Transcript of Twilight Saga: New Moon

The Olympic Coven
...more commonly known as the Cullen family, and also known as Cullen clan, or Cullen coven, is a coven of vegetarian vampires. It consists of Carlisle, Esme, Alice, Emmett, and Edward Cullen, as well as Rosalie and Jasper Hale.
The Cullens are the second largest and most powerful coven, with only the Volturi ranking higher in number and power, but more mature and stable than most others, a result of abstaining from human blood and hunger for power.They are known to be very loyal to each other and put more value on human life than most other vampires. Abstaining from human blood takes the competitive aspect out of their hunting instincts, and as a result allows them to form stronger family bonds than traditional vampires. They currently live in Forks, Washington, which they have no plans of leaving, unless forced to.The Cullens prefer to stay in one place as long as possible, choosing cloudy climates where they can go outside during the day without revealing their inhuman nature. But after 6-7 years, they are forced to move on before their lack of aging is noticed. They own several residences so that they can return to places they have especially enjoyed - but only after enough time has passed that they won't be recognized as the same people who once lived there.

In New Moon there is really only a focus on four sets of 'clans'/'families' and a few extra's like Jessica,Angela,Mike and Eric who are Bella's friends from school.
There are some funny quotes in New Moon but also some serious and sad ones:
New Moon's soundtrack comprises songs that are all original and exclusive to the soundtrack and are performed by various indie rock and alternative rock artists. New Moon director Chris Weitz stated that the soundtrack would feature songs from Radiohead, Muse, and Band of Skulls. Death Cab for Cutie contributed the soundtrack's lead single, a song written specifically for the film called "Meet Me on the Equinox", which debuted September 13 during the MTV Video Music Awards. Bassist Nick Harmer says, "We wrote 'Meet Me On the Equinox' to reflect the celestial themes and motifs that run throughout the Twilight series and we wanted to capture that desperate feeling of endings and beginnings that so strongly affect the main characters." The music video for "Meet Me on the Equinox" premiered on October 7, 2009 and includes clips from the movie. The English rock band Muse contributed a remix of their song "I Belong to You", which appears in its original form on their 2009 album The Resistance. St. Vincent collaborated with Bon Iver's Justin Vernon to create a song called "Roslyn". When describing the song, she said, "[Justin] sings in his beautiful falsetto and I'm actually singing very, very low... I think there's something vampirey and creepy about the two of us singing together. It's a simple, stripped-down kind of song." The soundtrack originally had a release date of October 20, 2009, but the date was moved up four days to October 16 due to "overwhelming and unprecedented demand".
Plot Summary
Last time we see saw Bella Swan she was narrowly escaping the clutches of the evil vampire James while finding love with ''vegetarian'' vampire Edward Cullen. Bella and Edward's lives have been full of nothing but love and bliss however, it all changes one fateful day. On Bella's birthday, her new found friend and sister of Edward, Alice, decides to throw her lavish party, complete with balloons, ribbons and cake that could feed an army. All is well until Bella accidentally cuts her finger whilst opening a present. The result is that Jasper Hale, the newest addition to the Cullen clan, succumbs to his blood lust and attacks Bella.
New Moon is the second book of the Saga and the second film of the series and is based on Stephenie Meyer's book New Moon.

I chose this book/film for my presentation because it's my favourite book/film in the series and the plot always had me on the edge of me seat.
Edward decides that while he and his family are around, Bella's life will always be at risk. So he decides to leave her for her own good. Bella feels her life is over. Enter Jacob Black, a member of the Quilite tribe who manages to bring some joy and meaning back into Bella's life. However as the two become closer, Bella discovers Jacob has a secret of his own- he's a werewolf. As if that wasn't bad enough Bella can't seem to get the love of her life, Edward out of her mind. With new dangers, new friends and new enemies, Bella finds herself choosing between holding on to the past or accepting a new future. But what and more importantly who will she choose?
The Volturi are the largest and most powerful coven of vampires. They enforce the laws of the vampire world.
The equivalent of royalty in the vampire world, the Volturi consists of 5 core members: Aro, Caius, Marcus, Aro's wife Sulpicia, and Caius's wife Athenodora. Marcus's wife (and Aro's sister) Didyme was also a member before she was killed by her brother. Aside from these head members, it also consists of a collection of powerfully imposing vampires, known as the "Volturi guard", the most powerful being Chelsea, Jane and Alec.

