Edward’s Volvo is still and will remain silver


For anyone who was concerned after yesterday’s set pictures that Edward had changed from his silver Volvo to a black/charcoal color one can relax! Twilight Lexicon has gone straight to Summit to clear up the issue! Here is what the Lex posted a bit ago:

So here is what we asked and here is the answer:

Lexicon staff:
“There are pictures of Robert Pattinson standing in front of a Black Volvo. Is that Edward’s car or is it a background vehicle? If it is Edward’s car, will it be recolored in post production? For most fans, making Edward’s Volvo anything but silver is kind of like deciding that the Batmobile is purple :) ”

Summit Answer:
“Edward is driving the exact same car he drove in NEW MOON.”

Thanks to the Lexicon for getting that cleared up!

    If you look closely at the leaked New Moon trailer, Edward's Volvo is black
    So they must have made it black in New Moon too

    I think that was just Summits way of not directly admitting they turned it black (:

    Actually, if you paid attention to the new trailer, that was just taken down, when Bella sees Edward in the parking lot, he is beside a BLACK volvo, then he and the volvo disappear. Summit said it is the same car used in NEW MOON, not Twilight. So I have a feeling that the New Moon car is black.

    Yepp, i agree

    hey im not sure OK but in the set pics that edward appears with the black volvo i think i saw a silver volvo too im not sure its just what i think that i saw.

    I really wanted it to be silver as it has always been silver all through the books and it seems pretty wrong changing it – especially when all they did was give away the last one. Anyway to be honest it could have been alot worse…right? Im more focused on how amazing New Moon looks compared to Twilight (Which Catherine Hardwicke literally butchered) It looks so amazing – ive been watching it over and over for the past hour and half – taking a break to write on here every now and then! Ive gone mental – my sister even had to give me a reality slap (which stung like a b**ch).

    Cant wait for the film – just hoping there is no screaming teenagers or crazy obsessed people (yes i am one – but i wouldnt scream) Peace Out Fanpires :)

    That's a trick answer though – Anyone notice in the latest trailer, they show Edward standing by his car (as Bella is imagining seeing him talking about the whole in her chest)… and that car is definitely a BLACK VOLVO.

    So yes, Summit, it might be the same car as New Moon – but is it the same car from Twilight and, more importantly, the books?

    yep looks like his volvo is black now. i hope they have a good explanation for it.

  • lani

    ahhh thats lame. was it that hard to get another silver volvo? thats such a random thing to change that would definately disappoint fans : but these are movies that are inspired by the books so they dont HAVE to be exact. we all just hope that they will :(

  • mak

    that's exactly what i was thinking. it's most likely black in new moon! summit is admitting it indirectly. im disappointed :(

    ITS BLACK I”M SOOOOO MAD MY FRIENDS LIKE NOT THAT BIG DEAL WELL WHAT IF BELLAS TRUCK WAS BLUE. in the leaked trailer hes by a black volvo summit being sneaky and saying yeah its the same in new moon but have they said that its the same one in twilight?

  • tayler

    they should! I always watch for silver volvo's now a black one??? jk
    I am pissed and if alice goes blonde for eclipse i will sue summit

  • Nisi88

    Well we see in the new trailer that it was black in NM too :(
    Don't know why they did that, but at least its a Volvo lol

  • kelly88

    it was black in the trailer i watched it a couple of times because i couldn't believe that they changed it. that like getting a new cast you just can't change something in a movie cause everyone will know that it is different so if it is the same car which is a c30 hatchback silver volvo i should know cause i have pictures and the black car is soo not a c30 silver hatchback volvo.
