Trivia: The director was not expecting the unintentional movie audience laughter when Alice's vision to Aro shows Edward and Bella running in slow motion through the woods as vampires. Jokingly, he says it is because Edward runs like a girl. (Audio commentary.)

Trivia: Director Chris Weitz did a little trick when Edward gets out of the truck after Bella's birthday party and they are arguing. They put Edward next to the camera on the right but used a double dressed like Edward in the driver's seat. When Edward gets out, it is the double and then when the real Edward steps in front of the camera it appears he got there faster than humanly possible. (Entertainment Weekly, Jan 1, 2010).

Trivia: Right after the scene where Jacob begs Bella not to go to Italy, it shows Alice and Bella driving away in Carlisle's car; there's a glimpse of them heading down to the end of the street where a road block fence is visible. That fence is there to stop people from watching while filming.

Trivia: In the movie that Bella and Jacob go to watch, there's a Wilhelm scream.

Trivia: The wide screen shot was removed when Jacob took his shirt off to help Bella when she fell off the motorbike, since Stephenie Meyer called it "Jacob's Chippendale audition." It was therefore not filmed in a wide screen shot and it was done more quickly. (Audio commentary.)

Continuity mistake: During the paper cut scene, when Bella is thrown against the table, there are 5 vases of flowers and 3 sets of candles. After she hits the table she lands against one of the vases and knocks the 2nd one to the floor, but the next shot shows only one vase left upright. (00:14:50)

More quotes from The Twilight Saga: New Moon

Question: This question is a plot hole question pertaining mostly to the films and slightly to the books, and wondering whether or not what I think is a plot hole really is. At the end of this film Bella tells Jacob that she loves him. In the book this didn't happen. Then in Eclipse (both the film and book) Jacob spends the whole time trying to convince Bella that she loves him. In this film Bella also tells Jacob that although she loves him, she will still choose Edward over him, and in Eclipse (the film) she basically repeats that statement by saying that her feelings for Jacob don't change, that she loves Edward more and will marry him. I am aware there two different directors for New Moon and Eclipse so could that be the reason for my confusion?

Answer: The change in directors makes no difference as the plot is based off the book. Bella loves Jacob but she feels that she cannot survive without Edward, and therefore loves him more.
