Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) and Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) are bent over an antique light blue motorcycle. Jacob wears jeans, a brown t-shirt, and his hair is long. As Bella sits on the motorcycle, Jacob guides her hands (touching!) over the handles. "Brake. Clutch. Gas," he reminds her. Bella revs the engine. "Slowly release the clutch," says Jacob.
Suddenly, Bella sees the translucent apparition of Edward, a concerned look on his face, standing in front of her. We can see him, but also see through him. Bella takes off on the bike.
As she zooms down the road, Bella gains speed. She zooms by another apparition of Edward, standing in her path. She speeds by another. Losing focus, Bella swerves and falls from the bike, hitting her head on a rock.
Jacob speeds over to Bella on his own bike, coming to a stop with a flourish. He hops off the bike and rushes to Bella's side. She is bewildered, and blood gushes from a gash on her forehead.
"Are you trying to get yourself killed?" Jacob asks. Bella apologizes for the blood, but it doesn't bother Jacob.
He takes a step back, the camera following his every move. Jacob strips off his shirt, revealing a six-pack, and bends down to dab Bella's wound with it. Their faces come very close.
"You're so beautiful," she tells him. Emotion flashes across his face.
END SCENE. TWILIGHTERS SCREAM.
Alice and Bella are winding through the streets of Volterra, slowed by massive crowds of townspeople in red robes, celebrating the festival. Bella jumps out of the car.
"You're the only one he can't see. He'll be under the clock tower. Go!" says Alice.
Bella races through the crowded city. We see her at times in slow motion.
She fights her way through the crowd, stopping at the fountain in the middle of the square. In slow motion, she looks up to see Edward, slowly unbuttoning his shirt just moments away from revealing himself in the sunlight. He opens his shirt to expose his pale chest. (And his abs. Very nice abs.)
Bella screams out to Edward. "Stop! Stop! No Edward, don't!"
He takes a step forward.
END SCENE. CROWD GOES WILD.
1:52 Stephen Johnson: Summit Panel is Live! Get ready for Astro Boy, Twilight New Moon and Sorority Row news, people! Rock and/or Roll!
1:53 Stephen Johnson: First off: Astro Boy. This CGI treatment of a Japanese classic cartoon will inspire and delight. Do I sound like a press release?
1:54 Stephen Johnson: Astro Boy news: Charlize Theron and Samuel L. Jackson just announced as voice talent for the film.
1:54 Stephen Johnson: To answer a reader’s question: The Twilighters are VERY loud and have high pitched, squeaky voices!
1:58 Stephen Johnson: Sorority Row stars take the stage. They are very attractive, including Rumer Willis… and that girl from The Hills. This movie is a remake of 1980s slasher flick The House on Sorority Roll…. It’s bad source material, but hey, who doesn’t love a slasher flick.
1:58 Stephen Johnson: We’re checking out the trailer now… it’s got an “I Know What You Did Last Summer” vibe to it.
2:00 Stephen Johnson: To answer some readers’ question: Sadly, there are no video feeds of these panels available. Youll have to rely on my words.
2:00 Stephen Johnson: They are getting right to the Twilight material… The crowd is screaming like it’s the Beatles in 1964. It’s really amazing. Nothing has happened yet, though…
2:01 Stephen Johnson: Just the mention of the word “Twilight” is enough to get people howling at the top of their lungs.
2:01 Stephen Johnson: I’m deaf now.
2:03 Stephen Johnson: The cast is being introduced. Kristen Stewart is here, and Robert Pattinson.
2:05 Stephen Johnson: The director, Chris Weitz, is here.
2:06 Stephen Johnson: Taylor Lautner talks about Jacob Black’s transformation. “He transforms mentally and emotionally, but the hardest was the physical transformation.”
2:06 Stephen Johnson: “I hope you’re pleased when you see the results,” Lautner says. I think the fangirls will be very, very pleased.
2:08 Stephen Johnson: Robert Pattinson says machines do his acting for him. Hmm.
