Having just arrived back in Tinseltown from Vancouver, Kristen Stewart was spotted out at a local Malibu studio with Taylor Lautner and ROBERT PATTINSON on Friday (October 30).
The “Twilight” co-stars are currently gearing up for promotional duties tied to the November 20th release of “New Moon” - as they were at the studio to watch the final cut of the vampire flick.
Dear Vanity Fair:
Seriously, reveal the cover photo now or else!!! We've already seen the preview pics last night on Extra!

They were previewed on Access Hollywood tonight and they'll be featuring a story on them Monday!!! Set your DVR!!!
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart wasted no time, um, possibly getting to business, once they landed in L.A. yesterday. Think they're finally answering our pleas to show us all a li'l more kissy stuff?
After they wrapped Eclipse early Thursday morning, the duo left Vancouver only to check in to the Chateau Marmont together yesterday afternoon.
Check it out:
A source close to the couple tells us that Rob and Kristen were driven into Chateau's private valley Thursday evening.
"They went straight up to a room," says a hotel source. "No one saw them the rest of the night."
Why are we not surprised?
We're told Robsten has not been seen leaving the hotel, nor were they spotted in the public lobby area.
If you remember, the Chateau was their hotel of choice when they shacked up together the weekend of the Teen Choice Awards.
Hopefully Rob and Kristen are managing to get some rest because they have a whirlwind next couple of weeks.
We're told the two will be hitting the road next week for New Moon promos before coming back to L.A. in a few weeks for the N.M. junket and premiere.
If director Chris Weitz's shining endorsement of Jane's evil nature wasn't enough to prove to Twilighters that Dakota Fanning has officially joined the dark side in "Twilight: New Moon," a new interview with Fanning herself adds fuel to the fire about just how bad Jane is.
"I think it's more fun to play a bad person than a good person," Dakota told "Extra" about the evil Volturi vampire. "She almost blows your mind how evil she is."
Weitz recently shared with MTV News that the dark role seemed like a perfect career move for the normally sweet Fanning. "She's never really gotten to play a bad person before, probably because she is a very good person. She is really a lovely young person. But I think she had some fun playing, really, the most evil of all the bad guys," Weitz said. "[Jane]'s bad news. Very bad."
The actress also joked about the white face powder she wore for the flick. "I thought I was pale before I did the movie, but I realized that I'm not!" Dakota said.
And Fanning's co-star Robert Pattinson can't believe how his vampire-appropriate pale British skin has made him a sex symbol these days, according to "Extra." "It's funny. People were like, 'He looks like a junkie,' " he recalled. "And now, 'Oh, he's so good-looking!' "
Pattinson also discussed managing to adjust to life in the public eye, something he's been open about in multiple interviews since he found superstardom in "Twilight." "I get nervous about everything. I get nervous about leaving the house!" he said. "Now I know it's too late to change my name. I really wanted to change my name to have a stage name. Now if I change it, I just look really lame."Source
With filming on "Eclipse" wrapping up, we couldn't resist asking "New Moon" director Chris Weitz whether he had seen any of the footage from next summer's blockbuster. He hadn't, he said, because he's been busy working hard to bring fans "New Moon," which hits theaters in less than a month. Surprisingly, he said he didn't really want to see the footage yet.
"As a fan and a filmmaker, I'm excited to see finished stuff from 'Eclipse' rather than anything in progress," Weitz said. "When you see works in progress, there's always some guy standing in front of some big green curtain, and it's all terribly disappointing. You really want to see the good stuff once it's all finished."
After "New Moon" was finished filming , Summit Entertainment announced that David Slade would be directing "Eclipse." Weitz said he had some early chats with Slade to let him know what "New Moon" was going to look like and how he had filmed the story, and then let Slade decide how he wanted to film the series' third installment.
"It was like the transition team, so I could kind of let him know where things are going," Weitz said. "The transfer of power was very successful. The transition teams coordinated extremely well."
But Weitz said he had no such discussion with "Twilight" director Catherine Hardwicke. (Granted, Weitz was announced as the "New Moon" director after "Twilight" was released.) Instead, he had long conversations with author Stephenie Meyer to make sure she thought he was the right director for the job and to make sure he captured her ideas of "New Moon" correctly.
In addition to it being Meyer's movie, he said it was also a fan's movie, and it was to the fans and Meyer that he felt he owed the most allegiance.
"[I] was reading the book and really trying to pay attention to what I thought the devoted reader would want out of the film," he said. "And I thought, 'Well, they want something grand.' "
"New Moon" will be much more of a blockbuster film than Hardwicke's indie take on "Twilight," Weitz confirmed. But he made sure to clarify that it won't be a blockbuster in the "Transformers" sense — there won't be objects exploding left and right — but in the classic "Doctor Zhivago" or "Seven Samurai" way.
"I think that Catherine Hardwicke had a very current pop sensibility and rock sensibility. I'm a complete square," Weitz said with a laugh. "['New Moon' has] more of an old-school ethic, which won't mean very much to most of the fans that are watching it, but in terms of how we set about shooting it, it probably feels a bit more like my sad attempt to echo David Lean or [Akira] Kurosawa or something like that."
