like it. At first I was like “Woah, gettin’ a little close there Jake-y?” but after looking at it again it looks pretty sweet. I could go without the Edward in the background (even though I’m team Edward all the way), it looks a little scary with him there. As for the wolf pack, I think it looks really cool. I’m actually really excited to see them in the movie! Cannot wait until November!

    ps. Anyone have any idea how they’ll present the ‘tat’ in the movie. What I mean is, will they talk about it? I mean it would be like all of a sudden he’s got this massive wolf on his arm. And it’s like… what? Any thoughts? Just comment and I’ll read.

  16. team emmett :-D says:


  17. Alexis says:

    Like the cover. I think the tattoo is stupid though.

  18. Luna Eclipse says:

    Luv it! Look at her hands! one is keeping herself close to him, the other is pushing him away.

  19. Olivia says:

    AHHHHHH I want one… NOW

  20. Kasha says:

    Just as a note for those of you who SWEAR Bella didn’t know her feelings for Jake were changing until Eclipse, and excerpt from New Moon (chapter 16):

    I remembered wishing that Jacob were my brother. I realized now that all I really wanted was a claim on him. It didn’t feel brotherly when he held me like this. It just felt nice–warm and comforting and familiar. Safe. Jacob was a safe harbor.

    I could stake a claim. I had that much within my power.

    I’d have to tell him everything, I knew that. It was the only way to be fair. I’d have to explain it right, so that he’d know I wasn’t settling, that he was much too good for me. He already knew I was broken, that part wouldn’t surprise him, but he’d need to know the extent of it. I’d even have to admit that I was crazy–explain about the voices I heard. He’d need to know
    everything before he made a decision.

    But, even as I recognized that necessity, I knew he would take me in spite of it all. He wouldn’t even pause to think it through.
    I would have to commit to this–commit as much of me as there was left, every one of the broken pieces. It was the only way to be fair to him. Would I? Could I?

    Would it be so wrong to try to make Jacob happy? Even if the love I felt for him was no more than a weak echo of what I was capable of, even if my heart was far away, wandering and grieving after my fickle Romeo, would it be so very wrong?
    Jacob stopped the truck in front of my dark house, cutting the engine so it was suddenly silent. Like so many other times, he seemed to be in tune with my thoughts now.

    He threw his other arm around me, crushing me against his cheat, binding me to him. Again, this felt nice. Almost like being a whole person again.

    I thought he would be thinking of Harry, but then he spoke, and his tone was apologetic. “Sorry. I know you don’t feel exactly the way I do, Bella. I swear I don’t mind. I’m just so glad you’re okay that I could sing–and that’s something no one wants to hear.” He laughed his throaty laugh in my ear.

    My breathing kicked up a notch, sanding the walls of my throat.

    Wouldn’t Edward, indifferent as he might be, want me to be as happy as possible under the circumstances? Wouldn’t enough friendly emotion linger for him to want that much for me?

    I thought he would. He wouldn’t begrudge me this: giving just a small bit of love he didn’t want to my friend Jacob. After all, it wasn’t the same love at all.

    Jake pressed his warm cheek against the top of my hair. If I turned my face to the side–if I pressed my lips against his bare shoulder… I knew without any doubt what would follow. It would be very easy. There would be no need for
    explanations tonight.

    But could I do it? Could I betray my absent heart to save my pathetic life? Butterflies assaulted my stomach as I thought of turning my head.

    So that cover pretty much sums up Bella’s total confusion about where to take her heart- on the one hand, she is still hoping against hope that Edward hasn’t left her forever (I think that’s why she’s facing away from Jake rather than facing into him…and she has that LOOK on her face- the “I-don’t-think-this-is-exactly-what-I-want-but-its-all-I-have” look) and on the other, she is just ready for the pain in her heart to be mended in whatever way possible.

