TYLER, TX (KLTV) - The second film of the popular Twilight saga, "New Moon," debuts in theatres across East Texas, and theaters are expecting long lines and sold out shows. But, before you head out to see the movie, here is your preview.

It's a love story that's left fans wanting more.

"Just loved the first movie," said Hope Lawrence. "It was so intense and wonderful and I've just been waiting patiently."

Theatres, like Times Square in Tyler, sold out early for the midnight premier of New Moon.

"As soon as I got here, I had some people walking up to the doors waiting, and we only had three left," said Jeremy Simpson.

The movies are based on the Twilight saga by Stephenie Meyer which has millions of readers and now the film is sucking in a record amount of fans. Hollywood watchers are anticipating nearly a $100-million bite out of the box office this debut weekend.

"I think we're going to have 300 women up here in line ready to watch and some guys that are getting dragged along with it," said Simpson.

Good guys like James Cooper, surprised his wife with tickets.

"I will sacrifice my movie-watching time for her anytime," said Cooper.

Hope Lawrence is also anticipating a special date-night.

"It's my fourth anniversary with my husband, and so he gave me the choice to pick what we were going to do and this was my only choice," said Lawrence. "He's not so excited but he will bear it. He's being a good man about it."

Theatres are bringing in extra employees, expecting just as much magic as Harry Potter.

"Like Harry Potter, they were all dressed up casting spells outside on each other and stuff so I'm sure we'll have some people dressed up like Twilight characters," said Simpson.

It is a romance that is coming through the screen and off the page, into fans' hearts.

"It's that love that you know doesn't take very much and that's what true love is," said Lawrence.

If you are going to see New Moon opening weekend, we really want to hear what you think about it. So, after you see it, click here to leave your movie review in the comment box at the end of the story.
