Reunited, and it feels so good. A new exclusive clip from November 20’s [movie id=”414921″]”New Moon”[/movie] is sure to rock the socks of Twilighters worldwide. After a year of feverish anticipation, the Cullen clan is finally reunited for Bella’s birthday — and for Stephenie Meyer fans, that feels very good.
As seen on our movie special “Ulalume: Howling at New Moon,” the scene occurs near the beginning of the “Twilight” sequel and sets many of the film’s major plot developments into motion. It also reveals several new lines of dialogue that seem destined to become instant classics for Twilighters.
“Dating an older woman, huh?” Emmett Cullen ([movieperson id=”438091″]Kellan Lutz[/movieperson]) teases, leaning over toward Edward (Robert Pattinson) as the vampire family gets together with their human friend to celebrate her birthday.
The architect of the beautiful Bella bash, Alice (Ashley Greene), excitedly runs around and organizes the gifts, handing one to Nikki Reed and saying, “You first, Rosalie.” The beautiful vamp, who is less-than-thrilled about the blossoming Edward/Bella romance, halfheartedly thrusts the package toward Bella (Kristen Stewart).
“It’s a necklace,” Bella says, extending an olive branch. “Alice picked it out,” Rosalie responds icily.
Pushing the star-crossed lovers together, Alice then grabs a camera and says, “Show me the love!,” but you can tell Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella have a lot on their minds. Then she hands over the next gift, saying, “This one’s from Emmett.”
Rattling the empty box, Bella gives Edward’s teddy-bear brother a look. “I already installed it in your truck,” he explains. “Finally, a decent sound system for that piece of … ”
“Hey!” Bella grins. “Don’t hate the truck.”
Next up is something from her soon-to-be parents-in-law. “Just a little something to brighten your day,” Dr. Carlisle Cullen (Peter Facinelli) explains, standing next to Esme (Elizabeth Reaser).
As Twilighters know, however, the rest of the party is a long way from perfect. Opening up the gift, Bella cuts her finger on the paper, releasing a gush of blood as tempting to vampires as fresh chocolate-chip cookies coming out of the oven.
We’ve seen what happens next in the “New Moon” trailers, but this extended glimpse builds more tension and further clarifies the physical altercation about to occur. Edward looks up immediately at Jasper (Jackson Rathbone) — the member of their clan who is having the hardest time abiding by their “vegetarian” lifestyle — and his eyes reveal the blood thirst boiling within.
