I never do junkets. But at Comic-Con a year ago last July, the place went nuts over Twilight star Rob Pattinson. So last November, I knew I had to interview the young Brit actor with my flip cam. Summit gave me a one-on-one with him at the Four Seasons.

He doesn't do one-on-ones anymore. This past July, the Hall H fans went nuts again, with New Moon footage (here's my coverage of the press conferences, complete with video).

Now a year after Twilight (worldwide gross: $382.5 million) comes the November 20 release of the Twilight Saga sequel based on Stephenie Meyer's New Moon. And Pattinson's on the cover of Vanity Fair. They're teasing us with a little taste, because they want us to plunk down some change for the print edition. Vanity Fair links and Pattinson video are on the jump.

Here's some of the VF feature and a Bruce Weber slide show. Here's the official Myspace page.

Here's Pattinson, in all his lovely, pre-craziness glory:

And here's a New Moon Volturi Featurette (and screencaps):
