The Twilight Saga: New Moon made an astounding $140.7 million in box office earnings over the weekend, and the film's young cast is no doubt celebrating – but they're hardly taking a breather. A guide to what's next for the series and its stars:

• What's up with Kristen Stewart's next movie?
The actress otherwise known as Bella, 19, has been busy with non-Twilight projects. She stars as (another!) troubled teen in the New Orleans-set drama The Yellow Handkerchief, due Feb. 12. And she'll also appear in Welcome to the Rileys, a drama in which she plays a lap dancer, as well as the Joan Jett biopic The Runaways, headlining as the famed rocker alongside her New Moon costar Dakota Fanning.

• Where's the best place for fans looking to get their Team Edward and Team Jacob fixes?
New Moon audiences got a sneak peek of Robert Pattinson's next film, Remember Me, which opens March 12. (He plays a wayward college student opposite Lost's Emilie de Ravin.) And Twilight's Edward, 23, is attached to two other upcoming projects: Unbound Captives, a western costarring Hugh Jackman, and Bel Ami, a drama about an ambitious journalist who becomes involved with a Paris socialite, played by Uma Thurman). As for a certain sexy werewolf, Taylor Lautner, 17, appears (minus the fur and fangs but with his real-life sweetie Taylor Swift!) in the ensemble romantic comedy Valentine’s Day, opening Feb. 12.


• Are the sparks still flying between Kristen and Rob?
Yes! The super-stealthy pair were spotted dining together over the weekend.



• What's the dirt on Eclipse and Breaking Dawn?
Eclipse, the third film in the Twilight saga – due for release June 30, 2010 – focuses on a reunited Bella and Edward as they battle vengeful vampire Victoria. (Bryce Dallas Howard, taking over the role from Rachelle Lefevre.) As for the series' final installment, rumors have swirled that Breaking Dawn, which tackles more adult themes than the first three Twilight books, will be divided into two films. (A similar strategy is being used for the seventh and last Harry Potter book.) But Summit Entertainment, the studio behind the Twilight franchise, tells PEOPLE that any information on Breaking Dawn is "premature."


So, about that cliff-hanger at the end of New Moon ... Twi-hards who have read Stephenie Meyer’s books know where the series' star-crossed lovers end up, but...no spoilers here!
