I just don't see how the pain can translate onto the big screen well. Like when she goes under after realizing that her pictures are gone, and doesn't really resurface for months. It was so excellently written.


No worries, I don't think anyone thinks New Moon the movie will be able to out pace New Moon the Book. Just isn't going to happen. I just hope it give it a run for the monie... :P

I agree with you. I can't see how the movie could be better than the book. NM is just soo good but at the same time depressing and sad. They'll try really hard to bring the pain and what not Bella goes through onto the big screen but I don't think they'll be able to do it justice. When I heard that someone said it would be better than the book it's like WHAT?!?! (Who was it that said that anyone know? Was it MR?)

I read an interview that Kellan did & he said he likes the NM script better than the Twilight one. Who knows exactly what that means or what he could like better. But that gives me hope that NM will be really good.

That's why I have mixed feelings on seeing the movie, I know it'll be sad :cry: & depressing. But I want to see it just the same.


When are we going to get some pictures of the Volturi? I really want to see them in costume, makeup, and what not. We already got the wolf pack, now I want to see the Volturi.

They got some big news over at http://www.newmoonmovie.org Excuse me while I go into my corner...

*** :o :o :D :o :o ***

Okay I'm back.

At this point I'm just hoping for a good movie. Seriously, it might be best to leave our expectations at the door. They've got it drilled into their heads that Edward should be in it more and all the fans are rabid 12 year-olds, there's no moving a stubborn mule like that. As long as they manage to capture the overall theme, and Rob's presence is tastefully done, that could be good enough for me. I still can enjoy the book :)

(if it's another mediocre film though, I just may be tempted to egg a few houses...) :lol:

did this come from a reliable source? Because we may not even have to worry about it.


well the apparent info I got is from Lainey Gossip honestly I don't trust her but she seems to freakishly know a lot of details so you never know. but what she hears and then writes if filtered through her mind, and she's not much of a Twilight fan so I doubt she cares about giving exact correct details so whatever, Edward stepping in front of Bella is probably not true.

what I don't get is why the "writer" (said in disgust) feels the need to rearrange everything in the books to make a movie? I think that NW is probably on of the easiest books to shoot as a movie and yet here comes the rearranging and dropping of small but important details to look, style, etc... of the book.

I know my brain is way to tied to the books, I will live in hope but not expect much from the chick "writer"/ movie.

small rant over. :)

This is supposed to be the real one. It leaked a few minutes ago. Who knows if it's real or not...

<edit> I think it is, it looks too good. I'm pretty excited if it is. It looks awesome!!!!!

I honestly couldn't find what was so appealing about that Rob and Kristen filtering image video. Now if i could understand what they were saying that would be another thing, but just watching the two of them doesn't rock my socks.

As for the Jane hurting Edward part, well itcan be easily done. Edward could drop to the floor on his knees, clawing at his head, grimacing, and yelling. I see no point in throwing him against the wall when that isn't even Jane's power. So hopefully this is just gossip.

*Sigh* I'm really getting fed up with all the news that rob will be in this scene and that scene. I honestly don't want to see rob in the movie. The way it sounds like the movie is deviating from the book, i'll be sick of Edward by the time they reunite. I have to admit that the scenes i hear they are filming with him seem pretty awseome and i'd love to see them, but New Moon isn't about Edward, it's about Bella moving on and it's about her friendship with Jacob and about the werewolves. If the movie was longer then Twilight, then maybe i'd welcome these additions, but i doubt it will. I love Edward, but i think he is going to be in far too many scenes. Now if the movie is done like i think they might do it, i'd expect a couple moments of filtering images, maybe 4 or 5, but none lasting for anymore then a few seconds. Next, i'd hope that the scary dreams of Edward means only one, maybe two short flashes of dreams. Now as for the phone call Edward gets and the deteriating phone and seeing Edward stand in front of the Volturi asking for death, i believe will happen in Alice's mind and that they will be short flashes.

Despite what i might have said above, i believe Chris will do a great job with New Moon, however, i'm just concerned that they will add too much Edward. What i mentioned above would be fine by me, however, i think alot of people forget this but New Moon is mostly about Bella and Jacob's growing relationship, the werewolves, and Bella finding a way to move on from Edward.
