Brand New Photo Stills From New Moon

Buzz Battle: Are Spoilers Ruining New Moon?

With exactly one month to go until the much-anticipated (to say the very least) premiere of New Moon, the folks at Summit are still getting the Twi-hards' tongues wagging with a new clip aired last night and this latest batch of stills from the movie. But has too much of the movie been revealed — both for those who never read the book and for those who did but still want to be surprised by the visual interpretation?

In today's Buzz Battle, editors S and B square off about whether or not the spoilers are already ruining the yet-to-be released movie.

  • Editor B: For my opening remarks, I will admit that I'm enjoying all the new footage. I'm always on the hunt for a hot new RPattz photo for my desktop background, and as someone who didn't know much about the Twilight saga this time last year, I've become a full-fledged fan. But like any TV or movie spoilers, the fun of the anticipation is never worth it if expectations are too high. I don't want to walk out of the theater saying, "Man, that was a boring and anticlimactic 2 hours, but the 12 months of hype leading up to it sure was exciting."
  • To see Editor S's retort and additional arguments, plus more photos just

    .

  • Editor S: I read the book New Moon over a year ago, so nothing can be spoiled for me. In fact, I'm kind of inspired to re-read the book since I don't remember everything I'm seeing in these new photos. My point is that the audience of New Moon will largely be made up of readers who are looking for a loyal scene-by-scene mirror of the book, so the clips are exciting reminders of what happened in those pages. And if you haven't read the book? A) It's not a spoiler if it's in the book, and B) There are still 30 days to read up.
  • Editor B: Back at Comic-Con, I felt like it was a very special privilege to see the shirtless Edward scene in all its glory, and I totally didn't expect that part to make it to the movie's preview. But there it was: the climax of the book played out in the trailer. I understand that the folks at Summit are catering to pre-ordained fans of the series, but couldn't they have kept the most intense scene of the movie a secret for the select few who don't know exactly what's going to happen? Part of the fun of the books is not knowing how or why Edward and Bella are reunited.
  • Editor S: In this age of the Internet and blogging, there's no way to avoid anything that gets leaked. That said, for those who haven't read the books, it's a brilliant ploy to show Robert Pattinson shirtless. I'll say it again: Robert. Pattinson. Shirtless.
  • Editor B closing argument: While I don't deny that the spoilers are helping to generate excitement and buzz, I fear that I'm being set up for disappointment. I just hope that New Moon has some quality entertainment to fill the scenes we've already seen — because otherwise we're all just victims of a publicity stunt.
  • Editor S closing argument: The book version of New Moon is 563 pages. That's a lot of ground to cover, and we have plenty left to still see. Worst case scenario? Everything's out there in the open right now. You know you'll still be sitting next to me opening night, Editor B, your skittles and popcorn in hand, a big fat smile on your face.

So whose side are you on? Are you loving the footage or has too much been revealed? To talk about the film even more, head over to the Twilight Movies group in the Buzz Community.

Does it spoil it for me? Absolutely not! Like I said before in the other thread, what is there to spoil, when you've read the books its not going to ruin the movie because you already know what's going to happen! It just makes you want even more, and all of the important parts are not being shown there will be plenty more! Oh and like someone said if you think it will ruin it for you then don't watch it! Its that simple!

I don't mind the spoilers, it has been a long wait and I deserve a reward for my patience!

I agree with number 19, you do not have to watch any trailer if you do not want to. It is up to you. Come on guys!! You have to click play to watch so it is all UP TO YOU!!! Popsugar can put any trailer if they want to ,and you can make the decision of watching it or not. Very,very simple.

I dont think they are spoiling the movie... at least for me... I like seeing what is going to happen in the movie... especially these movies... i watch the trailers all the time cuz i cant wait for movie to come out...

i've actually stopped watching the trailers since i think that they are just annoying at this point. i'm SO excited for the movie to come out but how many times can you either see the same scenes, or see the new stuff that they want you to see? i always fear that they show the best of the movie in the trailers and then you're really let down - i just really hope that's not the case this time!

I'm personally trying to avoid the overwhelming coverage of the Twilight franchise not because I don't want spoilers it's because I don't care. Eh, chances are I will only see this movie when I borrow it from someone later on. I read the books and I wasn't very impressed and the first movie was pretty awful.

CaterpillarGirl, I agree with you on your last point (#14). I skip trailers and avoid stories and links for most movies. This just happens to be the one movie franchise that I don't mind seeing everything in advance for. You had mentioned Star Trek earlier, and how the trailers kind of took the thrill away for you, and I am with you 100% on that - I was a fanatic about avoiding trailers. I succeeded and I loved the movie - I think seeing scenes beforehand would have made it much less exciting.

likethedirector, I agree with you. I prefer to save the behind-the-scenes stuff for the DVD release.

The trailers and the movie pictures don't ruin it for me. It's the behind-the-scenes stuff that ruins if for me. Instead of focusing on the movie, I'll be thinking about how each scene was filmed. That being said, I can't control myself. I HAVE to read every Twilight thing I see!

I'm with CaterpillarGirl -- just because you've read it and know what happens doesn't mean you want to see how they're adapting it for an audience. Do I love seeing some shirtless RPatz... of course! But I would have loved it just as much seeing it for the first time on screen. Previews are showing SO much of the plot (for all movies) I just wish they'd release a few previews of a few scenes and let the rest happen once it's released (i.e. Comedies almost always show the funniest parts in previews, so it's a let down when the rest of the movie isnt as funny, it doenst match your standards).

skigirl- SATC is a perfect example of a movie I also refuse to see pics from because it's not based on a book and you don't want to know anything about it you want it all to be a suprise!

It's not like there's a lot of surprises in there when it's based off of a book. Besides, it seems to me fans want spoilers, otherwise I wouldn't be seeing Twilight splashed all over the web

I get mad when I see pictures of Gossip Girls and other shows I watch online because I don't want to see who ends up with who and get any idea as to what the season hold but with these movies all the fans have read the books and I love seeing all the pics it gets me excited to see it all put together into a movie. I think when you read a book you can end up disappointed with bits left out in the movie but with seeing so much I know what to anticipate so it will be a happy ending for most fans.
