New Moon Easter Eggs

No, we don’t mean the Easter Bunny is visiting Forks.  For those of you who don’t know the term “Easter Egg” in a film context, according to Wikipedia it means, “A virtual Easter egg is an intentional hidden message, in-joke or feature in an object such as a movie, book, CD, DVD, computer program, web page or video game. The term was coined – according to Warren Robinett – by Atari after they were pointed to the secret message left by Robinett in the game Adventure.[1] It draws a parallel with the custom of the Easter egg hunt observed in many Western nations as well as the last Russian imperial family’s tradition of giving elaborately jeweled egg-shaped creations by Carl Fabergé which contained hidden surprises.”

So using the Twilight movie as an example, Easter Eggs would be Stephenie’s Cameo appearance and the take-off on the Twilight cover with the “edible art” routine.

So here’s what we were just told by Summit:

“Here are details on a special NEW MOON exclusive from Chris Weitz, please feel free to share with your readers.

Director Chris Weitz has a list of 5 things from NEW MOON you may have missed, available only on the Twilight Tracker iPhone & iPod Touch App.  The Twilight Tracker App can be downloaded here — itunes.com/twilight

  1. i noticed several things like when Bella wakes up from her dream the Romeo and Juliet book cover is the clock tower scene in Italy, Jacob is wearing a tshirt with the woods on it and a wolf howling during the motorcycle scene, and i dont know if it was supposed to be an egg or not but the Virgin plane they took i guess was a hint at Bellas innocence? This is fun tho hahaha

  2. Yeah, I’ve noticed that Bella has a picture of a wolf hanging in her bedroom!

  3. The wolf picture was there in Twilight. I wonder if the cover art, the bleeding tulip, is represented when Carlisle is buring the bloody gauze after fixing Bella’s arm?

    And, are these Easter Eggs going to be posted someplace else? I don’t have an iPhone or iPod touch. Not fair to those who don’t have that.

    i have an ipod touch, but my current funds are quite limited – to the point where, yes, the 99 cent app is too much – especially just to see chris’ list of easter eggs.

  5. Yeah, it would be really nice if they would post them somewhere else too. I know what “exclusively” means, but maybe after a day or two, they’ll share with the rest of us! I mean, I’ve seen the movie 6 times in the theater, I think they owe me!

  6. An easter egg I noticed in Twilight was when Edward and Bella are in science class (I can’t remember if it’s the first science class scene or the second) there is a white owl in the background and in one of the shots of Edward the wings are positioned perfectly behind Edward to resemble angel wings.

  7. Why can’t these apps for blackberrys too??? Grrrr

  8. If anyone gets these, please post!

    When Bella is searching for the meadow it looks like she has a golden compass hanging off her backpack. Well, I thought it looked like one.

    And yeah, why no BlackBerry love? In addition to apps, they can also make themes. I think that the crackberry nation is larger than they think.

  12. In Twilight: Bella is late meeting Charlie for dinner at the restaurant because she has spent the day with Edward at his house…Bella excuse for being late she says is, “Biology project.”
    I don’t know if it’s an “Easter Egg” but I laughed when I heard it.

  13. Go to the Entertainment Weekly site for the Easter Eggs: http://www.ew.com/ew/gallery/0,,20308569_20331817,00.html

  14. I think this is all so cool…makes me want to go back & watch Twilight & New Moon again! Now, if only we knew what “Kwop Kilawtley” means…….anyone understand Quileute????

  15. it means stay with me forever

  16. it means stay with me forever in quileute

  17. When Bella and Jacob are driving in the truck to ride the Bikes you can’t see them through the rear window ,but when Bella jumps out of the truck to see the Uley gang cliff jumping there they are in the back.

    • Can’t see the bikes that is….in the bed of the truck. And 2 bikes would be hard to miss looking out a rear window :)
