Twilight

Corrected entry: In the outdoor scene where Edward explains how Carlisle changed them, the scene goes from it being cloudy, to pouring rain, and finally to them being completely dry, as if the rain never happened. (00:58:55)

Correction: This scene is actually different days/moments that Edward and Bella are discussing their lives in an attempt to show the depth of their relationship, if you look closely they have different clothes on.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Edward was bitten by his father he was bit on the right side when the mark is on the left.

Correction: The mark on the left side of Edward's neck is a birthmark, and not a bite mark.

1

Corrected entry: In the scene where Edward pops the ding out of Bella's truck, he has first jumped onto the roof of the truck and startled her. After they talk, he leaves, and gets in his car which is right next to her truck, so she would have seen him drive up.

Correction: I thought she was being surprised that he jumped on her car. Not a very "human" thing to do.

Corrected entry: When Edward and Bella are talking in the forest after he has shown her what he looks like in sunlight, his ears are red from the cold. As vampires are already cold, his ears wouldn't change colour.

Correction: In the book, Bella comments to Edward that he still looks "flushed" from his previous day’s hunting. There’s nothing in the movie to contradict that environmental factors such as cold weather, physical exertion, and even emotions can cause slight color variations in a vampire’s skin.

Corrected entry: In the very last scene where Edward & Bella are at the prom and he kisses her neck, you can see that Bella is whiter than Edward, when Edward should be unbelievably white.

Correction: Spoiler alert: The books mention a number of times about how exceptionally pale Bella's skin is, even when she first moves from sunny Phoenix. This (and a few other characteristics) appears to foreshadow her eventually becoming a vampire.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Bella is being attacked after the bookstore, there are two people in the background. Later there are four attackers. Who are the other people?

Correction: The two other people were a young couple. They seemed rather absorbed with one another romantically and had probably moved on without noticing that Bella was in trouble.

Corrected entry: When Bella gets out of her car, a crew member is reflected on the glass window of her car.

dell

Correction: When? Where? She gets out of her car a lot in this film.

Corrected entry: On Bella's first day at Forks High, the class sequence goes Gym, lunch and Biology. On the day Edward returns to school, Bella walks into Biology and Mike says hello, dripping rain on her from a hat as though it's first period. She would have already seen him in gym and lunch, and she would have seen Edward at lunch. (00:06:50 - 00:16:20)

Whisper292

Correction: It could have rained in between classes. Maybe Mike came to school late that day. Also some schools have rotating periods that changed throughout the week.

Corrected entry: When Taylor tells the story of the Cullens, the flashback shows Carlisle, Edward, Emmett and Rosalie. Where is Esme then? Edward explained to Bella that Carlisle first turned him into a vampire before turning Esme in the movie.

Correction: So they don't show Esme. Doesn't mean she wasn't around. At any rate, in the books she becomes a vampire before Rosalie and Emmett, but no such thing is said in the films. If they decide to change that relatively minor detail that's no mistake.

Corrected entry: When Bella storms into the house after the baseball game, she says, 'Robert, I said just leave me alone.' She was meant to call him Edward, which is his character's name.

becusha

Correction: Sorry, but you are incorrect. I've listened to this at least half-a-dozen times, and Bella definitely says, "Edward," not "Robert" when she storms into the house.

Corrected entry: Vampires don't eat human food; but in the scene in the cafeteria after the greenhouse scene, the camera zooms in on Edward picking at his food. Look to his left and you will see Emmett chewing on a rice crispy treat he was playing with in the shot before. (00:29:25)

barefootduchess

Correction: Vampires can ingest food but are unable to digest it or receive any nourishment from eating. Edward and the other Cullen kids only nibble at or pretend to eat food or leave it untouched while at school so they can appear to be (as much as possible) "normal." Anything they do eat, must be regurgitated later.

Corrected entry: In the "edible art" scene where the Twilight book cover is depicted, as Bella and Edward move around the salad bar, the clock on the wall in the background reads 7 o'clock when it is lunchtime.

Correction: The clock did not change during the scene, which means it was broken, which means this is not a mistake.

Corrected entry: When Bella gets out of her car you can see a crew member on the glass window.

Correction: Which time is Bella getting out of her truck (not a car) can you see this? If it's at the school, it's certainly possible that the reflection could be a student, a teacher, or some other staff person rather than a film crew member that is reflected. How can you tell it's a crew member and not some random person standing nearby? Is he/she wearing technical gear or holding film equipment that identifies them as a crew member? Sorry, but you need to be more specific for it to qualify as a mistake.

Corrected entry: When James is tracking Bella, Edward tells Rosalie to rub the tree with Bella's coat. But then when Edward says, 'He's figured it out', Rosalie does not have Bella's coat on.

Correction: They had been running for quite a while by the time Edward knows James has figured out their diversion -- plenty of time for Rosalie to remove the jacket, which she was carrying at that point.

Corrected entry: In the first diner scene, Bella gets the ketchup for her burger but doesn't put any on.

Correction: She tries, but the squeeze bottle was empty. Which is why Charlie didn't reach for it after she put it down, even though they both wanted ketchup.

Corrected entry: When Edward pushes James into the mirrors, James doesn't have blood on the right side of his lower lip. But when Edward bites him, the blood is there. That can't be right, because vampires can't bleed.

Correction: It's never stated in the film that vampires don't bleed, so this isn't a mistake.

Corrected entry: When Bella comes downstairs to leave Charlie's house for the prom, her dress is a light purple, but once inside the prom her dress is suddenly a teal blue color.

Correction: It's the same dress, and in the DVD commentary, the actors also mention how the color looks different. Colors change with various lighting effects (indoor or outdoor) and different types of film may have been used for shooting the interior and exterior shots, which causes subtle color changes. These are not mistakes, just the by-product of filmmaking.

Corrected entry: When Edward is telling Bella about his family, it's raining, they are under a tree and he's wet. But then they aren't under the tree anymore and he is dry.

Correction: This isn't a mistake because this scene is actually taking place over a few days. If you look again you will see that their clothes also change giving the indication that it is taking place at different times.

1

Corrected entry: In the scene where Edward rushes in to save Bella from the truck about to crush her, he knocks her down but holds her up, then he lets go and jumps over the back of the cars. In the next scene when Bella is in the Emergency room, Carlisle says, "You hit your head," but she never did.

midorimentality

Correction: Edward and Carlisle both tell Bella she hit her head -- because they want her to believe the "unreal" aspects of the accident and how Edward saved her is because she hit her head. This is not a mistake.

Corrected entry: When Edward drives Bella to school, she looks out the window and it is dark and rainy, but when they arrive at school it is a lot lighter and Edward comes out of the Volvo wearing sunglasses, stating that it is a sunny day. But this could not be possible: Edward should be sparkling.

replayheat64

Correction: School starts in the morning, while the sun is still rising during part of the school year. So it makes sense that it got lighter. Edward never says it's a sunny day, he's just wearing glasses. And there's no reason he shouldn't.

Twilight mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: When Bella pulls up in her truck for her first day at Forks High, as the camera pans from her truck as she parks it into shot, you can see the camera and boom reflected in the triangular window. (00:05:35)

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?

Molly

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."