The Volturi
The Volturi act as the unofficial royalty in the world of vampires, and are an incredibly influential coven. They are also considered 'nighttime patrons of the arts' as, because of their inability to sleep, they study the arts at night. The Volturi act as guardians, keeping the secret society of vampires hidden from the human world as needed. They often send their agents to travel from Volterra to destroy overzealous covens from exposing vampires through mass eradication of every vampire (and any humans) present. The coven has existed for over 3000 years, and is the largest coven in existence, followed by the Olympic, the Denali, and the Mexican covens.
Quileute Tribe
In the Twilight saga, fictional members of the Quileute tribe live in and around Forks, Washington. Many of them are shape-shifters. Notable Quileutes include Jacob Black and his father, Billy Black.The pack was formed in the year of 2004 when Sam Uley started phasing, becoming the first of the latest generation to activate his transformation, and later Jared Cameron and Paul Lahote. To protect other people from harm, they are all forced to keep themselves at a distance to protect their mutual secret as well as avoiding unwanted transformations. Paul had the hardest time adjusting to the change due to his temperamental nature, which often set off his transformation.The pack emerges for the first time.

In New Moon, the wolves avert their first crisis, when they kill Laurent, who attempts to kill Bella for sustenance, and chase away Victoria. By now, there are five members in the pack: Sam Uley, Jared Cameron, Paul Lahote, Embry Call and Jacob Black.Bella mistakes Sam for having forced Jacob into his group and murdering people in Forks and La Push, until Jacob tells her it was the work of a vampire and that they have been trying to stop the murders, and that their magical genes have been set off by the presence of vampires.When they later learn that Victoria is after Bella, the pack works to protect her and Charlie while chasing away Victoria.
The Nomads
Nomads are vampires or human/vampire hybrids that wander the world on their own or with a single partner, without generally being affiliated to a coven; certain covens can also be termed nomadic, without claiming a specific territory of their own. James's coven, consisting of himself, Victoria, and Laurent. But Edward kills James after he hunts and tries to kill Bella in Twilight.Victoria shows up again in New Moon several months after Edward left Bella, planning to kill the girl in retaliation of James's death at the Cullens' hands. Laurent also comes back and is subsequently killed by the Uley pack, although he is not a nomad by that point as he has joined Tanya's coven in Denali, Alaska.
"These violent delights have violent ends, and in their triumph die like fire and powder, which as they kiss, consume."
"Alice, you've disappeared, like everything else. But who else can I talk to? ...I'm lost. When you left -- and he left -- you took everything with you. But the absence of him is everywhere I look. It's like a huge hole has been punched through my chest. Each tick that goes by aches like the pulse of blood behind a bruise. It passes unevenly in strange lurches and dragging lulls. But in a way I'm glad. The pain is my only reminder that he was real... That you all were..."
"Don't worry about the bears Bella. My Kung Fu is strong."
"Ah sister, they send you out for one and you get two... and a half. Such a clever girl."
The Twilight Saga: New Moon: The Score was composed by Alexandre Desplat and performed by the London Symphony Orchestra. He replaced Carter Burwell, who wrote the score for the previous film, Twilight. Weitz has a working relationship with Desplat, who scored one of his previous films, The Golden Compass.
Just before Jacob almost kisses Bella, he says "Kwop kilawtley", which means "stay with me forever" in Quileute.
Because it took 36 hours to turn Nikki Reed's brown hair blond, it was reported that she would wear a wig to play Rosalie.
Jamie Campbell Bower, who stars as Volturi member Caius, originally auditioned for the role of Edward Cullen in Twilight (2008).
The film contains many references to William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, which was, according to Stephenie Meyer, a major influence for her writing of New Moon.
While Carlisle is cleaning Bella's wounds after the party, when he burns the blood-soaked gauze, the gauze forms the shape of a heart.
Most of Anna Kendrick's dialog when Jessica and Bella leave the movie theater was improvised.
The Italian sequences were shot over a period of 4 days. Red was deliberately kept out of the color palette until the Italian sequences.
Michael Copon nearly replaced Taylor Lautner in the role of Jacob Black until the decision was made to keep Lautner after he put on 25 pounds of muscle.
In the school parking lot scene it's Bella 18th birthday. That scene was shot on April 9 which was Kristen Stewart's 19th birthday.
