With The Twilight Saga: New Moon opening in theaters at the end of this week, expect lots of little Twilight-related tidbits to be arriving online over the next few days. Luckily, you Fandango Fanatics have me to scour these internets in search of all things of interest.
Twilight Scoop: New Video Game, Lautner Barbie and Watch the Premiere!
The Twilight Video Game
While I'm sure there are more Twilight-related video games heading our way in the near future since it's the one movie tie-in marketing tool that hasn't really been fully exploited yet, those Twi-hards looking for one right now can throw down a few bucks for Twilight: Scene It? You know the Scene It? series, right? It's the one where you go through and answer all sorts of fun questions related to whatever the main topic is. Well, now you can buy a Twilight Scene It? game, which is available as an iPhone app, a DVD game and on the Wii and Nintendo DS players.
The Taylor Lautner Barbie Doll
Not really into video games? Playing with and/or idolizing dolls more of your thing? Well, the good news for you is Mattel just released information on the upcoming Taylor Lautner Barbie, modeled after his Jacob character in New Moon. The Lautner Barbie follows in the footsteps of the previously-released Bella and Edward Barbie dolls, and he features a cute pair of cut-off jeans and – gasp! – no shirt. Might be a bit too sexy for the young ones, but you Twilight Moms should have a blast. The Taylor Lautner Barbie hits stores in February and retains for $24.95.
Watch The Twilight Saga: New Moon Premiere Online!
For those fans who aren't in Los Angeles and/or don't have access to attend the New Moon premiere in person, don't worry because you can watch the red carpet premiere via a live webcast beginning today at 5:30pm PT/8:30pm ET over on UStream. Anya Marina, singer of the song "Satellite Heart" on the New Moon soundtrack will co-host the broadcast with the winner of MySpace's Red Carpet Correspondent contest.
