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.

Did you know? Kristen Stewart wore hair pieces so they didn't have to waste time doing her hair, and therefore had more time to shoot. Read More

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

In the final credits, "Emmett" is misspelled.

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

The entire film was completely shot in 48 days.

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

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

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.

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

Lily Collins was initially considered to play the role of Bella Swan.
