It looks like New Moon and the Twilight franchise really are establishing themselves as the next big thing after the Harry Potter books and movies:
TWILIGHT sequel New Moon has taken �1million before even being released - as the fastest advance-selling film of the year.
Odeon and UCI cinemas reported that it had already sold 143,000 tickets.
The movie, starring ROBERT PATTINSON as vampire Edward Cullen and KRISTEN STEWART as lovelorn student Bella Swan, goes on national release on Friday.
That's pretty good you know, breaking the advance sales records for the year. There are what, four Twilight books so far, this is the second movie only and no doubt the author is pumping out more as we speak: so another decade or more of Twilight to come then, yes?
