“The Twilight Saga: New Moon” stars Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner will go head-to-head next Valentine’s Day at the box office.

Thanks to his huge crowd of groupies and an ability to shake off being hit by a cab, Pattinson has made waves during the New York City shoot of the drama “Remember Me,” in which two lovers (Pattinson and “Lost’s” Emilie de Ravin) try to keep their love alive amid tragedy.

Lautner, meanwhile, will be part of the huge cast of “Valentine’s Day,” a series of vignettes based around the holiday. Already on board are Jamie Foxx, Queen Latifah, Julia Roberts, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Jennifer Garner, Shirley MacLaine, Bradley Cooper, Ashton Kutcher, Patrick Dempsey, Eric Dane, Topher Grace, Emma Roberts and Hector Elizondo.

Both movies arrive in theaters on Feb. 12, 2010. So which is it, teams? Will you flock to Pattinson’s more serious effort, or will the star power surrounding Lautner get your ten bucks?

In “New Moon,” Pattinson’s vampire Edward and Lautner’s werewolf Jacob vie for the affections of human teen Bella (Kristen Stewart). The movie hits theaters Nov. 20.
