How do you stoke the hype on a movie millions of people are already clamoring to see? By not screening the film for the press until the last possible second, forcing most newspaper movie critics to race back to their laptop and pound out their review in 20 minutes. This guarantees those critics will be in a cranky mood when they see your film, because they know you're doing this on purpose. And for the record, I really liked the first movie (shut up).
Wait, did I just say all that? Sorry, it just slipped out. What I meant to say is that Alex Meraz and Kiowa Gordon, two of the members of the Quileute Wolf Pack from New Moon, will be appearing at Miami's Dadeland Mall on Wednesday Nov. 11 to perform their former top 10 smash Where Do You Go? for a meet-and-greet with fans and a Q&A session about the film.
I know what you're thinking: Why do we get these nobodies instead of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart? Because Pattinson and Stewart have payed their dues and don't do mall tours anymore. Meraz (he's on the far left), who plays Paul, and Gordon (far right), who plays Embry Call, may not be very famous yet. But remember that last year, when Taylor Lautner signed autographs at the Shops at Sunset mall, nobody knew who he was either. And look at him now.
Diehard Twilight fanatics who line up at Hot Topic or Nordstrom stores at 8 a.m. on Oct. 31 will get a VIP pass granting them "access to a special event" with the two wolf dudes when they visit Dadeland. For more information, go here or here or here.