2:09 Stephen Johnson: Special treat for the fans: A clip!
2:10 Stephen Johnson: Radio silence for the clip. Sorry.
2:12 Stephen Johnson: Uh oh…Jacob took off his shirt in the clip and the fans went nuts-o-crazy-go-nuts.
2:13 Stephen Johnson: Fan: Question for Robert Pattinson: Are you going to do any comedy in the future? Rob: I’m not that funny… I can look like an idiot, but I don’t know if I can be witty.
2:15 Stephen Johnson: Fan: What part of you did you have to being out to portray you characters? Answer (Ashley Green) There’s a really intense bond that she has with her family, and I have a bond with my family, so I use that. Kristen: She’s everywhere. Talk about mood swings. But she doesn’t explain herself.
2:16 Stephen Johnson: Taylor: I’m more like Jacob’s pre-transformation side.
2:16 Stephen Johnson: Rob Pattison is up next, to talk about his character.
2:17 Stephen Johnson: Pattinson: “I look a bit like him.”
2:18 Stephen Johnson: Fan (dressed as Dracula): How can I be a better Dracula? Best question ever, but they don’t answer it. See, the questioner may have been pulling some sort of prank, and Twilight is serious business.
2:19 Stephen Johnson: Fan to Rob: Would you ever do open-mic nights for music, ever again? Rob: Yes. I’d love to do it again. It’s good for your soul.
2:20 Stephen Johnson: Fan: Have you seen the New Moon trailer fan reaction videos? And are you afraid? A (director) we’ve seen them, and we can’t be more pleased and tickled…some are very intense in their reactions, and I don’t want to get them mad by doing anything wrong.
2:21 Stephen Johnson: Fan: How is filming in Portland different than Vancouver? A: (Kristen Stewart) There’s a ton more fans now than back then.
2:23 Stephen Johnson: According to the director, there were so many fans in Italy, it became a logistical problem.
2:24 Stephen Johnson: Fan: for Taylor, how was it filming in different weather conditions, half-naked? Taylor: It was cold. There was a day when I was only wearing jean shorts (Cheers from crowd.) It was really really cold, but I’m doing it all for you guys!
2:25 Stephen Johnson: Fan: What was the funniest moment in filming New Moon. Director: I grew attached to having a stick on hand like Gandalf. That was the most unintentionally funny moment.
2:28 Stephen Johnson: Fan: What are you most looking forward to in the upcoming films? Kristen: I’m excited about this intense fight scene we’re supposed to have.Taylor Lautner: The sleeping bag scene.
2:30 Stephen Johnson: Fan: What’s it like working with a different director? How were the 2 directors different? Rob: I liked it. I was a supporting role in this one. Chris (the director) is a seemingly peaceful person, so it was smooth sailing. I knew what I wa doing in this one more than the last one.
2:30 Stephen Johnson: Taylor: He keeps calm. We’re having a great time on set, not stressing at all.
2:34 Stephen Johnson: Fan: Were there any injuries in filming? Chris Weitz: Kristen hurt her ankle, but ther were no deaths. I’m proud that there were no deaths… i wish I could tell you more exciting stories of injuries. I will tell you that Taylor did every single stunt he could get his hands on, except the ones the insurance companies said he couldn’t do.
2:35 Stephen Johnson: Fan (for Ashley) How was it working with the rest of the cast? We all got along. I learned a lot from working with all the different people?
2:36 Stephen Johnson: A fan wants to know how Taylor works out. He says he put on weight for his role, but was over-working himself burning more calorie than he took on.
2:37 Stephen Johnson: I should point out that all questions are interupted by screams of “I love you!” and “You’re awesome!” and “wooo!” at random.
2:38 Stephen Johnson: Robert talks about how is life has become analagous to swimming without drowning.
2:39 Stephen Johnson: The director, Chris Weitz says his last film was, basically, messed up by the studio. Not sure what movie he means… maybe Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist?
