The movie has only been out for a little bit over a week, and they’ve already found goofs and continuity problems such as:
Revealing: Just as Jacob enters Bella’s room through the window, a stunt prop - white band on his right wrist - is briefly visible.
Continuity: In the last scene when Jacob confronts Edward and Bella. Edward’s hair is it’s usual poofed up, uncombed look but after Bella separates Jacob and Edward and Jacob runs off, when the camera is back on Edward, his hair is flat and neatly combed, then within a few seconds it’s back to its uncombed look.
Regardless from these mistakes, I thought the movie was amazing, I mean, no movie is perfect right? Even Edward’s hair has a hard time keeping it’s perfection.
The overarching theme of the vampire/human love story is abstinence, both literally (Edward won’t have sex with Bella until their married) and metaphorically (he also won’t turn her into a vampire until she’s got a ring on her finger). Ah, so we’re talking about abstinence, hmmm? So maybe about some virgins in America?
So we’re giving props to Chris on this one. There was more than just this instance during “New Moon” where it transcended being a page-by-page adaptation and turned into something special ("Face Punch," anyone?!), and this was one of them. So when you go back to see “New Moon” for your third, fourth, and fifth time, keep an eye out for the tail end of the plane and laugh to yourself at how you still have two more movies to wait until Bella and Edward can’t be flying any “Virgin” airlines anymore.
Oh the sweet irony. To be honest with you, I thought this little little snippet was an advertising stunt. But even though it slightly is, I’m glad to see that it somehow ties in the whole story together.

"Summit Entertainment looks forward to bringing Breaking Dawn to the big screen but at this point any additional information is premature."
This is Summit Entertainment’s statement after hearing all these rumors about Breaking Dawn being made into two movies. I guess we can still find some hope for the movie?
And today, New Moon makes the 14th highest Monday of all time. It took in 10.5 million. In total now(for North America) is 153 million. That sounds great. But remember, New Moon still has to open in forgien countries!
The final numbers for New Moon’s opening weekend gross are confirmed.
Over the weekend Gossip Cop reported box office estimates, but now the numbers are final. Sources at Summit Entertainment tell us “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” grossed an astonishing $142.8 million over its first three days, for a $35,497 average on 4,024 screens.
Despite the tremendous numbers, a spokesman for Summit says there’s “no announcement planned” for a potential “Breaking Dawn” production.
The Twilight Saga: New Moon dawned with a hot-blooded estimated $140.7 million on approximately 8,500 screens at 4,024 sites over the weekend, charting as the third highest-grossing opening behind only The Dark Knight and Spider-Man 3 and the biggest of 2009. With the advent of New Moon, not to mention an excellent showing by The Blind Side, overall business surged 56 percent over the same weekend last year when Twilight and Bolt debuted and was the second-highest seen in history, behind the weekend that The Dark Knight opened.
On its opening day, New Moon shattered the records for opening day ($72.7 million) and midnight showings ($26.3 million), thanks to the rush of its fervent fan base. Just like its predecessor, Twilight, the supernatural romance fell over 40 percent Friday-to-Saturday and the Friday accounted for more than half of the weekend business. On each day, New Moon essentially doubled the grosses of Twilight, which is an incredible feat for a sequel, especially when the first movie was already extremely popular. Twilight's first weekend came to $69.6 million, and, while it fell precipitously the following weekend, it held up well in its later weeks, ultimately grossing $192.8 million to become the biggest vampire movie on record (eclipsing Interview with the Vampire in attendance) as well as the top teen romance.
