‘New Moon’ Gets Big Box Office, Disappoints Critics

Movie critics haven’t been nearly as excited about The Twilight Saga: New Moon as fans. Roger Ebert says of the film’s characters, “Their charisma is by Madame Tussaud.” The Los Angeles Times laments that lack of chemistry between Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart while USA Today thinks that KStew and Robert Pattinson’s relationship is the one that suffers the most.

Regardless, fans have flocked to the theater, effectively breaking the record for most advance sales of any film ever. New Moon is expected to earn more than $85 million for its opening weekend. Meanwhile, Kristen and Rob are doing their best not let the sparks fly off-screen, seen here leave a lounge in the Meatpacking District of Manhattan separately.
