First Glimpse Of Cast On New Moon Set *Plus New Moon Movie Poster* (March 13, 2009)


Photos from the set hit the internet today of the cast taking a break as they do wardrobe testing and adjustment. They are trying out wigs on certain characters this time, Nikki Reed mentioned in a recent interview that dyeing her hair blonde made it fall out. Her wig is a little obvious, but it looks like Rosalie to me. Jackson’s wig looks pretty good, he cut his hair for another film, but I’m glad to see the sexy Jasper hair is back.

The first picture I saw of Taylor made me say, “Woah!” He’s looking pretty buff, but his wig looks…girly. It looks how I want MY hair to look. It’s got volume, bounce and shine!


It's kind of looks like he is shooting a laser out of his eyes!

And the character I was looking most forward to seeing…you know the one…Edward Cullen. He looks delicious (a little too heavy on the makeup though).


Those ever present Nike’s. I wonder if Rob will be wearing those in the movie, if he will make them an integral part of Edward’s style, like the pea coat.

The Spoiler TV website also has a New Moon poster up. This looks a little fan made to me, but you never know.


Edward looks so conflicted, just like he should. I’m so excited for this movie already!


New Moon Expectations *Spoilers Ahead*

This post is a little early (ok, like WAY early. Only 259 days left!) but I already have my expectations of what I need to see from the New Moon movie. I’m a little upset by the way certain things were missing from Twilight (like the “I love you”‘s. It wasn’t said by Edward or Bella ONCE!), so hopefully certain things are better in New Moon. You hear me, Melissa Rosenburg? These scenes better be PERFECT in the movie, or I (and many others) will hate you with the fiery passion of a thousand blazing suns.

First scene that better be there and done correctly, the dream Bella has in the beginning. This was the first time I cried reading New Moon (God knows it wasn’t the only time) because that image was so powerful to me, of beautiful and perfect Edward with his arms around a shriveled old Bella. Edward wouldn’t love her any less of course, but I knew that this was not what Bella wanted, and I was terrified for her because I thought this was a possibility. But honestly, who would rather get old and die than live forever with Edward? This would be an amazing scene for the movie to show the contrast between what Bella wants and what Edward wants. 

Next, you know what’s coming. The birthday party. I wanna see Jasper go crazy and animalistic (Oh yeah baby. That’s going to be so sexy!). I want to see the fear and anguish Edward has over this because I need some justification for What Happened in Chapter 3 (this gets capitalized because you know how important it is).

Now the thing no one wants to see, but you can’t have the story without it. What Happened. The break up. Possibly the saddest break up in the world, and that is really saying something. This needs to be one of the most intense parts of the movie, because it is in the series. I will cry at this anyway, but this better translate on screen (Listen up, KStew, no frantic blinking and stuttering). I also want the “Time passes…” in there too. I will never forget the desolation I felt, how my heart just sank when I turned the page and it had month after month. I will never forget it because I have been there myself, when the world went on without me after I had my heart broken so cataclysmicly, and I watched will dull eyes and a dead soul. Those pages brought it all back for me.  It made me not want to read the book again, but I realized it needs to happen for the story, for Edward and Bella to really grow as people and to truly love each other. For all those reasons, it needs to be perfect in the movie.

I want to see Bella the zombie. When I read this part of the book, I am depressed and this effects my actual day to day life, it did especially that first time. This needs to happen in the movie, so that when Jacob comes in, there is a tangible feel of relief like you feel when you read about it. 

I want to see Bella hear Edward’s voice in her head. This was the 3rd time I cried like a baby reading the book because that has also happened to me. Not the way it did with Bella where she thought Edward was talking to her, but I would have flashbacks of him out of no where. Once I was in the shower washing my hair, just minding my own business, and suddenly I heard him say in my head something he had always told me throughout our relationship. It was like he was right there, and it was so painful to me because what he had said so often obviously became not true after he left me. I was mad at my brain for doing that to me, but I still understood Bella’s need to hear Edward again and again. It was all she had left.

We need to see Bella and Jacob become close and how this effects her. She uses Jacob (and I’m sorry, but she does) to distract her from her misery, which is perfectly understandable to me. I want to see the motorcycles and the walk in the woods, all of it. As much as I can’t stand the fact that there was even a choice between Jacob and Edward, this needs to be as apparent in the movie as it is in the books.

I’m also looking forward to seeing Jacob go through his transformation. I had a feeling of foreboding when he went home early after the movies and then when he didn’t answer the phone for days, so this would be cool for the movie.

I will take the time right here to say, these special effects for the wolves better not suck. I was a little weirded out in Twilight with the way they did Edward’s sparkles. The first time on the rock was cool (shirtless Rob/Edward is something I will never complain about), but when he was laying in the meadow, the effect they used erased some of his features and he kind of looked like…a toad.

