“I think they’re still trying to find a place for the song in the film,” DCFC frontman Ben Gibbard laughed. “We keep hearing either the beginning or end … we have about as much information about this movie as [MTV] viewers do. We wrote a song for the thing and we don’t know what’s going on. So I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.”

Summit Entertainment announces that they will be releasing the documentary in conjunction with the New Moon DVD release, which will be in stores in early 2010.
Over the last few weeks, the team behind the first-ever documentary on the “Twilight” phenomenon has come to MTV News to unveil the initial details of their movie, as well as its one-sheet and teaser trailer. Now, they have even bigger news for Stephenie Meyer fans eagerly awaiting their flick: In a surprise move, Summit Home Entertainment has acquired the rights to distribute “Twilight in Forks.”
MTV News has learned that the studio behind the “Twilight” movies has spent the last several days negotiating with director Jason Brown and producers York Baur and Peter Cowles to distribute their independent film about the tiny Washington town that inspired a phenomenon. Summit plans to release the documentary in conjunction with the “New Moon” DVD release, both of which will hit stores in early 2010.
Although the news will postpone the film’s release by a few months, it’s a natural fit for the doc, whose full title is “Twilight in Forks: The Saga of the Real Town.” Brown and Baur were very visible at June’s “Summer School in Forks” symposium, where they shot many of the interviews for the film — a for-the-fans exploration into where “Twilight” ends, Forks begins, and an increasingly blurry line exists between the two.

Fans asked and Summit Entertainment has delivered. The second full-length “New Moon” trailer contains everything the first teaser trailer and the “Meet Jacob Black” trailer have not: more Volturi, more werewolves and more visions of Edward. The newest trailer is being shown before screenings of “Sorority Row” (out today), but an extended version will also be exclusively shown at the VMAs on Sunday, presented by Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner.
If the focus of the “New Moon” teaser trailer was on the breakup, and the focus of “Meet Jacob Black” was, obviously, to introduce a new werewolf Jacob, then the focus of this newest trailer is on what comes next. Most of the clip is set in Italy at the end of the film, when Bella is (spoiler!) trying to stop Edward from killing himself by turning himself over to the Volturi.

Celebrities are good at a lot of things: self-promotion, engaging us in engagement speculation, having MINDBLOWING hair ROBERT PATTINSON. But one thing they can’t be depended upon to do is SIT THEIR ASSES DOWN all by themselves. Here’s an inside look at the seat cards for the 2009 MTV VMAs, so all of the celebrities and guests know where to sit and the cameras know where to capture that perfect “Oh-seriously-I’m-so-happy-for-you!” face when their competition wins. (Cough cough Gaga versus Beyonce!)
See where Katy Perry, Gaga, Paramore, Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Janet Jackson, and more VMA guests will sit! (I love how Cobra Starship appears to get one seat for five people, while Death Cab For Cutie gets four separate seats! Also, keep in mind that suprise guests don’t usually get seat cards if you catch what I’m saying… )

MTV: So, Jamie, you told us that you experimented with different accents while working on “New Moon.” Is it safe to say that Caius and the other Volturi will have Italian accents, since they live in Volterra?
Jamie Campbell Bower: Actually, I have an English accent. Because they’re so old — they’re 2,000 years old, these guys — they would’ve tried [everything]. They’re speaking English now, but they wouldn’t have spoken English throughout all of their life. And so there’s sort of a round vowel sound. The R’s are very pronounced. It’s kind of strange. It’s almost medieval, the way we speak.
TV: What’s the one scene in “New Moon” you most enjoyed filming?
Campbell Bower: Well, there’s a particular scene where we rip this guy apart, and I just sit there smiling and really enjoying it. When I got the script, I was like, “That’s the one I want to do the most!,” because there’s nothing to say. It’s really sordid, gross and really grim — that was pretty fun.
