‘Twilight: New Moon’ exclusive: Three dozen photos from the set with Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart

Sept. 21, 2009 | 6:13 p.m.


I was talking to David Strick just last week about bringing Hero Complex readers more exclusive photos from the sets of Hollywood films both past and present, and he promised to dig into his considerable archive to do just that. Strick is the driving force behind Hollywood Backlot, an amazing corner of the Los Angeles Times website that takes readers onto the soundstages of Tinseltown to show stars and filmmakers at work on tomorrow’s classics.

Strick has a major new exclusive at Backlot today: He was on the Vancouver set of “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” and came back with 37 photos of Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Kristen Stewart, new  director Chris Weitz and other principals in the project that reaches theaters on Nov. 20. Check out the new photos right here.

    Fantastic! Thank you LA Times!! As a 37 year old fan, I tend to blame my 12 year old niece for the t-shirts, key chains, etc., etc., …just plain obsession with all that is Twilight. But after meeting many other fans my age this year, I don't feel so bad. I believe there are much worse addictions out there. ;)

    I really like the photo with Rob and Kristen on the bed. I think that's my fave of all these beautiful shots. It looks really intriguing!

  10. Dude Angus says:

    Is this movie going to be a monster or what? My kids can't wait to see it, and everywhere I turn I am seeing advertisements and pictures. I won't be surprised if this makes it into the top ten for first day ticket sales.

    Merci, cher LA Times pour vos photos sur Twilight. Je suis une maman, Qui tentais d'Expliquer à ses filles, que l'hystérie des fans de devait pas exister. Je ne voulais pas les voir crier Comme des folles. Ces acteurs font Leur travail, certes, plutôt bien, je le conçois. Les photos montrent le tournage d'un film, avec des Hommes et des Femmes en train de jouer des personnages, Qui sont peut-être loin de ce Qu'ils Sont vraiment.La réalité de photos SCÉ sur mes filles convaicu, que le jeux d'acteur de l'ONU: Un travail est à part entière et une non que l'occupation du fel en dilletante. Si le travail est bien fait, cela transparait Dans le film. A présent, mes filles crient moins les prénoms des protagonistes du film, quand elles les voient sur les écrans, Elles Ont plus de respect.

    Twilight is amazing if you dont love it then your crazy. I read all the Twilight books atleast 5 times they are sooooo amazing. I can't read any other books because i don't think their better intersesting like Twilight is. I couldn't even get in to The Host because it wasn't about Vampires lol

  13. beckie says:

    can't wait til new moon is out, countin down the days til its released….. the books are brill so i hope the film lives up too it….

  14. Sandy says:

    I still love Johnny Depp best!!!

  15. You rock Bella and Edward and the wolf guy 

  16. katie says:

    hey its cumin be radiy.

  17. Kristina aka Shadow says:

    I love the twilight series so far…im only in the second book right now, but i am absolutely obsessed with it. Jacob could not be sexier, whilst Edward will be the only one who enters my dreams…His cadaverousness skin, his brooding golden eyes that pierce through your soul at the deepest glace, if edward was real, I would want to keep all to myself. I want to be someone's Bella. And I want my own Edward. If anyone reads this and has any connection to the smart, sophisticated actors Robert Pattinson or Taylor Lautner, tell this to contact me anytime, anyplace. If anything, I would just like to have a long conversation with either of them, and for the best, bot of them. They are both amazing actors, and they both take strong, beautiful pictures. My name is Kristina, and I want to meet with either of them…no matter what I have to do.(hope that doesnt sound psycho or stalkerish…haha)

  18. Heather Locklear says:

    I've watched Twilight, read "New Moon" and "Eclipse" I'm currently reading "Breaking Dawn", after this saga where do I go from here? I'm not sure if I can live without Edward, Bella, and Jacob in my daily life. I need More!!!!!!!

  19. linda randall says:

    I love Twilight and I really admire Stephanie Meyers for believing in herself as a writer and taking that step towards getting her book published!
    Imagine how life would be without twilight?
    We'd all be bored to tears, with nothing to look forward too.
    Now we have Harry Potter in the summer, and Twilight New Moon in the fall.
    Hollywood just has to work on Spring and Winter and were all set! :)

  26. Davida and K-Lee All says:

    Mother and daughter Twilight fans. Dad is a fan also.
    We did not allow K-Lee to see the movie, Twilight, when it first came out due to my aversion to the subject of vampires. A friend had allowed her daughters to read the books and convinced me that it was something different and worth reading. K-Lee, a 10 year old with dyslexia, wanted to go straight to the movie; however; the home school teacher in me set some requirements. K-Lee had to read the book, Twilight, and writed a persuasive book review before I would allow her to purchase and watch the movie. Her thesis argument pointed out that no matter how evil someone is they can choose good. I read the book myself before giving it to K-Lee. We were instant fans and have read all of the books twice. I have read Midnight Sun on Ms Stephenie Meyer's website and am now reading it again with my daughter. PLEASE MS. MEYER COMPLETE THE BOOK, MIDNIGHT SUN, IT IS EVEN BETTER THAN TWILIGHT. WE WANT TO ADD IT TO OUR BOOKSHELF ALSO.!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. VICTORIA says:
