Corrected entry: During the baseball scene, Carlisle's scarf changes from plain gray to gray and black striped. It also goes from hanging loose to wound around his neck, then back to hanging loose.


Correction: THis is not true. THe second part is true, but the first part isn't. It just seems grey because the camera is not focused on him and the colours blur together.


Corrected entry: When Jacob Black comes to Bella's house with Billy Black, Edward Cullen had just fixed the front side of Bella's car. Jacob Black can quickly see the fix, though it is obscured by Bella standing in the way, and also he seems to be checking out the back side of the car.


Correction: The dented part of the truck was actually over the back tire. That's why Jacob was looking in that direction.


Corrected entry: When Bella is asking Edward how he knew where she was in the restaurant, you can see the outline of her brown contacts.


Correction: Nothing in the movie ever reveals that the character of Bella doesn't wear contacts. Bella could easily wear contacts herself.


Corrected entry: It is explained in the second movie, the whole treaty between the Cullens and the wolves. If one of the Cullens bites a human, the treaty is off and the wolves can attack the Cullens. That treaty was forged generations ago, so why was the treaty not off when Dr. Cullen bit all of his "children"?

Correction: Carlisle only bit Esme, Edward, Rosalie and Emmett, and THAT was all before the treaty was made. He hadn't bitten anyone since. Alice and Jasper were created by other vampires and joined with the Cullen family after they had left Forks the first time.


Corrected entry: Early in the movie, Bella is sat around the table with her friends as they teasingly say, "My girlfriend!" Then one of the boys runs up behind her and kisses her on the cheek. If you watch Bella's reaction, she barely even flinches. She has only been a student at the school a short time. Don't you think this is an odd under reaction for someone who has just had wet lips of a total stranger pressed on them from behind?


Correction: Matter of opinion. Everyone has their own personality and their own reactions to social situations. Her reaction is no more a mistake than is the guy kissing her in the first place.

Corrected entry: In the Ballet Studio, when James bites Bella's left arm, there is nothing on it, but, when Edward is sucking the venom out, there is a bracelet. Look at her arm when James bites it, then you'll first notice it just after Edward throws James against the mirror. (01:38:50 - 01:41:15)

Correction: Have another look. Bella is indeed wearing the narrow silver cuff bracelet (open back with two ends) when James bites her. As her palm is facing up, one end of the cuff bracelet is beside his mouth and the other end is visible beside his ring finger. The cuff bracelet may be easy to miss because the open back is at the center of her wrist, and it's rather dimly lit.

Corrected entry: When Bella asks Edward to pull over to discover that her dad's cruiser is still at the police station due to Waylon's death, Edward turns his wheel to the left when, it's a right turn.

Correction: Edward is making a right turn on the road when they spot the flashing police lights (you can tell the car is rounding a corner). This would place the police station on their left once they completed the turn. It is after this right turn that Bella asks Edward to pull in to the station. At this point, the station IS on the left, so his turning the wheel that way would not be a mistake.


Corrected entry: In the baseball scene when Edward Cullen is in the field, the first hit goes far into the forest at an incredible velocity. Edwards gets the ball and throws it back. Carlisle takes a swing and the ball seems to fly at an equal speed (maybe even faster considered he's the oldest and strongest in the family). Edward and Emmett jumps up to catch the ball but collide midair and fall to the ground. When filming the two brothers on the ground, the ball for some reason drops only a few feet behind them. Not exactly coherent laws of physics.


Correction: Carlisle is not the strongest, Emmett is, and there's no guarantee he hit it at the same angle and rate that Edward did on his hit. Much like mortal baseball, just because the ball seems to be going as fast doesn't mean it is, and the angle, wind, etc, all affect how it travels. Edward and Emmett colliding has the ability in and of itself to change the atmosphere around them, changing the ball's velocity.

White Lock

Corrected entry: In the lab scene, the stuffed bird behind Edward moves several times between shots.

Correction: The bird does not actually move, the camera angle just changes several times.


Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie, you see a plane flying out. Assuming Bella is on this plane, Charlie would have picked her up from an airport. When Charlie takes Bella's bags out of the car trunk, there are no airline tags on her baggage.

Correction: Much can be done offscreen. The tags could have simply been removed and chucked in the garbage, on their way out to the parking lot.


Corrected entry: During the prom scene, when Edward and Bella are walking in, it shows Victoria playing a game before it shows her watching Edward and Bella dancing outside in the promenade. She's got the same hair, fur shawl, dress, and necklace as she does when she's watching them dance.


