Comments

  1. I think I’m disappointed that Rob isn’t on the audio commentary. That was seriously the best and most hilarious part of the Twilight DVD.

    • Maybe there’s still hope? Rob and the cast’s commentary is what I’m looking forward to the most on the dvd too. Didn’t Chris Weitz confirm the commentary already? Maybe it’s just not listed yet… If it isn’t on the dvd, I know many people who won’t even buy NM, so it really would be a bad thing not to include the commentary.

    • I totally agree. I laughed so much listening to Kristen, Rob and Catherine on the first one and it was great to see the movie through their eyes. Not so sure it will have the same appeal now. No offense to Chris Weitz!

    • switzy4ever14 says:

      agreed, that was my first thought, i have seen the commentary version just as many times as the regular version. i really hope they include rob, kristen, and especially taylor. this is taylor’s moment and as he was such a huge component of this movie he deserves to talk, and his opinion would be very interesting to the fans.

      please dont make a mistake, chris, and leave them without a commentary.

      <3 SWITZY LOVE <3

  2. Mella Cullen says:

    I thought Chris W said at one point that he would be recording the audio part with rob and kristen.

  3. ajtucker8098 says:

    I’m sure there will be deleted scenes also or at least I hope.

  4. tell me theres seriously no commentary with rob and kristen?! i was looking forward to that more than anything! :(

  5. I thought there was going to be a commentary with Rob, Kristen, Taylor, and Chris. Very disappointed if that didn’t happen. That was one of the best features of the Twilight DVD. Rob and Kristen were hilarious!!!

  6. I learned my lesson from last time- I’m WAITING (as much as it’s going to kill me!) until ALL the different versions come out so I can compare fairly.

    I preordered from Borders last time, and though I LOVE the packaging, I was pretty irritated that Target ended up having the best clips that others did not have. And their version came out LAST!

  7. teamjasmett says:

    Ive pre-ordered mine in the uk, but i ordered it with the leather suitcase holder, 500 only made for the uk, so if your from the us i would get them quick.

    and everyone from the uk… if you went to the new moon fan event like i did and had an interivew its on the uk new moon 2 disc edition :) i cant wait to see if we made it to the dvd :)

    And there will be deleted scenes… also something called edward goes to italy, edward fast foward, jacob fast foward and lots lots more!! check it out on play.com but sorry its a uk site xxxx

  8. i was so excited for the commentary with rob, taylor, and kristin. i could have sworn i saw an interview with chris weitz that said they were going to be in it. i LOVED the twilight commentary. it was hilarious. i am super bummed. any chance that it might fall under “and more!” ?

  9. ethelouise says:

    I am really bummed about not having Kristen & Rob in the commentary. I, too, am waiting for all the versions to be released. I bought a two disc version first, but HAD to later buy Target’s three disc version. The 2 disc set has become my loaner copy. I am hoping that the better reunion kiss will be in the deleted scenes on NM DVD set.

  10. I’m disappointed about the commentary. Plus why is it so expensive? I only paid $30 for the Target 3-disc edition. Now they’re charging $35 for only 2 discs?

    • ScarletRubie says:

      i paid like 18 for the target version, it was the three disk too on the first day.

      Also, i want the the commentary with the actors IDC who, i would like Robert honestly it doesn’t matter, just some actors not only Chris, the actors make the commentaries great.

  11. Freakin Loon says:

    So, I guess as these films get bigger, the less the cast will do for them? (ie: commentary)

    Retail Price is what’s been quoted right now. Sale price will be lower. The Target 3-disc was $18 day of release.

    Keep us updated with the various versions of the DVD, please TL! This time last year, it made it easier to decide which version to get. I’m keeping an eye out for the DVD release that will come with itunes download.

  12. Loves_Undying_Promise says:

    Well, it’s just a suggested retail price, so I think there’s a chance that the price can be lower. But, yeah, that’s the first thought that popped into my head too. That is a bit to much for a 2 disc dvd.

    I do hope that Target has a 3 disc addition like they did for Twilight. That was so worth the money because not only did it come with an extra disc, it came with an itunes download of the movie. That was awesome. And For that I only paid $20.

  13. a little while ago twilight lexicon mentioned that a eclipes teaser trailer MIGHT be on the New Moon DVD……Have you heard anything more about that?

  14. Very disappointed that Rob and Kristen or any other actors aren’t doing the video commentary. Rob and Kristen don’t do much for the fans anymore, do they? It’s very peculiar and very disappointing. I’m sure, if asked, Peter F. would have done it though. Take an example from your father, Robert, give back.

  15. i do see that robert and kristen do a lot for their fans. maybe summit prefered chris weits&co instead of robert and kristen. I`m sooo sure the other actors would have done this, but whatever. i also heard that robert, kristen and taylor would comment the movie…maybe they will sell this version extra, lol, im just dreaming.

