The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009) – 48 mistakes
When Bella is in the parking lot at school in the beginning, Edward walks toward her. Bella’s hair is neatly pulled off to the side. When he leans in for the kiss it is suddenly stuck to her forehead, and when Edward tells her Jacob wants her, it’s suddenly back to normal.
In the scene where Bella walks toward the strangers on motorcycles, her mic wire is visible through her jeans.

During the paper cut scene, when Bella is thrown against the table, there are 5 vases of flowers and 3 sets of candles. After she hits the table she lands against one of the vases and knocks the 2nd one to the floor, but the next shot shows only one vase left upright.
When Bella and Jacob are driving back to Bella’s house after she cliff jumps, the glass in the back of her truck goes from dirty, to clean and back to dirty again.

When Bella is at the cafeteria table with Mike, and he is asking her to a movie, her hair keeps moving from behind her ear to hanging in front, and back again.
Bella goes to Italy to save Edward. Alice drops Bella off – when Bella gets out of the car to ask where Edward will be, first you see Bella in front of the car door, then she is suddenly behind the car door.
Right before Jacob comes through Bella’s window, it shows her sleeping and “dreaming” of Victoria coming to get her. If you look, the camera really focuses on the dreamcatcher and how it’s hanging above her on the bedpost. It is hanging off to the side of the middle hump. Immediately, Jacob comes through her window and focuses in on the dreamcatcher hanging on the bedpost which is now neatly hanging in a completely different way, perfectly laid over the center of the bedpost.
When Bella and Edward enter the chamber with the Volturi, they change which sides they are holding hands on. This also happens when they leave, except it goes from arm on waist to hand holding.
When Alice is driving Bella to the Volturi, she is wearing a headscarf and sunglasses. During the scene the way the headscarf is tied changes; the size and shape of the knot (and the colours on the knot) are different.
In the scene where Bella is in the meadow talking to Laurent, Bella’s hair is at first straight and then in the next scene it is wispy and pushed back and then it is straight again.
When Alice jumps over the staircase in school to wish Bella happy birthday, between shots during the scene the positioning of the decorated scarf around her neck varies.

When Edward and Bella turn around to leave the Volturi Chamber, Edward’s robe is tied. When they show them leaving from the back it is undone.
In the birthday party scene, as Edward sends Jasper flying with a shove, it first shows Edward pushing Jasper in a downward arc, the next cut shows Jasper flying up through the air as he hits the piano.
In the scene where Jacob is talking to Bella on the beach about Victoria, his shirt starts off as a dark gray colour, then it changes to a brown colour. It does this a few times during the scene.
After the ill-fated birthday party, Edward drops Bella home in her car. After the kiss, in one shot Edward’s face is very close to hers, forehead resting on hers. When it cuts, his face is far away from hers.
When Bella is flying to Italy they show a Virgin America airplane. Virgin America only flies within certain cities in the US. Virgin Atlantic flies from the US to Europe.
When Bella goes to the Cullens’ house for her birthday party, Alice takes the new camera that Charlie got Bella and takes a picture of Bella and Edward. But when Bella prints out the picture and puts it in her scrapbook, it looks nothing like the picture Alice took. Given we see the entirety of her visit from start to finish, there was no other opportunity for a different photo to be taken.
In the scene where we see Bella in her room looking out the window, the months are passing, but she is always wearing the same clothes.
Bella’s bite mark scar is not in the position it should be, compared to where James actually bit her in Twilight.
Just as Jacob enters Bella’s room through the window, a stunt prop – white band on his right wrist – is briefly visible.
The bow window that Bella sits in during the months after Edward leaves does not exist in her room in Twilight. There is no bow window on the second floor until New Moon.
When Edward takes his shirt of on the steps in Voltaire, his nipples are different colors and sizes. The closer one is grey while the far is more pink as though the makeup had rubbed off.
When Bella pulls up at the Black’s, she spots Jacob, gets out of her truck and her door doesn’t fully close . Later you can see in the background that the door is firmly shut.
Most of the wolves have visible make-up lines on their stomachs to create a “six-pack” effect. Most notably is Sam and his love handles when he is turned to the side and there are no muscle bulges just the demarcated lines.
In the scene of the fight in the chamber of the Volturies when the big guy throws Edward on the stairs you can see easily the body of Patterson’s stunt, there are clear six packs,a tanned body and no body hair.
In the scene when Edward left Bella, when Bella is running after Edward, you can see the shadow of a crew member briefly on the tree.
In Italy, Bella saves Edward and enters a room with him. Alice follows and a white lighting screen is reflected on her glasses.
In the very last scene, right before the ultimatum, if you look into the tail lights on Edward’s car you can see various members of the crew reflected.
Jasper’s hair is longer than it was in Twilight, however vampires are not supposed to have changing bodies.
Bella and Jacob are in the truck after Bella cliff jumps. During the green-screen driving shots, the rear-view mirror is hanging down low. When it switches to a live shot, the mirror is very high up.
Alice and Bella arrive at the Italian city and a huge umbrella used for lighting is reflected on the car’s hood.
In the school parking lot, Bella is taking a picture of Angela, Eric, Mike and Jessica. The next shot is viewing the picture from the back of the camera, however, it is no longer Bella’s hand holding the camera, it appears to be the hand of an older person.
In the break up scene, Bella’s hair starts off down her back and when the shots change it moves to be mainly over her shoulders.
The rims of the vampires contacts can be spotted occasionally during the film, especially the Volturi’s during the ending scenes, e.g. Jane’s in the elevator.
After Jessica and Bella leave the movie theater and see the bikers, the parked car and fire hydrant are in different positions.
In the scene where Carlisle is treating Bella’s wound there is a shot of the bowl where he is putting the glass from the wound. You see that there is one piece of gauze. He then starts stitching up the wound and when he lights the contents of the bowl, you see lots more gauze that he hasn’t used in there.
After the scene where Jacob rescues Bella from the ocean, when they’re driving home it’s not dark outside as they’re pulling up into Charlie’s driveway. But once Jacob starts talking about Sam and Emily, it’s darker outside. Even after they get to the door.
When Sam comes into the house and kisses his fiance, you can see the ripples in the edges of the plastic film used to put the tattoo on his arm.
In the scene where Bella jumps off the cliff, Bella’s eyes are brown before jumping but are blue/green when she surfaces in the water and then back to brown in the underwater and shore scenes.
In the last scene when Jacob confronts Edward and Bella. Edward’s hair is it’s usual poofed up, uncombed look but after Bella separates Jacob and Edward and Jacob runs off, when the camera is back on Edward, his hair is flat and neatly combed, then within a few seconds it’s back to its uncombed look.
When Bella and Edward return from Italy, Edward ‘disappears’ when Charlie enters the room. You can see behind the door when he is in the room that there is nowhere/not enough space for Edward to hide, but when Charlie leaves the room, as the door shuts, Edward steps out from behind it.
As pointed out by the director, you can tell that Bella’s eyes are “CGI’d brown” in the Bella/Jacob breakup scene in the rain. There is no “shine” in her eyes as would be natural, and the colour looks wrong.
In the cliff diving scenes, the water as seen from a bird’s eye view looks like a very bad Photoshop effect. Also, the wave that crashes over Bella is very bad visually due to rushed CGI.
You can see the wires on the motorbike when Jake lifts it from the truck.