Correction: How is this a mistake? She arrived before them, awaiting their arrival.


Corrected entry: In the baseball scene, when Edward and Emmett run towards each other to catch the ball, Emmett very obviously jumps on a trampoline just before he and Edward collide.

Correction: Unless you can see a trampoline (which you can't), this isn't a mistake. The vampires in these stories are different than any others and most significantly, they move like no other, including jumping and moving forward with amazing speed.


Corrected entry: To cleanse Bella's blood, Edward sucks and drinks Bella's blood, but later in the hospital his eyes aren't red. Earlier in the film it is stated that drinking human blood makes vampires' eyes turn red.


Correction: When *regularly* drinking human blood, not the three pints or so from a 5ft 5 - 5ft 7 girl. This is also confirmed in the book of the series Breakign Dawn, (SPOILER WARNING) when Bella's eyes are red it states that her eyes will remain red and eventually dilute because most of the blood in her system is still her own human blood. Meaning that human blood has to be regularly drank to maintain the red eye colour.


Corrected entry: When Bella is in the hospital (after her encounter with James) her mother comes in and explains what happened. She says that Bella had fallen down two flights of stairs and went through a window, which explains all of her concussions except for the bite mark on her arm. You can tell that people knew that there was a bite mark on her arm because it was all bandaged up.


Correction: Bella's mother was informed of a fictional account of what happened to Bella. Having a bandage on her arm doesn't interfere or contradict the story that she fell down the stairs.


Corrected entry: During the Volleyball scene on Bella's first day, when she hits Mike Newton's head, look closely, in the background a little girl runs across the court, she must be about 8. In high school? Perhaps one of the crew's kid?

Correction: Or a child that lives very near the school that happened by? Or is visiting the school of her teen sibling with a parent who is occupied inside and left her to play outside? The film doesn't indicate the child IS a student there, and a child in the area isn't a mistake all by itself.


Corrected entry: When Bella and Edward are in the forest, Edward unbuttons his shirt to show Bella what he looks like in the sun, but when Bella follows him after he leaves the sun spot in the next scene, his shirt is buttoned.


Correction: It has been shown that these vampires move at incredible speeds. He could have rebuttoned it.

Corrected entry: When Bella gets Rosalie out during the softball game, look at Carlisle behind them, its so not him, must be his double. (01:17:00)


Correction: I have watched this scene and as far as i can tell it is the actor in the backround. Why would there be any need of a stunt double when he is simply in the background cheering on Rosalie for the home run?


Corrected entry: In the scene when we see Bella leaning on the hood of her car waiting for Edward to show up so that she can confront him, we see Jasper and Rosalie pull up in their cars. Between the wide shot and the closeup you can see that Rosalie opens the door of her red car twice. (00:13:20)

Correction: Actually it looks as if she just opens the door, but doesn't push it open, and then in the next shoot she opens it all the way.


Corrected entry: In the scene after Bella tells Edward she trusts him, he jumps into a tree, explains about his family's hunting habits, then hangs off of one of the branches. In the first shot of his position, he has both hands up on branches on either side of his arm. In the next shot, one arm is at his side and the other is up on the branch. Then in the next shot, both hands are back on the branches on either side of him.

Correction: Vampires move very quickly. Edward could be trying to scare Bella. That is why he moves like this on the branch.


Corrected entry: When Bella is talking to Edward at the salad bar, Edward puts his hand on the top of the bar for a second. In this shot, you can see sweat marks under his arm, though vampires don't sweat.

Correction: We are never told in the movie that vampires do not sweat. And it has been speculated that vampires may get flushed skin under certain circumstances, perhaps Ed is 'sweating' because he's nervous around Bella?

Continuity mistake: When Bella is in the hospital, in the close-up of her face, the breathing tubes are right by her eyes, but when the shot is further from her face, the tubes are on her cheeks. (01:38:20)

Trivia: Bella drops the apple in the cafeteria when she gives her theories on what Edward is. When Edward bounces the apple back up from his foot, the way that his hand catches the apple is the cover of the book.

More trivia for Twilight

Question: Near the end of the movie, at the prom, when Bella and Edward first walk in, Bella spots Jessica and signals something to her with her hand going across her chest. What was Bella signalling to Jessica?


Chosen answer: Earlier, when the girls were shopping for prom dresses in Port Angeles, Jessica commented that the low-cut dress she was trying on made her boobs "look good." She is wearing that same dress at the prom, and Bella is gesturing and then giving a "thumbs up" that Jessica's cleavage does look good. Jessica mouths back, "I know."
