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.

Trivia: At the end of the movie when Bella is sitting on the bench prior to prom, Jacob offers to help her since her foot is in a cast. Edward says to Bella "I leave you alone for two minutes and the wolves descend." This is a veiled reference to the fact that Jacob is indeed a wolf, which you find out in the second book "New Moon." (01:44:15)

Trivia: Stephenie Meyer, author of the Twilight series, got the idea for Twilight from a dream she had back in 2003. She dreamt of a girl and a boy sitting in a meadow, talking about their impossible love for each other. The girl was just a normal, human girl. The guy was outrageously beautiful, sparkly, and obviously a vampire. It is because of this single dream that A) The Twilight series came to be and B) Meyer's vampires sparkle in the sunlight.

Trivia: When Bella and Charlie are eating at the diner, there is a dark-haired woman in a red sweater sitting at the counter with a laptop - this is author of the Twilight series, Stephenie Meyer. (01:12:15)

Trivia: When Mike and the rest of the boys at Forks High School are trying to get Bella's attention in the lunch room, Jessica remarks that Bella is like "a shiny new toy." This is a direct line from the first chapter of Midnight Sun, a book "in the works" by Stephenie Meyer. Midnight Sun is Twilight told from Edward's perspective. The first chapter and rough draft that leaked over the Internet are posted on Stephenie Meyer's website.

Trivia: When Bella is invited to the Cullen's house for the first time, she and Edward head for the stairway. Against the wall is a cross lying at an angle. Though they do not discuss it in the film, in the book Edward explains to Bella the history of the cross and how Carlisle acquired it. It's clear that vampires do not fear crosses.

Trivia: After Bella wakes up in the hospital and Edward says he should leave her, Kristen Stewart starts stuttering, "No, no, no, no no!" She actually had a monologue she was supposed to perform but got so caught up in the scene she could only stutter. (01:41:00)

Trivia: When Bella is looking up the Quileute mythology book she finds a listing for a bookstore in Port Angeles. Under this tab there is a list of other places to get the book, like, including "Little Brown" which is the publishing company for the "Twilight" series.

Trivia: In the books, Edwards is described as being Bella's "Vampire Angel". In the scenes shot in the science lab, Edward is sitting with his shoulders hunched and behind him there is a stuffed white owl. In some shots you can't see the body of the owl and it gives the impression that Edward has white wings.

Trivia: When Bella, Edward and Renee are in the hospital, in the background on the TV past Renee, look closely - it's footage from a few scenes earlier during the attack in the ballet studio.

Trivia: During Comic Con, one of the audience members asked if anything spontaneous occurred during filming. Catherine Hardwicke responded that when Rob was doing the kissing scene, he got a little passionate and fell on the floor. You see Stephenie Meyer next to him laughing and Rob looks chagrined. (Special features DVD.)

Trivia: For the baseball scene, on the Twilight "Special Features" DVD they discuss how the characters had to use clear plastic Christmas ornaments (the kind used for crafts) in place of actual baseballs since they didn't use gloves (vampires would not use gloves!). Then they used CGI to change its appearance and made it look like a baseball.

Trivia: At the end of the movie, when the credits are rolling, you see Rob and Kristen walking and then falling on their backs in the grass in the forest. This forest scene was deleted from the movie. What happens after they fall back is that Kristen asks Rob if he really wants a taste of her blood. He says yes. She offers her finger (right hand) and puts it in his mouth. He bites it and when she reacts a little, he calls her a "fragile little human." According to the director, Catherine Hardwicke, it is Kristen's favorite scene.

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."
