The Twilight Saga: New Moon

Corrected entry: The bay window that Bella sits in during the months after Edward leaves does not exist in her room in Twilight. There is no bay window on the second floor until New Moon.


Correction: There actually is a bay window on the 2nd floor, which you can see in the opening scenes of Twilight, when Charlie brings Bella to Forks. It appears as though she has 2 windows in her bedroom, from the outside.

Corrected entry: When Bella is flying to Italy they show a Virgin America airplane. Virgin America only flies within certain cities in the US. Virgin Atlantic flies from the US to Europe.


Correction: They may not be flying straight to Italy. They may be flying somewhere else in America to catch a connecting flight to Italy, as they do in the book (they change flights in New York).


Corrected entry: They deliberately prohibited the use of red until the Volterra Bella running scene, since the red signified blood and danger and was such an important part of the movie. (Audio commentary.)

Correction: Not true. Red is visible on the cover of Bella's copy of Romeo and Juliet, and she also has a red blanket on her bed when Edward comes into her room near the beginning of the movie.

Corrected entry: In the school parking lot, Bella is taking a picture of Angela, Eric, Mike and Jessica. The next shot is viewing the picture from the back of the camera, however, it is no longer Bella's hand holding the camera, it appears to be the hand of an older person.

Correction: On the DVD extras,they show the crew actually do the shot. You can see that it is really Kristen Stewart's (Bella's) hand.

Corrected entry: In the cliff diving scenes, the water as seen from a bird's eye view looks like a very bad Photoshop effect. Also, the wave that crashes over Bella is very bad visually due to rushed CGI.


Correction: The wave that crashes over Bella isn't even CGI, it was done in a huge water tank, as can be seen on the DVD extras.


Corrected entry: When Bella is doing homework while waiting on Jacob to call her back, Charlie is watching a PAC-10 conference football game. It is Spring and well past January Bowl games, so there should be a basketball game on, as football is out of season.

Correction: With all the channels that you can get on your TV, you can find a repeated football game on at almost any time of the year.


Corrected entry: In Volterra Edward and Bella went inside the clock tower holding each other and left the door opened, a few minutes later Dimitri and Felix appeared and short after that Alice had to break the door's lock to enter the building but no one closed the doors before.


Correction: They back through the open door, through the entry, then through another set of open doors into a hall. The locked door Alice comes through is at one end of this hall, Felix and Demetri enter from the other end of the hall.


Corrected entry: Most of the wolves have visible make-up lines on their stomachs to create a "six-pack" effect. Most notably is Sam and his love handles when he is turned to the side and there are no muscle bulges just the demarcated lines.


Correction: Shadows and flab, not makeup. The actors were given a trainer to help them prepare. They have some flab on top of their six packs because they didn't work out as intensively as Taylor, but they aren't fake.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Bella confronts the pack at the reservation, Bella hit Paul in the face and nothing happened to her, she didn't even complain, but when she punched Jacob in Eclipse she got injured and screamed of pain.


Correction: Not because Jacob's a werewolf. She hurt herself because she punched him. She simply slapped Paul.

Corrected entry: They are in Italy, and Bella just saved Edward. Demetri, Jane, and Felix are escorting Bella, Edward, and Alice to Aro. While Edward is putting on the red robe Felix handed him, they all pass through a small tunnel/hallway where Edward sparkles, because of the sunlight shining in through a window. Notice that when the sunlight briefly shines onto Alice, she doesn't sparkle. All vampires are supposed to sparkle in the sunlight.


Correction: Alice does sparkle.


Corrected entry: Jasper's hair is longer than it was in Twilight, however vampires are not supposed to have changing bodies.

Correction: This is never stated in the movies.

Corrected entry: During the scene where Carlisle is sewing up Bella's arm after the birthday party, the camera is showing very close face shots of both Bella and Carlisle. You can plainly see the rims of Bella's contacts, although it is not as easy to see Carlisle's.

Correction: Bella wasn't wearing contacts in this movie, they used CGI instead this time.

Corrected entry: When Edward and Bella kiss at the beginning in the parking lot, Edward's forehead creases. However, he is explained as being rock hard.


Correction: Not to himself and other vampires. Therefore, his own forehead muscles would be capable of forming furrows on his own brow.

Corrected entry: In the birthday party scene, the first shot of Jasper show his eyes to be the correct golden color, even as he first starts to run towards Bella. But in all subsequent shots during his attempted attack, you can see his eye color has changed to black.


Correction: This is not a mistake this is deliberate - the vampires' eyes change colour when they get thirsty. Jasper's eyes would have changed because at the beginning of the scene he was under control but once he smelled the blood he would become instantly thirsty.

Corrected entry: When Bella and Jacob are driving to go ride their motorcycles, you can see a reflection of the trees moving in the car windows. By the reflection, the car should be moving backwards, since the trees are moving forwards.

Correction: Already submitted and corrected.

White Lock

Corrected entry: In the scene where Bella meets Laurent in the meadow, the grass is brown. This indicates that it has dried out from lack of rain. It is almost constantly raining in Forks, so technically the grass should be green.



Correction: Grass doesn't only turn brown from drying out; it also turns brown in the winter. The meadow scene happens in the winter - sometime in February, by my calculations - so it makes perfect sense for the grass to be brown at that time.


Corrected entry: When Bella is depressed after Edward leaving, and she's looking out the window, in September, there are trick-or-treaters. And in October, Charlie's raking leaves. Halloween is not in September so why are there trick-or-treaters ?


Correction: The depressed scene does not start in September. The first month Bella is shown sitting in the window is October so it is correct to show the trick or treaters and the following months are therefore also correctly depicted.


Corrected entry: When Edward and Bella reunite in Italy, he supposedly has not "eaten" for a long time, so his eyes should be blank, as indicated by the movie Twilight and all the books, but his eyes remain gold throughout the movie.

