New Moon Set: Edward As An Apparition (May 4, 2009)

Lainey Gossip has some more pictures from the New Moon set where they are filming the scene where Bella first hears Edward’s voice, warning her against danger. To have Rob/Edward more present in the movie (they know their audience!), they have decided to actually “show” Edward speaking to her so we all get our fix. This is one change from the book I don’t have a problem with at all.

This is a picture I found from flickr that actually shows them arguing for the scene.

I’m a little worried as to how this will turn out, because it just seems really out there, but I’m hopeful. Rob and Kristen have the potential to do a good job with this.

New Moon Set: Bella On The Bikes! Spoiler Alert! (May 3, 2009)

Vancity Allie hit the jackpot again this weekend when she was hanging out by the set and spotted more filming taking place. This time, they were filming the scenes where Bella hears Edward’s voice for the first time, warning her from danger. If you are trying not to read or see any spoilers about additions made by the director to the story in the book for the movie, Do Not read on. Allie says,

This is how his scenes were filmed, and how they are going to incorporate more of him into the movie than the book: In this scene in the movie, Bella leaves the theatre with Jessica (the first time she goes to the theatre, not the second time when she goes with Mike and Jacob)… and encounters the same gang that she did in the first movie. And they’ve got motorcycles. She decides to go on a joyride with one of the gang members to try to upset Edward into appearing in her head again. Only in this particular movie scene, they actually filmed Rob Pattinson standing right beside Kristen Stewart telling her not to go, with Kristen standing and talking to the gang member beside his bike. (I’m sure they’ll make him an apparition in post-production editing)

So that’s my best guess at the Bella motorcycle mystery based on what I saw on set. This scene is not like New Moon… in the book, her and Jessica see the gang members sitting in a pub through the window. There was never any motorcycle scenes. The ones in the book are with Taylor Lautner on dirtbikes and he wasn’t there. (He was filming the scenes where he jumped from Bella’s window at the Swan house set tonight) What do you think? Why is Kristen on a motorcycle when it’s not in the books?

Ummmm. If I understand this correctly, I have a pretty big question. WHY IS BELLA GOING ANYWHERE WITH THOSE PERVS? I don’t get that. I mean, they wanted to RAPE her the first time she ran into them. I don’t know, but they are the last people I would be getting on a bike and going anywhere with.

But on the other hand, that is the absolute EPITOME of danger, and Edward would definitely be pissed off about Bella going anywhere with them. So that’s most like the way they are taking this, but I’m still a little annoyed about it. The argument can be made that Bella was not her brightest in New Moon, and I have to agree. But I’ve been there. I know how it feels to be broken up with and you do things later you regret. Thankfully, unlike Bella apparently, I didn’t do anything as rash as getting on a bike with any would-be attackers, I just made a few pathetic phone calls, wrote a few pointless letters (AND mailed them. I’m cringing over here just remembering that) and basically just did some things that caused me to lose some dignity, for at least a little while. Anyone who has been broken up with can relate.

So I will wait until I actually see the completed movie until I make judgements. I’m keeping my fingers crossed they get all the good stuff from the book in there (like this for example) and that they don’t add things that are totally out of the realm of possibility.

Check out Allie’s post to see more pictures and hear a video of the scenes being filmed, where you can hear Kristen saying some lines.

New Pictures From New Moon Set, The Bikes and The Beach (March 23, 2009)

Over on, there are some new pictures (well, new to me since I was on vacation) from the movie set of New Moon.

First, some shots were taken of Bella’s truck with the bikes in the back. These are from which should have some good scoop in the weeks to come. They live near where the filming is going on.

And here’s a good shot of Kristen as Bella on the beach. I read on several sites since I’ve been back that she and Taylor have already filmed the cliff-diving scene.


This picture was from SpoilerTV

Then there is a video from Borders bookstore with the cast all dressed for a New Moon promo photoshoot. Rob looks hot (as always), but Taylor somehow looks younger than he did in Twilight. Must be the haircut.


Starting To Get Really Excited Now…


Just Jared has pictures of the cast in Vancouver doing a little shopping before they begin filming. But what really caught my attention about that post are the pictures of Taylor Lautner practicing on a dirt bike, assumingly for the scenes in New Moon when he and Bella ride the infamous motorcycles.

I still can’t believe New Moon is coming out this year, in about 8 months. I hope it’s enough time to do the story justice.
