THE BELLA MOTORCYCLE MYSTERY
Cast members, please let me know if you would like your photo/video to be removed and I will happily oblige!
Sadly did not get good quality photos tonight at the Twilight set, but it was an amazing experience. I got lucky and managed to get a great video which captures the feel of the scene, PLUS you can hear Kristen saying some of her lines! Thanks to cast and crew for being so cool!
Amy and I unfortunately got down to the set super late tonight because I had to play my (first ever) ice hockey scrimmage! I was disastrous despite all my (not-frequent-enough) practicing, but let’s leave that for another time
The set took place behind the theatre where they were filming yesterday on a long strip of road under the skytrain rails. They set up a “One-Eyed Pete” sign for the bar. Neat!
Because we got there so late, we missed all of Rob’s scenes. This is how his scenes were filmed, and how they are going to incorporate more of him into the movie than the book: In this scene in the movie, Bella leaves the theatre with Jessica (the first time she goes to the theatre, not the second time when she goes with Mike and Jacob)… and encounters a motorcycle gang. She decides to go on a joyride with one of the gang members to try to upset Edward into appearing in her head again. Only in this particular movie scene, they actually filmed Rob Pattinson standing right beside Kristen Stewart telling her not to go, with Kristen standing and talking to the gang member beside his bike. (I’m sure they’ll make him an apparition in post-production editing)
So that’s my best guess at the Bella motorcycle mystery based on what I saw on set. This scene is not like New Moon… in the book, her and Jessica see the gang members sitting in a pub through the window. There was never any motorcycle scenes. The ones ones in the book are with Taylor Lautner on dirtbikes and he wasn’t there. (He was filming the scenes where he jumped from Bella’s window at the Swan house set tonight) What do you think? Why is Kristen on a motorcycle when it’s not in the books?
So check out this video. SO COOL! I am so stoked to actually see this in person. I definitely CANNOT wait for the movie to come out. The motorcycle scene was shot 3 different ways: 1 with Kristen riding on the motorcycle with the gang member… shot from the front. One shot from the side, and one shot with the bike hooked up to a truck so that they could shoot close-up head-on shots. You can see this in the video.
Listen carefully — you can hear the director often yelling “ROLLING!”… “CUT”.. “3..2..1.. ACTION!” and the best part… near the end of the video clip, you can hear Kristen saying some of Bella’s lines… “Stop! STOP!” when the motorcycle gets going fast. Aaaaaaah! My guess is that they cut to the scene of Rob asking her to stop before she yells “Stop!” when they edit it all together.
And let me just say this — Kristen Stewart is one HECK of a cool chica. She did ALL her stunts tonight, at least the ones that I saw. Props for braving it out in the cold Vancouver night on a motorcycle all evening. Major Kudos, Kristen!
Here’s some more pics from the set…
Kristen walking with the gang member (not rolling)… Anyone recognize him? Or is he a stunt person as well as an actor?
Seriously cool camera rig… wish I had that
One of the motorcycles from the set! SO COOL!
Water truck spraying everything down to look wet…
And hmmmmm… Rob? Or Not Rob? Your guess is as good as mine!
What a fun night! Hope you enjoyed the pics and the videos. Time to hit the sack for me, I’m exhausted. I may sleep for days OK that’s not true, I’ll be up for the Canucks Round 2 Game 2 in less than 12 hours. GO CANUCKS GO!
