Hi, The poster (Twilight 1 Sheet) arrived today in perfect condition!. Thank you. I am very very happy with the purchase, even I think its beautiful. I have not seen a poster of this quality available here. It was purchased as a gift for a teenage girl who is graduating high school soon. Of all things, the poster is what she requested along with a Jane Austen novel.
Receiving the poster will make her day. Absolutely.Thank you for all your help during the purchasing and shipping process. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase from you again or recommend other people to do so.
Kind regards, Debbie.

This article contains indepth information about The Twilight Saga: New Moon.
New Moon (marketed as "The Twilight Saga: New Moon") is an upcoming 2009 United States romantic fantasy film scheduled for release on November 20, 2009. It is based on the novel of the same name by Stephenie Meyer and is the sequel to 2008's Twilight, which is based on Meyer's previous novel. Directed by Chris Weitz, the film stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner, reprising their roles as Bella Swan, Edward Cullen, and Jacob Black, respectively. Melissa Rosenberg returns as the screenwriter for the film. She handed in a draft of the film script during the opening weekend of Twilight. Summit Entertainment greenlit the sequel in late November 2008, following the early success of Twilight.
When asked about the sequel, Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke stated, "It's
got werewolves, it's got visual effects that turn people into werewolves, it's
got motorcycle stunts, you go to Italy. It's probably twice as much as this [to
In early November 2008, Summit announced that they had obtained the rights to
the remaining books in Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series: New Moon,
Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn. On November 22, 2008, one day after the theatrical
release of Twilight, Summit confirmed that they would begin working on
New Moon. "I don't think any other author has had a more positive experience
with the makers of her movie adaptation than I have had with Summit
Entertainment," said Meyer. Melissa Rosenberg had been working on adapting the
novel prior to Twilight's release and handed in the draft for New Moon
during Twilight's opening weekend in November 2008.
Due to major physical changes that occur in the character of Jacob Black
between Twilight and New Moon, Weitz considered replacing Taylor
Lautner in the sequel with an actor who could more accurately portray "the new,
larger Jacob Black." In an attempt to keep the role, Lautner weight-trained
excessively and gained approximately 30 pounds. In January 2009, Weitz and
Summit Entertainment announced that Lautner would continue to play the role of
Jacob in New Moon. In an interview, fellow cast member Kristen Stewart
talked about Lautner's transformation saying, "He's an entirely different person
Pre-production for New Moon was started in December 2008. Filming was scheduled
to begin on March 23, 2009 in Vancouver, but began a few days early. David
Thompson Secondary School served as the location for the high school scenes in
the movie. Filming in Montepulciano, Italy occurred in late May 2009.
The score for New Moon is being composed by Alexandre Desplat. He replaces Carter Burwell, who wrote the score for the previous film, Twilight. New Moon director Chris Weitz has a working relationship with Desplat, who scored one of his previous films, The Golden Compass. The band Paramore, who had two songs on the Twilight soundtrack, will not be contributing to the soundtrack for New Moon. Weitz says that the soundtrack will feature songs from Radiohead, Muse, and Band of Skulls. On July 26, 2009, Jeph Howard of the band The Used stated on Twitter that he and his band were in the studio recording a song for the New Moon soundtrack.
The Cullens and the Swans
The first promotional poster from New Moon was released on May 19, 2009. On May
31, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner revealed the film's
first trailer at the MTV Movie Awards. Two scenes from the film were presented
at the 2009 San Diego Comic-Con. A 14-second preview of the second trailer was
released online on August 12, 2009, and the full-length trailer was featured
before theater showings of the film Bandslam. A third trailer was shown at the
MTV Video Music Awards on September 13, 2009. Spike TV aired a new trailer at
the 2009 Scream Awards on October 27.
Many theater showings sold out as early as two
months prior to the film's November 20, 2009 release date.
New Moon set worldwide records as the biggest midnight opening in history, grossing an estimated $26.3 million in 3,514 theatres. The record was previously held by Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which grossed $22.2 million during its midnight premiere. The film is also the biggest advanced ticket seller on Fandango, surpassing Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
Based on 130 reviews collected by the film
aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, New Moon has received a "Rotten" rating of
30%, with a weighted average score of 4.7 out of 10. Theresa Riley of The
Vancouver Sun gave the film a highly positive review, and noted, "With a
beginning totally loyal to the book, an awesome cliffhanger ending and an
amazing everything in between, this movie was fantastic and done much better
than I had expected". Robert Ignizio of the Cleveland Scene described New
Moon as an "entertaining fantasy", and noted that it "has a stronger visual
and does a better job with its action scenes while still keeping the focus on
the central love triangle." David Edwards of Daily Mirror also responded with a
positive review, stating, "...while the target audience is surely girls aged 12
to 20, there's enough here for film fans of all ages to sink their teeth into",
and made comments like, " Romeo And Juliet it ain't, but as a solid love story,
New Moon gets the blood pumping." Michael O'Sullivan of The Washington
Post gave the film three and half out of four stars, praised Kristen Stewart's
performance in the film and wrote, "Despite melodrama that, at times, is enough
to induce diabetes, there's enough wolf whistle in this sexy, scary romp to
please anyone." Seattle Post-Intelligencer gave the film a grading of "B" and
called it a "definite improvement". The New York Times agreed and hailed the
book as a "heartthrob thriller".
Summit approved a film adaptation of Eclipse, the third novel in the
Twilight series, in February 2009. The film is tentatively scheduled for
release on June 30, 2010. It was announced that Chris Weitz will not be
directing the third film. Instead, Eclipse will be directed by David
