Oh my I think I’ve just gone to heaven!! With 44 days & some-odd hours and counting til the “Twilight Series: New Moon” movie hits theaters, we’re now starting to find out a few more juicy tidbits about the upcoming film, along with a ton of up-until-now unreleased photographs hitting the net. These amazing pictures come from the recently released “New Moon Illustrated Companion,” and with around 95 or so photographs, they are hot enough to keep you occupied until November 20th. (You can see all the photographs released here.)
Some spoilers are making the rounds too, and they are sure to make Twi-hards even more excited about the upcoming movie. While none of them are considered ‘major’ spoilers, I do suggest you stop reading now and just gaze at the photographs for hours on end if you don’t want to be spoiled at all. If you’re curious like me and you cannot wait until November, then continue reading below!
Spoiler #1: When screenplay writer Melissa Rosenberg was writing the scripts, she tried to keep the fan base out of her head, but she couldn’t avoid it by the time of New Moon. She gave the men in Port Angeles motorcycles to make it a more “significant moment” and because motorcycles will become “an important part of her relationship with Jacob”.
Spoiler #2: While filming the breakup scene in the forest Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were being swarmed by mosquitos. In all the “vision” sequences Edward is wearing the same outfit he does when he said goodbye to Bella because that is the last memory she holds of him. As a sign that Bella is committed to Edward, her clothes are linked to his color wise. After he leaves she doesn’t pay much attention to her appearance.
Spoiler #3: The Cullen house used for “Twilight” was “a very specific house, and the only way out of that puzzle for us was to put portions of the story of New Moon in other parts of the house”. They scouted many locations for the Cullen house, but found one that was comparable enough with the house in Portland.
Spoiler #4: Robert quote: “The birthday scene at the Cullen house is like the ideal birthday party. The house is beautifully decorated and everyone is happy. Edward is looking at Bella and thinking that she can become part of his family and his life–that maybe this can work out the way he wants it to.” The sequence for the birthday party – Edward relates the history of the Volturi to Bella, she becomes wounded in the hand, and Edward faces off against Jasper.
Spoiler #5: They used the Blue Ray DVD of Twilight to help them with the age, color, texture and features of Bella’s house and room. They used the “Twilight Illustrated Companion” for help finding Bella’s truck.
Spoiler #6: Even the cameras used and their movements are done to show the relationship between the characters. One special challenge for the production team was how to convey Bella’s depression once Edward departs. In the books, the month pages do it (October, November, December, January.) In the film the passage of time is represented with visual effects. Bella sits in her chair in the bedroom and a camera circles around here while the seasons change outside her window.
Spoiler #7: Another shot manipulation, instead of Bella running to her truck and driving home after seeing the wolves in the meadow, she runs out of the woods and tells Charlie immediately that she saw them. The changes were made to make the scene more efficient.
Spoiler #8: When they are rebuilding the bikes there is a montage of scenes.
Spoiler #9: They wanted Jacob’s house to be “like a stepping stone into the forest world”. So it’s further from the heart of the reservation. Emily and Sam’s house is deeper in the forest, more separate from regular life.
Spoiler #10: Added to the movie, Jacob gives Bella a dreamcatcher. It stirs up emotions in all the major characters: Jacob says it will catch bad dreams. Edward is irritated that his rival gave Bella an intimate gift, and Charlie regrets that it stops working.
Ok, so there you have it Twi-hards! 10 Spoilers to keep you in limbo until the movie comes out. The passage of time in the book was very simple yet powerful. I like their approach to it for the movie. I got chills!