    I do agree with everyone’s comments about the moon thing, though. LOL

  21. Samantha Cullen says:

    don’t like it 🙁 that’s because I’m Team Edward. but i have admit Jacob looks good… i guess

  22. Meg says:

    Shut up, it sucks. Real bad.

  23. mozzy says:

    two words, very hot…

  24. Amy Kathryn says:

    OK I love it, it’s great! It shows everything it should. Bella is broken and falling apart, Jacob is there as her protector and friend. In New Moon Bella says plenty of times that being close to Jacob makes her feel somewhat normal again. I don’t see anything sexual in the way he’s holding her, so for the people who think that.. put the hormones on hold for a second. You also have to keep in mind that Victoria is still after Bella and the wolf pack’s presence is needed as protectors of both Bella and all the other humans in the area. Then there’s Edward, out of sight but most definitely never out of mind! To all the Team Edward fans… you may not like Edward not being front and center… but that’s the way it has to be for New Moon. I’m sure you’ll get your “Edward fix” with Eclipse so no worries. I kind of have to agree Diasa just a bit… Team Edward/Team Jacob…. whichever you choose a TRUE fan has to appreciate the other character. NOT because of how hot they are… even though they’re looking pretty darn good…. but because they are vital to the story and this wonderful supernatural world that Stephenie has created for us.

    I think some people are taking things a bit too literal here, look a bit deeper into the story and take a look at the cover again. Like the moon, you’re right a new moon is actually no moon at all… but if that’s the only “creative liberties” they take with New Moon I am more than happy to except that!!! I think they did an awesome job.

    I am but one truly loyal fan and I love it….. so to each their own.

  25. alana paulette says:

    even tho im not team jacob i love it and theres another one there both so cool im loving how bella is keeping him close its kool and taylor/jacob hothot very cool cover love it =D

  26. Reni says:

    I don’t like it TEAM EDWARD ALL THE WAY im sorry. Well the cover looks good. But it makes Edward seem like a creep no joke. Daisa PLEASEEEEEEE dont get the “YOU;RE NOT A TRU TWILIGHT FAN” Card. It sucks. For Edward fans. The picture itself its greeat but it makes it look like Bella is a *INSERT DEGRADING NAME FOR WOMEN HERE* becuase first she’s with Edward and now shes with Jacob. Peeople who might yet know this book might go like “What?” what happened to the other guy? It looks fine. But not entirely happy.

    -It makes Edward look like a creep
    – It makes Bella’s and Jacobs relationship seem more than the friendship it was in New moon
    – Makes look like a bad romance novel you pick up at the grocery story by the tabloid stand.

    So dont say oh u guys are not true twilight fans. That’s just Bull.

  27. Rachel says:

    i am team jacob…. i dunno i just dont like it that much i mean the tattoo thing on his arm? and i dont like edward in the moon….

  28. Jasmine says:

    I’m not even a team Jacob but I LoVE it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hyperventilating right now!!!! ahhhh! The only thing i must admit i don’t like is that bella looks like she’s in too him a little 2 much.

    For all the people who Hate the cover- you’re obviously not a true twilight fan?!?!

    Jazz (team cullen!)

  29. Amy Kathryn says:

    Some of you need to get your heads out the gutter! I see nothing romantic or sexual with the way Jacob is holding Bella… look at her face… that’s pain.. not lust!!!

  30. dali says:

    im team edward but just love it… i mean twilight its the best in the planet

  31. nikki c says:

    okay… here’s what i think about the moon thing. so you guys obviously know your science: a new moon means that the sun is not reflecting light on the moon so we can’t see it… but it’s still there. when you think about it, it’s kind of like the edward situation… edward is still there (whether you want to think about it in the sense that he’s living or that he’s present in bella’s mind) but she can’t see him (he left Forks… duh) plus, the moon is just as faded as edward’s body to the point where we can kind of see it, just like whenever bella does anything stupid she gets edward’s angry voice in her head… or how in the movie he is most likely kind of projected as a hallucination.

    what do you guys think about that? just wondering….

    nikki c

  32. Robin says:

    I love it, but whats with the tatoo. It’s huge and distracting and if I’m corect I don’t think he has a tatoo in the book.

