THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON Comic Con 2009 Panel
THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON Comic Con 2009 Panel can be summed up in four letters: OMFG. While the mayhem was slightly tamer than last year, there was still mayhem, especially when Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner were on the big screen.
After wiping off the blood from my ears, I managed to snap a few pictures, record some cool footage before crawling down on the floor and begging for the ringing in my ears to stop. (FYI, don’t worry about me too much. The paramedics assure me that the hearing loss will only be temporary and that one day, I will be able to stop having panic attacks when I see Twilight fans).
But all kidding aside, all and all this was a pretty fun panel. As you can see Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Ashley Greene were all in attendance, but the director Chris Weitz stole the show with pretty witty humor and the clips that were shown were really great picks. Unfortunately, we could not record the footage as that was strictly prohibited but believe me when I tell you that it looked great.
The first scene they showed was the one where Jacob teaches Bella how to drive her motorcycle. But of course, on her first try, Bella crashes and Jacob comes to see if she’s ok. He notices she is bleeding and takes off his shirt revealing…Taylor Lautner’s new six pack abs. I have to give him props from totally transforming himself into Jacob, he looks really great.
The one thing that I am not too sure yet about the scene though, is how they portrayed Bella’s hallucinations of Edward. He seems more like a ghost that appears and disappears as she’s driving the motorcycle, which is not exactly how I pictured it. I guess it might seem better in the movie if we’re gradually exposed to it.
The second clip was the famous Italy scene where Alice and Bella are driving to stop Edward from walking into daylight and revealing what he is. The scene starts as Alice drops off Bella so that she can run to Edward. As Bella runs to find Edward the rest of the scene is in slow motion. Bella runs to the plaza and finally sees Edward, who is slowly unbuttoning his shirt and getting himself ready to walk into the sunlight. We then see Bella running towards him and screaming his name, and just as Edward is about to take his final step… the clip ends…WHAT?! Seriously, how can you do this to us?! So yeah, it looks awesome.
