With the latest movie installment in the Twilight saga, New Moon has established record ticket sales. Based on the second best selling book in the vampire series, the film has had the third best box office weekend in film history. New Moon has brought in a whopping $140.7 million, third only to Spider Man 3 and the Dark Knight. With these figures established after only two days, New Moon can still become the biggest selling movie in debut history. The final numbers will come out tomorrow.
After reading New Moon, it is no surprise to me this film has been so successful in sales. The novel by Stephenie Meyer is a compelling continuation of Isabelle Swan's love for Edward, a vampire. In this story, Edward ends their forsaken relationship to prevent Bella from continuously being harmed physically. Bella does not take the break up lightly and seems to be forever heart-broken with out her true love. In this story, Bella strengthens her relationship with one of her friends named Jacob, who she later discovers to be a werewolf. Bella has to choose between being a werewolf follower or a vampire lover due to their ancient rivalry.
