Comic Con New Moon Panel Report

Alphie and Be My Escape just got in from the New Moon Panel and clip screening.  After sitting through some great footage of A Christmas Carol, Alice in Wonderland, and yes Tron, as well as listening to the Q&A with Bob Zemeckis followed by Tim Burton and Johnny Depp, we finally got to hear the Summit panel.

Of course the screaming rivaled that for the Beatles, but eventually died down so that we could have some real Q&A time with Chris Weitz, Rob Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, and Ashley Greene.  One of the most memorable questions was when they were all asked about what they were looking forward to doing in future films.  Ashley said she wanted to do the heavy fight scene in Eclipse.  Taylor said he was looking forward to the deeper love triangle and the tent scene.  But it was Rob and Kristen’s answers that really got the crowd reaction.  Kristen said she couldn’t wait to REALLY get pregnant, putting a jib in the many media outlets that was posted rumors to the fact that she was already pregnant.  Then Rob said he was looking forward to the cesarean birth in Breaking Dawn.  Much laughter will be heard on our footage once we get it uploaded.

On another note, the same guy from the press conference who got in a supposedly “screened” personal question again showed up in Hall H (how he accomplished this when Pel couldn’t even get back in is beyond us).  His question this time was about how they managed to portray Dracula… and he said it with plastic fangs in his mouth.  Not even cool and the panel pretty much just moved on.

The two clips that were shown… and I state this now that there are spoilers here… were of Bella and Jacob and the motor bikes and Bella trying to save Edward before he steps into the sun.

We will post footage of the Q&A as soon as we can get back to the hotel and get some power to the camera!  Other than that, I’ll wrap up now so that those of you who don’t want to spoiled won’t have to read any further.

SPOILERS!!

WARNING!  There are spoilers here, so look away if you really don’t want to know!

For the first clip, Jacob shows Bella how to work the bike, and as she reeves the engine a “ghost” of Edward appears.  This spurs her on and she heads down the road passing multiple “ghosts” on her way until she crashes.  Jacob rushes to her and worries over the bleeding gash on her forehead.  She apologizes for the blood, to which he says, “it’s only blood, Bella,” and removes his shirt so he can use it to clean her up.  Bella gives him the once over and tells him he’s kinda beautiful.  He then asks her is she maybe bumped her head too hard.

The second scene was of Alice and Bella driving through Volterra surrounded by the people in red robes.  Bella darts out of the car and rushes through the crowds toward the clock tower.  She sees Edward just as he is opening up his shirt and getting ready to step out into the sun.  She darts over though the fountain telling him to stop and then… the footage ends.  Great teaser there!

  13. did you get to film the clips? will these scenes be released to the public? its rather unfair if they dont- Im in ireland and as huge a fan as i am of the series, flying to america for me just wasnt an option i could affoed. i think the scenes should be released to the public. its not fair if only the people who could attend get to see them- those people already got the privelage to be at the event in the first place. give the rest of us something to enjoy from it!!!

    shona,
    Ireland

  17. why on earth did melissa rosenberg change jacob’s response to bella apologizing for bleeding??? the line in the book is brilliant, the line from the movie is utterly mediocre.

    “why are you apologizing for bleeding?” > “it’s just blood, bella.”

  41. yungtay4 says:

    heres the link to the 2 clips from newmoonmovie.org.. there not the best quality videos but here they are

    http://www.newmoonmovie.org/2009/07/two-new-new-moon-clips-from-comic-con/

  42. you can always find them on youtube. they’re not the best quality but it’s better than nothing :)

  43. I don’t care if they’re spoilers! I just need to watch them!

  44. Just wanted to pop in and say that I agree with everyone who said the clips are awesome! As someone who was lucky enough to see them in person, I couldn’t agree more.

    I think Chris Weitz is doing an incredible job, and he really wants to please the fans. He even said during the Q&A that he watched the fan reactions to the trailer! I thought that was pretty amazing. :)

    And the actors’ performances were great. I thought Rob’s portrayal of Edward’s heartbreak in Volterra was particularly outstanding; the expression on his face was so beautiful. But I already wrote a huge entry about the experience elsewhere, so I’ll just leave it at that, haha. ;)
