Fandango has an article that talks about the most highly anticipated movies coming out this fall and of course, New Moon was listed. Chris Weitz talks about vampires and werewolves:
"I suppose they're the two most relatable human monsters that we can think of. They nicely encapsulate restraint and passion," Weitz said. "Vampires are cold-blooded, literally, and werewolves are hot-blooded."
