No Wizards Here!'s First Look at Volturi shares their exclusive look at New Moon, including insights as to Chris Weitz's Volturi costuming decisions:
British actor Michael Sheen (The Queen) plays Aro, leader of the Italian blood-sucking clan. Although Aro and his brothers Marcus (Christopher Heyerdahl) and Caius (Jamie Campbell Bower) have been "alive" for thousands of years, Weitz says he "deliberately" gave them a younger look in the film – for which he credits author Meyer.

"Stephenie was very keen to steer away from a kind of wizard-y look for the vampires," says Weitz. "They do look quite young, but they convey a formality and self-possession, which comes from age."


  1. Im soooo worried about everyone's eyes in New Moon:( I don't like the Cullen's (way to topazy, they'd never blend in with those eyes) and the Volturi look too bright red (even though that's exactly how they're described in the book, I didn't picture them that red, it's distracting). I hope it looks different on the big screen in the theater.

  2. Totally agree with you Anonymous 10:11. The Cullen eyes are scarily yellow. It freaks me out. No way they could go into public with bright yellow eyes!

  3. Demetri looks like a drag.
    But I'm pleased with Alec look : so great, and Aro and Caius and jane.

  4. Ooohh! Loving Alice's red "kitten with a whip" elbow length gloves! Meow!!

  5. I think these are great and I think with the right lighting/editing the eyes will look "dead on" no pun intended:))
