I won't lie I'm no mommy but I love that friggin' car. I can't wait for the escape with Jacob scene it is one of my favorites in the book.
Seriously? Is that "the" volvo?! WTH!? Totally mommy-style -- you are so right!
umm .. the cars nice and all but i want the silver shinny volvo!!!!!! if they chaged edwards silver shinny volvo.. im gunna be so mad!!! there is no edward with out his silver shinny volvo!!! I WANT THE SILVER SHINNY VOLVO!!!!!!!! >:(
Awww if they're gonna trade in the shiny silver volvo, it should at least be the Vanquish right??!!! ;) x
On a positive note Bella's wig looks better!
So true Soarjet, so true ;)
hah u know what soarjet. r right lol i dident like how the wig looked when they were shooting the scene were bella goes to florida .. yea that scene lol it looked like a dead beaver on her head but i actualy think it looks better now .. so im happy with it :) yey..... lol
Hey I like the mommy car and I'm no mommy! :)I spy with my little eye one seriously FLY Taylor. I love this scene. Where he waits for Bella at the school.*sigh*Gotta jet.I'm overheating! :)
The wig looks WAY better.Don't mind the car, Edwards car was never supposed to be cool anyway. That looks like the same Volvo they used for New Moon. I guess it'll look dark silver on screen.
Seriously!!! This Volvo s40 looks way!!! Hotter!www.volvocars.com/us/models/s40/pages/default.aspx
There are 2 Jacob at the high school scenes in the book.One is when Alice picks up Bella for school and is going to be "babysitting" Bella (Edward left early to go hunting). They get to school, and Jacob roars up on his motorcycle, yells for Bella to hop on, and they go down to LaPush for the day.The other scene is after Bella and Edward get back from FL. Jacob shows up at Forks HS to confront Edward about the "almost fight" between Emmett and Paul while they were chasing Victoria over the weekend. The principal comes out and Edward is all "he's no friend of mine sir." Jacob roars off, and Bella and Edward go into school together.I am wondering if the screenwriter combined these scenes somehow? Or they could film the 2 diff scenes separately since it's the same set. Very curious.And if David Slade has changed something as iconic as the silver volvo, doesn't matter to me which model, but messing with the color???.....Strike 1=Bella's nasty wig, Strike 2=no silver volvo!, Please don't let there be a strike 3 Mr Slade.
I have to say this: I'm not loving David!!!! I can't believe they change Edward's car!!!! Come on! They need to keep the same details over and over again!!! They can't change everything all of the sudden!!! Also, can you explain to me what scene is this? I remember Bella escape with Jake while Edward was hunting?? The other one I can think of is when they get back from their trip to Florida and Jacob goes to school to tell Edward about Victoria and then shows him how was Bella before he came back from Italy...soooo which one is this??? Are they going to change this too? I'm going to be able to recognize this movie??? On the other side, I like Bella's look in this photos...she's cute and finally the wig looks ok but maybe because is under the hood? haha I'm sooo frustrated right now!!! I hope they choose Chris for Breaking Dawn!!! This isn't a good day for me! :-(
Hey guys, relax, Rob's smiling on the 3rd pic:-D
I'm with you in these Ismarie. Bella's wig look soooo much better because it's under the hood. I didnt like the change, Edward needs his shiny silver volvo and I do hope Summit hire again to Chris for BD. But lets be objective and hope this movie it's not ruined at all
I think Rob is wearing his own personal clothes! Plaid shirt and old jacket! Where's the Edward Cullen that looks like he walked off a fashion magazine cover? Alice would never have it!!
Well at least... well I think at least david know about the hair comments because he attempted to fix it with the hood.And OMG PHEW!! I was getting scared from the other pics because i thought jacob was gng to have his standoff with edward in the yellow school bus!! As long he has his motorbike ill be happy. With edwards car... oh man that is HI-LAR-IOUS!! If they kept it as a blue van or the mummy van even... that will be awesome because it will give jacob good material when insulting edward in the standoff.!
Nooo, I want the silver volvo back!!!And I'm agree with Anonymus,it seems that Edward is wearing Rob's Clothes LOL. I hope David Slade doesn't ruin the movie :(PS.I Think Bella's wig still sucks.
So here's what I am thinking after seeing these pics: The following people involved in the filming are on my *&$@! list for messing with our story: 1)wardrobe--c'mon Alice is a fashionista, get with the program! A & E clothes should look elegant and expensive not like some crap they pulled out of their locker2) hair--I want longer hair on my Edward and where is the bronze?!? and can't you find a decent wig with your budget?3) props dept--You cannot put a diff. color volvo out there, I was mad enough when you changed the model but this would be as bad as making Alice drive a blue Fiat in Italystill out to lunch about 1)scriptwriter/hack Melissa Rosenburg--you had better have stuck to the story this time lady 2)dirctor David Slade--I saw pieces of 30 Days of Night or whatever and I am very, very afraid that you are in charge of our beloved characters.Sorry about my rant but how hard is it to stay true to the story?!?
