I Must be Colorblind, Because This Car Ain't Silver At All

From New Moon Trailer

Twilight Lexicon reports that we can rest easy, because Edward's car is silver. When asked about the color of Edward's car in Eclipse, Summit said:
“Edward is driving the exact same car he drove in NEW MOON.”
Yes, he's driving the same car as in New Moon, which happens to be BLACK. hehe. Even if that color is called Dark Silver/Gray, it just looks black to me.

  2. When I read that article I thought that was gonna be the case straight away. Because Summit would have just said it was the same as Twilight or that it was silver but they didn't. That sucks!! I wish they'd kept the silver Volvo, I liked the C30 :( Or at least upgraded it to the Vanquish. I can't understand because they got Alice a Porsche. How annoying!

  3. I'm so confused >.> Maybe it will show up dark silver/grey, but I thinking not lol. It looks black to me. I don't think it's a huge problem but it kinda bites :( You always think of Edward with the shiny silver volvo :(

  6. the silver volvo... I remember a fan won it on Tyra Banks show when Rob and Taylor showed up. Maybe the same color is not available anymore? and in the new moon set pics there is no sneak peek to Edward's car ( silver volvo). So ..yes..in Eclipse we'll see the same car as in New Moon..the dark one.
    Though..they could've painted it...it's not that hard. But who knows ....what were theirs reasons.

  7. you guys honestly!! We just witnessed 2 minutes of amazing footage, unbelievable emotions and incredible actors and you're worried about the car?? He can drive a freaking bicycle for all I care..the obsession with the silver Volvo was a Twilight thing anyway, with the line "stupid shiny Volvo owner"..
    but in the other movies there is so much going on that I don't think anyone really gives a sh**t..and they shouldn't!

  10. I'm on the fence about this one. I'm so stoked for the movie after seeing the new trailer that I'm not that upset about the car.....but if I really think about how much of that SILVER volvo we read about in the books it does make me mad. WHY WHY WHY change it???

  12. It seems to me the black is representing the fake Edwards since they have said over and over its a "darker" version of Edward in the visions. Possibly supposed to be symbolic like changing the white horse to black? :)

  13. Volvo is promoting a new model. It's all about money.

  14. First off the Twilight Saga has a cult following. So why eff up and do an ol' switcheroo on us? Why eff with the continuity of things? Gahhh! Respect SOME elements of the book. Edward's Volvo is in a way, iconic. I think every girl took notice of silver Volvos where ever they went after reading Twilight!

    Anon 8:30 pm : Although I don't like the whole change, I like your theory!

    Anon 8:48pm : If you're right, that is extremely lame!!!!!! God I hope that isn't true, I will surely hate Summit then!!!

  15. ok the whole point in his car was to bepowerfull yet blend in with every one and thats what this car does and black is a more sporty color like edward would totally go for. that car is jacked up with power. so i wouldnt be complaining. lol who knows that was a really crapy trailer everything looked black, so who knows. imo i dont care

  16. They got to quit changing things like the director or Edward's car

  17. Just a random thought - will Chris move the bite mark from Bella's wrist to her hand since he changed the car? The car I can live with but the bite mark from James being on her wrist vs. her hand has always bothered me.

  18. They already changed Victoria, sure they can change cars. And yes, Summit sucks forever :)

  19. I think S.M. should have written Edward's car as black in the first place. Black is way more sleek and classy,but she didn't so they shouldn't have changed it. All we envision is that silver volvo and especially with it in Twilight! I have been totally mad at David Slade but if Chris Weitz used it then David would probably continue, so it's Chris's fault.

  20. WHO CARES ABOUT THE COLOR???? REALLY??? It's a car, and it's a Volvo, should be good enough for everybody, stop complaining. Sometimes I hate this fandom. We jsut saw an AMAZING trailer and you complain about the color...really guys, really?
    The whole point of the car was that he could blend in nicely not the color.

  21. it's a totally different car it's not the same type of volvo... he had a volvo S 60 R (in germany it's called like this)in twilight but now i think it's a different one.. it looks bigger... but i don't really care about the car... just be happy about the trailer.. sorry for my english i'm german...

  22. anonymous 8:38 it's not called volvo S60 R in germany, it's the C30 - believe me, the rear is totally different, and the c30 looks more like a predator than the S60 R, who looks tame in comparison ^^
    and i think they should've sticked with the silver c30 & not changed it into a black xc60 or whatever it is.

  23. For those that are saying who cares about the car, well a lot of people do and for good reason!.. Because how effing hard is it to keep the same car?... CONTINUITY people really! It DOES matter, if they change a car, what else will be all of a sudden replaced or changed.... so maybe its not an actor being replaced but stuff like this does tend to take you out of the movie.

  24. ok so THparkle the fact the they change the car is so bd what about edward pea coat while were at it or jaspers hair or anything else for that matter it was a style choice. and i really dont think it bad enough to call the director stupid orsay this movie is going to be bad NO of corse not. i just think its silly how some people react gosh. the car he drove in twilight isnt even the car he drives in the book why did they change is style choice thats why

  25. anon 11:24: in the book it's never mentioned what car exactly it is. SM just said in interviews that she wanted it to be the S60 R in the first place, but it does never say 'Edward with his silver volvo S60R.'. So the car in the book could have well been a c30.
