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: 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.

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.

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.

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.