Kristen once admitted that bella was wearing kristen's wardrobe, Maybe Rob is doing the same, Edward is wearing Rob's clothes. I dont know but I got a bad feeling about Eclipse, I hope I'm Wrong
I love the 3rd pic...always great to see them happy :) I'm not really happy with the car change though, but maybe we're wrong. They might just have a different car for some scenes, hopefully :) I do think the wig looks better too. You know how pictures are always messed with, I think that's what was wrong with the other pictures. I love Eclipse and I hope it's as close to the book as possible :) Please don't change it too much LoL :)
Everyone is hating on David because they WANT to hate on him. How do you know that's even the car? And remember, Stephanie Meyer still call's the shots, and she knows how important the volvo is .. do you honestly think for a second she would let something like that happen? Give David a chance, either way you're going to LOVEEE the movie, so just wait and see, right now everything is just observations and specualtions.
that's no mommy car...i would LOVE to get one of those *lol* do you guys have any idea how much that car costs?? 67978€ and up to 121151€!!! +more if you want extra!but i do miss the shiny silver volvo *sigh*
Does it look like the door is from a car parked in front of the Volvo? It looks way too far forward to be attached to the Black Volvo? What do ya'll think?
it's a big car...chek it out:http://www.volvocars.com/us/models/xc90/Pages/default.aspx
@ sorjet- I was thinking the same- She looks like the old Bella!! As far as the cars go- Well just have to wait and see what shows up in the final cuts of the film and they can change the color with flick of a button. Luv the yellow porche
aha, i like the volovo im not that bothered about it but what does bother me is that they're changing too many little details from the book. Its whats little that matters.I think its the scene where jacob shows up at the school on his bike and gets asked to leave. ROB LOOKS delicious! The wig looks better but is it me or is her make up odd this time round?
Yes way to far forward for Edward to be getting out of it. I thought that too.
kind of like dega vu. when they were just getting set pictures from the begining of filming new moon, they had a picture of b&e in the school parking lot smiling, wearing somewhat similar clothing. all looks pretty well....except the non-silver volo that is now a truck? wtf?
Tay-tay looks fine :)
THEY ALREADY CHANGED THE CAR FOR NEW MOON, THIS IS NOT NEWS (dunno if this is the same one or not, looks like it, but they won't use the same car in New Moon either, why didn't people complain then?)STOP BEING SO EFFIN WHINY ALL THE TIME, YOU ARE JUST LOOKING REASONS TO HATE DAVID SLADE, STOP FOR A MOMENT.Sorry about the caps.
I like the car too - for myself. :) It's just that..the only people I see driving it are Moms towing kids and groceries in my 'hood. hehe. I guess I always envisioned a sleeker sedan, not a station wagon for Edward. :-)
Am I the only one actually preferring Rob's styling in this as opposed to New Moon? He looks more like the Robward I fell in love with and less tranny-liscious car salesman. Although I just know Chris Weitz is going to blow us all out of the water otherwise.Bella though - she looks like her eyebrows have been airbrushed on.
First time posting on here but I had to comment about the car. Just myself, being the same age as Rob, and I too drive an SUV similar to this Volvo SUV, and I am glad they upgraded to the SUV. SUV are bigger cars, little bit harder to get squished like a compact car. They are higher to ther road, and they are mostly 4wd, which is great if your driving in the snow. I am not a mother, but my Acura MDX is an optional 7 seater, which I find wonderful that I can be driving. Don't hate the car unless you have driven one for yourself is all I am saying.
yes yes i agee with many of you...the wig looks better...but i think he couldn't drive his vanquish...aren't the cullens trying to blend in? also didn't they give away the original silver volvo on the tyra banks show?
You know what they say about men and big cars, right? Well, our man Slade is small-ish.. Just sayin'.. Maybe we should give him a break..
@TamaraTwilight Stephenie doesn't really call any shots. She has script approval but that can be overrun by production. She can complain about certain aspects but often production can just push her viewpoints aside if they don't agree that her ideals goes with their "vision" of the project. You bring the money you have final say. We often think the director or screenwrite has final say on what goes on in movies but its the Executive Producer, the studio, and/or the production team.Chris is a prime example how the higher ups can redo a movie and rewrite someone else's vision - final "The Golden Compass" looks nothing like what Chris originally had set out for the movie and tried to shoot.Don't get me wrong I do think they try to make her feel included in the process but she doesn't really call the shots.
I liked the silver Volvo. It just fit the image of him I had in the book, of not being flashy, just wanting something for the speed. I am a mom, and have three kiddos, and live in the suburbs, and TONS of moms have this Volvo SUV. So you're not off calling it a mom car. HOWEVER, if you are a mom and have three kids like me, but are still younger, this is a sweet car to have! It's actually what I am replacing my van with this fall. can't wait!!!
Just because he's driving it, doesnt mean it's in any scenes. It could be his rental for all we know.
You guys do know the original Volvo was given away on the Tyra Bank's Show last fall, right? A lucky fan won the car & Rob handed her the keys. I saw it on You Tube.
@Mrs Finneyfrock said"less tranny-liscious car salesman"bahahhahahayeah, i'm not hatin' on the car at all. i actually drive a similar SUV...and I plan for this car to be my mom-mobile (someday). :-)it's just no shiny silver volvo. that's all. :)
Yes!! what is up with her eyebrows as well?? her makeup and hair and eyebrows. she just looks soo different for this movie. ah well. I still think Rob just gets hotter with each movie ;) lol
Guys, I think the silver car which appears in most pics (Rob is actually leaning on it) is actually the silver Volvo. We have an old silver S40 Volvo and the back looks just the same :shape of the back headlights etc. So relax...
