One thing I'm worried about is how they'll show the wolves. They are suppose to be HUGE but I would want it to look realistic not obviosly CG. That is one worry of mine.

I'm worried about the wolves too. I just hope that they are the way the SM describes the in the book. They are huge! I wonder how they are gonna pull that off. Also, I'm worried about general stuff, like the big/major scenes in the book. I just want them to be right. I want the whole impact of when Edward leaves Bella and when she decides to go cliff diving. And espically Jacob! I know that Taylor Lautner can pull it off, no problem. I just want to be able to see Bella and Jake's relationship grow throughout the movie. And Italy...Italy will be awesome without a doubt. Hopefully. I'm keeping my finger crossed!

:) sweet, they actually approved my request! Haha, well anyway, yes I agree with you guys. I wasn't too happy with how they showed the many characteristics and abilities of vampires. (Special effects and what have you) so I really hope they beef things up!

Also, my concern with the casting of Jane and Alec have me worried...I wonder who they'll cast! No one too old or too young, though. :(

I kind of am. I know it will still be huge, but I'm worried about the cast they'll pick and how they'll try to bring up Edward more without screwing up the story plot.

I really want good Italy scenes. The end of New Moon, from Alice's returning, is my favorite part of all the books. I want the shock of the announce of Edward's decision to go to Italy, the stress when Bella runs through the plaza, the relief when she eventually sees him, the suspense/fear with the Volturi and the "marry me first" of Edward.

I also don't want more Edward. All the intensity of Bella's distress is on the fact that he is not here anymore. The audience needs to feel her emptiness for him. And when we finally see him for the first time since his departure, it would be a thousand time more intense if we don't have seen him throughout the movie.

But I'm not so worried. I don't know why but I trust Chris Weitz. Maybe it's because I liked "About a boy".

Even though I love me so Robert Pattinson. I also hope they don't put more Edward scenes in NM just b/c Rob is so popular right now.
I also hope the do a better job with the Vampire's make up. It was very distracting to me in Twilight. It really bothered me how bad it was and that they also did not keep it consistent. Alright there's my 2 cents. ;)

My biggest concerns are ..

1. Bad CGI for the wolves
2. More Edward scenes that don't belong.
3. Less Jacob scenes.
4. Bad cheesy dialogue and uncomfortable silences (like in Twilight)
5. Added scenes that isn't needed and cutting scenes from the book that is needed!

Oh, I completely agree! They should fire that makeup artist - no offense, buddy, whoever you are out there - it was really, REALLY embarrassing.

Also, something I hope they kick up a notch or two for New Moon is the special effects department. I understand they had a low budget for Twilight, but I hope they can afford better resources to create the vampire running scenes. I thought those were a tad bit cheesy. We have A LOT of action on New Moon: motorcycles, cliff diving, underwater sequences, werewolves in metamorphosis, speeding yellow Porsches, to name a few, so I hope they splurge for said scenes. I would hate to see some tacky looking werewolf and vampires with cheap, cakey foundation.

I also hope to see a scarier, more menacing Jasper, no more of that constipation gaze. I know he can pull it off!

Also worried: that the movie won't be long enough. Please Summit, for the billionth time: give me a 3 hour long movie! Or longer!

I agree about the special effects. I really hope they don't turn out as cheesy as some of the stuff in Twilight. And I hope that make NM longer than Twilight. I really felt like Twilight could have used another hour.
