Trivia: Before Twilight, Emile Hirsch and Kristen Stewart worked together in a film, Into the Wild.

Interestingly enough, also in that film was Nikki Reed, who would later play Rosalie in Twilight.

Trivia: In the restaurant scene you can tell that one of Edward's 'pauses' is sped up during his conversation with Bella. His eyes are downcast then flick up super fast to meet Bella's gaze. Although I doubt that this is to show his "vampire super speed" its still interesting to spot.

Trivia: When Bella first arrives at Charlie's house, note the wolf picture on the wall in Bella's bedroom. This is meant to foreshadow the werewolves that appear in the next movie. (Confirmed by the director, Catherine Hardwicke, in the DVD commentary.)

Trivia: When Edward tells Bella he is going to bring her over to his house, he says "You're worried about it." When he says "worried," you can hear his British accent.

Trivia: When Bella is researching on the internet about vampires, she clicks an India link. A picture comes up of a 'vampire', but in fact it is a picture of the Devil from the Codex Gigas, or the 'Devil's Bible' as it is known.

Trivia: Stephenie Meyer (on the bonus features DVD) discusses how she wishes she had thought of putting the dream sequence in her book that is in the movie. When Bella dreams of Edward in her bedroom, he is in the room. Bella immediately sits up and switches on the light, and he is not in the room. The audience knows that Edward was in the bedroom with Bella, and Stephenie Meyer says, "Oh, I should have done that!" in the book.

Trivia: Kirsten Stewart was allowed to choose the song "Flightless Bird" by the band Iron and Wine for the prom scene. Catherine Hardwicke said it is very rare for an actress to suggest a piece of music that would actually make it into the movie.

Trivia: The director Catherine Hardwicke added the armadillo in the background of the biology class. It is a tribute to her home state of Texas. The armadillo is in the scene where Bella and Edward sit together in Biology class for the first time where he looks mad at her.

Trivia: When Bella is in the hospital at the end of the movie, the television in her room is showing the fire at the ballet studio. In that scene, the television also shows Taylor Lautner (Jacob), sitting and talking with Kristen Stewart (Bella). It is probably a clip from an interview.

Trivia: In a cafeteria scene, Eric is saying something about a pyramid. This is taken from a "rock opera" produced by director Catherine Hardwicke in her college days.

Trivia: In the hospital scene near the end of the film, the picture on the wall above where Edward is "sleeping" is a picture of Bella in the Ballet Studio.

More quotes from 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."
