I LOVE the breakfast photo of Bella and Edward - I can practically hear their conversation just looking at their faces! And I love the table top details in the picture, so Cullen - the never-used gourmet cookware, the clean glass butter dish (I had one of those once and they really are beautiful), the full jar of boutique jam, the placemat that most people don't bother with for breakfast. But I am disturbed by the lack of bruising. Barely visible because fresh? Digitally added later? Please, don't tell me they're going to skip over the bruising - otherwise there's no reason to have the chess shot, which BTW is a cute play both on the book cover and Jacob's comment about playing checkers on the honeymoon.
I always knew that I was going to see it on opening day - first showing if I can. As a now-veteran of opening days on beloved movies I can tell you that the audience is typically very, very quiet, and respectful of others' desire to see and hear the movie with as little interference as possible. Of course it costs more, too.
I thought the same kind of thing but you thought it funnier, corona Thanks for sharing! Taylor's comments remind me of recent Lex discussions about imprinting and WTH it is.corona wrote:Taylor’s comments were hilarious, he’s apparently getting tired of keeping his shirt off when its cold and raining. And his comments on the imprinting… well, he is still confused on the whole thing, so welcome to the club. I can just picture his conversation with SM – “So, Stephenie, do I imprint on the baby or fall in love with her?” – “Actually it’s kind of both, Taylor, except you don’t really fall in love, except you kind of do,” – “Huh?” – “Just stand over there and look mesmerized for the scene, OK?”
Based on skin color, and that this looks like the same top as in some of the honeymoon photos, I think she is still human in this shot. Plus the rumor I heard was that BD1 ends when she opens her eyes after the conversion.Suzan wrote:BTW, I noticed something else about the cover of Edward and Bella (or is it RP and KS?). Bella (KS) has her eyes closed so you can't see whether she is human or vampire. Just thought it was fitting for the promotional pictures.
corona wrote:Interesting comments from Kristen. Apparently, (sorry about this, a little spoiler here, but it is on the Lex blog), there is no spewing a fountain of blood to start the birth scene. Yes, prior comments are coming true to form, they are going to be very careful how they do that whole birth scene. Well, if they’re going to take out the blood fountain, I’m pretty sure they won’t be doing the spine snapping either.
Always love to hear from Kristen! I guess I can see eliminating the fountain of blood although I will miss it (I think). I hope they keep the spine snapping though, that could be done not too graphically. I've always been a little disappointed that they have so much trouble displaying vampiric strength on screen, I think that people who don't read the books (like some media interviewers) miss that whole aspect. And then it will be dramatic to have that repaired.Suzan wrote:Personally, right now I wouldn't mind if they toned down the birth scene (but not too much of course).
Suzan, I love your dancing smilie!
I don't know if I'm going to get these magazines, or "borrow" them from somewhere, but if I do, should I photocopy it for you, or mail it when I'm done with it? Someone else has complained about the absence of these issues outside the US.
