I was lucky enough to get my hands on the 2nd draft of the NM script and read it on Saturday, and truth be told, read it on Sunday too, and will read it again tonight!
It is fantastic! Although I know there have been many re-writes since 12/08 (which there needed to be) it still gave me goosebumps and made me cry.
It sticks about 90% to the book with some added scenes & characters which are very fitting for the storyline (not like the "little bottles" idiot in Twilight)
This movie will have some scary shit in it as well.
There are kisses, and some damn fine ones too.
The way Melissa wrote Edwards leaving and Bella's fall into a deep & dark depression was phenomenal.
Some of the things that were not in the script was the plane trip to Italy, and the conversation between Alice & Bella, where Alice decides to change Bella herself. I was disappointed in that-but it does get in there, just in a different way.
The plane trip home from Italy was also not in the script.
The proposal was NOT in the script...however; Chris has said that it did make it into the movie, but it's different from the book.
I'm not sure what that means, unless just how Edward asks, or when.
The VOTE is there!!
And some very scary stuff in Italy, where Edward really gets the shit kicked out of him. That is going to be extremely difficult to watch.
All in all, I was so pleased with the script and can honestly say this movie will kick the shit out of Twilight!
Quote from New Moon Movie, Edward to Bella:
"Every second I'm with you is about restraint, and you're too fragile"
I am anxious and nervous for Eclipse...I don't know David Slades work, other than his horror movies...
He has to keep the essence of the story, in that it's a love story with some scary shit...
Please keep the love story strong.

The bed scene & leg hitch

And Bella needs to tell Charlie she & Edward are getting married.
