As the November 20th street date looms off in the distance, new details about “New Moon” are beginning to be revealed.

The “Twilight” sequel introduces the audience to the ancient ruling class of vampires known as the Volturi, and according to director Chris Weitz they’re a scary-looking bunch thanks to their ominous eyes.


Weitz told press, “They’re all hand-painted, specially manufactured contacts.  They’re opaque red, almost like preying mantis eyes. You can’t really see into them. There’s something terribly off-putting about it.”

Chris also gave props to author Stephenie Meyer for helping to cast vision for the Volturi look.  “Stephenie was very keen to steer away from a kind of wizard-y look for the vampires.  They do look quite young, but they convey a formality and self-possession, which comes from age.”
