"New Moon" is one of those special few DVDs that gets a release on a Friday night. Most DVDs get released on Tuesdays, but a select few (of course "Twilight" being included among them) get released later in the week because, like their big screen predecessors, fans can get hyped for midnight release parties leading into a weekend.
Many major retailers are getting in on the midnight release craze. We're sure you already have a DVD preordered, so you should check with the store yours is stashed at to see if they're going to be open at midnight and having a party.
Summit it making it easy for you to find a midnight release party by having a search engine available on the "New Moon" official website.Select Barnes & Nobles, Best Buys, 24 hour Wal-Marts, Borders and Blockbusters will also be open late on Friday night, some even having contests and giving away merchandise to the fans waiting.
Better yet, some of the stars from the film (no, we aren't talking about Kristen Stewart or Robert Pattinson, unfortunately), will be making the rounds to some major cities for midnight release parties. We don't know which store they will be visiting specifically, but if you are in one of those cities and want to see them, we're sure a little detective work won't hurt.
