Providing more details to the extra scenes shot a while back, "Twilight" stars Robert Pattinson and Kellan Lutz open up to MTV News and confirm that the reshoots are indeed flashbacks. At 2008 MTV Video Music Awards, they noted that the scenes will help to explain the background story of the Cullen family.

About it, Pattison revealed, "The reshoots are basically flashbacks that can go [along with] big voiceovers. Well, not voiceovers, but big scenes that give the exposition and back story of the Cullens." Giving out more, Lutz confessed that it is the visualization of the old peace treaty made by a family of vampires and the Quileute Indian tribe saying, "It's more about the treaty, and really summarizing what that really is."

Lutz who portrays Emmett Cullen further pointed out the difference of the novel and the movie because of the reshoots. He confessed that instead of showing Bella listening to Quileute Jacob about the peace treaty, the new scenes will provide viewers with the actual treaty footage insisting, "we are actually showing the scenes from back in the day...what actually went on. That's so when it's mentioned, people actually have a sense and a vision of really what it was about and whose territory was where."

Aside from filming the new footages, redo was also done for meadow scene, the kiss in Bella's bedroom and Edward Cullen's performance of "Bella's Lullaby" in the Cullen house. On the Lullaby's reshot, Pattison let out that his composition has to be replaced saying, "We reshot the 'Bella's Lullaby' scene with a different piece of music."

"I heard my original one the other day, and I really liked it. I was kind of depressed afterwards, but I like the new one as well. The new one I didn't write; the composer Carter Burwell did it. The new one fits in with the rest of the score, whereas my one was completely random, so unless you want a five-minute scene of just me playing the piano, I guess it's kind of irrelevant."

A feature film adaptation to Stephenie Meyer's bestselling novel of the same name, "Twilight" resolves around seventeen-year-old Isabella 'Bella' Swan, a newcomer to the small town of Forks, Washington, and her mysterious classmate, Edward Cullen, who later she finds out to be a 108-year-old vampire. In each other, they find what they have been looking for. Hence, the unlikely relationship blossoms. But, when other vampires learn about the romance, Bella's life is put in grave danger. Now, Edward has to fight for the girl he loves before losing her forever.

From a script by "Step Up"'s Melissa Rosenberg, the movie is directed by Catherine Hardwicke and produced by Karen Rosenfelt, Greg Mooradian and Wyck Godfrey. It stars also Kristen Stewart, Cam Gigandet, Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Jackson Rathbone, Nikki Reed and many more.

EEKK! i'm so pumped for this movie! i can't wait! i'm kind of disappointed that they are combining some of the stuff from new moon into the twilight movie. I want it to be all twilight! And then they should make new moon after that. Anybody with me on that?

Glad go see that I'm not the only over-40 that's in love with these books. Even the hubby is a fan. There's more to this story than just star-crossed teen lovers, and I think that will be evident when the movie is finally out.

I'm 26, and I loved them! what got me was Bella is my height 5'4"! I was flabbergasted when I read that! I can't wait for the Movie to come out! I don't know though, I would like to see someone older play Jacob! I found myself rooting for both of them! I wish she would go further though with Renesme and Jacob, a book about them, especially when she grows up! That would be interesting!

I love all 4 books took me about 3 weeks to finish them now im reading them again a bit slower now lol.I hope there making all 4 into movies it wouldnt be fair not to...i mean look at what happens in book 4 cant keep that from the big screen! um unless this movie was a plot to have more people go out and read the books..more buyers!That would suck for those who already read them!

I am insanely in love with the twilight saga.. I read the four books in just a week and I can't stop thinking of the most unbelivable and mesmerizing love story I have ever read... I'm so glad that someone picked this story and decided to make a movie about it... unfortunatly I don't know if this movie will come out in Portugal (where I live)... I just hope it does,or I'll be in the Uk for x-mas holidays...xD
