The film "Twilight Saga: New Moon": actors, roles, plot. Reviews and reviews

Actors and the role of the movie "Twilight. Saga. New Moon "make an indelible impression on the viewer: one part of the audience adores the picture, the other - hates. What is there in this tape, that it causes such heated debates and bright emotions among the public? Let's try to understand.

Film crew

A new wave of "vampire hysteria" began among teenagers back in 2008, when the first part of "Twilight" appeared on the screens. Then the film had a certain success with the viewer, although it was not without criticism in the press. Nevertheless, the project was considered cost-effective, and it was decided to begin shooting the second part of the saga.

The film crew of the movie "Twilight. Saga. New Moon "has changed a little. In the director's chair instead of Kathryn Hardwick Chris Weitz sat, who in 1999 was famous for his comedy work "American Pie". However, this time the director had to do something unlike his style, namely the melodrama in the genre of fantasy.

Melissa Rosenberg was involved in adapting the script, taking into account the novel written by Stephenie Meyer . Javier Agirresarobe, who also directed Ghayi's Ghosts and Vicki, stood behind the camera. Christina. Barcelona ". For the production of the picture took the film company Summit Entertainment.

Short story

The film "Twilight. Saga. New Moon ", the description of which is not difficult to fit in several paragraphs, has a simple plot.

Bella (man) and Edward (vampire) are doing well: they found out that they like each other, are ready for a relationship, and the Edward family is not against this idea. But during one of the family holidays, Cullen's brother, at the sight of Bella on the arm of her blood, loses her mind and tries to bite the girl. After this Edward begins to torment his conscience, he considers his decision to start a relationship with the man of a selfish mistake. Therefore, she tells her friend that she does not love her, that he does not need him and that he leaves the city forever.

Further events develop in the best traditions of melodramas: Bella suffers, Edward suffers, on the horizon there is an opponent - and now the viewer is already watching the love triangle. In the final, Bella still makes a choice in favor of a vampire.

The actors "Twilight. Saga. New Moon: Kristen Stewart

Actress Kristen Stewart got into the project when she was only eighteen, and finished shooting in it when she turned twenty-two. Despite the fact that until "Twilight" Stewart has repeatedly starred in the movies, she, unfortunately, looked worse in the frame.

First of all, there is a complete lack of emotions in Kristen, especially when it comes to facial expressions. In the picture "Twilight. Saga. New Moon "(The Twilight Saga: New Moon) actors Stewart and Pattinson play serious passions before the camera. However, the expression on Kristen's face is always about the same - complete disregard. On the Internet about this occasion appeared joking photocaptures.

But the image of Bella Swan, even in the inept performance of Stewart, is attractive enough, especially for young ladies. Looking at her, each young lady must have represented herself in this image, so nobody was particularly picky about playing the actress. Nevertheless, professional critics still awarded Miss Stewart "Golden Raspberry" in 2009.

"Dusk. Saga. New Moon ": actors and roles. Robert Pattison

Not far away from his partner more experienced Robert Pattinson. His "exhausted" longing and a wax mask on his face brought the actor a nomination for the Golden Raspberry award, a prize given to the worst performers.

In the picture "Twilight. Saga. New Moon "actors Pattinson and Stewart, or rather, their characters, dream of being together and experiencing each other an irresistible craving, but if one does not delve into the proposed circumstances, but simply watch a movie without sound, then for no reason you will not guess that Before you in love. Perhaps, the real relationships that existed between them during the shootings and were broken with a bang in 2012 due to the betrayal of Stewart made it difficult for the heroes to liberate themselves.

Nevertheless, on the screen Edward and Bella, after all the misadventures, finally decide to get married and be together until they are separated by death. This line is devoted to all the subsequent parts of the "twilight" saga.

Taylor Lautner as a Werewolf

In the picture "Twilight. Saga. New Moon "actors Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart also for a while turn into a screen pair. When Edward disappears from the life of Bella, the girl falls into a serious depression. And at this moment next to her is a loyal and loyal friend Jacob - an Indian from the reservation.

Gradually, he begins to feel attracted to his girlfriend, but Bella stubbornly does not notice this. When Jacob's secret is revealed, and it becomes known that he is actually a werewolf, the situation only gets complicated: from now on the guy competes with Cullen not only for the girl, but also for the territory on which vampires should not appear.

Also, the young man protects with all his strength the beloved of the vampire Victoria, who is going to destroy the girl in retaliation for the long-standing conflict with the Cullens. As a result, relations are so intertwined between this trinity that the love triangle is allowed only in the final part of the film.

Peter Facinelli as Carlyle

In the melodrama "Twilight. Saga. New Moon "actors Ashley Greene, Elizabeth Reaser, Jackson Rathbone, Nikki Reed and Kellan Lutz play the roles of family members Edward. By "family" the vampires are supposed to have a certain community, whose members were drawn by the same person. In the case of the Cullens, their "father" is the doctor Carlisle, as well as his wife Esme.

Carlisle is tolerant of Edward's decision to make a relationship with the mortal. It seems to him that a vampire is able to restrain himself, because he does the same thing: working as a doctor, Carlisle sees human blood every day, but is not tempted by it.

The role of the vampire with super-exposure was played by Peter Facinelli - an American actor of Italian descent. In the filmography of Facinelli, besides participating in "Twilight", there are such projects as "False fire" with Angelina Jolie, "The Scorpion King" with Dwayne Johnson and the series "Sister Jackie", in which the actor starred from 2009 to 2013.

