Today Entertainment Weekly released the first shot of the “New Moon” movie tie-in book cover, featuring a scene very different than on the film’s promotional posters.

In the “New Moon” teaser poster, Jacob is shown as clearly standing between Edward and Bella’s relationship; a foreshadowing concept for anyone familiar with the plot.

However, in the movie tie-in cover, Jacob is shown possessively holding Bella, while she looks like she is trying to pull away from him. An image of Edward’s face is shown over the moon, much like the imagery Stephenie Meyer originally intended for the cover of “Eclipse.”

The real question is: Why does a novel called “New Moon” — a night when there is no moon in the sky — have a sliver of the moon shown on the cover? Only Harper Collins can explain.

“The Twilight Saga: New Moon” hits theaters November 21, 2009.

    I like this poster. i like how New Moon has sort of an orange look, as opposed to twilight, that has more of a blue look, if that makes sense at all. I am team Edward, but i think that Jacob doesn’t act as “stalkerish” as Edward does sometimes. All im saying is that Jacob is a healthier boyfriend for Bella. I cant wait to see the film.
