You have to give credit to the PR guys on this one as it’s pure genius and made me laugh out loud when I watched it and I think you’ll like it too! As most of you will know, Twilight: New Moon is a story about vampires, werewolves & humans with Robert Pattinson providing the vampire, Taylor Lautner the Werewolf and Kristen Stewart the human.
Well, the humans can buy New Moon on DVD (here) the vampires fortunately don’t exist and surely it’s only fair that the wolves get to see the movie give the opportunity?! Well the ones at Longleat Safari Park were given exactly that opportunity when distribution company E1 entertainment rolled a 16sqm screen into one of the country’s only wolf enclosures, with the unique screening deemed ‘a howling success’ by the pack of 13 Canadian wolves at the park in Wiltshire.
Ian Turner, Deputy Head Warden at Longleat commented, “We’ve certainly never had a request like this before, so we were very intrigued to find out how the wolves would react to seeing their counterparts on screen. While they weren’t so interested in the romance – the scenes of the wolves certainly got their attention and prompted a series of howls as the film went on.”
E1 Entertainment Senior Product Manager Martin Gough added, “Whilst Twilight was all about the vampires, New Moon develops a new love interest for Bella and in doing so introduces a range of characters that are all werewolves. Whilst we’re used to deafening screams for Robert Pattinson, it’s a nice change to hear howls of approval for the rest of the cast, including the screen wolves themselves.”
I hope you enjoy the below and that it makes you laugh as much as I did!
