I thought everybody involved in last year’s fiasco learned their lesson. I thought wrong.
In an effort to raise awareness for the upcoming “Twilight” sequel “New Moon”, Summit Entertainment is planning another mall tour with select members of the cast. While it’s not yet known who is going to be at each location, the tour is hitting 15 cities and the locations and dates are after the jump.
And if you’re thinking this sounds familiar…that’s because last year they did the same thing and it caused chaos and pandemonium in every mall they stopped at. Then again, the publicity from all the craziness got them tons of extra media coverage. Look for the same thing to happen again this year. If you’re interested in learning more, hit the jump for the official press release.