2:41 Stephen Johnson: I think the Twighlight: New Moon saga is coming to a close, people… but, before we wrap up, each cast member is talking about the size and scope of the new movie vs. the old one.
2:42 Stephen Johnson: Chris Weitz: The book expands massively from the first to the second. So the key thing was to keep that all cohereent and faithful to the book. To make something grand and beautiful out of this book.
2:42 Stephen Johnson: Rob: Edward’s who character is about restraint, so I always found it difficult to move as the character. So in the new movie, a lot of the shots are set up so that I can move as little a possible. The camera moves more often.
2:43 Stephen Johnson: Rob: the camera movement is moer fluid in the new movie. So even the fight scene I’m in at the end is balletic.
2:44 Stephen Johnson: Taylor: When we were making Twilight, we didn’t know the reaction we were going to get. So we’re really thankful for the reaction we got.
2:45 Stephen Johnson: The cast here is definitely stressing that the new movie will stick close to the book. Twilight fans are notorious for stressing the importance of this!
2:46 Stephen Johnson: Ashley says she was more comfortable in her own skin in this movie. A lot less nervous… She says the fans have really embraced them.
2:46 Stephen Johnson: Chris Weitz is going to show another scene! The fans go insane.
2:47 Stephen Johnson: The scene: Alice and Bella racing to save Edward. You remember that scene right?
2:47 Stephen Johnson: First time this footage has been shown outside of the editing room,.
2:49 Stephen Johnson: The onscreen appearance of Edward (taking off his shirt, natch, destroys all decorum and civility in the room. It’s roar of epic proportions to end the panel. The fans literally rush the stage… There is no riot, however.
2:50 Stephen Johnson: And thus ends the Summit panel. I hope you enjoyed. Hope you liked it!!!!!!!!
When Rotten Tomatoes arrived on the set of The Twilight Saga: New Moon for a second day of observation on the Volturi stage, filming was already underway on a pivotal scene. We'd been promised we'd see wire work, so I immediately guessed that a fight scene was on the docket. Would we see Edward (Robert Pattinson) thrown about by the hulking Volturi guard, Felix? After all, actor Daniel Cudmore (X-Men 3's Colossus) had been spotted on set the previous day, leafing through magazines between scenes.
Perhaps an Edward-Felix fight had been filmed, but it was not while we were on set. In the middle of the Volturi chamber, the scenario was similar to the previous day: Bella (Kristen Stewart), Edward (Pattinson), and Alice (Ashley Greene) stood facing off against their Volturi hosts, Aro (Michael Sheen), Jane (Dakota Fanning), and Alec (Cameron Bright). In the scene, Edward rushes forward to stop Aro from "testing" vampire powers on Bella, only to suffer the crippling pain of Jane's power. It was a tough scene; the set was eerily quiet, save for the sound of Pattinson's body hitting the ground with every take.
While the first Twilight film used plenty of wire work to achieve the look of vampires running/climbing with effortless ease (an effect criticized for a lack of weightiness and realism), wires here were being used in quite a different way. Stunt coordinator JJ Makaro, who paused for a moment to chat, said that the crew was making deliberate pains to make New Moon's action look more realistic.
"We have wire work, but we're really trying to not do a lot of it," he explained. "We don't want to get into the Hong Kong - floaty stuff that you see all the time, vampires hanging in the air and all of that. It's a tough call, because wires are wires, and the inherent problem with them is exactly that. They get floaty on you. So we're having a heck of a time trying to find the balance that gives us enough to make it supernatural without it being over the top."Next: We get kicked off the set, Stewart turns it on for the cameras, and Pattinson plays up the pain
Pattinson wore a dark burgundy hooded robe, his chest exposed. And yes, it was impeccably hairless and like alabaster, just as Meyer wrote it. Girls will swoon. Greene stood next to him, wearing a white and gray striped robe and red gloves. Stewart stood between them in black jeans, a short sleeved shirt, and sneakers.
