When asked about the sequel, Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke stated, “It’s got werewolves, it’s got visual effects that turn people into werewolves, it’s got motorcycle stunts, you go to Italy. It’s probably twice as much as this [to film].”[5]

On December 13, 2008, Summit Entertainment released a synopsis of New Moon, which states: “Bella Swan is devastated by the abrupt departure of her vampire love, Edward Cullen, but her spirit is rekindled by her growing friendship with the irresistible Jacob Black. Suddenly she finds herself drawn into the world of the werewolves, ancestral enemies of the vampires, and finds her loyalties tested.”[6]

Charlie Hinton is a busy working father and his wife Kim Hinton has just gone back to work as a lawyer. They enroll their son in the Chapman Academy, a very strict, military-like day care headed by Mrs. Harridan. Soon after, Charlie is laid off after the health division in his company is shut down. Desperate for money and no job offers on the horizon for six weeks, he opens up a day care center with the help of two friends, Phil and Marvin. As it became more popular, Chapman Academy became less populated, because Charlie’s center, Daddy Day Care, is much cheaper and more laid back. Mrs. Harridan attempts to shut down Daddy Day Care by notifying Child Services that Charlie and Phil are not following the child services codes. Mr. Cubitz, a child services director points out the codes that need to be fixed, which Charlie and Phil quickly correct.

Later, Mr. Cubitz, tells them they have too many kids to hold their day care at the Charlie’s residence. They find a potential new location in an abandoned building, however they must raise the money to buy it. They hold a fund raising festival called “Rock for Daddy Day Care.” When Mrs. Harridan finds out about this, she and her assistant decide to wreck it by unplugging a bouncy castle, trapping the kids inside, putting cockroaches in all of the food, and releasing the animals from the petting zoo, causing them to eat the food. This causes Daddy Day Care to not raise anywhere near enough money to buy their new facility.

Charlie and one of his friends are offered a better job and they decide to take it. Mrs. Harridan offers to take all of Daddy Day Care’s kids. Charlie soon realizes that the job is not what he really wants to do. He goes to Chapman Academy and successfully convinces the children and their parents to come back, and Daddy Day Care becomes a raging success. This causes Chapman Academy to shut down and Mrs. Harridan to take a job as a crossing guard and her former assistant to take a job at Daddy Day Care at their new facility.

Seventeen-year-old Bella Swan moves to Forks, a small town on Washington state’s rugged coast, to live with her father, Charlie, after her mother remarries to a minor league baseball player. She is quickly befriended by many students at her new high school, but she is intrigued by the mysterious and aloof Cullen siblings. Bella sits next to Edward Cullen in biology class on her first day of school; he appears to be disgusted by her, much to Bella’s confusion. A few days later, Bella is nearly struck by a van in the school parking lot. Edward inexplicably moves from some feet away and stops the vehicle with his hand. He later refuses to explain this act to Bella and warns her against befriending him.

After much research, Bella eventually discovers that Edward is a vampire, though he only consumes animal blood. The pair fall in love and Edward introduces Bella to his vampire family, Carlisle, Esme, Alice, Jasper, Emmett, and Rosalie. Soon after, three nomadic vampires—James, Victoria, and Laurent—arrive. James, a tracker vampire, is intrigued by Edward’s protectiveness over a human and wants to hunt Bella for sport. Edward and his family risk their lives to protect her, but James tracks Bella to Phoenix where she is hiding and lures her into a trap by claiming he is holding her mother hostage. James attacks Bella and bites her wrist, but Edward, along with the other Cullen family members, arrives before he can kill her. James is destroyed, and Edward sucks James’s venom from Bella’s wrist, preventing her from becoming a vampire. A severely injured Bella is taken to a hospital. Upon returning to Forks, Bella and Edward attend their school prom. While there, Bella expresses her desire to become a vampire, which Edward refuses. The film ends with Victoria secretly watching the pair dancing, plotting revenge for her lover James’ murder.

In the year 2035, robots are commonplace, doing all forms of jobs from factory work to mail delivery. On the day before the release of the new Nestor Class 5 (NS-5) Chicago Homicide Detective Del Spooner receives a call that his old friend Doctor Alfred Lanning (James Cromwell), inventor of the Three Laws of Robotics and co-founder of U.S. Robotics (USR), had been found dead. Surveillance footage initially suggest Lanning’s death is a suicide. However, Spooner, who has an intense distrust of robots, believes Lanning was murdered. With the help of Doctor Susan Calvin, he searches Lanning’s office where he finds an NS-5 and captures it after it fails to obey Doctor Calvin’s commands. During interrogation, the robot, who calls himself Sonny (Alan Tudyk), tells Spooner that he was built by Doctor Lanning himself and insists, when accused by Spooner, that he didn’t kill Lanning, visibly angered. Sonny also tells Spooner that he is capable of sleep and having dreams, but before Spooner can get any more information, USR CEO Lawrence Robertson (Bruce Greenwood) arrives with his lawyers and takes custody of Sonny.

After Spooner’s Commanding Officer John Bergin (Chi McBride) insists that the death was a suicide and that Spooner is getting nowhere in his investigation, Spooner decides to search Lanning’s home. As Spooner searches the house, a demolition robot with a command to demolish the house the next morning activates and destroys the house with Spooner inside. He manages to get out, but is unable to convince Doctor Calvin of his suspicions. On his way home, Spooner is approached by two USR trucks and attacked by the NS-5s inside, causing an accident. Spooner fends off an NS-5 with his cybernetic left arm, but when the police arrive, the NS-5 destroys itself while other robots clean up the remains of the accident. Spooner is unable to convince Bergin of the truth and is relieved of duty.

After escaping Robertson’s office with Sonny’s help, Spooner decide to use nanites designed to decommission robots to destroy VIKI. Sonny is sent to get them, since his dense alloy can withstand the force field protecting the nanites. Meanwhile, Calvin’s attempt to open the hatch to VIKI’s mainframe is thwarted by more NS-5s. When Sonny arrives, Spooner orders Sonny to give him the nanites and rescue Doctor Calvin. Spooner successfully destroys VIKI, returning the NS-5s to normal. Concluding that Doctor Lanning ordered Sonny to kill him after designing Sonny as a safeguard against the coming rebellion, Spooner dismisses the charges against Sonny under the pretense that murder can only happen between two humans.