  33. my-personal-brand-of-heroin says:

    i like the overall look of it but in all the marketing they show bella and jacob’s relationship as more romantic than it really is in New Moon it isnt until eclipse than the love triangle really comes into play she was just confused in new moon she didnt love him at all – he was just comfortable, safe
    taylor is hot though and the wolf pack in the background looks good
    edward looks kinda creepy but i see nikki c ‘s point about the moon thats actually a smart way to look at it

    and seriously dont pull the you’re not a real fan card if we don’t like something we all have our opinions and mostly its BECAUSE people are such big fans that they have such strong reactions towards stuff like this – they dont want to see the film etc ruined

  34. 148 days 'till New Moon! says:

    Just an observation… she didn’t wake up one day in Eclipse and think “I love both of them”… the confusion was there BECAUSE on some elemental level, she knew she loved Jacob, too… maybe not with the same passion as she did Edward, but it was there nonetheless. If Alice hadn’t come back when she did, we might have been reading a totally different Eclipse (I, for one, am happy it is the way it is…). So to deny that she loved Jacob in New Moon is just foolish. She knew it, deep down, that she was feeling some kind of love for him- but she still wanted Edward. So Team Edward fans can try to deny it all they want, but if she didn’t love him in some way… why couldn’t she just walk away and leave Jake alone? BECAUSE… she LOVED him!!!

  35. 148 days 'till New Moon! says:

    And nikki c- I LOVE that idea! Makes me feel better about the “moon” being there (and being Edward! lol)

  36. RyRy (Ryan) says:

    ok. Not team Jacob. But i’m definalty team Taylor. He is SMOKING hott. I know the the whole sexual aspect to the way he is holding her is off from the book, but you have to keep a couple things in mind. First off, the people who designed this and who are making the movies have to try to appeal to a bigger audience then those of us who have read the series several times over. They’ve already got us hooked, now they need to worry about those people who glanced over it the first time. Second, this is the movie tie in. It’s supposed to be related to the movie, not necassarily the book. We haven’t seen the movie. We don’t know Summit decided to change. They own the rights, and if they want to amp up the chemistry between Jake and Bella, thats their right. Again, they’re trying to appeal to a broader audience. Somethings will have to change. Accept it now, it will make things easier later on.

    I love the rocks, and the shadows in the background. It sets the tone for the movie, thats it’s not al gushy love and deppresion from Bella. It shows thats there’s danger very close at hand, but concealed. The only part about the cover I don’t like is Rob’s face staring down at the moon. It was a good concept, but Rob’s expression is so distored and demented, you can’t even tell it’s him at first. It alos gives off a very creepy stalker vibe I don’t like at all. However, that may just be Rob, he always did have very odd facial expressions…overall 2 thumbs up.

    I think that this movie will be a million times better than twilight. This time around, they had more money, the actors are more comfortable, and they actually got a director who knew what he was doing.

  37. Nicole says:

    To me, all of the posters and such look more like Eclipse than New Moon.

  38. ashley lautner says:

    guys, girls,whatever its not real its a fake tattoo! after they do something they go and draw on their arms with permanent marker! trust me i’ve seen it!!! so dnt worry

  39. Jacob says:

    At first glance I didn’t like the cover, but once you read more into it, it all makes more sense. Bella always loved Jacob, it’s just that her love for Edward totally overshadows her love for Jacob but once Edward left Bella slowly was able to realize that she really did love him.

    Great cover except for the fact Edward looks like he wants to rip off some heads =\

    Oh, and what the f*ck is up with that tattoo?? That’s so stupid that they just added some inconsequential little detail for no f*cking reason. Stupid, period.
