Where did you watch this movie?

Bella Swan has always been a little bit different. Never one to run with the crowd, Bella never cared about fitting in with the trendy, plastic girls at her Phoenix, Arizona high school. When her mother remarried and Bella chooses to live with her father in the rainy little town of Forks, Washington, she didn't expect much of anything to change. But things do change when she meets the mysterious and dazzlingly beautiful Edward Cullen. For Edward is nothing like any boy she's ever met. He's nothing like anyone she's ever met, period. He's intelligent and witty, and he seems to see straight into her soul. In no time at all, they are swept up in a passionate and decidedly unorthodox romance - unorthodox because Edward really isn't like the other boys. He can run faster than a mountain lion. He can stop a moving car with his bare hands. Oh, and he hasn't aged since 1918. Like all vampires, he's immortal. That's right - vampire. But he doesn't have fangs - that's just in the movies. And he doesn't drink human blood, though Edward and his family are unique among vampires in that lifestyle choice. To Edward, Bella is that thing he has waited 90 years for - a soul mate. But the closer they get, the more Edward must struggle to resist the primal pull of her scent, which could send him into an uncontrollable frenzy. Somehow or other, they will have to manage their unmanageable love. But when unexpected visitors come to town and realize that there is a human among them Edward must fight to save Bella? A modern, visual, and visceral Romeo and Juliet story of the ultimate forbidden love affair - between vampire and mortal.

Nothing will be the same
Filming Locations:
Audio/Video Mismatch
In the scene where Edward plays Bella's Lullaby on the piano if you watch his left hand you see he is not playing all the chords that you can hear.

Audio/Video Mismatch
When Angela appears for the first time she says "Smile!" and takes a picture, but her lips don't move.

Character Error
In the book, it is clearly said that the Cullens never touch the food on their plates. The only time that they do eat is when Bella asks Edward if he can eat food, and he takes a bite of pizza. Even so, in the movie, you can see Emmett eating in the background of a cafeteria scene. (as stated by Stephenie Meyer, they had to keep re-shooting this scene because he kept accidentally eating).

Character Error
In the baseball scene, Rosalie's hat has a "G" on it instead of a "C".

Character Error
During the baseball game when Rosalie is called out by Bella, with the correct signal, Emmett, happy with the call, yells "out", but gestures the "safe" call.

After Bella's accident in the school parking lot, the overhead shot shows Angela running and kneeling beside Tyler's van; when the shot moves to ground level, you see Angela run in and kneel down again.

In the final credits, "Emmett" is misspelled.

In the garage scene Edward closes the car trunk twice.

As Bella and Edward's fathers are at the second crime scene, Bella asks Edward to turn in to park up. The car moves right to turn in, then the next shot is the car still in lane, and hasn't moved right yet.

Crew/Equipment Visible
When Bella is sitting in the lunchroom, a man is ducked down and carrying a lunch tray trying to get out of the shot.

Factual Mistake
Clair de Lune is incorrectly listed in the credits as "Claire" de Lune.
When Carlisle bit Edward, he whispered something into his ear. The first time it was "I'm sorry" then "My son". On about the fifth take he said, "You're sexy".

Robert Pattinson actually plays the piano in the scene where Edward is playing "Bella's Lullaby".

The movie was shot in 48 days.

Nikki Reed was the one who got the producers to add Robert Pattinson's songs to the film. Reed secretly started recording him from her laptop, while he was singing, and playing his guitar. She then took it to the film producers, were they fell in love with his songs. The next day, they asked Rob if he could sing a few of his songs for the soundtrack, and he accepted.

Before casting, Robert Pattinson had never heard of the Twilight novel. He only attended casting because he liked Kristen Stewart's performance in Into the Wild (2007).

When Bella and Edward are lying in the meadow, the sun coming through the trees makes a heart between them.

For a few weeks before filming began Robert Pattinson didn't talk to anyone to try and feel as isolated as Edward Cullen.

In the scene where Bella goes to the Cullens house for the first time, when Nikki Reed's character had to break the bowl, she actually cut her hands. This is why she is wearing gloves for the scene in the film.

Stephenie Meyer wrote a parallel novel (unfinished) to "Twilight" called "Midnight Sun". It tells the story of the first book from Edward's point of view. In it, he comments that the arrival of Bella to the school has all of the boys "acting like they're in first grade and she's the shiny new toy". This thought is spoken aloud by Jessica during Bella's first lunch in the cafeteria.

Kristen Stewart wore hair pieces so they didn't have to waste time doing her hair, and therefore had more time to shoot.

When the "evil vampires" make their first appearance, actors Cam Gigandet, Rachelle Lefevre and Edi Gathegi are all wearing little slippers painted like bare feet.

As soon as Robert Pattinson was cast, he moved to Oregon and began working on his character, both physically and mentally. He worked out five hours a day with a trainer: learning to fight, play baseball, and do stunts. He also had to learn to drive and get an Oregon driver's license.

When Edward enters the cafeteria, Robert Pattinson's sister, Lizzy Pattinson, can be heard singing vocals on the soundtrack.

Lily Collins was considered for the role of Bella Swan.

Bryce Dallas Howard was offered the role of Victoria but turned it down as she found the role too small. She later took the role when Summit Entertainment fired Rachelle Lefevre from The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010).

When Edward and Bella are standing in the doorway of the Cullens' kitchen, there is a chess set on the dining room table behind them with red and white pieces, like the cover of 'Breaking Dawn', the final novel in Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" saga.

Jessica in the movie is a combination of the characters Jessica Stanley and Lauren Mallory from the book.
