We are yet another Monday closer to the New Moon premiere my dear Twihards and I for one am ready to combust — no, really, I mean it, I totally am, I don’t know how much more waiting I can take.
The latest New Moon video release, from the folks over at Collider, only stokes those flames. In this 10-minute behind the scenes clip, which you can watch here below, we are treated to some never before seen (at least by my eyes, and I don’t allow them to miss much that’s Twilight Saga-related) footage of the vamps, wolves, and the fragile human. We get a glimpse of luscious lips…err…Taylor Lautner as Jacob (I know, you keep thinking it, but I keep not listening LALALALALA I don’t care if he’s only 17) getting cabled up for his first wolf transformation scene where he leaps over poor confused Bella in an effort to save her from Paul (Alex Meraz), his quick tempered pack mate who’s just been bitch slapped. Do note in this nifty behind the scenes gem that we get to see a little more of Paul from behind then we probably get to see in the movie (don’t judge me, you probably would have rewound it 5 times too…in slow motion).
SPOILER ALERT (although really, who doesn’t know this stuff already?)
Some of the best footage is of Bella’s birthday party, there’s a shot of pixie vamp Alice taking a picture of searing hot Edward and his Bella (at least for the next 48 hours or so) followed by the infamous paper cut scene. Watching reluctant veggie vamp Jasper (Jackson Rathbone) being held back by Dr. Love…umm, I mean, Carlisle (Peter Facinelli) and burly bro, Emmett (Kellan Lutz) so he doesn’t suck the life out of the snack who came to dinner, Bella. Hot stuff, that scene, methinks, but really the best part comes around 7:10 in…holy hell, it’s better than porn, I swear…smolder Eddie baby, smolder.
END SPOILER ALERT…if you didn’t read that section, I feel it bears repeating, go to 7:10, just go, you’ll thank me later.
The final scenes take place in Volterra with the cranky ancient vamps of the Volturi. Much of the footage is of towering Volturi guard Felix (Daniel Cudmore) battling…err dishing out an ass whipping…to Edward (clicking my heels and repeating over and over, please insert me in scene at 8:44). It’s pretty amazing to see all the cameras, makeup people, stunt people, etc., that are all around and so close to these scenes, but invisible in the actual final cuts. I really, REALLY, can’t wait to finally see this movie next week. Really.
