Edward gets snippy

Edward and Bella in another deleted scene from New Moon. TOMORROW PEOPLE!

A Washington Post article (that kicks off with “LBH,” come on!) tells a bit about the special edition release of New Moon:

…which features the film…and a couple of choice extras, most notably a compelling, six-part documentary about the making of the movie and a happily laidback commentary track from director Chris Weitz and editor Peter Lambert. Both Borders and Walmart are selling their own exclusive editions of the “New Moon” release that feature additional content, including extended scenes and, in Walmart’s case, a sneak peek at the next movie, “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” material that frankly should have been included on the more widely available discs.

Once the focus moves to the production, though, things improve considerably. Fans will admire all the behind-the-scenes detail, from shots of Stewart and Pattinson fighting off mosquitoes during a crucial break-up scene to footage of Stewart’s stunt double, Laura Lee Connery, taking a leap off a 70-foot-high building, a jump that will magically morph into Bella’s dramatic plunge off a staggeringly high cliff during the film.”

For this, I might brave the freakshow that is 24-hour Wal-Mart in Woodbridge, Va.