As Pattinson rushed forward, wires attached to his clothing were rigged to jerk him back the moment that Jane's attack -- an invisible psychosomatic blast of pain -- hit him. He grimaced in pain as the camera closed in, neck muscles straining with effort. Finally, he fell to his knees before collapsing on the ground with a loud thud.
Behind the stage, Meyer and screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg sat together, nodding in agreement. It looked good on the monitors.
One problem: the wires were tugging Pattinson's robe too much, and would be visible in the film. The crew reset and shot it again. Thud. We began to appreciate Pattinson's commitment.

Day One: Production had just passed the halfway point when we arrived on set at the Vancouver Film Studios in May, where The Twilight Saga: New Moon -- or rather, the Untitled Sports Movie, its secret working title -- was weeks away from completion. Scenes featuring Jacob Black and the Wolf Pack had for the most part been filmed. Production was packing up the next week to do the last leg of shooting in Montepulciano, Italy, where Bella would make her fateful run across the town square to stop Edward from committing the ultimate sacrifice. Finicky weather had forced last-minute changes to the shooting schedule, but we'd be given a glimpse that few outsiders had yet seen: the unveiling of New Moon's Volturi.
Inside, a large stage was dressed in meticulous detail as the inner chamber of the Volturi, the ancient Italian vampires who rule the vampire world who appear in the second, third, and fourth Twilight books. The gold-accented central room in this "underground" lair, hidden, according to the book, in tunnels under the town of Volterra, Italy, is an ornate and refined circular room with 30 foot-high ceilings that give it a stark airiness, punctuated by beautiful marble tiled floors and Latin inscriptions.
A sample passage, commemorating the "history" of the vampire race in Latin, reads, "liberte te ex inferis" -- translated, "Save yourself from Hell." (Coincidentally, the same phrase is also inscribed on the blast door in Lost.) Details like these lent a believable sense that history -- even the fictional, vampire kind --is written into the very architecture of the Volturi headquarters.
The centerpiece of the chamber held three throne-like chairs, belonging to the Volturi leaders Aro (Michael Sheen), Marcus (Christopher Heyerdahl), and Caius (Jamie Campbell-Bower). Standing at attention were all of the Volturi guards, all dressed in vaguely European-style finery -- dark hues, sharp lines, and in a range of period styles.
In the midst of it all, cast newcomers Cameron Bright (who plays the psychically-powered Alec), and Dakota Fanning (portraying Alec's sadistic twin, Jane), were playing out reaction shots (to scenes that hadn't yet been shot!) before their days ended early, ostensibly due to child labor laws.
Focus fell particularly on Fanning, dressed in a soft, vintage-style white dress, a dark velvet cape, and Mary Janes. Her blonde hair swept into a bun, with pale skin and scarlet lips and dark eye makeup, she had the look of a textbook Little Red Riding Hood -- albeit one with blood-red eyes and a steely eeriness about her. "She's immune to all of us," Michael Sheen as Aro mused, directing his warrior to turn her pain-inducing powers on Bella. "Shall we, Jane?"
With nary a peep, Fanning's eyes lit up. She turned her head towards Bella/Kristen Stewart, and gave a slight, cruel smile. Well, the hint of a smile, really. The tension was palpable; in that miniscule movement I was sold on Fanning -- at 15 years of age, one of New Moon's seasoned veterans -- and her ability to convey unadulterated malice. On film, you'll see her bring poor Robert Pattinson to his knees, and you might even enjoy it.
Next: Michael Sheen brings Aro gleefully to life, Bella offers herself to save Edward, and Stephenie Meyer and Melissa Rosenberg react to dailies. Click here to read more
Noot Seear is no stranger to playing a vamp, at least where fashion folk are concerned. The 25-year-old Canadian catwalker has spent the last 12 years strutting down runways for the likes of Alexander Wang and Proenza Schouler, displaying the kind of chiseled cheekbones and perfect pout that could lure any unsuspecting fellow.
