There was a German show called Mission Hollywood (2009) by Til Schweiger where more or less unknown German actresses including Annika Ernst and Margarita Ruhl should contest for the role of Vera, a friend of Rosalie when she still was human. Winner was Sabrina Frank who also really shot her scenes in Vancouver. However, her scenes were deleted from the final version of the film. See more »
In the tent scene Jacob has to come in to keep Bella warm because it is so cold. The next morning she is outside in jeans and a button down shirt with the sleeves rolled up, not coat, no hat, no gloves. However, the temp in daytime snow is far different from the overnight temps in a driving blizzard, and it's entirely possible that Bella is comfortable without a jacket. See more »

As bad as the first Twilight was this is a whole new level. The bland and tedious characters lack chemistry, life, personality which sort of makes sense because most of them are undead.
The film continues Bella's meaningless coin flip decision between Jacob the skin-walker (I refuse to refer to these as werewolves) and Edward the fairy. Every sentence out each character's mouth, particularly the main characters, is stilted and stale. They can't even articulate their lines let alone deliver them with any depth - not that there is any depth to the script or story here, there isn't.
Even the fights are bland with vampires getting snapped apart like they were porcelain dolls and the only main threat of the movie - an army of New Born vampires - ending up being overcome with GREAT EASE. Also the division of the skin-walkers and "vampires" is suddenly bridged, there's no exploration of the issues between their kind or how to resolve them, just a randomly quick decision to work together despite the fact they hated each other a moment ago.
The film's focus, instead of the parts that might have proved interesting, is in the emotionless and empty romance between two obscenely pale individuals and the muscular third wheel. Any attraction I could have had to Kristen Stewart is erased by her terrible delivery, empty eyed stare and general lack of emotion.
Bland from start to finish and painful to anyone who genuinely likes good films. If you are brave enough to see it I recommend drinking something that will erase the memory and numb the pain afterward.