    • I must have missed what they have done for the fans lately because they aren’t online like so many other Twilight actors and directors and studio.
      But, I also heard that Taylor, Rob, and Kristen were doing a commentary. So, maybe that’s something special coming our way, can you imagine what fun that would be? I have been looking forward to that so much. Therefore, the raging disappointment, if not the case.

      • I don’t think they need to be online to give back to their fans.

        Did they not do a huge press tour around the world to promote for New Moon? Do they not do hundreds of interviews answering the same questions over and over? Is that not giving back to the fans?

        And did they not take hundreds if not thousands of photos and sign autographs for fans waiting outside the LA New Moon premiere? I fail to see where they aren’t giving back to their fans.

        Although I will be disappointed if they aren’t on the commentary (as I loved Rob’s witty banter,) but even more disappointed if there are no deleted or extended scenes.

  16. I’m really really disappointed that Rob, Kristen and Taylor aren’t going to be on the commentary ! Honestly who is going to be entertained or care to hear from Peter ? Well I don’t !
    This special feature is looking really sad ! I’ll buy it for the movie but WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT SUMMIT !!!

  17. Rob and Kristen are really starting to get on my nerves I’m sorry but Taylor puts his butt out for this fandom.
    I know Kristen and Rob have things to do but they just don’t seem to care or look sincere about the movies or it’s fans. They look miserable every time they have to do something at award shows or fan events and I know Summit makes them go or their managers but HOW SAD IS THAT ! When most of the fans just want to support them.
    That’s why I adore the other cast members. And that’s why I’m team Taylor and Peter. This is my opinion so please don’t be offended.

    • Rob and Kristen haven’t done anything for the fans and the franchise? Yeah, right. They are the ones we can thank we have these movies. Honestly, at least half of the fanbase are fans because they like what Rob and Kristen did with the characters in Twilight. Rob and Kristen are also the ones who get all the cr*p from the press, they have practically zero privacy because of this franchise, they’re stalked 24/7 and then you think they should do more? The Twilight Saga wouldn’t get half the attention in the media without these two. Rob and Kristen are totally committed to the saga and work hard to make good movies for us. So please stop being so ungrateful.

    • I too am disappointed that there is no commentary with the “three-some” but to say that Rob and Kristen are not there for their fans is wrong. Just because they don’t pimp themselves out like Taylor does not mean they don’t care. Taylor wants to be in the spotlight. That is what he has prepared himself for. Rob and Kristen, while they appreciate all the good fortune that has come their way, are happy to just go about their “normal” lives and to continue to make movies that they care about, not necessarily ones that will become blockbusters. This is only my opinion.

    • Well, I’m WAAAAY over on the other side of the world and have not had any chance of meeting any of them but from whatever interviews and legitimate news clips I’ve managed to follow, it is evident that Rob and Kristen are VERY committed to Twilight and the integrity of the characters and storyline.

      In fact, Rob has read the books and his take on Edward in Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse, so far, has been totally spot-on.(That’s saying alot for a GUY as many many males I know simply DON’T ‘get’ Twilight.) Same goes for Kristen’s interpretation of Bella.
      They’ve obviously handled their portrayals with great care; if not, Twilight would not have been the success it was and ditto for New Moon.

      Their interviews are always entertaining to listen to and read(esp Rob’s!)and that’s saying alot when he has to answer the same almost inane questions OVER and OVER AGAIN!

      Living with all the absolutely nonsensical tabloid headlines, papps and stalkers following them everywhere, etc would drive anyone bonkers but they seem to be managing well and I think they deserve whatever little bit of privacy they can squeeze out of all the madness.

      As for the perceived lack of their commentaries on the DVD…I admit I’d be disappointed too but I’d still buy it ‘cos it’s NEW MOON!
      But like many have said, there’s still hope! :)

  18. Kass, if you’ve ever been to fan events or permieres like me you couldn’t possibly think that. Rob and Kris are both totally there for their fans and Peter is adorable too. At one event I went to for New Moon Taylor barely signed anything because he turned up really late and went pretty quickly into the building, whereas Rob & Kristen were there siging things for their fans for ages. One fan who I was with at the UK event was from the US and their friend was at the airport waiting for Taylor and Kristen in Brazil and whilst Kristen was happy to pose with them and signed things, Taylor went straight to his car waiting.

    Look miserable ? Show me where Rob & Kristen look miserable !?!

  19. Kass, yeah Rob and Kristen have way BETTER things to do than waste their time on you morons.

    They have lives, unlike you stupid ass fan girls, and all you can do, is eat and crap Twilight every single day of your worthless lives.