This fall, she’ll get to show off a more literal take on her man-eating side when she makes her film debut in “New Moon,” the much-anticipated second installment in the “Twilight” series, which hits theaters Nov. 20. Seear tackles the role of Heidi, a member of an elite group of vampires known as the Volturi. Her special talent is — what else? — seducing human prey.
But looks that could kill were only part of the job description, according to “New Moon” director Chris Weitz.
“We wanted someone who had an unearthly and unlikely beauty, but could also convey humor and menace,” explains Weitz, who reportedly also considered AnnaLynne McCord of “90210” before eventually settling on Seear. “It’s rare to find a stunningly attractive person who also happens to have the ability to act.”
Certainly Seear has the first part of the equation down. Discovered by a scout at 13, the model (born Renata Seear) left her native Vancouver for New York City, where she booked the Calvin Klein show within a week.
“And that was it. I wasn’t going back to Canada,” she recalls.
Twelve years later, Seear has a solid portfolio full of high-profile gigs, including print ads for Chanel and Pantene Pro-V. And while she’s probably most recognizable for posing as Mona Lisa in a 1998 Yves Saint Laurent campaign, Seear is by no means a household name. “I have this representation where they’ve never overexposed me,” she says.

Spending the day on the set of her new movie, Kristen Stewart was spotted plugging away on “The Runaways” in Los Angeles on Sunday (July 19).
Joined by co-star Dakota Fanning and fellow band characters, all of the members had shirts on showing their names as they strolled about the set.
Directed by Floria Sigismondi, the rocker chick flick is described as “a coming-of-age biopic about ‘70s teenage band The Runaways.”
Making sure everything goes according to plan, singer Joan Jett was also on-hand for the day’s filming - as she’s been a mainstay on the set throughout production.
According to an interview with director Chris Weitz in the Los Angeles Times, the soundtrack for The Twilight Saga: New Moon will feature music from Muse, Radiohead, Band of Skulls, and others. The interview is a July update at the end of an article recounting a May visit to the New Moon set in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The director also revealed that, at Comic-Con International in San Diego this Thursday, he will be releasing footage from the film that has never been seen before. The sequence of scenes will include an action scene with special effects and a love scene.
Stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will soon be heading back to the Canadian city to begin filming Eclipse--the third installment of the Twilight series based on the fantasy books by Stephenie Meyer.
Thursday's crazy madness will be the Twilight: New Moon panel. Heartthrob Rob Pattinson will appear (reminder: must pack earplugs) with co-stars Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner and director Chris Weitz, but lovelorn vampire Edward Cullen isn't the main character in the movie, so Pattinson won't participate in any backstage interviews. Summit is screening Twilight for the fans with cast members on hand. Summit is scheduled to film the third installment of the Twilight Saga, Eclipse, from August 17 through October 31 in Vancouver with David Slade (30 Days of Night) directing Melissa Rosenberg's screenplay.Source: Variety
ADELAIDE actor Xavier Samuel is on his way to stardom, landing a role in the massive Twilight movie franchise.
Xavier, 25, will star as new vampire Riley in Eclipse, the third film in the series based on Stephenie Meyer's books.
He won the part against established actors including Tom ``Draco'' Felton from the Harry Potter films and Channing Tatum (G. I. Joe)..
``I was up against some truly great actors who I'm privileged to be considered among,'' he said from Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles where he was celebrating last night.
``It's a fantastic opportunity.''
Xavier explains he'd put together his audition tape in Sydney just three weeks ago, and flew to LA last Thursday.
``It all happened in less than a month!'' said Xavier, who graduated from the Flinders University Drama Centre in 2005.
He has starred in a few low-profile Australian movies, including September and Newcastle , and two months ago filmed low-budget thriller Road Train in the Flinders Ranges.
Eclipse, his first Hollywood film, follows Bella (Kristen Stewart) as she tries to choose between two loves: the vampire Edward (Robert Pattinson) and werewolf Jacob (Taylor Lautner).
