Oh, thank goodness. I was worried that I would have to be staying up way past my bedtime tomorrow night, waiting for the sale of New Moon, which FYI officially goes on sale at many retail outlets and video stores at 12:01AM Saturday, March 20, 2010 . Or as we all know it, Friday at midnight. And while the stores can’t sell the movie one minute before then, they are staying open just so that the biggest fans can get their hands on it as soon as possible. But, we’ve found out that you can do one better than that even. Stay at home, in your PJs, with that remote in your hot little hands. Then settle back and get ready for the whole New Moonexperience!
It’s all made possible by Rogers and their On Demand service. On Saturday morning at 12:01AM, Rogers Digital customers can flip to Channel 100 and order the movie. And if I remember correctly, being a Rogers Digital customer, the movie is then yours to watch over and over again for the next 24 hours. Sure, you’ll want to go out and grab a copy anyway just to have one of your very own, but you’ll be able to take the edge by watching it a few times before you actually get a copy. But when you do have the hard copy of New Moon in your hands, there are a few things you’ll have to look forward to.
The DVD of the latest movie in the saga includes a commentary from director, Chris Weitz, plus a whole six-part series of just the making of the film. And of course, because after Saturday we’ll officially be in Eclipse-mania, there’s a little sneak peek of what’s to come in the newest movie for us too. Well, I guess I know what I’ll be doing on Saturday; watching New Moon on Rogers to start, and on Sunday, maybe going out to grab the DVD. Have a great weekend all!
