I was actually just about to post about this. I can't wait to see what SM's answer is going to be!! I hate how they can't release it until after Eclipse comes out!! They also asked about the Hot/angry Edward. (I assume they meant the "I kissed Bella" clip. Which I don't particularly like but they said in the question they asked they said some fans do like it.)
Penny~ I'm actually quite torn by this change. Much of Edward's strength comes from his self control and recasting Edward as losing that control just seems so amazingly wrong. It's as Bella says in that moment. We all knew that his calm was much more menacing than any shouting could ever be. His quiet fury was much more deadly, just like his confrontation with Victoria at the end. He didn't go ape-shiza and attack her and Riley. It was the calm cool demeaner of a superior tactician at play. Having Edward goaded into a reaction just seems so completely opposite of what we know of him.
At the same time, a part of me likes it. It's that part of me that desperately understood Bella's words in the tent after she kissed the dog, the part of me that understands why she wants him to be angry, to be spiteful. No matter what we know in our hearts to be true, sometimes seeing it put into action is a completely different feeling. Bella knows Edward loves her. But seeing him fight for her is very different from know that he loves her and wants her. Seeing and hearing him lose that control, knowing that it her connection to him and his feelings for her that trump that herculean self-restraint...Yes, there's definitely a reason why FierceWard is so hot. Think about the amount of emotion and passion it would have to take to ruffle those feathers.