Ashley Greene as Alice

After the release of the picture "Twilight. Saga. New Moon "actors have an army of fans. But, perhaps, the greatest weight of shooting in the film was for the career of actress Ashley Greene.

She played in the franchise vampire-clairvoyant, sister Edward Cullen. Alice immediately accepted Bella and became her friend. She helped with the help of her gift to save Edward from the true death in the final picture.

Ashley Greene to "Twilight" appeared only sporadically in the film "My Daddy - a psycho." We can say that the vampire saga became for the actress both a debut and a triumph. After participating in such a popular project, Ashley could quite expect to improve their affairs - and that's what happened: the girl received a major role in the film "Summer. Classmates. Love ", in the thriller" Appearance ", as well as in the horror" My girlfriend is a zombie ". So today Ashley Greene does not sit without work, and she definitely has something to do.

Other actors

In the second part of "Twilight", a wide variety of actors were involved.

"Dusk. Saga. New Moon ", for example, became one of the few acting works of Nikki Reed, which more positions itself as a screenwriter and producer. It is noteworthy that the "vampire" theme pursues the actress and in life: she recently married an actor who played a vampire in the series "The Vampire Diaries".

Elizabeth Reaser, who played the role of Esme Cullen, can also be seen in the series "Anatomy of Passion" and "The Real Detective."

Jackson Rathbone, who embodied the image of the shy vampire Jasper, began his film career in 2005 and managed to play in such films as "Think Like a Culprit", "Lonely Hearts" and "The Lord of the Elements."

Not bad settled and Kellan Lutz, who immediately after the appearance in the image of a vampire Emmett Cullen got a role in the prestigious series "90210: The New Generation."

Also in the frame appeared Billy Burke (Girls Gilmore), Gil Birmingham ("Redskins"), Anna Kendrick ("Scott Pilgrim vs. All"), Michael Welch ("American Crime"), Christian Serratos ("Hannah Montana") and a lot others.


Considering which in the movie "Twilight. Saga. New Moon "story, the soundtrack to it was supposed to be something special.

To the first part of "Twilight" music was written by Carter Bural. He wrote one enchanting and mystical theme, composed for her many variations that convey a certain mood and, thus, created a holistic musical canvas.

Alexander Despal worked on the music for the second part of the film. He practically did not use the workings of Borel, only one day the audience can hear the familiar motive from the first part. The music of Despal is also different in that the composer actively uses the pianoforte in all arrangements.

In addition to the works of Desplat, who, incidentally, worked on the soundtracks for the films "Coco before Chanel" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1", the songs featured bands Muse, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and The Killers.

Premiere and fees

Admirers of the love story of Edward and Bella were able to see the second part of the saga in 2009. The film lasted 130 minutes. With a budget of 50 million dollars at the rental was collected 710 million. For comparison, the first part of "Twilight" has collected at the box office 393 million with a budget of 37 million. Definitely, the movie company Summit Entertainment has been profitable to make more than one film about the werewolf and vampire struggle for the heart of a young girl, so in 2010 the screens went out The movie "Twilight. Saga. Eclipse".


The film "Twilight. Saga. New Moon "(actors, the plot including) was repeatedly criticized by periodicals. In the world, the rating of the saga, according to film critics, is only 28% (that is, 220 official reviews had 159 negative reviews). In Russia, this figure is slightly higher. Nevertheless, the site IMDb awarded the film a rating of 6.0.

In their articles, critics say that the material for the plot is primitive. And he is not able to save even a director like Chris Weitz. The attacks sound not only in the direction of non-professional actors, but even in the address of make-up artists: the unnaturally white face of Edward Cullen looks like a mask, and there is no hint of organicity.

Also, critics touched upon the issue of the "tightness" of the film. The action develops in him too slowly, but not even this is frustrating: there is absolutely no conflict in the picture. Throughout the action, Bella suffers from the fact that she left Edward. Somewhere in the finals Victoria is preparing to kill her, but this does not constitute a particular problem.

And then, too many logical inconsistencies slip in the plot. Edward is trying to commit suicide? But this is ridiculous: he is immortal! Why does he always appear in the life of Bella in the form of a ghost, if he decided to break with her forever? How does he know that she is in danger, because, according to the plot, he does not know how to read her thoughts and can not see the future?

Viewers' comments

Vampire melodrama is full of different reviews.

"ABOUT! The film "Twilight. Saga. New Moon "- this is something!", - exclaims the romantically tuned schoolgirl.

"What nonsense!" - say the lady for thirty.

"What a bad taste and mediocrity!" - A person with a director's or actor's education will say.

But the spectator from any category will confirm that there is a certain special atmosphere in the picture that leaves a long aftertaste.

In addition, connoisseurs of the book Stephanie Meyer argue that Chris Weitz was very careful about the source material, and many scenes from the book left virtually untouched.

In short, this film can not be assessed unequivocally: there is a terrible actor's play and an exhausted direction, but at the same time the story itself is attractive to women and very romantic. Perhaps, if more expressive actors were chosen, the situation would change for the better. But, based on what has already been filmed, this film can be called exclusively "teenage", because only at age 13 you can not pay attention to the stone face of the main character, if next to her is such a nice guy (even if with an unnatural makeup) .