Correction: At no point in the film is it specified that Edward has gone without food for any length of time. Discrepancies between book and film are not movie mistakes.

Corrected entry: During the breakup scene, you see a blue marker between Edwards feet in his wideshots.


Correction: After reviewing on DVD, in this scene there is only one wideshot and in it there is no blue marker at Edward's feet. There is something that could possibly be a bit of bark by his feet, but it is brown and earthy in color, definitely not a tape marker.

Corrected entry: When Edward takes Bella to the forest to tell her he is leaving, Bella's hair hangs down her back. But in a following shot most of it is tucked up in the hood of her coat.


Hamster Premium member

Correction: I looked but couldn't spot this - can you be more specific about the later shot?

Corrected entry: At Bella's birthday party, when Alice is taking her and Edward's picture, you notice that the camera is not turned on.

Correction: The camera is on. The whole back of the camera is lit up.

Corrected entry: When Charlie is talking to Bella at her truck about her going back to Jacksonville, the large wisps of hair on Bella's left ear keep changing position and alternate from not / blowing in the wind.

Hamster Premium member

Correction: Wind doesn't constantly blow, it usually has gusts and moments where it does not seem to blow at all.

Corrected entry: During the meadow scene flashback with Edward and Bella, Bella's foot is missing. She's lying next to Edward and the camera is circling above them. Her legs are slightly crossed and one of her feet is missing (and covered by the meadow backdrop).

Correction: The (left) foot isn't missing, although it is covered - by Bella's other leg. She's lying with her left foot on angle (to support her leg being slightly upright) with most of it covered by her right calf/ankle {see roughly 59:29}. If you freeze the frame, you can even see the white line of her shoe from above.

Corrected entry: During the scene where Alice jumps over the rail to invite Bella to her birthday party, You see Jasper concentrating and Bella says "mo fair using mood manipulation." However throughout the Twilight series they state that no vampire can use their "powers" to affect Bella.

Correction: Actually that's false! They mention NUMEROUS times that since Jasper is using a different method, he is able to influence her moods. This even causes Bella to be very frightened during Breaking Dawn. Specifically, they can't use MENTAL powers on Bella. Jasper influences her actual metabolic systems and can calm her that way. Alice does nothing to her mentally to see her future. But Edward and Aro's mind reading and Jane's pain abilities are done in her mind, so they have no effect on her.

Corrected entry: In the first scene in the school parking lot, Edward's car is black. But in the last scene where Bella, Jacob, and Edward are in the forest, Edward's car is visibly silver as it is in the first movie and the books.

Correction: The Cullens are wealthy so Edward can have more than one vehicle. The book should not be compared to the movie; not a valid mistake.

Corrected entry: When Bella and Jacob are driving in Bella's truck to go test out the motorbikes for the first time, they alternate between driving backwards and forwards. When you see the forest passing through Bella's window, they appear to be driving forwards. However, when you see the reflection of the trees in the windshield when the camera is on Bella and Jacob, they appear to be driving backwards. When they close-up on Jacob and Bella separately through the windshield, it is extremely obvious that they are driving backwards.

Correction: At no point do they drive backward. The reflection of the trees is consistent with moving forward, and the landscape visible through the windows always moves in the right direction.

Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie, Bella, Edward, Alice and Jasper appear in school. Jasper was a senior in Twilight and graduated the June before New Moon takes place. He should not be in the school scenes at all.

Correction: It is never actually stated that Jasper was a senior the year before - that is only in the book. And following the Twilight movie, Jasper is on the biology field trip with Alice & Edward - so it can be assumed that for movie purposes he is a junior, even though in the books he was a senior.

Corrected entry: In the opening scene where Bella dreams that she is a grandmother her "reflection" has a closed mouth, while she has an open one. Also her reflection has raised eyebrows and she doesn't when flitting between cuts.


Correction: It's not supposed to match up until both sides are "Gran". It's the whole point of Bella not seeing it's her until that moment - what she sees isn't what she's doing.

Corrected entry: When Bella and Jacob are talking in her room, she is wearing a light yellow top, and is still seen wearing it during the dream sequence in the woods with Edward, Jacob, the Wolf (Sam), etc. Then, as she abruptly awakes, she is in a dark green top. It was assumed by most it was the same night, so the shirt color magically changed while she was asleep.


Correction: Maybe she changed out of it for bed and then had the "DREAM" that she was wearing a yellow top. Dreams are not indicative of a mistake.

Corrected entry: When Alice enters the Volturi scene, she is wearing a scarf around her neck. She then begins to take it off throughout the scene. The following shot, when they begin to go to see the Volturi leaders, they go down a flight of stairs. During this shot and for the rest of the Volturi scene's and the movie, Alice does not have her scarf.

Correction: They show her taking it off and then she doesn't have it. As long as it doesn't instantaneously reappear this isn't a mistake.

Corrected entry: In the montage scenes where we see Bella's depression, when the camera is circling her, the camera man is shown in the mirror (twice) behind her.


Correction: We never see the camera man in either mirror. There are two items that can be mistaken for a person - the knob at the top of the stairwell seen through her door, and when the lamp jumps into focus as we revolve to fully see the mirror. The camera was on a track and moved without a "camera man."

Edward Cullen: I just don't know how to live in a world where you don't exist.



During the paper cut scene, when Bella is thrown against the table, there are 5 vases of flowers and 3 sets of candles. After she hits the table she lands against one of the vases and knocks the 2nd one to the floor, but the next shot shows only one vase left upright.



You can see Volterra's tower and the red-cloaked revelers from the festival of San Marco on the cover of Bella's copy of Romeo and Juliet when she wakes up in her bedroom. (Per director Chris Weitz.)
