Twilight Saga: New Moon
Starring: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson & Taylor Lautner

If ‘Twilight’ was about finding true love then New Moon is about losing it. The real question is which team is Bella on: Team Edward or Team Jacob? Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner light the darkness in this supernaturally good take on Stephenie Meyer’s fantasy novel.

This next instalment of The Twilight Saga sees Bella Swan devastated by the abrupt departure of her vampire love, Edward Cullen, but her spirit is rekindled by her growing friendship with Jacob Black. Suddenly she finds herself drawn into the world of werewolves, the ancestral enemies of the vampires, and finds her loyalties tested.

With more of the passion, action and suspense that made Twilight a smash hit, The Twilight Saga: New Moon is a spellbinding follow-up to the international box office phenomenon.
