To say that New Moon is the most anticipated movie in 2009 would be an understatement. Fans have been begging for more since before the release of the highly anticipated first movie, Twilight.
The emotion that is evoked in this second book is so strong that one cannot but question if they will be able to fully capture it on film. Everyone has preconceived expectations for this movie and based on the previews I do not think that we will be let down.
As a fellow Twilighter, I have listed my top 10 most anticipated moments in the upcoming movie which will be released November 20, 2009 at 12:01 a.m.
10. Stake My Claim
In chapter 16 Bella wishes that Jacob was her brother so that she would have the right to stake some sort of claim on him. It is during this scene that Bella hears Edward’s voice telling her to “Be happy.” This is a highly anticipated moment in the upcoming movie as is all of the “hallucination” moments.
9. Midnight Visitor
Jacob did everything within his power to keep his promise to Bella. I am anxious about the scene where he visits Bella’s room at night to get her to guess his secret. The fact that Edward used to climb in that window nightly only makes that scene so much more emotional.
8. Jacob’s “Breakup”
Jacob was Bella’s one link to the outside. He was the life preserver that kept her afloat. I am anxious for their “breakup” scene. While it will not be as painful as the scene between she and Edward that made my top anticipated scene, this will definitely be a strong scene.
7. As If I Never Existed
Edward promises Bella that it will be as if he never existed. It is not until she goes into her room for the first time after the breakup that she fully realizes the extent to which he has gone to keep that promise. This scene is sure to be more than just a tear jerker.
Alice and Charlie have a conversation about Bella while she is “asleep” on the couch. I am very anxious to see how this scene plays out because it goes into detail about Bella’s being devoid of life in the period following the breakup. I am anxious to see Alice’s reaction to what Charlie tells her.
5. Adrenaline Junkie
In Twilight Bella was being “herded” by some men in the city when Edward came along and saved her. It is during this similar scene when Bella is experiencing déjà vu that she realizes she can hear Edward’s voice. I am very anxious to see how this scene plays out.
4. Cliff Diving
When Bella dives off of the cliff alone she has one of her strongest hallucinations of Edward while she is being towed under by the massive waves and pulled into darkness. I am anxious to see if they bring Victoria into this scene like in the book.
Edward and Bella fell in love in this meadow during the first book. She searches for days to find it to bring back some sort of memory. When she discovers it while hiking alone she finds more than she had bargained for. This action packed scene will have Bella’s emotion, Laurent, and the wolves all in one.
Bella sees Edward for the first time since their breakup in this scene. This scene will hopefully convey the strong emotions that Bella is feeling during this scene. She is running through Volterra, able to see him, but is not sure if she will make it in time to save him from exposing himself.
1. The Breakup
The breakup scene is the most anticipated moment in New Moon. This scene evokes so much emotion in the book that it brings most readers to tears. Twilighters can almost physically feel the pain that Bella is experiencing during this scene. Audiences across the nation will be in tears when they see this scene on the big screen even if they haven’t read the book.
If you haven’t already gotten your tickets, now would be the time to do so. Many cities are already sold out.
