IESB has posted a couple of interviews with New Moon cast and filmmakers:
Interview with the Cullens: Kellan Lutz, Ashley Greene, Nikki Reed and Elizabeth Reaser [Read it all HERE!]
Q: How was it to make New Moon with a new director and a new story that has a whole different emphasis?
Ashley: This go-around, I think we were all a little bit more prepared, which was nice. In the first film, we were all going, “What’s going on? What’s happening?” And, we had the support of the fans behind us. In the first one, we were going, “Oh, God, we hope they don’t hate us,” and they completely embraced us. So, going into the second one, I think it was a much more fun, relaxed experience, at least for me.
Interview with the Volturi: Michael Sheen, Dakota Fanning, Cameron Bright and Jamie Campbell Bower [Read it all HERE!]
Q: Dakota, as such a fan of this series, what were the highlights of playing Jane?
Dakota: I think the highlight of playing Jane was getting to wear that costume and having the red contact lenses. I was really excited about that, and getting to play an evil character.
Interview with the Wolf Pack: Chaske Spencer, Alex Meraz, Bronson Pelletier and Kiowa Gordon [Read it all HERE!]
Q: How did you all make your abs look so great? Was there a wolf boot camp for this?
Chaske: No, they made us work out. It was an hour of training. They got us a trainer. It was a guy who helped out on 300. They threw us into the training for maybe an hour and 10 minutes, and it was a lot of circuit training and muscle confusion. We also ate a lot. We ate six meals a day, three protein shakes a day.
Filmmakers Chris Weitz, Melissa Rosenberg and Wyck Godfrey [Read it all HERE!]
Q: There are a lot of hunky guy moments in this movie that the girls are going to go crazy for. Even Laurent gets to show up bare-chested. Can you guys talk about constructing those moments and then delivering them?
Melissa: I wish I could take credit for the moments of Jacob pulling off his shirt and Edward pulling off his shirt. They are in the book and it seemed unwise to leave them out.
Chris: That would be a cut that you would regret. I like to say that it’s all essentially economics. You see, the Quileutes don’t have a very high average income and they can’t afford the t-shirts they would need, given the amount of times they turn into wolves on short notice and their clothes burst. They’d really have to go to Wal-Mart, every 10 minutes. They just go around in shorts, for that reason.