Xavier's character is a student ``seduced by the villain Victoria, who manipulates him in order to seek her revenge'', he said. ``That's as much as I know really!''
The movie of Twilight has made $478 million at the box office and sequel New Moon is due in cinemas in November. Eclipse starts filming in Vancouver, Canada, next month and will be released in June.
Xavier will be coming back to Australia before filming starts for the premiere of his new film, The Loved Ones, at the Melbourne International Film Festival on July 30.
``Hopefully, I'll get to spend some time in Adelaide with my family and friends as well,'' he said.
With Thursday's The Twilight Saga: New Moon panel coming up, there are a couple of pieces of information you might want to know if you are planning to attend.
First of all, after all of the information that we received about "The Twilight Experience," there was a little bit of confusion.
Here are the full details (and it should clear up any confusion and remaining questions). Tickets for the event will be available for $10.00 online at Fandango. The tickets will go on sale sometime between 9:00 and 9:30 a.m. on Monday, July 20th (Pacific Time). Once you've purchased the tickets, you will need to pick them up before Thursday (July 23rd) at 1:00 p.m. (Pacific Time).
The event is one-night only, but there will be "multiple staggered showings of Twilight that will take place; doors will open at 5:30 p.m. with admission on a first-come first-serve basis. There is a two-tickets-per-person limit, and you will need the physical ticket to enter (but Comic-Con badges aren't required).
On another note, Variety has reported that both Remember Me star Robert Pattinson and The Runaways Kristen Stewart will be attending Comic-Con, but that Pattinson won't participate in backstage interviews at the event. Jamie Campbell-Bower, on the other hand, will be available for an autograph session on Friday, July 24th. He will be promoting his film The Prisoner alongside Jim Caviezel and Lennie James from 12:45-1:45 in Autograph Area 7.
Before the vampire Edward Cullen, there was the Hogwarts student Cedric Diggory. British actor Robert Pattinson went from the mega-franchise of "Harry Potter" in 2005's "Goblet of Fire" to the mega-franchise of last year's "Twilight."
Now that Pattinson has entered a world in which bloodsuckers chill Stateside — and now that he must contend with Twilighters going wild for every bit of RPattz gossip out there — Daniel Radcliffe looks at his onetime "Potter" co-star's career arc as educational.
"It's really interesting for me, as somebody who is a central feature of a pretty huge franchise," said Radcliffe, who returns as Harry Potter in the "Half-Blood Prince" on Wednesday (July 15). "It's interesting to watch — because I haven't seen 'Twilight' — and to suddenly be able to just watch another franchise go massive is really interesting."
"Twilight" has given Radcliffe a chance to understand how an everyday fan must react to his own franchise. "I have no concept of what 'Potter' looks like to the rest of the world because I'm so involved in it," he explained. "So to watch 'Twilight' kind of explode globally had been fascinating."

Us Weekly has obtained brand new dripping-wet photos of "Twilight" hunk Robert Pattinson in their new issue.
Rob shows off his stomach and grins in one pic. In another, he runs his hands through his famously tousled hair while brooding, as only he can.
And then there's that soaking-wet look.
"They threw a bucket of water on him!" a source on the Rolling Stone photo shoot set tells Us of his wet T-shirt look. "He was willing to do anything. Didn't complain at all."
That's our Robert. He's nothing if not game.
Google might want to brace for a search onslaught: An unknown Australian actor named Xavier Samuel has landed the first new role in “Eclipse,” the third “Twilight” pic.
Summit has hired the actor to play the role of a “newborn vampire” named Riley, a good-looking college student who joins the plot of villain Victoria to murder protagonist Bella (Kristen Stewart). Riley is corrupted by Victoria, for whom he has an inexplicable weakness. The movie’s larger plot centers on a choice Bella must make between the werewolf Jacob (Taylor Lautner) and the vampire Edward (Robert Pattinson).