    Why should they care about you fools? You just nag at them, and bother them. They don’t need to be around people like you, because as stressed out as they already are, they don’t any more crap from all of you.

    So, why don’t you all do me a favor, GET A LIFE AND GO OUT OF YOUR BASEMENTS.

    Losers.

    • Jeez, tell us how you really feel!!!

    • @Writer-or should I say coward because you can’t even put your real name when insulting us fans. Whey the heck are you even on a Twilight FANSITE? How dare you come on here and insult us fans!

    • LOL!!!! That was very rough & rude!!! But what should us FANS expect from someone like YOU???? Now, when I said you were Snob… that was an understatement, ‘cuz, @ least a snob person have something useful to do or something CLEVER to say. & you… Who is the loser, then?

      • alwaysedward says:

        @writer/reader – I think you’re on the wrong website. Here’s the one you’re looking for http://www.freewebs.com/the-anti-twilight-lexicon/
        It’s the Anti-Twilight Lexicon. Check it out, you’ll probably have more in common with the people on there.

      • alwaysedward says:

        Personally, I love what Kristin and Rob have done for their characters in the movies. However, they do not owe anybody their free time. They did their job, they did the best they could, they have lives to live. They have always been polite when they have been approached – when they’ve been approached in a mature manner I should add. I don’t know too many people who continue answering phones at their workplace even if its only 5:05 and they were supposed to go home at 5:00. I don’t know too many police officers who write tickets on their vacation or too many bus drivers who keep picking up people after their shift.

  20. Well, that sucks a bit. No commentary from the cast?Rob is barely in the movie so he probably wouldn’t have much to say,but I’d have imagined that at least Tay and Kristen would something :(

  21. Well, I’m heading to the Twilight convention where Rob, Taylor, and Kristen will NOT be. BUT, I’m looking forward to a recorded Q & A. I suppose if they weren’t attacked everywhere they went, we might see more of them.

    To: Writer — are you the pot or the kettle?

  22. We need Rob and Kristen commentary. Anytime we can hear Rob’s real voice is a plus.

  23. What can I say?? YYYAAAYYY!!! I was just wondering when this would happen!! I’m very excited. I hope they do the commentary with some cast members too, but if not, oh well…it’s not like I’m not going to buy it if they don’t. I’m THRILLED!!!

  24. While I will miss Rob’s wittiness, I am still looking forward to the movie and all the extras. And I, for one, wouldn’t mind listening to commentary with any of the other cast members as well. Wouldn’t bother me at all. I like them all. Hoping we get an Eclipse trailer as well.

  25. Ok, the dvd doesn’t come out until the end of March so, the extras are probably not finalized yet. Besides “New Moon” isn’t about Edward it’s about Bella and Jacob.

  26. I can understand where you guys are coming but I’m actually excited about Chris Weitz and Peter Lambert doing the commentary–they should have included the cinematographer and the cgi expert (sorry I forgot their names!)–that would have been really cool :)

  27. la_petite_femme says:

    MAN! I was really looking forward to the rob kris tay commentary

  28. I will buy New Moon but I am MOST looking forward to is the commentary with Rob, Kristin and being able to see the extended movie scenes and the deleted scenes. I am SOOO hoping that the last 3 chapters of the book NM (Flight, Truth, Vote) will be shown in the special features, because we were shorted changed in the movie.

    They need to show more of Bella and Edward in the next movie Eclipse, but I am afraid that David Slade will be giving us more of the fight/action scenes and back stories that were only briefly featured in Eclipse the book, except for the fight scene between Edward, Seth, Bella, Riley and Victoria at the end of Eclipse.

    Twilight Saga is a romance not an action movie and that is why the readership and fans made the books and the first movie such a success. We watch and re-watch the movies because of the emotional connection between Edward and Bella. Let’s face it Robert and Kristin have GREAT chemistry and it comes across on the screen. When they are not on the screen we fast forward to those scenes and play them over and over again. Summit needs to remember that before they ruin the franchise. This is my opinion but I know a lot of fans who do feel the same way.

  29. Lyndsay Rhea says:

    Yay, it’s coming out on my 21st Birthday!! I can’t wait! XD I really enjoyed that movie.

  30. I cannot wait for the New Moon DVD. I’ll probably watch it millions of times everyday. It’s going to be my late birthday present like for the Twilight DVD last year.

  31. AliceKikiCullen says:

    yeah just going to wait for alll versions then pick from there…where is the Eclipse preview!!!?!!!!

  32. ITS OUT ON MY BIRTHDAYY! WOOOOO :)

  33. I wacthing 10 times the New Moon movie, I can’t waiting to DVD release…

  34. I hope that borders has the special edition dvd. Went to the mall to see if i can preorder it. Borders went out business..I hope i can order online