Edward Cullen should never remind me of an amphibian. Ever. So Summit, when you attempt this again, try for some better special effects, kthnx.

I want to see Bella cliff dive. This will be one of the coolest parts of the movie because it will be (to quote a certain evil vampire here) “visually dynamic” and this is the event that triggers so many other amazing events, like Alice coming back and everyone knows what that lead to.

The phone call. OMG the phone call. I wanted to jump through the book and KILL Jacob Black dead when that happened. We almost lost Edward because he wanted to be a jerk. For that, he cannot be forgiven.

I want to see in the movie everything that happened in the last few chapters of the book, from the mad dash to Italy on. Alice needs to have her awesome yellow Porchse, Bella needs to run screaming through Volterra, and Edward needs to be taking his shirt off. I want to see the tourists be lead to their deaths too because I’m morbid like that.

Finally, I want to see the most romantic thing I have ever read, when Edward explains to Bella the way he loves her. When I was reading New Moon out loud to Jeremy, I couldn’t read this part to him because I started crying. That happened to me a lot during their reunion, like when he told her, “When I told you that I didn’t want you, it was the very blackest kind of blasphemy.” and when she mentioned she didn’t want to get old and he said, “You’ll always be the most beautiful thing in my world.”, that gets me every time, y’all. But here is the major thing I need to hear Edward/Robert say:

“Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars –points of light and reason….And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason for anything.”

I’ve made peace with the fact that I will be bawling like a baby in public when I go see this in the movies, so they really need to lay it on thick with all the emotion this movie will make all the Twilighters feel.

Lastly, the proposal. I wish there was some way they could go back and change the book so that Bella was a little more enthusiastic about it (I mean, come on. Edward Cullen is asking you to marry him, and you are worried about what other people will think?! Get your priorities right.) but I want to see him pour his heart out as he’s letting Bella know he’s back for good.

So I think I got everything. I will be eagerly awaiting any footage that leaks in the next few months that will let us know if all this is in there or not. I read today that Rob will back in Vancouver by the end of the week for filming, so hopefully that’s true!


Rosalie Hale Is A Bitch

I got hooked on the Twilight series because of Edward Cullen. He was just so awesome, one of the best characters I’ve ever read about and he was enough for me to love the books. But when we were all introduced to the Cullen family, it was an added surprise. I wasn’t expecting to like all of them the way I did, and they helped me to better understand Edward’s life and his attitude.

I love Carlisle because he’s just an all around bad ass. I love Esme for being so sweet and motherly. I love Emmett for making everything funny, and being so single minded when it comes to fighting or his family. I love Jasper because he has so much vampire fighting experience and he has the awesome power of changing moods. I love Alice because she is just so ALICE. She predicts the future, is as sweet as Esme, and she likes fashion.

But there is one member of the Cullen family I really can’t stand. I understand how she is integral to the story by giving us another take on Bella’s ultimate decision. I understand and even appreciate why her character needs to be there. But I still hated reading about her.

Well, I alternated between hating her and feeling sorry for her throughout the series. In Eclipse when she told Bella the story of how she became a vampire, I thought it was really mature of her to state her reasons for being so against what Bella wanted (p.s, I also thought the way she got revenge was pretty sweet too. That’s exactly what I would do!). What happened to her was awful and I understand her resentment of that, and the way she had to give up without a choice the thing she wanted most, a child.

Aside from all that, I still thought she was so immature to treat Bella the way she did. Did she not understand that she and Bella are two different people and so the same decision is not always right for two different people? Bella was becoming a vampire by choice, for love. Just because Rosalie didn’t have that choice doesn’t mean she should treat Bella the way she does. What was the purpose of that? If she was a big enough bitch, then Bella would change her mind?

I don’t hate Rosalie because she is beautiful, self centered, conceited, and extremely selfish. I understand this is what makes up her character, and she was needed to prove that even the vampires have flaws. But I like I said earlier, reading about her was not pleasant.

She was the worst in Breaking Dawn. When Bella first called her, I was like, “WTF are you doing, Bella?! Are you crazy? All she wants is the ba- OH. Ok. I get it. Good thinking then.” Bella counted on Rosalie to not care at all about her, but instead have concern for the baby alone, because that’s what she needed. Bella was desperate to save the baby, and she knew in Rosalie she could find that. It just made me grit my teeth every time Rosalie did or said something to make it clear she didn’t care if Bella lived or died, like when she took the baby as soon it was born and ran out with her without a care for what happened to Bella.

I really hope if or when Stephanie Meyer writes another book about anyone in Twilight, I really hope it isn’t Rosalie. I would really like to have the entire series from Edward’s point of view. I want to know what he was up to while he was gone in New Moon. It would be a very interesting read, to say the least.
