Continuity mistake: When Edward's "sleeping" in the hospital, look at the wall he is leaning against. In the closer shot the table on the left is part way across a window with a blind on it. In the wider shot this window's nowhere to be seen.


Continuity mistake: While Bella is hanging out inside the van at the La Push beach and Jacob and his friends come to hang out, Jacob turns to grab a tub of Red Vines. In some shots he has the tub next to him, but in others he doesn't. Also you can see that the guy next to Sam takes a bite of a Red Vine in one shot, and in the next he does not have the Red Vine in his hand anymore. (00:31:30)

Continuity mistake: The A 1 bottle changes from label in to label out in the diner scene with Bella and her dad.


Continuity mistake: When Bella is at the salad bar in the lunchroom, she knocks over the apple and Edward catches it. In the next shot, neither Edward nor Bella have it.


Continuity mistake: In the scene when Bella opens the book of Quileute legends, the wide shot shows there are no pictures on the pages she turns to. In the close-up shot, when she says, "cold one," there are pictures on both pages. This couldn't be possible, considering that she doesn't turn pages from the wide shot to the close up. (00:45:30)


Continuity mistake: When Tyler throws a piece of licorice at Bella to get her to come over to them, Jessica is standing to the very far left (from Bella's view) facing Bella and trying to talk to Mike.

Continuity mistake: It's nearing the end of the movie. Edward and Bella are dancing under the gazebo. Edward lifts Bella so she is dancing on his feet. The camera later pans onto both of their full bodies dancing. Bella's feet are not on Edward's and she is dancing just fine. It later pans onto both of their full bodies dancing. Bella is on Edward's feet again, dancing.


Continuity mistake: When Bella and Edward are at the salad bar talking about Bella's theories, you can see the table with Bella's friends in the background. If you watch her friends, all of their positions and various actions noticeably change, between the following consecutive shots. (00:29:35)

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Bella is in Port Angeles trying to get away form the guys who are taunting her, in one shot, as she is walking through the parking lot, they show two guys walking up from behind her and the other two guys walking toward her. In the shot where the camera shows the two walking toward her, you can see two people dressed in black standing on the deck in the background, and it looks like they go in for a big kiss. The next time the deck in shown in the shot the two people are not there.


Continuity mistake: While Edward and Bella are talking on the school campus on the white bench, the school bell rings. The black boy and the white girl who are sitting behind Edward and Bella hear it and they walk away. But in the next close-up scene, they are still sitting and talking, and in the next shot, when Edward and Bella get up, they are gone again.

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Edward is explaining his history to Bella and they are sitting under some branches in the rain, from each wide shot and closeup the position of Edward's wet fringe (bangs) is completely different. (00:57:05)

Continuity mistake: In the scene in the woods where Bella tells Edward she knows what he is: she drops her backpack by a tree, and in one shot you can see it, but the next you can't only because it's turned upside down so you can't see the red. But it's still there. And in other scene you can see it again, right side up.


Continuity mistake: In the first scene in the cafeteria, when Bella suggests that Angie should run an editorial on "speedo padding on the swim team", she then holds up her food to take a bite with her right hand. However, in the reverse-angle shot, when Angie says "actually, that's a good one", Bella's right hand is seen placed on top of her left arm. Then when it cuts back to Bella, she is again holding the food up to her mouth. (00:08:30)


Continuity mistake: When Bella and Edward are coming back from Port Angeles and see that their dads are still at the Police station, Edward starts to pull in and there's what might be an ambulance in the entrance. The next shot shows a semi-close-up of Bella asking Edward to pull in, which he does again, and this time there is no car in the entrance.


Continuity mistake: In the scene where Edward goes back to the highway from rescuing Bella. We see he stops the car when he turns, when the camera changes we see the area around them moving but we never heard or see the car accelerate.

More trivia for Twilight

Question: I wanted to ask that, when James had bitten Bella, then the venom/poison was left in Bella's arm and Edward had to suck it out later, but why didn't Edward leave the venom in Bella's arm? They both (James and Edward) sucked Bella's blood and James left venom, but Edward did not. How is that possible?

Answer: Edward wants Bella to remain human and experience life from the human point of view. As for them sucking her blood... James actually bit Bella, thus causing venom to enter to blood stream. Edward did not bite Bella; he simply sucked on the open wound to remove the venom from Bella's system.
